Kaj – Phone Book - A sample of the new phone book was presented to the members tonight and Kaj noted that it looks great , the content is as up to date as it has ever been and thanked the members for their contribution in that regard also thanked the Board for giving him the go

ahead to tackle this project when many had questioned the relevance of a local phone book in this age.

It will be available in 1-2 weeks with it being advertised in the Paper and on Radio and available from Woolies, Dome and the 2 newsagents in town.

He thanked his team of JB, Steve, Rob and Graham and also noted we had great support from local business with some 100 advertisers buying spots in the book.

Guest Speaker – David McGrinder Sothern Ports.

Intro – Ewin Stewart

David had a late call up to present to the meeting but gave a good run down on how the Port is going touching on how they are handling Covid

issues, some of the completed projects they have handled including major sealing of the Road infrastructure and upcoming projects in the pipeline. Some of these include Shed recladding, Berth 2 re-piling and updating their Digital systems.

He noted they turned over 14 million tonnes this year against a forecast of 15 million but said that grain tonnage was up and they expect that again next year.

David finished up by commenting on their community sponsorships and the processes for this have been updated as it is an important part of community involvement for the Port.
