ATTENTION PARENTS OF WOODY POINT, GBS AND SURROUNDING AREAS

There will be construction taking place at Bonne Bay Academy over the next two weeks for the purpose of replacing the weeping tile around the high school portion of the school. Fencing is being put in place for the protection of the children using the playground and for the workers.

The basketball court is fenced off and will be off limits and an area of the parking lot is fenced off as well.

Safety of the children is the number one priority for the NL English School Board, the Contractors and the Town of Woody Point.

Please strongly advise your children to not go beyond the fencing. The holes that will be dug will be approximately 10 feet deep at some points and we do not wish to have anyone fall in these holes.

The playground area will be remaining open for the children.

We thank you for your time and consideration of this matter.

 I would like to provide you with a small list of do’s and don’ts for garbage placement at the curb.

  1. No metals to be placed at the curb.   If you have metal waste there is a drop-off site next to the Town Hall in Woody Point where you can drop off your metals such as washers, dryers, hot water tanks, fridges, etc.  This drop-off site is for the residents of Woody Point only.
  2. If you have large items such as old beds, bureaus, couches, wooden tables, chairs, etc. the contractor will take these at the curb with the regular garbage.
  3. The contractor will allow boxes and small bags such as kitchen catchers to be placed for pick-up, along with the regular full size garbage bags.
  4. Please place your garbage at your boundary line.
  5. The contractor will be providing a 4 yard bin that can be rented by residents and businesses for dumping of construction material on job sites.  The cost to rent is $50 per bin load. The contractor will drop the bin off to you and will remove when finished.  If the bin has to be dumped before the job is finished it will be dumped on Tuesdays when the contractor is in town.

The Buddy Foundation

We have started a foundation for the stray cats in our town..it is called “The Buddy Foundation”…so named for a dog named Buddy who belonged to one of our residents, he recently passed away after 18.5 years, he was a gentle, loving Labrador who had his fair share of run-ins with neighboring cats..lol.

The Buddy Foundation will provide financial assistance to help with the cost of spaying/neutering cats.  It will also be used to purchase supplies for the cats, such as materials needed to build a cat shelter/feeding station.  Once the shelter is in place the foundation will provide ongoing support.

If anyone would like to volunteer a little of their time to help with checking on the cat shelter/feeding station please call the town office at 709-453-2273. Also if you would like to make a donation please address your donations to “The Buddy Foundation.”  Our first donation was actually given by Buddy’s owner, she paid for a female cat spaying in memory of Buddy…Thanks so much Leila and Aiden….greatly appreciated!!!

In regards to payment options, you can drop by the office with a cash donation; send a check or money order;  call us and we can process MasterCard or Visa over the phone.

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for the reminder! I had meant to post this earlier…hope this helps. If you have any questions let me know.

      Town Manager

    Great news about the recycling program!

  3. L Dolmage says:

    CONGRATS Jacqueline. My hope is that the town will be cleaned-up. The garbage
    left in fields consisting of disabled vehicles and other things is not very attractive in
    such a beautiful area. The hills and water are so relaxing and inviting . It would be
    much more appealing to the tourists and the local residence. I am a former resident
    and visit yearly. Wishing you all a great year and much success. L Dolmage

  4. Woody Point says:

    Thank you for your kind words about Woody Point. Clean-up around town is an ongoing issue that the council is addressing on a daily basis. We are actively promoting a cleaner and tidier town to all our residents. It is a beautiful area and we want to enhance on that beauty.

    Regards,
    Jacqueline
