Living in Spotted Gum Forest
Scotland Island and the western foreshores of Pittwater are spotted gum
forest, which is an endangered Ecological Community. In view of the
small size of existing remnants, the Pittwater Spotted Gum Forest is
likely to become extinct.

Small row boat drifting somewhere!
In the night of Monday 18 July, my children's beloved small row boat
called Bim Bim went adrift with high tide. The
rolex and oars were left in the boat as well.
Has anybody seen it passing by?
Please call Anne on 9999 4002 if you have any information.
A BIG THANKS!
Lulubelle and family would like to thank Scotland Island’s excellent
‘First Response Team’, especially Ian White and Wayne Gluyas, who
looked after Lulubelle and helped to get her to hospital after an awful
fall and unconsciousness last Monday.
Our Thank You also extends to the rest of the wonderful Paramedic Team
and the lovely Water Police (sorry, can’t remember all your names) who
were all so helpful, kind and calm at this for us very stressful time.
Lulubelle is home and recovering well, and we are so very grateful for
your help and support.
