KaFRA – Christmas Party and Family Fun Day 2018

Dear Kawana Forest Residents,

You’re invited to attend the KaFRA CHRISTMAS PARTY and Family Fun Day (that was postponed due to rain) on Saturday 24 November, Kurrajong Park.

Free all ages fun games will be facilitated by a Kids Sports instructor, kicking off at 3pm. We are hoping that Santa can find time to drop in around 4.30pm with a free Santa bag for all children who have RSVPed attendance prior to 19 November.

All adults in attendance will receive 1 free entry ticket into our raffle. BBQ and drinks will be available for purchase on the day.

Please FB Message our page to RSVP for the event or email , advising street you live in, children’s names and ages so we can prepare the Santa Bags for distribution on the day. We look forward to seeing you there.

Kawana Forest bridge linking to Birtinya

At our recent KaFRA committee meeting, we raised with Cr Baberowski (who regularly attends our meetings) some residents concerns regarding the area under the bridge linking KF to Birtinya. The issues were the graffiti, lighting, pathway flooding in heavy rains and not draining away quickly, safety and a peppercorn (invasive) tree nearby that needs removal. We also supplied the following video. A SCC docket has been raised and will be investigated. Although it seems to be a simple matter, the issues are that TMR own the bridge, no onsite power, PEPTED parameters and solar lighting expenses etc. We will keep you posted on the outcomes post the site meeting to see if a way forward can be found. Especially as usage of this area will increase with the new Oceanside centre opening, the Meridan playing fields and more local residents using this pathway to the hospital.
