Proposed Mobile Phone Base Station for Archerton

As part of the Mobile Black Spot Programme, a new 3G/4G telecommunications network base station is proposed for 3324 Tatong-Tolmie Road, Archerton.  The proposed facility will comprise a 35 metre high monopole, four omni antennas on a headframe and associated works, cabling and minor earthwork and ancillary equipment within the proposed shelter.

The location of the tower at Archerton has come through requests from the Archerton community and Council for more reliable mobile communications.

Paver Walk Unveiled at St Josephs’ Catholic Church

St Josephs' Catholic ChurchThe recent 131st Tolmie Sports Day also included the official unveiling of the historic paver walk outside St Josephs’ Catholic Church.  The paver walk was the culmination of many months of research and communication with past and present members of the Tolmie community by members of the Friends of St Josephs’ church committee.  Funds raised from the sale of pavers have gone towards the continual refurbishment of the Catholic Church in Tolmie.

A large number gathered on the day and witnessed a variety of speeches from those involved in the paver walk as well as the official blessing by Fr Joseph O’Shea.
