Newcastle Weekly contents

thursday 25 January 2018

This week... From the editor I had the pleasure of being among the first to officially hear about Newcastle Airport's newest direct return flight to Adelaide – a major coup for the city. Airport CEO Dr Peter Cock told of how the South Australian capital had topped many travellers' wish lists for a direct route. Personally, I'd love to fly direct from Newcastle to Perth to visit family, and there's a few international destinations I wouldn't mind bringing a little closer. But, as Dr Cock pointed out, adding a direct service to Adelaide only bumps up the next destination in demand, and so on. These things take time. At the very least, Newcastle is certainly ready to look abroad with the airport's recent international fit-out. Build it and they will come, as they say. This week we're going back to school with a super-cute cover story about five-year-old Harpah Sjaardema and her brothers Harry and Karter (and one on the way!). You'll find this feel-good story on page 14. Plus, don't miss handy back-toschool tips from the NSW Department of Education on page 10, healthy lunchbox ideas on page 21, and back-toschool essentials on pages 26 and 27. However you choose to celebrate, have a safe and happy Australia Day, and relish those lovely long weekend vibes. - Georgia Osland

news Patience helps patients It’s a standard response to mishearing a question. Many people simply reply with a nod and hope for the best. But, in a stressful situation, like a hospital admission, this can be a sign of dementia or delirium in elderly people, and can lead to misdiagnosis. “Nearly one-third of patients admitted to hospital have some form of cognitive impairment,” Maitland Hospital’s clinical nurse consultant, Lyndal Hawke, says. “This is directly related to our ageing population.” In a bid to offer support, Maitland Hospital will relaunch its Dementia and Delirium Training Program. The program was postponed in 2017 due to several factors, including an extreme cold and flu season, trainer availability, and volunteer recruitment. But, thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Maitland Hospital

Foundation, it will resume in midFebruary. Volunteer and community participation coordinator, Kim Simpson, says the program aims to improve patients’ emotional security and provide care to reduce their risk of adverse outcomes. “The course will give volunteers skills and tips on how to ask questions that are nonconfrontational, and interactions with patients on a one-on-one basis,” Ms Simpson says. “The staff may call on a volunteer to assist with meals or help them to walk, play music, or simply sit and listen.” She says the hospital is extremely grateful to the foundation for providing much-needed funds. “They work all year to give us money and we’ve been careful with how we spent it,” she says.

“[Some of] the grant has gone towards weighted blankets, dolls, orientation clocks with the time and date, new signage, iPods and music.” The program, which is open to new and existing volunteers, community members and health

workers, will take place at Kurri Kurri Hospital on 13 February (11am-2pm), 15 February (11am1pm) and 20 February (9am-1pm). Phone 4939 2200 or email kim. simpson@hnehealth.nsw.gov.au for more information. - Ben Murphy

news Savings program supports families doing it tough

Susan and her daughter Alyssa. Photo: Peter Stoop

When her husband, Mark, suffered a stroke and was unable to return to work, Susan* suddenly found it difficult to stay on top of the bills. “Previously, we had a double income: when bills came in, we just paid them,” she told Newcastle Weekly.

“Suddenly we were a singleincome family and we really had to budget. We opened different accounts for different things to make sure everything was accounted for.” One thing that has helped the Lambton family in recent times is the

Saver Plus program, developed by the Brotherhood of St Laurence and ANZ Bank, and delivered locally by The Smith Family. The 10-month program encourages participants to make regular deposits into a savings account and attend financial skills workshops. Upon completion, participants’ savings are matched, dollar-fordollar, up to $500 by ANZ Bank, to ease the financial burden of educational expenses. “We made fortnightly payments, and I never even thought about it,” Susan said. “The program is quite achievable, and it really helps to learn how to manage your finances because you never know what’s around the corner.” At the end of the program, Susan and Mark had saved enough money

NTL

to buy their daughter, Taylah (then in year 8), a laptop for school. Taylah’s older sister, Alyssa, who is studying at the University of Newcastle, was also inspired to take part in the program at the same time. With school about to resume for the year, The Smith Family is encouraging other lower-income families who might benefit from Saver Plus to join the program. To qualify, participants must hold a Centrelink healthcare or pensioner concession card, have a child at school or be attending vocational education themselves, and have regular household income from paid employment.

news The Marching Koalas’ band manager Geoff Lynch in the USA with Pasadena Rose Parade organiser Missy Baiunco-Augustyn.

Band stalwart’s swan song It was the perfect finale for band manager Geoff Lynch. After more than 30 years with The Marching Koalas, his recent trip to the USA’s fabled Pasadena Rose Parade will be the last. Mr Lynch first took part in the traditional New Year celebration in the early 1980s.

“For me, it was where I started with the band, and it’s where I end,” he tells Newcastle Weekly. Over the past three decades, The Marching Koalas’ founding member has performed in front of Princess Diana and the Queen; played on the steps of the Sydney Opera House; and received a Medal of the Order

ORICA TEAM CHALLENGE

Lynch volunteered to help and was appointed assistant director. He has filled many roles since then, including director and treasurer. “During my 35-year involvement [with the band], I have noticed a change in the way young people lead their lives,” he says. “Many now have part-time jobs and, of course, there’s the influence that social media has on everyone. “The pace of life is much faster, but the music has been a catalyst for so many of our 2,000-plus members to follow music as a career.” Now retired, Mr Lynch plans to spend more time with his family and see more of Australia. If you’re interested in joining the band, visit marchingkoalas.org.au or find them on Facebook. - Ben Murphy

of Australia. But perhaps his proudest achievement is helping to mould young people through a “musical and social experience”. “It has been a great pleasure for me to see young people come into the band as shy teenagers and leave with so much confidence and self-esteem because of what the Koalas have been able to provide through friendship and great musical experiences, both locally and overseas,” Mr Lynch says. “Their view of the world definitely changes with visits to other countries and cultures.” The Marching Koalas formed in 1982 after a sister city visit by California-based group Arcadia Apache.

Back-to-school tips Starting kindergarten is a major transitional period for children. The NSW Department of Education has some helpful tips to make the big day run as smoothly as possible: The night before: • Lay out your child’s school uniform; • Make your child’s morning tea and lunch and pop it in the fridge; • Help your child pack their school bag; • Pack a spare pair of underpants, socks and a change of clothes. Let your child know these are there in case they have any accidents. On the day: • Be confident with your child and let them dress themselves as much as possible; • Tie back or plait long hair; • Apply sunscreen and take a hat; • Don’t forget to take photos. Once you’re off and running, it’s important to keep children in a routine. When school finishes each day, your child’s class will gather at a regular place. Make sure your child and their teacher know who will be collecting them each afternoon. Children can get upset

10

if you or someone else picking them up arrives late. Check with their teacher about the best time to arrive in the afternoon and where to stand. Kindergarten children can get very tired at night because they are doing so many new and exciting things. It helps if you keep routines like bath time, meals and reading as regular as possible. Leaving time for your child to play and a good night’s sleep are important.

Newcastle Airport will offer direct return flights from Newcastle to Adelaide from 22 March. The announcement came on Monday, when airport CEO Dr Peter Cock revealed the South Australian capital had been at the top of many travellers’ wish lists for a direct route. The route will be serviced by local regional airline FlyPelican, and will initially operate on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. FlyPelican CEO and co-owner Paul Graham said the airline would look to add a Sunday service soon after flights commenced, depending on demand. Passengers will travel on 80 and 100-seat Fokker jet aircraft, and enjoy in-flight refreshments. Bookings are now open. Visit flypelican.com.au

news Teen on mission to fight poverty

Newcastle’s Gabrielle Guihot with some of the donated shoes.

A Newcastle teenager is doing her bit to create meaningful opportunities for those less fortunate. Gabrielle Guihot, a student at the National College of Dance in Lambton, has launched a drive to collect 25,000 pairs of shoes to help people in developing countries. The 16-year-old’s collection will be delivered to Soles4Souls – a non-profit social enterprise that

has distributed more than 30 million pairs of new and used shoes in 127 countries since 2006. Gabrielle recognised the urgent need for footwear during her travels. “While travelling and competing in the Miss Teen Universe Pageant, I spent a month doing mission work in the Philippines, where many people were without shoes,” she says. “I realised that almost anyone with a wardrobe has a pair of shoes they don’t wear that can be donated to help others.” The Miss Teen Galaxy Australia finalist has donated her time to several charitable causes over the years, but says the Soles4Souls’ mission is particularly important to her. “My mum is a podiatrist, and so I have always understood the importance of good footwear,” she says. “I hope that, through this collection, I’ll be able to help Soles4Souls disrupt the cycle of poverty around the globe.” To help Gabrielle reach her goal, drop off new and used shoes at Steel City Footworx, Carrington.

Slithering into new reptile shows Blackbutt Reserve’s two newest residents will be the centrepiece of reptile shows next month. The olive python siblings, donated by WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, replace those stolen during a night-time break-in last September, which remains under police investigation. They are set to join a mature female central bearded dragon, donated by a private Newcastle reptile keeper; eastern long-necked turtles; and various creepy crawlies during Blackbutt’s muchloved shows. Blackbutt Reserve coordinator Brad West said it was exciting to see the pythons settling into their new home. “They are a beautiful species – they’re a smooth olive colour but their scales have this iridescent sheen that really sets them apart,” he said. The pythons are just over a month old and already measure about 50 centimetres each. Security measures at Blackbutt Reserve have been enhanced to prevent further break-ins, including heavy gauge window grilles, CCTV and a back-to-base alarm system.

Schools’ summer makeovers Some students will return to school after the summer holidays to find updated classrooms and learning facilities. Seven schools throughout the Hunter Region shared in more than $2.6 million in state government maintenance funding during a summer holiday blitz. Schools in Maitland, Cessnock and Newcastle have benefited from roof and floor works, as well as repainting. Parliamentary secretary for the Hunter, Scot MacDonald, said it was a welcome investment in local schools. “Every child deserves to have access to great facilities, wonderful teachers and an excellent education – and that is what we are delivering for school students in the Hunter,” he said. “We are making good use of

the summer break to carry out important projects while students are off enjoying their holidays.” The work is part of the state government’s $747 million school maintenance investment over the next four years, announced as part of the 2017 budget. It is hoped this will reduce every school’s maintenance backlog across the state by December. The schools that have undergone work these holidays include: Merewether Heights Public School ($1,040,556), Merewether Public School ($143,000), Mayfield East Public School ($15,616), New Lambton South Public School (177,070), Cessnock High School ($802,008), Telarah Public School ($152,104) and Woodberry Public School ($342,394).

cover story Following the leader The school bag is packed, the uniforms hemmed, and everything labelled with personalised stickers. Five-year-old Harpah Sjaardema is as ready as she’ll ever be for big school. There’s only one thing left to do: wave to mum and dad and her two younger brothers as she heads off to kindergarten at Edgeworth Public School on Friday 2 February. Harpah is the first of her siblings to start school, with Harry, 3, and Karter, 22 months, to follow in her footsteps. The Edgeworth family is due to welcome a third little boy in May. “She was upset to begin with [when we found out we were having another boy], but now she’s realised she doesn’t have to share a room or her makeup, so she’s pretty happy about that,” mum Morgan tells Newcastle Weekly. Despite the typical sibling rivalry

between a sister and her brothers, Morgan believes both Harry and Karter will feel Harpah’s absence five days a week. “Karter especially will be lost without her for a few weeks,” Morgan says. “She does like to boss [the boys] around but when they’re upset she’s the first to comfort them. She’s a mother hen.” Usually shy around those she doesn’t know, Harpah will be tasked with making new friends at school, but says she’s up to the challenge. “I’m excited to make friends,” she says. “And I’m not going to miss my boys.” Though Morgan will be sad to see her only daughter walk through the school gates, admitting she will probably tear up on her first day, she knows that great things lie ahead for Harpah, and, when the boys

eventually join her at school, she’ll be there for them. “We know lots of people with boys so I’m excited for her to make lots of girlfriends,” she says. “I think it’ll make her an even more caring big sister than she already is.”

Lunch that packs a punch Preparing school lunches just got a whole lot easier. Cancer Council NSW has launched a new website that promises to save you time and money. The Healthy Lunch Box (healthylunchbox.com.au) features simple, tasty recipes and ideas for lunches, healthy snacks and family meals. An interactive lunchbox builder allows parents and their children to plan a healthy lunchbox at home, or on the move with their smartphone or tablet. What’s more, since many schools ask that lunchboxes are nut-free, none of The Healthy Lunch Box’s recipes include nuts. With only 7% of children eating enough vegetables and 22% of children overweight

or obese, adding fruit and vegetables to the lunchbox every day is a simple way to ensure children get the energy and nutrients they need to learn and play. The Healthy Lunch Box website is an initiative of Cancer Council NSW’s flagship nutrition program, Eat It To Beat It, and was developed in partnership with Outrun Cancer.

news A tree-riffic summer project Summer is often a time for DIY projects bubbling away on the backburner. This summer, Rotary Clubs throughout Newcastle are encouraging the community to help them with one of their projects. The clubs are on a mission to curb climate change by planting more trees. Collectively, they aim to have all trees planted by Earth Day on 22 April. You can help by planting a tree in your backyard. Rotary District 9670 governor, Helen Ryan, says Rotary Clubs are doing their bit to help nurture and protect the environment in joining the fight against global warming. “We realise how important trees are in curbing climate change by removing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air,” Mrs Ryan said. “Over the last six months I have been overwhelmed by the response of local Rotarians to the project.

Community care with heart

Rotary District 9670 governor, Helen Ryan, helps plant a tree.

“Rotarians alone have planted hundreds of new trees in our district that will have a positive impact on ensuring we have a sustainable environment for future generations.” The initiative was founded by Rotary International president Ian Riseley, and is supported by Cardiff, Charlestown, Newcastle, Newcastle Enterprise, Newcastle Harbour, Newcastle Sunrise, Wallsend and Waratah Rotary clubs.

Costume Capers/Metro Retro advertising moment

New entry for secondhand superstore Metro Retro started out 22 years ago in a small stall at the Old Lolly Factory in Parry Street, Newcastle.

A

fter 11 years trading there, owner/operator Jennifer Brown outgrew the space and moved the business to Maitland Road, Mayfield. There she combined retro sales with costume hire, after buying the Costume Capers business. During those eight years in Mayfield, Jennifer improved the hire stock and continued with secondhand sales. Two-and-a-half-years ago Costume Capers/Metro Retro moved back to its original digs in the Old Lolly Factory and expanded its range. The shop sells a range of secondhand wares, from women and menswear to vintage jewellery and accessories to collectibles, linen and furniture. And now all hire costumes are only available for sale.

You’ll fi nd thousands of items, priced competitively to other secondhand dealers. In June 2017, the Parry Street building was sold. The new owners have renovated the top floor and transformed it into a sophisticated office hub with a variety of leasing options. So, let it be known that Costume Capers/Metro Retro/the Old Lolly Factory is still in business. With its original façade intact, many locals remember the shopfront from its former glory days as the lolly factory. However, entry to Jennifer's shop is now only via the rear lane of Parry Street, between the big white gates that face King Street. Costume Capers/Metro Retro is open 10am to 5pm Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; 10am to 4pm on Saturdays; and is closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Present this ad to receive a 20% discount on original prices at Costume Capers/ Metro Retro. The same applies for your friends. Valid for multiple purchases in a single transaction. Offer expires 30 June 2018.

Donate clothing wisely Disability service provider House with No Steps is always grateful for the gift of quality, clean, wearable clothes. But the organisation’s Hunter Businesses general manager, John Piper, has issued a timely reminder of the importance of donating properly. The community’s generous contributions over the summer holiday period saw many items left strewn around its clothing bins. “We find the peak months for people to donate clothes are from September through to February,” Mr Piper said. “During these months, we process around 20 tonnes of donated clothes per week in the Hunter.

“We must remind people that clothing bins – and the areas around them – are not rubbish bins. “Any items left outside of bins are treated as contaminated and are, unfortunately, taken to landfill at our expense.” Mr Piper encouraged people to always place donated clothes in plastic bags and check that the bins were not full. There are about 80 House with No Steps clothing bins throughout Newcastle, the Hunter and the ACT. Donated items are passed on to The Smith Family to help young people in need.

sport Parker races towards Games The chance to turn her onceblossoming triathlon career into a paratriathlon has given Lauren Parker a new lease of life. The former Ironman triathlete, who placed second in her age group in the Ironman World Championship in 2015, was left wheelchair-bound after a horrific bike accident last April. During a training session near Raymond Terrace, Parker’s tyres were both punctured, sending her careening into a guard rail while travelling at about 45 kilometres an hour. It left her numb from the waist down, while she also suffered broken ribs, a punctured lung, broken scapula, broken pelvis, and a broken back. Just nine months later, Parker pushed and puffed her hand cycle and racing wheelchair for

28 kilometres around the streets of Melbourne’s St Kilda Beach in her one and only chance to win selection for the 2018 Commonwealth Games. It was the Paratriathlon Continental Championships, held as part of the third race in the Triathlon Victoria 2XU Triathlon Series. Parker finished second behind the Gold Coast’s Sarah Tait and, with two discretionary nominations available, they both seem certain of joining ITU World Champion Emily Tapp in a three-strong Australian team when the paratriathlon makes its Commonwealth Games debut. “I’ve only been on the racing chair for six weeks and the hand cycle, [so] to be able to complete today’s race in an OK time, I’m really happy,” Parker said.

Jets knackered by Wellington

Newcastle’s Lauren Parker. Photo: Delly Carr

“I am back doing what I love and that’s racing and I’m excited to be back so soon after my accident; it’s hard to believe, I can’t describe it. “With regards to the Commonwealth Games, I’m hoping it all works out and I do qualify; it would be really exciting if I did with lots of hard work between now and then.” The Games will be held on the Gold Coast from 4 to 15 April.

A weak defence and communication issues grounded the Newcastle Jets’ performance on Saturday, with the team losing 3-2 to Wellington. However, the entire game was marred by a shocking incident where Marco Rossi performed an excruciating “squirrel grip” on Jets utility Jason Hoffman. To add insult to injury, the referee failed to card Rossi. Spectators took to social media to voice their outrage, demanding an explanation as to why Rossi was not sent off the field. The Jets remain ranked second on the A-League ladder on 33 points, and will play Melbourne City FC today (Thursday 25 January) at AAMI Park.

time out Scholarship honours arts lover’s memory Maitland Regional Art Gallery is again calling for entries in the Brenda Clouten Memorial Travelling Scholarships for Young Achievers in Visual Arts. Two scholarships, with a total prize pool of $8,000, are on offer for young people (30 years or under) who are studying or who have recently graduated from a visual arts program at a tertiary institution in the Lower Hunter. The $5,000 winner’s award and $3,000 runnerup scholarship enable the recipients to undertake a program of professional development in an international context. Last year’s winner, Dale Collier, is currently in Canada, exploring the international art scene. Now in its 13th year, the scholarship is named after former Maitland resident Brenda Clouten, who passed away from breast cancer in 2004, at age 60. Brenda derived a lot of pleasure from the arts; she loved the ballet, musicals, theatre and all things arty. Submissions close on 8 June, with the winners announced on 8 September. Visit mrag.org.au/brenda-clouten-2018

Art prize draws them in The number of Hunter entries in the third biennial Laman Street Art Prize has far exceeded those submitted in 2014 and 2016. The 2018 successful works adorn the walls of Hamilton’s Acrux Art Gallery from today (Thursday 25 January) until Sunday 11 February. There are four prizes up for grabs: two best of show and one emerging artist, all announced at the exhibition opening this Sunday 27 January, plus one people’s choice award, presented at the end of the show. This year’s judge is Marte Newcombe from Castlemaine, Victoria, who has been a practising artist for more than 30 years. Marte has had numerous exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the USA, where she lived and worked for 24 years – the last eight of which she worked for NASA as a digital artist. Acrux Art Gallery is open 11am to 4pm, Thursday to Saturday, and 11am to 2pm on Sundays.

A barrel of laughs Registrations are now open for Australia’s largest and most prestigious open-mic competition, RAW Comedy.

home Common conundrums

Could your kitchen do with a facelift...at less cost?

While gardening is somewhat guided by common sense, nurseries are bombarded with a multitude of questions. Here are the answers to some of the most common: WATERING: Generally, unless the weather is continually hot, indoor plants need a good drink each week. Fleshy-stemmed varieties like Zanzibar Gem require very little. Container-grown plants outside, in the summer, need a daily drink, at least – sometimes two on hot days. Help groundgrown plants by applying waterretentive agents and mulches. FERTILISER: Indoor plants respond to Green Flourish, which you can apply weekly. Trees and shrubs will benefit from regular applications of a slow-release fertiliser. Native plants should only be fed with blood and bone. Some plants require acidic soil, others prefer alkaline. PESTS AND DISEASES: The wisest solution is to take a list of products stored in the garage,

plus a sample of the diseased plant – both leaves and stems – in a sealed bag to your local nursery and ask for advice. PRUNING: After flowering is usually safe. Roses should be pruned in July and lightly now. Beware of pruning during heat as new shoots will get burnt. PLANTING: Although spring is a popular time, it can be hot, and diligent watering is needed. I favour autumn for its mild weather.

This week • Prune Bougainvilleas as they finish flowering. • Treat lawns affected by army grub, then apply Seasol to stimulate root growth. • Passionfruit will respond to sulphate of potash.

PICK OF THE WEEK Hunt For The Wilderpeople Friday, SBS, 8.30pm, PG (2016) Defiant young city kid Ricky Baker (Julian Dennison, pictured) is sent to the country to live with his foster aunt Bella and cantankerous foster uncle Hec (Sam Neill). When tragedy strikes, Ricky goes on the run – with Hec in hot pursuit, and a national manhunt is organised to find them. This engaging New Zealand film by director Taika Waititi (Boy) is part road trip comedy and part adventure, with wild boar hunts and the pair’s attempts to survive in the bush.

Legends Of Monkey

Saturday, SBS, 9.30pm, M (2015) This beautiful, moving story tells the tale of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan, pictured), a young Irish immigrant in the 1950s. Lured by the promise of a better life in America, Eilis leaves Ireland and the comfort of her mother’s home for New York City. But what starts as an exciting adventure with a romance soon hits hard spots after she falls for a tough Italian plumber (Emory Cohen). She faces temptation from a man (Domhnall Gleeson) when she returns to her homeland for a visit, and Eilis must choose between two countries.

Sunday, ABC ME, 6pm, PG (2018) Those who are older than 30 might have a feeling of deja vu if they chance across this new Aussie/Kiwi creation. The New Legends Of Monkey is inspired by the kids’ series Monkey, which delighted and confused scores of young ones with its mix of fast-paced fight scenes and fantastical, spiritual themes in the late ’70s and early ’80s. This new incarnation follows teenage girl Tripitaka (Luciane Buchanan, pictured) and a trio of fallen gods on a dangerous journey .

This is a year of spiritual development for Portia, a time when she will be pulling back from the social scene and only associating with those with whom she feels a real connection. Patience is going to be required with her business affairs as nothing will move as quickly as she would like. Emotionally this could be a difficult year. Meeting people with similar life views will be a source of joy and help her to restore inner and outer balance.

ARIES: MAR 21 - APR 20

CANCER: JUN 22 - JUL 22

LIBRA: SEP 24 - OCT 23

CAPRICORN: DEC 22 - JAN 20

This may be a rather testing time on the career front owed to Saturn in Capricorn. It will be harder to make the headway you have had in previous years without a lot of extra effort. January, May and August are your most favourable months career wise.

Your communication style is going to be more open and friendly this year, which will make life much easier. People will be more receptive to your sales pitch and you will be able to negotiate better deals on everyday items. The best months career wise are April, June and December.

With Saturn in your 4th house in 2018, family life will take centre stage. You’ll relish being the tribal leader and will feel content giving loved ones guidance. Planning a major family event will be delightful and children will be insightful. Take advantage of the opportunities that surround you.

Saturn denotes that a serious headdown approach is needed to achieve some of your career goals. Forget about being seen to be too serious; who cares if others think you should be different? You’re on target and that’s what counts.

TAURUS: APR 21 - MAY 21

LEO: JUL 23 - AUG 23

SCORPIO: OCT 24 - NOV 22

This is a fantastic year to improve your relationship with bosses, superiors and authority figures. You may even manage to strike up a good rapport with some of them. This could have further benefits when someone puts in a good word for you with a certain person.

There is going to be a heavy sense of responsibility at work and you may feel unappreciated, however once May strikes everything changes; new business partnerships may emerge or a restructure occurs. May, July and September are your best career months.

Finances continue to take centre stage and your attention to these matters will pay off handsomely. A careful reshuffle of the way you’re banking, saving money or making term payments is the key to growing your nest egg. The best romantic months are February, June and November.

Jupiter in your 10th house indicates there will be several gatherings with colleagues in a social setting this year that will help to advance your career. You can expect 2018 to be quite competitive, but don’t worry because Uranus constructively assists you in easily winning out against any adversaries.

GEMINI: MAY 22 - JUN 21

VIRGO: AUG 24 - SEP 23

SAGITTARIUS: NOV 23 - DEC 21

PISCES: FEB 20 - MAR 20

There could be some hurdles to overcome on the family front, but fortunately this doesn’t last long, so don’t assume that things are worse than they are. Differences of opinions with loved ones could get you all hot under the collar. Try to do your best to stay balanced.

Saturn in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces and indicates romance is favourable for you throughout March, June, July and October. But don’t let your passion blind you to the deeper aspects of the relationship. Be easy on yourself and don’t store up stressful problems for the future.

Saturn in Capricorn indicates that you need to be mindful that not everyone can digest your straightforward opinions, regardless of how honest you feel you are being. It’s nice to have friends, but awkward when choices have to be made. Perhaps avoid taking sides.

Saturn in your 11th house indicates a need for working in a team spirit especially when a new projects gets the thumbs up. In the long run, it will advance your career and make you more respected among your peers. Your best romantic months are April, August and October.

My favourite things TRAVELLING My wife, Lynne, and I love to travel to different parts of the world to experience new cultures and lifestyles, meet interesting people and experience new things.

FAMILY Lynne and I have two daughters, Kathryn and Jaine, who have given us four grandchildren: Alexandra, Sophie, Joseph and Charlotte. We enjoy getting together whenever possible to have fun.

CARS Photo Geoff Lynch

I have always liked cars and enjoyed driving. I have a 1973 Type 3 Volkswagen VW0003, which has been with me for more than 35 years – the envy of enthusiasts.

Geoff Lynch

MUSIC I have a passion for marching band music and the associated field shows the Koalas have produced over the years. It is a source of great satisfaction to learn a new piece, put it to movements and watch the band perform. I love watching the audience’s reaction to our work.

THE MARCHING KOALAS FOUNDATION MEMBER

Geoff is a foundation member of the Hunter Region’s wellknown band, The Marching Koalas. After a two-year stint in the Australian Army, he was posted to a teaching position at Speers Point, where he formed the Hunter’s first primary school concert band in the early 1970s. In 1977, he formed the Caves Beach Concert Band. Then, in 1982, he was involved in the formation of The Marching Koalas, with which he has held the roles of assistant director, director and band manager, before recently retiring from the band after 35 years. Geoff was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for his contribution to music in the Hunter Region. He is proud of his achievement in providing – with the help of many talented people – musical experiences to more than 2,000 young musicians. 50

THE BEACH I have a beachside caravan on the North Coast near Macksville, and enjoy going there with my wife and family to relax through walking, swimming and joining friends of an afternoon.
