FOR EXCELLENCE

Party’s over for drivers sor, Senior Sergeant Fiona Waters said the campaign was a reminder that the roads are not the place to party and will work in support of police operations cracking down on drug and alcoholaffected drivers this Christmas. “The campaign will focus on alcohol screening and increased enforcement pertaining to distraction offences.” These include the use of mobile phones, distraction by passengers or entertainment systems, GPS or social media devices.

“Irresponsible road users won’t be tolerated. “If you drink or take drugs and drive, if you speed, drive unlicensed or an unregistered car the party’s over.” Hobsons Bay police Inspector Richard Paterson said officers are actively targeting these offences. “Recent collisions in Hobsons Bay have been attributed to these factors and I’ll be using our police resources to make our roads safer for all users,” Insp Paterson said.

“I want people to enjoy the festive season, but to do so in a safe environment.” TAC CEO Janet Dore said December was traditionally one of the deadliest months on the state’s roads, making the campaign a timely reminder to be safe. “Two hundred and ten people have died already this year and thousands more have been injured. “We want to see Victorians keep safe on the roads for the rest of 2013,” Ms Dore said.

THE party is over for drivers who do the wrong thing on the roads over the holiday season. Police in Hobsons Bay along with the Traffic Accident Commission (TAC) have joined a state-wide initiative to crackdown on risky driving as the community counts down to the festive season. The launch of The Party’s Over campaign coincides with last week’s release of the TAC’s latest fatality and

serious injury data showing year-onyear trends. According to the data there have been three fatalities in the municipality in 2013 compared to one last year. There were 11 claims involving acute hospitalisation over 14 days during 12 months to April 2013 compared to 10 in 2012. And there was 50 claims involving acute hospitalisation admission in 2013, down from 55 in 2012. Hobsons Bay Road Policing Advi-

PHILIPPINES born Sabina Riego is proud of her heritage so when disaster struck in her birthplace she jumped into action. The 42-year-old Altona Meadows resident was devastated by the news about Typhoon Haiyan and was keen to take the opportunity to be part of the organising committee for the charity event Entertainment Extravaganza. The typhoon ripped through the south-east Asian nation’s central islands.

Ms Riego did not embrace her culture until seven years ago after her father needed help when he established the Melbourne Integrated Sport Club. But it was her first trip back to the Philippines six years ago that she understood the old adage of Australia being “the lucky country”. “That’s when it hit me how poor they really are.” Ms Riego, who was born in the Philippines, was not directly affected by the disaster but said it was a natural instinct to want to help and an example set by

her parents. “It’s a very Filipino trait. We are very loving, very generous people even if we have nothing on the table we’ll still invite you over for dinner and serve you something.” She said her parent’s home was always open to strangers and housed many people who arrived in Australia from the Philippines for a better life and trying to get on their feet. “It’s just what we do, we band together to help out our people.”

THE Regional Rail Link (RRL) project will be going full steam ahead over the summer holidays to take advantage of lower commuter numbers. The $4.8 billion project will reach a major milestone on 22 December with the opening of two new platforms at Southern Cross station and the project’s first section of dedicated V/Line tracks, which means trains on the Geelong line will have a clear run to Southern Cross and won’t have to wait behind metropolitan trains. Following this, a construction blitz from 28 December to 19 January will see the next stages of the project begin to take shape, including: The revamping of Footscray and Sunshine train stations, including new platforms on the Irving St side of Footscray train station; The removal of the Anderson Rd level crossing; and The demolition of the old Nicholson St bridge and the installation of the new bridge. “With Regional Rail Link on budget and ahead of schedule, passengers are going to progressively start seeing benefits well before the project’s completion,” Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder said. “Over late December and early January, public transport patronage reduces by up to a half, and doesn’t return to normal levels until the end of February. “Completing works over this quieter period will help to minimise the effect on rail passengers while making significant progress in a short time.” A combination of shuttle train services and replacement buses will operate along the Sunbury line while the works are carried out. Metro will also run an amended timetable across most metropolitan lines from 22 December to 26 January to accommodate the construction works. The RRL will create capacity for an extra 23 suburban and 10 regional services during each morning and evening at peak times, allowing an extra 54,000 passenger trips each day. For full details on all road and rail closures, maintenance, renewal works and information on replacement bus services can be found on www.regionalraillink.vic.gov.au or www.ptv.vic. gov.au

No snap decisions By NICOLE VALICEK PEOPLE in Hobsons Bay are being asked to think before they jump or dive from piers and jetties this summer with the risk of life-changing consequences. Nazim Erdem was 20-years-old when he dived off an Elwood pier into shallow water in an effort to impress some nearby girls. The dive resulted in a permanent spinal cord injury and left Nazim a quadriplegic for life. “It was just a bit of fun with my mates but it’s changed my life forever. You’re aware that there are risks in life

but I never thought jumping off a pier would result in an injury like this,� Nazim said. After he jumped off the pier and hit the bottom, he realised that he could not move his whole body which meant he could not resurface. Luckily he had been taught to hold his breath under water for up to three minutes. “My mates thought I was mucking around so I was under water for nearly two and a half minutes before they realised something was wrong.� Prior to his accident Nazim played Australian Rules Football and was an amateur boxer.

Following his accident, Nazim took up wheelchair rugby and competed successfully as a member of the Australian team including winning a gold medal at the 2012 London Paralympics. Each year there are 350-400 new cases of spinal cord injuries reported and nine per cent of these are caused by water-related accidents. Males aged 15-35 years are at the highest risk of acquiring a spinal cord injury, yet the most common causes of these - water/diving related activities and road accidents - are preventable. Parks Victoria in conjunction with

Independence Australia are reminding Victorians to think before they jump or dive from piers and jetties this summer to minimise the risk of spinal cord injury. Parks Victoria district chief ranger, Graeme Davis said it is an extremely dangerous practice with the conditions at Altona Pier, for example, changing quite dramatically. “The conditions are constantly changing and the consequences of jumping from a pier could result in a serious injury that will change your life forever.�

Celebrating 60 years of wedded bliss By NICOLE VALICEK A COUPLE who met by chance at a hamburger shop will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary this week. The Bedellas, of Brooklyn, will celebrate six decades of marriage on Thursday. Donald and Lorraine were married at St Andrews Church in Footscray on 12 December, 1953. The family will toast their diamond anniversary at a special function organised by their four daughters Donna, Linda, Vicki and Julie. The Bedellas met at a local hamburger hang out in Footscray. Donald, who rode a motorbike, was there with his mates and Lorraine was waiting at a nearby tram stop with her sister after tennis. “It started by talking to the motorbike boys on the way home,� she said. The couple, who moved to Brooklyn in 1954, said they have enjoyed their life and cherish their four children and eight grandchildren. Lorraine thinks back and laughs at times during their courtship when they would attend local dances together. “He went with me to the dance one night I told him to sit at the other end of the wall or no one will dance with me so he went home.� The pair has had many adventures including one memorable motorbike ride along the Great Ocean Rd. “In those days girls rode on the back of motorbikes, we went down on the Great Ocean Rd on a new motorbike and we went over the edge,� Donald said. “Luckily it was a gradual decline, we didn’t go straight down. They pulled the bike back up with other bikes and we rode back home.� When asked to share the secret to six decades of marriage the couple agreed they did not know the recipe, but that they did everything together. “I really don’t know,� Lorraine said. “He’s got patience, I haven’t,� she added. The couple are well known in the community especially for Lorraine’s work with the Lorraine Bedella Seniors Centre in Altona North, after whom it was renamed in 2004.

Tender for loving care By NICOLE VALICEK COMMUNITY managed and not-for-profit childcare providers will be invited to express interest in the management of two long day care centres in the municipality. Altona North Children’s Centre and Altona Meadows Children’s Centre could be under new management following a decision by Hobsons Bay City Council last week. Hobsons Bay Mayor Sandra Wilson said the new management arrangements for the centres would see quality childcare continue at the locations and still maintain the number of long day care places. “By introducing new providers, quality of care can be delivered to the same number of children at a lower cost to the council, freeing up funds in the budget for other services and projects,� she said. The two centres are currently run by the council. “We know how important quality childcare is to families in Hobsons Bay. “The council is committed to supporting quality early years service in Hobsons Bay.� The council will continue to house its 20 kindergarten and early year’s programs owned and maintained buildings. “We have also made a significant investment in the development of the new Newport Gardens Early Years Centre, opening in January,� councillor Wilson said. The changes to the management of the centres are due to be made in 2015.

Centre of community THE construction of the Newport Gardens Early Years Centre is now complete. Mayor of Hobsons Bay, Sandra Wilson, handed the keys to the Newport Gardens Early Years Centre to service provider Early Childhood Management Services recently.

Furniture will now be installed ahead of the centre opening in January 2014. A special Capturing the History Project wall mural, featuring memories and photographs from past and present students of the Hobsons Bay Kindergarten will also be installed at the centre.

New Oz home for Sunny By NICOLE VALICEK ALTONA resident Joanna Sherwell saved the life of her Thailand born dog Sunny and now she is fighting to bring him home. The self-confessed animal lover recently launched a fundraising campaign to bring him back to Australia. After a year of depression and grief over the loss of her two dogs and a close friend, Joanna was offered a live-in role as the Elephant Nature Park dogs manager in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The park houses 380 rescued dogs on the property and in June Joanna was asked to manage its rescue dog program. The animal conservationist is ready to come home and continue her work in animal conservation and youth development but “fell in love” with Sunny and is determined to bring him home. “There has only been one known successful dog adoption from Thailand to Australia due to the costs and level of quarantine required. “My adoption of Sunny will be the second,” she said. Sunny was a stray dog who wandered into the elephant park. He was de-sexed and vaccinated and let free to either stay at the park or wander out of the gate. “I fell in love with Sunny I realised I had found my dog, that to leave him behind and return to Australia myself would break my heart and his as well.” Joanna has contributed all of her savings and has taken out a loan to help get her four legged companion home to Australia with her. Her online fund-raising project Pozible has raised $3200 but Joanna and Sunny need more to make the adoption a reality.

Respect and thanks By NICOLE VALICEK THE hard work of volunteers in the community was praised last week during a day held to celebrate them. Hobsons Bay City Council said thanks to the wonderful contribution of all volunteers on International Volunteer Day held last Thursday. Hobsons Bay City Mayor Sandra Wilson said that recognition of the importance of volunteering would be a focus of her mayoral program. “The time volunteers put in is truly remarkable and they deserve the council’s utmost respect and thanks,” Cr Wilson said. “It is hard to imagine what

our community would be like without the hard work and dedication of so many selfless individuals and groups.” There are between 700 and 800 local community organisations in the municipality with the majority being run by dedicated teams of volunteers. She said volunteers are involved in a wide variety of activities in the community including sports, health, education, community services, environmental projects and many more. “Volunteers also directly support the council in delivering meals on wheels, providing visitor information services, planting trees and providing

transport and support for frail and elderly residents.” She said many residents also serve as volunteer committee members with organisations providing services from facilities like kindergartens and early learning centres, community centres, senior citizens centres and sporting clubs. Cr Wilson said volunteering is a great way to get involved in the community, make new friends or learn new skills. “We can all recognise the efforts of volunteers in our community. “Saying a simple ‘thank you’ to someone who volunteers can show that their work is appreciated.”

Night for giving By NICOLE VALICEK

Update chips call By NICOLE VALICEK

A LOCAL fundraising event has raised $7000 for women with breast or gynaecological cancer. Western Suburbs women were invited to attend a Girls’ Night In event held at Pia Fonsboel’s Danish furniture warehouse in Williamstown, Retropia, with local Sophie Murphy recently. More than 500 people attended the event along with 25 stall holders selling things like jewellery, plants, scarves, handbags, children’s clothes and crafts. Ms Fonsboel said the night was an overwhelming success. “The outpouring of time, energy, donations and attendance was tremendous.”

This is something that is very close to our hearts ... and is why the night was done with such passion, love and enthusiasm …

PET shelters receive the highest number of unidentified animals during the summer’s months leaving large numbers of owners uncontactable and dogs and cats displaced from homes. Altona resident and veterinarian Caroline Butler from The Lost Dogs’ Home said this December all pet owners are encouraged to get on top of their pet’s identification. Ms Butler said each year, thousands of lost animals are brought to shelters across Australia without identification, or carrying identification with outdated contact details. “Dogs are more prone to es-

caping as summer storms and fireworks - especially backyard fireworks - send many dogs scampering for the streets in a panic. “It’s also cat breeding season, a time when we are always inundated with cats - many unidentified and in need of a home.” She said this makes it difficult and sometimes impossible for shelter staff to contact their owners and for owners to find their pets. “I see the result of inadequately identified animals every day.” “(It) is stressful and heartbreaking for everyone concerned - for the owners, animals and our shelter staff.”

She said a large percentage of dogs arriving at the shelter are now micro chipped, but pet owners not maintaining current details on identification is a problem. “Pet owners need to ask themselves whether their pet is identified with a chip or collar ID tag and if so, are the contact details up-to-date.” “By doing this, pet owners are helping prevent the heartache of a lost pet.” Visit ChipChecker stations on Saturday 15 December at Cyril Curtain Reserve, Williamstown, from 9am to 11am and Apex Park, Altona, from 1pm to 3pm.

Ms Fonsboel said cancer had been a marking event for the family, and there was a serious reason to raise funds for the Cancer Council and to raise awareness of women’s cancers. Two years ago Ms Fonsboel’s mother Karin Falkenberg, who attended the night was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy. “This is something that is very close to our hearts at Retropia and is why the night was done with such passion, love and enthusiasm.” Ms Fonsboel said most of the women who attended knew someone battling breast cancer, supporting family who have been through and are now breast cancer survivors, but also awareness to all the women to have regular check-ups.” “The more money and awareness that is raised through events like this one held at Retropia will ultimately save lives and that is so important.”

Cash plans for Christmas use the Amount Over or Under field to track how closely the budget is being adhered to.

THE holiday season is always an expensive time of year and the pressure on the family budget can almost get too much. The best Christmas is a Christmas that people can afford. Those who want to put their Christmas finances on track should apply a well-planned budget and a healthy dose of cost-cutting measures.

this figure as the overall holiday spending limit. 2. Set a spending limit for each area of holiday spending. Create a holiday spending worksheet then run through the list of holiday expenses gifts, decorations, holiday foods, in the first column, and set a budget for each area of spending.

4. Tweak the budget to cover any instances of overspending. Don’t panic if there is overspend in one of the categories, just scale the spending back in another category to make up for it.

1. Determine what can be afforded. Look over finances, and determine how much money there is for holiday-related purchases. Set

3. Track spending throughout the season. Keep a running total of purchases in the Actual Spending column of the worksheet. Then,

Some valuable tips * Big gift lists tend to lead to big bills. Whittle the list down to the people who matter most. Send Christmas cards to everyone else.

* It’s easier to spend money during the holidays, but it’s also easier to earn money during the holidays. Find ways to cover Christmas expenses as they arise so there is no need to play catch up later. For example pick up extra work or work overtime. * When working with a tight deadline it’s easy to overspend. Start Christmas shopping before the holiday decorations even go up, and there will be plenty of time to shop around for the best deals. 1111177-PB50-13

Try some games to break the ice at your Christmas function.

Party time for the office OFFICE Christmas parties can be awkward and boring when everyone gravitates toward the people they already know. However, the festive function is an opportunity for management to create unity among colleagues and ultimately improving interoffice relations. Playing games at the office Christmas party may seem cheesy and juvenile but it helps co-workers become more comfortable with one another and creates a fun atmosphere. Add humour to the party with some funny employee awards. Co-workers will work together to decide who is worthy of each prize and have fun joking about everyone’s quirks in the office. Write up and print off some award certificates on a com-

puter in advance, including one “for always being late to meetings” and “for never being in her cubicle.” Have co-workers nominate one another, and then proudly present awards to the workers with the most votes. “Who Am I?” is an exciting game that will get the whole office laughing together as they guess who their character is. Grab a handful of sticky notes and scribble down a famous celebrity or well-known character onto each one. Everyone gets a note stuck onto their back, and they must ask their colleagues questions about who their person is. The game ends when everyone has correctly managed to guess the character on the note on their back. Discover which person in

the office is the biggest film buff with a Famous Movie OneLiners game. It’s a quiz about quotes from well-known movies. Prepare a list of movie quotes in advance, such as “I’ll be back” from The Terminator. At the party, read each of them out loud and have everyone write down which movie they think that quote is from. For an interactive experience try a game of Employee Trivia. A few days before the party, send a memo to the office workers attending the party asking them to email a few bits of trivia about themselves. Trivia should relate to Christmas in this case. Create a sheet whereby workmates need to match trivia to the name of their colleagues.

BUILDERS SET TO WELCOME PERMIT CUTS

ESTHER LAUAKI

BUILDERS’ headaches could be relieved under new building standards announced last week. Builders will no longer need to apply for planning permits to build lower height boundary walls on new homes, thanks to a new Victorian Coalition Government initiative. The move aims to cut some of the red tape to save builders and families time and money, boost house affordability and create reforms that align regulatory standards with today’s building practises. Minister for Planning Matthew Guy announced in a statement that under the new reformed building standards, boundary walls of new homes or extensions will have further setbacks and greater heights allowed without the need for a permit. “The Coalition Government continues to redefine planning and building controls for Victoria by delivering common sense reforms that drive better outcomes. “These reforms will save time and money for builders, councils and Victorian families as they build their new homes,” Mr Guy said. Mr Guy said the new rules will be included into Victoria Planning Provisions and align the law with current building practices while cutting back unnecessary red tape. “This is about bringing our planning processes in line with modern building practices and expectations among home buyers saving everyone time and money,” Mr Guy said. The average height of a boundary wall allowed without a planning permit will be increased from 3.0 to 3.2 metres under the reform.

The maximum height of boundary walls is unchanged at 3.6 metres. Neighbours will be notified of any application to exceed boundary wall average or maximum heights, as per existing requirements.

The increase to boundary wall setbacks will allow for adequate fascia and guttering, and the boundary wall height change will enable builders to use ‘waffle pods’ for laying a concrete slab on the

ground promoting efficiency and reducing waste, meet homeowner desires for higher 2.7 metre ceilings rather than 2.4 metres, and allow the construction of garages under the same roof line as the house.

MASTERPLANNED DEVELOPMENT

winner

MARRIOTT WATERS VILLAWOOD PROPERTIES AND MARRIOTT FAMILY CREATING a genuine sense of community and place is the idea behind the Marriott Waters development in Lyndhurst. The joint venture between the Marriott Family and Villawood Properties is the winner in the UDIA Masterplanned Development category. The partnership has taken what was a flood prone problem site and a run of the mill development plan and transformed it into an innovative masterplanned design with interconnecting wetlands. Marriott Waters is now a highly

sought-after community, with many different housing choices for residents. The sustainable development includes 27 hectares of wetlands and parklands, recycled water as well as access to transport, education, fibre optic network, sporting facilities, retail outlets and a residents’ club. The site is located in a regional ‘low spot’ with a significant external catchment from the north, east and south. Creatively designed with extensive wetlands, there is a network of walking and cycling paths, playgrounds, picnic and barbecue facilities, unique

public art and sculptures, the exclusive residents’ only Club Marriott and the new Marriott Waters Shopping Centre. The design focused on achieving a network of roads, footpaths and shared paths to provide residents and visitors with safe, attractive and well-connected roads and paths linking the key elements of the estate. The vision for Marriott Waters was for high quality contemporary house designs and the design of the shopping centre precinct with its main street theory, complements the open space created by the wetlands.

RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF MORE THAN 250 LOTS

winner

MITCHELL’S RUN DACLAND PTY LTD MITCHELL’S Run is a development which successfully integrates with the natural landscape surrounding it. The site in Doreen is the worthy winner of the Residential Development- more than 250 lots category. The motto of ‘A Real Sense of Place’ perfectly describes the new community, which is characterised by picturesque views and informal parkland. From the entrance to the development, among parkland and river red gums, it is clear the focus of Mitchell’s Run is to establish an informal residential development with a focus on nature. Aboriginal scar trees, creek reserve,

undulating topography and views to the ranges have been retained in the development, allowing the surrounding landscape to provide the character of the estate. The developer, Dacland, has ensured that no residential lot is more than 300 metres from any number of the estate’s parks and open spaces and has been designed to link with neighbouring estates. Mitchell’s Run is pedestrian friendly from the front entrance to the network of quiet street and parks, and linkages are proposed with future developments to the north and south. A diverse mix of lot sizes (ranging

from 300 square metres to 2500 square metres) attracts a range of home buyers and encourages a wide range of building styles. Each home must meet a 5-star energy rating as standard from the commencement of Mitchell’s Run. The architectural styles are reflected in the objectives of the Mitchell’s Run Design Guidelines, focusing on diversity of materials and building styles. The estate is centrally located and is a key link for several north-south collector roads and public transport links for Doreen and surrounding suburbs.

Awards FOR EXCELLENCE 2013

RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT 250 LOTS OR FEWER

commendation

OAKTREE RISE BERNLY INVESTMENTS PTY LTD OAKTREE Rise estate is a unique offering in the property market, providing home buyers with the opportunity to build sustainable homes at the centre of an established rural township. Set in the picturesque suburb of Narre Warren North, the estate consists of 149 elevated residential lots, a boutique retail strip and community hub constructed astride t he restored Troups Creek and new Central Park. The estate also provides local retail, active recreation opportunities and sustainable transport options servicing not only new residents, but the greater community of Narre Warren North.

HIGH DENSITY

Prior to the estate’s development, there was no clearly defined town centre in Narre Warren North. The development was instrumental in the realisation of local planning policy set out in the Narre Warren North Township Strategy. It is these aspects and many others that have seen the estate awarded commendation in the ‘residential development 250 lots or fewer’ category. The estate was designed with a key aim of blending the development into the existing township of Narre Warren North, while preserving and enhancing the existing feel.

During the planning process, community consultation was held with local residents, council and the developers. The feedback from the consultation process helped inform the overall design of the subdivision, gained community buy-in to the layout of Central Park and shaped the successful relocation of the heritage oak trees, from which the site gets its name, along the Avenue of Honour. In recent years, Narre Warren has experienced strong population growth across all markets and Oaktree Rise has been well received, with a waiting list for future releases.

joint winners

WATERVIEW AND THE EDGE APARTMENTS

FIFTY ALBERT HAMTON FIFTY Albert’s unique design echoes the eclectic nature of the South Melbourne skyline. The High Density Development category joint winner is a 30-storey, mixed-use development which offers its residents a luxurious lifestyle in one of Melbourne’s most prestigious South Melbourne locations. Fifty Albert is a mixed-use development comprising 282 residential apartments, which range in size from 50.5sqm to 164.5sqm. This includes 84 one-bedroom apartments, 190 two-bedroom apartments and eight three-bedroom apartments - with two of the latter being double-storey.

VIEW APARTMENTS PTY LTD Fifty Albert’s apartments all feature luxury fittings including stainless steel appliances and designer European appliances in the bathrooms. The kitchen consists of timber veneer with stone benchtops and splashbacks, while all apartment robes feature a grey mirror finish. Hamton Property Group, the developer, is focused on selecting great innercity locations in Melbourne, and Fifty Albert is no exception. The building is located perfectly on the eastern entry to Albert Road from St Kilda Road, one of Melbourne’s most characteristic urban boulevards, within a rich and vibrant precinct.

WATERVIEW and The Edge Apartments defied all odds to be named joint winner of the High Density section of the annual UDIA awards, despite the initial opposition it faced. These apartments achieve a balance between density and liveability and capture both the city and water views. Each building entrance offers an expansive and well-decorated lobby area which creates an ideal first impression and adds to the comfort and liveability of these apartments. Throughout the construction of the apartments, developers gave huge consideration to the value of views from the towers. The layout and form strongly

engage views such as Harbour Park, Edgewater Lake and Jack’s Wood. It is conveniently located only a short walk to many Maribyrnong amenities. The site enjoys excellent pedestrian and cycling accessibility, with easy access between ’the apartments’ and key points of interest along Edgewater Boulevard. Extensive links along the Maribyrnong River are also a major feature of these apartments, including paths to Pipemakers Park and Highpoint Shopping Centre. Connections to the Federation Trail are located less than 100 metres down the road with a high quality bicycle track also close by.

Awards FOR EXCELLENCE 2013 commendations

YARRA POINT MIRVAC STRATEGICALLY located and wellestablished in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, Yarra Point apartments have been recognised for their excellence with a commendation award for High Density. Located on a 5200 square metre site, Yarra Point houses a diverse mix of bedroom dwellings and has sealed its place as one of Melbourne’s most elite waterfront communities. Following an eight-year break, Mirvac re-entered Melbourne’s apartment market with a bang when it developed Yarra Point apartments. The towers are now home to almost

38C AVENUE PROJECTS 2000 residents and in addition to its convenient location and unforgettable views of the city, the towers boast extra privileges such as a residents lounge, business centre, gym and herb and vegetable garden. Yarra Point is well connected to various popular precincts throughout the city, including South Wharf, South Gate and the East side of the Crown Entertainment complex. Throughout the design process of Yarra Point, a number of components were considered such as tower form, urban context and building footprint.

AVENUE Projects has touted 38 Camberwell Road as its benchmark marketing tool since its completion in May 2013, and not without reason. The building debuted on the market in 2011 and was sold to a mix of owner-occupiers and investors, with over 70 per cent of the apartments sold prior to construction in early 2012. The Hawthorn East development is situated on a prominent corner between Camberwell Junction and the vibrant shopping centres of Glenferrie and Auburn Road and offers 53 apartments over five levels. Each apartment enjoys high quality finishes, expansive indoor and outdoor living spaces

and an envied location. The design also includes basement car parking for all units to minimise the impact of parking on the site plan, with access via Auburn Grove rather than the busy Camberwell Road thoroughfare. Avenue Projects has also integrated disabled access into the building’s design while also using architectural variation to break down the length of the building in both streetscapes. In addition, the development has enhanced the public realm through maintaining the alignment of the Auburn Grove footpath and retaining the existing trees adjacent to the site.

The Islington Silos Winner, UDIA Awards 2013 Urban Renewal Category — Blue Earth Group We have an unfaltering commitment to think imaginatively, treat challenges as opportunities, and embrace creativity in every sphere of activity, all to make a lasting contribution to the built environment forever. blueearth.com.au

AFFORDABLE DEVELOPMENT

winner

205 GIPPS COMMON EQUITY HOUSING LIMITED BANBURY VILLAGE CEDAR WOODS PROPERTIES LTD BANBURY Village is an exciting new chapter in the remarkable history of Footscray. Property developer Cedar Woods has exceeded the local community’s and authorities’ expectations, in creating a vibrant village that is one with the surrounding community. The site was formerly used by the Olympic Tyre and Rubber Company and subsequently, South Pacific Tyres as its head office and factory, and presented an opportunity to deliver on state and local planning urban consolidation objectives - leading to the top prize in the Medium

URBAN RENEWAL

Density category, and a commendation for Urban Renewal. Banbury Village has established itself as the premier residential address in the inner west and has also been recognised by the former Department of Planning and Community Development as a notable example of industrial design heritage conversion. It features a major park that is unparalleled in the inner west, and key urban design principles include rear loaded dwellings on major thoroughfares to improve streetscapes, walk-ability and parking; strong design elements; and way-finding signage at key decision points.

winner

A 59-UNIT apartment and townhouse project at 205 Gipps Street Abbotsford that blends social and private housing has been hailed a resounding success by tenants and owners. Using a co-operative housing model, not-for-profit developer Common Equity Housing Limited invests profits from the sale of the project’s 34 private apartments to ensure its 25 social housing apartments are affordable to low-income tenants. The result is five storeys of high-quality apartments in three neighbouring buildings - the penthouse storeys tastefully set back behind a reinforced heritage facade of the former boot factory/warehouse. Deciduous trees in the complex’s landscaped internal courtyard shade the

URBAN RENEWAL

apartments in summer and allow more natural light in winter. At least half of the social housing dwellings are made available to people on the public housing waiting list. Six disability apartments were bought by the Transport Accident Commission and Summer Foundation. The rent is linked to income; residents pays no more than 25 per cent of their pension/ income on rent, or more than 75 per cent of the market rate for one and two bedroom apartments in the area. The private apartments were sold despite a saturated market of more than 1,500 available apartments in Abbotsford and resistance from buyers investing in a social housing setting.

commendation

ISLINGTON SILOS BLUE EARTH GROUP BANBURY VILLAGE CEDAR WOODS PROPERTIES LTD ISLINGTON Silos, a residential conversion of the former James Hood Malthouse and associated silos, in Collingwood’s iconic Islington Street has won the Urban Renewal award for 2013. The complex is protected by a Heritage Overlay in the Yarra Planning Scheme, and the statement of significance for the buildings attributes their historical value to their function and age, rather than aesthetic or architectural value. The Silos offer 21 three-bedroom apartments over 11 storeys. At ground level is a gymnasium and an apartment with a large terrace. Each of the 10 levels above provides two apartments separated by the central lift core.

Two impressive glass penthouses are perched at the ‘crown’ of the silos, creating the illusion of floating forms. The soft curves of the building feature large glass walls, capturing stunning views and lending an ethereal juxtaposition. The spacious floor plans allow for generous airflow and an enviable 360 degrees vantage, ensuring apartments are filled with constant stream of natural light. Although not within an activity centre this site is very close to significant concentrations of commercial, recreation and entertainment facilities along Victoria Parade, Hoddle Street, Brunswick Street and other strip centres. It is also very convenient to a variety of transport routes, schools and community facilities.

DEVELOPER Cedar Woods had a responsibility to ensure the values and features of one of the western suburb’s best urban renewal sites were integrated into the final design and benefited the local community. Banbury Village, Footscray, integrates seamlessly with the surrounding area, while also delivering a variety of housing to meet market expectations. To achieve this, Cedar Woods had to deal with, and manage a host of issues including: a harsh interface on three sides; the condition of the heritage buildings and the extent of the hazardous materials to be dealt with; and a range of

buyer profiles and the specific needs of an eclectic community. The feedback Cedar Woods has had from its customers has been overwhelmingly positive, leading to many referral and repeat sales. The developer believes this is of enormous benefit in the long-run with referral sales, positive local council and government relationships, a high level of staff satisfaction through taking pride in their work and – of course – an enhanced corporate reputation. All of this has helped establish Banbury Village as the premier residential address in Melbourne’s innerwest.

winner

HIGHETT MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT, WOLWORTHS (FABCOT PTY LTD)

DANDENONG LOGIS ECOINDUSTRIAL BUSINESS PARK PLACES VICTORIA AND MELBOURNE WATER DANDENONG LOGIS has transformed a contaminated, disused site into an environmental showpiece. The 154-hectare industrial business park has received this year’s Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Environmental Excellence award. The Dandenong Treatment Plant in Dandenong South closed in 1996, leaving behind highlycontaminated soil. In November 2005, the State Government announced a $150 million, fouryear land reclamation project to transform the 180 hectares into a bustling commercial and residential hub. The first land at LOGIS South, to the south of Greens Road, was released in 2009 and

LOGIS North land, between Dandenong Bypass and Greens Road, was first released in 2011. There’s a regional wetland for stormwater treatment, rainwater tanks, native plants and mature trees to promote birdlife and wildlife access to Dandenong Creek, Class A recycled water to every lot, solar hot water and natural ventilation, and mulch made from recycled shipping pallets. There are more than 20 hectares of open space for recreation and LOGIS is the first industrial development in Victoria to introduce T5 energy efficient street lighting. Posts feature twin lamps that activate when the roads are busy and reduce to one active lamp when road usage decreases.

AN EXCELLENT model for future mixed-use development, the concepts used in this particular site have not been seen in the Awards for Excellence submissions before. The emerging trend of apartments above the retail environment has been done well with a clear delineation between residential and retail. Circulation and access have been well handled

with the apartments having separate entry foyers and the loading facilities are entirely within the ground level built form. Rubbish zones were relocated to a concealed section and creating a landscape buffer to adjoining residences. Of particular note were the storage cages which, unusually, were located on the same floor as the apartments, with obvious benefits for residents.

MELBOURNE WATER RECOGNITION (FABCOT PTY LTD) AWARD

winner

MARRIOTT WATERS VILLAWOOD PROPERTIES VILLAWOOD has worked hard to redesign a very basic stormwater system with a ‘bottom of the drain’ retarding basin, into a well integrated wetland and floodway system. They have taken drainage from two catchments beyond the site and created a major feature of the estate which now forms part of a larger walking path system. Delivery of Class A recycled water was brought forward

LANDSCAPE AWARD

through the developer’s negotiations with the local water authority. A temporary above ground tank was installed as a holding tank for residents during peak times until the supply of recycled water became a permanent facility. Over 20% of the site has been devoted to the waterways and parks, the wetlands significantly reducing the risk of flooding in the low-lying area.

NAPOLI Park is not only beautiful; it is a multifunctional space of 1.8 hectares which has been provided early in the development of the Providence Estate. It is infused with many contemporary Australian elements. It is broken up into active and passive areas with a mix of walking paths through gardens, seating, protected spaces and opportunities for community and

MEDIA AWARD

family gatherings. While containing all the appearances of a rich, exotic and layered environment, Napoli Park is actually designed to minimise maintenance, for example galvanised steel roofing treated in ‘Liquid Rust’ paint creates a themed effect while being a simple installation. It features art by mosaic artist Davia McMillan, which sit comfortably in the environment.

winner

TRACT TRACT produced a study for The (Melbourne) Magazine which measured the liveability of Melbourne’s suburbs, according to 14 criteria. The article produce very

Christmas Gift Ideas

Tuesday, 10 December, 2013 Page 29

A Star Advertising Feature

Costume parties are the fashion FANCY dress or costume parties are a worldwide tradition. This year revellers may decide to host or attend a themed party which requires them to dress up. Here are some fun costume tips for the next festive fancy affair. Some people might choose a specific theme or period in time, such as colonial, pirate, regency and cowboy. Anyone who is invited to a fancy dress Christmas function should ask the host if there is a specific theme for

dress. Christmas costume parties can incorporate any choice of costume. You can dress as Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helper, a reindeer, Christmas tree or pixies. Santa is the obvious choice, but you can opt for anything else seasonal, for example a Grinch or a gift, a Barbie Doll or racing car driver, providing the costume is available or easy to make. Parties might be themed on the 1920s era of the gangster, where guests dress as Al Capone, Dutch Shultz and Jack Diamond.

A mol is the girlfriend or wife of a mobster. Guests attending parties that centre around the 1920s can use other accessories like Tommy guns, spats and fedora hats. Always choose safe and comfortable costumes for kids. Being the end of the school year there are many fancy dress events coming up for children including the school assemblies or end of year Christmas show. There are lovely ways

to dress small children for a Christmas theme, as lambs or fairies, angels or their favourite fairy tale character. For more generic themes they might choose to be dressed as sunflowers, bumble bees and butterflies. Be sure to pay close attention to comfort and safety. Always check that the outfit is free of any loose buttons, broken zippers or any other faulty accessories that may be hazardous to the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety. Fancy Dress for couples and groups

can play with the theme. No matter what the theme, guests arriving as couples or in groups may consider dressing to a similar theme. Famous couples is a popular theme to dress for like Bonnie and Clyde, Mary and Joseph or Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. At a futuristic themed party with the wife and kids why not dress up as The Jetsons. Collaborating with friends can make the experience more fun and costumes more interesting.

Great cake A picture of the most glorious looking cake caught my eye in That’s Life magazine the other day and, on reading the recipe, I couldn’t believe how simple it was to make. So I whipped one up while staying at my mum’s place and it was so moist and crumbly and divine, we couldn’t stop eating it. It’s a great standby for afternoon tea when friends pop by in the lead up to Christmas, or serve it warm on Christmas Day with caramel sauce and a scoop of ice cream, as a delicious (but less time consuming) twist on the traditional plum pudding. It’s suitable to freeze, and as it’s an oil-based cake, there’s no mucking around with electric beaters or creaming butter and sugar.

WESTPOINT

As always, if you have any recipes, tips or other info you’d like to share, email me at sarah@howdypartnersmedia.com.au

EASY APPLE CAKE 2 cups plain flour 2 teaspoons each baking powder and ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon bicarb 1 cup raw caster sugar (I used regular white caster sugar) 400g can slice apple pie fruit 2 eggs ¾ cup rice bran oil (I used canola oil) 1/3 cup each sultanas and chopped pecans (these are optional) Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius (160 degrees fan forced). Line a 22 cm round cake pan with baking paper. Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon and bicarb into a bowl. Add sugar, apples, eggs and oil. Stir mixture until well combined. Fold through sultanas and pecans. Spoon mixture into pan. Bake for one hour and ten minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Cool in pan for ten minutes before turning onto a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar, or serve warm with caramel sauce and ice cream. CARAMEL SAUCE: Place one cup each thickened cream and brown sugar and 60g butter into a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until butter has melted. Cook a further four to five minutes or until thickened slightly. This is the last Food Byte column for the year.

TAYLORS Hill boxing sensation Jake Ellis has never had to work as hard as he has been over the past six weeks. Ellis has been keeping himself busy in preparation for ‘Once Upon a Time in Sunshine II’ - an event he’s not only organising as promoter, but also fighting in himself. Six days a week Ellis will get some training done in the morning before suiting up to run some errands for the promotion. After a long day of gym visits, poster runs, paying bills and ticket drop offs, Ellis then puts his gloves back on once more and resumes preparations for his third professional bout. “It’s just hard in the sense that if I was to promote, that’s all I’d do and if I was to only fight on the night then that’s all I’d do, and obviously I have my school and all that which is another added pressure,” Ellis explained. “But when you’re doing both it’s very hard. “You’re pretty much, from nine to five, dressed in nice attire going around doing promoting errands, and then once five o’clock hits you have to glove up and become a boxer. “It is very mentally draining and stressful, especially thinking that I’m trying to prepare for a fight when all this other stuff is coming through. But I’m sure it’ll all pay off.” So far undefeated in the ring, Ellis has developed a keen ambition to master the promoting game as well. Ellis’s previous event, his first ‘Once Upon a Time in Sunshine’ promotion, drew nearly 500 people back in August. While that night proved a raging success, Ellis hopes this time around it will be even bigger. “I was shy by about 30 or 40 people from the joint being full,” he said. “I pulled about 500 people, so there was a lot of real positive feedback from everyone. “It was by far my best promotion I’ve ever done, and that’s why I’ve actually felt confident enough to both promote and fight on the same night.”

The Western Foxes recently won the Women’s Vic Bowl in convincing fashion over the Picture: MATHEW LYNN Northern Lady Raiders. 90209

Crusaders dominate grid By ADEM SARICAOGLU THE Western Crusaders Gridiron Club has never quite had a day like it. Last weekend the Footscray-based club provided for a clean sweep of Vic Bowl titles - claiming both the Junior and Women’s Vic Bowl championships in dominant fashion. “It was a massive day for the club,” Crusaders president Scott Hayden said. “To win two grand finals in one day - it was an amazing day for the club, and both teams did their club proud.” First up the Western Foxes women’s team, coached by Hayden, cruised to a comfortable 32-8 win over the Northern Lady Raiders.

Then later in the day in front of a very healthy and vocal crowd at Croydon’s Ranger Field, the Crusaders’ junior team completed the club double with a comprehensive 38-0 shutout of the Monash Warriors. “The juniors have been dominant all year,” Hayden said. “They had one blip on their radar when they dropped their last game of the season. “But then they rebounded strongly in the semi-final and won 60-0 and then came back in the grand final and just killed it.” In one day of football the club almost doubled its trophy count - adding to the Crusaders’ three senior men’s titles. Hayden told Star these latest triumphs provided for one of

the most significant days in the club’s history. “It’s right up there,” he said. “When you talk the biggest days for the club, you’re talking like 1999, when we won our first senior men’s grand final, 2000 when we went back-toback and then in 2007 where we went undefeated. “But this day is right up there with those three, I reckon.” The Crusaders’ senior men’s team finished fifth earlier in the year with a 7-5 record under coach Kriss Guidotti, and will be looking to improve on that record when the 2014 season kicks off next year. Pre-season training will commence in late January at the club’s Henry Turner Reserve base.

Sport Exum’s in demand Sunshine & Western Region Sports Club Inc.

Don Deeble

Rising

star By LIAM TWOMEY SPORTING fans around the world are starting to catch on to the talents of Western Suburbs’ local Dante Exum. The Seabrook resident and Keilor Basketball Association junior is touted as a top five draft pick if he decides to nominate for next year’s NBA draft. If not, he will have a host of college recruiters desperate to secure his services. However, Exum’s astonishing exploits on the court are coming as no surprise to members of the Sunshine Western Region Sports Club.

The 18-year-old is one of hundreds of young athletes from the Western Suburbs who have been nominated for the club’s prestigious Don Deeble Rising Star Award which is sponsored by the Yarraville Club Cricket Club. Each month, one nominee receives $1000 towards achieving their sporting goals while at the award’s grand final, the overall winner is given $5000. On top of that, two runners-up also receive $2500. Sixteen athletes were nominated from June 2012 to November 2013 and are all in contention for the upcoming grand final which will be held in January. Sunshine Western Region Sports Club vice-president Barry Watson is rapt with the standard of nominees the award attracts. “We all are thrilled that he (Exum) is continuing to climb the ladder in basketball,” Watson said. “What an extraordinary effort if

he gets into the top five draft picks. Cecil (Dante’s father) and the family will be so thrilled.” Exum isn’t the only former Don Deeble Rising Star Award winner to be turning heads around the world. Point Cook’s Rachel Jarry secured a WNBA Title with the Minnesota Lynx this year while Werribee’s Jess Cameron is one of Australia’s leading female cricketers. “Rachel and Jess have been outstanding and have great careers ahead,” Watson said. “We all hope and wish them well. The Western Suburbs are producing some outstanding talent and with programs like what’s happening at Maribyrnong (College), let’s hope we keep seeing these youngsters with these talents continue to come through.” Watson also highlighted the amazing contribution of Yarraville Club Cricket Club in providing sponsorship for the award.

“Yarraville Club Cricket Club is unique,” he said. “What other club do we know of that would support such a great cause? “We know the parents are so appreciative of this support and with many athletes travelling the globe, the Yarraville Club Cricket Club contribution cannot be underestimated.” To nominate a junior athlete for the Don Deeble Rising Star Award, contact starsport@starnewsgroup. com.au or call 9933 4800. “We certainly encourage all athletes, coaches and parents to email their respective sons’, daughters’, friends’ or kids’ achievements (age bracket 13-20),” Watson said. “There are a number of ways, even if not nominated for a monthly award, that they can be helped. “Any athlete travelling and having to pay costs can be supported by our club.”

Dante Exum is gaining worldwide attention for his efforts on the basketball court. 75953 Picture: KRISTIAN SCOTT

Don Deeble Rising Star Nominees January 2013 - May 2013 Nomination Details The Don Deeble Rising Star Award recognises young athletes in the Western Suburbs who have achieved outstanding results at a state and national level. The monthly winner of the Don Deeble award receives $1000, a trophy donated by Ascot Vale Sports and a pair of New Balance runners. The overall winner of the award receives $5000 while the two runners up each receive $2500. Each year the Yarraville Club Cricket Club donates $20,000 to the award.

The top Dogs Gulls sign young gun By LIAM TWOMEY By LIAM TWOMEY FOOTSCRAY walked away from the Premier Cricket Bush Bash round with two important victories to maintain its place at the top end of the ladder. The Bush Bash sees teams travel to a country location throughout the state and play in two Twenty20 fixtures on the day. Footscray’s first match came against Essendon in Port Fairy with the Bulldogs being sent in to bat by the Bombers and it didn’t take the batsmen long to find their feet at the crease. Despite the early loss of Dylan Kight, the combination of Dean Russ (21), Travis Dean (32) and Michael Hill (33) helped lift the score to 8/124 after 20 overs. In reply, Brent McMinn almost dragged his side to victory with a powerful 37 from 26 balls. The knock included three fours and two sixes. However, McMinn couldn’t get enough help from his fellow batsmen and the Footscray bowlers took charge with Essendon finishing at 7/116. There wasn’t much time to celebrate the win, with the Bulldogs’ next clash starting almost immediately against Prahran. Again batting first, the combination of Russ (32) and Dean (35) showed their talents to get the innings off to a fast start. After missing out in the first

Dean Russ led his side to two victories on the weekend. 93349 Picture: DAMIAN VISENTINI match, Kight also had a point to prove and was the pick of the batsmen on his way to 50 runs off 49 balls as Footscray posted 3/138. In reply, Prahran looked in trouble throughout its innings as wickets continued to tumble before an impressive lower order fight back kept the match alive. Sam Coates made 20 off 18 balls while James Miller blasted 39 from 36.

WILLIAMSTOWN pulled off another recruiting strike last week as it continues to build an imposing list for the 2014 VFL season. The Seagulls secured the signature of Kane Lambert from the Northern Blues. Lambert is as one of the biggest off-season signings in the VFL with the star midfielder crossing over after winning the Fothergill-Round Medal as the most promising young talent in the VFL. He was widely tipped to be drafted in either last month’s national or rookie drafts but was overlooked. As well as claiming the Fothergill-Round Medal, Lambert was selected in the Victorian State Team, made the VFL Team of the Year, came fourth in the Liston Trophy and took out the Northern Blues bestand-fairest award. Seagulls football manager Chris Dixon was delighted to have secured Lambert’s signature. “He’s a quality character and a quality player,” Dixon said. “We were as surprised as anyone when he wasn’t picked up by an AFL club. Everyone is well aware of his talent at this level having been judged the most promising player in the competition and almost winning the Liston. “We’ll be doing everything we can to help get Kane on to an AFL list but if it doesn’t hap-

Despite the late charge, the Footscray bowlers were able to maintain their nerve as Prahran fell five runs short. The two wins see the Bulldogs sit in outright second on the Premier Cricket ladder with an 8-2 win/loss record for the season. In another double-header round of matches this week, Footscray will take on Melbourne and Geelong.

and the second half of the season at full back. “We’re excited to have him (Clouston) and we think it’s a good fit,” Dixon said. “We were after a key forward and think that Scott can provide that for us. He has a great set of hands and a beautiful long kick so I’m sure our supporters will enjoy watching him play.” Werribee head coach John Lamont said the loss of Clouston would create opportunities on his playing list. “This is disappointing, but it gives another person at our club an opportunity, and that is what our club is about,” he said. “We want players who are committed, dedicated and loyal to the club, the team and their team-mates.”

pen we’re hoping he’ll have a long and distinguished VFL career at Burbank Oval.” With Williamstown having already signed two players from the Northern Blues this offseason (Adam Marcon and Tim Currie) the Seagulls will need to reach an agreement with the Blues to get the deal officially over the line. Lambert will be joined at Williamstown by Scott Clouston, who is crossing over from Werribee. Clouston still had one year to run on his contract at Werribee however, the two parties came to an agreement which saw the deal done last week. Clouston finished fourth in the Tigers’ best-and-fairest after spending the first half of the year forward

League goes national THE long and bitter National Premier League saga that has plagued Victorian football has finally been resolved, with Football Federation Australia confirming it will go ahead next season. The FFA stepped in to resolve the long-running dispute between Football Federation Victoria and a group of co-signatory clubs - confirming on Friday the go-ahead for the NPL nearly four weeks after clubs were told to prepare for the Victorian rollout at a meeting in mid-November. The agreement has also put an end to Supreme Court proceedings between the FFV and the co-signatory clubs. “The NPL is an integral part of our national elite player pathway and a hugely important reform of the semi-professional tier of Australian football,” FFA CEO David Gallop said in Friday’s statement. “FFV and its clubs have worked through many issues and agreed on an NPL model that’s now a benchmark nationally in many areas.”

South Melbourne’s Nick Galatas welcomed the news on behalf of the clubs. “The clubs have always wanted Victoria to be part of the NPL in 2014 and now we’ll apply for licences, work as quickly as we can to meet the criteria and get on with implementation,” Galatas said. “The clubs are looking forward to being part of the NPL which promises to deliver outcomes that are in the best interests of football in Victoria.” Established clubs who snubbed the original FFV model for the NPL, including Melbourne Knights, Green Gully and Altona Magic, can now re-apply for the new league. Under the newly-revised model, the implementation of a potential two-division structure will depend on the number of successful applicants. As proposed by the clubs at the November meeting, allocation of the successful applicants will be subject to their placing at the end of the 2013 Victorian Premier League and State League competitions.

KEVIN HILLIER

For the love of the game IS loyalty dying at local football level? I ask this because of a few events I have heard about in recent weeks. One involves a playing group getting the coach the sack because they did not like his style. Another involves a player who agreed to play for one club, who got him employment, then reneged when offered more money by a rival club. I believe he kept the job. Player power to this degree is not healthy for the game, when they can dictate terms, walk out on contracts and control the big picture at a club, it is akin to the lunatics running the asylum. Clubs that allow this to happen are going to pay the price in the future. Green Gully celebrates its 2011 grand final win over Oakleigh in the now defunct Victorian Premier League. 69919 Picture: EMILY LANE There will also be no promotion or relegation between the NPL and State League clubs for three seasons. However, NPL clubs will be subject to promotion and relegation within a two-tier structure - if implemented.

Other NPL requirements include the appointment of a technical director for each club and the implementation of seven under-age teams from under-12s through to under20s. By 2015, all NPL clubs must also field an under-17s boy’s team.

THE Bulldogs made the news last week after making a few changes to the structure of its cheer squad. While I understand the emotive reaction from the long-standing members of the cheer squad the club has every right to take control of how the cheer squad is run. The cheer squad belongs to the club not any individuals. Gary, Lorraine and David have done a great job over a long period of time but it is not their cheer squad. They have not been sacked from the club. I no longer host the president’s lunch nor the best-and-fairest, which I did for over a decade. Look at the history of current president of the club Peter Gordon, he is a great example of putting his love for the club above anything else. It might be a cliche, but the club is bigger than any individual. I HAVE to say I was surprised to hear Ryan Griffen named as Bulldogs captain last week. I did a function with him on Monday night and he gave no indication what was about to be announced the next day. ‘Griffo’ is an interesting choice because to be honest, I don’t see him as a natural leader, but obviously Brendan McCartney sees something else. There is no doubt he leads by example on the field as he is one of the elite players of the game. In retrospect I didn’t think Matty Boyd was a natural leader either and I was wrong there, hope I am again. One thing Ryan does have is a very balanced outlook on life and a realistic view where football sits in the order of importance. He loves nothing more than getting away from the city and going fishing. GREAT to see two terrific football people appointed to representative coaching roles last week. Former Bulldogs champion Brian Royal will coach the AFL Vic Metro team to play the Peter Knights-coached Vic Country next year. The Metro side will be chosen after the Vic Metro league play off at Visy Park on 29 March. The WRFL team in that series will be coached by Brett Jacobs from the Sunshine Kangaroos who was named WRFL Coach of the Year. Brian and Brett are perfect choices for what they bring in football knowledge and the way they go about imparting that knowledge. THE Rotary Club of Altona City has their 12th annual golf day coming up on Friday 28 February, at Kooringal Golf Club. The day is very popular so it is advisable to get in early if you want to play or sponsor the day which raises funds for Very Special Kids and other Rotary projects. For more details contact Charlie Montebello on 0412 257 723 or email charles. montebello@bigpond.com. The Rotary Clob of Werribee is also holding a charity golf day on the same date at Werribee Park and you can get all the information from Graham Roper ropergh@optusnet.com.au or 0403 437 349 IF you have any news or events please let me know on email kevin@howdypartnersmedia. com.au and you can follow me on Twitter @KevinHillier and check out the website howdypartnersmedia.com.au

The Mitsubishi Triton can handle what life throws at it.

Tough but not rough EVEN though it’s tough on the outside, occupants don’t have to rough it in the cabin. The interior boasts a range of luxurious features for a comfortable ride. The Triton Double Cab is ergonomically designed which is important for those who spend a lot of time behind the wheel. There’s plenty of leg, shoulder and head room in the front and back seats to easily carry five adults. The Mitsubishi Triton has everything needed to get the tough jobs done. This dependable, Aussie workhorse feels at home anywhere you are - on a building site or around town. The Triton Double Cab’s long bed provides plenty of space for a range of carrying needs. The pick-up models are a huge 1505mm in length and 460mm in height so owners

can load those bulky items in with no problems. The cargo bed has double-walled support structures to ensure long-term performance. Whether for work or play, Triton’s cargo bed hauls loads with ease. Inner hooks let owners tie down their gear securely while the single handle in the rear gate gives them easier access when hands are full. To provide essential protection in the event of a frontal collision, every Triton is fitted with driver and front passenger SRS airbags, while double cab models have side and curtain airbags as standard. The front seatbelt system includes pretensioners and force limiters that combine to minimise the potential for serious injury in the event of an accident. The hardworking Triton inherits the 4WD-handling herit-

The Kia Sportage will revolutionise your driving experience.

Sporty score for the city SHARP, stylish and sophisticated, the Sportage lacks nothing in the looks department. While standout style is what catches the eye when looking for a new vehicle, performance and efficiency are what really counts. The Sportage exhibits all the capabilities of a true SUV and also ticks all the creature comfort boxes with a spacious and luxurious interior thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s packed with heaps of advanced features. When cruising through the city or tackling a dirt track thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not even on the map, the new Sportage delivers an even more rewarding drive than ever before. Interior variations include a new leather seat stitch pattern and colour, new headrest design, central locking button

on driver and passenger doors, lockable glove box, digital clock now incorporated into the audio display and more softtouch materials. The Sportage is equipped with a range of advanced active and passive safety systems that are continually working away in the background to help avoid and control dangerous situations. These include electronic stability control working to keep the wheels firmly glued to the ground, and brake assist system, which adds the correct brake force when required. At the same time, SUV strengths like AWD can provide additional vital assistance when the road gets tough. For greater visibility and road safety, HID lights in platinum and LED daytime running
