Merlynston Hall 3058

Have you heard the rumour the hall is going to be open late May? On a whiff of a whisper I went wondering down the road. Its getting close.

Taken by putting the camera to the window – wooh hoo
Now that is a pretty picture. remind you of an old one.
The sign is up waiting to be filled with events 🙂


From California USA

Ms Ferguson
” I am ecstatic that you have saved the flea house (the hall). Now my sweet memories will remain and every time I remember going to the pictures I will be so happy to think that this beloved building is still there.

Of far greater significance than my kiddy memories is the fact that it is the current community who have rallied to save this special place and for uses which we never dreamed of, that Merlynston is alive with good people, families with healthy agendas to combat the nasty cynicalism of our modern age.

I wish I was there to be part of the real togetherness of modern MERLO !1
Good on ya, from a far away Aussie.’

At mornings crack and see the progress of Progress Hall.

Progress Hall End of March

Its getting exciting the halls windows are being dressed, the sign is up. Rumor has it may be completed by the end of April early May. How excitable. The big Merlo opening must becoming soon? Any word on the ground?????
