By George! OAM By Kath Gannaway George Miller is very much at home in a shed ... whether it's his own, or a shed shared with others.

Co-founder and president of the Yarra Glen & District Men's Shed, Mr Miller's contribution to the Yarra Glen community has been recognised with a Medal (OAM) of the Order of Australia in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

His forte is recognising a need ... and getting it sorted. It's a 'trait' that started when his children were young - pony club for daughter Wendy and scouts for son Dean.

"The kids in Yarra Glen had ponies but nowhere to ride and nobody to teach them," Mr Miller explained. Continued on page 5

Little bonsai are on show

By Kath Gannaway There's a whole lot more to growing in miniature than meets the eye, and members of the Yarra Valley Bonsai Society are very keen to explain it all. The Society, which was established in 2008, is holding its annual Bonsai Show at the Wandin North Public Hall on Saturday 23, and Sunday 24 June. "We call it a show, not an exhibition, because our members show the trees they have worked on and that could be a relatively new tree or a well-established bonsai that is 50 or 60 years old," said member Rudi said. The show will have bonsai and ikebana

Delicious home made pies including our famous Bushman and Pepper pies, plus pasties and sausage rolls.

Bulk buy solar for Murrindindi hard at work developing this Program for some time and was really excited about its rollout over coming weeks and delivery over the next 12 months. "Council has a strong focus on supporting and strengthening environmental sustainability in our communities. We feel that improving the uptake of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels is a great way to do that as they provide a renewable source of energy. And, that's not to mention the benefits people get from helping to

keep electricity costs down. Community information seminars will provide details on how the quotation, sales and installations process will work, as well as the products and warranties available under the Dindi Bulk Buy Program.

Murrindindi Shire Council has launched its Dindi Bulk Buy Solar Program. The Dindi Bulk Buy Program is a partnership between Council and the Yarra Energy Foundation which aims to give locals access to advice about solar energy and discounted solar products and systems. Murrindindi Shire Council's Natural Environment and Climate Change Portfolio Councillor Rebecca Bowles said Council had been

From font page He knew of the concept of pony clubs and decided that's exactly what Yarra Glen needed. He started with a bit of lobbying of Healesville Council along the lines of "we want to start a pony club - what about letting us have that bit of land at the Yarra Glen showgrounds?" The council agreed and a public meeting followed that saw Mr Miller elected president of the new Yarra Glen & District Pony Club. Fourteen kids turned up to the first rally and with an offer of an instructor for 12 months free of charge, the club flourished. Forty years later, having up-sized to grounds in Yarra View Road, it continues to thrive. Yarra Glen Scouts had been making do in a rundown hut near the railway station when Dean decided he wanted to be a scout. Mr Miller got involved and when the scout leader, also the local bank manager, was transferred and the unit was looking at folding, he stepped up and was there for 16 years. A three-acre piece of land in Steels Creek Road that had been the town tip was looking good for a new scout hall, and some more lobbying of local councillors secured a 25 year lease and a labour force as part of a work-forthe-dole arrangement with Healesville Council. "We pulled down the old scout hall and scabbed, stole, borrowed and generally acquired all we needed to build the new scout hall," Mr Miller recalled. With a wealth of experience, he went from scout leader at Yarra Glen to training other scout leaders at Gillwell Park. Then it was his turn! Forced retirement in 2007 due to a stroke meant the family left their rural property and settled in the towhship. "I was getting bored with retirement when I heard about the concept of men's sheds - I thought it would be great for Yarra Glen. "The more older people I saw walking around Yarra Glen, bored like me got me going. "I spoke to then Cr Jeanette McRae, who was very supportive and got council involved." Some land was allocated and with a grant from the bushfire fund the Yarra Glen & District Men's Shed was up and running. "We have about 60-odd members now, and we've never looked back," Mr Miller said. Of his involvement in community groups over the years, he said he had taken an idea and taken it on as a challenge. "I like getting involved in the community and like working with people, but an idea doesn't always work unless you get people behind and I've always been fortunate to have good, reliable people working alongside me, including my wife Lorraine, who has been a great support." Of the award ... he is pleased with the honour and will celebrate with his family. "I don't know whether I deserve all this, but I guess some people do and that's great."

Engagement key to major project Deservedly, the Warburton Mountain Bike Destination project is attracting significant excitement and interest from the community, active families, mountain bikers and all levels of government. As has been seen in Tasmania and New Zealand, mountain bike projects like this bring many benefits to local people and their community. Particularly for the Upper Yarra, it provides a unique opportunity to regenerate communities which, over the years, have been impacted by the loss of many local jobs as larger employers relocated. Once complete, the project is expected to attract 135,000-day visitors and 30,000 overnight visitors annually. It will create 120 new jobs, and generate more than $20 million in economic benefit to the local community. The project will also provide significant recreational opportunities to support the health and wellbeing of the communities of Warburton and surrounding towns. The project aims to create a world class destination that celebrates and ensures the long-term protection of the spectacular natural and cultural assets we have at our doorstep. Community feedback is a vital part of the project, ensuring it delivers the best outcomes for the local area and for all Victorians. To capture initial community sentiment and feedback, the project team began engaging with the community in April 2016. The feedback received at this time was overwhelmingly supportive of the proposal. Since 2016, the project has progressed to a planning and assessment stage to identify environmental and heritage impacts and preferred trail alignments. The preferred alignments are currently being presented and worked through with landowners who may be directly impacted. During this landowner consultation, we’ve received feedback about the impact of a proposed trail alignment through the old cemetery near Old Warburton Road. This feedback has been taken on board and the alignment will be adjusted to avoid the cemetery. After the landowner consultation phase, the project will progress to a detailed consultation phase with variety of opportunities for people to view and comment on the preferred alignments. This consultation stage will provide additional information and access to the project team through a series of public drop in sessions and will aim to capture community ideas and feedback. We particularly want to hear from the lo-

cal community about any environmental and heritage stories that could be associated with the trails, the best location for trail heads and the flow of visitors through the Warburton township. We anticipate this consultation will commence in late June. The area’s natural and cultural environment will be a big drawcard for the trails, so its protection is a high priority for the project partners and will be a key focus for the design and construction of the trails. A range of experts from Parks Victoria, Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Zoos Victoria, Melbourne Water, Australian National University, BIOSIS and Practical Ecology are advising the project team to ensure values are protected and enhanced where possible. Yarra Ranges Council’s project website provides regular project updates, and addresses the questions members of the community are frequently asking. You can also sign up to receive notifications when information is updated. Dates and venues for the next stage of community consultation are also available on this site. Alternatively, anyone who has any questions or concerns is also welcome to contact Council on 1300 368 333 to speak directly with one of our project officers. Cr Tony Stevenson, Deputy Mayor, Yarra Ranges Council

Bike hub enthusiasm not universal Yarra Ranges Council believes its proposed mountain bike plan will bring an extra 135,000 visitors a year to Warburton. Cr Jim Child says it will be “absolutely amazing for our town”. Many locals, especially renters, do not share his enthusiasm. The rental market is already tight and some people live with the fear that if they are forced to leave their home, they will not find another in Warburton. Similar bike projects in other towns have been very successful at attracting tourists but have had the unintended side effect of rental stock being turned into more lucrative Air B&B accommodation. According to census data, around a quarter of Warburton’s population are renters. Some have been in the area for generations, and all have a reason to be worried. Yes economic growth is important, but if a quarter of our town ended up having to leave, could you still call this project a success? We need to remember that we are a community, not an economy, and maybe the large sums being spent pushing this project forward could be better spent on something that benefits all of us. Tanya Bowman, Warburton

Hospital help incredible A few weeks ago, I had a minor procedure at Healesville Hospital which included an anaesthetic and a few hours there. I’d like to thank the staff at the hospital for making the whole experience as stress free as possible - everyone was warm, friendly and caring at every stage, just as you would imagine a small country hospital to be.


I’d also like to thank the members of SHHAG (Save Healesville Hospital Action Group), which worked tirelessly and persistently a few years ago to stop the authorities from shutting our hospital down and then somehow managed to persuade them to upgrade it to the lovely welcoming hospital it is now. So pleased I didn’t have to go ‘down the line’! Karen Roberts, Healesville

Wishes of the majority ignored In reply to Kate Warne’s letter ‘My support offered’ (‘Mail’, 29 May), I wish to correct some statements, regarding the development of Haining Farm. The Haining Working Group contained ‘seven local residents’, chosen to represent the wishes and concerns of the residents of Don Valley, and the surrounding towns in the Upper Yarra Area. After investigating the possible options for Haining Farm for over seven months, only one of the Haining Farm Working Group Community members did not agree with the consensus of group discussions. Kate Warne claimed that; “The bushfire risk has been distorted by ‘a small number of relative newcomers to Don Valley’”. We were not ‘the minority’. I may be regarded as a ‘relative newcomer’ to Don Valley, having only been here with my family for 38 years, but we were also representing other long-term residents and friends in the Valley, some of whom who have lived here for up to 80 years. The other concern of the Working Group was that the planting of over 300,000 native trees on the farm would increase the bushfire risk to the community. Is that an unreasonable belief? The position of the group on the bushfire risk was supported by some of the most senior CFA captains in the region, whose opinions were sought during the process. The working group chose to recognise all the government and press records relating to the gift of the farm, rather that the memories of Sir John Reid’s grandchildren. I know that we do still have a clear majority of people in the Yarra Valley who favour the proposal that our Working Group Committee agreed on. Sid Horner, Don Valley Resident

Waste woe presents opportunity In response to the article, ‘Recycling, where to?’ (‘Mail’, 29 May). Well, let me tell you ... Everybody knows that China is no longer taking our rubbish. And to tell the truth, I can’t blame them. It is long overdue that Western societies take care of their own refuse. Alas, we are a wasteful society, which is evident in the amount of waste we produce; that having been said, we are trying to do the right thing. You can throw as many statistics at us, stating that so many recyclables are contaminated with things that should not go into the recycle bin. That may be true, but you have to admit that industry has a certain amount of respon-

build Victoria wide

sibility in the area, too. Many items are not clearly labelled as recyclable. And those that aren’t, should be. I consider it is not only up to us as residents to do the right thing, but it is also up to the manufacturers to go green as well. Should there not be programs to encourage transformation to a recycled society? And maybe even the penalising of those manufacturers that do not? Should not supermarkets stop wrapping fruit and other products in non-recyclable wrappings? Reduce and even stop stocking products that do not come in recyclable packaging? If supermarkets threw their weight behind such a thing, do you not think that manufacturers would pull up their socks quick smart and join the recyclable future? My kids do their best to follow a recycled routine, but I can sure tell you there’s some packaging that they scratch their head and toss it in the recycled even though they shouldn’t, just because it ‘looks’ recyclable. And they are right, it should be a no-brainer when making decisions at the bin, it should ‘all’ be recyclable. It’s all well and good to point the finger at those who are trying, but how about you start pointing the finger at those who aren’t. What needs to change: Better packaging and labelling; For state and possibly federal government to step up and encourage manufacturers to package products in recyclable material; Retailers to discourage non-recyclable packaging with preference to recycled packaging. Everything should be recyclable; anything else is just an excuse. Rob Hall, Woori Yallock

Not worth the cash I had to read it twice to believe the article ‘Firestick pledge worth $28.8 million’ (‘Mail, 15 May). (Eildon MP) Cindy McLiesh, our local Liberal member of State Parliament, supporting the expenditure of $28 million of taxpayers’ money on what she calls “the Return of the Firestick”. I suggest Cindy McLeish, or anyone else who wants to learn about the practice of burning off the land by Aboriginal people, only needs to travel to the areas of northern Australia. Here, they still burn off only using matches, not ‘firesticks’ as they did 100 years ago. History books show the main reasons that Aboriginal people burnt areas in the early days was so that they could move through the bush quickly while after wildlife. The burn encouraged the growth of younger grasses, which then attracted wildlife into the same areas and would be of a resource food for Aboriginal tribes. This knowledge is readily available, Cindy, at any library or through travelling up north. Without spending $28 million of taxpayers’ money - and for what legitimate reason, Cindy? When we already have a government department, DELWP, doing exactly what you are suggesting. Ray Donkin, Healesville

Strategy on deer By Kath Gannaway The Victorian Deer Management Strategy, set to be released for consultation later this year can't come too soon for residents of the Upper Yarra who are being plagued by deer in their gardens, and on the roads. Warburton resident, Brian Way, contacted the Mail last week saying the area was being 'overrun by deer'. A large deer, presumably hit by a car, on the side of the road at Millgrove prompted the alert. "Over the past three months there are deer everywhere and this week we've seen multiple deer on the road as we're coming home at night, and that's a danger in itself," Mr Way said. A spokesperson for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, told the Mail in answer to Mr Way's query as to whose responsibility it is to remove carcasses, that it is the job of the road manager - VicRoads on the Warburton Highway, and likely Yarra Ranges Council on smaller roads. In response to the bigger picture, she said deer management is a shared responsibility between communities, government, industries, businesses and stakeholder organisations. Deer can be legally controlled on private land, but under strict provisions around firearms and other approvals and permits, depending on a range of circumstances. "An important action under the Andrews Labor Government's Sustainable Hunting Action Plan 2016-2020 and the Biodiversity Plan

Spread the warmth By Derek Schlennstedt

Upper Yarra residents are concerned at the level of deer in the region. 2037 Implementation Framework is the development of a Victorian Deer Management Strategy, which will provide a co-ordinated and strategic approach to deer management," she said. The current strategy is under development and will be released for public consultation mid-late this year and will outline how the economic, environmental and social impacts of deer will be managed while providing for quality hunting opportunities."

As winter's chill begins to bite in the Yarra Valley, spare a thought for those who are doing it tough. Cold days and freezing nights make life difficult for those who can't afford to turn on their heaters - or who don't have a heater or as much as a roof over their heads. With vulnerable people in mind, Yarra Valley Innate Chiropractic and the Warburton Redwood Community Centre have teamed up once again to bring a little warmth to those who need it most. The coat and blanket drive aims to gather up as many coats and blankets as possible, to be donated to charity groups across the Valley, including Warburton's Redwood Community Centre. Dr David Mock, from the Vermont clinic told the Mail that the partnership they had with the Redwood centre in Warburton had been going on five years now and each year they received more and more coats for those who needed them most. "It's about bringing the community together to donate jackets and things of use for

winter for those who don't have that luxury," Dr Mock said. "Anything warm, coats, blanket socks, even firewood ... the redwood centre are desperate for firewood and delivery for firewood, so if you could donate some time and a trailer that would be very much appreciated." Each year the clinic receives hundreds of coats and blankets and Dr Alex Rodwell, also from the clinic urged people with any spare old coats or blankets to donate. "Coming up to the shortest day in the year I guess if you're feeling cold, then there's probably other people out there who are feeling colder than you; so if it's possible to do a bit of a spring clean early, and drop some warm things in that would be greatly appreciated. Any coats, blankets, socks that were clean, in wearable condition, and had a bit of warmth in them were candidates. The drop-off points are at Yarra Valley Chiropractic clinics - 660 Mitcham Road, Vermont, 4 Hoddle Street, Yarra Junction, 2 Bell Street, Yarra Glen and at the Warburton Redwood Community Centre. Anyone with spare firewood, who would like to donate it is urged to contact the Redwood Centre on (03) 5966 2320

Yarra Ranges mayor/Walling Ward I am very excited about the work Yarra Ranges Council has been doing to support the use of renewable energy in our community. Using renewable energy not only reduces our greenhouse gas emissions but in many cases reduces the amount we pay for our electricity.

Yarra Ranges Council is participating in the next round of the Solar Savers program, where pensioners (seniors or people with a disability) who own their own home can apply to purchase a Council-endorsed quality solar system. The systems will be installed by local contractors and can be purchased with a low interest bank loan to be paid back gradually over 10 years with zero upfront costs. Households who sign up have access to the bank loan (subject to normal bank lending criteria), with power bill savings covering the cost of repayments. Solar Savers will check to make sure every household taking part will be at least $100 in front. The Solar Savers program is designed to make it easier for pensioners to get a solar sys-

tem installed and to ensure they will be better off. The program will help pensioners save money, stay comfortable in extreme weather and lower their emissions. Solar Savers is a partnership between more than 20 Victorian Councils and four regional Greenhouse Alliances. Solar Savers is a partnership between more than 20 Victorian Councils and four regional Greenhouse Alliances. It takes the hard work out of solar, drawing on the expertise of councils and program partners to choose quality, reliable solar systems and a trusted installer. At Yarra Ranges Council, we are proud to be leading the way in the community with renewable energy and helping local households to

Healesville CoRe (Community Renewable Energy) launched a year ago with a community event that filled the Healesville Memo and saw the start of what has been an action-filled first year for the community-driven committee. On Thursday, 21 June, once again at The Memo in Healesville, Healesville CoRe will celebrate the achievements of the past year with "Our solar town: from dreams to reality". Healesville CoRE president Jeff Barlow says that the group has achieved a lot in just one year. Mr Barlow said that among a number of highlights has been putting in place the structures needed to ensure the organisation can move along at a good pace and with a clear direction for the future.

"Getting the Monash team on board to do the options study and potential feasibility study is an important part of that aim," he said. "Working with council to get the bulk buy up and running and running a series of community events on solar electricity, batteries and hot water and on solar for landlords and tenants, as well as running some training days for our volunteers so they can be skilled with the information and knowledge they need for the work they are doing, are also among our first year's achievements." The group has grown to nearly 70 members with more than 400 people on the CoRE data base. The event on 21 June will be an opportunity not only to celebrate the achievements so far, but to hear CoRE's project partners talk about projects that are being put into place and that

get on board with this pioneering program. Sign-ups are open until Friday 13 July. Contact Solar Savers if you: Own your home; Have a Government Pension Card (aged or disability); Are usually at home from 9am to 5pm; Have average to high electricity use (contact Solar Savers if you're unsure); Do not currently have solar panels at your home. I encourage homeowners with a pension card and a sunny roof to contact Solar Savers to check their eligibility and express interest in the program on (03) 9385 8512 or email info@

Land handed over by Derek Schlennstedt A 20ha piece of prime bushland in Macclesfield - dedicated to the life's work and memory of Healesville wildlife champion, the late Jeanne Wilcox - has been handed over to the State Government. The land is set to be included in the Yellingbo Nature Reserve. The transaction was negotiated by Trust for Nature with funds from the Judith Eardley Save Wildlife Association and the Myer Foundation. Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve is home to Victoria's bird emblem, the Helmeted Honeyeater, and the lowland Lead beater's Possum. Now the 20ha will help to provide extra habitat for these endangered animals. Members of Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater (FoHHE), Parks Victoria and DELWP, JESWA volunteers, Trust for Nature staff joined Member for Monbulk James Merlino on Friday 1 June to formally hand-over the Jeanne Wilcox Reserve. Deputy Premier of Victoria, James Merlino, handed over the land to FoHHE and spoke highly of the collective involvement it took to purchase the land. "We are so fortunate to have the friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater, a group of passionate volunteers protecting not only the Helmeted Honeyeater, but the Lead beater's possum and to be supported by Parks Victoria, DELWP, Yarra Ranges Council," Mr Merlino said. "To have the Myer foundation and Judith Earley foundation provide the funding and then Trust for Nature to do the negotiations on behalf and then gifting that land to the state, and then from there back to Parks Victoria, FoHHEr and DELWP to protect it. "It's just this great circle of support and reminder that none of us can do this work alone." Described by FoHHE president Alan Clayton as a wonderful, unique piece of land, Mr

Clayton thanked the family of the late Willy Veit who had owned and cared for the land known as 'Bilagal' for the past 20 years. That land is perfect of the Lead beaterss possum and endangered Helmeted Honeyeater with no revegetation needed due to the availability of dense forest which is preferred by both species. Victoria Marles, CEO of Trust for Nature, said it was a "delight to pass the land on to the public".

Let’s talk mental health In the lead-up to Men's Health Week (June 1117), men in the Yarra Ranges are being encouraged to have a conversation with others about their mental health. Eastern Health's Aladdin Jones said it was important that men kept their own health and wellbeing in check, as well as reaching out to other men close to them. The theme for this year's week is 'Men and Families: Making Connections'. "Just as there is no shame if you have a physical injury, there is certainly nothing wrong with seeking support if you are going through a rough patch mentally or emotionally," he said. Mr Jones said there were numerous services and resources men can use. "Community health centres, such as Healesville Hospital and Yarra Valley Health, often have free or low-cost counselling," he said. "There are also groups such as Healthy Mates Upper Yarra ... or Men's Sheds, which are a good way to connect with other men in person, and in a social context. "There is also some useful information online, including the government's Better Health Channel page." Men looking for support can contact MensLine on 1300 789 978 or Beyond Blue on 1300 224 636.

The right skills for the job

The ‘SwinLocal’ partnership provides invaluable support and pathways for students who may not be ready to study at TAFE level. Try a Trade is exactly that; four days of sampling four different, high priority, Victorian skills shortage trades. "The current Try a Trade focuses on the four trades of bricklaying, plumbing, electrotechnology and carpentry," Ms Allen said "The major benefit of a short course is that students are not required to sign up to TAFE to try the four trades. The students are enrolled

in a pre-accredited short course through the Learn Local organisation, which does not jeopardise the individual's eligibility for funding in future government funded vocational courses." Students have access to the Swinburne Croydon campus building barns and qualified TAFE trainers, who take the students through hands-on, real life, practical activi-

ties in the four trades. This program offers school leavers and mature adults thinking about a career change a brilliant opportunity to try a trade before signing up for a full qualification. The next Try a Trade will run at Swinburne Croydon in September, 2018. For more information, phone Cire on 1300 835 235 or visit 12390169-CG25-18

The State Government recently announced a 'free TAFE course' priority list to launch from January 2019. Cire Services' Executive of Education and Training Anna-Louise Allen explained that as a result, the importance of knowing what trade and which course to enter into is now more vital than ever. The announcement covered a wide range of qualifications, all focused on vocational training with direct paths into employment and apprenticeships. "With the priority listed courses directly linked to skills shortages reported in the Victorian skills shortage list (released in March 2018), the data pinpoints many areas around the state and metropolitan regions where there is a demand for skilled workers," Ms Allen said. "Included in this list are a number of construction roles from bricklaying, carpentry, electrotechnology and plumbing, to name a few." Over the past few years, Swinburne University of Technology has been working in partnership with Learn Locals, located in the outer east of Melbourne. "This 'SwinLocal' partnership, as it's referred to, provides invaluable support and pathways for students who may not be ready to study at TAFE level," Ms Allen said "The partnership with Learn Locals means that training can occur at the Learn Local or at a TAFE. Students receive additional support to access an appropriate course. Learn Locals also provide 'taster' courses, which provide participants a great introduction in a future profession, course of study and TAFE life without having to sign up for a qualification." One of these taster courses is 'Try a Trade', coordinated by Learn Local and Cire Services.

Bloods celebrate 130th By Kath Gannaway

Healesville Football Netball Club had plenty to celebrate over the long weekend with a history that goes back, as president Greg Hay was happy to note, even further than the Collingwood Football Club. Former players, officials and supporters came from around Australia to be part of the club's Gala 130th Celebration Reunion that started with a veteran's match on Friday night. Coached by former player Bill Gordon, the match against Marysville saw players from interstate take to the Don Road oval along with the current vets to relive the adrenalin of match day. Saturday's reunion brought was all about catching up and reliving the glory days with players from the club's premiership teams replaying every crucial mark, goal and umpiring

decision as the current Bloods trounced Belgrave before their eyes. The celebration continue (along with the stories) at Sunday's Gala dinner at the Yarra Glen Racecourse where special guests included Bulldogs Legend Doug Hawkins, former Healesville champion, Carlton payer and Brownlow Medallist 1964 Gordon Collis and Fox sports presenter Greg Thomson. Healesville FNC president Greg Hay spoke of the changes to league football over the decades and of the challenges facing local clubs in a new era of league football. "Football has always| been about comradeship and mateship and that's what we continue to try to achieve," he said. "If there's a footy club here in 100 years' time being here today, and celebrating the club's history, will all have been worthwhile." See more photos at

Tipples, turtles, teepees By Derek Schlennstedt There were tipples, turtles and teepees at this year's annual Wine and Wildlife event, which again proved a winning combination. Thousands from around Victoria, and even many international visitors, came to Healesville Sanctuary to enjoy the Queen's Birthday long weekend event and bask in the sun while enjoying a wine or two. With six event spaces - including undercover pavilions and grassy picnic lawns that were set next to a line-up of local wineries, craft breweries and hearty winter food -

there was plenty to sample and purchase. Of course, those delicious samplings couldn't detract from the amazing array of wildlife that were out and about and on show whether that was being walked or flown around the Sanctuary grounds. Nearly 4000 people passed through the Sanctuary gates on Saturday and this was followed by a new record of 7466 people on the Sunday. More than 5000 people also came on the Monday. 'Mail' reporter Derek Schlennstedt was on-hand to capture all the 'wild' action.

Looking forward to an active later life? Start thinking about it now.

Jason Hood and Tanya Walker, who travelled all the way form Eynesbury, found a favourite with the Four Pillars Shiraz gin.

Australians are living longer. And that means thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more life to enjoy. Whatever youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking forward to, the government has programs to assist Australians to be better prepared. The government is providing over $22 million to sporting and other local organisations to help you stay healthy, active and connected.

Maliki the dingo took an interest in the many people around the sanctuary though kept to the water.

There are lots of ways to live the life you want.

Singing soothes the soul By Kath Gannaway Singing with the 'Singing For Your Soul's Sake' choir is the highlight of the week for Yarra Glen's Garden Fairy. "We can't wait to warble to you," she said as the group practiced last week for a free concert they will be giving on Wednesday, 20 June at 2pm at St Brigid's Hall in Healesville. Several of the choir member had sung for a number of years with the local Rocky Road choir which folded last year leaving a big gap in the lives of those members who love to get together and sing. Singing Form Your Soul's Sake founder and leader, Catherine Nolan was asked to create an alternative and so the singing continues. "It's an important part of the lives of some of the people who come along each week," Catherine said. Some of the singers are dealing with health issues and other life challenges. "This brings us all together for two hours of uplifting singing and takes us out of the realm of things we have to deal with in everyday life," Catherine said. Garden Fairy just loves to sing and says she is looking forward to the concert. "We need you to be our audience next month at a free concert we're happily practising for," she said in an invitation to the Yarra Valley community to join them for their first concert. There will be lots of popular songs and an open invitation to the audience to sing along. Afternoon tea will be served at interval and the concert is scheduled to finish around 3pm. Singing For Your Soul's Sake choir welcomes new members - men and women of any age. Phone 0417 002 793 for more information.

Constellations Starring Rhiannon Leach and Kieran Tracey Directed by Justin Stephens Constellations: Play Review



'A Moment in Warburton', a snapshot of local life, brings together Upper Yarra photographers and writers in an exhibition of photo journalism recording moments in the lives of local people and visitors in a defined time in Warburton. The exhibition which will launch at the Waterwheel Gallery in Warburton on Saturday, 16 June at noon, is edited by former Age photographer and Warburton resident Jim McEwan. It follows the lines of a project he ran in Bellingen NSW drawing on the local community as the resource of subject, writer and photographer. "It's a bit easier when you know the people,' Jim said. "I did the introductions and said here's three people, go and take pictures of them; ask them their story." The result is a collection of photos and

'extended' captions which provide stunning visual and written insights into the lives of 30 people, each originally planned as 30 pages of photos with captions. "I am now up to 62 pages for the magazine," said Jim who has fallen under the spell of the story-telling of the writers. The exhibition will feature 31 photographs and stories by participating photographers and writers Kate Baker, John Bodin, Suyin Chan, Lily Hellicar, Ella McEwan, James McEwan, Honey Pedersen, Lindy Schneider, Paul X Stoney and Andrew Woodley. A Moment in Warburton, sponsored by Warburton Advancement League and Warburton Bendigo Community Bank, will run from 14 June to 4 July from 10am to 4pm daily.

Constellations is a unique brain-twisting play written by British playwright Nick Payne, and ran at The Memo, Healesville, from June 2 to 3. On the surface, Constellations is a conventional two-hander romantic drama, structured as a series of vignettes in the lives of physicist Marianne (Rhiannon Leach) and beekeeper Roland (Kieran Tracey). Each scene runs for a handful of minutes (or even a few seconds), as the couple meet, fall in love, weather infidelity and deal with terminal illness. But suddenly, the world resets: the stage darkens, a cosmic transition plays on the set background and the scene plays out in a slightly different way. The play's themes and the stars' charisma keep this narrative rhythm fresh when it could

have ended up repetitious and stale. At various points, Marianne invokes the 'multiverse' theory, in which every choice in existence - made and unmade - produces a separate universe. As such, the transitions provide an exhilarating sense of crossing between universes, and it's fascinating to ponder how these different snippets connect with each other. The stars have extraordinary chemistry, shift intense emotions effortlessly and masterfully keep track of the nuances between scenes/universes. In effect, Constellations is a science fiction play by virtue of its simple yet innovative production and heady scientific themes, rather than the plot itself. Constellations is a poignant, wonderfullyacted drama and a sterling example of how production techniques can impart theme and build genre. - Seth Lukas Hynes Trades & Services

OAM has a good ring to it By Kath Gannaway

With Kelvin Bryant OAM is (left) Kristy Harris (Australian boxing champion) and (right) Shelly Watts (gold medalist at Commonwealth Games, Glasgow). so young, boxers who work very hard to reach their goals - whether at an elite level, or as a way of finding themselves. "I enjoy what I'm doing and seeing some of the young girls and boys achieve their aims," Mr Bryant said. "I box myself and I know it saved me from going down the wrong path.

Boxing has been a life-time passion for Lilydale's Kelvin Bryant, starting as a young boy in Balmain in Sydney to the world amateur boxing stage. Most critically, it has been, and is, a way of making a difference in the lives of young men and women who find a purpose in the sport. Mr Bryant was awarded the Medal ( OAM) of the Order of Australia for service to boxing in the Queen's Birthday Honours List. Having spent 45 years in the army at the rank of Sergeant, and specialising in physical training, he says the same disciplines come into play. Among many roles, he has taken numerous Boxing Australia youth teams to overseas competitions and was coach at the National Centre of Excellence with Boxing Australia. He is a board member of Boxing Victoria where he is a Level 1 presenter, served as State Amateur Boxing Coach and Coach at the Victoria Centre of Excellence and was a fitness instructor and boxing coach at the Harold Holt Aquatic Centre. Founding the Collingwood Boxing Club in 2001 is a highlight of a long involvement in the sport. The club provides an opportunity for people in need to engage in life through boxing - they include the homeless, members of the renowned Choir of Hard Knocks, and refugee youth. Mr Bryant says it gives a sense of belonging. "I've got a lot of the African boys coming in, a lot of kids from the high-rise who are beaut kids, and it gives them a really good sense of worth. "We're quite a close-knit club where there's a lot of respect and they feel like they belong." The army discipline and structure work, across the board in training young, and not

Surprises in the sunshine By Cameron Hutchison Round 7 was played in cold but sunny conditions; some of the Under 18s certainly had fog and cold conditions to contend with but the reserves and seniors saw the sunshine. There were some big winners and some surprise losers over the weekend. With only one game separating the top 7 in Division 1, it is certainly tight at the top and Yarra Glen have a one-game buffer on Seville, while there are four teams knocking on the door in the five in Division 2. The winners in senior football: Upwey-Tecoma, Healesville, Monbulk, Wandin, Woori Yallock, Alexandra, Yarra Glen, Yarra Junction and Yea. A Grade netball winners: Belgrave, Olinda Ferny Creek, Mount Evelyn, Upwey-Tecoma, Wandin, Alexandra, Kinglake and Yea. Division 1 Seniors Football Upwey-Tecoma 15.12.102 d Emerald 9.11.65 Upwey once again sits equal top on the ladder but third on percentage after a solid win over Emerald. Emerald got off to a good start, leading at quarter time by two points after both sides kicked four majors in the first. Upwey took control in the second, banging home five goals to two to arrest the lead at half-time by 21 points. They were on fire in the third, booting a further six goals to onw and had the game well in hand at three-quarter time. Emerald played some good footy in the last, kicking two goals and strangling Upwey only letting them kick three behinds, but the margin was too far away for them to rein it in. Upwey-Tecoma Best: K. Hinton, B. Oates, D. Waters (6 goals), D. Bell (2 goals), L. Beacom, B. Bantoft Emerald Best: B. Moloney (7 goals), C. Thomsen, B. Wood, J. Pedder, J. Rich (1 goal), T. Thomsen Healesville 20.14.134 d Belgrave 9.8.62 Healesville are sitting in fourth spot but are sixth on percentage after a good performance against Belgrave. Healesville opened with 5.3 to 3 goals, but Belgrave were still in the hunt. Healesville kicked away in the second, with 4.3 to 1.6 and had a lead of 30 points at half-time. Belgrave won the third quarter, kicking 3.1 to 2.4 but the game was looking like it was all over. A very impressive nine-goal last qurater by Healesville well and truly put the game out of reach of Belgrave. Healesville Best: J. Savage (2 goals), J. McGrath (5 goals), J. Roe-Duggan (2 goals), M. Hay, K. Brown (2 goals), L. Daly Belgrave Best: J. Brown, P. Gough (3 goals), L. Sproules, H. Byron, M. O'Callaghan, J. McDermott Monbulk 10.15.75 d Mt Evelyn 8.12.60 Monbulk have kept themselves in touch with the top five with a very good win over Mount Evelyn. They are now sitting seventh, only by percentage, while Mount Evelyn have hung onto fourth, but only by percentage. They are both on four wins with another two clubs. The first quarter was a tight contest with both sides kicking 2.3. Monbulk managed to open up a break at half-time by 7 points, but it was anyone's game. The third quarter was low scoring and tough footy but Monbulk hung onto their advantage extending it to only 10 points at the last break. The last quarter was a goal feast as there were 9 goals kicked in all, but Monbulk played just that bit better to come home with the win. Monbulk Best: C. Griffiths, D. McClelland, J. Rak, K. Fletcher (2 goals), B. Emmett, S. Van Seters Mt Evelyn Best: C. Urquhart, T. Scopel, J. Fellows, A. Gibbons, M. Brierley, B. Lord Wandin 19.23.137 d Warburton Millgrove 15.5.95 Wandin sit in second spot by percentage after a win over Warburton. The first quarter was tighter than some would have thought but Wandin held a slim lead by 7 points. Wandin turned it up a notch in the second, kicking 5.8 to 3.1 and they now had a break by 24 points. Both sides peppered the goals in the third, with a total of 11 goal in all but Wandin still won the quarter and had a handy break of 35 points at three-quarter time. Wandin had a bit of leather poisoning in the last with 12 scoring shots to 5 and ran away with the win in the end. Wandin Best: B. Foley, P. Bruzzese, P. Hodg24 MAIL

Emerald's Harrison Lang gets up high in the ruck. 181801 ett (1 goal), C. Johnston (2 goals), J. Byrne, T. Leech-Hines Warburton-Millgrove Best: A. White, M. Wappett (3 goals), T. McKenzie, B. Clinch, T. McKail (1 goal), L. Barnard Woori Yallock 11.13.79 d Olinda Ferny Creek 6.9.45 Wowee! Olinda has dropped their second game for the season and has now tightened up the top 3 being only separated by percentage. Woori Yallock got the early lead at quarter time by 5 points. They kicked 4 goals to 1 in the second and went into the main break with a 23-point lead. They showed Olinda a clean pair of heels in the second, kicking 4.2 to 1.2 and went into the main break with a 23-point buffer. Olinda came out and threw the ball at the goals but could not register enough majors, only kicking 2.6 to 4.1 and the game was starting to slip away from them. Woori Yallock held Olinda to 1.1 in the last while they put on 1.5 to come home with a surprise win. Woori Yallock Best: J. Matthews (3 goals), A. Marsh (2 goals), R. Allen, K. Thompson (1 goal), E. Clasby (1 goal), M. Batten Olinda Ferny Creek: M. Hottes, S. Atkinson, J. Charge (1 goal), D. Troutman, L. Hill, J. Rankin Division 2 Seniors Football Alexandra 21.13.139 d Gembrook Cockatoo 8.6.54 Alexandra are hanging onto a share of fourth, sitting in fourth with Gembrook know in sixth, but only by percentage. Alexandra were relentless all day and never really gave Gembrook a look in. They got out to a 27-point lead and were never under threat from there. They extended their lead to 35 points at half-time. Alexandra came out after the main break and kicked 4.6 to 2.1 to give themselves an advantage by 52 points going into the last. A very impressive 7 straight to 2.3 in the last and it wall all over for Gembrook. Alexandra Best: J. Steyger, B. Norris (7 goals), C. McKay (3 goals), C. Heaslip, M. Steiner (2 goals), S. Heveren Gembrook Cockatoo Best: D. Volta (1 goal), L. Henzen (1 goal), B. Wareham, L. Taylor, L. Scott, J. Van Der Zwart Yarra Glen 14.22.106 d Kinglake 11.7.73 Yarra Glen sit atop the ladder undefeated but were challenged by Kinglake early. Kinglake got


the early lead booting 6.4 to 3.6 in the 1st and it took Yarra Glen by surprise. Yarra Glen bounced back in the second, kicking 4.4 to 1.2 to take a small lead of four points into the main break. They took hold of that advantage in the third, kicking 5.4 to 2 straight to have a handy lead of 26 points going into the last. The final margin could have been a lot bigger if Yarra Glen had found the big sticks. They kicked 2.8 to 2.1 in the last to finally get home by 33 points. Yarra Glen Best: W. Kristelly, C. Moate, D. Barker, A. Smith (2 goals), D. Hurley (1 goal), L. Telford (2 goals) Kinglake Best: A. McLaren, J. Graf, M. Quinton, J. Crowe, J. Whitehead (1 goal), B. White Yarra Junction 34.20.224 d Thornton Eildon 0.1.1 Yarra Junction now sit third on the ladder outright after a barnstorming performance on the weekend. Yarra Junction had the ball on a string all day and Thornton could not get near it. The Eagles had 12 goalkickers in all, with Sam Morton bagging himself 8 of the best. Yarra Junction kicked 14 goals in the first half and then 20 in the second half; Thornton had no answers for the onslaught. Yarra Junction Best: S. Morton (8 goals), A. Chandler (2 goals), S. Cannon (4 goals), J. Bombinski (2 goals), C. Hoare (4 goals), L. Hoffman (1 goal) Thornton-Eildon Best: J. Scotland, D. Creed, B. Clarke, J. Dickson, R. Andrews Yea 11.12.78 d Powelltown 2.14.26 Yea bounced back from their loss last week and sit in fifth spot by percentage at the end of the day. Yea got the early lead and were never headed. They kicked 4.6 to 3 behinds in the first and the scene was set with a 27-point lead. Powelltown could only manage 1 behind in the second; even Yea could only add 2.3 but they were in front and that was the important thing. They tidied up in the third, kicking 4.2 and Powelltown got their first major for the game. Powelltown would be bitterly disappointed with their score-line for the day and will do some soul searching during the week. Yea Best: H. Jarvie (1 goal), R. Aldous (2 goals), J. Ryan, S. Connell, A.

Belli a life member By Jamie Strudley Yarra Ranges Athletics' Saturday morning cross-country was held at a sunbaked Margaret Lewsi Resreve in Coldstream. After a robust congratulations to Rob Belli for his LAVIC - EMR life membership, an exceptional turn out of eager athletes and supporters turned their attention to the challenge ahead. Rob Belli is a stalwart of Yarra Ranges Athletics. Rob has been involved with the club before and after his children finished competing at Yarra Ranges Athletics Little Athletics, performing numerous roles within the club, most notably as a starter during the summer months and as a starter, organiser and competitior during the winter cross country season. Rob is also actively involved in officiating where he is regarded as one of the premier starters in Victoria, often convening courses on behalf of LAVIC and EMR. This recognition from EMR of Life Membership is a well earned award for a well respected, admired and loved member of the athletics community. Rob duly started the first of five races, encouraging every athlete to push themselves, be it training for school cross country championships or just chasing personal bests and the elusive chocolate frog reward. Once again the performance from everyone was outstanding with some very close finishes and big smiles Results from round 9 are: 500m Hunter Lockland-Struhs 2.05 Robert McDowell 2.09 Jett Lockland-Struhs 2.17 Emily Kinwel 2.31 Sinead Willey 2.35 Bryce Fiedler 2.38 Ava Burgess 2.43 Lily Clarke 2.45 Mischa Gopal 2.52 Dihain Rathnayake 2.55 Leah Kinwell 3.19 Harlem Willis 3.19 Amelia Sketchley 3.20 ava sweeney 3.20 Georgia McKinnon 3.23 Zara Gopal 3.41

Wednesday 6 June: Stroke & M. McGrann 'Bag day': Many players curse playing stroke because it is so 'unforgiving'! In other formats, you can have a bad hole, or two, and still come in with a competitive score. Not so in stroke; every shot counts. So, when someone shoots a 67, you know there are 'no' poor holes in that. Paul Mason won the day with just that score, including a gob-smacking 32 front nine! 'Mase' now qualifies for the bag-day playoff at the end of the year. Great shooting, Paul. Captain Noel can consider himself unlucky as he claimed the r/up prize with a superb Nett 68 (by the way, Paul's Nett score was 67 also, as he plays off 'scratch'). Balls did get down to 74! NTPs went to Captain Cross (9th), Paul Mason (10th) and to President Hall (12th). Certainly, a good day for the Club's Executive! Saturday 9 June: Stroke & 2 Person Ambrose: Chris Fall and Andy Lockey won with a creditable 62.75; but only on a c/back from Shaun Nicholl and Roger Mataele. If you scored 63.75 or better, you can collect a ball. NTP winners on the day were D. Shute (3rd), Noel Cross (5th), Peter Fox (9th) and a good day's work for Craig Staggard who collected for the 12th 'and' the 15th!

Breaking SUV records Toyota is riding the crest of Australia's wave of SUV popularity, selling an industry record of more than 7500 SUVs last month. The May SUV total represented 38.5 per cent of the 19,500 Toyota new-vehicle sales for the month. Toyota's SUV tally beat the previous industry record of 7,050 SUVs established by the market leader as recently as March this year. So far in 2018, Toyota's SUV deliveries have topped 33,400 vehicles - an increase of 6,000 SUVs or 22 per cent compared with the same stage last year. The rapid recent acceleration in SUV sales is demonstrated by the fact that May was the 10th consecutive month that Toyota has set a monthly record for SUV sales. Last year, SUVs overtook passenger cars to become Australia's largest automotive segment. Toyota led the SUV market with 71,660 sales. The strength of SUV sales is a major factor in Toyota this year delivering its highest January-May sales in a decade - more than 88,600 vehicles. Toyota's total represents a gain of 5.0 per cent over the same period last year, resulting in overall sales that are more than 40,000 ahead of any other brand. Stand-out performers include: HiLux - Australia's best-selling vehicle this year with records for both 4x4 and total sales; it was also the best-seller in May. Corolla - the nation's top-selling passenger car in May and so far this year; RAV4 - the strongest sales in its 24-year history in Australia with monthly records in seven of the past eight months; Prado - best May and best January-May sales since 2012.

The Toyota SUV range continues to be a popular option for Australian roads. 181810 marketing Sean Hanley said June was traditionally the strongest sales month of the year and he expected the brand's positive sales mo-

mentum to continue. "We have the product range and marketing campaigns locked in to ensure Toyota and our

dealers can deliver well over 20,000 vehicles in June while carrying over a healthy order bank into the third quarter," Mr Hanley said.

Cyclists to benefit Cyclists injured in accidents with stationary vehicles will be able to access Transport Accident Commission (TAC) benefits under new legislation introduced by the Labor Government. Under current legislation, cyclists are only entitled to receive TAC support if they hit a moving vehicle, a car door or a stationary vehicle on the way to or from work. The Bill will ensure people like Richard (Rory) Wilson get support they need. Rory hit a parked truck when riding with friends in 2014 and suffered significant injuries - injuries he still lives with today. If Rory was riding to work, he would have been eligible for cover under TAC, but he was not. The Bill introduced by the Labor Government today will close this loophole, extending TAC benefits to any cyclist injured by accidents with stationary vehicles. The amendment will be retrospective and cover Rory and any cyclist who has experienced a similar accident since 9 July 2014. The Bill also extends the travel and accommodation allowance for family members to attend hospital when someone is injured, and pay income support to parents who need to be by the bedside of their injured children. Other proposed changes include extending family-related benefits to grandparents, extending benefits for dependent children to those completing an apprenticeship and in-

creasing the cap on travel and accommodation from $10,000 to $20,000 for immediate family to attend hospital for distances greater than 100km. The Treasury and Finance Bill Legislation Amendment 2018 will also provide for an additional four weeks attendant care for clients who need to travel overseas for work. The extension of TAC coverage is part of the Labor Government's ongoing improvements to benefit Victorians injured in transport accidents, including restoration of access to mental injury claims and removal of the requirement to pay a medical excess of $651 before the TAC pays for non-hospital treatment. The Bill will also lead to changes to improve the operation of WorkSafe and its compensation arrangements. Minister for Finance Robin Scott said; "These changes close the gap in TAC eligibility for cyclists, ensuring they receive the support they deserve if they are injured on our roads". "We have listened to the community and are making changes that are fair for all Victorians," he said. TAC Chief Executive Officer Joe Calafiore said the TAC is here to support people injured on Victorian roads to get their lives back on track after their accidents. "We encourage any cyclist who has had a collision with a stationary vehicle, to call the TAC to see if they are eligible to make a claim," he said.

The new Bill will offer greater support for cyclists. 181811
