KAUAERANGA HALL CELEBRATES UPGRADE WITH A FUN-FILLED FAIR
The Kauaeranga Valley Hall is celebrating its recent repaint, inside and out, with a good old traditional community fair.
Built by the Kauaeranga Valley settlers in 1902 and leased by the Department of Education for use as a school until 1943, the Kauaeranga Valley Hall is the focal centre of a vibrant community.
The residents have worked hard over the years to ensure that the historic hall is maintained to an excellent usable level. With grant funding from Lion Foundation, the Hall Society decided to get some much needed work completed before winter. The hall itself was repainted; the hall sign repainted by local artist, Win Tyrell-Baxter; the carpark re-levelled and re-gravelled; a new all-access path laid from the carpark to the hall; and old, crumbling steps re-surfaced.
To celebrate the completion of the work, the residents are holding a fund-raising celebration on Saturday 17th April from 11am-2pm with a BYO picnic for all-comers.
All the fun of the fair will include local band, The Dirty Firth, produce stalls, a pet parade, bouncy castle and face painting, along with an afternoon of traditional family outdoor games from the past – sack races, egg-and-spoon races, tug-o-war, and the like.
There will be a silent auction of goods and services donated by local residents. These include a trailer of fire wood, a Hundertwasse print, one night’s accommodation in the local Mangotahi Lodge, and many others.
It is hoped to raise sufficient funds to further improve the hall and its surrounds.
This will be a celebration for all the family. Everyone is invited.
WHAT: Kauaeranga Hall Celebration – ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR
WHEN: Saturday 17 April 2021 @ 11:00am
WHERE: Kauaeranga Hall, 437 Kauaeranga Valley Rd, Thames
