A community gem for nearly a century

The Balcairn Public Hall began life in 1926 after several years of community fundraising, to create a memorial site for those lost in WW1. It quickly became a beacon for social activity.

Over many ensuing years, the hall was used for community dances, fancy dress balls, baby and kitchen showers, local indoor sports such as table tennis and indoor bowls and so on. 

By the turn of the century, however, the hall was in need of significant repairs. Something had to change and a new committee of locals was established in 2010. The ownership of the hall was transferred to an incorporated charitable society. Significant fundraising efforts resulted in restoration works including a new roof, re-cladding and kitchen renovation.

Today, the hall's reputation as a great community venue continues to grow thanks to the hard working committee, elected annually from the local community.
