Night at the next
Fire Shed Dinner

Could my fellow Island golf buggy and light vehicle owners come
Saturday around 2pm
for a group photo shoot below the SI Bushfire HQ? The reason is that
three of us from the SIRA committee are to meet on Monday with Ben
Taylor, Deputy General Manager of Northern Beaches Council and staff to
discuss among other things progress, if any, of discussions with RMS on
conditional licensing of buggies and their management according to the
Island Traffic Plan. The feeling is it’s an issue which we need to push
The photo is my idea of giving a face to the diverse group who have
embraced a buggy as an environmentally friendly, mode of transport for
Seniors, the less mobile, mums with young children, and the pack-horses
and trolley pushers who have found these sturdy little vehicles ideally
suited for our roads of varying steepness and unstable surfaces.
Also they are a far more island-friendly vehicle than cars.
Looking forward to seeing as many of you who can make it, buggies
Jane Rich, Natalie Phillips and other supporters
On a recent visit to the city my 10 year old daughter Lauren was
saddened by all the homeless people she saw. When we returned she
announced that she was going to do something to help them and decided
on a pop up café at Catherine park.
After a bit of researching she decided to donate the money to the
Exodus Foundation. The Exodus Foundation support by offering food
services, access to GP's, counselling and dentists services, providing
legal services and art, music and sport activity groups.

Construction Update -
Church Point Upgrade
Our contractor, Ward Civil, is continuing with the construction of the
new roadway and car park at Church Point.
The new boardwalk and road realignment will be opened to the public on
Monday 4 September, 2017. It is important to note that a 40km/hr
road work speed limit will be in place until the Car Park and final
road works are completed early in 2018.
The new road alignment and temporary work zone set up for the next
stage of works will result in reduced access to the Cargo Wharf for
large trucks and no access for semi- trailers.
Users of the Cargo Wharf are also reminded of the following existing
load restrictions on the Cargo Wharf:
Further works in the area will continue from September to December 2017:
- Maximum Vehicle Load of 8 tonne axle load
- No vehicle access permitted to the east half of the
- Maximum Uniform Superimposed Load (Bulk Storage) of
0.5 tonnes per square metre
We thank the local community for their patience and understanding
whilst we carry out these important and vitally needed improvements.
- Carpark foundations
- Service relocations for electricity and

breaks. Etienne Klevaone samples dusty old Jazz, Philli Soul, Latin and
early French soundtracks and mixes them with voice and organic
Muma Megs' soulful voice rides the tracks with harmonies straight off
the soundtrack to a Spaghetti Western film, adding to the cinematic
experience that is The Dark Horse.
