buggy owners and drivers need to be reminded of the responsibility they
have either when behind the wheel or to who they give the key.
Buggies should NOT

Buggies are NOT
for joyriding or doing wheelies in Catherine Park.
Riding on the back step is NOT
advisable. Buggies are unstable vehicles and our roads are hazardous to
say the least. Better to make two safe trips than dangerous one.
With Northern Beaches Council putting the issue of conditional
licensing on the backburner, please don’t provide any reason for our

Goodwill Christmas Lunch
Click images to see photos
43 people enjoyed our Christmas lunch this year, including some new
comers to the Island. What a way to welcome them !
Nathalie and her
small crew of helpers created yet another wonderful feast, with stuffed
tomatoes, turkey, ham, potato bake, green vegetables, carrots, an
amazing spiced vegetarian roll, Christmas cake ice cream and Christmas
brandy butter. More than enough for second and third helpings for some,
and take away for quite a few too.

A huge thank you to the many
contributors, including all the people at the lunch, who helped make
this our most successful Christmas lunch yet. Special mention has to go
to the following for their generous contributions; Lexie Le
Blang , Joe
Smith, Sally Wandless, Brian & Julie Rogers, Leslie Stevenson and
the Christmas cake competition bakers, Penny Gleen ( Church Point Ferry
Service ), Georgina and Peter
Lalor, Fran and Alex and last but not least Stew Hassel for always
available to help no matter what.
We had a ball !

Church Point Cafe -
Artists play between 3:30 - 6:30pm
Jan 7: Rob Woolf Trio :
Rob Woolf Trio have collectively played with a who’s who of Australian
talent from Diesel to Karise Eden, from hop hop artist Phrase, to Luke
Steele, Silverchair, Ruby Roots, Guy Sebastian, The Tamborine Girls,
Tim Finn and more. They have backed the Jamaican Rocksteady great,
Stranger Cole, dancehall originator Johnny Osbourne, the US blues
legend Eugene Bridges and are also members of the best loved reggae
outfits King Tide and The Strides.
But it is within a quieter bare bones approach as a trio that they can
simply relax and remind themselves of all the music that they cherish
from New Orleans, blues and soul from Memphis and Chicago. The band
features Rob Woolf on keyboards and vocals, Carlos Adura on drums and
Rowan Lane on bass and is in my opinion an afternoon not to be missed.
Jan 14: Lloyd G & the Ambassadors :
Sun Jan 14: Lloyd G & the Ambassadors draw their repertoire from
earliest blues to 50’s, 60’s rock n roll (think Chuck Berry) to current
day Robert Plant’s Band of Joy and his Raising Sand album, to JD
McPherson. They are driven by the music that shaped great bands like
the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, their words, stories and melodies
that take you into another world, and they are motivated to play it by
the audience’s reaction to good music and the sense of honour they feel
in creating the grooves that bring joy.
Sun Jan 21: Rebecca Johnson Band :
Sun Jan 21: Rebecca Johnson Band are back to give us another dose of
their fabulous soul, funk & pop classics. Rebecca and her band have
won the hearts of our regulars at the Co-Op Club who are in awe of her
great bass playing accompanied by her husband Con Settineri on the
drums and guitar player James Vertley ripping it up time after time.
Definitely book for this one!
