- We are looking for volunteers to do interviews for the Bay and Basin Community Strategic Plan
- The critical stage of the Bay & Basin Community Strategic Plan project is about to start – talking to the community to ask them what they want! The project aims to collect the Bay & Basin community’s vision, values and priorities for this area. These will be presented to Council to integrate into their planning processes, and be used to lobby for funding initiatives outside the normal government funding pathways
- Can you help collect this information? This would involve staffing a table on Owen St, Huskisson, helping people fill out a short survey, for 2 hours on one of the following days:
- Wednesday 4 & 18 November
- Saturday 7 & 14 November
- If you can help, contact:

- Elite Energy have provided the following information regarding road closures during the Little Husky Triathlon, to be held Saturday 31st October and Sunday 1st November. People interested in volunteering can nominate on their website.
Due to NSW Health Orders (COVID-19) and more importantly, how busy Husky is at the moment, we (Elite Energy) have cancelled some of the events and moved some to ensure there is minimum impact on the main street and non-triathlon visitation.
There are two very short triathlons running concurrently on Saturday morning commencing at 6.15am (instead of 7.30am) and these events will cycle around behind the shops and along Huskisson Rd to Jervis Bay Rd and return. This will keep the Owen Street, Woollamia Rd and the Industrial Estate opened and all riders will be off the road by 8.30 am.
Sunday’s event also starting at 6.15am, will be down the main street and along Woollamia Rd with only two shorter triathlons (1 lap and 2 laps of Woollamia Rd), we should be off the roads by 9.00 am.
As per (current) NSW health orders, all events have been reduced to under 500 participants and volunteers.
- Free Financial counselling is available for small businesses effected by the bushfires or COVID
- Australia Day awards – calling for nominations
- Community resilience information sessions
- Federal member information
