The annual Tide to Tip clean-ups are on again, with oyster farmers from 21 estuaries across NSW and QLD taking part this year.  Thanks to the 170+ volunteers who have already removed 6 tonnes of marine debris from our waterways, it's a fantastic result with volunteers dedicating 500+ hours to the initiative so far. 

The clean-ups will continue over the next few days, with more oyster farmers taking to the foreshores of their local estuaries to remove marine debris.

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.

We live in a special area without two of those major services, water and sewerage. In addition, we are...

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 areas as well. If you know of any concentrations of shoreline rubbish outside the village area, please send a screenshot...
