Alkimos Progress Association will hold its inaugural meeting next week.

Acting chairman Reg Hobbs said it was exciting to be part of a new association.

‘It is exciting, especially in such a go-ahead area with a lot of people moving in,’ he said.

Mr Hobbs said the group would be open to the whole of Alkimos, including the Trinity, Alkimos Beach and Shorehaven estates.

‘And we will include the Amberton estate in Eglinton ” they are keen to join us,’ he said.

A steering committee has included Hayden and Tracy Morgan, Sep Paccani, Allison Gentry and Creating Communities.

The association will be apolitical and aims to:

– Ensure Alkimos is a safe place to live for residents and ratepayers, and advocate on their behalf;

– Make recommendations to government and other organisations;

– Disseminate information and gain feedback on government policies; and

– Seek to improve conditions for residents and bring them together in a harmonious way.
