Following lunch at the Australia day celebration at Heros Beach, we decided to attend the fireworks at Karuah at 9pm. What a spectacular show!! The fireworks were set off in the vacant block of land adjacent to the RSL carpark. All we had to do was drive up, park the car and get out our chairs- just a small crowd and no need to walk anywhere. If you want a sore neck and to breathe up the smoke, you can get up very close, but the view from a bit further back is better.

After spending the afternoon at...

Further to my article last Sunday, more dumped asbestos has been found in the non-urban area.

This pile was found by a non-urban landowner, and details have been reported to Council.

It is located on the corner of Somerset Avenue and Ballina Crescent, about 300m from Carrington Road. It has possibly been there for a few weeks.

Australia Day 2023 - Heros Beach and Reserve

Australia Day 2023 - celebrations were huge crowd pleaser at Heros Beach and Reserve... timing of high tide was perfect as too the weather... with children splashing about in the shallows on inflatables and adults too! Sausage sizzle, ice cold drinks on hand and lots of good cheer catching up with old neighbours and friends (and meeting /making new). The games were a delight for the children (and parents)!

This is always a good week to reflect on Australia's past. But how much do you really know of Australia's history over the past quarter of a millenia? Print off, and test yourself on, the attached Australiana crossword.

There are 41 words, names or abbreviations to fill in. Give yourself a point for each.

A score of
10+ is a good try,
20+ is a pass,
30+ is admirable, and if you manage
40+ you can call yourself an accomplished Australian Historian.

The solution to the crossword will be published next week.

A resident was recently going for a walk along Allandale Crescent north of the village, and went down a bush track towards the waterfront.

The resident was horrified to find a big pile of dumped asbestos sheeting. Most of it had been wrapped in black plastic sheeting, but some of it was loose on the top of the pile. The pile was quite large, it would need to have been transported there by a ute or small truck.

Dumping asbestos is highly illegal, and envrionmental vandalism.

Considering the remote out of the way location, whoever dumped it...

Names never count - said C.J. Dennis's Sentimental Bloke - But ar, I like "Doreen!" 

It is true that roses would still smell as sweet whatever you called them - yet knowing the correct name of a place or street when you are travelling can be quite handy.
