After a long wait, we have now received the Stronger Communities Grant of $33,000 from Central Coast Council.

We can now proceed to complete the Fittout of the Building and hopefully be up and running sometime in the next couple of Months.

We have come a long way since the slab was laid last year.

Thanks to the efforts of Larry, Peter, Doug ,Lester, Frank, Terry, Ron, Morrie and Steve who have worked tirelessly to help the Building take shape we are now coming down the Home straight with the Electrical and Plumbing Works and Ramps to be finished.

Watch this space.
See you in The Shed

I will be attending the Funeral Service on your behalf at Palmdale on Thursday 12/1/2017 at 10am.

Shed Update
It is likely that Ausgrid will connect Power to the Pole adjacent to The Shed sometime next week. A good effort by Alistair and Larry for securing this.

A team has been busy cleaning the old Shed so that we can hand it back to Coast Shelter at the end of this Month.

A Sausage Sizzle is to be held at Bunnings Erina next Saturday 14/1 and Sunday 15/1.
