Message from THE MAYOR Recently you may have seen us at your local shopping centres at one of our Listening Posts. It is really important that we continue to keep you, our community, at the heart of everything we do. Our Listening Posts are just one way we are connecting with you. I’d really like to thank everyone who took the time to share their thoughts and feedback with us. We really value your insights, ideas and experiences in Manningham.

Manningham is a wonderful place to live and work. Our business community is a vital part of our daily lives. We are working to support our local businesses and I encourage you to keep them front of mind when you are looking for goods and services. We are also very excited to be welcoming entrepreneur and author of the 4 Ingredients cookbook series, Kim McCosker to Manningham later this year. Kim will be joining us for our annual Women Inspiring Business Lunch and sharing her story about starting out in business. If you would like to attend, discover more on page 4.

Later this month communities across Australia celebrate Book Week. It doesn’t matter if you are at the very start of your reading journey or a lifelong reader, a good book can bring us so much happiness.

These days you will discover your local library has much more than books to offer. Why not visit this month, you will find classes, events and activities for the whole family. Learn more on page 6. Following on from last month’s information about our 2018/19 Annual Budget, I’d like you to have a look at pages 8 and 9. This map shows you some of the capital works we will be undertaking this financial year. We are continuing to invest in our roads, drainage, community facilities, parks and public open spaces across Manningham.

COVER STORY

Talking Women Inspiring Business with Kim McCosker

Best-selling author of the 4 Ingredients recipe book series Kim McCosker, is this year’s guest speaker at Manningham’s Women Inspiring Business lunch. We asked Kim how she got started and what drives her as one of Australia’s most successful female entrepreneurs. HOW DID YOU GET STARTED? I was a working mum juggling work and running after the kids. I’d get home late and wanted to prepare good food for dinner, but all the recipe books were complicated and required hours of preparation. I wanted inspiration in a recipe book that was uncomplicated and required minimum ingredients – that’s how the 4 Ingredients concept was born.

WHAT CHALLENGES HAVE YOU FACED? In March 2007, four pallet loads of my first cookbook were dropped off at my home. I self-published the book and had no money for a marketing plan, so I turned to Google and upskilled myself. I became the marketer because no one can sell your product better than you. I wrote the press release, sent it out to local radio stations, chased interviews and never gave up. Throughout it all, my family kept me motivated. 4 | MANNINGHAM MATTERS ISSUE 6 2018

WHAT AND WHO INSPIRES YOU? My amazing mum. I grew up on a citrus farm in the small Queensland town of Mundubbera. It had no 24hour supermarkets and she would always make something incredible out of virtually nothing.

WHAT BUSINESS ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE? Never take no for an answer. ‘No’ only means ‘no’ today. As soon as you take an idea that is new or different or contrary to popular belief, everyone will tell you it won’t work. Keep knocking down that door and if you’re single-minded in that purpose and ‘no’ is the answer, then find another way.

Women Inspiring Business Lunch Wednesday, 5 September 12 noon to 2.30pm Kim McCosker will share her amazing story of life so far. She will inspire, encourage and entertain with her simple, hardworking and determined recipe for success. Bookings essential

Books are just the beginning!

Join us to celebrate Book Week (Monday 20 August to Sunday 26 August) and discover how much your local library has to offer all year round. Check out regular children’s programs, special events, competitions, writing groups, literature programs, technology activities, language programs and history activities.

1000 Books Before School The 1000 Books Before School program is about setting good examples for your children and fostering a love of reading that could last a lifetime. Early literacy skills are essential building blocks for lifelong learning. The more books children hear in their early years, the better prepared they are when it comes time for them to learn how to read. Research shows that children who are read to six or seven times a week have a literacy level almost a year ahead of children who are not read to at home. By reading to your child or sharing books with them for around 15 minutes each day, they get a head start, and will have listened to around 1000 books over three years.

HOW 1000 BOOKS WORKS

Step 1: Become a member of your local library and register for the 1000 Books Before School program Step 2: You'll recieve a 1000 books jungle journal to record each book.

Step 3: Mark or colour a footprint in the journal each time you read together with your child. Step 4: Each time you reach a milestone in your journal, bring it to one of our branches for a special sticker.

Step 5: When you get to 1000 books, show us your journal for an extra special prize.

"I was a voracious reader from the time I was 4. I grew up in Darjeeling in India and my Mum would read me poetry, my Grandma sent me Beatrix Potter and Dad read me Alice in Wonderland. It was wonderful.”

Sunday 1.00pm to 4.00pm

"When we moved to Brisbane, I discovered I just loved school. From the age of 6 I knew I was going to be a teacher and I never strayed from that.”

"Now days, my mind is still awake [but] I have the greatest difficulty in reading,” Jean now listens to audio books, delivered every few weeks by Ros, a Whitehorse Manningham Library volunteer. "It’s just wonderful, to be able to sit and listen and not do anything else. I like the Australian voices. I have read some amazing talking books."

Manningham Mayor Cr Andrew Conlon (Right) and Cr Anna Chen (Left) are encouraging the Manningham community to get behind the Commuters Count – Better Bus campaign.

COMMUTERS COUNT – BETTER BUSES Public transport is crucial to the growth and wellbeing of communities. The Eastern Transport Coalition (ETC) strives to give commuters in Melbourne’s east access to good connections, quality interchanges, and frequent and reliable bus services. The ETC’s ‘more and better bus services’ campaign aims to increase funding for, and accelerate the delivery of significant bus improvement projects in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The campaign seeks to improve bus coverage and frequency, provide safer access to bus stops and advocate for a Doncaster Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service. You can help advocate for improved bus services in Melbourne’s east by joining the campaign. Help us make good transport ideas a reality: etc.org.au/buses facebook.com/CommutersCount twitter.com/CommutersCount The Eastern Transport Coalition consists of Melbourne’s seven eastern metropolitan councils. Combined, the ETC represents approximately one million residents and advocates for sustainable and integrated transport services that reduce car dependency. Cr Anna Chen is Manningham's representative at the ETC. etc.org.au

The North East Link (NEL) is a $15.8 billion dollar State Government project, led by the North East Link Authority (NELA). Construction is expected to commence in 2021, with the new road and tunnel expected to be open by 2027. In May, NELA released a business case, confirming that ‘Option A’ (through Bulleen and the Eastern Freeway) as the most feasible route for the proposed North East Link road. An Environment Effects Statement (EES) process is currently underway, and is expected to be finalised in mid-2019. By the end of 2018, Melbourne’s population is expected to top 5 million people. On a daily basis, travel reliability and access to our workplaces, schools and daily errands are impacted by every-increasing traffic congestion. We have been actively working with our community, NELA, our neighbouring Councils and other stakeholders to ensure that our community’s interests and concerns are represented. On 26 June 2018, Council endorsed providing NELA with the ‘North East Link – Preliminary Issues and Opportunities’ report. The report provides 19 recommendations for NELA to consider to ensure that the NEL project delivers an overall net benefit to our community – and to protect and enhance the areas that matter most to our community.

In hearing from our community, the areas that matter most are: •

protecting the environmental character of our suburbs, such as Koonung Creek Linear Park and Yarra River corridor;

protecting access and impact to our parks, sporting grounds and community facilities, particularly around Bulleen Park and the surrounding school districts;

improving local traffic conditions and ensuring the Eastern Freeway remains toll free;

supporting our local business owners who will be impacted, notably around the Bulleen and Manningham Road industrial estate;

enhancing access to good public transport, including to build a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system and future-proof the Doncaster rail link;

minimising traffic noise impacts;

delivering more walking and cycling paths, including across the Yarra River and Bulleen Road;

preserving our local heritage artwork and access to the Heide museum.
