PRESIDENT'S REFLECTION In 2020, the longstanding Lang Lang Township Committee was dissolved by instruction from the State Government (as part of a statewide approach). At the start of this year, the former members of the Township Committee joined forces with the Lang Lang Business Group, and the group was renamed to reflect their combined forces and wider focus.

Members of the Business Group enjoying the 2020 Christmas Function at Howler Brewery. With Hope & Determination, it will not be much longer before we can celebrate together again with friends and family.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE A MEMBER? As a business or community group member, you first and foremost offer your financial and moral support. Your level of involvement at meetings and on projects is totally up to you! Membership only costs $110 per year. To become a member, please contact us at langlangdbcg@gmail.com or via our Facebook Page!

The last 18 months have been a very difficult time for business owners. During this time, I have been lucky to have met or been in communication with numerous business owners, whom have created new opportunities or have simply remodeled their business to get through this current (temporary) adversity. Their stories are amazing, as is the human spirit, and I look forward to sharing their success stories in our next Annual publication. More than ever during these times it has been important to Shop Local! Doing so enhances our local economy & community. I encourage you to always think LOCAL FIRST & make use of our Members / Advertiser’s services before shopping elsewhere. Our Group has strengthened since joining forces with the former Lang Lang Township Committee, and membership has since grown. Early in 2021, we held many productive meetings, with discussions centered on how we can promote and improve the town, which is always our focus. Covid restrictions have forced us to rethink and create new strategies, and this very first Annual publication by the LLDBCG is one of the results of this, We hope you enjoy the publication, and learn more about the local businesses and groups which are available for you here in Lang Lang. Yours sincerely, Robin Elijah (President)

WILL WE EVER GET A TRUCK BYPASS? Here's what we know about the proposed bypass which aims to take mining trucks out of the town centre.

Map Reference: Lang Lang Township Strategy, Cardinia Shire Council, July 2009.

Earlier in 2021, one of the LLDBCG regular meetings was attended by three representives from Cardinia Shire and, amongst other council related topics, the matter of the proposed truck bypass was discussed. The representatives gave us some insight into what is happening behind the scenes of this long-term proposed project.

Fortunately, the State Government is paying more attention than they have in the past to providing extractive resource operators with the kind of road arterial's they need to operate effectively without burdening nearby residents or townships. Hopefully, a sympathetic State Government will mean that funding will be easier to obtain once the project is at that stage.

They informed us that all the land required for the proposed bypass has now been acquired by Council, so this is no longer a hurdle. They confirmed that the design of the bypass (which can be seen on the above map) has been generally agreed upon but not officially approved yet. This official approval for the design is the next required step needed for the bypass to progress, and this will entail an official review.

Furthermore, the Council informed those at the meeting that the bypass will be unfolded in two stages. The first stage to happen will be the south-west section of the road. Approvals and funding will initially be sought for the first stage only, and then this will aim to be completed before the second stage will begin the approval process. So full completion of the project is still a long way away.

The shire representatives confirmed that the Council is very supportive of the bypass and want to see it go ahead as soon as possible to relieve the township of the burden of mining traffic, but the cost of funding such a huge road project by the Council alone is not viable. Funding has to be obtained from the State Government for the project to go ahead. Furthermore, funding cannot be applied for until the design is approved and finalised, hence why this next step needs to happen first.

In the meantime, the township will still need to live safely in close quarters with the many trucks which operate in the area. While most truck operators drive carefully and slowly through the township, where we have children and elderly residents negotiating busy roads, there is the occassional truck which poses a hazard to safety.

The Truck Bypass will happen in time, but given the huge costs and varying authorities involved, it will not be a quick process.

If you do see any trucks driving recklessly, please report them to the Hoon Hotline on 1800 333 000. Reporting is important as it reinforces the need for the bypass to the authorities, and gives them accurate statistics to act upon. The Lang Lang Annual | 6


ROTARY CLUB OF KOO WEE RUP - LANG LANG INC.

INTERESTED IN JOINING? Meetings are held at 6:30pm every 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month at Lang Lang Bowling Club. The Rotary Club of Kooweerup/Lang Lang was formed in 1973, and has made a significant contribution to the local community over those 48 years. If it is to continue to be a strong and effective contributor to local, national and international causes, new members are required to help refresh and carry on the success of the club. Why join? Rotary develops character and brings out the best in human spirit. To feel valuable and meaningful, human beings need to give back and be of service to others, and Rotary helps bring people together to do this. Joining Rotary will bring you together with other people who also want to give back to their communities in an enjoyable and meaningful way. Given the hectic pace of life these days, it is well understood that everyone has many family and work commitments which keep them busy, but you can take your involvement in Rotary to whatever level you desire. They welcome any level of contribution, and understand that everyone's time is limited in unique ways. Whether you are young or old, male or female, a new comer or a longtime resident, they would love to hear from you! See over page for contact details.

Recent Activities of the club Over the last 18 months the Rotary Club has been heavily impacted by the introduction of Covid-19 restrictions, but they have managed to carry on as well as possible. While they have been forced to cancel most of their annual fundraising events, and learn how to conduct meetings over Zoom, they have still remained very active. In January 2020, before Covid hit, the club held their most successful Show'n'Shine event yet, with the profits donated to the East Gippsland Bushfire Relief. Unfortunately, the 2021 event wasn't able to go ahead due to restrictions. During 2020, when lockdowns first began, the Club put together care packages which were handed to Kooweerup Health


Services for distribution to those in need. While other planned events had to be cancelled, the group has continued working on projects in the background. This includes working with Council to have a horse statue installed in the township and also an RV dump point put in place at the Showgrounds. Both these projects would draw more tourists to the township, which would benefit the local businesses. Hopefully these projects will come to fruition soon. In between lockdowns, the club organised a wood chop, and together with volunteers from the Lang Lang Football Club, they cut and collected wood to sell, and donate to those in need. Other annual projects which have been able to carry on throughout restrictions are the Life Education Van (which visits local schools), and the provision of scholarships to Koo Wee Rup Secondary College. The club is looking forward to restrictions easing so they can resume fundraising with their other annual events, such as the Christmas Carols, the Show'nShine, the Annual Golf Day, and many fundraising BBQ's held at local events.

Smiths Motor Garage (L) and a boarding house. (centre) The garage is Begelholes garage, behind the picket fence was LL's first Police Station. The boarding house, on the corner of Oldbury Street, was built around 1910 by a Boer War veteran, Peter Post. He also served during WW1 and his wife Florence ran the business. The building was demolished in 1967. Railway Coffee Palace, on the corner of Roseberry Street built c. 1900 and lost to fire in the late 1930's. A Coffee Palace provided accommodation to travellers who did not want to stay at a hotel. Alex Hill, a general store on the corner of Westernport Road and Station Street. Now a carpark. Built c. 1898 destroyed by fire in 1904 and Mr. Hill left the district. A new store was built and lasted until the early 1960's. Post Office , On the corner of Cambridge Street, it was the first "stand alone" Post Office, because the telegraph / telephone business was becoming too large to operate part time in other businesses. Operating from c. 1910 until the mid 1980's it is now a private home. A.E. Sparrows, drapery, the location is obvious. Originally built in the early 1900's by Walter Browning as a menswear store, it passed through several hands until purchased by Mr. Sparrow in 1930. The family operated the business through several facelifts and extensions until the late 1980's.

To view more photos and memorabilla from the Historical Society's large collection, pop in to their premises at 1 Whistable Street, Lang Lang. When we are not in lockdown, they are open every Wendesday from 11am to 3pm, and Sundays 1:30pm to 3:30pm.

TIME SPENT AMONGST TREES IS NEVER WASTED TIME." KATRINA MAYER

One of the benefits of being in lockdown is that we have all been forced to explore and appreciate our own backyards much more than we have in the past. And despite being classed as 'metropolitan', we are lucky to live in an undeniably regional area, with lots of green spaces and countryside to explore. In the indigenous Woiwurrung language, 'Lang Lang' translates to 'clump of trees', and we are blessed to still live surrounded by beautiful native trees.

LANG LANG SHOWGROUNDS A space to treasure and be grateful for. When you think of Lang Lang you automatically think of our strong sense of community. We are unique among many small towns, in that Lang Lang has many sporting and interest groups for people to be involved in. But think of how farsighted and generous our ancestors were to ensure this was possible! They could see even then, in the early 1900s, the need for a community greenspace to unite a new town. They donated their land to ensure that space would be available to the community of Lang Lang forever. They wanted an area to conduct “pastoral, agricultural and horticultural shows, sports meetings, gymkhanas, rodeos, horse racing and trotting meetings and various other shows and meetings.” This quote is from the original trust deeds. How fortunate are we as a community to have this wonderful space, right in the middle of our town? Traditionally, the Lang Lang PA&H Society ran a show and a rodeo every year. Last year we were lucky enough, despite covid restrictions, to run our 120th show. The Lang Lang Rodeo is the longest running rodeo in Australia. I can remember as a very young teenager, the highlight of my year was helping to bring the rodeo horses that had arrived weeks earlier from their paddock on Westernport Road, down the road, through the Main Street and into the Showgrounds the day before the rodeo. Imagine doing that now! It takes many, many people to run a successful show or rodeo. I personally know of generations of families who have worked at both these events. I also know of new members of our community who have stepped up to help and have found great satisfaction in being part of such a well-run event. With the moving of the sporting groups to their beautiful new grounds in Caldermeade, the Showgrounds have also moved into a new era. While the Port Phillip Showjumping Club has been a user group for 30 years, bringing competitors from all over the state to their shows and contributing to the local businesses, we have also added some new events to our calendar. The Lang Lang Campdraft has been hugely successful and again has contributed to our local community by bringing competitors from far and wide. The Kennel section of the PA&H ran an Easter show this year as well as their event at our show. This was well attended and competitors congratulated the sub-committee who ran this event on their success during such difficult times. We have also hosted Team Penning and Working Equitation and some events showcasing specific horse breeds. The Showgrounds is also home to the Lang Lang United Soccer Club, which has a large following in our area. We look forward to continuing this relationship into the future. Rotary Club events such as the

19 | The Lang Lang Annual

“The one who plants trees, knowing that he will never sit in their shade, has at least started to understand the meaning of life.” Rabindranath Tagore


Show and Shine and the Carols By Candlelight have also been held at the Showgrounds. We have also had mower racing and a community fundraiser, run by the mower racing group. It’s a great place to hold these large events, with plenty of parking, shady trees and great facilities. Along with all these large events, the LLPAH Society also enjoys seeing parents pushing prams, people walking dogs, kids having a kick of the footy and anyone else who comes down to use the space for their personal recreation. Looking to the future, we have big plans for new events also. We are looking into the viability of running Farmers’ Markets, Horse Gear Sales and Swap Meets. However, all these things require people power. We are a group of very enthusiastic volunteers, but always welcome ideas and help from other townspeople. Any money we raise from running events is put back into maintaining and improving the venue, but remember, this facility will only be there for community use if together we make sure it is viable in the long term!

CARE PACKAGES FOR THE COMMUNITY

It has been a tough time for our local community clubs and organisations. As a way to support recovery and return to community sport and activities our branch team worked together to create our Community Care Kits. These kits were put together with basic cleaning products and resources to assist organisations meet their Covid-19 management requirements. Cleaning products, santiser and masks can come at significant cost and these kits were able to get the clubs started. We thank our partners in the project, Larmax Agribarn & Lang Lang IGA for supporting us in ordering the required stock for the kits. The kits were filled with a variety of items including hand sanitiser, disinfectant, spray bottles, rubbish bags, gloves & paper towels. We were pleased to help 20 of our local community clubs and organisations to prepare for returning to community activities under covid restrictions. This project was made possible by the customers of Community Bank Lang Lang. Without your continued support community projects like this are not possible, so thank you for supporting the Community Bank Lang Lang.
