Tumby Bay District Soldiers` Memorial HallPrint Page Print this page

Tumby Bay District Soldiers` Memorial Hall was erected in memory of those who served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The foundation stone was laid on Coronation Day 2nd June 1953. The original memorial hall was opened in 1929.

Tenders will be called soon for the erection of a new Soldiers' Memorial Hall at Tumby Bay, foundations for which have already been laid. The foundation stone was laid on Coronation Day. The architect (Mr. Selby A. Chinnery) said yesterday that drawings and specifica tions should be completed within two months. Tenders for the balance of the work would then be called. Seating accommodation for 1,019, including 309 in the gallery was planned. Construction would be of brick and local limestone. The new hall which would adjoin the District Council offices would be connected by a covered way with the exist ing hall which would be used as a supper room.
