2015 A Year of Action Coming Up.

06/02/2015

The first meeting of Middleton Beach Group for 2015  held on 19/1/2015 was well attended.

A number of matters were discussed:-

Coastal Perks Enhancement Plan.  Jacqui Purvis from City of Albany provided an overview of the ten year plan to replace coastal playground and associated leisure/recreation infrastructure at Emu Point, Ellen Cove and Eyre Park.

Middleton Beach Entry Statement. More discussion is needed due to a City of Albany plan to establish generic entry statement guidelines. It was thought that the proposed sculpture using part of old timber jetty would still be acceptable.

Esplanade Site. Proposal to push for removal of wire fence soonest brought some concerns re vandals, rubbish etc but it was generally felt that the symbolic gesture of removing this eyesore should be pursued. M.B.G. offered to help City in managing site.

Lest We Forget.  Three of the headstones will be taken to Melbourne for inclusion in the 5000 poppies project at federation Square for Anzac 2015

Plastic poppies. The existing poppies will be used to create a map of Australia and New Zealand in the sand at Ellen Cove. The outline will be planted by members, the infil will be for the public. A new memory book will be provided.

After the meeting the group shared some drinks and food in a community atmosphere.
