Have you walked along River Road recently and wondered what was happening to the 1965-built Kelmscott Hall building? 

While the main hall will remain the rest of the building was being torn down and will be rebuilt at a cost of about $2.1 million to the City of Armadale. 

Mayor Henry Zelones said the renovation was part of the city’s program to upgrade and improve facilities used by the community. 

“The new facility will be able to accommodate a number of activities and user groups at any one time,” he said. 

“Given the refurbishments being undertaken we are also expecting that this building will attract new groups to the area that may have been reluctant in the past because of the limitations of the building.” 

The new facility will include a new entrance foyer and a new lesser hall allowing more than one group to utilise the facility at any one time. 

The renovations are likely to be completed by mid-2019.
