Notices for Offshore Residents of Pittwater, Australia





The ANZAC DAY address will be given this year by Paul Purvis of Elvina Bay

Floating Landcare is coming to Scotland Island!

Residents are invited to join in and help tackle the weeds in Catherine Park on Saturday 11th May.   This is an opportunity for residents to join with volunteers and be a part of Floating Landcare, a project being coordinated by the Hawkesbury-Nepean Catchment Management Authority in partnership with Pittwater Council and others, with funding from the NSW Environmental Trust.

Rebecca Mooy, Floating Landcare Coordinator said it’s a great way for people to get directly involved in improving their local landscape, see new sites and meet like-minded people. Volunteers get a free lunch and snacks and it’s really a chance to get out there and learn some new bush regeneration skills.  We will work together on the day to manage the spread of weeds assisting the bushland in the Park to recover.

Willing residents should meet in Catherine Park at 9am.  Others coming to the Island to help out should meet at Church Point Wharf at 8:30am. Volunteers need to bring along a bottle of water, wear long sleeves, trousers, enclosed shoes, hat, suncream and bug spray (RID or Bushmans).  All tools, gloves and training will be provided.  This is a FREE activity and includes the transport to and from the Island. The day will conclude at 1pm on the Island and for those returning to Church Point we anticipate returning by 1:30pm.

To assist with catering and ferry bookings your RSVP is essential please contact Rebecca Mooy on 02 4725 3055 or email rebecca.mooy@cma.nsw.gov.au by Monday 6th May 2013.  Places are limited to 20 volunteers.

Can’t make this activity but would like to find out more?  There are another 7 Floating Landcare activities planned for the remainder of 2013.

A pair of glasses last week on the road between Tennis wharf and our home at top of Thompson Street (next door to Julie and Brian Rodgers ). They were on top of the roof of our car ( don't ask !)
