The former home of the Newcomb Senior Citizens Club is now available for hire as a community hall and meeting venue.
About Newcomb Hall...
In 1982-1983, the Shire of Bellarine received a government grant of $200,000 for a building for the Newcomb Senior Citizens Club. The Club formed in 1975 and had been using the nearby Saint Barnabas church hall as well as the scout hall as they had no home of their own. The site on the corner of Wilsons Road and Dorward Avenue was purchased for $36,500 where the old Presbyterian church once stood.
On 8 April 1983 the Newcomb Seniors Citizens Club at 82 Wilsons Road was officially opened.
In 2017-2018 the Newcomb Senior Citizens Club returned their lease to the City of Greater Geelong as the club was winding down and could no longer manage the venue. From then, Council has managed the building as a community hall, allowing the local community to continue to access and benefit from the use of the venue.
In 2020 the venue received a major renovation to the amenities including new male, female and accessible toilet and cleaner's room.
It has proven very popular for hall hire ever since, due to its excellent layout and central location not too far from the Geelong.
