A number of residents have had their possessions stolen either by intruders or by opportunistic passers by.
Don't forget to report any suspicious activity to police.
Motor club's short run to Saltwater
The Taree Historic Motor Club is a group of like minded enthusiasts who enjoy cars and company. If you are interested in joining the group please contact Robyn Higson on 0408 755 595.
The designated venue for the club's June short run was Saltwater. The run is mainly for older vehicles to participate in although any models are most welcome.
There are a number of venues for the first Sunday of each month e.g. Manning Point (when road conditions are suitable), Wingham Brush, Coopernook Pub, Harrington, Croki and Saltwater.
The idea is to travel at a more relaxed pace and we bring our own morning tea and lunch and just sit around enjoying the wonderful environment and each other's company.
At the June venue one of our members brought along his beautiful 1928 Dodge Tourer which he restored years ago.
Our July run was to be to Manning Point but due to the road works we will also return to Saltwater (weather permitting).
Whatever vehicle you drive please take care.
Markets this Sunday
The very successful and popular markets at the beach are on again this Sunday.
Don't forget, the markets are now located near the surf club and skate park.
Pop along and see what is on offer. A wide range of goods are offered for sale.
