Hope for Cerini By Kath Gannaway

Ivor Wolstencroft with portraits of Father Cerini. 179346 trees, power poles and fences as a 'flash mob' exhibition in the hope of igniting community support for the building to be retained. Last week he again called on the community to come together in what could be a last ditch opportunity to see Fr. Cerini's legacy retained in community use. "My thought is that the Cerini Centre would make an ideal permanent exhibition space for a local art group, or other community group, but you need two or three committee members willing to fight for it," he said. "I agree with Council, that it needs some-

one who wants to take responsibility for generating rent to at least look after the maintenance of the building, and there are significant restoration costs involved. "I think people are interested (in keeping it) and people don't want to see it falling down. There's and emotional connection there, especially for longer-term residents who went to school there, attended dinners and other community events there, but it needs a community group to need a home," Mr Wolstencroft said. "It needs a community group to put their hand up and say we want a permanent space."

issues, Mr Wolstencroft concluded that without construction of Glen Avenue, a number of titles are landlocked. "In its current state, with no confirmed access and the cost of connecting services the Cerini Centre is probably of no monetary value," Mr Wolstencroft concluded. He added that Yarra Ranges Council has confirmed it currently has no interest in purchasing the site. Last year Mr Wolstencroft mounted an awareness campaign placing many of the 100 or so portraits he has done of Fr Cerini on

Warburton resident Ivor Wolstencroft says he has not lost hope that Warburton's Cerini Centre could remain in community ownership. Following approaches to the Minister for Education, James Merlino, the Victorian School Building Authority has put the disposal of the building on hold as they investigate options for its future. The unique circular building was built by Father Charles Cerini in 1952 to provide a Catholic school for Upper Yarra Students. Following its closure in 1992 it was used as a community centre and by Upper Yarra Community House for its VCAL and Step Ahead programs but with the building no longer being used for community education and in the face of mounting maintenance costs, in July 2015 the Cerini Committee of Management, reluctantly handed the building back to the Education Department. While the property which abuts the Warburton Primary School is part of the school land there are a number of complicated road and subdivision issues that have plagued early attempts to obtain titles to the land, and address issues such as sewerage and road access. In a letter dated 12 February this year, the Chief Executive Officer of the VSBA, Chris Keating responded on behalf of the Minister. "A key element of any decision regarding the future of the building will be whether an organisation or community group can commit to take responsibility for the building," he advised. "Since the building is not an education facility, its ongoing management does not fall within the remit of the Department of Education and Training. "In the meantime, I can confirm that the possible disposal of the building will be placed on hold while these matters are investigated." Last year, in a list of 16 issues that impact on the future sale/ownership of the centre, Mr Wolstencroft identified that the centre does not sit on a separate distinct title and any sale process would require title boundaries to be redrawn.

Vaccination extended

Women4Women connects

With nine meningococcal cases diagnosed in the Eastern Metropolitan region last year, the Victorian Government has extended its lifesaving free meningococcal vaccination program for Year 10 students until 31 December 2018 to protect teenage Victorians against the deadly disease.

By Kath Gannaway Connection was a key theme at the Healesville Women4Women event on Sunday, 18 March. Presented by Strengthening Women in Healesville network as a launch event for an ongoing network, more than 100 women took part starting with a Welcome to Country by Wurundjeri Elder Kim Wandin and followed by a series of inspiring and informative speakers, wellbeing treatments, workshops and craft activities. MC, Cr Fiona McAllister put herself firmly in the picture identifying as a woman, sister, daughter, friend and auntie. "The aim is to improve access, communication and empowerment of women living and working in Healesville. "Today is the start of this initiative and I know it will grow into a self-sustaining collective of women working and living in Healesville," she said. An event on Sunday, 29 April in Healesville will maintain the momentum and the energy that was generated in bucket loads on the day. The two hour get-together will be the first meeting aimed at shaping the group and having fun with Red Moon Rising access-friendly belly dancing and yoga. Women4Women organiser, Anita Koochew from Eastern Community Legal Centre, said the March event set a strong foundation for the group with the sense of connection a highlight. "It was the connection of women and that it actually helped local women as well as the organisations to connect with each other in an environment that felt safe, warm, relaxed and

"That was one of our goals and I felt there was a lot of connection happening on the day." Each speaker was asked to give a closing message. Describing Healesville women as strong, beautiful and bold, Lesley Porter said "Remember, you are not your story, you can created a new story every time you wake up. Dr Doseena Fergie addressed her message in particular to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in the room. "We are at a disadvantage even in gender equality. I encourage our mob here to keep on keeping on. You are strong and resilient women, you keep on standing strong sisters."

Michelle Atwell said "We all wear different hats - mum, work colleague, partner, friend; put a hat on for you and take some time out for you," she said. Michelle Cornelius was wearing her health nurse hat. "There are lots of services in Healesville. If you need help or support, ask someone," she said. And Kristine Olaris encouraged women to speak up. "Be a bit courageous about pushing for women's equality. Be vocal about what you think." To register for the 29 April event email yarraranges@eclc.org.au . For more information join the Healesville Women 4 Women group on facebook .

Young people aged 15 and 16 years old are at a greater risk of carrying and spreading meningococcal bacteria, as one in five carry it in the back of their throats and can pass the bacteria to family members and friends. The best way to protect young people, and the wider community, is through the free and safe vaccination on offer. One in 10 cases if meningococcal disease proves to be fatal with death occurring within 24-48 hours of diagnosis. Two in every 10 people who survive the disease are left with a permanent disability such as brain damage or the loss of fingers, toes or limbs. To find out more about the community immunisation sessions please contact your local council. For health advice call NURSEON-CALL on 1300 60 60 24, or call 000 in an emergency.

Times are changing By Kath Gannaway The Upper Yarra Public Cemetery at Wesburn is an evolving reflection of the region with the headstones giving a clue into the lives and times of residents of the Upper Yarra for 125 years ... so far! For the volunteer trust that runs the cemetery, the historic elements are integral, but so is keeping the cemetery relevant to today's changing needs. Frank Colverson has been on the Trust for around 40 years, and there are a number of others who are long-time custodians of the special piece of Wesburn. Two new natural bushland areas are part of the response to change they have seen over the years. "More people are interested in the environment now and want to have as little disturbance to the natural environment as possible when they are buried," Mr Colverson said. Donna Buang and Little Yarra bushland areas have been established for families wishing to arrange burials that are respectful of the environment. "It is natural bushland where we have no mowed lawns and no headstones making a very low impact on the environment." The Trust's vision for the bushland burial areas has taken almost 18 months to be realised involving expert guidance to create a natural planting program and drawing on the participation of Upper Yarra Landcare Group and local community members. It is a departure from the traditional grid format which Mr Colverson explained are defined by religious denominations. "Anyone who didn't identify as a particular religion went into the Church of England," Mr Colverson recalled. As has always been the case, in a response to the local community, one of those denominations is Muslim. "Just after the second world war we had a

IN BRIEF Theft warning for Yarra Valley Yarra Junction police are urging residents to lock their doors and secure items of value following an increase in theft around the Yarra Valley. Yarra Junction Police said that residents can take simple steps such as engraving power tools with license numbers as well as placing items of value out of view to reduce the likelihood of items being taken. Putting license numbers on equipment means that if they are recovered police are able to easily identify the owners. "First and foremost we need to reduce the opportunity," Police said. "Don't leave keys in a position where they can be found, if you have motorbikes or quad and don't leave them or the keys visible." "Ensure that you lock the garage." Anyone who witnesses individuals acting suspiciously are also urged to contact triple 0.

"A cemetery is a reflection of the community in many ways. In earlier days everyone would attend a funeral in a suit, and people would doff their hats when a hearse went by. The ceremonies themselves were more formal as well." The established Ben Cairn Lawn area has also been extended. "The work carried out on a voluntary basis on this area by Brendan Halit of Yarra Ranges Contracting and Eddy Woods of Woods Earthmoving is another great example of the community involvement in the cemetery," Mr Colverson said.

Cemeteries are public places people are welcome to walk through. Trust member Rosemary Crowley has conducted history walks over the years and there are hundreds of stories to tell. In addition to overseeing the evolution of the cemetery, Mr Colverson said the Trust is always working to ensure that the cemetery continues to serve at the same community level with succession planning always part of their plans. Anyone who would like to know more about the cemetery, or enquire about the work of the Trust can phone secretary, Julie Ormsby, on 5967 2572 on Wednesdays, mobile 0408 310 179, or visit www.upperyarracemeterywesburn.org.au for more information.

Police are investigating following a fatal collision in Marysville just before 3pm on Saturday 31 March. It is believed a vehicle and a motorcycle collided on Marysville-Woods Point Road. The yet to be identified male motorcyclist died at the scene and no one else was injured. The exact cause of the incident is yet to be determined and Marysville-Woods Point Road was closed for several hours while emergency services investigated the incident. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit an online report at www.crimestoppersvic. com.au

SES rocks at Warby By Kath Gannaway Warburton was booming over Easter with one of the main attractions the annual Easter Fundraiser run this year by the Upper Yarra SES. With the backing of the Warburton Advancement League, the SES volunteers took on the Easter family day which is a popular attraction for locals, holiday-makers and visitors. Healesville band The Rockin' Tones kept the 50s and 60s music going all afternoon, there were raffles, Easter eggs, mini-golf, market stalls and plenty to eat and drink including the SES sausage sizzle and the Warburton Primary School's famous lemonade tent. SES volunteer Merril Brunt said it was a successful first year for the unit as organisers. She said they had great support from a number of organisations including Warburton Holiday Park, Warburton/Yarra Junction Bendigo Bank and businesses from Woori Yallock through to Warburton who contributed to the raffle prizes.

Consider ecosystem Ecologist Michael Smith For trees to be in good health and provide ecosystem services, they rely on other biology to form relationships with. Let us ponder old growth trees. Due to their size, eucalypts over 100 years old are highly productive nectar sources, providing copious amounts of energy for nectar feeders (honeyeater birds and nectar loving insects) which pollinate as they go from flower to flower. These animals help turn over another generation of trees. Other insects like feeding on eucalypt parts without providing any symbiotic favour. Lerps, for instance, feed on eucalypt leaves

and beetles bore underneath outer bark layers to feed on cambium. If left uncontrolled, these insects can have devasting impacts on eucalypt health. Thankfully, in a functioning forest ecosystem insectivore birds such as treecreepers and thornbills and grub eating birds like currawongs help control their population. This helps ensure old growth trees remain alive and kicking. Large eucalypts are also well known for their hollows that provide homes for over a third of Australian birds, and for many mammals. Larger birds such as rosellas and Powerful Owls require bigger hollows; and these take some time (200 plus years) to develop. Larger limbs need to drop, followed by insects and fungi to breakdown bark material. In return, rosellas help spread seeds and Powerful Owls prey on possums that defoliate eucalypt leaves. Essentially, old growth trees are like the

heart of an ecosystem, helping keep many parts alive. Fortunately, these trees are recognised for their worth and often, but not always, are saved from the chopping block. However, old growth trees are not the only important trees in an ecosystem. Small birds, for example, prefer to travel through trees with thorns (Acacia verticillata, Acacia paradoxa) as they make their way to the larger eucalypt trees for feeding. Mammals such as possums and Sugar Gliders use young and often skinny trees to both hop across an ecosystem and for feeding. It is therefore my belief that whole ecosystems need to be considered if we want to reap the rewards of the ecosystem services provided by trees. For if you only leave a few old trees on a block or in a forest, this will not allow forest ecosystems to provide flood protection, help regulate carbon sequestration, water purification or prevent soil erosion.

LETTERS Multi-level park too complex I refer to the recent article (Mountain Views Mail, 13 March 2018) on Evelyn MP Christine Fyffe’s renewed call for the construction of a Cave Hill railway station. This is indeed welcome news; the station is essential and will be even more important after a new subdivision adds thousands of dwellings to the area. I would however request that she reconsider her proposal for a double-storey carpark at Mooroolbark station. I understand where this demand comes

from, but I urge the adoption of an alternative strategy. Parking spaces at ground level cost around $15,000 per space to build. Construction of multi-level parking costs between $40,000 and $84,000 per space, depending on the complexity of the parking building. An additional cost comes in the form of traffic congestion, which worsens when we encourage more private car traffic onto roads during peak travel periods. Improved bus services on the other hand, which could remove the need for 40-50 parking spaces per busload of passengers, can be relatively inexpensive.

The buses already exist, but are used inefficiently on outdated routes that were never planned to coordinate with trains. Some routes were actually planned, decades ago, as competition for rail services. An overhaul of bus timetables and routes could therefore reduce the parking demand at Mooroolbark station (and Lilydale, Croydon and Ringwood East) and avoid the increase in capital expenditure, and the resultant traffic congestion, that would come from building bigger carparks.

Mixed response to RFAs By Kath Gannaway Regional Forest Agreements (RFAs) covering the Central Highlands, East Gippsland and the North East have been extended by the State and Federal governments, bringing them into line with two other agreements that expire in 2020. The current RFAs, established 20 years ago, are agreements between the Federal Government and the states which aim to achieve a balance of the economic, social and environmental values of native forests. The imminent expiry of the three RFAs forced a decision. The two-year extension has been welcomed by the broader timber industry as providing certainty for the next two years, but the Greens and environmental groups have decried the move saying it opens a two-year window of opportunity for "untold damage" to Victoria's native forests. Announcing the extension on Tuesday, 27 March, the State Government said it was modernising the RFAs to support jobs and improve the long-term management of Victoria's forests. They said the two-year extension would provide certainty for timber harvesting operations and the workers in the industry while providing time for consultation with scientific bodies, industry and the community to bring the RFA framework into the current era. "Our RFAs are more than 20 years old, and don't reflect modern forest science or the needs of local communities - that's why it's so important to modernise these agreements and get them right," Minister for Environment and Climate Change, Lily D'Ambrosio said. Referencing the concurrent announcement that around 2,500 hectares of the Kuark Forest in Gippsland would be protected, Ms D'Ambrosio said "This is about protecting more old growth forests like the Kuark Forest and protecting threatened species so future generations can appreciate them." Peak associations representing Victoria's timber industry have 'cautiously' welcomed the

They are calling for a 20-year extension to all five RFAs to achieve that aim. "Victoria's highly-regulated timber industry strongly supports the RFA framework, which provides 20-year plans for the sustainable management and conservation of Australia's publicly owned forests," VAFI CEO Tim Johnston said. He called for extended RFAs to include guaranteed volume and quality of timber supply for allow for long-term investment in value adding technology.

timelines for the next two years, but these extensions are a positive signal that both governments are committed to the future of Victoria's responsibly-managed timber industry." AFPA CEO Ross Hampton said the RFAs had achieved the right balance between the environmental, social and economic considerations. "RFAs are required by law to be independently reviewed every five years, and all reviews conducted have found that they are meeting or exceeding all environmental objectives," he said. CEO of the state-owned timber harvesting and resale company VicForests, Nathan Trushall, also welcomed the extension saying it provided certainty for their customers and contractors while a more extensive review by state

and federal governments is undertaken. The Greens, and environmental groups, however, have condemned the RFAs as "archaic" and both the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews for signing off on the two-year extension. They say not only do the RFAs preserve the status quo, giving loggers guaranteed supplies of timber from native forests, but exempt them from federal environmental laws and do nothing to protect forests from logging. While welcoming the Kuark Forest decision, Victorian Senator and Greens spokesperson for Forests, Samantha Dunn MLC, said the twoyear extension, does nothing to protect highconservation forests that are home to threatened species such as Leadbeater's possum and the Greater Glider. " ... the worst thing the state and federal governments could do for our native forests is to extend them as a package (five RFAs) when the time comes," she said. Australian Greens Senator Janet Rice also labelled the decision 'extremely disappointing' saying the RFAs haven't worked. She called for an end to native forest logging and a shift to 100 per cent plantation-sourced timber. Friends of the Earth (FoE) are also critical of the decision with campaigns co-ordinator Cam Walker calling for a stop to logging. "RFAs have been an unmitigated disaster for native forests. It is essential that the state government put a moratorium on any logging that may affect endangered species while the scientific and economic reassessment is conducted," he said. While welcoming the Kuark Forest protection, he said there remain important old growth forests that are still unprotected. "This is a good start, and the next step must include the moratorium, the creation of the Great Forest National Park in the Central Highlands, and a full transition package for workers in the native forest industry," Mr Walker said.

NEWS

By Peter Douglas Yarra Ranges Council will consider increasing funding for its Civic Centre redevelopment due to an unanticipated surge in cost projection of $3.6 million dollars. At its Tuesday 27 March meeting, council voted for recommending an increase to the original $28 million budget, which was passed in December last year, citing escalating building costs and implementation of safety recommendations. As a whole, council mostly supported the recommendation, although failed to win the support of Cr Fiona McAllister, who said she could not support a 12 per cent increase in allocated funds. Yarra Ranges Council chief executive officer, Glenn Patterson, said the present economic landscape needed to be a consideration. "A routine review of the project cost plan revealed that we had only allocated a 5 per cent construction contingency, instead of the industry standard of 10," Mr Patterson said. "As the designs were signed off on 19 months ago, and there are now more publicly funded works happening across the state, the price of construction has increased substantially." If approved, the additional funds will be taken from Council's Asset Renewal Reserve funding, which is a standard approach for capital projects. "This will not impact on the delivery of any of our capital works or our asset-renewal program, and will mean we won't have to borrow as much money for the Civic Centre project,"

Former mayor, Jason Callanan, inspects loose wires inside the in-need-of-repair building. 153408 Mr Patterson said. Cr Tony Stevenson, who moved the motion, said, upon further investigation, council should find it reasonable that more funds are required. "We've moved on from a conceptual design to a detailed design. Through that process ... we've discovered things we would rather have discovered earlier," Cr Stevenson said. "It's a hot market at the moment for construction. There is a lot of activity, a lot of capital works happening. Those are the types of things that are pushing the cost." Though, Cr Stevenson said there was some positive aspects, with council needing to borrow $4.1 million less than what was originally planned. Cr Stevenson said this represented a drop in the loan amount from around 75% to 70%. Despite the sentiment, Cr Fiona McAllister

believed other options could've been explored. "I fully support the need for the redevelopment ... but, I think an increase of over 12 per cent in the project cost is something that I cannot support," Cr McAllister said. "I fully appreciate the circumstances in many of those instances that have led to unanticipated costs, but I still think that we have a set budget and should stick with that." Cr McAllister said the extra funds should be viewed in terms of how it could be used to help the community. "Whilst I think in the scheme of things, $2 to $3 million doesn't often sound like much, but I think about the bang for our buck we get from investing back into our community," Cr McAllister said. "I still believe in, and have huge faith in, the team running this project. And I have such faith that I believe they could run this project successfully without this additional money. "The return on investment (for the offices) is substantial. The buildings around us are decaying ... but I cannot support in excess of a 12 per cent increase in cost at this stage." Interestingly, concerns about a blow-out in cost were raised back in December last year, with Cr Tim Heenan flagging that possibility. Cr Heenan also queried whether, with more people working from home in the future, and sharing office space, it was the best spend of ratepayers' money. "I just hope it will be value for money and the community space and office space will serve its purpose well into the future," Cr Heenan said.

By Peter Douglas Yarra Ranges Council has shored up funding streams for many community-based events and services over the next four years. At its Tuesday 27 March meeting, council endorsed the 2018-2022 Partnership Grants program, which provides 35 community groups with almost $2 million in funds, and which will go towards supporting a healthy, connected Yarra Ranges. Of the recipients, 13 Creative Community grants will be awarded, with a total of $158,650 for the first year and 633,230 over the four-year program. In addition, 23 Connected and Healthy Communities grants will be awarded, with $334,950 in the first year and $1,332,800 over the program's entirety. Member of the grants assessment panel, Andrew Fullagar, spoke about the impact of the program. "Some of these applications you can't assess in dollars and cents alone. There are intangible benefits, including connection, care and inclusion," he said. The 2012 Yarra Ranges Citizen of the Year recipient said it was time for council to consider increasing the funding for partnership grants, given its significance to the community. Cr Fiona McAllister said the grants, in many cases, are worth much more than ensuring community connectedness. "Groups such as Lilydale Assist, the Dandenong Ranges Emergency Relief Service (DRERS) - those groups all pack a punch so much above their weight," Cr McAllister said. "As we come into winter, and after speaking with some of those groups, it is such an important sector to ensure we do get through funding. "When you look at what they provide, there are families that don't eat if that don't get the support provided by DRERS and HICCI (Healesville Inter-Church Community Care). "There are families who don't have bedding if not for this support. 12383796-ACM15-18

Christine explained that on the occasion, Matt's wife and children come to visit him at work. "It's obvious this is a family very proud of their dad," she said. "And so should they be!

ENTERTAINMENT

A strange business By Kath Gannaway It's no laughing matter for Bruce Argyle and Lindsay Frost to get together for a rehearsal on the steps of The Memo in Healesville in the early hours of a frosty week-day morning. Oh wait! It is ... it actually is a laughing matter! Healesville Toastmaster member Bruce, and Healesville Lions Club president Lindsay, have been honing their popular radio program 'A Strange Business' for a comedy night on Saturday, 14 April, as part of the inaugural The Art of Speech Community Festival. Their three Clarke and Dawes-style interviews, Entrepreneur, Mattress Tester and Termite Whisperer, are part of a two-hour cabaret-style event which includes humourous speeches, stories, jokes, a food critique, standup comedy, food and drink and more. The idea for the sketches is straight out of the classic Clarke and Dawes manual but with a particular twist. "I've always been a big fan of John Clarke because of his clever raconteur and always had an interest in clever use of speech, puns and use of words in a humourous context," Bruce, said. "The opportunity then to build a story around occupations that don't actually exist was too tempting to resist." Bruce and Lindsay write the scripts and have presented them on Yarra Valley FM 99.1 for the past six months. Moving to a live audience is tickling their funny bones! Typically, Lindsay 's response to a pretty unfunny question ... "What are you looking forward to most about getting up on stage," is pretty funny. "Getting off it alive," he quips ... just like that! (Imagine click of fingers)! Even at 7am sitting on the steps of The Memo and without his coffee hit, his wit kicks in. More seriously he says it's about making people smile. "If we get the occasional giggle, I'll be even happier." In an impressive coup, "A Strange Business"

dump-truck full of hilarity. There's lots more including winners of Best Children's Presentation at the Adelaide Fringe Festival; Become A T-Shirt Designer, and Colour Coded where kids join with the resident science expert to unlock the code to mixing colours and the visual effects of colour on the human brain. Both will be held at the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum. For all the details check out the full program at www.culturetracks.info .

The sequel to the original 2013 Pacific Rim film, Pacific Rim: Uprising is a well-constructed blockbuster brimming with spirit. Ten years after the human victory in the Kaiju War, estranged mech pilot Jake Pentecost (John Boyega) returns to the Pan-Pacific Defence Corps to train new recruits, just as a new monstrous threat emerges from within the organisation. The Pacific Rim franchise is a loving tribute to robot-themed anime and Japanese kaiju (giant monster) movies. This new instalment may have rougher pacing and some vague plot details, but it has better characters, and is still replete with outstanding action and visual flair. Boyega is a highly charismatic lead, and the cast has great chemistry. Every major charac-

ter undergoes gratifying character development, becoming more responsible and confident in their own abilities, and it's great to see Jake and haughty Major Nate Lambert (Scott Eastwood) get past their personal friction and become respectful brothers-in-arms. Cailee Spaeny is a star on the rise as Amara, a plucky young tech genius who builds her own mech. Uprising builds upon the world of the first film in intriguing ways, including grotesque genetic experiments on kaiju brains, and the plot has some well-handled twists and redherrings. The battle scenes are thrilling as ever, blending martial arts and building-shattering ballistics into elegant, visceral spectacles. Pacific Rim: Uprising is a stunning action spectacular with surprisingly strong characters.

Corporate winners By Kath Gannaway Healesville Bowling Club's 2017-18 Corporate Bowls competition saw two teams emerge as champions with Prefab Technology taking out the spring season and Brentwood Accommodation winning the summer season. The success of the event, now in its fifth year, has bowled everyone over - organisers and players, with 26 teams playing on two rinks, and a waiting list for local businesses and organisations keen to be involved. Teams of three players compete in the Wednesday evening competition which brings together businesses ranging from retailers and professionals to tradies and community organisations such as Rotary. The clubroom was buzzing and filled to capacity, with standing-room only to witness the winners of the competition receive their awards. Club president Adrian Beales congratulated the winning teams, the competing teams and the club organisers and volunteers who contribute to the success of the event. "It's really great to see so many people come down and enjoy themselves and support the club," he said. "Without all of you, there are a lot of things around the club that just would not get done." Andy MacDonald of Prefab Technology said the team, including Hilda Girney and Raymond Girney, had played a number of seasons and both the challenge of competing and the social aspect of the evening. "We love it, and I've been amazed at the number of people you meet up with throughout the season," he said. "There's no doubt small businesses benefit," he said.

Season champions. 179412 Bruce Pollard said his team, Mark Veenhuizen, Diane Thompson, David Binns, Christine Veenhuizen and Mandy Williams, felt the same. "We love playing because it's a great way to meet all the local businesses and it's good networking. "It's also a great way to support Healesville Bowls Club and have an enjoyable social night," he said. Andy MacDonald said his business is happy also to be supporting the bowls club in what

has proved a very successful fundraiser. The Corporate Challenge has also resulted in some new members for the club, and introduces people who have never played, and perhaps never considered bowls as a serious sport, to look at as a serious competitive option. Anyone businesses wanting to know more about the upcoming Summer Corporate Challenge in November should contact the club on 5962 2093.

New courts for valley netballers By Kath Gannaway Netballers at Coldstream and Yarra Junction will be playing on new and improved courts as the 2018 season gets underway. And, there's good news also for tennis players in the two towns. Construction of two new netball courts and two new tennis courts are underway at Coldstream while at Yarra Junction work is underway to refurbish the old multipurpose netball/ tennis court. At Coldstream, four clay tennis courts have been converted to one netball court and one multipurpose court for tennis and netball with new lighting. The projects are a joint Yarra Ranges Council/Federal Government initiative with Council providing $354,455 to both projects and the Federal Government putting $140,000 in at Coldstream through a Community Development Grant and $18,000 at Yarra Junction from mailcommunity.com.au

Coldstream's Geoff Duke and Narelle Collette are looking forward to the new courts. the Stronger Communities Program. Federal Member for Casey Tony Smith MP said it was exciting to see the works underway, adding that the courts would be well deserved. "I'm always seeking to ensure there is a strong partnership with Council and local clubs. This commitment is helping to deliver improved sporting facilities in Coldstream and

throughout the Valley," Mr Smith said. Narelle Collette has been playing netball for 30 years and is a member of the Coldstream Football Netball Club and Coldstream Netball Club. She said she started playing at seven years of age, and her daughter is following in her footstaps, playing in the open age group. "She started at age seven too and like me has made lifelong friends though the clubs," Ms Collette said. "People will see us training at the new courts and we hope they might want to watch and contact us to join and get involved." Coldstream Social and Sporting Club President Geoff Duke thanked Yarra Ranges Council and the Federal Government saying the project started about eight years ago with an approach to the council to improve the facilities for netball training. Both sites are expected to be completed by May.

High drama in shootout By Ron Hottes The 2018 Twilight Shootout: There were 11 intrepid qualifiers to begin. This dwindled down to a 'final 3' by the time we reached the 9th. A healthy crowd of 30-odd stalwart members watched the proceedings unfold. And they were entertained by some high drama. Chief Organiser, Jaqui Hall, made sure some of the 'putt-offs' (to eliminate where there were two fighting to avoid that) were of diabolical difficulty. Talk about pressure! There were drives that finished OOB (out-of-bounds, for the uninitiated). There were balls that weren't OOB - but might as well have been, in thick rough, where 'hail-Mary's' were called upon! But, finally, after more than two hours of constant tension - and great entertainment for the spectators - there were three 'survivors', who walked up to the 9th tee, a short but tricky Par 3! Facing them was heartache - or redemption. Stylish left-hander, Sam-Patrick, was first to hit. His tee-shot missed the green, but was just off the 'apron'. Top-qualifier, Shane Campbell, was next to hit. On the green and safe! The final participant, the experienced and consistent David Hatt, also landed on the green. Sam took three more shots to record a bogie 4. The other two shared pars, leaving Sam out of the action, but pleased with his meritorious effort. Shane and Hatty then proceeded to play the hole 4 more times before Shane won with a par, as Hatty missed a curly four-foot putt! Congratulations to 'all' qualifiers, but particularly to those last two 'survivors', who gave the spectators nearly half-an-hour of extra entertainment! For the next 12 months, Shane will have bragging-rights as the 2018 Twilight Champion. The other important award, the Eclectic, for best score on each hole over the Twilight season, went to Ash Hall with a 53; no doubt helped by a hole-in-one on the 12th! Geoff-Fall was the r/up, scoring 54.5. The committee, and members, would like to thank John Hall for his excellent organization over the six months of this stellar event (which saw 76 of our members take part). It is probably the most popular event on our calendar, and John's effort is mighty indeed and much appreciated. Wednesday 28 March: Stableford, for the Warburton GC Resurrection Cup: The winners, after much 'shuffling' by our new captain, were the team of Neil Leckenby, Gerry Hadfield and Noel Cross. The r/up team was John Hall, Stan Slusarek and Trish Eldridge, who also won the individual voucher with 39 points to 'take home the chockies!' The only NTP given out went to Linda-Lay, with a great second shot on the 17th. Saturday 31 March: Stableford: A Grade was taken out by David Hatt, continuing his consistent form from the shootout. He racked-up 37 points. Also scoring 37 was Sean-Patrick to grab the B Grade voucher. The day's r/up was Peter Fox (36). Balls got down to 33. NTPs were won by Shane Campbell (3rd), 'Happy' Gilmore (5th), Tex (9th), Sean Patrick (12th) and Captain Cross (15th). Tuesday, 3 April, 2018

Straight-shooters shine By John Wood The weather didn't look too bright for the annual Community Bank Cup at the Woods Point Gun Club, with a cold wind and incessant showers at the start of competition. However, by about 11.30am the conditions cleared, the rain stopped and the sun came out for a pleasant afternoon. The Warburton & Yarra Junction Community Bank Branches were proud sponsors of the entire programme that started with the traditional Eye Opener of 10 targets points score Double Barrel with cash prizes for all winners. Darren Clark, Mick Ward, Phillip Desmond & Daniel Chinn, 30/30, shared the AA cash while Peter West's 30/30 gave him all of the A Grade winnings. B Grade was shared by Robert Lay, Steven Bedggood & Carol Stokes, 29/30, while C Grade saw Greg & Peter Shahin, 30/30, in the money. The Main Event was the Community Bank Cup over 60 targets: 15 Single Barrel, 15 Double Barrel, 15 Double Barrel Points & 15 Continental, with a possible score of 90 points. This event also included the Champion of Champions for all shooters who had won an event sash or trophy or a High Gun sash in 2017. After four spirited rounds of 15 targets, Ward & Clark brought in 88/90 & after a short shoot off Mick was awarded the Community Bank Gold Cup, the AA Grade sash and the Champion of Champions sash, 98/100, with Clark 2nd in AA Grade, 87/90. Phillip Desmond's score of 86/90 was a good AA Grade score but not enough for today. No more shoot-offs were required with Ian Findlay, 83/90, & Allan Kidd, 81/90, 1st & 2nd in A Grade. Geoff Hill, 84/90, & Steven Bedggood, 83/90, took the B Grade sashes with Ron Press, 75/90 & Peter Shahin, 73/90, successful in C Grade.

Worthy Winners all. Peter West, Ian Findlay, Geoff Hill, Darren Clark, Mick Ward - Community Bank Cup & Champion of Champions Winner, Peter Shahin, Ron Press with Shaedin Bannerman in front, Allan Kidd and Steven Bedggood. 179293 The day was completed by a 20 target Community Bank Handicap Championship that resulted in only one perfect 20/20 score by Peter West to take the sash. A short shoot off between Steven Bedggood, Shane Stokes, Ron Press & Phillip Desmond, all 19/20, resulted with Stokes 2nd, 21/23, Bedggood 3rd, 26/28, & Desmond 4th, 25/28.

The Community Bank Overall High Gun had to be shot off between Clark & Desmond, 106/110 each, with Clark eventually taking the sash, 109/114. Shaedin Bannerman at his first shoot won the Junior Encouragement prize. A hearty lunch, afternoon tea and a big raffle saw all go home happy and replete.
