Clearly water quality and effluent disposal are topics of keen interest to local residents! There was a big attendance at Saturday's Residents Association and Malcolm Hunter, MidCoast Council's Environmental Health Coordinator, responded to questions from interested residents for more than an hour. Many of those questions and responses have been captured in the attached minutes of the meeting.

The meeting also covered a wide range of other local issues - including the pending release of the report on the Boat Ramp Investigation and the results of the survey on children's recreation activities in the Cove.

Work on the walking track and play area is well advanced and a bmx track is being shaped at the southern end of the reserve. The new parking area behind the hall is also taking shape. A big thank you...

We are starting the new village green opposite the Hall and we would like your help. Please can you give a couple of hours of your time?

The new green will be a place with a trail for walking, a place to take your kids or grandkids for a bike ride or to play a ball game, or just a place to sit and listen to the birds whilst taking in the native surrounds.

The work is essential but simple entailing the collection of weeds and tree debris, plant identification and general clearance in preparation for seeding and...
