A resident has warned that a youngish woman from town and  known to police has been  seen on the eastern part of Riverside Dr. It is alleged that money has been taken from a  vehicle, she has trespassed by sleeping in a resident’s unlocked caravan and there’s been one incident of an aggressive attempt to enter a house to obtain money for her habit. The police will come over if there’s evidence.

The resident strongly suggests you don’t offer this woman a lift from the Hibbard ferry and all sheds, caravans, houses etc. should be locked up.  The woman is described as short, “dumpy” with dark hair and a sallow complexion. She tends to come over towards the end of the Centrelink payment period when she runs out of money. As the crime rate here is non-existent or negligible we do get a bit complacent!

Three events we hope you’re interested in

Tomorrow night a community Halloween will be held at Kangaroo Park near the Settlement Pt. Ferry from 5.30pm after “Trick and Treat”. It finishes at 7pm. The Council will attend to talk to residents who were unable to make the evening meeting they held about the Community Plan.

“Kangaroo Park” to be handed to community.

Council has advised that the front of “Kangaroo Park” that has been vacant for over 30 years will be utilised for community  activities. Currently Northside Progress Assoc. volunteers mow this area and gave Council  draft  plans for its utilisation ( subject to Council approval). It appears that that the area at  the back of the block  will still be developed for housing- more later. Enquiries Narelle Milligan NSPA Secretary. Em: or M. 0 411 236 124
