  • Morisset Memorial Hall - The Towns Meeting Place

    by Marion B, over 3 years ago

    My family has a long connection with MMH. My great grandfather was H.B. Mullard a founding Trustee. My grandparents Herb and Marion Mullard were also involved with the rebuilding after the fire in 1953 as was my father Hope Mullard and many other relatives.

    I am a member of the Southlakes U3a group and am involved with one of their many classes being held at this hall. It has such a wonderful history attached to it. It would be a travesty to see it's removal.

  • Help for children with learning difficulties

    by valbadham, over 3 years ago
    My connection with the hall is for the last three and a half years I and 8 other retired volunteers (mostly trained primary teachers) taught local children struggling with reading, spelling and numeracy. This program was available two afternoons a week during school term. Access to this program has meant that parents unable to pay fees for tutoring have been able to get their children much needed individual help. The Lower Hall has been a marvellous room for our purpose. This means that the Hall is still very much a Literary Institute as well as a Memorial Hall.
