PITTWATER SPREADS CHRISTMAS CHEER
Enliven Pittwater is spreading the Christmas cheer with some festive
fun throughout our village centres.
A charming Christmas ‘yarn bombing’ attack has occurred at Park Street,
Mona Vale courtesy of the Woolly Wednesday knitting group from the
Council’s Social, Community & Economic Coordinator Melinda Hewitt
said the knitting group have embraced Council’s program to enliven
Pittwater by producing ‘knit graffitti’ as part of their plan to bring
people together through the art of knitting and crocheting.
Newport is playing host to a ‘Very Christo Christmas’ with a quirky art
installation at the community centre.
Ms Hewitt said the homage to the artist Christo would come in the shape
of some large ‘Christmas gifts’ for the community to enjoy in the
sculpture garden of the centre.
“Residents will also see the attractive Enliven Pittwater flags that
are adding some festive cheer along Barrenjoey Road, Newport,” she said.
Avalon, Mona Vale and Newport Chambers of Commerce along with Enliven
Pittwater are also supporting special Christmas window displays for
shops throughout the villages.
“We are encouraging residents to get on board, by spotting their
favourite window display and tagging it #enlivenPittwater,” said Ms
“Also expect to hear singers and musicians performing your favourite
carols, along with some festive coloured lights that will pop up around
Ms Hewitt said the best way of keeping up-to-date on events throughout
Pittwater is to download the free Enliven Pittwater app, available from
the App Store and Google Play,

I lost my phone near Bells
on Sunday night (8 December 2013).
I have had a notification from "Find my iPhone" application that "a
sound was played on Rachel's iPhone at 5:34pm on December 9, 2013 near
Scotland Island 85 Richard Road".
The app has only just located it about 30 minutes ago (So looks like
it's still right next to Bells).
I've put the phone on lost mode.It is now locked with a passcode, but
it will display a message with my sister's number to call.
Please call Olivia (0452 511 794) or Patrick (0416 591 495)
I desperately need a "new"
commuter boat that doesn't leak, if anyone has one for sale?
Mine is on its feeble last legs and hardly makes it across the ditch it
is so full of holes and oysters.
I have a good 15HP motor so I am only looking for a hull that can
happily get to and fro from Carols.
Please call Nettie 0410078754
