PLEASE DON’T PARK AT THE OLD WHARF
STEPS AT CHURCH POINT!
Lately, boats are being parked at the old wharf steps at Church Point,
and increasingly they are big ones which are hard to shift.
We only still have this traditional wharf because a dedicated group of
Church Point and offshore residents fought to retain it. Besides adding
to the charm of the Point, it is really useful.
The solid steps, except at dead low tide, are easier to use to from a
small tinnie than the pontoon which is too high and has nothing to hold
Last year, Tony had weak legs all year and we depended on the steps for
him to be able to get in and out of our boat. The pontoon was just too
big a jump for him.
Many other people have told me they use the steps with people who are
Even for the able bodied, the wharf steps are often safer as they are
away from the ferries and taxi and offer something to grab in a high
(Shhh! - it’s also illegal to tie up at a public wharf.)
SHARE THE STEPS !
If you also like using wharf steps, keep your eye on Council’s plans to
progressively remove them and speak up. The current plans for Tennis
Wharf have “Remove Steps” on them, to happen when they next need

Local car enthusiasts have a treat in store with the American Car
Sunday event to be held at Pittwater Rugby Park on Sunday 28 February.
This one-day event will see close to 400 American cars on display and
is hosted by Pittwater Rotary Club.
Organiser Bob Radnidge said the public would be able to feast their
eyes on some American classic automobiles, including Cadillacs,
Corvettes, Chevrolets, as well as a pristine 1927 Stuz, the American
version of the Rolls Royce.
“There will be also be a 1956 Lincoln Continental at the event, so
popular that even Elvis owned one,” said Mr Radnidge.
The event is open to American-made vehicles only, with entry by ‘gold
coin’ for exhibitors. All proceeds from the event will be donated to
charities, with last year over $11, 000 raised.
Last year the event attracted car enthusiasts from as far away as
Victoria and Queensland, with trophies on offer for the best exhibits.
Local owners of American cars are also invited to participate.
The event is suitable for the whole family, with a free kid’s jumping
castle, barbecue and drinks.
This year money raised on the day will go to buy items off a ‘wish
list’ for the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
Pittwater Rotary will also have part of the proceeds for their ‘shelter
boxes’, that offer emergency shelter for people affected by disasters
around the world such as Haiti.
Gates open at 8am. Admission is $15 for a family, $8 for adults and $5
