Welcome to 2019
Notification to the
community regarding two Liquor Licence Applications for the Pasadena
There are two
separate application processes underway for additional Liquor
Licences at the Pasadena.
1. Primary Services Application
The first is an Application posted on the Liquor and Gaming
Website on 5th December for a Primary Services Application (PSA). This
application is in addition to
a normal restaurant “On-Premises Licence”. If successful, it will allow the serving of alcohol at the
Pasadena to customers who are not consuming food.
The application includes areas both inside and outside the built area
on land owned by the Pasadena and on land leased from the Crown.
The deadline for you to
make any response is 4th January, 2019. If you have a view on
this application, it is very important that you make a response (see

OR print and mail it to The Board, Liquor and Gaming at GPO Box 2060,
Sydney, NSW, 2001.
Write your own letter to above address (referencing application
2. Packaged Licence
The other application is at the stage of community consultation which
is prior to a full application being submitted. It is for a Packaged Licence (a Bottle Shop) to be located in
the ‘Pantry and Fresh’ grocery store in the Pasadena.
As noted in the recent
Pittwater Offshore Newsletter (PON), it is expected that an event will
be arranged shortly to consult with the community before an actual
application is submitted.
There will thus be a bit more time for consultation on this matter.

Happy Carolling Christmas - Let's
see It again!
To fellow carollers, helpers, supporters and all lovers of Carols
Thank you so much for your fortitude, wet weather tolerance, good
spirits and dedication to the task in hand.
There were moments when we probably all asked ourselves why are we
huddled in a boat shed, in a hail storm, singing a Capella carols to
three men and a dog in the water and some sodden people in the boats.
The answer is because deep down we love doing it! And the performance
at the Point proved it.
And here is your reward - eleven minutes of professionally shot footage
of the Carols at the Point from local filmmaker John Illingsworth who
has captured lots of Pittwater images over the years
John told me he had never seen the Carols before but he loved the show
and will be back next year. He is also preparing a longer version of
the show for us.
A HUGE thank you to our Dear
Leader and Choirmaster Rod who soldiered on in very trying
circumstances and led us all to success, snatching a great victory from
the dripping wet jaws of defeat!
The Carols are now up on Youtube - look for 2018 Carols Afloat - so you
can pass this link to friends near and far.
Thank you again to everyone who has been part of the event over the
past ten years and there is already talk of coming back for the 10th
anniversary next year.
A very happy Pittwater Christmas to you all and all the best for 2019.
