We have been blown away by the incredible effort from the owners of Echo Hills Estate who donated over $18,000 to Community Northern Beaches through the sale of 500 cases of quality chardonnay and shiraz. Northern Beaches’ couples; Sarah and Steve Day, Cath and Glen Butler, and Megan and David Epper, are the driving force behind Echo Hills Estate,

When COVID-19 hit Sydney, 28 year old local Georgie lost her job in the fitness industry. Georgie made a conscious decision to use her time help others rather than sit around and wait for new opportunities to come to her. She came up with a plan to walk 24 hours straight, from Queenscliff to Shelley Beach in Manly.
On the 27 July, 2020 Community Northern Beaches entered a new phase of service to the Northern Beaches’ community when it relocated to 52 Raglan Street, Manly. After decades at Wentworth Street, in a building that has now outlived its usefulness, we have moved to a modern, well-designed office that will offer even more opportunity for our staff, volunteers, partners and clients.
We at Echohill Vineyard have carefully matured some fabulous Chardonnay and Shiraz since 2012, and to help out some of the many people that are suffering hardship from the COVID19 virus we are offering the chance to acquire these wines that normally sell for $200 per case (and are rated 90-92 by James Halliday) to you for only $50 per case, delivered to your door (Sydney Area Only). All proceeds after delivery costs will go straight to the Community Northern Beaches to help support their Homeless Outreach Program.
On Friday 12 October 2019, Community Northern Beaches held their 2018 Annual General Meeting. A warm and friendly atmosphere prevailed as those who care about the organisation came together to cover official business, thank some of the organisations and people who have supported them during the past year and elect the Management Committee for the year ahead.
As manager of the Northern Beaches’ largest community hub, John’s role is a diverse one including responsibility for the strategic and everyday management of the centre. Starting the day before the centre’s doors open allows time to focus on admin so that when the doors are open, his focus is on people. In John’s words “people come before paper”. He chose to join the not-for-profit sector as he finds working in smaller, under resourced environments forces him to think outside the box, act with agility and a strength of purpose.
Today at Manly Community Centre we had the official launch of our new name, Community Northern Beaches. James Griffin MP, Member for Manly cut the ribbon to mark the occasion.
