Hall extensions officially opened
New extensions to The Bays Community Hall were opened on Sunday, January 29.
The hall was jointly opened by Member for Gosford Cr Chris Holstein and Gosford mayor Cr Laurie Maher.
Bays Community Group president Mr Bob Puffett said: "The closing in of the verandah and the building of an ambulant toilet makes our community hall a unique place.
"We are all so proud of what we have here in The Bays."
Member for Gosford Cr Chris Holstein complimented the committee and residents for their vision for the Bays and the community hall and said that the NSW Government supported community groups and residents.
He said he was delighted that a State Government grant had been used to improve a valuable asset within the Bays precinct.
Mayor Cr Maher agreed and said: "This hall is such an important part of this community and I am pleased that Council could help with the construction of the ambulant toilet and the opening up of the main part of the hall with the new verandah via the bi-fold doors."
Both Cr Holstein and Cr Maher declared the new facilities open for business and wished the community well for the future.
Residents and guests enjoyed a renowned Bays Brekkie and were invited to look over the facilities and enjoy the art work that highlighted the various bays in the Woy Woy Inlet.
The art work was donated by locals David McMahon and Glen Greacen.
