In a council meeting that looked from the outside of being fairly tame the gallery and viewers of Live Streaming did manage to get value for money from some robust debate around the Minutes of the previous meeting that saw some good back and forth with the councillors trying to best capture in writing what was censored from the video archives of the meeting before.

Chain Bay Sewcraft,
WIRES was called to an unusual but elegant visitor to our shores over the last couple of days. Initially the Elegant sea snake was sighted on Sunday at Long Beach.
