The Deepwater Hall was packed with members of the community wanting to take the chance to see the newly refurbished hall during the reopening on Saturday.

"It was a resounding success, the hall filled to COVID-safe capacity with locals and visitors," Deepwater Hall chair Mary Hollingworth said.

With the addition of $100,000 drought grant funding the hall has received a fresh coat of paint, new gas heating, and the backstage area has been expanded, rebuilt and refurbished.

To the delight of the Deepwater community there is more yet to come, with the addition of professional stage lighting.

The lighting will benefit the abundance of future community events, including charity art shows, fashion parades and renowned amateur theatre productions.

The Deepwater Hall committee are hopeful that the recent renovations to the hall will help increase its relevance as a space for all members of the community to utilise.

"Everyone was really enthusiastic and impressed with the renovations, as a committee we were truly delighted to see this response," Ms Hollingworth said.

The hall currently sees a large amount of use from various community groups including the local sewing and craft group who use the space weekly.

"Our hall is a real community hub, and with the addition of the new facilities we are hopeful it will continued to be used by various community groups," Ms Hollingworth said.
