Spring Ridge Hall is set to get a $70,000 makeover.
Halls like these are for community celebrations, mourning, fitness, and a building that can witness more history than most other places in small towns.
So when Spring Ridge resident Pippi Beer, who led the community campaign for local fitness classes, found out about the revamp, it was almost overwhelming.
"The project at the local hall means a lot to the community," she said.
"Playgroup, pre-school, yoga classes, school presentation days, community fundraisers, meetings and entertainment are all staged at the hall, so it really is a hub that brings the local community closer together."
The project will see the floors and piers replaced, with local contractors Graham and Phillip Batho to start work shortly.
Undertaken by Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC), the funding was received through a successful application to the NSW Government's Drought Stimulus Package.
LPSC Mayor Andrew Hope said main objective of this package is to deliver economic stimulus.
Fast-tracking local infrastructure projects like this "will provide lasting benefits to the community."
"Community halls, like the one at Spring Ridge, are part of the glue that binds rural communities together," Cr Hope said.
"Our rural villages are an important part of the Shire's history and character and also have an exciting role to play in the future so a community hub such as the hall is important."
"This is great news for Spring Ridge because communities in more isolated areas are reliant on their local infrastructure for their wellbeing."
Council will soon be announcing projects to be undertaken at Premer and Warrah Creek.
"A big thanks to Member for Upper Hunter, Michael Johnsen, for supporting these projects," Cr Hope said.
