BEACH HOUSE HOTEL IN HERVEY BAY TO BE TORN DOWN FOR NEW COMPLEX

February 21st, 2013

BEACH HOUSE HOTEL TO BE REPLACED WITH NEW STRUCTURE

WARREN Persal, a Maryborough-born man who “worked his guts out” all his life and became a multi-millionaire, will tear down Hervey Bay’s historic Beach House Hotel in May and rebuild it.

The investment is $6 million on top of the $4 million he spent to acquire the property from football legend Norm Provan and a consortium last year.

Mr Persal, who owns the historic Carriers Arms in Alice St, Maryborough, has already spent $200,000 on giving the bar a fresh coat of paint, totally refurbishing the beer garden and introducing smart new furniture throughout.

“Frankly, this hotel was holding Scarness back,” Mr Persal, 70, said yesterday.

“We couldn’t leave it like it is, the layout is all wrong.

“We took the lounge furniture straight to the dump.

“But in May we’ll pull down the whole place and build a stunning 2500sq m pub to be open by Christmas.”

He said there would be no accommodation in the new two-storey complex.

“Hervey Bay has enough right now. We’re building a new drive-through bottle shop, a function centre upstairs for 400, a car park, bistro and cafe, gaming room and outdoor decks.”

Manager Paul Robins said the hotel might open a ‘donga’ to maintain bar service to regular patrons.

Mr Persal has hired KP Architects, which recently won an award for best hotel in Australia.

“We’ll straighten this one out and it will be great,” he said.

GET YOUR ADVERTS IN FOR THE RURAL NEWS RE- THE TORBANLEA PICNIC RACES

August 26th, 2010

SEE YOU AT THE TORBANLEA PICNIC RACES @ QUEENSLAND

HI,

It’s that time again! Thought I should give you as much notice as possible…

Planning for the annual Torbanlea Picnic Races on Saturday October 16 is well underway. This year, like 2009, Wide Bay Rural Weekly is a major media partner, and will feature the event over a 3 week series, maximizing promotion, especially to encourage bus bookings, camp site bookings, and all those people who prepare for Fashion of the Field.

The biggest advantage of featuring the event in Wide Bay Rural Weekly, apart from the hugely discounted rates on offer, is the insertion of Wide Bay Rural Weekly into Bundaberg’s NewsMail, Fraser Coast Chronicle and Gympie Times, which provides virtually triple the coverage.

This year the event is likely to be bigger than ever, bus bookings already, campsites and stalls booked already, folk from as far as New Zealand enquiring, and now even Corporate Marquee bookings available for groups 10, 20, 40 and more.

We invite you to consider participation, promote your message and support Torbanlea’s biggest fundraiser of the year. I look forward to opportunity to discuss this with you, and will follow up with a phone call in the next few days.

Should you have any query please feel free to contact me at your earliest opportunity.

  1. Bus bookings with Wide Bay Transit and G & D Ross Bus Charters
  2. Campsite bookings
  3. Entries for Fashion of the Field
  4. Team entries for the Team Tug of War event
  5. Riders and horses nominating for events
  6. The newest addition…..corporate tables and marquee bookings…groups of 10, 20 , 40, 50 or more can prebook to have a set place ready for their group, in the shade of a marquee, with table and chairs and includes the gate entry….for just $25 per head…and it’s all set up and cleaned up for you….

For event details folk can email torbanleapicnicraces@live.com.au and for participation in the promotion, and program, supporting this major fundraiser email edith.rutherford@apnnewspapers.com.au

We look forward to your bookings and seeing everyone on the day…

Cheers for now,

Edith Rutherford

June 24th, 2010

Dear Members and Guests,

Friday, 30th July

Pink & Pampered




Save the date

for our next ‘Women in Business’ Luncheon.

The theme for the afternoon will be awareness, fun & friendship.

Our aim is to raise as many funds as we can to go towards much needed support for local breast cancer patients.

Our guest speaker for the afternoon will be Angela Wotherspoon – our local Breast Care Nurse. But it’s not to be all serious, the ‘pink bubbles’ will be available and we need some pampering to celebrate all the good stuff that comes with being female; with support from local businesses to highlight the upcoming trends in hair, make-up and fashion.

As with most fundraising events we need your help, so if there are any businesses out there who wish to assist by way of sponsorship or in kind – we need raffle prizes, lucky door gifts etc.  We will have a special ‘auction’ item in the form of a certain type of swimwear that is signed by Tony Abbott – you could be the lucky owner of the potential PM’s signed swimwear.

Date: Friday 30th July 2010

Time: 11:45am for noon

Cost: $50 per head for members and $60 non-members OR $450 per table of 10


Venue: Fraser Room – Hervey Bay Boat Club

And this event is not just for the Women, our male supporters are encouraged to come as well, so if you know of someone who would like to attend, please forward this email.


Official invitations will be forwarded in the next few weeks advising of more detail but at this point just mark your diaries off for the afternoon and contact Debbie Potts with your sponsorship and/or gift items on 4128 2066 or debbie@clm.net.au
