Three generations of plumbers help build Beach House Hotel

THREE generations of tradies are working on one of Hervey Bay's biggest developments.

On the worksite of the new $6 million two storey Beachhouse Hotel is the Kimber family.

John Kimber, 65, son Richard, 37, and grandson Lachlan, 15, are all working on the development.

Lachlan is helping the family run business while he is on holidays.

Mr Kimber has lived on the Fraser Coast all his life and has operated a plumbing business for 34 years

"We're very proud to be working on a local project for a local organisation."
