Locals can rejoice after The Mt Molloy National Hotel announced it is planning on reopening its doors to the community, bringing the community together and offering more jobs to locals.

The pub is planning on reopening after the easing of stage 2 restrictions taking place on Friday, June 12.

After closing on March 23 the Mt Molloy Hotel has been completely inundated with takeaway orders from their kitchen and alcohol orders from their regular patrons.

In preparation for their reopening, the pub is looking to hire more staff including bar staff, kitchen hands, a casual cook and owner Shane Mcelligott is looking to spread his own workload by hiring a bus driver.

After the pub had to shut its doors, some staff members found permanent work elsewhere and cannot return.

Mr Mcelligott said he is excited for the pub to reopen on Saturday June 13 and is looking forward to seeing his regulars walk through the doors again.

“It feels great to have everyone showing their support while the doors were closed, it shows that we are doing a good job,” he said.

“It’s a great meeting place for people around the area to come have a feed and some beers with their mates.

“It’s a great family environment and I really push that, we treat people how we want to be treated.”

For more information on the positions and how to apply call the Mt Molloy National Hotel on 40941133.
