TENNIS CLUB NEEDS YOUR VOTE Recently, the NSW Government offered grants to worthy organisations for improvements to their facilities. Stanwell Park Tennis Club has applied for a grant to replace our dilapidated old fencing. Once accepted, the public can vote on the projects they feel are the most worthy. Voting is open to the public from 15 July to 15 August and you can vote for 3 to 5 projects in your local electorate. To vote, go to MyServiceNSW Account, register your account (you will be asked for your Medicare number) or visit a Service NSW Centre. Any enquiries can be made by calling 13 77 88. A Voter Fact Sheet is also available on the website. We urge you to register your vote. Stanwell Park Arts Theatre has applied for a grant to upgrade the CWA Hall, another worthy application. I know they and we would be grateful for your vote, so our local facilities are improved and enhanced for the benefit of us all. Thank you to you all for your help. – Lyn Fetherston, Treasurer, Stanwell Park Tennis Club GARRAWARRA – WORTHY OF HERITAGE OR DEMOLITION? Earlier this year the Helensburgh District Historical Society was advised that the old TB Garrawarra Hospital is proposed for demolition. The society was also advised that no public participation was sought under Notification of Activity issued pursuant to Clause 14 of the ISEPP (association with demolition of buildings at Garrawarra Centre). The society at that stage was

advised that submissions questioning the proposal had been written by Wollongong City Council and the National Trust. At the time of this article going to press, no further information has been gained. Is it possible to preserve the heritage value of both the old TB Garrawarra Hospital buildings and cemetery, containing over 2000 graves? Council had consultants prepare a Conservation Management Plan for the Garrawarra Cemetery site in 2012 that assessed the Garrawarra Hospital Precinct as having state heritage significance and recommended the precinct for State Heritage Listing. Following a 2012 resolution of Wollongong City Council, the Garrawarra Hospital Precinct was nominated by Council for inclusion on the State Heritage Register in 2015. NSW Heritage Council replied in November 2017, not making any conclusions on the significance of the site due to: an objection from NSW Department of Health; and lack of resourcing. Public participation is needed for any action to conclude the stalemate, probably by forming a group “Friends of Garrawarra”. We don’t want significant local history wiped off the map. Come on, everyone – let’s save this important Garrawarra Hospital Precinct from the bulldozers! – Jim Powell, President of Helensburgh & District Historical Society

THE LINE THAT DIVIDES OUR SCHOOL STUDENTS Naomi Burley, Helensburgh Public School P&C president, has written a letter to the 2508 community, asking for help.

Families residing in the 2508 area have for many years been supplied high school enrolment forms from the Department of Education, which offered the choice to enrol their children at either Heathcote High School or Bulli High School as their local school. This recognised the unique location, and ties of the 2508 community to both the north and south. This has been ideal for families with strong ties to southern Sydney as well as those with family, work or other commitments toward Wollongong, safe in the knowledge that the wellbeing of their children and family planning had sensibly been acknowledged by the Department of Education with a straightforward local enrolment process. Parents at Helensburgh Public School were surprised when they were notified on 10th April 2019 that students living in Helensburgh, Stanwell Tops and Darkes Forest were in fact, apparently,

‘NO CHANGE IN ENROLMENT AREAS’

On April 15, 2508 requested information on a ‘historical error’, possibly dating back to the 1980s, that led Helensburgh parents to believe their children had the choice of two high schools: Bulli or Heathcote. On June 21, a NSW Education Department spokesperson issued this response: “NSW public schools have specific local enrolment areas. These areas are determined by the Department of Education. Students enrol in public schools based on their home address. “All public schools ensure there are enough places for students in their local enrolment area. “Schools may accept enrolments from outside their area if places are available, a provision which

6­ / 2508­/ JULY

zoned for local enrolment at Heathcote High School only, while those families living in Otford or Stanwell Park were zoned for Bulli High School. It has been acknowledged by the Department of Education that for many years families have had, in practice, the choice of both Heathcote High School and Bulli High School as their local school. As a P&C representing the parent community we are concerned the Department of Education has removed the long-accepted practice without adequate consultation with stakeholders. There is no critical reason to remove this choice. Restricting students to apply as out-of-area enrolments to Bulli HS leaves them vulnerable to changes in DET ideology around quotas in the future. Social and community connections vary for families in our area. Some families have stronger ties to the Illawarra, while others are more engaged with the Sutherland Shire. The wellbeing of ALL our kids matters. To restrict the option to enrol at either Bulli High School or Heathcote High School would be to the detriment of these students, their wellbeing, and their community networks. We are asking that the Minister for Education, The Hon Sarah Mitchell, to officially endorse the option of two local high schools for our area as has been the case for over 30 years. How can you help? Let the people who can change this policy know why this is important to our community and your family. Write to the Minister for Education, Sarah Mitchell https://www.nsw.gov.au/yourgovernment/ministers/minister-for-educationand-early-childhood-learning/ Contact our Local MP Mr Lee Evans: 9548 0144. Subscribe to the P&C for email updates: pandchps@gmail.com There will be more information in the next issue regarding a community meeting with all the relevant stakeholders. 2508 applies across NSW including in the Helensburgh and surrounding areas. “There has been no change in the enrolment areas for Bulli High School or Heathcote High School, but Helensburgh Public School has acknowledged that for some years incorrect information was provided to parents of Year 6 students preparing to enrol them in high school. “This error was acknowledged and apologised for in a letter emailed to all the school’s Year 6 parents on April 10. “The Director, Educational Leadership, Wollongong North, met Helensburgh Public School Year 6 parents on April 30 to explain the situation, and again with the school’s P&C on June 11.” 2508

PLAN FOR SUCCESS

FAMILY LAW BASICS By Lynda Babister.

Family Law – Business, Children and School Holidays With the beginning of a new financial year, you may have decided to embark on a new life, without your partner. Here are some of the basics you need to know about family law. Family law is divided into four sections – financial settlement, children, child support, and divorce. There are a number of options available to assist you to divide property and organise parenting following breakdown of a relationship. They include counselling, negotiation, mediation, collaborative practice or going to Court. Financial settlement relates to division of the matrimonial pool of assets. If you have a business you will need to make decisions regarding who continues to run the business, or whether the business needs to be sold and the proceeds divided. When deciding a financial settlement the Court must arrange a final division of property. If you decide you need to have a continuing financial

8­ / 2508­/ JULY

relationship (not including child support), you may need to use other methods resolve your dispute. When children are involved, you must keep the children’s best interests in mind when coming to an agreement. Aside from their day-to-day living arrangements, some of the important decisions you will need to make are where the children will spend school holidays and other important event days (Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays). You can either record your agreement in a Parenting Plan or apply to the Court for Consent Orders. Child support is the ongoing payment of the expenses of the children. You can have the Department of Human Services Child Support Agency arrange this for you, or you can come to an agreement between yourselves. Divorce is usually the last area that you finalise, for a few reasons. There are deadlines after divorce. You can only make an application in the Court for financial settlement within a year of your divorce. And you have to wait at least one year after separation before you can file your application for divorce. If you would like assistance please contact Lynda Babister at Babister Legal, 0418 604 098 or email lynda@babisterlegal.com.au. 2508

So much fun. I am 15 now, turning 16 mid-August. I’m not sure my skiing has taken off but it has definitely changed a lot since then. In 2015 I was skiing with my friend Maddie Jones, just learning how to jump 5-10ft jumps. Straight airs, 360s etc. Towards the end of that year, I tried my first ever front flip. It felt amazing. In 2018, I joined the Australian park and pipe team. Getting to travel a lot which is fun. Still hanging with Maddie Jones and now focusing on the Freeski World Tour, which includes Big Air, Slopestyle and Halfpipe. Tell us what your training involves. I have a scholarship with NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) so my training is quite heavy. I have a full-time strength and conditioning coach and nutritionist. I do a lot of leg, core and aerobic work, focusing on strength and short bursts of fitness. I train on snow during the winter in blocks, say a four-week block and that will include 5/6 days on snow for five hours a day. Then we take big periods off. All in all, I ski around 150 days a year.

COVER FEATU RE

MIA RENNIE

Four years ago, 2508 ran a cover story on local snow stars, kids who’d grown up by the beach but were forging ahead as snowboarders and skiiers. Last month we caught up with one of those Snow Stars for another cover shoot at Stanwell Park Beach. Mia Rennie is now 15, attends Illawarra Sports High and is doing fantastically well on the international circuit. Last month, Mia kindly took time – in between homework, long-haul flights and competing in Japan – to answer 2508’s questions. In 2015, you were one of the ‘Snow Stars’ on our July cover. How has your skiing career taken off since then? Oh wow that was my first ever photo for skiing.

10­ / 2508­/ JULY

How do you juggle high school and your sport? Illawarra Sports High School are amazing, I am on a surfing scholarship with the school and they provide me with amazing flexibility. My Program Manager is Geoff Latimer, a seriously amazing guy and I work with Geoff weekly from anywhere in the world, he always seems to be awake to take my calls. We have a learning hub so I can dial in anytime and get some facetime. I spend around 12 weeks a year in the classroom, the rest is all remote. To ensure I am catching up, I did most of year 10 when I was in year 9, now, I am in year 10, I am doing a business degree which will aid me with year 11 and 12. I enjoy school … I received the Year 9 Academic Award, would have been impossible without Illawarra Sports High. When, where and why did you start skiing? Mum and dad were Ski Patrollers in the little resort called Mt Selwyn. I started skiing at the age of 3. Whilst mum and dad would fix broken bones, I would head off into the trees and build jumps with my brother Kai and my little sister Pip, Kai started skiing at 3 and Pip was 2. Selwyn gave us so much freedom, you basically can’t get lost, it is so much fun as a kid. We would do 40 days a season from the age of 3. When I turned 12, I felt like I needed to find some bigger runs. We moved to Perisher and Perisher has been my home resort since 2015. What inspired you to take it to a competitive level? Oh, I have no idea. The first comp I ever watched live was the Red Bull Road Gap at Charlotte Pass when I was 11, mum and dad were Ski Patrolling for the event. I sat on a rock and just watched amazed. I spent the next two hours following the


pros around the terrain park, pretending I was with them. It was crazy... maybe that was the inspiration. I entered some comps at Perisher when I was 12 and did quite well. I won my first National Title at 14 for Halfpipe and took a series of 1sts in the USA in 2017 and 2018. What do you love most about skiing? Freedom. Being in nature. Every day is different. Sliding fast and hitting jumps. That is like nothing else. What’s the hardest part? New Tricks. I am in Japan right now and working on Double Cork 1080s. It is into an Airbag but it is completely terrifying. Actually so scary when I first try something new my knees are shaking, so spinning three times with a double cork to my feet with shaking knees is not easy. After the first try, it gets easier. Essentially, I crash about 20 times on a new trick before I land it 100%, so the idea of something new is always a grind. But that’s the sport. Got to push through.

“Just Land. I used to freak about this, now I have realised, upside-down, sideways, right side up, it’s all the same.”

25/06/2015 8:47 am

When you’re upside-down midair over the snow, what are you thinking? Just Land. I used to freak about this, now I have realised, upside-down, sideways, right side up, it’s all the same. We are pretty good as humans at wanting to survive, so we usually fall on our feet. I have landed on my head a few times. That is good motivation not to do it again. Somehow, I find my feet. What are your parents thinking? Dad takes photos when I compete, he says watching through a lens makes it seem less real, although he takes horrible photos of me in comps, I assume the camera is shaking as they are usually of just snow without me in the shot. He takes perfect photos of my friends, haha (no nerves). Mum is so brave, I always feel so strong and powerful when mum is around. She makes me feel like I can do it... the thing that scares me most, mum is pretty good at making me feel like it will be OK. It almost always is. Where have you travelled to this year and what achievements are you most proud of? I have travelled and travelled for the last 12 months to way too many places. Seems crazy, I try not to tell people as I sound like a snotty-nosed rich kid skier. The reality is quite different, although I do get a snotty nose from time to time, we are far from rich and we all battle to make ends meet and make this work. I have awesome sponsors and good support for travel from scholarships. Now I have set the scene, I have been to Utah, Colorado, California, USA, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden,

JULY / 2508 / 11


Italy, Norway and New Zealand. I am in Japan right now. All sounds a little hectic. My top pick is Italy, Livigno, so nice. I ate way too much bread. I am super proud of my results for the Junior World Champs in Sweden. 7th in Big Air. Social media – what’s your preference and why? Instagram. There is a huge community of international skiers, my idols and my competitors. So we can chat, watch, follow. It’s so cool. I stay in contact with friends through Snapchat. You were part of the Stanwell Park Public School skiing team. Where is that team now? Yeah, we had such an amazing team. Interestingly, from the Stanny/ Burgh area, we have six athletes, Matty Cox, Zali Offord, Oskar Schulz, Kai Rennie, Eve Dowley and Kye Chaplin, all on Australian Team Pathway programs. Hectic. Something in the salty water. Any advice for local kids wanting to take up snow sports? Don’t be afraid to start at a small resort. History tells us that the best skiers in the world, all started somewhere small, really small. Selwyn is affordable and great for early progression. If you want to hit jumps, find someone who has done it and do it together. Skiing is so technical so try and get the right advice from the start, bad habits are hard to break. We need more girls riding Park in Australia, if you are ever keen to learn, I am always happy to help girls learn Park & Pipe. Ping me on Insta. What does the 2019 season hold for you? I have a heavy 12 months of travel starting now. I am in Japan right now, get back to Australia and then head to NZ for the ANC Cup (Continental Cup) followed by the World Cup Halfpipe in Cardrona. I wrap up in NZ in early October and head to Saas Fee, Switzerland for three weeks training before heading to Modena, Italy for the World Cup Big Air early November. I come home for a small stint and then head to Beijing, China for World Cup Big Air and Slopestyle. I come home for Christmas and then head off to Calgary, Canada for

12­ / 2508­/ JULY

Air & Style/World Cup. After that, who knows. Hopefully back to Stanny for some surfing and hangs with Tia, Charlotte and my friends. We are two years out from the Beijing Winter Olympics so I am working on keeping my world ranking inside the top 30, I am sitting in 33rd right now on the world tour rankings, so I have some work to do leading into Beijing 2022. Who are your sponsors? Anyone you’d like to thank… My first ever coach Maddie Jones sticks by me through thick and thin, she taught me how to jump and we get to travel the world together now. My national Coach Leon Tarbotton has kept me safe and progressing for over three years now. Last season, I broke five sets of bindings and three sets of skis, K2 are my major ski sponsor and they keep me on snow no matter what happens, Mike Balfe from K2 is amazing, they also provide me with Full Tilt Ski Boots which are so good. Giro Goggles and Helmets are my oldest sponsor, supporting me now for 4 years, thanks, Steve and Sam. You guys rule. O’Neill has been super supportive and I recently joined Clif Bar as a brand ambassador. POW: I am an environmental ambassador for Protect Our Winters, working on climate change initiatives. Finally, mum and dad. I have such cool parents, we travel the world together and they make sure, we have dinner around the dinner table together, four nights a week, regardless of where we are. They constantly remind me this is about the journey… It’s never about medals or winning. It’s about much more than that. But medals are pretty rad, for me, I am chasing medals, lol.

325 FIRE STATION OPEN DAY By Jim Powell

This year’s Open Day in May at 325 Station Helensburgh was a very successful day for everyone involved. About 150 people including children, parents, grandparents, and individuals in the way of big boys and girls, who always had the dream of being a Firefighter, attended the Station throughout the day, from 10am to 2pm. Children enjoyed sitting in the Fire Engine, using the First Aid Reel, spraying water on the back lawn, looking over all the Fire Engine’s fire fighting and rescue equipment, and enjoying the free sausage sizzle provided by the local Firies at 325

Station. This was one of our largest gathering of community families we have had at this Station for a number of years, thanks to the beautiful weather, and the use of social media. All the Firies from 325 Station would like to thank those community families who attended for their keen interest in the workings of the Fire Brigade.The children, all of whom behaved impeccably, showed a keen interest in all the Station’s activities, and we hope to see them all here again next year. Thanks for all your support. From all the Firies at 325 Station Helensburgh 2508

NEW INTERIORS STORE Helensburgh’s Ayres family are co-owners of King & Ayres Interiors, which opened in Wollongong in June.

Two family-run Illawarra businesses – Pam and Shane King’s Urban Timber and Peter and Cindy Ayres’ PCA Furniture – have teamed up to open King & Ayres Interiors in Wollongong. Set in a renovated, post-industrial space at 3 Victoria Street, the new store features bespoke furniture, creative decor and art.

GREEN MACHINA LAWN CARE TIPS

Now is the time to start your lawn care service. Whilst not only are winter weeds – such as clover, winter grass, sedges and more – prevalent, the reason to start now is grubs and pests. During winter they go dormant under the surface, with eggs and larvae waiting for the warmer weather of spring (late) and summer to emerge. By starting now, we can use products that are safe to stop these pests from ruining your lawn. I have noticed several areas on the coast that have had grub/pest problems and those lawns, side-walks etc are struggling to fight back. We use a product range for Diseases, Grubs, Pest & Weed management. To begin, we use organic fertilisers, fertilisers that help build the strength of your lawn and with a strong root system, your lawns will thrive. We use Seaweed & Kelp enhancers to bring the colour into your grass. Our products rid you of all your weeds, and there are several to combat the amount of weeds in Australia, and they’ve all been proven safe to use by Chemicals Australia.

Geoff Warwick has saved thousands of trees from landfill.

TURNING TABLES By Heather Eiszele

Geoff Warwick’s family knew Helensburgh and its surrounds when it was thriving: 22,000 people, 17 pubs and six service stations. His father helped build the stone monument and mineral pool at Stanwell Tops and was taught how to make bow and arrows to hunt bandicoots by Aboriginal man Jackie Black of Kelly’s Falls. Geoff ’s grandfather was known as the last man to shoot someone in Helensburgh when he caught an intruder in the hen house in 1932. The man survived – the chickens did not. With the sale of the Warwicks’ four-acre bush furniture and firewood property on Lawrence Hargrave Drive, the book closes on nearly 100 years of colourful family history. For the past 30 years, Geoff has chopped wood and made beautiful tables from the massive logs delivered by arborists, councils and power companies that were destined for landfill. “It’s cheaper than paying tipping fees,” said Geoff. “When the RTA did all the tree lopping down Bulli Pass, the blokes reckon we saved them $240,000 in tipping fees.” Geoff knows his business is a “gold mine” but with his son John moving to Melbourne to pursue a career as a DJ, and his body worn out from years of labouring, he and his wife Donna will move to the far South Coast. “I’ll still do a few tables – I’ve got plenty of boards left and want to do as many as possible for the locals until we leave in November.”

16­ / 2508­/ JULY

Geoff started working at Symbio Wildlife Park when he was just eight years old, building sheds and maintaining equipment. “I still had to milk the cows before and after school.” At 15, he lied about his age and joined the DMR, working on a road crew. Geoff ’s dad, Eric, got a job in the mines when he was only 13 and built a shack out of old tar drums on the land across from what is now the Hindu Temple, where the infamous bank robber, Darcy Dugan, used to hide out. “The Mine’s manager told him ‘fence off what you want and I’ll give you a price for it’.” He ended up with eight acres. That was in 1920. “I said to Dad, ‘Why didn’t you fence off more?’ but he said he only had two rolls of wire and couldn’t afford more. It cost two Bob a roll in those days.” After Eric left the mines following an accident where 10 men were killed, he put the land to use. “We used to have 500 beehives here and we’d sell honey to the public,” Geoff said. “We had cows and a veggie garden – the only thing the old lady didn’t make was cheese.” These days Geoff walks with a cane following a car accident in 1994 when he broke his back. “I was a walking paraplegic and no one would give me a job,” he said. “I’d see the trucks going past with all these logs so I went and saw the tree-lopping blokes and asked them if they wanted a place to dump logs for free.” The self-taught mechanic, welder, metalworker and carpenter, with sparkling clear blue eyes and the whitest teeth of what’s left, is these days inspired by a unique piece of wood. “I think: ‘Now what can I make with that?’” 2508


THE ART OF WOOD

The Coastal Woodworks exhibition is another exciting addition to the Illawarra Festival of Wood, which will be back at Bulli Showground on October 12 and 13. In addition to all the exciting family-friendly elements on offer at this year’s even bigger and better Festival of Wood, local festival organisers and lovers of all things wood Suzanne and Stuart Montague are bringing together some of the most talented South Coast furniture makers, wood carvers and sculptors to show their wonderful work to the world for the first ever Coastal Woodworks exhibition. All tickets to this year’s festival include an exclusive invite to get up close to the work of some Australia’s finest artisans working with wood who’ll welcome you into their skilled and super-talented worlds as part of the exhibition. A diverse range of coastal designers and makers will come together as part of the exhibition to promote and encourage the growing market of woodworkers south of Sydney. The aim of the festival, now in its third year and attended by thousands of people of all ages from all over Australia, is to celebrate, preserve and promote the traditions of working with wood and

UPCYCLING IN THE SHED

Bohmer’s Tree Care regularly donates timber to Corrimal Men’s Shed, Clive Woodnutt (aka Bohmer) told 2515. “Any timber we can upcycle we give to them [the Men’s Shed] to reduce their outlay – because they’re self-funded and they have to raise funds, so we donate the material to them,” Clive said. Bohmer and Kevin Toombs, of Corrimal Men’s Shed, are pictured, at right, with one of their creations. “The objet d’art was a piece of wood that we chopped down at a school and they [the Men’s Shed] made it into a shelf and we took it back to the school as a gift so they’ve got something to remember the tree by.” Bohmer’s Tree Care donates wood to the Men’s Shed on “a regular basis”, Bohmer said. “When we’ve got anything of interest or any unusual pieces or shapes. You can see in the photo of that one – and the material that they’ve got on the shelf – were all made out of recycled timber. “We chopped down a jacaranda, we chopped down a eucalyptus and a patula, which is a Mexican pine, a weeping pine – so they’ve used three different types of timber on that. “We see each other two or three times a month – we might find something that’s pretty enough for them to use.” 2508

NF1 REPORT

By Warwick Erwin, convenor of Neighbourhood Forum 1 NF1 congratulates Sergeant Heath Rhind on his promotion and thank him for his work in the 2508 community and the connection he and the local Police team have made with our younger community members. Sgt Rhind has attended NF1 meetings during his three and a half years as team leader of the Thirroul-to-Otford patrol team and has very positively interacted with the local community. We wish him well. Community concern has been raised about vehicles parking in No Stopping and No Parking zones, especially the No Stopping around the pedestrian crossing in Walker St. It is illegal to even stop in these zones. Parking in Disabled Parking zones was also raised; these zones are in place to assist our community’s less mobile residents. Sgt Rhind pointed out that both offences bring a substantial fine and loss of demerit points. Charles Harder Park playground equipment replacement project has gone out to tender from Wollongong City Council and includes shade over the equipment, but does not include fencing. Email your local Councillors about this issue to help protect our littlest family members.

Another concern is the playground equipment’s design which has a play area in the drainage swale. Council has been asked to explain. Residents have been asked to report to Council and Police any motorised bike in the mountain bike and skills track at the back of Rex Jackson sports fields. This track is for non-motorised bikes only. The community, through the Helensburgh Off Road Cycle Club, obtained Council permission and built the track for all to enjoy. Let’s protect it. A development proposal for along Lilyvale Rd, from the corner of Weerong and Tabratong roads DA-2012/1480/A, is a modification of a DA rejected by council for numerous reasons including impact on flora and fauna. The area is zoned E3 Environmental Management and was referred to as Lady Carrington Estate South by Council, Southern Joint Regional Planning Panel and Planning. The applicant is listed as Ensile Pty Ltd. NF1 was asked if horse riders are required to pick up their horse’s poo – Council has been asked. Endeavour Energy is carrying out a Vegetation Program to maintain the safety and reliability of electricity supplies with WCC’s support – about 100 street trees in the north suburbs of Wollongong are affected. Property owners should have received a letter from Endeavour Energy if there are trees on their property impacted by the program. 2508

HOW TO SURVIVE WORKPLACE STRESS By Dr Susan Sumskis PhD, Nan Tien Institute Lecturer, Acting Head of Health & Social Wellbeing

Remember that workplace stress is often a positive form of stress. It is stress associated with potential for personal growth and is also a great teacher in firstly managing ourselves and then managing others. If we believe stress is a positive thing, it releases a cascade of physiological processes that are protective of our health state, rather than damaging. However, if we believe that stress is bad for us, our body will respond as if attacked and the protective processes will be impaired. Think positively about what you can get out of the challenges that invoke stress. Stress is a cascade of responses and feelings in the body that can be interpreted as anxiety or excitement; threat or opportunity. It’s your choice! To learn more about the importance of perspectives on stress, watch Kelly McGonigal’s TED talk on how to make stress your friend.

SMALL BUSINESS / SPECIAL FEATURE What do you think about the rise of shared offices and also group workspaces for entrepreneurs? Human beings are herd creatures. Safety in numbers is a deeply rooted bodily-based concept. If we are in a harmonious group, there are multiple health and wellbeing benefits. If we are in an inharmonious group, the challenges are very personally felt. The rise of shared offices/workspaces is usually an organisational choice. Having an individual choice to work in a shared or private space is important to the health of the individual. Extroverts and introverts in shared office spaces may prove challenging! Shared spaces, when collectively sought, offer spontaneity, creativity, humour and a more embodied experience at work. If you would like to learn more about humans as herd creatures, feeling safe in communities and how the state of our nation begins in our street, check out a podcast by Dr Hugh Mackay (a passionate advocate for what and how we teach at Nan Tien Institute) on Conversations with Richard Fidler, which is one of the most popular podcasts in Australia.

SYMBIO EXPANDS ITS KOALA PLANTATIONS By Jessica Harris

In light of National Tree Day, on July 28 , Symbio would like to raise awareness for how important Eucalypt trees are to one of our most iconic native animals, the koala. Not only do Eucalypt trees provide a home for koalas but they are also their main source of food. Symbio has four (soon to be five) Eucalypt Plantations within a 45-minute radius which are utilised to feed our 10 koalas. From these four plantations, we have 900 trees that include over 20 species including key species such as Forest Red gum, Cabbage gum, Swamp Mahogany and Grey gum. With the introduction of our 5th plantation we will gain an additional 250 trees. Our team cuts up to 300 branches from these

plantations each week, of which our koalas eat up to 500g of leaves each day. Despite popular belief, Eucalypt does not make Koalas drunk. Eucalypt contains high levels of toxins that take longer to digest, and koalas possess a special kind of bacteria in their stomach that helps break down these toxins. Koalas are crepuscular, so they are more active during dusk and dawn and sleep the rest of the day. To ensure our harvest is sustainable as possible, after the koalas have eaten their leaves, the remaining branches are fed to our browsing animals (kangaroos, goats etc) then processed through our chipper to provide mulch on the gardens, or a bulking material for our compost. It takes about 3 to 5 years to grow consistent trees to use for feed for the koalas. As our population grows, we are on the lookout for koala tree ‘Champions’ to allow us the use of their land (over 1000 sq/m) for us to maintain more sustainable plantations – please get in touch with us if you’d like to be one of those champions! 2508

‘A SCONE FOR A VOTE’

By Stanwell Park Arts Theatre communications officer Beth Farmer First, we would like to pay tribute to a true pillar of our community. She’s been local to Stanwell Park since the 1960s, and has seen generations of families come and, sometimes, go. Under her watchful gaze our town has grown to become a bustling, creative hotspot – home to a fantastic community, all of whom know her well and love her dearly. She supports every local venture: from theatre, music and pantomime, to markets, workshops, yoga and martial arts! She’s beautiful, charming and dignified. She brings joy to so many. Our CWA Hall. The beating heart of Stanwell Park. For a grand old dame she’s versatile – capable of hosting live music, yoga, a wedding and a play rehearsal, all in one weekend. She holds a special place in the history and heart of SPAT, having been our home since inception, and now we want to repay her years of loyal service. SPAT has sponsored an application for a My Community Grant to improve the amenity of the CWA Hall by: • adding a large, covered deck to the north side, that opens out onto the grassy area – perfect for those balmy summer evenings; • adding a mobility-accessible ramp around the

front of the hall to a new entry point – linking the entrance to the beautiful woodland setting; • adding new storage and a bigger backstage area with a new bathroom. The grants are allocated according to popularity within the State electorate (Heathcote), so if you live between Bulli, Bundeena and Menai we need you to vote. Voting is open between 15 July and 15 August. If you are aged 16+, get your Medicare Card (for proof of age), log in to your MyService NSW account and vote No.1 for Stanwell Park CWA project! You must choose 3-5 projects from an eligible list, but if you want Stanwell Park CWA project to win, you must give her your No.1 vote. Please vote – and remind your friends and family who live in the Heathcote electorate to vote as well! The CWA and SPAT will host an Open Day at the hall on Saturday, 27 July, 11am-1pm, with ‘a scone for a vote’! Take a peek at the plans, and get some delicious cakes and hot chocolate! 2508

A CENTURY AT GARRAWARRA

NSW Health is planning to demolish a large chunk of the old Garrawarra TB hospital at Waterfall – a decision that has involved no public participation. Yet the hospital remains an important heritage site – here Helensburgh & District Historical Society researcher Jenny Donohoe shares some of its long history. 1909-1913: It was named a ‘Hospital for Consumptives’. Proposals for the hospital and cemetery were planned and gazetted in 1907. Many patients sent to Waterfall, as it was known then, came from overseas hoping fresh air and a good diet would cure them. Not all patients died and many were discharged. Those who died that came from overseas in most cases left their families behind. In England it was believed that a move to Australia might cure the disease. TB being contagious, bodies were buried swiftly, with the local clergy in attendance. 1914-1957: It was named ‘Waterfall State Sanatorium for Tuberculosis’, becoming the principal hospital in the state for the treatment of consumptives, containing 370 beds. By 1919, Waterfall Sanatorium was the largest sanatorium in NSW and accommodated 788 patients (565 male/223 female). Patient numbers declined in the 1940s when more successful treatment was available, leading to the closure of numerous TB Hospitals within the state. The fate of the establishment looked uncertain until local resident and State Member Rex Jackson stepped in. 1958-1991: It was named Garrawarra Hospital after the closure of the Waterfall State Sanatorium with fewer than 100 patients remaining. Garrawarra Hospital was named by State Member Rex Jackson, after a campaign involving local communities to establish the hospital for the aged and chronically ill. Rex Jackson was invited to name the hospital and he suggested using ‘Gara’ coming from the Gara Estate, which was a farm

bordering the park and resumed in 1940s. The word ‘warra’ is from Illawarra. So it was initially spelt Garawarra, but through a bureaucratic bungle it was registered with two rs instead of one. 1992 to present: The Garrawarra Hospital became the ‘Garrawarra Centre for Aged Care’. Following a services review undertaken in 1991 to the year 2000, it was determined to change the name to the present Garrawarra Centre for Aged Care to reflect the present day and future diversified role of Garrawarra as a multi-purpose Aged Care Centre specialising in dementia, rehabilitation, respite and day care services. Garrawarra Cemetery was closed in the 1940s with a record number of more than 2000 burials, more burials than in the local Helensburgh Cemetery in 2006. Not all deaths at Garrawarra were buried in the cemetery and many families buried their loved one closer to home. Wollongong City Council inherited the Garrawarra Cemetery from State Government in the early 1960s. Sadly, not many headstones have survived and all markers have been destroyed by numerous bushfires that ravished the area. The cemetery is not open to the public due to lack of legal access and, more importantly, it is an unstable and problematic site for council, which has the responsibility for maintenance of all its cemeteries, including Garrawarra. In summary: Wollongong City Council made application for heritage listing on the old Garrawarra site, including the cemetery, only to have it opposed by NSW Health. 2508

— TENDING THE LAWN — A good lawn is like a marriage it needs care, and attention it’s ok to let it grow a while but be mindful that with each passing morn those long dew-burdened swards eventually sodden the ankles when crossing the yard to check for eggs or to hang the washing. But even if the dampness leaves you with cold feet be careful not to prune too hard for if you scythe the blades too short those long-sheltered stalks lose all protection they wither in the sun and die yellow on the ground. Still, even if you’ve over-pruned perhaps of urgency for other chores or for want of more frivolous pursuits, remember even sparse dry runners can sprout new life with a little care, and attention. Perhaps a gentle airing’s all that’s needed a loosening of soil for water to seep deep, drawing life from lusher patches. Perhaps a deeper turning of the soil is needed to unearth the barren patches, and amputate those lifeless limbs, then re-seed with blood and sweat and bone and even seeming-dead parcels can be revived with a little care, and attention. So, for a lawn that grows strong and green and lush be mindful not to let it grow unchecked or to cut too deep when at last you pay attention and don’t ignore those dying patches for if the soil dries impenetrable no grass grows.

THE PET SET

Heading away on holidays? Helensburgh’s Karen Bestel offers a dog-walking service and also cares for all sorts, from cats to chooks. Karen shares tips for pet owners. Since 2006 Karen’s Pet Care Service has been providing professional, quality care, giving your pets the care they deserve. Demand has greatly increased for our regular walking service as busy owners still want to best for their beloved family dog. On private walks we have an on-leash policy at all times and give each dog the attention or walking training they need. We use your walking equipment to ensure familiarity and comfort. It’s important to use correct and comfortable

walking equipment. The balance harness is our pick. It offers flexible leash attachments, using front and back rings, with the front rings providing attachment under their chin, making it less strain on the carer and dog. They’re a comfortable and safe harness, with no pressure on the neck and can be bought via local trainer soniasayssit.com.au. I’m so often spotted walking that many aren’t aware I care for all pet types. Chooks, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, snakes are among our popular pets, to name a few! These animals and their enclosures are often impossible to transport, so home care is best. I care for many cats that have never been outdoors. At home they have their familiar surrounds, space to move freely and are not forced to interact with other animals or strange situations. For outdoor dogs or cats, we offer additional touches, for example, we’ll secure them inside at night and let them out the next morning. With 14 years’ experience, I take pride in how happy and settled animals are while in our care. A consultation before every new booking is included as part of our quality care. YOUR ESSENTIAL PET CHECKLIST PRIOR TO HOLIDAYS: • Ensure entry keys work and note any special entry/exit requirements, eg alarms • Ensure food is kept fresh and in an easily accessible area/away from sun or rain • Extra food and water bowls left with food • Correct, secure and undamaged walking equipment. • Existing health issues/habits/ anxieties we should be aware of • Emergency local contact, vet details and your best means of contact when away • Animal carriers for cats, rabbits etc for emergencies • Cleaning products as required. n Call Karen on 0419 432 482 or visit www.karens petcareservice.com.au.

#RETHINKCIDER

There’s a new hashtag in town. Darkes Glenbernie Orchard’s Jo Fahey reports. Apple cider is so much more than what we think. If you associate it with ‘sweet and sickly’, just for teenagers, then we’d encourage you to rethink it and try local craft cider made from real apples! Give some craft cider a chance to show you its versatility and the difference that using fresh local apples makes! It will taste better and different from the cider you may have tried based on concentrates, added sugar and flavourings. LET’S CELEBRATE AND # RETHINKCIDER! • Our Darkes Cider Howler, for example, can be enjoyed at a number of small local restaurants and is especially nice fresh from tap. • Why not try it locally at Helensburgh Hotel or Reub Goldberg Brewing in Tarrawanna! • If you find an interesting cider fact about real cider and wish to share it on social media, we are encouraging people to use the hashtag #rethinkcider • Cider is awesome served in a beautiful glass rather than direct from the stubby. Try using a champagne glass.

• Muddle other fresh fruit in your cider to add a different flavour, rather than buying premixed flavoured cider. • Try warmed cider with spice for a warming drink in winter – cinnamon, star anise, cardamom, vanilla pod and cloves work well. • Pair cider with a variety of foods. Try with pasta, pizza, Thai or Indian. • Try using cider in a cocktail. • There’s a cider for every occasion. Cider can be dry, sweet or medium. • Any apple can make cider – it’s the apples you choose that will determine what the final flavour will be like. SAVE THE DATE: COMING FARM EVENT DAYS Cider Sunday – postponed until September Apple Pie Day – 25 August 80 years of Orcharding Celebration Fest – November For more information, visit www.darkes.com.au 2508

CLUB REPORTS HELENSBURGH GUIDES

Guides face the Masterchef Challenge! Publicity officer Heather McNaughton reports. Helensburgh Girl Guides have been putting their culinary skills to the test over the past few weeks as they have undertaken a series of Masterchef Challenges. The challenges have taken place over several weeks, commencing with an individual taste test, where the girls were asked to identify a number of different herbs, spices and vegetables, including cinnamon, capsicum, parsley, mint and leek. The two guides with the highest scores earned the position of team captain, and each was asked to select one of the named ingredients to be used in the team competition the following week. The chosen ingredients were parsley and mint. The next week, the teams were formed, and each team leader chose a recipe for their team to create using both of the selected ingredients. The selected recipes were linguini with lemon, parsley and mint and cucumber, mint and feta salad. Jobs were allocated to each team member, and tables were laid in preparation for the final presentation to the judging panel of willing parent volunteers. All the girls demonstrated great teamwork throughout the activity. Many learned new culinary skills, while a few even showed an interest in repeating their recipe at home at a later date – much to the delight of their parents! Both dishes were a huge success, and scored highly on both presentation and flavour, however, in final scoring, the linguini won by just one point, primarily due to its higher level of difficulty. The win gives the team an as-yet undisclosed advantage heading into the next week’s challenge, which the girls are eagerly anticipating. 2508

HELENSBURGH VIEW CLUB By Mary Kitson, publicity officer

We are a service club supporting the Smith Family and their Learning for Life Programme for disadvantaged children in Australia. We meet every 3rd Tuesday of the month and share a lunch at the Tradies club. We are a small club of women who do little things to make a difference. Every month we have a guest speaker or some other entertainment. Our social day calendar is a highlight: we attend live theatre, trips etc; and a bus picks us up at the pool car park and drops us off there after our trip. May was our annual birthday celebration – lots of prizes and laughs. A big thank you to Nerida and her band of merry helpers. We had an executive from national council, Jo Grey, and Pam Graham from zones, and guests from Thirroul and Dapto clubs who always say we’re such a lovely branch. Our special guest was Pauline Kearton, of Dapto View Club, who read some Pam Ayre’s poetry and gave a very moving speech she won a Toastmasters competition with when she emigrated to Australia. Our next meeting is Tuesday, 16 July at Tradies Helensburgh, 10.45am for an 11.15 start, don’t forget your school items. Come along – you might find something that will enhance your life as I did. For bookings, ring Lyn 4294 1815. 2508

HELENSBURGH PROBUS

By Helen Durham, publicity officer Recent guest speakers have been James Warrands, from the Australian National Maritime Museum, who gave a very interesting, informative talk about the bombing of Darwin, and Brian Copeland, who spoke about the many murderers he encountered during his time as a Parole Officer. Activities have included an Abba cruise on Sydney Harbour – singing, dancing and laughter – and a day bus trip to Berrima. Some also enjoyed a tag-along weekend in Mittagong. Our May walk was along Lady Carrington Drive and then a leisurely lunch at the café in the park. Recent holidays away have included a bus trip to Tamworth. Highlights included a visit to the Equine Centre, Uralla Sunhill dairy goat farm and to Nundle; as well as a visit to Bob’s Shed where model cars, trains and buses and some magnificent cars once driven by Peter Brock were on display. Some members have just returned from a very interesting overseas holiday cruising through the Panama Canal up to Canada. Other countries visited included Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Mexico. Our club meets every second Thursday of the month. All welcome. Contact Brent Percy on 0419 604 576. 2508


HELENSBURGH TOASTMASTERS

Congratulations to Triple Crown recipient, Matthew Derbridge, Vice President of Education, Helensburgh and District Toastmasters Club.

HELENSBURGH MEN’S SHED

It’s about more than wood and metal, writes Paul Blanksby. I am often asked, ‘What do you guys do at the Shed?’ We make wood and metal articles, toys, furniture, animal homes, repair things, make dreams into reality. But here’s the thing. We also talk. A lot. About man stuff. About the dark places we may have been. The brokenness of humans, and if they can be fixed. (Yes, they can.) We also garden. Fresh rocket and oregano in our lunch (soup or artisan bread made by a member) is wonderful. We stretch our minds, with chess, or books, or design, or deep conversation. We tell sometimes hilariously funny stories. We nurture and treasure friendships. And weep with those who have lost one so close. Come along, grab a bowl of soup, dip in a chunk of bread, and we’ll have a chat. Helensburgh Men’s Shed, 199A Parkes Street Helensburgh. Mondays and Tuesdays 9am-3pm. Contact: Michael Croft 0413 401 522; Ron Balderston 0410 564 752. 2508

1ST HELENSBURGH SCOUTS

The Cubs love earning badges. Badges: for some cubs, earning badges is definitely one of the highlights of being a cub scout. Cubs (and their Scout friends) have an structured badge program with different levels of achievement that allows cubs to work towards goals that are important to them. Sometimes badgework is done with the whole cub pack (Helensburgh cubs recently completed their swimming badge), whilst for some cubs, they choose to earn extra badges individually on topics that interest them. There is a wide range of achievement badges (eg. art and design, bushcraft, codes and signals, flight, athletics, cooking, traveller) in cub scouts. The best part about earning badges is of course being presented with a new badge at parade and having mum, dad or grandma sew the new one onto your uniform along with all your others. Helensburgh Cubs meets Thursday nights 6.30-8pm. Email: cubs@helensburghscouts.org.au for more information. 2508

From 17-19 May, Toastmasters from all around New South Wales and Canberra gathered for the Annual District 70 Conference. This was the first year that all four contests were held during the same weekend. With six contestants from across NSW competing, it is a proud moment when a competitor from your local Area is representing your Division. On Friday, Area 23 (which Helensburgh is part of) came second, representing Southern Division. On Saturday, there was our own election of new leaders. We then held the first two contests. After the lunch contest, awards were handed out for Special Achievements. During the last 12 months, Matthew Derbridge completed the requirements for three educational programs, which means he was the recipient of the Triple Crown. District Director Elect Nick Rinaldi presented it (pictured below). Saturday Night was the International Speech contest, in which six contestants compete to be in the Region 12 Final. Region 12 consists of eight Districts, including two in New Zealand and one located in Malaysia. The winner of the Region Finals will travel to Dallas and compete in the Semi-Finals, later this month. The final contest was held on Sunday morning. Toastmasters is an organisation that doesn’t just boost self-confidence and build leadership skills. It creates friendships, builds relationships and changes your life. We meet on the second and fourth Mondays, at 7pm, at Helensburgh Tradies. You are welcome to attend our meetings. 2508

gravity, leading to rockfalls and landslides. These can be minor, but can also be major – they didn’t build the Sea Cliff Bridge just for tourists! So all of our headlands and cliffs are eroding, but bit by bit, rather than continuously. There are also other forces at play weakening the rocks, including the movement of freshwater and thermal expansion caused by heating and cooling (day and night) cycles. How often do landslides occur? According to a University of Wollongong database, there have been between 600-700 landslides since 1887. Most events are associated with long and heavy rain periods because the rocks are heavier and more prone to collapse. Long-time locals will tell you they never drove along the old Lawrence Hargrave Drive hugging the cliff during thunderstorms, in case a particularly loud rumble dislodged some rocks! The rock platforms we see are the remnant bases of old sea cliffs (or headlands) that have eroded back over millions of years. They are left behind because they’re mostly wet, which protects them from salt spray corrosion. As wave action only minimally erodes the platforms, present day erosion rates are only on the order of a millimetre (or less) per year both vertically and landward. So should you buy that cliff-top house? The good news is that geotechnical reports will tell you whether it’s safe or not. The bad news is that nature always wins… it just may take a very long time.

When most people think of the coast, they think of lovely, sandy beaches, yet much of our coastline, particularly in the Northern Illawarra, is dominated by rocky coasts that consist of cliffs, headlands and rock platforms. It makes for extremely dramatic and beautiful scenery, but how dynamic are rocky coasts? Do they change much? Have a question for Dr Rip about the Science of the Surf? The answer is yes and no. The rocks that make Email rbrander@unsw.edu.au. 2508 up our coastline and the Illawarra Escarpment consist of sediments deposited millions of years ago by massive ancient rivers. The resulting sedimentary rock is mostly made up of different layers of sandstone, but with softer claystones, shale and, of course, some coal seams. Because the strength of these layers varies, so do the rates and causes of erosion. When we see massive eruptions of waves crashing against the rocks, it’s easy to assume that waves must be eroding our rocky coasts. But the rocks are remarkably resilient to wave action. What they don’t like is salt spray, which corrodes the rocks, making them weaker. One of the obvious INK AND TONER SUPPLIES signs of salt weathering are the honeycomb IN-STORE OR BY ORDER patterns you often see on sandstone. When salt spray weakens sandstone rocks on our headlands and sea cliffs, it helps create overhangs of stronger rock material, which eventually crack due to the jointed nature of sedimentary rocks and

‘CIRCLE OF SOLIDARITY’

A Memorial Paddle Out for Glenn Andrews was held at Coalcliff last month, Jenelle McWilliam reports. On Saturday, 15 June 2019, more than 130 people assembled at Coalcliff Beach to acknowledge, remember and tell stories of a past Life Member and friend, Glenn “Spaz” Andrews. There were calm seas and warm sunshine as Glenn’s daughter Alana and son Sean, along with friends, paddled out to the reef and joined hands, forming a circle of solidarity in a sacred memorial ceremony to farewell Glenn, then caught waves together at his favourite reef break. After the Paddle Out, the club’s new Thundercat Gen III IRB was christened by Alana and Sean and named, in honour of their father, Glenn “Spaz” Andrews. Glenn lived in Coalcliff from 1979-1995. He gained his Bronze Medallion in 1980. During this time he was an active member of Coalcliff Surf Life Saving Club. Glenn held the positions of both Club Captain (1981-82) and President (1991-93). He brought new enthusiasm back to the club, which only the young bring. Glenn was also the driving force behind starting up the Nippers, which attracted many new members to the club. Families would travel from Revesby, Corrimal, Woonona, Helensburgh, Stanwell Tops and Stanwell Park so that the children could participate in the Nippers events. Glenn was instrumental in organising the original extensions to the club house. He forged

great bonds between Stanwell Park and Scarborough surf clubs, gained the support and sponsorship of the local community and small businesses, including Clifton and Helensburgh Hotels. Glenn contributed to the establishment and growth of the club in so many ways. Glenn’s love of music played an important part in his life. He was self-taught on the guitar and mandolin. Music has always been a big part of life at Coalcliff SLSC, this tradition continued with music at the Boatshed with other members, such as Ed Melinz, Ian Giddey and Max Taylor, jamming after patrols and at Club parties. It was obvious that Glenn and Ian Giddey were talented, they formed a duo, then later a band – with Andrew Jackson, Brad McNally and Dobie Godzek – called Bluesberry Jam, which was popular throughout the Northern Suburbs, playing regular gigs. Sport was another of Glenn’s passions and he participated in a wide range of sporting activities, including soccer, touch football, skiing, golf, surfing and windsurfing. Glenn was a teacher at Helensburgh and Marton Public Schools. He later left teaching and began a career in sales with the Yellow Pages. Glenn will be sadly missed by family and friends. RIP Glenn Alan Andrews 12/1/1955 to 8/4/2019 2508

GOOD LUCK AT STATE CHAMPS! By Anthony Ashley, IRB Captain at Helensburgh-Stanwell Park Surf Life Saving Club

After four regular rounds of racing in the 2019 Sharkskin IRB Racing Competition, the Helensburgh-Stanwell Park IRB Racing team, The Sea Wolves, are heading to Forster to the State Championships to compete for glory and medals. The Sea Wolves will send 12 competitors, who will compete in five different divisions. The season has been an exciting one with all members making it into final rounds during the regular season. This brings a new-found belief in the team who are looking to bring home the club’s first medals in IRB racing history. The U23’s team Noah Watson, Tahlia Bailey are looking for redemption after just missing out on a last round medal, so too are the Salty Sea Dogs in the 45+

team Mat Webber, Steve McDonald, Guy Ezzeddine and Barry McGuinness, who also made it all the way to the finals and just missed out on the top spot.

The A grade final included epic tube rides from Rod Morgan and Nic Squiers, but Rod took the win and sits top of the rankings for the year so far. Talina Wilson showed everyone how to surf her local break, taking first place in the open women’s category with a seven-point ride. n On June 11, Scarborough Boardriders hosted the Illawarra School Surfing Titles at Thirroul beach with many of our junior members competing. High Schools from Bulli High in the north to Narooma High in the south sent their top two senior boys and girls and top two junior boys and girls to compete. About 100 surfers descended on Thirroul for the day and conditions were small but contestable under a bright sunny sky. Rod Morgan won the A grade final at Sharkeys.

THANK YOU FROM THE THISTLES Belinda McGarity reports.

Saturday, 1st June 2019 was a day that truly makes us realise how lucky we are to live in our great community. We saw an oval full of a dedicated and caring town, coming together to support, celebrate and remember two great mates, Skip and Reubs. We watched great soccer, the kids had a ball at the coaching clinic run by Brad Boardman and some First Grade boys. There were many little jumpers on the jumping castle, huge smiles when the little and not-so-little ones ran out on the field with the players before their games, and a visit from Helensburgh Fire and Rescue team.

Thank you so much to everyone involved: to Bellambi FC and Figtree FC for being part of our club’s special day; to local businesses who supported and donated to our raffle; to Reggae, Ash and Josh, who all did the brave shave to raise funds; to Helensburgh Tigers for their fundraising efforts; to Bob Hennessy for his beautiful tribute prior to the First Grade match; and, most of all, to everyone who attended the day, bought raffle tickets and merchandise and helped us raise nearly $4000 for our local emergency services. Thank you all so much!

MOUNTAIN BIKERS’ BIG HEART

Mountain bike riders from Helensburgh and surrounding suburbs rallied for the Salvos last month, raising more than $1500 for the 2508 Salvos Red Shield Appeal. “It was a fantastic family-funday,” said 2508 Salvos’ Lauren Martin. “So many people and local businesses got on board to help, with a great kids and adults fitness challenge, cake stall and barbecue. The money raised will go towards employing a new community worker here at 2508 Salvos.” 2508
