Waroona Senior Citizens Association thanked all those involved in the renovation of its hall with a morning tea on Wednesday.

Earlier this year, the hall underwent much-needed improvements to all three bathrooms, the function room and the kitchen as well as the installation of a ramp.

Association president Ivy Wilson thanked Alcoa for its $18,800 grant, Lotterywest for $52,000 and the remaining contribution from the Waroona Shire Council to fund the project.

Mrs Wilson also thanked the contractors from Brackson Construction and M Barrow Carpentry as well as staff from the council for all their work during the renovation.

Mrs Wilson said the building had not been updated in the 50 years since it was built.

“It’s never been touched, for years it used to be the shire workshop,” she said.

“It’s been completely revamped, everything’s new.

“All the ladies are absolutely thrilled with it.”
