New name sought for Tanunda CWA Hall

The Barossa Council is asking for your feedback to help rename the Tanunda CWA Hall.

The ownership of the Hall was recently transferred to Council at the request of the South Australian Country Women’s Association Incorporated and local Tanunda Branch, and Council would like to rename the facility to reflect the change in ownership and emphasise the community focus of the hall.

Mayor Bob Sloane, said the hall has, and will remain an integral part of the Tanunda Town Square, and acknowledged the great contribution of the CWA and its strong and continuing working relationship with Council.   The hall’s original opening plaque acknowledging the CWA contribution will continue to occupy pride of place outside of the hall.

“We believe renaming the hall to mark the transition may provide the community with a greater sense of ownership and let people know it’s here for community use,” he said.

“Essentially this is a community facility that is available for anyone to hire. Council manages this facility in the same way as other assets. We would like to see a wider range of groups and organisations use this space for meetings, events and functions.”

Members of the community are encouraged to have their say and vote for one of the suggested preferred names. You can cast your vote online via Council’s Facebook page or by filling out a voting slip and placing it in a box at the Tanunda Library, Visitor Information Centre or Nuriootpa Council Office.

“We are asking the community to be involved in this process as we value their thoughts and opinions,” said Mayor Sloane.

Voting commences from September 14 and closes at 5pm on October 5, 2015.
