If you are interested in being part of our Committee, you are welcome to attend as observers at our meeting on 10 August at the British Hotel at 7 pm. We have several members who are retiring from the Committee and we need people with energy and passion for the Port to step up to the plate. Please consider being part of our Committee.
The PoANT website is up and away.
It looks fabulous and thanks and congratulations are extended to all who worked hard to establish the website.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING of the NTSA
This meeting will be held at Glanville Hall on Saturday 5 November. Try to keep this date free and come and support the NTSA in the beautiful space that is Glanville Hall. The NTSA has been engaged in strategic planning to ensure its long term survival and one of the speakers at the AGM will talk about that process and possible outcomes. There are also spectacular scones served with jam and cream on arrival too.
The Port of Adelaide Branch of the National Trust, National Trust SA, the Port Adelaide Residents Environment Protection Group (and other groups) have been lobbying the State Government to address heritage, tourism and environmental issues on Torrens Island. Urgent action is needed to avoid lessees being granted access to the Island before these issues are fully explored (see the 8 June edition of the Portside Messenger).

Thanks to Andrew Winkler for his work on completing a Heritage at Risk nomination for Torrens Island. It should be on the website soon and I will have some hard copies available at the AGM.
For those not familiar with the Heritage at Risk program I have included the following information:
"The Heritage @ Risk is a two stage national program designed to publicise natural and cultural heritage which is at risk across Australia. The first stage involves identifying the top ten places at risk in each State which are then nominated for the National top ten heritage places at risk. In SA the program has been very effective in attracting media attention to endangered heritage, particularly local heritage".
Last but not least congratulations to Val Wales on being a joint winner of Charles Sturt Council's Sustainable Citizen of the Year Award. Well done Val.
