THE much-loved Moonan Flat Soldiers Memorial Hall will be restored following an investment by the NSW Government.

In positive news for the local residents, the Moonan Flat Soldiers Memorial Hall Committee will receive $10,000 in funding for restoration works so the hall can continue to be part of the community for many years.

Upper Hunter MP Michael Johnsen welcomed the announcement.

"The hall has been a local hub for dances, Anzac commemorations, meetings and community events since 1926," he said.

"Everyone who lives in the area would have a fond memory of visiting the memorial.

"So, this funding means future generations of school children, community groups and families can share in the same experience."

The Soldiers Memorial Hall in Moonan Flat is one of 20 projects across the state to receive funding from the NSW Government to repair, protect and preserve community war memorials.

"These war memorials have significant heritage value as places that embody our respect for those who have served Australia," Mr Johnsen added.

"The grants awarded range from $1000 to $10,000 and are helping to cover costs such as professional condition assessments of war memorials and the repair of damaged monuments."
