It has been a long month, January, with all sorts of reserves depleted and the credit cards pinging and declining whenever I pop in to buy some wine or food for the kids (no order of priority there, I promise). Still, we all made it through the busyness of the silly season, visitors, guests, and whatever. Well done to all retail outlets and restaurants for their excellent holiday service.

This weekend, we can look forward to JP’s burger night at the Full Stop tonight and decent weather on Sunday with a significant wind switch.

Grom Competitions

Sunday will also see the first of a series of Seal Point Boardriders Surf Club Grom contests at the Seal Point beachie. Open to members of the club who are U18. If you want to come along and see our young rippers and future champs, we’ll kick off around 11 a.m.

Then let’s not forget that Wine On Water is just around the corner – in early March, actually. If you’re one of the lucky ones who got tickets, then you’re already in the know. Find out more here.

Then there is the very exciting news of the groynes being built, with much happening in this respect in the first quarter – more here.

We are still in the dark about the outlets coming to the petrol station precinct. There is a lot of serious building going on there, and no one can shed any light on what the three buildings are going to house. There are all sorts of rumours. Can anyone enlighten us on this development? 

The River Club

The River Club has proven to be a great success, with so many people coming down to have a game of Padel or to enjoy a delicious meal at the restaurant. Have you tried Padel yet? The kids love it and have impromptu tournaments, and the parents have a few dops while the kids play – winning combination. More here

That’s my 300-odd words; thanks for reading.
