A STAPLE piece of infrastructure in the Bell community is approaching a significant milestone, with celebrations planned for Saturday.

The Bell Memorial Public Hall will turn 100 on June 3, but a party is being held at the hall at 9am on Saturday with fun and entertainment planned to truly celebrate the anniversary.

Committee member for the Bell Memorial Public Hall Ruth Storey said the event was aimed at providing fun for all involved, while celebrating the history and nostalgia of the building.

"It will be lovely, our hall ambassadors will be welcoming friends old and new and there will be plenty of memorabilia on display throughout the day,” Mrs Storey said.

The day will have a finger food luncheon along with a one-act play, The Curious Case of Mr Blackie, performed by the Bell Theatre Group.

There will be guest speakers throughout the day, discussing the history of the hall and its ongoing importance.

The hall has been a prevalent social spot for the Bell community, especially in its early days and this will be highlighted during the event.

"The hall was a social hub and was the heart of the community in the early days, hosting everything from balls to church functions,” Mrs Storey said.

Admission for the event is $15 for adults, school students $6 and free for children six and under.
