COFFS CITY ROTARY • NSW • DISTRICT 9650

Weekly Meeting 10 August 2020

This week Melissa Nunn advised that Prosper Coffs Harbour is formulating a youth hub directory to assist and increase local arts and creative workshops, and are also working with Coffs Harbour Botanical Gardens to increase botanical and gardening workshops for local youth. Prosper has also recently commenced a Schools’ Environmental Grants Program for local schools, which offers $1,000 to individual Primary Schools to support environmental projects that strengthen students and the wider school community’s environmental learning experience.

George Cecato advised that Coffs City Council recently commenced two major projects, namely stage 5 of The Jetty Foreshore Redevelopment (being the northern car park, which will comprise 78 car spaces and will be completed prior to the Christmas school holidays), and the Glasshouse building at the Botanical Gardens.

Bob Carle advised that there has been some vandalism to the Services Directory sign on the highway near Coffs Creek. It included theft of the large anchor and one service group’s sign. Bob is not sure if the sign was taken down by the associated group, so until more is known there is little that can be done at the moment.

For all that and more, be sure to check out this weeks’ edition of the Coffs City Rotary Chatroom.
