Fire Unit cabinets we have now scheduled a Community Fire Unit Training
Course on Sunday 11th February 2018

The course will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to
prepare and protect your home and assist the Brigade in the event of a
fire. The key things we will cover include:
Fire fighting equipment and operations
- Working safely
- Preparing your property
- Bushfire behaviour
If you would like to complete the course please register using this
Community Fire Unit Training
We had a lot of interest in doing the training and places on the course
are limited so please register asap.
You will also have to apply for membership of the Rural Fire Service
prior to the day of the course. The first step to do this to complete
this online form.
If you have completed a previous CFU training course you can also
register to do it again and refresh your knowledge and skills.

Big Thank You to Church
Point Ferry Service
Not so newly engaged Scotland Island couple, Alec and Cameron, would
like to give a big thanks to Penny and Church Point Ferry Service, for
helping make their engagement party such a wonderful experience.
The outpouring of love on Saturday was gratefully received with a fun
and relaxed time had by all as we chartered the ferry up the Pittwater.
It has been a long and at times arduous path, but the support shown
from the community around us, makes it more sweeter than sour.
A magical day and a generous gift.
Church Point Cafe -
Artists play between 3:30 - 6:30pm
Feb 4: Feel The Manouche :
The Manouche is George Washingmachine’s latest musical adventure and
what a band it is. George is one of the very best fiddle players in
Australia and a great singer and storyteller. Feel The Manouche has a
world music feel though it's use of double bass, guitars, accordion,
fiddle & vocal helps the band achieve a strong melodic groove that
can take on gypsy waltzes, swing jazz & many other flavours of
music from our diverse planet. We invite you to sit back or dance and
'Feel The Manouche.'
But it is within a quieter bare bones approach as a trio that they can
simply relax and remind themselves of all the music that they cherish
from New Orleans, blues and soul from Memphis and Chicago. The band
features Rob Woolf on keyboards and vocals, Carlos Adura on drums and
Rowan Lane on bass and is in my opinion an afternoon not to be missed.
Feb 11: The Fukers :
Fukers are the Freshwater Ukelele Society and these guys rock the house
and have become a Co-Op Club favourite. They blend quirky takes on hit
songs from Dean Martin to The Church to INXS with Hawiian shirts and a
margarita or two. With 5 ukes, double bass, guitar, drums & vocals
they will have you laughing, singing & dancing on tables. Book for
Sun Feb 18: Jeff Lang Solo :

diverse catalogue of over 25 albums.
roots-music musician – Rolling Stone

playing complicated parts but never at the expense of the songs
themselves.” – The Onion
