Road­works are killing the pub

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
