Our hall is 124 years old and is the centre of community activities in the small central Victorian town of Glenlyon. For decades it was the shire office, before amalgamation moved the Hepburn Shire offices into Daylesford. Now the hall structure is in very poor condition and the locals are raising funds to undertake renovations, to ensure the building remains the centre of our known universe!
