Shire gar­dens hit the street

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

It’s all go.

We are still ex­tremely busy at the i-SITE; even though we are be­hind the hoard­ings, vis­i­tors are find­ing their way into our cen­tre.

Our Gate­house is pro­gress­ing quickly – ev­ery day there are more trades­men on site.

At the mo­ment, the scaf­fold­ing guys are here, putting up the scaf­fold­ing so they can start the cre­ation of the mag­nif­i­cent Gate­house chim­ney.

Dar­ren Roa and his team of builders and trades­men have come to us from work­ing out at the movie set.

While work­ing there, they have been ex­tremely well looked af­ter by the Shires Rest man­ager, Sue Todd.

The Pub­lic Re­la­tions As­so­ci­a­tion is try­ing to keep up the stan­dard, so Mike Buck­man from Robert Har­ris Cafe is kindly sup­ply­ing morn­ing tea for the guys.

Noble & Lee are the first busi­ness to get their Shire gar­den out on the street.

They have cre­ated a fan­tas­tic lit­tle gar­den in a rus­tic wheel­bar­row, adding a great touch with their Noble & Lee brand­ing.

I am told by many of the busi­nesses that their gar­dens and shop win­dow de­signs are about to be re­vealed.

Thanks to PRA Com­mit­tee mem­ber Di Rom­ley, who has re­moved the old Hob­bit hole painted de­signs from the i-SITE win­dows. She even cleaned our win­dows as she went. Thanks Di you can come again!
