Steering group

Last year, MidCoast Council sent out a postcard asking residents and property owners what they liked about the North Arm Cove and Carrington area and what improvements they would like to see. This was a prelude to forming a steering group to develop a Local Community Plan (LCP).

Council’s idea for a Community Plan is "for people within a community to come together, have a conversation about what they want for the future and develop a plan for how they will get there." We were told at the last NACCAi meeting by our local council representative, Len Roberts, that...

Last Friday 28 May 2021 MidCoast Council sent out an email which provided an update on its Zoning In project and preparation of its Rural Strategy.

The Rural Strategy is important for North Arm Cove as it will determine the future of the non-urban land surrounding the village. This land is currently zoned Rural and is a "paper subdivision".

A  bulky waste kerbside collection for North Arm Cove residents will take place between 4-10 June. It's a great opportunity to dispose of those bulky, unwanted items without even leaving the Cove BUT it is important not to place items out before Wednesday 2 June.

Council advises that, to make the most of Bulky Waste and avoid being fined, we should take some time beforehand to understand what items will be accepted (and what won't), how it should be presented for collection, and when to place it out.

We have received the following message from Dr Hennes at Karuah Medical Centre.

"People aged 40-49 can register for the Pfizer vaccine here: People will be contacted when a booking is available at John Hunter Hospital."

Remember that the Pfizer vaccine has to be stored at very low temperatures and it will not be as readily available at your local GP as the Astrazeneca Vaccine. You may have to attend a dedicated clinic where there are adequate storage facilities.

It is still Volunteers Week. In my article on volunteers, I forgot one of our most important volunteers, the editor of Cove News, Loal Conroy.

Last year, Loal took on the task of providing us with the Cove News. I know from many discussions with the previous editor, Maureen Kelly, that this can be a big job. Many of us seniors prefer the written word in hard copy, so a big thank you to Loal and all the volunteers who help her. Your hard work is much appreciated.



Thank you to all our sponsors including
