The Branxton Community Hall started out as a YMCA hall at Greta Army Camp during WW2. From 1949 to 1960's the hall was used by the migrants at Greta Migrant Camp and was then sold to the Branxton School of Arts for the community to use.

The much-needed kitchen upgrade involved creating a bigger space with two work areas (food preparation and wash up), the addition of a large stainless steel bench and new electrical appliances.

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said the Branxton Community Hall Section 355 Committee has worked hard for many years to achieve this result for the community.

"This upgrade has enhanced this wonderful community facility by providing users with an up to date and modern kitchen, which will also increase the hire potential of the hall."

The hall is currently booked seven days a week for things like yoga, Hunta Karate, Barre Vida dance class, GymBaroo, youth groups, dance time, Japanese martial arts, church services and fundraising events. The new kitchen will allow for larger bookings and events to take place like weddings, baby showers and cooking classes.
