spoken to someone else who told them the place had burned down. “So, when I got one of my girls to ring them at 7.30pm - they were due at 7pm - to see if they were still coming, they said ‘Oh no, we heard the place burned down yesterday’.� Mr Hurren is in good spirits after the ordeal but warned other business owners to be wary of fire risks, and to make sure materials - such as tea towels - were cool before being put away.

Mr Hurren said staff were also concerned after the fire because a lengthy closure could have meant that staff would have to look elsewhere for jobs. “When my insurance assessor first came in and saw the damage, and I said that I wanted to be open within a week, she looked at me like I was crazy,� he said.

AN OLINDA restaurant has risen from the ashes after tea towels caught fire and caused thousands of dollars in damage last month. A combination of hot, freshly tumble-dried tea towels - combined with a warm room and organic oil - are believed to have caused a spontaneous combustion in The Ivy’s bar on 29 May. Owner Mark Hurren sat down with the Mail last week to talk about his experience with the fire, and how the business had coped since the disaster. He said a former employee of the restaurant, who called Mr Hurren to tell him that “The Ivy is on fire�, set off the alarm bells. Rushing down to the scene, Mr Hurren was able to use a fire extinguisher through a window, but CFA crews were able to put it out. Sassafras, Monbulk, Kallista and Olinda crews all attended the fire, using breathing apparatus to take down the small fire. Once the smoke had cleared, and he was able to take the time to assess the damage, Mr Hurren said the estimated repair bill would be about $50,000. He said that much of the actual damage was the result of smoke which destroyed wine labels - and fire extinguisher chemicals which damaged appliances. “Due to the fire extinguisher that we used - the dry chemical gets into a lot of the machinery,� he said. “The smoke, it gets into everything. “As far as the building goes, you can clean it and paint it.� But it was a different story in relation to some fittings and knick-knacks. “What we could clean, we cleaned, but a lot of it, we had to throw out.� With his source of income out of action for the time being, Mr Hurren quickly got to work organising the revival of the business. He set a goal of one week to have

A DRIVER was taken away by ambulance last week after crashing into a car travelling in the opposite direction and hitting a tree. Belgrave police Senior Constable Laurence Seamer said that a male driver was heading towards Belgrave on Monbulk Road on Thursday 19 June at 7am. Police believe the driver lost control between Grants Picnic Ground and Micawber Tavern, and was hit by a car travelling in the opposite direction, before slamming into a tree. The driver, who was able to get out of his car at the time of the crash, was taken away by ambulance. The extent of his injuries are unknown.

“I believe it’s locals - this road is not a through road and the only people who come down here would be local. “What annoys me is that they have stolen off me; I’ve donated the things here for the station.” John is hoping those who work along the rail line and are familiar with the spot will keep an eye out for opportunistic thieves.

Recently, the large plastic containers that caught the rain water from the station were also stolen. “The last straw was last Thursday - I had a beautiful cast iron garden seat and they’ve pinched that,” he said. “What upset me about this was that it was chained, locked to a concrete block in the ground. “They had equipment to steal it.

“The fact that we are looking at putting in a community facility elsewhere is very important we are looking at putting it elsewhere and not at the police station,” Cr Lempriere said. “It’s not that I am against this facility, it’s not that I don’t want the people of Emerald to have something up there that’s a community facility. “What I question, and I question very strongly, is this particular building,” she said.

THE old Nobelius train station in Emerald has been the target of vandals and thieves. John Michell from Bayswater tends to the train station every couple of weeks. Describing it as Emerald’s hidden gem, he looks after the old station, the garden beds and the surrounds. It is hidden by trees and shrub, but the beautiful spot has recently been the target of thieves who have stolen items and made off with a park bench. “The train doesn’t stop here anymore,” John said. “It used to be completely overgrown, and I have been coming up here for four years. “I put all the garden beds in and the plants. “The locals know it’s here they love it.” John believes the restored station is one a kind in Victoria and was horrified to come up last week to find the park bench, which was bolted into a concrete block, had been stolen.

THE old Emerald police station is receiving the attention of Cardinia Shire councillors. A report into the potential uses of the site and the need for a community hub in the hills town was tabled at a recent council meeting. Councillor Leticia Wilmot moved the motion and reminded councillors that it was the first stage of the investigation and that there was no need to discuss councillors’ personal opinions as to whether the council should purchase the building. “This report provides some information that forms part of what needs to be considered,” she said.“There is also a potential for a community hub which was originally planned in a staged approach near the library at the Worrell Reserve site. “We don’t need to make a decision tonight,” she said. The council has been approached by community groups including radio station 3MDR. Cr Wilmot said 3MDR’s facility was “horrible” and that the volunteers had outgrown it. “They need to move - but is this building the right place for them?” Cr Lempriere questioned whether the site was the right space and the right building for council to purchase if it is offered by the State Government.

Hospital study cash approved THE future of Healesville Hospital has been a major topic of community discussion for a couple of years now. Just before Easter in 2013, I attended a large community meeting at the Memorial Hall where a range of issues and suggestions were discussed. Since then, there has been much progress with more funding provided by the State Government for a range of services. One of the big issues discussed at the meeting and since has been whether Healesville Hospital should become an independent hospital with its own local board of management. We all want the hospital to be the

would be all for it. Determining whether independence is the best way forward requires a thorough, rigorous and expert feasibility study of the business case. Taking the leap to independence based on a hunch or a second-rate study would be irresponsible, which is why the Save Healesville Hospital Action Group (SHHAG) and the local community started raising funds for a full professional study. Notwithstanding the extraordinary fund-raising efforts throughout last year, it was always clear the community was not in a position to raise the entirety of the funds required for a

gold-class study. As a result, I pledged during the last election that if the Coalition was elected, a grant would be provided to enable the study to proceed. Last week, I was pleased to announce with Assistant Infrastructure and Regional Development Minister Jamie Briggs that the government has approved $55,000 of funding towards the Healesville Hospital Small Rural Health Service Business Case Study. This will enable this important study to proceed in the coming weeks and months. In addition to this funding, in March Minister Briggs visited Healesville to

sign the funding agreement to provide the $3.56 million I pledged for the construction of the Yarra Valley Railway. As detailed analysis has shown, it will be a major drawcard for more tourists to spend more time in the Yarra Valley, building a stronger local economy with more jobs. The funding for the business case on independence for the Healesville Hospital will importantly enable the analysis to be undertaken so that we can also make the best health service choices for the future to build a stronger community. - Tony Smith is the Federal Liberal MP for Casey.

D-Day looming for Hoffman channel crossing By CASEY NEILL FOUR hours of vomiting ended Paul Hoffman’s previous attempt to swim across the English Channel, in July 2012. Next month the Selby man will do it all again, hoping for a happier ending. “It was a bucket list sort of thing I wanted to do and I didn’t get there last time,” he said. Mr Hoffman doesn’t remember being pulled from the water, eight hours and 30 kilometres after setting off from Dover, England, for France. “It didn’t end well. I was pretty sick,” he said. But the swim raised thousands of dollars for StarBright - a learning exchange program supporting AIDS and HIV-affected orphans in Cape Town’s slums and shanty towns. He’s hoping this attempt will again drum up donations for the charity. “That’s a reward in itself,” he said. Mr Hoffman’s wife Wendy told him to get back in the water before he flew home last time, “so at least you have a positive experience before you go”. “It was good advice,” he said. “It took a couple of months to get back into it and really start enjoying it. “I carried on swimming but I was just sort of plodding.” But he’s since taken on open water swims, including The Bloody Big Swim from Frankston to Mornington, a Rye to Portsea swim with Iceberger group Black Ice, and the Rottnest Channel Swim. He’s stepping up his training and will fly out on 24 July for his swim window, from 28 July to 2 August. Mr Hoffman, who once described himself as “a lousy swimmer”, said he’d learnt lessons from his last attempt. The biggest was to rely on his support crew. “If you have a problem you have to tell them,” he said.

Paul Hoffman in training at Dandenong Oasis Pool. 116438 This time he’ll have two people who’ve successfully crossed the channel in his boat. “I’ll be more relaxed knowing what I’m going into this time,” he said. The swim from England to France is 34 kilometres in a straight line. “The challenge you have is the current is pushing you sideways,” he said. This could push the swim out to 50km.

Mr Hoffman’s only allowed to wear goggles, a cap, and speedos and isn’t allowed to touch his support boat. Crew members will throw out containers attached to a rope filled with food and drinks. The Rhodesian-born father of two had been dreaming about the challenge since he was 14 years old. When he volunteered as a surf lifeguard at Sunrise beach in Cape Town,

Plea to save attack dog By JESSE GRAHAM FAMILIES of the children who were bitten in last week’s dog attack in Ferny Creek have said they don’t wish to see the animal destroyed, though the matter is now in the council’s hands. The attack took place at Ferny Creek Primary School on Monday 16 June when a one-year-old, purebred English bulldog escaped from its owner’s property and made its way into the school at lunchtime. Principal Matthew Coyle said the dog had been playful towards the students, but its demeanour quickly changed, and it began biting some of them. A teacher intervened when the dog had “clamped on” to one of the stu-

dents, and managed to get the dog off but the dog turned and attacked another student. Two teachers managed to get the dog away from students, and shooed the dog out of the school grounds, while an ambulance, police officers and Yarra Ranges Council’s animal rangers arrived at the school. Students, meanwhile, were evacuated into the building as a lockdown procedure, to ensure their safety. A girl and a boy from Grade 2, a Grade 4 boy and a teacher all suffered injuries from the dog bites, and the two boys were taken to Dandenong Hospital for stitches. Mr Coyle told the Mail that the owners of the dog were a family from the school, and that they had been in con-

tact to help support the affected students and staff. He said some families of the bite victims had also been in contact about the incident, and did not wish the dog to be put down as a result of the incident. The dog was seized on the day by the Yarra Ranges Council, and an investigation into the incident is being carried out, according to a council spokesperson. Belgrave police Sergeant Mick Hall attended the incident, and said that any prosecutions on the matter would be undertaken through council. He said that the incident was a “no win”, with the dog likely to be ordered to be destroyed by the courts. “You’ve got to feel for them as well,” Sgt Hall said.

“The family involved are traumatised as well - it’s a no-win situation for anybody.” Mr Coyle said the boys had returned to the hospital on Friday 20 June to assess whether they would need plastic surgery on the puncture wounds. He praised the teachers on their quick thinking in the incident and said the incident could have escalated without their intervention. “Those two teachers avoided the situation being a lot worse than it was,” Mr Coyle said. It is believed that the dog escaped through a gate, which was left open by a family member. Both students and staff at the school have been offered counselling on the incident.

Ready to go against bushfire threat A PILOT project to protect vulnerable community members over summer has been hailed as a success, with a report on the project released last week in Cockatoo. On Wednesday 18 June, Cockatoo and Cardinia community members gathered at Monash Community Health to mark the launch of the Ready2Go Pilot Evaluation Report. The Ready2Go Pilot Project was run throughout summer from 20132014 and involved a team of volunteers protecting vulnerable or elderly residents from bushfire and heat risks. The volunteers would be alerted if an upcoming day posed significant fire risk or heatwave conditions, and would contact the participants who could elect to re-locate to safety in Pakenham. The report was officially launched

by Gembrook MP Brad Battin, Monash Health’s health promotion practitioner Marlene Dalziel and Ready2Go lead volunteer Sue Wales. Ms Dalziel said that many participants, whether for age or medical reasons, were often socially isolated and that having the contact with volunteers in the project helped their mental wellbeing. She said participants had said the communication had made them feel comfortable and looked after, even in the 10-day heatwave that struck the area in January. Only one of the project participants relocated to Pakenham during the summer, although three of the volunteers enacted their emergency plans and relocated in February.

Sewer’s mixed reaction DESPITE some Monbulk residents being critical of the proposed Sewerage Backlog Program, others are keen to get involved. Monbulk resident Rita Soares, who moved to the area one year ago, said the Sewerage Backlog Program would be a step in the right direction for the township. The Mail reported last month that more than 900 properties have been identified by the Yarra Ranges Council for further assessment to determine the need for sewerage services, after septic tanks used to manage domestic waste-water have been identified as potentially failing to meet standards. Although Monbulk resident Bronwyn Slagter voiced concerns that added costs associated with septic tank removal would create added pressure on struggling households, Ms Soares said she couldn’t wait to get rid of her septic system. “We spoke to council and even had a plumber come out, so we could learn how the system works we also had it pumped and cleaned as soon as we moved in,” Ms Soares said. “We noticed over summer lots of flies and smells coming from the tank with that smell even following into winter. “I understand that there are different cases where the tanks are working properly, but from my understanding owners will be able to make the decision to partake in the program.” –Rebecca Bills

Jumps reminder not to skip heart health By REBECCA BILLS STUDENTS skipped for a great cause to raise money for heart disease. Earlier this month, all students at Belgrave South Primary School took part in the Heart Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart 2014. The school takes part in this event every two years with grade six leaders Bridget and Tyler organising this year’s event. Both leaders said it was a challenge to get everything ready and to plan all the activities but was definitely worth it. “It’s good to get everybody active, have lots of fun and raise some money for a good cause,” Tyler said. Grade 6 teacher Julie Price said all the students get excited in the lead-up to the event. “A lot of kids have had grandparents die or be affected by heart attacks and heart disease so it’s a really important fund-raiser in that respect, too,” she said. “It promotes healthy living and that’s another reason why we are doing it. “This is also a great leadership op-

portunity, not just for Bridget and Tyler to step up but for all Grade 6 students, as they are manning the different groups, teaching skills and mentoring the younger students through the activities.” Since the inception of the Heart Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart more than 30 years ago, more than 90 per cent of all Australian schools, reaching 8 million school children, have participated in the program. Jump Rope for Heart Field Officer Mitchell Watson said the program helps students understand how physical activity and nutritional behaviours can impact on their health in the future and help those who have already been affected. “I have seen the impact of heart disease in my own family, especially in my dad over the past few years, so I’m extremely grateful to be able to speak to students about why heart disease matters and the positive work of the Heart Foundation,” he said. “It’s wonderful to see how willing schools are to join the fight against heart disease.”

Emma will be commencing her trip at the three-day convention in Fukuoka, then spending the rest of her time abroad in a home-stay arrangement with a Japanese family and attending a local school. Embarking on her trip in three weeks, Emma said she was excited to go and “fully embrace” the Japanese culture. Emma said when she initially applied for the trip she was more focused on going through the interview process than actually going on the trip. “But as I kept going with my interviews and the selection date was getting closer, I really wanted to be selected,” she said. “When you think about other countries you can only imagine what they are like, but actually going there, and being able to meet students from 59 other countries is just amazing.” UFTG Primary School Principal Peta Evans said for a young girl, Emma had shown great maturity and determination throughout the entirety of the application process. “I really admire her confidence and we can’t wait for her to return

Emma’s mother Bec McLean said she was extremely proud of her daughter embarking on the trip.

“I’m dreading the airport goodbye - it will be a long 14 days for us here at home,” she said. “Emma has always had an interest in learning anything new and experiencing everything and anything - she’s so driven to not miss out on any opportunities that may come her way.” The APCC is a civic movement which is funded by local governments as well as supported by donations from corporate sponsors and the APCC Supporters’ Association. The aim of the APCC is to foster global citizens who are able to think of the world beyond national boundaries and desire world peace and co-existence.

Parks weather warning out VISITORS to national parks and forests in the Yarra Ranges are being urged to take care as winter rains set in. Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment and Primary Industries urged avoiding areas that were closed down and to slow down and be careful when travelling on forest tracks and trails. “Safety for visitors, volunteers and staff working in parks and forests is paramount. Please plan your trip to make sure you, your friends and families safely enjoy your visits to parks and forests,” Parks Victoria’s General Manager Regional Services, Chris Rose said. Some tracks and trails are now closed as part of the seasonal road closure program in the interests of driver safety, as well as to protect forest and park roads from damage during the winter months. “Some forest roads and tracks close when the track surfaces are most likely to be damaged by vehicles,” DEPI State Roads and Bridges Planning Manager Tony Dowler said. “The closures are important because our forest roads and tracks become much more difficult for drivers to use safely over this period. “Some forest tracks would suffer significant damage if left open all year round so we assess them each year and then, after consultation with users including Four Wheel Drive Victoria, we decide which tracks need to be closed.” Mr Rose said the partnership approach helped to protect parks based on the best available information. Information about road and track closures is available from the Public Access Map site in the recreation and tourism section at www.depi.vic. gov.au. Further maps and information about park conditions is available from Parks Victoria at www. parks.vic.gov.au.

Opinion Road of refuse THIS morning, as with almost every morning since McDonald’s opened in Tecoma, my commute from Ferny Creek to Upper Ferntree Gully railway station was marred by seeing McDonald’s rubbish strewn along the roadside. If this is how it is in Ferny Creek, I’d hate to see what the streets closer to Tecoma are like. It is heartbreaking to see our beautiful hills abused in this way. I am so lucky to have had the privi-

Day care hanging in the balance FAMILY day care services offered by Yarra Ranges Council could cease as of next year following a decision at tonight’s (Tuesday) council meeting. But, though a conclusion has not been reached, the council has said that stopping the service won’t adversely impact families and educators. At the council’s 24 June meeting, councillors will discuss the possibility of ending provision of its Family Day Care (FDC) Scheme for the municipality. The move to stop the scheme has come as a result of financial pressure, according to Yarra Ranges Council’s Director of Social and Economic Development Ali Wastie. Ms Wastie said that federal budget cuts to the FDC scheme of about $67,000 as well as ongoing council subsidies to the scheme are making it unsustainable. The council is funding the scheme with a $92,000 subsidy for the 2013-2014 financial year which, according to the council, is about $1 for every hour of care delivered by educators. Ms Wastie said that, while cost neutrality is not the only determinant for keeping a service running, ending the council’s FDC scheme will have little social impact, with five other providers servicing the area. “By exiting, there’s no loss in social benefit,” she said. “We have to weigh up the social benefit in this decision.” If the scheme is ended, the council will transition families on FDC programs to other providers before services would be due to cease on 1 July 2015. Council employees could be accommodated elsewhere in the company, or would possibly leave to work with other providers, according to Ms Wastie. However, she emphasised that nothing was final until the councillors made a decision. “We’re anticipating that there will be concern out there - internally, there’s concern for staff who are impacted,” Ms Wastie said. “We’re working with staff to make sure they get necessary support - but we’ll wait until next Tuesday to find out what the council decision is.” The council employs 21 educators who provide childcare for 101 families across the Yarra Ranges.

Doesn’t add up I am aghast at the article by Evelyn MP Christine Fyffe (Your Opinions Are Sought, Mail, Tuesday 3 June). Is she suffering from early demen-

tia? She did not mention a key infrastructure which is Lilydale TAFE and university which needs to be maintained and re-opened for the benefit of the Yarra Ranges community. It is a magnificent purpose-built educational facility geared to the ongoing education of our young people. We need this infrastructure to educate, support and encourage our young people toward continuing employment in our community. Katharina Perry, Lilydale.

We don’t dig coal ADDRESSING the Minerals Council, Prime Minister Abbott said it would be irresponsible for Australia to not dig up its coal and sell it. Tony, selling coal is definitely not responsible because coal is fuelling climate change. If we sell most of our coal we will have no chance of restricting global warming to two degrees or leaving a safe climate for our grandchildren and descendants. Selling our coal will simply be

short term gain in exchange for long term pain. Fortunately, the Bendigo Bank gets this. Recently it decided not to invest in coal or coal seam gas. With a good network of community banks around the hills, Dandenong Ranges residents now have an ethical bank they can deposit their money with. Well done Bendigo Bank! Peter Cook, Clematis.

RESIDENTS of Emerald and surrounding areas are invited to Dig In. But community dinner organiser Michelle Perera doesn’t just want people to dig in to the delicious meal on offer - but to dig in to the community as well. “Yes, it’s a community meal,” she said. “But you don’t have to be struggling to come along. “It’s about checking in, finding out what’s happening in town, what services are available - it’s really about getting the community together.” Ms Perera said organisers were always looking for volunteers to help in any way they can.

“People can volunteer their time, preparing meals, serving meals, tidying up, food donations or cash donations,” she said. “For us, it’s a whole of community approach.” She said organisers had received a lot of support from local businesses including Emerald Village Bakery which donated baked goods on Fridays and Green Gully Farm which donated amazing produce. “Others have come in when they have too many pumpkins in their garden or if they have other excess produce,” she said. “Everything we get we use and any money we make on the night is used to provide for the next community meal.”

Ms Perera said that she hoped to roll out the program to other areas within the Dandenongs. The next town she plans to open is Cockatoo. “We’ve got people coming from Cockatoo, Belgrave South, Belgrave, Macclesfield and Avonsleigh - it’s not just Emerald,” she said. “Last time we had about 70 people come in - and each time it seems to grow, people come in and tell their friends who might benefit from it.” The Dig In Café runs on the last Friday of every month at the Emerald Community Hall, next to Emerald Community House, from 6pm to 8pm.

The role is for an Advertising Sales Executive. Working to targets/KPI along with both phone and direct selling experience will be highly considered.

ABORIGINAL artwork is on show throughout Eastern Health hospitals to make it more comfortable for Indigenous Australians. Senior Aboriginal Service Development officer Vera Webber said the artwork, spread over the Angliss Hospital, Box Hill Hospital and Maroondah Hospital, portrayed the commitment from Eastern Health as a health provider to make the hospitals a culturally safe place for Aboriginals and Torres Straight Islanders. “This is just one initiative we have in place in working towards closing the health gap between Indigenous and non-

Indigenous people,” she said. “The artwork commenced its journey in 2012 when we started negotiations with artist and member of the Wurundjeri-Willam clan Mandy Nicholson who has completed artwork for each hospital.” Ms Nicholson, who was born and bred in Healesville, said the story behind the design of the artwork for the Angliss Hospital was about the smoking of manna gum leaves in a welcoming ceremony. “The leaves represent the manna gum leaves that are used in welcoming ceremonies where they are placed on hot ashes to create smoke,” she said.

“Visitors are then encouraged to pass through the smoke to be cleansed, which then also cleanses the surrounding area.” Assistant Unit manager of the Angliss Hospital Emergency Department Paula Hoffman said the artwork gave Indigenous Australians a feeling that they were welcome and that the hospital was really making an effort to reach out. “We have a lot of cultural awareness training so the staff are aware of what is culturally important to Aboriginal people and Torres Straight Islanders,” she said. “It’s a really great initiative, and I think it is an important thing to do.”

Stringing it out By REBECCA BILLS MATTHEW Fagan will be performing a spectacular arrangement of Celtic music arranged specially for his 10-string guitar. The performance will feature music by early Irish blind harper, composer and singer Turlough O’Carolan that has been specially arranged by Mr Fagan for the 10-string guitar. Mr Fagan said that there were many similarities between the 10-string guitar and the harp, however the guitar could create vibrato and portrayed Celtic music in a really special way. “We will be playing a range of traditional, spiritual and popular Celtic songs,” he said. Mr Fagan said he travelled to Ireland in 1992 to explore the country and this was where his fascination for Celtic music and transcribing Celtic harp music for the 10-string guitar was born. “When I travelled there I wanted to visit the spiritual sites, Celtic castles and the villages and also trace my Irish ancestry in Dublin and County Claire and also visit Galway which is also a very musical city,” he said. “Celtic music really speaks to me but I think there is a universal appeal. “It is very ancient music, there is a wealth of repertoire and many Australian artists love tapping into it.”

Mr Fagan will be performing with his partner Kellie Grattidge, who goes by the stage name Crystal Laine, who will sing Celtic favourites like “She moved through the Fair” and “Wild Mountain Thyme” as well as chants of Celtic blessings. Mr Fagan asks that all audience members wear a splash of green to get into the Celtic theme. The Celtic Folk show with 10-string guitarist Matthew Fagan and guest singer Crystal Laine featuring Celtic spiritual and folk songs is on Thursday 26 June at 7.30pm at Burrinja Cafe located at 351 Glenfern Road, Upwey. Tickets are $20 or $15 for concession at the door - for table bookings call Burrinja Cafe on 9754 5707 with dinner, coffee, snacks and bar services available. THE Mail is giving away three double passes to Celtic Folk show with 10-string Guitarist Matthew Fagan and guest singer Crystal Laine on Thursday 26 June at 7.30pm. To go into the draw to win two tickets to the show, visit the Mail Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ MailNewspaperGroup and like, comment “Celtic” and share the related post.

Dinner with a difference is an art By ANEEKA SIMONIS MISMATCHING plates and vintage teaware is all the rage in quirky cafes as more people want an out of the norm dining experience. But this hot new trend has transcended past our favourite brunch spot and into local art galleries. Opened on Friday 20 June, “High Tea - The Deconstructed Tea Party” is a new and exciting month-long exhibition showcasing the weird and whacky works of 10 local ceramic artists at the Burrinja Cultural Centre. Inspired by Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter Tea Party, the collaborative exhibit features a sculptural centrepiece made of deconstructed ceramic tea cups, pots and cutlery in an interpretative form of the Disney figure.

Babette Bruders, Glenn England, Lynne Lindsay and, right, Jenny Rowe, Rosie Hughes and Juliet Widdows are some of the artists whose work is featured in the exhibition. 122549 Picture: JESSE GRAHAM Jarmbi’s downstairs gallery will also feature a 10-setting high tea table, decorated to reflect the interpretative design of each of the artists along with a scrapbook, inviting visitors to

learn and respond to the threemonth creative process. Olinda’s artistic collaborator, Lynne Lindsay said the open, conversational theme was a unique, important aspect to the

exhibit and they looked forward to gaining creative feedback. “Galleries tend to be spaces where people don’t get opportunity to respond ... the exhibit provides a way to engage and inform,” she said. The artists, from Tecoma, Upwey and Menzies Creek have been working on the exhibit at fellow artist, Lee Goller’s studio in Tecoma since February. During the exhibit, visitors are also invited to take part in the creative process, with the artists offering two workshops on how to make and decorate ceramic pieces on Saturday 28 June and Saturday 12 July. High Tea - The Deconstructed Tea Party is at the Burrinja Cultural Centre from 20 June 20 July.

OVER the weekend, the Mount Evelyn Christian School theatrette has been transformed into a medieval set. This year’s Cycle A students are bringing the oldest surviving English manuscript, the heroic epic poem of Beowulf to life in a stage performance like no other. Each year, Year 7 and 8 students take part in cycle A and B groupings with cycle A focusing on history and the performing arts and cycle B focusing on communication especially in the media. Play director and teacher Sharon Rodrigo said the production was about Beowulf, a hero of Geats, who came to the aid of the king of Danes whose mead hall (or pub as it is in the production) has been under attack by a monster known as Grendel. She says after Beowulf slays Grendel, Grendel’s mother attacks and is also defeated by Beowulf who then becomes King of the Geats however after 50 years he has to defeat a dragon. “It is a comedy, although it may not sound that way,” she said.

“Everyone has absolutely loved it,” she said. Ms Rodrigo said the production was a really great opportunity for students in Year 7 and 8 to have a hands-on experience with all facets of theatre production. “The students are responsible for all the acting, the prompting, creating of the props, their own choreography in dances as well as sound and lighting,” she said. “This year, the kids have been absolutely phenomenal and really co-operative, making for a spectacular performance. “They all have had to audition for their roles, with each student taking to the stage at some part of the performance.” Ms Rodrigo said one of the benefits of all students getting a chance in the spotlight was that students might uncover a hidden gifting in acting, set design, costume design and even backstage production. “Some students that you would not expect absolutely shine,” she said. “It is very rewarding for each student involved and us teachers as directors.”

BEAUTIFULLY presented and well maintained, this gorgeous home is about 100 years old, but it is in such good condition that it is hard to tell. RIVER Cottage has views of the Yarra River and the iconic swing bridge, and the rear of the property backs onto the popular Warburton Trail. It has three bedrooms, all with builtin wardrobes, and the master bedroom contains an electric wall heater as an extra bonus.

Lanterns light longest night HUNDREDS of Belgrave residents took to the streets over the weekend to celebrate the winter solstice at the eighth Belgrave Lantern Festival. The event, which was co-ordinated by volunteers and supported by Burrinja, Belgrave traders and lantern artists, saw the idyllic lanterns fill the evening’s sky to celebrate the shortest day of the year on Saturday night. Community Cultural Development Officer at Burrinja Amy Middleton said the parade is an element that makes Belgrave what it is today. Marking the midst of winter, she said the event heralds the turning point with new beginnings celebrated coming into longer days in the lead-up to spring. And, for the first time ever, the Freemasons from the Belgrave Masonic Centre took part in the parade and marched in full regalia.

Olinda registers a convincing win

Upwey on top

YVMDFNL First Division A Grade Netball Olinda Ferny Creek 66 d Woori Yallock 37 A COMPLETE solid four-quarter performance from Olinda gave them a comprehensive 29-goal victory over Woori. Olinda started extremely well with a 22 goal-to-10 first quarter to set the tone and Woori just couldn’t find a way to eat into that lead as Olinda really did control the tempo of the game, increasing their lead at every change to run out comfortable victors. Olinda Ferny Creek best players: A. Wall, C. Bates (2 goals), M. Thomas (29 goals). Woori Yallock best players: E. Van Der West Huizen, C. Stafford, P. Stewart (31 goals). Warburton Millgrove 49 d Monbulk Hawks 34 IT WAS an eventual 15-goal win to Warby who did have to fight off a determined Monbulk. Warby held a narrow twogoal lead at the first change and increased that to six at half time with an 11 goal-to-seven second quarter. The third term was evenly matched with Warby going into the last quarter with a seven-goal buffer. Warby hit their straps in the last as Monbulk found it hard to sustain the pressure, allowing Warby to finish the day with a 15 goal-to-seven last term to win in a good contest. Warburton Millgrove best players: A. Bryan, O. Caneva (26 goals), K. Wappett. Monbulk Hawks best players: S. Byatt (22 goals), A. Barwick, C. Weickhardt (7 goals). Wandin 60 d Mount Evelyn 38 WANDIN was far superior from the outset of this game and never gave Mount Evelyn a real chance. Wandin controlled play early and maintained that control to half time, scoring 32 goals-to-18. The second half was a little more even, but it was still Wandin with the upper hand, scoring another 28 goals for the game to Mount Evelyn’s 20 to win, in what was a very solid four-quarter performance. Wandin best players: M. Martinov (36 goals), T. Coppinger, J. Cullimore (14 goals). Mount Evelyn best players: J. Walker, M. Hickey (17 goals), J. Matthews.

YVMDFNL First Division Seniors: Monbulk 12.12 (84) d Warburton Millgrove 8.23 (71) MONBULK may have won the game if not for Warby’s woeful inaccuracy in front of goal. The outcome may have been a lot different. Warby started well and jumped out to a 15-point lead at the first change, but Monbulk got back into the game in the second and was just five points adrift by half time. The third term was goal-for-goal in an even battle and by the last change it was Warby by just one point. Monbulk showed their poise in the last as they took full advantage of their opportunities, booting 4.3 for the term while Warby had their chances but wasted them with a 1.7 quarter which saw Monbulk triumph by 13 points. Monbulk best players: S. Williams (1 goal), D. Ward, S. Whittington (1 goal). Warburton Millgrove best players: B. Irving (1 goal), J. Iacono (1 goal), S. Andueza. Emerald 16.9 (105) d Belgrave 10.13 (73) EMERALD has finally broken through with their first win with a great 32-point victory over Belgrave. Emerald didn’t score a goal in the first quarter and trailed by 17 points, but they bounced back hard in the second with a five goal-to-two quarter and they were just two points down at the half time break. The third was a great battle with both teams going in hard, and it went goal-forgoal with Emerald just edging in front by three points at the last change. The last quarter belonged to Emerald as they looked anything but a bottom side, they ran Belgrave off their legs, scoring six goals-to-one to finish off the game in sensational fashion and celebrate their first victory of the year. Emerald best players: J. Davis (6 goals), B. Moloney, M. Lorkin (1 goal). Belgrave best players: S. Nicholson, D. Collins (1 goal), C. Kelf. Upwey Tecoma 23.23 (161) d Healesville 14.12 (96) UPWEY flexed their muscles as they handed Healesville a 65-point defeat. The first quarter was a bit of a goal feast with 10 majors being scored but it was Upwey that held the upper hand with six of those 10. Upwey was using the ball a lot better and it showed in the second as they booted five goals while Healesville was managing to stay in touch with three majors of their own and at half time it was Upwey by four goals. There was plenty of goals kicked in the second half, but it seemed for every goal that Healesville got Upwey would answer with two of their own. Upwey booted 12 goals to Healesville’s seven for the half, but they could have really blown Healesville away by their dominance, but with a score line of 12.15 in the last two quarters, it actually made the final margin not as great as it possibly should have been. Upwey Tecoma best players: D. Waters (10 goals), T. Hedge (1 goal), K. Grenda (4 goals). Healesville best players: J. Shaw (3 goals), S. Donkin (1 goal), G. Mason (1 goal). Wandin 16.18 (114) d Mount Evelyn 15.12 (102) WANDIN has really got their season back on track as they jump into fourth spot after a

Amanda Finn from Yarra Junction. 122637 Belgrave 71 d Emerald 26 EMERALD was just no match for a more skilled and polished Belgrave unit. Belgrave was all class as they played the game on their terms for the entirety of the match. Emerald did however battle hard but Belgrave’s poise and quick ball movement saw their score tick over at a pretty quick speed to secure a very sizeable victory. Belgrave best players: L. Bennett (41 goals), T. Jois, C. Timms (30 goals). Emerald best players: L. Whyte, N. Argoon, S. Campbell (14 goals). Upwey Tecoma 68 d Healesville 36 UPWEY always looked the better side in this match but they did have to work hard in the first half as Healesville did take the game up to the league leaders. At half time, Upwey held a 12goal advantage. The second half saw Upwey step it up as they showed some of their best form. They scored 20 goals-to-nine in the third and then ran away with the game in the last, shooting 15 goals-to-six to win by a comfortable 32 goals. Upwey Tecoma best players: J. Lingard (8 goals), T. Salanoa (33 goals), K. Tomlinson. Healesville best players: J. Cumming, L. Woodgate (16 goals), C. Connell.

Shane O’Brien (Mount Evelyn) goes for the mark against two Wandin players. 122643 Picture: GREG CARRICK gripping 12-point win over Mount Evelyn. This has knocked them out of the top five and into the sixth spot. This was a ripper game from start to finish, there wasn’t more than seven points separating the sides at the first three breaks. Wandin held the biggest lead and that was just seven points at quarter time. Mount Evelyn got a bit of control in the second and found the big sticks five timesto- three for the quarter and at half time, they had their noses in front by just one point. The third was a goal-for-goal affair with Wandin just holding sway, booting five goals to four and at the last break it was Wandin by four points. The last quarter was more of the same, but it was Wandin that had a touch more of the ball and created more opportunities which invariably got them a two-goal victory in what was a classic encounter. Wandin best players: R. Ross, J. Messis (3 goals), S. Young (5 goals). Mount Evelyn best players: C. Carmody (7 goals), C. Urquhart (2 goals), M. Martin. Second Division Seniors Monbulk 6.12 (48) drew Belgrave 6.12 (48) THIS may have been a low scoring affair, but it was a classic contest between two sides that didn’t give an inch and a draw was arguably a justified result. It was just three goals apiece at half

time, with Monbulk leading by just one point. Belgrave created a few more opportunities in the third, booting 2.4-to-1.1 and grabbed an eight-point lead at the last change. In the last quarter, Monbulk reversed the trend and started winning more of the ball and scored 2.3, but it wasn’t quite enough to get over the line as Belgrave did scrounge 1.1 which saw scores all tied up, come final siren. Monbulk best players: N. Cramer, T. Gromer (1 goal), K. Sas (3 goals). Belgrave best players: N. Schill, C. Rak, N. Watson. Mount Evelyn 22.17 (149) d Seville 1.1 (7) MOUNT Evelyn was far too superior for a Seville side that has been struggling of late. Mount Evelyn started in fine touch with a six goal-to-one first quarter and continued that form in the second, booting seven goals-to-one to take an 82-point lead into half time. The second was still all Mount Evelyn as they added another nine goals to their tally while Seville could only add another behind resulting in a percentage boosting win for the victors. Mount Evelyn best players: D. Broadway, C. Glass (3 goals), J. Craig. Seville best players: A Whitelaw, A Wind, J Wilson (1 goal).

Action-packed for the championships By JAMES LAVEN IT WAS another brilliant, actionpacked weekend as the senior athletes from Yarra Ranges headed off to Bundoora Park for XCR Round Four. The day featured the Victorian State Cross Country Championships and Victorian All Schools Championships as well as being the selection event for the Australian Championships in August. Yarra Ranges athletes looked very professional as the long- awaited arrival of club tracksuits was finally delivered. The junior athletes, competing for their schools ran a fast course of three, four or six kilometres with many excellent performances to show. The first race of the day was the under 14 Women running three kilometres. Lily Peacock (Lilydale High

School) ran an excellent race to place fourth in a time of 11.13, followed by Brooke Mullins (Mansfield Primary School) placing 16th in 11.45.

Lofty goals for footy in the hills By REBECCA BILLS WITH one full week in the job under his belt, Gordon Sumner is ready to lead football in the region to a new season. Recently appointed regional general manager of the Yarra Ranges Commission, incorporating Yarra Valley Mountain District Football and Netball League (YVMDFNL), Dandenong Ranges Junior Football League (DRJFL) and Yarra Ranges Umpires, Mr Sumner said he was keen to develop the game. Growing up in Warburton, Mr Sumner started his football career 40 years ago, playing junior football at Wesburn Boys Club before he moved onto seniors at Warburton Millgrove Football Club. From there, Mr Sumner spent time playing at Collingwood Football Club in 1985 where he was awarded ‘Best First Year Player’ for Collingwood and the league. From there, he has moved through a number of football leagues as player, coach, committee member, and major sponsor. In 2010, Mr Sumner was back coaching in Warburton and then was

involved with Silvan Football Club as assistant coach in 2013. “It was amazing, I was coaching the kids of people I had played with - it really made it so much more enjoyable,” Mr Sumner said. “Now stepping up as regional general manager in this area is really a dream come true,” he said. “It gives me great pleasure and honour to know that what I will be doing is to further develop our league and establish a solid foundation for the present and future generations.” Mr Sumner said as regional general manager, his primary responsibility was to convey the development pillars of the ALF Country Victoria which were proven formulas for the development of country leagues. He explained that these four pillars are community foundation, talent, infrastructure and culture. “It is my ambition to develop an honest culture within our league so that every club has the chance to succeed as desired - premierships are just a small part of community development,” he said.

Some solid football played by all grades and some great improvements shown now that we are in mid-season.
