Our Community Protection Planning Coordinator, Inspector Ian Cook, writes ...

Currently I am in the process of reviewing North Arm Cove's Community Protection Plan, and attempting to begin producing a new set of maps (which will include new maps for the Interpretive sign at the hall).

It is important to show the progress that has made towards increasing preparedness of the community.

I note all of the identified Asset Protection Zones are either in place, or nearly complete, with treatment schedules in place.

MRM were on site at the Community Centre today (22nd July 2021) to install the new power pole and transformer.  Cables were upgrated and a new power box also installed.  We all endured the lack of power most of the day but it will be worth it... the next step is for solar panels and batteries!

Deferred for a second time!

Unfortunately we have decided to defer the Winter Soltice bonfire yet again! It had been rescheduled for Sunday 25th July.

Due to the current Covid restrictions and concerns that visitors to North Arm Cove may impose to our area, we feel it appropriate cancel once again. Sincere apologies and hopefully we can resurrect this event in the not too distant future. :)

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.
