Last Tuesday saw alarms raised as Councillor Anthony Mayne drew the communities attention to the land clearing he was witnessing at Broulee Beach Estate The Broulee community gathered on Sunday June 27th at the Broulee Fire Shed opposite the worksite to listen to members of the community and the Broulee Mossy Point Progress Association who were all shocked at what they were witnessing and in despair of the outcome of the clearing.
At the heart of the matter is that the comm
Fortunately for the residents of Broulee there members of the community who have long memories.
Eurobodalla Council had announced that they were going to sell a triangle of land at the entrance to Broulee village advising the community that the land was classified "operational"
and that they could sell the land without any further community consultation. Above: In a frantic push to gain more revenue Council is looking to sell off its many "unused" public reserves across the
Councillor Anthony Mayne has been asked if Council is looking to sell off a heavily treed area of four blocks of land once managed by Landcare Australia in #broulee being the corner block of Broulee Rd and Clarke St. Clr Mayne says "I hope not! Then again, I think Coopers Island Road also should not be sold off. Nor should community blocks at Pretty Point or South Durras. "I might be in the minority here - but I generally disagree with selling off community assets, which
Sunshine, soil, seeds and lots of smiles…what could be more fun!? Broulee Public School students are among the latest to join in with Landcare activities held throughout Eurobodalla. The school’s ‘green team’ has been learning about growing their own food, making hotels for native bees, and the importance of looking after native plants every fortnight with Eurobodalla Landcare coordinator Emma Patyus. Ms Patyus said the Landcare movement first came into existence in Australia
This evening we had 40 starters and of those we had visitors from Melbourne and Canberra as some schools are on holidays.

The June 18 meeting of Eurobodalla Gourmet Gardeners saw 16 of the Club meet at the home of Lorraine & Andrew Nicholls in Broulee to share some experiences & food, hear about the St Peter’s school market garden initiative, and get the low down on some food preserving.

The shortest day for the year has just gone and 40 starters in this evening’s run cannot wait for the days to get warmer and longer. We welcomed Darren Drewsen and Jordan Hatcher to their first run with the group. The Drewsen family filled the first three places in the 2 kilometres and I suspect the father Darren may have been closer to his children if not for a slip on the knotty path! In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Erin Drewsen, Liliana Murphy, Reg
51 starters participated in Wednesday’s Broulee Run/walk, which was the best field since the cold weather arrived in May.

People from all over the south coast came along”. Lachie started the evening describing why he had to do something. Over the past 2 summers he
As the winter wind and cold starts to bite many regulars considered sitting in front of a warm fire more attractive than braving the conditions at this evening’s Broulee Run/walk. 31 people of all ages and abilities tested themselves over the three distances. In the 2 kilometres the front runners Tino Lopresti and Mitchell Beby showed their class in recording personal best times and putting a 3 minutes gap over the 3rd place runner.

Step into the new season in sustainable style. Art on the Path this Sunday at Broulee offers alternatives to buying clothes without burning a hole in your pocket.

Wearing upcycled
There were perfect conditions for this evening’s Broulee run/walk.
