Anniversary of the Bywong Hall and Xmas Drinks
2014 marked the 25th anniversary of the Hall opening so the Bywong Community Association Xmas drinks function was combined to recognise all residents (present and past) who participated in its construction.
The building is a robust timber post and beam design and most of the heavy labour was provided by those Bywong residents on a completely voluntary basis. The actual construction was undertaken over two years from 1988, with people turning up for a few hours each weekend till the job was completed. There were of course many amusing anecdotes of episodes which occurred during the project mentioned on the night.
Neighbourhood Safer Place
Recently completed improvements to the Wamboin Community complex on Bingley Way, has enabled the Wamboin Hall to become an registered Neighbourhood Safer Place (NSP). The NSP system included the installation of a 24x7 weather station, recording local weather conditions. Live weather station reports are now available via the "Weather Station" link under the WCA header http://brigade.wamboincommunity.asn.au.
