Christmas in July Dinner

14th July from 7pm

We are only going to accept advanced bookings for this event with a cut-off date of Tuesday 10th

It's that time of the year again - the start of the Scotland Island Fire Shed Dinners was kicked off in style with our Spit Roast Feast. This dinner was huge success with over 100 attendees with 83 booking online.

The next Fire Shed Dinner will be 'Christmas in July' on 14th July hosted by Nathalie Muir who will recreate the Christmas feast that she and Julian hosted at the Fire Shed on Christmas day, including a visit by that very special person. Parents are encouraged to bring a small inexpensive gift for their young children.

To make the organising and catering more predictable for our hosts we are only going to accept advanced bookings for this event with a cut-off date of Tuesday 10th July.

Please help by registering here Fireshed Dinner - Christmas in July (you can still pay at the door with cash or EFTPOS if that's easier, but please register in advance by 10th July).

If you have problems booking online you can always send us an email with your booking details to secretary@sirfb.org.au

All funds raised help provide fire, medical and other emergency services to the Scotland Island community.


Scotland Island Annual Rego Day

Inspections Saturday 14 from (9am to 1pm)

Success for Motorcyclists!

Council is currently reviewing the allocation of spaces in the Church Point Car Park with the view to installing several motorcycle spaces by the end of July 2018 to cater for residents who use motorcycles to get around the local area.

This was an oversight in the original decision and we have now had multiple requests for this type of parking on the lower level of the new carpark.

Nominate The Next NSW Woman Of The Year

Northern Beaches residents are being encouraged to highlight the brilliant women in their community, with nominations now open for the 2019 NSW Women of the Year Awards.
Member for Manly James Griffin said the Awards recognise women who have demonstrated excellence in business and society or made outstanding contributions, both personally and professionally.
“So many local women pour their heart and soul into their careers, families and volunteer work, which strengthens and enriches our local community,” Mr Griffin said.
“I urge locals to submit a nomination and let the women in their lives know how much they are valued and appreciated.”
Minister for Women Tanya Davies officially opened statewide nominations ahead of the 2019 Women of the Year Awards program, which will be celebrating its eighth year.
“These Awards are our chance to recognise exceptional women across the State, particularly those who have excelled despite adversity or made contributions that improve the lives of others,” Mrs Davies said.
“Women from all walks of life make outstanding contributions to our communities while overcoming gender inequity to pursue their personal and professional goals.”
The 2019 NSW Women of the Year Award categories include:
  • NSW Premier’s Woman of the Year Award
  • NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year
  • Community Hero
  • Harvey Norman Young Woman of the Year
  • Rex Airlines Regional Woman of the Year
  • NSW Business Woman of the Year
  • First State Super Lifetime Achievement
Nominations for 2019 close on Sunday, 11 November 2018. For more information or to nominate visit www.women.nsw.gov.au.
The winners will be announced at an Awards ceremony on Thursday March 7, the day before International Women’s Day

July 8 - 21, 2018: Issue 367





We have just been advised that the ground investigations that were due to commence on Monday, 9th July at Carols Wharf will be delayed by a day. Predicted weather conditions over the weekend mean the barge won't be able to be transported to the area in time for a Monday start.

The work will now take place on Tuesday, 10th and Wednesday, 11th July.

Please keep the Carols Wharf area clear of vessels and watercraft as much as possible on these dates.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the change and thank you for your co-operation.
