The team at COVERED. travelled up the hill to the vibrant Sydney Rd shops at Fairlight to find out what locals love doing to connect with the Northern Beaches community.
Barry & Merja
We love getting out and about on the Northern Beaches. We recently moved to Narrabeen and we are embracing the walking tracks around Narrabeen Lake and kayaking and walking along the beach. We try to keep fit by going to the gym three times a week
I like to connect with the local community by supporting local businesses. I often walk down to have breakfast and dinner in Manly and I come to Fairlight for coffee and to buy my meat. I also play golf at Manly Golf Club and meet many locals there.
As a local butcher I regularly meet new people who live in the Manly/Fairlight area. The Fairlight Butcher donates and supplies meat to the Manly Women’s Shelter, that provides crisis accommodation to homeless and at-risk women. It’s a powerful way to care for others and shine a light on issues of domestic violence.

As a new mum living in Manly, I see great value in mothers groups where I can meet with other women who are at the same stage of life as me. I am currently involved with Northern Beaches Multiple Birth Group and other local groups.

A major connecting point for us with the community is our Butchers Café in Fairlight. Through our café we connect with many other locals and get to know them. We also support Manly West School, Harbord Devils Cricket Club and sell hessian sacks where the profits go to Bear Cottage
