Labertouche Community Hall has been lovingly restored with a new roof, ceiling and floor, thanks to support from the Andrews Labor Government.

Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing officially opened the redeveloped Hall in Labertouche today, with Labertouche and District Community Centre receiving a $117,950 grant through the Latrobe Valley Authority’s Community and Facility Fund.

The Hall is a bustling community hub which hosts a range of events including badminton competitions, weddings, funerals, art shows, and large community gatherings including the annual Scout Jamboree.

The extensive restoration project included replacing and repairing the deteriorating floor, ceiling, and roof so the venue can continue to meet the needs of the local community for years to come.

The Labor Government’s Community and Facility Fund has supported 232 community projects across the region to improve liveability, sustainability, and social connection.
