An extensive makeover for the historic Illowa Hall is underway.
The tile roof on the building, which was constructed over 100 years ago, is being replaced by colourbond.
This is stage one of renovations which will include a new ceiling, interior painting and a new floor.
Illowa Hall president Graeme Morris said the new roof would be a great asset.
"I'm pretty sure they were the original tiles on the roof so they had well and truly done their job," Mr Morris said.
"They had started to crack and cause a bit of leakage so they needed to be replaced.
"The committee decided the colourbond was the best way to go, it looks good and does the job."
The cost of the new roof was being covered by Moyne Shire Council, which owns the building.
Mr Morris said the hall committee and council had a strong working relationship.
"Council owns the building and we are caretakers so it's good to have a strong partnership," Mr Morris said.
"Our committee and council are pretty keen to look after the hall because we know it's a great community hub. It is one of the best halls in the district and we want to keep it that way and even improve it more."
One of those improvements will be the installation of acoustic materials in the sealing to upgrade the sound in the hall.
Mr Morris said improving the acoustics in the hall would further increase what already is strong usage.
"A lot of people are using the hall for a lot of different things," Mr Morris said.
"We have had weddings, milestone birthday parties and a lot of other community events.
"We are lucky to have the hall here and in such good shape and it's great people are making use of it.
The hall was part of Illowa's education precinct, which included the catholic St Columba's school and the Illowa State School.
The catholic school was built in 1918, while the state school was erected 60 years prior.
Both schools closed in 1968 due to unsustainable enrollments.
