AN elected Labor Government will commit more than $933,000 for the Bendigo Showgrounds to complete the second stage of the Regional Events Centre Development. Federal Member for Bendigo Lisa Chesters said she was proud Labor will deliver for the showgrounds. “I’ve met with a number of users and stakeholders at recent Bendigo Showgrounds Markets who have signed petitions in support for this funding,” she said The proposed work includes improving access for pedestrians and vehicles, landscaping the surrounds at the front and back of the regional events centre, and upgrading surface drainage and unsafe road conditions. Upgrading the external part of the building would improve the local experience for user groups including the Australian Sheep and Wool Show, National Swap Meet, Australian Alpaca Association, Bendigo Leisurefest, Groovin the Moo and more; and would provide a solid platform for the future development of the precinct. Federation Veteran Vintage Classic Clubs President, Neil Athorn said the Prince of Wales Showgrounds continue to deliver for user groups. “This year will be our 43rd swap at the Bendigo Showgrounds and we are nearly booked out,” he said.

“Bendigo Swap is committed till 2025 at the showgrounds and these upgrades will improve the experience for our patrons and retain Bendigo as the premier Swap in Australia.” Bendigo Agricultural Show Society Executive Officer, Ian Furze said the upgrades will help cater to the increasing usage de-

These upgrades will improve the experience for our patrons mands and provide a higher standard facility. “The Bendigo Agricultural Show Society is extremely pleased with the announcement,” he said. “This commitment will allow completion of infrastructure works to support the Regional Events Complex and Bendigo Exhibition Centre, which will provide a considerable boost to our efforts to attract large scale events to Bendigo.” “Lisa Chesters has been a great supporter of the Show Society and Showgrounds and we commend Lisa for her efforts in securing these funds.”

mismanagement. “It is not their fault that the supply of engines has not arrived,” Ms Chesters said. “The company should do more to find them alternate work.” Thales said that Steyr Motors is undergoing a restructuring and that is the cause of the delay. Ms Chesters said that all of the parts required for assembly are made elsewhere, but assembled in Bendigo. “I hear there is an alternative that could have been used in the design stage, a Victorian-made engine. This is why we need to have

DEFENCE manufacturer Thales will shut down its floor operations from April 8 to April 26, with up to 120 workers forced to take annual leave or leave without pay. The work stoppage is due to an issue with the supply of an engine from Austrian manufacturer Steyr Motors, as part of the Hawkei vehicle project. “Some delays to the production schedule are unavoidable and outside our control,” a Thales spokesperson said. Federal Member for Bendigo Lisa Chesters denounced the decision saying that it was unfair to make workers pay for the Thales’

future holidays. That puts a lot of pressure on families and household budgets,” Ms Chesters said. Thales responded by saying, “there will be no requirement for staff to take leave without pay.”

This latest shutdown comes after 35 Bendigo Thales employees were among 240 across the country who were unpaid during a seven year span, with $5.4 million back paid last year. Ms Chesters urged the company to step up and fix its workplace issues. “Underpaying and standing workers down demonstrates a terrible track record that this company is developing,” she said. Thales wouldn’t commit to whether or not work would commence immediately after the shutdown saying it is, “committed to ensuring we maintain long term, ongoing employment for our people.”

Bulldog brews a venue

KEY FOCUS: Nick Styles has an eye on photography. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN

Photography fans develop an interest in film AN idea for a community dark room in Bendigo has produced a new local venture with a surprising customer base. Teenagers have proven to be Bat City owner Nick Styles’ biggest customers, with nostalgia not

the reason drawing them in. “What surprised me about that was that as technology ages and more and more is available to them, they’re going back to this,” Mr Styles said. Bat City, named in homage

to the bats of Rosalind Park, is a store selling cameras, film and photography materials from yesteryear. There are plans for a community dark room and photo studio for hire at Bat City, with Mr Styles

currently available to develop film himself. Cameras range from $30$2500 in price and are sourced from across the globe, with a local engineering student entrusted with revitalising some of the cameras.

A POPULAR former Western Bulldogs player has thrown his hat in the ring to overturn a string of failed ventures at a venue in Kennington. Paul Dimattina is the director of Katimi Pty Ltd, who applied for a liquor licence at the site of the former Solsbury Hill restaurant and Hashtag Public Bar at Kennington Village. Mr Dimattina played 131 games for the Dogs between 1995 and 2003, with his family embedded in the cafe and hospitality industry for decades. Dimattina’s coffee in its current form was founded in 1998 in Melbourne’s north and has now expanded operations into Western Australia. Katimi Pty Ltd has applied to the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation for a liquor licence at the Condon Street premises Mr Dimattina was contacted for comment with regards to his plans for the venue, following the closure of Solsbury Hill in May 2018.

Sam flies Liberal flag

By NICHOLAS NAKOS

THE Liberal Party’s candidate for Bendigo Sam Gayed is thinking big when it comes to projects for the region. “We need to think big and plan big for the Bendigo region if we want to boost its economy and want it to flourish.” “I am going to work on a large scale and have plans for major projects to help the region,” he said. Mr Gayed was inspired to enter politics soon after he moved to Australia in 2011. “After I moved to Australia, I liked the political environment and believe it is the best political system in the world, so I wanted to take part in that,” he said. Mr Gayed has worked as a chartered engineer and owns a medical education consultancy business, IMG SOS, that employs more than 70 contractors. “I believe the Liberal Party’s policies and values align with mine and they are the best for our country and our economy,” he said. A resident of Bendigo East since arriving in the region in 2013 with his wife and three children, Mr

Gayed has some bold ideas on how to enliven the region so that it can become even better than it is. When asked where Bendigo needed to be improved, he remarked, “it’s not about fixing things, it’s about boosting things.” “We have tourism in Bendigo, but we have to boost it, especially with the new airport. There have been suggestions for a five-star hotel to cater to major events. That is a great idea,” he said. Other projects that Mr Gayed mentioned would be of tremendous value to the region include solar farms, a new mega shopping mall and a dedicated chronic care psychiatric hospital. Mr Gayed was asked how he is different to incumbent Lisa Chesters and said, “Lisa Chesters is a friendly person and she feels for people, however she doesn’t meet their needs. People want action. I believe that the current scale of work in Bendigo doesn’t match its potential.” Mr Gayed said that he is supported by a diverse and motivated team and thinks that if he can run a good campaign, people will be inspired. “We have to tell people what we have to offer and how we can help

Entries open for art show THE Bendigo Easter Rotary Art show will return for another Easter highlight, with entries for the popular exhibition and sales event now open. The iconic show last year celebrated its 50th anniversary, and it continues to provide an important opportunity for artists to showcase their work and sell their paintings. The exhibition features works in oil, acrylic, pencil and watercolour, and all works are offered for sale as one of the Rotary Club of Bendigo’s most significant fundraising events. Last year, more than 84 works were included in the art show. The Easter Art Show is presented in the Bendigo Town Hall, and is one of the premier art shows of the year across regional Victoria. The Easter art exhibition starts with the traditional gala evening on Thursday, April 18, with tickets available from Bendigo Tour-

voting, defeating Liberal Party candidate Megan Purcell, with a 2.48 per cent swing to Labor.

REGISTRATIONS for this year’s Mother’s Day Classic fun run are now open. This year marks the 11th anniversary of the Bendigo event, which has raised more than $500,000 for breast cancer research and included more than 16,000 participants since its inception in 2008. All funds raised from the popular event goes to the National Breast Cancer Foundation to fund life changing breast cancer research. Statistics show approximately one in eight women will develop breast cancer before age 85. An estimated 3100 Australians die from the disease each year. The event will again be held at Strathdale’s Beischer Park, on Sunday, May 12 and includes a four kilometre walk, a four km run and an eight km run to test the fitness and en-

durance of participants. Entrants are invited to dress up and have fun as they traverse any of the three courses, while some of the region’s best athletes are expected to once again challenge themselves and one another in the timed run events. This year’s Mother’s Day Classic will be presented by a new-look committee under the leadership of Jody McGregor, a former committee member for the Melbourne Mother’s Day Classic. Ms McGregor is seeking further members for the new committee, and invites anyone interested in being part of one of Bendigo’s biggest and best community events to contact her via email at mdcbendigo@ gmail.com Online registrations can be made via www.mothersdayclassic.com.au/bendigo

Take the stage

BENDIGO Health Foundation and the Ulumbarra Foundation have teamed up to raise funds and awareness for the arts and health. The inaugural Take the Stage gala event takes place on Saturday, April 13, with patrons set to enjoy a glittering night of entertainment. Guests will be given the unique opportunity to dine on stage at the Ulumbarra Theatre while enjoying a wonderful evening of entertainment over three acts, including a showcase from the Bendigo Symphony Orchestra and music throughout the night. Take the Stage will be hosted by radio presenter and uku-

lele virtuoso Derek Guille, and will support the work of the two prominent Bendigo foundations. Ulumbarra Foundation chair, Gordon McKern OAM, said as central Victoria’s only charitable organisation dedicated to supporting the performing arts, the Ulumbarra Foundation was delighted to collaborate with the Bendigo Health Foundation on this innovative event. “I’m sure our donors share the view of our board, that the performing arts play an important role in the health and wellbeing of our community.” Bendigo Health Foundation board member Scott El-

kington said his organisation was dedicated to improving the healthcare of those in central Victoria. “Our focus is on the purchase of specialised medical equipment and programs to provide excellent care, every person, every time. “It’s often the little things that make a big difference when you or your loved ones are unwell. We are pleased to be involved in the inaugural event and exploring the collaboration between arts and health.” Tickets for Take the Stage are now available from the box office or at www.bendigoregion. com.au/arts-culture-theatres/ event/take-stage-arts-and-health

BENDIGO’S first ever Pride Festival begins this weekend to celebrate diversity and inclusion in the Greater Bendigo region. Bendigo Pride came about after community members approached Thorne Harbour Country to ask for help in obtaining a Victorian Government pride grant. The festival was successful in being awarded a small amount of funding. Counsellor and health promotions officer at Thorne Harbour Health Martin Gladman has been involved in ensuring the month-long event is community driven and relevant. He will also be helping to facilitate five drug and alcohol free events that hope to create safe and supportive spaces for people to enjoy themselves. “The grant money has gone towards being able to pay performers, hire quality venues

HOPE: Students from Epsom Primary School are raising money for cancer research.

Ready for the relay STUDENTS from Epsom Primary School are offering hope to cancer victims, survivors and carers at the Cancer Council’s Bendigo Relay for Life getting under way this evening at Backhaus Oval, Golden Square. Organisers are expecting more than 500 people will attend the overnight event in aid of finding a cancer cure and funding support services for all cancer sufferers. Grade five student, Cooper McConnell

came up with the idea to support the Relay for Life when the junior school council was looking at ways to branch out to help the community, according to teacher Gill Davey, who will be joining students at their first relay under the Team Epsom Joy banner. “I know a lot of people with cancer including my own grandmother and was wanting to do something to help,” Cooper said. He was pivotal in helping the team exceed its fundraising target by

Love at first sound It is no surprise that as technology continues to advance, more and more hearing devices are being introduced into the marketplace. With many similar devices to pick from, it can be confusing to decide which is the best solution for your hearing loss situation. The additional challenge is many hearing aids tend to be really good at one thing, missing out on what matters most – delivering clear, rich sound in any listening situation.

several hundred dollars. “We’ll be a lot better organised next year and try to get the whole school onboard,” Mrs Davey said. The carnival-inspired relay starts with an opening ceremony at 6.30pm today followed by the Survivors and Carers Walk and the emotional candlelight ceremony, which will be the culmination of months of fundraising effort. Teams can circumnavigate the Fir Street oval throughout the

Eating by colour and all meetings, events and functions with internal and external attendees that council facilitates. The policy excludes venues where the council has an on-site catering agreement such as the Ulumbarra Theatre, The Capital and Town Hall. A council spokesperson said this policy totally upends previous policies and is hoping to embed the Victorian Government’s Healthy Choices guidelines in the City of Greater Bendigo. According to the guidelines, all alcohol is considered a red drink item and is not available to purchase for catering, prizes, giveaways or sponsorship. “We have never had a policy

around alcohol besides the responsible service of alcohol. It is a red drink item and won’t be able to be purchased,” a council spokesperson confirmed. The policy dictates that in the aforementioned events, there are to be no red items and at least 50 per cent green items, with the remainder being amber items. Food and drinks in the green category include cereals, vegetables, milk and lean meat. The amber category features canned fruit, salted nuts and steamed dim sims. The red category includes all types of lollies, cream, deep-fried foods and alcohol. – Nicholas Nakos

Footbridge adds access to station THE new pedestrian footbridge at Bendigo Station was officially opened last Friday by Minister for Transport Infrastructure Jacinta Allan and City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Margaret O’Rourke. The new bridge features air-conditioned lifts, stairs, ramps and handrails, along with improvements to CCTV and lighting. “This is a beautiful, historic station that has not

had the accessibility for people to able to get in and out of the station easily,” Ms Allan said. “In the past five years there has been a 21 per cent increase in the number of passengers catching the train along the Bendigo line,” she said. The pedestrian overpass was originally installed last year, with bridge ramps opened soon after.

People with mobility aids, passengers with luggage and families with prams are now able to easily transfer between platforms. Prior to the installment of the overpass, passengers who required assistance needed to be escorted by V/Line staff between platforms. Ms Allan remarked that works are not yet finished for Bendigo Station, with nearby Eaglehawk Station

works also under way. Further planned Bendigo Station upgrades will see improvements to the station building, including waiting area, toilets and customer service. Upgrades at Eaglehawk Station will be completed in the second half of this year and include an extended platform for longer trains, new landscaping, footpaths and a 60-space car park.

Flags fly for Harmony Day

LAST week, La Trobe University’s student union courtyard was draped in the world’s flags for Harmony Day.

FUNERALS - Tell me more. #1 WHAT DO FUNERALS COST? The Cost of Funerals varies, based on the elements chosen by each family. They range, in general terms from $3,500 for a ‘No Service’ Cremation, to an average $6,000 for a Standard Cremation Service and from $7,000 to $10,000 for a standard Funeral with a Burial. Of Course based on family choices these figures can be higher. It is important to remember families are in control when it comes to the elements they include in a Funeral.

MAKE THE CALL ASK YOUR ENERGY COMPANY FOR A BETTER DEAL

The biggest varying factors in Funeral costs are; - Coffins (Standard Range $900 to $6,000 +) - Cemetery/Cremation Costs (see below) - Newspaper Notices (Ave. Bgo approx. $300) - Flowers

About Coffins & Caskets Although the terms are now generic, a Coffin is generally rounded at the shoulder and tapers to the foot end. Their origins are in our Anglo/ European history. Caskets are a rectangular shape and generally are more elaborate and more expensive. Their origins are largely American. Today, most commonly, coffins are made of MDF or Chipboard, a resource friendly material.

As of January 1st, providers have dropped prices on their most expensively priced plans due to pressure from the Government.

Cardboard coffins are often talked about but generally were a trend based on a perception of being cheaper and more environmentally friendly. It is interesting to note they are generally not substantially cheaper and the most environmentally friendly coffin material is solid timber, a natural product with carbon capture credentials.

But if you really want to save, simply call your energy company and ask them for a better deal.

In terms of costs, Cemetery fees are substantial. 30 Years ago Cemetery fees amounted to about 30% of Funeral costs now they can be as high as 45-50%. The cost of a grave and 1st interment in Bendigo, Eaglehawk and Kangaroo Flat Lawn Cemeteries can be up to $5,000* White Hills is a less expensive option at around $3,300*. This does not include memorialization.

You could lower your bill by $600 a year. Visit our website for tips on calling your energy company.

Cemetery Costs

A Cremation on the other hand is approx. $850 (Cremation Fee $750 and Doctors Certificate from $75), however cremation does not provide a location/memorial to visit, this is an additional cost if memorialization is required by the family.

Simon Mulqueen of BENDIGO FUNERALS has been a Funeral Director for almost 40 Years, for more Information contact BENDIGO FUNERALS on 5444 0400 *Cemetery fees can vary dramatically based on Cemetery & Grave location and specific requirements including grave size & depth. ** The information provided in this column is general in nature and intended as a guide only.

Labor MP aims to tackle hardship

FEDERAL Member for Bendigo Lisa Chesters has detailed how a Federal Labor Government would ease the cost of living for central Victorians. Recent figures reported to the Victorian Energy and Water Ombudsman has revealed that Bendigo is one of the seven municipalities in the state to have the highest rates of financial hardship. Ombudsman Cynthia Gebert said some custom-

ers consume energy and water at an average of $100 per fortnight, while their capacity to pay is just $45. Illness, relationship breakdowns, unemployment and family violence are some of the factors that contribute to people falling behind on their bills, she said. Ms Chesters outlined a number of measures the Labor Party would take if elected, when she spoke

with Jenny Elvey from Bendigo Family and Financial Services on Tuesday. Reforms of the National Rental Affordability Scheme, a reduction in out of pocket fees for health and education and boosting wages by reversing cuts to penalty rates are some of the measures proposed. “I’ve met with many central Victorian families, residents and businesses who are struggling to keep

up because of skyrocketing bills, stagnant wages and the general cost of living,” Ms Chesters said. Ms Elvey said that their demand is increasing, with 20-30 new enquiries a week for financial counselling. “At this stage there’s an 8-10 week waiting list. We can put some of those into emergency relief when needed but things aren’t getting any easier,” she said. – Nicholas Nakos

Individuality and inclusion on show STAFF and students at La Trobe University Bendigo came together this week to celebrate and support the campus’ LGBTIQ community.

HIGH ACHIEVER: Augustine Leung receives his diploma.

The right note YEAR eight Girton Grammar student Augustine Leung has received a prestigious Associate in Music, Australia Diploma. The AMusA is awarded by examination to outstanding candidates of musical performance and music theory, by the Australian Music Examinations Board. It is equivalent to achieving an undergraduate tertiary qualification in music and is only obtained after successfully completing 10 levels of practical and theoretical examinations. Achieving an AMusA is a significant accomplishment

for musicians of any age and at only 13, Augustine’s experience is impressive. “I started my musical journey at the age of three,” he said. “My earliest memory of playing music involves a Christmas present from my parents that played national anthems from around the world. I used it to learn those melodies on the piano. “During my junior school years, I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to watch the Forever Young Community Choir practice with the Girton Orchestra and to play some piano for

them during their tea breaks. Their passion, devotion, and love of music is inspiring and made me realise that there are no boundaries in music.” Augustine’s musical influences are varied, and he says gaining knowledge and understanding from other passionate musicians, takes his music to another level. Augustine says music will always have a place in his life. He is looking forward to attending the Conferring of Diplomas Ceremony in Melbourne in early 2019, which recognises the achievements of outstanding young musicians.

New plan for food strategy

COUNCIL is developing Greater Bendigo’s first food system strategy to support a healthy, local food system and improve the health and wellbeing of our community for the next 10 years. City of Greater Bendigo’s Vicky Mason said the council is calling on food producers, growers, processors, manufacturers, distributors, and wholesalers, chefs and food retailers, schools and educators, health services, resource recovery agencies, workplaces and members of the general public to get involved. “The strategy will look at everything it takes to get food on our plate from growing, storing, processing and transporting to selling, eating and

then disposing of our food waste,” Ms Mason said. “It’s an important piece of work given that every person in the community is impacted by our food system on one level or another and we need to make sure it is a system that is healthy and is meeting the needs of the community. “Dietary factors present the greatest risk to the health of the Australian population and in Greater Bendigo, 91.4 per cent of adults don’t meet the Australian vegetable intake guidelines and 57.6 per cent of adults don’t meet the guidelines for fruit intake. Ms Mason encourages everyone to have input into the strategy so council can

find out what residents believe would make it easier for them to eat healthy, grow their own food and support our local food system into the future. “The council has a vision to create the world’s most liveable community and one of the ways we hope to achieve this is by protecting, improving and promoting health and wellbeing within our community,” Ms Mason said. There will be opportunities for residents to have a say at a range of local community events and activities.

Repair station for cyclists CYCLISTS using the O’Keefe Rail Trail now have access to a repair station at the Axedale Park installed by the Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail group. This bike facility is one of two installed along the rail trail by the group, with funding provided by Strathfieldsaye and Districts Community Enterprise. Located in the centre of Axedale, it is also be available for use by local residents, school students and visitors to the township. The other repair station is located adjacent to the rail trail’s car park, off Wilkie Road, Junortoun. Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail president Garry Long said with support provided by the City of Greater Bendigo and Cr Yvonne Wrigglesworth, the approval process allowed for a timely installation to take place in Axedale. “With no local bike repair businesses in towns like Junortoun, Axedale and Heathcote, such facilities will provide confidence for cyclists planning to use the 49km rail trail. “A similar bike repair station is expected to be installed in Heathcote’s Barrick Reserve in the near future, funded by several Heathcote community organisations.” Two potable water stations have also now been installed for access by O’Keefe Rail Trail users, one adjacent to the trail near Bennetts Road, Junortoun and the other in Axedale Park, and are expected to save the purchase of many plastic bottles of water, which usually get discarded.

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, March 29, 2019

On track for the holidays BENDIGO has many fantastic sealed cycling tracks for you to head out on this coming school holidays. See if you can ride these three before heading back to school. From Lake Weeroona, you can head north to Epsom or South to Spring Gully. For Epsom, take the ramp down from the lakeside path to the Bendigo Creek and head north along the creek under Weeroona Avenue bridge. Other than some minor road crossings, it’s traffic-free. After around three kilometres, cross the bridge at Hamelin Street to Bendigo’s beautiful Botanical Gardens. Both gardens are well worth a visit for the lovely autumn colours. Then continue north, through the new Scott Street underpass, past paddocks and, across the creek, Epsom’s car yards and hardware store. Turn around at the Epsom Primary school on Howard Street. Enjoy the scenery on the return ride and maybe a refreshment at the Boardwalk Café. Ride two, heading south from Lake Weeroona, is great family ride with much to see and do. Cross Nolan Street at the bike/pedestrian lights, ride past the tennis centre, then veer left toward McCrae Street. Again, cross at the bike/ pedestrian lights and continue along the creek trail, over Hargreaves Street, past the tram depot and down the ramp to the new McIvor Road underpass. Continue along the new concrete path through three

bendigo

HIGHWAYS: Bendigo has many paths to follow. more underpasses painted with beautiful murals. Keep going along the creek bed until you pop up onto Havlin Street at Wolstencroft Reserve, where the pump track is a popular play area. Ride along Havlin Street for a block before rejoining the trail, which then goes all the way to the Spring Gully Oval and playground (crossing four roads along the way). Enjoy a coffee at the Spring Gully Store before winding back along the scenic track among the gums of the creek reserve. Ride three starts in Hargreaves Street, Golden Square,

near the creek. The bike path heads down under High Street, popping up in family-friendly Golden Square. Ride past the bowls club, football oval and its well known swimming pool. In Kangaroo Flat, the sealed off-road bike through the creek reserve passes Cooinda Park and the new Gurri Wanyarra Wellbeing Centre. It continues under and across a few roads through Kangaroo Flat, eventually leaving the creek. After crossing Furness Street, the path follows the road before

heading to Crusoe Reservoir. This is a slight climb but well worth the effort. You may wish to complete a lap of the reservoir on the maintained gravel path. Heading back to Bendigo, the ride is slightly downhill most of the way. Bendigo has many other paths including the very popular O’Keefe Rail Trail, a trail from Lake Weeroona to the basketball stadium past the showgrounds, and many other beautiful locations. I urge you to get the family out and enjoy riding the trails in our beautiful city. – Geoff O’Sullivan

Single for Lions

BENDIGO-based roots rockers Four Lions have released their second single Stay, from the band’s forthcoming album Hard Days. Their latest slice of classic Americana-tinged heartland rock comes hot on the heels of last month’s opening salvo How Much. Stay marks Four Lions’ first foray into a full band

composition. It started life as an unfinished demo of just three chords, brought into a band practice, and took about six sessions to complete. “It went from sounding like The Who to evolve into something vibing from Tom Petty’s back catalogue,” frontman Shann Lions said. Lions penned the lyr-

ics, about negotiating the evolving balance of power within a partnership and the need to make sacrifices. “It’s a triad – two separate individuals, and the relationship – these three entities should all co-exist,” he said. “The person in Stay has come to the realisation that they have put their own personal fulfill-

Dancers step out for an Irish taste

ment to the side.” Stay was recorded by Finn Keane (Wilco) at Melbourne’s Head Gap Studios and produced by The Greasy Triplets (Lions, lead guitarist Keith MacQueen, and Keane). The album Hard Days will be released on May 3, followed by a series of gigs in regional and metropolitan Victoria, and an East Coast tour.

No GovHub battle

Canaries in the mine

I AM concerned by last week’s letter to the editor from Max Turner and Lindsay Sargeant where they state “the battle is over but the war continues” in regards to the Bendigo GovHub project. This language is inflammatory and unnecessary. There was no battle nor is there a war. Both Max and Lindsay were encouraged repeatedly to meet with representatives of Regional Development Victoria, which is the Victorian Government department responsible for the project, local MPs and council staff. I did meet and correspond several times with both Max and Lindsay, as did other councillors. I encouraged them to check their facts and gather the correct information from those directly connected to the proposed project. They did not do this prior to the council decision. Instead of taking this opportunity to meet and get a better understanding of the project and get the facts, inaccurate advertisements were published about council and the project which were highly inappropriate and filled with personal attacks. While they may not have agreed with the project or the decision by council to sell the current Lyttleton Terrace site, this antagonistic approach is disrespectful. The information that could be shared with the community was made available. When dealing with contract negotiation, rental costs and construction costs, this information is deemed commercial in confidence and cannot be made available. To do that could potentially blow out the cost of the project or impact on the current commercial rental market. Councillors have received large amounts of very positive feedback from businesses and residents about the project. People are excited by the opportunities this project will bring to revitalise our city centre. Letters to the editor, columns and public comments by local business leaders have also enthusiastically welcomed the news. This project together with the new $100 million Law Courts and $60 million TAFE redevelopment will all help to revitalise the northern end of central Bendigo, sparking a new wave of construction and city building. Not all council decisions will be popular but council must work for the benefit of the whole community. Cr Margaret O’Rourke, Bendigo Mayor

I THANK the valiant young Bendigo students who, lacking the ability to vote themselves took initiative to attend the recent Bendigo Strike 4 Climate. Like “canaries in mines” they expressed deep concern for the unnatural degree of climate warming since the beginning of the industrial age. They know 97 per cent of actively publishing scientists agree man’s activities since the industrial revolution caused temperature rise beyond natural. The greater the climate expertise among those scientists surveyed, the higher the consensus on humancaused warming. If 97 per cent of experts told you jumping off cliffs was dangerous would you jump because the other less qualified three per cent said OK, you wanted to fly and you wished it was true? Unfortunately hearsay is not accurate. Warmer climate does anecdotally backup many local Bendigo and rural residents’ observational knowledge. Many Murray/Darling Basin farmers would agree. We can’t see or smell pollution in our lovely country town, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t measurably present. I’m sorry some Bendigonians have seen so little natural bushland they cannot see the difference between proven paucity of species, damaged earth and introduced weeds in secondary growth and old growth bushland’s health and diversity. Australian government scientists recently reported mammals’ first extinction solely due to climate change causes. Predictions are validating closer now, not only for plants, reptiles, fish, birds, insects and frogs, but members of our own mammalian order. There is hope and a brief window in time to correct. We don’t have to “live with” extreme climate change, we can act. Intelligent and well informed children make us aware that time for discussion has passed. After all they will have to live in this future world being created now. Janet Foote, Kangaroo Flat

PICK OF THE WEEK: Gates at Fortuna. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN For more photos go to www.newbendigophotos.com mosque in Bendigo next year. That was a huge statement. What the public have not been told is that it is a $15 million project, and no, they don’t have that kind of money. Also, they have to physically build it. There may be some people who would be inclined to make that difficult for them. I think they ought to stop putting rose coloured glasses in the leftist membership pack. Murray McPhie, Epsom

Inevitable response IT was inevitable, really, that there would be a response of the “if you don’t like it, leave” variety to letters written by me and by Stuart Symons on the issue of timber workers versus national parks. The words “exploited” and “exploitation” crop up with predictable frequency in the letter from Gary Jude (Slippery slope, Weekly, March 22). His entire argument seems to rest on the notion that exploiting the environment is both beneficial and necessary, and anyone who disagrees with this on any level is little more than a nuisance standing in the way of progress. However, much of what Mr Jude says is irrelevant to this discussion, given that Helen Leach’s original letter, and both my response and Mr Symons’ response, were specifically about the question of what timber workers should or should not be able to chop down. He is the one who broadened the discussion to other issues which were

mentioned in none of the letters he is responding to. With no evidence to support his claim, he is definitely on a slippery slope. He cannot assume knowledge of what other writers may or may not believe about topics beyond the scope of their letters. He seems to be more concerned with venting his antagonism against the environmentalists he sees as the enemies of progress than he is with anything else. As for his reference to wind turbines as “bird-munching eyesores”, here is some real slipperiness. If his concern is environmental, perhaps he could take a look at the old Hazelwood power plant, and the open cut mines all around it. Now that truly is an eyesore. If his concern is ornithological, he could do some research on the actual numbers of birds killed by the turbines. He is likely to find that more birds are killed by pollution and loss of habitat than by colliding with turbine blades. What he needs to consider is that, like it or not, an economy that continues to base its development on the exploitation of finite environmental resources is indeed on the slippery slope to oblivion. Julie Hopper, Bendigo

What planet? IN reply to the letter “Slippery slope”, Bendigo Weekly, March 20, I just wonder what planet the composer of this letter is from? Yes there is a use and need for trees but they also play a big part in supporting the environment where they draw in various impurities such

as carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. Trees are used for many things in our daily life, but they also control the effects of the sun, rain and wind as well as conserving water along with the prevention of soil erosion. That is why when trees are cut down new trees are replanted to keep the cycle going. All these things Mr Jude should have learnt at school. Tests have shown that on-shore gas drilling has the potential to contaminate the underground water streams, and the coal fired electricity supplies are causing effects on the environment. He also suggests that the environmental fascism by blocking new coal mining prevents the building of new water storages, surely he is not suggesting that they use these mining holes for dams, and would it be used for water for drinking and farming? We have a federal government so full of climate change sceptics that they haven’t got a climate change policy only a couple of months out from an election. Ivan Kitt, Bendigo

Students’ despair IT is worth reminding Gary Jude (Letters, March 22) that we don’t own this world, we merely “borrow” it from our grandchildren. With attitudes such as his, is it any wonder that school students are taking to the streets in despair at the sort of world they will inherit? James Proctor, Strathdale

Flight into history

SUNDAY’S historic flight into Bendigo by a Qantas Link plane loaded with 50 passengers is a major milestone for our city and one that deserves our acknowledgement. The decision several years ago by the City of Greater Bendigo, together with the state and federal governments, to build a new 1600-metre runway capable of handling larger passenger aircraft might have seemed to be a gamble, but it’s one that has paid off – at least for now. We have all been told to use it, or lose it, and so now the destiny of this eagerly awaited service rests in the hands of this community. Forward ticket sales have been reported by Qantas as strong, which was to be expected, but there needs to be ongoing and constant support from the Bendigo community for this service to survive and thrive. If it does, then there is potential for other services to follow. Significantly, several local real estate agents have already report-

Editorial Comment ed an increase in inquiry from Sydney-based buyers, attracted to the region by the potential offered through Qantas. From a business perspective, Be. Bendigo has been an enthusiastic and positive supporter of the bid to deliver air services to Sydney, as a potential first step to other services that bring Bendigo closer to the rest of the world, and the rest of the world closer to Bendigo. Major businesses from across the region have been strong supporters of the campaign to lure a major carrier to Bendigo. The opportunity to fly from Bendigo to Sydney for business and return home in the same day has been there for a while, but suddenly, we don’t need to drive to Melbourne first in order to do so.

Tht’s not only saved local residents looking to fly to Sydney time and money, but there’s an added safety factor associated with not having to drive the more than 130-kilometres to Tullamarine and then return as well. Equally, the local tourism industry, together with Qantas, faces a significant challenge to generate interest in the Bendigo market among Sydney residents, but it’s a challenge Bendigo welcomes and embraces. Much of what this city has to offer could easily be taken for granted by those of us who get to experience it every day. Whether it’s the stunning architecture and historic buildings, the sensational food and wine, the beautiful countryside, our wonderful gallery or the attractions of surrounding communities to our north, south, east and west, the Bendigo experience is as unique as it is hopefully appealing to the people of Sydney.

opinion By KELVIN F CURNOW

THE events which occurred in Christchurch witnessed the death of 50 innocent worshippers. This barbaric action by an Australian-born right-wing extremist has properly been condemned by religious, political and civic leaders of all stripes. It has rightly shocked both New Zealanders and Australians. Yet the question must be put, if we are not responsible for the actions of one man, are we complicit in his actions by permitting an atmosphere of xenophobia, religious intolerance and race-hate to fester in our country? Unfortunately Bendigo has witnessed all three forms of bigotry in protests against the construction of a mosque in this municipality, notably in August and October 2015, February 2016 and September 2017, when the extreme right-wing group The United Patriots Front fomented ugly protests on the streets of our city.

Bendigo • Victoria • Australia Regrettably, according to news outlets, their cause was supported by the past councillors Elise Chapman and Julie Hoskin. As civic leaders both should have had a leading role in the promotion of harmony and unity among the citizenry of Bendigo. The repugnant views expressed by those opposed to the mosque

ter Dutton have promoted the impression that all refugees who are currently held illegally on Manus Island and Nauru are Islamic terrorists, paedophiles, murderers and rapists. These are views disseminated to engender an atmosphere of fear, designed to support the argument that only a coalition government can keep Australians safe.

The repugnant views expressed by those opposed to the mosque are those same attitudes which the gunman carried with him are those same attitudes which the gunman carried with him into the mosques in Christchurch as he opened fire. Our two cities are therefore inextricably linked, unfortunately marked by hate, not love. National politics have also witnessed the propagation of Islamophobia, particularly with the rise of Pauline Hanson and her acolytes. Scott Morrison and Pe-

Fraser Anning has taken Islamophobia to a new low by stating that Muslim immigration was a contributing factor in the Christchurch killings. That these abhorrent views exist is regrettably reflective of an Australian society which is increasingly tolerant of hate speech, deigned permissible in the name of the right to free speech. The weasel words now spoken by ‘ScoMo’

preaching inclusion will not undo the untold harm he has done in sowing fear and intolerance in our nation. The massacre in Christchurch marked a black day in the history of New Zealand with whom we share so many ties. Out of this dark time the spirit of humankind has been shown at its finest, our nations together sharing in a collective grief. For over 100 years we have joined in the common remembrance of Gallipoli which is ANZAC Day. At the end of World War I the pledge was that there would never be another conflagration of its like. Post Christchurch it would be admirable if such a commitment were repeated to ensure that such terrible hate crimes do not occur again. This commitment should be particularly pertinent to our two cities which have witnessed extreme expressions of hate, albeit to an unimaginable difference in magnitude.

Righting the wrongs

This is a revised and extended version of the story the Weekly ran last week, following suggestions by the book’s author, Louise Milligan. JOURNALIST Louise Milligan was supposed to be a key guest at last year’s Bendigo Writers Festival. Her book Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of George Pell was hot off the press and contained allegations that not only was the cardinal involved in a coverup of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church, but that he too, had sexually abused children. Milligan was aware Pell was under investigation by the Victorian Police, and had been for two years. The day that the book was published, the Victorian Office of Public Prosecutions made it known that it had sent the Pell brief back to Victoria Police and it was free to charge Pell if it wished. Six weeks later, the Cardinal was charged with multiple historic child sexual offences. At that point Milligan and her publisher voluntarily withdrew the book from sale in Victoria, where George Pell was to be tried. It remained for sale elsewhere in Australia. Milligan became a witness in the Pell case. She worked most nights and weekends as well as taking some leave from the ABC’s 7.30

HICKMAN’S

utation. However the stories that unfolded during the Royal Commission and her own investigations made it imperative to write the book. “I had a clear eyed focus,” she said. “I wanted other people to know what I had discovered. “I have two small children and I imagined what it would have been like if my children walked into a school like St Alipius in Ballarat,” she said. St Alipius was the school in the 1970s where the notorious paedophile priest Gerald Rids-

dale sexually abused children in what has been described as a reign of terror. Church authorities were involved in a cover-up and moved the priest to other parishes, including Elsternwick in 1980 and Horsham in 1986. Milligan’s book also describes the allegations of two men, Lyndon Monument and Damian Dignan, who claimed they were sexually assaulted by Cardinal Pell, then a priest, at Ballarat’s Eureka pool in the late 1970s. The charges of sexual abuse that brought the former Vatican treasurer undone occurred at St Patricks Cathedral, East Melbourne in 1996. Pell pleaded not guilty and his lawyer has lodged an appeal against his conviction. “Pell always cites the Melbourne Response in defence of his response to the survivors of sexual abuse,” Milligan said. “But the Melbourne Response is questionable and inadequate and after talking to many of the survivors I’d say it would re-traumatise them.” In the process of her investigations Milligan said she came across many Catholics who felt hurt and betrayed that their religion had let them down. Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of George Pell (MUP) is now back on bookshelves in a revised and updated form.

Photos put youth in focus A GROUP of local young people are holding a creative photographic exhibition called Youth in the Spotlight. It’s to showcase young people who contribute to the Greater Bendigo community and will be held during Victorian Youth Week from April 5 to 14. Greater Bendigo youth councillor Billie Taylor said YO Bendigo is calling for young people aged 12-24 to nominate themselves or a friend to be recognised for their commitment to others in the community. “It can be something as small as helping a neighbour, volunteering or simply being a caring and compassionate person,” she said. The Youth in the Spotlight exhibition will be launched at the Rock and Raw FReeZA event from 3pm to 7pm on Saturday, April 6, in the car park between Headspace and Jools for Jim at 78 Pall Mall. Exhibition entries will then go on display at the Bendigo Library and Hargreaves Street Mall (former Diva shop) for the duration of Victorian Youth Week. City of Greater Bendigo council’s Steven Abbott said the council’s youth strategy aims to create opportunities that promote young people as valuable citizens who make a positive contribution to the community. “We are very grateful to the Victorian government for providing funding for the exhibition, which has allowed us to celebrate young people and recognise their important contributions to the community,” Mr Abbott said. “If you or someone you know contributes to and does amazing things for our community please share yours or their photo and story with us so we can put it in the spotlight.” To submit a photo and story and for further information go to www.yobendigo.com.au/Whats_On

Safe and secure storage

ANGAROO Flat Storage may have the ideal storage solution if you’re between moves or just need extra short or long-term storage. And with Cate and John Keane recently opening their new generation of storage units at their Collins Street facility the timing has never been better. “Since we first opened in July 2016 the community have supported us overwhelmingly, so much so we have been able to increase our unit range of quality storage units to meet demand,” Cate said. “In both build stages it has been important to use local tradespeople throughout, it’s important to us to shop local.” “Our tenants helped to guide us as they continue to give productive feedback, much of this we have implemented in our new units.” Stage 2 included smaller 2x3 metre units and extra-long, seven metre deep

units to accommodate people who need to keep tools and vehicles safe and secure, and still have room for a shelf and additional storage.” In a time when security is paramount all units feature individual alarms, supported with off-site monitoring, unique coded keypad entry, continual pest eradication programs as well as an on-site office, selling boxes, tape and other packing materials. “We even have an on-site bathroom facilities and vending machine for those busy moving days, so you don’t get caught out,” Cate said. “So don’t hesitate to call and secure your unit to store your precious items safely away from prying eyes.” As before, customer service is an integral part at Kangaroo Flat Storage’s on-going success, so call Cate to arrange an inspection and discuss your storage needs.

AM Hamilton from Bendigo Body and Soul has been practicing natural therapies for 30 years and is one of Bendigo’s longest serving, most experienced and qualified Bowen therapists having trained in Australia, the United Kingdom and Italy. Formerly practicing from McIvor Road, Sam relocated to Maiden Gully almost three years ago, to peaceful, tranquil surrounds with plenty of parking and gardens. With many more gardens developing for clients to enjoy, you’ll relax and know you have come to the right place for treatment. Be it natural therapy or a haircut, with Sam being a trade qualified hairdresser for 35 years as well as a Reiki Master for 29 years and a Bowtech Bowen Therapist for 13 years. Also available is Indian head massage,

Raindrop Technique massage, ear candling, detoxing foot spa with foot massage, biochemic medicine using facial and tongue analysis with mineral therapy. And as a qualified aromatherapist, Sam uses Young Living essential oils. Sam has extensive training and knowledge in treating PTSD, depression, anxiety, mums and babies, sports injuries and palliative care Bowen therapy. “You can nurture yourself with a combination of treatments at once or just one treatment at a time,” Sam said. Due to government changes private health insurance rebates are no longer available – cash or card accepted. For your next appointment of mindful nurturing, give Sam a call on 0448 531 056 and like her on Facebook at Bowen Bendigo Body and Soul.

A first for the Bendigo region B

ENDIGO residents and their pets now have greater access to veterinarian services thanks to Dr Susan Bibby and myvet Strathfieldsaye with a new at-home, mobile veterinary service for the region. “We are aware that many people find it difficult to transport their animals to the vet, particularly for people with mobility or transport restrictions, who have multiple pets or pets that don’t like travelling,” Dr Bibby said. “In some circumstances, people may delay or avoid taking their pet to see a veterinarian as the process is too difficult, which can result in poor animal health and increased expense should the animal become ill.” In response to increasing demand, myvet Strathfieldsaye has a fully equipped

vehicle bringing expert veterinary advice, medications and diagnostic equipment straight to the front door of homes throughout Bendigo and the surrounding region. Dr Bibby said the new service will also relieve elderly residents or people with a disability from concern and worry about how they may transport their pets for veterinary appointments. “For many aged people, their pet is their only constant companion and a great source of both affection and stress; this service will eliminate transport issues and allow easy access to pet health services and medication,” Appointments can be made by calling myvet Strathfieldsaye on 5439 5066 or emailing clinic@myvetstrathfieldsaye.com.au

Athletes head to nationals A GROUP of 12 athletes with links to Flack Advisory Bendigo Region clubs will take on the country’s best at next week’s Athletics Australia national championships in Sydney. Events the region’s young guns will tackle include 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 5000m, 400m hurdles, javelin, shot put, high jump, pole vault, and decathlon. Leading contenders in the medal race include South Bendigo’s Emma Berg in the open shot put; Eaglehawk’s Denise Snyder at open high jump and clubmate Kye Mason in the under-18 100m; and South Bendigo’s James Woods in the under-17 pole vault. Mason holds the Bendigo Centre open 100m record of 10.80m and Woods has cleared 4.45 metres at pole vault. Bendigo Harriers will be represented by Gretel Holmes, under-14 400m; and James Miller in the under-18 100m. Eaglehawk’s James Bentley will aim

to cap a great season when he contests the under-16 400m, as will the Two Blues’ Jamie Harrison in the under-20 400m and Lachlan Start at the under-20 javelin. The distance showdowns will feature South Bendigo’s Archie Reid, who hails from Moama, in the under-20 5000m. Two athletes who first competed with Bendigo Harriers, Fraser Symons and Liam Schreck who now compete with Old Melburnians and Melbourne University respectively are also bound for Sydney. Symons has run the 400m hurdles in 51.94 and is the number one seed for the under-20s at the nationals. Schreck will show his all-round skill in the open decathlon. The eight-day meet at Olympic Park has drawn more than 3500 athletes. TWO BLUES: Jamie Harrison.

Wattle Racing powers to epic HPV win BENDIGO’S community Human Powered Vehicle team has overcome a host of mechanical issues, wet weather and fierce competition to pedal their way to victory in the final stages of the 2019 24hour Wonthaggi Human Powered Grand Prix. Wattle Racing was formed in 2015, and operates under the auspice of the Eaglehawk Uniting Church as a local program for young people from all walks of life. Wattle Racing offers a ‘next step’ for young people who participated in the hugely popular Energy Breakthrough program. Made up of more than 50 people, both male and female, they participate in human powered ve-

hicle events from across Victoria and South Australia. The shortest races are six hours long and the longest are 24-hour tests of endurance, teamwork, engineering, fitness and skill. Last weekend’s event also saw outstanding results for Bendigo schools with class wins achieved by Bendigo Senior Secondary College, Eaglehawk Secondary College and Maiden Gully Primary School. The eight Wattle Racing riders who competed as part of the community HPV team took turns to pedal their aerodynamic vehicle around the technical 1.4 kilometre course in Wonthaggi, overcoming a headlight failure, a broken horn, two punctures, fogging wind-

screens and five rollovers to reach the chequered flag first. Team captain Jordan Lucas said it was a team effort of perseverance that put them in a position to vie for the win. “We’d been in and out of the lead through the race, but after our issues at the 21-hour mark we were sitting third overall, 20 minutes down on first and about two minutes behind second place. “Then the leading team (RoMo) had a major front wheel failure: basically, their front wheel broke off and they had to weld their vehicle back together to get it back on track. They were suddenly out of contention.” From there, the remaining riders rode strongly to put in faster

lap times than their competition to take a memorable win, including Rhys Bartlett, who set the fastest lap of the whole race on the penultimate lap. The team of eight riders, led by Jordan Lucas, included Reece Harris, Rhys Bartlett, Sam Buckell, Josh Clarke, Brodie Gooding, Brenton Hassett and Nigel Preston. They were well supported by an experienced pit crew of Jason Treloar and Todd Svanosio Wattle Racing’s ‘Toothless’ team completed 882 kilometres in the 24 hours, 8.4km further than their nearest opponents. The team now has its sights set on a six-hour race in Mt Gambier this weekend with eight more races to follow.

Johnston has always been a prolific shooter, and is rated by some as one of the purest shooters in the game. With a 2018/19 season high with the Blazers of 27 points, Johnston will add great depth to the scoring stocks of the Braves in the NBL1 competition. Matt played with the Ballarat Miners in the SEABL in 2009 and 2010, playing in Victorian and Australian junior teams, and won a BFNL Premiership with Strathfieldsaye Storm in 2014. Head coach David Hogan said Johnston is an athletic guard who can score inside and from the perimeter. “He will give us a real spark this season on the offensive end, while being able to defend a variety of positions at the other end.” The season kicks off this weekend, when the Bendigo Braves travel to Melbourne to take on the Tigers in the NBL1 2019 season opener on Sunday. Bendigo Stadium’s general manager of sport, Ben Harvey this week told ABC Radio the new look competition promised much for players and supporters. “It’s going to be new, it’s going to be exciting, and it tips off this Sunday.” Every Braves home game night will be a double header, with both the men’s and women’s sides taking to the court, and Harvey has an expectation both sides will play finals. He said Megan Moody would be looking to take her charges to back-to-back championships, while for new Braves coach Dave Hogan a finals appearance would be due reward in his first season. “Megan is a very passionate coach and so is David and. I wish them both the best,” he said.

Fighting Miners chase players THE Fighting Miners are facing a challenging Rugby Victoria Championship season, following the loss of up to half of last year’s players. The team’s numbers are well down on last season, and the Miners are now seeking new players to fill out their squad. Coach Dave McDonald said unless the club recruits more players, it faces a ‘difficult season’. Melbourne Rebels players Harrison Goddard and Sam Jeffries will conduct a training session with the Fighting Miners at the Epsom Huntly Reserve on Thursday, April 4.

The pair will assist McDonald by demonstrating the drills and training routines used by professional teams competing in the Super Rugby competition. The Fighting Miners are in pre-season training in the lead-up to the club’s first game in the Rugby Victoria Championship division on April 29. Prior to this, they will travel to Melbourne to take on Brimbank in a practice match on Saturday, April 6. Anyone interested in playing with the Fighting Miners is encouraged to contact coach Dave McDonald on 0439 705 191.

SHORTAGE: The Fighting Miners need more players for this season.

NETBALL A HIT

LEADER: Jack Geary in action. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN

Geary to lead BFNL THE Bendigo Football Netball League has unveiled its 2019 senior football leadership group for the senior football interleague team. The BFNL will play the newly formed Outer East FNL in Bendigo on Saturday, May 18. Experienced BFNL Interleague and AFL Victoria Country representative Jack Geary will lead the BFNL side for the 2019 campaign as senior captain. The star Golden Square on-baller and reigning Michelsen Medalist holds extensive experience as a

BFNL representative footballer and is a proven performer at the elite level, demonstrating his desire to be involved in the AFL Victoria Community Championships tournament. Geary will be aided by dual vice captains who both hold significant footballing experience at an elite level, Adam Baird and Andrew Collins. A teammate of Geary and four-time premiership player with Golden Square, Baird was awarded the Derrick Filo Medal as the best interleague player against Hampden, before

joining both Geary and Collins as Victoria Country representatives. Completing an impressive double in 2018, Baird was also named best on ground to add to his ever growing footballing resume. Collins brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role, having played at the highest level with AFL clubs Richmond and Carlton. He won back-to-back premierships with Bridgewater, before taking the reigns as the senior coach of Sandhurst and leading the team to multiple finals ap-

pearances, including a preliminary final appearance in 2018. Collins was the Derrick Filo Medalist in 2017. The under-18 team has also selected their leadership group, including three previous BFNL interleague representatives in 2018 as bottom-age players. Mitch Rovers from Kangaroo Flat, Sandhurst’s Lachy Baker and Will Tobin from South Bendigo will use their previous interleague experience to lead the under-18 squad as they strive to achieve success in 2019.

NETBALL lovers have voted with their feet ahead of this weekend’s blockbuster action at Bendigo Stadium. The Melbourne Vixens will take to the court for some pre-season practice matches ahead of the 2019 Suncorp Super Netball season. The Vixens will host West Coast Fever, Collingwood Magpies and Queensland Firebirds, with four games between the teams being played across the weekend. The Magpies will play the Fever from 3pm Saturday, with the Vixens taking on the Firebirds at 5pm. On Sunday, the Fever plays the Firebirds at 11am, while the Vixens are due to take on the Magpies from 1pm. A Bupa Victorian Netball League match will be held as a curtain raiser on Saturday 30 March at 1.30pm, with the Wilson Storage Southern Saints up against the North East Blaze. More than 3000 tickets have already been sold for each day’s action so far.

TALENT ON SHOW

BENDIGO was one of nine centres to host a select group of Basketball Victoria Country under-14 skills day participants last weekend. The region’s best under-14s experienced an enjoyable day of basket-

ball education and skills development, and learned the elite country tactics and skills used in representative state duties and beyond in their basketball journeys. The BVC under-14 Regional Academy forms the basis for Australian Country Junior Basketball Cup and Southern Cross Challenge selection in the relevant age groups for 2020.

AUSKICK AT ST PETER’S DEAKIN University and the AFL will host a free community day in Bendigo on Tuesday afternoon for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to watch and try out NAB AFL Auskick. The event, running from 4pm at St Peter’s Primary School, is part of Deakin’s AllPlay Footy program, which promotes Auskick as a safe and fun activity that all kids can participate in. Children and their families will have the chance to participate in AFL skills, games and activities, as well as traditional Indigenous games. There will also be a free barbecue and goodie bags. To register, visit www.surveymonkey.com/r/83Z7NMZ or email Jordan.knight@ bdac.com.au for more information. Registration also opens from 3:30pm on the day at St Peter’s, Fenton Street, North Bendigo.

Braves chase finals

THE Champions IGA Braves have signed young guns Danielle O’Toole and Jessica Mangan for NBL1 2019. Both athletes are a product of the basketball pathways in Bendigo, with O’Toole playing all her junior basketball with the Braves and most recently being awarded league leading scorer and league MVP with the Braves at the Country Basketball League grand finals. Mangan grew up in Kyneton but also played a lot of junior basketball in Bendigo and has been part of the Braves senior team as a development player in previous seasons. Braves head coach Megan Moody said she was excited to elevate the pair of emerging stars to the senior list. “It is simply reward for effort for Dani (O’Toole) and Mango (Mangan). “I’m pleased to give them this opportunity, but it’s through hard work and consistent performances that they have earned their spots. “I’ve watched both girls come through the junior pathways with

the Braves and to now get this senior opportunity is so exciting for me, I can only imagine how they feel.” O’Toole said she was pleased to get the chance to wear the senior uniform for the Braves. ‘I have worked so hard for this shot and I will make the absolute most of whatever court time I get.” Mangan said as a development player with the senior team, she had gained a taste for playing at this level and had been working hard ever since to ensure that this opportunity presented itself. “We have a great group and continue to push each other to be better all the time.” Meanwhile, the Bendigo Bank Braves have confirmed the signing of Maryborough local, Matt Johnston. Averaging 14.67 points per game for the Maryborough Blazers in the CBL this past season, Johnston has done enough to impress Braves head coach, David Hogan, and earn himself a 2019 NBL1 roster spot.
