Notice to Tennis Wharf Users

The Tennis Users Group is pleased to announce that installation of the new, larger pontoon is scheduled to commence on Monday 25th September.

The existing pontoon will not be accessible from that date and the replacement pontoon will not be ready for use for at least two days after.

Boat owners will need to make other arrangements for that period. Options include:

  • Park your boat in the shallow near the sea wall, which should be finalised by then
  • Tie up at Commuter Wharf at Church Point
  • Make a temporary arrangement with a private jetty owner
  • Use the ferry for commuting
Any offers from private jetty owners for that short period would be greatly appreciated.

We apologise for this inconvenience but it is unavoidable if we are to have the new pontoon.

Tennis Users Group.

Letter to the Editor
Additional Carparking at Church Point

I put on record that I am in agreement with David Wardman. To insert into our beautiful landscape  another vulgar and ugly repository  for the convenience of one of the most environmentally damaging inventions of the last 200 years is yet another act of vandalism.

I make 2 further points.
  1. I am unsure why NOT building the car park should cost the offshore residents more. Surely it should be the other way round. Not building it will save money.
  2. A few people that I know already avoid the current fee by parking "up the hill" and wherever else they can find, even if it means a fair walk. Good for your health and the environment I say. Increasing the fee, for whatever reasons (and council will always find a reason to increase revenue), is merely ensuring
more people will do the same so that in the end  Council lose  revenue.
