Trades Hall Celebrates Restoration

Geelong Trades Hall Celebrated the completion of the major restoration works last week. Celebrations were in keeping with tradition i.e. having a party. A commemoration plaque was unveiled by comrade Brian Boyd, Secretary of Victorian Trades Hall Council. Old and young came from far and wide to celebrate the 80 year old building. Unions that contributed to the restoration fund had their named embossed on the wall and received commemorative tokens made from 80 year old red gum that used to be part of the old fire escape.

The major restorations consisted of asbestos removal, a new roof, rewiring, fire escape and painting. Tim Gooden, Geelong Trade Hall Secretary, said. "Now the building is protected for future members for another 80 years".
