Come and volunteer with us on Saturday the 23rd June at our community planting event. The South Beach Community Group has partnered with the City of Cockburn to undertake planting activities within Barrow Park drainage line to improve park amenity and biodiversity values.
The community planting event will be held on Saturday 23rd June from 9am-12 noon and all members of the community are invited. This event is supported by the City of Cockburn and all tools and materials will be provided. Plant selection has been based on using local native species that are best adapted to local conditions, biodiversity values and with a resilience to low watering regime.
Vegetation along the Barrow Park drainage line (adjacent to South Beach Promenade) was starting to decline and we have had much feedback from residents requesting that maintenance of the area be undertaken. As a result you have likely noticed that the declining vegetation has been recently removed. Unfortunately, more than we were advised and more than we would like has also been removed which is a real shame. We can assure you though, while it may look sparse now this is just an interim measure!
This community planting event is part of the first stage of the Barrow Park playground expansion. An update on the progress of the playground expansion will be coming your way soon!
A message for the 25th annual Power Station Triathlon:
The 25th annual Power Station Triathlon will be conducted from the old Power Station at CY O’Connor Beach on Saturday November 25, 2017. As with previous years events we wish to inform residents of road closures, traffic movements and also to request your assistance. The event brings some 400 competitors to the event on the morning to compete in a healthy activity. If you have any questions regarding the following information please do not hesitate to contact us. The event is supported by the City of Cockburn and WA Police.
As most residents are new in the area over the past two years there will be some inconvenience with road closures. We invite you to join in by watching if you are close to the course – we thank you for you assistance and cooperation on:
Saturday, November 25, 2017 6.00am to 9.30am
The following roads will be closed to through traffic for the duration: ROBB ROAD, ROLLINSON ROAD and BENNETT ROAD.
Residents will be able to move into and out of the area if required under the supervision of event staff who will be stationed at corners.
We do request your assistance in trying not to move vehicles along Rollinson or Bennett Road from 6.00am to 9.30am. We believe we may be able to open roads at 8.45am.
We thank you for your assistance and trust there will be minimal inconvenience.
Thank you to all the stall holders, food vendors and visitors who made last Sunday’s event special. A big thank you to everyone who donated unwanted goodies to our stall too! While the visitor numbers were less than last year, we still met plenty of new neighbours and made a little bit of money for our community group.
Please join us this Sunday for our final community meeting of the year.
Learn more about the future development projects around our neighbourhood: We will welcome a Landcorp representative showing us the Shoreline to the south of our neighbourhood.
Sustainability at home: The City of Cockburn’s Sustainability Officer will share the new bin system that may affect some homes. Also, local business Pearthworms will be presenting a new worm farm concept.
Open Forum: bring your project ideas and suggestions to make our neighbourhood an even better place to live.
As always, volunteers helping with the set-up and pack-up of this meeting are greatly appreciated. Simply arrive 20 minutes before the event and lend a helping hand.
