Weekly leads the way THE Bendigo Weekly has scooped the pools at a statewide awards ceremony. The Weekly won two journalism awards, a photography award and the award for Overall Excellence at the Victorian Country Press Association event. Revelations that illegal synthetic drugs were on sale in Bendigo shops won journalist Rosemary Sorensen the main reporting award. The Weekly’s campaign to reestablish an abortion clinic in the city, the synthetic drugs story and

the revelations about the cashedup local federal election campaign of the Liberal Party saw the paper take home the main journalism award. Andrew Perryman’s photo of then-Opposition Leader Tony Abbott during a visit to the Bendigo hospital won him the main news photography award. The judges were full of praise for the Weekly. “There is no other way of saying this – this paper continues to suck me right in. It is simply irresistible,” they said.

“The team working on this paper are obviously in harmony and the pride in their product shines through. “Throughout this paper, community concerns are addressed and crisp reporting and writing pervaded all pages. “This newspaper has also clearly learnt the lesson that journalism is conversation. “Well done to a richly deserved winner which continues to push and promote very high standards for our country newspapers.” Weekly general manager Peter


Kennedy said he was proud of his team. “Not only were we recognised for our second-to-none news coverage, but the entire paper was the big winner,” he said. “The Overall Excellence Award is not just for news, but for every aspect of our paper, from writing, to advertising, real estate and classifieds. “We are proudly 100 per cent local. We know and love our community and we think it shows in the passion we have for it and for the Weekly.”

Five stars for Shamrock EXCLUSIVE By ANTHONY RADFORD

BENDIGO’S most famous hotel has unveiled $9 million plans to create the city’s first five-star accommodation. Hotel Shamrock owner Jim Hogan has lodged an application with Greater Bendigo council for stage one of the plan, to build nine serviced apartments in the historic venue. The $4 million stage also includes the installation of an indoor lap pool and gym. The new rooms will be on the first and second floor of the Pall Mall side of the building, in the old Exchange Hotel. The apartments will all have two bedrooms, with four of them facing Pall Mall and Rosalind Park.

Mr Hogan said he hoped to start construction within six months. “This will be the first fivestar accommodation in Bendigo, which will be fantastic for the city,� he said. “Providing that goes all OK, we will then move onto the fifth floor of the main Shamrock building.

big. They include two bedrooms, a lounge room, an office, a kitchenette and a laundry facility. “They will be great for the hotel and great for the city of Bendigo as well.� Stage one works will be mostly internal, and heritage authorities have given their support to the plans. “The location and type of

works proposed are such that there is no detriment to the appearance of the existing Shamrock Hotel or other nearby heritage buildings,� the application said. “The proposal will assist in enhancing the services available to visitors and tourists.�


Superstore sets sights on city’s north

GROWTH AREA: The new Bunnings store is to be built at Epsom.

EXCLUSIVE BENDIGO is set to get another Bunnings Warehouse. The Bendigo Weekly can reveal a new Bunnings will be built on the Midland Highway at Epsom, between Elders and Centre State Self Storage. The $9.3 million development will put 11,695 square metres of retail space on the 2.7 hectare property, which is currently a vacant block. The main warehouse takes up 6453 square metres and there will

be 286 car parks on the Midland Highway side of the site. Bunnings has recognised the need for a new warehouse. “Bunnings considers there is a growing need for bulky good retail outlets to serve the growing population of Bendigo and extend Bendigo’s regional retail influence,� the planning application said. “The economic analysis report ... clearly demonstrated there are significant economic benefits from a Bunnings Warehouse to service the northern parts of urban Bendigo, future residential

growth areas and a large rural catchment. “Bendigo, and in particular the northern parts of urban Bendigo, and the large rural catchment require a Bunnings Warehouse. “It is not suitable to locate within the well-established town centre of Bendigo with limited opportunities for the development of this type within the traditional retail centre and its immediate periphery with the other Bunnings Warehouse at Kangaroo Flat.� As the development is in an appropriately zoned area, there is a chance the application will not

need to be advertised. “Council policy acknowledges the growing need by including the subject land ad land of the north, south and opposite in a Commercial two Zone to encourage a range of uses.� Greater Bendigo council Planning and Development director Prue Mansfield said the plans were good news. “From our perspective this is a great sign of investor confidence in our city,� she said. Hume and Iser Home Hardware also recently announced $5 million expansion plans.

GREATER Bendigo council is holding a special Let’s Talk Rubbish event featuring displays and music made from recycled products in Hargreaves Mall between 11am and 2pm on Thursday. Mayor Barry Lyons said the aim of the event is to promote the council’s draft Waste and Resource Management Strategy which is on public exhibition until December 6. “We also want to highlight the importance of rubbish and recycling as a resource and how one’s trash is another’s treasure,� he said. “Let’s Talk Rubbish will feature a display of Ag Art costumes from the Elmore Field Days made from recycled farm products, as well as art and sculpture, barbecues and heaters made from recycled materials. “There will also be musical performances by Deano Stanton who creates wonderful music on percussion instruments made from junk.� Master of Ceremonies for the event is Ian McBurney, a sustainability mentor and educator who will also run special activities and perform a magic show on the day. “Staff from the council will also be in attendance to answer any questions about the strategy,� Cr Lyons said. He said residents are encouraged to come along to the Hargreaves Mall, enjoy the entertainment on offer and take a few minutes to look at the key recommendations of the draft Waste and Resource Management Strategy and provide feedback.

On the brink of change

With house prices on the rise Long Gully teeters on the edges of gentrification. But is it ready?

What they said...

special report By CHRISTINE McGINN

BENDIGO’S most disadvantaged suburb, Long Gully, will be showered in opportunities and challenges as gentrification reigns. Wealth and social equality will be the driving forces, rallying community leaders to take notice. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ 2011 report, Long Gully was in the state’s top two per cent of the most disadvantaged suburbs. The Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas data ranked suburbs according to their levels of socioeconomic advantage or disadvantage; their access to resources and the ability to participate in the community. But, is the struggling suburb really ready for change? Long Gully is the latest suburb to benefit from Bendigo’s housing boom. Property analysts RP data indicate that the median housing value rose 10.8 per cent to $234,527 in Long Gully, for the year to August 2013, strides ahead of the rest of the city. CR Martin Real Estate director Clive Martin dubbed Long Gully as the next big location to buy. “Long Gully will become the next area, I believe, the next sought-after area to buy in,” he said. “Certain parts of the suburb will soon be in high demand.” Community leaders are gearing up to ride the wave of gentrification and reap its benefits while balancing Bendigo’s rapid population growth. But they are urging locals to be wary. Long Gully resident and community leader Clare Fountain said the gentrification of Long Gully was a “double-edged sword”. “The property growth is good for home owners in the area… the financial wealth increase and equity to them,” she said. “But the negative side far outweighs the positives. The majority of people in Long Gully wouldn’t be able to benefit from that growth. “The gentrification of Long Gully is actually disempowering the disadvantaged... they will be

forced to move out. There is no benefit to them.” The fear is Long Gully’s housing boom will result in residents who are unable to afford the increased costs of living, having to relocate. “We have a real mix with Long Gully, industrial, residential and a fair bit of public housing,” Greater Bendigo councillor Peter Cox said. “As house prices go up, this

It would be good to lose the title of Bong Gully. It isn’t a bad place prices people out of the area.” Concerns are also being raised about investors benefitting at the expense of the Long Gully community. “It would be a real shame if Long Gully was no longer affordable for its residents,” Ms Fountain said. “It would be a shame if the low-income earners were forced to move out because of the people on the other scale.” But St Matthew’s Church coordinator and resident Dave Fagg, said gentrification isn’t an “insurmountable” threat. “Gentrification is inevitable but, not wholly a bad thing,” he said. “The main challenge is people who buy in the area but treat the area as their hotel. They work

Clare Fountain: “The gentrification of Long Gully is actually disempowering the disadvantaged.”

and socialise outside of Long Gully. That’s when it becomes a dormant suburb.” Mr Fagg is calling for investors buying in the area, to give back to the community. “Basically investors are benefitting from the low house prices. They drive prices up and make it inaccessible for home owners. “A small percentage of the purchase price should go back to a community fund to develop services and infrastructure.” Regardless, what Long Gully has in spades is unwavering, community input and fierce resolve. Resident Pam Powers said it was important to embrace change and defy outsider attitudes to the area. “It would be good to lose the title of Bong Gully. It isn’t a bad place,” she said. “I have a connection with the suburb, like my friends, family and work. Connection is a big thing about any place.” Cr Cox said the suburb should bask in the new wealth, to reflect the vibrancy of the community. “Residents are taking the stigma out of their area and seriously want to enjoy the friendships and people in their area.” Long Gully’s best attributes – excellent services and an enduring sense of community – stand firm. “The stigma doesn’t serve anyone and it inaccurately describes the residents and my home,” Ms Fountain said. “A lot of people who drive through don’t get to rub shoulders with the residents. Long Gully has new opportunity, when, and if, it chooses to see it.”

Project is Haven sent


WORK will begin next month on Bendigo’s $6 million homeless housing complex, Sidney Myer Haven. Haven; Home, Safe is revolutionising the assistance and housing arrangements for local homeless people aged 30 or under. The 23-unit purpose built, medium-term transitional residental complex will support people wishing to break the homeless cycle. Haven; Home, Safe chief executive officer Ken Marchingo said the program was the “most exciting project” in his 30 years of work. “We have crisis, transitional and long-term housing but we don’t have any medium transitional housing [in the community] for those people who really need to fatten up their skills and attributes,” he said. “This is an intentionallydesigned program that supports people who have a good chance

of moving on with their lives.” Participants will have individualised development programs to meet their goals. Haven; Home, Safe Communication and Marketing director Sue Masters said it was an Australian-first program, tailored to meet the needs of the community.

The program is for people who need a hand up not a hand out “The program is for people who need a hand up not a hand out,” she said. “We will select people who are suitable. “Each individual will have different needs and provide the skill sets to stabilise and enable them

singles, families and couples. “We aren’t taking people off the street,” Mr Marchingo said. “They will be people with whom we have an existing relationship and who want to get on with their lives. We want to help them do that.” Depending on their income, residents will pay 25 to 29 per cent of their income in rent. The State Government, the Yulgilbar Foundation, Sidney Myer Fund, Bendigo for Homeless Youth, Community Foundation for Central Victoria and Horizon House have funded the project. Mr Marchingo said the fully funded project would not drain the public purse. “The 40 cents for every dollar of debt does not exist here. This means we can put that money back into programs for residents,” he said. “This could be a very powerful model for the State Government to use.” Sidney Myer Haven is expected to open before Christmas, 2014.

Eat a healthy rainbow BENDIGO families are set to benefit from a collaborative project that’s seeing health prevention put back into local hands. The new project has been introduced by the St Luke’s Anglicare-facilitated, Communities for Children, an initiative to support children and families in Greater Bendigo. In partnership with Goodstart Early Learning, the Salvation Army, Peppergreen Farm and Greater Bendigo council’s Healthy Together program, the joint project this week launched an “Eat a healthy rainbow” resource kit, with the aim to encourage and engage children around the subject of healthy eating. The kit includes a food chart, games, jokes, art projects, a vegetable-planting kit, colouring-in

sheets and information booklets. Research reveals that 78 per cent of Australian children aged between four and eight are not eating enough vegetables and nine out of 10 Loddon Mallee region adults do not meet the vegetable guidelines. Communities for Children program manager Sue KingSmith said the project is taking small, important steps to assist positive change and raise awareness about the relationship of healthy eating to a child’s health and lifestyle. “The new rainbow kit aims to encourage local families to learn, change, grow and become champions for their own children’s health and development. We see this kit as an opportunity to bring about change and the potential to sustain that change,” she said.

LOOKING AHEAD: Council Planning and Development director Prue Mansfield with place manager Philip DeAraugo at the Gillies site. THE transformation of the old Gillies factory site in Garsed Street continues, as contractors take away old and unnecessary equipment and building material over the next four weeks. Asbestos has been removed from the site and the next stage of works are about to begin, including the removal of old air conditioning equipment, redundant ovens, lifts, non-structural timber stud walls, plasterboard, damaged glass and roof cladding. Greater Bendigo council Planning and Development director Prue Mansfield said once the old factory has been cleared, surveyors will begin taking detailed survey of the red brick building.

“The survey will enable architects to come up with some fantastic designs to convert the existing building and add a new building at the rear of the site to make way for inner-city apartments,” she said. “The factory’s open spaces contained within the shell of the building lend themselves to being reused and adapted into something that still preserves a piece of Bendigo’s history. “There is also a significant amount of space at the back of the main building that could be developed to create additional buildings that complement the heritage site. “This is the sort of development

the city’s planning controls are hoping to facilitate and bring old buildings back to life with a modern and useful twist.” The main Gillies buildings were built between the 1920s and 1940s and are an example of Bendigo’s rich industrial history. The old factory is owned by a Melbourne property developer, The Riverside Group, who have been working with Bendigo’s E+ Architecture on redevelopment of the site. Council and developers are looking to create a residential and commercial development on the site over the next few years.

Yet education topped her list, noting the women in her family were the first to achieve tertiary qualifications. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Public education has served our nation well. I will continue to advocate strongly for our public education system.â&#x20AC;? Praising the unions for their unwavering support, Ms Chesters also thanked her family, electoral team, United Voice and â&#x20AC;&#x153;trouble makers in the galleryâ&#x20AC;?.

HELPING HANDS: Volunteers pack supplies for the Philippines.

Typhoon relief effort grows THE Bendigo community has rallied to the cause to help those suffering after Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Following last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story in the Bendigo Weekly, a wide range of goods were donated, and importantly a lot of people are still donating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are just so generous,â&#x20AC;? volunteer Lanie Gardner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The volunteers spent last Saturday packing the goods.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The room where the goods are being kept at St Liborius is full so we have to pack again this weekend.â&#x20AC;? Donations of clothing, bedding, towels and toiletries can be dropped at St Liborius, 50 Panton Street, Eaglehawk or St Kilianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbytery 161 McCrae Street, Bendigo. Boxes of clothing and donated items have been sent already. Cash donations can be sent via Father Jun Amaya on 0459 356 917.

GREATER Bendigo council has stuck by its decision to host the Christmas Festive Lunch on December 23. Despite being held annually on December 25, the feast will be served two days earlier. Locals are concerned about individuals who may feel isolated or lonely at Christmas and wish to spend the day in company. Mayor Barry Lyons launched the event and its change of date at the Bendigo Basketball stadium on Monday. Despite community concerns about the date change, councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wellbeing director Ms Gordon said they wanted to ensure the event was sustainable and filled with the Christmas spirit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to get more businesses on board to help people connect during the festive season,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Council also encourages local churches to take back the Christmas day lunch into their communities to ensure people are not alone during the festive season.â&#x20AC;? Ms Gordon said council stepped in last year after local community groups were unable to continue just merely three weeks out from the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do not want to take away from the spirit of Christmas, rather complement it. This allows community groups who still want to put events on December 25 to do so,â&#x20AC;? Ms Gordon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bendigo is so generous of spirit. If you know someone alone during Christmas invite them into your home to join you.â&#x20AC;? Bendigo Stadium chief executive officer Jason Wallace and Bendigo Volunteer Resource Centre manager Helen Yorston also attended the launch. Mr Wallace said the stadium was supporting the lunch to ensure community spirit during the festive season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a community event and we are a true community leader,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to show Christmas spirit.â&#x20AC;?

The Bendigo Stadium has joined the festivities, donating the venue free of charge and meals free of charge. Bendigo Stadium has also contributed $10,000 to the event. Mrs Yorston said local groups are invited to discuss their community Christmas day plans with the centre.

Local businesses are asked to sponsor a table for 10 at $300, or a chair for $30. Residents can also reserve their seat by contacting the Bendigo Volunteer Resource Centre by phoning 5441 1404. Financial donations can be made via telephone 5434 6000.

Helping to say goodbye An Angel Bed, bought by Bendigo couple Josh and Chantel White, through their Angel Bed fundraiser, has arrived at Bendigo Health. The Angel bed, a first of its kind for Bendigo, is a cooling system that allows babies who have died to remain with their families so that they are not required to be cooled in a traditional mortuary environment.

The cot has been specifically designed to allow bereaved parents, like Josh and Chantel, to spend an extended amount of time with their baby in order to grieve and say goodbye as a family. “For parents who experience stillbirth, the opportunity to hold your child can be limited,” Josh said.

“This angel bed is now here to support families who experience stillbirth.” “In 2008, at 22 weeks and four days I went into premature labour and two days later I gave birth to our first child, Lily Grace White,” Chantel said. “She was stillborn. At this lifechanging moment, the staff at Bendigo Health showed us care,

support and commitment. We said thank you, we wrote them letters, we asked for them when we had our next two daughters.

Danni is a good sport

WHEELCHAIR tennis champion Danni Di Toro was in Bendigo this week to shoot a commercial. It was all part of Foundation 97’s statewide Fundraiser – Lucky I’m Alive Day. What’s more, students from Weeroona College (Year 10) have taken on the challenge to shoot and edit the commercial. Foundation 97 has worked with the children to come up with a concept and script with help from media teacher Tim Lawrence. Danni has competed at five Paralympic Games. She was injured when a wall collapsed on her at a swimming

carnival when she was 14, resulting in paraplegia. While in rehabilitation, she met wheelchair basketball player Sandy Blythe. Sandy was a rehabilitation worker at the unit and inspired Danni. As Australia’s foremost female wheelchair tennis player, Danni came second in the 2011 Australian Open, and at the London Paralympics, she finished ninth after battling injuries. In 1999, she was named Australian Paralympian of the Year. Danni decided to retire from elite tennis in 2005 to focus on her studies.

LAST YEAR: Greg Bickley, Nick Papaz, Steve Carter and Matt Leonard enjoy the sunshine.

Blokes are back THE Blokes’ Biggest Ever Lunch is on again today, and it will be the biggest ever. More than 400 blokes will gather at the Civic Gardens from noon, then move over to the Tom Tweed Stadium for lunch. Organiser Keith Sutherland said he was thankful for the community support. “This fundraising event just keeps getting bigger each year,” he said. “Its number one goal is to let blokes know the importance of prostate cancer checks.

“More than 3300 Australian men die each year from the effects of prostate cancer so that’s why we are trying to spread the message of regular checks to help save lives.” This year’s main guest speaker is well-known Homicide Squad detective Senior Sergeant Ron Iddles. Det Sgt Iddles has investigated more than 300 homicides, including the murder of Jill Meagher. Rob Nelson will also give an insight into his prostate cancer journey. “Importantly, the lunch

will also raise much-needed funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia to continue their work,” Mr Sutherland said. “This year with the generosity of local businesses we have about 40 auction lots and 20 raffle prizes totalling about $50,000 – so there is something for everyone.” “We have some fantastic sponsors this year and I am always very appreciative of the support of media sponsors Bendigo Weekly and WIN TV who have helped to get the message out.”

Climate change not political The worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population is approaching 10 billion, and the need of never ending growth and productivity by all countries, has resulted in the continual abuse by the human race of the only planet we have. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be right mateâ&#x20AC;? wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fix this looming debacle.

I WISh to clarify the City of Greater Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in the hosting of the community Christmas lunch. The council is not responsible for lunch on Christmas Day nor does it make the decision of it being on or off. If other organisations want to host a community lunch on Christmas Day, then we encourage them to do so. The council and the Bendigo Volunteer Resource Centre is proudly supporting the Bendigo Stadium who are hosting a Festive Season Community Lunch on December 23 and we are encouraging businesses to make a donation so it can be a success. Council staff, together with a small number of other individuals, including local media, volunteered to save the Christmas Day event last year at very short notice. The subsequent lunch at the Town hall highlighted

that the venue is not suitable for such a big event with some people having to eat their meal in the corridor. It also highlighted that in addition to the terrific work of volunteers, such an event also needs expert caterers and event managers. It was not an option to use the Town hall this year as we would have needed to cap attendees and turn people away. A larger venue with trained staff was needed. The Bendigo Stadium very generously offered to donate their venue free of charge, including expert catering and event staff, and to make a significant financial contribution towards a lunch. however, they do not open on Christmas Day. The council believes that the Festive Season Community Lunch on December 23 can be a success. The intent is for people not to be alone during the festive season. The council, together with the BVRC, is communicating with schools, churches and

community organisations to invite the more vulnerable members of our community to the Stadium celebration. The council is also seeking information about who may need to be connected into other support services on Christmas Day. The question has been posed: where is the spirit of Christmas? The spirit of Christmas in Greater Bendigo is thriving. This is evident in the generosity shown by Bendigo Stadium and through the support from BVRC. The council looks forward to others supporting this important community function and if other groups want to host lunches or other events on Christmas Day, we encourage them to do so and we will work with them to promote their events at every opportunity. If there are groups with the skills and abilities to host and cater a function utilising Council facilities, then I would encourage them to contact me on 5434 6000.

Riding the wave This is something that must be celebrated. It is not something to laugh about or dismiss. Increased house prices are usually the start of great things to come. It is, however, easy to get caught up in the rising tide, but the Long Gully community seems ready for it. One thing Long Gully has in spades is community spirit. They care for each other and they care for their community. They know this is coming. It was community leaders who contacted the Bendigo Weekly, asking us to look into what was happening and highlight their thoughts. They are already making moves to ensure no one in their community is left behind by the growth. They know it is easy for people to lose out when others succeed. They see it every day. They must be congratulated for having the foresight to get in front of the curve, ensuring that nobody drowns as the tide rises.

examples of this. Bunnings Warehouse is setting up another store, this time at Epsom, an example of Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residential growth. This comes on the back of $5 million expansion plans by Hume & Iser. We also reveal the expansion plans of The Hotel Shamrock, perhaps our most recognisable building. Both these developments show confidence in our economy. The Shamrock expansion will make news across Australia, and will allow the city to take that next step. Bendigo needs five-star accommodation, and these plans are very welcome. The quicker they are approved, the better it is for the city and its reputation. The waters are still rising, and there are a lot of waves to catch.

WITH due respect to our local state and federal members of parliament, the rest of us have probably never held the majority of politicians in such low regard as we do right now. And our politicians have only themselves to blame. In recent years, the disconnect between what ordinary Australians both expect from their politicians and what we ultimately get, has only grown, as the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view of pollies plumbs new depths. Politicians walk a fine line, not most of the time, but practically all of the time in the modern 24/7 domineering news cycle. I can understand, and accept, why a political figure might accept an invitation to attend a corporate box for a sporting event, for example, and why that might actually constitute official business.

And our politicians have only themselves to blame that should already be in place. On a similar note, last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s furore in the Victorian Legislative Assembly that led to the Speaker shutting down the parliament until November 26 should not have happened. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad look and an embarrassment to this state that something as important as our political system can be brought

the right person for the job offline, and thereby resolve the matter in a way that would not have brought the house into such disrepute. The office of Speaker is too important for this situation to continue, let alone exist in the first place. twitter@peterkennedy23

A SAYING that gets a good run in Bendigo leadership circles is: â&#x20AC;&#x153;a rising tide lifts all boatsâ&#x20AC;?. It represents a feeling that could easily explain the strategy behind most of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth. Whether it is academic or instinctual, it is working. Long Gully is an example of this. Ever since the goldrush, Long Gully has been perceived as â&#x20AC;&#x153;working classâ&#x20AC;?. There is no doubt it has been left behind as Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy has grown. Official statistics list it as the most disadvantaged suburb in Bendigo, and one of the most disadvantaged in Victoria. However, its closeness to the CBD and the new $1 billion hospital and, ironically, its affordability, are starting to pay off. It could be argued it was only a matter of time before things started to turn around. In Melbourne and Sydney, suburbs such as Fitzroy, Carlton and Paddington have been â&#x20AC;&#x153;gentrifiedâ&#x20AC;? for a long time. The term â&#x20AC;&#x153;gentrificationâ&#x20AC;? is a tad patronising, but has come to personify the type of change Long Gully is on the cusp of.

native title for theatre

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, November 22, 2013

GATHERING: The ceremony was a happy occasion for all. Photo: STEVE KENDALL


Bendigo’s new $25.8 million theatre has been named the Ulumbarra theatre, meaning gathering people together. greater Bendigo mayor Barry Lyons announced the name at last week’s dja dja Wurrung native Title claim signing ceremony. “Ulumbarra means gather together or meeting place in the language of the local dja dja Wurrung people and i don’t think we could have chosen a better name for our new state-of-the-art theatre which is set to become Central Victoria’s premier meeting place for the community to gather together,” he said. “The name was chosen following a formal process which involved calling for the public to put forward name suggestions. “over 250 entries were submit-

ted and a large number of these called for an indigenous name specifically Ulumbarra. “We think it’s a very relevant and positive name that respects the indigenous history of our great region.” Victorian education Minister Martin dixon said the name was very fitting, unifying and bringing the community together.

“it also reflects the nature of the development in that it draws together a variety of community uses and functions on the one site,” he said. The Weekly reported in March last year the new name was likely to be linked to the Aboriginal culture. in March, council and the Bendigo senior secondary College

urged the community to submit their name ideas. BssC principal dale Pearce said the school and council wanted to cast the net wider, to include the community’s thoughts about a good name for the theatre. “The old gaol is such an iconic building and the name must take into account the heritage and history of the site,” Mr Pearce said.

“it must also be a name that will be embraced by the general community.” The final name was chosen and assessed in regulation with the state government’s guidelines for geographic names 2010. The 1000-seat theatre is being built in the former goal and will be completed in early 2015.

Girton chasing another win sTUdenTs from girton grammar are geared up to compete in the RACV energy Breakthrough Challenge next weekend. The school has three teams heading to Maryborough over four days until sunday. Twenty seven students, eight staff and many parent helpers will spend the four days camped at Maryborough as they compete in this endurance event. The energy breakthrough is a program

designed to provide opportunities for students, teachers, parents and local industry to work together to design and construct a vehicle, a machine or innovation in technology that will represent an “energy breakthrough”. in 2012, girton won the eeV petrol class vehicle category and will return this year with a determination to retain their winning form.

Try out for the triathlon AUSTRALIAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S biggest childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triathlon series was announced and registrations opened for its Bendigo event on Monday. The series aims to get youngsters moving. Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Mark Fountain joined more than 400 children at Girton Grammar School to inspire them to get off the couch and have fun by registering for the 2014 Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon.

Head of Junior School Don Thompson said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about promoting new opportunities for our students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our kids love being involved and are very active with their sports outside of school too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a really safe course they run. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about participation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about competition to win but about taking part.â&#x20AC;?

The Bendigo event was a record-breaker last year. It is tipped to be a sell out in 2014 with a capacity of 900 anticipated to swim, ride and run around the specially designed course at the Queen Elizabeth Oval on Sunday, March 2, 2014. The event is open for children from seven to 15. Registrations are open now at

The coat of many colours Steve mulls over the use of coloured ribbons to indicate support of a charity


OSEPH was well prepared. I’m not talking about the Bible Joseph, but Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s version. Joseph had a technicolour dreamcoat. This put him in the great position of being ready for every special day and charity event. White Ribbon day is this week. Joseph would have had one. Last week we had to wear orange for the SES, Joseph had that covered too. Last Friday was wear blue for diabetes, too easy. We see perhaps the best colour in use by the ovarian cancer awareness group with their teal ribbons. Bone cancer and bladder cancer share yellow. You get my drift? There are plenty more colours out there, all in use, and Joseph was prepared. Some charities have had to resort to dual colour ribbons, such is the use of coloured ribbons as an awareness tool. Today is a big day in

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, November 22, 2013

Bendigo as the Bendigo Weekly helps put together the Blokes Biggest Lunch. Prostate cancer uses a light blue ribbon, and this lunch is all about raising awareness of the disease. There will be beer and lunch and some talks by people who know the score, and there will be auctions to raise money for research into this disease. Bendigo icon (I have to say that he’s the Weekly chairman) Keith Sutherland pulls the event together, and manages to extract money from people and make it fun at the same time. There’s a lot of fun around the message, get your prostate checked. There’s not a good way to say it guys. Digital examination is the best way to go. By that I mean a finger not a photograph. I have touched on the subject before, but it’s one of those facts of life. We can only be thankful there are people around to raise funds to try and tackle the

issue of these illnesses. Thanks to the fundraising and research, some cancers are having less of an impact on patients. There’s a way to go, but these events while outwardly fun, are for a good cause. The Weekly is also involved in the Mother’s Day Classic, an event which is growing from year to year. It seems so many people have been touched by these diseases, but there is a growing chance of survival with some thanks to people power and their fundraising. So while you may expect

me to be cynical as is my way, I draw the line here. What’s the harm in showing you care with a coloured ribbon? This army of people who work for the greater good is something to be proud of, and perhaps Joseph was on the money with his amazing technicolour dreamcoat, or coat of many colours as Genesis calls it. I suppose to those who follow the Bible, a man who is aware of all the ailments, and has the ribbon to prove it, can work towards fixing them, and there’s nothing wrong with that. twitter: @stevekendall1

dear dotty... Dear Dotty I would like to share the following story with you: Last weekend I went with a group of friends to a prebooked lunch in a restaurant in a Central Victoria township. I won’t identify the venue as I think they will go broke without my help anyway. We were a party of 20 and the restaurant insisted we all be seated by 12.30 sharp in order to expiate efficient service. Two hours later, Dotty, two hours later we were finally fed. The fact that there was a set menu didn’t seem to make any difference to their singular inability to put food on the table. While we were waiting for our meals we were drinking wine which went directly, do not pass go, to our heads. I really wanted to sneak off to the servo for a pie but instead bought two flat loaves of stale Turkish bread which were for sale on the restaurant counter. I tore the bread apart and we fell upon it like starving refugees in a tent city. The restaurant had an open kitchen so we all glared at the staff – some half dozen of them – while

Illustration: “Wildey”

they jumped up and down on the one spot. I particularly wanted to kill the waiter, the one who was wearing a kilt and tattoos and who was oh so carefully drying the wine glasses and holding them up to the light to make sure there were no smears on them. When the meal finally arrived it was lukewarm and indifferent but none of us really cared at this stage because we were all away with the pixies. Hannah, White Hills Dear Hannah, Hope you’re feeling better now you’ve shared that. People who decide to run their own restaurant over a bottle of Shiraz in the safety of their converted stables in Fitzroy should be made to pass a test before inflicting their ineptitude on the general eating public. Two hours is a ridiculously long time. I’m surprised you didn’t lead the charge and attack the staff with your cutlery. Twitter: @DearDotty

B & B Basil is located out at Rowena Street in East Bendigo where father and daughter team George Bobin and Susie Young employ up to 30 locals. The business kicked off growing hydroponic basil in

pots when George and Susie saw a gap in the market for locally produced herbs. From there things have flourished, literally, particularly expanding into the ever-sopretty microgreens that you might see scattered across a dish or ever so carefully placed with tweezers. Part of the charm of B & B Basil is the wonderful community they

Culinary questions with Jody and Brent Loam of the Willow Room Restaurant in Heathcote


OOD related questions answered. Send your questions to foodfossickers@bendigoweekly. Q. What is the best way to cook kale? A. For cooking kale or any other robust leaf vegetable like cavelo nero or chard, it is best to blanch the leaves quickly in boiling salted water first.

This helps to break down the leaf and start the cooking process. Once blanched and drained, kale can either be used straight away sautĂŠed in butter and garlic or it is fantastic chopped and put through a hearty soup or stew.

Q. What are some uses for our great crop of fresh broad beans?

and Persian cooking. It is also what gives Turkish delight that distinctive flavour. Try it drizzled over poached figs and ice cream as a great summer dessert.

A. Broad beans are jon almost every restaurant menu as well this time of the year. If they are young, fresh and small, simply pot the whole beans out of the shell and use them raw in salads. The larger ones blanch quickly in boiling salted water then peel and crush them with feta, mint, lemon zest and serve on grilled bread.

Q. What are the benefits of using buttermilk for baking? A. Buttermilk has lots of benefits when added to baked foods like cakes, breads. It is a healthy alternative to cream or sour cream and the natural sourness adds flavour and keeps baked goods moist and tender by breaking down the gluten in the flour. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also now a very common ingredient in most restaurant kitchens and is used in recipes from fried chicken to salad dressings.

Q. What is rose water made from and what is it used for? A. Pure rose water is the distilled water of roses mainly from the production of rose oil. It is often used in Middle Eastern, Greek

have developed at their greenhouses. Up to 30 local restaurants use their products, but what I was amazed at is that many of those local chefs are heading out first thing in the morning to pick the microherbs and flowers themselves they need for that day’s service. Sonia explains how it works in their busy family: on a school day morning she heads into Masons early to start prep while Nick and the kids head out to B & B Basil before school to pick what the restaurant needs. The kids each have a speciality that they are responsible for collecting. Sonia says that there is a great collegiate atmosphere out at the greenhouses as local chefs catch up and pick their goods.

Woodhouse as to who gets to a certain herb first. Doesn’t that just show how special our Bendigo restaurants are – we don’t need restaurants with their own gardens, instead we have a great community built around a great supplier. But you don’t have to wait until you are in one of our local restaurants to eat the B & B Basil products. The pots of basil are in constant supply at Bendigo Wholefoods – having one sitting on your kitchen window sill opens up lots of possibilities for flavour, especially as we move into the warmer months. The micro salad herbs are also great, particularly when entertaining or turning a standard meal into something special - a great way to show off another Bendigo product.

Summer words W

HILE some readers might be compiling a summer reading list, others may well be considering writing a book themselves. Before venturing out, however, it’s best to recognise that writing isn’t something that happens when you shut your eyes and hope for the best. For many years now, writing has been treated like a craft, such as painting, where the technical aspects and associated skills are taught at university level. Castlemaine writer and acclaimed novelist, Carmel Bird, wrote Dear Writer in 1988. She has re-published it as Dear Writer Revisited and it is still wonderfully helpful for nascent writers and indeed those who have been chugging along at the craft for some time. Bird not only concerns herself with the mechanics of writing but more ephemeral matters such as how to tap into your imagination. Dear Writer Revisited by Carmel Bird Spineless Wonders, $24.99.


EANTIME for those are who are actually looking for a great summer read then Elizabeth Gilbert’s The Signature of All Things is positively delicious Gilbert’s best selling Eat, Pray, Love, was largely autobiographical, and some would say, self-indulgent. The Signature of All Things however is a different bird altogether. An historical fiction about a spinsterly woman who studies mosses. At first glance, you might think it uninspiring subject matter. But Gilbert weaves a sprawling story spanning a lifetime, through exotic locations and key social and scientific movements around the world. The book’s protagonist, Alma Whittaker, is the Philadelphia-born daughter of English plant-thief-made-good, Henry, and her dour but brilliant, mother. Born at the start of a new century, in

1800, she grows up surrounded by wealth, plants and a respect for knowledge. Unfettered by the usual social constraints, Alma is free in her father’s realm to study her beloved mosses – which take her into the mysteries of evolution. The slow progression of mosses echo Alma’s own emotional and sexual awakenings, and it is not until late in life that Alma meets Ambrose, a Utopian artist, and there starts another journey of discovery. Meticulously researched, this tale combines an exciting story of travel, mysticism, death and love alongside the predominant questions of Alma’s times.

BCH services workplace health promotion worker Nicole Monti, was one of the first staff to sign up to the program and hoped to motivate other staff members to join the team. “Staff health and wellbeing is a huge part of our organisation,”she said. After BCH partnered with St John of God, Ms Monti said she especially wanted to take

the opportunity to encourage staff to improve their levels of wellbeing. “It’s been great, walking to Rosalind Park and up the poppet head lookout tower during lunch, encouraging not only our team but also other staff to get out of the office,” she said. “We have also been very conscious of what we are eating, and the peer support has been the key. “It certainly hasn’t just been about losing weight, but increasing awareness of the importance of exercise and healthy eating.”



Bendigo Weekly

URING winter, feet are hidden away snug in socks and boots, which means they are often neglected and have been missing special care. As summertime approaches lots of outdoor activities, open toe shoes and sandals, exposes your feet. It also results in the re-emergence of the male exposed ankle, the “mankle”. And let’s be honest….. neglected feet and toes are not a pretty sight. Here are some suggestions, from n8 health podiatrist Tracy Kemp, on how to learn to love your feet and keep them happy. The state of your feet is known to affect your whole body so it’s important to show your feet a bit of love and attention. First, soak your feet in lukewarm water to soften your nails. Use a nail brush to remove any dirt or dead skin. Then clip your nails straight across before filing. Don’t cut into the corners of your nails, and don’t clip them too short— that can cause ingrown nails Use a foot file on the hard skin, moving the file in one direction. Don’t press too hard but apply a reasonable amount of pressure. Then apply a moisturiser and allow it to soak in. Tip: make a homemade scrub by mixing sea salt and olive oil and add a few drops of essential oil for an extra touch. Peppermint will cool down hot, aching feet, while rosemary oil will help to warm cold feet and aid circulation. Summer shoes look fabulous but by the end of the day your feet can be aching. Show them some love by giving yourself a foot rub – all you need is a golf or tennis ball. Sit in a chair and rub

PAIR CARE: Feet need a fix.

the ball from your heel up to your toes, spending extra time massaging the tenser areas. When the weather is hot and humid, your feet swell just as your fingers do. If you have to wear strappy shoes, stick a band-aid on spots which are bound to blister, such as the tops of the big toe and the back of the heel. Bring swelling down by soaking your feet in lukewarm salty water. Then pat dry with a clean towel. On holiday dirty feet and stubbed toes are the least of your worries. Public pools, bathrooms and showers can be breeding grounds for fungus. Keep your thongs on, and your feet tinea free. Finally, don’t skimp on the sunblock. The skin on the tops of your feet is thin and prone to sun exposure while wearing sandals. After being undercover all winter, feet are especially prone to sunburn. Be sure to protect your feet with sunscreen. Skin cancer can affect any part of the body, including the feet.

OY is a Melbourne-based outfit featuring Felicity Cripps (Vocals, Guitar) Cecilia Dowling (Viola, Vocals) and Liam Linley (Vocals, Guitar). All three write, play and sing on their debut album Aquaslum, each bringing a unique element to Hoy. From backgrounds in

classical and pop-electro, 60s rock and French-pop they have drawn on elements of the music they love, offering a layered psych-pop sound filled with poetry, melancholy and harmony. The album was recorded in a gothic church in Central Victoria.

After recently supporting The Basics on the Leftover Ingredients Tour, Hoy will be returning to Castlemaine to launch Brigitte Bardot on November 30 at The Bridge Hotel Castlemaine. Support from Tim Richmond. Entry $10. Doors 8.30pm. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lou Risdale

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, November 22, 2013

Crawford the lobbyist M

Y next subject in introducing the American Fleet Welcome Committee members is George Hunter Crawford, who represented the Bendigo Mine Owners Association. This Association was of considerable importance not only in Bendigo early in the 20th century but also its views were sought by the Victorian colonial and later state governments. The Crawford family came from Gateshead, Newcastle on Tyne, England. George’s father Charles was a building contractor who decided to bring his young family to Victoria. George Crawford was born in 1847, arriving in Bendigo as a nineyear-old. After his schooling, young George entered his father’s contracting business. By 1869 he struck out on his own, going to Melbourne and worked there for two years. During the mining boom of 1871 he returned to Bendigo and took advantage of the building boom that was happening as a result of the intense speculative mining investment and activity. George took over his father’s contracting business and not only tendered for building projects in Bendigo but also in many towns to the north. George was a member of the Volunteer Rifle Corps since 1863, he was also a crack shot and became a swordsman of note having won the title as Broad Sword Champion of Victoria. For almost two decades George competed in the local St

Andrew’s Sports as a swordsman. Among his other interest was a veritable plethora of local mines. George was a shareholder in many Bendigo gold mining companies, he served as a director on the boards of Frederick the Great, Bruhn’s Freehold, No 20 Freehold, Shenandoah, North Shenandoah, Summerhill, Fortuna Hustler’s and New Chum Mining Company at Diamond Hill among a number of others. Apart from George’s mining interests he was also a property owner, the most notable being his own residence Del Oro in Palmerston Square, opposite the South Bendigo Bowling Club. Del Oro is a Quarry Hill landmark. In 1882, George, as a man of means was approached by a number of citizens to stand for the local council. At the time he was described as a young man who had a family of six children. George’s backers described him as “a straightforward man”. Another string in the Crawford bow was the fact that he was also a mine legal manager. The Mine Owners’ Association was formed in 1887, following on from an advertisement placed in the newspapers by J G Weddell. It was important to form such an association in order to lobby the government, Ballarat had stolen the march on Bendigo as they already had one established. SH McGowan became president, George vice president and the secretary was G A Petrie. Soon, George became the local president, an office he held for many years. George described the Mine


Owners Association as: Assuming no credit for controlling anything… it is the directors of the companies who are responsible. We are composed of delegates of respective boards… We meet together to consider specific legislation affecting the mining industry and its effects on companies. We try to assist to get beneficial legislation... Whenever legislation is proposed we get a copy as soon as we can and express our opinions upon it and endeavour to secure the best possible results for the industry.

I can tell you that deliberations have very largely influenced Parliament in the past. The only problem is when Parliament goes against our wishes. Essentially it can be seen that the Mine Owners’ Association was a lobbying group, but George’s role did not end there, he was spruiking the group’s opposition to the introduction of mine managers’ certificates. He was appointed by parliament to be a Royal Commissioner on Gold Mining in 1889, which was considered to be a great honour for Bendigo.

heritage matters A tale of two early schools I T is time to open the history books on some of Bendigo’s oldest schools. There are great examples of important heritage school buildings, including Camp Hill, Mundy Street, Eaglehawk and Lockwood, which are listed on the Victorian Heritage Register and are considered of state significance. Two less prominent but important old schools owned by Greater Bendigo council are undergoing work to ensure they survive for future use. The work to both buildings falls under the “boring but important” category. Termite damage is evident in both buildings, but fortunately limited to the sub floor space. Work at the California Gully Mechanics Institute is almost complete. The building has a special history and was originally a National School. National Schools were built up to the end of 1862 and were part of the early dual education system of Denominational and National Schools in Victoria. There are a small number of National Schools remaining in the state. New rooms were added to both sides of the building during the 1880s and a front verandah designed by renowned Bendigo architect W C Vahland was constructed in 1891. Today the building is used by the Rotary Club of Eaglehawk. Re-stumping is also under way at the old Longlea school. The 1870s timber building and matching shelter shed are remarkably intact, with its blackboards, cupboards, fireplace and chimney, and coat hooks. There is a rumour a time capsule exists on the site but excavation for the stumps has not uncovered it. The work to both buildings form part of the council’s ongoing management of heritage assets and confirms the city’s commitment to preserving these buildings for future generations to use and enjoy. – Megan McDougall

SUGAR Smooth, Bendigo’s first Body Sugaring Clinic for women and men, recently opened at Strath Village. Body Sugaring is the latest alternative to waxing and is an ancient Egyptian method of hair removal using natural sugar. Carmel Murray is a Sugaring therapist, trained and certified by Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring. “Most people are having something waxed,” Carmel said. “So when I discovered a more natural and effective method I decided to specialise.” A soft velvety paste is massaged onto the skin, allowing the sugar to coat all of the hair while it also seeps down inside the follicles. Carmel says lubricating the hair this way usually results in less discomfort than traditional waxing . Products used at Sugar Smooth contain

no chemicals, resins or preservatives. Diabetics, those with eczema, spider or varicose veins and those prone to ingrown hairs after waxing, will benefit from sugaring. Sugar is naturally antibacterial and contains healing properties. Bacteria cannot breed or thrive in high concentrations of sugar. Sugar paste is applied at room temperature so there is never a risk of burning the skin. Body Sugaring removes hair in it’s natural direction of growth resulting in less hair breakage, quicker refinement, reduced skin irritation and less ingrown hairs. Sugar Smooth also sells a range of skin conditioning products to enhance your Body Sugaring experience, with gift certificates available.

Dragons want more By JOEL PETERSON

From Page 40 The 2013 GV Best Conducted Club award winner, the Dragons, are gearing up for what will be a big challenge, according to coach Rob Hunter. “Our first goal this year was to score a touchdown, then to win a game, and then we had almost an unrealistic goal of making the playoffs, and we did all those,” Hunter, the 2013 division two coach of the year, said. “We’re essentially 12 months ahead of our plan. Originally we were going to look at it after two or three years, but the league and the club wanted to make the move when we were presented with the opportunity. “Last year the guys had a challenge in front of them, they took it on, and now they want more. That’s a really pleasing thing as a coach, and I’m sure that hunger will be greater now.” The Dragons start pre-season training on January 19, but his players are using the experiences of their first season to identify areas to improve, even before they start training. “A lot of guys had certain areas of their game or even their strength or fitness that

they needed to improve, and Danny at Doherty’s has been really helpful in setting those guys up with programs,” he said. “I know what I need the guys to be able to do and look like, but I’m not a gym junkie, so to have these guys to help them with guidance is fantastic. “Now that they’ve had a season playing the game they know how to improve and they aren’t picking it up from scratch, so the biggest way we can grow is through the guys who were around this year.” Hunter said he wants to make the division one competition stand up and take notice, and is confident in his team’s ability to be competitive. “We’re looking forward to going out and mixing it with the best, and we will. We’ll be a much more competitive outfit going forward,” he said. “This time around people won’t be shocked when we start putting bodies up against them and playing them hard, because these boys from Bendigo are not going to back down.” Just like the start of this season, Hunter is setting small goals. “My first goal in division one will be to score a touchdown, the second goal will be to win a game, and the third goal, down the track, is to win a title,” he said.

Martin in challenge PROFESSIONAL golfer Andrew Martin will return to his home town to play in the Bendigo Golf Club’s 2013 Christmas Challenge next month. The former Neangar Park player was the Australian Amateur champion in 2004 when he downed Jarrod Lyle at Royal Adelaide. Martin’s appearance back in his home town is a major boost for the Christmas Challenge. The challenge has attracted a capacity field of 260 players and will be played on a testing Bendigo course on Saturday, December 14. Bendigo Golf Club general manager Steven Oliver said the 11th Christmas Challenge will be the biggest ever conducted by the club in terms of players and prizes. ‘’This year we are offering more prizes for Super Pins, plus special prizes on some of the par four and par five holes on the course. We have secured excellent sponsorship and with a record field this event will definitely be our major fundraiser of the year,” he said. “It’s fantastic that Andrew Martin will be joining us for this big day along with top district golfers Liam Carney, Chris Wilkinson, Ian Frost and Liam Anderson.’’

Emu Valley Cricket Association – Division 1

TOP TECHNIQUE: Scott Cadzow.

Emus take hold

EMU Creek strengthened its grip on top spot while a Nathan Hamblin century led Golden Gully into the top four after round for of the Emu Valley Cricket Association season. At Ken Wust Oval, the Emus continued their undefeated streakway as they defeated West Bendigo by 17 runs, the Redbacks only putting together 152 in reply to Emu Creek’s total of 169. Best with the bat for West was coach Matt Dwyer (48) as Anthony Collins (5/70) ripped through the top order before Emu Creek reached 8/209 in their second innings after going back in to bat. At Champions IGA Oval, recruit Hamblin showed why the Cobras courted him in the off-season, crafting 102 to slide Golden Gully into the top four. Hamblin’s century, along with a half century to Nathan Shatwell (64), helped guide Golden Gully to 9/305, easily surpassing Axe Creek’s total of 9/184. The reliable Travis Nolan (3/59) was best with the ball for the Cowboys, who face bottom side Maiden Gully in round five. Gully had a tough time of it against a strong United lineup, the Andrew duo of Gaul (47) and Collins (43) ensuring the home side passed the target of 155 to continue Maiden Gully’s miserable start to the season. United declared straight after passing the total in hopes of claiming an outright victory, but Mark Gorrie was the mainstay of Gully’s second innings of 126 – that ended

with four overs left in the day’s play. Gaul was the star of the show with the ball for the Tigers, recording incredible figures of 7/12 off 14 overs. At One Tree Hill Hotel Oval, Spring Gully fell well short of the 260-run target set by Mandurang, bowled out for 147. Damien Venville (44) was best for the Crows as only openers Jayden Mannix (32) and Damien Dunlop (23) were the only other batsmen to pass 20. Warrick Behrens, day one century-maker Phil Berry and Ben Rodda all took two wickets for Mandurang. In their first home game for the season, Sedgwick could only manage 165 in reply to Marong’s 296.


Adam Sonnett made 30 led the way for the Rams as Zac Samuel and Nick Ede claimed three scalps apiece for the Panthers. The EVCA’s Bash for Cash series also kicked off on Tuesday evening, with great conditions for all games. At Pearce Reserve, United took down Golden Gully before home side Mandurang, led by an astounding 120 off 35 balls from Matt Giri, blasted their way to victory over a gallant Emu Creek. Half centuries from Scott Ross and Rob Murphy saw Marong post 175 to down home side Axe Creek, while Maiden Gully were too good for Kangaroo Flat, Sedgwick got the better of Strathfieldsaye and West Bendigo were too good for Spring Gully. – Joel Peterson

Tennis funding stalls


THE Federal Government is “unlikely” to fund the $5.2 million redevelopment of the Bendigo Tennis Centre. In the past few weeks there has been speculation the government might not fund costed and budgeted Regional Development Australia Fund programs announced by the previous Labor Government in the lead up to the election. Then-Federal Minister for Regional Australia Catherine King announced the Bendigo tennis funding in late August, saying it would be delivered no matter who won the election. The money was part of a $7 million plan to build spectator seating for 900, build a community hub building and upgrade four courts to Grand Slam standard. However, Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said the RDAF projects were “uncontracted and unfunded”. “Labor recklessly announced projects all over the country in the lead-up to – and during – the federal election, in the full knowledge that they would never deliver them,” Truss told the Herald Sun.

The paper listed the Bendigo tennis development as “unlikely” to go ahead. Truss said “unsigned” contracts for projects were funded from the mining tax, which the government is about to scrap. The Weekly under-

It is a vital project, there’s no doubt about that stands a tennis contract was yet to be signed. However, Bendigo Tennis Association executive officer Leon Retallick was confident. “For us it’s business as usual at the moment, we’re still working through the processes associated in getting the project up and running and have had really positive feedback from (Nationals Senator) Bridget McKenzie,” he said. “We are still very optimistic. The discussions we’ve had and feedback from with Tennis Australia, who are also advocating on behalf of us, have

been good as well. “We’re not too worried at this stage, we’ll continue to work hard towards getting it up and running.” With Bendigo’s tennis community thriving coming off the extremely successful Bendigo Festival of Tennis, Retallick emphasised the importance of the project. “It is a vital project, there’s no doubt about that. The level of investment into this facility from all levels of government is extremely low,” he said. “There has been nothing on a federal level, and mostly in support of individual tournaments and events on a state level. “This is a facility that will serve the Bendigo community for at least the next 50 years. “We are determined to make sure it happens, even if it does take a bit longer to work through.” Labor Member for Bendigo Lisa Chesters said the project was vital. “Unfortunately, the Minister was not available for a meeting. However, his office took on board my concerns and committed to confirm before the end of the year which, if any, of these projects will be funded,” she said.

HARD AT WORK: The Dragons are fit for division one.

Dragons make top division AFTER a stellar inaugural season, the Bendigo Dragons Gridiron Club has made history, stepping up to Gridiron Victoria’s division one competition in 2014.

The Dragons became the first club to make the transition from division two to the top-flight after it was approved at a GV committee meeting on Monday. Continued Page 38
