“One Day in Collie” states that, “The first ‘civic’ meeting was an impromptu affair in 1897. Mr Tom Carrig, sitting outside his tent watching the two carpenters who were constructing his hotel ‘The Colliefields’, no doubt in pensive mood, called to order a meeting of the ‘First Progress Association’. Tom outlined his progressive ideas – one of the carpenters moved a proposition accordingly, unanimously.” It goes on later to say that “The first civic institution initiated and operated as a local body was the Coalfield Progress Committee. It began on a more official premise than Tom Carrig’s earlier motivations, but was noticeably held at the same venue, the Colliefields Hotel. A public meeting held there in 1898 determined that a body of twelve persons should be elected to make up the Committee, with eighteen nominations immediately submitted.”
The hotel was expanded as seen in this picture of the hotel while under the management of Mr F.W. Crowe.
The new building was magnificent as you can see from this picture, which is of the first hunt meeting outside the Colliefields Hotel.
We have been told that some of the ballustrading was only sold about two years prior to our renovations commencing. Do you know where it is? We’d love to be able to get even a small piece of it or a cast of it as we are hoping to reinstate these balconies in future stages of our renovations.
The article goes on to say that “In the meantime, the next shops, occupied by E. Watts, newsagent, and the Ezywalkin Boot Company, were pulled down to prevent the fire spreading further.” This picture shows the side of the Colliefields Hotel, with all the buildings between it and the Crown totally destroyed.
