 SPRING IS HERE!  FREE WATER SAFETY DVD As we approach the warmer months Federal Member for Lindsay, David Bradbury, has joined with Laurie Lawrence in promoting the important Kids Alive Do the Five water safety message. Mr Bradbury has organised with Laurie Lawrence for local families to be provided with a free Living with Water DVD. “Summer isn’t too far away, so now is the perfect time to teach our chil-

dren the important Kids Alive do the Five water safety message to reduce the risk of preschool downing.” Drowning is the biggest cause of accidental death in children under five in Australia. On average one child in Australia drowns each week. Laurie Lawrence said showing your children the water safety DVD is just one small way everyone can do their bit to reduce drowning in Australia. “Owning a swimming pool is a big responsibility. Pool owners must ensure that their pool is fenced and complies with local government legislation” said Mr Lawrence.

“Every local parent should grab a copy of the DVD from David Bradbury’s office and make sure their children are doing the five.” Laurie Lawrence’s Kids Alive Do the Five are: 1.Fence the pool 2.Shut the gate 3.Teach your kids to swim – it’s great 4.Supervise – watch your mate, and 5.Learn how to resuscitate Copies of the DVD can be obtained by calling David Bradbury’s Office on (02) 4732 1801 or emailing david.

It’s kind of sad that quite often there are some men out there who think that this “Jesus stuff” is not for them.

Community benefits from hall upgrade Mothers’ groups; volunteers; community groups and vital community services as well as party and event hosts in Regentville and surrounding suburbs now have a more contemporary community hall to use. Penrith City Council has revamped Regentville Hall with the hall committee with grants from the NSW State Government’s Community Builders program and NSW Aged and Disability Services. The revamp includes a new commercial kitchen, repainting of the hall and resealing of the timber floor, new hot water units, solar electricity, rainwater tanks, new energy efficient lighting and upgrading of toilets and electrical switchboard. Penrith City Deputy Mayor Jim Aitken OAM said Council particularly wanted to thank the Nepean Food Service for pursuing State Government funding for the hall and for the food service. “The Nepean Food Service was successful in obtaining grant funding for the hall upgrades and their food service,” Councillor Aitken said. “The Nepean Food Service plays a vital role in our community by providing meals, a friendly face and an

occasional day out for some of the most vulnerable members of our community. “Council appreciates the role the service plays each week in enabling 200 or so Penrith City residents to stay in their own homes and maintain a level of independence and dignity. “Their good work in obtaining this funding means that they can continue to provide the service from within a modern facility while also ensuring that the wider community also benefits from having a contemporary hall to use.” Penrith City Council provides more than 30 community halls and centres across the City, which are available for a small hire cost for your next function, meeting or celebration. For more information or to book events call 4732 8021 or visit www.

improve the amenity of open space and reduce the need for Council to mow grass along fence lines while protecting the fences from graffiti attacks. Hedging or greenscreening, a proven crime prevention measure through environmental design, has been successful across Penrith City. Suburbs where hedges have recently been installed include Glenmore Park and North Cranebrook. Penrith City Deputy Mayor Jim Aitken OAM said: “We’re killing two birds with one stone – we’re cutting costs we’d otherwise be spending on mowing grass and removing graffiti. Plus, the hedges are attractive, softening the hard lines of fences and walls, as their new growth is a striking red colour.”

Hedging cuts costs and deters graffitists

where the gift of giving is delicious

Six kilometres of hedging has been installed by Penrith City Council along selected fence lines in the City to help prevent graffiti and make mowing easier. Completed over a two week period last month, the photinia hedges will

Kev’s Korner A little girl, dressed in her Sunday best, was running as fast as she could, trying not to be late for Bible class. As she ran she prayed, “Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late! Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late!” While she was running and praying, she tripped on a curb and fell, getting her clothes dirty and tearing her dress. She got up, brushed herself off, and started running again! As she ran she once again began to pray, “Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late...But please don’t shove me either!” The Bible is a confusing book for many people. Let me try and make it easier for you. The word Bible is not really adequate to describe it. It really should be called The Holy Bible because Bible comes from the Greek word biblia meaning “books” and it contains all the holy books that tell us about God. It is divided into two parts: the Old Testament and the New Tes-

tament. The word Testament means “agreement” so the two testaments are the two distinct agreements that God has made with humanity. One prior to Jesus (Old Testament) and the other from Jesus until eternity (the New Testament). The word Testament can also be interchanged with the word Covenant. The Holy Bible records the numerous covenants, or agreements that God has made with humanity throughout history. In the Old Testament, there covenants were usually signed with the blood of some sacrificed animal, usually a sheep or ox. But in the New Testament it is Jesus who offers His own Blood on the Cross. The final agreement or covenant God has made which is unchangeable is recorded in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. They record the words that Jesus used at the Last Supper when He said, after offering the apostles the chalice “the cup contains the new testament in my blood.” (Luke 20:22). The blood seals the covenant—and the cup is the symbol of that seal. It is ‘the everlasting covenant’ (Hebrews 13:20). Each week at

Mass we fulfill our part of the covenant or agreement by doing as Jesus commanded us “Do this in memory of Me”. Our sharing in the Eucharist is our way of expressing our desire to be included in the Covenant with God. The way we participate in the Eucharist is also expressing our desire to have Eternal Life. As Jesus said, “Whoever eats my Body and drinks my Blood will live forever and I will raise them up on the last day” (John 6:54). The whole of the Old Testament is pointing towards this point. The offering of blood sacrifices were all to be replaced by the final sacrifice which Jesus offered on Mt Calvary. We are not able to be there on Good Friday but we are able, at Mass each week, to be there with Jesus in His great act of offering Himself to God the Father. You can participate in fulfilling your part of the covenant by joining the Catholic Community at one of our Masses: 6.30pm Saturday, 7.30am or 9am Sunday.

Coochie Takes The Hard Work Out Of Lawns Coochie HydroGreen Lawn Care Services offers a lawn care program that aims to keep lawns green and healthy all year round. We treat all types of lawns but we do not mow lawns. A lawn needs attention on a regular basis to keep it strong, healthy and green. It requires regular nutrition, disease, weed and lawn pest control at different stages throughout the seasonal year. With our regular scheduled visits, six times a year, we take the hassle out of looking after your lawn. You no longer need to purchase, store and spend time applying complicated products - just leave it to Coochie. By applying the correct balance of nutrients through liquid fertilising, organic soil conditioning, wetting agents, and safe lawn pest and weed control, Coochie can ensure your lawn is kept green and healthy. Or, you may prefer just a ‘one-off’ visit, which consists of a fertiliser and weed treatment only. Ongoing follow-ups and technical advice is part of our service. Water saving benefits through the use of soil wetting agents ensures that lawns do not require as much water to stay healthy. The Coochie service is also ideal for businesses, including real estates, landscapers,

erty developers, motels, councils and childcare centres, to name a few. If you are interested in knowing more about our services and how we may be able to help you care for your lawn, please feel free to contact your local Coochie Owner Manager – Fabian Gemin on 0401701322 for a free 10-point lawn inspection and advice, or Freecall 1800 245 955.

Foster Care Week 2011 Barnardos Temporary Family Care Program provides short term care to children in the Penrith, Hawkesbury and Blue Mountain LGAs. Temporary Family Care is a program that helps and supports families and kinship carers through respite and short-term foster care. Care for children is provided by trained carers in their homes. Respite care is planned care which provides children and their families with a break and support once weekend a month. Respite care is usually provided to families for 6 – 12 months with the children going to the same carer family each month. Crisis care means that children stay with a foster carer for a period of time which depending on circumstances can be for a week or two, a month or two or up to one year. At the end of a Crisis Care placement, the child may return to their birth family, extended family, or be placed in long term care . Joanne and Rob with their three children Josh, Liam and Mikayla are one family who provide foster care for children in the Barnardos Temporary Family Care Program in Penrith area. Jo is a school teacher and Rob is a shift worker. Jo and Rob have been foster carers since 2009 and in that time have cared for 4 children at different times. Jo and Rob initially did respite care and

now provide care for children in crisis care. They have a spare bedroom in their home that is used by the foster children while they stay with them. Jo and Robert became foster carers as they were motivated to help others especially children and felt they had the time and space in their lives for other children. Currently Jo and Robert have a young boy James* aged 9 in crisis care with their family. Prior to coming into foster care James had very poor health and had multiple emergency hospital admissions. His poor health and regular hospital admissions also meant that his schooling and other parts of his life suffered. Since coming into care with the Barnardos Temporary Family Care and staying with Jo and Rob, James’s health has improved significantly and he has not had one admission to hospital (although he attends the hospital as an outpatient as required). Also with the support of Jo and Rob, James has made significant gains in his learning and education as he can now attend school regularly and get additional help from a tutor. He is also enjoying playing sports and likes to go out weekends with his foster family. Jo and Rob will continue to have James stay with them until a permanent family can be found for him. Jo has said that she enjoys doing foster care for the Barnardos Temporary Family Care Program. “Being a foster carer is challenging sometimes but as a foster carer I feel very supported by the Barnardos caseworkers.”

In regards to doing the care and what she finds the most satisfying about doing foster care Jo stated “I get a long out of seeing the children in my care grow and meet their potential but also as a mother it has been great seeing my own children have the opportunity to show the caring side of themselves. What we get out of doing foster care as a family far exceeds what I ever thought we would. It’s great.” Foster Care Week is an annual event which has been running in NSW since 1990. Coordinated by ACWA with the support of non-government foster care agencies and other partners, Foster Care Week aims to celebrate and acknowledge the work of NSW's foster carers. (reference - http:// Week11.html) Foster care week is 11 – 17 September 2011 and each year to celebrate Barnardos Temporary Family Care program holds an annual celebratory dinner for all its carer families and children in care. It is a great event where carers enjoy a chance to socialise and catch up with each other. If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a foster carer with the Barnardos Temporary Family Care Program, Penrith please phone the TFC Team on 4729 1211 during business hours.

Orchard Hills Vet RSPCA CupCake Day a Huge Success! Orchard Hills Vet hosted the RSPCA Cupcake Day on Monday 15th August 2011. Thank you to everyone who came in and donated and ate a cupcake or two. Also a huge thank you for the online donations. We raised $950.00 for the RSPCA with your help. Belinda, Carly and Eden cooked up a storm and provided the most delicious peppermint slice, cupcakes, cookies, banana cake. The Pupcakes were made from the Hills wd science diet baked into cupcakes and iced with peanut butter. Pony and Bella loved eating the Pupcakes! The RSPCA also provided merchandise to be sold on the Cupcake Day. The tea towels, aprons, cat danglers, lip balms and soft dog toys were all cute and were sold out quickly. Thanks again for supporting a great cause!


The RSPCA is the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a non-profit, community based

charity that works to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection. The RSPCA is not an agency of the Australian Government and therefore relies on the generosity of the community – through animal adoptions, volunteering, event participation, donations, fundraising, corporate partnerships, corporate support, bequests and grants – to support its vital daily work.

Red Dog the Movie

On Saturday 8th August, we were honoured to be invited to attend a special Meet and Greet with the star of the new “Red Dog” Movie, Koko the Kelpie at David Darcy’s Photo Gallery in Katoomba! After the honour and thrill of meeting the wonderful Koko we were invited up to Mt Vic Flicks in Mount Victoria to see a premiere viewing of the film. It was a wonderful heartwarming true story of charismatic kelpie who roamed the Western Australian Outback in the 1970’s, hitching rides, adopting people and uniting communities along the way. We rec-

ommend anyone to see it! The movie makes you want to go home and hug your own dog! Please feel free to pop in anytime and meet the team at Orchard Hills Veterinary Hospital. Call 4736 2027 to make an appointment.
