NEW CLOEY OWNERS KEEN TO DELIVER ‘QUALITY-FOCUSED COMMUNITY PUB’

The Clovelly Hotel is an iconic Eastern Beaches institution. Perched right next to the beach, it’s long been a place of rest and rejuvenation for hungry and thirsty locals. It’s a friendly, no-frills kind of place: you order and pay at the counter, and you might get a Resch’s with your chicken parma. All of […]

While most of the coastal repair work is complete following the devastation caused by the east coast low in June last year, the section of the coastal walkway between the Clovelly Bowling Club and Calga Reserve on the northern side of Waverley Cemetery remains closed.

TRIUMPHANT CHRISTMAS PRESENT APPEAL A HIT WITH THE KIDS

Having a kid sick in hospital is probably the hardest thing a parent can go through. It’s even harder when that time in hospital coincides with the holiday period – what kid wants to spend Christmas day in a hospital gown instead of their swimmers? Local hero (and previous Beast cover star) Mal ‘Wardy’ Ward […]

LOCAL GIRLS LOOK TO LIGHT UP BOWL-A-RAMA

Skateboarding has long been thought of as a man’s game. From all-boy avatar options on skating video games, to skater characters in movies being 99 per cent dudes, to the fact that ‘dangerous’ sports have historically been linked to aggressive masculinity, the message has been clear: skateboarding isn’t meant for girls.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE – A SUBJECT THAT RAISES PEARL’S HACKLES

One doesn’t normally associate the horrors of domestic violence with designer handbags and luxury personal care items.

LOCAL BLOKES STRIP OFF THE CONSTRAINTS OF MACHO MASCULINITY

Be a man. Grow a pair. Boys don’t cry. The expectations surrounding masculinity both within Australia and the world are harmful not only to the women who are victims of male assault, but also to men who are expected to conform to stereotypes of violent masculinity, and to eschew their emotional and mental health.

LOCALS HAVE NO SAY IN MERGER

What’s going on with the so-called ‘Super Council’ and the pending amalgamations and why are they even going ahead? Since Premier Mike Baird issued the edict that local councils must prove themselves fit to stand alone or merge, neither Randwick nor Waverley Council – which have both agreed to merge – have provided any insight […]

FLICKERFEST SET TO LIGHT UP THE PAVILION WITH A STELLA RANGE OF SHORTS

Short films are a very particular art form. They belong to a medium that does not receive very much funding or attention, but when done well, they are able to move an audience to tears or send them into fits of uproarious laughter within the space of a few minutes. That is no mean feat. […]

MAROUBRA BODYBOARDERS TAKE THREE FOR THE SEA IN SUMBAWA

Bodyboarding, environmentalism, and Eid are not three things you usually find in the same story. And yet, as it turns out, they actually work in perfect harmony. Back in the 1980s and early 1990s, the bodyboarding scene in the Eastern Suburbs was really kicking, with the Eastern Suburbs Bodysurfers Club hosting regular contests and encouraging […]
