The best of Bondi news linkage from around the web – quick links to my top Bondi news reads of the week

Head to this Perth Now article to read the details of last weekend’s stoush between the boys in blue and the volunteers – I really hope that they’ve cleared the air now as bad feelings between these two groups of great people is just disappointing and unnecessary.
2. News about new occupants of the beach front Pacific development

Head to this news.com.au story to find out how former Big Brother winner Tim Dormer responded to an article that referred to his figure as ‘portly’, and how his social media followers supported him – I often see Tim doing laps of the beach and he always looks very healthy to me; it shouldn’t really matter either way.

Head to the Reality Today website to see where Bondi’s Icebergs pool features in this list of the world’s ‘strangest pools’ (not sure I’ve ever thought of Bondi Icebergs as ‘strange’, but it didn’t make it near the top of the list so perhaps it’s not that strange after all).
