Sailors Bay is back on track
SAILORS Bay at the southern end of Sawtell Beach is no longer impassable at high tide.
The Advocate reported last week that banksias uprooted by recent storms had collapsed along the front of the sand dunes, which had made walking the popular beach difficult.
A clean-up crew from Coffs Harbour City Council was quick to respond to local resident William Buckley’s call for assistance, much to the delight of Sawtell Beach Dune Care volunteer Les Fairey.
“Whoever’s responsible for cutting up the trees and bulldozing the root balls into the banks should be commended,” Mr Fairey said.
“They deserve our commendation for their excellent clean-up work.”
