Savernake School of Arts Hall, NSW, Bpangerang Country
Savernake School of Arts Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Bpangerang People.
Two churches, an oval, Post Office and hall,
A school, some houses and that’s just about all.
It may sound tiny, it has no castles,
But good things come in small parcels. (Cecile Dowling 1985).
The hall approaching its centenary, sits in the heart of Savernake, on the Riverina Highway, it replaced an original hall in 1926. Its historic three art deco turrets adorn the roof.
This hall has been the scene for many community functions over those years – balls celebrating community milestones, school concerts, fundraising luncheons for various community causes, as well as the venue for many birthday parties, weddings and various special events.
Theatre evenings have been a highlight for our community – June Bronhill, Jackie Weaver, Anne Phelan, and Fanny Lumsden have graced this stage.
Over a number of years the committee have been working hard to upgrade and maintain this beautiful hall. New amenity block, replacing the good old drop dunnies, fully decked out kitchen with dish washer and air-conditioning. The hall is now registered with the RFS as a place of refuge in the event of any disaster – including fire – with the fire shed situated on the same block as the hall.
