DIY Ideas DIY Dolls House Or Garage Or Boatshed - In a few weeks the July school holidays commence (July 1 to 17) and little hands will want to do something creative. 

Artists of the Month:  June 2017: Broadfoot  As we go to press Broadfoot are releasing their sixth album “Timeless Groove Too”, a double album of twenty nine songs available on  iTunes and Google PlayBroadfoot are one of the Far North Coast’s busiest bands, a three-piece whose gigs leave listeners charged with pleasure and with an urge to dance. Broadfoot's music is all about superb musicianship - the interplay between band members as well as improvising, a rare feature in music of today, is just one of the band’s great strengths. 

The Pittwater connection, although we’re sure band members John Moodie and Russell Kereama would feel right at home here too, is through Trent Morgan. You can read more about this former local creative in his Profile page, running this Issue, and all about Broadfoot here, this June.
