Boundary shift By Peter Douglas, Derek Schlennstedt, Rowan Forster In what could prove an election-defining decision, the Australian Electoral Commission has announced a major shake-up of the Casey and La Trobe federal electorates. Under a draft proposal, released on Friday 6 April, the Casey electorate will shift further south-west and snap up La Trobe's hills-based communities, effectively aligning Casey's boundaries with the local government area of Yarra Ranges. Casey will gain major townships including Belgrave, Upper Ferntree Gully and Lysterfield. The sweeping changes to electoral boundaries come with a federal election potentially only 12 months away. Traditionally, Casey is a safe Liberal stronghold, while La Trobe is marginal, with Jason Wood claiming a narrow victory from Labor's

Simon Curtis in the 2016 election. Mr Wood confirmed he has been in close contact with Mr Smith, in an effort to ensure outstanding commitments would be met. "To me there's very much unfinished business on three projects I'm working on at the moment. One is the Ridge Walk, already committed $2.5 million and trying to get another $5 million federal funds," Mr Wood said. "The Mount Dandenong Tourist Road initial commitment we made is $10 million; this is safety of cyclist and widening roads in section include retaining walls. "I'm also right behind the Performing Arts Centre in the Sherbrooke community school. "The good thing is with the redistribution, if it did end up going that way, I'm working with Tony Smith who would take those areas and is very supportive of working with me on those three projects." Meanwhile, committee chair and electoral

commissioner, Tom Rogers, said the redistribution of the electorates was required to allow space for Victoria's new seat, Fraser The La Trobe electorate is projected to have 116,587 voters by August next year, which exceeds the maximum number permitted by the Electoral Act. "The high population growth in Victoria, together with the dispersed spread of electors has resulted in the Redistribution Committee proposing significant change to Victoria's electoral division boundaries," he said. He said McMillan, too, was in danger from exceeding its maximum number of electors. "A number of consequential changes were made across the state to not only the numerical criteria but also align communities of interest where possible," Mr Rogers said. Redrawn electoral boundaries have historically factored into election results, particularly when key towns and cities are removed.

The new federal electorate for western Melbourne, Fraser, is set to be established, taking the number of electorates from 37 to 38. Anyone with an interest in these proposals can make a written submission to the Australian Electoral Commission at by 6pm on Friday 4 May. All objections will be published on the AEC's website at from Monday 7 May. Comments on objections can be lodged until 6pm on Friday 18 May and will also be published on the AEC website from Monday 21 May. A final determination of the boundaries and names of the electoral divisions will be published on Friday 13 July. *The Mail has attempted to contact Tony Smith for comment and will endeavour to publish a response.

Talk about a festival! By Kath Gannaway The Memo in Healesville was filled with every manifestation of the spoken word over the weekend as hundreds of people immersed themselves in Healesville Toastmasters Club's inaugural The Art of Speech Community Festival. Yarra Ranges Councillor Fiona McAllister launched the festival on the Friday night speaking of how she found her voice, the people who inspired her and the power she has found in speech in her work and her role as a councillor.

The festival included the Community Spirit Art Exhibition bringing together local artists and community groups, workshops, storytelling, inspirational speeches, a formal debate, a Toastmasters demonstration meeting by Wandin Toastmasters and poetry that ranged from C J Dennis to Catherine Nolan's Rhythm & Rhyme workshop for children, Simon Oats' contemporary take on Orpheus in the Underworld and evocative love poetry from around the world by Exit Theatre. Among several highlights were the sell-out 'A Strange Business' comedy night which put

the comedic talents of local and neighbouring Toastmasters in the spotlight, and Exit Theatre's closing event "Springer". Healesville Toastmasters Club president and co-coordinator Cora Zon said the festival was a huge success with people already talking about a 2019 festival. "The response was very much about the connection of art, creativity and community and that people want to forge more relationships and build on the connections that were made over the weekend and leading up to the festival.

Festival co-coordinator Kim Harris said there was an intrigue and curiosity about the festival that got people thinking about the art of speech. "There was a recurring theme of 'you really have something here' and that it was valued, inspiring, entertaining, enriching and fun. "It's rewarding to think that when people think about their dealings with us and the festival there's a real sense of enjoyment and that people left with smiles on their faces."

Rotary award for Murray Healesville businessman Murray Hardinge is the 2018 recipient of the Rotary Club of Healesville's Ron Goding Award. Presented annually the award recognises excellence in business and moral standards and perpetuates the memory of past Rotarian Ron Goding, a founding member of the Healesville club. Mr Goding's granddaughter, Jacinta Clemente attended the presentation dinner. Mr Hardinge came to Healesville in 1956 and as a trained radio technician worked throughout Australia and the Solomon Islands installing two-way radio and related towers up to 150 metres high. He established Seccom Australia Pty Ltd in 1982 and has grown the business from installation of radios and towers to include security systems. Making the presentation on 4 April, Rotary's Director of Vocational Services, John Robinson, said the company had also become the largest privately owned company in Australia for the supply and maintenance of diesel generators servicing telcos, emergency services and other government organisations on a 24/7 basis. Mr Robinson paid tribute to Mr Hardinge personally. "He is an amazing man with many technical qualifications, an executive member of the Victorian Security Institute, and was a member of Apex and SES and of Badger Creek CFA for 35 years." He said he also supported local welfare provider HICCI, donating thousands of dollars' worth of food each year. "He is a truly worthy recipient of the Ron Goding Award," Mr Robinson concluded. Mr Hardinge was presented with a citation and an original painting. The perpetual burl was passed on to him by previous recipient Catherine Crow.

Marking the Milestones of our times By Kath Gannaway Healesville & District Historical Society has released the third volume of their Images of Time series 'Marking the Milestones'. The 226 page volume covering the years 1950 to 1994 completes the series of pictorial histories produced by the Society and ends with the amalgamation of the Upper Yarra, Lilydale, Sherbrooke and Healesville shires to form the Yarra Ranges Shire. The four-year project is a trip down memory lane covering an era which is within the memory of many of the district's residents from teenagers to the baby boomers ... and beyond. Under topics that include businesses, schools, Coranderrk, tourism sport, community services, industries and employment, buildings of interest and events such as the Hospital Queens and Carnival, the 1962 bushfires and the two centenaries, the town's 100-years celebration in 1964 and the centenary of the shire

in 1987 ... Marking the Milestones is a beautifully presented balance of photographs and information that is not only a great resource, but a compelling page-turner. H&DHS president Kevin Mason in the foreword to the book said the challenge was to produce a book that was cost effective but still did justice to the contributions of photos and materials. "None of the books in the series is an attempt to record all events or all people and families; they are snapshots only, taken to try to record at least part of the remarkable history of Healesville," he said. 'Marking the Milestones' completes the series that started with Volume 1 'From a Village to a Town' 1864 to 1920, and Volume 2 'Coming of Age' documenting the years from 1920 to 1950. The book is available from the Historical Society on Wednesday and Friday afternoons and Saturday morning, from Yarra Ranges

IN BRIEF Stolen goods recovered

Members of Healesville Historical Society with Marking the Milestones 179823 Picture: Kath Gannaway.

A 46-year-old man will face court following the recovery of stolen goods from a Badger Creek property. Police recovered trailers stolen from Steels Creek and Yarra Glen and tools and other property stolen during burglaries at Healesville and Dixons Creek. The man was arrested and charged on Wednesday, 11 April by Healesville Police and has been bailed to appear at Ringwood Magistrate's Court at a date to be set. Sgt Stewart Thompson said while most people are now conscious of the need to secure their trailers with a trailer lock, extra vigilance is needed where trailers are open to view.

If I was prone to anger, I would be very angry indeed about the likes of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; letter-writers Clare Haywood (Frustrated and Angry!, 20 March) and Lynette Ward (Haining Farm, 20 March), who have attempted to employ primeval public fear of bushfire to poorly disguise their hidden LNP-supported agenda to reverse the Haining Farm decision. This decision came out of particularly extensive community consultation and it is something that all clear-thinking Victorians can feel very proud of, especially because of the role it will play in preserving our highly threatened state faunal emblems of the Leadbeaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possum and helmeted honeyeater. Yes, ok, I am an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;academicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by profession, but I had 15 years of professional fire-fighting experience before entering academia and I have lived on and protected 30 acres of rainforest adjacent to the Water Catchment for 40 happy years, notwithstanding annual summer fire seasons, including bushfire up to the house. The property still teems with wildlife and I feel safer here with the bushfire protection measures I have taken than if I lived in the township. I am neither a member of the Greens or Labor and, to my great shame, I made no contribution to the Haining Farm project. But I recently heard through Landcare circles about your desperate agenda and have been expecting to see a deluge of anti-Haining Farm revegetation scare-campaigning. I think, however, that sensible people of this region will just see it for what it is and ignore it in the knowledge of the great tourism and conservation asset Haining Farm will become - like our Healesville Sanctuary. Those touting the anti-Haining propaganda no doubt think, like Clare, that they have the perfect solution to bushfires; namely, remove all natural vegetation and the pesky native vermin that infests it and lets the cattle in.

Smart drains By Peter Douglas

Cycling for Children of Cambodia (from left) Geoff Shanks, Andrew Young and Mary Young.

Cycling for schools By Kath Gannaway Riding the Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trial is one of the most enjoyable things to do on an autumn Sunday but when a chance comes to 'value-add' the experience, everyone's a winner. Children of Cambodia is offering that chance on Sunday, 29 April, when they hold their multi-distance bike ride along the trail. There are three options starting at Seville with a 18km ride to Woori Yallock, 34km to Yarra Junction and 51km to Warburton, all return to Seville. Geoff Shanks organises the ride each year to support the work of Children of Cambodia

Foundation which was established in 2010 to increase primary school attendance in rural northern Cambodia. "We wanted to ensure that they achieved reasonable literacy and numeracy skills by the time they reached Year 6," Geoff said of the students who live in desperately poor circumstances. "The villages where we are operating are amongst the most impoverished and many families simply cannot afford to send their children to school," he said. Education is not compulsory in Cambodia and the cost of stationery and uniforms, and just getting to schools which are often beyond walking distance, are some of the hurdles that

need to be overcome. From supporting one school they now support 10, and in the order of 3000 students with data indicating that over 90 per cent of eligible children now attend school in the communities in which Children of Cambodia is working. "The Cycle for Charity on the Rail Trail will play an important part in assisting with the challenge. Bookings are essential for the ride which costs $30 for adults with kids riding free.

Yarra Ranges Council is trialling newly developed 'smart drain' technology, which is designed to significantly reduce the likelihood of flooding from overflows within the municipality. In a first not just for the region, but Australia-wide, the trial has taken place in Mount Evelyn. The technology uses sonar and camera sensors to monitor water-levels and flow-rates from within roadside stormwater drains. The smart drains initiative also uses software that provides a dashboard view of the data, which offers a real-time view of the drain infrastructure. The objective is to provide immediate alerts so blockages can be addressed before inundation occurs. Yarra Ranges Mayor, Cr Len Cox, said the technology had huge potential within the flood-prone shire. "Many of our stormwater pits, especially those in flood-prone areas, could be checked daily or several times per day," Cr Cox said. "This technology informs us quickly that there is a blockage, so we can send someone there immediately and have it removed and cleaned before further flooding and complications arise. "We are proud to be trailing this in the Yarra Ranges as an Australian first and, if the results are positive, we hope it can be adopted throughout the municipality." Yarra Ranges Council faces numerous local flood-management and drainage challenges, with more than 4900 properties known to be at risk of flooding from waterways or underground drains. Adding to these challenges are long-term future pressures on the existing drainage system associated with urban consolidation and an increase in rainfall intensity, with about 7% of properties within the Yarra Ranges Council being prone to flooding.

Patrons drink to festival By Derek Schlennstedt You couldn't go thirsty at the Yarra Valley Beer and Cider Festival on 14 April, which had over 25 craft beers and ciders to try from. Even the wild weather couldn't deter over 1000 keen connoisseurs and excited neophytes from taking part in the festivities and trying a few of the tasty tipples that were on offer. Returning for its third year, and run by Wandin Rotary, the event proved to be another success with a wide range of brewers attracting patrons from all over Melbourne and even the state. Organiser Warwick Bisley from Rotary Club of Wandin said that even though the weather was less than favourable, there were still a lot of smiling faces. "Considering the conditions it's going extremely well, and most importantly everybody here is enjoying themselves, lots of smiling faces and people leaving saying it was a great event so it's good." For the breweries and cideries, the event is always looked upon favourably and offers them a chance to connect with their customers and a new audience, especially for those from different areas. Southern Bay Brewery, from Geelong, said that while they don't have much business in the Yarra Valley it was great to engaged with the general public in a new area and gain some feedback. "It's good to engage with the general public, because they're our market they are the ones who go into place and suggest what they like,"

A couple from Melbourne making the most of the vast array of beers and ciders available for tasting.

Callum Nicholls and Jonno from Odyssey Tavern and Brewery located in Mount Duneed. Their Coffee stout and IPA were a favourite among patrons. Phil Rutjens, Brewery Manager said. There were plenty of local breweries too making their mark including St Ronan's from Healesville, and Grand Ridge Brewery from Mirboo. The funds raised from the event go to youth activities in the Yarra Ranges area, including support for disadvantaged youth, homeless youth, youth with other issues, and supporting education (including STEM) and building youth leadership skills.

Helen, Marie, Phil, Alex and Charlotte traveled all the way from England for the festival and conceded that although our Cider is better the beer is better in the UK.


Where art and friends meet A new art group in Healesville aims to provide a broad brush environment where people are invited to spend time pursuing their artistic interests in a friendly, fun and welcoming space. Local artists and sisters-in-law Christine Cafarella-Pearce and Lorraine Cafarella are coordinators for Art Alive which will meet for the first time on Thursday, 19 April. "We want to create a space where there is a friendly, non-judgemental environment and the opportunity to make lasting friendships," Christine said. "Art Alive aims to be a place where creativity is developed, encouraged and explored in a friendly, fun environment. A place where people are free to explore their inner artist using any medium such as paper, pencil, paint, wool, metal, tiles, clay, beads, glass. Bring your favourite medium and inspire others."

Participants can work on their own project or join with others on a project, do something for a local charity, a project with their child, engage with like-minded friends to visit galleries, do professional workshops, or go on 'paint'outs' with others. Some suggestions for activities are painting, drawing, mosaics, scapbooking, glass painting, wood sculpting, whittling, knitting, quilting, embroidery, colouring books, card making, spinning ... any art of craft in fact that can be safely done indoors. The group is open to everyone and no prior experience in art of craft is required. Art Alive will be a great space to explore something new. Art Alive will run from 11am to 3pm at the Liberty Family Church on the corner of Lilydale and McGrettons roads, Healesville, every second week.

We will bury you The Death of Stalin Starring Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale and Jeffrey Tambor Rated MA15+ The Death of Stalin is a darkly hilarious historical comedy-drama directed by master satirist Armando Iannucci. After Joseph Stalin (Adrian McLoughlin), the Supreme Leader of the Soviet Union, dies in 1953, his Politburo advisors scramble for power and influence in the new era, with the cunning Khruschchev (Steve Buscemi) and ruthless Beria (Simon Russell Beale) locking horns over control of the USSR. Iannucci has a gift for crafting dry laughout-loud humour around despicable people, usually in a governmental setting; he's arguably most famous for creating The Thick of It, a searing satire of British politics. For impact and brevity, The Death of Stalin

Movies at Healesville and Warburton Thu 19 Apr - Wed 25 Apr

fictionalises certain elements of the aftermath of Stalin's death, but the film really lays bare the self-deception, scheming and rampant ego in Soviet politics, while still being incredibly funny. The film is full of witty dialogue and largerthan-life performances, and the frequent humour is integrated organically into the plot. Khrushchev's plans progress in a compelling steady build, and the film maintains heavy tension both through nominal Premier Malenkov's (Jeffrey Tambor) vain incompetence and Beria's more sinister presence, especially with the latter having overseen Stalin's massive political purges. Confronting and funny in equal measure, The Death of Stalin is a brilliantly-written satire of political sadism.

Anzac clash has history By Kath Gannaway

Club presidents Rod Barnard and Greg Hay with the Anzac Day perpetual shield. 179711 battlefields as a means of escape and recreation. Lieutenant L.G. Short in a letter home in 1917 recalled the true nature of footy on the Front saying the playing field was within shell range. "Every inch of it has been won from the enemy by the hardest fighting, of which evidence lay all around," he wrote. " ... but it is certain that the game had given them fresh heart," he concluded, reflecting also that it had carried their thoughts back to the happy days of football back home. "And, it is in such happy thoughts and memories that we soldiers live," he wrote.

Rod Barnard said Anzac Day for WarburtonMillgrove starts early with most of the club attending the Dawn Service in Millgrove. "That sets the tone for the day," he said. "It's an important match when we look at what the diggers went through, and it's also about supporting the RSLs. "There is always a good feeling around the club and between the two clubs. We have a good rapport, good respect for each other and that makes a big difference." He said there are a number of families around the area who have had family members serve, including his. His son Ben was in

the army for nine years, including time in Iraq. "Now it's our chance to make sure this legacy lives on," he said. On the ground, spectators can expect a hard-fought game. "It's usually a fantastic battle between these two teams, and we've had wins and losses over time," he said. "It's an important clash and it brings out the best in everybody - players, supporters and the officials." The Warburton-Millgrove vs Healesville Anzac Day match will be held at Yarra Junction on Wednesday, 25 April.

Anzac Day is the day we remember all Australians who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Australian Rules had been played at Healesville for around 30 years when Australia's first soldiers headed overseas to fight in WWI. With the Warburton Football Club starting up in 1906 and Millgrove in 1908, football was already part and parcel of community life in the Yarra Valley, and as in the VFL in Melbourne at the time, the exodus of fit, young men, had an impact. For the past 10 years, football has been part of the Anzac tradition in Yarra Valley with traditional rivals Healesville and WarburtonMillgrove players lining up to hear their local RSL representatives recite The Ode before they take to the ground to play for the honour of winning the Anzac Shield. Presidents of both clubs, Greg Hay at Healesville, and Rod Barnard at WarburtonMillgrove, leave no doubt that the relevance and reverence of the Anzac Day match is embraced by the clubs. Greg Hay said the match had become an unshakeable tradition - played always on the day - 25 April. "Our thought when it started nearly 10 years ago was that it was a great way to have two clubs that have longstanding histories of playing against each other honour the people who served for us," he said. "Personally, I think it's the most special day of the year, and not just in football, and I have no doubt that it is very special for the boys as well. They all want to play on that day." The Australian War Memorial records that the AFL considered suspending the season due to the onset of WW1, but the game went ahead and the season commenced on 24 April, 1915 - an ominous date as it turned out. Australians imported Aussie Rules to the

Anzac commemorations By Kath Gannaway 1918 saw the end of WWI, but in April, three years on from Gallipoli, Australian troops were still fighting on the Western Front. Bogged down in the muddy trenches of France and Belgium the Allies, including thousands of Australian troops, were into the fourth year of unimaginable bloodshed and destruction. November and the end of the 'war to end all wars' was an unimaginable six months away. It was a war that, for Australia, remains the costliest conflict in terms of deaths and casualties. From a population of fewer than five million, 416,809 men enlisted, of whom more than 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner. On Anzac Day, Wednesday, 25 April, as the sun rises, and in commemorative marches around the Yarra Valley, thousands of community members will remember them all, and those who have died and suffered in the wars and conflicts that were yet to come, Healesville RSL's Dawn Service is at 5.45am at the RSL, followed by a 10am Commemorative March from Church Street to the Memorial Hall, assembling at 9.30am.

It’s all happening here It's been a busy start to the year at the Yarra Glen Living and District Living and Learning Centre (YGDLLC). The centre has been advocating for muchneeded funding from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) under the Neighbourhood House Coordination Program Funding. The funding will be vital for the centre's future and in turn for the Yarra Glen and district community; however, the process does take three to four years. Over the years YGDLLC has relied heavily on the goodwill and time of volunteers to keep it functioning. Although volunteers will always play an important role in the centre, an increase in financial support is vital to maintaining the momentum achieved over the past four years. In February, the centre partnered with nine other community organisations to hold the Anzac Avenue Community Groups Open Day. The event gave the community an opportunity to engage with each organisation, highlighting health, educational, social benefits and the important role each organisation plays in the community. Having completed Stage 1 of the YGDLLC Community Edible Forest Garden, the centre was successful with a grant application from Connected Communities Melbourne enabling Stage 2 of the project to begin. The garden's main purpose is to help subsidize fees for activities based around it. This helps ensure access is available for the whole community to develop skills and knowledge in how to develop their own backyard food havens and manage waste with an environmental

Passionate about promoting healthy lifestyles and social connections, Cire Community House has adopted the Community Heart Walkers initiative as part of their 2018 program. Community Heart Walkers is a Heart Foundation initiative, which all Upper Yarra residents are invited to join. The initiative is designed to improve health and fitness; get people out of the house and into fresh air and provide the chance to meet others. Facilitated by Cire volunteer Caryn, the walking group meets every Tuesday at 9.30am from Yarra Junction. The walks can provide participants with benefits such as improved physical and mental health through exercise, a social outlet and an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful surrounds of the Upper Yarra Valley. "I was new to the area when I saw the sign in front of the community house advertising for volunteers," Caryn said. "When I went in to inquire, Simone (Community House Coordinator) told me they were looking for a Walk Organiser. I jumped at the chance to get out and explore this wonderful area." Participation in the group is by optional gold coin donation. All money raised by Cire Community House's Community Heart Walkers will go to the Heart Foundation which funds heart research and health education. All participants need to bring is water, comfortable clothing, walking shoes, sunscreen

Cire Community School students Bridgette and Deanna.

Payge, Trisha and Ian Seppings help out in the school's registered kitchen.

Filling in the learning gap 2017 saw the start of the Junior High School program at Cire Community School's Yarra Junction campus, taking the school from a senior secondary to a Year 7 to 12 school. The initiative has provided a missing link for the community and an important alternative program for students in the Yarra Ranges and beyond. Young people from Healesville, Chirnside Park, Lilydale, Emerald and Cockatoo now also have access to a complimentary bus service which links these communities to our Yarra Junction campus.

The Cire Junior High School program has grown out of the school's successful existing VCAL program, with a strong emphasis on hands-on and applied learning. The school provides students access to a flexible and supportive program that aims to fill student learning gaps, support individual needs, maintain school engagement and build a sense of community. Opportunities for young people to interact with their community and to take their learning outside of the classroom each week are important elements of the junior school program.

The school has established a strong link with Yarra Valley ECOSS which has provided many opportunities for the development and refinement of applied learning activities. Year 7-9 students have engaged in a range of projects at ECOSS including establishing a "frog bog", planting new vegetation, building rammed earth structures and experimenting with the construction of straw bale walls. Cire Community School's Year 9 program is developing and expanding in 2018 and is now operating from a renovated classroom in the old church at the Yarra Junction campus.

The school has created a dedicated learning space and given ownership of the space to the Year 9 students. There is a big focus on cooking and applied learning in the program, with the students currently running a canteen for the school from the registered kitchen. This year Cire is also partnering with a local vineyard to provide students with an opportunity to work towards attaining a Certificate I in Conservation and Land Management. Please contact the school on 1300 835 235 to arrange a tour, or attend the open evening which is coming up on 3 May from 4pm to 7pm.

Engaged with education At Cire Community School, they believe that all young people should be able to positively engage in education regardless of their life circumstances and any barriers to learning. Education should not just focus on academic attributes but on the whole person, providing active support for their social and emotional growth, while supporting the development of the knowledge and skills needed to flourish in a rapidly changing world. They work within the framework of the Berry Street School Practice Approach, which informs teaching, learning, welfare and care of the students at our school.

There is a special focus at our school on building positive relationships that are grounded in unconditional positive regard for all members of our community. The school's focus on applied learning and individualised programs has resulted in the development of what is known passion project time. Students are able to invest time and energy each week into learning more about something they are interested in and passionate about. Over the last 12 months, students have engaged in learning a new language, developing their artistic skills, producing music, learning

an instrument and reconditioning lawn mowers and motor bikes, just to name a few of the areas of passion. Working with pre-school aged children is an area of interest for a number of the junior school students and is closely linked to their career aspirations. These students have made the most of our links with Cire Children's Services and are spending time volunteering in the children's centre and are learning more about the education and care of young people each week. These programs have encouraged young people to engage in education by building their confidence in order for them to achieve their goals.

Junior sedans headline speedway action Warburton golf results By Dean Thompson

For a long time, Alexandra & District Speedway Club have prided themselves on how they support and develop junior speedway racers into the adult years in the sport of Speedway. This weekend, the race meeting headlines junior sedan racers from the national division and the Victorian state division with features on offer for both. In the national division, juniors that race cars up to 1500cc, numerous competitors from South Australia and the south-west of Victoria will head into town to compete with Alexandra's local kids keen to take the challenge up to the front runners in the state point score for the Junior Sedan Promotional Association. Lilydale racer Kasey Garlick, Ricky Cornwall from Kilsyth, Ryan Harris, Callum Potter and Courtney Meakins will represent the host club Alexandra in the state point score event while numerous local B Grade competitors will compete in the B Grade racing with Breanna Simpson, Chloe Ringwood racer Sheerman, Sharlotte McPherson, Linken Paterson and Rhys Meakins amongst the front runners currently racing at Alexandra Speedway. Competition from the visiting race drivers will be strong, the chances of Alexandra members taking victory in both classes is also high. Kasey Garlick has set records this season and has had close battles with Cornwall through the year wherever they have gone, Harris also set records in his only appearance at Alexandra earlier in the season. The Victorian Speedway Council Juniors feature which allows V8 and 6 cylinder powered race cars, has attracted eleven competitors with from very strong cars from the Shepparton and North East Victoria areas to do battle with the Alexandra members. Nick Cherry, Connor Donegan, Jack Brudenell and Rhys Meakins will have their hands full with Lachie Fitzpatrick and Tristan McGraw from the Goulburn Valley club and Toby Carmichael from the Corowa - Rutherglen club and Zac Twomey and Janie Patton from the Wangaratta club amongst the entries.

By Ron Hottes Wednesday 11 April: 4BBB Stableford: The day's best score was recorded by Clint Toohey and Jim Stewart, who, together, accrued 49 superb points! The r/up pair, who would have won most times with a score of 48, were neighbours, Meredith Nursey and Gerry Hadfield. (Meredith clearly plays her best golf when she's on holiday; you need to retire Ms Nursey!). Pairs who scored 44+ earned a ball. The three daily NTPs went to Bill Dunn (3rd), Chris Fall ( 7th) & Ossie McClay (9th). Saturday 14 April: Stableford: There were no outstanding scores, but Danny Fox, who has a most consistent record in poor weather conditions, overcame all to score 36 points. Danny won the day on a c/back from Chris 'Fuzzy' Fall. Balls went down to 33 as there were plenty who scored 33,34 or 35! NTPs were won by John Baxter (3rd - it's not always you, Harrison). Kenno (5th), John Comerford (9th), Sam Dennis (12th) and to 'Happy Gilmore' (15th).

Strive for success The Lilydale Project reference group began meeting this year to influence and support the development of a long term township master plan for Lilydale. The plan will co-ordinate Council and community activities and focus on advocacy, infrastructure and attracting investment over the next 20 or more years. The group is made up of 24 community members and Council Officers who meet once a month. This approach was inspired by the success of the Yarra Glen People's Panel and their achievements. Potential members were selected through a random mail out to more than 800 Lilydale residents from the electoral role, inviting them to express interest in joining. The final group was selected by an independent panel based on a representative sample including age, gender, volunteer history and connection to Lilydale. Made up of a broad cross section of the Lilydale community, the group includes enthusiastic young people, wise elders, business owners, volunteers and people with disabilities. Director of Social and Economic Development Ali Wastie said Council recognised that ensuring Lilydale's potential was fulfilled as the gateway to the Yarra Valley would benefit the entire municipality. "The Lilydale Project Reference Group is a great way to harness this energy and to highlight opportunities for change in response to the community's expressed needs," Ms Wastie said. "Lilydale is under the State Government's spotlight given plans for the level crossing removal on the Maroondah Highway, Cave Hill quarry development, and investment in Box Hill Institute Lakeside Campus." Lilydale resident and architecture student Rebecca Andre said she joined the group to

The Lilydale Project reference group members (l-r): Steven Foggie, John Rodgers, Max Manning, Timothy Kaddis, Paula Baxter, Nigel Smith, Rebecca Andre and Helen Ruddell. 179866 use her design skills to make Lilydale a better place to live for future generations. "It's been really good to get to know the others in the group. I'm working on developing some designs for the project," Ms Andre said. "There has been scope for individuals to take up a portfolio and use their professional experience." So far the meetings have focused on the Lilydale Level Crossing Removal, affordable housing, Lilydale Quarry Redevelopment, community planning and discussion about the need for the Lilydale Bypass. Many people attended the Lilydale Summit in September last year to share their ideas. More than 80 per cent of attendees supported the following projects:

· New Olinda Creek pathways · New pedestrian links and wayfinding · Renewal of Lilydale Station precinct · Castella Street upgrade mixed-use medium density develop· New ment pedestrian and civic spine from Melba · New Park to Lillydale Lake Highway and Main Street up· Maroondah grade · New Market Square/Town Square More than 350 votes for projects were cast at the summit. Council is committed to getting further community feedback and refining the project ideas. Key themes emerging from more than 170 written comments were:
