a mad-cap, pants-dropping, cross-dressing mayhem of a crazy two hours on the Island. Some boisterous language, lots of laughs, rudeness about some Islanders, - some would say a typical Bob Bolton effort.

Update on Church Point Construction Works

Dear Scotland Island Residents,

As stage one of the Church Point Upgrade is about to start, we ask that you kindly share this update with your members.

Between July 2016 and April 2017, we will undertake reclamation works and build a new sea wall, main road and walkway.

Work to date

Over the past few months we have worked with our contractor, Ward Civil and Environmental Engineering, to prepare for the construction and finalise designs. Work is also underway to approve details of the construction design and to develop aesthetics features, which is being done collaboratively with community representatives through an Aesthetics Advisory Committee.  

Works are almost complete on the construction of a temporary wharf that will offset commuter boat tie-ups during stage one and stage two works.

What’s next?

We expect to begin setting up the construction site towards the end of July although this is subject to final authority approvals. Initially this will include the contractor offices, environmental controls and temporary services. Related pedestrian, boating and traffic arrangements will also be made at this stage.

Refer to the attached map or our website to view the location map, which highlights various aspects of the site.

We will make every endeavour to minimise inconvenience during construction and keep you up to date along the way. More details will be shared on our website and via community updates. You are also welcome to make contact with me any time.

Thank you for your patience while we prepare for construction.

“Pittwater Now”  Creative Workshop

Sunday July 31st  2:00

Community Hall

Do you have an idea?  Do you just have the germ of an idea?  Do you fancy being in the Comedy Night, but not sure how to progress it?  This workshop is for you!
Do you have a fully fledged, completely worked out, totally scripted, gut-wrenchingly funny idea, and the Comedy Night would be sad and dry without it?  Yes, come along to the workshop!
Do you just want to act in the Comedy Night, but not necessarily write material?  Yes, you guessed it!  Come along to the workshop!
This is to fit the framework to the evening, so come along if you want to contribute.  We can organise creative sessions to help finish off work if required.
