AN antique clock that once occupied a spot in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court will be one of the most sought after items at an auction with a difference at Adamshurst today.
The former operators of the Adamshurst restaurant and function centre are holding the clearance of goods and chattles they have used for the past seven years.
The auction, to be conducted by Scott Andrews, will start at 10.30am at Adamshurst.
Viewing of items will take place from 8am.
Tim Howe and Chris O’Connor served their last meals at Adamshurst last year before the property was sold recently to Father Peter MacLeod-Miller’s family.
Adamshurst will become the permanent residence of the St Matthew’s church archdeacon with his mother Sandra planning to spend more time in Albury.
“I was hoping when the building sold someone would want to re-open it as a restaurant and give me lots of money for everything that is here,” Mr Howe said.
“Fortunately for Father Peter he has bought it as a house and we need to offload everything.”
Mr Howe has recently signed up for a five-year catering contract at Wagga RSL Club.
Other items expected to attract plenty of interest today include signed Hollywood memorabilia, leather chairs, antique sideboards and coolroom fridges.
