Before & After
Stanton St Quintin Hall was built in 1938 and by the end of the first decade of the 21st century was ready for a substantial overhaul and more than a little TLC. It's fair to say it was looking very sad and unloved.
The challenge began in 2013 with some funding and a team of volunteers but little in the way of truly understanding the magnitude of the task. What was hidden under the top layers was anyone's guess, and discoveries, as pieces were peeled away, were not often pleasant ones. Thanks to incredible efforts of the SSQ Hall Committee (and this really wouldn't have happened without their expertise, grit and determination!) the restoration project has achieved a remarkable feat - a modern hall that is a pleasant place to be in.

A wonderful example of what can be achieved, with time and effort, more than just a little energy, donations and bucket loads of goodwill.
