JENNY Brown, who has worked for Axedale General Store for nearly 10 years, thinks Project Platypus is all about raising the profile of Axedale and encouraging more people to visit.
“Both as a resident of Axedale and shop-wise, I think it is good for the community,” she said.
“I hope it brings more customers.
“The shop donates to functions to help raise money for the projects to see more people in Axedale.
“It is not congested like it is in town you can get stuff done without being in a rush.
‘The shop has everything; we are a post office as well.
“The idea to open the river up is definitely a good idea, people like to swim; it will be great to get it up and going.”
