Missabotti Hall Committee holds Trash and Treasure morning

Missabotti Hall Committee Chairman Adrian Weir.

LAST Saturday, 8 June, the Missabotti Hall held a Trash and Treasure event with stallholders and locals enjoying the fine winter weather to grab a bargain in the undercover patio section of the hall.

The council-owned hall, like so many of the Nambucca Valley’s community spaces, has a long history of use, in this case stretching back almost a century to 1925.

“There are always plenty of people using the hall and tennis court,” committee chairman Adrian Weir said.

“Even if they don’t use the tennis court for its original purpose, there are always people using it for a multitude of things – like learning to ride a bike, playing handball, basketball or cricket,” he said.

The Trash and Treasure is one of several annual events hosted by the hall to raise funds for running costs.

“The council does a great job,” said Mr Weir.

“We recently got new awnings and we understand how many halls like this and what a great cost they are to keep going.”

The hall is also used for local weddings and funerals but not all these are money making activities for the committee.

“If people can’t afford it, we try to help out where we can,” explained Mr Weir.

In October the hall is planning to hold its annual Hall Reunion, an exciting event which has attracted up to 200 people in recent years.

“People who have lived here in the past come back to catch up with old friends.

“We have a sausage sizzle and it’s a daytime event,” he said.

According to Mr Weir, the committee is continuing to grow at close to a dozen volunteers, a sign of a well-supported and appreciated public space.
