Find out who's who on the new PMRA committee
Welcome to the New Committee

Our AGM on 10th September was well attended. Members enjoyed complimentary nibbles and a welcome drink upon arrival at the Mandurah Offshore Fishing & Sailing Club.

We elected a new committee: Jim Booker, Steve Zielinski, Peter McGuire, Amy Johnson, Lyn Bayens, Bob Ballantine, Andy White.

All but one of these members are new to the committee which is very exciting. We hope they have lots of great ideas between them.
If you would like to send them YOUR ideas, now is the perfect time to do so. Please contact us.

Our guest speaker at the AGM was Mandurah Mayor Rhys Williams who talked about Transform Mandurah and answered members’ questions.

Here is a copy of the Annual Report. Members are also entitled to a printed copy of the Financial Report – available upon request.

This "A Class" nature reserve down Leisure Way is tended to on the last Sunday of the month by the Friends of Samphire Cove. During the cooler months they were busy planting, and now thanks to a donation from Bunnings Halls Head, they have installed watering pipes.
If you would like to join in on Sunday 25th October to help weed, water or sweep the wheelchair-friendly paths, please arrive self-contained at 9am and bring your own hand sanitiser, gloves, mozzie repellent, drinking water, broom or your favourite weeding tool.

They stop at 10.30am for BYO morning tea to chat and to enjoy the flora, fauna and paver art.

Farewell Message from Linda Thorpe

We are so lucky to be living in WA having had no community transmission of COVID-19 for several months.
We should remain vigilant, however, as many carriers don't have symptoms, and also reinfections may be possible.
This is my final newsletter to you as I have moved to Dawesville, so I am taking this opportunity to wish you well, and to ask you to support your new committee, and to put your hand up to help whenever you can.

I have recently encountered a few people who think that sanitising one's hands means one can't pass on the virus by shaking hands!
This of course is incorrect, so please read this article recommended by President Jim Booker as a reminder about what we now know about coronavirus.
Keep well, stay safe, and remember to put the toilet lid down when you flush!
