Couple kicking goals on their Crazy Joker quest

IT'S NOT set in stone but Jenni and Tom Newberry are quietly confident they will be staging the grand opening of The Crazy Joker on Saturday, April 5.

Their planning consultants received the Rockhampton Regional Council's decision notice approving the development (subject to conditions) on March 20.

The Newberrys are now just waiting on building approval for the commercial kitchen they've planned for the Bolsover St location.

"It should be only a few days away," Jenni said. "It's coming along really well at this point, and we've had a lot of community help."

The Newberrys, pictured with their children Eve and Zac, relocated from Brisbane to save The Crazy Joker.

The children's entertainment centre was set to close after the former owners received an eviction notice from the building where they were operating.
