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...

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)!

On last Wednesday 14 December 2022 MidCoast Council adopted the final version of the Rural Strategy and the Paper Subdivision Analysis Report, and decided to commence the development of the new Mid Coast Council Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plan (DCP).

The final versions of the Rural Strategy and the Paper Subdivision Analysis Report were based on the earlier draft versions that were on public display from August 2021 to February 2022 - there were 431 submissions made to Council on these draft documents.

This first image was created on a harmonograph (second picture) which I built mainly out of bits and pieces in my garage. Fascinating to watch the device as the image slowly emerges on the paper over about 5 minutes. If anyone's interested in how to make a harmonograph, you're welcome to contact me. Tony 0402 990 999

Yesterday we had a very successful working bee at the Yallarwah Park fitness track with lots of tidy up and landscaping work done:

preparing the areas adjacent to the exercise stations for turfing spreading topsoil and laying70 rolls of turf next to the exercise stations, the picnic table, and the south eastern section of the track spreading a truck load of mulch in the disturbed area along side the track near Water Street planting about 100 native plants kindly supplied by MidCoast Council scrubbing out some lantana and bitou bush growing in the centre.

We are organising a working bee this coming Saturday morning at Yallarwah Park between 8am and 12 noon to do some landscaping around the fitness track and weed removal in the native vegetation areas.

We would like to:

In the past week quite a bit has been done to progress the Yallarwah Park fitness track and exercise stations.

The exercise stations were installed, and earthworks were carried out to spread soil along the side of the concrete path and the concrete pads.

There are two sets of exercise equipment - one at the northern end of the track and one at the southern end.

The northern set contains three types of exercise equipment - a stretch station, a body twist station and an aerobic cycle wheel.

During the final stages of the construction of the Yallarwah Park exercise track and exercise stations there will be trip hazards along the edge of the concrete path and the concrete pads for the exercise stations.

Use caution when using the park and make sure you don't trip over the concrete edges.

Please inform other members of your family of these hazards.

Gary Sylvaney and I recently met with Evan Vale from MidCoast Council to get an update on planned works.

The good news is that works are planned for this financial year on Promontory Way and Cove Boulevarde.

Gary has updated the report and now included a section on priority allocation on the front page.

A copy of the updated report can be downloaded from the bottom of this post.

Many thanks to Evan Vale and his team for getting these high priority projects actioned. Our community really appreciates what they are doing.
