MOONEE Beach a community without a hall is calling on foreshore authorities to look at rebuilding what has been lost.
The Moonee Beach Community Hall was demolised for safety reason after the building's weathered roof collapsed on February 26.
Almost four months since the decision was made to raze the building and local residents are hoping an insurance claim will see a new community structure built in its place.
"The question that's now being asked by most of the Moonee Beach residents is 'Why has no work been started to rebuild the hall as it was insured?'," local resident Mark Yeomans said.
"Firstly one must consider the history of the hall.
"It was paid for by the community of Moonee Beach via various fundraising activities and was used on an almost daily basis by varying groups, which included marial art classes for the local kids, Mooneemites play group and Zumba and Yoga classes.
"It was also a regular venue for birthdays and a popular wedding venue and was also used as an election poll station," he said.
The Advocate is making enquiries with relevant authorities to determine the outcome of the insurance claim and whether a new hall will be built for the community.
