RSL members can finally set feet on solid ground
"THERE'S no place like home," a phrase the Boyne Tannum Returned Service League sub-branch never got to say, until recently.
After a transfer of the trusteeship of the Tannum hall for the Department of Natural Resources and Mines from the Boyne Tannum Arts Business and Community Association to the Boyne Tannum RSL sub-branch, meant members of the RSL sub-branch could finally plant their feet in one spot.
Members said they were grateful to the Boyne Tannum Bowls Club for allowing them to use the hall for their RSL meetings.
"We are extremely grateful," sub branch secretary Mike Robbins said.
"The bowls club has showed us great support in allowing us to hold our meeting there in the past years."
The hall will remain for hire to the general public, and current users will not be affected by the trusteeship.
However future plans for the hall include establishing an office as well as a drop-in centre.
"We are aware the hall needs some attention which has already commenced, and are awaiting word from RSL QLD as to their possible input into the hall," Mr Robbins said.
Sub-branch members will use the hall initially on Friday afternoons.
