Church Point Cargo Wharf construction commencesThank you for your continued interest in the work we’re undertaking in the Church Point precinct.
We’re pleased to advise that the next phase of the Church Point Precinct Upgrade will start next week - the reconstruction of the Church Point Cargo Wharf. This upgrade will improve user safety and functionality for both private and commercial uses.
The new cargo wharf will extend further into the water and be slightly wider so as to remove the impact on traffic flow on McCarrs Creek Road and make berthing easier for vessels.
In preparation for reconstruction work the old wharf will be closed for the duration of the works starting from 29 October. We ask that any materials currently stored on the wharf be removed by 24 October.
The reconstruction involves demolishing the old cargo wharf structure, which has been in operation for decades, and replacing it with a suspended concrete structure, better suited to meet the demands of the commercial enterprises operating out of Church Point.
To assist wharf users and the off shore community we will construct a smaller temporary wharf which will be completed and operational prior to the closure of the old wharf. It’s anticipated the closure of the old wharf will be for eight weeks, weather permitting. The temporary wharf will be removed following the opening of the new wharf.
To improve the functionality of the temporary wharf, a temporary hardstand area has been made available next to the temporary wharf, available for public use. However, we do ask that no materials, bins or other deliveries are to be left unattended in the hardstand area, as these will take up already reduced space. Anything stored in this area which is affecting the functionality of the temporary wharf will be removed by Council.
Regular cargo wharf users are encouraged to use the boat ramp at Rowland Reserve in Bayview, where possible, as the temporary wharf has a smaller capacity and will require coordination between users.
3 October Site establishment

Ticks are dangerous parasites that can kill your pet.
What happens if you find a tick on your pet?If you find a tick on your pet and they are showing any signs of paralysis please contact us immediately. If your pet seems normal you can remove the tick with a tick hook and watch it very carefully. Keep your pet cool and quiet for 24 hours.
Avoid feeding dogs as they may have trouble swallowing which could lead to regurgitation and then pneumonia.
If your pet is showing no signs after 24 hours then that tick will probably not cause paralysis. Make sure you search for other ticks and update your tick prevention.
The signs of tick poisoningThe paralysis tick injects a toxin into its host dog or cat as it feeds. Increased body temperature due to either hot weather or exercise will exacerbate symptoms.
If left to run its course, a case of tick poisoning goes through three stages.
How can you find a tick on your pet?
Most ticks are found around the head and neck of the animal as well as inside the ears, but they can end up anywhere on the body. In tick season it is important to use a good tick preventive and also to search your pet every day. A small tick missed one day can be found the next and save your pets life.
Paralysis ticks that can kill your pet are usually between 3mm and 10mm in diameter. They attach with their mouth parts making a hole in the skin which can often be painful or itchy. The body of the tick sticks out from the skin. Sometimes a skin tag can be mistaken for a tick. By moving any skin lump around and looking at it’s attachment to the skin you can generally tell the difference. Pulling a skin tag off can be painful and upset your pet, but you wont be the first owner who has done this.
Paralysis ticks can be difficult to pull out as they hold on tightly with their mouth parts and when removed leave a hole in the skin called a tick crater. The tick crater will be 3-10mm across and take a month to heal. As it heals it forms a thick scab. Try not to pick at the scab as it will become infected and sore.
The most reliable way to locate ticks is to systematically run your fingers through your cat or dog’s coat. Press your fingertips down to the skin level and draw systematic little circles trying to cover the whole skin surface. Start at the nose and move along between the nose and eyes. Search in the lips and around the ears. It is especially important to search long haired dogs very thoroughly between the eyes and the end of the nose as this is a common area for ticks to be missed.
Always remove your pets collar rather than just pushing it out of the way. If you find a bump or a sore spot separate the hair and examine the skin. The tick will be attached with the head buried under the skin and the body sticking out from the skin.
Continue running your fingers around the neck, armpits, legs, between the toes, along the tail and around the anus and vulva. Some tick bites are very sore so if you have an area that your pet doesn’t want examined it is best to examine that area carefully in case there is a tick hiding. Ticks can also cause local paralysis. A tick above an eye will often cause paralysis of the eyelids and an inability to blink for up to 4 weeks. Sometimes the face will look asymmetrical giving you a hint that there is a tick hiding somewhere.
We find using a tick hook like the green one shown below to be the most reliable way to remove ticks. If the head is left in, don’t worry as the tick will die and inject no more poison. Always assume there is more than one tick and continue your systematic search.
It is true that animals can develop an immunity to tick poison, but it requires repeated mild poisoning and may last only one season. Even those animals that do build up an immunity can still wind up paralysed if they’re bitten by multiple ticks or a particularly toxic one. It’s not a good idea to count on your pet being one of the lucky ones that develop immunity.

My name is Colin and I’m the big bloke behind the counter who loves to talk food and wine with people who are passionate about quality ingredients and supporting Australian producers.
At PP&F, we go directly to the source for freshness and variety (which means we can give offshorers a 10% discount on their purchases).
Our bread comes from La Banette in Mona Vale, our fruit and vegetables come from Alex’s farm in Orange (next time you come in, ask to try one of his apples, they’re wonderfully sweet and crisp), our milk comes directly from farmer-owned Norco, and our fabulous chorizo comes from the justifiably renowned Eumundi Smokehouse. Our meat is free range and our eggs are organic. We stock a wide range of Australian and international cheeses with crackers to suit every style (try the charcoal crackers with a heaven slice of blue cheese – it’s Pepe’s pick and it’s magic) and we’re working to source delicious new cheeses from country areas in NSW.
As the days get longer and summer tickles our taste buds, we’re planning to host grazing table evenings with cheese, olives, salamis and matching wines. So stay tuned…and if you need to replace your gas bottle or soda stream, we can help you there, too.

All the Wine that's fit to Drink :)Greetings,
I see warmth at the end of the dreadfully dry winter months. I'm not talking 'dry' as in wine consumption, rather the lack of rain. There is light at the end of the wine rainbow on October 21st as you will see below. I have been assured by Jim (you DO know who Jim is I assume) that the next wine tasting has the most splendid range of reds and whites and of course a fine quality yet inexpensive bubbly.
Even better news! This tasting is at your editor's palace in Elvina Bay. No excuse for the gentry of the western shores not to attend.
I can't give you the tasting notes yet as they are bundled up with the HSC exam papers and not to be revealed for a week or so. But you will get another mail from me as soon as I know.
Where: Paul and Pamela's newly rebuilt home in Elvina Bay (third jetty in on the south side of the bay)
When: Sunday October 21st 2018
Bring: A plate of food to share - as simple or complex as you like. A wine glass. A pen. Self.
Last comment: We really want to get a great crowd this tasting.
There is plenty of room for your boat on the jetty and the weather forecast id looking good....
Bring family, friends, enemies.
