ONEMANA COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER
It is great to be able to mention that there are not too many sleeps until Christmas – which is a great thing as it brings people to our community for the enjoyment of their summer holidays.
Your committee has plans well underway for the various holiday events and activities that make us who we are and assist in bringing us all closer together.
For our locals, who continue to grow in numbers, to those who enjoy holiday homes at our special alpine village at the beach, these events and activities are always well supported. So
people please enter the dates into your calendars and then join in the community fun while getting to know others around you.
Thursday, 14 November and Thursday 28 November – 6pm. Tennis and Petanque at the Tennis Courts – BBQ Hamburger will be available for a $3.00 donation. Thursday 28 November – 10am. Coffee morning at the Onemana Beach Café.
Thursday 12 December – 6pm. Tennis and Petanque at the Tennis Courts.
Monday 23 December. Christmas Carols at the Marquee.
Sunday 29 December. Onemana Market Day.
With the change to our rules and the subsequent name change, we now encourage both residents and those with an interest in Onemana to consider becoming a member of the
Onemana Residents and Community Association. We are looking to increase the interest in the association and therefore attract more members, hence for those who are already members,
please encourage any non-members to join us.
We will be corresponding over coming weeks to all property owners in the hope they will see the benefits of being part of the community association. The more people we have on board the more effective any consultations would be – while more residents would be aware of
coming community events – just to mention a couple of potential benefits. The cost is $25.00 – information can be obtained through our email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Café Christmas Brunch:
On Christmas Day the Onemana Café will be open between 1.00pm and 5.00pm for a special Christmas brunch – three-course meal at $75 per head. Give them a call on 07 865 7200 to
Market Day 2019:Stall applications are continuing for the 2019 December Market Day. We are still seeking food stalls, if anyone knows of a food stall owner who may wish to be involved then please have
them contact the committee.
It is hoped that a number of eggs will hatch this week. There have been up to eight nests on the beach with four remaining. Protective action has been taken in moving nests to a better location while the protection area has been extended. It is pleasing to see that residents are
well aware of the potential impacts on nests, unfortunately the same cannot be said for some visitors. When and where required a quiet word to anyone ignoring signs is appreciated.
This is an on-going request – please everyone don’t be afraid to ask a neighbour to put out your rubbish or bins rather than leaving them sitting on the curbside for days. By doing this we may
prevent rubbish bags being opened by birds etc and then having waste spread around the streets. We have been told that a good trick is to put the blue bag on top of your bottle recycling bin as birds will not attack bags off the ground.
Not sure if this is true or not but at least it sounds good. We will have a detailed update on the holiday collections in the next newsletter – it was promised for this newsletter but the dude
doing it is currently riding his mountain bike around Tasmania.
Our thoughts are with the family involved in the weekend’s boating tragedy off Pokohino. Thanks go out to those who assisted.
