Our next community services is on next Sunday (the 2nd Sunday of each Month) at 9.37am.

We hope you can join with us on the 8th March. It’s been too long.

Encourage your neighbours to come with you.

For those who may be worried the ceiling will fall in….  for what ever reason, can I encourage you to join us for our community morning tea - a yummy morning tea at that. Be there at 11am. You don't need to come to the service to join us for morning tea.

There is always a lot to catch up on with local news & events and its truly is wonderful seeing the community getting together. Our concerns for Herons Creek Rd between the cemetery and Kew has seen a good response from Port Macquarie Hasting Council. It was dangerous with so many potholes. We encourage you to ring the Port Macquarie Hasting Council and lodge a complaint, if the road deteriorates again. (remember to be nice as those who handle your calls are truly beautiful folk who do care). It seems that when we raise any concerns the first thing council does is to see how many complaints they have received by phone, email or letter. It's really worth voicing your concerns. We also understand that Old School road is just as bad if not worse. So we value your input as we as a community address these issue.

so a big thank you to PMHC for listening & responsing to our concerns , and another big thank you to all who wrote, email & called. Well done.

Anyway, getting back to our community morning teas, it truly matters that you make it to our monthly morning teas. And you don't need to be religious to join us at our monthly church service - a perfect place to pray for our local community & mix with real down to earth folk.

Don't forget to look upthe news page on our Cemetery care day - working bee 0n Saturday 21 March. Lets make it a day we as a community come together to show some pride in our district.

We are slowly progressing with our new toilet upgrade too. More to come. Can you lend a hand??

All Herons Creek residents & friends are welcome.

There is always a lot to catch up on with local news & events and its truly is wonderful seeing the community getting together. Our concerns for Herons Creek Rd between the cemetery and Kew has deteriorated worse than ever with all the rain. It was dangerous before the recent rain. We encourage you to ring the Port Macquarie Hasting Council and make a complaint.

Herons Creek Heritage is working tirelessly to unearth new information about the history of our district. With the aid of community members sharing what they know with us, we are able to in turn share these discoveries. The following tells about a number of WWI soldiers with connections to Herons Creek, including Ernest Leslie Baker (title photo) who was awarded the Military Medal. Please click read more.

Recently I (Martin) received a letter from our local state member for the seat of Port Macquarie, Lesley Williams.

Lesley also sent similar letters to Les & Daphne Latham and Bill & Betty Boyd.

It was a real surprise to read the letter and then a copy of the Hansard.

Lesley, thank you for your kind words, and thank you for making the commitment to attend a number of events in Herons Creek over the past few years.

 Many might not know that when Lesley learnt of the community concerns regarding the pending closure of Herons Creek Road, back in 2013, Lesley acted quickly & arranged urgent talks with the Minister of Roads & Maritime which eventually led to keeping Herons Creek Road open for incoming traffic from the south.
