The Scout Hall is located on Beach Road and was formerly known as the Drill Hall. The facility was a bequest donated to the community by the Flower Family Estate and has reserve status, which means it is protected under the Reserves Act 1977 as a public hall facility.
A fire unfortunately destroyed all of Council’s records in 1945 but it is believed the building was constructed in 1897 as the drill hall for soldiers going off to the Boer War and later WWI. It is a much loved facility by the community and is listed as a strategic asset under Council’s Significance Policy.
The Scout Hall was substantially refurbished in 2021 with generous support from Lotteries New Zealand $136,000 and the Provincial Development Unit $470,000.
