This week... From the editor One of our dear readers dropped in to see me the other day. Around here, Nita is fondly known for her homemade ginger cream biscuits that she often comes bearing. Suffice to say, they don’t last long. Nita usually compliments me and reminds me that my headshot (above) doesn’t do me justice. I modestly disagree, but I wish more people were as kind and sincere as she. On this particular day, Nita requested a What’s On listing for an upcoming seniors luncheon. As she reached for her pocket diary, a tiny slip of paper fell out. On it was a quote by Christopher Fry: “Life is the most miraculous miracle of all. I want to look at life as if we had just turned a corner and run into it for the first time.” She told me I could keep it. Perhaps it was kismet, but I needed it, that day. It reminded me not to take life so seriously, and to appreciate the little things. That includes meeting a fraction of you in person. At my previous print media job, I worked on the third floor, and rarely tended to reception walk-ins unless I chose to. Such is the benefit of a single-level, open-plan office like ours in Charlestown. It may slow me down at times, but memorable encounters like these remind me that I should, every once in a while. - Georgia Osland

news Grand plans for city icon Newcastle’s iconic post office has a new owner. Awabakal Local Aboriginal Land Council unanimously agreed last week to sell the heritage-listed Hunter Street site to Sydney-based cosmetic surgeon and hotel tycoon Dr Jerry Schwartz for $3.5 million. The land council’s chief executive, Rob Russell, said it had intended to use the former post office as a medical centre after acquiring the building through a successful land claim in 2014. “At the time, the land council wanted a registered training organisation and a health centre in there, but the deterioration of the building by the time we got it was beyond our financial capacity,” he told Newcastle Weekly. “There were conditions on the sale and Dr Jerry Schwartz was wise enough and had enough interest

to agree to our wish list and that culminated in members voting unanimously.” Dr Schwartz proposed to use the ground and first floors of the building as a function centre and “one-stop shop for all things wedding”, while the basement level would serve as an Aboriginal arts and crafts area. He estimated the cost to restore it could be similar to the purchase price. “It’s a great thing for the community and it is my pleasure to be involved in such an exciting project,” Dr Schwartz said. The building has sat dormant since the federal government sold it to Sydney-based property developer Sean Ngu in 2002. The state government then bought it in 2010 for a rumoured $5 million, before the Awabakal land

council took control four years later. Mr Russell said he hoped the community valued its efforts. “We’ve worked, in collaboration with the state government, to make the building safe and secure and remove asbestos – it looks much better than it did 12 months ago,” he said. “We were conscious of our obligations and I hope the rest of the

community sees that we’ve made positive contributions. “We look forward to it becoming a beautiful part of Newcastle again.” The former post office was built from 1900 to 1903 and designed by architect Walter Liberty Vernon. It was advertised for sale in late 2017, sparking interest from 11 bidders. - Ben Murphy

news Wangi Wangi: the town with no doctor A quiet suburb in Lake Macquarie has lost its only doctor. The Wangi Medical Centre closed this month, forcing a community of mostly elderly residents to embark on a trip to either Dora Creek, Toronto or Morisset for medical treatment. Phillip Olsen, a resident of nearby Arcadia Vale, said he moved back to the area after about 50 years away, only to discover the French Road practice would soon shut. “It’s caused concern for the elderly folk who rely on electric scooters to get there,” he said. “I bought a house here because it’s a lovely spot, but it is a bit isolated. “I’m approaching my 75th birthday and I found out that you need to get a medical [examination] to renew your licence each year. “That got me thinking: ‘If I can’t

6

drive, then I’ll be snookered where I am’, so that’s how I discovered the process that [the practice] was closing.” Wangi Medical Centre’s owners, Southlakes Medical Group (SLMG), stated it was unable to find a doctor to keep the practice open. Director Vinh Dao said SLMG had appealed to health minister, Greg Hunt, for “many months” but “felt ignored”. He added politicians believed mechanisms were in place to address such an issue by classifying areas as a District of Workforce Shortage (DWS). The DWS refers to a geographical area where the local population has less access to Medicare-subsidised medical services when compared to the national average. “However, this system in place is unresponsive to local needs,” Mr

Dao told Newcastle Weekly. “It is only when there are serious shortages that the area changes classification and, by then, patients would not have been able to see a doctor. “The DWS classification also covers a large area, so workforce distribution would still be an issue.” Mr Dao argued medical practices needed more support from current policies, claiming the process of where doctors could, or could not, work was “overly complicated”. He said SLMG had grown frustrated of training doctors who demonstrated a long-term commitment to the local area, only to lose them to other locations in need. “We have lost at least three doctors, and some are excellent [ones] that we’ve trained,” he said. “We obviously do not have the resources to continue to do this.

“The people that suffer, ultimately, would be the patients.” Mr Dao said SLMG hoped to reopen the Wangi Medical Centre if its concerns were addressed. The citizens of Wangi and Arcadia Vale will meet on the footpath outside the practice at 3pm today (Thursday 30 August) to discuss the issue. - Ben Murphy


news Musician’s instrumental role in spreading message

Newcastle student Jacob Ridgeway, centre, during the R U OK? Conversation Convoy tour. Photo: Ben Houston Photography

Talented musician Jacob Ridgeway has hit the road to encourage Australians to start life-changing conversations. The University of Newcastle student and R U OK? ambassador signed up for a six-week tour that

8

will clock 14,000 kilometres and visit 25 communities across the country. The Conversation Convoy, which kicked off in Geelong, will stop at Civic Park, Newcastle, from 8.30am until 10am on 7 September. The tour then hits Sydney on 13

September to mark R U OK? Day. It aims to inspire everyone, no matter their location, to invest more time in the people around them. Mr Ridgeway recently featured as a lead vocalist in Canada with the University of Newcastle’s awardwinning chamber choir, Echology. He was inspired to join the R U OK? suicide prevention campaign because of his own journey. “As a community ambassador, I have not been shy about my journey,” he tells Newcastle Weekly. “Depression, PTSD (PostTraumatic Stress Disorder), loss and grief have played massive roles in my journey to music and healing. “I have been directly, and indirectly, affected from suicide in our Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities. “So, I hope that sharing my story will assist others to seek help and

create conversations of R U OK? along the tour and country.” The Conversation Convoy spent this month travelling to Darwin, Katherine, Kununurra, Halls Creek, Fitzroy Crossing, Broome, Mataranka, Tennant Creek, Mount Isa, Longreach, Rockhampton and Hervey Bay. Mr Ridgeway says it’s been an amazing experience to visit urban, rural and remote communities. “We have such a beautiful country with beautiful people,” he says. “The Conversation Convoy has been awesome to exchange stories, feelings and link people with organisations or programs that can give them help in the long-term to heal.” Visit ruok.org.au for more information or to donate. - Ben Murphy


news Pawfect pal celebrates milestone birthday

Road ready

They call her the queen of the complex, and last Friday, they treated her like one. Marilyn Moore and her Cooks Hill neighbours rolled out the carpet to celebrate Misty the Maltese terrier’s much-anticipated 18th birthday. In dog years, Marilyn’s beloved companion is in her eighties. She is deaf and blind, but that didn’t stop her from enjoying some vanilla sponge and dog treats on her special day, surrounded by other residents in the housing complex. Marilyn’s closest neighbour, Margaret Booth, who also has two dogs – Gabby and Daisy – said Marilyn would be lost without Misty. “She does everything for her; she takes [Misty] for walks in a special walker – I call her Lady Jane [former Queen of England],” Margaret said. “They walk around the block or to the park.

Newcastle CBD’s latest connection to the harbour opened last week, with Steel Street extended across the former heavy rail corridor to link Hunter Street with Honeysuckle Drive. It’s part of a $40 million package of city centre intersection upgrades being delivered by Revitalising Newcastle, to ensure the road network integrates with the light rail. Newcastle now has two new northto-south road connections, by way of Worth Place and Steel Street. Revitalising Newcastle program director, Michael Cassel, said the city and the harbour had never been better connected. “The heavy rail corridor separated Newcastle from its harbour for more than 100 years, and, until now, Honeysuckle – the home of some of the city’s largest employers – has been largely isolated from Hunter Street, just 150 metres away,” he said.

“She’d be lost without her, I’m certain of it. “She was so afraid [Misty] wouldn’t make it to her 18th birthday, but here she is, and if you can’t enjoy a bit of cake at that age, then when can you?” Seventy-two-year-old Marilyn

has lived in the Darby Street complex for 38 years. Like Misty, she, too, is deaf, but the pair keep one another company. Marilyn’s only relative who keeps in touch – her cousin Roslyn – was delighted to be a guest at the party. - Georgia Osland

New road signs, traffic lights and road markings Hunter Street between Worth Place and Darby Street is now open to traffic New signs and road markings in this area show how motorists, cyclists and pedestrians should behave around light rail vehicles and tracks. In this area, the road is separated from a tramway with double yellow lines. Don’t drive on the tracks unless to avoid an obstacle, such as a breakdown or emergency vehicle. The speed limit for vehicles in this area is now 40km/h.

news A home built from the heart Build an entire house in less than a month: it’s an arduous, and ambitious, task. This September, as part of International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the Children’s Cancer Institute, McDonald Jones Homes and McCloy Group have teamed up to undertake such an extraordinary challenge. An empty block of land at The Bower estate in Medowie will be transformed into a fully-furnished home to raise funds for vital medical research. The Build for a Cure campaign relies entirely on products donated by suppliers and consists of volunteer tradespeople, who work around-the-clock to produce a very special home built from the heart. Ambassador and host of hit television show The Block, Scott Cam, has been tasked with

overseeing the site’s development, while Newcastle Knights players will also drop in and lend a hand. The campaign kicked off this week, with a concrete pour and framework completed on day one. A house reveal will take place in just over two weeks, on 16 September, and an auction, on 21 October, is then expected to raise upwards of $600,000. All proceeds from the auction will go towards the Children’s Cancer Institute – the only independent medical research institute in Australia that is wholly dedicated to putting an end to childhood cancer. Each year, about 50 families in the Hunter Region have a child diagnosed with cancer, according to the institute. Cancer kills more Australian children than any other disease,

McDonald Jones Homes’ Hunter Region general manager, Matthew Edwards, said the project was only made possible through widespread contributions. “We are always proud to bring the community together in a way that raises much needed funds for the Children’s Cancer Institute and provides a home owner with

news Super dad a pillar of strength Craig Fowles has run out of room on his forearm where his children’s names are tattooed. There’s Jake, his eldest; Madeleine; John; Jessica*; Matthew*; Sarah*; and Cruz*. The seven children range in age from 24 to three. And, although Jake and Maddy have left the nest, there’s no shortage of character and warmth radiating from Craig and his wife Caroline’s unassuming Newcastle home. Their story as a family is perhaps best told by the countless emotive photographs hanging from every inch of wall space. From 2003 to 2005, Craig, Caroline, Jake, Maddy and John lived in Russia, where they helped disadvantaged kids living on the streets. A few years later, around 2010,

14

the family raised money for an orphanage and helped build a school in Malawi, Africa. The work was fulfilling, but it left Craig longing to make an even greater difference. “We thought we should be doing it here [on home soil], too,” he told Newcastle Weekly. So, Craig and Caroline became foster carers through CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning. Caroline said, during the training process, she wasn’t sure they had what it took, but Craig soon changed her mind. “He said to me, ‘Come on, we can do this’,” she said. “I think if it was just me [on my own], life would get done, but it would be boring. Craig brings so much fun, strength and flexibility to parenting.” The couple fostered Jessica from

cover story the day she was born. Then her brother Matthew, sister Sarah, and brother Cruz. All four children call Craig dad and Caroline mum, and get along famously with the couple’s biological children, whom they know and love as their siblings. Craig admits having four young children, all with special needs, can be challenging at times, but equally rewarding. “A lot of people would say, ‘It’s not my problem’, but you can be part of the problem, or you can be part of the solution,” he said. “Yeah, seven kids is a lot. But the more responsibility you have in life, the more meaning.” Craig’s steely resolve has inspired Maddy and her husband Dan to become respite carers, giving foster carers like Craig and Caroline much-needed reprieve.

Can you help make a difference? Emergency, respite, restoration and permanent foster carers are urgently required for children of all ages. Foster carers support children and young people, helping them to meet their full potential by providing them with stability, support and nurturing. Being a foster carer is both challenging and rewarding, but our carers don’t do it alone. CatholicCare partners with our carers, providing them with ongoing support and development opportunities, as well as an allowance to assist them in meeting the needs of children in their care. Where restoration of children with their birth parents is not possible we are assisting carers to adopt or become legal guardians.

Public libraries across the state will be able to expand collections, carry out major upgrades and extend services after a record $60 million investment from the state government. Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter, Scot MacDonald, said it would make a big impact. “For Hunter locals, this is an investment in libraries that will provide for a wide range of community needs, such as better access to collections, children’s services, public IT, connectivity, events, and programs,” he said. The state government claimed every one of NSW’s public libraries, which numbers more than 370, will benefit from the new investment. It stated that, in recognition of the evolving role of libraries as community hubs, Service NSW

kiosks will be placed in more libraries as an ‘opt-in’ basis, and library staff trained, meaning communities have easier access to government services. All councils are reportedly set to receive an increase in annual library subsidy funding of between 40-50% by 2022-23. Under the new investment, the per capita subsidy for public libraries will rise from $1.85 per capita to $2.85 per capita – the first time it has increased in more than 20 years. The announcement came after Maitland and Cessnock councils, among others, joined a Renew Our Libraries campaign, which called for the state government to reverse funding cuts. The initiative was led by the NSW Public Libraries Association and Local Government NSW.

news One complex opens, another nears Thousands poured into Pasterfield Sports Complex on Sunday for its grand opening. The $15 million state-of-the-art facility features one of Lake Macquarie’s biggest sporting fields, a street-style skate park, cricket practice nets, netball courts, a onekilometre shared pathway loop, outdoor fitness equipment, a dedicated parkour area, and a giant playground. It will be the new home ground of the Cardiff Hawks AFL Club and the Cardiff-Boolaroo Cricket Club. Lake Macquarie mayor Kay Fraser said Cameron Park was the ideal location for a facility of this scale. “[Cameron Park] is one of the region’s fastestgrowing suburbs and it is also home to one of our city’s youngest populations,” she said. “These factors made it even more important to provide easily accessible local facilities that promote physical activity, health and wellbeing.” The council stated that, according to Census data, Cameron Park recorded 54% growth in the five years to 2016.

Its median age, at just 32, is also 10 years younger than the Lake Macquarie average, while more than 25% of people living in the suburb are aged 14 and under. Construction on Pasterfield Sports Complex began in 2016, with work funded wholly by local development contributions. The site is named after Geoff Pasterfield, Lake Macquarie’s first mayor following its official declaration as a city in 1984. Meanwhile, Maitland Regional Sportsground Complex’s athletics track has cleared the next hurdle, with the Hunter and Central Coast Joint Planning Panel approving a development application for the facility. The $10.5 million redevelopment at Smyth Field includes the construction of a 400-metre synthetic track and associated field facilities, an amenities building, and spectator seating and parking. Maitland mayor Loretta Baker said it would be a welcome addition to the city’s high-quality sporting options. “Smyth Field was originally set aside for

community use in the 1800s and many iterations of development have followed,” she said. “But these latest works will mean that the city has a facility that will not only benefit our local sportspeople, but also has the potential to attract regional and state events, which is good news for our visitor economy and businesses.”

The state government will spend $3.3 million to upgrade the intersection with traffic lights in response to growing concern and increased traffic created by new developments in the area. “More than 3,700 vehicles

use this busy intersection in the morning and afternoon peaks alone,” Lake Macquarie MP Greg Piper said. Work will also include widening the northern side of Macquarie Street to retain parking for residents and provide a new on-road cycleway. It is expected to take about five months to complete.

sport Club’s family connections It’s a proud moment for any parent. Rodney Cox will take great delight when his son, Jace, runs onto the field for his grand final this weekend. The father-son connection is just one of many within Southern Beaches Rugby Union Club. Rodney has spent the season in fourth grade, while Jace plays in the successful under-11s side. “Jace got me back into [rugby],” Rodney says. “He watches me play and I watch him play… we’re pretty lucky, it’s a great atmosphere when you see your boys, and there are girls as well, running around the club.” Southern Beaches will host the Hunter Junior Rugby Union grand finals at Ernie Calland Field, Gateshead, on Saturday 1 September – less than 24 hours before Father’s Day.

Apart from the Coxs, another father-son duo, Marlon and Maximus Solofuti, also represented the club in first grade and the under10s. Marlon, a Samoan powerhouse who played professional rugby in France for eight years prior to his move to Lake Macquarie, praised the first-class facilities. “When I first walked into this club, I thought, ‘Man, this is crazy,’” he says. “To me, out of all the teams in Newcastle, this is the best facility. “It’s very family-oriented, and there are good juniors here too.” Despite boasting an array of young talent, Marlon says there needs to be better pathways for them to remain in the game. He believes Newcastle must have a side in the Shute Shield – the premier grade club tournament in

NSW Rugby. “You look at a club like Maitland – they’ve got so many juniors,” he says. “But, I guess when they get older, there’s nothing to look forward to so they go to [rugby] league or don’t play at all.” The Hunter Junior Rugby Union grand finals will kick off at 8am. In the under-10s, Maitland Black will face Singleton, while Southern Beaches tackle Merewether Carlton in the under-11s. Nelson Bay then

takes on Singleton in the under12s, Wanderers battle Merewether Carlton in the under-13s, Southern Beaches clash with Merewether Carlton in the under-14s, and Wanderers go up against Nelson Bay in the under-15s. The final two fixtures will see Merewether Carlton face Maitland in the under-16s and Wanderers tackle Nelson Bay in the under-17s.

sport Bolt on deck for trial draw Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt sat in the dugout as his new Central Coast teammates drew 2-all with Newcastle at Maitland No.1 Sportsground on Saturday. The F3 derby trial proved to be a cagey affair in the early stages, but the Mariners hit the lead in the 11th minute from a Jack Clisby free kick. Central Coast’s defence then held firm, repelling several dangerous attempts as the Jets searched for an equaliser. The match started to open up in the latter stages of the first half, with Newcastle’s Jason Hoffman forcing another great save from Mariners goalkeeper Ben Kennedy. The visitors were eventually undone shortly afterwards when a pinpoint cross found its way to an unmarked Hoffman, who made no mistake. The Jets then went in front just past the

Newcastle will tackle St George Illawarra in the club’s final fixture of the season at McDonald Jones Stadium this Saturday 1 September. The match kicks off at 3pm.

It is 250 years since Captain James Cook and his crew left Plymouth on HMB Endeavour on an expedition around the Pacific, during which they mapped New Zealand and the east coast of Australia. In three extraordinary voyages, Cook, and those who sailed with him, travelled ‘further than any other man’. Europeans and peoples of the Pacific met – many for the first time – and neither were the same again. While the influences of Captain Cook are widely known, there is far more to his voyages than many of us realise. Cook and the Pacific offers a wonderful series of snapshots of life, culture and language in the Pacific 250 years ago. Open from 22 September until 10 February 2019. Free.

Paul Russell’s eight-yearold daughter, Evelyn, reads My Storee in her school library at Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College.

Childhood struggle inspires picture book As a child, writing came naturally to Paul Russell, but not so much spelling. His imagination ran wild with stories untold, but when he put pen to paper, he was hampered by dyslexia. That was until he met a teacher, when he was 15 or 16, who believed in him. This teacher reportedly told Russell that, as long as he could write well, he could always enlist the help of someone else to fix his spelling mistakes. Now a children’s author and teacher, Russell’s latest book, My Storee, is exactly that – his story. It follows a young boy whose mind is full of stories, but when he writes them down for his teacher, they come back covered in corrections. Then, a new teacher arrives at the school. Mr Watson tells magical stories and draws wonderful pictures. He doesn’t cover the boy’s stories in red pen, and with this newfound acceptance, the boy

finally feels comfortable to just write. Russell says it gives hope to many children and adults, for whom the world of literature can seem impossible to grasp. “It highlights the importance of ‘the story’, the ideas and the creativity behind literature that are too often taught out of children through an overemphasis on teaching them rules, structure and spelling,” he says. “When I ask myself why I still write, I think about that teacher who saw past [my dyslexia]. “I want other children, who perhaps don’t have a special teacher to guide them, to know that just because they can’t spell, doesn’t mean they can’t write.” Suitable for children aged four to eight, My Storee contains deliberate spelling mistakes, which, Russell admits, was difficult to get past his publisher. “When I first wrote the story, it was

full of spelling mistakes,” he says. “Then I rewrote it with no errors, so my publisher could see both. We ended up with something in the middle.” Beautifully illustrated by West Australian artist Aska, My Storee was released in Australia and New Zealand earlier this month, and will be published in the UK, Canada and the USA in October, to coincide with Dyslexia Awareness Month. The book is available for $24.99 from book stores nationally and online, and is stocked locally at MacLean’s Booksellers in Hamilton, Harry Hartog at Westfield Kotara and Dymocks Charlestown. - Georgia Osland

Extra mile for garden ramble Gardeners have battled “severe elements” along the way, but the often-painstaking challenge is all for a worthy cause. The Maitland Garden Ramble, which donates all proceeds to Vision Australia’s Hunter Division, will celebrate its 35th anniversary next month. The annual event is one of the Maitland Black and White Committee’s major fundraisers. Coordinator Helen Moyle (pictured) says the dry conditions have made it difficult to maintain the eight new entries. “Everyone is suffering with the drought – a lot of people are hand-hosing and trying to be conservative,” she says. “I think people will appreciate the effort that has gone in [to the gardens], considering the drought. “Garden owners have gone that extra mile to showcase not just their yard, but their garden as well, and that’s why we get thousands of people here each year.” This year’s stunning private gardens will feature a diverse range in design, size and plantings. The entries include Hedges Garden, Metford;

Hunter Garden, Hinton; Litwin/McDonald Garden, Hinton; ‘Kalinga’, Duckenfield; Ag Turf, Lorn; Penn Cottage, Bolwarra; Robertson Garden, Bolwarra; and Hart Garden, ‘Lyndhurst’, Lorn. In 2017, the Maitland Garden Ramble raised almost $40,000 for Vision Australia – the nation’s largest provider of services for people with blindness or low vision. Ms Moyle hopes this year’s edition will produce a similar effort. “We are so lucky that we can see this [the gardens] in colour and, with the money we raise, hopefully one day others will see it as well, in some shape or form,” she says. The event will take place from 10am until 4pm on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September. Tickets are available from the Maitland Visitor Information Centre, Heritage Gardens Nursery, Bolwarra Café, Sharpe’s Nursery, Bar Beach, and Poppy’s Nursery, Gateshead, as well as on the day or online. Cost for all gardens is $35 for adults and $25 concession (aged pension only). Visit maitlandbandw.com for more information. - Ben Murphy

Itching for kitsch The next show at Art Systems Wickham features three artists – Jack Barnes, Ellie Kaufmann and Lauren Horwood – who have joined forces to create a group exhibition, titled Easy Living. The trio share common ground in their artmaking, in that they focus on the pop-art movement. Each artist enjoys taking an unconventional approach. The show’s title refers to the

Lauren Horwood

artists’ interests in depicting Australiana and kitsch subjects in everyday, ordinary situations. It originates from the idea of looking at the world through rose-coloured glasses and nostalgia juxtaposed with modern portraiture. Barnes is a painter from the Central Coast, who studied a Diploma of Fine Art from Hunter TAFE, and is currently undertaking a Bachelor of Education in Visual Arts at The University of Newcastle. For Barnes, art is a pivotal part of life; a way to express discourse discovered in everyday living. Kaufmann gained her Diploma of Fine Art from Newcastle Art School

and is now living in Canberra. Her artworks feature fibro and brick-veneer suburbia, exploring her very own ordinary backyard. Horwood is a Sydney-based photographer, who has carved a niche for herself as one of the pin-up scene’s most sought-after portrait photographers. One of her biggest achievements this year was being named a finalist in the Head On Photo Festival Portrait Prize. Easy Living is on display at Art Systems Wickham from tomorrow (Friday 31 August) to Sunday 16 September. Visit art-systems-wickham.com for more information.

the look When nothing to wear is a reality Having “nothing to wear” is a common conundrum among women, but some more so than others. While some may exaggerate slightly, while staring into a wardrobe full of clothes, it’s a harsh reality for disadvantaged women, including those who have fled domestic violence – often with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Enter: Got Your Back Sista’s clothing library. The Hunter charity, headquartered in Tighes Hill, has started a pool of new and quality preloved clothing in all styles and sizes for women to browse and take

what they please, free of charge. Founder Melissa HistonBrowning says, initially, it was intended to operate on a loan system, where women could borrow items to return later (or keep them if they liked), but an overwhelming stream of donations meant they had the capacity to hand out clothing for good. “Some women either can’t afford [new clothes], or they’re being financially controlled by their partners, so this is a practical way to help them,” she tells Newcastle Weekly. “They might be in need of a

corporate outfit for a job interview or their first day on the job, or a nice frock to wear to a social outing. “Either way, it’s great to know that we have the power to do something [about it].” The clothing library is open every Thursday, with a friendly volunteer – Jenny – on hand from about 11am to 1pm to help women assemble outfits and choose something to help them look and feel great. Mrs Histon-Browning says she chose Thursdays because the charity runs two Empowerment Circle workshops that day, meaning more women were passing through HQ.

Consequently, most of the women who’ve been making use of the clothing library so far have been those involved in the workshops, but Mrs Histon-Browning said anyone experiencing hardship was welcome. In addition to the workshops and clothing library, the charity offers self-defence classes, mentoring, and works with local refuges to fit out safe homes for women and children starting over after domestic violence. Anyone wishing to make a clothing donation can enquire by emailing info@gybs.com.au or phoning 4989 2777.

and integrity of your hair before it builds your digestive enzymes or strengthens your immune system? Of course not. It’s going to choose the most important processes first. Your body isn’t worried about how your skin looks, so long as it’s doing its job protecting you from the environment. And that is why it’s so vital to ensure you’re getting the nutrients your body needs to thrive – especially if you want beautiful skin. Here are my five top beauty foods for radiant skin: • Avocado – Rich in nourishing fats, fibre and a range of vitamins and minerals. • Pumpkin seeds – Also called pepitas, pumpkin seeds are one of the richest plant-based sources of zinc. • Broccoli – A member of the brassica family of vegetables, broccoli contains superstar

substances that support liver detoxification DR LIBBY WEAVER pathways and sex hormone metabolism, both of which are critical for clear skin. • Blackcurrants – Blackcurrants are rich in anthocyanins, potent antioxidants that help to protect against oxidative damage and premature ageing. • Wild-caught salmon – Salmon is one of the main dietary sources of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids and is highly nourishing for the skin.

- Georgia Osland

One-off column Beauty is an inside job Skin that truly glows is cultivated from a vast array of physical and emotional processes, including the nutrients you supply your body with, as well as how you feel about life. Everything, even what you are focused on at this very moment, tends to be reflected on the outside and contributes (or not) to your sparkle. When it comes to our radiance, I can’t underplay the power of whole, real food – especially plants. Plants are absolute superstars when it comes to what they provide for our bodies. They are packed full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that fuel our biochemical processes. What you may not realise about nutrients is how your body utilises 38

them. Let’s say you consume a food that contains zinc. This indispensable nutrient is required for sex hormone production, proper immune system function, as well as the maintenance of vision and taste. It is essential for the function of more than 300 enzymes, some of which are necessary for great digestion. It’s also critical for wound healing, contributes to our nail strength, and even nourishes the scalp, helping to maintain the integrity and strength of hair. But here’s the thing: if you’re not getting enough zinc in your diet (which, today, many people are not), your body must choose where it sends the zinc first. Do you think it’s going to choose to send it to maintain the strength

The year that was, was defined in home interiors by millennial pinks, terrazzo tiles and resort-style living. But how is 2018/19 shaping up in comparison?

Attention gardeners: put away your books, turn off the TV, and forget lazing indoors – spring arrives on Saturday. It’s time to pick up the spades, trowels and shovels, and clean off the lawn mower. Remember to eradicate weeds, then, when lawns are actively growing, start fertilising and topdressing. Fertilising is high on the priority list; camellias, azaleas and magnolias can be given attention if pruning is needed, ground-grown camellias can be fed with cow manure, whereas container-grown plants should only be given a slowrelease product. Mulch the root surface of camellias and azaleas with peat moss. Remember, azaleas are shallow-rooted and should be fertilised carefully. If in doubt,

use a water-soluble product. Spring is ideal for liberal feeding – potted plants, trees, shrubs and climbers all need a boost. If you’re not sure what to use, products with a neutral pH are a safe bet. Watch spring flowers for pests; aphids love the new growth on pansies and roses. Control these pests with pyrethrum or malathon. Keep an eye on gardenias this month if spring rains arrive, which can leech iron from the soil. This can easily be identified by masses of yellow leaves. It can also be caused by lack of water as they work hard to produce flowers. Apply liberal doses of cow manure and water chelated iron over the root system.

Those who followed interior advice in 2017 will be happy to know that gold, jewel tones and understated luxury are here to stay. Plus Architecture’s head of interior design, Narelle Cuthbert, says, “Blush and pink tones, complemented by jewel tones such as cobalt blue, emerald green and ruby red, will also be prominent.” “It’s more about understated luxury. Also, a strong trend are desert and sand tones; almost a homage to the terracotta we used to see in the ‘70s and ‘80s, but in more of a matte texture,” she adds. Trevor Richards, from the Hunter’s own Morpeth Gallery, adds our obsession with metallics is starting to wind down. “[Instead], matte and satin fi nishes will take centre stage,” he says. “A more understated version of luxury is set to emerge, with golds and metallics used sparingly in combination with natural timbers, stones and textures.” Avid watchers of Channel Nine’s hit renovation series, The Block, will likely agree with Trevor’s opinion on ‘hero’ items. “We’re defi nitely seeing a move away from shiny objects throughout the home and [there

PICK OF THE WEEK Charlie Wilson’s War

Charlie Wilson’s War

Friday, SBS, 8.30pm, M (2007) Tom Hanks (pictured), Julia Roberts and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman star in this political satire. Director Mike Nichols (Closer) tells the story of the idealistic Texan Wilson (Hanks) who is stirred by news of Afghan rebels fighting the invading Soviets. Conspiring with a right-winger (Roberts) and a rogue CIA operative (Hoffman), Wilson devises a campaign to finagle US financial support for the Afghan mujahidin to help dissolve the Cold War.

Friday

A Beautiful Mind

A Beautiful Mind

Friday, GEM, 8.30pm, M (2001) A beautiful movie about the mind of real-life mathematician John Nash. Russell Crowe’s (pictured) astonishing performance is the centrepiece of this dazzling insight into Nash’s genius and his schizophrenic torture. Masterfully directed by Ron Howard, this unforgettable drama won the Oscar for Best Picture and for Jennifer Connolly’s performance as Nash’s wife Alicia. The fine cast also includes Ed Harris and Paul Bettany.

500 Days Of Summer

Thursday, SBS VLND, 8.35pm, M (2009) Just say “yes” to this whimsical charmer that marries the reverse storytelling structure of Memento with standardissue romantic comedy, with delightful results. Director Marc Webb follows 500 days in the stormy relationship between cynical commitment-phobe Summer (Zooey Deschanel, pictured) and hopeless romantic Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt).

Work and ambition will be important during the year ahead; Beyoncé will feel even more inspired or branch out into something new and highly satisfying. There will be a need for her to follow a strict set of instructions regarding her work, whilst she carefully checks technical details. She might also change her diet and find an interest in cookery and gardening, especially fruits and vegetables. Beyoncé will need to avoid over-analysing everything as this will only cause disharmony with those she loves.

4 September 1981

ARIES: 21 MAR – 20 APR

CANCER: 22 JUNE – 22 JULY

LIBRA: 24 SEPT – 23 OCT

CAPRICORN: 22 DEC – 20 JAN

Your communication skills are going to be put to the test, so be certain to think before you speak. Your sense of humour will easily attract the attention of others when you are out and about, some of whom will be keen to get to know you better.

A free and frank exchange of views is signalled by the conjunction of the planets. This is your chance to raise objections to daft schemes and make suggestions for better strategies. Get matters in these areas cleared out of the way so that you can breathe more easily.

This is a great time to spruce up your home or to arrange a celebration. You may be introduced to some new contacts through a loved one. If you’re single, it’s a great time for romance and a happy one for get together’s with good friends.

The emphasis is on your career life and worldly progress which is going to achieve absolute priority. Should you be considering a new training course, then this is the ideal time for leaping into action. You may find yourself keen to read about religious or philosophical subjects.

LEO: 23 JULY – 23 AUG

With Jupiter in Scorpio until 11 November, a very special relationship will unfold and life will start moving forward in a new direction. An inheritance may come through or money may land in your lap unexpectedly – but you mustn’t take anything for granted where finances are concerned.

AQUARIUS: 21 JAN – 19 FEB

No matter what is happening around you, you need your rest and relaxation. If you are single, you couldn’t have a better time for visiting a club, as this has strong potential to lead to romance. It is certainly a time to focus on enjoying yourself.

VIRGO: 24 AUG – 23 SEPT

SAGITTARIUS: 23 NOV – 21 DEC

PISCES: 20 FEB – 20 MAR

Those of you with children will find them extremely lively and if you need to talk with them about their behaviour, now is the ideal time to sit them down and try to get through to them. This is also a great time to be involved with creative work.

The planets are focusing your energy and time on furthering your social life; you can be certain that friends and acquaintances are going to have a powerful influence on your prospects. The Sun’s harmonious angle gives you optimism and vitality. You will be popular and highly sought after.

Jupiter in Scorpio, your house of adventure, urges you to push ahead with new projects. You are in a self-confident mood and feel that you can tackle anything the world throws your way. There is a lure of the exotic as well; far off places exert a powerful attraction.

TAURUS: 21 APR – 21 MAY Something strange is going on in your family circle at the moment; it may be hard to work out exactly what it is. It may be some time before all this becomes completely clear. There could be a deepening of emotional commitment and the flowering of long-suppressed passion.

GEMINI: 22 MAY – 21 JUNE Don’t take any chances with money, keep to the tried and tested paths and don’t make any decisions that you have not really thought through properly. Legal or official matters may be difficult to handle, try to avoid tackling them until you totally understand what you are dealing with.

SCORPIO: 24 OCT – 22 NOV

The planets are creating positive happenings in connection with legal matters or possibly money coming in from something to do with contracts or documents. It’s time to assess your finances and to focus on refinancing your mortgage, organising your taxation or joint possessions.

My favourite things READING I love reading, whether it’s biographies, autobiographies and human-interest fiction. I am never without a book, most of which come from Belmont Library.

FAMILY

Robin Gordon OAM BELMONT AND DISTRICT RESIDENTS ACTION GROUP PRESIDENT

Robin Gordon is passionate about the Belmont community. Despite not being born and bred there, she settled with her husband, Denis, very early on in their marriage in 1965. As the wife of a busy general medical practitioner, and working in Denis’ and his father’s practice, she came to know many of the families in Belmont. It was, from these early days, that she became part of many community groups, events and occasions that brought the town to life. Robin has spent decades as a volunteer with the Red Cross, Brownies and Guides, the Belmont Golf Club and Belmont Primary School, while the Belmont Chamber of Commerce also served as an active part of her life. She went on to form the Belmont and District Residents Action Group in 2014. One of the group’s biggest issues included the battle to upgrade the Belmont Baths. Robin has received awards for her community service, such as the Paul Harris Rotary award, while she’s also been awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia. Robin modestly regards these honours as team awards because of all the people, including her husband, who have answered her many calls for help over the years. 66

Time with my family, husband Denis, son John, daughter Jane and her husband, Paulo, and grandsons, Oliver, 13, and Sam, 10. We enjoy watching Sam’s soccer team and hearing both boys play their chosen instruments. Oliver plays trumpet and Sam plays the Cello.

GOLF Playing golf and enjoying the game (mostly)! The camaraderie of life on the course and in the golf club keeps bringing me back.

COMMUNITY I love interacting with the community, my old school friends and my nursing colleagues from the Royal Newcastle Hospital and good friends from many walks of life, from many parts of my life, who make life happy, warm, challenging and interesting.

CONCERTS There is a wonderful selection of concerts in Lake Macquarie and Newcastle, such as orchestral concerts, solo instrumentalists and singers, choral concerts, light operas and musicals. We’ve just enjoyed a great feast of concerts as part of the Newcastle Music Festival.
