Improved Facilities At Mapua Hall

Congratulations to the hardworking Mapua Hall Committee who have completed the new extensions to the Mapua Public Hall. With these improved facilities the hall has now a kitchen registered for catering. A community effort has culminated with the opening of the extensions, which has as a main feature a 30ft x 30ft supper room. The extensions are worth about $10,000 and have been paid for.
