A vote of thanks was made for the voluntary service put in over the past 12 months by the outgoing Committee, which I soundly endorse. Volunteers are the backbone of the community and provide many services and support which would simply not be available....

Birds in the Cove

North Arm Cove sounds like an aviary at the moment. The gums are still in flower and all sorts of birds are feeding and nesting.

I heard the channel-billed cuckoo for the first time this spring on 17 September. The Eastern koel has also arrived.The minor birds are busy chasing these larger birds wherever they go, mainly as they are cuckoos who lay their eggs in the nests of other birds.

The local plover was fussing in the middle of the night on Friday, so I hope his sole surviving chick...

Residents Association AGM
dougkFri, 06/10/2017 - 7:25pm

The Residents Association has just celebrated the past 50 years of community achievement in the Cove. A wonderful record indeed - but there is no time to rest on our laurels.

We now have a newly elected Council. Its attention will mostly be drawn elsewhere, addressing infrastructure backlogs, new developments and the demands of the big towns in the north.

We need the Cove's voice to be heard above the clamour. Plus there are local challenges to be addressed, goals to be fulfilled and projects to be implemented. Working together, we can ensure the Residents Association begins its...

In a something of a surprise, at the first meeting of the new Council held yesterday (27 September), David West of Brimbin was elected Mayor and Katheryn Smith of Gloucester, Deputy Mayor. These two Councillors were two of the last three Councillors elected following the 9 September election - both without achieving a quota. David West had been Deputy Mayor of Greater Taree prior to the merger and Katheryn Smith Deputy Mayor of Gloucester.

Probably the most disappointing aspect of the meeting was the adoption of the meeting schedule to apply until next February. It reinforces the idea that...

More than three months ago the North Arm Cove Hall was filled to overflowing with people from Bundabah, Pindimar and the Cove as well as places further afield. They were there to hear about a Development Application submitted to Council by LDF Enterprises for a private quarry to be located close to the southern boundary of Bundabah. Following that meeting, community members from across the area submitted a record number of objections to the quarry

With several of the current office bearers and committee members taking a break in this the Residents Association's 51st year, the Association is in need of several community-minded volunteers willing to step up and take their place. We need to maintain this long tradition of community service and representation. With a Council area of 10,000 square kilometres and a population of over 90,000 our small village on the Council's southern outskirts needs an active association to ensure its needs are addressed.

Are you able to contribute? More information can be obtained from the Association Secretary, Susan (4997 3395). A...

Query

Did you ever wonder why ...
Some people spell Boulevarde with a final E
while
there are others who spell Boulevard with no extra E?

Can both be right?

Council, it appears, is confused because some of our local signs have the E at the end but most official Council records show no extra E. Indeed most Boulevards in the world go without an E to finish. Although Hawks Nest of course has "The Boulevarde"! That final E hasn't been washed away - yet.
