Library and Museum project underway With the ceremonial sod turned, the area around the old Gerringong School of Arts (opposite Cronin’s Liquor) is now a construction site for the long awaited Gerringong Library & Museum (GLaM) project. “This fantastic project is a great collaboration between Council and the Gerringong Historical Society, made possible with support from the State and Federal governments,” said Mayor Mark Honey. It was the first time the new Member for Gilmore, Fiona Phillips, had participated in a sod turning, and she said she was delighted with what it was. “I mentioned in my maiden speech how important libraries are in our democracy. “Preserving local stories is so important for people in our communities, so to have the Library and the Museum together is a great thing.” Director of the lead contractor Momentum Built, Paul Boyd, is looking for-

ward to the work starting. “We love the challenges of jobs like this, where we are incorporating the old with the new. It’s exciting and will look really good once it is finished. “It is also very satisfying to build something that will mean so much to people.” Construction of the GLaM is due to be completed in the first half of next year. The complex is expected to be open by this time next year, after the Library and Museum have had time to settle into their new premises. The $3.2m project involves building a new Library behind the historic School of Arts on Blackwood Street, which will be restored and converted to house the Museum. The Library and Museum buildings will share a foyer and gallery space, as well as meeting rooms, kitchen and Mayor Mark Honey and Fiona Phillips MP marking the beginning of the construction project amenities. The School of Arts will be restored with roof sheeting and galvanised wall cladding Continued on p4

Minnamurra Boardwalk: latest designs on show Kiama Council has released the latest design for the proposed Minnamurra Boardwalk and Cycleway. The detailed design of the final route for the boardwalk is now 65 per cent complete, providing the community with another opportunity to make comment on the design aspect. Feedback provided at community information sessions earlier this year has helped guide decisions on the

material, furnishing types, signage and construction types for the project. Will Chyra of Friends of the Minnamurra River says they continue to call on Council to abandon the project. “In the last 600 metres at the southern end of the Boardwalk, 47 piles will be driven into the riverbed to take the path out over the river. “We find it hypocritical that Council is opposed to sandmining near one side of

the river, because of its possible environmental effects, yet they are saying that constructing a Boardwalk in the river will have no impact. “At 35 per cent design the cost had ballooned to $9.5m. We wonder what it is now. “Why continue with something we can’t afford?”

Making getting a grant a bit easier The Federal Member for Gilmore, Fiona Phillips MP, wants community groups to know that her office is ready with a new service offering expert advice on grant applications. “We have a staff member who is solely concentrating on grants,” she says. “We have a lot of experience we can bring to bear to give advice on how to address the criteria and to phrase things to have a better chance of being successful. “Sometime just the terminology used will make a difference, as will structuring things to suit particular programs.” Those interested can sign up on her website for a grants-specific bulletin, as well as benefiting from grant information stored there. Two Federal Government community grant programs – the Stronger Communities Program and the Communities Environment Program – are currently open for expressions of interest, offering

$150,000 per electorate for grants between $2,500 and $20,000. The Stronger Communities Program allows for small capital projects and equipment that improve local communities and increase community participation. Grants can cover up to half the project costs, matched by cash or in-kind contributions. The Communities Environment Program supports community groups to address local environmental priorities, connecting communities with their environment. Grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 are available for 100 per cent of project costs. “These fantastic grant programs provide much needed funding to South Coast community groups to undertake local projects,” she says. The bad news if you haven’t already heard about these programs is that eligible community groups need to submit expressions of interest to the programs by 9 September.

Ideal conditions for Kiama King Pro The world’s best bodyboarders enjoyed showing off their skills on the strong waves at Surf Beach, as they competed in the Australian leg of their World Tour. Mayor Mark Honey lived up to his promise to get out there amongst it if the event was secured for another three years. Go to apbtour.com to see highlights of the action, which was streamed live.

Boral proud of its local environmental record With the fate of its proposal to extend its sand mining operations to land to the south and east of Dunmore House (reported extensively in previous editions) still to be decided, Boral invited The Bugle to tour its existing sand mining operations to get an understanding of its local remediation track record.

Sandmining began at the Swamp Road Quarry in 1999, with the operation being bought by Boral in 2005. Throughout that time, progressive rehabilitation of the site has been undertaken, seen in the well established Dunmore Lakes (adjacent to the Estate) and the developing coastal wetlands within the still operational stages further north. “The trees around Dunmore Lake are 10 years old,” says Boral’s Environmental Coordinator for Dunmore, Ben Williams. “There are 6,300 tubestock planted in the area, and they’ve really taken off.” The plants have been supplied by Jamberoo Native Nursery, from local seed stock. Bird islands have been established as a safe home from predators like foxes, and the early site has won a number of awards for best practice. “Once we finishing dredging in an area we backfill to provide an edge to the lake,” says Mr Williams. “The buttress slopes provide different habitats for birds and fish.” Together with Boral’s Planning & Development

Boral’s Planning & Development Manager Adnan Voloder with Ben Williams, Boral’s Environmental Coordinator for Dunmore

Manager, Adnan Voloder, he explained that the proposed sites across the highway, to the east and south of Dunmore House, share many similarities with the existing operations – such as the extraction method, the processing plant (to which the sand will be pumped through existing and new pipes) and the method of rehabilitation. “The rehabilitation methodology will be the same, but we will be using a different range of species to establish a Bangalay forest community, rather than the Swamp Oak community on the west of the highway,” says Mr Williams. Apart from these well established practices, the larger pond (which is to be left as a lake on the request of the property owner) will have a bund surrounding it during the operational phase

27 metre depth for the larger of the ponds. It is one of the things he is clarifying with the Department. “It is a theoretical limit found by our test drilling at one point, not throughout.” As the hill that Dunmore House sits on is a large latite rock, the closer you get to it the shallower the sand resource. Closer to the river, the sand is deeper. The dredging of the pond will be guided by the depth of the resource and the need to keep a slope around the edges for stability. With regard to concerns about the smaller pit, opposite Minnamurra Waste Depot and its known leachate plume, Mr Voloder says they are disconnected hydrologically. “The consultant reports are satisfied that the risk of the proposal is very low in terms Continued on p12

to isolate its water in the case of a 100 year flood (the bund will be a seeded mound around the pond, to raise the edges of the site). “The intention is to make sure that, in the event of a flood, there is no interaction between our waters and the flood waters,” says Mr Voloder. This measure is not to protect the river but to contain the sand in a flood event. “The water in our ponds will be of a higher quality anyway [without farm residue], but the bund will stop us losing the resource.” He is adamant that the proposed pond will never take water from the river. “The river is down hill from the area. It would have to flow up hill.” Mr Voloder understands that people may have misunderstood the reference to a

Kiama businesses have again been recommended by brides from throughout the South Coast and Illawarra region, in the annual Brides’ Choice Awards. “These awards mean a lot as they are decided by a big survey of brides using the various services, rather than through self-nomination,” says Ian Yabsley. The business he owns with partner Dan Evans, Clipper Limousines, has won the Transport award for the third time in four years. In the other year they were highly commended. Their two restored Ansair

Flxible Clipper buses are a popular choice for ferrying bridal parties around in lounge-like surrounds. “Up to 14 people can travel together, rather than being split into different vehicles,” says Ian. “We really enjoy our role being around happy people, making the most of each other’s company. “The majority of our bookings come from word of mouth. We only service from Wollongong to Nowra, and we are booked out throughout the wedding season.” The buses are a passion for both Ian and Dan, who spent 2-3000 hours restoring them

from rusty old shells. “They were Australian built to an American design for Ansett, which was looking to set up a clipper fleet here,” says Ian. One hundred and thirty one of them were built, and 30 are still on the road. Other local businesses category winners were Summa Cakes and Making Faces Makeup Studio. Six wedding venues in the Kiama LGA were highly commended by the brides: Sebel Harbourside Kiama, Mecure Gerringong, Jamberoo Resort, Bush Bank, The Pavilion Kiama and Crooked River Winery.

to be replaced and repaired. The Library will feature corrugated steel walls, timber cladding and corrugated steel roofing, and will use photovoltaics for its power. The GLaM will include decking and paving, with landscaping of trees and bushes. The car park will include the existing 17 off-street spaces and an additional 20 spaces at the back of the building. The building and car park will all be fully accessible. One of the first activities will be the digging up of the foundation for the previous museum building, which was removed some time ago. Care will be taken to locate and extract a time capsule, which was deposited in the foundation 50 years ago.

To the Editor The large majority of the community have spoken, Heather Angus (Letters, The Bugle, 10 August 2019). We have persistently supported the operation of Surf Schools in Zone ‘A’, Ricketts Reserve and Seven Mile beach. The facts, that the anti-Surf School Brigade would rather forget, or ignore, are: As per the March Minutes. Over 200 people attended the March 2019, South Precinct Meeting. Overwhelmingly, the majority of attendees were in favour of the Surf School operating in Zone ‘A’ and elsewhere on Seven Mile Beach. So overwhelming was the majority community support, for the operation of the Surf Schools, both the mover and seconder of the motion to oppose the surf school, gracefully withdrew their motion. Additionally, the South Precinct Meeting received 114 written submissions supporting the continued operation of Surf Schools in Zone ‘A’, Ricketts Reserve and Seven Mile beach. Plus, it was reported, Council received nearly 150 submissions in support of the Surf Schools operating. That’s what I call the majority of the community, speaking loudly and clearly!

The winner of this year’s Bill Wheeler Award, which goes to a PHD student undertaking cutting edge bio-medical research at the ARC Centre for Excellence for Electromaterials Science at UOW, is Chunyan Qin. The Bill Wheeler Symposium and Award Scheme has been an annual event at the UOW Innovation Campus since 2009 and Kiama Rotary is proud to have made donations to the Symposium over that period. The annual award recognises and celebrates the life and bionics research of the late Bill Wheeler, OAM, by helping the winner undertake overseas research into their field of study. Memorably, Bill organised a Rotary fund raising event to help Professor Graeme Clarke, developer of the Cochlear Ear program, at Hartwell House in 2003. Ms Qin works at the UOW Intelligent Polymer Institute. She will be extending her research (into the electrical stimulation of conducting polymers to assist in matters relating to nerve injuries and neurodegeneration) overseas thanks to the Award.

Kiama Rotary President Barry Wilson, Ms Chunyan Qin, Mrs Lexie Wheeler and Prof Gordon Wallace

The address at this year’s community-based Symposium was given by Professor Gerard Sutton, one of Australia’s leading ophthalmic surgeons. He is internationally recognised as an expert in cataract surgery, laser vision correction and corneal transplantation. He also has a local connection, being the son of Professor Gerrard Sutton senior, a former Vice Chancellor of UOW. Mrs Lexie Wheeler formally presented the award, thanking UOW and Professor Wallace for the event and the honour extended to her late husband. She also thanked Kiama Rotary for its continuing involvement and contributions. Rotary President Barry Wilson presented a donation of $1,000 to Professor Wallace, the Executive Director of the Centre, congratulating

him and the University for the outstanding bio-medical research work it continues to undertake on the UOW Innovation Campus.

If you’d like to take part, but Instagram is a mystery, email your entry to the Library.

was right behind it.” For the last 15 years, the Kiama meals have been prepared by Flagstaff Fine Foods in Wollongong, which is itself a social enterprise providing employment to people with disabilities. Their kitchens produce 3,500-4,000 frozen meals per day, which are distributed across the state. “Meals on Wheels has been a great thing to be involved with,” says Ann. “People not only get a good meal, but they get to have a chat and know the community cares about them.” The 50th anniversary is going to be marked with a luncheon at the Pavilion on 15 August 2020. If you or your family have a connection with KMW and would like to attend, get in contact on the number below.

Kiama Council, from top to bottom, has a very strong commitment to keeping our community ‘in the loop’, especially when it comes to planning matters. Planning decisions are of great interest to most people as they can change the look and feel of a street, suburb or town. Certainly some development applications can divide community opinion. Council’s commitment to keeping everyone ‘in the loop’, is complemented by our community having a very strong interest in the full range of planning matters at all levels of government. But even with all this, the rules regarding notifications of planning decisions, as with the actual planning laws, are far from simple.

Fortunately, we are about to take a big step forward in terms of fixing this. The NSW Government has paved the way for councils to be able to have a single set of rules guiding who needs to be ‘in the loop’ when it comes to planning. So our council has drafted a Community Participation Plan, setting out council’s community participation requirements when it comes to planning matters. Early engagement in strategic planning processes enables the community and council to collaborate on establishing a shared vision and make it a reality. Good strategic planning sets out a vision which can be achieved by having the right planning controls in place to manage growth and

• newsletters • news and social media • council reports • public meetings • resident groups. The draft plan will be on public exhibition on council’s website (www.kiama. nsw.gov.au), from Monday 9 September until Tuesday 8 October. Like I said earlier, we’d all love for our planning laws to be simpler. But here we have a really important opportunity to do two things: First, we can ensure that the people who need to know when council is making a planning decisions know about it. Second, that they have a appropriate amount of time to digest complex planning issues, and properly prepare a response.

Just two years after getting a minibike for Christmas, Kiama’s 10 year old Jack Nunn is off to compete in the Australian Junior Motocross Titles. “This is my first Australian titles and I’m looking forward to the challenge,” he says. Last year he qualified to compete in the State titles, during his first year of racing. “I was in the top ten until my bike stopped in the last race,” says Jack. “It was very wet and muddy, with lots of bikes breaking down.” He’s hoping for better conditions in South Australia

at the end of September. His lead up has been good, as he is currently first place in the 65cc class and second in the 85cc class in the Nowra championship, as well as third place in the Wollongong 65cc championship. Jack’s dedication to his sport at such an early age sees him doing bike and personal training throughout the week, with rest days scheduled in. He’s already recovered from fracturing both elbows. “I want to be a professional motorbike rider when I’m older,” says Jack. “I want to race in the Australian titles and be good enough to go to America and race one day.”


Celebration of Woodstock music at Folk by the Sea

Kiama will get the chance to remember Woodstock when the 50th anniversary of the world’s most famous music festival is celebrated with a tribute show on the Saturday afternoon of the Folk by the Sea festival. The Woodstock Tribute is shaping as one of the highlights of the three day festival, which this year features 51 international, national and local acts. The Pavilion will reverberate to songs by the iconic bands and performers who featured at Woodstock in upstate New York back in August, 1969. They included Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Creedence Clearwater Rival, Joan Baez, Joe Cocker, The Band, Canned Heat, Arlo Guthrie and Jefferson Airplane. The Woodstock songs will be performed by popular Kiama band The Water Runners; the Carefree Road Band, which has a strong local flavour with four members living in the area; Kiama musician Penny Hartgerink; and Sydney duo Buck and Deanne. Kiama Councillor and Woodstock tragic Neil Reilly, who will MC the concert, says he’s been growing his hair especially for this celebration. John Tubridy, from the Carefree Road Band, is coordinating the concert and says the performers have chosen a wide range of songs and performers for their sets. “Our aim is to capture the great songs and great artists that made Woodstock famous. “But most of all it’s about

having fun and getting the audience up and dancing.” It’s also about celebrating the Woodstock generation, and John is hoping the audience will dress in clothes from the era, such as floral shirts and bell-bottom pants. A former Gerringong resident, John will be joined by Kiama residents Mark and Louise Raue, Joel Robards and Chris Paton when he performs in the Carefree Road Band. The band will play Woodstock classics ranging from Joan Baez’s We Shall Overcome to Canned Heat’s Going Up The Country and Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Proud Mary. John Littrich, singer with the Water Runners (above), says he was just three years old when Woodstock was held, but he loves the songs from the era. The Water Runners’ set will include songs by Crosby, Stills and Nash and Joe Cocker. It will also feature Paul McCartney’s Beatles’ classic Blackbird, which Crosby, Stills and Nash (without Neil Young) performed at Woodstock. Penny Hartgerink was born almost two decades after Woodstock but grew up in a home where music by Woodstock-era bands was staple fare. “Bob Dylan might not have played at Woodstock, but his songs were covered by other artists, so I have chosen one of favourite Dylan songs, I Shall be Released, which was performed at Woodstock by both The Band and Joan Baez,” she says.

Her other songs are from The Band, and the Johnny Cash classic Ring Of Fire, which was performed at Woodstock by Country Joe McDonald. Buck and Deanne will perform McDonald’s Woodstock anti-Vietnam War anthem, Feeling Like I’m Fixing To Die Rag, and songs by artists ranging from Baez, Arlo Guthrie and John Sebastian to Jefferson Airplane. Tickets are now available at on the festival’s website, with a three day Early Bird offer of $90 ending on September 26. Day and session passes are also available. Details: 27-29 September, Kiama Showground. Woodstock Tribute 1.45-4.30pm on Saturday 28 Sept. Tickets from www.folkbythesea.com.au or by calling 1300 887034.

Visual tribute to The Beatles Sixties music has also inspired the latest exhibition of one of Kiama’s most successful artists, Ken Tucker. For the Benefit of Mr K will hang at the Little Blowhole Art Bar throughout September. The deeper meaning of the lyrics of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band stimulated suitably abstract thoughts and visuals in Ken’s brain. “Sometimes I just paint for fun,” he says.

Postcard home Nusa Lembogan is a lovely island for a quiet, relaxing holiday. A quick boat trip off the coast of Bali, it is a relaxed place to spend time drinking cocktails whilst watching stunning sunsets, swimming with manta rays and turtles, exploring intriguing bays and inlets, or lying on a bean bag catching up on a good book. Great for surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving, as well as some lovely sunrise and sunset spots. Most of my days were spent reading, exploring and eating somewhere new for lunch, and then enjoying a massage before indulging in a couple of cocktails and dinner with a stunning panorama of the setting sun. There’s a fabulous French restaurant on the beach, where the owner is happy to indulge your school level French, and a wonderful organic place a couple of door up from there that has vegetarian options. There are also a lot of eateries on the beach, overlooking the harbour and scattered all over the island and the adjoining island, Ceningan. There’s usually more than one place that has live music with local artists. Depending on where you stay, you can walk, or hire a scooter or golf cart to get you most places, and lots of restaurants are happy to send transport to pick you up and take you home.

Friends of Minnamurra River, and a group of others opposing the expansion, including Cliff Mason and Warren Holder, visited the Swamp Road Quarry in April but did not tour the existing operations or the proposed sites. They remain keen to do the latter (Boral says it is up to the landowner to give permission). Mr Maitland says he’s pleased to hear of the rehabilitation Boral has undertaken at its current site, but stresses the two sites are different. “The current Rocklow Creek operation has very few significant environmental constraints, but any interference with the catchment of the Minnamurra River is going to have implications for ecosystems identified in State and Federal legislation. “If it came forward as a new proposal rather than an extension of an existing one, it would require a full EIS.” Given the importance of the high grade sand to the State’s construction industry, and the resulting price it commands, Boral is keen to have somewhere to go when is existing resource runs out in April/May. The final decision will be made by the Independent Planning Commission.
