Grants to ensure the beat goes on TWO entertainment venues on the Mornington Peninsula have received grants as part of the federal government’s $2.5 million Live Music Australia Program. The Pig and Whistle Tavern at Main Ridge will get $58,925 to host live Australian music gigs and workshops in The Shed Theatre. Westernport Yacht Club will get $30,390 for modifications to the venue, and equipment upgrades to support, establish, and promote COVID-normal live original music. Flinders MP Greg Hunt said the money would “reinvigorate the local music scene as vaccination rates continue to increase and state government restrictions ease”. “This funding is vital to not only boost our economy, but to ensure these venues can once again provide communities with the social settings we’ve all missed,” Mr Hunt said. The Pig and Whistle’s James McPherson said the money would help the venue to engage with not only local artists but create touring opportunities for performers from other areas. “The peninsula has an abundance of talented entertainment professionals: performers, writers, designers and production crew,” he said. “This grant will help us encourage artists and provide a professional space to allow them to embrace the future, re-discover their purpose and work their way back into the industry.” DECKING T/Pine 70x22 KD ACQ ........................... $3.25mt T/Pine 90x22 KD ACQ ........................... $4.25mt Merbau 70x19 Random ........................ $5.25mt Merbau 90x19 Random ........................ $6.50mt Merbau 140x22 Random .................... $13.25mt Spotted Gum 86x19 .............................. $8.95mt Spotted Gum 135x19........................... $15.95mt

Burglary charges CHILDREN enjoy beach and bush activities at The Portsea Camp.

GREG Hunt

Camp needs a lifeline

Westernport Yacht Club vice commodore Adam Smith said the club had provided a base for the peninsula’s music scene for 20 years. “COVID-19 put that on hold, but this grant will enable us to bring original Australian music back to our passionate community. “Now for the first time we will also be able to live stream gigs to reach a much broader audience who, for various reasons, aren’t able to attend on the night.” Modifications to the yacht club will allow it to maximise attendance while adhering to social-distancing, better utilise balcony space and maximise the flow of fresh air. “Improved acoustics and lighting will enhance the artist experience and improve the experience for audiences away from the stage,” Mr Smith said. “Most importantly, we will once again provide a stage for the best musical acts from the peninsula and further afield.”

THE Portsea Camp may be needed more than ever with young people reporting that their mental health deteriorating since the outbreak of COVID-19. But the camp needs community support to keep the doors open. The camp, near the beach in a bush setting, was established in 1946 as a non-denominational and registered charity governed by a board of directors. Since then, it has provided a holiday for more than 75,000 children. Chairman Mark Betts said the camp’s role was to provide community and charitable services to at-risk children and their carers – predominantly children with a range of neuro-diversities, LGBTQ+, and developmental trauma. It also provides a holiday place for those in child protection, suffering from fam-

ily violence, kinship care cohorts and children affected by regional and rural disadvantage – poverty, isolation and those from bushfire-affected regions. The camp receives no government money for it to provide outdoor nature based-programs. “The camp provides an invaluable service to the children of Victoria – providing lasting memories, building strength and resilience and, above all, letting children have fun,” Mr Betts said. “We must all work together to see that The Portsea Camp can continue to deliver its mission and allow many more generations of children and their families the opportunity to be nurtured by this unique organisation.” Donations can be made at gofundme.com/f/the-portsea-campneeds-your-help.

POLICE who intercepted a silver VW van at Tootgarook last week had no idea it contained $20,000 in goods allegedly stolen from holiday homes at the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula. Detectives called to the scene arrested a 42-year-old Frankston South woman and a 49-year-old Capel Sound man, 5.40am, Thursday 21 October. Detective Acting Sergeant Steve Reidy, of Somerville CIU, said the alleged burglaries had been committed from July to October. The woman was charged with burglary, handling stolen goods, possessing the proceeds of crime, theft, committing an indictable offence while on bail, and breaching bail conditions. She was remanded in custody to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 12 November. Her accomplice was charged with handling stolen goods and possessing the proceeds of crime. He was bailed to appear at Dromana Magistrates’ Court in March.
