Delivery for new parking area

Thanks to a big roll-up at working bees in late April and early May followed by some intensive effort from some of David Read's team, progress on implementing the Community Precinct is ahead of schedule. This work is being in part funded by a Stronger Communities grant of $47,940 that was obtained by the Residents Association in late 2016.

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...

Many of the Cove community are familiar with popular pharmacist Wilson Soh from his time at the Karuah then Tea Gardens Pharmacies. So it is great news to find that Wilson has returned to the Karuah Pharmacy, this time as Manager.
