In addition to the usual bustle of preparations for the Black Snake Creek Festival, there have been a number of changes in Marburg recently. Two of the most noticeable changes have been the new post office and the new toilet facilities in the park.
For many years, the post office has been in the same building as Scotland Yard Antiques and Statham’s Real Estate. Last week, it moved to the refurbished Blue Nurses building next door to the Marburg Hotel. The new postmistress is Jacquie Day. Drop in to see the new building and to have a chat with Jacquie and her sister, Karen who delivers the mail. Jacquie is expanding the range of products available and will be carrying a range of Australia Post gift items as well as items of local interest.
The new toilet facilities are a welcome replacement for what had become an eyesore in the park. Council has done a great job replacing the old block with a building sympathetic to the surrounding historical buildings.
