Dungog Menshed members' talented hands have done it again.

The team have come to the aid of the Bandon Grove School of Arts Hall committee in their endeavour to spruce up the iconic hall.

The Dungog Menshed refurbished some old pews for the hall which, according to Grafton Shelton, most likely came from the Wangat village church.

"The sensitive restoration undertaken by the menshed workers has breathed new life into the pews whilst still telling their story," said Bruce Read.

This is stage one of a bigger project with the supper room stools next and a replacement of some dangerous steps.

"The magnificent newly lined and insulated roof received a boost with the addition of two large, quiet and efficient fans that were kindly donated by Susan Carrol," said Mr Read.

"They should make a great addition to the hall events."

He encouraged the community to come and see the new work at the "upcoming, not to be missed" Irish Night Dinner Dance.
