Tinny Found
After the big tides last week we had a tinny wash up against our jetty.

The kids have tied it onto a mooring on the South Side, between Carols and Bells, in front of 21 Richard Rd.

It’s got a yellowy inside and has a number like AEN942N painted on the inside.

Local Council Notices

Warringah and Pittwater Councils, Warringah Chamber of Commerce & Industry Inc, Pittwater Business Ltd and Sydney Business are hosting a free information seminar for small business operators.

The session is part of NSW Industry & Investment’s MicroBiz Week 2010 (31 May – 4 June), a week which recognises the contribution of micro businesses to the State's economy.

A micro business is classified as one that employs four people or less and is usually run from home or shared offices, or is mobile.

The micro business sector is the one of the fastest growing in the NSW economy, making up 88% of the state’s small businesses. Within the SHOROC region home working has been found to be over 50% higher than the Sydney average.

The seminar - ‘Creative Thinking: The Microbiz Edge for Profit and Productivity’ – will be packed with practical tips on how to better plan work, increase productivity and regain work-life balance.

Regional Economic Development Coordinator for Warringah & Pittwater Councils’ Paul William-Smith said the growth in micro business in recent years can be linked to trends towards more flexible lifestyles, high level of professional skills in the region and rising attraction of telecommuting.

“Working from home can bring enormous social and environmental benefits which are important to families in Warringah and Pittwater,” Paul said.

“I encourage all micro business owners to come along to the seminar which is the first of a series of free business seminars to be held over 2010. This is also a great opportunity to network with a wide cross – section of other business owners.

The seminar will be hosted by Joanna Maxwell founder of WorkInColour, which helps people and  businesses use creative thinking skills.
