National Celtic Festival ticket sales are up – and so are the spirits of the festival team. In additional to the top line-up of performers, there will be a record number of venues, including tall ship The Enterprize, which will be in Portarlington for the weekend. Festival director Una McAlinden, and volunteers Brodie McDonald and Peter McDonald, who have been involved with the festival for many years, are looking forward to a huge weekend of entertainment.

ON OUR OWN? Push to market Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula as a separate entity to the Great Ocean Road continues to gain momentum

BY ALISON MARTIN A PROPOSED funding and marketing restructure is expected to propel the Bellarine’s identity as a leading tourism destination to a new level. Geelong Otway Tourism is leading a push to have Geelong and the Bellarine promoted interstate and across Victoria, moving the region out of the Great Ocean Road’s shadow. Bellarine Tourism chair, Hugo Armstrong, said in the past, all marketing for Bellarine and Geelong had been included as part of the Great Ocean Road budget. “We’ve felt for a long time the Bellarine was

quite unique and needed its own profile,” he said. “It’s far from signed, sealed and delivered, but we have done a lot of work, commissioned various quantifying reports and Tourism Victoria is now looking at how it would be implemented. “Geelong and the Bellarine would still be included in international marketing with the Great Ocean Road, because it’s recognised, but there would be separate campaign committees and dedicated dollars to promote the Bellarine and Geelong as a destination on its own to appropriate local markets.” Geelong Otway Tourism spokesperson, Terry Hickey, said research had proven Geelong and the Bellarine was a viable standalone market.

“We have got a compelling case for the region to be a separate market proposal but at this stage, I’m not sure of what the structure would be,” he said. “I don’t know if there are plans to deliver regional boards, whether it would be a body that sits as Geelong Bellarine or whether there would be another structure, but that will be discussed. “But even outside the structure, Geelong and the Bellarine is a campaign region. It means we stop any confusion about the Great Ocean Road being part of the Bellarine. “Even on our website, to the consumer we are moving to provide information about Geelong and the Bellarine as a destination.

“It has been our approach in the last few years, and now we have evidence the State Government agrees.” Hickey said new structure funding would be decided on and in place by July 2011, however, there had already been the release of some funding for the Geelong and the Bellarine campaign. Armstrong is confident the proposed changes to regional tourism would have huge advantages for the Bellarine and tourism operators. The move would tap into the growing Victorian and interstate tourism market, with Jetstar and Tiger now operating out of Avalon airport, as the means of bringing even more people to the region.

Premier gives green light for first two precincts of Armstrong Creek

Bellarine Times

LATE last week Premier John Brumby announced the approval of Precinct Structure Plans for Armstrong Creek’s first two precincts. This gives the green light for the North Industrial Precinct (Keystone Business Park) and the East Residential Precinct (Warralily). The simultaneous approval of the employment and residential precincts means that, straight off, we can start providing jobs where people live rather than creating a dormitory suburb. The development of both precincts is expected to create thousands of jobs during the construction phase alone. The remaining five precincts are still in the planning stage.

Covering the Surf Coast & Bellarine Peninsula

Council has endorsed a business case for an $8 million redevelopment of the Potato Shed, subject to securing external funding. Council has endorsed the business case which includes: • New multi-purpose adaptable black box theatre space (250 retractable seats) • Reconfiguration of the existing theatre space so that it can be used as a single space or two individual spaces • New music lab/green room, dressing room and amenities • New back of house spaces (wings, etc) • Partial upgrade of existing critical services • Partial fit-out of existing spaces to meet functional and operational requirements • New technical equipment and fit-out • Improved car parking The redevelopment would improve the Potato Shed’s functionality and capacity so that it can

cater for more performances and people. It is currently operating at close to capacity with more than 90,000 visits every year.

Restoration of Portarlington’s historic rotunda

Works have begun to restore Portarlington’s historic band rotunda to its former glory. Jointly funded by the City of Greater Geelong and State Government, the rotunda restoration is an important part of the Portarlington town square renewal project. Works to structurally rectify and restore the rotunda include: • Replace existing timber flooring with concrete slab and new timber flooring; • Re-brace existing timber posts; • Reline internal walls; • Internal and external painting; and • Rewire the rotunda. The second stage of the project will involve streetscape works in Newcombe Street.

For 11 years, infrastructure along much of the Bellarine Peninsula has been ignored by a state government that remains out of touch with coastal communities. The 2010 election on November 27 is an opportunity to address issues in a region that has been left stagnant or suffered from inappropriate development.

The opportunity to travel from the Bellarine Peninsula to Melbourne in around 45 minutes would also be a huge boost for families who do not get together as often as they would like because of inadequate transport linkages between the coast and the city. Grand parents could reunite with grandchildren more regularly and with more certainty of service.

Last week a community meeting was held in Portarlington to gauge support for a ferry service between the Bellarine Peninsula and Melbourne. The meeting was organised by local St Leonards resident Kurt Reiter in conjunction with the Bellarine Ferry Group and was attended by over 400 locals from towns across the peninsula. The Shadow Minister for Transport, Terry Mulder and the Shadow Minister for Ports Denis Napthine joined me in attending the meeting. At the meeting it was evident support within the community for a commuter ferry between the Bellarine Peninsula and Melbourne was overwhelming. The meeting heard a commuter ferry service running daily between the Bellarine Peninsula and Melbourne would offer commuters an alternative to using the failing rail system or UKVVKPI KP ENQIIGF JKIJYC[ VTCHĹżE VQ IGV VQ Melbourne. Estimates suggest that travel times to Melbourne could be reduced by at least 30% and even more during peak times. This YQWNFPQVQPN[DGQHDGPGĹżVVQVJGVJQWUCPFU of people who currently travel to Melbourne each day but it will also create employment opportunities for workers residing on the peninsula who refuse to travel to Melbourne at present due to the poor transport options

This weekend Portarlington will host the National Celtic Festival. This vibrant celebration of Celtic culture has become a highlight on our region’s events calendar. Every Queen’s Birthday weekend thousands flock to Portarlington to listen to music performed by artists from all over the world. Plus the dancing, literature, markets and workshops add to the fun festival atmosphere. With its beautiful historical buildings, coastal scenery and friendly and accommodating locals, Portarlington is the ideal location for the National Celtic Festival. Congratulations to everyone who has supported and organised the 2010 National Celtic Festival. Enjoy the long weekend! Cr John Mitchell Mayor, City of Greater Geelong

The Coalition is committed to exploring all opportunities to make the Bellarine Peninsula a better place to live.

Wind farms The Coalition’s wind farm policy has allowed for the establishment of ‘no-go’ zones for wind farms on the Bellarine Peninsula, Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road. This policy addresses community concern on how wind farms will effect our natural environment and ensure our coastal landscapes are protected. In contrast the Brumby Government, despite DGKPI KP QHĹżEG HQT  [GCTU JCU HCKNGF VQ UGV clear guidelines on location, placement and compensation issues for wind farms. As a result the establishment of wind farms has divided regional communities. It is time to give all communities the key role in deciding where wind farms will go and restore certainty to the planning process.

Support grows for ferry

BY ALISON MARTIN

MORE than 320 people attended a community ferry forum last week, offering “overwhelming� support for the proposed public transport project. The meeting was organised by Liberal candidate for Bellarine, Kurt Reiter, and attended by Opposition Minister for Transport, Terry Mulder, and Opposition Minister for Ports, Denis Napthine. Bellarine Ferry Group secretary, John Rae, said the forum provided an opportunity for the

ferry group to present the project proposal – for a commuter and tourist ferry to operate between Melbourne and Portarlington – and for community members to ask questions. “I was overwhelmed by the number of people in attendance and the incredibly positive response from the large crowd,� he said. The ferry group had delivered 3,000 pamphlets to letterboxes across the Bellarine before the forum, encouraging people to attend and show their support.

Rae said both shadow ministers commented it was the largest attendance they had seen at a regional town hall meeting and indicated they would go back to their party to consider support for a Bellarine to Melbourne commuter ferry as Liberal Party policy. He said it had been three years and three months since Portarlington’s Community Building Initiative (CBI) meeting, where 200 local residents voted for a Bellarine ferry to be a number one priority for the town. The Bellarine Ferry Group was formed, with

Three decades of research celebrated

Marine chemists, Andy Longmore and Trevor Theodoropoulos, have been based at the Queenscliff Centre since it opened three decades ago. They have worked on a wide range of major environmental projects, including monitoring the impact of Port Phillip Bay dredging.

QUEENSCLIFF’S Department of Primary Industries Fisheries Research Branch employees – past and present – have celebrated 30 years since the internationally acclaimed marine science centre opened. The centre delivers quality scientific and education services to the government, industry and community, and has just recorded significant success in addressing the threat to the Victorian mussel farming industry. “During its 30 years the Queenscliff Centre has played a vital role in protecting and growing our fisheries industry,� said Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville said. “The Queenscliff laboratories were established to house the Marine Studies Branch of the Ministry for Conservation in 1980 and were originally based in temporary facilities connected by covered walkways at the Queenscliff harbour.�

Grant Hutchins as chair, Geoff Henderson as treasurer and Rae as secretary, and its campaign has involved hundreds of volunteer hours to inform communities about the project He said it was fantastic that the CBI project was progressing and that support for the ferry had continued to increase. The Bellarine community is currently waiting for the results of a ferry user study which has been jointly funded by City of Greater Geelong and state government departments.

Musical weekend IN A MASSIVE long weekend of music on the Bellarine, punters can share their time between Portarlington and Ocean Grove. While the National Celtic Festival is expected to attract thousands from around the country – and even overseas – Ocean Grove’s Open Mic Festival will be tapping into the local talent. The open mic event will be held across five stages, including Ocean Grove Hotel, Bardeli, Necta Bar, Zebra Bar and the Piping Hot Chicken Shop, throughout the long weekend from Friday, June 11 to Monday, June 14. The festival will showcase the diversity of the region’s emerging artists and popular local performers, along with Saturday night’s headline act, Melbourne band Rockbottom James and Quadrajet, at the chicken shop. The Celtic Festival will be presented across numerous Portarlington venues, for inquiries, visit www.nationalcelticfestival.com

OCEAN Grove’s John Bowman is confident the Australian Greens are “the emerging strength of Australian politics� as the major parties merge closer on policy lines. Bowman is the new convenor of the Bellarine branch of the Australian Greens and he is urging local residents to be part of monthly community sessions to discuss the issues that affect them now and in the future. Bowman believes if Bellarine Greens candidate, Judith Baldacchino, was elected, the government would “see the importance of the Bellarine� and there would be huge benefits for the entire community. “While the major parties argue about the economy, the Greens will put the environment and sustainability back on the agenda; and we are facing very serious environmental issues,� he said. Bowman said the Greens were about taking a preventative approach and planning for the future, with the rapidly growing Bellarine urgently needing social infrastructure. “Ocean Grove is a designated growth corridor, there’s urban sprawl and no social infrastructure. We already have a population the same as Colac, but we don’t have a town hall and there’s nowhere for performing arts,� he said. “The old fire station was put up for sale and we lobbied for it to be kept for community use but couldn’t get through to the bureaucracy and they sold it. “People of all ages need somewhere they can play in front of a live audience, the interaction and opportunity to perform is good for them. “It’s time to tackle the issues that matter to the Bellarine. A lot of people did not want Stocklands (at Point Lonsdale) to go ahead, but it still went through. “There was all this consultation on the (Barwon Heads) bridge and then the government comes up

with a two bridge plan that didn’t solve the traffic gridlock or any other issues. “The other parties used to be black and white and now they’re a shade of grey. The Greens take a pragmatic view on every social issue and not limited by a pre-determined political line.�

The Bellarine branch of the Australian Greens will host a community forum on the first Sunday of each month at 4.30pm at Ocean Grove’s Piping Hot Chicken Shop. To be included on the Greens email list for updates or provide feedback on issues, email pipinghotchicken@gmail.com

Today is World Ocean Day and communities are being urged to fish sustainably for future generations. Sustainable practices are just one focus of the State election campaign led by Australian Greens candidate for the Bellarine, Judith Baldacchino, and convenor of the party’s Bellarine branch, John Bowman.

Youth foundation grants awarded BY ALISON MARTIN AN INNOVATIVE music therapy project and after school education programme on the Bellarine were awarded Youth Foundations Victoria grants in Portarlington last night. The awards were presented by Youth Foundations Victoria North Bellarine, MISSION (Many Individuals Supporting Socially Important Options on the North Bellarine). MISSION involves a small group of local young people who work to improve their local communities, and last night was their third grant presentation. Youth Foundations Victoria Initiative convenor, Rob Evans, said the two successful award-winning projects would both have a positive benefit to the local community. The Bridging the Gap project, driven by Brooke Woodhart, is being supported by Bellarine

Community Hall to provide young and older people with a social connection via music therapy and group sessions. “This project will build positive images of young people, social connections between young and old and have possible health benefits for all participants,� Evans said. “The project addresses the need for building valuable social connections between young and old and dispelling stigma.� He said 10 young people would be involved in the Bridging the Gap project and participants would be able to gain a better understanding and develop respect for the other age group. An after school education programme, coordinated by Tina, Natasha and Mitch at SpringDale Neighbourhood Centre was the second award recipient. Evans said the project was a free tutoring programme run by volunteers, aimed at North

5

Bellarine students in Years 5 to 8 who would otherwise not be able to access the educational tutoring support they needed. “The project addresses a real need in the community for free access to tutoring for students in the middle years of schooling across the North Bellarine. It supports education, builds relationships between students, tutors and parents/families,� he said. The programme runs Wednesdays after school during school terms and the MISSION funding will allow the project to continue running as long as it is required. Evans said the presentation night, which included entertainment by Ocean Grove’s international performers, The Rustys, provided an opportunity for young people on the Bellarine to shine. Youth Foundations Victoria North Bellarine is jointly funded by the Victorian Government and the Bellarine Peninsula Community Bank Branch.

Hannah’s the top trainee POINT Lonsdale Primary School’s education support trainee, Hannah Allbutt, has been named ‘2010 Trainee of the Year’ by the Rotary Club of Geelong East. Hannah was a third generation student to attend the primary school, with her mother and grandmother both educated at Point Lonsdale. After completing Year 12 last year, she chose to complete an education support traineeship and was able to return to

Kitchen, Bathroom & 

the primary school for employment, remaining a Point Lonsdale resident while gaining valuable qualifications. Point Lonsdale PS principal, Fay Agterhuis, said Hannah provided great support for students and teachers at the school. “She assists in all classes and is involved in film making, music, ukulele, the band and all the other areas of interest we encourage at Point Lonsdale,� she said.

Harbour dredging PARKS Victoria will start maintenance dredging next week at Portarlington Harbour, after the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. The dredging will address natural sand build up which is creating a navigation hazard for recreational and commercial vessels. Parks Victoria ranger in charge, Steve McPhee, said the freshly dredged sand contained organic matter which gave the sand a dark colour and mild odour, which would disappear rapidly.

Vessel operators within the harbour are reminded to pass on the side of the dredge displaying two black diamonds or await instructions from the dredge operator to safely navigate in the harbour during the works. Beach goers are also reminded to observe the signage and remain a distance from the dredge pipeline on the beach.

Funds boost for Woodlands WOODLANDS Pre School in Ocean Grove is one of more than 600 not-for-profit organisations to receive funding through Telstra’s Kids Fund grants this year. The skills and talents of the local kindergarten children are being further developed and advanced after receiving the $1,200 grant from the Telstra Foundation. Telstra’s Kids Fund grants help provide local children with opportunities to elevate their key learning and developmental areas by funding to help purchase goods and equipment for children to use and enjoy. The programme aims to inject funds into projects that make a positive difference to kids’ future. Telstra area general manager for Geelong and the Surf Coast, Jodi Manion, said the grants programme

encouraged Telstra employees to support and strengthen local community relationships. “Grant recipients are nominated by Telstra employees whose family members are actively involved in local community organisations,” Manion explained. “Telstra is delighted that its employees are engaged with their local communities and we will continue to provide funding through Telstra’s Kids Fund to assist these not-for-profit local groups.” Since it was established in 2002, the Telstra Foundation has provided over $30million to more than 6,200 projects and programmes. Community groups to receive grants have included schools, art and culture groups, sport and recreational clubs, disability services and environmental organisations.

Supporting the new plan to improve sporting amenities in Ocean Grove were (from left) Ocean Grove Cricket Club’s Lucas Baulch, CoGG councillor Jan Farrell, and Ocean Grove Football Netball Club’s Sue Godfrey and Brian Maloney.

CITY of Greater Geelong’s Ocean Grove Sports Infrastructure Plan will be presented to council tonight. Federal Member for Corangamite, Darren Cheeseman, maintains necessary changes must be made to the plan but they can be incorporated into the design at a later stage. Liberal candidate for Corangamite, Sarah Henderson, has called on Cheeseman to pledge his unqualified support for the plan to assure local residents it will be funded as it stands. The major focus of the plan is to facilitate the relocation of three sports clubs currently based at Ocean Grove Memorial Reserve to join the Surfside Waves Soccer Club at Shell Road

Reserve which will be developed as the major sports precinct in Ocean Grove. CoGG councillor, Jan Farrell, who represents Ocean Grove, said the local clubs and the wider community had been heavily involved in developing the plan. “We have had fantastic support from the local sports clubs,” Farrell said. “They’ve been instrumental in helping us develop this comprehensive plan, which I’m confident meets the needs of the local community,” she said. CoGG councillors will vote on a recommendation to approve the infrastructure plan tonight.

Kiitos launch for charity BY ALISON MARTIN BARWON Heads’ newest designer homewares, gift, textile and fashion store is planning a special opening event with a difference. Just like the unique collection of functional and innovative pieces, Kiitos Living by Design will soon host a unique launch of the vibrant shop. Kiitos’ Maria Malakellis will invite customers and friends to a charity fundraiser/party, where she plans on donating a sum per piece of vintage Marimekko brought along to the opening. The launch will celebrate Marimekko’s unique contribution to the world of design spaning more than five decades, and honouring the work by Australian campaigner against poverty Father Themi. Themi is a former musician turned Orthodox monk who has traded his 1960s era guitar for a life in Sierra Leone to help those who need it most, by providing education and food programs. He creates awareness of the poverty, war, corruption, the dispossessed and the abandoned people of the African country, while urging the civilised world to bring about justice for those who cannot escape the devastation. As well as helping to raise money for Themi’s work in Africa, the opening event will provide an opportunity for Kiitos to be celebrated for all the beautiful and exclusive treasures it has brought to the Bellarine. Like all stockists of quality products, when you shop at Kiitos you will always get what you have paid for; beautiful, practical items that will provide lasting value for many years. The Kiitos selection of Australian and European brands are all well known for their stunning designs and now available locally. To receive an invitation to the Kiitos launch, email gifts@kiitos.com.au

Headspace a step closer at Drysdale BY ALISON MARTIN THE NEW Barwon Bellarine Headspace facility at Drysdale is expected to be operational next month, with the building and fit-out now completed. Bellarine Community Health chief executive, John Fendyk, said services would be able to start operating from the building as soon as a permanent electricity supply was commissioned. He said the launch of the Headspace youth health and wellbeing centre was an important element in BCH’s 10-year plan to continue developing “a young people’s service network on the Bellarine Peninsula, focused on positive engagement, prevention and early intervention”. Fendyk said the diverse range of youth services offered at the new Headspace would include general adolescent health, mental health and sexuality. The new centre, located between The Potato Shed

and Bellarine Secondary College, includes five private rooms which feature a high level of soundproofing for confidentiality, reception, waiting area, meeting room, staff office, disabled and family toilet amenities and all-ability access. The building has a range of environmental measures, including a rainwater harvesting system for toilets and low energy office lighting. The establishment of the new Headspace facility has been funded with a $180,000 contribution from the State Government, $550,000 from City of Greater Geelong, $10,000 from the Geelong Foundation, $62,000 from Headspace and $100,000 from Bellarine Community Health. When the Headspace centre opens and health professionals begin taking appointments, it will be open to the public Monday to Friday, 1pm to 5pm. All youth services on the Bellarine will continue to be available through BCH on 5258 0888.

CELEBRATE the resurgence of high quality, locally grown mussels by treating yourself to a feast of the shellfish over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. You can buy Portarlington mussels from several local farmers, including Mr Mussel at the Portarlington Pier, where you will find Jenny Gallop and freshly-harvested mussels ready for the pot. Melbourne visitors can still enjoy their mussels when they return home from the Bellarine by visiting Williamstown Pier and buying the popular seafood off the Sea Bounty boat.

Brigade to cook up a storm

Bellarine Community Health chief executive, John Fendyk, believes the new Barwon Bellarine Headspace centre at Drysdale will provide an important connection between health services and young people across the peninsula.

OCEAN Grove Fire Brigade will celebrate the Queen’s Birthday Weekend by sizzling sausages for local charity. The brigade will be cooking and selling sausages to raise funds for the Oncology Treatment room within Geelong Hospital’s Children’s Ward. The room is used to provide treatment to children suffering from cancer and all of the profits from the sizzle will be added to those collected at Bronte’s Ball, which will be held in October.

Last year’s ball, named after local cancer patient Bronte Russell, raised an amazing $33,000 towards the facilities to treat children with cancer locally. Bronte’s mum, Natalie, established the ball to raise funds for local services, after her own experiences of travelling to Melbourne for Bronte’s treatment. The brigade is urging residents and visitors to support the hospital facilities by buying a sausage between 10am and 2pm this Saturday outside Ocean Grove’s Westpac bank branch.

School benefits from enterprise

9

QUEENSCLIFF Primary School has received a community grant for more than $500 for resources and educational posters for its new environmental learning centre. The grant was presented by the Queenscliff Point Lonsdale Community Enterprise as part of the latest round of funding distributed to community projects. The school’s application was prepared by student, Bo Ya Ling, on behalf of the student council, explaining the resources for the environmental centre would be used by the school, kindergarten and community groups. “Having bright, interesting environmental posters and resources on display will help us switch onto

learning about the environment and improve our understandings of environmental issues,” she said. “The QPS student council will co-ordinate the purchasing of posters and resources and will be responsible for deciding how best to display and locate these resources.” Enterprise partners include Bendigo Bank and Geelong Community Telco, which contribute profits to the fund, with additional cash sponsorship from GMHBA. The community enterprise encourages the growth and enhancement of the Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale communities and funds are distributed Queenscliff Primary School principal, Peter Martella, (left) and students Daisy, Brendan and Zack receive through a transparent application and selection a cheque for $544 for the school’s environmental learning centre from Bendigo Bank Queenscliff branch manager, Howard Deane, and Helene Butler, from the Queenscliff Point Lonsdale Community Enterprise. process.

THE BELLARINE has emerged as one of Victoria’s rising gourmet destinations and the latest addition to the superb food and wine line-up, Beacon Brewing Co, is planning to lift the bar even higher. Barwon Heads’ brewer, Dan Cunningham, started out as a keen home brewer from an early age with his passion being ignited after a trip to Europe in the 1990s. The respect for tradition and the reverence toward making, storing and serving beer made a strong impact and planted the seed for what would eventually evolve into Beacon Brewing Co.

Brewing from the site of Victoria’s oldest registered brewery, within the Scottish Chiefs Hotel located in Geelong, Cunningham rolled out his two regular beers: Beacon Bitter, a rich malt-driven ale balanced by a powerful bitterness, as well as Beacon Pale Ale, an intensely hopped, dry refreshing beer in late 2009. “I created Beacon Brewing Co to explore the amazingly diverse flavours available to the modern beer drinker and am looking forward to showcasing some interesting seasonal brews inspired by some of the more extreme brewing traditions,” Cunningham said.

Brewed on the Bellarine Apart from brewing great tasting beers, Beacon Brewing Co is strongly focused on education, with a number of tasting events planned to give consumers in the Geelong and Bellarine region more knowledge and insight when it comes to their beer drinking choices. “Being based in Barwon Heads, but utilising the brewing facilities at the Scottish Chiefs, my ultimate plan is to open a microbrewery in Barwon Heads and further expand on our beer education sessions with a beer bar and band venue for ones to come and learn all about the golden ale,” Cunningham said.

Bellarine Tourism chair, Hugo Armstrong, said the tourism body was exciting to be working Beacon Brewing Co, especially in light of phase two of the Bellarine Taste Trail to be launched in coming months. “The Bellarine Taste Trail is our hero product and we are spending a lot of time and resources to further develop it,” he said. “With some very exciting initiatives to be rolled out in the next few months we look forward to working with new, innovative products such as Beacon Brewing Co to further enhance the food and wine experience on the Bellarine.”

Still going strong after 40 years

AS THE Bellarine prepares for the influx of visitors for the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, BIG4 Beacon Resort in Queenscliff is celebrating 40 years of operation. Industry pioneers, the Golightly family, have transformed what used to be a cow paddock in the 1970s, to an awardwinning accommodation resort, which was the first Victorian Holiday Park to be crowned five-stars, and announced winner of the 2009 Qantas Australian Tourism Award for Tourist and Caravan Parks. Resort owner, Lorraine Golightly, said her family’s vision and innovation have not only helped to build Beacon Resort from the ground up, but revolutionised the holiday

park experience and the industry as a whole, which has been a proven asset to Tourism Victoria. “Our dream has filtered through the generations, from 60 sites in the middle of a cow paddock when my parents started the park, to a resort where we now provide 31 luxury cabins with LCD televisions, iPod docks, a new indoor pool and spa, state of the art kitchen facilities and 38 powered sites,” she said. “It has been an incredible journey for us, from identifying an opportunity to provide holiday park accommodation to the Bellarine Peninsula in 1970, to present day, setting the standard of holiday parks in Australia.” Carrying on tradition, the third

generation of Golightlys now work at BIG4 Beacon Resort, with Lorraine’s niece, Rachael, working at the park while studying nursing and her nephew part time pool attending. The BIG4 Beacon Resort management team has been with the park since the early 1990s, which makes them part of the family too and ensures guests consistently have a great experience .

Three generations of the Golightly family are now part of the success at Queenscliff’s BIG4 Beacon Resort.

Students ready to take on the world BELLARINE Secondary College robotics students, Jake and Ben Thomas, are preparing to take on the world in Singapore this month. Jake and Ben have qualified to represent Australia in the RoboCup World Titles by reaching the robot soccer finals of the RoboCup Australian Open held in Sydney last year. BSC robotics teacher, Brian Thomas, said the

brothers would be competing in the soccer league of the world finals where the robots play a two-on-two games of soccer on a table tennis sized field. “The robots detect an infra-red transmitting ball, using special light sensors,” Thomas said. “They then use sonar and an electronic compass to determine where they are on the field and where the goals are.

“Jake and Ben have searched the internet for parts that may give them an extra advantage. “Their light and compass sensors have come from USA and they have sourced a ‘kicker’ from China that is able to spear an empty coke bottle across a room. “This has actually had to be detuned in the fear that it may break the soccer balls in the competition.”

The world finals are to be held in the Singapore landmark, Suntec Exhibition Centre. The competition was originally created by a group of Melbourne teachers and local robot enthusiasts, when they held the first event in the Melbourne Exhibition Centre in 2000. The original event with 100 students from three countries has now escalated to 3,000 participants from 40 countries.

THE REGION’S Toast to the Coast event has received state government backing with a $3,000 boost from the Victoria Events Programme. State Member for South Barwon, Michael Crutchfield, said the funding underlined the importance of supporting local tourism events. “Tourism events are the lifeblood of many of our unique towns and villages, helping to inject funds into local economies and protect jobs,” he said. The Bellarine and Surf Coast boast a fantastic range of diverse attractions and events – whether you are interested in gourmet food and wine, naturebased activities, music, or a short break. “The Toast to the Coast on October 30-31 is a fantastic weekend event showcasing the region’s first-class wine, beer and produce,” Crutchfield said. “Visitors will be well serviced by an extensive

range of accommodation options including B&Bs, motels, hotels and caravan and camping facilities. “The region’s cafés, restaurants, bars and shops will also benefit from the visitors that events such as the Toast to the Coast attract. “Tourism is worth $15.8billion to the Victorian economy and employs approximately 184,000 people across the state and many within our own region. “This latest funding will assist with the development and growth of regional events.” Funding for the Country Victoria Events Programme is made available through the Brumby Government’s Living Regions Living Suburbs programme and is managed by Tourism Victoria.

The Brumby Labor government and the Member for South Barwon have failed over the last 10 years to address this important issue. The Coalition has listened to the community, heard its needs, and now acts to deliver full secondary education at a stand-alone, green-field site in Torquay.

No dogs on beaches? DOG OWNERS and beach users are urged to have their say on proposed bylaws to prohibit dogs on part of Point Lonsdale Back Beach. Borough of Queenscliffe local laws officer, Mark Osborne, said the beach was under the control of three authorities, with the section in front of the Point Lonsdale Surf Life Saving Club the responsibility of the borough, beach to the north is marine park and beach to the south, under the control of the City of Greater Geelong. There are currently differing dog regulations on each beach, with the borough section prohibiting dogs on the

beach from December to February from 8am-8pm, but permitting dogs on leads at all other times. The borough council has resolved to invite submissions on the proposal to ban dogs all year round on the council beach, which is roughly between the Fellows Road access track and the Point Lonsdale Surf Lifesaving Club. To make a written submission it should be addressed to: Chief Executive Officer, ref: Dogs on Beaches, Borough of Queenscliffe, P.O.

Borough of Queenscliffe local laws officer, Mark Osborne, is encouraging local residents to have their say on proposed dogs on beaches regulations.

TINNPOTT QUAGFIRE and HAGG

DESPITE concerns over rising sea level precautions, the Borough of Queenscliffe has demonstrated the importance of working with property owners to ensure appropriate development can go ahead. A permit has been granted for the construction of a home on an allotment on the northern side of Waterview Close, Queenscliff; a site considered part ‘high risk’ and part ‘medium risk’ on flood risk maps prepared by the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority. The approved application allows for a double storey dwelling, with a maximum height of 7.3 metres. All sea level rise issues were considered

and the application was forwarded to the CCMA, acting as a non-statutory referral agency, and no objection to the proposal was received. In its report to council, the CCMA recommended the “lowest habitable floor of the dwelling should be constructed at a minimum height of 2.14 metres AHD, which is 300 millimetres above the applicable flood level� according to available information. Council agreed the sea level rise had been adequately taken into account to ensure the dwelling at 2 Waterview Close was designed to address the impact on the property and the risk was managed.

Minister’s key role in plan MINISTER for Planning, Justin Madden, has announced that he will assume planning authority status for the two planning scheme amendments necessary to give effect to the Point Lonsdale Structure Plan. In mid-2009 the City of Greater Geelong and the Borough of Queenscliffe both adopted the structure plan for Point Lonsdale, which straddles the two municipalities. CoGG Planning Portfolio holder, Andrew Katos, said the adoption of the Point Lonsdale Structure Plan by council and the borough had followed an 18-month collaborative process of development, with strong funding and technical support and involvement from the Department of Planning and Community Development. Katos said that in order to implement the structure plan into the planning scheme of the two municipalities, two planning scheme amendments were required – one for each planning scheme. He said that in order to provide a more efficient, co-ordinated and simplified amendment process, both councils had last November invited the minister to play an active role in the amendment process. “It has been a long wait, but it has been worth it,” Katos said, following the minister’s announcement. Borough of Queenscliffe Mayor, Bob Merriman, also welcomed the minister’s move. “We are very pleased that the minister has taken this decision, given that the Borough of Queenscliffe approved the plan over 12 months ago,” he said. “This will now see a consistent approach to planning across the whole of Point Lonsdale.”

City’s green canopy

Meanwhile, the CoGG ‘green canopy’ is set to undergo a major expansion with the planting of more than two thousand new street trees in the next financial year, and around 20,000 new street trees to be planted over the next 10 years. Councillor Andy Richards, who holds council’s portfolio for Parks and Gardens, and Infrastructure,

F R E E

said maintaining and extending the municipality’s street tree programme was an important aspect of the region’s development. “Council’s City Plan includes allocations of $500,000 per annum for the next 10 years,” he said. “In normal circumstances council receives around another $100,000 per year in developer contributions to the street tree programme. “Some trees will be planted in residential estates that have never had such plantings before, and some plantings will be replacements for trees that have been removed for a variety of reasons, most of them safety-related. “Because of the ongoing dry conditions, council at present is mostly planting indigenous tree species, usually at least 1.5 metres in height. “Following planting, these trees will be intensively maintained for a period of around two years to help them to become established, after which they will generally be allowed to fend for themselves. “Plantings are generally carried out during the winter months (May to August) each year.” Richards said the funds allocated for the coming 2010-2011 financial year would enable council to plant new street trees in the following Bellarine estate locations: * Leopold (134 trees) * Clifton Springs (88 trees) * Highton (119 trees) * Drysdale (24 trees) “A further 1,100 replacement street trees will be planted at a wide variety of other locations across the municipality during the coming 12 months,” Richards said. He said residents were encouraged to contact council and make suggestions regarding where new street trees should be located as part of the ongoing planting programme. Richards said it was essential that suitable species were placed in the appropriate locations, as growing conditions and suitability could vary widely across the municipality.

Toilets a disgrace Dear Editor, WARNING! This letter will be crude and offensive. It has to be to adequately reflect the state of the new toilet block in IGA car park which is, in short, crude and offensive. Let’s keep it simple; these toilets are disgusting. Unfortunately, I have had to use them, but believe me I didn’t want to. I walked in and out of every cubicle turned off by the wee, poo, vomit and liquid all over the bowls and floor. I barely wanted to walk in there, let alone wheel my baby’s pram in there! Fortunately my little boy is still in nappies because quite frankly there is no way I would use these for a toddler. Just imagine how you would take a newly toilet trained toddler to these toilets; perhaps this is the cause of the filth. Mums having to dangle their children over the stainless steel holes as there is no seat for them to sit on! And too bad if you would like to wash your hands after having to visit these filthy loos, because you can’t as there aren’t any soap dispensers. So when councillor Coker describes these facilities as “the latest design� I can’t help but wonder if the new council offices will also feature these “more comfortable� toilets? Laura Gordon Jan Juc

Councillors make the right decision Dear Editor, At a recent public information session regarding proposed water harvesting from Jan Juc Creek by the RACV, I was surprised that golf club members were not more vocal about the renegged promise by the RACV to supply recycled water to the Torquay golf course and other local community assets. To that end, I commend councillors for not rushing through with a decision on this issue; particularly as many people within the community have a legitimate right to be concerned about the welfare of Jan Juc Creek. While I can appreciate that some water harvesting from the creek may be a good thing, I also believe that a reasonable agreement between the shire and the RACV would eventually require water harvesting to vary in accordance with annual seasonal rainfall. This would protect the creek from drought stress; particuarly as reduced rainfall is the forecast from long-term climate change modelling. Whatever the final decision by council, it will, as a matter of prudence, need to act cautiously and with the welfare of the creek and all its constituents in mind, not just golfers. Therefore, to my mind long-term water security for the golf club – which is what this is all about – looks pretty shaky and I can’t help but wonder whether Torquay Golf Club members will, like the Friends of Jan Juc Creek, lament the broken promise by the RACV. Graeme Stockton Bellbrae

New toilet block is appalling Dear Editor, The Surf Coast Community and Ratepayers’ Association is appalled at the design of the Gilbert Street toilet block. We campaigned for years about the old block, which was a disgrace, particularly when used by the loads of bus travellers that visited Torquay. We were hoping that the new block would have been something we could have pride in. Members noted the following problems: 1. The cubicles are too small and some people have trouble fitting into them. 2. The lidless seats look like something from a jail cell and some people are loath to use them. 3. The door catches are not ‘user friendly’ and some members have found them hard to close. 4. We have always been against unisex toilets as many women are not happy with the condition they are left in. A male urinal would have lessened this problem. 5. The wall murals were a great idea and the west wall mural is great, although the front wall mural is hard to see because of the hole size. We have written to council expressing our displeasure and asking for the name of the designer so that we can express our displeasure directly to them. Considering the time taken with construction and the cost, we feel we haven’t received value for money. It has been suggested that perhaps two of the four cubicles could be for women only, to make the best of a dismal situation. Spencer Leighton President Surf Coast Community and Ratepayers’ Association

A big thank you for your help Dear Editor, Myself and my partner and my elderly mum were visiting your lovely town of Torquay in April, and after visiting your Information Centre, my mum had a rather bad fall. She missed a step and landed heavily, with blood pouring from a cut eye, hand and arm. She also had badly bent glasses and a few other concerns. We were totally amazed at the local people who came running to help – from the two teenage boys on their skateboards who picked my mum’s glasses up and put them safely in her shoe. Young mothers came to her aid, but a special thanks to the lady from the Chocolate Room – she came with bandages and bandaged my mum to stop the bleeding, and then showed us where to find the medical centre. The nurse at the centre who checked her over, re-bandaged her. We were then sent back to a medical centre in Geelong where my mum was stitched up. Yes, she did come right and well enough to attend her grandson’s wedding in Adelaide just four days later. So, we wanted to say a HUGE thank you to

everyone concerned. Lorraine, Denis and my grateful mum, Margaret. Visiting Kiwis

Questions remain over McAdam Park Dear Editor, When touting ‘The Case for McAdam Park’ in July 2009, Michael Crutchfield MP declared that McAdam Park is “an international-standard facility�. Despite this, Motorcycling Australia (MA) has relocated the third and seventh MX National events away from McAdam Park, citing concerns over the adequacy of the infrastructure. The purchase of the facility was undertaken at significant cost to the taxpayer, with over $1million spent and a further $850,000 to potentially flow. This unprecedented spending on a privately owned motorbike facility has been accompanied by assurances from Mr Crutchfield about the track’s “world-class� status and contribution to the local economy, yet it is evident that the facility is not up to scratch. City of Greater Geelong councillors may have realised this and are unwilling to allocate any further money to MA without a sound business plan. Surf Coast Shire and State Government should follow suit before propping up this financially unproven venture any further. Paul Kelly Barrabool

QA   Â?Â?   

Flushed with pride Dear Editor, I love living in Torquay. The new toilet block is visually appealing, externally at least. What message about our town are we sending to the tourists who visit our facilities? The locals search other options and are heard to comment negatively on these disgusting amenities. They are covered in dribble, they are dirty, cramped and don’t lock well. The council did not listen to public concerns regarding unisex toilets. As they are “the latest design�, according to councillor Libby Coker, I say to all the councillors to move with the times and install these toilets in your Grossmans Road offices or come down and see for yourselves how disgusting these facilities are. Perhaps they won’t be so flushed with pride after all. I feel the way forward is to drop the unisex idea, provide seats or disposable covers, and have them cleaned regularly. I love living in Torquay where I know where other facilities are and my choice is to use my own toilet at home. Pity the tourists who can’t do that.

fresh choice meals

The fresh choice in home delivered meals BY SARAH LAWRENCE THE SOUND of seasoned chicken, spaghetti bolognese and a leg of lamb with gravy can leave you feeling hungry, but it can be hard to find the time to cook such meals. Choice Fresh Meals has the solutions for those who want fresh, healthy and affordable meals delivered to their door. Point Lonsdale resident, Michael Lillies, started receiving the meals three years ago – meals he describes as “marvellous”. Every week for around $60, Lillies has seven dinner meals delivered that he chooses from Choice Fresh Meals extensive menu. “I order lots of different ones like pork and plum sauce, baked ham and mustard sauce and turkey and port gravy,” said Lillies. “They have a very good flavour. I enjoy them. I only order the regular size, not the large, because I find that is enough for me.” The meals come chilled not frozen, giving him the option to put them in the fridge or freezer. “I find it easy to just put them into the microwave for three or four minutes but you can put them in the oven,” he said. “I’ve got no complaints. They change the menu seasonally too which gives me

a good variety. They are also very well priced.” Part of his respect for the company comes from their attention to customer service. “They provide very good service, they never forget me,” he said. “Once I forgot to ring up on the Monday to place for my order for the week and they called me to check everything was okay.” For Lillies’ family, the meals bring peace of mind that the 87 year old has a healthy meal ready to go.

“It takes the pressure off my daughter worrying about cooking for me. My son actually saw me having them and he gets them too,” he said. Lillies admitted, though, that he doesn’t believe they are just for seniors. “Anyone could eat them, they’re fantastic. I know I am old but I can’t see any reason why younger busy people couldn’t have them,” he said. “I recommend them to my friends because they’re better tasting than the other alternatives out there.”

Who are Choice Fresh Meals? CHOICE Fresh Meals has been successfully operating in Victoria for the past 14 years. They deliver to their customers’ doors all over the Bellarine Peninsula, Melbourne, Geelong and Mornington Peninsula. The meals are for anyone who finds they don’t have the time or ability to cook. The company offers a huge selection of over 80 meals that includes breakfasts, roasts, casseroles, quiches, pastas, fish, grills, pies, soup and dessert. Prices for main meals are affordable,

ranging from $8.30 to $10.90 as well as a delicious range of desserts from $4 to $4.85. The meals are also made with high quality ingredients by trained chefs who have worked in five-star establishments. Deliveries occur multiple times throughout the week offering their customers the convenience of always having fresh meals ready to go. For more information call 1300 430 488 or visit www.choicefreshmeals. com.au

First Home Owners Grant

THE VICTORIAN Government has extended and increased the First Home Bonus for newly constructed homes in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria. • a new home in metropolitan Melbourne increases from $11,000 to $13,000, and • a new home in regional Victoria increases from $15,500 to $19,500. These bonuses are in addition to the $7,000 First Home Owner Grant and bring the total amounts available to first home buyers of a newly constructed home to $20,000 (for a home in metropolitan Melbourne) and $26,500 (for a home in regional Victoria). The new amounts apply to eligible transactions with a commencement date of on or after 1 July 2010 and on or

duty savings in comparison to buying an established property of similar value. For example, if you buy land for $250,000 and build for $250,000 you will have a property valued at approximately $500,000 when it is completed. In this case you would only pay stamp duty on the land and this would be approximately $8,870. If an established home is purchased for $500,000 then stamp duty is applicable on the entire purchase price. Stamp duty in this case would be $21,790. In both of these examples an assumption has been made that the purchaser would make the property their principal place of residence which entitles them to a cheaper rate of stamp duty. In the below examples, building would result in a

before 30 June 2011. The Bonus amount for the purchase of an established home, currently $2,000, will expire on 30 June 2010. At present first home owners receive $9,000 for an established property and from 1 July 2010 this will be reduced to $7,000. The table below illustrates what first home owners may be eligible for from 1 July 2010 until 30 June 2011: Buy land and build OR purchase an established property? Many first home owners in regional Victoria are currently considering the option of purchasing land with the view to construct. As well as obtaining $22,500 (current) or $26,500 (after 1 July 2010) there are substantial stamp

stamp duty saving of $12,920. The First Home Owners Grant available for constructing a new home in regional Victoria would be $13,500 more purchasing an established property. From 1 July 2010 this difference will increase to $19,500.

‘Little Aussie Battler’ is battling THE AUSTRALIAN dollar has been on a wild ride in recent times. Against the US dollar, the AUD has fallen 14 per cent in less than two months – a hugely volatile move for the currency of a stable western democracy with a supposedly bullet-proof economy. Why this dramatic move? It appears that international investors are starting to doubt the “miracle economy” story as the assumptions behind Australia’s strength are questioned. China is said to be trying to prick its property bubble; the Rudd government looks like it is trying to destroy the mining industry; news of Australia’s housing bubble is getting air; and Greece is highlighting the risk of sovereign debt contagion. Into this fragile atmosphere it is dawning on investors that Australia has an enormous debt problem of its own. Although government debt is considered relatively modest, Australia has a worrying amount of private debt that is largely foreign sourced making our banking

industry highly vulnerable to problems in international credit markets. This is not new information but until recently it has been either denied or ignored. Remember the ridicule heaped on poor old Barnaby Joyce when he raised concerns about Australia’s foreign debt? It seems he knew what he was talking about. Remember Paul Keating’s concern over Australia’s level of foreign debt in 1986 and the warning of the dangers of becoming a banana republic? Well foreign debt as a percentage of GDP has tripled since then. We are now approaching levels previously experienced only during the Great Depression. Barnaby is not the only one. Jim Rogers, a well renowned international investor, recently added to the growing chorus of concern, saying “If the Australian economy keeps taking on debt, the next time there’s a bear market, the Australian dollar will collapse”. The recent 14 per cent plunge in the dollar may just be the beginning.

A leader in innovation POINT Lonsdale Primary School is renowned for its innovative curriculum and families are invited to learn more about its strategies and resources during an escorted tour. Enrolments are currently open for 2011 and principal, Fay Agterhuis, is encouraging parents and students to inquire now about the opportunities Point Lonsdale P.S. provides. Point Lonsdale PS aims to engage the whole school community in ensuring the healthy development of every child so that each has the knowledge, competency and resilience to be successful in a rapidly changing world. The foundation of learning at Point Lonsdale is a high standard of literacy and numeracy, enhanced with a diverse programme of interest-focused activities, camps and excursions. The state-of-the-art building design promotes shared learning through the creative use of spaces

linking the classes and specialist library and arts centres. However, this year the school has also opened a dedicated learning centre for its Prep students. With 200 students, Point Lonsdale is large enough to offer a wide range of opportunities with class sizes small enough to maintain a personalised approach to teaching. Agterhuis said the school had adopted teaching styles and instructional strategies that empowered students to make choices and value learning because they were connected to real situations. “We are committed to maintaining a school culture that values individual differences, celebrates success and has high expectations of all students,” she said. “The unique approach to learning is tailored to meet the individual interests of every student and includes diverse education from creative arts and

music to film making and circus skills.” The school has strong connections with the community, including the fundraising monthly markets and regular gardening sessions at the indigenous community garden in Queenscliff. Students also tend their own vegetable and herb garden in the school grounds, harvesting the homegrown produce and preparing it in the purposebuilt community kitchen. The cooking classes are part of a broad programme of activities offered in addition to the comprehensive academic curriculum taught at Point Lonsdale PS. Healthy eating and exercise are also promoted through Fresh Fruit Friday and encouragement of active travel to school and student involvement in sports, swimming and surfing activities. For more enrolment information or to arrange a school tour, contact Point Lonsdale Primary School on 5258 1501.

Have some beach fun this winter SCHOOL students throughout the Surf Coast and Bellarine have been given a taste for beach volleyball following a six-week programme to introduce them to the sport. As part of an introduction to the sport, Victorian Beach Volleyball hosted the programme for Year 5 and Year 6 students. The classes enabled the children to learn the basics of beach volleyball in a friendly and noncompetitive environment. And getting the children out of their comfort zone of looking to netball and Australian football seems to have worked, with a number joining the junior competition, which began last week. “We have found that we have retained a lot of the children from the programme who have now joined the junior competition,” said Geelong Vic Beach’s Greg Jury. “We have children from schools along the Surf Coast and Bellarine playing in the

competition, which is open to all ages. The youngest we have is seven.” The indoor centre – which is based in Crown Street, South Geelong – will soon celebrate its second birthday and boasts four indoor beach volleyball courts and a dodgeball/soccer pitch. Teams in the junior beach volleyball competition are arranged on standard, not age, and are mixed, with an even spread of boys and girls. “It is pretty even across the board; we probably have more girls in the Years 5 and 6 competition,” Jury said. While professional beach volleyball teams have just two players, the junior competition varies and can range from four up to a maximum of six players, dependant on the standard. For more information on beach volleyball or the local competitions, Vic Beach Geelong on 5222 4400 or visit www.geelongvicbeach.com.au

Calling on smart schools SCHOOLS throughout the Surf Coast and Bellarine are being challenged to commit to the environment. In announcing the opening of the 2010 Victorian ResourceSmart School of the Year Awards, Member for South Barwon, Michael Crutchfield, encouraged all schools to get involved. Crutchfield, who is also the parliamentary Secretary for the Environment and Water, said in previous years local schools had been well represented at the awards with many making the finals and some taking out category awards. “In 2007 we saw Torquay Primary School lead schools in the region taking out the Biodiversity Smart™ School of the Year Award at the ResourceSmart School of the Year Awards and last year they were a finalist again,” he said. “The government is taking action to address the challenges facing our environment and encourages all Victorians to also do their part for the environment. “And by recognising the Victorian schools that are leading the way on sustainability, it encourages others to follow their example.” This year’s awards include the Rubbish Free Lunch Challenge which offers $50,000 in prizes to assist schools with sustainability projects. The Rubbish Free Lunch Challenge encourages students to bring lunches without surfcoasttimes.com.au

any wrapping on July 21 to promote good sustainability practices. Schools can enter any of the five categories: ● Biodiversity Smart School ● Energy Smart School ● Water Smart School ● Waste Smart School ● Community and Partnerships Smart School. The awards have expanded this year to recognise the partnerships made with the community to achieve environmental outcomes. The awards, developed by Sustainability Victoria, recognise state school achievements in working towards a sustainable future. The awards ask participating school students to develop initiatives for their schools that help them become more environmentally friendly. Schools entering three or more of the ResourceSmart categories will automatically be considered for the ResourceSmart School of the Year Award. There will be separate judging categories for primary and secondary schools, however, only one school will be recognised as the overall winner. Entries close on August 25, with the awards ceremony being held in November at BMW edge in Federation Square.

New equipment for local SES units LOCAL SES units have received a boost after a renewed sponsorship announcement helped to secure new rescue equipment. Following last week’s announcement that AAMI has extended its sponsorship, Torquay, Lorne and South Barwon SES units have all benefitted. Torquay SES unit received three traffic wands, four e-flares and an LED torch; Lorne SES unit received a chainsaw sharpener, a wet and dry vacuum and eight LED torches; while South Barwon SES unit has received a drill, three rechargeable torches and a set of high performance lights. Torquay Unit controller, Graeme Jackman, said the programme was an effective way for individual SES units to update some of the equipment and keep pace with technological advances to

help them respond in emergency circumstances. “Often it’s the little things such as having a reliable GPS unit or a fully-functioning ladder or pole saw, which can make a big difference to our ability to be fully effective,” he said. “This programme really demonstrates how the SES and AAMI work together for a safer community.” Since 2003, AAMI has contributed $2million in a programme that allows the VICSES to buy rescue equipment, which is used to carry out the group’s invaluable work in serving the community. Under the program, each of VICSES’ 141 operational and 10 support units receive equipment. “The VICSES plays an integral role in supporting our community

through crises,” said AAMI executive sponsorship manager, John Bennets “In the last year, volunteers from the south west have assisted with the aftermath of the March storms in Melbourne, flown to Western Australia to help with their hail storm clean up and helped their local communities with storm and road accident rescues.” “Whether they are dealing with flooding, storms or a road accident, it’s in all of our best interests to have our VICSES units equipped with the tools they need to when dealing with the hundreds of accidents or emergencies they attend throughout the year. “The funding allows the VICSES to buy essential rescue equipment used to carry out their often life saving work.”

Get set to go BY ALISON MARTIN OCEAN Grove’s Justin Keenan and his five-piece punk rock band will return to The Bellarine for this weekend’s National Celtic Festival, with five albums and two tours of Europe behind them. The Go Set combine the traditional sounds of bagpipes, fiddle, accordion and mandolin with contemporary rock guitars and a penchant for socially and politically motivated lyrics. The band features Keenan on vocals and guitars, Mark Wallace on accordion, Ago Soldati on drums, Lachlan McSwain on bagpipes, Evan Young on bass and vocals, Sam Gathercole on fiddle and Ben Fraser on vocals, mandolin and guitar. Keenan includes on the band’s list of influences everything from The Dubliners and The Pogues, to The Clash and The Sex Pistols,

describing their sound as “folk music for a new generation�. The Go Set last performed at Portarlington’s National Celtic Festival in 2007 and are guaranteed to impress this year’s audience with their awesome sound, mixed with political sentiment and social conscience. Just as the festival has grown and evolved, so too has The Go Set, which can be heard on their latest albums, but without losing the band’s punk origins. The Go Set’s first album, Sing A Song Of Revolution, combined the folk and traditional sounds of bagpipes and mandolin while there is a definite punk influence on the fourth studio album, The Rising. Check out The Go Set and the amazing lineup of international and Australia performers; join a workshop; see the Golden Fiddle awards; join the Ceili dance party; don’t miss the bigger-

The Great ‘Outdoors’ WITH this and the next Grapevine column, I thought I’d focus on some great new developments that have passed over my desk in the last week or two. They’re quality products, sensible ideas, and on the whole, pretty cool, I reckon! Hope you think so too; the first is a great new range of outdoor glassware.

Plumm ‘Outdoors’ wine glassware (approx $15ea or $50x4 pack)

Once you see and feel them, you’ll know what I’m talking about… now all I need is a pool for summer!

First and foremost, let me say that I see the famous ‘Riedel’ glassware ranges as the world benchmark for wine glassware, but when I clapped eyes on this new range I couldn’t help but be impressed. The ‘Plumm Outdoors’ range of wine glassware is not unlike some of my favourite Riedel glasses in style and size (yep, they look and feel like the real thing) yet they’re made for outdoor entertaining from a polycarbonate which is a high grade plastic that is ‘nearly’ impossible to break. They’re shatterproof, cloud free, odour resistant, but the best thing is how incredibly smart and sophisticated they would look by the pool, out on the deck or in the picnic hamper at the park! There are also two other normal glassware ranges, ‘Plumm Vintage’, and ‘Plumm Handmade Vintage’ that are made in Europe (at the old Riedel factory so I’ve heard). The packaging is again, suave/sophisticated and super smart and they’ve even got a full endorsement from celebrity sommelier, wine writer and wine judge, Matt Skinner, who is on board as brand ambassador.

Next week

Introducing the new ‘One Planet’ range of quality wines featuring an Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc and a McLaren Vale Shiraz, using the environmentally sustainable Tetra Prisma Pak packaging concept. It is used with a view to minimising the carbon footprint at every stage of the products’ life cycle.

Will we still be eating fish in 2048? SCIENTISTS are predicting that if we continue to fish and eat seafood as we are currently doing, then we will see the end of most seafood by 2048. This is the shocking message in The End of the Line, the second film of the 2010 season to be screened by the Surf Coast Energy Group, this Friday at Surfworld at 7pm. “We are all connected by the world’s oceans and it is imperative for us, as a global community, to make sure our fishing and eating habits are sustainable,” said SCEG member Anne Sullivan. This revealing documentary follows the investigations of reporter, Charles Clover, as he confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs, who exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans. The End of the Line chronicles how demand for cod off the coast of Newfoundland in the early 1990s led to the decimation of the most abundant cod population in the world, how hi-tech fishing vessels leave no escape routes for fish populations and how farmed fish as a solution is a myth. This is the first major documentary to expose what is essentially a problem which is ‘out of sight and out of mind’ for most of us. Can we, as consumers, avoid buying endangered fish? How do we make sure our politicians do not ignore the advice and pleas of scientists and what are the ways to keep fishermen from breaking quotas and fish illegally? The End of the Line suggests that we need to reduce the number of fishing boats across the world, protect large areas of the ocean through a network

A lumberjack spots a hummingbird

FEELING a little nostalgic recently, I hunted through my recipes gathered from many sources, for a cake I recalled enjoying with university friends about 20 or so years ago. My recollection was that it was a carrot cake; moist, large, layered with a cream cheese frosting and just divine. I was compelled to make it last week – and there was the recipe, written in a child’s careful script. You see the daughter of my friend had obviously been given the task to write out the recipe for me, probably an inventive way for the mother to get the child to practice handwriting, comprehension and spelling skills. So I baked the cake and took it into work to share with my colleagues. It was a real hit for morning tea and there was not a single crumb left for the birds. My work buddies declared it the best hummingbird cake they’d eaten! Hummingbird? I thought of it merely as a carrot cake. So I have been doing quite a bit of research on the net – for no result. I used my very trusty Margaret Fulton Encyclopedia, and to my surprise there was the exact same recipe for the ‘carrot cake’ my friend had given me all those years ago!

So when is a carrot cake exulted to the ranks of hummingbird? It seems when it has pineapple in it. So I am really no wiser about why this cake is named so, except it does appear to be a cake from Oz. But now my curiosity and nostalgia were piqued. As I surfed the net I wanted to know about Lumberjack Cakes; again, the indicators are that this too is a truly Australian cake made from Granny Smith apples, dates, with a distinctive topping of butter, brown sugar and shredded coconut. I guess the moist fruit cake with the high natural sugar content of the dates would have been a true energy hit to keep the workers sustained for the afternoon’s heavy work. During my research I also came across an Election Cake – a rich, yeast-raised cake replete with nuts, candied fruit and sherry soaked raisins, created in the 18th century to celebrate election day. Of course, another cake famous for its name and region is the Black Forest Cake or Schwalder Kirschtorte. Layers of chocolate sponge cake with cherries and kirschwasser-flavoured cream on a base of crisp almond pastry is a regional specialty served with coffee in Germany, originally the Black Forest

region, of course. It is in that region that the kirschwasser, a clear mountain berry brandy is made. Can’t you just imagine a handful of muscled lumberjacks rumbling about the forest after a few warming nips of the fire water kirschwasser, trying to spot humming birds in the forest?

Carrot (Hummingbird) Cake Ingredients For the cake 2 cups plain flour 2 tspns baking powder 1 ½ tspns bi-carb soda 1 ½ tspns salt 2 tspns cinnamon 2 cups sugar 1 ½ cups salad oil 4 eggs 2 cups grated carrot ½ cup chopped walnuts 340g crushed pineapple, drained For the frosting ½ cup margarine or butter

Method

For the cake Sift the flour, baking powder, teaspns bi-carb soda, then add the salt and cinnamon. Add the sugar, salad oil and eggs and beat all together. Add the grated carrot, walnuts and pineapple and beat all together. Pour into 3x20-centiemtre greased and floured cake tins and bake at 170 degree Celsius for 35 minutes before allowing to cool in pans for five minutes before turning onto a wire rack.

Mystery, mischief and magic

THE 2010 Alcoa Theatre Season continues in June at GPAC with Lying Cheating Bastard, the intriguing true tale of a young trickster irresistibly drawn into the seedy underbelly of Sydney. It is the story of infamous con man Jimmy Garcia (aka The Cricket), and how he became the most successful conman in Australia by the age of 27. Part mystery, part coming-of-age story, part demonstration of the finer arts of trickery, Lying Cheating Bastard is the extraordinary story of Garcia’s induction into the murky world of gangsters and grift. Featuring close-up projection of Garcia’s card scams live on stage, Lying Cheating Bastard stars Australia’s number one magician, James Galea, and his increasingly astonishing feats of skill with cards and sleight of hand. Galea started learning magic at age 14 from someone he thought was a magician. He later found out that his mentor moonlighted as a professional con man who cheated in high stakes poker games. While his colleagues were learning how to make hankies disappear from old magic books Galea learnt how to deal aces from the bottom of the deck from a professional card shark. The charismatic trickster uses these skills to devastating effect in this gripping play.

James Galea plays Jimmy Garcia in Lying Cheating Bastard.

From Byron to Bells BY ELEANOR WOODS

SURF Coast art enthusiasts can get a taste of the world at Torquay’s Tigerfish Gallery this month when Byron Bay based Spanish artist, Alberto Sanchez, exhibits. Owner of Tigerfish, Grant Forbes, was impressed by Sanchez’ style, saying it was unique, original and accessible. The artist’s limited edition, hand coloured photographic prints are taken to with paint, crayon, pencil and charcoal before being mounted on plywood and lovingly dressed with surfboard resin. “The effect is amazing. The colours he uses and the process he goes about to get the end result is really cool,” Forbes said. And, though the photos were all taken in Byron Bay, they reflected the broadly felt affection for surfing and surf culture. “People really ‘get’ them. They are popular with both women and men, which is great,” Forbes said. “They are a surf image without being in your face and hardcore”. Forbes stumbled upon the rising artist in Byron Bay store Retrospect, which Surf Coast artists also exhibit in.

Welcome to the ‘new’ Scorched Tuesday 8 June 2010

BY NATHAN HALE

WITH most businesses there are common misconceptions, but perhaps non more so than with Torquay restaurant Scorched. This local beachfront eatery is often portrayed as a high-end establishment where you only go for special occasions. That may have been the case previously, but owners James White and Vanessa Joachim are keen to shut the door on that image and open up a new one. The pair – who were instrumental in earning Bellbrae Harvest a coveted Chef’s Hat in the 2009 Age Good Food Guide – purchased Scorched in December last year. Over the past six months they have worked hard to set the record straight about what the ‘new’ Scorched stands for. Scorched offers an extensive, seasonal grazing menu, designed to encourage its guests to share a variety of dishes. This means produce-driven food, cooked simply but packed with flavour, complemented by a list of both local and international wines. The service is both professional and attentive, but above all, friendly, while the restaurant has a warm, cosy feel in these cooler winter months, and when the sun is out, the front windows concertina open to take full advantage of the fabulous ocean views.

Vanessa Joachim and James White are keen to change people’s perception of Scorched. Photo: ALISON MARTIN

James and Vanessa are determined to create an environment for all to enjoy. “Whether it be time out with the girls, a bit of business over a quick lunch or simply a relaxing night out with family or friends, we want people to realise that we are not just here for the special occasion,” James said.

Previously, Scorched was never considered to be a restaurant suitable to take young families – this is not the case now. “I was always brought up where the family sat down together and shared their meals,” said James. ���That’s what happens at home with my wife,

Leanne, and our two young children, and that’s what we love to see here.” The menu at Scorched is flexible and varying; it’s definitely great value, and it’s certainly not hard to find something to enjoy. “We often just ask people to tell us what they like, and then we’ll simply look after them,” said Vanessa. The pair are working together with local winemakers to host monthly wine dinners over the coming months – the first of which will showcase the wines of Peter Flewelyn from nearby Pettavel Winery on Thursday, June 17, with bookings available at the restaurant. Scorched has also recently released its own house-labelled coffee for sale to the public. Specifically blended for Scorched, the 250-gram packs can be purchased from the restaurant, or why not drop in anytime during the day and let one of the staff make one for you. Having worked together for the best part of a decade, James and Vanessa form the ideal partnership. Since taking over at Scorched they have managed to put together a venue that matches fabulous food and wine with friendly customer service in a comfortable, relaxed environment – all with a view to die for. You could say that this best sums up the ‘new’ Scorched. Try it yourself, you will be pleasantly surprised.

THE FIRST draft of the Bellarine Horse Trails Study has been completed and is open for public comment. The study was initiated by the City of Greater Geelong to investigate the need for, and potential of, developing a network of horse trails on the Bellarine Peninsula. The study also recommends management methods to ensure the trails are sustainable, affordable and benefit the community. Coryule Ward councillor, John Doull, said the draft report was developed following extensive community consultation. “We started consultation last year, with an online survey as well as phone interviews with horse riding groups, land owners, VicRoads and environment groups,� he said. “From the outset we wanted the community to have a high level of input into the recommendations of this report, and I encourage community members to provide comment on the first draft.� “The aim of the study is to identify the best method for developing functional, safe and

By Enzo Raimondo, CEO REIV

Log on to get sales results EACH Saturday the REIV compiles an auction and private sales results report, which takes into account the week’s sales activity. This information is then posted on www.reiv. com.au on Saturday evening, and printed in a range of newspapers over the following days. Two weekends ago more than nine out of 10 of all auction results were available on the day of auction, making it is the most comprehensive and timely report on the residential market. To interpret the auction results, it is important to comprehend the meaning of the different terminology used. Clearance rates are published for the properties sold at auction, providing an overview of the level of demand for property on offer on any given day. When looked at over a period of time, it can also be used as an indicator to understand the overall strength of the auction market. For instance, the clearance rate this year is tracking at around 82 per cent. This represents a stable market, with a reasonable level of underlying demand. The clearance rate is a figure that includes properties that are sold before auction, sold at auction, and sold almost immediately after auction. To ensure transparency, the different segments of the clearance rate are also broken down and reported, as are the number of auctions where no result was received. Those results are followed up and recorded. Properties listed as sold before auction are those listed for sale then sold in the week preceding the scheduled auction date. Sold at auction refers to properties sold on the day of the auction, either under the hammer or by later negotiation. Those listed as private sale refer to properties listed on the market that invite prospective purchasers to make an offer. This also includes properties passed in at auction and subsequently sold two or more days afterwards Properties listed as passed in failed to attract offers at a level the vendor was prepared to accept. These properties are often subsequently listed for private sale or withdrawn from the market.

Industry Info

Nurturing your investment property IF YOU are buying a house as an investment property, you will have done your homework. You know that it’s worth a certain amount per week as a rental property and that it’s in an area that is likely to show a solid capital return. However, there’s quite a gap between knowing how much your property should deliver you in rent, and actually having your property tenanted and the rent regularly rolling in. It’s the same with the capital improvement; if your property is not well maintained – worse, if it’s actually damaged or allowed to deteriorate – the amount of capital improvement could be substantially eroded. That’s where the award-winning professional property management team at Barry Plant Torquay can help you.

Home Owners and Investors

Dear Home Owner/Investor, Property values on the Surf Coast and particularly Torquay and Jan Juc have risen dramatically in recent times. Residents we have spoken to are most interested to know the current value of their properties as this allows them to pursue other financial initiatives or to ensure that their homes are adequately insured. To assist our local residents we are conducting an exciting new initiative. Over the next three (3) months we will be offering our opinion on the value of every home in the area. Each appraisal will only take approximately 10-15 minutes, as we hope to complete one street per day.

What you will receive    

      

How do you participate?  Â?Â?Â?Â? ­ €‚  Â?€ 0437 882 088 or 5261 2101 – patrickh@hayden.com.au Strict confidentiality will be adhered to for each property. We look forward to your participation and to meeting with you.

WRECK OF THE ‘JOSEPH H SCAMMELL’ CONT.: Extracts from ‘History of Torquay’ by James A Baines 1938 A gang of laborers, with lorries, engaged by Captain Douglas, arrived at the scene at daylight on Monday to salvage cargo from the beach on behalf of the Underwriters, and at once set to work collecting the cargo from the beach and placing in it stacks, but they did not calculate on the extra high tide, which that night washed most of the salvage cargo back to the sea again. This tide also had the affect of turning one half of the vessel bottom up. During the same night the mainmast and several of the spars floated ashore, andwere landed nearly high and dry on the beach. The work of salvaging was continued throughout Tuesday. Portions of the bow of the ship was washed ashore at the mouth of Bream Creek, and a quantity of the cargo drifted onto the beach in the same locality.

Warralily ready for first release ARMSTRONG Creek’s first residential precinct, Warralily, has been given the green light for release. Premier John Brumby and Planning Minister, Justin Madden, have announced the approval of the long-awaited East Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) at a special launch last week at the Warralily site. Armstrong Creek has been in the making for a number of years as a planned response to the state’s population growth. Located between Geelong and Torquay, Armstrong Creek is the key

urban extension to Greater Geelong, becoming home to around 60,000 new residents at its completion in around a decade’s time. The prime location of Warralily – Geelong’s first residential master planned community to be released to market – will deliver the much sought-after coastal lifestyle with the benefits and convenience of city living. The developer of Warralily is the Armstrong Creek Development Corporation, whose director, Mark Casey, said that interest to date shows that this is a highly anticipated place to live.

“Warralily will be Geelong’s first master planned community and all civic, infrastructure and social needs of the new community have been detailed in the structure plan,” Casey said. “The plan responds to people’s desire for a community that delivers liveability and lifestyle. Families will benefit from the convenience of playing fields, parks, shops and schools all interconnected by walking and cycling trails. “This connectedness aims to provide less reliance on cars and create a safe and friendly community environment.”

“Warralily answers calls for urban ‘green space’ with over a third of land devoted to open space combined with plans for water conservation, recycling and drought resistant landscaping.” The first sales launch is planned to take place on Saturday, June 19 – by ballot – to ensure a fair process for all who have been awaiting the opportunity to be part of the new community. For more information visit the Sales Office at 259 Charlemont Road, Connewarre, phone 1300 661 719 or visit www.warralily.com.au

Find your piece of paradise THE SURF Coast and Bellarine Peninsula continue to prove as popular as ever with first home buyers, investors and growing families alike looking to secure the house and land package of their dreams. Whether it be the impending Armstrong Creek release, tried and tested favourites around Torquay, or expanding your horizons on the Bellarine, our region has some of the best ‘land shopping’ on offer anywhere in the state. Here’s a snapshot of some of the great offerings available at present: The Quay to happiness According to Simonds Homes regional manager, Richard Poynder, house and land sales are “travelling very well on the Surf Coast”. “Despite the cooler weather we have still had great foot traffic in our open homes and lots of interest in our house and land packages,” he said. The company’s Quay Estate had just about finished selling its current stage and the group is encouraging people to register interest in the up and coming release of blocks in the Armstrong Creek sub-division. “We have been very busy and expect to be even busier as Armstrong Creek unfolds,” Poynder said. For more information, phone Simonds on 5223 8555. Prime spot for cut cost If you are looking for an affordable land lot in a highly sought after sub-division, then Armstrong Creek is the way to go. Peter Lindeman from RT Edgar said he had been working on a 50-acre block in “an ideal position” within the new sub-division in Torquay Road,

Grovedale. He expected the property would be in high demand once the precinct went on sale. “Armstrong Creek offers buyers a more affordable option for people to get into the market,” he said. “Compared to sub-divisions in areas close by, including Waurn Ponds, Armstrong Creek property prices are set at a more competitive price point.” Property values range from $140,000 to 180,000 and Lindeman expects there to be “a fair bit of demand for land in this area”.

Drysdale dream come true Land lots in Drysdale’s Curlewis Park sub-division are selling fast. According to RPM Real Estate sales manager, Rod Anderson, 70 per cent of the first stage of lots have been snapped up since they went on the market in April. “It has been a good start to the year and a good start to the project,” Anderson said. “The Jetty Road, Drysdale, sub-division is a haven for families and lifestyle, boasting a large central park and many amenities within the estate.” RPM Real Estate is set to release the second stage of lots within Curlewis Park. Blocks range in size from 448square metres to 635square metres and are priced from $142,000 to $166,000. Last chance for beachfront The final three beachfront blocks at Indented Head’s Harvey Estate are up for grabs. The $475,000, 500square metre land blocks are a stone’s throw from the sandy shores of

Indented Head’s Harvey Estate offers outstanding views.

a nice swimming beach in between Portarlington and St Leonards. NH Abbey First National Real Estate managing director, Craig Abbey, said Harvey Estate was aimed at retirees and holiday makers. There are 12 blocks left for sale in the 30 block estate, with prices starting at $240,000. Choose your own style At Blue Coves Homes, the company is able to tailor home design to suit individual needs. For more than a decade Blue Cove has prided itself on putting clients’ needs first, and that unique selling point continues to appeal to growing

numbers. “We are steadily continuing to grow,” said Michael Dahm, of Blue Cove Homes. “The trend of people buying property and building still hasn’t abated. “We build pretty well across the entire state, and it can be sporadic sometimes here and there but the Bellarine Peninsula and Surf Coast have been pretty good. “We custom design houses to meet clients’ needs – where we can sit go and go through what people do and don’t want. “This way you are getting something you have had an input in rather than just buying a design.”

Hotondo on display at Portarlington HOTONDO Homes Ocean Grove has opened a new display home in Portarlington. The Dakota 267 is located at 8 The Rise, Portarlington, and is the first Hotondo Homes display to be built on the Bellarine Peninsula. The home is a 27.8square design featuring four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two spacious living areas. “We’re excited to open our new Dakota 267 display to the public so we can show off all the hard work we’ve put into the construction and presentation of the home over the last six months,’’ Hotondo’s Allie Barker said. “It’s the first Hotondo Homes display to be built on the Bellarine Peninsula and showcases one of our most popular family-friendly designs.’’ The Dakota 267 begins with a formal living room that could be used as a home theatre. Also adjoining the entrance hall is the master bedroom with a double walk-in robe and en suite. In the centre of the home is a spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and family area that opens out to an alfresco area for year round entertaining.

The kitchen is a standout feature of the home due to its generous walk-in pantry and direct access to the attached double garage. Three remaining bedrooms are positioned at the rear of the home off the open-plan area. Each has a built-in robe and easy access to the central bathroom. Hotondo Homes Ocean Grove has house and land packages available at the Arlington Rise estate in Portarlington. To view a large range of floor plans and products visit the sales office and showroom located on the corner of Grubb Road and Sinclair Street, Ocean Grove.

GOLF CLUB

Clifton Springs offers a 5,783m, 18-hole, par 71 championship layout with legend couch fairways and stunning bay views. It is situated on the Bellarine Peninsula, just 20 minutes from Geelong and only 20 minutes from the Queenscliff Sorrento Ferry. The original nine-hole course was constructed in 1888, along with a tourist hotel built to cater for visitors to popular nearby mineral springs. The present day clubhouse with its bars, members’ lounge, bistro and entertainment area, is on the site of that grand old hotel. The first club competition was believed to have been staged on Saturday, 20 November, 1909 – a hundred years ago this year.

Bunkering is a feature of the design, with sand blending seamlessly into the seaside backdrop. Some holes on the back nine border the foreshore reserve and crashing surf of Bass Strait. Look especially forward to the 14th hole, a par four laid out alongside sand dunes, with views along the coastline to Barwon Heads.

Signature Hole - the 16th The final par 3, the 16th is a picturesque hole of 125m that is best played from the upper left tee to fully appreciate the hole. Played across a valley to an elevated and very small green a well judged shot is required. Anything landing on the front of, or short of the green will roll well back down the hill. There is a very deep bunker on the left of the green from where 3 is very rarely made. The bunker on the right is not much better and avoid being long at all costs. Once on the green, putting is not difficult, but beware of the speed putting from the back of the green.

Enjoy the beautiful views from our magnificent clubhouse while you enjoy a cappuccino or glass of red wine.

CLUBHOUSE FACILITIES

Signature Hole - the 18th Clifton Springs has one of the most picturesque settings of any golf courses in Victoria. The majority of holes and the clubhouse itself have wonderful views of Port Phillip Bay, the Geelong shipping channel, Avalon Airport and the You Yangs. So it’s no wonder the 330m, par four, dog-leg-left 18th hole is regarded by most players as the club’s signature hole. From the tee, players can, before addressing their ball, have a cliff-top view of the beach below and the remains of an old jetty used in the late 19th century by paddle steamers bringing tourists from Melbourne to the nearby mineral springs. Most players aim to put their drive up to the corner, clear of an old blue spruce tree, to open up the green for their second shot. The legend couch fairway into the green is lined with trees, including a very large Moreton Bay Fig that overhangs the green and which was probably planted back in the days when the grand old Clifton Springs Hotel stood near where today’s modern clubhouse is situated. It’s a hole that provides a great finish for a championship golf course that hosted some of Australia’s top touring professionals in 15 pro ams since 1993.

Clifton Springs Golf Club is a picturesque layout that borders Corio Bay with views to Geelong and the You Yangs. The course is located a mere one hours drive from the West Gate Bridge near Drysdale on the Bellarine Peninsula. The Clifton Springs Golf Club is one of the best in the Bellarine region with stunning views across the bay. Being central to Port Phillip Heads and Geelong in the middle of the Bellarine wine district and with easy access to both surf and bay beaches the club offers the perfect day or weekend visit. The dining area is open seven days a week for snacks and à la carte lunch and dinner. The Clifton Springs Golf Club course is a par 71 of 5,783 metres for men and par 72 of 5,213 metres for women. The Club has an onsite Pro Shop, dining area looking out over the bay and a superb golf course which is available for both visiting AGU members to enter in competitions and casual green fee players.

Lonsdale Golf Club MEET THE PRO

SIGNATURE HOLE

Sean Charleston

Signature Hole - the 12th

Lonsdale enthusiastically welcomes Sean Charleston as its new Director of Golf and Club Professional. Sean spent the last two and a half years at the Portland Golf Club. Prior to that he was Head Professional at the highly rated Moonah Links and has a total of 11 years in the golf industry. Sean is very well credentialed in understanding the needs of golfers and takes great pride in delivering proven golf teaching programs. In his own words “ My passion is to run a successful professional golf business, together with the development of training programs and events that promote golf course growth. “ Sean has taken over control of the newly completed Pro Shop and guide Members and visiting golfers in equipping themselves to suit their particular circumstances. This is in addition to organising the provision of golf tuition at all levels of playing –men, women and juniors. There will be expanded golf playing opportunities including twilight and early bird golf.

Lonsdale Golf Club is made up of some picturesque holes overlooking Lake Victoria. It is set amongst the subtly undulating terrain of Point Lonsdale. A hole that perfectly defines the character of Lonsdale is the 12th. Not a very long hole but deceptively tricky. The hole is 312m for the men and 302m for the women and it begins with a raised teeing area that overlooks the lake and the green. The top of the hill is 150m from the tee and shots that land past this area will gain another 50m. It pays to aim up the left, as once over the hill, the ball will run to the right, making the player hit over the bunker that protects the elevated green. The design of the hole gives the player the option of attacking the green or playing short and left of the green for a straightforward pitch shot. This hole is a good test of one’s golfing ability and impressive to look at.

FACILITIES Lonsdale Golf Club is a highly regarded, 18-hole sand belt golf course with a varied layout, situated on beautiful Lake Victoria in Point Lonsdale on the Bellarine Peninsula. Located at the entrance to Port Phillip Bay, the club is an easy 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne and 25 minutes from Geelong and close to a variety of accommodation, dining and tourist attractions. The course is a par 71 of 5,200m for men and a par 72 of 5,200m for women. The club offers an on-course teaching professional, well-stocked pro shop and three practice areas. The course continues to receive high praise from Members and visitors alike and is set for future improvement. New membership enquiries are very welcome, as are visitors and green fee players. The traditional clubhouse possesses a welcoming atmosphere, excellent bar and dining facilities providing before and after golf snacks, lunches and a la carte dining for members and visitors alike.

SIGNATURE HOLE

FACILITIES

Signature Hole - the 17th

(155 metres Mens, 115 metres Ladies, Par 3) The signature hole at the Portarlington Golf Club would have to be the 17th hole, a beautiful little par 3 with a water carry and a green, with three bunkers surrounding it, waiting for the off-line tee shot. The teeing area is slightly elevated compared to the green and is set amongst the pine trees on the right-hand side. This makes judging the wind difficult at times, as the trees provide a wind shield. The water carry on this hole is around 100-110m and for the shorter hitter, it will come into play. The green sits diagonally to the player from right to left and back to front. Two of the bunkers are located on the right-hand side and short of the green, while one large bunker runs along the front and lefthand side of the green and will catch any shot pulled to the left. The ideal tee shot for the player who can carry the ball all the way to the green is to aim at the centre of the green and let the slope of the green take the ball to the flag (particularly if the pin is back left). For the shorter hitter, there is a gap at the front of the green, which will allow you to run the ball between the bunkers, but ensure you are accurate. Once on the green, putting can be difficult from above the hole. It’s a great little par 3 which can bring a birdie or par, but also undo a good round. Remember, picking the wind direction is crucial for club selection.

Portarlington Golf Course is an excellent, 18-hole course on Victoria’s magnificent Bellarine Peninsula. It is a treelined, challenging course with a wonderful variety of golf holes, pure putting surfaces and excellent year round conditioning. There’s a Bistro that is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. Bookings are recommended.

With his affable, easygoing personality, Darrell makes golf lessons pleasurable for golfers of all levels.

FACILITIES

Signature Hole - the 11th The Sands Torquay is designed by Australia Open champion Stuart Appleby. The 18 hole links style course intriguingly winds its way through the land behind the sand dunes of Zeally Bay, taking full advantage of the natural beauty of its Surf Coast location. The undulating nature of the course with multiple tees to suit all golfing levels is a testament to Stuart’s commitment and passion. The long 11th hole embodies all of the natural elements of the Torquay site – sand dunes, tall native grasses, Moonah trees and rocky outcrops. Thankfully the wind is normally at the golfer’s back, so a well hit tee shot should clear the small Moonah trees on the left centre of the fairway. The fairway splits around a natural slope with four embedded bunkers before rising to a well protected green, gently tucked into the dunes landscape. If golfers keep their focus here and not become distracted by the natural beauty of the hole, par is possible.

Set amidst the natural beauty of the stunning Surf Coast, Peppers The Sands Resort comprises 112 luxurious studios & suites all with private balconies and featuring LCD TV with mini hi fi system CD/DVD, selected Foxtel channels, internet connectivity and 24 hour room service. As our guest, we invite you to enjoy the Health Club including 25m heated indoor lap pool, cardio theatre & gym, tennis courts & the famous beaches of Torquay - just a few steps away. An idyllic destination to retreat and relax, the resort is home to award-winning restaurant & bar ‘hanners’, open seven days for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Offering a unique dining experience reflecting the rich diversity of this beautiful peninsula renowned for its first class food sources and premium wines, enjoy a la carte dining, indulge in a stone-baked gourmet pizza or a share plate of local delicacies in our alfresco dining area or on the terrace while you take in sensational views across the golf course through to the sands dunes of Zeally Bay.

SIGNATURE HOLE Signature Hole - the 7th Hole

(165 metres Par 3) The Beach Course The Beach Course offers a collection of some of the finest par 3 holes in the world. The Beach Course is currently ranked 9th Best Public Access Course in Australia (The Golf Course Guide 2010). The signature hole is the 7th (165m par 3). Whilst making your way up a sand dune to this enclosed tee, the golfer faces one of the most stunning views of the golf course over Murtnaghurt Lagoon. It is easy to become transfixed in the surrounding scenery, but the 7th requires much greater respect. This magnificently shaped green represents all the wonderful aspects of links golf. To the left of the hole, a small dune sits with two bunkers. On the right-hand side of the dune, a large grassed area feeds all balls striking its vicinity onto the green. At the front of the green, a large, tightly-cut apron allows the golfer to bounce the ball onto the firm putting surface. The right-hand side of the green is protected by many bunkers, including a large deep bunker that protects the back of the green from any shots the slightest bit over clubbed. Come and experience it for yourself.

FACILITIES Set on the stunning Bellarine Peninsula, Thirteenth Beach is a 36-hole golf and residential complex, only 20 minutes from Geelong. Drop into The Clubhouse and Golf Shop.

SIGNATURE HOLE Signature Hole - the 17th (118 metres Par 3) This tee has the best views of any in the district. A short iron or pitch to a long narrow green with deep bunkers on both sides. It is very possible to zig zag this green with bunker shots until your round is ruined and acceptance speeches forgotten as your playing partners impatiently wait on the 18th tee.

An unhealthy place to work? ALARMING new figures from WorkSafe, Victoria’s WorkHealth programme, show that local Surf Coast workers need to spend more time catching waves and less time at the local fast food shop. The state government initiative, designed to address chronic disease risks among Victorian workers, has delivered health checks to more than 150,000 workers since launching last year. Results from the first 100,000 checks show it wouldn’t hurt most Victorians to add a piece of fruit to the lunch box. WorkHealth spokesperson, Paul Fallon, said that results of WorkHealth checks found that 34 per cent of Surf Coast workers had a high or very high risk of developing type 2 diabetes or cardiovascular disease, with men being at a much higher risk than women.

The results also showed that of those Surf Coast workers who have already had the checks completed: • 92% weren’t getting enough fruit and vegetables in their diet • 60% weren’t getting enough exercise • 16% smoked; and • 50% drank at risky levels. “These results show how important it is for Surf Coast workplaces to get the health checks done firstly and, secondly, put in place programmes to help their workers address health and well being issues,â€? Fallon said. “The good news is that Surf Coast workers do have the highest rates of physical activity in the state, but the bad news is that based on figures so far, too many are drinking at risky levels.

The WorkHealth checks are a free, quick and confidential way for Victorian workers to get instant feedback on their blood pressure, cholesterol, and any risk of heart disease and diabetes. “Already, some Surf Coast workplaces have programmes in place like quit smoking and walking groups, and supporting active transport such as cycling to work by providing showers and storage facilities,� Fallon said. “We’d like to see more local businesses follow their lead.� Fallon encouraged other Surf Coast employers and workers to visit the WorkHealth website, sign up and get active. For more information, visit www.workhealth. vic.gov.au or call the WorkSafe Advisory service on 1800 136 089 to receive an application pack.

Occasional care funding boost SEVEN community hubs throughout the Surf Coast and Bellarine will benefit from an increase in state government funding for occasional child care programmes. Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development, Maxine Morand, announced last week the government would increase funding by $1million 2010-11 to ensure the Take-a-Break occasional child care programme could continue. Centres throughout the region who will benefit are Anglesea Community House, Deans Marsh Community Cottage, Apollo Bay Children’s Centre, Drysdale’s SpringDale Neighbourhood Centre, Torquay Children’s Services Hub, Lorne

Figtree Community House and Winchelsea House. “This programme provides great support to parents and also provides important early learning and social experiences for children aged 0-six years,� Morand said. “This additional funding will mean the more than 220 children’s centres offering the Take-aBreak child care programme will continue being funded.� Morand said previously this programme had been jointly funded with the federal government. “We recognise how important these services are to families and with that funding concluding, we wanted to make sure these programs could

continue to be offered,� she said. “The Take-a-Break programme allows parents and guardians to participate in activities including study, recreational classes, attending appointments, shopping and voluntary community activities while their children socialise and interact with other children in an early learning environment. “Any parent knows that when you have young children sometimes it can be difficult to do simple things like attend a doctor appointment, or do banking or shopping – Take-a-Break provides short term occasional care that makes these tasks much simpler.

Call to expand screening programme RESEARCH released last week shows annual bowel cancer treatment costs will have increased four-fold to $1billion over the next decade, strengthening the economic case for expanding the Government’s National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme. With this week Bowel Cancer Awareness Week, the study by researchers from the Royal Melbourne Hospital and BioGrid Australia, is the first to combine Australian screening data with treatment costs and survival rates, providing new evidence of

the programme’s economic and social benefits. “New high-cost drugs have seen the cost of treating advanced bowel cancers soar over the past decade by around $50,000 per case for advanced cancers,� said Dr Sumitra Ananda, co-author of the study and an oncologist at Royal Melbourne Hospital. “Yet if the National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme was fully implemented, thousands of bowel cancers could be detected before they advance and require high-cost treatments.�

Chair of Cancer Council Australia’s National Bowel Cancer Screening Committee, Alison Peipers, said the programme was only available as a one-off test for people turning 50, 55 and 65, instead of to all Australians aged 50 and over every two years. Yet, even though partially implemented, it is already picking up more than double the rate of early-stage cancers than those identified through symptoms.

Anglesea set for netball upgrade BY ELEANOR WOODS

ANGLESEA’S netball facilities have been given the green light for a $120,000 upgrade. Anglesea Netball Club president, Denise Munro, was ecstatic the group’s application for funding through the Surf Coast Shire had been approved. “We are so pleased. One end of the courts is sinking. We really need this,” she said. The announcement was made in a ceremony at the courts, at Ellimatta Reserve, last Wednesday. Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney, confirmed the government would contribute $60,000 toward the upgrade, which would help bring the facility “up to speed”. “We want to make it easier for all the players, Libby Coker, Gayle Tierney and Anglesea Netball Club president, Denise Munro, at the announcement of coaches, umpires, and supporters to stay in the game funding for the facility.

they love, while encouraging the community to lead healthy and active lifestyles,” Tierney said. The Surf Coast Shire committed $40,000 toward the project and the remaining $20,000 was raised by fundraising within the Anglesea netball community. While shooting goals at the netball courts, Surf Coast Shire Mayor, Libby Coker, said the development was going to be “just great”. The works, which will begin when the current netball season ends in September, will redevelop one existing court and construct a new court, with competition-standard lighting, where the current car park is situated. The group was pleased the newly developed facility would enable players and spectators to enjoy the sport more safely.

You can have your cake and eat it

EVERY day we are confronted with delicious (and naughty) foods everywhere we look. We are bombarded with temptations like chocolate bars on the impulse stands at the supermarket, cake displays at our local cafe, or even desserts on primetime TV with shows like MasterChef. There is so much food in our faces, so to speak, and if you are trying to watch your weight this food overload makes it that much harder. Like most of us, I too love a glass of wine, chocolate and the

occasional slice of cake and I believe we shouldn’t deprive ourselves of a treat every now and then. The more we deprive ourselves from foods we love, the more likely we are to ‘crack’ and then go off the rails completely. Where the problem lies is that when we do eat these treats we eat far too many of them and we don’t do enough activity or exercise to burn them off. If you can understand the effect these extra treats have on your body in terms of overall calorie intake

and what you need to do to burn them off, you can indulge a little. The best way to manage eating these foods is to pay respect to them and regard them as rewards. A reward could be because you have achieved your 30 minutes of exercise for the day, or you have eaten really well for most of the week or even better – a combination of both! This, however, doesn’t mean you can indulge in a packet of Tim Tams just because you did a

30-minute walk! Here is an example of a few treats and what you need to doto burn them off: 3x Tim Tams = 60 minutes of walking Burger Rings (50g) = A 4-km run in 24 minutes Slice of mud cake = 22 minutes of cycling @ 20-25kph So, if you can eat well most of the time and exercise everyday, you can have your cake and eat it!

SURF COAST SOCCER world cup

Tuesday 8 June 2010

world cup 2010

World Cup comes to the Surf Coast BY DONNA VAN STADEN IT IS a big year for soccer and the world’s biggest sporting event, the Soccer World Cup, is just a few days away. But not all eyes are on South Africa, where the main event is taking place. Young soccer players from around the Surf Coast are having a World Cup event of their own this month in Torquay.

SCHOOLS COMPETE

The Torquay Stockfeeds Schools World Cup involves primary schools from across the Surf Coast, competing against one another for the title of School World Cup champion. It is being sponsored by Torquay Stockfeeds, the 2010 Platinum sponsor of the Surf Coast Football Club (SCFC), which has its home ground at The Quay in Torquay. The event is now in its fifth year, and has been replicated across Victoria and the Football Federation of Victoria has adopted it as an example of how to successfully promote the game of soccer among primary school children. It certainly seems to have worked on the Surf Coast, where the Surf Coast Football Club is the fastest growing sports club in the region and a regional powerhouse when it comes to both boys and girls soccer. Aspiring soccer players as young as four years old can be seen kicking the ball around the pitch at The Quay on Saturday mornings, kitted out in their tiny soccer boots. They play in the Small-Sided Games programme run by club volunteers. From the age of six or seven, the children graduate

to the academy programme to focus on their ball skills before joining a junior boys or girls team and playing matches in the FFV leagues at a local level from the age of 11 or 12.

BIGGER AND BETTER

This year, the Torquay Stockeeds School World Cup is going to be even bigger and better, and it will be played at The Quay Reserve during the World Cup in South Africa. The cup will feature two events: One will be for the smaller schools (Winchelsea, Bellbrae, Airey’s Inlet, Anglesea, Moriac and Mt Duneed) and the other will be for the bigger Torquay schools – Torquay College and St Therese Primary. The format will be a round robin, with every team getting four matches on the day, followed by the big battle between the grand finalists. Prizes are awarded for effort as well as victory, so everyone can be a winner on the day. Last year, more than 430 children participated in the Schools World Cup event in Victoria, which had competition streams for grade 3/4 girls, grade 3/4 boys, grade 5/6 girls and grade 5/6 boys. This year, more than 600 children are expected to participate in the Surf Coast event alone and there is likely to be tough competition between the various local schools. A number of the finals in previous years have been decided by penalty shootouts, which have resulted in wilder celebrations and more devastation than witnessed at soccer pitches after some high profile international games! For more information, visit www.surfcoastfc. com.au

A CLUB REACHING FOR THE SKY A SOCCEROO or Matilda from the Surf Coast – that’s the aim of Surf Coast Football Club for 2018. Surf Coast FC president, Joe Taylor, said it is now quite possible Australia will host the 2018 or 2022 World Cup, with Torquay a training base for a world Cup nation, and Kardinia Park hosting World Cup games, including a quarter final. “It should be our aim, as well as growing participation generally, to have either a Socceroo or a Matilda from the Surf Coast by then,” Taylor said. “How good would it be to have a Socceroo or Matilda from our town in the Australian team, with a World Cup game played locally? “We’d have to make them mayor and hand

over the keys to Torquay to them! “By that stage we should have a massive junior base; we are aiming to have the best coaching set-up in the region… that should be our aim.” Already, in the few short years of its existence, Surf Coast FC has produced dozens of representative level players, and most recently two Surf Coast players represented Victoria at junior girls level, both kicking goals in a national tournament. Last year, after just two seasons in the State Leagues, the Surf Coast men’s team was promoted to the Provisional 2 League. Eight weeks into the season Surf Coast is now on top of the new Provisional 2 League. Surf Coast FC is now a juggernaut being watched by soccer fans around Victoria.

Soccer club gets first platinum sponsor SURF Coast Football Club has secured its first platinum sponsor this year, thanks to the generosity and support of Torquay Stockfeeds and Pet Supplies. The local business is run and staffed by a fantastic family, who provide great products and services and love the game of soccer. Brian and Jill Pocklington, the owners of Torquay Stockfeeds and Surfcoast Pet Supplies, are located at 180 Grossmans Road, Torquay and provide a wide range of pet, stock and garden products. Brian and Jill’s grown-up children, Michael and Hayley, both play for the Surf Coast Football Club. Michael coached the Surf Coast Women’s Blue team to victory in the Geelong Region Football

Association championships last year and is playing Sunday soccer for the men this year. He is also an official with the Football Federation of Victoria. Hayley is a defender for the women’s team this year, having swapped her netball for a soccer ball. The family is so devoted to the game of soccer that they have even trained their dogs how to play. Both the dogs are expert (ball) dribblers, with Misty more of a defender and Roxy the striker. Their canine ball handling skills are truly exceptional. Torquay Stockfeeds and Surf Coast Pet Supplies have been a valued sponsor of the Surf Coast FC for three years running.

SURF COAST SOCCER world cup

Tuesday 8 June 2010

world cup 2010

Melting pot of cultures Surf Coast Football Club celebrates its 10th anniversary this year BY RICHARD DUNN IT WAS 2001 and a local man named Michael Martinez had an itch. He wondered whether anybody on the Surf Coast would be interested in playing soccer, so he put a small advert in the local paper and, as Paul Kelly put it, “from little things, big things grow”. A couple of families responded, a committee was formed, there was a few meetings and it was decided an under 11 team could be fielded. Early in that same season, it grew into two teams. Today, some of those very first players still play for the Surf Coast FC, as it rockets up the Football Federation of Victoria (FFV) leagues. A number of the original committee members and parents are also still involved and are stalwarts of the club, which has become the largest and fastest growing soccer club in the Geelong region. The early days were fantastic. There were many misty mornings on the Bellbrae Oval – the club’s first home – with kangaroos making their way down for a dawn munch, pausing to stare at this funny, round ball game. Others in the local sporting community looked on suspiciously, wondering what all the excitement was about. The area was too small, the surface was muddy, grass was scarce and there was a cricket pitch covered with dirt in the middle of the oval, but it didn’t stop us. First there were mixed teams; then there was an allgirls team; then came a men’s team and soon afterwards, the first women’s team was formed. After that, soccer on the Surf Coast took off in a big way.

A CLUB OF NATIONS

The established Geelong soccer clubs treated us as an oddity, presuming we were just a passing phase. We were different; not based around any one ethnic group, we were a club for everyone, a melting pot of cultures and nationalities. Our senior men are coached by a Maltese national. We have an Irishman and an American in our men’s teams. Our senior women are coached by a pucker Englishman from the Midlands, and our senior women’s team includes a Canadian and a South African. Our man in charge of the junior coaching is from the great soccer playing nation of Brazil and we have a Greek vice-president who whips up delicious souvlakis in the canteen every Thursday night. These are just some of the nationalities represented.

BRIGHT FUTURE AHEAD

The club moved on from the Bellbrae Oval to Bob Petit Reserve and then to The Quay. Our next move will be to our permanent home at the new civic and community precinct in Torquay once it is built. We encourage community participation and team spirit and we rely on the support of parents and players to keep the club running smoothly. We are now a powerhouse on the girls’ and women’s regional soccer scene. Our women and under 16 girls were league champions last year and our senior men are currently sitting at the top of the ladder in their FFV league. We have produced dozens of regional and state players. No matter what your ability, your gender, your age or your cultural background, we have a place for you at the Surf Coast FC. Come and join us!

Jade is a soccer gem JADE Feakes is a gem on the local junior soccer scene. The young Torquay College student was selected to represent Victoria this year and recently returned from playing soccer in Canberra. Jade plays for the under 14 Surf Coast Blues team every Saturday. She was spotted during the Champions Summer League late last year and was invited to try out for the Victorian Country under 13 representative team, which involved a weekend camp in Bendigo. Out of 30 girls who participated in the camp, Jade was among the final 16 chosen for the under 13 Victorian Country representatvie team. The team played in Canberra over four days in April, playing two matches every day. They stayed over at the Australian Institute of Sport, which was a highlight of their trip. Vic Country came fourth out of six teams in their pool, recording wins over New South Wales Metro 2 and the Northern Territory. Jade now trains twice a week with the Barwon Sports Academy, a player development programme run throughout Melbourne and different regions in Victoria.

Junior players train under the floodlights at The Quay on a Thursday night.

The two Surf Coast Football Club’s Under 14 teams battled it out at The Quay recently, with the match ending in a draw.

SURF TO CITY EXCAVATIONS THE OLD saying that no job is too big or too small certainly rings true with Surf To City Excavations. The recently established business is able to cater for any job – from backyard renovations and do-it-yourself projects to bigger jobs such as inground pool excavations and preparation work for tradesmen.

JUNE 08 - JUNE 14 2010 The winds of change are blowing through your domestic zone, courtesy of adventurous Jupiter and restless Uranus. You could extend your family via a wedding or baby; move house, renovate your present dwelling or plan a trip to far-away places. Sunday is all about love and respect, as you get real about relationship responsibilities.

With Jupiter and Uranus joining up in your sign, there’s an extra bounce in your step and a glint in your eye, as you initiate innovative projects with passion and enthusiasm. It’s time to be the real you! Be inspired by birthday great Judy Garland “Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”

Get ready for a week of mystery, where you’re surrounded by innuendo and intrigue. What others say won’t necessarily be what they mean, so make sure you read between the lines to uncover what’s really going on. Lucky Jupiter and unpredictable Uranus give your career one gigantic boost, and success is waiting where you least expect it.

With Jupiter and Uranus in your relationship zone, the course of true love won’t run smoothly. If you’re attached, adjustments must be made (on both sides) and you’ll need to be honest about your concerns and expectations. For those who are looking for love, it’s time to face the reality that Mr/Miss Absolutely Perfect doesn’t actually exist!

Show me the money! You’ve been talking about saving for something big (like a car, holiday or home deposit) for a long while but now, with the New Moon in your finance zone, you need to put your money where your mouth is and actually start saving. It’s time for luxury-loving Bulls to get the hang of balancing the budget.

Lions can be vain creatures. There’s nothing wrong with looking gorgeous, but don’t make it your main focus. Look within (yourself and others) to find real beauty. Reflect on the words of Michael J. Fox (born on June 9) “One of the things I’ve learned is that vanity is worthless. Whatever you look like is such a complete and utter waste of time.”

Don’t get too set in your ways Scorpio – Jupiter and Uranus are conspiring to shake up your daily routine. And, with the New Moon in your intrigue zone, no secret is safe from you this week as you uncover clues and pick up on cues that others miss. Be careful what you unearth though, as it may stir up issues from your own less-than-perfect past.

You’re in the mood to express yourself and expand your local contacts, as Uranus (your ruling planet) joins up with Jupiter in your communication zone. Saturday’s New Moon stimulates your entertainment sector, so it’s time to clear your throat, polish your maracas, and find yourself a captive audience as you perform and party like a pro!

Mercury makes a multitude of aspects this week (plus there’s a New Moon in your sign) so expect a busy, bustling and bamboozling time. Lightning flashes of inspiration will strike, as you discover exciting new ways to convey old ideas. Make sure you communicate clearly though, or there’ll be some crazy mix-ups along the way!

Have you been feeling tired and run-down? Mighty Mars marches into your sign this week so your mojo is set to return in spades. From now until July 30 is the time to get motivated as you initiate projects and put ambitious plans into action (especially at work). You’re uncharacteristically impatient but make sure you’ve done your homework first.

Have you been feeling bored and uninspired? Hold onto your seat Sagittarius! Your life is set to expand in exciting ways, especially in areas involving romance, children, friends, hobbies or sport. Saturday’s New Moon activates your relationship zone so your partner will act as a mirror, reflecting back your strengths – and weaknesses.

You need to be clear and straightforward in your dealings with others, especially mid-week. Don’t waste precious Pisces time pussyfooting around. Saturday’s New Moon is a time of magical beginnings. Family and home life are the areas where you need to make some overdue changes and adjustments – the sooner the better.

Competition results PORTARLINGTON ladies recently won the coveted SWDLGA Division One Pennant flag for the first time ever. The team was lead by captain, Angela Foott, with Rebecca Waldron, Jeanette Barclay, Sharon Antonio and Jenny Edmanson – more about Jenny later. The well earned celebrations have continued from the last night of pennant, with a cabaret night, through to an end of season overseas trip.*Rumour also has it the clubhouse has the theme song still playing on repeat through the sound system. The division one ladies team has followed on from terrific results from our men of late. The veteran men came home with the GDGVA division one flag – led by Laurie Walsh with Peter Taylor, Dereck Wright, Tom Scarff, Frank Wheat, Brian Hazell and Will Pressnell. The only disappointment was that they had to beat the “other” Portarlington team to win! Peter Taylor, Tony Meagher and Laurie Walsh also won the Geelong Advertiser Cup while Brian Grubb, Jim Bibby, John Rowe and Tom Scarff won the Curlewis Plate. The juniors weren’t to be outdone either, with the boys

bringing home the Trevennan Cup. Congratulations to the Sauni brothers, Sam Beeston, Matt Wilson (Captain), Elijah Wall, Ryan Cairney and Haydn Garner. Upcoming Events Charity Day: Monday, June 28 Pair up with your favourite golf mate and participate in this 4BBB Stableford Event. Proceeds go to Bellarine Police Commumnity Support Register. There are plenty of trophies to be won and there’ll be a trading table and raffles on the day. Call the vlub for more information or visit the website: www. portarlingtongolf.com.au Player Profile: Jenny Edmanson • 2010 Club Lady Champion • SWDLGA Champion • SWDLGA Country Week representative team – previous three years • Victorian Under 18 Javelin Champion – not just handy with a driver!

It’s been a long time coming, but after three years as a bridesmaid, Jenny Edmanson has deservedly come through to win the ladies championship. Jenny also participated in the division one team, which added to the excitement of the week and in much to Jenny’s delight, her favourite football team Geelong defeated Collingwood. It has been a week that Jenny will never forget. When Jenny is not playing golf, which is generally only on Saturday outside of pennant season, she is known around town for her affable nature at the post office, where she alongside husband Rick own and work full time. Jenny and Rick have two children Max and Caitlin. Jenny is also on the council at their primary school, on the Portarlington Market Committee and also helps out Max and Caitlin and other juniors with Sunday morning golf clinics at the Club. How anyone can perform all these tasks and win a championship is phenomenal. What is more amazing, is the friendly manner in which Jenny manages it. Congratulations Jenny, a true champion. *Sorrento (Perhaps Tahiti next year)

Creating healthy communities SPORTING CLUBS throughout the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula are set to become the healthiest in the country. A complete overhaul of the issues of food, alcohol, violence, injury prevention and other aspects which make up a healthy sporting environment will be examined during a two-and-a-half-year programme. In an Australian first, the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth) has teamed up with the Geelong area regional sports assembly, Leisure Networks, to pilot the $2million programme. It is the first time that sports clubs across a region of Australia are looking at everything they do and will be evaluated on their aim of becoming healthier places, including more than just physical activity.

The programme will involve more than 100 sporting clubs selected from about 1,000 clubs in the council areas of City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast, Colac Otway, Queenscliffe and southern parts of Golden Plains. “Clubs will be required to meet standards relating to the responsible use of alcohol, healthy eating, reduced tobacco use, protection from harmful effects of UV, creating a safe and inclusive environment for women and reducing race-based discrimination,” VicHealth chief executive officer, Todd Harper, said. “Some of these include either selling spirits at 20 per cent higher than 2009 prices, or serving only drinks with an alcohol content of less than 3 per

cent, and replacing at least three ‘red’ foods with at least three ‘green’ options.” Sponsorship reforms? The initiative follows a recent VicHealth survey which shows that more than four out of five Victorians would like to see an end to junk food and alcohol sponsorship in all local sports clubs, provided there are funds to replace lost revenue. “It’s very important to realise that an overwhelming majority of Victorians support moving away from junk food and alcohol sponsorship of community sports,” Harper said. “This new programme isn’t about banning alcohol and junk food from all community clubs. It’s about supporting sports clubs to identify parts of their culture they can improve, so that they are healthy, safe, welcoming places without too much emphasis on booze and fast food. “The lessons we learn through this programme will have future implications for local sports clubs across Victoria and the rest of Australia.” Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, applauded the programme, which will follow up on already successfully implemented initiatives. “In Geelong we are already seeing positive outcomes from the Good Sports programme that helps sporting clubs manage alcohol responsibly and reduce alcohol-related problems such as binge and underage drinking,” she said. “This new programme will help community sports clubs identify areas they can improve so they

continue to be healthy, safe, welcoming places for the whole community. “We know that the main reasons more than 4.7million Australians participate in community sport are to be social, fit and healthy and it is fantastic that community sports clubs are taking the lead in this program.” Building healthier communities Chief executive officer of Leisure Networks, Rob McHenry said there is overwhelming interest from community clubs to be healthier places. “There is already a lot of interest in this project from community clubs who recognise that a healthy club is a happy club and this translates into more participation and members,” he said. “The bottom line is that if community clubs are all-round healthy places, there will be more people being physically active, with a healthier population for the region. “We have around 1,000 clubs covering 86 different sports in our region and we are excited this programme is set to be a model for Australia. “Clubs will have the chance to register their interest in joining the programme through invitations and information sessions in August and September. “A major part of the programme includes evaluation to work out the best ways of making sure community clubs can become as healthy as possible. “The evaluation will guide future policy and investment in healthy club development by VicHealth and other government agencies.”

Pictured at last week’s announcement were (from left) Member for South Barwon, Michael Crutchfield, chief executive officer of Leisure Networks, Rob McHenry, VicHealth boss, Todd Harper, Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, and former AFL/VFL premiership coach Tommy Hafey.

Come on you experienced bowlers; put your names down to play and encourage our limited members with your enthusiasm and experience in a casual, fun game. The more the merrier! Queen’s Birthday Weekend – mixed bowls (in neat casual attire) will be held on both Saturday, June 12 and Monday, June 14, commencing at 12.30pm. All visiting bowlers are cordially invited to play on these days. Please register your name with the club by 9.30am on the day of play, either in person or by telephoning 5263 1229.

WITH winter officially upon us, we shouldn’t have been suprised at the cold and wet conditions at the weekend. Although the men were unsuccessful, the women and girls were unaffected by the conditions, although the same could not be said for the spectators. Men, FFV Provisional 2: Surf Coast (2) v Collingwood City (3) Surf Coast’s seven-game match winning streak came to an abrupt end in muddy conditions. At the same time as we were denied the holy grail of news headlines: Surf Coast beats Collingwood. Despite being two goals up early in the first half, Surf Coast lost its way, with the game level at half time and an eventual 3-2 loss. Women: Surf Coast (9) v Barwon Heads (2) The Surf Coast Women are on a roll, having clinched their third victory in as many weeks. Playing in soaking rain at home at The Quay, they far outclassed their Barwon Heads opponents,

who are currently languishing at the bottom of the ladder. U16 Girls: Surf Coast (5) v Breakwater (0) Surf Coast under 16s girls played their best game of the year with a great overall team performance resulting in a 5-0 win and consolidation of their top of the table ranking. Surf Coast moved the ball backwards, forwards and across their backline and midfield, probing for attacking opportunities and holding a great team structure. U14 Girls: Surf Coast Yellow (1) v Surf Coast Blue (1) The two under 14 girls teams drew for the second time this season in a competitive encounter played in icy, wet and testing conditions at Connewarre. It was another great, evenly matched game for the under 14s. The club can be proud of the amount of upcoming talent displayed among this group of girls.

My Big Catch proudly sponsored by:

Apollo Bay tuna are being caught between Blanket Bay and Cape Otway, with some reports of them as close in 5-10km, with sizes varying from up to 18-20kg and some as large as 30kg. Recreational fishing peak body The following extract has been recorded from the Budget Estimates Hearings with the Fisheries section of the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) last week. Senator Colebeck: I have a couple of quick questions on recreational fishing. Does DAFF believe there is any value in a peak body for recreational fishers? Mr Thompson: A peak body for all organisations would be one of the useful mechanisms for

engaging with state bodies; so, yes, there is value in a peak body. Senator Colebeck: Is the department still in discussions with Recfish with respect to their potential future? Mr Thompson: We have discussions from time to time with Recfish about what their future might be or what the representation of the rec fishing sector might be, yes. Senator Colbeck: Can you tell me whether the minister has responded to their letter of 22 February seeking some assistance with support for Recfish as an organisation? Mr Pittar: I do not know the answer to that directly. I need to take that on notice. If I can take that on notice, that would be helpful. Senator Colebeck: Is the department aware of the minister saying to the industry that the government is not interested in funding somebody that might lobby against them? Mr Thompson: Yes, Senator. Senator Colebeck is the Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry; Mr Thompson is the executive director of Sustainable Resource Management; Mr Pittar is head of the federal fisheries policy unit in DAFF. Recfish is normally an advisory group that provides feedback and acts as a liaison between recreational fishermen and the government. There are currently many recreational fishing issues which require a national presence and perspective, one such upcoming issue is the Commonwealth Marine Bioregional Planning consultation covering vast stretches of coastline and which will involve more bans on fishing using ‘sanctuary zones’ around Australia.

THE OPERATIVE word at the moment is tuna, tuna and more tuna. Tuna are being caught at Portland, Port Fairy and Apollo Bay at present. At Portland, school tuna up to 10-15 kilograms are being caught in close near Cape Bridge Water. Larger tuna, some up to 25kg, are being caught about 50 kilometres out off the shelf at Port Fairy within the 20-25km mark out from the entrance, where tuna up to 50-60kg are supposedly being taken. According to some reports, if you head towards Julia Percy Island, 22 kilometres south west of Port Fairy, then proceed another 20km out from the island, big tuna up to 80-90kg are being reported in this area.

The pitch was probably the best place to be on the weekend as wet, coldy and windy conditions prevailed for the game between the Under 14 Surf Coast Yellow and Surf Coast Blue teams at Connewarre. In an entertaining encounter in tough conditions, the teams drew for the second time in as many meetings this season.
