We had a fantastic turnout at the AGM, with over 50 SIRA and community
members attending! Thank you to all those who came along and to those
who joined us afterwards for the barbecue in Catherine Park. Your
contribution to the conversations and discussions at the meeting is
very much appreciated as it helps SIRA to remain connected to the
community we seek to support and represent.
Thank you very much to Bill Gye, who chaired the motions and elections
parts of the meeting.
And also to Rosemary Haskell and Ross Hardy who organised the barbecue.

Join a Community
Did you know that the SIRA Committee protects the interests of island
residents and drives positive change? SIRA is a voluntary community
residents’ association and depends heavily on the support and work of
its sub-committees to get things done.
The sub-committees are the forums in which most ideas, subjects of
interest and issues we face are discussed in an informal setting.
Meetings usually take place at a member's residence.
The SIRA committee depends on the sub-committees for expertise-sharing,
advice and input in its quest to form policy and make decisions on
behalf of the community. We have a great group of people already
involved but it's never enough. The more people involved, the better we
will be able to deliver.
if you are passionate about a certain subject or if you think you can
offer your knowledge, skills or your input and ideas to help us move
What does this
mean? As a member of a sub-committee you will be required
to be a member of SIRA and to join meetings every 4-6 weeks.
Below are the current sub-committees:
- Church Point
- Community Engagement and Communications
- Finance and Insurance
