AT A time when most people would be licking their wounds, Murrays Brewing Co have taken a deep breath, dug

HARRY Adnam, a young Soldiers Point teenager, has a bright future ahead of him. Harry was recently chosen to be a youth representative at the YMCA NSW Junior Parliament 2016. This was the third consecutive year of Junior Parliament and it was an incredible time for all those who participated. The YMCA Junior deep and pulled a rabbit out of their hat. They still have a lot of obstacles to overcome after Friday morning’s fire but Murrays are firmly committed to getting the show back on the road as soon as possible. Despite the fire, the staff were committed to a local bride and grooms wedding day as well as creating a temporary wine tasting and

Murray’s Brewery set to rebuild after devastating fire FROM Page 1 support that we have had from everyone,” Ms Silva said. Emergency Services were called to the well known Port Stephens Winery and Murrays Brewery, in the early hours of last Friday morning (14 October 2016) after a fire swept through severely

damaging one of its buildings, the Cellar Door. This building was completely gutted by the fire. No one was hurt and whilst the fire has been a major setback for the brewing business, forging ahead seems to be the attitude all around. “We still have wine tasting and wine and packaged beer sales

available through our temporary shop,” Ms Silva said. Owner, Murray Howe said he is heartbroken to see what has happened but is very positive for a quick ‘bounce back’ to get everything operating as normal again soon. The staff and owners wish to thank everyone for the community spirit and well wishes

and it is this support that is empowering them to soldier on. The cause of the blaze is still unknown at the time of publication while investigation has been ongoing. Murray’s will remain open in a restricted capacity but will continue to give Bay News Of The Area more updates as they come to hand.

NSW Parliament for teenager... FROM Page 1

It is a unique program targeting young people in years 7-9, throughout the state of NSW to take part in the political youth development program. “It was a wonderful opportunity for Harry and other students who are academically minded,” Paula Adnam,Harry’s Mother, told News Of The Area. “During the week, Harry also had the opportunity to attend a

week long camp with the other junior representatives and so it was all very exciting,” Mrs Adnam said. Harry Adnam was school captain at Soldiers Point Primary School and was then chosen to be a student at the Selective Academic School Merewether High. Harry is 14 years of age and is currently in Year 8. To be considered as a youth representative in Junior

Parliament, Harry had to choose two topics from a suggested ten and submit his essays to the panel. Harry chose subjects close to his heart, aged care and mental health. His essay on mental health talked about how important he felt it was to have a subject on mental health included into the school curriculum. Harry recommended that the subject should have it’s own teacher assigned to it. Mental Health issues are so

common today and the young teen believes that having the subject included at school would help diffuse the social stigma that this illness carries. The suggestion obviously impressed the judging panel and four weeks later Harry received notification that he was accepted as one of the candidates. The best is yet to come in this young man’s life and Bay News Of the Area looks forward to keeping abreast of Harry’s upcoming achievements.

needs one,” Mrs Fraser told News Of The Area. Fiddle muffs have been designed to assist those that need to keep their hands busy and as a distraction tool. Excellent for those suffering dementia, in hospital or any kind of setting where distraction is beneficial. Their uses are limitless. Each and every one is unique and can be created with a particular recipient in mind.

Buttons, zippers, pocket, beads and lace are some of the accessories attached to the muff. Mrs Thomson, 64 years, has been knitting for only three weeks. “I am so proud of myself, Rose has helped me learn some basics and I used Dr Google to learn how to cast off, and I did it,” Mrs Thomson said. “If I can learn at 64, anyone can.” Mrs Cox donates her work to the John Hunter Hospital, Dementia and Delirium program. Mrs Cox said, “I have been advised that this will be a long term project and muffs will be

required on an ongoing basis.” The volunteers do not charge for the muffs and have been approached on numerous occasions by people wanting to donate. With this in mind and to assist with sustainability, they will be setting up a Go Fund Me account for anyone wishing to donate. The volunteers are happy to accept machine washable wool, 8ply and up.

Protests continue against Aquaculture Farm By Jewell DRURY

THE HUON and NSW State Government’s Aquaculture Farm is being met with more protest from individuals as well as tourist operators. Concerned residents and business operator feel there are questions that still have not been

answered. “Why has there not been an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) done on the local marine fauna and the tourism industry that depends on it?” “With 2,137 km of NSW coast line, why put a fish farm in the middle of an operational tourism area?”

Phillip Campey joint owner of Feet First Dive Shop Nelson Bay, told Bay News Of The Area,“This particular area is a migratory path of whales and their calves using Broughton Island as a marker.” “Last Saturday we had 17 sets of mothers and their calves in that area between Cabbage

Tree Island and Broughton Island,” Mr Campey said. This same area supports a huge dolphin population, turtles and blue penguins as well as a seal colony on Cabbage Tree Island. The site is directly adjacent to some of the best dive sites in the area, including Broughton Islands ‘Looking Glass dive site’. “There must be some kind of financial gain to

Tara is passionate about “being” the change, creating change and contributing to change within today’s world. “My hope is to bring the importance of self love and acceptance through this event, allowing people to take time out to nurture themselves to create inner change, growth and happiness,” Ms Scott told Bay News Of The Area. “This I believe is potent power and energy that changes the world and then added to the magic of

someone to allow the project to go ahead under an old EIA that was given for a smaller and much older snapper farm many years ago,” Trudie Blackett co owner of Feet First Dive Shop said. “The Huon / DPI farm is in a different location, is a different size and a different fish to the previous Snapper Farm and it is unbelievable that a new EIA wasn’t needed,” Ms Blackett said. Last week a whale was caught in one of the mooring lines in the Huon Aquaculture lease and was videoed and photographed by Imagine Cruise owner Bronny Starling. A spokesman for the DPI strongly denied this claim believing that the whale was entrapped in net lines from another source. Another concern that the protesters have is that this area is prime grey nurse shark territory. “The excess feed and faecal fall out will collect under the pens and be swept into the general area by currents, affecting the water quality, visibility and force dolphins, grey nurse sharks and the other sea mammals to search for food in alternative locations,” Phillip Campey said. this event is that all funds will cause global changes in the lives of the girls who otherwise would not be given the chance of choice and education.” “My aim is to show people that we all have the power within us to change the world and it doesn’t have to be serious or hard work but rather as simple as just showing up to yourself,” Tara Scott said. All money raised from this event will be going towards educating girls in Uganda and Sierra Leone. For more information please go to www.onegirl.

Each Bag Matters By Mandy ELLIS

HAD plastic bags been discarded in the ocean around 1566, they would only now, in 2016 be breaking up. Four hundred and fifty years, or so, is the time it takes for a plastic bag to break up. That is four or five generations in a human family. This is only the average, as plastic bags can take from 20 to 1000 years to break up. Australia alone uses 6.9 billion plastic bags a year, of which 3.6 billion are plastic shopping bags. If you tied 6.9 billion plastic bags together end on end they would travel around the world 42.5 times. It is also important to note the difference between ‘break up’ and ‘break down’. When the plastic bags break up, they simply break

up into smaller pieces therefore spreading the toxins and making it easier for aquatic life to eat the plastic. Tania Rossiter, of Martinsville, travels weekly to the Bay for scuba diving and to keep an eye on Kelpie the green turtle. Tania was instrumental in the initial rescue of Kelpie and was given the privilege of releasing Kelpie back into the ocean when he had fully recovered after a stint of two months’ recovery at Taronga Zoo Tania is also the founder of Kelpie’s Clean Up, and told News Of The Area, “Every bag you decline makes a massive difference, and we can all make a difference by choices we make daily.” Tania is pro-active when it comes to protecting our environment, which is one reason she created the group.

One aspect of Kelpie’s Clean Up is to encourage the public, especially young people, to be environmentally aware. By encouraging parents and community members to post an image on Kelpie’s facebook page when a piece of rubbish has been removed from the beach, park or ocean they then enter a monthly competition which is supported by local business, who are also passionate about the environment. How empowering to know that by saying no to a plastic bag today, in 2016, we are looking out for our future families in around 2466.

q GREYHOUNDS: Mick Worth and James Saunders.

Dogs are back on track admitted in Parliament last week that the decision to shut down the entire NSW Greyhound Racing Industry had been mistake. “I got it wrong, the Cabinet got it wrong, the Government got it wrong,” he said. “The greyhound industry will be given a last chance, providing it meets the toughest animal welfare and regulation requirements in the country.” Former Premier Morris Iemma will chair a Greyhound Industry Reform Panel that will determine the new regime. The details of reforms are unclear at this stage but could include fewer races and capping the number of dogs breed to 2000. Bulahdelah owner and trainer Mick Worth said

while the local greyhound community are relieved the government have reversed the ban, they are proceeding with caution. “The decision has been made due to political pressure and nothing else,” he said. “Mr Baird was adamant that banning greyhound racing was the right thing to do and under no circumstances could the industry be reformed, but with his leadership now being questioned he’s prepared to backflip.” Mr Worth said as Premier Mike Baird had completed so many backflips in the past week, he should consider taking up gymnastics.

LOCAL greyhound owners have welcomed the NSW Government’s decision to overturn the ban on Greyhound Racing and give the Industry one last chance. Local greyhound breeder James Saunders said while everyone is relieved that racing will continue, the decision hasn’t taken away any of the anger felt during the past three months. “It was extremely stressful, I’m a breeder predominantly and I couldn’t sell the dogs, couldn’t give them away and compensation wasn’t guaranteed,” he said. “I had no money coming in, a mortgage to pay and dogs to feed, it was pretty cruel what they did to us.” Premier Mike Baird

Koala Street Food Trees Embrace the art


Green Army at Soldiers Point Photo - Square Shoe Photography

By Mandy ELLIS THE local Green Army team have been working their magic along Soldiers Point Road where they are nearing the completion of their latest project. The team of eight, headed by Stacy Mail, have spent a mere three days clearing, constructing and planting an area to encourage koalas to take up residence there rather than risk crossing the busy road. The project is dedicated

to koala habitat restoration and is funded by the Commonwealth Government with Port Stephens Council being the project sponsor. Funding is available until 2018. The project covers from Anna Bay to Soldiers Point with a focus on the Soldiers Point area. Age ranges for the current Green Army team are from 17 to 24 years. “It is nice having a young team, they keep me young and on my toes,” Stacy told

News Of The Area. “For me, my motivation is, doing it for the cause, to see that we have made an impact and made more habitat available for future koalas,” she said. Stacy is very proud of the strong team environment that is built upon supporting and encouraging each other. “Although a previous participant had been successful in securing a higher paid job after he was part of one of the Green Army projects, he returned as he missed the team spirit,” she said. The benefits for young people to participate in the Green Army projects are, training, work experience and knowing they have made a difference. Certificates are awarded for WHS compliance and also for Chemical use. Stacy would like to thank the local residents of Soldiers Point for their support for the planting of koala street food trees. The next project is scheduled for late January 2017, if anyone is interested, please apply online at www. au/green-army/nsw-act

Science Club goes off Council support with a bang Richardson family


Taine Bramble.


PORT Stephens Councillors have unanimously endorsed the waiving of development application fees relating to the renovation of the Nelson Bay home of deceased NSW Police Sergeant Geoffrey Richardson. Sergeant Richardson was tragically killed on duty in March this year after a crash during a pursuit in Allandale. The ‘Margi’s House’ project, coordinated by the NSW Police and Channel 9, will see works undertaken on behalf of Sergeant Richardson’s wife, Senior Constable Margaret King, and

the couple’s two sons. The project will be featured in a story to be aired on A Current Affair. “It’s only a small contribution but it’s one I am proud that Council was able to make,” Mayor Bruce MacKenzie said. “I’d personally met Sergeant Richardson on a couple of occasions and he was very dedicated to his work, and by extension to the people of Port Stephens, as all our local Policemen and women are. He was a dedicated, professional officer and his passing was a

tragedy.” “Helping out by waiving development fees is the least we could do to honor Sergeant Richardson and his family. I commend the NSW Police and Channel 9 for their involvement in this wonderful gesture to the Richardson family,” Mayor MacKenzie said. Council agreed to waive all fees and charges for the development application and construction certificate, including undertaking all mandatory inspections.

SCIENCE Club has been running in Anna Bay since January this year, helping to educate local youngsters.

Originally it began as a vacation activity, but due to demand there are now two weekly sessions. Suellen Wilson runs the club from her exciting

learning lab. A science teacher of 34 years, Suellen decided to change track following a redundancy last year. After taking a new qualification in Preschool Education, she noticed how much the children enjoyed the experiments she was performing in a few local childcare centres. A lightbulb moment followed and Science Club was born! Topics covered recently include: chemical reactions, forensics, consumer science and electronics. Children have also taken part in an astronomy night as well as working with drones and Edison robots. It is an exciting new invention that is Lego compatible and can be programmed. Wednesday night Science Club is for upper primary students whereas Saturday morning is for 4-8 year olds. The younger children have also been doing experiments, as well as insect studies. Taine, age 10, who attends Science Club with his brother, Beau, 12, told News Of The Area, “We love Science Club. We do cool things and learn stuff too.”

Smart Suits, Fabulous Frocks

Nelson Bay Rotary Club join forces with Port Stephen’s Women’s Crisis and Support Group (PSWCS) for this wonderful event.

By Jewell DRURY

HERALDED as the social event of the season, Nelson Bay Rotarians invite you to Broughton’s On The Bay Saturday 29 October 11.30 am. A Rotary long lunch will be held at the beautiful Broughton’s On The Bay, overlooking the sparkling waters of the d’Albora Marina. The event is being called ‘Smart Suits and Fabulous Frocks’ and a delicious culinary menu, fine champagne, oysters, Hunter Valley Wines and cheeses will compliment the day. Known for her artistic food flair, we have the pleasure of having Amanda Douglass Catering providing a culinary delight for our main meal. The highlight of the event will be an auction and raffle, with items such as an Oscar De la Renta dress, 4 nights and 5 days in Paris, accommodation for seven people at “Sea Pearl” Corlette, a beachfront home. A magnificent private cruise for 10 people on the

“Hells Bells” a 105ft Yacht in Sydney Harbour is yet another auction item that is set to impress at this exciting fundraising event. Tickets are $100 each with only 200 tickets available. “We have some wonderful donations of prizes to raffle and auction and this day promises to be wonderful,” Judy Mitchell President of the Nelson Bay Rotary Club told Bay News Of The Area. “It is a lovely opportunity to enjoy a beautiful lunch together in a wonderful venue, whilst helping others in our local community,” Ms Mitchell said. This promises to be not only a day with a difference but a day to make a difference in the lives of others. Nelson Bay Rotary Club join forces with Port Stephen’s Women’s Crisis and Support Group (PSWCS) for this wonderful event. The Port Stephen’s Women’s Crisis and Support Group was formed over twenty years ago due to the lack of housing for local women who had suffered


domestic violence. A cottage was kindly donated and a further two


units built later for the use of these women who were in dire need of housing, giving them a time for recovery both financially and psychologically. PSWCS has a DA for three more units to house the growing number of women in need. Only having received a partial funding grant from Community Building Partnerships, there is still a huge need for more finances to get this project to its completion stage. This fundraising event will make a huge contribution to the building of these three units.

Special thanks must be made to Karen Shaw and the hospitality students of Tomaree High School who will make a major contribution to this beautiful day. For more information please ring Judy Mitchell on 0408659605 or email g ra p e s 2 8 @ b i g p o n d . c o m for tickets and further information.

Probus visits HMRI

HMRI’s work impacts a wide range of health problems to make some of the world’s biggest health challenges a thing of the past.

By Jewell DRURY

THE Probus Club of Port Stephens had a most interesting visit to the Hunter Medical Research Institute Open Day.

A first class and world renowned facility with more than 1400 medical researchers working across Hunter New England Local Health District and the University of Newcastle.

HMRI’s work impacts a wide range of health problems to make some of the world’s biggest health challenges a thing of the past. The many staff on hand were very friendly and

helpful with some dressed as mad scientists which added to the fun element of the day. “The highlight for the group and I was when we sat in on an interesting talk by one of the researchers, in one of the auditoriums about cancer research and another about the importance of nutrition,” Ann Gibson, Probus Publicity Officer told Bay News Of The Area. “It was a lovely day and we were given access to many areas, with staff on hand to

THE SeaSide Singers Community Choir have pleasure in announcing our third bi-annual Choral Festival. This event is held every two years and this year it is on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October at the Soldiers Point Bowling Club, St Philips Christian School and the Nelson Bay Marina. The theme this year is “Celebrating the Community Choir” and will not only be a showcase for each choir, but a recruitment and training event as well. This is a new and exciting format that explores the issues of what is a community choir and includes discussions on how to develop a choir and also recruit more members. Why not come along and find out? In addition we are very excited to have as our special celebrity guest performers “The Hunter Singers”, a world famous Newcastle based choir conducted by the eminent Ms Kim Sutherland OAM! The workshop and our

Big Sing item with all the choirs singing a previously learnt song together, will be led by Mr Peter Guy, Concert Master of the Newcastle Cathedral. Registration on Saturday will be from 9.30am with the first Workshop starting at 10am. There are two concerts on Saturday 29th – in the afternoon where each choir will presents a set, and a gala evening concert featuring the Hunter Singers along with all choirs. The festival concludes on the Sunday 30th in the morning with an informal concert at the Marina. This event not only draws together other visiting choirs from the North Coast, but is a huge boost to the tourism industry with 4 other choirs and their families staying the weekend. It is also another entertainment opportunity for our loyal audiences to enjoy. It is always hard getting a large audience and the choir puts so much work into presenting an entertaining show for the community and we appreciate your support.

Arranging the Professor OPINION Dear News Of The Area, I WISH to inform News Of The Area that I am in the process of arranging for Professor Cyndi Weickert, one of Australia’s, if not the world’s most eminent brain scientists to visit Port Stephens for the purpose of conducting an open


public forum on the nature of mental illness and the latest scientific research. I have spoken to a number of local community organisations who are all enthusiastic about this event. I was instrumental in the formation and development of the Schizophrenia Research Institute of Australia for which I was awarded the Order of Australia. Since coming to Port Stephens to live upon my retirement, I have become more and more aware of the widespread incidence of mental illness in the area, including suicide. As I was instrumental in bringing Professor Weickert to Australia from the United States to take up the position of Australia’s first Chair of Schizophrenia Research, I have continued to support her cutting edge brain research into mental Please see attached some more information. Much obliged. Diana Souter Musical Director, SeaSide Singers Choir

Professor Cyndi Weickert. illness. I am delighted that she has accepted my invitation to come to Port Stephens to conduct an open public forum on the nature of mental illness and the latest scientific research. Professor Weickert has advised of her availability to stage this event on 12 April 2017 commencing at 6pm, which will be just after she returns from a series of international conferences in March next year where all of the world’s leading brain scientists will be meeting to discuss their research. In the lead up to this event Professor Weickert has agreed to come to Port Stephens on 9 November to meet local community leaders at a reception commencing at 5pm. This event will be a springboard for the success of her visit in April. I am currently negotiating to obtain a venue for both of these events.

It’s in the Bag By Mandy ELLIS

WHAT price do you put on your dignity? What’s In The Bag is an initiative of Share the Dignity, a nationwide volunteer group. The Recycling Centre at Salamander Bay is in its first year as a host for donations for this worthy cause and have a collection point located near the check out. Maret, a representative of the Recycling Centre, told News Of The Area, “For as long as I am working here, I hope we will have this collection point.”

“I was shocked to learn, ladies were reduced to using newspaper as they were forced to choose between food and sanitary products No one should have to make that decision,” she said. The current appeal is for Christmas, and is called It’s in the Bag. This is for donations of handbags, deodorant, lip balm, toothbrush/paste, baby wipes, hair brush, a whistle and sanitary towels. Sanitary towels are available locally from as little as $1.69 for 20 pads. Whilst it is not essential for the handbags to be new,

they do need to be in good condition. The aim for the Christmas appeal is to give ladies a handbag filled with essentials and to ensure they have something for Christmas day – their dignity. The closing date for the appeal is end of November 2016 and donations will be distributed through the Yacaaba centre, Nelson Bay. To help get the ball rolling, the Recycling Centre has donated $100 worth of sanitary towels to this worthy cause. For more information call Salamander Recycling Centre on 4984 6244 or www.

Taste of what’s to come A POPULAR food and wine festival has been resurrected thanks to the Tomaree Business Chamber and the support of business. “Tastes of the Bay is back in 2016,” said Tomaree Business Chamber president Ryan Palmer. Mr Palmer said there was a public outcry when the Festival did not run in 2015 so the Chamber set about reinventing the event to bring people to Nelson Bay’s CBD and waterfront. Mr Palmer has been able to bring Greater Bank on board as major sponsor, and with event co-ordinator Peter Clough, secured the support of Destination NSW, Port Stephens Council and Telstra. The new paper in town, Bay News Of The Area has also come on board as a

sponsor of the event. For the first time, the two day event on 5 and 6 November will be centred on the Nelson Bay CBD as well as the marina. “We want to showcase and provide benefit to the diverse, vibrant business in the Nelson Bay CBD,” Mr Palmer told News Of The Area. “Tastes will showcase the wonderful and delicious food Nelson Bay has to offer with food and wine tastings and great jazz in Magnus and Stockton streets.” “The event also includes a progressive jazz luncheon cruise on Port Stephens, a high tea and cooking demonstrations,” he said. Mr Palmer said the event will be a family affair with the Greater Bank LifeSaver Kids Zone offering jumping castles, face painting, free

showbags and a lolly jar guessing competition. The Chamber is hoping to attract visitors from the rest of the Hunter, Sydney, Midnorth Coast and Central Coast regions. “We are hoping for an attendance of 15,000 or more which will be a great boost to the local business community. The event started in 2001 and is arguably Nelson Bay’s largest annual event. Greater Bank is offering two free double passes to both the jazz cruise and the high tea. To enter visit Greater Bank’s Facebook page. Entry into the event is free with people able to purchase tickets for food and wine tastings. For more information visit tastes

Check in and read the signals By Mandy ELLIS LAST week, on 11 October, the day was World Mental Health Day. This is a subject we should all be talking about on a regular basis. We should also think about what we would do if when we ask someone, “Are you ok?” and they were to respond with something concerning like, “I’m feeling awful, I am having thoughts of self-harming,” or something similar. Honest responses like these need to be taken seriously. Keeping lines of communication open will assist the person to feel less alone, valued and heard. Spending time, if possible, in a non-

judgemental way can go a long way to helping someone feel that things can be worked through. Sometimes, verbalising the issue, can bring solutions. Sometimes, a different viewpoint and open discussion can bring solutions. Sometimes, simply being heard can lift the spirits of someone feeling mentally unwell. As per, Beyond Blue’s website, Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide. In Australia, it’s estimated that 45 per cent of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. In any one year, around one million Australian adults have depression, and over two million have anxiety

Thursday, 20 October, 2016

There are many triggers for mental health problems, just like there are many triggers and causes for any other health problem. However, when we put mental in front of health people can become judgemental even uncomfortable when told by someone how they are feeling. For those suffering, they may feel embarrassed about feeling the way they do. Removing the stigma from such a topic has been an ongoing issue. There are services throughout Australia with support lines available 24 hours a day. Kids Help Line 1800 55 1800, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Lifeline 13 11 14 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Bridget Jones’s Baby Fundraiser By Jewell DRURY LAST month saw a turn out of 400 beautiful women to Nelson Bay Cinemas for the second major fundraising event this year. Bridget Jones’s Baby was definitely a huge draw card with the three cinemas packed full of smiling faces in support of this great cause. “It’s a real social function and a great opportunity for the people of the Bay Area to support this great organisation,” Neil Merrin, owner of Nelson Bay Cinema, told News Of The Area. “We had all three cinemas filled to capacity, all running the movie at the same time,” Mr Merrin said. Port Stephens Women’s Cancer Support Group is a Not for Profit support group run by local volunteers to offer support and assistance to women with any form of cancer, and their partners, through every stage of their journey. “Tonight is dedicated

to Sarah Litten whom we lost recently,” Kylie Baker, Treasurer of Port Stephens Women’s Cancer Support Group told News Of The Area. “Sarah was a founding member of our support group and she is greatly loved and missed,” Kylie said. “I have recently seen two beautiful friends lose their battle with cancer, Tui Campbell and Sarah Litten will never be forgotten,” Ms Baker added. Services through the organisations include: transport to treatment in Newcastle, monthly morning teas, house cleaning, lawn mowing, dog walking, child care, wellness days, and other support mechanisms. Monthly morning teas are held at Baroque Coffee House and provide the opportunity for a casual catch up and a way of meeting new friends. The organisation also offer Wellness Days for members held at Thou

Walla Sunset Retreat at Soldiers Point - activities include guest speakers and therapists, provide information, promote healthy lifestyles, maintain a library of wellness books and DVD’s provide wigs, hats and scarfs. With the help of Tomaree Prostate Cancer Support Group the organisation provides transport for patients to and from treatments. With the support of the Cancer Council we provide assistance with house cleaning, lawn mowing, dog walking and child care. The aim for the future is the hope to establish a Wellness Centre in Port Stephens in order to help patients, their families and carers access support and information from trained staff and volunteers. Another goal is to provide access to complementary treatments, access to nutritional advice as well as access to legal and financial support. If you would like to help in anyway please contact Sarah on 0427 676 366 or email at pswcsg@yahoo.

Do you have a heart for fostering? By Jewell DRURY

DO you have a heart for children and families in need? There are many Foster Care organisations in our local region who are currently seeking compassionate individuals, couples and families to become Foster Carers. Foster Carers provide long and short-term care or weekend respite foster care for children and young people who are unable to live with their families. The children who come into the Carers home may present both challenges and opportunities. The challenge is caring for children who have experienced difficult circumstances in their life and may be insecure, frightened

and sometimes angry. If you choose to Foster, the opportunity you will have is to give love, understanding and patience to your Foster child as well as the reward you will receive back from them. There are many Foster Care families living in the Bay Area. You may not recognise them as “Foster Carers” as they appear as normal family units within your schools, sporting and social organisations and workplaces. The Tomaree Peninsular is a beautiful place to bring up children in a safe, slow paced and friendly environment. “I had a friend who used to work for Life Without Barriers a Foster Care Organisation, and she asked

me what I would like to do now that my children had grown up?” Donna Olive, Foster Carer of Anna Bay, told Bay News Of The Area. “I told her that I loved being a Mum and that it seemed to come natural to me. I told her that it was a shame that being a Mum wasn’t a real job.” “It was then that she told me about Foster Care. As she spoke, I became more and more excited and wanted to know more.” “The following year, I began fostering. That was seven years ago and now three children later, I have never looked back.” “I love making a home for the children that have been placed in my care and I receive so much more back from them in return,” Donna said. Contact any of the Foster Care Organisations across the Hunter Region for more details.

Johnnie Keith, 22 of Blue Bay, Central Coast, won the Open Men’s Finals, and said, “The start of the year I didn’t do very good.” “This, though is a good starter for next year, and the prize money is a bonus to top it off and to help pay for future comps.” Johnnie, would also like to thank his sponsor Slimes and Indianna for running the events. Indianna is keen to acknowledge the sponsors, who she said, “Without their

support, we could not do this event and the prize money really makes a huge difference to the competitors.” Therefore, Indianna would like to acknowledge the generous support of

Kaos Surf, Vissla, Ocean and Earth, Salamander Bay Shopping Centre and Telstra Salamander Bay. Look out for future events and information on Surfarama’s facebook page.
