Bannisters Pavilion Motel & Rooftop Bar
Mollycoddle at the beach: The South Coast Food Alliance held their first event, ‘Mollycoddle at the beach‘ to a capacity filled function centre at the Mollymook Surf Club on Friday evening October 30.
The four founding restaurants: Rick Stein at Bannisters and Tallwood in Mollymook, St. Isidore on the edge of Milton, and Cupitt’s Winery, on the back road between Ulladulla and Milton combined to each present a dish with accompanying wine. It was ‘fine dining’ at its best.
Event coordinator Mel Louth explained that “it was a spring inspired menu and that all four restaurants were incorporating the best locally sourced produce.” For more info, follow the link: ‘Mollycoddle at the beach‘

Fundraiser for the M.U.D. Kids Appeal and Interplast Australia & New Zealand
The Schaap children – Harm and Jonathon assisted by Dad – Ice and Mum – Marja, were the originators of this local Pigeon House to Mollymook marathon event in their endeavours to raise money for the joint beneficiaries (a) the local M.U.D. Kids Appeal and (b) Interplast.
M.U.D. Kids Appeal, is a local community initiative that assists families with sick children who have to travel out of the Milton-Ulladulla area to receive medical assistance. MUD Kids was formed in 2009 to raise funds for three children from the Milton-Ulladulla area who were undergoing cancer treatment in Sydney. It had become apparent that the families of these children were in urgent need of financial assistance, due to long periods spent at hospitals in Sydney, away from home and work. Since that time, MUD Kids has continued to raise funds in order to assist other families in the region who have a child with a serious illness who requires treatment outside the area. For more info visit the M.U.D. web site
Interplast works across the Asia Pacific region implementing over surgical and allied health medical programs and providing free reconstructive surgery for patients who would otherwise not be able to afford access to such services. For more info visit the Interplast web site
