In its place of pride on the Gore Highway halfway between Pittsworth and Millmerran, you can find the quaint little timber Pampas hall.
The hall was officially opened in May 1955. After months of planning much was still to be done – the ordering of red, white and blue crepe paper for decorating, the food order – which included 50 dozen sausage rolls, 30 dozen savoury Shells, 12 double loaves of bread, 6 lbs pressed ham, 6 lbs cooked corned beef, 6 lbs butter, 8 lbs tomatoes as well as eggs and lettuce! 500 tickets were printed. Even back then the committee decided to take out insurance against the possibility of rain. The cost of the insurance was £150. A lot of money for that time. The insurance was not needed and the opening went went ahead as planned. 64 years from the eventful day, this small hall is preparing for the wonderful feeling of being filled to capacity once again.
Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start
