Oropi Memorial Hall run by the Oropi Settlers' Association is situated 13km up Oropi Road and only 300 meters from Oropi School. It offers the local and surrounding areas both rural Ohauiti & Pyes Pa a well managed meeting and function space at the heart of the village & community.
It’s been a long time coming, but Oropi Hall’s $2million-dollar makeover has finally begun. The first two redevelopment stages have commenced. This includes shifting and enlarging the stage, a new meeting room, new toilets, additions to the playgroup space and an indoor/outdoor flow. Stage three includes two indoor squash courts and a new multipurpose fitness room and stage four additional car parking facilities.
Local volunteers from the district have been stripping the interior of the hall and they did a huge job, a big thank you to all those who took part. The redeveloped hall will become a Community Centre and there will be something there for people of all ages.
The building will take 7 -8 months to complete.
