Roadworks are killing the pub
FEELING defeated and too upset to face a photo, owners of the Apple Tree Creek Hotel, Mick and Kelly Hayden sit on the veranda waving to locals as they drive by wondering when the roadworks will be completed.
Mr Hayden said the road works is killing his business and he wants the locals to know he is still open.
“It’s a struggle for locals to access the pub with the upgrades,” he said.
Mr Hayden supports the road upgrades and was fully aware the work was going to be carried out.
For the past five weeks the Haydens’ business has suffered greatly as customers struggle to navigate a path to the pub.
With thoughts of selling the pub if business doesn’t improve, Mr Hayden is concerned for his family as the business has three generations currently working together to run the popular venue.
Mr Hayden would like to see better signs and access to his pub with regulars turned off by the works.
NO ENTRY: Regulars Adam Tonkin and Peter Cheney got to the pub.
