Aquatics: Pittwater Pathways: Celebrating Local Aquatics For 10 Years: For a decade now Pittwater resident John Illingsworth has been producing videos to educate, celebrate, defend, honour and delight viewers on all things Pittwater and more. The range of subjects stems from the historic to people to current and contemporary issues facing residents in his 'Pittwater Pathways' series as well as insights on how to 'pull those weeds' found in reserves under his 'Pittwater EcoWarriors' seriesMr. Illingsworth is steeped in Pittwater culture - his and his family's roots go back several generations in this place.

John's work, all done voluntarily, has taken him beyond Pittwater as requests from further afield for his talents grow. Longer term readers may recall his epic cataloguing, by film, of the Inaugural Coast Walk  undertaken in 2014, which commenced from Barrenjoey and ran in this news service as he finalised each sections' edit. 

As our readership grows we'd like to share some of his wonderful films for 'newbies' and hope some of our own favourites amongst this valuable collection of archives will be enjoyed once more by Readers who have been with us since day 1. What runs this Issue is just a few of those films in his vast body of work and just one example of how people around here choose to 'give back' to this community.

Profile Bill Sheridan

Summer for many of us is getting involved in or watching Surf Life Saving Carnivals. For Bill Sheridan it's about photographing these carnivals, and it's been that way for decades.

A highlight of the 2019 Surf Life Saving Sydney Northern Beaches Branch Awards of Excellence was a SLSSNB Life Membership being awarded to Bill. This is one of several recognitions Bill has been honoured with during the years. In fact, it was requests from those on the beach for a Profile that led to a plea to Bill to share his story.

Bill Sheridan, lovely man who takes great photos...got to know Bill over the years at carnivals, he would then send photos to you. Thanks for the memories mate - Keith Caldwell Bulli SLSC

Bill has time for everyone. His passion for photographing surf boats and the length he goes to do this is exceptional. Unsure if many people know, but Bill does not live close to our beaches and can sometimes travel hours to get to the beach in time to take photos. A truly inspiring and gentle man. - Lara RaymondBilgola SLSC 'Gold', Open Female Surf Boat Champions, Aussies 2004 

William Edward Sheridan is a lot more than we see of him on the beaches each Season though. He had a wonderful childhood in glorious Whanganui, the son of an English father and Lebanese mother, met Swiss people while 'bringing in the hay' each Summer, has served as an Independent for the Waterloo Ward on Sydney City Council during the Monorail debates of the 1980's and took images of buildings slated for modifications as part of his 'works' so an archive could be kept, while during the 1970's he won a scholarship to study at the Institute of Balkan studies, Thessaloniki University, Greece.

Final in this series of how paddocks were turned into urban blocks and where some of the names for access to these came from.

For the Summer Break period a rundown of where you can find Art locally or get involved in Art through classes, workshops and more - if your venue or event (until end of January 2021) is not listed here, please email us and we'll add it in.

This page will also be updated regularly over the December 2020 - January 2021 period as more Art event dates are confirmed, so revisit to see what's happening over this Summer in our local galleries and creative spaces.

Food Summer Stone Fruit: The Peaches, Apricots, Nectarines, Plums of things - Australian stone fruits are some of the sweetest and juiciest worldwide and are currently in season. January brings the peach, plum, nectarine apricot crops to grocers with an abundance of lovely sweet fruit this Summer. High in Vitamins A and C content, important for growth and development, and for the maintenance of the immune system and good vision in the case of Vitamin A, as well as Niacin which supports the energy required by the brain and digestive system, contributes to DNA repair and even is said to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease in those already on a statin, these fruits are for Summer and all that comes with it. 

Being in season, and cheap, if a case or two can be bought, it may be worthwhile making the chutney recipe available here to add special touches to a few Summer dishes or to store them away for Winter when you want that taste of Summer without having to fly to the northern Hemisphere by simply stewing and freezing. If you want something fresh for right now, cutting up and tossing a few of these into your salad mix with some goats cheese and prosciutto makes the mundane magnificent. A few ideas for those who find they have an abundance of these fruits runs this Issue.
