Editorial March 11th, 2017

Another big week of news and events on the South Coast The Hon Linda Burney MP was the guest speaker on International Women’s Day to a very well attended luncheon held at the Gardens Café, Eurobodalla Botanic Gardens. Auntie Loretta, in famous possum coat welcomed the ladies to country. Attendees had come from as far south as Wallaga Lake and as far north as Sanctuary Point to meet Linda and hear her speak. This week also saw the annual Sculpture Bermagui return. Under the new direction of Paul Payten the exhibition of large sculptural pieces in the magnificent settings has returned to the headland of Dickinson Point with an indoor exhibition of smaller works at the Bermagui Community Centre. This is an exhibition not to be missed and continues until Monday next. Enjoy the informative review by Trevor Moore of the exhibition. We can never underestimate the contribution our local communty groups make to our Shire. This week the Batemans Bay Greek community hosted their annual Senior Citizens lunch for 120 very appreciative diners and topped the event off with a donation of $1000 to two local emergency service organisations. Today also saw the official opening of the Quarry Park on the Moruya River, a project that has been the 30 year dream of Rotary Moruya This week saw a new Beagle service to the community, providing readers with the Unofficial Council Noticeboard. Council. Eurobodalla Council’s Noticeboard once appeared on Council’s website for all to read however, that is no longer the case and it is now only available to those purchasing a local newspaper. As many Beagle readers live outside of the Shire or are unable to access a local Wednesday hard copy newspaper the Council Noticeboard has been reproduced unofficially (with the exception of approved development applications which can easily be found on Councils website) without the sanction of Council as The Beagle firmly believes that the pay-to-read Noticeboard must be available freely for residents and ratepayers. Until next Lei
