Road Subsidence Alert - Florence Terrace 
Subsidence has occurred on Florence Terrace, just past Eastern Wharf steps and poses potential danger to vehicular traffic and pedestrians.


The SIRFB, Community Vehicle drivers, contractors and residents who access their homes via this section of road have been advised.  A resident has put a couple of milk crates and a white hessian bag on the roadway.

Council has been advised and a request made for them to investigate the extent of the subsidence as soon as possible.


The Church Point Ferry Service is proud to announce that with your help we have removed 40 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

To celebrate we will be giving away 40 spotted gum saplings to the first 40  passengers on national Tree day, Sunday the 31st of July. That is one tree for every tonne of carbon dioxide removed.

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.
  • Value natives on your block and maintain a diverse community
  • Save your natural soil profile, it contains dormant seeds that can regenerate naturally
  • Let natural mulch reduce erosion and retain moisture
  • Encourage regeneration on your block - is there room for a Spotted Gum or two?
  • Identify, control and remove weeds
  • Plant local natives associated with Spotted Gum Forest
  • Limit the use of fertiliser - it encourages weeds.
For more information go to Pittwater Council Website.
With thanks to our partners Pangolin Associates.

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.


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.
Camilla, Cliff, Lulubelle and Miles
