New Ablett Pavilion making an impression

Renovations currently underway at the Ablett Pavilion in Myrtleford are making a big impression on passers-by, even though they are not yet complete.

Alpine Shire Council CEO Ian Nicholls said while work is scheduled to be completed at the end of this month, the work done to date already looks impressive.

"It has changed the whole feel of the building to something that's much more welcoming and grand. Work on the new balcony and viewing deck is complete so people can now more fully understand the potential of the new space," Mr Nicholls said.

As well the ground floor toilets are completed and work on the access ramps is progressing well.

"This building will now have many more uses and will play a significant role in the life of the Myrtleford community," he said.

The $525,000 project was funded by the Victorian and Australian governments, Council and a $20,000 contribution from the community.

"This project is really a credit to the local community. They drove the idea by initially presenting it to Council and they continued to seek our support and support further afield."

The upgrade includes disability access, new disabled toilets on the ground floor and first floor, a new viewing deck and entry balcony.
