Community association hears president’s report

Members of the Wagstaffe-Killcare Community Association have received their president’s report at the association’s annual meeting on July 13.
The report from president Mr Mike Allsop covered cancelled events and plans for the rest of the financial year.
Mr Allsop said Trash and Treasure 2020 was cancelled due to the Covid-19 crisis.
He said it had been a success last year with enthusiastic community participation.
Australia Day was successfully held at the start of this year.
Mr Allsop said the event made use of facilities and volunteers on the day and helped to raise funds for the Killcare Rural Fire Service.
He said the association took a different approach to funding and collection and obtained a grant from Central Coast Council to cover the costs of the day, as well as contributing to catering costs.
“We did not seek community donations for the association, rather leaving all donations to the benefit of our local fire service,” Mr Allsop said.
He said operations had slowly recommenced at the Pretty Beach Tennis Courts, with hygiene measures and social distancing still required.
Mr Allsop said the association was continuing to advocate for projects to improve local amenities.
“This is a major focus for us this year, and fortunately we have developed a good relationship with our councillors and with other political representatives as well as various senior officers in Council.”
