Hello Readers,August 2018 Yank News
Fungi abound at this time of year and hence the cover shot by Gillian Rayment. The Natural Resource Centre at Normanville features fungi in their regular article this month. You will find their spread on page 26-27.
More from the Yankalilla Historical Society who give us a bit of the history of Anacotilla and early agricultural innovation in their article on page 15.
The Yankalilla Show is raising funds to fix the double doors at the front entrance to the main hall. To do this they are holding another Bush Dance following their successful event held in 2017. Get along and support your local Show!
All the details are on page 10-11.
The Wirrina water and sewerage issue is in the process of coming to some arrangement between DCY and SA Water. These people would like to know your opinions and feedback in order to come up with the best proposal. If you are affected you should have your say. See page 8 for more detail and the links to the feedback websites.
In other news...
Ladies Probus Club tell us of their latest happenings, the Men's Probus Club and Normanville Sailing Club held their annual awards, the Tigers look to be in multiple finals in footy, netball and hockey, Rox Rosey tackles plastic bags, Yankalilla Council keep us 'In The Loop' and, of course there are some readers' letters covering a wide subject range as usual.
Time for some 'self-promotion' as I have a few spare centimetres of space left and I don't often remember to do this...
The Yankalilla Regional News has a website - yes, most of you know but I should mention it occasionally - where you will find the digital version (pdf file) of each issue. Check it out at:
www.yrn.com.au
The YRN also has a Facebook page - yep, doesn't everyone? - where relevant stuff will be posted or shared. It doesn't have the same space (economic) restrictions as the hard copy so there tends to be a wider news net that may be of interest locally or events with short notice or even lost pets. Sometimes it might be just something to broaden the mind! Give it a like and get on the news feed at:

Until next issue...

July 2018

Hello Readers,
It's the start of another financial year and now for the joys of doing the tax return for the one just gone.
Well, I haven't left myself much room but at this time of year, there is less happening to talk about. However, there is plenty happening in the background for planning of future festivals and events, such as the Yankalilla Show 2018 and Festival Fleurieu 2019. There are also plans for another local festival - why not? - called the Sonder Literary Festival Yankalilla, possibly commencing from 2020. See page 9.
Even though winter is here, there are plenty of things to see and do around the area. Keep reading and all will be revealed in the following pages. You could always curl up by the fire with a coffee while you read the 'letters' or Yankalilla Council's plans for our future inside 'In The Loop' and of course the Natural Resource Centre has lots to share - it's Plastic Free July!
Until next issue...
Cheers,
Paul Jelfs
