Crabbing mad at Frontbeach

Frontbeach Taphouse and Restaurant thought they would cheer you up with the end of summer with Crab March. Crab March will be four-courses of crab, including a Blue Swimmer Crab omelette, a Soft Shell Crab bao, Singapore chilli Mud Crab and an Alaskan King Crab. Guests will be supplied with the tools and protection – bibs and mallets – to get messy. Bookings are required and the whole table must order the crab. The Corks Crew has chosen the wines to match and the first 10 bookings will get a bottle of wine for free! Crab March will run from March 1-28. Crab March is $60pp. Phone 5261 9752 to book your place.

Saturday 3/3

Women take to the water

The Surf Coast Longboarders Club is hosting an event to bring women together to celebrate, compete and have a fun day in the water. The Wild Women on Water (WWOW) will be held this Saturday at Point Impossible, Torquay. The event is open to women of all ages, with a choice of competitive longboard divisions, a non-competitive expression session and for the first time, a short board division. Participants can look forward to a Welcome to Country ceremony, followed by yoga on the beach and a massage therapist on hand to limber up participants between events. To enter as a competitor or participant, download an entry form on the website surfcoastlongboardclub.com or via the Surfcoast Longboarders Club Facebook Page or email [email protected]. Tickets are $30 individual or $40 family entry.

Sunday 4/3

Fixing bits and bobs

Repair Café Surf Coast is set to expand this year, spreading from its regular base at Aireys Inlet Community Hall, and venture to Bellbrae and Anglesea. The community-driven initiative sees volunteers share their skills and fix items. By doing so, they are helping people resist the throwaway culture and diverting waste from landfill. Repair Cafes are a global movement, with meetings held in locations across the world to help promote a sustainable future with less waste. This Sunday the Repair Cafe will be at Bellbrae Hall, located at 90 School Road from 10am-2pm. For more information, email [email protected].
