New Board Members Welcome

Two board members who have served City Quay for over 18 months have recently resigned, Audrey McCurley and Gianfranco Bucuzzi. It is very sad to see them go but as always in life, things change.

A board works best where there is a diverse range of ideas and opinions. The door has always been open to new members but we are now appealing for some fresh faces to bring along their own ideas and expertise to improve life for everyone at City Quay.

If you are interested, please drop a mail to

About her departure, Mrs McCurley said “It has been a pleasure being a part of the City Quay Board and I am proud of all we have accomplished in the past couple of years.”

Mr Bucuzzi added “The useful experiences and great challenges I have gained during my tenure has been beneficial to me, and I am fully grateful for the opportunity to serve the company and the residents of City Quay.”


Please be advised that arrangements have been made for the cleaning of all of the gutters along side the Casemates, starting 17th July 2019.

We would like to advise residents and their visitors who are parking their vehicles outside the Casemates, in this NON PARKING, area to please park in your allocated or visitors parking bays.

Please be aware that their will be falling debris from the gutters while this work is undertaken. City Quay will not be responsible for any vehicles damaged due to falling debris. Failure to adhere to our notice will hold up all our work and intentions and if necessary we can and will enforce a parking fine.

We will have cones and tape outside the Casemates to block off access.

Thank you for your cooperation and attention to this. If you have any questions regarding this project please consult with our site manager. James Roche.

Many Thanks

Mandarin Ducks enrapture City Quay residents

This morning residents observed two Mandarin Ducks. The Ducks were spotted last year on the City Quay lake but no one captured the picture.

We stood and watch the majestic creatures with its dazzling plumage, gorgeous and striking beak. It’s beak sets them apart from your average mallard and inspired its nickname ,”hot duck”.

The Mandarin duck is known to be one of the most beautiful ducks in the world. It is one of the few living creatures who don’t cause any environmental problems. In China and Korea, they symbolize faithfulness because they are monogamous birds, meaning they mate for life. That is why every bride receives a pair on her wedding day. The ducks have been spotted on our lake for the last couple of mornings: it makes you feel like a child again just looking.

The Mandarin Ducks were spotted in Sefton Park in January and originates over 4,500 miles away in China.

I hope everyone in their lifetime gets to see a Mandarin Duck – such an uplifting sight. Just remember one thing: if someone offers you a Mandarin Duck dish, don’t eat it, because it’s great to look at, but not to eat!

City Quay Water

Further updates will appear when available.

Bin Sheds – November 2018

This is a plea to City Quay residents.

Can you please be more diligent In the disposal of your waste. If the bins in a bin shed are full, could you please walk along to the nearest bin shed and dispose of your waste properly.


It is surprising how we do not seem to understand that our convenience is ending up in excess cost and health hazard to our residents. In addition to the risk of any injuries from split stuff like broken plastic or glass that our maintenance team have to deal with.

James and his team had to spend time clearing and cleaning the above shed yesterday. Time they should been spending on more urgent matters.

We need to make sure we know proper disposal rules and put our trash in the correct bins. Please flatten boxes before dumping and keep our bin lids shut.


Residents need to take the initiative to correct others when they see improper disposal. Warnings will be issued to residents who are found to dispose wrongly and fines will be issued when caught recurrently.

We must keep our surroundings neat and clean to help us live healthy and better lives and for the betterment of City Quay.
