Hall – new reduced rates for residents’ children’s parties! Plus new
combined information booklet
hall is a great place for kids’ parties, with the kitchen, a big space
for games, and its proximity to the park, and now the rate for
children’s parties for residents has been reduced from $110 to $80.
five documents giving information about the hall – classifications,
rates, terms and conditions, safety and equipment list – are all now in
one more booklet which makes it more convenient to download and read.
These documents, along with the Application to Hire, are
available to download at http://www.scotlandisland.org.au/living/community-services/community-hall.

The Farmhouse, Ventnor
marks the 150th year of the first cottage built offshore.
sometimes referred locally as The Farmhouse, Ventnor and its orchard
features in many early photographs of the area. It was built
1862 by William Oliver who had been farming the peninsular between
Elvina and Lovett Bays since 1842.
William Oliver was also
later granted land at Chapel Point (Church Point) and the gravestones
of Oliver family members can be found there. William's son
Frederick came off his horse coming down from Linda Falls and his
gravestone is close to Sturdee Lane
We are keen to gather as
many memories and facts about Ventnor and the Oliver family as well as
families who have lived or stayed at Ventnor since. Tanya
says her father claims to have sold Ventnor at least six times before
my family bought it in 1990
Finally we are open to ideas from the community for opening Ventnor to
the public in the 2012 spring

Letters to the
Waterfront Store & Cafe

the once icy relations between the community and the proprietors of the
I’ve joined in community activities at the
Gone Fishing Gallery in the Pasadena, sat chatting regularly to friends
over coffee on the terrace, sung Christmas carols to patrons of the
café and enjoyed terrific meals there, like the WOW Christmas lunch.
But events in the store yesterday have left a very nasty taste in my
paying for a second cappuccino and waiting over 20 minutes for it (not
a particularly busy day) I went to find out when it would be ready.
my amazement I was subjected to an interrogation by the proprietor who
then kept me waiting while she analysed all the coffee vouchers before
informing me that no mistake had been made and that clearly I had paid
for no coffee. In short, I am branded as a liar for seeking a
service I had paid for.
What ever happened to customer service?
I will not be using the shop again.
