Stage curtains steal the show

INVERLOCH Community Hub is now an even better placed to host performing arts productions after new $14,529 theatrical stage curtains were installed recently.

The old curtains dated back to the 1950s and were riddled with holes.

Bass Coast Shire Council’s hub officer Trish Hogan said, “When we had weddings here, the decorators used to say ‘What are we going to do with those curtains?’

“The new curtains will be really good for when we have performances and they’re wool, fire retardant and of beautiful quality.”

The project was funded by council ($9000), Inverloch Rotary Club ($2500) and Inverloch and District Lions Club ($3029).

Lion Klaus Edel said, “There were old curtains here that were 30 years old and they weren’t sliding. This is a fantastic venue to have in the middle of town and so we needed to do something.

“Anything we raise goes back to the community and the hub is important to the community.”

Rotary was keen to support the project, given the hub’s community value.

Club president Rosa Turner said, “This area is now something that can be used by the community for productions, for weddings and for when Rotary has its markets here.”

The hub will be the major venue for a Lions conference from October 14 to 16.

The next Rotary craft market will be on the Saturday of the Melbourne Cup long
