MidCoast Council undertook sand scraping on Old Bar Beach between October 23 and November 4.
The sand scraping is a temporary erosion control measure designed to create a sand buffer (pile of sand) in front of the erosion scar.
The sand buffer is designed to be washed away during erosion events instead of losing the foreshore.
Surveys of the work done show that with the combined effort of machines on the beach and a small amount of sand accretion (natural sand build up).
Monitoring of the works will continue until Friday, February 1, 2019.
The surveys over this time will give a good representation of how the trial worked (sand won and lost over the period between October 23, 2018 and February 1, 2019).
Get Apple trained for the holidays
The CTC at Old Bar has always been able to provide training on a range of technology subjects but has struggled to offer training on iPads or iPhones.
Now that has changed. One of our priceless volunteers, Sue Lathwell, is happy to provide training to anyone on a one on one basis.
So why not get yourself up to speed for the holidays? For a very moderate cost, this can be done at the CTC or in your home if necessary. To obtain training on Apple devices, or any other technology subject, please call in at the CTC at 5/45 Old Bar Rd. or phone 6553-6677 to make an appointment.
Craft at Old Bar
December 5 finishes off the year with a snowy Christmas luminary workshop.
These make the perfect addition to any mantle or table and are fun to make with the kids and grandkids too. We then break for the Christmas school holidays and resume for Term 1 on February 6, 2019!
For further enquiries re requirements, etc. please ring 6553 2500 or 0415 785 608.
Perhaps you would like to make a New Year resolution to become a crafty chick in 2019. All ladies are welcome.
