After extensive renovation Kyabram Town Hall launched into its new role and will once again be a focus for community members and visitors.
Kyabram Town Hall opened on 7th November 2014 as a: Community and Tourist Information Centre; Gallery space to ‘Splinter Contemporary Artists’ and other community or visiting artists; and especially to provide a permanent home to The Isobel Harvie Collection of Victorian and Edwardian historic clothing.
The generous donation of ‘A Stitch Back in Time’ to the Town of Kyabram, by Isobel and Keith Harvie in March 2013, on the condition that a permanent home could be found for the collection, inspired an enthusiastic group to approach the Shire of Campaspe with the suggestion that the vacant Kyabram Town Hall would be an ideal location to house the collection.
In May of this year the Shire of Campaspe agreed to contribute $24,400.00 towards the project and agreed to free lease the building to Kyabram Town Hall Inc. on a one year trial.
This enabled work to commence on the renovations mid September 2014. Other Kyabram community groups and businesses also made financial or in kind contributions.
The major key to the success of the renovation however, has been the work of a team of skilled, dedicated volunteers that has ensured the renovations progressed quickly, proficiently and achieved a totally professional outcome.
The building works are now completed and the Kyabram Town Hall opened its doors to the public on Friday 7 November 2014.
Kyabram Town Hall Inc has received fantastic support from the community and individuals and is always looking to extend its Information Centre volunteer base or receive expressions of interest for use of the spaces available in the hall.
