This week... From the editor Christmas seems to creep up on me each year. I start the festive season in a surprisingly calm and confident mood thinking I’ve got plenty of time to buy presents, only to end up rushing into stores like a mad man in a last-minute bid to grab what I need. Despite the unnecessary panic, I never learn my lesson. Once the adrenalinefilled experience is over, I’m then slightly envious of those super organised people who have the foresight, and energy, to go to Boxing Day sales while I’m sitting on the lounge in a food coma. Nevertheless, I vow that this year will be different. For those of you who, like me, have no idea what to get family or friends, we’ve put together a few ideas this week to get you started. You can find that Christmas Gift Guide in our Home section on pages 32 and 33. Meanwhile, our cover stars are looking extremely graceful as they promote the upcoming Variety Santa Fun Run, which raises funds and awareness for Variety – the Children’s Charity. After a change of date to avoid a clash with the Bikers for Kids Newcastle Toy Run, organisers are hoping it will be the biggest event yet. You’ll find that story on page 26. - Ben Murphy

news Grant to provide “missing link” Maitland Mayor Loretta Baker believes a new grant for Walka Water Works will provide “the missing link” in determining the future of the site. The $366,000 grant was awarded to Maitland City Council under the State Government’s Crown Reserves Improvement Fund (CRIF). It will involve an assessment to identify any areas of the site that need repairs or restoration to preserve its heritage value, integrity, and structural adequacy. This includes the dam, dam wall, spillway and main pumphouse, as well as the boiler room, western annex, chimney, workshop and basement. The results of the assessment will contribute to the development of a Plan of Management and a Master Plan for Walka Water

Works. In 2017, then mayoral candidate Philip Penfold floated the idea of reopening a former café and museum as part of the push to increase public access. Cr Baker is unsure what the future of the site may look like. However, she is certain about its standing as “an iconic location steeped in heritage, [which] has huge significance to our community”. “Maitland people love Walka, but lots of people don’t know it exists – it’s a well-kept secret,” she says. “We’re so lucky to have it, it’s a haven for wildlife, and the architecture is spectacular.” The pumphouse, with its striking chimney and brickwork, is part of one of the largest and most intact 19th Century industrial complexes in the Hunter Valley.

The site is used for events like park run, picnics and family fun, while the former boiler room and adjacent lawn is currently used for wedding receptions, parties, and special occasions. It also offers 112 hectares of park, lake and bushland surrounding the historic building. Cr Baker says the assessment will help to unlock the site’s

potential and discover if there is any interest in development. However, she wants to reassure the community that it will not be overdeveloped and will maintain its heritage. Access to the site should not be affected throughout the assessment process. The council will deliver the results next year. - Elizabeth Symington

news Furry fire victims in need of support Hillville fire victims’ Flash, Sooty and Blaze need your help to raise money for the treatment of koalas affected by bushfires. Volunteer organisation Port Stephens Koalas is in desperate need of donations to keep up with demand. Senior carer Julie Jennings says “hundreds and hundreds” of koalas have suffered fire-related injuries across the state, with more expected over the summer period. Ms Jennings is currently looking after four-year-old fire victim Flash. At the time he was rescued, Flash was incredibly underweight, starving, and dehydrated. “My Flash is indicative of what [a lot of] koalas are experiencing,” Ms Jennings says. “His hands and feet are burnt, and the skin is peeling off.” To treat Flash’s injuries, Ms

Jennings has been applying a cooling, non-painful ointment called Flamazine. The ointment is used to prevent infection and treat severe burns, but application can be painful and the koala needs to be sedated every time it is administered. Ms Jennings says that Flash has made great improvements since being rescued and starting his treatment. He has now gained about two kilograms and shown an interest in food. “[Flash] has got a good life ahead of him if we can get him through it,” Ms Jennings says. She adds it is unlikely that you will ever come across a koala in these events because they are “so remote”. However, she advises that, if you do find an injured koala, a wildlife

care group should be contacted immediately. If you need to rescue the koala quickly, collect the animal safely, cover it up, and keep it quiet and warm. Sadly, Flash and his friends have no habitat to return to, so donations are vital to continue their care. A donation of $50 could purchase Flamazine ointment; $200 could buy an IV drip stand used in administering vital fluids for rehydration; and $2,000 could purchase a triage cot used for housing ill or injured koalas during intensive care. “Please donate to our website, where your money will go directly into purchasing vital items to care for the koalas,” Ms Jennings says. “It’s getting to the point where we need to target exactly what we

news Alma splashes past 50 years as volunteer Alma Parkes is not your average 92-year-old. For more than five decades, she has been volunteering at the Newcastle Ocean Baths with the Newcastle Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC). Every Saturday during the warmer months, the PCYC hosts a swimming club and Alma has been an integral part of its success. “I have been coming most Saturdays in the summertime,” she says. “It is so necessary when you live around the ocean – you should be competent at swimming.” Alma is concerned that the City of Newcastle’s potential redevelopment might affect accessibility of the baths and the swimming club. The proposed plan includes an overhaul of the pavilions at

Merewether and Newcastle ocean baths, with a view to establish restaurants, recreational and community facilities, as well as other services. “Everything you need is here, you’ve got good access, supervision, and a nice, reasonably priced kiosk,” Alma says. “The only thing it needs is some shade – that’s the only disadvantage, there is little shade for people to sit.” In 1989, Alma was appointed as Life Governor of the Newcastle PCYC and, in 2014, she was awarded Volunteer of the Year. She says one of the highlights has been the involvement of people with disability. “There was a man years ago, and he’d never walked,” she says. “He lived with his grandparents and we took him home one day and

[another volunteer] walked him to the front door and got him out of the wheelchair and he stood for the first time [they’d] ever seen him standing alone. “I still feel teary when I think about it.” Alma plans to continue in her role as a volunteer for as long as she can. “While ever I can keep it up, I’ll keep it up,” she says. “There might be some Saturday afternoons where I get home and have a cup of tea and sandwich and put myself to bed and watch TV, but that doesn’t matter. “I love meeting people and watching the children – it’s lovely to see a small child come in screaming and crying around their mother or fathers’ neck and then seeing them, by the end of the season, paddling away.”

Alma Parkes at the Newcastle Ocean Baths.

The swimming club is on every Saturday up until April 2020. It costs $8 per family or $4 for a child, and a PCYC membership is also required. Email newcastle@pcycnsw.org. au or call 4961 4493 for more. - Elizabeth Symington

The State Government has approved City of Newcastle’s application to secure funding to deliver more than 5,000 tonnes of sand to the southern end of Stockton Beach. As a short-term measure, the work will see the sand trucked in south of the Lexie’s café accessway before the Christmas school holidays as the first part of a two-stage project. The replacement sand will be sourced from a local commercial quarry and require hundreds of truck movements to Stockton Beach. Due to the presence of heavy machinery, access to parts of the beach will be restricted over the coming weeks. In the new year, additional sand will be placed north of the accessway, adjacent to the surf club, subject to further approvals

from the government. The $350,000 project, funded by both the City and State Government, will restore the beach’s amenity and allow sand movements along the Stockton coast to be monitored. “These funds will allow City of Newcastle to proceed with the trial restoration of the section of Stockton Beach from the holiday park to Lexie’s café in the shortterm,” Newcastle Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes said. “The project aims to reinstate the amenity of the beach previously enjoyed by locals and visitors this summer. “This work is not a preventative measure. “A long-term solution to erosion is still required.” Cr Nelmes said the City was working with the government on long-term solutions.

A new administration centre and waste facility are set to transform the growing Maitland community. The Hunter and Central Coast Joint Regional Planning Panel (JRPP) approved the plans last week, with works set to begin early in the new year. Maitland Mayor Loretta Baker believes the Maitland Administration Centre will allow the council to provide contemporary services to the community. The council began planning the $43 million development in 2015. It is set to create an estimated 197 jobs during construction. “Our current buildings are no longer fit for purpose,

council [members] are scattered everywhere,” Cr Baker says. “To bring the whole team into one building will improve how we work as a team and will help us provide better customer service.” She says that the building is important because the council “needs the best facilities for [its] team to work effectively in”. The project is likely to be completed in late 2021. Meanwhile, the council’s plans for a Waste Transfer Facility at the existing site in East Maitland includes a small vehicle waste and recycling facility; administration building; material segregation facility; and a new gatehouse to support the existing weighbridge.

news Council seeks feedback on iconic site’s restoration A state heritage-listed site will soon have a new lease on life. Lake Macquarie City Council is calling for the local community to share ideas about the revitalisation of Awaba House. Awaba House has a rich history, with only three properties being built on the Booragul site. It was purchased by the council in 1995 and served as the city’s art gallery from 1996 to 2000. The current site – and third building - then operated as a café until a fire gutted the property in August. The cause of the blaze remains unclear due to the scale of damage to the roof of the building. However, Fire and Rescue NSW believes there are no suspicious circumstances.

A Community Reference Group will now help the council to determine the most appropriate options for Awaba House. It will comprise of a community chairperson, eight community members, including at least one member of the Lake Macquarie Aboriginal community, and council staff. Manager of Property and Business Development, David Antcliff, said community input would be crucial to the site’s future. “We are seeking community representatives with skills and experience in relevant areas such as design, construction, hospitality or tourism, and willingness to contribute ideas and explore future opportunities for this site,” he said. “Being part of the reference

group is a great opportunity to have input into a landmark plan that will pave the way for our community and visitors into the future.” Prior to the third building, the first house, built in 1878, was also destroyed by a fire in 1886. A second house was then constructed in 1887, before being demolished 40 years later.

The site was purchased by the Health Commission in 1958 with plans to build a hospital, while a proposal in the 1980s included the transformation of Awaba House into a group home for developmentally disabled children or a psychiatric unit.

sport Driver’s silver lining after tough debut An accident in qualification on Friday hampered Cody McKay’s efforts during his debut in the Newcastle 500, but the local driver and his team showed great determination to get back on the road. McKay, who entered the Aussie Racing Cars category, was full of confidence and finished practice in 19th out of 33 competitors. His luck then took a turn for the worse. After pushing hard to get out of a traffic logjam, the 31-year-old suddenly found himself in trouble. “I came to the Esplanade and, unfortunately, found a wall on Zaara Street,” he told Newcastle Weekly. “I was pushing a little too hard and it’s a fine line when you’re going around touching walls.” McKay was uninjured but the car suffered extensive damage, with the incident smashing a hole in the side of the engine. A major rebuild was underway. His team worked around the clock to get him into race one, only for a “couple of gremlins” to emerge, which saw the car eventually cut out

when he went around a corner. McKay was forced to skip the second race, but managed to line up for race three on Sunday. “I was competitive but had no clutch in the engine at all,” he said. “Once I got off the line the clutch stopped, and I only got 50% throttle. “I then did the full race in race four but [the car] didn’t want to move at all. “You just never know and are never prepared for whatever happens. “I was upset at what happened – when you’ve got the world and the whole of Newcastle on your shoulders, I didn’t know what to think at the time but I’m just glad that we got the car back out there.” Despite his misfortune, McKay’s weekend ended on a high as he received the Aussie Racing Cars’ Local Legend award. The award is not necessarily for the best on track performance; it instead focuses on off-track efforts in terms of car presentation, engineering excellence, and other factors. McKay said it was nice to gain recognition for

the team’s hard work. “It was a bad weekend on the track but a great weekend off it,” he said. “[The award] is probably an acknowledgement for the effort we put in over the weekend and in the lead-up. “We’re always on social [media] and talking to people in other categories, so they must have paid attention to that.” The 2019 Newcastle 500 attracted more than 150,000 spectators from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 November. - Ben Murphy

Shell V-Power Racing’s Scott McLaughlin with the Supercars crown on Sunday.

McLaughlin’s super season Scott McLaughlin was officially crowned the 2019 champion at the Newcastle 500 after a stunning season that saw him claim a record 18 victories. The 26-year-old finished second behind Shane van Gisbergen on Saturday and placed fourth on Sunday as Jamie Whincup took out the final race of the campaign. Despite their efforts, McLaughlin had already put the championship mathematically beyond doubt at Sandown earlier this month and

became just one of five drivers to claim back-to-back titles. However, the New Zealander’s achievement was not without controversy as he was forced to deal with the ongoing fallout of his team’s breaches – for sporting and technical infringements – at the Bathurst 1000 in October. Apart from the championship, McLaughlin also won the Drivers’ Driver award for his stellar season, while van Gisbergen claimed the best and fairest gong.

Youngster wins world title Novocastrian Cody Marshall has won gold in the World Wakeboarding Association’s 30th anniversary titles in Cancun, Mexico. At just 10 years old, he’s marked milestones most people his age can only dream of. Cody managed to beat second place by 2.67 points after scoring an impressive 83.67 in the final heat. “It was really stiff competition and a lot of fun,” he says. Cody has been wakeboarding for the past four years and says it all started because they “lived on a lake”. He says he loves the sport because “you’re always having fun and you feel the wind going through your hair”.

The adrenaline-filled sport has seen Cody lock in three major sponsors – Liquid Force, Masterline and Marshall’s Timber – and travel around the world. Last year, Cody went to Japan to compete in the titles, but narrowly came second. His mum Amy believes Cody’s experience in Asia drove his determination to win this time around. Cody says winning the competition “is a little exciting” and it has fuelled his future ambitions. His wakeboarding dreams don’t stop with this title – he hopes to follow in the footsteps of his favourite wakeboarder Harley Clifford and win seven world crowns. - Elizabeth Symington

CASTLE PERSONNEL Businesses across the Hunter are taking a stand against the inequalities faced by people with disability by joining Castle Personnel’s Inclusive 100 campaign.

The campaign has gained the support of over 85 local businesses including The Wests Group, nib Health Funds and Hunter Water. Putting disability on the agenda in the workplace is the first step to removing the barriers faced by our community’s most vulnerable.

Santas to pound the pavement Santa suits are not the chosen attire for most runners. But hundreds of people will don red and white costumes and pound the pavement next month

to kick-start a special time of year for families. The annual Variety Santa Fun Run is set to start and finish at Newcastle’s The Station on Sunday 8

December, with markets to include food, drinks, and Christmas-related items for sale. It will serve as a major fundraiser for Variety – the Children’s Charity. The charity supports kids and families who are facing many challenges through sickness, disadvantage or living with special needs. Variety’s Head of Regional Development NSW & ACT, Jason Bourke, hopes it will be the biggest event yet. “It’s just a really important event at a special time of the year,” he says. “Obviously, Christmas is all about children and, being a children’s charity, we think that this is a great event to remind the community of our presence here in the Hunter and the work that we do to support kids living with disadvantage or disability.” Participants can either run or walk from The Station, off Scott Street, Watt Street or Wharf Road, before following paths along the

harbour foreshore, past Nobbys Beach, onto Newcastle Beach, and returning on the same route. There are 2.5, five, and 10-kilometre options. The event is being presented by the Newcastle Family and Sports Podiatry. Visit santafunrun.com.au for more information or to register. -Ben Murphy

THIS WEEK

Correct plant choice vital with space at a premium Readers won't be surprised that, during the last few years, gardens have been reduced in size. The increase in apartment and villa living has spurred a trend towards smaller gardens, so choosing the correct plants for such smaller spaces is vital in achieving a successful outcome. Selection and placement also affect the amount of maintenance required as the garden grows. Which plants would you like to grow when space is at a premium? Do you want them for shade, for fruit, for fragrance, for foliage,

IN THE GARDEN JUDY SHARPE

or even to attract birds into the garden? Always check the ultimate size of a plant that you are considering. When planting, avoid hot or windy days. Fussy plants should go in during autumn and winter, although you can plant almost any time during the year providing there is sufficient moisture. Plants to be avoided in small spaces are eucalypts and jacarandas. If you need fence screening, use lilly pillies or Magnolia Teddy Bears. Citrus, olives and bay trees

are ideal for pots for patios where privacy is needed. Apartment dwellers should recognise that the higher the balcony, the more difficult it is to achieve something spectacular as low growing plants are the answer. Plants survive better if mulched – this helps retain moisture and controls weeds. Organic mulches can help improve soil structure, drainage, and water holding capacity. Mushroom compost releases nutrients into the soil and promotes earthworm activity.

• Annuals planted for Christmas colour will respond to forking over surrounding soil – lift gently to aerate the ground, then water with a foliant fertiliser such as Flourish. • Living Christmas tree will be available soon, but keep in mind that their time inside is limited and remember to have a saucer under the tree as it will require water. • Prune back climbers that have finished flowering and fertilise to encourage new growth.

Bee Movie

Friday, 9GO!, 5.45pm, G (2007)

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld buzzes onto the big screen in this animated feature about everything – everything related to the world of bees, that is. Seinfeld, who wrote the film, voices its hero Barry B. Benson, a freespirited bee who shuns his role in the honeymaking process to broaden his horizons beyond his busy hive. Barry is horrified to find supermarkets selling honey.

Friday

pick of the week Caddyshack

Beauty And The Beast Saturday, 9GO!, 7pm, PG (2017)

Sunday, 7MATE, 7pm, PG (1980)

Belle is no ordinary Disney princess. She reads, she fights, she tells it like it is and follows her own rules and Emma Watson (pictured) brings the right amount of grace and grit to this live-action retelling of the 1991 animation favourite. The set and costume details are exquisite and the writers have done a marvellous job filling in some plot holes from the original. Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) is unrecognisable as the surly Beast.

Misadventure and hijinks abound at an exclusive golf club, where the wealthy and poor take up the class struggle on the fairways. Brimming with outrageous performances, this one breaks all the rules. Chevy Chase (pictured) is a hoot as a wise playboy. Great set pieces and some sidesplitting humour.

celebrity birthday

GAEL GARCIA BERNAL 30 November 1978

Gael needs to avoid being too tetchy with his friends and loved ones during the year ahead. He may mean well, but will come across as pushy and because of this will put others offside. A good dose of regular sport and physical activity will release tension and this will let him smooth down the way he deals with people in his personal life. He will gain a lot of satisfaction from being out in the fresh air.

You might travel or take the time to investigate a part of the world which you have always fancied knowing better. Your work could take you into a business venture which involves overseas goods, services, property or selling to foreigners, thereby learning about them and their way of living.

Work will be important to you this month. You could find your job becoming more interesting or you start to do something new and highly satisfying. You will have to get to grips with paperwork, book keeping, important emails, updating your technology or learning to use new equipment.

FINDING NEW PLACES TO EAT I love food and having a beer. The Burwood Inn is a favourite location of mine.

My favourite things FOOTBALL I’d be lost without football. I obviously play for Newcastle now and I love it. The town gets behind their team, so pulling on the red and blue is something I’m proud to do.

FAMILY We all love our family. It’s where it all starts and finishes. They come up to visit a bit and my partner, Kristin, just moved to Newcastle, which is great.

Mitchell Pearce NEWCASTLE KNIGHTS CAPTAIN

As the captain and halfback, Pearce is the architect of the Newcastle Knights’ team. Having joined the Knights in December 2017 from the Sydney Roosters, in what was a huge signing for the club, Pearce made an immediate impact when he kicked the match-winning field goal in his first game in round one of the 2018 season. He went to another level last season, winning six straight man of the match awards on his way to a return to the State of Origin arena, where he was a major catalyst in a NSW series victory. Pearce made his NRL debut with the Roosters in 2007 as a 17-year-old and won a premiership with the team in 2013. He became the youngest ever player in NRL history to play 200 matches in the top grade. The son of Wayne Pearce, he has an exceptional kicking game, is a great competitor, and possesses strong leadership qualities. 54

FRIENDS I’m fortunate that I have a close group of friends. It’s always a great time when you can go out for dinner with a mate and catch up.

TRAVEL I love travelling in general. That’s a big one. I love to get away from routine. I’m enjoying it more as I get older.
