Alloura Waters Village residents are involved in a wide range of outside activities in the local community. They include, but are not restricted to, the following;
One of our residents is a keen member of the Australian Kiteflyers Society ( see website: aks.org.au ). The Society is renowned for being the presenters of the Festival Of The Winds held on Bondi Beach on the second Sunday in September each year. This photo shows resident Peter reminiscing with past Society President Godfrey during one of the Bondi festivals.
The residents of Broadwater Court, another Living Choice village nearby, conduct a cycling club and members enjoy regular local weekly rides. A number of our residents are also members but more are always welcome.
In early 2015 the club ventured further afield to New Zealand, here are several photographs from that trip.
For further club information contact resident John McLoskey..
There are a number of residents who, along with some outside members, run a Probus Club which meets regularly and has outings, lunches, etc.

DAVISTOWN PROGRESS ASSOCIATION
The Association was incorporated in 1988. The hall which had previously been used as a picture theatre was in bad condition and in need of major repairs.
Fundraising activities by the DPA are regularly held, with the money raised used to ensure the hall is maintained in good condition, for community use. Public Liability insurance is an ever-increasing cost.
Trash and Treasure Markets have been held annually in January, and Market Days (with stall holders paying a small fee) and these have been popular throughout the year.
The hall is used for activities such as karate, dance, exercises and play group..
It is also the only polling booth in Davistown for Council, State and Federal elections.
During the Davistown Putt Putt Regatta which attracts large crowds to the waterfront, the hall is used by Kincumber Rotary Club for organisational purposes.
The hall can also be hired for a variety of private functions.
The Davistown Progress Association co-ordinates Clean Up Australia(yearly in March) locally with members helping to organise the publicity, volunteers and the transportation of the rubbish to a central pick-up point.
As a lobby group making representations to Gosford Council and other agencies, the DPA plays a very important part in trying to ensure that the issues concerning our community are dealt with effectively.
Meeting Time :- 7.30pm on the 2nd Wednesday of the month (February to December)
Venue:-The Davistown Progress Association Hall, near Central Wharf
The Central Coast Family History Group Inc was formed in 1981, when a small group began to meet over coffee to exchange ideas regarding research into their family histories. Here is link to their website;
INNER WHEEL AUSTRALIA
Objects of Inner Wheel
To promote true friendship
To encourage the ideals of personal service
To foster international understanding
Inner Wheel began in 1924 in Manchester England when a group of wives of Rotarians banded together in friendship and to support their husbands. Since then it has grown into the second largest International Club in the world and has representation at meetings of the World Health Organisation. Wives and womenfolk of Rotarians, past and present, are eligible for membership and it is of special significance to, and fills a great need for, the widows of Rotarians.
In Australia there are 15 Districts, made up of area clubs, all working together for the benefit of the community and for overseas humanitarian projects. On the nearby Central Coast there are very active clubs in Gosford, Gosford North, Terrigal, Toukley and Wyong. International friendships abound and members have formed a very worthwhile association with clubs in Australia and overseas.
A number of residents are or have been keen active Rotarians.

In the section coloured with very dark blue there is a heading “Meta” followed by 5 sub-headings which are not completely transparent. Register is OK. Log in is OK. but what is the difference between ‘Entries feed’ and ‘Comments feed’? Obviously all that is dependent on WordPress (which can be used on its own).
