DEMOLISHED: This disused shed in the Virginia Lake reserve has been demolished. Whanganui District Council senior parks officer Wendy Bainbridge said council was not sure of the exact age of the building but believe it was built in the 1950s or 1960s. "The building has become quite dilapidated. The wood, the concrete in the floor and the roof were in need of expenditure that could not be justified for a building that was no longer used," Ms Bainbridge said. Council considered using part of the building as a shelter but she said the costs were too high. The ground will be reinstated in lawn.
