Sunday 4 October
Water events from midday include kids’ dinghy race and Opening Day race (details on club site

up with the best poker hand.
Ceremony for everyone at 2pm to be followed by a Chocolate Treasure Hunt and Dive.
Whittaker’s Chocolate are generously supporting this event where gold chocolate bars will be
hunted by kids in the sea and around the beach. Each numbered bar represents a prize! You

Local burglaries
Thanks to people who have replied offering advice and assistance with security cameras. We
now have a team working on finding the best solution for Plimmerton.
Unfortunately people have advised us of more robberies in the area … including the removal of
building materials and tools from two properties, homes as well as businesses are being
We will keep you posted on the police investigation of these break-ins. And when talking to the
businesses that have been robbed the stress of the experience and the additional expense
incurred is apparent. Topor Bar and Bistro had to cancel a full house for its Wellington on a
Plate lunch on Saturday … a major loss. Then there’s the cost of beefing up security which is
not minor.

Puppy classes at Vet Smart … starting 8 September
If you are lucky enough to have a new pup then these classes will be just what you need. Ria, an
animal behaviourist, and Vet Smart vet nurses, will set you and your pup on the right path.
