History under your feet

Next time you walk past the Polaris building on your way to Barker or College Crescent or Waitara or elsewhere glance down and check out this plaque. 

Where the Polaris block of apartments is now was once the location of the Masonic hall used for a variety of local community events.

The nearest community event venue is now ... er ... mmm ... oh there's meeting room in the library and the war memorial hall next to the RSL and ... and ... lets hope some of these promised west side developments really do include space for community events and services at a low and reasonable cost?
