Thousands of people are expected to flock to Lake Caroline this weekend for an egg-cellent day of family fun. The annual Caroline Springs Easter Family Fun Day on Saturday will offer an afternoon of fun for everyone. Organised by INChurch Melbourne, the event is in its fifth year. INChurch Melbourne pastor Craig Maher said he and wife Melissa started the event after moving to Caroline Springs. “One of the things we noticed straight away was there weren’t any community events offering low-cost, family-friendly entertainment,” he said. About 5000 people attended last year’s event. Saturday’s fun will feature inflatable games for the kids, a petting zoo, face-painting and live music. There will also be a free show bag with an Easter egg for each child. Entry is free. Wrist bands for unlimited inflatable games can be purchased for children aged three to 15. The event will run at the Lake Caroline Foreshore Park from 11am-3pm. Details: bit.ly/2GepCFB JosHua, 6

Brimbank council says its position on electronic gaming machines remains clear, despite reports the council could seek gaming industry funding to help build the $58 million St Albans Leisure Centre. Brimbank suffers the biggest gaming losses in Victoria, with almost $140 million lost in 2017-2018. The council has repeatedly highlighted the suffering caused by gaming machines and in October last year called for the community to sign the petition Pokies play Brimbank. However after struggling to find funding for the much-talked about leisure centre, the council is now considering looking to the gambling industry. A report in The Age said a possible partnership with pokies operators was raised at a private gathering of councillors last month. The report stated that some present at the meeting say they are concerned such a partnership could give the pokies industry leverage over council policy. But they would not comment publicly, citing the council’s strict media code. In a statement last week, Brimbank mayor Lucinda Congreve said the council’s position on electronic gaming machines was unchanged. “As the municipality that consistently experiences the highest EGM losses in Victoria, Brimbank council has been vocal and steadfast in our calls for gambling industry reform,” she said. “Brimbank continues to advocate for reform of the industry and the introduction of harm minimisation measures.” Cr Congreve said the council operated within financial constraints and was looking at a variety of options for funding. “Councillors recently discussed (during an informal meeting between councillors) potential opportunities to explore private sector investment in the much-needed St Albans Health and Wellbeing Hub. “This was a robust and broad discussion, exploring a number of options – including whether it would be appropriate for council to seek funds from agencies or companies that we do business with or even to try and claw back directly some of the gambling losses experienced by our community.” Cr Congreve said a number of organisations were floated as potential investors, including Community Clubs Victoria, a pokies lobby group.

Copper theft bill tops $1million By Tate Papworth Copper wire thefts have cost the Brimbank community more than $1 million in the past 18 months. Council’s infrastructure and city services director Neil Whiteside said about 25 separate thefts had resulted in insurance claims “in the order of $1 million”. He said a spate off copper thefts from sporting and recreation reserves in Brimbank and across the west had hurt the community. “Not only do these thefts have a financial impact on council, but they also have a heavy
These thefts … have a heavy impact on the sports clubs - Neil Whiteside
impact on the sports clubs that use these community facilities.” His comments come as four men were last week charged following a police investigation into the thefts. A 27-year-old Taylors Lakes man, a 33-year-old Taylors Lakes man, a 35-year-old Keilor Downs man and a 28-year-old Hillside
man were remanded to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on July 16. All four have been charged with one count of theft after being found in possession of copper. Three of the four also face a second charge of theft for a separate incident. Police said they are reviewing all recent copper thefts looking at the similarities in offending. They said the thefts not only had a significant impact on sports clubs and schools, but also posed a safety risk because of the threat from live wiring left behind. The Grand United Cricket club was without
Auction action a boost for Artspace The Sunshine Print Artspace is a year old – and to celebrate it is holding an auction of quality artworks. More than 50 works have been donated by well-known Victorian artists and will be auctioned at the Artspace on Saturday, May 4 from 7pm. Sunshine Print Artspace president Phillip Doggett-Williams said the auction was aimed at ensuring the centre’s future. “We have now been operating for over a year and we are pleased to be part of the artistic environment in Melbourne’s west,” he said. “We are becoming known across Melbourne. “Funds raised will enable us to develop our creative workshop programs, further equip and finance the studio spaces and consolidate our vision values and culture within the community.” The Artspace will hold a preview exhibition leading up to the auction. It will run from April 28. Mr Doggett-Williams said the auction works came from across the art spectrum and included painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. He hopes to raise $50,000 and is thankful of the artists who are supporting the cause. Music, food and drink offerings and a celebration of the arts space will unfold along with the auction. The Artspace is a place for emerging and professional artists, offering studio space, artistic support, workshops and training in areas such as silkscreen for textiles and paper, lithography, intaglio and relief printing. The not-for-profit entity, at 29 Western Avenue, Sunshine, is run by a group of dedicated volunteers. Details: sunshineprintartspace.com
power to its clubrooms in February after thieves stole cabling from Selwyn Park, Albion. The club had no hot water or power in the weeks after the theft and was forced to use a generator to run lights and fridges for its major fundraiser. Last month, thieves stole copper cabling valued at more than $200,000 from sports facilities across Wyndham in 10 separate incidents. Police said investigations remain ongoing. Anyone who may be able to provide information about the thefts or sale of stolen copper is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
No arrests over violent rampage in Sunshine Police are yet to lay any charges in relation to a violent crime spree which took place in Sunshine last month. Three people were taken to hospital in serious condition after a group of up to 15 youths went on a rampage in Kennedy Street late on Saturday, March 2. About 11.25pm a group of 10 to 15 males set upon a 35-year-old Braybrook man who was walking along Hertford Street, Sunshine. His pockets were searched and demands were made for his wallet, but the group was scared off by local residents. The victim was taken to hospital with minor injuries. The group then made their way along Kennedy Street where police believe they carried out a series of vicious assaults. A 16-year-old was assaulted and taken to hospital with serious injuries and his 15-year-old friend, who came to his aid, was robbed and also assaulted. A 13-year-old Melton girl and a 13-year-old Melton boy were also confronted by the group on Kennedy Street, with the boy suffering minor injuries. The group also used a stick to assault a 14-year-old Corio girl who was searched for valuables and had her phone stolen. The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone who witnessed the incidents or has information is being urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a confidential on-line report at crimestoppers.com.au

• packaged incentives giving residents access to discounted products and education programs including workshops and online tutorials Council’s new Home Composting Program makes it easier and inexpensive to compost and manage food and garden waste at home, and minimise food waste sent to landfill.
Organic material that ends up in landfill breaks down in a way that can create harmful greenhouse gases, including methane, which contributes to climate change.
So much of what we throw out is food waste – making up nearly half of the average household rubbish bin.
Rather than going to landfill, household food and garden waste is a useful product for our gardens. It improves soil quality, water retention levels and nutrients that support plant growth.
All food scraps including kitchen leftovers, paper towels, dairy, fruit and vegetable scraps can go into a home composting bin.
To have your say visit brimbank.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay
It is estimated that every household that composts at home will divert an average of 3kg of food waste per week from landfill, or approximately 156kg per household per year.

Footage sought in death probe By Laura Michell Police are hoping dashcam footage or CCTV cameras can help with their investigation into the death of a Sydenham woman earlier this month. Vicki Ramadan, 77, was found dead in her Sydenham home on April 6. The last known sighting of her was about 9.45am on Monday, April 1, on Gourlay Road, Hillside. Homicide Detective Inspector Andrew Stamper revealed last week that Ms Ramadan was seen walking towards the Melton Highway.
There are many questions still to be answered - Andrew Stamper
“We’re appealing for anyone with information to come forward or anyone who was passing this area … to check their dashcam footage,” Detective Inspector Stamper said. “It would be too far for Vicki to walk from Gourlay Road to her home so we have to ask how did she get home? “What we are also interested in, is if anyone
can provide details of any suspicious activity in and or around Vicki’s Marlborough Way home and if anyone has seen Vicki since this last sighting until when her body was found nearly a week later.” Police said Ms Ramadan was often seen walking and was known to use public transport, in particular buses and taxis. They said Ms Ramadan frequented Watergardens Town Centre, where she was well-known by traders. “There are many questions still to be answered with this investigation, including a possible motive, so it’s crucial we hear from
the public. We’d like to provide the family with answers and find the person who has brutally taken Vicki’s life,” Detective Inspector Stamper said. Police are also investigating if her house was broken into or if she let someone she knew into her home. Detective Inspector Stamper said though Ms Ramadan was distant from her family, they were “very co-operative” with the investigation. “Obviously, they’re devastated and want some answers,” he said. Anyone with information can phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online.
Vandals strike statues Vandals have destroyed popular artworks at Antwerp Drive Reserve in Keilor Downs. The wooden totem poles featuring native animals were destroyed earlier this month. On its Facebook page, Brimbank council said the vandalism was appalling. “We’re disgusted and disappointed at the destruction of much-loved artworks at Antwerp Drive Reserve in Keilor Downs over the weekend,” the council said. “These beautiful sculptures were installed as part of a park upgrade just last year – so we share our community’s disappointment and dismay. “As well as damaging three sculptures, vandals left broken glass strewn across a picnic table. “Police have been informed and council will contact the artist to see if repairs can be made.” The nature-themed park at Antwerp Drive
Reserve was opened to the public in June last year. The $120,000 upgrade also included a new playground featuring climbing posts, a mound with a slide and climbing unit and new plant life. It’s not the first time vandals have hit a Brimbank park in recent months. The much-anticipated Sunvale Park in sunshine was attacked by vandals three times within a month of opening last year. In more recent times, two greens at the Keilor Public Golf Course were ripped up after vehicles were deliberately driven across the course.

Top marks for Brimbank schools By Tate Papworth Brimbank schools are celebrating their achievements following the release of Naplan results. The Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) updated its My School website earlier this month to include results from last year. A number of Brimbank schools achieved gains across categories including reading, writing and numeracy. Among the most improved schools are Kings Park Primary,
The recognition from ACARA is wonderful
- Suzanne Farley
St Albans Secondary, Derrimut Primary and Marian College. Caroline Chisholm Catholic College was also a major winner, named as one of My School’s high achievers after it demonstrated substantially above average gains in reading. The college’s growth in reading between years
7 and 9 was 1.06 – double the statewide average for schools of a similar size (0.53). Caroline Chisholm deputy principal of learning and teaching Suzanne Farley said it was just reward for hard work. “The recognition from ACARA is wonderful and a great reflection of the hard work by so many, in particular our students, who continue to embrace our reading program,” she said. “The outstanding outcomes and recognition from ACARA is a testament to the commitment the college has put into these programs and partnerships.”
Ms Farley said the reading program was led by the college’s teacher librarians and was aimed at monitoring and challenging students to read a variety of texts appropriate to their reading level. “Year 7 students visit the library once a week and year 8 and 9 students once a fortnight as part of the English curriculum,” she said. “A key part of our reading program is the reading conferences, where students discuss what they are reading.” To see how your school rated, visit: myschool. edu.au
Boom gates are back A final twist has been added to the Melton Highway level crossing removal. Kyneton sculptor Jason Waterhouse has recreated the original boom gates in a sculpture installed under the new rail bridge. The art piece, entitled Levelled Crossing Crossing, reuses the boom gates removed from the former Melton Highway level crossing, and ties them together in a knot. Waterhouse said he wanted the boom gates to remain true to their function. “My practice deals with re-imagining real objects,” he said. “And I thought, isn’t it hilarious that all this work goes into removing these boom gates. “I was interested in the ironic idea of putting back the boom gates to the site after all the effort … which is what I’ve done. “I just thought of the function of the boom gate – the opening and letting people through.” Waterhouse’s concept was chosen by Melton
Highway Level Crossing Removal Project members, Brimbank council, Creative Victoria and the Office of the Victorian Government Architect. The sculptor installed the artwork in December last year under the eastern side of the six-lane bridge. “The work provides viewers and commuters with a fun, engaging and slightly surreal experience as they pass through the space and encounter the sculpture,” Waterhouse said. “Levelled Levelled Crossing is a playful take on the rail and road intersection history of the site and its recent urban development.” Jessica Micallef

Get your game on Sunshine Plaza and Maidstone United Soccer Club are hoping to unearth the next generation of Socceroos and Matildas. The Plaza is set to host an Aldi Mini Roos clinic this Saturday from 11am-2pm. A large target practice area will be set up and children of all abilities (aged 4-11) will be taken through the basics of the game. Sunshine Plaza centre manager Ian Simpson said it was a great way to round out the school holidays. “We’re thrilled to welcome Aldi Mini Roos and Maidstone United to Sunshine Plaza,” he said. “We love the program’s focus on inclusion and the new skills it teaches children as it really ties into our focus on creating a strong
community environment – with a fresh food precinct in the centre, the message of keeping active also really resonated. “Plus, parents may have run out of ideas as the school holidays come to an end, so this is the perfect solution.” The event provides an opportunity to support local club Maidstone United. Representatives from the club will be on hand during the event to help impart wisdom and the program will also double as an opportunity to sign up for the season.

Council puts a lid on food waste By Tate Papworth
So much of the waste we throw out is food waste - Lucinda Congreve
Brimbank residents have even more incentive to embrace their greener side. The council has introduced a new home composting program, which offers rebates on composting equipment, in the hope it will make recycling food scraps at home a viable option and stop them being sent directly to landfill. The council is offering a $50 rebate on the purchase of compost bins, however this will be capped at 300 households per financial year.
Residents will also have access to educational programs and support materials to help get started on their home composting system. Mayor Lucinda Congreve said it was a step in the right direction. “So much of the waste we throw out is food
waste – making up almost half of our average household rubbish bin,” she said. “We want to encourage the community to get onboard and discover how easy it is to create their own soil and fertiliser at home, all while doing their bit for the environment.” She said the program would go a long way to reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill. “All food scraps including kitchen leftovers, paper towels, meat, dairy, fruit and vegetable scraps can go into a home composting bin and help reduce our household waste. “Each year Victorian households throw
out 250,000 tonnes worth of food scraps. By introducing a home composting program, it’s estimated that every household that composts at home will divert an average of three kilograms of food waste per week, or approximately 156 kilograms per household per year. “Rather than going to landfill, we’re able to turn this food and garden waste into useful compost for improving our garden soil and growing healthy gardens.” For more details on how to apply for your $50 rebate visit brimbank.vic.gov.au/ homecomposting or call 9249 4000.
Leap of faith pays off “It’s a design that can be understood in many cultures without requiring too much thought,” he said. It’s not the first time Ramos’ work has been recognised. He won the $5000 Fiona Myer National Grant after his teachers at VU Polytechnic encouraged him to enter a panoramic series of five acrylic paintings of Japan’s Mount Fuji last year. He plans to use the money to undertake art workshops and visit galleries in Sydney later this year. Ramos said he’s happy he followed his passion and now aims to become a teacher so he can encourage others. Tate Papworth
Two years ago, Victoria University Polytechnic graduate Ronald Ramos swapped his career as an IT specialist to become a visual artist. At 36, the late-blooming St Albans artist said it wasn’t easy to throw in a highly-paid role for a chance to uncover a buried creative passion. However, his decision has paid off – Ramos has earned a series of awards, accolades and prizes along the way. Recently he won the inaugural VU – Western Bulldogs ‘design a harmony-themed footy jumper’ competition. He presented the jumper to Bulldogs’ players at the Unity Cup, a full day of round-robin matches featuring amateur players supported by AFL teams earlier this month. The winning work is a powerful design of red and white hands gripping wrists on a Bulldogs-blue background, symbolising strength and unity. Ramos said simplicity was the key.

When residents bought into the newly developed Cairnlea area just over a decade ago, they thought they were buying properties with picturesque water views. But these days the man-made lakes are hardly flowing – dry weather has meant the lakes are rapidly drying up. Joe Azzopardi bought into the area when it was established and said promises were made to keep the lake topped up. “VicUrban … told us the lakes would be topped up by storm water, but in the event of drought, mains are in place,” he said. “About 10 years ago we had a drought and someone came down, turned the tap on and it was topped up. The valve is there, anyone can see it.” Mr Azzopardi said he can hear the mains at the lake go on each morning. “The water pressure in my house drops significantly for about an hour every morning, but the water isn’t going into the lake,” he said “We suspect it’s being used to water sports ovals.” Michael Thandi, also a resident by the lake, said a lack of maintenance of the lakes is an ongoing problem. “When I first bought I was told I was paying more in rates for maintenance costs because I have a water-facing property. If that is the case I’d like to see them maintain the lake, because it clearly is not happening at the moment.” Residents say they were made promises that haven’t been kept. However Brimbank council’s chief strategist financial and organisational excellence Shane Marr said only storm water is used for the lakes. “It is not sustainable to fill the lake with drinking water [mains water],” he said.

“Water bodies in the Cairnlea area, including Cairnlea Lake and Wetlands, Shearwater Meadow, Waterfield Park and Station Waters are filled by storm water [rain water]. “In periods of low rainfall, as has been the case in the last three months, the level of the water bodies will drop to a low point …[but] the water bodies will be recharged with autumn

He said all residential property rates are calculated based on the same rate in the dollar. Mr Marr said residents having issues with mains water should contact their water utility.

Family violence scourge of west By Alesha Capone Police have attended 9141 family violence incidents in the west during a 12-month period, with Wyndham, Brimbank and Melton recording the highest numbers of offences. Between July, 2017, and June last year, Victoria Police recorded 2742 family violence offences in Wyndham, 2565 in Brimbank, 2065 in Melton, 971 in Hobsons Bay and 798 in Maribyrnong.
‘‘ At the Heidelberg Magistrates Court on January 29, 2019, Roimaata HARRIS failed to appear in accordance with an undertaking of bail. A warrant was issued for the offence of theft of motor vehicle. Police are seeking information as to HARRIS’S current whereabouts. Any information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
At the Sunshine Magistrates Court on October 30, 2018, a charge and warrant to arrest was issued for Can RAMADAN. The relevant charge being contravening a community corrections order. Police are seeking information as to RAMADAN’S current whereabouts. Any information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
We know that family violence takes many forms – it’s not just physical violence
-Senior Sergeant Brad Lawrence By comparison, between July, 2016, and June, 2017, police recorded 8865 family violence incidents in the west, with 2717 in Wyndham, 2246 in Brimbank, 2104 in Melton, 1016 in Hobsons Bay and 782 in Maribyrnong. Wyndham and Brimbank recorded the sixth and seventh highest numbers of family violence incidents in Victoria in the year to June last year, while Melton placed 10th on the list. Between July, 2017, and June last year,
Casey recorded the highest number of family violence incidents in the state with 4733 offences, followed by Greater Geelong with 3319, Whittlesea with 3057, Hume with 3040 and Frankston with 2718. Detective Senior Sergeant Brad Lawrence, from the Westgate Family Violence Investigation Unit, said: “The rapidly growing population in the area of Wyndham certainly contributes significantly to the high recording of family violence incidents in the area. “Local police have progressively specialised our response to family violence in recognition of the risk and complexity that these incidents pose.” He said that across the state, reports of family violence had gradually increased over time. “Sadly, though, we continue to see unacceptable numbers of women and children who are not safe in their own homes,” he said. “We know that family violence takes many forms – it’s not just about physical violence. If you feel at risk of family violence or believe that someone you know is, seek help from police or a support service such as Safe Steps Family Violence Response Centre (1800 015 188).

Ex-councillor Charlie Skidmore, who was a non-party councillor in Sunshine Council, will stand for the Werribee seat in the State elections on May 5. He was one of three candidates when nominations for all seats closed Tuesday of last week.
According to Sunshine Council, Dr Wally Mazurek is a “dangerous felon,” a man prepared to endanger the lives of innocent people. According to the council employees’ union he will never again be allowed to enter the council chamber because he “poses a threat to residents, councillors and council officers.”
Volunteers, including Irene Kaylea, donned on their sunnies and sunhats to help raise $15,000 for the Sunshine Hospital. The Sunshine Hospital Opportunity Shop volunteers, who are part of the hospital ladies’ auxilary, took their sunny outlook to the Sunshine Plaza to promote the hospital’s inaugural raffle.
Max Belfrage’s marching days might be over, but the World War II veteran’s feisty spirit still shines brightly. Health problems have brought an end to the 85-year-old’s Anzac Day march through the city, a tradition which he said began with a few “boozed-up” reunions among young men barely out of their teens.

Past Guidestar students. (Supplied)
A guiding hand for caring work Operating since 2010 in St Albans, Guidestar Training & Professional Services (Guidestar) is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) providing nationally accredited qualifications that lead to careers in the aged-care and disability industry.
Operations Manager Monicah says Guidestar delivers training with the student and industry in mind, giving the student the best possible preparation for roles and presenting a fully equipped quality carer to the industry. “We place ourselves in the student’s shoes, and treat them the way we would like to be treated. Everyone is unique, has their own story, and is treated as an individual. An emphasis is made during training that every care recipient, whether in a nursing home or a disability organisation, is an individual with unique goals that must be respected. All care must be client centered, respectful and dignified,” Monicah says. Current government-funded qualifications offered by Guidestar for those who meet the eligability criteria include: • CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support – leads to Aged Care/Disability Work • CHC43015 Certificate III in Ageing Support – leads to work in Aged Care
• CHC43115 Certificate IV in Disability – leads to work in Disability
All qualifications have theory and pratical work placement components and each student is supported to attain competency. Placement is in aged-care facilities or in disability organisations. Guidestar provides a flexible learning environment with morning and evening classes three days every week. This flexibility allows students to choose times suitable for them. Former student Christine completed a dual Certificate IV qualification in March this year. She says, “I would recommend Guidestar Training anytime to anyone wanting to complete a course. I got a job immediately after my course.” “That is a common sentiment we hear often from our happy former students,” Monicah explains. “Give us a try and we shall help you excel.” Guidestar Training & Professional Services, 25 Victoria Crescent, St Albans.

Women ready to tee off The Keilor Golf Club is calling on local women to hit the green. In a bid to raise its numbers, the club has begun a number of female-friendly initiatives. Keilor Golf Club coach Scott Wearne said recent come and try days had been a major success. “We had two come and try days recently where we encouraged women to come out and give the sport a go,” he said. “It was really well attended with an average of about 25 people turning up over both days.” Following the strong turnout, Mr Wearne said the club has expanded its offering. “I’ll be holding a series of clinics just after Easter,” he said. “They’ll go for five weeks on a Tuesday and Thursday morning and
are available to women of all abilities. We’ve also got a club starting which will have ladies competitions held on Fridays and Saturdays, so there’s no shortage of opportunities.” The club competitions will be both nine and 18-hole events. Mr Wearne said there are numerous benefits to playing the sport and encouraged all local women to head down to give it a try. “It’s a healthy, fun way to meet new people and try something new,” he said. “It’s a relaxed atmosphere and a good way to learn a few new skills.” Details: www.keilorgolf.com.au/golf/golflessons Tate Papworth

This three-bedroom unit has a tidy, fenced-off garden at the front and a welcoming ambience inside. Slate floor tiles, pale taupe walls and timber finishes combine in a palette that reflects the natural environment. A large open living and dining area, sunny and calm, abuts with the timber kitchen. Here a gas cooktop and island bench help create an inviting space to work, play and keep an eye on kids. Three bedrooms, all with built-in robes, share a light-filled central bathroom. The main enjoys the seclusion of a rear position. A single garage, ducted heating and cooling and close proximity to St Christopher’s Primary School, public transport and Westfield Airport West make this dwelling all the more appealing.
Blessed with short distances to schools, the shops and eateries of The Avenue, and access to the Western Ring Road, this three-bedroom house is a catch for savvy buyers. The living room is anchored by attractive cherry-toned timber laminate floors and plentiful windows, while a tiled kitchen at the centre of the house has lots of bench and storage space and faces a comfortable dining area. Just outside the kitchen, a north-facing sunroom has a kitchenette making it the ideal place to relax, entertain or play. Three bedrooms share a central bathroom with floor-to-ceiling tiles. There is also ducted heating and a split-system. There is an expansive carport, while a lock-up garage with workshop at the rear of the property is an extra convenience.

Resting behind the thriving trees of an established garden, this double-storey, four-bedroom house looks as vibrant outside as it is inside. Windows surround the front door, bathing the hallway and lounge room in light, while timber floors – in a honey hue – lead from the foyer into the neat north-facing lounge room. From here they unfurl in a large open space that integrates living, family meals and kitchen. Glossy royal blue finishes, from benches to splashback, gild the kitchen and complement the rich hue of the floors and stainless-steel appliances. A bedroom, separate toilet and laundry sit just off the living area. Upstairs, near the top of a light-filled landing, the main bedroom is carpeted and has its own en suite and walk-in robe. The other two bedrooms share a tiled bathroom that’s also accented in royal blue. Outside, a generous paved undercover entertainment area wraps around the building and abuts a lawn and established garden beds. Designed for comfort, the house also has a double garage, heating, security screens and timber window dressings. Derrimut Nature Conservation Park is a good stroll away and The Avenue Shopping Centre, Ardeer Railway station and schools are all within two kilometres.

Young families and investors will be taking note of this well-kept residence, the recipient of a fairly recent update in kitchen and bathroom, as well as a fresh coat of white paint on all walls. Perching on a block of about 540 square metres, it has an attractive location for a family â€“ three primary schools are less than a kilometre away; Kings Park Reserve is within an eight-minute stroll; and Watergardens is five minutes away by car.
The house has three carpeted bedrooms, two of which have built-in robes. They share a hallway that takes a right turn from the entry way and leads to the bathroom with modern white vanity, the laundry and a separate toilet. Adding architectural character, a white-painted exposed beam runs above the carpeted lounge room and through to the adjoining, tiled family-meals and kitchen area.
A mix of vertical and slim-line venetians dress windows. Grey woodgrain laminate clads cupboards in the kitchen, which also has a tiled splashback, benches including a breakfast bar topped in white laminate, stainless-steel underbench oven and 900mm gas cooktop. Ducted heating and a split-system provide year-round climate control. A good-sized slab of concrete out back
marks the spot for adding a pergola in future, while the yard it faces is large and ripe for creating personal projects. The property, which has a freestanding lock-up garage, is currently on a periodic lease of $1520 a calendar month. This is the kind of place a family could make into a forever home â€“ and it has plenty of scope for further improvement. Carole Levy 21 BRIMBANK & NORTH WEST STAR WEEKLY \ APRIL 16, 2019

Path to ownership eases – specially in the west and north-west
The tide appears to have turned in favour of first-home buyers
- Nicola Powell
Australia’s property markets are changing and in most capital cities the long path to purchase has become that little bit shorter. That’s news that will be welcomed by would-be first-home buyers faced with the difficult financial hurdle of saving a lump sum deposit amid rising living costs and low wages growth. With buyer urgency having largely dissipated in most cities, prospective first-home buyers can focus on building a savings plan to gain entry into previously competitive markets. The Domain First-Home Buyers Report identifies Melbourne areas that offer the lowest entry prices and quickest paths to purchase – go to domain.com.au for full breakdown of all Australian capitals. Melbourne is the second-most expensive city to purchase an entry level home and has the second-longest path to purchase, behind Sydney. Even though it remains a challenging market, the tide appears to have turned in favour of first-home buyers. Prospective first-home buyers will be saving for five years and nine months to achieve an entry-level house deposit and four years for an entry-level unit, shaving off two months compared to this time last year. Softer housing market conditions have more broadly filtered down across the market. Melbourne has one of the largest differences between property types among capitals, with an entry-price differential of $173,000. It takes an additional 21 months to save for an entry-level house instead of a unit. The percentage difference between entry house and unit prices is
at an all-time high, with high levels of development completions serving to contain unit prices relative to houses. Prospective buyers seeking quicker market access will need to look to the city’s edge. The west offers the
shortest path to purchase, along with the north-west. Buyers need to look towards Melton-Bacchus Marsh, Wyndham or Sunbury, which have the shortest saving time for entry-level houses at four years and six months, four years and 11 months
and four years and 10 months respectively. For buyers seeking affordable housing closer to the CBD, the suburbs of Essendon and Maribyrnong have a savings time of three years and seven months for a unit.
