Beach House opening may be pushed back

EAGER patrons of the Beach House Hotel in Scarness will have to wait a little longer with work on the $6 million redevelopment project yet to be completed.

Beach House general manager Gary Gilbert said the anticipated opening at the end of June may be delayed.

"We thought we would get it done by the end of June and if it's a couple of weeks past that day, so be it, we never gave an exact date anyway," Mr Gilbert said.

An official opening party is planned for the end of August.

"We're talking to council to book the park opposite and have events, even for kids with face painting and such," Mr Gilbert said.
