The Wickham Bistro is a poised for a spruce up with Rambla Bar Pty Ltd, who are associated with Karratha’s Blanche Bar to take over management and operations of the facility on behalf of the City of Karratha.
The agreement is subject to the signing of a formal agreement with Rio Tinto to take over the management of the facility.
The City has been operating the Wickham Recreation Precinct following an agreement with Rio Tinto signed in 2014.
City of Karratha Deputy Mayor John Lally said it was a great step to have a local business take over the management of the facility to provide a great dining and bar experience for the Wickham Community.
“The opening of the Wickham Bistro was a great step forward for Wickham and has helped to activate the recreation precinct as a great place to socialise,” Cr Lally said.
“Having the facility managed by an experienced hospitality provider like Rambla Bar will allow us to take it to the next level and give a new dining experience in Wickham similar to what can be experienced in Karratha,” he said.
“We have built strong partnerships with local businesses to operate food and beverage outlets in our facilities and I hope this will be similarly successful.”
The change in management will be subject to the City coming to and agreement with Rio Tinto under the City of Karratha and Rio Tinto partnership arrangements.
