It was a lovely morning this morning, and I had been for my early morning walk. I had prepared a delicious breakfast of bruschetta with tomato, basil and feta on homemade bread. I took my breakfast outside and just enjoyed the surroundings and beautiful weather.
Yes, the demolition work is underway on the fire-damaged premises in Metung. You can see the Lockwood sign in the background and that is where the real estate business has relocated. The premises were the former Information Centre and a small retail outlet. That means at least one of the businesses affected is now up and operating.
The roof has been removed from the Nautica part of the complex and you can see the extent of the damage.The Bakery still has its roof but I am not sure if that is coming down as well. The Bakery is relocating to vacant premises across the road. The shop called Tallowwood used to be in the premises. It is the white building with the drawn blinds.
I was down in the village later in the day so I could post a parcel and I noticed that they had finished working.
The latest project in Metung is the extension of the boardwalk into Chinamans Creek. The work started in August just before we left for our holiday overseas and it is now evident that some work has been done. I don’t know if it is going to be finished by mid December as is the anticipated finish date on the Council notices.
Apparently there was a delay as permission was required for the removal of some native vegetation.
