When most of us think about philanthropy, we’d be forgiven for thinking it’s only within the realm of the uber rich. However, for the team at Stand Like Stone, they know that philanthropy is alive and well in the Limestone Coast. Thanks to kindness and generosity from everyday philanthropists who’ve established sub funds within the community foundation, eight new projects in Bordertown, Kingston, Lucindale, Mount Gambier and Penola have been supported in the recent small grants round. For the Penola Coonawarra Wellbeing Sub Fund, a grant to the Penola PA & H society to assist the Show update its computer software, helped deliver their philanthropic objectives. Stand Like Stone director and Penola representative Rhett McDonald said the Penola Coonawarra Wellbeing Sub Fund was established to give grants to charitable projects that benefit the greater Penola Coonawarra region. “We were delighted to be able to help the Show Society,” Mr McDonald said.”The sub fund itself is supported by a terrific team of local people who want to make a lasting impact for the benefit of the community. We raise money to grow the fund each year, with the interest earned then granted out to local people and projects.” Grants were also made to a mural project at Mount Gambier High School from the Lorry Humphries Sub Fund,

established to support the arts and trades. The school also received a grant for a Collaborative Learning Centre Community Engagement project which was supported by the Focis on Youth Sub Fund, for projects with educational outcomes focussed on youth. The Naracoorte Lucindale Community Care Network received a grant for a Building Blocks project

to support the migrant community with their English skills. The project was supported by the Naracoorte & Districts Sub Fund which gives to charitable projects benefiting the greater Naracoorte region. The Stand Like Stone Foundation also supported four projects, two in the Tatiara region, for the Bordertown & District Agriculture Museum’s new mezzanine floor and display room, as well a Sewing Room project for the Tatiara Multicultural Group. The Kingston Community School received a grant for its Rethink Waste Project, and a grant was given to support the Mount Gambier Community Christmas Day Lunch. “Stand Like Stone makes it easy for the people to get involved in philanthropic giving.” Mr McDonald said. “Donate to a sub fund that supports a cause you’re passionate about. For the Penola Coonawarra Sub Fund, we just want to contribute to a community that is really worth so much to us and others, which is something anyone can do.” Above - Stand Like Stone Foundation director and Penola Coonawarra Wellbeing Sub Fund member Rhett McDonald (far left) and 2017 Swinging With the Stars winner Amanda Flint, who represented the Penola Coonawarra Wellbeing Sub Fund in the annual competition, (far right) with previous recipients of the sub fund’s finances.


Recycling survey gives you a chance to win

City of Mount Gambier residents will have the chance to win one of four $50 EFTPOS gift cards by participating in a short survey about their waste and recycling habits. The survey results will help to inform an upcoming waste education campaign developed by Paper Moose, an experienced creative agency with expertise in waste education. City of Mount Gambier environmental sustainability officer Aaron Izzard (pictured above) said once developed, the campaign would be aimed at maximising waste reduction, reuse and recycling in Mount Gambier, and minimising the amount of potentially reusable, recyclable and recoverable resources disposed of to landfill. Paper Moose behavioural scientist Paul Leone said the survey results will enable council to gain a clearer understanding of resident’s waste and recycling behaviours and attitudes. “We’ll understand community awareness and engagement rates about various waste services provided by council, assess the community’s understanding of which items they believe should be placed in the various kerbside bins and understand the community’s concern about various waste and environmental issues,” Mr Leone said. “These insights will be used to help guide our strategy as we

build a behaviour change campaign for the council.” The survey is now open and all residents are encouraged to participate. “Whether you are proficient in waste and recycling or unsure of the best ways to dispose of your household waste, we want to hear from you,” Mr Izzard said. “The more information we can gather from the community the more effective Council can be when it comes to reducing waste to landfill which in turn helps the environment and saves unnecessary expenditure.” To participate, visit www. haveyoursaymountgambier.com.au/ wastesurvey Survey is open to City of Mount Gambier residents aged 18 years and over only and closes Monday July 20.

seven new iPads,” Mount Gambier Library Manager Georgina Davison said. “These iPads will be available specifically for over 50 year olds who do not already have access to such equipment.” The project aims to connect family members by teaching them how to utilise messaging apps and free video calls and emails, and will be tailored to suit each individual applicant. The iPads will be loaned out for a six month period, complete with data allowance and training sessions on how to utilise the devices, enabling participants to connect with family and friends. People with little or no experience using an iPad are encouraged to apply. “The first training session will teach the successful applicants how to navigate the device and we will work with them to customise a learning program,” Ms Davison said. To qualify for the loan of an iPad and free data, applicants need to express their interest or interest on behalf of someone they know and meet the following criteria: • Over 50 years of age and live in the City of Mount Gambier • Able to commit to four training sessions at the Mount Gambier Library to learn how to use the iPad • Do not ordinarily have access to an iPad, tablet or other device. “We envisage the program will suit someone who may be self-isolating or have family members living away and hope that it will empower participants to gain the knowledge and confidence to communicate with family online via audio and video calls through various free apps and messaging platforms,” Ms Davison said. To apply, applicants can write to or email Mount Gambier Library on behalf of themselves or someone who would benefit from this program and include a short paragraph explaining how the iPad will be used and who they would connect with if they were one of the seven successful applicants. Applications can be emailed to publiclibrary@mountgambierlibrary. sa.gov.au or mailed to Library Manager, Mount Gambier Library, 6 Watson Terrace, Mount Gambier SA 5290 and close Wednesday, July 24.

“...the aim of Cows Create Careers is to increase the students’ awareness of the diversity of educational pathways and career opportunities in Australia’s dairy industry...”

Dairy career program S DELIVER The long running Cows Create Careers program let nothing stand in its way to promote the dairy industry with the popular program finishing up last week with a virtual online presentation day. As the culmination of the project excited students and teachers from Limestone Coast schools attended the high-energy cloud-based event, to conclude the Cows Create Careers program for 2020 in this region.

Students participated simultaneously in each of their schools in pre-arranged, industrybased games in their classrooms and prizes were announced for the project’s winning teams. The presentation day recognised schools that had completed the project, including Beachport Primary School, Lucindale Area School, St Martin’s Lutheran College, Allendale East Area School, Yahl Primary

School, Millicent High School, Apsley Primary School, Penola High School, Kingston Community School and Naracoorte High School. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Dairy Australia’s popular Cows Create

Careers project was delivered via an online hub during Term Two. The hub offered various curriculum options - ‘Normal’, ‘Reduced’ and ‘Easy to Implement’ - schools chose the option that best suited their requirements. Each school was provided with dairy industry curriculum and ongoing support for years 7-11, at no cost. And while the students did not get the hands-on component this year, Cows Create Careers remained highly engaging through fun industry-based resources. Students took an online journey through Willbrae Farm where they were introduced to two dairy calves, ‘Bright’ and ‘Future’. Over five weeks, students found out how to care for the calves and watch them grow through engaging videos. Students learnt about the environment, technology and machinery used on farm through quirky activities and competitions. As with all Cows Create Careers resources, the online program prioritised student learning and aligns with ACARA curriculum. Sally Roberts, Lead – People at Dairy Australia, said it was encouraging to see secondary students passionate about Cows

Create Careers and Australia’s vibrant dairy industry. “The aim of Cows Create Careers is to increase the students’ awareness of the diversity of educational pathways and career opportunities in Australia’s dairy industry,” Ms Roberst said. “Through the project, students learn about the different skills required in the dairy industry in a fun and hands-on way. It is great to see enthusiastic students getting involved and learning about the industry, while making important connections with their local dairy community. The presentation day is a great way to reward and celebrate the students’ and schools’ dedication to the project.” Cows Create Careers was originally established in 2004 with dairy farmers in the Strzelecki Lions Club in Victoria and nine Gippsland schools. Since 2006 the project has been supported by Dairy Australia, Regional Development Programs, dairy farmers and sponsors. It has now grown to 240 schools across Australia with 13,200 students completing the project in 2019.

“...the project’s passionate volunteers are vital to the continued success of Cows Create Careers...” Ms Roberts said that the project has received strong support from dairy farmers and advocates across Australia. Last year alone 527 volunteers gave 2635 hours of their time across 23 Australian dairying regions. “The project’s passionate volunteers are vital to the continued success of Cows Create Careers,” Ms Roberts said “They speak to the students about their experiences in the industry, they support student career decision making, and they have important links to education and employment sectors.” Locally, the project is funded by DairySA and receives additional support across the State from local companies MaxCare, Dasco, Daviesway, Skellerup and Peach Teats, SA Dairy Industry Fund, La Casa del Formaggio, Laucke Mills, Total Result Ag Consulting, South East Vets, Beston Global Food Company, AgriDairies, Easy Dairy Automation Systems, Victorian Hoofcare Services, Agrimilk Consulting and Polymaster, who have continued to support the project in this region.

In the Garden Deliveries stepped up into Victoria during Covid to service our customers who cant get across into South Australia. We have probably reached the coldest part of winter and certainly a shock to the system after a relatively mild and dry summer. The week of frosts was certainly a wake up call for those who pruned their roses too early and the new shoots were burned off. Winter is, of course, the most popular time to be planting dormant ornamental trees, fruit trees and nut trees, berries and any deciduous varieties we dig out of the paddock and sell in their (dormant ) bare rooted form. Many other plants can be planted in this way too, including bush and standards roses, raspberry canes, strawberry runners, asparagus

By Calum Haygarth Landscape Architect & Horticultural Consultant crowns. Limestone Coast Advanced Trees at Gardenarium and Limestone Coast Roses are the largest growers and suppliers of trees, fruit and nut, and thousands of roses direct from the paddock to you.

look no further. We offer daily delivery services to Portland, Port Fairy, Warrnambool and beyond, right through to Hamilton and Horsham and Ballarat in Victoria, as well as all coastal ports up to Meningie, Naracoorte, Millicent, Robe, Kingston, Penola, Lucindale, Keith and Bordertown, not of course forgetting Mundulla and new links have just been set up for our larger trees to Geelong and the Surf Coast. Over the past month and a half we have been busy packing our orders and distributing our lovely stock around the region and right across Australia. With Covid we have been three times up on our normal online sales across Australia as well as three times plus in our retail outlet in Mount Gambier, so its been rather a hectic times with all staff working beyond flat out to try and process all orders in a timely manner whilst trying to process the 1000s of trees and roses we are bringing in from the paddocks. As the lowest priced rose grower in Australia, you are assured of quality stock and NO over inflated prices. We need to start wrapping up bare root sales in order to prepare or sping, which I think is going to be early this year and possibly in light of Covid resulting in unusual times and people not focussing on their Dormant needs for winter we are being inundated with very late online orders hence stock will run out quickly and why we want you to get your orders in or even better purchase from our retail outlet in Mount Gambier at 167 Bay Road. For those of you in Western Victoria who cant cross the border we have stepped up our deliveries to all towns from Portland, Pt Fairy, Warrnambool and beyond daily and to all other towns including all towns on the way to Hamilton, Apsley, Edenhope right through to Horsham.

Yes, that’s right, across all of our fruit trees from dwarfs, including the 2020 new releases of dwarf apples; Sweet Cheeks and Sundowner – an old favourite now available in dwarf. as well as the new dwarf plum. This plum had the highest level of antioxidants of any plum surpassing Queen garnet that has only been available to commercial growers. Now is your chance to plant this amazing blood plum and reap all of the health benefits, this compliments all of the other older well know plums that are now available in a dwarf form. Two new cherry varieties have also been stepped up to cater for demand. As full sized cherry trees grow so so high and vigorous and have very upright, brittle growth, the birds tend to get the fruit before you do, so add one of these to your orchard and net them easily. Pears have similar growth habits too meaning dwarf is the way to go and include Duchess,

Sensation, Bartlett & Williams trees, that now comes in a much more manageable size,and can even be grown in a pot. We also have our popular ornamental trees have a minimum 25% off including all Flemings Trees and massive savings on Limestone Coast Trees cut leaf London Plane trees without the allergen issues (see facing page). The new releases for 2020 are an amazing narrow growing Ginkgo or Maidenhair tree, know from prehistoric times this naturally upright grower is ideal for narrow spaces along driveways,in courtyards and pots. Its limey green growth gives way in autumn to the buttery yellow leaves synonymous with its larger cousin. Sticking with the the yellow theme and new Australian bred form of the every popular redbud family (well know varieties include Forest Pansy, Avondale etc) but this variety has stunning lime green foliage in spring turning to bright golden (see facing page) and does not burn like other golden forms in the hot Australian sun! It’s a compact tree ideal for small and larger gardens alike. There are huge savings on Silver Birch, ornamental pears, Monster Elms Autumn, Cut Leaf London Plane trees (that do not cause respiratory issues from the leaves) right through to our bush roses, including new releases, weeping roses and standard roses from only $23.95.

Magnolias are bursting in to bloom early this year and we are pleased to release the 2018 new variety Genie which is more compact growing than the popular Black Tulip in rich beetroot shades.

Grumpy old men... I’ve been pondering Donald Trump and his leadership (lack of) recently. I’ve often thought that he is simply a silly man who is a product of a country that we simply don’t really understand. I’ve put some of his poor decision-making down to the culture of individual freedom being more important than care for other people, and capitalism and greed being more important than the health and safety of the whole country. But I’ve come up with a new theory over the last couple of days. Here goes. Donald Trump is a grumpy old man. Donald Trump is 74 years old. Compare that to Barack Obama who was 48 when he became president or JFK who was 44 when elected to

Graeme Cleves Director 0419 806 410

the position. A little more locally, Bob Hawke was a sprightly 54 when he became prime minister. Jacinda Ardern was just a pup of 37 when she became New Zealand prime minister, and most agree she has done quite a nice job in the role. Apart from the age thing, the other thing that helps her not be a grumpy old man is the fact she is a woman which may be worth pondering a bit more frequently. So rather than thinking there is something particular to Trump that explains his frightening presidency, I wonder if the issue is broadly and simply that he’s old and grumpy. Should people over seventy simply not be in positions of political leadership? My theory has always been that you should be winding down when you hit seventy. By all means, don’t simply give up on life. Keep doing things to keep your mind and body active. But maybe running a country is not the ideal position for you anymore. I think it’s a good age to take up smoking, heavy drinking and maybe even illicit substances. By that stage surely it just doesn’t matter anymore. From my observations of 70 year old men over the years, it’s an age where tact no longer seems important. Seventy year old men seem to do and say whatever they want with no consideration of other people. You’re 70 anyway, so what can anyone do to you. They can’t sack you from your job. Seventy year old men don’t really care

Toni Gilmore Sales Representative 0402 356 905

Bianca Taylor Sales Representative 0407 613 346

if anyone is offended by what they say, because realistically they’d rather they didn’t have to see other people anyway. If people choose to avoid spending time with them, that’s a big win. All they want is a bit of peace and quiet. Obviously that’s not an ideal personality trait in a world leader. A world leader already probably has a headset of feeling like they’re pretty important. Combine that with a lack of interest in how other people feel about what you’re saying, throw in a social media application like Twitter, and inevitably you’re going to end up with Donald Trump making racist proclamations about the kung-flu. I do feel that this syndrome is particularly focused on grumpy old men, by the way. You don’t tend to encounter anywhere near as many grumpy old women. Old women are almost the opposite. They miss having their family living with them and want nothing more than people around, be they friends, children, grandchildren, other family members, or Jehovah’s witnesses who happen to knock on the door on a quiet day. Think of your typical old woman. She wants people to visit, and she will use food as a great lure to encourage visitors. Old women are constantly inviting people around for afternoon tea, a meal, a cuppa, so that they get to spend time with them. They live their lives telling family members how they are looking too skinny and need a good home-cooked

Sophie Johnson Property Manager 8725 8037

meal. When they have captive visitors, they’re very keen to accommodate and make people enjoy the experience so they’ll come back again, so they’re much more careful about what they say and do. In all honesty this sort of personality type is probably not ideal for a world leader either. A world leader who just wants to keep everyone happy and not cause any issues, is going to get walked all over. I’ve got a feeling Neville Chamberlain may have actually been an old woman. If you’ve never heard that name, kids, look it up and have a read. In my family, my father is the perfect example of the old man theory. I love my dad, I think he’s wise, I think he’s a wonderful man especially now that he’s retired from the crime business, but I don’t think he’d make a good prime minister. Here’s how I think it would play out. First he’d bring in a new law making not keeping your feet on the mat in cars a criminal offence, punishable by death. Not long after that would be proclamations about never winding the windows down. I’m sure the next thing he’d do would be to build a wall, which would be around his caravan so his grandkids wouldn’t be able to touch it. Then he’d have signs installed across the country saying, “Don’t bloody touch that.� At that point he’d probably disappear into his office and put a do not disturb sign

on his door for the next four years. I think we all know the old time saying of, “Children are to be seen and not heard� was initiated by men. It wouldn’t have just been children if they had their way either. I’m significantly (significantly) younger than 70 but I struggle with energy, patience, tolerance and selfcontrol at times. I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like many (many) years from now when I’m 70. Look out is all I can suggest. So maybe all we need to do with Trump is get his grandchildren to visit a bit more often, buy him a nice new set of slippers and a dressing gown, a couple of nice cricket books, and suggest that if he doesn’t calm his farm they’ll book him into the local retirement home. If you’re a grumpy old man, I’d love to get a grumpy email at robbietansel@ gmail.com I’m guessing I’ll get one from Dad which will probably somehow mention that time in Sydney 30 years ago when we had a blue about putting the annex up on the caravan.

THE VALUE OF A COAT OF PAINT Painting is often named as the best return on investment you can make when it comes to improving the look of your home. Don’t be limited by just painting the walls but also consider a treatment for cupboards and doors. Always speak to a professional first, though, as many jobs may require different treatments and primers to ensure a neat finish.

Despite giving all clubs across the three Limestone Coast Football League some extra time to sign up for the interim Limestone Coast Football League, the one off competition remains with the same six clubs that expressed interest a fortnight ago and the draw, at least for this first two rounds, is now set. “It would have been good to get some more clubs involved but we just couldn’t get them across the line,” Limestone Coast Football Council chair Trevor Smart said. “We did try and work with a few clubs that had showed some interest but in the end, it will be a six team competition. The council, under the banner of the SANFL, will administer the 2020 competition which includes Mundulla, Kybybolite, Kalangadoo, East Gambier, North Gambier and South Gambier. The season kick off remains July 18, as previously reported, and will have eight minor round games and a three week finals series, with teams being asked to field both seniors and reserves. The grand final will be held on September 26. “We are really looking forward to it getting started and thrilled we have teams from across all three leagues, including the reigning premiers in all three leagues,” Smart said. “Some of the clubs are still hunting down extra players to field both senior sides, especially reserves players, but in reality, that is no different to what they often face in a normal season.” A COVID permit system has been put in place so players from non-competing clubs can gain approval to play with another club, despite the official transfer window closing June 30, given the special circumstances of the 2020 season. Those players will then return to their home club for 2021. There is certainly still some juggling required for those compiling the draw and finals series to ensure all clubs gain the benefit of some home games and a chance to welcome spectators and generate some income. The Limestone Coast Football League will also look to piggyback off the junior competitions being played in the three leagues – Mid South East, Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara and Western Border – to marry up home games for the junior and senior teams where possible. “It will be a balancing act to ensure all clubs get the benefits and we will definitely be working closely with the junior program,” Smart said. “We feel those participating clubs will be able to benefit from the lifting of restrictions and be

“...it will be a balancing act to ensure all clubs get the benefits and we will definitely be working closely with the junior program...” Trevor Smart able to accommodate those people wanting to see football played once again”. The Limestone Coast Football League plans on releasing to the clubs a management document and further information relating to the running of the league by the end of this week. There will be a $10 entry charge for spectators with the gate takings headed for the coffers of the host club, while the finals gates will be evenly distributed between the participating clubs, once league running costs are covered. The lone Mid South East club, Kalangadoo, is looking forward to testing itself against unfamiliar clubs from the other two Limestone Coast leagues. “Our senior playing groups were so keen and enthused to be involved – they were just so up and about,” Kalangadoo Football Club president Adam Box said. The club has seen around 35 players on the training track with Box saying they have been committed and enthusiastic right from the start. “We see playing football this season as really important for our players,” Box said. “And we are looking forward to having the opportunity to play alongside our juniors where possible and also for the younger players, who might be just out of senior colts, to have a chance to continue with their football. This is all about keeping our junior players and their families and our senior players and their families connected to the club and each other.” An example of how the connection between junior and senior competition comes as early as round two, the July 25 game, when the Magpies host South Gambier in the Limestone Coast Football League, while it’s juniors will also be in action, taking on Nangwarry. “We want to get back to the feel of a normal day at the footy,” Box said. From a senior football perspective, Kalangadoo, who recruited former Casterton Sandford coach Dylan Ayton, to the top senior job for 2020, is still working through the border issues preventing Ayton and a handful of Victorian based recruits from training and heading over for match days – it is still a case of watch this space.

“...this is all about keeping our junior players and their families and our senior players and their families connected to the club and each other... Adam Box (Kalangadoo Football Club president)

“I try not to think about it too much as it is really out of our hands and we can’t control it,” Box said. “We are lucky that we have a number of quality senior players who are working with Dylan so from that point of view everything is on track.” East Gambier football director Aaron Davis is also thrilled to be assured of some kind of season of football now that the Limestone Coast Football League has been rubber stamped. “We are thrilled to have footy back – just to have some sport being played and keeping the boys in touch with each other, but we are also a business and when you shut up shop, the bills still come in and this will give us a chance to improve things financially for 2020,” Davis said. “The sponsors have stayed with us and everyone has been behind us and we are grateful to have this new look league to play in for this year.”

“...we are absolutely looking forward to being back out at the footy on weekends...” Aaron Davis (East Gambier football director) While numbers were initially just under the 20 mark for training at McDonald Park, since the interim league has been announced, between 30 and 40 players have hit the track and enthusiasm for getting back to footy on the weekends is high. The club also opened its doors a couple of weeks ago for the first time, looking to re-establish the routines of brinks and teas at the club on training and game days. “We are absolutely looking forward to being back out at the footy on weekends,” Davis said. “And our blokes are really looking forward to a bus trip – we have requested to play Mundulla away so it can be a real social day as well.” The football director was eagerly waiting for the July 18 season kick off when the Bulldogs host Kybybolite. “We think it will be a really good day because everyone just wants to get back to the footy,” Davis said.

LOCAL Blueprint finalised for Western Border juniors in 2020 SPORT

A 10 round season culminating in a grand final play off is what lies ahead for junior footballers and netballers in the Western Border Junior Football League and Western Border Netball Association. The two governing bodies have worked closely together and the football and netball seasons will basically run concurrently – the football starting on July 18 and the netball on July 25, with an additional floating round, before both competitions finish up with a top two play off in every grade for the 2020 title. The shortened season, which will also be played without Casterton Sandford, courtesy of border and other Victorian restrictions, will be a stand alone season, with no individual honours, and while premiers will be awarded, they will not be added into the annals of Western Border history. The football season will see a Under 12 competition, with multiple grades, as well as the Under 14, 16 & 18 competitions, while the netball will see competitions in 11 & Under, 13

& Under A and B; 15 & Under A and B and 17 & Under grades. Millicent, East Gambier, South Gambier, North Gambier and West Gambier are the participating clubs in both the football and netball season, which will be known as the Mount Gambier District Community Bank Cup, courtesy of the Bendigo Bank’s ongoing generous sponsorship of Western Border competitions. Western Border Junior Football League president Luke Norman was both relieved and excited to have been able to put together a 2020 season. “Kids were definitely getting cabin fever and socially and for exercise it was really important to be able to provide something for our junior players,” Norman said. “It has also been great to work with everyone together, the Western Border Football League board and the netball to

MT GAMBIER’S HOME OF SPORT.

all achieve a common goal.” Western Border Netball Association president and director of netball Jo Gibbs was also thrilled to finally have a blueprint for a 2020 competition. “Our clubs and their volunteers have worked really hard to keep players engaged and to work hard to get a season up and going despite all the hurdles we have faced,” Gibbs said. “Just as we did with the senior competition, we have worked closely with the football and it is going to be great for the kids to basically get to enjoy a normal day at the footy and netball, despite having no official senior competition.” With the advent of the Limestone Coast Football League, there will be times when the junior program dovetails into the senior fixtures as clubs look to reinvigorate their 2020 season and not just keep their players, volunteers and supporters engaged but also generate some much needed income for the club coffers. “It is just going to be a great day at the footy,” Norman said. “Depending on which ground we are playing at, there will be footy basically from early in the morning, right through until 5pm.” Having crowds is also a bonus with parents and grandparents welcomed back to the sidelines, albeit with physical distancing still enforced. “Junior netball has always been a great family day out with plenty of support on the sidelines for our kids and it is so important that we will still be able to enjoy that this season,” Gibbs said. The Mid South East and Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara junior football and netball officials also have plans afoot and we will outline those new look competitions in next week’s issue of Lifestyle1.
