Full house again in Circle Street shops

THERE is once again full occupancy in New Norfolk’s small Circle St shopping strip following this week’s re-opening of the popular Circle Coffee House. Penny and Brett Wallner’s cafe opened its doors on Monday morning, welcoming back many of the customers from the original location further around the circle, which was destroyed by fire two years ago.

The return of Circle Coffee results in a full house in the small strip of shops opposite the Derwent Valley Council Chambers. The whole building has been spruced up to match the adjoining former The Mills/Harcourts premises on the corner of Circle and High streets. That building remains empty, with eviction notices recently posted on several windows by the landlord, Tasmanian Pensioners Association.

Next door to the Coffee House, experienced architect Roy Higman has recently opened an office for his business, RHarchitecture. Occupying the next two premises is The Gospel Barbershop, which bought and renamed the former New Norfolk Barbers and Ladies Room Salon last year.

Despite a flurry of activity several months ago, there has been no further progress on the rebuilding of the now-demolished building that previously housed Circle Coffee House and Derwent Valley Physiotherpy. Builders’ signage has been removed from the security fencing at the site.
