Update on NBN connection to the house

This week NBN installers will be bringing over equipment to commence installations to the home next week commencing Monday 15th.

Please refer to the NBN installation notice sent out to all residents explaining everything.

All houses will be connected on the island over the next few weeks street by street and we will keep you updated week by week where they are working.

Residents who have registered with their provider for an NBN plan  will be the houses on the street that are connected first.

It is important to let them get on with the job once they start so please only help when you are asked to by the installers.

Once you are connected make sure you you inform your provider and get a date from them when to come and complete connection in your home.

Thank you.

Please join the conversation

(Letter reproduced from Voices of Mackeller) - Mackellar Matters -

I am writing to invite the members of Scotland Island Residents Assoc (SIRA) to participate in a ground-breaking community project – Voices of Mackellar – designed to document the values, views and concerns of people living in the Mackellar electorate.

Voices of Mackellar was formed in August 2020 by a group of local residents who believe in the value of community involvement to create a strong, healthy democracy. Inspired by Voices of Warringah, we wish to take the pulse of the Northern Beaches community by asking members of associations such as yours to raise their issues and concerns with us at our Kitchen Table Conversations (KTCs).

You can find more information about KTCs here.

The information gathered at our KTCs will be included in the Mackellar Matters Report that will be publicly available in mid 2021. This report will be presented to local candidates standing in Mackellar at the next federal election, and the candidates will be asked to comment on its findings, with their responses made public.

Earlier this week we had the opportunity to present to the Avalon Beach Ladies Probus Club and below is a testimonial from their President:

"Leonie and her team led a Q and A meeting at our club recently. It was well run and provided much interesting information and participation. I highly recommend their organisation and urge you call them onboard."

Eunice Raymond, President
Avalon Beach Ladies Probus Club

I look forward to hearing from your association at your earliest convenience. I am also happy to discuss this with you in more detail if you would like to call me on the number below.

Yours sincerely,
Leonie Scarlett

Jammin' the Bays

Lovett Bay - 3 to 7pm - Saturday March 20

A four band jam that sways and stomps across rock, blues, folk, swamp and country. It's a musical degustation, Bays-style.
A community event for residents, family and friends of the Bays.

Four great acts lined up over four relaxed hours on the lawn at the Lovett Bay Amphitheater:

The Gentlys - Sky Juice - Don't Tell Mama - Louise & Stonehurst

Can we make it three times lucky? Our last two concerts on the water have enjoyed great weather with more than 120+ grinning guests at each one. This time we are moving onshore offshore - Covid permitting - to the Lovett Bay Amphitheater. 

More information will become available soon, with a link to book your tickets. Stay tuned, but for now - save the date!
