Latest Beechworth Blog Post Summaries

Store plumbs pop-up move

RITCHIES Stores’ chief executive Fred Harrison has acknowledged that the inspiration for the company’s interim Beechworth supermarket location – “99.9 per cent certain” late yesterday – came from a young employee, Sam Westra.

The head of the 70-store independently-owned chain told about 220 people who packed Beechworth’s town hall that Sam had suggested to his parents – Beechworth Plumbing Plus owners Mick and Jo Westra – that the Harper Avenue site from which their business operates would be perfect for a stand-in supermarket.


Rating Strategy review – have your say

Indigo Shire Council is holding two consultation sessions to help residents provide feedback on a review of its current Rating Strategy.

Mayor Cr James Trenery said the rating strategy was the mechanism that determined how rates are levied in the Shire.


Memorial Hall an option for interim supermarket

Ritchies and Indigo Shire Council have today discussed the Beechworth Memorial Hall as a possible interim supermarket site while a new supermarket is ideally built within a year.

A fire destroyed the town’s only supermarket 10 days ago.

Ritchies CEO Fred Harrison and Indigo Shire Mayor Cr James Trenery said the prime focus in finalising any site for a viable interim supermarket was to maintain employment for the 50 supermarket staff, provide a one-stop-shopping facility, especially for families, and keep economic activity generated by the supermarket in the town.


Beechworth Kelly Country Pick

The Kelly Country Pick is a winter Bluegrass and Old Time Country Music Convention based in the historic town of Beechworth. It began in 1999 as an annual get together between a few pickers and families from Victoria and NSW for a relaxed music weekend. It now attracts some 300-500 musicians and patrons and is growing steadily.
