With Parliamentary sittings over now for 2017, Federal MPs are able to return to their electorates and address local issues.

Our Federal MP, Dr David Gillespie has arranged a visit to the Cove this coming Wednesday, 13 November. We are hopeful that this visit means he will have some good news to tell the Cove. If you are available around 3pm and would like to hear what David has to say, head along to the Community Hall.  Afternoon tea will be provided - and copies of the North Arm Cove Book will also be available for purchase!

November 2017 has now passed us  by, but sadly the frequently promised construction and sealing of The Esplanade East has again failed to materialise.

November has certainly been a big month for sales of Old Masters. A Da Vinci painting sold at auction in New York for a mind-boggling $A591million. Closer to home, did you see that our own MidCoast Council has been off on its own Old Masters buying spree as well?

In a something of a surprise, at the first meeting of the new Council held yesterday (27 September), David West of Brimbin was elected Mayor and Katheryn Smith of Gloucester, Deputy Mayor.

Informal did extremely well in Saturday's Council Elections for MidCoast. With around 12.5% of the total votes cast on the day, it has beaten every group apart from Country Labor!
