SOME BACKGROUND...

Until 1996, the Meagher's Grant Community Hall was owned and managed by the Meaghers Grant Recreation & Volunteer Fire Department. When the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) came into existence, all Fire Departments and their assets within the boudaries of HRM were transferred to Halifax Fire Department. However as it often happens when something of that magnitude takes place, some steps were missed and the transfer of the ownership of the Meaghers Grant Community Hall was not done.

Following the recent oil spill and the septic tank disasters at the Community Hall, it came to light that the Meagher's Grant Community Hall still belongs to the Meagher's Grant Volunteer Fire Department which is a society in name only and completely separate from the Meagher's Grant Fire Station which is under the management of Halifax Fire Department.

Following this and a General Community meeting on 25th February 2015, a new committee was elected and reactivate the Meagher's Grant Volunteer Fire Department society. The committee will continue to own and operate the Community Hall and provide the members of the community with a viable organization which has their best interest in mind.
