Education Program Manager, Australia wide for ‘Take 3 for the Sea’, Monica Mudge was at Mollymook this morning and expressed her heartfelt gratitude for the number of volunteers who turned up for today’s ‘Clean up Australia Day’ at Mollymook Beach.

The backbone of the Mollymook Beach clean up was and usually is the Mollymook Beach Ocean swim group and their spouses/partners. Today the swimmers commenced their morning swim early to ensure they were ready to start at 8.00 am. They were also joined by some members of the public as well as the ‘Take 3 for the Sea’ surf club nippers led by youngster Julie Armstrong.

With such a large turn out of volunteers, they were able to collect rubbish along the entire length of Mollymook Beach from the north end to the south end, around to Collers Beach, the Golf Club course and parking area, the cemetery and adjoining  streets/gutters/path ways.

Rubbish included a bike riding helmet, old discarded building items and some old clothing. Volunteers mentioned that the worst offenders were those leaving their cigarette butts everywhere. Other volunteers mentioned how this year the cemetery was no where near as bad as past years with the amount of plastic flowers blown all over the cemetery. Being so close to the ocean this type of un-managed rubbish which finds its way onto our park lands, beaches and even into the ocean was less than past years and gratitude was expressed towards those that have taken this issue to heart.

Volunteers enjoyed coffee, muffins & freshly baked scones provided gratis by the Mollymook Golf Club at the conclusion of the ‘Clean Up’.

Introduction by ‘Take 3 for the Sea’ guardian, Monica Mudge

.

Blue the feature documentary film screened at the Mollymook Surf Club on Friday evening. It charted the drastic decline in the health of our oceans. With more than half of all marine life lost in the last 40 years and the expansion of the industrialization of the seas, the film set out the challenges we now face and the opportunities for positive change. BUT if we don’t make the drastic changes necessary, it is predicted by 2050 that there will be more plastic in the sea than fish.

Blue the film showed how the oceans are broken, and what can be done to fix them. It featured passionate advocates for ocean preservation, it tackled themes of habitat destruction, species loss and pollution. It was filmed with stunning cinematography in the seas surrounding Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines and the US, looking at how the very nature of the ocean is being altered.

The challenge it presented us: The ocean has been the guardian of life on earth, and now it is our turn to be guardians for the ocean.

Performances every Monday 4.00 pm to 5.30 / 6.00 pm.

(An all ‘Star Cast’ that varies from week to week)

.

Monday December 19, performance in review:

  • Act 1: The effervescent Raymondo on violin playing his Irish reels and jigs.
  • Act 2: Greeted by thunderous applause the next act saw the ‘String Bags’ take to the stage. This threesome consisted of Jan and Raymondo on Violin with Antoinette on the Cello.
  • Act 3: Mike travelled from the ACT playing his ukulele and singing some old time favourite festive songs like ‘Jingle Bells’ etc. He handed out the words and the whole audience joined in and sang along with him.
  • Act 4: The down to earth Jimmy Williams came on stage and sang some old time country favourites whilst playing his American ‘Dobro’ instrument and some occasional background blending of the violin from Raymondo.
  • Act 5: To the hush of the audience, husband and wife team (Dougie and Marlene) took to the stage reciting poetry, fitting for the occasion.

Address: ‘The Star Hotel’ 82 Princes Highway Milton

.

Debrief the following morning at the beach.

  1. Raymondo mentioned how mixed the cast was, all that was missing was someone to do some scripture reading. Sooner than you could blink an eye, none other than Peter the Priest arrives on the scene for his annual sabbatical at Mollymook Beach.
  2. Audience: The variety of performers certainly attracted a crowd that included local luminaries the likes of Dorothy Buck, Gwenda Turnbull, Mike Devlin and Julie Ryan.

The Milton Entertainment Centre with performances every Monday afternoon commencing at 4.00 pm.

.

The 2016 Mountain to Sea marathon was once again an outstanding success with approx. 55 participants including some children who set off on the Pigeon House mountain climb a little ahead of the older participants that included elder statesman Bobby White.  The purpose for this event was to raise awareness and support for charity, principally Interplast and MUD Kids. It was the brainchild of two young boys, Harm and Jonathan Schaap, who were inspired by burns survivor Turia Pitt’s book Everything to Live for. With the assistance of their parents Ice and Maria it became a reality and has become an annual event on the local calendar. To date the Mountain to Sea marathon has raised over $14,000 for these charities.

East Coast Low – dangerous surf conditions

A low pressure system moving south from Queensland and down the NSW coastline brings damaging winds, heavy rainfall and a dangerous surf to the South Coast Tourist mecca, Mollymook. Abnormally high tides are contributing to the dangerous surf conditions with Mollymook beach almost deserted and a few brave-hearts taking time out for coffee at the Beach Hut cafe.

The severe east coast low is predicted to be fiercest on the NSW South Coast on Sunday evening, with electrical ‘Black-outs’ already occurring mid afternoon.

Works at Mollymook Beach and Blackwater creek are currently underway with the rock protection structure now complete. As this is a buried structure, the majority of the rock is not visible on site, however you will notice some rock protection at the existing storm water and overflow outlets at the top of the bank and shown in the photo.

The carting of sand from Lake Conjola to Mollymook is scheduled to start on Monday May 2, 2016 and continue over a 2 week period. Works are scheduled for completion in June 2016.
