RAISING THE BAR Camberwell’s bar scene is thriving despite falling within Melbourne’s last remaining dry zone.

Camberwell’s bar scene has made a splash with locals and visitors in recent years, despite falling within Melbourne’s last remaining dry zone. The alcohol-free zone — where residents can vote directly on liquor licence applications — has restricted bars and pubs from opening throughout parts of Ashburton, Glen Iris, Camberwell, Canterbury, Box Hill, Balwyn, Mont Albert and Surrey Hills since 1920. The alcohol-free zone has been especially divisive in Camberwell, where the eastern side of the Burke Rd shopping precinct has stayed dry while licensed bars and restaurants have proliferated on the western side. The number of alcohol licenses granted to venues in Camberwell has grown by a third over the past three years. The latest figures show there were 108 liquor licences active in Camberwell in September 2019, up from 81 in January 2015, according to the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR). Venues including Palace Hotel, Bar None and Nineteenforty have served the community for years, however new bars such as Young’s Wine Rooms and East End have moved into the area more recently. Young’s Wine Rooms bar manager Tommy Linstead said Camberwell’s bar scene was improving and becoming more active. He said people used to have to travel into the city to enjoy Melbourne’s vibrant bars and nightlife. “What we’re trying to show, with our new neighbours and other new businesses in the area, is that you don’t have to go into the city to get this level of service and quality. It’s available closer to home now,” Mr Linstead said. Young’s Wine Rooms opened its doors at the former Young’s Auction House this year, along with its neighbour, East End Bar. Many restaurants have been granted alcohol licenses as well, with the likes of Fiorelli, Cafe Paradiso and La Cabra offering

bar settings and outdoor spaces to enjoy a drink. The dry zone was created in 1920 during the anti-alcohol movement, according to Geoffrey Blainey’s A History of Camberwell. The laws required residents to attend a polling place to vote on liquor licences for restaurants and venues or face a fine. In 2015, the laws were eased so that residents were no longer needed to vote on restaurant liquor licence applications, although public polls were still necessary for pub and club licence applications. The local nightlife may develop further, following promises from the state Labor government to abolish the alcohol-free zone and bring local rules in line with the rest of Victoria.

“These archaic laws are a waste of money and an unnecessary burden on locals – and we’ll get rid of them,” Premier Daniel Andrews said in the lead up to the 2018 Victorian election. He said the compulsory polls across the entire dry zone had cost taxpayers almost $500,000 since 2004, while residents who failed to vote faced $79 fines. Mr Andrews said local residents would still have input into planning and permit approvals through local councils and the VCGLR. However, Boroondara Council opposed the election commitment when it was announced. “We don’t welcome it. The zone has served a purpose and continues to serve a purpose, and it’s disappointing that the government hasn’t sought to discuss those purposes with us,” Councillor Jim Parke, the then Boroondara mayor, told ABC Radio in November 2018. When The Camberwell Citizen contacted Boroondara Council for comment, a spokesperson said their position on the issue was unchanged. After winning the state election in November 2018, the Labor government is expected to abolish the dry zone rules for Camberwell and the other suburbs affected. Mr Linstead, of Young’s Wine Rooms, said getting rid of the dry zone was a positive move for the area. “[The dry zone] seems very dated to me and I’m sure it will be good for the area when it’s lifted,” he said.

M A R K E T FA C E S Having served the community for more than 85 years, the Camberwell Fresh Food Market has become a local institution. Meet some of the traders who help make the market what it is today.

VICKI MEDINI OF THE FLOWER CHARM The gorgeous selection of blooms on display at The Flower Charm puts smiles on countless faces every day, according to manager Vicki Medini. “I love flowers and the look on people’s faces when they come by,” she said. “Whatever is happening in someone’s life, when they pass by and have a look, you can see it makes a difference to them.” The Flower Charm is known for its wide variety of seasonal flowers for every event, whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or other occasion. Ms Medini said they sourced their flowers directly from growers instead of going through a wholesaler, with many customers preferring locally sourced flowers. “Instead of flowers travelling from the grower to the wholesaler to the market and then to us, we just go direct to the farm,” she said. Find The Flower Charm at Shop 7 in the Camberwell Fresh Food Market.

MARIA ARHONDIS OF NICK & SUE’S GOURMET DELI With a love for cooking and community, Maria Arhondis and her husband Harry have relished their first year as the owners of Nick & Sue’s Gourmet Deli. The couple took over the well-established deli in mid-2018, continuing its tradition of serving fine delicacies and quality homemade dishes to the community. “Nick & Sue’s Gourmet Deli has been here for more than 35 years, so it’s very well known in the community,” Ms Arhondis said. The Arhondis family have worked hard to boost their range of homecooked meals, catering for busy families in need of ready-to-go dishes. For Ms Arhondis, getting to know new and long-term customers, as well as the neighbouring traders, has been a real highlight during her time in the market. “We’ve got a big family and we’ve always been surrounded by food and parties and entertaining, so this is something we’ve always wanted to do.” Find Nick & Sue’s Gourmet Deli at Shop 17-19 in the Camberwell Fresh Food Market.

Bugsy’s owner Joanne Cooper is on a mission to improve the health and wellness of our four-legged friends. The business makes freeze-dried pet treats and products for cats and dogs that are free of antibiotics, preservatives, hormones, chemicals and added artificial flavours. The former litigator, who is known as Aunty Jo, started the business four years ago to bring a holistic approach to pet health. “Every product I create or procure has one underlining theme: longevity,” she said. “I believe that ‘we are what we eat’ does not only apply to humans but extends to our pets as well.” The store owner said the fresh food movement was gaining momentum, as ‘pet parents’ became more selective of what they fed their animals. Ms Cooper said she most enjoyed finding the right treat for fussy eaters and helping pets eat healthier. Find Bugsy’s at Shop 22 in Camberwell Fresh Food Market.

M AT T E R S O F T H E M I N D Author Jill Stark shares why she wrote the book she needed during her own tough times.

In her latest book When You’re Not OK, Melbourne author and journalist Jill Stark set out to write the book that she needed during her own tough times. “I wanted to build on the lessons that I’ve learned from my own experiences for what helps and what doesn’t when you’re doing it really tough,” Ms Stark told The Camberwell Citizen. “It’s a practical book that you can turn to when life is not treating you so well.” When You’re Not OK is Ms Stark’s third book, following Happy Never After and her bestselling memoir, High Sobriety. The new book is a self-care manual and an “emotional first-aid kit” filled with tips and wisdom to help people when they are struggling with mental health issues. The idea for the book came from a list of helpful tips in the back of Happy Never After. The author received a lot of positive feedback about the list, with people photocopying the pages and sticking them to their walls. She even found herself going back to those tips. Ms Stark decided to take those pages and expand them into a pocket-size guide, however she stressed the guide wasn’t a replacement for therapy or a substitute for treatment. “When you’re in that space, you forget how to be well and what you need to do to take care of yourself, so this is a way of distilling all the information… you can dip in and out of when you’re doing it tough,” she said. The author has typically challenged the status quo with her writing, having drawn on her personal experience to tackle wider social issues. Her first book, High Sobriety, followed her tumultuous year of giving up alcohol and explored binge drinking culture across Australia and Scotland, where she grew up. In Happy Never After, the author flips the happiness fairy tale on its head and shares her personal breakdown and life-long battles with mental health issues in a raw and uplifting account. With a career in the media, Ms Stark has covered health and social affairs as a senior writer and columnist at The Age newspaper. “I’ve been a journalist for more than 20 years and it’s interesting now because I’m moving into the mental health advocate space more than I have done previously,” she said.

CITIZEN

“I’m still using my writing but bringing my lived experience to help and support other people who are going through similar issues is incredibly rewarding.” Ms Stark has been working with mental health organisation Beyond Blue on a campaign called Am I Normal? The campaign is a series of articles, where the writer challenges the notions of normal with professional advice from specialists. She also held a workshop called Worrier to Warrior earlier this year to help people struggling with anxiety. “When I do public speaking events or book signings, it’s the conversations that I have… afterwards that stay with me for a long time and give me a sense of purpose,” she said. Having published two books in about 12 months, Ms Stark has taken some time off before jumping into her next literary project. The author is keen on the idea of writing fiction next, given her published books are based on personal experience to date. “I’m not sure there is much appetite for me talking about my feelings much more,” she joked. “I would love to create some new characters, however most people’s first novel is usually a thinly-veiled autobiographical account of their own life. I’ve definitely got a fiction book in mind, I’m just not quite ready to turn my head to it yet.” Ms Stark said writing her books has helped her appreciate that everyone is flawed, and everyone is trying to do their best in life. “We all struggle. Every single person has an invisible battle that you can’t see and it’s really important to remember that,” she said.

A dark bargain is made to return Clementine to a respectable life in northern England, as the diamond disappears. Years on, Clementine looks to solve the mystery of what happened to her loved ones, confronting a painful past to uncover the truth.
