assist vehicle owners with registering their vehicles, in 1995, SIRA
negotiated and obtained permission approval from the RMS for the Fire
Station to become a registered inspection station. Pink slips
issued annually and are valid until the registration date within the
year. Warriewood RMS is aware of this arrangement and will
renewals with these pink slips.
SIRA supports the registration
of all motor vehicles on Scotland Island. Residents with
unregistered vehicles in use are putting the community at risk through
the lack of third party liability cover. Should an accident
occur that results in injury to the driver, passengers or pedestrians,
it would devastate our community.
Please be responsible and
make your vehicles available for registration. If your vehicle does not
pass registration or you are currently the user of an unregistered
vehicle, SIRA recommends that it be removed from the Island.

Letter to the Editor...
you to all involved
On 15 May, Bev felt ill and was having some difficulty
set out for Mona Vale Hospital on the ferry but duirng the brief trip
Bev became much worse and by the time the ferry was docked at Church
Point she was unable to move without severe pain. A large number of
passengers, many visitors to our neck of the woods, stopped to render
assistance and comfort her. Someone called the Water Police who
attended and gave her oxygen while we waited for the ambulance. There
were a number of young women we believe may have been staying at the
Youth Hostel who were extremely caring and Mary Romeo and staff
provided cushions and blankets as Bev was feeling very cold.
She was treated by paramedics and taken to Mona Vale Hospital,
subsequently being transferred to the Royal North Shore where she was
kept in the ICU until being discharged last Friday (10 June). We were
met by Graham, driving the Community vehicle, who drove us home. Apart
from that Bev received many good wishes from all who were aware of her
I would like to thank all involved, too many to name individually, and
a number who stopped, assisted and disappeared, to remain anonymous but
who contributed what assistance they could.
