Church revamps hall

RENOVATION works on the old Baker Hall in Davuilevu that cost $240,000 is expected to be completed in August this year.

The Baker Hall, which will be 104 years old this year, is normally used as a church and community hall by students at the Davuilevu Theological College, Lelean Memorial School and the Methodist Lay Training Centre.

Methodist Church in Fiji general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said the church hoped to finish all the renovation work so it could be used again by the students.

"At the moment, the construction workers are working on the Baker Hall floor.

"Afterwards, they will replace all the old windows and doors," Mr Nawadra said.

"Nothing will be done to the main structure since it's a historical building and the remains of the late Reverend Thomas Baker will remain where it is."
