Artist’s death fears By Benjamin Millar A Yarraville street artist felt certain he was going to die while being dragged 700 metres by a Jaguar driven by an “aggressive vigilante”. Mik Shida, 27, was left physically and mentally battered by the ordeal – but driver Marcus Bartlett counters that he is the real victim. Mr Shida painted a wall at the Yarraville Oval tennis courts without approval last Sunday, then drove away with his partner and another friend. He told Star Weekly Mr Bartlett began tailgating their car despite them making multiple U-turns to evade him. Mr Shida stopped at a red light at the corner of Somerville Road and Gamon Street, exited his car and leant into the Jaguar to confront the driver. He said Mr Bartlett grabbed his arm and accelerated for 700 metres along Somerville Road, driving for more than 40 seconds at speeds up to 60km/h.

It was like the most frantic 30 seconds of my - Marcus Bartlett life

Audio of the incident reveals Mr Bartlett demanding that Mr Shida let go, as an increasingly frantic Shida yells that he can’t and begs him to stop, telling him “you’re killing me”. “Halfway through the drag, my mind went to the fact that I was going to die,” Mr Shida said. He was rendered unconscious and taken by ambulance to Royal Melbourne Hospital suffering back injuries and multiple abrasions. Mr Bartlett said he had been driving down Williamstown Road when he saw three people on the tennis court “looking a bit suss”. He pulled up behind their car and photographed their number plate before following them while calling triple-0. Mr Bartlett said Mr Shida approached his car and lunged in. “Then I started driving off, thinking if I start moving he can’t keep up and he’s going to drop off,” he told 3AW. “It was like the most frantic 30 seconds of my life … as far as I’m concerned I’m the victim here.” Mr Shida’s partner, Zheani Sparkes, said Mr Shida approached the driver as they were feeling “incredibly intimidated”. “There was a sense of aggression … behind his pursuit,” she said.

Mr Shida and his partner have been disappointed by the reaction of Victoria Police, which is treating the incident as a case of criminal damage to the wall. Spokeswoman Hannah Rowlands said the driver was a witness

to the damage and allegedly panicked and drove off when Mr Shida leant into his car. Maribyrnong infrastructure services director Sunil Bhalla said the council supported street art when it is carried out with permission.

“Any works that have not been approved are normally removed,” he said. Mr Shida’s artwork currently remains on the wall, but has been tagged over with a spray painted “#TeamJaguar”.

Trader fights for local business By Goya Dmytryshchak Public events in Williamstown’s Commonwealth Reserve are costing traders, according to a petition tabled at last week’s Hobsons Bay council meeting. The petition, organised by Tick Tok cafe owner Christine Tiktikakis, calls for restrictions on food and drink sold at events in the reserve. In 2016-17, 16 public events were held at the reserve. A vegan festival and the annual Macedonian Cultural Festival were the only ones licenced for food.

“We struggle along Nelson Place and if we don’t capitalise during the summer period there’s no sustainability during the winter, period,” Ms Tiktikakis said. “We want people to come, we want people to use the reserve, but when this particular [Macedonian] festival started it had restrictions and slowly, slowly those restrictions have been abolished. “There was no drinks being sold in the park for the first year and there was minimal food.” Of the petition’s 362 signatures, less than half are from Williamstown.

Ms Tiktikakis said she was not against the promotion of various cultures and traditions, but favoured greater community consultation. “They’re not paying for the park and the council’s providing toilets and portable things for them to use,” she said. “What I’m saying is that we have 19 good Sundays in the summer … you’re taking one of those away.” Macedonian Cultural Festival organiser David Sekulovski said he was unaware of the petition. “I don’t understand how bringing crowds of people into an area could be detrimental

to a business, especially when there is a large offering of options for all attendees,” he said. Williamstown trader Sash Boseovski, president of the Williamstown Chamber of Commerce when the first Macedonian festival was held in 2014, said he supported events provided there were restrictions so traders benefitted. “You could ask any of the businesses in Nelson Place that were there the first year, people like Burger Culture around the corner closed up shop at 8 o’clock only because they had nothing left to sell.”

music and dance, Indian games, children’s entertainment and talks. Maribyrnong mayor Catherine Cumming says cultural festivals enhance the community. “Festivals such as Bathukamma provide the opportunity for these communities to share their rich history and customs, in turn promoting inclusion, understanding and respect across cultures,” she said.

A festival featuring traditional music and dance from India will bloom in Braybrook this Saturday. Now in its fifth year, the free Bathukamma Festival of Flowers features vast volumes of stacked blooms representing the cultural spirit of the Telangana people. Event organiser Praveen Kumar Thopucherla, president of the Melbourne Telangana Forum, says the nine-day festival is traditionally celebrated by Hindu women of Telangana state

Opponents campaigning against a major new warehouse proposal for West Footscray have been dealt a blow with Maribyrnong council officers backing the project. CostaFox Developments wants to build 177 warehouses, offices, a childcare centre and restricted retail premises at 25 Indwe Street. The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal is due to consider the proposal in January after the developer elected not to wait for the council’s verdict on the project. A council officer’s report due to go before councillors at Tuesday’s City Development Special Committee recommended that the council advises VCAT the decision would have been to permit the project. The report found the plans for the 72,400-square-metre site conformed to local and state planning policies and were an appropriate response to the site. More than 90 objections were lodged by neighbouring residents arguing the project will clog residential streets, increase truck numbers and destroy parklands. The report also accepted a reduction of the required 981 car spaces to 491. Wefo Residents Group spokesman Julian Davis last week told Star Weekly residents felt there remained a substantial case for VCAT not allowing the development. The decision on the project rests with VCAT, regardless of the outcome of last night’s vote by councillors.

On the run for charity The Western Bulldogs’ top dog has joined a team pounding the pavement to raise funds for the club’s Community Foundation’s programs. Club chief executive Gary Kent ran a half marathon with Team Bulldog last week as part of the Melbourne Marathon, raising money for programs including Ready, Settle, Go! the Leadership Project, Sons of the West and the Daughters of the West pilot program. Kent, who ran his 21.1-kilometre half marathon through Maribyrnong and Hobsons Bay, said the club was incredibly proud of its programs. “The demand for our community programs is growing, fuelled by the population growth in the west of Melbourne,” he said. “We need support to continue to provide for our existing

Tears as kindergartens saved By Goya Dmytryshchak There were scenes of jubilation and tears of joy at last week’s Hobsons Bay council meeting after councillors voted five-two not to close two Altona kindergartens because of a new hub being built in the suburb. The council’s administration had recommended Altona Kindergarten and Somers Parade Kindergarten be closed when the $6.9 million Altona Early Years Hub is built on the site of Altona P-9 College. Councillor Tony Briffa, who tabled a petition signed by more than 1300 people to keep the kinders open, moved an alternative motion

that the council ensure choices for families by retaining the kindergartens, and also the Seaholme kindergarten. Councillors Briffa, Michael Grech, Angela Altair, Sandra Wilson and Peter Hemphill voted in favour. Councillors Colleen Gates and Jonathon Marsden voted against the motion, the latter saying it delayed the inevitable. Cr Grech drew applause from a packed public gallery when he said: “We’re here to represent the community … let the community decide where they want to send their children.” For Save Altona’s Kindergartens’ spokesman Paul Galea and wife Sharon Slater, the win

couldn’t have been a better way to celebrate their eighth wedding anniversary. “It’s a very, very emotional process,” Ms Slater said. “We’ve put our heart and soul into trying to save these kinders and I guess that’s because these kinders are the heart and soul of our community in Altona.” Mr Galea said he was amazed people power had won. “I’m really in disbelief, to be honest,” he said. “I’m really glad that Tony Briffa put that up … that was absolutely fantastic, that the other councillors supported us. “For the teachers and the kids, this is just the best thing for Altona and the community.”

A cot for the last cuddle An Altona Meadows mother is raising funds for a cuddle cot to help parents grieving the loss of their baby. Victoria Reynolds lost her baby boy, Dexter Charles, at five months gestation in May. “A cuddle cot is a special machine that chills a stillborn baby’s body to a temperature of preservation, allowing parents to spend time with their sleeping baby,” she said. “It offers an invaluable source of comfort to parents who can do this before they are ready to say goodbye to their baby.” Ms Reynolds said they had used a cuddle cot at Werribee Mercy Hospital. “We had enough time to spend with him and say goodbye and it really helped,” she said. “I delivered him on a Tuesday night, the 2nd of May, and one of my closest, closest friends here came in about 10.30 and I asked her if she could

City flags marriage support By Goya Dmytryshchak

Celebrants back change to law Civil celebrants are throwing their support behind same-sex marriage, arguing the law as it stands is discriminatory. West Footscray celebrant Mary Napier said marriage celebrants must abide by a code of ethics which require them to avoid discrimination when providing marriage celebrancy services. She said couples from different cultural backgrounds or religions were allowed to be married in civil ceremonies, yet the Marriage Act as it stands discriminates against same-sex couples. “I think that all people should have the opportunity to marry. People shouldn’t fear this; the change to the marriage act is not going to affect anyone except for those who are getting married,” she said. Fellow celebrant Benny Roff said the tide of change in favour of marriage equality around the world, backed up by countless polls in Australia in support of a change, means same-sex marriage was inevitable. “It certainly grates on me that I’m required to be non-discriminatory, yet this is now illegal,” he said. Ms Napier said the survey was an expensive and unfortunate undertaking. “Why are we seeking opinions from this minority of people who do not have the authority to pass judgement?” BENNY ROFF AND MARY NAPIER

Hobsons Bay council will fly the rainbow flag outside the Altona civic centre until December in support of marriage equality. Councillors Tony Briffa, Colleen Gates, Sandra Wilson and Jonathon Marsden at last week’s council meeting moved a joint motion that the council reaffirm its commitment to marriage equality. It comes amid the federal government’s national voluntary postal survey on whether the Marriage Act should be amended to allow same sex couples to marry. The motion states that the council will advocate its support for marriage equality through the use of council resources such as its website, social media, phone on-hold messages and signs and posters in council buildings and public places. Cr Tony Briffa said it was “a horrible time for our GLBTI community”. “It is awful to think – it’s not only the expense, the $122 million-plus – but the fact that we’re having to go through this process to ask people to vote on our rights, as if they’ve got the right to determine what rights we have,” Cr Briffa said. “I mean, they’re called rights for a reason.” Four years ago, Cr Briffa married school teacher Manja Sommeling in New Zealand but their marriage is not recognised in Australia because Cr Briffa was born intersex, or both male and female. Cr Marsden said it was important to stand up for human rights. “We should demonstrate clearly our commitment to marriage equality and to the human rights of GLBTI people and especially young people discovering their true selves,” he said.

Footy dream ‘on the up’

Hutchins takes on new role

(Marco De Luca)

By Goya Dmytryshchak Altona Meadows’ Shae-Lee Murphy is part of an elite women’s football squad headed for the US next month as she edges closer to her dream of being drafted to the AFLW. Murphy, 23, is among 30 players Australia-wide selected for an inaugural women’s Australian rules football tour of the US. Murphy grew up in Melton with her mum Kerri and brother Ryan before moving to Altona North at age eight. “I played for Altona as a junior in the boys’ team and I won the best and fairest; I was only 14,” she said. “Me, the footy club and my mum decided to make a team at Altona so I could keep playing there.” When she was 20, her world shattered when her mum suddenly died from a brain aneurysm. “My mum was a big driving factor in female sport in the western suburbs,” Murphy said. “I’ve been on a bit of a journey since that time, because she was a single parent and she was my best mate and a major support in my life, especially for my footy dream. “I was actually off football for a year injured at the same time that happened, so I was pretty much well down. “Over the past year and a half, I’ve got back into footy and I’m back into coaching and it’s all happening for me now. “I’m coaching at the Western Jets, I got selected to be at the Geelong Cats [VFLW squad] for the past 12 months and now I’m going on this trip. I’m on the up.” Murphy has set up a GoFundme page to raise the $6000 needed for her US tour. To donate, visit: gofundme.com/shaeleeswomens-afl-tour-in-usa?lang=en-AU

Natalie Hutchins has been sworn in as Victoria’s Minister for Women and the Prevention of Family Violence, in a step she believes she has spent much of her career preparing for. One of the Sydenham member’s first acts upon becoming a Victorian MP seven years ago was to commission a report into family violence in Melbourne’s north-western suburbs. In her research she sat for two days in the Sunshine Magistrates Court and observed scores of domestic violence cases. “It made me realise that it is a jigsaw puzzle of reasons as to why we have such high levels of family violence in various pockets across Victoria,” Ms Hutchins said last week. “That comes down to respect issues in our community … and the unequal circumstances that many women face, who have not had the economic security to be able to flee a situation.” Ms Hutchins nominated the state government’s promised rollout of 17 safety hubs for women and children, at a cost of $448 million, as one of her most urgent tasks. She replaces Fiona Richardson, who was Australia’s first minister for the prevention of family violence, after Ms Richardson’s death from cancer last month.

Urgent call on pedestrian safety By Goya Dmytryshchak

Blessings upon God’s creatures

(Damjan Janevski)

A petition has been lodged with the state government calling for urgent action on pedestrian safety at the intersection of Point Cook Road, Central Avenue and the Princes Freeway exit and entry at Altona Meadows. Hobsons Bay council resolved last week to back residents by writing to Roads Minister Luke Donnellan supporting a call for action. A council officer’s report stated that in the five years to the end of 2016, there were 16 collisions at the location, which was the only spot in Melbourne’s west to make the top 10 in the 2016 RACV Redspot Survey. One of the lead petitioners, Altona Meadows’ Brett Sause, said he walked to Aircraft Station at Laverton each morning, weaving through traffic as there were no pedestrian crossings. “The biggest concern of a morning, you’re crossing four lanes of busy peak-hour traffic just to get across the road,” he said. “Some people will let you cross, other times you might get across one lane OK and then the second driver going won’t stop and you get stuck in between two lanes – it’s quite dangerous. “I witnessed a young lady with a school bag nearly get collected by a truck.” Cr Colleen Gates said VicRoads had developed a business case seeking funding in the 2018-19 state budget for safety measures including: • Formalised treatment for pedestrians and cyclists at Point Cook Road and Central Avenue. • Alternative freeway off-ramps to Point Cook Road. • Increased capacity for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists on the Point Cook Road overpass. • Alternative on-ramp to the freeway from the Point Cook Road overpass.

Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Williamstown will bless dogs, cats and other of God’s creatures at its annual St Francis of Assisi Day service. The Reverend Bill Beagley said St Francis was the patron saint of nature, animals and the environment. “Part of his story is that he used to go into the forest and preach to the animals because he believed that all of God’s creatures were equally loved by God,” he said. “A quote from St Francis himself states: ‘We are all creatures of one family. Those who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity will deal likewise with their fellow man’.” While the most commonly blessed animals are cats and dogs, Mr Beagley has blessed a tortoise, rabbit and guinea pig. “The pet is blessed during the service,” he said. “It’s a divine blessing – ‘Be well, go ye’. Dogs, they enjoy themselves. “And I have never ever once had to clean up after a dog, if you take my meaning – no little ‘Richard the Thirds’ anywhere. It surprises me.” The St Francis of Assisi Day service will run from 10am on Sunday, October 1, at 2 Pasco Street, Williamstown. BILL BEAGLEY AND CLEO

Toll cut no respite for truck woes By Goya Dmytryshchak Hobsons Bay council and residents are calling for no truck tolls on the West Gate Freeway, as the state government last week claimed fewer trucks would use Millers Road if one truck toll point was removed as part of the West Gate Tunnel project. In a press release last week, Roads Minister Luke Donnellan said traffic modelling showed 3000 fewer trucks would use Millers Road in 2031 without the Millers Road to Grieve Parade toll point.

Brooklyn resident Chris Dunlevy, a member of the Don’t Destroy Millers Road lobby group, said the government’s claims were misleading. “The original estimates were for a truck increase on Millers Road of 7000 per day, but now with the toll point moving east of Millers, it’s predicted to be 4000 more,” he said. “This is not a decrease, it’s only less than first predicted. “While we do support moving the toll east we would prefer no tolls at all on the freeway.” Hobsons Bay mayor Sandra Wilson said according to the government’s own figures, the

trucks that use Millers Road today,” she said. “The best measure for Millers Road would be to enforce a 24-hour truck ban with local trucks exempt, and other trucks diverted to Grieve Parade in the short term.” She said truck tolls should not be imposed on the West Gate Freeway. “This would significantly reduce the risk of toll avoidance and traffic displacement through the residential areas of Altona North, South Kingsville and Spotswood,” Cr Wilson said. “If tolls are required, they should be restricted to the new ramps and the new tunnel.”

Body of evidence The role our bodies play in channelling our every experience is the subject of the latest performance by Altona dancer Celia Hepburn. Body of Everything will debut this Friday at The Art Room in Footscray as part of this year’s Melbourne Fringe Festival. Hepburn said the performance was one of play and questioning, tracing the way in which our bodies determine our every encounter with our existence. “This is a dance of celebration, a celebration of our bodies as everything,” she said. “It’s the first solo piece I have created solely by myself.” Hepburn started dancing at four and has maintained her passion ever since, drawn to the physicality of performance. “I have tried lots of things and dance is the only thing I can’t not do,” she said. Hepburn has created much of Body of Everything within The Art Room after the

space was donated for her use by owner Erika Gofton. She said the space has influenced the work and driven the story it will tell, right down to the charcoal dust accumulated on the floor from drawing classes. The Deakin University graduate, who grew up in Kingsville but now calls Altona home, said she was committed to bringing more art to the west and jumped at the chance to perform Body of Everything in Footscray. “I wanted to stay in the west rather than in the city or the north,” she said. Featuring live music by Todd Gingell and Anthony Paterson, Body of Everything will be performed 7pm Friday and 3pm and 7pm Saturday at The Art Room, 125 Hyde Street Footscray.

Footscray boon for students By Benjamin Millar A transitional education course for young people with disabilities has a brighter future after securing a new purpose-built home. Victoria University’s Western Futures Program has provided skills and training for more than 400 young people with disabilities, operating for the past 15 years out of a terrace house in Pilgrim Street. A newly renovated space at the Footscray Nicholson campus, launched last Thursday,

provides the program a modern teaching space with new IT equipment, a breakout area for students and new office spaces and meeting rooms. The campus space brings students closer to other classes, as well as amenities such as the library and cafeteria. The 21-year-old Western Futures Program creates pathways for students transitioning from special schools into adulthood. Students study literacy and numeracy and areas such as IT, trades and hospitality.

Footscray MP Marsha Thomson said the state government wanted everyone to have opportunities, regardless of their background. “TAFEs play a vital role across Victoria in helping disadvantaged students gain access to training and job opportunities – and the Western Futures Program is an outstanding example of this,” she said. Students Jason, Bridget and Nicole with Footscray MP Marsha Thomson. (Supplied)

Good for business Small businesses aiming to catch their first break will soon be popping up in the heart of Yarraville. The VU Hanger, an entrepreneurial space adjacent to Ballarat Street’s pop-up park, will hand over the keys to 10 new start-ups over 10 weeks as part of the 10/10 initiative. The small businesses are in fields ranging from fashion and art framing to coffee and ceramics. VU’s three “entrepreneurs in residence”, including Thomas Anbeek, will provide mentorship and know-how as the start-ups test their ideas in front of real customers. Mr Anbeek said the program, running from October 1 to December 10, would take place in a space that has been used for community classrooms for a couple of months. “This is kind of a fresh experiment,” he said. “No one has tried this type of access to prime retail space for a week with this type of support and guidance.

“They are student-led start-ups or start-ups from the community. “We will be providing support all along the way.” Mr Anbeek said most of the businesses were in their early stages and this was an opportunity for some to get in front of customers for the first time. The initiative has attracted so much interest planning is already under way to repeat it in the new year. “We hope this will provide a kick-start to their business – hopefully they will gain a lot of learning,” Mr Anbeek said. “We are hoping these businesses will thrive. We will sit down with them after and assess how everything went.” 10/10 begins on Sunday, October 1, at 9 Ballarat Street, Yarraville. Details: vuhanger.com/ten Benjamin Millar

Central focus for survivors By Alesha Capone

On the trail of best bargains

A centre offering services and counselling for survivors of sexual assault is being built in Werribee. The Minister for Families and Children Jenny Mikakos last week visited the site of the Wyndham Multi-Disciplinary Centre (WMDC), which is set to open next year. Ms Mikakos said the centre would be a base for community nurses, forensic medical officers, child protection staff and counsellors from the Western Region Centre Against Sexual Assault (WestCASA) and Gatehouse, which helps child victims of sexual abuse.

Turn your clutter into cash while promoting sustainability when the ever-popular Garage Sale Trail returns next month. The Garage Sale Trail is coming to Maribyrnong and Hobsons Bay on the weekend of October 21-22, as 10,000 sites and an estimated 350,000 people take part in the country’s biggest garage sale. Trail co-founder Andrew Valder expects at least two million items will be listed for reuse on the trail. “Garage Sale Trail helps people to think about how we can all take responsibility for the waste we create,” he said. “Items that are reused don’t end up in council collections or in landfill. It’s also a simple way for people to meet and talk to people in their community as well as fundraise.” At last year’s Garage Sale Trail 321,000 people got involved at 15,151 garage sales nationally. The average household sale made $379, community groups gained $650 and schools collected $1500. Maribyrnong mayor Catherine Cumming said the campaign helps people take some responsibility for the creation of waste. “And as the saying goes one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” Free registration: www.garagesaletrail.com.au

It means survivors won’t have to keep moving from service to service

’’

The centre will also be home to a Victoria Police sexual offences and child abuse investigation team and officers who investigate family violence. Ms Mikakos said the centre would serve Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong, Wyndham, and Brimbank. She said having several services located in the same building meant sexual assault survivors would be able to receive help in a more timely manner. “It means survivors won’t have to keep moving from service to service, or building to building, or keep repeating their stories to different professionals,” she said. Contact WestCASA on 9687 5811 or info@ westcasa.org.au for help, or the Sexual Assault Crisis Line on 1800 806 292.

MY PLACE

really makes Footscray. We would have to be the most multicultural suburb in Australia – every race, creed and culture under the sun is here. Changes that I would make are really things that I now miss from Footscray, like Forges. When Forges closed, it was very tired looking and it felt like no money had been spent on the store for at least 10 years.

Luke Mitchell, manager/ librarian of the Footscray Mechanics’ Institute, loves the library’s history and helping members dig through its treasure trove of rare and unusual titles. He talks with Benjamin Millar.

What are your favourite local places? There are a few places I like to go to. For coffee, Addis Cafe and Roastery is a must. For cheap eats, I like both the Vietnamese bakeries for banh mi and the Vietnamese restaurants for pho. For burgers I prefer Burger Business in Nicholson Street … and a few good little bars like Littlefoot and The Night Heron.

(Damjan Janevski)

How did the Footscray Mechanics’ Institute come about and why was it important?

What’s your connection with Footscray? While I grew up in Keilor East, my connection with Footscray goes back many generations, with my four-times great-grandfather coming out to Footscray from Aberdeen, Scotland, around the 1880s. My father and grandfather both attended the old Footscray Technical School, and I did my VCE years at Footscray City College, so three generations studied

at the one school. I also studied library and information services at VU’s Footscray Nicholson campus and have now worked in Footscray for the last 10 years. What are the biggest changes in that time? The biggest changes I have seen to Footscray are the changing of the cultures. When I was at Footscray City College (1996-97), we

started seeing the entering of the Indian and Sub-Continental communities, followed by the influx of the African communities, in particular the Ethiopian. Now it is the “gentrification” of Footscray, with what seems to be a new influx of “eastern suburban hipsters” to the community. What do you love best about the area? I think the mix of people in Footscray is what

The Footscray Mechanics’ Institute started in 1856-57 and was seen as an important place for social and educational purposes of the workers. The term mechanic used to refer to any skilled or sub-skilled worker, regardless of trade. They were the forerunners of both public libraries and TAFEs. At Footscray, we still run our library and feature a collection of 21,500 books, mainly fiction. We also still retain our old billiard room, but this is not open to the public. What purposes does it still serve today? Our library provides our members with a mix of both the latest titles and items that the public libraries have long since thrown out. Many of the titles we have are also out of print. Some were published from the 1960s and ’70s, with some of the most wonderful cover art. There are many crime fiction titles and we also have a very large collection of Mills & Boon-style romances as well. Our membership is small in number, but they are dedicated readers.

Emily, who was previously a finance professional, has put her attention to detail to good use. Improvements she is ushering in include new tables and chairs for the cafe area, bathroom renovations and – best of all – loads of fantastic new play equipment. “Since we took over, we have installed brand new jumping castles,” Emily says. “We’ve extended the toddler area and installed a jumping castle suitable for children under four years of age. “We have purchased a super-sized jumping castle for the bigger children, including two mega-slides for the general play area.” New vegetarian and halal food packages are additions to the menu, with gluten-free and vegan options to be rolled out in the next six months.

For those considering hosting a birthday party at Kidzmania, there are four party rooms, including the sea theme, princess theme, animal kingdom theme and Nickelodeon theme, with all food and the all-important birthday cake included in package prices. “The party packages include food and entry for any children invited to a birthday party,” Emily says. “I find the large cafe space is a real advantage for private function hire also, as our centre can cater for up to 300 people.” With a minion mascot walking around every weekend to entertain the kids, face-painting, soccer and basketball also on offer, Emily and Mark have pulled out all the stops to ensure Kidzmania has a carnival atmosphere every day of the week.

FOOD REVIEW STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir sees big things ahead for Small Graces In Footscray, there is always life – and always new life. Small Graces is a lovely cafe situated in the new carpark building adjacent the burnt-out Little Saigon Market. In the normal turn of events, this place would register on CTS as a place for coffee and perhaps coverage in a westie eats goss story, but probably not much more. But an approach by Small Graces proprietors Rebecca and Diego changes all that. Yes, we’d like to take your place for a spin (see full disclosure below). So it is that sometime CTS correspondent Erika, her son Hugh (both very near neighbours of the joint) and I arrive for a mid-week lunch. The compact menu ranges through the usual eggy outings, soup and blackboard salads through to display sangers and gorgeous-looking house-made sweets. But our eyes are immediately drawn to the “sides” section of the food list. Here there be treasure. We are permitted, nay encouraged, to treat these as a sort of tapas/antipasto option. Our platter (pictured right, with the average price of each item $5) reads like this: Smashed avo with almond feta and dukkah. Halloumi, baharat, honey and walnuts. Chicken, adobo, chicken salt. Two kinds of pickle – red cabbage and a kimchi-like mix involving carrot. Slow-cooked pork neck with crackling crumbs.

SMALL GRACES Address: 57 Byron Street, Footscray Phone: 9912 6429 The first two items here listed are these days, of course, standard cafe fare, but they are rarely presented with this sort of finesse. The chicken thigh pieces and the sliced pork are miracles of deft seasoning and juiciness. At first I had thought this light yet fabulously yum spread would need some bread or the like, but some seriously sexy spuds with garlic and rosemary with lemon mayo on the side ($6) add just the right degree of heft to our meal. A salad of caramelised beetroot with black lentils, almond feta and dill ($8) continues the flow of fresh flavours. Our very vocal enthusiasm for the “sides” transformed into a main attraction pecking plate could, I suspect, see these items (there are several more we didn’t try) elevated in status beyond mere add-ons. The food has been outstanding – more like your top-notch casual dining standard. But even if that doesn’t transpire, we recommend them heartily. As we do Small Graces in general. (Consider The Sauce dined at Small Graces as non-paying guests.)

FOOTSCRAY G1/23 Buckingham Street, 3011 Jas Stephens Real Estate: 9316 9000

Price: $720,000 – $760,000

The Buckingham Hotel was a much-loved local in Footscray but is these days home to four gorgeous apartments, including this one. Like its near neighbours, it has a car spot on the title. Also on title is the old pub cellar – currently used as a cinema room. The front door opens to a large living room with original, re-conditioned hardwood Baltic pine floorboards and over three-metre high ceilings. A split-system cools this generous and light-filled room in the summer months,

Auction: September 23 at 12.30pm

with double brick and good old-fashioned solid building principles keeping the heat in during the winter months. Step down to the original entry of the pub, now a small sitting room featuring the original flooring. Sit here to catch the warmth through the large period windows. The kitchen stands where the bar hosted many fun nights and lazy days. It has composite stone benchtops, plenty of storage, an island bench with a twin sink, Smeg stainless-steel oven and a Blanco dishwasher.

A European laundry is set behind concertina doors in the hall that leads to the main bathroom. This space is quite large, so could be reconfigured to allow for a return staircase leading down to the cellar, which is currently accessed through a hallway trap door. The cellar space is large at five by six metres. There is a sense of light and space in the bedrooms, which helps accentuate the apartment’s generous and open proportions.

The two carpeted bedrooms have built-in robes. The main bedroom boasts a large en suite. The apartment is about the same, close distance from both the cafes, restaurants and shops of Seddon, in one direction, and the equally appealing delights of Footscray central, in another – including Foostcray Market. And just a few blocks away is the Middle Footscray train station. Sam Freestone

SPORT STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

Young gun aims for AFL By Lance Jenkinson School work and specialised training is keeping highly touted Western Jets young gun Cameron Rayner firmly grounded ahead of November’s AFL national draft. The explosive half-forward/midfielder has ticked all the boxes in a stellar junior career, with some of the draft forecasters predicting he will be selected with the first pick, or not long after. Rayner is aware of the hype, but he knows it is all just background noise until draft night rolls around. “The real people that are going to make the decisions are the recruiters and they keep their cards pretty close to their chest,” Rayner said. “I’ve said from day one, I don’t care if I’m pick one or pick 100, I just want to make sure I’m on an AFL list. “It’s good to see [the positive stories], but you just put your head back down and start working.” Rayner has been successful from the moment he set foot on a football ground in the under-10s. He kick-started his junior career with the Hillside Sharks – the club he identifies as home because of his family connection – winning “four or five” premierships at division 2 level, before crossing to Essendon Doutta Stars to play division 1, where he incredibly won two flags in a week. “One was in the under-16s one week and then in the under-18s the week after,” Rayner said.

“To win two in a couple of weeks was awesome.” The 17-year-old got his first major break as a half-back flanker in the Victorian schoolboys team and has made every post a winner since. He has starred for the Jets in the TAC Cup, dominated in the Big V for Vic Metro at the under-18 national championships and represented the NAB AFL Academy with aplomb on interstate and overseas tours. Honoured by the Vic Metro call-up, Rayner did not let the chance go to waste, being one of the side’s most influential players in a title-winning team, earning rave reviews and All Australian honours. “The feeling of pulling on the Big V jumper before the game is unbelievable, you can’t really describe it,” Rayner said. Rayner split his time with the Western Jets and Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School this season. The Sydenham resident regrets not playing more games for the Jets because the side finally realised its potential late in the season. Rayner is the September nominee for the Don Deeble Rising Star award. The award, hosted by the Sunshine Western Region Sports Club and Star Weekly, recognises youth athletes from the western suburbs who have achieved outstanding results at state and or national levels. Rayner will receive $1000, donated by the Yarraville Club Cricket Club. He will also receive other prizes to assist him in achieving his sporting goals in what promises to be a great career

SPORT Best of five for the Lions By Lance Jenkinson

■ The WRFL division 1 grand final certainly rose above expectations last Saturday at Whitten Oval. Deer Park was red hot favourites but the plucky boys from Kinder Smith Reserve almost pulled off the most unlikely upset of modern suburban footy. They went within a whisker of a fairytale ending, falling three points short. Credit to Deer Park who now rightly claim the title of the most successful team in the history of the competition. Chris Stewart and Kwame McHarg are premiership players for the fifth consecutive time, and both are out-and-out champions. Coach Marc Bullen has been at the helm for all five, and has signed on for 2018 signalling a sixth title. The club has also built a rock solid financial foundation and is the benchmark on and off the field. Congratulations to everyone involved. ■ Sunshine’s dropped mark in the dying seconds has been highlighted as the game’s defining moment. That is ridiculous, and incredibly unfair to the player. There were dozens of moments Sunshine would like over again, but that is not to be. Sunshine must put the loss behind it if it is to be successful in years to come. I have no doubt it will do just that. Brendan Hallinan has shown his qualities as a coach and as a leader of men, and his resolve will be the catalyst for continued success for the Kangaroos. ■ The Sanctuary Lakes Football Club is no more after a members vote changed the name to the Point Cook Centrals Football Club. I have no doubt the recent decision of the Point Cook Football Club to have its senior team play in the WRFL competition played a significant part in the Sharks’ decision. The points system is making playing for your local club more relevant now than ever. The Sharks showed great improvement during the 2017 season under coach Darren Findlay and no doubt will build on that in 2018 under the new name.

Ecstatic Deer Park players celebrate after the final siren, while inconsolable Sunshine players slump to the ground. (Shawn Smits)

When Kwame McHarg took Lyons down in a bone-crunching tackle and goaled from the ensuing free kick, Deer Park had opened up that handy two-goal break again. Little did the Lions know that it would be their last goal of the game. Moloney opened the last term with a goal for Sunshine to peg the margin back to six, but Deer Park produced five minutes of sustained attack, which yielded three consecutive behinds through Kevin Klix, captain Jack Purton-Smith and Condos. Those behinds would be enough for the Lions to secure the premiership. Castellano kicked truly from a set shot after a head-high free kick to get Sunshine to within three points, but it would be as close as it would come. Repeated forward 50 entries from the Kangaroos failed to make the goal umpire sweat and Deer Park held on by less than a kick. After leaving his magnet board at home, getting a flat tyre on his way to the game and finding out his spare was also flat, Bullen could hardly bare to watch the dying seconds, having a sickening feeling that it just might not be his day. But the Deer Park coach’s luck turned just in time to keep an amazing premiership streak

alive. “My heart was absolutely pounding,” Bullen said. “I felt like it was going to explode late in the last quarter. “At the moment, that’s certainly the best one [of the five premierships], they were pushing hard in the last couple of minutes, so it was an outstanding effort by our guys. “We won a premiership from taking one of Sunshine’s catch phrases grit and effort. “That’s all it was late in the quarter.”

■ Williamstown bowed out of the season on a disappointing note last Sunday losing both games. The development team lost to Casey in the grand final while the seniors fell to Port Melbourne. The club has a lot to be proud of from 2017. Finishing on top of the ladder was a great achievement, and making the development grand final was a superb effort. The end of the development competition will mean big changes in the options for players.

Hail the winners and the losers in this one. Deer Park had to will itself over the line for a record-extending fifth consecutive Western Region Football League division 1 premiership with a heart-stopping three-point win over Sunshine Kangaroos in the grand final at the Whitten Oval on Saturday. The Lions greatness soared to unimaginable heights by collecting an incredible fifth cup in as many seasons, but the respect that Sunshine gained for its part in an instant classic is off the charts. How often does a football team lose a grand final and its own supporters give them a standing ovation? There can be only one winner on grand final day and Deer Park found a way to victory like it so often does. The Lions certainly played with fire, but did not get burnt. Had Sunshine young gun Lachlan Smart held on to a chest mark, 20 metres out from goal with barely 20 seconds left on the clock, the Lions dynasty might have been over. Instead, the ball agonisingly spilled from Smart’s tired body, a stoppage was forced and seconds later came the final siren. Uncontrollable screams of delight and tears of joy came from Deer Park players, while Sunshine’s players slumped to the ground to shed tears for a different reason. It was a heartbreaking moment for Smart, one of Sunshine’s best players on the day and undoubtedly a future star of the club, that needed to be put into perspective. In a show of sportsmanship, Deer Park coach Marc Bullen tried his best to console the opposition player, imploring Smart to keep his chin up. “The last minute doesn’t make up the game,” he said. What a game it was – one that will drive hits to the WRFL website for people seeking a replay over again. The previous three grand finals were lacking in competitiveness, but this made up for all those lop-sided deciders. It was apparent from the outset that Sunshine had come to play. Kicking into a stiff breeze in the first quarter, the Kangaroos had the early exchanges on their terms, finding goals through Daniel Castellano and Nathan Lyons, the latter soaring for the mark of the day before converting. But Deer Park produced two slick transition goals and benefited from a behind-the-play free kick that gifted a second goal in a minute to Jase Perkins to lead by 11 points at quarter-time. Sunshine was on top in general play, restoring parity on the scoreboard with consecutive goals through Declan Moloney and Castellano, but their wastefulness going forward proved costly. Two late James Condos goals before half-time gave Deer Park a handy 12-point buffer, which possibly flattered the premiers on the balance of play from the first half. “James Condos was enormous in the last part of that second quarter,” Bullen said. The second half was one you would like to put in a time capsule and reveal in 30 years time to give an example of WRFL football at its best. It was hard, but fair, with players showing no regard for their own safety in pursuit of the ball. There was also periods of exciting free flowing football, but the tricky windy conditions made it hard to go coast to coast. Given the conditions and pressure of the situation, it was the grand final we have desired for so long in the WRFL. Sunshine showed that it was not going to fall away with the opening two goals of the third term through Moloney and Lyons. Perkins, the leading goalkicker on the ground with four, put Deer Park back in front twice in the third, the first one was cancelled out through a goal from Sunshine’s Lachlan Langwell.

Ruckman Stewart savours a grand final for the ages

Evergreen ruckman Chris Stewart and brilliant forward Kwame McHarg are the only two players to have featured in every one of Deer Park’s five consecutive Western Region Football League division 1 premiership glories. Stewart, the former captain, would have played just about every minute of those grand finals, save for a couple of spells on the bench in junk time blow-outs. Such was the intensity and competitiveness of Saturday’s three-point grand final win over Sunshine Kangaroos, even Stewart thought he might not last the whole match. Sporting a shiner under the eye post-game, a weary Stewart revealed that if the game had gone for another five minutes, he might not have been able to physically give any more for his side. “The runner came out and told me there were five or six minutes to go and I said ‘I don’t have that in me’,” he said. “Sixty seconds later, the siren went and I’m just glad it went.

“At the moment I’m feeling a bit like my eye, a bit battered and tired and stressed. “We had to stick to it for 120 minutes of footy to get the win.” Stewart had a superb battle with young Sunshine ruckman Jesse McInneny. McInneny represents the future of the big-man department in the WRFL, while Stewart will go down as one of the greatest ever. It was an enthralling battle to watch and you could say it was honours even at the end of the day. “He’s one of the best big men going around in the league at the moment,” Stewart said. “He’s a quality fella too, a really good bloke and, credit to him, he played really well.” Stewart has been front and centre for all of Deer Park’s five straight premierships – the nail-biting one-point win over Spotswood in 2013; the 77-point slaughter of Spotswood to claim back-to-back flags in 2014; the 136-point annihilation of Werribee Districts

for the three-peat in 2015; and the 114-point domination of Hoppers Crossing for the record-breaking fourth last year. Had Stewart not been wooed to Deer Park and sold a vision of league domination, the history books might have told a different tale. Shannon Byrnes, a two-time premiership player with Geelong in the AFL, has played with some superstars in his time, but he marvels at what Stewart has achieved at Deer Park and still rates him as one of the most important players in the side. “When you look up and down the line, if he’s not going to mark it, he’s going to bring it to ground,” Byrnes said. “He’s an amazing asset to have as a bail out kick, to know if you’ve got no options, you can kick it to the big guy and he’ll do something with it.” Lance Jenkinson

Proud Roos fall short By Lance Jenkinson Sunshine Kangaroos coach Brendan Hallinan was left feeling “a little bit numb” after watching his gallant side lose Saturday’s Western Region Football League division 1 grand final in heartbreaking fashion. The underdog Kangaroos were not given too much hope of making a contest of the grand final by the ruthless tipsters, but internally there was a real belief that they could not only challenge the mighty Deer Park, but cause an upset. That inner belief is what made the grand final defeat harder to swallow for the Kangaroos, who came within a kick of bringing down the greatest dynasty this competition has seen. “The football community thought we were going to get beaten by 10 goals,” Hallinan said. “In our own way, we actually thought we can win this, there was not one player here that thought they weren’t capable of winning this premiership. “It’s all about our grit and effort, that’s been our motto, that’s been our theme, it’s the bedrock of the Sunshine Football Club and you saw that today. “We were a kick away from winning a premiership and standing here talking about how grit and effort wins premierships. “We went pretty damn close.” Hallinan was shattered with the result, but proud of how Sunshine performed. He found it “hard to pinpoint” where the Kangaroos lost the game, though he conceded some poor entries into their forward 50 during the second quarter hurt, as did individual errors late in the game. Otherwise, he felt that Sunshine matched Deer Park in most one-on-one contests and across all lines. “Our inside forward 50 count was off the charts,” Hallinan said. “We were really happy that we got lots of rebound off half-back and I thought our defenders worked their hearts out. “Deer Park had three goalkickers only, so that tells you we covered them really well. “I thought the midfield was 50-50, their backline and our backline were similar in a way and we converted well, which has been a problem for us most of the year.” Young Sunshine midfielder Ben Dessent received the best-on-ground medal. Dessent worked hard both ways for the Kangaroos, finding space on the ground where few others could and applying tremendous defensive pressure. “To get a best on ground medal in a losing grand final team, you have to have played above and beyond what your capability is,” Hallinan said. “He’s 19 years of age and imagine what he’s going to be like in three years time. “This kid is electric, he’s something special.”

Deer Park captain Jack Purton-Smith was outstanding in the midfield. (Shawn Smits)

Hallinan has signed on to coach Sunshine for 2018. He will be retained along with his full coaching staff and all required players have given a commitment. The Kangaroos are a club on the rise and Hallinan cannot see his future anywhere else. “I couldn’t be more proud as the senior coach of this football club,” he said. “I ask a lot as a coach and everyone has stood up and answered the call. “Everyone at our football club is invested

48 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY STAR WEEKLY \ SEPTEMBER 20, 2017

in being the best versions of themselves and making it happen. “I think what the Sunshine Football Club has proved to everyone is that if you’re a small community football club and you put in the effort like we have this year, you too can be right up there. “We’ve proved it, the formula works and our game plan holds up against the best team in this competition. “We’re looking forward to bouncing back in a positive way in 2018.”

It’s safe to say, no Deer Park player appreciated Saturday’s premiership more than its captain Jack Purton-Smith. Purton-Smith could not have had more contrasting grand final experiences a year apart. Last season, Purton-Smith made the heartbreaking decision to stand out of the Lions 114-point grand final win over Hoppers Crossing after tearing a hamstring in the pre-game warm up. It was a tough call for Purton-Smith, but an unselfish move that he made in the best interests of the team. “We do a three-quarter time kick-out on the ground during the reserves game to warm up and I tore my hamstring with my first kick,” he said. “It was a very hard decision [to withdraw from the team], but I didn’t want to let the boys down. “It probably didn’t matter if I played or not because we won by 114 points, but anything can happen in grand finals, so I think I did the right thing even though it was really disappointing.” On this occasion, Purton-Smith’s grand final day could not have gone any better. The hard-nut onballer got to toss the coin as captain, played a starring role in the midfield and got to hold the premiership cup aloft on the balcony with senior coach Marc Bullen. “Today makes up for last year, that’s for sure,” Purton-Smith said. “I’ve never cried from winning a game of football but there were tears of joy today. “I’ve never been a part of something like that, it was incredible. “I was so stoked with the players, it’s an amazing feeling.” Purton-Smith paid tribute to Sunshine for making the game one to savour. “Credit to Sunshine, they were unreal all day,” he said.

Spotswood’s role in the quest for an AFL premiership Spotswood Football Club will be torn on Saturday when two of its former juniors battle it out for a spot in the AFL grand final. Richmond half-back flanker Bachar Houli and GWS Giants midfielder Callan Ward learned their trade in the green and gold at McLean Reserve before going on to play for Western Jets in the TAC Cup and then getting drafted. For three hours on Saturday, the former Woodsmen will be adversaries trying to help their clubs through to the biggest stage of all, the MCG on that last Saturday in September. Houli, 29, was drafted by Essendon with pick 42 in the 2006 national draft, but only played 29 games before moving across to Richmond. It has been at the Tigers where the penetrating left footer has made a name for himself with the clash against the Giants in the preliminary final on Saturday to be his 143rd game in the yellow and black. Houli has been embraced by and feels the

passion of the famous Tiger Army each time he has set foot on the MCG, but never before has he felt an atmosphere as good as when the Tigers rolled through Geelong in the qualifying final. “It’s very special when the Tiger Army is out in force,” Houli told Star Weekly. “There were 95,000 fans [at the qualifying final] and the majority of them were Richmond supporters. “They’ve been very patient with their support and the fruits are there now.” Richmond has not featured in a grand final since 1982. The Tigers’ last flag was in 1980. Houli says the key to Richmond’s chances is continuing to maintain its unbreakable team bond. “You don’t get to where we are without good connection,” Houli said. “That’s the great thing about our group, we’ve got great connection with all lines. “The backs, mids and forwards, we all rely on each other, we all work together and when you

find teams are gelling together, success comes your way.” Ward got his start at the Western Bulldogs, playing 60 games from 2008-11. The 27-year-old was recruited by the Giants in 2012 and installed as co-captain in the expansion club’s inaugural season. Ward, who has played 131 games for the Giants, is hoping to lead the club to its first ever AFL grand final. Meanwhile, Kane Lambert, who sparked his career with Williamstown in the Victorian Football League, will be looking to play a big role for Richmond, while Corey Ellis, another Western Jets product, will feature in Richmond’s VFL grand final, should he miss out on selection for the seniors. The western suburbs, and in particular Spotswood, is proving a great source of talent for AFL clubs to tap into. Lance Jenkinson

Fearons’ triple treat Three is the magic number for Williamstown Lacrosse Club in 2017. The Fearons completed a three-peat of premierships with an 8-6 win over Camberwell Chiefs in the Lacrosse Victoria men’s state league grand final at Angliss Reserve on Saturday. Three was the amount of finals Williamstown had to win to get its hands on the winners’ shield and it achieved the feat from third spot on the ladder. The triumph came on a day when the Fearons secured three premierships, with the division 1 and division 2 sides also winning grand finals. Fearons captain Matthew Price said the premiership haul was a testament to the team-first attitude of all players at the club. “I couldn’t be more proud of the way our team and how our club went about it,” Price said. “Our motto during the finals was, it’s all about the other 15 blokes in the side, not the one.

“That’s the way we’ve played for the whole finals series and that’s the way the whole club goes about it. “What won it for us was our resolve, our team play and the fact we were so focused on each other rather than ourselves. “It was something that you want to be a part of because the boys are all so together that you couldn’t have beaten us on the day.” Williamstown coach Damien Orr put an emphasis on making a fast start to the state league grand final, but he could not have imagined his side would be a healthy four goals up at half-time. The Fearons bossed the opening half, sparked by three early goals to youngster Callan Gibson and two to Kade Robinson, who ended up with three for the game. “It was massive – that’s exactly the start we were after,” Price said. “The young kids were awesome again. “It was Cal Gibson this week, he’s 18 years old and shot three goals in the first half.” Camberwell, featuring in its first grand final since 1939, came out strong after half-time,

scoring the only two goals of the third quarter to cut the deficit to two goals. But Williamstown steadied in the fourth quarter, maintaining the lead it held at three-quarter time. The Fearons defence, led by club best-and-fairest Huw Wilson, Chris Welsh and Matthew Neumann-Duffin, was steadfast in its denial of Camberwell’s attack. Whenever the Chiefs did manage to penetrate, Fearons goalkeeper Evan Willis more often than not denied them with crucial saves. “The defence was awesome,” Price said. “They just stood up, kept pushing them back and were very stoic.” Williamstown’s best player was Gil Cordell-Radford. The homegrown youngster produced what Price considered to be the perfect individual finals game. “They gave the MVP to a Camberwell bloke who was really good, but the young bloke, Gil, was our best-on-ground by a mile,” Price said. “That’s what big finals are all about is executing and he did it.”

Williamstown was dumped from the Victorian Football League premiership race after a 23-point loss to arch rival Port Melbourne in a fairly one-sided preliminary final at Fortburn Stadium on Sunday. The Seagulls produced a performance that was inadequate for the stakes on offer, only truly firing a shot once the Borough had pulled out to an unmanageable lead. It was a disappointing end to an otherwise superb season for the Seagulls, who were minor premiers after the home-and-away rounds. Williamstown was nowhere near its best on the penultimate weekend of the season and that was evident early in the game. The Seagulls lacked the energy they needed at the coal face, while Port Melbourne’s stifling defence forced them into errors with the ball. A goalless opening term and a 24-point deficit was a true reflection of where the Seagulls were at in the contest. Williamstown never truly recovered after its slow start. The Seagulls had patches of control in each of the last three quarters, but those were only fleeting. Players flashed in and out of the game for the Seagulls, but only Jack Dorgan was a genuine four quarter contributor, with his damaging left boot rescuing the Seagulls time and again. Adam Marcon, Ayce Cordy, Nick Meese, Ben Jolley and Jack Charleston had their moments, but nothing sustained. Joel Tippett did well deep in defence considering the amount of ball that came his way. The Seagulls also lost the last ever AFL Victoria development league grand final to Casey Demons by 12 points in the curtain-raiser. Leading by five points at three-quarter time, the Seagulls conceded five goals to two in the fourth. The senior grand final will be contested by Port Melbourne and Richmond at Etihad Stadium from 3pm on Sunday.
