Hello Readers,Yankalilla regional News June 2014
We are heading into the quieter winter months but there is always something on. Wirrina is opening up to the general public on 8th June (see advert on back cover) to show us all what they have been up to and what they spent millions on since VR Hotels purchased the place.
Festival Fleurieu, formerly the Leafy Sea Dragon Festival is gearing up with a new committee and coordinator for the 2015 event. There is plenty more and as usual I have used up all the space and left myself with just this corner. So read on and you will find out.
Until next issue...
Cheers,

Hello Readers,

Happy Mother’s Day and bring on the winter months.

The wood fires are burning already.ynmay14 “The people who manage the jetty café should give it up, it is never open” is what was written on a covering note from a reader, when I opened some mail recently. The note was attached to a page cut out of the Advertiser. “This information should be in our local news” the note also said. No doubt many have read it but, as requested, I have reprinted the bit (right) that relates to our area - just for the record! (Obviously it is not referring to our wonderful Jetty Food Store in the Main Street, but the café by the jetty at Normanville beach.) It is that time of year when I have to revisit the advertising rates. Roughly based on CPI with added allowance for people who went bankrupt without paying their debts and other non payers. The YRN is not immune to such things unfortunately. The updated price list is effective from June issue. Ending on a happy note… you could win a double pass to the Yankalilla Road Trip show, see page 11. Until next issue...

Cheers, Paul Jelfs - Editor
