Koonorigan Hall Trust

Koonorigan Hall Trust

The Koonorigan Hall was built in 1935 by those farmers who chose to graze dairy cattle on the steep slopes of Koonorigan. Over the years the Hall was used as a church, Sunday School, CWA, a place to play housie and euchre, hold dances, kitchen teas and Garden Parties. In the war years women made camouflage nets in the Hall. Life-stylers, together with coffee and macadamia growers have moved in to enjoy the rich red soil and fabulous views. There has been a BBQ at the Koonorigan Hall on the second Friday of the month, for the past 50 years. Come and join us, it’s where we meet.

Tuntable Creek Landcare & Tuntable Creek Hall.

Tuntable Creek Landcare & Tuntable Creek Hall.

The Tuntable Creek Hall has been serving the community and surrounds for over 70 years. The hall has recently upgraded its driveway for all weather access and replaced the tank and guttering and good rainfall has replenished the water supply. New boundary fencing and painting the exterior of the building is planned for the forthcoming year. Small community groups can access the hall for meetings free of charge with bookings arranged on 0448783069

Both volunteer organisations continue to operate through the ability to be able to have events like Charity of the day at the Channon Markets so your donation today is greatly appreciated.

See us at the gate or pop in for a BBQ and refreshments at the ‘Shed’.

 

Tuntable Creek Landcare Group is also involved with regeneration work, the establishment of Koala corridors and weed control with a particular focus on The Giant Devil’s Fig. Recently the group supported a grant applied for by an adjoining landowner for a Riparian Rainforest Regeneration Project in the stallholders carpark at Coronation Park, from the Department of Primary Industries to improve fish habitat. Three workdays in the last few months saw almost 800 trees planted with the added support from locals.

 

Both groups work together to support the community of Tuntable Creek and beyond.

 

The Channon Public Hall

The Channon Public Hall

Weddings, Parties, Tennis!

For over 100 years The Channon Public Hall has served as a focal point for the village social activities. Over the years, significant improvements have been made to the Hall with the assistance of Regional Partnerships programmes and Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Programme. Also thanks to you, the local community, for your kind contributions in donations and time spent assisting in these improvements. Last year we were honoured to take part in the Arts Northern Rivers’ If These Halls Could Talk project, a multi-arts project celebrating halls and the role they play in our communities.

Celebrated Australian visual artist Craig Walsh worked within the community to create a work inspired by the stories and people of The Channon Hall and its surrounds. The material gathered at the fabulous Show & Tell event at The Channon Hall last March helped him to shape his work “The Grain” which he presented at a hugely successful gathering in September 2016.

If these Halls could talk project is funded by Arts NSW Regional Partnership funding and Regional Arts NSW Regional Arts Fund. Ultimately we will receive archival material as a result of the project and we will hold further events at The Channon Hall to continue to celebrate our historic hall.

All monies collected at The Shed and at the Gates at The Channon Sunday Craft Market this Sunday will help in the constant maintenance requirements at The Channon Public Hall and will also help the survival of The Channon Tennis Club. Come and visit us at the Shed for fabulous cakes, hot BBQ with vegetarian and gluten free products available.
