  • The RAHS received a grant as part of the Federal stimulus package which will allow us to upgrade our facilities by installing air-conditioning and new technology inour Auditorium. This means that there will be major building works at History House during the first half of 2010. This may affect some of our activities which will be held in our Reception Rooms during this period and we apologise for any inconvenience caused in advance. We know the improvements to our Auditorium will be wonderful and well worth the inconvenience.
