Warning Dangerous Tree at
Above the steps on Fitzpatrick Reserve on Scotland
island (the steps that lead up from just above Cargo Wharf ) a
very large branch fell last night from the semi-dead massive tree that
is eaten by termites adjacent to our home. The branch is hanging
precariously up in the air above the track and is threatening power
lines. It made a terrible noise last night when it cracked so I think
the whole tree is at risk of collapsing so please everyone walking up
there be careful. I have advised the Council and Ausgrid.
Thanks to Colin and Adriana - 2 Robertson Road
Letters to the Editor...
I would like thank each and everyone of you for joining in the
celebration of Bills life.
I am sure he felt the warmth in the room as I did.
was very sorry to hear Bill passed away, I didn't know he was sick. I
met Bill at a CFU training day 4/5/2014. On that day I was so excited
to be there I took pictures of the occasion, albeit not good ones but I
thought I should share them with you anyway.
remember Bill was one of the first people I met, we sat next to each
other in the truck on our way to a location for training. It struck me
how intelligent, polite, friendly and passionate he was about helping
the community by being a CFU member. He and Penny took on a leadership
roll after that day.
I send my sincerest condolences to his family, the CFU and the island
community. He was a gentlemen with great heart.
Following last weekend’s recent storm we our two identical kayaks were
washed away from our property on the north-western point of Scotland
We found one beached in McCarrs Creek but we have yet to locate the
