Volunteers and army reservists backloading donated goods, Thursday 16 January 2020.
Our community has faced one of its toughest times. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all of the amazing people who have contributed in so many ways to the protection of our homes and our safety, and who have swung into action to ensure that our recovery begins as swiftly as possible.
While we are currently deep in the recovery phase, it is important to prepare for the future to ensure that we are better prepared to handle any future crises. Thank you so much to all who have already donated funds to our community for this purpose.
One of our goals is to establish a critical response kit which includes solar power, satellite phone and internet connectivity, hand-held radios and other specialised equipment that would have been of enormous benefit to assist the teams striving to protect people and property during the crisis. Better communications and access to power would also have supported residents and tourists during and after the emergency.
In any future crisis, immediate access to a robust and reliable critical response kit will provide significant support for the community, help speed the recovery phase and further enhance the resilience of the region.

The annual general meeting of the RHVA will be held on Saturday 25 January at 3pm in the hall at Yulunga Reserve.
At the AGM we will give you a run down on what’s gone on in 2019, answer any questions you may have, then all positions on the executive are vacated and a new committee will be elected.
If you have not served on the RHVA committee and would like to do your bit for the community, we encourage you to nominate. Many of the executive do not intend to run again in 2020 (and the rest are probably only filling the role as no one else has put their hand up!) so we NEED YOUR HELP!
Executive positions :
Planning & Development Co-ordinator
Social & Community Co-ordinator
If you’d like to know more about what a particular role involves, please don’t hesitate to have a chat with the current office bearer. Contact details can be found at: https://rhva.org.au/commitee-members/
Nominations must be received in writing at least 7 days before the AGM (i.e. by the 18th of January). They must be signed by two current members of the association and endorsed by the nominee. You can also self nominate.
As nominations come in, they will be posted on the RHVA website.
On December 2, SCC will commence maintenance works on the rock cover at the transition from the beach to the picnic area and carpark at Boat Harbour Beach. This will involved repositioning of existing rocks and placement of additional large rocks along the area identified in the picture below. Work is expected to take 2 weeks, so will hopefully be completed in time for the holiday season.
A BBQ will also be added to the picnic area at eastern end.
