Nick and Lise working on the resolutions tabled by Gordon Laing at the AGM

PARKS AND GARDENS – LISE CARSWELL
Valerie Benson resigned the position and Lise Carswell has taken it up in the interim.

A very productive meeting was held with the Garden Reps where discussions were had regarding protocol, gardening spend and council

Raincoats purchased for Staffa’s team

Cutting back a 1.5 meter firebreak/security break at Geneva Drive has started and approximately half of the work has been done. We had to break for the rain, but will get back to it once the weather improves

Work is underway in Baalen Close in Uitsig for a community garden. The Marina gardeners have helped dig up the bed and the residents have got together to source plants, water and compost. Residents will have a planting day on Saturday.

Flower beds in Canon Island, Park Island security hut and the bridge between Park Island and Eastlake have been upgraded and improved

Thank you to Cherry and Pam for donating the off cuts from the fig plants for use in Marina da Gama

There was some vandalism in Uitsig Park. The bin contents were strewn across the park and the well-point was switched on and left to run. Residents reported the problem and we were assisted by Errol and Sharon Gunn and given a lesson in how the well-point works. It is in good working order and Errol has offered to fix a small fault so that the system is ready for the summer months

STANDARDS

13 new infringements in progress, none finalised

COMMUNICATIONS – PATRICK McKENNA

We are now emerging from the intensive workload associated with the AGM to re-focus on our core communication channels: the weekly newsletter, blog, Facebook page and website. The focus will be on updating the website to include our two new members, Tharwah and Nick, and originating fresh new content for the other channels. After a rather long delay, we need to discuss and vote on options for monetizing our channels. My first suggestion is to appoint 5 Star Stories to explore our options. Another project involves updating our welcome pack for new homeowners and tenants – as well as existing residents who still need guidance on the Marina’s regulations. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you would like us to write up any reports on your portfolio.

SECURITY – PETER ALLEN
