A STANTHORPE social scene favourite is set to have its revamp continued.

The council approved an application from the Stanthorpe RSL at the general meeting yesterday.

Manager Jean Hallas said the approval was welcome news.

"We have already done up the servery side of the bistro and the other minor alterations will see a flow through to the rest of the club," she said.

"The internal layout will also be moved around a little.

"It will also probably trigger an extra car park which will help free up parking along Marsh St.

"We hope to keep up to date and make it a place people continue to come and dine and enjoy themselves."

Ms Hallas said to do everything they wanted would be a gradual process over the next four years and no set cost was known as quotes would be obtained on a section by section basis.

Councillor Denise Ingram said it was a positive move for the popular business.

"It is great for the community to have a place where they can go to socialise, particularly for the veterans and that is what we want to continue," she said.
