Pink Water Taxis - After Midnight
To comply with Occupational Health & Safety, including the NSW
Maritime regulation of watch-keeping hours for the Masters of
commercial passenger vessels, the provision of service by the Pink
Water Taxis is amended as follows:
Water Taxi phone will be switched off between midnight and 0600hrs.
Trips between midnight and 0600hrs must
be booked prior to 2300hrs
on the night in question. A booking is for a definite time;
nebulous or open-ended timings will not be accepted. If
appropriate, the operator may provide the passenger making the booking
with an alternate mobile phone number to ring when they arrive at their
pick-up point. The alternate number provided will be for
‘one-off’ use and will change from night to night.
The following offshore residents will necessarily be provided with an
emergency phone number: Rural Fire Service watch-keepers on Scotland
Island, Elvina Bay and Great Mackerel Beach, Broken Bay Water Police,
other emergency services workers on call (police, fire, medical),
pregnant ladies (The Pudding Club) and shift-workers known to regularly
return from work in the silent hours.
Residents needing medical evacuation in the silent hours should contact
the Scotland Island Rural Fire Service in the first instance.
SIRFS will determine the appropriate chain of evacuation and the Pink
Water Taxis will provide water transport as directed.

The West Pittwater Rural Fire Brigade crew on Saturday found evidence of someone lighting
small fires using matches
in the National Park on the North side of Lovett Bay.
Investigations at this stage believe it to be children playing with
matches (Woolworths brand left at scene) The authorities have
been notified and have expressed their concern that we may have an
arsonist (even an unintentional one) who could set the whole of the
National Park alight given the right conditions.
We are asking parents to keep matches and lighters out of the way from
children, and to let their children and teenagers know the consequences
of what could and will happen if they play with fire and it gets out of
control. We also would like people (parents and children) to
us know if they see anyone lighting fires or anyone playing with
matches either in the National Park or on private land.
The devastation and destruction of the Victorian Fires are still fresh
in everyone's memory. We do not want Lovett, Morning and
Bays to be the Ash Saturday of Sydney. We are heading for
possibly the worst fire season since 1994 and would like to be "FIRE
FREE" until winter.
The penalties for arson are now jail terms combined with very hefty
fines. And if someone is found lighting a fire in the
Park, the Rural Fire Service and the Police will prosecute to the full
extent of the law.

Studios Wrap up

Studio Rouge in Lovett Bay, represented the following artists Rouge,
Nettie Lodge, Marion von den Driesschen, Michael Greve, Nick Creech,
Dean Hollander, Michelle Ball, Matt Penfold. Showcasing
sculptural works, photography, ceramics & textiles and film by
Matt Trapnell entertained the visitors by playing his eclectic style of
Chef Kath Anderson together with our volunteers prepared and served
culinary delights on both days.
For our visitors, we presented both a gallery space showcasing the
artists main body of work and Rouge's working studio where artists
could display additional work and portfolios etc
Half of Rouge's studio was used by Kath Anderson, to coordinate the
Cafe with help from our great volunteers, as they had generously
donated a cake or two to be served with a cuppa. While on Sunday, Kath
and her team prepared delicious BBQ treats.
Our visitors came
from far and wide and locally, they were all lovely, happy to come to a
tranquil place, sit & sip their cuppa & view either the
or the spotted gums - really an interesting experience & a
successful one, considering it was our first attempt.
artists, have only just finished celebrating our Watermarks event, by
having a 'thank you' dinner to acknowledge the efforts of our Studio
Rouge volunteers, as we really could not have coped without their
enormous thank you to you for being so kind as to e-mail me the details
pertaining to last weekend’s Watermark Festival. Michael and
most thoroughly enjoyed our day on Sunday starting at Church Point and
first visiting the wonderful home, “Tarrangaua”, then visiting Sturdy
Lane Studio, Studio Rouge, right at the top of the headland between
Lovett Bay and Elvina Bay and finally walking to the top of Scotland
Island to discover Elizabeth Park Studio on Thompson. Three
contrasting architectural buildings it would be hard to find, but then
the huge scope of exhibited works was unbelievable.
you believe that chatting over the fence with our next-door neighbour
it transpires they have a home on the same peninsula as Sturdy Lane
Studio and a week or so ago he saw a fellow carving a burl into the
form of a fish. We wonder if it was the fish that had pride
place downstairs at this studio?
kindness there was little chance we would have heard about these
wonderful homes to visit and artwork to admire.
a magnificent day to remember for ever!!! Would such an event
ever be repeated as Sally, our eldest granddaughter, from Tumut, would
just love to have seen the huge array of artworks? And of
we would love to have the pleasure all over again!
best of good wishes to you,

Fun for the Kids
There are still some places available for the October school holiday’s
“Kids on the Coast” program to be held at Pittwater Council’s newly
refurbished Coastal Environment Centre at North Narrabeen.
The program which runs from Tuesday 6 to Friday 16 October offers
primary school aged children a broad range of activities to entertain
and stimulate their young minds.
Pittwater Council’s Natural Environment and Education Manager Mia
Dalby-Ball said the diverse program offers something for everyone and
is run by enthusiastic and experienced educators.
“There is a mix of fun outdoor, craft and cinema activities available
with the focus on learning about the wide variety of plants, animals
and sea creatures that are abundant in Pittwater’s coastal
environment,” said Ms Dalby-Ball.
“We will be holding the popular Junior Fishing Clinic again that
provides an introduction to fishing. Kids receive facts and tips about
fishing as well as some free gear!”
Other activities include “Reptiles Galore” - learning about these
incredible animals; “Fantastic Frogs” - how to look after the many
species of frogs in Pittwater and “Coastal Capers” - an excursion to
Turimetta Beach looking at signs of life and treasures washed up on the
The “Kids on the Coast” program runs every day throughout the school
holidays (though some sessions in the second week are already booked
out). There are two-hour activities available between 10am-12
noon and 1pm-3pm for $20 per child per session. For children
wishing to attend a full day (10am-3pm) the cost is $55, which includes
care between sessions.

Pittwater Councillors elected a new Mayor and Deputy Mayor at its
Council meeting on Monday 21 September.
The meeting saw the election of Cr Harvey Rose as Mayor and Cr
Jacqueline Townsend as Deputy Mayor.
Cr Rose replaces Cr David James who has acted as Mayor for the last two
years with Cr Townsend replacing Cr Patricia Giles who has been Deputy
for the past five years.
As Mayor, Cr Rose’s key role is to act as leader in the community and
spokesperson for the Council.
Cr Rose has lived in Avalon since 1971 and has recently retired from
permanent teaching after 39 years working in the high schools of Manly
Cr Rose describes himself as a passionate member of the community,
dedicated to maintaining and improving the essential character of
Pittwater. He was also the recipient of the Pittwater Citizen of the
Year award for outstanding service to the Pittwater Community in 2005.
General Manager Mark Ferguson said he was looking forward to working
collaboratively with Cr Rose, Cr Townsend and the other Councillors
over the next year.
“I would also like to acknowledge the outstanding contribution from the
former Mayor, Cr David James and Deputy Mayor Cr Patricia Giles for
their term of office.
Mark Ferguson said all the staff are committed to working with the new
Mayor and Councillors to implement the objectives of Pittwater’s
Cr Harvey also thanked Cr David James and Cr Giles for their fine work
over many years. “It is a privilege to be elected Mayor of a Council
which has a strong tradition of constructive work for our
“I undertake to work hard to keep Pittwater one of the best places in
the world to live in,” added Cr Rose.
Harvey Rose and Jacqueline Townsend will work with familiar faces on
the Council which were elected by Pittwater residents at elections in
September 2008. These include Northern Ward of Pittwater, Bob Grace and
Peter Hock, Central Ward, Bob Dunbar, Patricia Giles and Ian White, and
for Southern Ward David James and Julie Hegarty.

Opposes Council Amalgamations
Pittwater Council has voted to oppose any moves towards amalgamation of
councils on the northern beaches.
Councillors at the 7 September meeting were unanimous in their support
of a motion that resists amalgamation, but backs moves for Pittwater to
continue to work cooperatively with neighbouring councils.
Mayor David James said that the Council motion followed recent comments
in the media that explored the possibility of merging Manly, Warringah
and Pittwater into one ‘super council’.
“There is a view held by some in the community that amalgamation offers
greater efficiencies for ratepayers,” said Cr James.
“However my fellow councillors and I believe that Pittwater has shown
we can work effectively with other Councils and maintain efficient
service levels to our own community.”
“A recent example of this is our partnership with Warringah, Manly and
Mosman Councils to corporatise the Kimbriki Waste Facility at Terrey
Hills,” Cr James said.
“This will generate new sources of income for local Councils
through alternative waste technologies and commercial activities at the
Cr James said that differing priorities between local communities meant
that the case for amalgamation was not a strong one on the northern
“I believe that residents of Pittwater value their Council giving
particular attention to the area’s unique environmental issues,” he
“We also have to manage an influx of new residents over the next ten
years in the Warriewood land release area, unlike Manly Council for
Cr James said that Pittwater would continue to work with its northern
beaches neighbours through the SHOROC organisation, which is a regional
group set up by Mosman, Manly, Warringah and Pittwater Councils to look
at sharing arrangements and cost efficiencies such as bulk purchasing.

State Award for Disaster Planning
Pittwater Council has won a NSW Government award for its disaster
In one of his first duties as new Mayor, Cr Harvey Rose accepted the
award at a presentation at Parliament House in Sydney this week by the
Emergency Services Minister Steve Whan.
Pittwater received a ‘highly commended’ award in the 2009 Safer
Communities Awards for its disaster management plan which was revised
by the Council in August this year.
The Safer Communities Awards are sponsored by the state government and
recognise ‘outstanding practice and innovation by organisations
involved in emergency management and protecting the community.’
Out of 13 recipients, Pittwater and the Hills District were the only
local government areas recognised in this year’s awards. Other
recipients included Surf Life Saving Australia, the NSW Police, the
Australian Red Cross and the University of NSW.
Pittwater’s highly commended award was for its revised disaster
management plan, which would ‘enable an effective response to disaster
and emergencies’, according to the award citation.
General Manager Mark Ferguson said the plan had been revised this year
in the light of the bushfire disaster in Victoria in January and to
ensure that a coordinated response would be put into action in the
event of any large-scale emergency in Pittwater.
“We have a number of naturally occurring hazards such as landslip,
bushfire and flooding and this is the reason for prioritising our
disaster planning,” he said.
Speaking after receiving the award, Mayor Rose said while he was
honoured that Pittwater had received recognition for its disaster
planning, he hoped it was one plan the Council never had to enact.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to remind residents that with summer
approaching, it’s time to ensure your properties are ready to withstand
the threat of bushfire.”

Get Car Share Update
$50 offer for
After a year of Go Get car share at Church Point we have 31 drivers, in
Four have sold cars, one more intends to sell one, and at least 5 have
deferred buying another car. That’s a significant contribution to
reducing the pressure on the car park and the overflow into surrounding
Many members use car share as their ‘second car’.
“We gave our 20 year old gas-guzzler four wheel drive the flick. With
car sharing, people have got to get over the shock of thinking ‘this
trip might cost me $30’. But if you add it up over a year, our old
second car was probably costing us about $150 a week, especially with
the maintenance. We haven’t needed to use Go Get much, so we’re on the
lowest membership plan. But it’s good to know it’s there if we need
“We’ve sold our second car and having Go Get at Church Point means
there hasn’t been any inconvenience at all.”
Bay: “A two-hour trip into Mona Vale costs me about $12. We’re on the
highest membership plan and the car is nearly always available when I
need it, and if not, I juggle my schedule. I’ve never even had to fill
it with petrol. (You have to fill it only if it’s less than ¼ full –
and Go Get pays for petrol). All up for the year Go Get has cost me
$731—that’s less than our insurance and CTP green slip on our own car
(total $787), let alone rego, maintenance, petrol…It’s miles cheaper
and easier than owning a second car. ”
Of the 25 current households, 21 have been members for more than 6
It hasn’t worked for everyone, of course, and 7 households have tried
it during the year and resigned or not renewed their membership.
With only one Go Get car at Church Point, it can be frustrating if it’s
booked out when you want to use it. (Members should let Go Get know any
time that happens so they know the full demand). Once we get a second
Go Get car back here, and hopefully more over time, we’re confident the
service will be much more flexible. We’re apparently close to that
threshold, and we want to encourage more usage so we achieve it.
You can try the Go Starter plan with no upfront deposit if you want to
see if it works for you. At the Church Point ferry and commuter wharves
there are postcards with a $50 driving credit offer for new members, so
grab one while they last and give it a try.
There have been occasional problems with people parking in the
designated Go Get spot in the car park, especially late at night, and
we’re working on ways to stop this. We ask locals to respect the
dedicated spot and never park there. Go Get really DOES help reduce the
pressure on the car park by giving people a viable option to keeping a
car (or buying another one) which is seldom used.
