About the Hall
Originally the Avon Sunday School hall was built in 1923. Due to religious beliefs some social events were disallowed, so the community built another hall along- side, opening in 1960. At the time regular dances were held. In time a small portable building was annexed for the use of children, i.e. a play group and Friday night’s kids club. Due to the declining farming population, the closing of the school, and shop, use has decrease dramatically and the annex has now been established as Book Nook. The main hall is used for various social events such as Adult Learners Day in September and until recently a wonderful Christmas festival which ran for about 3 weeks bringing in buses of folk from various city locations to view the displays and enjoy a luncheon put on by the aging volunteers. In recent times the Hall has hosted weddings, parties, historic events, reunions. The Sunday School hall has been set up as a craft hall and the group meet every Tuesday focusing on but not always the local products of the area mainly wool and grain. Equipment such as spinning wheels, carder, looms are set up for the enthusiastic to try their hand.
