Tribute to Ian Souter
The SIRA Committee have sadly lost a valued colleague and friend who,
for many years, made valuable contributions to several important local
projects, particularly in relation to Church Point.
Discussions were robust as he imparted his valuable knowledge clearly
and concisely at many a meeting. His enthusiasm and eye for detail was
second to none.
Ian was involved from the very beginning with Church Point and spent
hours of his voluntary time working on acceptable design solutions with
Pittwater Council for the community benefit. His extensive knowledge
and expertise as a top marine surveyor enabled him to provide important
input and detail required for the Church Point Plan of Management,
particularly in relation to the foreshore and the Commuter Wharf.
Ian contributed large amounts of his professional expertise pro bono,
he attended the countless early Church Point Liaison Committee meetings
which were disbanded and resumed as the Church Point Design Group. He
earned significant respect from Council staff, as witnessed by the
attendance at his funeral of several Council Senior staff, where he was
farewelled by over 400 of his family, friends, colleagues and community
He fought to retain the public space around the Pasadena for all the
community and beyond to enjoy one of the most historic and beautiful
sites from which to view the marvellous Pittwater.
As people may have already read, he was recognised by the Institute of
Surveyors in the NSW Excellence in Surveying Awards 2013 for his
achievements, as a finalist in the category “People and Community” for
his work on the Church Point Development.
We will remember Ian as we go to and fro Church Point each day and his
legacy will live on, as future generations enjoy a stroll along the
foreshore of Pittwater.
The “General”, good friend, will be greatly missed.

A reference point
For our life’s arc
Scotland Island has a rich history of communicating with ‘inhabitants’
(of the human kind). Leicester Warburton, who edited the fabled
Scotland Island news (SINEWS) for 28 years until 1995, has graciously
provided the article included here that describes the evolution of the
newsletter and gives us a glimpse of life on the island at the time.
With appreciation and affection, we thank Leicester for putting this
history together for us.
Today SIRA has a number of communications approaches including: regular
news and items of interest in the PON; the SIRA website (www.scotlandisland.org.au)
which is a repository of information about the island; the Pittwater
Offshore Directory (POD); Community Forums and surveys on key issues;
notices on important events around the island at places such as public
wharves, ferries and Church Point and when appropriate, notices via
email to residents and property owners.
As in the past, this work takes a great deal of time, and thanks go to
Paul Purvis who produced the first edition of the PON and Julian Muir
who took over the reins for his long and faithful editorship, Carol
Floyd and Dan Humphries for design and stewardship of the website, the
SIRA Committee members who organise forums and surveys and Cass Gye for
maintaining the email list. For the POD, the many people involved in
its production including Deryn Vokins, Shar Jones, Jane
Wood , Paul and Joy Purvis, and Cass Gye, who was inspired to create
and produce the very first edition in 2000. And, finally, Jon Maxim for
leadership of the 2013 SIRA Communications Sub-Committee.
Story of ‘SINEWS’
When Scotland Island had
its very own newspaper
Most recent arrivals on the gem of Pittwater are unaware that a record
of life on the island over 60 years ago is archived in the Mona Vale
Library Local Studies Unit for residents to read at their leisure.
It was back in 1955 when the first two-page issue of the “Scotland
Island Progress Association Newsletter” was born, printed on an ancient
Gestetner and with a print run of about 50 copies. Not many were
needed in those days. Residents were mainly week-enders on waterfronts
with only a couple of houses owned by courageous climbers higher up in
the thick foliage.
Those early copies are faded now and so is my memory of the name of the
first editor who later fled to Gosford. I think it was Geoff
Steen. But the second was Ian “Bunks” Carmichael, a senior
executive at the ABC, who lived to survive a giant gum tree, blasted by
a fierce nighttime storm, topple over his house and come down, cutting
the house in two while they slept. His term as editor lasted for
two years, rallying residents to an occasional meeting in the fireshed
which stood, in those days, just near the end of the Tennis Wharf
One day “Bunks” announced that he was being sent to London by the ABC
to head the office there. Some sort of fall guy or eager beaver
was required to take over the island editor’s mantle. It seems I
was to be the bunny. It lasted for 28 years. It was during
this time that “Scotland Island News” was more conveniently condensed
into “S.I. News” and so it was referred to ever after.
Interestingly the subheading of “the journal of the Progress
Association” was later replaced by “the journal of the Residents
Association” when it was decided the residents felt the sylvan peace of
the island could be marred by the suburbanisation of progress per se.
I had trained as a journalist but was working in advertising at the
time so I did have some useful background experience to
contribute. I was also able to utilise some of my secretary’s
free time to cut the necessary stencils for our printing. As time
went on I was able to utilise the services of one of the artists at the
agency to design a far more professional and punchy masthead for the
title page. Later, I inveigled Gwyn Perkins to contribute his
skilled illustrations of topical island activities laced with his
wonderful sense of humour. This he continues to this day in the
paper’s outstandingly modern successor, “Pittwater Offshore News” at
the beginning of each month.
I set myself a whimsical task one day about halfway through my
editorship with a sub-sub headed alliterative line like “the
quixotically quidnuncial quarterly of the Scotland Island Residents’
Association” or “the roguishly riparian report.” I found my
readers were wondering amusedly what bizarre piece of alliteration was
coming in the next issue!
Right from the start I was determined to make the occasional
publication as folksy and personal as possible as well as an
Association news-sheet. I felt it would help to build a sense of
community and personalise the place when one side of the island did not
see or know much about the other side. New babies, new arrivals,
new services, all the special information to make the escape from
suburbia entertaining without being intrusive. Later I began a
series of interviews uncovering the wide-ranging experience and careers
of residents under the heading of “The people we know”. When it
was felt necessary we included editorials urging action or
improvement. Problems at Church Point were a continuous news
source. They still are.
The introduction of advertising had to come. So much began to
happen as the population grew and the need to know kept growing.
Eventually the print run passed 300. Issues now ran to eight
pages. Collation was quite a job for my helpful family.
For many years I had handled the distribution alone most of the time
with occasional help from my wife. Every issue was delivered into
the hand or, at least, to the door. On one very warm day at the
end of my run I debated whether I would climb a steep track to the last
house or not. Finally, when I staggered around the back there on
the mat was a copy delivered by my wife from the top of the
island! On hot days this could also be a serious hazard as
generous and sociable islanders would offer a cooling but usually
alcoholic drink. After several collisions with trees as a result,
I was compelled to decline after that.
There were other hazards. I was bitten by dogs eight times, on
one occasion twice by the same dog. First it bit my calf at the
front door of the house. Then, when I found its owner at the
back,, it ran through the house and bit me again.
Then came the remarkable improvement with offset printing and fist use
of computers. The convenience of instant correction to “typos”
made all the messing about with obliterations unnecessary. Once,
while the dear old ferry, the Curlew, waited, a major change was
effected right on printing deadline.
It was March, 1995, that the last issue of “SINEWS” appeared,
celebrating 40 years of publication, sharing the anniversary with the
Bush Fire Brigade for the same length of service.
The sterling character Paul Purvis, an expert on computers and now of
Elvina Bay, felt it was timely to embrace the internet and gather
information for all residents of West Pittwater with the introduction
of a more contemporary news service with “Pittwater Offshore
News.” It was immediate. It was fast. And it
was sooo easy to deliver. He even recruited me to write a monthly
historic piece with the quaint title of “History Corner” which ran for
Subsequently he handed over editorship to Julian Muir who has continued
to do a remarkable and dedicated job. I am sure he would agree
that it can be hard work but it leaves you with a good feeling.
From SINEWS October 7,
We watched the beaut big
We saw the tongues of flame
Engulf the crackling grasses
To make the firebug tame,
And then when menace ended
With the strain that it imposes
The firemen raised their tinnies
Then aimed their little hoses ……….

FREE FOR SCHOOL STUDENTS
I am a local preschool teacher and for the past year, I have been
working with local children’s book illustrator, Nettie Lodge from
Scotland Island, on a book series that aims to change children’s
perceptions about fruit and veg.
I will be launching this exciting book series on Friday and I thought
the offshore community might like to know about this, since it was
their children who were used in the book!
The Kindy Kitchen series uses rhymes and recipes to spark a child's
imagination and create a positive association with healthy eating.
From Friday the 1st November parents can purchase the first book,
entitled The Watermelon Cupcake,
as a PDF or hard copy to enjoy with their kids at home.
There will be a total of 10 books released over a period of 5 months,
each featuring different fruit and vegetable characters.

Loves Food and Hates Waste
To celebrate National Recycling Week, 2011 Masterchef contestant Jay
Huxley will be cooking up a storm at the Beaches Market at Warriewood
on Friday 15 November.
Jay will be highlighting how you can use all of those leftovers that
you find in your fridge by turning them into tempting meals.
Pittwater Council’s Education Officer Emma Mackay said food waste is a
huge problem with an estimated 800,000 tonnes of food thrown away by
NSW households each year – that is 315 kilograms of food waste for each
household going to landfill or 38 per cent of your kerbside garbage bin!
“Not only is this a huge waste of money but also a waste of the
resources used to make and grow the food,” said Ms Mackay.
“Jay Huxley is a big supporter of the Love Food Hate Waste program and
is passionate about showing people that with careful menu planning,
shopping to a list and storing food correctly, people can cut down on
their waste and save money,” added Ms Mackay.
Love Food Hate Waste’s top five tips are:
From car salesman to Masterchef Australia contestant in 2011, Jay
Huxley is now a chef running his own restaurant known as HUX Dining
located in Roseville.
- Plan your weekly meals to save time and money
- Write a shopping list and check the fridge and
cupboard before you go
- Measure serving sizes
- Store your food correctly - airtight containers help
keep food fresher for longer
- Use your leftovers for an easy weeknight meal or work
Jay has always had a love for food and since the show Jay has pursued a
career in food, including public cooking demonstrations, private dinner
parties along with setting up his restaurant.
Jay will be at the Beaches Market on Friday 15 November from 8am to 1pm
and will be available during that time to answer any questions you may
The Beaches Market is located at Pittwater Rugby Park, 1472 Pittwater

Shares long-awaited Autobiography
Mona Vale Library will
present an author talk with Australian surfing legend Tom Carroll on
Monday 4 November at 6.30pm.
TC is Tom Carroll’s long-awaited autobiography, co-written with his
brother Nick, and explores the man who on the surface was a dreamer,
cheeky grommet, brilliant surfer, Australian sporting hero, fitness
fanatic, businessman, family man and big wave charger.
Carroll speaks frankly about his drug addiction, a partial legacy of
the footloose surf culture he'd done so much to legitimise.
Tom's family and friends struggled with him, kept his secrets, and
looked on in anger and fear as his addiction began to grind him down.
Then a window opened – but getting through it made charging the
Pipeline look like a piece of cake!
This is the story of an unlikely moral education of humility, family,
damage, brotherhood, youth, stupidity, glory, single-mindedness and
surrender, and about the feeling of water moving under a surfboard, how
it can bind past to present and make sense of lives.
Tom Carroll grew up in Newport and is a former professional surfer. He
won the Australian Junior Title in 1978, the Pro Juniors in 1977 and
1980, the 1983 and 1984 ASP World Tour, and the 1987 Pipe Masters.
Tom became the first surfing millionaire after signing a contract with
Quiksilver in 1989.
Bookings are essential; to
book phone 9970 1600. Following the talk there will be book signings
and light refreshments. Admission is $8 adult, $6 concession, free
admission for students.
Mona Vale Library is located at 1 Park Street, Mona Vale.

Pittwater’s dog owners are
invited to a free workshop on training and behavioural issues.
With barking one of the top five noise complaints in the local area,
environmental education officer Emma MacKay said the free workshop
would be invaluable to owners whose dogs needed a helping hand with
their behaviour or some training tips.
Ms Mackay said that residents should be able to identify whether their
dog has behavioural issues if they are barking, digging, chewing,
escaping or just generally being destructive or aggressive.
“Animal behavioural expert Dr Joanne Righetti who’ll be presenting the
talk has lots of advice on how to create a better behaved dog,” she
Topics on the night will include behavioural problems such as barking,
aggression and separation anxiety, along with advice on socially
responsible pet ownership and the importance of training.
“The session also offers participants the chance to provide questions
in advance of the workshop about their specific concerns,” said Ms
“Dr Righetti will then be able to respond to those issues on the
night,” she said.
Dr Joanne Righetti is an animal behaviourist with a BSc (Hons) in
Zoology (University of Glasgow) and a PhD UNSW (Australia), she is also
a qualified counsellor. Joanne is anHonorary Associate of the Faculty
of Veterinary Sciences, University of Sydney and a previous Director
and Vice President of the NSW Animal Welfare League.
For the past 12 years Dr Righetti has been operating ‘Pet Problems
Solved’, which is based in Sydney. She consults to pet owners and
animal professionals such as vets, council rangers and shelter workers.
She also regularly appears in the media discussing pet issues and the
human animal relationship.
The free workshop is on Wednesday 13
November at Newport Community Centre between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.
The centre is located at The Boulevarde Newport.
Places are limited so please phone 9970 1194 to book your place.
Please note also that the workshop is for dog-owners only and not pets.

Beach Near Halls Wharf
Some time ago the WPCA sought to clarify the status of the small area
of beach adjacent to Halls Wharf. Pittwater Council earlier this year
sent the following letter:
Unfortunately, since the erection of these signs there have now been
incidents of vandalism, with Council replacing them.
We do not like to see resources wasted in this way and ask that
community members be alert to any signs of vandalism or suspicious
behaviour and report these to Broken Bay Police who have also been
alerted to the disappearance of the signs.
