Hello Readers,April 2018 Yank News
Happy Easter and may you have your fill of chocolate! We had to push fairly hard to get this out for Easter but mission accomplished.
However, some areas may be delayed as there is no mail deliveries over Easter.
We had a change of state government during March with the election held on the 17th.
Amazing the attention we were getting from politicians up to the election. Since then, it’s like
aliens took them all away! (One can only hope.)
So we will see what the Liberals have in store for us in due course.
Speaking of elections, the Council elections are coming up in November this year. Have you thought about running? To find out what is involved CEO Nigel Morris would love to have a coffee with you to discuss all the finer points.
That is just one of the snippets of information that Yankalilla Council has included in this month’s In The Loop, which is double it’s usual size.
We have your letters, with something about dogs (of course), the satisfaction levels regarding our
council, even a bit of spirituality among other things.
Coming up in May is the SA History Festival and our first Heritage Fleurieu Coast festival. The program was in the March issue (did you keep your copy?) or more are available at the Visitor Information Centre. This issue has some more updates and a couple of minor changes to the program.
This year Leonards Mill is celebrating 160 years and there are some events planned at the iconic building for the history festival.
The new petrol station is taking shape between Yankalilla and Normanville. It certainly looks big enough to cater for future needs and we all get a good view of the development as we pass by.
What else? Always plenty more to read about… so find your comfy chair and carry on.
Until next issue...

March 2018


Hello Readers,When you see adverts stacked next to this editorial, you know I had to squeeze lots in!March 2018 Yank News
The Heritage Fleurieu Coast is not far away (May) and the number of local events (see page 16) has surpassed expectations. So, the Festival program has been included in this issue as the centre lift-out. Then you can lift-out ‘In The Loop’ after that to see what Yankalilla Council has to say this month.
Markets, car boot sales, and fundraising events are plentiful this month which seems to be the trend around Easter (oh yeah, Easter is at the end of this month, by the way) and there will be the usual influx of visitors, making the most of what we have to offer.
Readers letters (some tell me that’s their favourite section) are on page 18 and they are not all about dog by-laws.
The Stobie Pole Art Project has finally come to fruition (no, not the election posters!) and we will soon start seeing the art along Main Street, Yankalilla. Details in this issue of course.
What else? All kinds of things but I haven’t got the space to tell you, so… read on!
Until next issue...
