Dear Waterfront Access Only Home Owner

At long last we have the serious prospect of having the NSW Government (given that the NSW Liberals/Nationals win) act to remove the jetty tax for WAO home owners - something we have been fighting for over the last 10 + years.Their formal letter, in draft form at present, being sent to the Home Access Association (NSW) Inc talks about Labor choosing to 'exploit the predicament facing WAO residents' with an 'ill conceived, unreasonable and  discriminatory licensing scheme for water access only residents' and stating that 'if elected to Government in March, 'we will work with water access  only residents to resolve this issue by delivering a simpler, fairer and more transparent scheme'.
Shadow Minister for Lands, Greg Pearce will publicly state their policy at a  specially convened meeting at the Mooney Mooney Workers Club on :-
All WAO home owners are invited to attend this meeting which promises to give us success in our 10 year + battle with the Labor government.
It would be great to see a good rollup from Pittwater to support our Hawkesbury friends.
Please ring Paul Purvis (9979 9667) by Friday 25th to ask any questions and confirm that you can attend.

To get to the Mooney Mooney Workers Club:

Some of you might be brave enough to go by boat, but for the rest of us, here are directions.

Address: 5 Kowan Road, Mooney Mooney, phone 02 9985 9244
Directions: Proceed North along the F3, cross the Hawkesbury River Bridge, keep in the left lane, exit at the Mooney Mooney turnoff. Go straight through a roundabout, then turn left, then right. It is well signposted.

I do hope you can attend. Lunch and refreshments are available at the club.

News from the Pittwater Offshore Wine Syndicate                                    

This is going to be a very special tasting. Not just because it is at the Muir's lovely home and not just because the tastings get better and better.

The interesting new option is that we have a couple of special EXTRA wines for you to try, compliments of another vineyard.

We are SOOO popular (and why not, we drink a fair volume) that the rest of the wine world wants to get onboard.

Please remember your GLASS and food to graze upon...

Well Done on Clean Up Day
Just a high and a low note.
