A much-loved outback WA pub has banned a long-held practise of allowing guests to write on the walls due to what it claims is a lack of respect in the modern world.
The Broad Arrow Tavern, north of Kalgoorlie-Boulder on the Goldfields Hwy, has long been a popular stopover for locals and tourists, drawn by the chance to write on the pub walls.
The pub took to social media this week to inform the public this would no longer be allowed.
“We regret to inform you that we will no longer be allowing people to write on our walls,” the post read.
“Sadly, we live in a world now where there is just little to no respect, not only are some people writing and drawing inappropriate things but they are also writing over all the old signatures too and we want to try and preserve as much of the old stuff as we can.
“Thank you for your understanding.”
Punters responding to the post were mostly supportive of the move, applauding the pub’s move to preserve the history already written on the walls.
More to come….
