New Zealand has a lot of halls used for all sorts of activities, from dance to weddings, pottery classes, political meetings etc. Most of these halls have been built around the wars, for the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services’ Association, retired workers etc. 'Old Folks'.
While New Zealand has built a lot of places for the older generations, it is rare to find places for 'young folks'. Without these halls young people would not be able to practice their Art, their activities.
