We meet at 10am each Monday at the Community Hall.

We have very broad tastes! Excerpts from musicals, opera arias, popular songs from throughout the ages, all form part of our repertoire.

Wallis Spirit Dragons is based at Coomba Park, on the Mid-North Coast of NSW, and actively encourages participation from everyone including the Pacific Palms and Smiths Lake areas of Wallis Lake. Our training takes place in Paling Fence Bay on the beautiful Wallis Lake.
The Wallis Spirit Dragons is a mixed-gender, open age, friendly club.
Paddlers consist of those keen to participate in regattas and others who just want to get fit and have fun without the pressure of competitions and the club has plenty of room for all motivations.
There are usually three or four sessions scheduled per week however, the number of participants can vary depending on paddler commitment. Bad weather also has an impact, especially in winter.
ASHOW (After School Heroes on Wallis) is an after school program for primary age children from Coomba and district, operating each Wednesday afternoon of the school term. It began in August 2007 and is run (and mostly funded) by Coomba volunteers. ASHOW’s objectives are to connect local children to their community, to help develop life skills and to provide opportunities for children to participate in a range of activities they may not otherwise experience. The afternoon consists of a variety of sports and/or games, a slap-up afternoon tea and a pre-nominated activity for the day. These range from cooking anything from hot dogs to scrambled eggs; craft: everything from making kites, necklaces, tiaras and crowns, sand painting or painting a rainbow serpent or a local activity such as counting crabs down at the salt marsh, swimming, learning basic circus skills, being visited by Coomba RFS or our Forster police liaison officer.
We plan each term’s activities ahead of time and email the information to parents and our local school, Pacific Palms. The School and ASHOW work closely together in the children’s best interests.
This year we have been averaging 21 kids and 8 volunteers each week. If you have a child who may like to attend, or you would like to volunteer, please call Felicity Carter on 0411 566 593.
Pacific Palms Garden Club a limited member group of gardeners both new and experienced who get together every month for various activities including visiting gardens, buying and swapping plants and seeds and learning about permaculture to mention a few. With a monthly newsletter and their own website there is a wealth of information, especially local knowledge.
There are several book clubs in the area but always room for more if they are full. We explore various genres whilst reading in bed, by the pool, by the lake, surrounded by nature, on the farm, listening to opera, birdsong, classical music, rock, pop and hiphop. We read during the day, at night, over lunch, alone, in company, with friends, family, with tea, coffee, champagne, wine, eating strawberries, supper or over breakfast. Then we gather and chat about our perceptions in a very lighthearted fashion but I confess the discussions can get very serious at times! Do join us!
Practice sustainable living?
Coomba Sustainable Living Group is a group of like minded people who enjoy sustainability - for the planet - and their wallets. There is no simple definition of 'sustainability'. It can be an idea, a property of living systems, a manufacturing method or a way of life. In fact, there may be as many definitions of sustainability as there are people trying to define it.

The Coomba Men's Shed was started by the current president, John Hewkins, and a handful of fellow enthusiasts in 2012. It now has 23 members and is based temporarily at 1770 Coomba Road while fundraising continues for a new shed approved for the community precinct in the village.
The shed's aims are to provide mateship and a community spirit for men of all ages, and an environment where they may participate in work projects for themselves and our area. It also offers the opportunity for members to develop skills they didn't know they had and even discover new ones. The shed has an impressive collection of hand tools and power tools and advice is always available to everyone.
Sessions are held every Thursday morning from 8.30 to noon. The annual subscription is $25 and there is a daily fee of $2 which covers morning tea. Inquiries to John Hewkins on 0438741485.
