Dora Phillips Hall is 50

The Dora Phillips hall in Eastwood will celebrate its 50th anniversary next Saturday, September 15.

From those early days which provided opportunities for girls to meet together to develop life skills, these last 50 years have witnessed a continuous provision of quality activities for girls aged 5 to adulthood, many of the girls continuing on to become young leaders.

Units of Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rangers and St. John Ambulance Nursing cadets meet on a weekly basis to carry out a wide range of activities while making friends and gaining valuable life skills.

The hall is also used on a regular basis by The Women’s Institute, a local Art group and Keep fit classes.
