Upgrades to Coonabarabran Town Hall

The Coonabarabran Town Hall has recently undergone a well deserved upgrade with funding provided under the Drought Communities Programme – Extension.

The Coonabarabran Town Hall was built in 1970 and since then it has been used for a number of functions including Debutante Balls, Weddings, Dances, Expos, community events and the annual Warrumbungle Arts and Crafts Expo.

“Council was very grateful to receive $146,000 worth of funding through the Drought Communities Programme – Extension for upgrades to the Coonabarabran Town Hall,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Denis Todd. “These upgrades will ensure that the Hall will meet the needs of the local community now and into the future”.

Cr Todd said “The drought funding was provided Council for the purpose of stimulating employment and providing infrastructure through using local businesses and suppliers that have been affected by the drought.“

“The upgrades to the Coonabarabran Town Hall included stripping and resealing the hall floor. The floor was taken back to bare boards and a new water based semi gloss sealant laid.”

“Additionally, new roller and vertical blinds were installed throughout the hall along with new safety glass in the courtyard windows. Cupboards have been put in behind the bar for storage of glassware purchased earlier in the year. All internal and external windows have been repainted to give the whole hall a fresh feel”, said Cr Todd. 

“The Town Hall is well utilised by the Coonabarabran community and surrounds, and it will be good to see the updates being enjoyed at a range of events. This project will have a long-lasting benefit to the local community” concluded Cr Todd.
