ANNUAL MOTOR VEHICLE REGO DAY
SATURDAY, JULY 8, 2017
SCOTLAND ISLAND FIRE
STATION 9.00AM TO 2.00PM
To assist vehicle owners with registering their vehicles,
in 1995, SIRA negotiated and obtained permission approval from the RMS
for the Fire Station to become a registered inspection station.
Pink slips are issued annually and are valid until the registration
date within the year. Warriewood RMS is aware of this arrangement
and will accept renewals with these pink slips.
SIRA supports the registration of all motor vehicles on Scotland
Island. Residents with unregistered vehicles in use are putting
the community at risk through the lack of third party liability
cover. Should an accident ever occur that results in injury to
the driver, passengers or pedestrians, it would devastate our
REGO PAPERS PLUS MOTOR VEHICLE
$60.00 PER VEHICLE $10.00 S.I.R.F.B.
This will be a once only inspection
Please present vehicles in roadworthy condition
Rejection slips will be issued for vehicles not conforming to RMS

Before a concert there’s always a buzz – a frisson of excitement. On
stage the flautist Jane Rutter, vivacious and quick-moving with her
acclaimed pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska, rehearse a slow and beautiful
movement that I do not recognise. One thing is certain – to-night all
the music will be French. A large screen at the back of the stage
suddenly springs into life with one of Monet’s paintings and in a
it disappears. The cellist – David Pereira, a serious looking man now
stage sways as he plays a gentle and recognisable piece with sublime
sensitivity. Looking at him I feel he could only be a cellist.
Chrisopher Latham, the Director and a violinist of repute is organising
the seating on stage.
It is 7.30pm and the hall is almost full. Lively chatter from the
warmly-clad audience, drawn to this enticing evening of French music
Monet paintings. The stylish programme is titled “Monet: The Flowers of
War. The Last Shining of the Belle Epoque” features one of his
paintings on the cover.
The concert is over. The performance lasted seventy minutes without
pause and I noticed everyone was totally entranced both by the music
the ever-changing Monet masterpieces as visual projections of his
at Giverny merged and dissolved to display yet another glorious scene
the wide screen. The music of Debussy, Ravel, Lily Boulanger,
Philippe's and Jean Cras accompanied seven short segments
featuring Monet’s garden, each piece chosen with care and played to
perfection by the soloists.
It has been a magical, memorable evening of dazzling music and
virtuosic playing by the musicians who bow and acknowledge the roar of
approval by the audience. The musicians are Jane Rutter, flute,
Tamara-Anna Cislowska, piano, David Pereira, cello and
Christopher Latham, violin. The clapping goes on for a long time; some
of it is for Monet I am sure.Champagne and a delicious assortment of
sandwiches are handed round after the guests have taken their chairs to
the back of the hall that resounds with their lively exchanges until
The next concert is a
matinée at 2.30pm on 23rd July.
