April 13th, 2022Lauriston Hall
Ninety-year-old Lauriston Hall has been upgraded into a more accessible space to be better equipped to host more events – thanks to the state government and Macedon Ranges Shire Council.
The building has a long history of community spirit, with two local sisters pooling their money to fund construction of the community hall in the early 1930s.
The upgrade ensures the hall can continue to be an important cultural and social hub for locals and visitors, including space for children’s playgroups, performances, not-for-profit group meetings, exhibitions and private functions for the Lauriston community.
The project included rehabilitation works to retain the hall’s heritage character, while a new kitchen, bathroom and entrance have modernised its internal fit out. Construction works have also made the hall more accessible for people of all abilities.
