As the partner of one of the Constitution Subcommittee members, I have listened as many people have called Bob over and expressed their views. A modified quote- “Why do good people hold such wildly differing views and why do others’ views seem so illogical”? It is obvious that we have a broad range of opinions about some of the clauses that need to be in the new constitution and we are not going to always agree.

The subcommittee tried to take a middle path in December and 68% of people voted for the December draft. 75% was required and...

I have received an email, as may have many other members, dated 20th January purporting to be an ‘Update from North Arm Cove Community Association’, although nowhere does it specify which members of the association have authored the pronouncements or whether it is the product of a lone individual.

This is a complete shemozzle, a giant stuff-up that should never have happened and must be fixed!

At the Fire Drill meeting at the Community Hall on Saturday 18th of Jan  RFS Community Engagement Facilitator Margaret Hunt, has volunteered to visit any resident’s property in the Cove to assist and give advice on how to keep and make your home safer in the event of a major bushfire in the Cove.

The RFS unfortunately are unable to offer house protection to homes in the Cove in the event of a bushfire, if going on to that property might endanger the lives of their members because of any unsafe conditions that may exist there on.
