Happy New Year Readers!JanuaryFebruary 2017 Yank News
Barring unforeseen circumstances, such as the end of the world (again) or other catastrophic events - fake news is good for a laugh at least - we are in for an entertaining year on the Fleurieu.
NYE kicked off the year in spectacular fashion with the pageant and fireworks at Normanville.
You can see the photo gallery on the YRN Facebook page. Some selected photos - taken by
Gillian Rayment - are on the cover.
The Festival Fleurieu is almost here and the program is available this month. Look out for it or go online. There is an update on page 8.
There is also the SA History Festival during May and there should be some local activities in conjunction with that.
Yankalilla Council has amended the dog laws for Normanville beach. For your information dogs must be on a leash in the Family Friendly area of Normanville Foreshore which is between 200 metres North and 400 metres South of the Jetty at all times. There is some more explanation in the Letters section of this issue.
Ok, enough of me, read on for more of what’s happening in the area.
Until next issue...
