Substation conversion plan OTHER uses for the Seaford substation will be canvassed by Frankston Council to make use of the building constructed in the 1920s. Councillors at this month’s public council meeting voted to investigate possibly converting the abandoned building into an “art museum” or “community hub”. Cr Kris Bolam said Seaford residents at a recent ward meeting with ratepayers had mentioned making use of the substation. The Seaford substation is located on VicTrack land and effectively falls under state government control but council CEO Dennis Hovenden believes council can be involved in discussions about its future use. “I think there is a level of willingness from VicTrack and PTV [Public Transport Victoria]

to work with council,” Mr Hovenden said at the meeting. Cr Glenn Aitken said the building “needs some work at significant cost” but agreed with Seaford residents that the historic building “could serve a greater purpose”. He noted some concrete had fallen from the main building but he understood, from discussions with government authorities, that “the building is as solid as a rock”. Council officers will check whether the building is showing signs of “concrete cancer”, investigate if asbestos was used in its construction and will look the “structural integrity” of the building and report back to council in November about possible uses for the substation.

Salute to US jazz: Anite Harrism and, from left, Leon Heale, Alan Richards, Kim Harris and Graeme Steel, are coming to Frankston to perform works by US composers George and Ira Gershwin. Picture: Supplied

Always Summertime for Anita Harris THE works of US composers George and Ira Gershwin will get a working over from jazz singer Anita Harris and her band when she takes to the stage at Frankston Bowling Club on September 24. Harris, a popular performer at jazz festivals around Victoria and beyond, has called her program Gershwing, which gives an indication of the direction she will take. Since her first gig in 1993, Harris has delighted audiences at restaurants, wineries, jazz clubs - and festivals. Critics have called her “one of those very rare vocal stylists” and enthused that “she has a strong fluid contralto which she employs to produce a delightfully creamy sound and she

swings ably and effortlessly”. In 2013, marking her 20th anniversary on the Australian jazz scene, she released her fourth CD, Here’s Looking at You. Earlier releases were My Heart Belongs to Jazz, The Wee Small Hours and Moments in Time. Harris will work with her regular band – her father Kim Harris (piano), Graeme Steel (trumpet), Leon Heale (bass) and Alan Richards (drums). Anita Harris and Friends present Gershwing, David May’s Jazz at the Bowl, Frankston Bowling Club, corner of Yuille and William Sts, Sunday, September 24 from 6-9pm. Meals available.
