Community Forum

You are invited to a Community Forum to understand and respond to the 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Provisions.

These provisions allow property owners to remove all trees within 10 m of a dwelling, and all bush within 50 m.

This will have the potential to signi?cantly impact Pearl Beach.

The Progress Association has sought to bring a panel of views together to allow an informed discussion and to formulate a community response.

Bush Care Current Happenings

In September we went back to North Coral Crescent, in cooperation with Dunecare. We carried out remedial planting of acacias using long stemmed planting method and got stuck into Ochna, Yuccas and weeding around our previous planting. The site is looking good. We erred on the side of planting in areas with some shade cover in an endeavour to achieve a better survival rate. We also planted deeper following coaching by Anna from Council.

October 11th will be led by Malcolm and will be around the Lagoon. The date has been changed in order to fit in with the Firies Bushfire planning morning on the 4th. Targeted weeding plus morning tea lagoon-side. Assembly is at the Lagoon accessed adjacent to No. 83 Diamond Road.

November 1st will see us back at Paul Landa Reserve with some celebrations at end of session to recognise that this is our last session before Christmas. Also no meeting in January because of heat, snakes etc.
Note on Bitou: some dieback noticed on Bitou facing the sea on headland path; it apparently does not like seawater.

Wine Fair Media Release

Catherine Vale & Crowd 2013

Pearl Beach Food and Wine Fare

SPRING IS IN THE AIR

10am – 5pm: Saturday 27th September 2014

Pearl Beach Memorial Hall, 9 Diamond Road, Pearl Beach

If you love gourmet food and boutique wines why not head off to the annual Pearl Beach Food and Wine Fare. The event hosted by the Pearl Beach Progress Association is now in its seventh year and as a community fundraising activity attracts large crowds who enjoy tasting and purchasing from our select range of boutique wines and gourmet foods.

Lynne Lillico from the Progress Association says “we will be showcasing three Hunter based boutique wineries Wollombi Wines, Finch Lane Wines and Catherine Vale Wines” and an eclectic selection of food producers”.

Favourites return for sampling and purchase from a range of fresh gourmet producers including local Little Creek Cheeses with a variety to crave for, Simon’s Wollombi Pantry adding spices to the flavour, Marcs Patisserie with an array of mouthwatering chocolate, pastry and cakes, plus Margin’s Mushrooms a local identity, and always a sell-out.

Returning Crooked Creek’s savoury and sweet biscuits with their homemade Christmas puddings, Hunter Olives and processed products. What better than bees as pure as nature, Wollombi Honey to temp the taste buds, and always a favourite experience an exotic range of Laguna Lavender products to appeal to the senses”.

New this year is ‘We only do Delicious’ presenting a delicious variety of gift ideas, and ‘Catering by the Two Turkeys’ for home or party.

The event promises to be the best ever come so along and have some fun.

Gourmet Hampers filled with food and wine generously donated by our exhibitors with be raffled with proceeds toward the hall maintenance.
