Song of the Cafe

When breeze makes whitecaps on water, gold spring in growing leaves,
Idle chatter and children play, sun dapples park and trees.
When children play, pontoon and boats, tease with gentle jest.
Come back to me! Linger here! And say my cafe is

Opening a Huge
The rain clouds parted and the crowds rolled
The came in their
tinnies and they came by ferry, they walked from great distances and
some even managed to find a car park. All there for a common goal to
support our community.
All of the
above but much much more.

- a particular area or place considered together
with its inhabitants
- a feeling of fellowship with others, as a
result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals :
• [in sing. ] a similarity or identity : artists who shared a community
• joint ownership or liability : a commitment to the community of goods.
- a group of interdependent organisms of
different species growing or living together in a specified habitat :

Pittwater Council has given the thumbs-up to a new ‘twilight market’ at
Mona Vale’s Village
Council voted at its meeting this week to approve a market to be held
once a month during February, March, April, September, October and
December each year.
Each market would trade between 5pm and 9pm on a Friday evening.
Mayor Harvey Rose said the new market would begin in February next year.
“We anticipate that as with the Palm Beach Market, up to 100
stall-holders will take part,” he said.
Rose said that the twilight market would offer food, drinks and
entertainment, with the Inch café at Park Street also participating.
the markets are on we will lift the current alcohol-free restrictions
in Village Park to allow people to have a drink with dinner while they
enjoy the live entertainment and market atmosphere,” he said.
Rose said the Council was supporting the event as part of its pledge to
increase family-friendly entertainment options and business activity in
“The local business community are also in favour of
the markets because they have observed how they can generate visitors
and trade for local businesses as well as stall-holders,” he said.
For more details about the twilight markets and becoming a
stall-holder, contact Nikki Griffith on 9970 1355.

SCOTLAND ISLAND PLANS GO ON
Council has commissioned a report comprising a three-part plan into the
long-term needs for roads and other infrastructure on Scotland Island.
The Scotland Island Residents Association (SIRA) and Sydney Water were
consulted for some months before the plan was prepared.
The report examines the feasibility and preliminary costing for
construction of sealed roads and drainage across the island.
around 1000 residents live all-year-round on Scotland Island. Transport
is largely confined to small boats to and from the mainland and there
are only a few privately owned vehicles on the island. The island’s
inhabitants depend on septic tanks for their sewage disposal.
three-part plan – the Scotland Island Road Reserve Management Strategy,
the Scotland Island Stormwater Management Strategy and the Scotland
Island Road Reserve and Drainage Implementation Plan - is on exhibition
for comment between 4 December and 4 March 2011.
Jacqueline Townsend said the Council would spend some months discussing
the island’s future infrastructure needs with offshore residents.
However, she cautioned that major work on drainage and roads may be
hamstrung by a lack of funding.
the federal government’s stimulus package ended, there has been no
major grant funding programs made available for infrastructure, so the
Council may need to look elsewhere to find the funding" she said.
Townsend added that Sydney Water have also extended their timeframe for
construction of a sewer network on the island by another 10 years to
“A sewer system was originally promised this year," Cr Townsend said.
The plans can be viewed at the Council’s customer service centres at
Avalon and Mona Vale or at www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
19th October 2010 I received a parking fine of $430, for parking in the
newly relocated parking zone for disabled people at Church Point
parking area. I requested consideration to the RTA and received a
notification of rejection from the Office of State Revenue. My
application was on the basis of changes being recently made to the
parking area, and that I arrived late at night when it was very
difficult to see the new signs.
Has any one of you had the same
problem? I might need to take this matter to court; so, does anyone
know exactly when the changes were made to the signs for the disabled
Does anyone know any other way I might go about trying to annul this
Hope to hear from someone, on 99994885, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
