Julie McLeod approached me in 2006 asking if I was keen to help get the Pioneer Hall returned to the community.
As though I had spare time! I was already very involved with The Patch - Port Chalmers Community Garden.
It seemed a very good idea though, so I, with Dougal Stevenson, Jono Holloway, Amira Dabaliz, Stu Guthrie and Julie began the process.......a year later we were handed the keys!
Exciting stuff! The hall was in a sorry state, so we began the work, and with a wonderful & very large pool of volunteers we have brought the Hall back to life.....
There is still work to be done, always is , isn't there?
We're up for it!
