Greymouth CBD upgrade progressing, but lots more work to do

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Greymouth has suffered as the mining industry declines, but life is slowly being breathed back into the West Coast town's centre.

Greymouth has suffered as the mining industry declines, but life is slowly being breathed back into the West Coast town's centre.

Once home to 47 hotels, today the West Coast town has only six. Those entering the town are greeted by the large, derelict Revingtons Hotel with its crumbling facade on one side and a McDonald's restaurant on the other.

The town's centre contains multiple derelict buildings, many of which will not meet earthquake standards, according to its mayor. And some feel Greymouth is not tapping into the potential tourism market, with visitors driving through by the millions to stay in Hokitika or the glacier country further south.

But locals say it feels like the place is finally beginning to move forward, with some businesses thriving and new ones opening up.

Not only is this a salve for loneliness, it sparks interaction, communication and mobility in residents, says Tracy Fairhall, activities coordinator for Raeburn Lifecare in Cambridge.

For Rebecca, it is simply a joy to spread joy. She remembers the first rest home visit she arranged. “At one point I looked over at a lovely resident who was 100 and he was kind of shaking and I was worried. I got closer and saw that he was shaking with laughter because my boys were having a paper plane competition, throwing paper planes from one end of the lounge to the other. It was beautiful.”

Wet weather after damage by hordes of wild pigs means a long-running West Coast horse racing meet can not go ahead.

The Kumara Racing Club meet scheduled for Saturday will now be held at Greymouth's Omoto race course.

Kumara Racing Club president Patrick Meates said stewards inspected the track at the Kumara Race Course on Monday and raised health and safety concerns.

"It was coming along fine but we had some very bad weather and the very hard decision was made to offer our day to Greymouth. It was a hard decision to make but it was the best thing for the club and racing on the West Coast," he said.
