Did you know that we have our own local community radio station - Myall Coast Radio.

It is located in Tea Gardens and has presenters and DJ's from our local Myall Coast community, and weekly recorded shows, music for all generations, and news and sport on the hour.

You can listen to it by live streaming it on your home computer, your iPhone, your tablet and your smartphone.

The easiest way to access it is to put it on the home screen of your iPhone or smartphone.

Following recent feedback we have done a small change to the website that makes it easier to find and download PDF attachments from posted articles. 

Previously, if a post included a PDF attachment such as a report, the full report would be displayed before the link to download the report. If the report was a long one, such as the draft local community plan, you had to scroll through the whole report before you got to the download link. As a result of this some readers did not realise that the attachment was there and could be downloaded.

The documents set out the path that Council is planning to take to deliver long term improvements, projects and change.

Council is asking for the community to have a look at these documents and tell them whether we think they have missed anything or got something wrong.

The four documents are:

Wilma V Greenway

On Friday 27May 2022, family and friends filled the North Arm Cove Community Centre to bid farewell to a wonderful lady and attend a 'shindig' ( Wilma's words ). The main Hall was packed by those that knew and loved her... listening to the Service and reminiscing with family and friends on the legacy Wilma left us all... mostly laughter and a huge smile whenever we encountered her, especially at gatherings in the Cove.

By special arrangment, Coffee in the Cove hosted refreshments for The Morpeth Riders Group on Sunday 15 May 2022, when 10 riders and 11 horses enjoyed a visit to our village.

A few locals met with the group and a few 'pats' of the horses was in order. We hope to see them again soon.

I am really pleased to advise that the draft of our North Arm Cove and Carrington local community plan has finally been completed and is now released for resident review and feedback.

We are asking North Arm Cove and Carrington residents and landowners to read the plan and give us feedback on it and the initiatives listed in it. The feedback will be used to develop a final version of the plan which will then be submitted to MidCoast Council.



Thank you to all our sponsors including
