RSL hears timetable for raising the roof

AT long last, work on replacing the asbestos roofing of Moruya Memorial Hall will begin early in 2018. Deputy President Kevin Setter told Tuesday’s meeting of Moruya RSL Sub Branch a local contractor, Peter Louttit, had been given the job and would start work on it in the second week of February…so the January meeting would be the last under the original roof.

The sub-branch decided a couple of years ago that the roof of the Memorial Hall needed replacing; it had some leaks and was, above all, of corrugated asbestos. An estimate for the job of $180,000 was received and fund-raising begun with contributions reaching $183,430 by July this year

Eurobodalla Shire Council has offered to do $10,000-worth of administration work in the project. Cash donations have been: Moruya Sub-branch $50,000; The NSW Government $60,000; Ron Millikin, of Ulladulla, $15,000; Narooma Sub-branch $1,000; Merimbula Sub-branch $750; Bombala Sub-branch $500 and the Veterans’ Affairs Department $55,930.

Mr Setter said it was expected the work, that will include some work on walls and some facilities, should be finished by early April. A decision on where the March and April meetings will be held will be made at the January meeting.

The meeting opened with President Harold Barkley presenting new member Christopher Porella with his membership badge.
