Hair raising charity event eclipses target It took Matilda Spencer 18 months to grow her hair and hairdresser Sharon Edwards no more than 10 minutes to pop it into ﬁve plaited pigtails and cut it off. Mount Gambier’s Limestone Coast Pantry hosted the Hair With Heart event, which saw seven year old Matilda donate her gorgeous long blonde hair to the Variety Club charity that provides wigs for children with alopecia.
Prior to the 4.30pm hair cut for charity, Matilda was running around the front lawn of the Limestone Coast Pantry with her younger sister Eleanor and a couple of school friends – relaxed and ready to complete her mission that started when she was six years old. She was inspired by a contestant on Australian Ninja Warrior and that is what started this 18 month campaign that has seen her already easily eclipse her $500 target, which say at $1024 when Matilda went to bed last Wednesday night with her new hair do with funds still trickling in. There is also proceeds from a donation box and a special Matilda Ninja baked spud deal at the Limestone Coast Pantry that saw $1 from the sale of each potato going to the cause to be added to the final tally And many of the group of onlookers last Wednesday also went home with a Matilda Ninja baked spud for dinner. “I was watching Njnja Warrior with my mum when I was six and saw an eight year old girl without hair – the girl cheering her on also had alopecia,” Matilda said. “Mum (Liz Spencer) explained they had a disease that meant her hair didn’t grow and I asked mum if I could give her my hair and she said yes.” Donating hair for a wig is not a simple process and that is why Matilda has been dedicated to the cause for so long, having to have at least 35.5cm to cut off to make a wig. Matilda ended up losing 38cm of her own locks.
“I looked into what charity Matilda could get involved with and most were tied up with children with cancer but because it was someone with alopecia that inspired Matilda I chose the Variety Club because they provide wigs for children with alopecia and cancer,” mum Liz Spencer said.
“...I am a little bit scared...” Matilda Spencer Matilda’s five pigtails will form just part of a wig for a young alopecia sufferer, with it taking between 10 and 20 similar donations to put together a full head of hair. Variety Club donates the wigs at no charge and given they cost around $6000 to create, that is why donations of hair and money, like Matilda has done, are so vital to the Hair With Heart Program. Matilda went through the 30 minute transformation with a smile on her face although just before the first snip, which was ceremoniously competed by her mother, she did say ‘I am a little bit scared’. Once the 38cm lengths of Matilda’s hair had been removed, younger sister Eleanor was given the responsibility of looking after the precious locks – the younger sister now
“...take really good care of them because you know what, they don’t belong to Matilda anymore...” Liz Spencer (Matilda’s mother)
proud to be the family member with the longest hair – while Sharon Edwards, from Studio E’Lan, completed Matilda’s new look. “Take really good care of them because you know what, they don’t belong to Matilda anymore,” Liz Spencer told her youngest daughter. Liz now simply pops the precious hair into the post and in time, Matilda’s sacrifice will see another young person gifted the head of hair of which they have always dreamed. And she looks set to help even more children. She had barely looked at her new hairstyle in the mirror when she vowed to grow her hair for another Hair With Heart campaign, also asking her mother if she will join the cause.

Community mulch days return in style Wattle Range Council hosted its first free community mulch day for 2020 at the Millicent Saleyards earlier this month and the popular waste initiative received a stunning response from residents. A record amount of 125 trailer loads of mulch on the day, eclipsing last year’s average of 74 trailer loads per session held. “With some slight changes to previous years due to social distancing measures in place, it
was a successful day,” council’s director engineering services Peter Halton said. “The free community mulch days have occurred since 2016 as a waste initiative to divert the community’s garden waste from landfill. All green waste disposed of by residents at council’s waste facilities is tub-grinded with timber to develop the product. An improvement in the process this year is combining only ‘clean’ timber such as wooden
pallets, reducing debris in the final product from painted/laminated timber items.”. The next Millicent session is set
down for July 19, with additional days to be held on the third Sunday of every month until November. Penola will host Community Mulch Days every fourth Sunday of every second month, starting up on July 26. Those taking advantage of the opportunity will need to bring a tarpaulin and suitable rope to secure the load before exiting the site. A disclaimer will also need to be signed prior to collection. As the organic material may contain plant seed, sharp and splintery
objects, dusts and allergens, council strongly recommends the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when handling this material. PPE should include heavy duty gloves, long sleeved shirt and pants, safety glasses and dust mask or other respiratory aids. Further information on mulch days including dates, disclaimer forms and locations can be found at www. wattlerange.sa.gov.au/wasteinitiatives or contacting Wattle Range Council on (08)8733 0900.
Cover - The Splendid Egg says thanks to their loyal customer base A letter of gratitude to our community: During what has been an unprecedented period of our lives, we at The Splendid Egg have also been on the rollercoaster of emotion both personally and as a small local business. However, one thing about chickens is there is no on/off switch and the eggs just keep coming. When COVID 19 hit we were in the same state of flux that everyone all seemed to find themselves. Initially we were really concerned that we were going to have a massive over supply of eggs as 50% of our stock is used by the cafes, restaurants & caterers. However, with the lock down and all of us having to stay at home, what we were pleasantly surprised about was that any surplus of eggs that we thought we might have was now being bought by the greater community through our retail stockists. Since then we have had to work hard to keep up with demand and now as the cafes, restaurants & caters are all starting to reopen their businesses we are working even harder to make sure that we can continue to support our community and all those that have supported us through this time. Demand for our eggs has dramatically increased over recent weeks and we are working hard to keep up. This support has allowed us to grow our business and last week we purchased additional hens. At
In ancient Greece and Rome, doctors used spider webs to make bandages for their patients.

the end of the day, our mission is to support our community by providing them with a healthy nutritious premium product that is ethically and sustainably produced right here in our region. The Splendid Egg has been passionate about establishing a direct connection to our community around ethical and sustainable, premium produce and recognise that we are not alone in this field. We are grateful to be apart of a growing collective of like minded producers, food makers and small business owners that support each other and are supported by the region. We continue to provide support to a number of community organisations where we can. Some of our proudest moments include supplying organisations such as Oz Harvest and Kickstart for Kids in Adelaide, donating eggs to local community groups ac.care, Spare Ya Change For Kids and Sunset Kitchen. Donating eggs for the annual White Ribbon and the Rotary Club Australia Day breakfast. Have you ever wondered about the life of the hen that laid the egg that made your breakfast? Our splendid hens live in nesting caravans that have been specifically designed for pasture fed chickens to provide a clean, efficient and safe place for them to lay eggs, roost at night and shelter from the weather. The trailers are moved every week so the chickens are always on fresh
pasture. Being on the move all the time and out in the open, fresh air reduces risk of disease or illness. The chickens are also helping us improve our pastures. They fertilise the soil with their manure and sanitise the paddocks, scratching up and spreading other animal manure and eating any snails and grubs that they find. We also have help from our nine Maremma dogs who loyally guard our flocks. Our happy hens have freedom to roam and a more varied diet than supposed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;free-rangeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hens. Splendid hens produce incredibly creamy, nutrient dense eggs that taste delicious and cook beautifully. A pastured free-range egg is packed full of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, D, E, K2, B-12, folate, riboflavin, zinc, calcium, beta carotene, choline, and tons of omega 3 fatty acids. We are incredibly grateful for the support of our community. Thank you!

Chris clocks oﬀ for the last time As a 17 year old Chris Smith had not really locked in a career choice. Growing up in Port Augusta, shearing was one of the top options, while the biggest employer of apprentices in the city was the Commonwealth Railways. The son of an electrician, Chris decided to follow in his father’s footsteps, but after applying for what was basically an apprenticeship lottery with the railways, an almost five decade career in plumbing began. He packed away his tools for the last time last Friday without an ounce of regret and 50 years of memories. “Leaving high school I didn’t know what I wanted to do but my father had been an electrician so I wanted to be an electrician,” Chris said. “I applied for an apprenticeship with the railways and they basically picked the industry for you – I could have also been given a fitter and turner or boilermaker apprenticeship but they gave me plumbing. I didn’t even know what a tap washer was when I started.” But her certainly took to the trade, completing his four year apprenticeship, and working by himself by the time he entered his third year. It was a role that saw Chris on the road a lot. “We were always going bush,” Chris said. “We worked on all the railways right up to Alice Springs and all the way over to Kalgoorlie. It was nothing for me to go away for weeks on end but as a single guy it didn’t bother me.
“...it was nothing for me to go away for weeks on end...” CHRIS SMITH
I spent a lot of time on the Nullarbor.” Next came a stint with the Public Buildings Department, seeing Chris moving from working for the Federal Government to transferring to a State Government role. Again it was a role that saw Chris on the road, working on schools, hospitals and police stations across South Australia. Upheaval in his personal life saw Chris on the hunt for a fresh start and a position within the Public Buildings Department, based in Mount Gambier, was on offer and Chris jumped at the opportunity. “I knew one person – my boss – when I moved here but it did not take me long to fall in love with the place,” Chris said. “I joined Apex pretty early on and that is where I made lots of friends and met a lot of the top businessmen in town. I have stayed friends with so many of them.” The move to Mount Gambier came in 1978 and it is where he has built his life, marrying again, having two daughters and now enjoying the role of grandfather. “I just fell in love with Mount Gambier,” Chris said. “I loved that it was halfway between Adelaide and Melbourne and it was also when I started watching VFL footy for the first time and become a Hawthorn tragic. I’ve been with them through thick and thin. I also loved being involved in a service club and being able to do a lot of things for the community and that helped my relationships as a plumber.” For Chris, being a good plumber has been as much about building relationships and getting to know his customers, as it has been digging
“...I didn’t even know what a tap washer was when I started...” CHRIS SMITH
“...I knew one pe rson – my boss – when I moved he re but it did not take me long to fall in lo ve with the place...” CHRIS SMITH trenches, fixing rooves or plumbing a new home. “As far as I’m concerned they (customers) are paying your wages and they deserve the respect – they are the boss,” Chris said. “People say I could talk underwater but right to the end, I had customers who would ring up and ask for me.” Chris basically became a institution in the plumbing world in this region, working for Woods & Forests in the mills at Nangwarry, Mount Gambier and Mt Burr, spending 10 years at the gas company with Greg Ballintyne before rounding out his career at Tye’s Plumbing for the past eight years. “People would meet me at their home, give me their keys, head back to work and I would just drop them back when I was done,” Chris said. “I always let them know what I’ve done and I even take photos on my phone so they can see the job straight away.”
“...as far as I’m concerned they (customers) are paying your wages and they deserve the respect – they are the boss...” CHRIS SMITH Basically Chris paid the percentages, knowing exactly how word of mouth marketing works. “If you do one bad thing, they’ll tell 10 people and if you do one good thing, you’ll be lucky if two people find out,” Chris said. “It is human nature, it is how people talk.” The master plumber and qualified gas fitter is set to turn 66 in September and packing up the tools now was all about ensuring his body was still in good enough shape to enjoy his retirement. “I have spent a lot of time on my knees and that has really started to take its toll,” Chris said. “I didn’t want to be a cripple by the time I gave it up., needing a walking stick and not being able to get out of bed. People don’t realise the toll it takes on your body. We’ve all got scars.” Chris is a passionate ab out surf fishing and is a life member of the South East Amateur Surf Fishing Club and has also recently invested in a new tinny. “So me and the dog can go fishing,” he said. Travel within Australia is also on the agenda, putting some money in the pockets of caravan park owners once the borders are open again. “Every couple of years we have
travelled overseas and I’ve loved that too,” Chris said. “We’ve been to Thailand three times and went through Vietnam from top to bottom. I loved the people there. I loved the culture. It was really beautiful and I would go back to Vietnam any day. We’ve also done a cruise around New Zealand and that was a beautiful place as well.” As his career drew to a close, Chris has relished the opportunity to work with the apprentices and young tradesmen working their way through the ranks. “The young blokes at work have definitely kept me young,” Chris said. “I have taken them under my wing and tried to teach them as best I can. I show them two ways to do something every time – the hard way and the easy way – and then they can decide what works for them. You can’t put an old head on young shoulders.” Walking out last Friday was like leaving his family for Chris – that is what his time at Tye’s has been. And when he went through the tough time of losing his young grandson to Meningococcal a couple of years ago, his workmates rallied around him. “Dave (Tye) even shouted me and Denise (my wife) a weekend at Robe just to give us a break,” Chris said. “We worked hard with Troy Bell and Tony Pasin to get everything through parliament to get kids the vaccination they need in South Australia and we did it so families don’t have to go through what we went through. During that whole time everyone at
work was a solid rock for me.” The young blokes have also been his go-to for technology issues and working his phone properly so he knows he will miss that, as well as getting stirred up, all in good fun. And Chris’s farewell was all about family – his wife and daughters, as well as his work family, with David and Louise Tye hosting a fitting celebration for the popular plumber. “The past several years Chris has been an extremely valued member of the Tye’s Plumbing Service team and has been a wonderful mentor to the team’s apprentices and tradesmen,” David said. “Experience and trade knowledge are among his many qualities that will be sadly missed by the team as well his long list of endearing customers. His bubbly personality and infectious smile sure to be missed by all.” Chris is looking forward to retirement but also has a sense of trepidation about the next chapter in his life. “It is going to be a completely different phase but I am looking forward to it – it’s how life goes,” Chris said.

Look who got invited to they were only too happy to help.â&#x20AC;? Euan then ran lines with the two Neighbours stars and the director before those immortal words â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;quiet on setâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Euan was filming his first ever scene on Aussieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite soap opera. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was done in 20 minutes but it was just so much fun and I had an awesome time,â&#x20AC;? he said. Given Euan is basically at somewhat of a standstill at the moment, with the arts sector all but dormant, the reminder of his Neighbours stint was a shot in the arm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been so tough for our industry as it has been for everyone,â&#x20AC;? Euan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The arts is a luxury for people and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just been no kind of update on when thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all coming
â&#x20AC;&#x153;...I was done in 20 minutes but it w as just so much fun and I had an awesome time...â&#x20AC;? back. A lot of musicals have just been cancelled â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not even postponed. There are very few that have just been postponed to the end of the year or middle of next year. There is just not a lot happening.â&#x20AC;? That being said, for the MJ Dance Studio graduate, the chance to enjoy some down time, given he has been one of the fortunate performers to basically morph from one production to the next since debuting in A Chorus Line as a teenager, has been cherished. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a blessing in that sense for everyone in the industry who are always on the road, travelling and moving around,â&#x20AC;? Euan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As

Euan has been teaching a little via Zoom and a few castings have come up meaning he has a few gigs on the horizon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do have some things to look forward to in the next month or two, nothing major but little things to keep me busy,â&#x20AC;? Euan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Victoria has taken a crazy turn. We thought we were heading towards the finish line but now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been brought back to

He used to be one of our neighbours and last week Millicentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Euan Doidge was Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighbour, appearing on the long running Aussie TV soap opera. The musical theatre star played a journalist and featured in a scene with pivotal characters Elly Conway (Jodi Anasta) and Shaun Watkins (Brad Moller) as he looked to illicit a comment from Elly regarding long time Neighbours villain Finn Kelly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so excited â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Neighbours and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been going forever,â&#x20AC;? Euan said, thrilled he has added the iconic TV show to his impressive resume that includes key roles in Saturday Night Fever, Priscilla, Kinky Boots, A Chorus Line, Legally Blonde and Les Miserables. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wanted to do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a little cameo, just appearing in the show and now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done it,â&#x20AC;? he said. The opportunity presented itself just before the world plunged into the current health crisis with Euan heading to casting for the show, sending in a tape to put himself in the running for a role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the end it all happened quite quickly,â&#x20AC;? Euan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard within a couple of weeks that I was going to have a cameo, that I had a little journalist role. I must admit, though, that I put it to bed once I filmed it and hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really thought about it or told anyone really.â&#x20AC;? That was four months ago but a reminder in his calendar alerted him to last Wednesday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s episode of Neighbours and he did host a small viewing party at home â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he is currently living in Melbourne with his partner and his partnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did realise that my little appearance would not be at the top of everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priorities at the moment,â&#x20AC;? Euan said. But two special fans were thrilled to be able to watch the talented triple threat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Facetimed my niece and nephew and they loved that Uncle Euan was on TV,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really was awesome and I received so much love and support. So many messages on my social media and text messages. I was so surprised how many people watched the show, people I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have expected and people I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spoken to in years.â&#x20AC;? At the end of the day, it was just one day, with Euan arriving to the set around 8am on the day of shooting. First stop was wardrobe, followed by 30 minutes in hair and make up and then playing the waiting game in the studio green room util he was called to set. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the first time I met Jodi (Elly) and Brad (Shaun) and everyone was so kind and so relaxed compared to the world Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m from, the theatre world,â&#x20AC;? Euan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything I needed,

op h w d o lc о c je C ncil cаh Mount Gambier’s City Band Hall has not had its usual soundtrack in the past few months with the strains of strings and brass instruments replaced with the sound of sledge hammers as the tired facility, which is more than 50 years old, received a much needed makeover.
Part of the transformation was around making a better rehearsal space for the hall’s current tenants but also to return it to its former glory, not just as a function centre but as a host for conference and other workshop type events for community groups and the corporate sector.
Indoor bowls is back at the Mount Gambier Senior Citizens Club ready to enjoy the latest city council funded renovations
So while the kitchen and bathrooms have been overhauled, a lick of paint added, new storage spaces created and historical displays put together, one of the other items on the wish list of Limestone Coast Symphony Orchestra’s Jennie Matthews was a digital projector and state-of-the-art sound system to further encourage the space as a training and meeting facility for groups, allowing the hall tenants to generate some income. That dream has quickly become a reality courtesy of the City of Mount Gambier Community Development Fund – a $200,000 short term funding scheme initiated by the City of Mount Gambier designed to enable community and sporting groups to undertake works at their facilities during closures forced by COVID-19. The fund has two streams – one for minor works up to $5,000 and major works for projects up to $20,000, with the potential to increase the pool of available funding. The Mount Gambier City Band secured a $15,000 grant from that fund and so the technology aspect of the renovation is now set to put the finishing touches to the hall makeover. “The digital projector and sound system are not just for the people hiring the hall but for the music groups that use the hall for training and development,” Ms Matthews said. “It just makes the hall more useful for a wider range of people.”
“...it just makes the hall more useful for a wider range of people...” Jennie Matthews (Mount Gambier City Band Hall) Ms Matthews praised the simplicity of the application process, which lonely had the caveats of undertaking and completing the project as soon as possible, as well as using local tradespeople where possible. “Getting this funding and being able to install the projector and the sound system, which we thought would have to do down the track, is simply the icing on the cake of what we have achieved in the past few months,” Ms Matthews said. The Mount Gambier Senior Citizens Club, which has also been in the throes of much needed renovations to its tired facility picked up a total $25,000 from the fund for a couple of projects. A $5000 grant was earmarked for new LED lighting in the main hall and
“...we are back playing cards in small groups and indoor bowls was back last week in smaller groups...” Peter Ploenges (Mount Gambier Senior Citizens Club)
two new chairs for the club’s newly installed office area. The $20,000 grant has financed new flooring as well as a Crimsafe security door to ensure better security at the premises. A safety rail and new double doors have also been installed with some finishing touches still to be put in place. Club president Peter Ploenges said the grant was greatly appreciated and came at the perfect time to complete the works just as the club was reopening its doors, albeit in a limited capacity to members. “We are back playing cards in small groups and indoor bowls was back last week in smaller groups,” Mr Ploenges said. The other tenants are also slowly returning to the club including the Open Door Church, the University of the Third Age and the karate club. The Mount Gambier Senior Citizens Club is also looking to hold its annual general meeting on August 19, restrictions permitting. The Mount Gambier History Group is also one of the happy recipients of a council windfall, pocketing $17,860 for some much needed works at their Reidy Park Centre home. From the aesthetics of new blinds to replace the aging curtains, to a stunning new storage system, to a new storage cupboard for one of their rooms, to new LED lighting, which will have an economic impact as well with power bills, and better climate control storage, including insulation and a new ceiling, for their records, the Mount Gambier History Group is so grateful for the cash injection that will now see them cross things off their wish list that might well have been years away. CONT. OPP. PAGE
C ncil cаh jec о lco d w h op ms FROM OPP. PAGE Mount Gambier History Group secretary and librarian Jeanette Aslin said the windfall has seen a handful of the group’s members carting items to alternative areas in the Reidy Park Centre while the works are completed and those same members will then need to re-store everything. The storage unit, that will span the height and breadth of the entire back wall of the group’s main room, complete with a central, double door glass display cabinet, is set to be a godsend. It will also incorporate a wide enough bench are running along the shelving to allow work space for members to perform their cataloguing, as well as the members of the public that use the group’s resources for research purposes. “We have 20 to 25 members in our group and even before the current protocols, we did not have a lot of room for the not just the members but the general public that come in to look at materials,” Mrs Aslin said. Fortuitously Mrs Aslin had been using the shutdown to go through the group’s extensive resources to just ensure everything was in its place and ready for members to return – that has meant, the reorganisation of the volumes of paperwork, which will now happen in earnest with the updated storage options the group will have once renovation have been completed in the next few weeks, is already well underway. “I had already decided to take advantage of the shutdown and catch up and prepare for when members and the public could come back so we are well on our way to reorganising the entire collection,” Mrs Aslin said. “We were always hopeful we would get the grant but we didn’t build our hopes up too much and so in the end, we were ready for action although it still four of us two full days to move all the records into other areas when we got the news, because part of the conditions is to get the work done as quickly as possible.” And they certainly are, with the tradesmen on site getting the job done from last week with a mid-July date set for completion.
Group member Aileen Clarke said the grant and subsequent redevelopment and refurbishment had provided the group with the ideal opportunity to reorganise its vast catalogue. “We will also give the walls a paint before the new cabinetry goes in – it will be like a brand new facility for us,” she said. While it is a predominantly paper based catalogue of information, the group does have a number of items of clothing that have been donated, including military uniforms and a wedding dress that is more than 100 years old and they do come in handy for the group’s displays and talks held for community groups, particularly aged care facilities. “When the group moved to the Reidy Park centre in 2001 they came with three boxes of information and now we have three rooms almost overflowing with information,” Mrs Aslin said. A donation from the late Laurie Fox of 10 years of The Border Watch editions, one of the many donations members are set to catalogue as part of the collection. The good news for the group, is aside from the recent windfall, it also snared a History Trust of South Australia grant at the end of last year to purchase archival storage boxes so combining that with the insulation and new ceiling in the main storage room, which will better preserve records, as well as the vast floor to ceiling storage unit set to grace the main meeting room and the new cupboard for the group’s third room, the group is all set at the moment. “Our job is to preserve history and this will make it so much easier,” Mrs Aslin said. “It’s about keeping things for future generations and sharing with the community.” The Mount Gambier History Group also ensured they engaged local contractors for all the work with Dollar Curtains and Blinds, J.Day Con Pty. Ltd, Kitchen Solutions, D & K Wright Electrical Contractors and SP Carpentry all part of the redevelopment project. See our sport pages for more community grant recipients.
“...our job is to preserve history and this will make it so much easier...it’s about keeping things for future generations and sharing with the community...” Jeanette Aslin (Mount Gambier History Group)
In Fred’s Memory More than three decades ago, Fred Bresolin spent six months preparing and fundraising for a charity walk to Adelaide. His mission – to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS). It was 1988 and the 43 year old was not working at the time when he decided to embark on the almost 500 kilometre pilgrimage, prompted by his own personal experience. “My auntie had a brain aneurysm and as soon as they realised it, they flew her to Adelaide straight away,” Fred’s widow Luigina Bresolin said, as the family reflected on the third anniversary of Fred’s passing. Luigina was by Fred’s side every step of the way as he prepared for the Mount Gambier to Adelaide trek. Fred would walk to Port MacDonnell and Millicent as training for the experience, and then Luigina would join him as the couple doorknocked for donations. “After what happened with my auntie, Fred just thought there had to be something he could do to raise money for the RFDS,” Luigina said. “He got in touch with Robert Ryan and that’s where the idea of the walk came. He had never done anything like that before but he was determined to help.” The couple were overwhelmed by the generosity of the South East community and as Fred set off on his 16 day journey, he had raised an astonishing $23,000 – a figure matched by the State Government in the wake of the remarkable solo effort. Fred’s good friend Peter Scott drove the support car behind his hiking mate – the car having been generously offered up by Geoff Brown, when he was running a local Toyota dealership. “I drove with Peter Scott’s wife and met them at Hanhdorf to follow Fred into Adelaide,” Luigina said. “Amazingly apart from sore feet,
he pulled up really well physically after the walk. He got a lot of toots and a lot of waves the whole way to Adelaide.” The Bresolin family’s association with the RFDS did not stop with Fred’s charity feat – he ended up becoming a RFDS patient, as did Luigina’s mother. The charity walk also sparked the establishment of the Mount Gambier RFDS Support Group, with both Fred and Luigina spending time on the committee, with Luigina doing a stint as treasurer. The couple also was prominent in the Association of Italian and Australian Pensioners and Elderly, with Fred serving as president, and it is through that association that a donation was made to the RFDS last week. A $2000 cheque was passed on to the Mount Gambier RFDS Support Group in memory of Fred and his long standing and passionate support of the life saving service.
The funds will go towards the fundraising efforts for the Mount Gambier RFDS Patient Transfer Facility. The RFDS recently purchased an existing hangar at Mount Gambier Airport and ontinue to push the campaign to finance the transformation of what amounted to a tin shed into a state-of-the-art Patient Transfer Facility that will enhance patient care and operational response times for critical patients on the Limestone Coast when they need it most. Twice a day, the Royal Flying Doctor Service lands in the South East – at least once a day in Mount Gambier – to respond to medical emergencies and provide the finest care to people in need of life-saving surgery or specialist care. It sees what is a five hour journey by road take 60 minutes in the air, ensconced in a what is basically a flying intensive care unit. Above (main) - Fred Bresolin walking into Millicent while on his 1988 RFDS fundraising walk.

Dog and cat renewal notices will issued in July to more than 300,000 dog or cat owners by post, SMS or email, with instructions for reregistering and paying via Dogs and Cats Online. Pet owners can still pay registration fees at their local council office, however Dogs and Cats Online’s 24 hour access makes
the registration and renewal process more convenient to manage with a few mouse few clicks. Dogs and Cats Online is a one stop service for all annual registration payments, as well as dog and cat microchipping, desexing and breeder details. Your dog’s registration number is a life time number, so don’t expect to
WHEN YOUR COMFORT COUNTS There’s only one place to go!!
receive a new disc with your renewal notice. Gone are the days of a new plastic disc each year. Many dog owners prefer to have their dogs unique number engraved on a metal disc or collar ID plate – just make sure the registration number is clear. All cats are required to be registered in Dogs and Cats Online. Some councils charge for registration. Dogs and Cats Online is a statewide register for microchip and desex information which are mandatory practices for dogs and cats, and breeders. Anyone who sells a dog or cat they’ve bred must be registered in the system. Dog and Cat Management Board chairperson David Parkin said keeping your information in Dogs and Cats Online current is important for many reasons. “If you move house or your pet goes missing, you’re more likely to have them returned if their registration and microchip details are up to date,” Mr Parkin said. “Councils and shelters can quickly identify any dogs and cats found and reunite them with their owners as soon as possible. Owners can also post ‘missing’ messages and a contact number in the system. When owners move to another South Australian council area, or if the dog or cat goes to a new home, the registration must be transferred to the new owner who should also be given the animal’s registration disc. Transfers are easy first the original owner initiates a transfer in Dogs and Cats Online and provides the transfer number to the new owner to then log in and complete the transfer.” For more information visit http://www. dogandcatboard.com.au

Time to make your pitch Three grass-roots community organisations will have the opportunity to pitch their story at a live crowdfunding event with donors to raise vital funds. United Way Glenelg and its partner AWA Alliance Bank expect to provide guaranteed funding of at least $8000 per participating organisation to match pledges made by audience members at the event. This means every dollar raised for the organisation on the night up to $8000 will be matched. United Way Glenelg executive officer Nicole Carr said Shark Pitch was an excellent opportunity to connect donors and community organisations in an innovative way. “It allows people wanting to give back, whether financially, in time or with services and products to link with organisations already established but needing support,” she said. “Community groups can up skill their staff and/or volunteers with personalised guidance towards their pitch in soft skills like public speaking, pitching and marketing themselves. To support each “pitcher” to articulate their request, we provide pitch coaching with trainer
and English teacher Debra Crespan of Bayview College. This will give pitchers greater confidence on the night and make it a more relaxed atmosphere” Each pitcher will have six minutes on the night to persuade a live and virtual audience to pledge to their cause. Powerhouse Productions will also work with all three organisations to develop a one-minute video of their work, allowing them to gain valuable exposure to potential volunteers, funders and connect with the community into the future too. This year’s event will be modified to include a small face-to-face and larger virtual live audience. The face-to-face event is to be held at South West Community Church (formally known as Star Cinema) and limited by tickets, will be complimented by a Facebook Live event, both to be held on Tuesday, September 1, from 6pm. Tickets available soon.
With the South Australian Government outlining further easing of current restrictions, the Mount Gambier Library continues to expand its service delivery. The next phase of the staged reopening, which started last week, has seen the library opening hours extended, capacity limits further increased and time limits on visits removed. The facility is open from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, with an increased capacity from 20 to 75 people. The Les Hill Local History Room has also re-opened enabling people to resume their research, Justice of the Peace volunteers are back on deck each Monday and Wednesday from 12pm to 1pm to certify documents (bookings required) and the team of library volunteers have returned to lend a hand at the popular facility. Mount Gambier Library Manager Georgina Davison thanked the community for complying with the restrictions and indicated further resumption of services is on the horizon. “We would like to thank our wonderful customers for being so patient and working with us to ensure the safety of our community, while complying with strict guidelines,” she said. “It is because of this compliance and cooperation that we are able to expand into the next phase of returning with more services, programs and extended opening hours. Customers will need to exercise continued compliance with sanitising, physical distancing and providing their name and contact details upon arrival.” The library will also return to opening on weekends with the doors opening from 10am to 12noon from July 4 on both Saturdays and Sundays. With July school holidays on the horizon, the library will be providing a full online program of events. Children will be able to register beforehand and collect a ‘MakerBox’ to assist with the program. “These fun filled boxes will contain absolutely everything needed to
complete incredible activities from home with tutorials being streamed on Facebook and the City of Mount Gambier YouTube channel,” Ms Davison said. Whilst the library continues to offer online programming for the timebeing, the onsite return of programs is set for after the school holidays. “During this unprecedented time it has become even more apparent that the library plays an important role within our community so it is pleasing to be able to continue rolling out the stages of our re-opening to reward our patrons and community for doing the right thing,” Ms Davison said.

KEEPING IT FRESH Herbs are a great way of injecting flavour into your meals and fresh is always best so if you do buy your herbs fresh, store them on a windowsill in water (as if they were a vase of flowers) to maintain their integrity for longer. Better still start your own mini herb garden and grow them yourself.
STICK TO THE BASICS Before starting a renovation, always check that the plumbing and electricals are up to scratch, and if there are any structural remedial works that need to be done, such as rectifying water damage or rising damp. They’re not the most exciting things to invest in, but it will help avoid costly repairs down the track

Method Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a 10-cup (2.5L) ovenproof casserole pan with baking paper. Combine the flour, polenta and 1/2 cup (40g) of the parmesan in a large bowl. Season. Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the combined olive, rosemary and oregano. Stir to combine. Make a well in the centre. Add the buttermilk and use a round-bladed knife to stir until a soft, sticky dough forms. Turn onto a well-floured work surface and gently knead until just smooth. Shape the dough into a disc and place in the prepared pan. Use a small sharp knife to cut a cross into the top of the dough. Sprinkle evenly with the remaining parmesan. Bake for 45 mins or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the top. Serve warm or at room temperature with rosemary sprigs and oil.
Funding secured for After Dark program The Glenelg Libraries are set to open ‘after dark’ thanks to a successful funding bid. The Portland Library has secured two years of funding through the Libraries After Dark program to extend opening hours in the evening to promote the facility as a community lounge and as an alternative to a gambling venue. The Libraries After Dark program is an initiative of the Moreland City Council and supports libraries across Victoria through funds provided by the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation. Library and information services manager Yvette Parker said the program would create new opportunities for both the library and the community. “Libraries After Dark provides a safe and welcoming alternative to gambling venues for those who might be struggling with gambling addiction,” she said. “The grant will fully fund the provision of staffing and resources to
provide opening hours to 10pm every Thursday evening at the Portland Library. Libraries are of course a great source of knowledge, but they are also a place to meet people and make new friends. By extending our opening hours, we hope that we can strengthen the Portland Library’s role as a community lounge and an inclusive space for people in the evening.” The Glenelg Shire was successful in its application due to the high gambling losses recorded and the proximity of the library to the Shire’s four gaming venues. The After Dark program will commence in August.

Riddoch Art Gallery set to open new exhibition As a direct response to the experience of recent events, the Riddoch Art Gallery will open a new exhibition called Inside/Out, drawn from the Riddoch Art Gallery Collection. Opening on Thursday,July 9, the exhibition focuses on interior and exterior spaces, and our relationship to them in the wake of the extraordinary precautions brought about by COVID-19 and a global pandemic. “Looking at some of our old favourites, masterpieces really, I have brought together artists working over centuries apart to express something of the strange experiences brought about by COVID-19,” City of Mount Gambier arts and culture development officer Serena Wong said. “Never have we been so conscious of the places we eat, sleep,
work, learn and socialise, as we sheltered inside our homes, dreaming of the outside world we had taken for granted. I wanted to curate a show that related to how we were all feeling at present or in recent months and to try and capture the tension and rapidly changing relationship between inside and outside spaces that is in some parts universal, but also uniquely of our own backyard.” Featured in this exhibition are recently restored work by Belgian artist, Willem Albract, dating from the late 1800s, early colonial works from the region and other wellknown Australian artists, including indigenous artists from Central Australia. “As we begin to bounce back and venture from our homes, I’m thrilled to be able to display some
So many questions...
of the Riddoch’s Collection for the community to enjoy,” Ms Wong said. The exhibition will be on display until Sunday, October 25. Above - ‘Through the Looking Glass’ (Brian Dunlop, born Sydney 1938 – 2009, oil on canvas) from The Riddoch Collection will be displayed as part of the Inside/Out exhibition.
Health service welcomes medical equipment investment Surgery is ramping up at Portland District Health (PDH) and will be made easier with the purchase of new specialist equipment. PDH has purchased a range of items for use by orthopaedic and plastic surgeons, ensuring these services can be offered locally. Director of Nursing Ros Alexander said PDH had quite a few pieces of older orthopaedic and plastic surgery equipment that needed to be decommissioned. Some specific procedures had been stopped and, in some cases, PDH had been borrowing equipment from South West Healthcare. “We needed to find funds to get new equipment to resume these services and the Board of Management agreed to use money from bequests to purchase the items,” Ms Alexander said. The surgical items cost more than $120,000 and include power tool equipment for orthopaedic and plastic surgery including saws, reamers, wire drivers and all attachments, modular hand pieces and chargers. “The new equipment will improve services to our local community,” Ms Alexander said. “This much-needed new equipment will be fantastic for the orthopaedic and plastic surgeons who will use it regularly.” PDH will return to full surgical capacity in July. Essential and

Ms Alexander said bequests made to PDH helped everyone. “Over the years we have received many
bequests from local people who have been pleased with the services they received and wanted to support their local hospital,” she said. “All that donated money is invested in improving services to local people.”
I read with interest this week of a very interesting police situation. Police pulled over a vehicle in Utah in the United States as they suspected the driver was impaired. The vehicle was driving slowly and weaving in the left lane of the Interstate 15 freeway which made police suspect the driver may be drunk or under the effect of drugs. The trooper put his flashing lights on, and in a good sign the driver chose to pull over to the side of the road. You’ll just have to imagine the law enforcer’s surprise when he discovered that the driver was a five year old. A five year old was driving down the freeway. n case you’re wondering, there was not a drunk parent in the driver’s seat who had quickly swapped places with their son. The kid was in the car completely alone, and had in fact been driving the car. The police officer captured video of the whole incident on his dash camera and to be honest the five year old didn’t look like too bad a driver. He didn’t use his indicator as he changed lanes and pulled over, but that’s no different to half of the drivers you encounter on the road daily. I’m convinced that indicators will go the same way as CD players in cars soon, only being available as an optional extra. The police man actually queried the five year old as to where he learned to drive after pulling him over. I’m assuming it’s because he was so impressed. I always blame too much viewing Play School for anyone who drives poorly in Australia. You watch the presenters making out they’re driving in Play School and compare it to your own driving. Generally when you drive, your hands stay fairly steady on each side of the steering wheel. Not if you’re on Play School though. The message kids get from Play
School is a person rapidly moving their left hand up, right hand down then alternating to right hand up left hand down, over and over again. This five year old had a pretty good idea of how to drive though which is very impressive. Some may be thinking that the parents are to blame for him being out driving a car, but I want to congratulate them on raising a youngster with such wonderful independence. What a little go-getter. Instead of sitting around grizzling about there being nothing to do, go and grab the car keys and do something about it. Be the change you want to see in the world, kids. The story gets better though. The youngster was heading for California. That’s a fair old drive. Not sure if he’d brought his blankie for an afternoon nap but that was going to be a fair effort. This story still gets better. The youngster was out for a drive because he’d had an argument with his mother. Decided he needed some space. Go for a drive to blow off some steam. But we still haven’t hit the piece de resistance of this story. The argument was because his mum wouldn’t buy him a Lamborghini. No wonder he was irritated and decided to drive to California, am I right? She left him with no other option. What sort of parent won’t buy their son a Lambo? That’s borderline child abuse. I’m guessing there weren’t any guns in the house or he could have solved it in the traditional American way. The only problem with his so far immaculate, well thought out plan, was that he only took three dollars with him on his roadtrip. What about if you need some snacks. Or if he wanted a six pack of beer? Obviously the key moral of this story is, how lazy are kids today? Back in our day we would have ridden our bike, not pinched Mum’s SUV. No wonder they’re all obese. He was probably texting and driving too.

LOCAL SPORT Clubs welcome new look 2020 football season The region’s football ovals will see action this winter with the three Limestone Coast based leagues – Mid South East, Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara and Western Border – all in throes of putting together a blueprint for their junior grades to commence later this month, with the interim senior league – the Limestone Coast Football League also to get off the ground. Six clubs have confirmed their place in the combined league, with the final make up, draw and playing conditions set to be unveiled in a week’s time, with the remaining clubs in the region being given one more week to consider their position. South Gambier, North Gambier, East Gambier, Kybybolite, Mundulla and Kalangadoo had registered as definite starters, although there was still some doubt over Kalangadoo, given the senior and junior competitions are set to be segregated in 2020, although the Limestone Coast Football Council and SANFL, who will be administering the new competition, will be looking to try and link in with the junior competitions where possible. The start date for the Limestone Coast Football League is July 18 with the council pushing for a seniors and reserves competition with any thoughts of senior netball well and truly now on the backburner. Council chair Trevor Smart (pictured) said the process to get the interim league up and running had gone relatively smoothly thus far, following last week’s regular meeting of the council, which focussed on the set up of the new league, “We are giving all the clubs across the three leagues another week to decide if they want to be involved,” Smart said. “The funding will come from the clubs and the leagues and we are working on a couple of sponsors as we speak.” Kybybolite Football Club president Jamie Tidy was thrilled his club, that has trained throughout this crisis, once restrictions allowed, would be able to hit the field in 2020. “We have a very, very young team, we’re talking guys 18-23 years of age and that’s kind of the dangerous years for our club and in terms of getting them to look after themselves,” he said. “We see it as really, really important that they have something to do and somewhere to be, to keep themselves healthy, mentally and physically. Footy keeps them fit and it keeps them focussed.” Senior coach Scott Carberry has been the driver of keeping the Kyby Tigers on the field and engaging with his young squad and Tidy puts much of the credit for staying the course and pushing for a 2020 competition on his senior coach. “I can’t speak highly enough of Carbs (Scott Carberry), he’s a hell of a good bloke and he kept looking at the big picture and keeping us on track,” Tidy said. The Kybybolite president admitted it has been a tough time for club officials, wading through the unknown, as well as the tight hygiene protocols and social distancing measures required to be in place and with all this extra red tape coming at a time when many of the committee are at their
busiest in their local businesses. “We know we are lucky in this area to still have our businesses going strong, agriculture is in a good place, but it has put pressure on finding time to work through everything that has been going on and what it means for the club,” Tidy said. “That’s why our coach’s role has been so important.” Kyby has pretty much had a full contingent of players on the track so they will be ready to go at the first bounce on July 18. “It has been a good distraction,” Tidy said, and he is also confident the club will be able to field a senior and reserves line-up, especially is the mooted permit system allows players from non-competing clubs to join a Limestone Coast Football League just for 2020. Kybybolite is one of those clubs hoping the senior and junior draws can dovetail wherever possible to make the day as close to a normal season feel as possible. The Kybybolite Football Club committee has a meeting on July 7 to work through what a day at the football is going to look like in the upcoming Limestone Coast Football League. “We will be looking to keep it as simple as possible, we just want to make it fun,” Tidy said. “I think it will be a welcome distraction – it will be different, it won’t be normal but we want to welcome people to a day of country football hospitality and a bit of sport.” South Gambier’s football demographic is similar to the Tigers – it is quite a young group – and president Wayne Glynn is thrilled his club will be able to provide some on field action for his players, members, sponsors and supporters. “We have a lot of young people who are very keen and the younger ones are motivating the older ones to play,” Glynn said. “And from a club point of view this is the best way to keep a strong link to the club for our players and supporters. It is so important to maintain our relationship with the playing group. You don’t want them having a year out of footy.” Glynn welcomed the chance for his young squad to be able to not just play but test themselves against clubs and players from other leagues. “You can’t buy that opportunity – it is a really excting opportunity.” Glynn also sees the interim league as a glimpse into what any future restructure of football in this region could look like. “This has the potential to be a bridging year,” Glynn said. Glynn was also hoping for a merging of the senior and junior competitions where possible on the four or five home games the Demons might garner in the new league. “We want to get some club atmosphere, get the bar and the barbeque and canteen going and have some sort of social year as well,” he said.
From left - Basketball Mount Gambier board member Dan Collins with a group of Under 12 players; Connor Millhouse in action at the LSEHA headquarters & South Gambier Netball Club A Grade coach Belinda Scanlon - all are looking forward to the facility upgrades made possible by the City of Mount Gambier Community Grant Fund.
Council windfall sparks facility upgrades Mount Gambier’s Icehouse is set for a mini makeover courtesy of a City of Mount Gambier Community Development Fund. The $20,000 windfall will see a number of upgrade projects completed at the city’s basketball stadium, that has been laying dormant during the current health crisis. Board member Dan Collins said a number of long standing maintenance issues were set to be rectified thanks to the unexpected cash injection. The $200,000 Community Development Fund was set up by the City of Mount Gambier to enable community and sporting groups to undertake works at their facilities during closures forced by COVID-19. City of Mount Gambier CEO said the funding stream, which has now been exhausted, provided a quick response to the community to carry out improvement works to community and sporting facilities and as such was an investment in people, the economy and the recovery and enabled this hiatus in community and sporting events to our advantage. The stadium is upgrading its wet areas, fixing damaged windows and upgrading fencing that had also seen better days were all on the to-do list for taking advantage of the $20,000 grant. “It has certainly been a great opportunity to
get all these jobs done,” Dan said. “The jobs have been sitting there for a while and while no one was using the stadium it was a good time to get onto these jobs that so often we don’t get a chance to do. Getting the financing was also important and we are grateful to be able to receive this funding. We have been able to get onto these jobs really quickly with no one there.” The Lower South East Hockey Association also secured a $20,000 grant with the installation of a 14.5 kW grid connect solar system and an upgrade of the public address system at the complex on the wishlist. In keeping with the fund parameters of utilising local trades and products where possible, the hockey association has handed the solar installation to Watersolve Irrigation in conjunction with licenced grid connect solar electrician Kameron Lamb. The solar system componentry was supplied by MM Electrical Mount Gambier and installation of the system will get underway this week. Lower South East Hockey Association facilities
manager Daniel Grosse, who was at the forefront of the grant application, said the grid connect solar system was expected to save the hockey association more than $5000 per annum in electricity costs. The PA system, which will be supplied by Sonic Vision’s Mark Allen, is also up for a major overhaul. “The existing public address system is to be upgraded to include remote microphone as well as speaker upgrades more in line with today’s technology,” Daniel said. “The PA system will be vital for the successful running of the 2020 hockey season allowing more effective

communication to players and spectators in particular to social distancing announcements.” Lower South East Hockey Association president Lochie Nisbett, along with the members of his executive team, were grateful to the City of Mount Gambier for awarding this funding. “In a difficult year in which running a competition is budgeted to run at a loss, it means the facilities do not fall behind when our cashflow is compromised,” Lochie said. “The solar system is a gift that can keep on giving, keeping our costs lower and allowing us to invest elsewhere into hockey in Mount Gambier.” South Gambier Netball Club not only picked up one of those precious $20,000 grants to finance its third court project, as well as a $2910 for heating in the clubrooms, club president Andrew Matheson saying it would make for more cosy and comfortable team and committee meetings. “The clubrooms were constructed in 2012 without heating installed and as netball is a winter sport and heating is required for comfort and wellbeing of players, coaches, families, supporters and committee we were keen to tap into this funding opportunity to rectify that,” Andrew said. “The clubrooms are also made available to other community events, including Generations in Jazz and the Mount Gambier Show Jumping Trials so it is about even more than just our members.” The installation of the reverse cycle split system will be undertaken by HD Refrigeration. “The third court is a project we have been working on for a few months and without a typical 2020 season, fundraising for such a major project was going to be difficult so the City of Mount Gambier grant of $20,000 has been a godsend and we will be getting onto construction of that court sooner rather than later,” Andrew said.

LOCAL SPORT Hockey heads back to the turf this weekend Lower South East Hockey Association officials now they will take a hit in the hip pocket but they are forging ahead with the 2020 season, kicking off on July 3 and planning for a mid to late September grand final. Financial forecasts predict a $7000 loss but the association believes it can ride out these tough times and still get players onto the field and hopefully into their clubrooms. “The executive undertook some financial modelling over the past three weeks to see if the association can alleviate some of the costs of returning to hockey for all our members,” Nisbett said. President Lochie Nisbett said clubs and the association executive had been working overtime to give every opportunity for the season, albeit in a shortened form, to go ahead. “The executive has been sitting down a couple of times a week to catch up and I am sure the clubs have been doing the same thing,” Nisbett said. “And we’ve been meeting with the clubs regularly too, so everyone has been working towards this and now we’re ready to start.” The 2020 season will be missing both
“...we feel we can wear this loss, remain financially strong and support clubs and members...” Naracoorte clubs, who have been unable to muster up sufficient players, and Portland, with the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the opening of the South Australian-Victorian border. Portland will be spending the 2020 season as part of the Warrnambool competition. “It is just for this year, we have every confidence both clubs will return to the association in 2021,” Nisbett said. There will also be no division three competition among the five remining clubs – Redbacks, Cavaliers, Tigers, Strikers & West – but officials are thrilled that the division one and two men’s and women’s competitions and the Under 12 and Under 15 boys and girls competitions are about to fire up. Officials have crafted a 10 round season with two weeks of finals with all games to be played on turf and the association was applying a 20 per cent discount to all clubs for fees associated with training fees, match fees and other typical season expenses. “We feel we can wear this loss, remain financially strong and support clubs and members,” Nisbett said. “The feedback from our clubs was 50/50 on if we should run finals or not so we are developing a modified finals series for all grades – a two week format for division one and two and Under 15 and a lightning round for Under 12.” The association will have signage regarding number limits for each area of the hockey
“...things are changing all the time so we do ask that people try and remain patient...” complex, with each club to appoint a COVIDSafe Officer and until notified otherwise, a ‘get in, get out’ philosophy will apply to both training and playing. “We are going to open the canteen with confectionery and pre-packaged snacks but we are still a bit in limbo about the bar in the clubrooms but we hope we will be able to open it up eventually,” Nisbett said. “Things are changing all the time so we do ask that people try and remain patient and follow any guidelines implemented so we can all play a 2020 season.”
“...it is just for this year, we have every confidence both clubs will return to the association in 2021...”

Soccer continues to fight the good fight to get season underway The Limestone Coast Football Association continues to duck and weave as it looks to navigate its way to a 2020 season start. July 19 has been set down as the opening weekend of matches but there are still some hurdles and uncertainties to overcome before officials can cast the 2020 competition in stone. Blue Lake is battling to come up with a senior side to go with its junior contingent, as required by the association constitution, while the continued uncertainty over the opening of the South AustraliaVictoria border makes the association’s commitment to including Portland an ongoing battle. “At the moment we’ve asked clubs to give us their views regarding allowing Blue Lake to play their junior teams if they can’t get a senior team together but I do know they are working hard and are quite hopeful they will be able to get a senior side together,” association CEO Eric Nieto said. “We feel like we’ve gone backwards with Portland – every time we make progress something sets us back but we are still working towards them being part of the 2020 season.” The best case scenario for the Limestone Coast Football Association is a seven team competition, with the July 18 start date seeing Portland open the season with the bye and officials crossing their fingers that the borders still open on July 20 as previously announced.
