A web celebration

dougkSat, 25/02/2012 - 12:50pm

Today, before local dignitaries plus a swag of enthusiastic locals, the North Arm Cove Website was officially launched by Mayor Jan McWilliams. Others present included Craig Baumann MP, Councillor Len Roberts, Council GM Glenn Handford and some of our generous sponsors. We say a big thankyou to our sponsors and also to our many editors who have taken on responsibility for various portions of the site.

You may wonder why this new website is so important to North Arm Cove?

Communication is the glue that binds a community together. Some villages have their pub, their club or shopping centre. In others, the houses sit cheek by jowl perhaps huddled around a square, a church or village hall. In our beautiful village, the houses are spread thinly, close by a lengthy shoreline. Even the roadways tend to divide us into disjoint parts. What sort of community would we be if we did not have Maureen Kelly's monthly Cove News: to nudge us to participate in cooperative activities; to alert us to community happenings; and to report on our achievements and personal milestones.

Our community website is intended to both supplement and complement that important role played by Cove News. We didn't want something you look at once, admire for its pretty pictures then forget about. (Although pretty pictures are welcome!)

We want our website to be a dynamic resource for our community, for its many groups and committees. It will be an on-line meeting place where issues of concern can be explored and discussed in a constructive and civil manner. It will enable any one of us to initiate and gain support for new community ventures. It will remind us of upcoming events and alert us to matters of urgent concern.

We hope you come back, visit us often and, if you are local, make many contributions to the site!
