New space to open up for ex­cit­ing ven­ture

Myrtleford Times - - Letters To The Editor -

MYRTLE­FORD’S 29 Clyde Street could soon be home to the town’s new­est busi­ness with owner Cameron Rayner look­ing to lease the build­ing to some­one with big plans.

Mr Rayner, who grew up in Bright and now lives in Tam­worth, hopes the build­ing which was most re­cently Reign of Pearls, will again be­come a pop­u­lar venue in Myrtle­ford.

“It is a build­ing with a lot of char­ac­ter,” he said.

“Peo­ple have got good mem­o­ries of it and hope­fully the next gen­er­a­tion will too with what­ever is in here in the fu­ture.”

Mr Rayner has al­ready met with mul­ti­ple po­ten­tial leasers with changes to the area de­pen­dent on the busi­ness that steps in.

“There’s quite a bit of in­ter­est, with lots of dif­fer­ent peo­ple,” he said.

“It’s more than likely it will be a café or res­tau­rant of some sort with seat­ing mak­ing the most of the nice area out the front there.

“I have got prob­a­bly two or three months’ worth of ren­o­va­tions to do be­fore­hand so it’s not just go­ing to hap­pen overnight.

“I will work with the peo­ple (that lease) and hope­fully get it up and run­ning.” IN­TER­EST: Cam Rayner is ex­cited by the po­ten­tial of a new busi­ness mov­ing into his Clyde Street pur­chase.

Mr Rayner said he also hopes to be able to add hol­i­day rentals at the back of the prop­erty to make the most of the towns grow­ing tourism.

“Ev­ery­one was say­ing Myrtle­ford is re­ally go­ing ahead so I’ve just jumped in and I’m look­ing for­ward to be­ing a part of the com­mu­nity again,” he said.

“It was a bit of a spur of the mo­ment kind of thing and I have gone with gut feel­ing af­ter think­ing the time was right.”

Ray White sales con­sul­tant Al­lan McGuffie, who listed the prop­erty, said he felt the build­ing held one of the best spots in town.

“It looks over the pi­azza and some of the new streetscape there, you’ve got high­way ex­po­sure, it’s pretty damn good,” he said.

“The right per­son has come along who is pre­pared to do it back up to its old style and re­tain its char­ac­ter so it’s go­ing to be in­ter­est­ing to see how it goes.

“There are no plans set yet for it as a com­mer­cial space so it’s open to all com­ers re­ally.”
