New Tank Installation : The garden is having the best season ever at present after the rain, there are free herbs for picking, and residents are invitied to join the pickers for vegetable etc by paying the annual $30 fee.

A new 58,000 litre water tank funded by the Office of Gambling will provide for the need for water in the future. The Garden Group is raising funds for the community contribution to the project to provide the base. So pickers fees will be greatly appreciated.

New Members: Gardeners and potential gardeners are invited to join the NACGarden...

Tony and Pat have raised the issue of why we like to live in North Arm Cove and the changes that will happen if dual occupancies are allowed.

There are three types of dual occupancy- duplexes, detached separate dwellings and granny flats. Governments of all persuasions like them because they provide affordable housing and they make the best use of existing services such as water, electricity and sewerage, meaning that greenfield areas do not have to be opened up....

The Annnual Tide to Tip Estuary Clean-up will be held in our area on Wednesday, 17 February.

If you have retrieved any waste from the waterway and still have it on site, please leave it visible on the shore. Local oyster farmers (and others) will move through the area at high tide on Wednesday and collect any rubbish they find. If you live near any parks or public land, you can help by piling up any rubbish from these...

1. What's happening with our local community plan, what residents really think about the Cove, and what their infrastructure priorities are?

2. The defibrillator, when will we get it, where will it be installed, and what training will be provided?

3. Proposals for dual occupancy, and what impact they could have on the Cove's "character"?

4. What's happening about carparking and landscaping next to the Community Centre, and the power and water upgrade?

We can imagine that early settlers came to the Cove and loved its isolation and back-to-nature character.

We have heard that some later packed their bags when the streets were paved and urbanisation took hold. For them, there was already too much going on in NAC.

But for others today, NAC is far from ‘full’. More intense development is seen as necessary for its potential to improve investment returns through asset appreciation and rental arrangements such as Airbnb....

The first NACCAi ordinary meeting for 2021 is being held this coming Saturday, 13th February 2021, at the Community Centre.

Please note that the meeting will be held from 2pm to 4pm, instead of in the mornings as previously held.

This is because the coffee shop will be open in the morning, and it is not practical to hold the meeting at the same time.

The agenda and the finance and subcommittee reports, together with the draft minutes from the December 2020 meeting, are attached.

Covid safe arrangements will be in place for the meeting.

What a busy morning - Saturday 6th February 2021...!

Volunteers were rushed off their feet with orders - friends and neighbours catching up over coffee and cake - Saturday's seem to be a popular day for a relaxing coffee and natter.  Now serving iced coffee, mocha and chocolate with some really delicious treats too.

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.
