This week... From the editor I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a huge chocaholic. MasterChef Australia Season 10 contestant Reece Hignell gets it – he was caught red-handed eating the props for this week's cover shoot behind the scenes! And what better accompaniment to chocolate than freshly brewed coffee. Admittedly, I drink decaf (I know, what kind of journalist am I?!), but I still enjoy how its richness cuts through the creaminess of the chocolate. I won't pretend to know everything about the craft of coffee or chocolate making – that you can learn at Maitland Aroma festival this weekend. Hignell and his fellow former MasterChef contestant, Steph De Sousa, will be holding demonstrations at Maitland Riverside Carpark on Saturday and Sunday, so you can learn the tricks of the trade. There'll be plenty of other activities to suit all tastes, from interactive coffee art to live music and vintage car displays, plus the obvious, loads of chocolate and coffee – sweet tooths rejoice! Thanks for having us, Maitland. You're every bit a part of NW as Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, and we're proud to serve the Lower Hunter community. And before I leave you: I loved hearing about all the new things everyone learned last week! Me, I mastered the art of cooking zucchini slice.

news Spending, house prices down: Hunter economy weakens The Hunter economy is softening, mirroring a nationwide downturn, key economic indicators reveal. Household spending and house prices are down across the region, while business performance is weakening. Conversely, the labour market remains somewhat stable, with the unemployment rate sitting at 4.7%, just above the state average of 4.4%, and 11,300 jobs added to the region. These figures and more are contained within the Hunter Research Foundation Centre’s June report on Hunter Region Economic Indicators. The centre surveyed 600 businesses and households over a six-month period to gauge the Hunter’s economic performance. On a national scale, there are many factors at play: the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) cut the

cash rate to an historic low of 1% in July, with interest rates dropping further; house prices have corrected in major cities such as Sydney and Melbourne; and the Morrison government was re-elected at the May poll, easing investors’ fears of changes to negative gearing. Growth in Australia’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was softer than expected in the March quarter. As for how all of this will affect our region, Hunter Research Foundation Centre’s lead economist, Dr Anthea Bill, says it’s a case of “wait and see”. “We’ve still got a good labour market,” she says. In fact, business confidence improved slightly in the first half of the year. “This result is consistent with a national spike in business confidence, motivated by the recent

federal election results and Reserve Bank interest rate cuts,” Dr Bill adds. “The business outlook for the region over the next three months, however, weakened further. It is now at its lowest point since mid-2016.” One factor that could be contributing to the downturn is households reducing discretionary

spending on non-essentials, such as shopping, recreation and entertainment. On balance, however, households remain optimistic about the economy. The business sector and exports will prove important locally and nationally in the coming months. - Georgia Osland

news Centre still in limbo after review into ash dam wall

The ‘currently closed’ sign at the entrance to Myuna Bay Sport and Recreation Centre. Photo: Peter Stoop

An independent review into Eraring Power Station’s ash dam wall at Lake Macquarie has been criticised for posing “more questions than it provides answers”. The review was in response to the state government’s controversial

decision to abruptly close the nearby Myuna Bay Sport and Recreation Centre in March over concerns of a major earthquake. The review stated that, from stability analyses completed to date, there was a high probability of the dam wall collapsing if a major earthquake was followed by a heavy rain event. However, while the review noted plausible danger to users of the popular Myuna Bay Sport and Recreation Centre, it also stressed the need for more assessment and analyses to determine the extent of this risk. Geoscience Australia put the odds of a 5.7-magnitude or above earthquake within 100 kilometres of Myuna Bay, near Wangi Wangi, at one-in-5,000-years or more. Lake Macquarie Independent MP Greg Piper expressed his frustration

at the review, arguing it would mean further time in limbo for the centre and its staff. Mr Piper said Sports Minister John Sidoti had already ordered a further risk assessment but added the results would likely not be seen until September. “Unfortunately, the review poses more questions than it provides answers and it fails to determine the actual degree of risk posed to Myuna Bay by a break in Eraring Power Station’s ash dam wall,” he said. “It is clear the risk is incredibly low, and I believe it did not warrant the immediate closure of the centre. “There is a degree of risk in everything we do, but we don’t shut everything down or lock everyone up indoors.” Mr Piper also called on Eraring Power Station’s owners, Origin

Energy, to take accountability. “As frustrating as this latest development is, I’m standing firm on the community’s desire to see Myuna Bay reopened as soon as possible and I’m standing firm on the need for Origin Energy to clean up its own backyard, fix its ash dam wall, and compensate the Myuna Bay centre,” he said. Meanwhile, members of the recently formed Coal-Ash Community Alliance (CCA) hosted a picnic at Myuna Bay rest area on Friday to draw attention to heavy metal pollution and ash waste dumps on the shores of Lake Macquarie. CCA stated it mourned the loss of the Myuna Bay Sport and Recreation Centre but was primarily concerned with the growing ash waste at Eraring and Vales Point. - Ben Murphy

companionship of like-minded neighbours and friends, new social activities and ongoing village and villa maintenance. No more mowing, gardening or building repairs!

With Bunderra Estate land sales selling at $320,000 the Oak Tree Group provides opportunity for seniors to enjoy this desirable location without the price tag.

This opportunity is made even more affordable with Oak Tree’s purchase structure. Commonly used across the majority of retirement villages in Australia, the Deferred Management Fee Structure at Oak Tree allows residents to buy in at a cheaper price, enjoy their retirement lifestyle now, and pay later.

Added to this is Oak Tree’s professionally devised and monitored budget which encapsulates the running costs of the village (including, but not limited to, rates, maintenance fees and building insurances) which are shared out equally to all residents as a general service fee. “The deferred management fee should never be seen as a penalty –in fact it allows more seniors the chance to enjoy retirement living, and all of the benefits, which they

otherwise would probably not be able to afford if we were to charge strata-titled prices,” said Managing Director of Oak Tree, Mr Mark Bindon. “In sharing our living costs across the Village, we are also helping to keep the costs to the individual down and aiding residents to confidently forecast their future expenditure. “The affordability of Oak Tree sees many of our residents enjoying the capital left over from the sale of their home, saving on living expenses and out there enjoying life more – some choosing to travel knowing their home is safe, in good hands and well looked after whilst they are away,” he said. Oak Tree Retirement Villages is owned and operated by a proven Australian owned organisation, employing local staff and supporting local communities. Oak Tree has two other Villages operating in the Hunter Valley with many others scattered across the east coast of Australia.

Determination Date 18 July 2019

Lake Macquarie council has reached an agreement with KPMG over Munibung Road. The council agreed to the terms of an access license to allow construction of the long-awaited Munibung Road extension to start. Dubbed the ‘missing link’, 820 metres of new road and associated footpath and cycle lane will improve connectivity between Boolaroo, Cardiff and Glendale. Construction is expected to provide faster, smoother and safer

travel for motorists by easing traffic congestion. The council has deemed it essential to the development of the North-West Catalyst Area, growing Cardiff and Glendale as a regional economic and lifestyle hub, fostering the development of more than 800 new homes and many more jobs. “The absence of this agreement has been delaying [the project’s] progress,” the council’s deputy CEO Tony Farrell said. “We are now working with tenderers.”

news Friendship flung worldwide A boomerang has spun around the globe by plane, train and bus for eight years before landing back in the Hunter. Newcastle Friendship Force – one of 24 clubs in Australia – presented the boomerang to Gifu, Japan, when its members visited the region in 2011. The native Aboriginal weapon then travelled from club to club, departing Brazil’s most populous city, Sao Paulo, bound for Atlanta in the US state of Georgia, before making its way to Lima, the capital of Peru. The boomerang also visited the Belgium province of Limburg; Solothurn, which lies at the foot of the Weissenstein Jura mountains, in Switzerland; Izmir, Turkey’s thirdlargest city; and the Cape of Good Hope, a rocky headland situated about an hour’s drive from Cape

Town in South Africa. It was then passed to the Dallas, Texas, club. A member of Australia’s Sunshine Coast group just so happened to be travelling with the club at the time and he promised to bring the boomerang back home. Newcastle Friendship Force president Glenda Masterson said it finally returned to the Hunter-based club during a subsequent visit to south-east Queensland. “I was the journey coordinator when Gifu Japan came here,” she said. “We gave it to them, they took it back home, and then they’ve passed it on to the next club that came to them. “There would’ve been dozens sent out, but they don’t always come back – they get lost in transit somewhere. “That’s why we get so excited

when we get one back.” Newcastle Friendship Force is the largest club of its kind in Australia with 100 members. The non-profit organisation has been successfully managed and run by volunteers for more than three decades. One of its major goals is to spread peace, goodwill, friendship, and harmony throughout the world

and within Australia. The club receives and hosts sizeable groups from overseas, developing a seven-day program of activities to showcase Lake Macquarie and the Newcastle region to its visitors. Contact Glenda on gfmasterson@ bigpond.com or Jim on 0432 364 455 for more information. - Ben Murphy

news Mall set for upgrade

Free public Wi-Fi, food trucks, market stalls and new landscaping are all part of a design concept for a $3 million overhaul of Charlestown’s Pearson Street Mall. The Charlestown Innovation Precinct project will also include shade structures and seating, as well as environmental sensors to measure air temperature and quality in the area. Live data from the sensors will be sent to an online interface via Lake Macquarie’s Long-Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN), with

the results to shed light on how the built environment, traffic and other urban factors affect conditions at a local level. Lake Macquarie council’s manager of assets management, Helen Plummer, said the mall would become a testbed for new technology and innovation. “The mall acts as a pedestrian gateway to our city’s largest urban and retail hub,” she said. “This reimagining of the space will capitalise on that significant potential.” Council staff will be at the mall on Thursday 15 August from 11am to 1pm to discuss the draft concept design and take feedback. You can view it online via shape. lakemac.com.au/CHIP until Friday 30 August. Construction is expected to begin in the first half of 2020, pending feedback.

news Local mum benefits from rare seven-way kidney transplant In Jessica McCourt’s eyes, an organ donor is the definition of a hero. The North Lambton student and mother-of-one was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, which reduced her kidney function to 20%, in 2015. Three years later, with it down to just 13%, she received a life-saving kidney as part of a rare seven-way chain. This means that, on the same day in different hospitals around Australia, 14 people underwent surgery – seven kidney donors and seven recipients. One of the donors was Sharon Maskell – a lifelong friend of Jessica’s late mum, Debbie. “Sharon was with me the day I was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease,” Jessica said.

“She put her hand up straight away to be tested and wanted to donate directly to me, but we weren’t compatible, which started the paired kidney exchange. “There are no words to explain how that makes me feel. “It is probably the most selfless thing you can do as a person, to give someone else another chance of life. “I am able to do a lot more than I could before; things like taking my little boy to school aren’t as much of an effort anymore.” The exchange program gives those with kidney failure another option to waiting on the deceased donor list. It matches incompatible kidney donor and recipient pairs with other incompatible pairs. Every three months, a database

containing the information of registered donors and recipients searches for compatible pairs. Two or more simultaneous transplants can occur by exchanging donors, but seven is only believed to have happened a handful of times. Jessica became interested in the science behind the disorder after her diagnosis. She decided to complete an Open Foundation course at the University of Newcastle and then started a

science degree. This had to be postponed while she recovered, but the 27-year-old looked forward to picking up the books again. “Education was, for me, a lifeline,” she said. “Going through this process, I have learnt how much work the kidneys do.” Jessica is also busy planning a wedding to her fiancé, who proposed days after her surgery. - Ben Murphy

sport Australians keep one eye on million-dollar prize Australia will look to bounce back from a last-start loss to Japan when the SailGP team makes its debut in European waters at Cowes, England. The Australians are set to face off against four other national squads – China, France, Great Britain and the USA – during the fourth SailGP event on Sunday 11 and Monday 12 August (AEST). Established in 2018, SailGP is an annual, global sports championship that features bold, cutting-edge technology and awe-inspiring athleticism. Each national team competes in identical supercharged F50 catamarans, which can reach speeds of up to 50 knots, or 100 kilometres, an hour. Australia is represented by the likes of skipper Tom Slingsby; the country’s most successful Ironman,

Ky Hurst; and Lake Macquarie sailor and America’s Cup winner, Kyle Langford. After two impressive wins at the Sydney and San Francisco events, Langford says the Australians are seeking redemption for the defeat in New York. The Japanese, who are skippered by fellow Lake Macquarie sailor Nathan Outteridge, sit one point ahead on the leaderboard. “In New York, the Japanese just outsailed us,” Langford says. “It was a good wake-up call that we’ve got plenty to do to win the series. “We were pretty disappointed with the loss and there was a lot of debriefing to see what we can do better.” Langford believes the squad has

gained valuable knowledge on how to sail the F50 catamarans, which are known as the fastest boats in the world. A huge crash at San Francisco saw teammate Hurst suffer a broken nose and cracked rib. “These boats need to be respected and it can be hard to remember that in the heat of the moment,” Langford says.

“Ultimately, if you get it wrong, it will result in injury or even a fatality. “We made a boat-handling error in San Francisco, which created a lot of downforce and a mountain of water came up and hit Ky.” Victory for the Australians will guarantee their spot in the $1 million winner-takes-all final match race in September at Marseille. - Ben Murphy

Two early goals powered A-League side Central Coast to a 2-0 victory over Maitland in the FFA Cup

A fifth-straight loss has pushed the Newcastle Knights down to 11th on the NRL ladder. Newcastle suffered a heavy 30-6 defeat to in-form Manly at Lottoland last Saturday. The Knights only trailed by two points, 8-6, at half-time but the Sea Eagles started the second

Round of 32 at Maitland No.1 Sportsground last Wednesday. The Mariners looked sharp from the start against their Northern NSW National Premier League opponents and temporarily silenced the crowd of 2,777 when midfielder Michael McGlinchey struck in the sixth and ninth minutes. The Magpies’ defeat means Edgeworth is the lone Northern NSW NPL representative in the Round of 16 after the Eagles downed Darwin Olympic 3-0 at Larrakia Park a week prior. Oliver Smith pounced in the 15th minute to slot home at the second attempt. Aden Gardner and substitute Adam Cawley later joined him on the scoresheet to cap an impressive performance on the road.

Northstars stop skid in Perth The Newcastle Northstars edged closer to an Australian Ice Hockey League (AIHL) finals spot after splitting a double header weekend in Perth. Newcastle suffered its seventh loss of the season – and fifth straight – on Saturday, going down to the Thunder 5-3 at Perth Ice Arena. However, the second-placed Northstars responded well on Sunday and built a 3-1 lead after

the first period thanks to goals from Shane Southwood, Sammy Banga and Richie Tesarik. Bert Malloy and Francis Drolet found the net in the second stanza to keep Newcastle in front, 5-3, and further strikes by Trey Phillips and Tim Stanger wrapped up the win. The Northstars will take on Sydney Ice Dogs at Macquarie Ice Rink this Sunday 11 August from 4.45pm.

Max Mannix Art Exhibition: Eighty Years in the Making. Thursday 15th August to Sunday 18th August 2019 Max celebrated his 80th Birthday this year, and his work just keeps reaching new heights. Whilst his output of paintings has slowed up, he still loves to paint. Many of his paintings reflect the 20 years he spent mustering cattle in outback Queensland, on large stations near Quilpie and Thargomindah. These memories have inspired Max to paint very Australian scenes, themed along bush humour. The first thing Max needs to come up with is the name of the painting. Then the brush begins its colourful dance onto the board on the easel. “They say the strength of a nation can be measured by

the humour of its people. If that’s the case then I reckon Australia would have to be the greatest nation on Earth. The characters I remember most are the larrikins and the jokers, you know, the real characters. They’re the ones who can show you what life is about,” said Max. When you look at Max’s work it reminds you of events that you may have witnessed or experienced in your life. Max is quite a detailed painter as you gaze at his paintings you will see more and more elements included in each work. You will never be able to see everything at one glance or look. The more you study

INN each painting the more you see. You don’t have to have lived in the bush to relate either. We’ve all enjoyed a sack race, soccer game, a day at the races, a session in the pub. Some of us have had run-ins with lawyers, had a gossip in the main street of town and many a mother has adjudicated in the backyard cricket match!

Celebrity chefs to headline Maitland Aroma festival Hunter celebrity chefs Reece Hignell and Steph De Sousa will cook up a storm at the annual Maitland Aroma coffee and chocolate festival this weekend. The former MasterChef Australia contestants are set to host the Flavour Stage, with Steph conducting a cooking demonstration on Saturday 10 August and Reece on Sunday

11 August at Maitland Riverside Carpark. Warners Bay mother-of-four Steph loves to cook with spices and will show festival-goers how to

create Indian and Italian doughnuts, while sweet-tooth pastry chef Reece, who hails from Newcastle, plans to wow the crowd with mirror-glazed mousse. Loyal MasterChef fans will remember Steph from the latest season of the Network Ten series, when she was eliminated in week eight after a pressure test involving a Black Forest Lune Croissant. The previous year, in season 10, Reece made it to the pointy end of the competition before being sent home in week 11. A little known fact is that the pair were both shortlisted for season 10, but only Reece was chosen, leaving Steph to return the following year. Through this process, Reece and Steph became good mates, both equally as proud to represent the Hunter Region. “I would love to get it to the point where MasterChef felt like they couldn’t not put [someone from] Newy on the show,” Steph tells Newcastle Weekly.

“It’s such a great place, it deserves to be put on the map.” Taking time out of their busy schedules – Steph with her imminent Indian meal kit and spices range launch and Reece with his cake brand reveal and local cooking classes – the duo are thrilled to be involved in the Aroma festival. “As someone who loves sweets, it’s right up my alley,” Reece adds. “I’ve been coming to Aroma for years, so something like this is not just a job for me.” The festival will feature an array of delectable chocolates, mouthwatering desserts and some of the best coffee produced by regional coffee roasters. There will also be live music, interactive coffee art, cork coaster making and a pop-up library, while The Levee Shared Zone will come alive with vintage car displays. The festival runs from 10am to 4pm both days. Visit maitlandaroma. com.au for further details. - Georgia Osland

Pride on show A fun, vibrant festival will hit Newcastle for the second year this month. The Newcastle Pride Festival celebrates sexuality and gender diversity in the Hunter Region through a series of events that aim to showcase the city’s inclusiveness, culture, and beauty. It kicked off at the weekend with heat one of Timberlina’s Drag Off, a competition which will run every Sunday in August. Newcastle’s Adam Tracey, aka Tracy Adams, is set to take part in heat two this Sunday 11 August, with one person from each round to qualify for the grand final on Sunday 25 August. “[The festival] is about everyone from the LGBTI community getting together and celebrating who they are,” Tracey says. Apart from Timberlina’s Drag Off, AFL clubs Wallsend West Newcastle Suns and Wyong Lakes Magpies will contest the Pride Cup on Saturday 17 August at Bill Elliott Oval, Maryland. The Pride Round is about celebrating diversity and inclusion in sport and the fight against discrimination and homophobia. The Swans have commissioned a special Pride Jersey for the day, and the rainbow colours will be

prominent with all players and supporters. Newcastle’s all-star drag queen, Timberlina, will then offer a special drag song and dance storytime from 10am on Thursday 22 August at Newcastle library. An exhibition opens at the library on the same day, showcasing the history of LGBTI military service in Australia since World War II. Serving in Silence brings together photographs, objects and documents of current and service personnel to explore how LGBTI Defence members navigated their lives in the Royal Australian Navy, Australian Army, and Royal Australian Air Force. Pride Fair Day, which drew more than 7,000 people last year, then takes place at Newcastle Foreshore Park from 11am to 6pm on Saturday 24 August. The family-friendly event is set to include drag shows, music, comedy, parades, markets, a Doggywood Pooch Parade, and free circus workshops. The festival wraps up with a Not Silenced forum at Newcastle library on Monday 26 August from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. Visit newcastlepride.com.au for more information.


CPAC PROUDLY PRESENTS A PRODUCTION BY CHRISTINE HARRIS AND HIT PRODUCTIONS

On life and the human condition The Very Popular Theatre Company is bringing Endgame to Newcastle’s Civic Playhouse this month. Considered by many critics to be Irish playwright Samuel Beckett’s greatest one-act play, Endgame is the pinnacle of his characteristic philosophical distillation of human behaviour. Hamm (Daniel Stoddart) and Clov (Ben Louttit) painstakingly endure the devastatingly repetitiousness of life in their post-apocalyptic bunker with nothing but each vother, a room full of memories and a threelegged dog to pass the time. To survive, they need each other – or do they? With no shortage of Beckitt’s

unique brand of absurd gloom, Endgame finds the light in misery. In honour of her father, the late Victor Emeljanow, Alexandra Emeljanow picks up the mantle for the next epic chapter in the family’s theatre-making biography. Victor was one of Newcastle’s most-loved and respected directors, teachers and scholars, yet passed away before what was tipped to be his career swansong, fittingly titled Endgame, was released. In his wake, Alexandra leads a cast of Newcastle’s finest. Endgame is showing from Wednesday 21 to Sunday 25 August. Tickets are available through ticketek.com.au

In two places Some people know Leslie Duffin as the owner and director of Finite Gallery at Caves Beach; others know her as a studio artist at The Creator Incubator in Hamilton North. By holding two concurrent solo exhibitions of her paintings, Leslie hopes to demonstrate the link between the two facets of her practice. This link was forged long before The Creator Incubator came into being. Leslie’s first studio after leaving art school in 2012 was adjacent to her current studio in a shed at 50 Clyde Street, Hamilton North. After a chat with the landlord, Leslie was invited to use the old service station at Caves Beach as

Artist Leslie Duffin at The Creator Incubator. Photo: Peter Stoop

a gallery and venue for art classes and workshops, and so Finite Gallery began. Although the former station has been gone for years, Finite Gallery continues to thrive in its new premises across the road from the former site. Leslie spends two days a week in her studio (more when she can) and four-and-a-half days each week in her gallery. Leslie

will be holding concurrent solo exhibitions at Finite Gallery and The Creator Incubator Gallery from 16 to 25 August. The botanical theme of the exhibitions is carried across both spaces. Leslie has painted the plants given as gifts and cuttings from friends – a living link between two places and two people.

Market gets VOCAL about charity Spring is coming, and Raid My Wardrobe is getting VOCAL. The next edition of the quality preloved clothing market, on Sunday 1 September, is the perfect opportunity to add to your spring wardrobe while supporting a worthy cause. Raid My Wardrobe founder Rachel Prest has partnered with Victims of Crime Assistance Victim League NSW (VOCAL) to help raise awareness and funds for the Newcastle-based charity. For 30 years, VOCAL has provided practical assistance, emotional support, court preparation and court support to men, women and children whose

lives have been impacted by crime. The charity has a strong focus on lobbying and activism and has regular input to the state government via written and verbal submissions on issues pertaining to victims’ rights. Ms Prest said she chose to collaborate with VOCAL because it brought awareness about the real difficulties some people, mainly women, faced, and how we could help each other. “Some people fi nd themselves in traumatic circumstances where their physical and mental health are impacted,” she said. “They may feel disempowered, isolated and alone. Some may even

feel embarrassment or deep shame and don’t know where to go for help. “I wanted to make the Raid My Wardrobe community aware of this charity so that if they ever are a victim of crime, or know of someone who is, that they can go somewhere and feel validated and honoured and be able to make informed choices.”

On the day of the market, VOCAL will have a stall selling clothing, shoes and handbags, as well as a donation bucket to raise funds for their valuable programs. This will be in addition to more than 50 stalls packed with highend clothing, shoes, handbags, jewellery and accessories. Drop by Newcastle Basketball Stadium from 10am to 1pm. Entry is $5.

Native plant love

Bathroom makeover

Home renovations continue to grow at a greater rate than new home construction, according to the Housing Industry Association. The bathroom is one of the most popular areas to renovate, so, how can you get the best bang for your buck?

Have you noticed the deciduous magnolias in flower? It is amazing how plants can sense spring is coming − that is because the soil is warming deep beneath the surface. Wattles are also blooming. We don’t plant enough of these in home gardens. They are assets: one, they flower in winter, and two, they grow quickly. My favourite native shrub is Geraldton Wax. These beautiful plants originate from Western Australia and require a well-drained, sunny position. Have you also noticed the tallstemmed Gymea Lily growing in abundance on local bushland? The large, red flower of Doryanthus excelsa (Gymea) is hardy and great for a centrepiece in a large garden surrounded by Kangaroo Paw. My choice for native birds is grevilleas. Honey Gem and Misty Pink are ideal for cutting and screening.

IN THE GARDEN JUDY SHARPE

THIS WEEK • This is an ideal time to transplant deciduous trees that have been planted in the wrong spot. • Once camellias finish flowering, feed with cow manure and mulch the surface with peat moss. • Be careful pruning now – don’t prune springflowering trees and shrubs.

Refresh your bathroom for under $1,000 Highgrove Bathrooms’ Wesley Sinclair shows it can be done. Is it a big job? Whilst some may consider it a laborious and time-consuming area to renovate, you need not fear the bathroom. You can undertake a complete overhaul for less than $1,000 by focusing on changes you can make yourself or jobs that would require very little work from an experienced plumber. Fixtures Taps, showerheads, toilet roll holders, shelving, and even your vanity are easily swapped. Opt for a unified look or theme. You don’t have to undergo a full renovation to implement a theme for your bathroom. Consider matching shower heads, tapware and any metal elements. Brushed brass or a matte black motif will really tie your bathroom together.

Basins and countertops Switching out key pieces such as the bathroom vanity is a sure-fi re way to enhance your bathroom aesthetic. Changing up your basin or even the material of the countertop will drastically change the appearance of your bathroom, without the added price tag of some of the more expensive renovation options, such as repainting, tiling or installing a new shower frame. Mood lighting Transformative for any space, mood lighting is what gives the room a boutique, luxury look, elevating it far beyond a functional room that we wash in. Incorporating mood lighting doesn’t have to be a major project, like revamping your ceiling lights or knocking down the wall to install wall light fi xtures can be. You can still create a memorable bathroom experience by lodging a luxe LED mirror above your vanity.

Big or small, our range of sheds are almost limitless. Talk to us today about purchasing your new shed. 02 4954 7822 Unit 3/68 Munibung Road, Cardiff, NSW, 2285

Layer Cake Sunday, 7MATE, 11pm, MA15+ (2004)

Director Matthew Vaughn bakes up a gleefully gritty gangster yarn of a sophisticated middle-man – known only as XXXX (Daniel Craig, pictured) – who finds himself against society when he falls foul of various underworld types, including an exceedingly ruthless crime kingpin (Michael Gambon). This proved good 007 training for Craig, and he shines as a weirdly affable crime figure.

12pm MOVIE: The Perfect Assistant. (2008,

Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver stunned audiences with its synchronisation of sound and visuals. The film follows a talented young getaway driver, Baby, who finds himself forced to take part in a doomed heist that threatens his life. Baby suffers from tinnitus, and he offsets this by always being plugged into music, meaning his soundtrack is our soundtrack. Starring Ansel Elgort (pictured), Wright proves once again that he has an abundance of style to match the substance of his material.

celebrity birthday

ERIC BANA - 9 August 1968

The Moon is emotional and receptive and controls Eric’s destiny during the year ahead. If he is able to use the Moon’s positive energies, it will be a great year in which he can realign and improve his relationships, particularly with family members. Making a commitment to becoming a better person and bringing his emotions under control will also dominate his thinking. He will be more aware of his psychic abilities during the coming year as he will be experiencing some interesting gut feelings and dreams.

in the stars ARIES 21 MAR – 20 APR

CANCER 22 JUNE – 22 JULY

LIBRA 24 SEPT – 23 OCT

CAPRICORN 22 DEC – 20 JAN

Venus in Leo indicates that a romantic flirtation may have a surprise outcome, but don’t let a small matter or disagreement spoil the chances of this developing into something quite important. This is also a great time to be involved with creative work.

Opportunities for advancement are all around and it seems those who are close to you are also being blessed with the chance to take new pathways and to expand their horizons. You’ll encourage each other to take what fate is offering you and to make the best of it.

An older person may try to interfere with your life in some way, but instead of telling them what to do in no uncertain fashion, perhaps you should let them down a little more lightly. Try explaining that you know what you’re doing, even if you are unsure.

The planets suggest that you’re about to make a bid for freedom and independence and woe betide anyone who gets in your way; they will be trampled underfoot. There really is no limit to how far you can go once you have decided where it is you want to go.

TAURUS 21 APR – 21 MAY

LEO 23 JULY – 23 AUG

SCORPIO 24 OCT – 22 NOV

AQUARIUS 21 JAN – 19 FEB

There could be some great news about your job and you could receive the recognition that you have been working for. Even if that doesn’t apply to you this week, there are signs that there will soon be more money on the way to you via your job.

Happy Birthday Leo! This could be a dynamic and happy month. Although it’s true to say those big grandiose ideas of yours may cause wasteful spending, luckily with your heightened intuition and imagination, you’ll be able to express your ideas and attract support.

The Sun has moved into the earthy sign of Virgo, which for you represents the area of life connected with teamwork, club activities, friends and contacts. The New Moon on 11 August is an ideal time for networking. For those who are freelance workers, it’s an excellent couple of weeks.

The planets are certainly making it a useful time for those of you who are either employed or want to deal with people connected with banks, large institutions, insurance companies, the tax office or officials in general. This is a time for facing the music rather than dodging the issue.

SAGITTARIUS 23 NOV – 21 DEC

The Sun in Virgo is putting you and those closest to you in a sensitive mood. Co-operation with others should be your top priority for the next few weeks. It’s also a time when you should learn how to share, not only your possessions but your thoughts and feelings too.

GEMINI 22 MAY – 21 JUNE You seem to want to take charge of everything and everyone, especially other members of your family. This may be for their own good as you see it, but do try to avoid riding roughshod over their wishes. Life will be quite entertaining with plenty of social activities to anticipate.

VIRGO 24 AUG – 23 SEPT There are times when even you need a rest and this is an ideal time for doing just that. Why don’t you focus on having fun; it is permitted, you know, and it always helps you to return to work feeling refreshed and replenished with even greater ambition.

New Look! New Location! Open for Breakfast and Lunch 7 Days Thursday for Dinner. Now Licensed

With the planets shining on the career sector of your chart, it might be a good idea for you to try to balance your life a little more evenly as you too often become obsessed. Once this happens, you tend to ignore everything else that is going on around you.

My favourite things COMMUNITY RECOGNITION I was presented with a Paul Harris Fellow for my work with ROADwhyz and for giving back to the community. I am a member of Green Hill’s Rotary and strive to assist where and whenever I can. In 2014, I received the Steel Magnolia award for overcoming adversity, lifting myself up and doing for others. That same year I was awarded the Hunter Hero finalist medal for Newcastle, as well as Body & Soul’s Woman of the Year and, in 2017, Maitland Woman of the Year.

SPORT My sport of choice is dragon boating. We have participated in regattas in New Zealand and the Masters Games in Queensland. I have been paddling for about five or so years.

Michelle Davis

PROUD MOMENTS

ROADwhyz CO-FOUNDER

Michelle is a mother-of-three with a passion to help save young lives that are unnecessarily cut short due to poor choices while driving. The Maitland resident lost her two teenage sons in a fatal car crash at Morpeth in 2005. It is for this reason Michelle co-founded the road safety initiative ROADwhyz in 2007. Michelle provides lifesaving presentations, in which she shares encounters of supporting her sons’ mates, as well as the role they played in planning the funeral, among other things. From humble beginnings, ROADwhyz has grown to include members of Highway Patrol, NSW Ambulance, Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, and learner driver instructors. Michelle also co-founded the HOPE Support Group in 2007 for parents who are on a journey no one should endure. She was a TAFE teacher for nine years and currently works as the owner/operator of a local personal training studio. 54

My daughter Georgia’s graduation in 2018 with a sports science degree. This filled me with pride like no other moment. Georgia was 10 when she lost her brothers and became an only child. She has a strength more than anyone would imagine.

FUN MOMENTS When I was turning 50, I wondered how I would cope because my boys would never see that number and I felt it was unfair. My husband, knowing that I am driven by setting goals, suggested I make a list of 50 things to do while I’m 50. Some of these included a life drawing class, ice skating, and, best of all, being a movie extra in Melbourne for a zombie movie.

FUNDRAISING I love fundraising for community, especially my amazing friend who is terminally ill with cancer. She set a goal to raise $50,000 in a couple of years and, so far, we have raised almost $60,000. I have also completed the 60km walk for Chris O’brien Lifehouse several times.

Now The Bradford Exchange has captured the essence of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll™ in one fashion-forward handbag that’s guaranteed to set your fashion style ablaze with a hunka, hunka burnin’ Elvis love! Handcrafted of soft, pebbled faux leather in a chic colour block of grey, black and red, our “Elvis Burning Love Handbag” is a designer must-have at a truly affordable price! The front showcases Elvis as we love him best, young and full of the sexy good looks that set the charts – and hearts – on fire! A locket-style heart charm etched with an Elvis silhouette motif adds an extra designer touch. Double faux leather handles as well as a removable, adjustable cross-body strap create an accessory that is as functional as it is fashionable. A zippered main compartment, interior accessory pockets and metal feet complete the design.
