Surf Coast scoops the pool at state awards with Bells Beach named Victoria’s best

BY NATHAN HALE THE SURF Coast Shire has received a huge tourism boost with Bells Beach taking out the State’s top prize at last week’s Keep Australia Beautiful Victoria Awards. As competition for the tourist dollar continues to grow, the naming of the iconic Bells as the State’s cleanest beach is set to thrust the shire back into the tourism spotlight. In a memorable night for the region, the shire took home four awards – sharing one with the Bells Beach Advisory Committee – to lead the way at the gala function. Apart from winning the top award, other awards included:

Surf Forecast

• Community action: Council and Bells Beach Advisory Committee – Bells Beach • Pam Keating Environmental Innovation: Council – Bells Beach Coastal Management and Interpretive Plans – Bells Beach • Towards Zero Waste: Council – Waste Wise Bells – Bells Beach. Surf Coast Shire Mayor, Libby Coker, welcomed the announcements and said the awards were recognition for a lot of hard work. “These awards recognise council’s concern for the Bells Beach Surfing Reserve,” she said. “Bells Beach is an internationally recognised location and these awards serve to highlight the efforts going into managing this special place.” Coker also took the opportunity to underline

that, contrary to recent reported comments, draft management plans currently on public display were designed to ensure a sustainable future for the iconic surfing destination. “The draft Bells Beach Coastal Management Plan is about finding ways to deal with the risks to the fragile environment of reserve and look after it into the future,” she said. “It is about managing the increasing people pressure it faces. “The fact that the Surf Coast has won the Environmental Innovation Award for the draft management plan recognises our careful and strategic approach to the management of the reserve. “We have a responsibility to act. If we do not, Bells Beach Reserve will be further degraded.”

Coker encouraged people to comment on the draft plan, which contains recommendations including: • Developing a licensing scheme to ensure the more-than 30 commercial operators that now use the Bells area contribute to maintenance • Providing upgraded infrastructure including a renewal of the stormwater systems, toilets at the Winkipop car park, new rubbish bins and landscaping that will preserve vegetation and views from current car parks • Reconfiguring the Winkipop car park to provide more efficient use of space and provide better, safer access for pedestrians, while preserving views of the surf. The plan will be on exhibition until Wednesday, June 30.

LAST week, council’s CEO Mark Davies and I attended the National General Assembly of Local Government 2010 session in Canberra. This was an important opportunity for us to not only discuss key issues of high population growth in a coastal setting, ageing populations, infrastructure needs and climate change – all of which are very relevant on the Surf Coast – but also to meet Federal Ministers to discuss local issues, challenges and opportunities for support. Other local issues and priorities raised were infrastructure needs to meet high visitation and increasing population, alternative energy opportunities and community expectations, management and support for our environment and support for young families, particularly in the areas of early childhood education and kindergarten needs. In our discussions, we brought a series of important local priorities to the table including major capital works to help preserve the environmental, social and cultural value of Bells Beach; developing the Anglesea and Torquay bowls clubs as community centres and ensuring local government across Victoria has the resources to continue its role in providing aged and family services. We stressed that our shire contributes $420,000 towards delivering aged services and $380,000 towards delivering family services annually in our municipality. The Federal Government’s Primary Health Reforms must consider the resourcing needs of councils and communities in growth areas like the Surf Coast Shire

2040: Get involved 2040: Get involved

Torquay Jan Juc 2040 Sustainable Futures is a groundbreaking project that will give you the opportunity to have a say on how these townships and the surrounding area of Bellbrae will grow and look now, and in 30 years time. 2040 will give you the opportunity to consider the level of development and the services we will need in regard to education, transport, commerce and industry, health and aged care and much more. And while this project comes at a time when Minister for Planning, Justin Madden, has made a decision within Amendment C37 to overturn council’s resolution to leave Torquay/Jan Juc’s western boundary at Duffields Road until 2040 is complete, there is still much opportunity for council, community and other stakeholders, to influence the future of our towns. We can consider buffer zones of trees around growth areas, we can ponder low or medium density housing and open spaces for recreation that project natural assets, types of building structures, services, community hubs and transport links. And remember, 2040 is not just about the Spring Creek valley, it is about the entire area of Torquay, Jan Juc and Bellbrae. Within the project we will ensure we investigate the future infrastructure needs for Torquay and Jan Juc, particularly with Armstrong Creek now on our doorstep. And we will examine potential for more sustainable ways of living and how we tackle the impact of climate change. So, over the next 12 months, I urge you to get involved. This project will become a blueprint for future decisions impacting on Torquay and Jan Juc so make sure you have your say. Watch this column for more information on how you can get involved in the consultation process.

Jumpstart Jam

Surf Coast Shire and the Coastal Productions FReeZA committee are giving local young musicians the chance to be recorded professionally and play in front of their mates. Jumpstart Jam is a great boost for young musicians and also for young photographers, who have the opportunity to get their image on the front cover of this year’s Coastal Productions local band compilation. Jumpstart Jam will kick off with performance nights this Saturday at Torquay College Performance Room from 6.30pm-11pm; and on Saturday, July 10 at the Deans Marsh Memorial Hall from 6.30pm11pm. Each event is drug, alcohol and smoke free and admission is $5. Local acts or bands can apply to play. Bands will have 15 minutes, solo artists 10 minutes; with at least half of their sets needing to be original tunes. All participants must live in the Surf Coast Shire and be aged between 12 and 25 years of age. For more information, visit www.surfcoast.vic. gov.au/youth.htm or contact Jarrod on 5261 0644.

Monthly meeting this week

Council’s monthly meeting this Wednesday will discuss a number of important issues including urban design guidelines for Aireys Inlet, which went on exhibition last year; universal kindergarten access and a proposal to make Surf Coast Shire a fair trade municipality; ensuring we use fair trade products in our activities. The meeting will be held at council’s Grossmans Road chambers from 6pm. All are welcome. Warm regards,

Abbott’s local pledge BY ELEANOR WOODS LEADER of the opposition, Tony Abbott, visited Winchelsea last week to make a promise that if elected, the Liberal Party would extend the Princes Highway upgrade from Winchelsea to Colac. The current Rudd Government has already committed $110million to upgrade the highway from Waurn Ponds to Winchelsea, but Abbott believed taking the four-lane highway through to Colac was “essential�. Abbott committed $175million for the works, which would be matched with $175million from the Victorian State Government. “This will definitely happen if a coalition government is elected later this year,� he said. Abbott said the Princes Highway was the major thoroughfare in south west Victoria and was vital to the region’s communities and economy. “It is an essential corridor for freight travelling between Adelaide and Geelong and is also a major tourist route,� he said. In the Friday announcement, Abbott and local liberal candidate for Corangamite, Sarah Henderson, pledged if the coalition was successful it would spend $20million on planning and engineering design works, land acquisitions and preliminary work over the next three years. “This is one of the most dangerous stretches of road in Victoria. I am absolutely ecstatic about the commitment,� Henderson said. “I have been meeting frequently with community and business leaders throughout the region as well as speaking with many local residents. “There was almost a universal view that the duplication of this stretch of road is the number one priority for Colac and for the region.� The works would not commence until the Waurn Ponds to Winchelsea highway extension was completed in 2014.

Make Torquay plastic free BY NATHAN HALE

Liberal candidate for Corangamite, Sarah Henderson, and the leader of the opposition, Tony Abbott, in Winchelsea last week.

To bypass or not to bypass? ALTHOUGH Tony Abbott said no decision on a bypass would be made until consultation with the community and the local council was undertaken, residents are already concerned. The thought that the four-lane, dualcarriage highway might bypass Winchelsea was met with disappointment from the community. Winchelsea’s Andrew Price said the town would “really suffer from it�.

“Of course it will be bad for the town. I’ve seen highways bypass towns before‌ it wrecks them‌ it will be a ghost town here,â€? he said. The Barwon Hotel’s Barbara Condron said many tourists stopped to use the facilities and support local businesses when they drove through town. “If they bypass Winchelsea it will be a real shame,â€? she said.

THE PUSH to make Torquay a plastic bag free town continues to gain momentum. Over the coming fortnight members of the Plastic Free Torquay committee will lobby the town’s business and retail community to garner support for the cause. During the two-week blitz, Plastic Free Torquay members will hand deliver letters of invitation to all traders in the Torquay area, asking them to attend an information evening next week. The evening, to be held at Sandbah Cafe in Gilbert Street at 6pm on Wednesday, June 30, will provide business owners and operators with the opportunity to find out more about becoming a plastic free town. “The aim of this session is to seek feedback from the retail community about the proposal, provide some information on what we hope to achieve with the campaign and also offer details about plastic bag alternatives,� said Claire Gilbert, co-ordinator of Plastic Free Torquay. “We have also asked Peter Calvert from Anglesea IGA to come along to share his experiences as a retailer, making the transition to plastic bag free status. “Peter was directly involved with the Anglesea plastic shopping bag free initiative four years ago.� Plastic Free Torquay has already gained support from the Torquay Commerce and Tourism Association at their recent monthly meeting, and already, Anglesea, Aireys Inlet and Winchelsea are plastic bag free towns. For further information on the campaign, or if you would like to become involved, phone Claire Gilbert on 0408 574 856.

Anglesea police encourage youth BY ELEANOR WOODS ANGLESEA police are tackling antisocial youths with a new, positive approach. The Anglesea and Airey’s Inlet Police Youth Awards, which were launched yesterday, aim to recognise and acknowledge young people for leadership within the community. Sergeant Kevin Warburton, who is the driving force behind the programme, said the aim is to reward positive behaviour and reduce the level of anti-social behaviour in the Anglesea and Aireys Inlet region.

Youths who show outstanding community spirit or achievement will be rewarded in the new scheme, hopefully inspiring others to follow suit. The nominees can come from any sector of the community, including sporting, music and art endeavours. “The awards are to encourage young people to make responsible decisions and to consider and respect other,� Sergeant Warburton said. Other aims of the incentive were to encourage outdoor activities and promote a healthy lifestyle while engaging youth with their local

Senior Detective Greg Baeck, from Torquay Police, confirmed that several items had been stolen from the club. Two fire extinguishers had also been let off in the club’s kitchen before being taken from the premises or hidden. The offenders gained entry to the SLSC by breaking a window and smashing a door with “a considerable amount of force�, Baeck said.

community. “As police we want to work with the young people in the community and develop partnerships to assist youth issues,� Warburton said. Members of the community are encouraged to contact the Anglesea police station and nominate young persons aged 12 to 21 years for the first award, which will be announced at the end of July. Nominees should live in Anglesea or Aireys Inlet or be regularly involved in the community through sporting, community or other groups. The awards, which are a joint

project between Anglesea police, Surf Coast Shire, Alcoa, The Bendigo Community Bank, the YMCA and other community organisations, will be presented on a bi-monthly basis and winners will be decided by local business leaders. Framed certificates and prizes, including mountain bikes are up for grabs for award winners, but more than that police hoped to foster a more positive relationship with youths. “It’s all about building closer relationships with kids to help provide a pathway to address youth issues,� Warburton said.

Dedicated to helping others coast community environment

BY ELEANOR WOODS THE DAY before five-year-old Kate Vasey was to start school she slipped through a glass pane and tragically bled to death. Now, 13 years on from the ordeal, her parents, George and Belinda, are helping other families deal with losing their children. The Jan Juc couple are ambassadors for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Kids Victoria and are supporting Red Nose Day this Friday. “SIDS and Kids have been invaluable to us. You could never imagine needing a group like this until you do,” George said. The 40-year-old father reflected on how helpful the group was following the loss of his loving and charismatic child. “It was a devastating loss. Kate was such a bubbly and boisterous little thing. When she died the house was just so quiet,” he said. George and Belinda’s grief process was made easier with the help of SIDS and Kids, who provide care and support in various ways. From counselling to trained parent support, the organisation is on hand 24 hours a day. About 400 Victorian families, whose children have died suddenly, rely on the service every year. Red Nose Day fundraising provides the majority of SIDS and Kids’ funding. George was keen to emphasise that the organisation does not deal solely with cases of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, but any unexpected death of a child.

“It’s a support network for anyone who has lost a child. For us it was so helpful knowing other people had gone through something similar,” he said. Following Kate’s death, George was inspired to help others and trained as a paramedic. “I developed an interest in helping others in the community. It seemed a logical step,” he said. Now working for Ambulance Victoria in the Geelong region he is able to use his experience to understand what others are going through. “I’m always mindful. Maybe an experience like this connects you, even with complete strangers,” he said. George encouraged anyone who is dealing with the loss of a child or knows someone who is and does not know how to help, to contact SIDS and Kids and “just talk to them”. “Acknowledge the loss. When it is ignored it is like a big white elephant in the room. It completely isolates you. Just say, I’m sorry. That is far more powerful than a casserole,” he said. George, Belinda and their children, Mardi, Ned, Claudia and Joseph draw strength from their experience and keep Kate’s memory alive. “She did exist and still does in our hearts and spirits,” he said. “We had a great loss but we are also very blessed. We have a great marriage and a great family and we have survived this together. “We are very lucky, we have blossomed despite tragedy.” For more information on Red Nose Day, visit www. rednose.day.com.au

News in brief Lorne pool to be heated The Lorne Foreshore precinct has received a $758,000 State Government grant to heat up the Lorne Pool and Foreshore Precinct. The Regional Infrastructure Development Fund grant will heat the pool through the Geoexchange system. The project includes the installation of the Geoexchange system consisting of two main components: • Ground source heat pumps which will use heat transfer of ground source energy to heat the

swimming pool and associated hydrotherapy pools and spas and will also be used to cool building spaces; and • The ground heat exchanger serving water-towater heat pumps. Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney, said this was a project that many Lorne community members have worked very hard to get off the ground. “It is another example of the Government’s determination and commitment to supporting families and communities living and working in rural and regional Victoria,” she said.

Anglesea car smash conviction

Fish and chips on the horizon

A 22-YEAR-OLD Corio man has been fined $2,500 after being found guilty of criminal damage and assault after a string of car attacks in Anglesea late last year. In total, 28 cars were damaged in the mindless attacks on October 3, causing more than $30,000 in damage. Sergeant Kevin Warburton, of Anglesea Police, was disappointed that charges against two Lara men who were suspected to have been involved in the offence, were dropped due to insufficient evidence..

THE OWNER of Torquay Fish and Chips, Jim Tsiantas, is counting down until his store will be re-opened in six weeks. The well-loved shop in Gilbert Street was gutted by fire in February this year due to an electrical fault. Tsiantas said he was excited about rebuilding his store, saying he had several new ideas up his sleeve. “The break from the shop has given me time to look at my business. It is my passion and I can’t wait to get back in there. It’s been too long,” he said.

Coker welcomes $2m funding SURF Coast Shire Mayor, Libby Coker, has welcomed the announcement of $2million in Federal Government funding for the Winchelsea Integrated Neighbourhood Community Hub (WINCH). The funding announcement – secured after more than a decade of hard work from Winchelsea community members – follows on from a $400,000 commitment from the shire and almost $100,000 in community funding from the Eastern Reserve Committee of Management. The new project complements an array of refurbishments and upgrades at Eastern Reserve in recent years that have dramatically increased participation in recreational activities including sport. The hub will provide a centre for a variety of community activities and events – catering for more than 20 user groups, include a community gym, meeting rooms, office space, commercial kitchen and multipurpose function space catering for up to 300 people. The building will use environmentally sustainable design principles and will be linked to the

existing pavilion. “This is a very exciting announcement for Winchelsea that helps council achieve one of our major priority projects,” Coker said. “We are grateful for the work of local MP Darren Cheeseman in helping put this project forward as a priority. My fellow councillors, especially Dean Webster and Rose Hodge, have also lobbied extensively to help make this happen. “The Eastern Reserve Committee has done an amazing job in raising nearly $100,000 to go towards this development. The committee’s work with council has made Eastern Reserve a real community focal point in Winchelsea and this must be recognised. “This is an example of what can be achieved when the community, council and Federal Government join forces. “We will see the benefits of this facility throughout the Surf Coast for many years to come.” Detailed consultation with potential user groups and detailed design work on the facility will begin shortly.

Sujin celebrates perfect 10 BY NATHAN HALE TORQUAY’S Sujin Thai is set to celebrate its 10th birthday with a weeklong series of specials. The ever-popular Surf Coast Highwaybased restaurant will mark 10 years of serving up top-quality Thai food with a special celebration on Monday, June 28. In the lead-up to that party, however, the restaurant is offering specials on meals – take away or eat in – all through this week. “It is an opportunity to say thank you to the community for supporting us through all these years,” said restaurant owner, Sujin.

“I hold a special birthday party each year to celebrate and say thank you to clients, but this year will be very special. “Apart from the evening celebrations on Monday, June 28, we will also be running specials all through the week in the lead up to the night.” Following on from the continued success of her Torquay establishment, Sujin late last year opened a second restaurant in Geelong. Despite the new outlet, Sujin said it has changed nothing in terms of the Torquay restaurant. “I spend time at Geelong at our waterfront restaurant but I am still at the

Torquay restaurant every day,” she said. “So you can be assured that I am still in here doing exactly the same as I was before we opened in Geelong.” So with 10 years under her belt and two restaurants to look after, is there any time to sit back, relax and enjoy a quiet period? “No… I work seven days a week,” Sujin said. “Through the day I will catch up with all of the bookwork and then through the night we have the two restaurants to run, so there is always something to do. “I can’t remember the last time I had a holiday.”

Enjoying a coastal classroom ANGLESEA Primary School students have freed themselves from the classroom and made their way into the dunes to learn more about their coastal environment. Over three consecutive weeks students spent two hours in the dunes at Point Roadknight as part of the Dune EduAction programme. In the first week they removed the

environmental weeds, Myrtle-leaf Milkwort, Polygala myrtifolia and Cretan Trefoil, Lotus creticus; in the second they provided protection for the 700 plants that Bellbrae Primary School planted by laying brush matting on the sand dunes; while in their final week they planted and put tree guards on 200 plants.

land managers and community groups, identified areas of degraded coastal dune ecosystems between Anglesea and Apollo Bay that required restoration. During that year Eco-logic Education and Environmental Services received an Australian Government Caring for our Country, Community Coastcare Grant, which enabled them to run the Dune EduAction programme between Anglesea and Apollo Bay. Dune EduAction has incorporated local and visiting primary and secondary school students, community and industry to undertake on-ground coastal dune restoration works. To date there have been 1,600 participants in Dune EduAction from 20 different schools over 57 two- hour Dune EduAction sessions. Local schools who have taken part in the sessions include Anglesea Primary School, Bellbrae Primary School, LorneAireys Inlet P-12 College and Apollo Bay P-12 College. To date, the students have planted more than 7,000 plants. Each session has an education component where students learn about coastal processes, coastal critters such as the threatened Hooded Plover, the cultural significance of sand dunes and the impact that humans have on this fragile part of our coastal environment. Once students understand the importance of conserving sand dunes, they participate in on ground works such as brush matting, weeding or revegetation.

Teenagers Christina Ruiz, 16, and Madelyn McDonald, 15, from Jan Juc Surf Life Saving Club, performed exceptionally during the event, which qualified them for the Barras. Ruiz was selected for the Silver Barras under 19 team and was named in the open Australian squad. McDonald was selected for the Junior Barras under 16 team and was named overall under 16 female champion. Only the competition’s top four male and the top four female athletes from each age group are selected for the Barras, which offers pathways into international competitions, training camps and grand prix events. Both girls also won individual and team medals at the 2010 Victorian Surf Lifesaving Championships representing Jan Juc SLSC and are keen to continue to develop their skills in both pool lifesaving and surf lifesaving. Jan Juc SLSC’s Wesley McDonald said everyone associated was proud of the girls, saying they have been a major influence on introducing other club members to the pool aspect of lifesaving competition. The girls were part of the Jan Juc Surf Life Saving Club team which ended the championship with a string of outstanding results. Apart from Ruiz and McDonald, Jan Juc had a number of competitors who finished the top 10, again underlining the strength of the club both in the pol and in the ocean.

PROTECTING THE BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENT OF THE BARRABOOL HILLS

Why did State Government, City of Greater Geelong and Surf Coast Shire allocate more than $2 million towards the purchase of McAdam Park by Motorcycling Australia without considering the impact of organised motorcyle racing on the Barrabool community and environment? Who decided that a major regional motorsports facility in Barrabool was a good idea? What conditions did State Government and Surf Coast Shire place on their grants? Why have these not been disclosed to the public? Why did Michael Crutchfield MP say there were “no planning issues on its current operations” when there is uncertainty about the extent of the existing use right, an unenforced land management plan and numerous buildings and works that have no planning permits? Why wouldn’t Michael Crutchfield MP meet with community representatives to hear their concerns? Why hasn’t Surf Coast Shire enforced its own planning scheme? Why has this community been represented so poorly by those we relied on?

Time to show leadership Dear Editor, I write this letter regarding the proposed reuse of stormwater by the RACV Torquay Golf Club in my capacity as a retired chief executive of large metropolitan councils in both Melbourne and Sydney and not in my capacity as a member of the Torquay Golf Club. It would seem to me that the crux of the golf club application is whether or not the proposed stormwater harvesting will damage the creek and a number of technical papers addressing this issue were submitted as part of that application. The report on the application submitted to council by its professional staff contained a recommendation for ‘in principle’ approval subject to a number of conditions but council chose to ignore that recommendation. In the event that the council was still uncertain as to the technical merits of the proposal then in my view the appropriate course for it to have taken was to commission an independent review or audit of the application by a suitably qualified person or persons and then take that report into account when determining the matter. For the council to instead invite public comment on a highly technical matter is in my opinion a total abrogation of the council’s responsibility. The Local Government Act 1989 Section 3D (1) makes it clear that the role of a council is (inter alia) to provide leadership for the good governance of the municipal district and the local community – the key word being ‘leadership’. Avoiding making hard decisions is the very antithesis of leadership and council richly deserves the adverse criticism that it is now getting from the community at large over its handling of this important issue – and quite a few others as well.

Education promise raises questions Dear Editor, Great to see the Liberal Party’s advertisements out and about – committing $20million for a full secondary school (which the shire is getting anyway). I ask you, Minister Dixon, will you be offering education in 2012 all the way through to Year 12 or will you be using a more logical approach like that of the current model building each year level as the school population grows? Thirteen acres is a great size, not far off what we will have by the time the current model is finished. Yes, we all agree that the Brumby government was a bit slow on delivering the full secondary component – but it’s here now so we probably don’t need another one thanks. Some of us still remember all the school closures from the Liberal government’s last attempt at fixing education. I think I’ll take my chances with the current model – it appears to be working – all my kids are smiling. If 50 parents jumping up and down can get us a $20million promise I can only imagine what we could get if 100 people jumped up and down? Leigh Bartlett Torquay

Northern Water Plant raises questions Dear Editor,

Is this a genuine change? Dear Editor, Michael Crutchfield takes personal blame and invites anyone who has any problems with lack of information about schooling in Torquay to “come and see me” (Surf Coast Times, June 15). We wish worried residents of Torquay and surrounding areas the very best of luck in gaining an audience with Mr Crutchfield. Residents of Barrabool experienced a similar lack of information about Mr Crutchfield’s support of massive and inappropriate development at McAdam Park, but their attempts to see him were thwarted by his unwillingness to meet with anyone who disagreed with his views. He publicly attacked the motives of members of our community and flatly refused to meet community representatives. Perhaps recent complaints of Mr Crutchfield’s arrogance have prompted his advisers to suggest a new approach. But such traits run deep, and after

The Works Approval Application to the EPA for the Northern Water Plant to be operated by Barwon Water and supply recycled water to Shell and to parks and gardens, has now become available. Many things are missing; we can’t see in the

design how long the plant will last, nor costs. The cost has already been announced, all of $90million, to be shared by the Commonwealth, Victoria, Barwon Water, and Shell. In comparison, the massive desalination plant at Wonthaggi is going to produce 150,000 mega-litres per year of drinking water for Melbourne, and will cost $3.5billion. If we had that at Corio, 75 times smaller, pro-rata scaled down giving 2,000ML of water per annum, it would cost about $50million. But the NWP will cost twice that amount, producing only industrial quality water; Black Rock in its time cost $60million for a much higher volume. Using the Wonthaggi example, $50million would be a generous estimate. Why should the NWP at $90million be twice that cost? Peter Linaker Ocean Grove

Red Shield Appeal Dear Editor, Australians have once again strongly supported The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal doorknock, with more than $6.8million being raised across Australia. This interim tally following the weekend appeal, compared to the same time in 2009, is an increase of approximately 5 per cent. We thank all Australians who have contributed so generously to the Red Shield Appeal this year. We do not take it for granted, and without this support we would not be able to continue with our wide range of social programmes and community services, assisting those who are disadvantaged and marginalised in our community. We also thank the many thousands of volunteer collectors right around Australia who assisted us this weekend in raising these vital funds and the hundreds of Westpac employees who have donated their time in Westpac branches to assist with the appeal. For those who still wish to make a tax deductible donation, please call 13 72 58 or visit www. salvationarmy.org.au Donations can also be made at any Westpac branch, or by sending a cheque to PO Box 9888 in any capital city.

State’s best hit the coast BY NATHAN HALE

“We might do something like get a ‘suspect’ to dump a car at Point Addis car park and then head along the Surf Coast track towards Anglesea,” Condon said. “Along the way we will have the team track the ‘suspect’ and then when we end up at the scout camp we might run a cordon and contain exercise. “It is all training that we can encounter on a dayto-day basis.” Last week’s training drill also included the dog squad and air wing units, with the three teams working together to obtain the best result.

SOME of the State’s leading tactical response police officers have been converging on the Surf Coast for specialist intensive situation training. Members of the Melbourne-based Critical Incidence Response (CIR) Unit have been training in and around Point Addis and the Eumeralla Scout Camp just outside of Anglesea in recent weeks. Peter Condon, who is part of the highly trained unit, said the area between Point Addis and Eumeralla offers the team member a great space to employ variable response situations.

The dog squad can offer the CIR unit sniff and search capabilities while the air wing squad uses infra red technology and thermal imaging to assist with the search. Condon said the CIR unit deals with some of the most intense situations the State police force will encounter. “We will look after things such as hostage situations and witness protection, as well as providing other services,” he said. “We work out of Melbourne and have 130 people in the office and we cover the entire state… the last few months have been particularly busy for us.”

Riders strike a pot of gold EQUINE therapy charity, Rainbow Riders, received a welcome pot of gold from The Sands Torquay recently. Owner of The Sands, Paddy Handbury, presented Rainbow Riders’ president, Colin Cooper, with a cheque for more than $30,000 – the proceeds from the Cotton On Foundation Handbury Classic Golf Day held earlier this year. More than 120 golfers took part in the day, which included raffles, an auction and other associated fundraising idea to help raise money for the Connewarre-based charity. The funds will go towards the day-to-day running costs of the farm, as well as other improvements. Rainbow Riders is an equine-assisted growth and learning centre that provides a unique, long-term, client-focused day programme for disadvantaged young people in the region. The programme aims to improve self-esteem and confidence, family and peer relationships, and social skills, and encourages healthy choices, behaviour modification, and anger management.

Warralily lots snapped up

PARTY

BOAT

HYGEIA

THE INTEREST in the Surf Coast’s and Bellarine’s newest neighbour, Armstrong Creek, was underlined on the weekend with the first stage release of Warralily. Following strong buyer interest, 46 home sites went to market with 100 per cent sold on the day, with lots snapped up by eager buyers keen to get their slice of the exciting residential development. In addition, 50 lots were secured by display home builders. The home sites, ranging in size from 442sqm to 717sqm and priced from $157,000, were sold via a ballot system to registered purchasers. The event, attended by hundreds of people, saw new home buyers pulled from the barrel one by one to select the lot of their choice and take the first steps in becoming part of the Warralily community. Anthony Barnett was the first person drawn from the ballot, and he said he was drawn to Warralily due to the location close to the coast and Geelong. “I didn’t expect to be the first and I’m so excited, the development has everything my family needs and will give

my boys the space to run around,� he said. Warralily general manager of development, Mark Whinfield, said the day had been a great success with people drawn to the location and future amenities the masterplan will offer. “People here today have been attracted to what the new community will offer. With home sites from $157,000, families will be able to put together a house and land package from around $330,000,� he said. “After years of planning, it is rewarding to see the buyers so excited by the opportunity to buy land here and we’re delighted to welcome the first future Warralily residents to their new home.� Following this first stage release, the development will enter into the construction phase, with infrastructure construction planned to begin in the next couple of months and homes expected to start construction in the first quarter of 2011.

money matters THIS PAGE IS PROUDLY SUPPORTED BY GEELONG FINANCIAL GROUP

Investment Properties – When and Where? BY MIKE WALMSLEY Experienced property investors will give an immediate answer as to when is the best time to purchase an investment property. The answer is “yesterday”. The reason behind their response is obvious to most and it is simply because property continues to increase in value, and for this reason will always be a very sound investment. Since records commenced property has increased by a compounded 10.4% each year. Buying an investment property is a business decision so it requires the purchaser to understand the fundamentals to achieve the best result. Anyone can buy real estate but not everyone will profit greatly without committing time to the process. Opportunities extend far and wide throughout Australia. At this point in time to buy locally in the Geelong area is a wise move and there are also excellent buying opportunities in both Adelaide & Perth.

Important Tips. The Process. Investment properties should be bought without emotion. The moment you involve your personal tastes the deal will be spoilt. Investing is all about numbers and if the deal “stacks up’ it should seriously be considered. Finance. Have your finance in place. This will allow for you to place an unconditional offer on a property and all vendors enjoy seeing a line ruled through “special conditions”. Budget Work within a budget. Your broker/bank will advise you of your borrowing capacity. Remember to add a 5% sum to your potential purchase price to allow for stamp duty, legal costs etc. If your are purchasing a $400,000 property you will require access to $420,000. Where to Buy? Always consider infrastructure when purchasing an investment property. Tenants are tenants for a good reason. The reason is that in the majority of cases that they cannot afford their own home so

they lease a property and pay rent. Many who pay rent are saving for their own home. If you are saving or simply paying rent and enjoying life you will want value for your rent payment. Value comes from being close to many of the things that are important to you and these include public transport, schools, shopping centres and sporting facilities. Auctions Avoid the auction situation if it is at all possible. Why? The answer is that most properties sold at auction sell above the reserve price. If several parties are interested in the same property then the purchase price is often inflated in a bidding war.

“Remember make decisions with your mind, not your heart”.

Mike Walmsley is a buyer’s agent and if you would like to meet with him he can be contacted at Geelong Financial Group on 5261 6530.

Decision Making The worst decisions are made by two types of purchasers. They are those who are greedy and those who cannot swallow their pride. When purchasing be sensible and be fair. Make a genuine offer which will allow the communication channels to flow freely. A “silly” low offer on a property will harm your relationship with the agent and the vendor.

Housing cracks appearing CONCERN that Australia may indeed have a housing bubble is gaining traction as each new release of data shows that housing sales and housing loans are declining sharply. To understand these declines it is important to understand the dramatic effect the government’s First Home Owner’s Grant boost had when introduced in early 2009. This “free” money enticed a lot of buyers into the market and was instrumental in the general housing price increase of the last year. The maths is simple. The now expired boost brought forward and exacerbated demand and added to buyer’s deposits. From there leverage took over. For example, a person with a $21,000 deposit and a bank willing to lend at a 95 per cent loan to value ratio (LVR) allowed that person to purchase a $420,000 property. An additional $7,000 grant increases the deposit available to $28,000 which at a 95 per

cent LVR can be leveraged up to $560,000. Single-handedly, the grant, in this example, has increased the price a person can pay for a home by 33 per cent. This, however, works both ways, placing the housing market in a highly vulnerable situation. When people become less willing to take on more debt or begin to pay off debt the inevitable consequence is that prices suffer A once positive feedback loop of rising credit and rising prices becomes a negative feedback loop of less debt and falling prices. Property spruikers insist that Australia is different. Jeremy Grantham, a highly regarded Boston-based fund manager who believes Australia has a significant property bubble, wryly noted that, “bubbles have quite a few things in common but housing bubbles have a spectacular thing in common, and that is every one of them is considered unique and different”. Which is why saying that Australia is different, is not so different after all!

Wearing yellow is better than black

ONE IN two men will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85. It could be you or it could be your best mate. It is a statistic Australia’s leading sporting stars are not taking lightly. Leaving rivalries behind, sporting clubs from the NRL, AFL and FFA are uniting to tackle their toughest opponent yet – cancer. Socceroos’ Tim Cahill, Essendon’s Andrew Welsh and Parramatta Eels’ Tim Mannah are leading the charge to call for local sporting clubs to join the professionals and hold a Call To Arms match this July. “I’m passionate about Call To Arms because I know what it’s like to be forced off the footy field by a cancer diagnosis,” said former Essendon star, Adam Ramanauskas. “You think it won’t happen to you, but I know exactly what it’s like to hear the words ‘you have cancer’. And if you’re an Australian man, odds are one day you or someone you know will too.” “Compared to women, Australian men are more likely to be diagnosed with cancer and are more likely to die from the disease,” said Cancer Council Victoria community fundraising manager, Irene Manitta. Registration for Call To Arms 2010 is now open. Register your club at www.calltoarms.com.au and don yellow armbands to raise funds and awareness for cancer in men. Call To Arms is open to all ages, from junior leagues, up to professional clubs from all codes.

Channel Nine newsreader, Peter Hitchener, was special guest at the Bunnings store in Corio recently to help promote the Geelong Hospital Appeal. Hitchener joined appeal mascot, Dr Bear, and Louie Hehir, Face of the 2010 appeal, as part of the Geelong Hospital Appeal Giving Weekend. The store hosted a party for the community in support of the Giving Weekend, which raised money for the redevelopment of the Children’s Ward at the Geelong Hospital.

Students help to raise awareness SAINT Ignatius College students have been meeting their mission to provide important services to the community while also supporting bowel cancer prevention and screening. Year 7 students who live locally in the Bellarine Peninsula participated in a letterbox drop to raise awareness of Bowelscan Month and the need to participate in the programme.

The distribution of Bowelscan flyers was organised by head of the middle school, Narelle Fry, and Rotarian and programme co-ordinator, Max Fry. Fry is a strong advocate and tireless worker of the Bowelscan awareness programme, and was proud to join forces with Saint Ignatius College and give the students an opportunity and the responsibility to promote Bowelscan.

Delivering pamphlets in Drysdale were St Ignatius Year 7 students Marty Connor, Abbey Middleton, Rotarian Max Fry, student Nat Gravener and Saint Ignatius College director of the middle school, Narelle Fry.

Red Cross opens in Geelong

THE REGION’S newest Red Cross offices were opened in Geelong last week. While opening the new offices, Red Cross chief executive, Robert Tickner, explained how the organisation will be assisting the vulnerable and disadvantaged local community. Tickner said Red Cross is heading in an important new direction to work with the most disadvantaged people in the most disadvantaged communities. “We know that children born in disadvantaged locations are likely to have poorer education, employment, and health outcomes and a higher interaction with the criminal justice system,� he said. “It is hoped that in the future, young people from the region will be able to benefit from a number of Red Cross programmes to assist with youth disengagement and mental health issues. “With two large prisons in the area, there’s also the potential to assist prisoners and their families.� Red Cross executive director for Victoria, Toni Aslett, said Red Cross has a long history in the region and the new premises would better meet the organisation’s needs now and well into the future. The office is located at 49 Mercer Street.

TREATING children with colds is more complex than adults due to dosing and age requirements. For treatment of snot or nasal congestion in children over two, nasal decongestants can be used in the form of nasal drops or spray. They can only be used for three-four days continuously then require a couple of days break. Decongestants are also available with antihistamines for an added drying action and are available in syrup – which is pleasant tasting – according to the manufacturers. Children under the age of two can use saline nasal drops to help flush out the snot but need a doctor’s prescription for decongestant syrups. Often a cough related to a cold is due to phlegm running down the back of the throat, so a cough suppressant is often effective, once again, only in children over the age of two. Children will often have multiple colds during the first five years of their life and symptomatic treatment with fluids, pain or fever relief and rest is often all that is needed. With any concerns for treatment please see your local pharmacist who will be happy to advise the best treatment for your child.

Top expo returns

EVERY year the REIV runs a competition to find the best senior and novice auctioneers in Victoria. The winner and runner-up of the senior competition then represents the state at the Australasian awards. The last time Victoria won at the Australasian auctioneer awards was five years ago, when Justin Long of Marshall White took home the top prize. Given that auctioneering is such an important part of the buying and selling of property in this state – more so than in other parts of Australia – the Institute has high hopes that this year’s winner will take out the title of the Australasian Real Estate Institutes’ Auctioneering Champion when the competition is held in New Zealand. Last week the heats were held at the REIV and, after 12 mock auctions, five finalists were selected. In the heats they were asked to run an auction and deal with all manner of tricky and technical questions to test their abilities and knowledge. They were judged by their peers. The five finalists this year are: Adrian Butera of Compton & Green Real Estate Solutions in Williamstown, Peter Clark of Clark First National in Warragul, Alisha Hobart of Harcourts Frankston, Richard James of Jellis Craig in Hawthorn and Matthew Young of Buxton St Kilda. They will compete in the final on Wednesday, July 7 from 2pm-5.30pm in the Pavilion Room at the Arts Centre. The event is free and open to the public. I would like to encourage anyone who enjoys an auction on the weekend to make the time to watch some of this state’s best in action.

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.

Industry Info

No quick fixes for housing affordability AUSTRALIA’S current housing affordability crisis has taken 20 years to be fully manifested, and according to this year’s State of the Regions Report released last week in Canberra, it will take a decade or two of intense policy application to fix. “The State of the Regions Report proves that the current shortage of affordable housing is not a recent development that can simply be blamed on council planning processes,� said Geoff Lake, president of the Australian Local Government Association. “We have long been arguing that blaming l ocal government for the housing affordability

crisis is simply not credible. Now this report backs that up.� ALGA commissioned Dr Peter Brain of National Economics to address the housing affordability problem as part of the annual State of the Regions Report with a view to putting some rigour into the causes and solutions to housing affordability in Australia. “If we do not understand the real causes of the problem we will never as a community develop sustainable solutions to appropriately or affordably house our citizens,� Lake said. The report shows that decades of under investment

Rentals

in infrastructure and misguided industry policy have resulted in housing shortages. Investment in commuter transport and freight transport would have supported job generation in regions with greenfield sites. The report estimates that the curtailment of government transport investment required to support new dwelling construction since 1980 has now generated an investment backlog of the order of $350billion. In addition, government investment in industry policy and service provision has fallen short by around $150 billion. “To address a problem of this magnitude requires

all levels of government and industry to work collaboratively rather than engaging in some old fashion council bashing and tinkering at the edges with talk of administrative reform of planning processes,� Lake said. “Disappointingly, state and federal government ministers appear captives of the development industry in picking the low hanging fruit of planning process reform to create the illusion of government action on affordable housing. “We wish they would turn their minds to the real problem and we hope this State of the Regions Report helps them to focus on it.�

Your home is your world GJ GARDNER Homes Geelong is pleased to announce the opening of its newest Display Home, the Catania 234 – a new plan to the GJ Gardner Homes Metro range. The Catania has been designed with flexibility in mind. Areas within the home have been apportioned to enable sections of the home to be easily mirrored and in some respects, switched, so that the home can be adaptable to a wide variety of living styles while addressing the issues of orientation towards the sun. Such changes are possible without modifying the floor area or roofline and thus resulting in no change to the cost of the home. In addition, this thought to design and flexibility means the floor plan can be readily adapted to sloping blocks with

minimal disruption to the layout and design, while adding floor area by closing in the alfresco area, or extending the home with an upper storey which can all be readily accomplished. The Catania is truly an innovative design with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, study nook, outdoor area, lounge, laundry, open kitchen, meals and family room and double garage. Space has been utilised in an extremely versatile and practical way. All bedrooms are totally private and separate and all living areas are social and open plan – yet if you look at the floorplan closely, you will see the advantages of entertaining guests anytime. Guests are able to move with ease from the front entrance, to the lounge and through to the alfresco and kitchen

area, without entering the main living area of the home. Perfect for keeping what appears to be an open design totally separate. Make this design your own! GJ Gardner Homes allows you to customise this plan; add a fourth or fifth bedroom, powder room near the alfresco area, or turn the lounge in to a theatre room! Your home is your world… The display home is situated at 13 Springwater Drive, Lara (part of the Grand Lakes Estate). The Catania starts at $198,200 (as displayed is $297,150) and is open for viewing from 12pm-5pm, Saturday through to Wednesday. For more information, phone 5221 1447 or visit the design centre at 228 Moorabool Street, Geelong between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday or visit www.gjgardner.com.au

Festival’s perfect craic

BY NATHAN HALE

NATIONAL Celtic Festival director, Una McAlinden, has declared this year’s three-day celebration as the best yet. While she is well aware this is an all-toocommon statement from event organisers, McAlinden said all feedback received pointed to the Portarlington festival being better than ever. “It was just amazing, amazing, amazing,” she said. “I am so happy the festival went off as well as

it did… we haven’t done any final calculating of figures for ticket sales and people to the region, but I am sure they will reflect the success of the three days.” The festival again drew visitors from throughout Australia and internationally, with not only the fans enjoying the long weekend of music and workshops, but also the bands. In one of the biggest votes of confidence in the festival, Irish headline act, Beoga, was glowing in its praise. “Beoga was everyone’s favourite,” McAlinden said.

“And when I spoke to them they said they had been travelling and touring for the last 10 months and this was by far the best festival they had been to. “So to get that sort of praise is great for everyone concerned with the festival.” Apart from visitors attending from New South Wales, South Australia and other states, McAlinden said there were also French, German – and, of course, Celtic national representation through the Irish, Welsh and Scottish. This year’s festival also hosted the Golden

Fiddle Awards – which was the first time the award had been held outside of Australia’s country and western capital, Tamworth. And the award will be winging its way back to Ireland after Dubliner Sharon Hussey was successful. Hussey and her band, The Craic Hooers, are regulars around the Temple Bar district in Dublin and also proved a hit at Portarlington. To keep up to date with information on next year’s festival as it becomes available, visit www.nationalcelticfestival.com

Jumpstart your career

YOUNG people throughout the Surf Coast are being given the opportunity to showcase their talents at open mic nights as part of the Jumpstart Jam programme. The first of the open mic nights will be held this Saturday at the Torquay P-9 College performance room from 6.30pm-11pm. The second evening will be held at the Deans Marsh Memorial Hall on Saturday, July 10 from 6.30pm-11pm. The open mic nights are a music competition with judges; where the highest marks will land participants with an opportunity to get recorded on a compilation CD with the other winners. To be eligible you must be between 12 and 25 years old; at least one member of your band/ act must live in the Surf Coast Shire; you cannot get recorded two years running (Kool Skools equivalent project). Winners of the open mic nights must be available for recording; must be willing to assist with the production of the CD including name, graphics etc; and must commit to selling a portion of the CDs. The project is a fantastic springboard for young, talented artists, granting experience in both live performance and the recording and distribution of CDs. This is the opportunity of a lifetime for budding young performers, but the following guildelines must be adhered to:

• Lyrics for all songs played must be sent to organisers prior to the event, to ensure the prevention of any defamatory or degrading content • On the night, bands will have 15 minutes to play, solo artists will have 10. At least 50 per cent of the set must be original music • Those selected to record must be completely ready on their allocated day, as you will have a time limit that you must adhere to • Only original songs can be recorded. Along with the recording project, a Jumpstart Photo Competition will also be held. Send us in a photo that you think will impress us and you may win the chance to shoot the Jumpstart Jam CD cover! Again, criteria requirements are needed, and include living in the Surf Coast Shire and be aged between 12 and 25 years. Photographs can be emailed to youth_ development@surfcoast.vic.gov.au and must include contact details and the reason why you took the shot. The photos must also be sent in prior to the night to ensure the prevention of any defamatory or degrading content. Finalists will be displayed on the nights. Other entertainment will be running on the night, including a Nintendo 64 Challenge. For more information, phone Jarrod at the Surf Coast Shire’s Youth Development on 5261 0644.

Ocean Grove’s Open Mic Festival was well supported by artists and the wider community, who saw a wide range of musical styles and genres on offer over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. Jon Willard was one of the musicians who kept the crowds happy through the weekend. Photo: MICHAEL CHAMBERS

Relive the days of Our Gracie TALENTED Geelong duo Shirley Power and Colin Mockett will present a new show at Drysdale’s Potato Shed today. Back To The ’30s with Gracie, Albert & The Lion will premiere at 10.30am today – so be quick. The new musical show is an original performance featuring Power and Mockett, four musical instruments and 150 images on a big screen. The show is a biography of Gracie Fields, who was the biggest female star in the world in that astonishing, amazing 1930s era. Fields dominated every aspect of entertainment

GRAPEVINE

in her time; theatre, film, and radio – and everyone knew her as Our Gracie. Power and Mockett will be telling her story and presenting eight of her songs, sung by Power. The show will also combine the story of Marriott Edgar, who in the same period (1930s) wrote the work judged in a BBC poll as the world’s favourite poem of the 20th Century – Albert & The Lion. In researching for the performance, Power and Mockett travelled to Lancashire in England to visit the Gracie Fields Museum – so you can be assured of a quality production.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

CORKS CREW CELLARS

Big blokes reds YEP, IT has been a wee bit chilly of late I must say, which has seen me make a bee-line for some reds that are a little more substantial in style than what I might normally choose. Big, thick, thumping reds that put flesh on your bones and make you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. With this mind, I must make special mention of the Angoves red featured below – the Big Blokes Red. It has been created to raise awareness of prostate cancer amongst men and their families by donating 50 cents from every bottle sold to help fund this initiative. It’s a fantastic idea that hopefully “gets ya thinkin’ while ya drinkin”! As for the other two, well they’re both just superlative indulgences that I couldn’t resist including here… stay warm and enjoy!

Angoves ‘Big Blokes Red’ South Australian Shiraz 2008 ($15)

Ripe, juicy bright red fruit aromatics on the nose lead to a big, generous mouthful of primary cherry/berry fruits on the palate. It’s a good, easy drinking red developed for a good cause and would be perfect fare for your next big steak night out with the lads.

Del Diablo Loco ‘Angel of the Abyss’ McLaren Vale Shiraz 2008 ($50)

our view

WEDNESDAY

NIGHT LOCALS

NIGHT

‘Del Diablo loco’ translates as ‘the crazy devil’. Throw ‘angel of the abyss’ in there and you could be forgiven for thinking you’re in for a horror night of epic proportions! Deep, intense, seductive, supple, brooding, fleshy… all these descriptors easily spring to mind as I recall my thoughts as to how good this wine is. Some would say this type of powerful red is out of favour, but sometimes you just need a red like this and most would find this absolutely dee-lish… go on, get crazy and check it out!

$20

Wirra Wirra ‘Wood Henge’ McLaren Vale Shiraz 2007 ($35)

Dense, layered, stridently regional characters hold sway with bucket loads of richness, and complex spice and earthy mineraliness. Dark, plummy/choc fruits abound yet are all kept in check by the soft, but grippy tannins and integrated oak. I loved this, just the kinda wine you hanker for on a cold winter’s evening with the right food…

THE ANNUAL splash!dance Festival returns to Geelong Performing Arts Centre in the July school holidays, providing four days of dance fun for the whole family.

Organised by Geelong Dance Network Inc. and Geelong Performing Arts Centre with support from the City of Greater Geelong, the festival also includes a masterclass series and an intensive

an ideal and unique natural setting for your special occasion

programme, enabling local dancers to access expert tuition and learn new skills. For those who just like to have a little fun with their families, the GPAC foyer will be transformed into a Storybook Kingdom from 4pm on Thursday (July 1). Participants are encouraged to wear party costumes and enjoy dance, music and art workshops. This free holiday event is perfect for pre-primary and primary aged children. Also geared towards budding young dancers is the Kids Dance Day Out on Friday (July 2). This come-and-try activity will have children dancing, singing and performing before they know it. Budding dancers aged 6-12 have an opportunity to try differing dance styles, including tap, funk and hip-hop from 1pm-4pm in the Alcoa Studios. The splash!dance Festival will come to a close with the Geelong Dance Showcase on Sunday (July 4) in the Ford Theatre.

More than 300 junior and senior students from regional dance groups will join together to present this spectacular showcase. GPAC general manager, Jill Smith, said she was pleased to welcome back the splash!dance Festival and urged local dancers and novices alike to join in the activities. “The unique thing about splash!dance is that it caters equally to serious dancers and those who want to learn more, and those who just like to dabble,� she said. “Importantly, it also nurtures the interest and talent of our region’s very young dancers, who may just go on and perform on a national stage, thanks to a little encouragement from splash!dance.� Tickets for the Australian Choreographic Competition, Showcase Concerts and Kids Dance Day Out are available at GPAC Box Office on 5225 1200 or online at www. gpac.org.au

See some remarkable skills on show at GPAC

Ann Webb’s The nature of Space 2010, acrylic on canvas.

Courtesy of the artist

Explore the nature of art

THERE is only a month left to see the the Geelong Gallery’s Nature and beyond exhibition. The exhibition shows works from a group of Geelong artists – Glenys Bryant, Patsy Bush, Andrea Clifford, Debra Jackson, Jan Synot and Ann Webb – who share a studio in the city. The six artists draw on their diverse backgrounds in visual arts, science and

education to create a diverse variety of paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture. The exhibition, Nature and beyond, includes works in which the artists interpret and transform our urban landscape and natural environment. The works explore the colour and form of flowers; the humorous interaction between animals and man; the relationship

of man to his built environment; and the nature of space within the picture plane and the wider universe. The exhibition will run through until July 25 with free entry. The gallery is located at Little Malop Street, and is open daily from 10am-5pm, with guided tours of the collection available from 2pm Saturday.

SO, YOU think you can dance? Think again! Untrained – a fun, quirky and irreverent theatrical exploration of skill and personality – comes to GPAC as part of the 2010 Shaken & Stirred season: a series of performances that promise audiences something a little bit different. In Lucy Guerin Inc’s Untrained, four men take to the stage. Two are highly skilled, experienced dancers who have performed in theatres across Australia; two have no dance training whatsoever and have been selected from a group of likely lads in Dandenong. The complex, refined movements that one can do with ease, another can only try and approximate. It’s how they execute them that displays an individual portrait of each man's character, as well as unavoidable comparisons between the participants. Untrained questions our ideas about what is worth watching in a performance. This casual theatrical exploration presents four men,

in a humorous and courageous examination of themselves and their art. All performers are given the same instructions. How they execute them constructs an individual portrait of each man and also an unavoidable comparison between them. This evolution of information, built up through units of action, points out what they have in common and where their physical histories set them apart. This humorous and courageous examination of dancers and their art could only come from the highly influential Melbourne-based Lucy Guerin, who has built her reputation on movement invention and choreographic structure. Lucy Guerin Inc presents Untrained in the Drama Theatre at GPAC for two shows only on Friday, July 2 and Saturday, July 3 as part of the 2010 Shaken & Stirred season. Tickets are available by phoning the box office on 5225 1200 or online at www.gpac.org.au

Jury to wake up the blues club

Tuesday 22 June 2010

ONE OF Australia’s most enduring musicians will take to the stage at Geelong’s Sleepy Hollows Blues Club on Sunday. Sydney-based Wayne Jury has more than 30 years of experience behind him and has opened for some of the biggest names around, including blues greats Robert Cray, Albert Collins, Buddy Guy and the legendary BB King. Jury, however, is well aware that experience can mean little in the music business if you are just surviving; you need the talent to back it up and that is something he has plenty of. While he may not be a household name, his solo performances leave little doubt of his talent and ability as a singer and songwriter. Jury set off at the age of 16 playing several sets a night, seven nights a week up and down Australia’s east coast. Since then he has played hundreds of gigs in Sydney and all around the

country, making his mark on dozens of great pubs and other venues with his soul-drenched voice, great songs and distinctive guitar style. But Jury is a man who isn’t easily satisfied – and he is always looking to keep things fresh and introduce new sounds. The members of his trio change from gig to gig and for the Sleepy Hollow Blues Club he wanted to do something different – again! So on Sunday he will be joined by Rory Millar (harmonica, vocals) and drummer RusCo (Russell Coleman, ex-AC/DC, Stevie Wright, Tinsley Waterhouse) and special guest Sandy Brady on bass. “You’re gonna hear some new acoustic solo stuff I’ve recently recorded plus some duo stuff with Rory Millar,� Jury said. “We’ll add some drums – RusCo and I have been digging some great grooves

together so when we add RusCo to the duo it lifts up a notch. “Then, later on the wonderful Sandy Brady and RusCo will lay down some tracks for Rory and I to get up a full head of steam on. “So, yeah, we’ll do some stuff we’ve been rehearsing and we’ll kick some new things around as well. “So expect some funky soul blues as well as some lowdown and dirty electric blues. I don’t know about you but we’re gonna have some fun.� Jamming will start at the club from 3pm – so don’t forget your instruments – while the barbecue will kick off from 6pm and the Wayne Jury Three playing from 6pm-9pm. The club is BYO and is located at Geelong Trades Hall, 127 Myers Street, Geelong (enter from rear, off Smyth Place, via Little Ryrie Street). Entry is $7 for non-members and $5 for members $5.

Hit the Road to Tamworth Tuesday 22 June 2010

LOCAL songwriters and being encouraged to reach for the sky and submit their lyrics as entries in the Telstra Road to Tamworth talent development programme. The Surf Coast and Bellarine are renowned for producing quality musicians, and the Road to Tamworth aims to open the window to a network of music industry professionals, including songwriters, publishers, established artists and industry organisations. The Telstra Road to Tamworth continues to broaden its appeal to aspiring independent musicians by keeping up with the ever-changing music industry. This year the programme is being expanded to include both traditional and alternate country genres that may include folk, blues, roots, rock and pop influences. Telstra Country Wide local area general manager, Geelong and Surf Coast, Jodi Manion said the programme had been nurturing aspiring young musicians from regional and rural

Road to Tamworth ambassadors, The McClymonts.

Australia since its inception in 2004, unearthing amazing talent like Jessica Mauboy who was crowned the inaugural

winner. “There are so many talented young music artists in this country, and the

Telstra Road to Tamworth aims to provide them with an opportunity to explore their craft, receive professional industry advice, and give them the best chance to achieve their musical dreams,” she said. As Telstra Country Wide celebrates its 10-year anniversary, a series of 12 heats will be held across every state and territory, as part of a number of local festivals and events – with the local heat being held during the Royal Geelong Show on Saturday, October 16. Road to Tamworth ambassadors, The McClymonts, who are currently touring the United States, encouraged all local songwriters to enter. “It was really great to see the progression of young musicians who took part in last year’s Telstra Road to Tamworth – from when they entered the programme through to their performance at the finals in Tamworth,” said Brooke McClymont. “They had grown as artists in such a short time just by getting good advice from industry professionals and

networking with other musicians. You could see how valuable the experience was for them.” Winners of each of the heats and digital heat, together with the four best songwriters, will receive a trip to ‘Boot Camp’. ‘Boot Camp’ is a two-day musical mentoring workshop in Sydney that will culminate with a live semi-final performance as part of the Sydney Telstra 500 V8 Supercars event on Saturday, December 4. The top seven performers and top three songwriters chosen at the semifinal will progress to the final in January 2011 in Tamworth. The winning songwriter and performer of the Telstra Road to Tamworth final will each receive a 12-month bespoke mentorship package, including a recording session in Nashville, domestic and international gigs, publicity, media training and support from a network of music industry professionals.

Adrian Chiappini and his apprentice Josh Jakubowski are plumbers who are making a difference.

WATERSOURCE PLUMBING

EVER wondered how much water is wasted every time you brush your teeth, take a shower or flush the toilet? Adrian Chiappini is one plumber who recognises how crucial ‘green plumbing’ is in today’s environmentally conscious society. “Plumbing sits at the forefront of being environmentally aware. You’ve got to save water to look after the environment,� Chiappini said. His business, Watersource Plumbing, has been operating for 25 years, meaning Chiappini has seen his fair share of faulty faucets and imperfect pipes. The Torquay resident and his apprentice, Josh Jakubowski, are fit to tackle any plumbing job

along the Surf Coast. “We do all sorts of plumbing work; big jobs, small jobs and everything in between,� he said. Chiappini’s specialties include green plumbing services such as installing and servicing rainwater tanks, water saving shower heads and washers. He also focuses on solar hot water systems and replaces old hot water systems with highly efficient new technology that isn’t as detrimental to the earth. Watersource Plumbing is on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For more information, phone Adrian Chiappini on 0415 088 744.

JUNE 22 - JUNE 28 2010 Are there too many chiefs and not enough Indians in your life at the moment? Capable Capricorns love to be boss and call the shots, but cooperation and compromise are the keys to successful communication with loved ones this week. Resist the urge to be judgmental. Instead, take a stroll in the shoes of others for a while.

Rams rush in where angels fear to tread! With the Lunar Eclipse falling in your career zone, you’ll be obsessed about a work project and won’t rest until it’s done and dusted. Take your time – not everyone is in as much of a hurry as you are. Pace yourself (especially on Thursday and Saturday) and be wary of arguing just for the sake of it.

Saturday’s Lunar Eclipse shines the spotlight on power issues within a major relationship. You both need to compromise, otherwise the emotional tug-of-war will accelerate. Singles – have you been looking for love in all the obvious places? Perhaps it’s time to crawl out of your Crab cave and be a little more adventurous?

Lazy Librans beware! With the Sun moving into your career zone, get ready for a month of taking care of business – and working overtime. Saturday’s Lunar Eclipse stirs up your home zone, so it’s not the ideal time to get the long lost relatives together for a reunion, or to bring up sensitive issues with fractious family members.

Do you fantasize about upsizing your lifestyle? Saturday’s Lunar Eclipse stimulates your aspirations zone, so make sure you have the cold, hard cash to finance these super-sized dreams. In the current economic climate, small and sustainable is the sensible way to live. Let non-essentials go and focus on what’s really important to you.

Your charm meter is stuck on high this week, as Venus boosts your charisma and people skills. You’ll be at your persuasive best as you charm the birds out of the trees and inspire others with your passion and enthusiasm. Use it to your advantage – but don’t abuse it. Just remember – a little Leo charm goes a long way!

Communication is highlighted as you throw yourself into activities like teaching, public speaking, serious study, intense discussions or neighbourhood negotiations. Travel is also likely (especially on the weekend) but try to slip out of Scorpio control-freak mode and into flexible mode, as plans are likely to be altered at the last minute.

Aquarians are masters of distraction, but avoiding responsibilities won’t work this week – it will only delay the inevitable. With hasty Mercury/ Uranus energy about on Saturday, you need to apply the brain brakes, and think (carefully) before you speak. Otherwise you’ll say the wrong thing at the wrong time, and unintentionally upset others.

Issues involving your finances could come to a head over the coming week. If your money is tied up with someone else (either personally or professionally) then make sure you adopt a conservative approach and keep the lines of communication open. Mercury moves into Cancer on Friday, so it’s time to learn more about your emotional self.

Saturn’s back in your sign and times are tough, but don’t let that stop you from doing all you can do and being all you can be. Jupiter jolts you into action midweek, and gives you the extra energy you need to power through projects. Be inspired by birthday great Helen Keller (born on June 27) “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.�

Sagittarians are the binge spenders of the zodiac and, with Saturday’s Lunar Eclipse activating your money zone, your self-control is at an all-time low. So avoid a spot of weekend window shopping – and temporarily misplace your credit card. You’ll have a successful week if you channel your abundant energy into productive pursuits.

You’ve gotta have friends – and lots of them. Don’t let shyness or lack of confidence stand in the way of forming wonderful connections with others this week. It’s time to nurture friendships and tell loved ones how you feel. On the weekend, passion is combined with power games, and romance is coupled with responsibility.

World Cup fever hits Torquay

SCHOOLS from throughout the region converged on Torquay last week to kick off the Surf Coast Schools World Cup. The cup is the largest junior sports competition held in the Surf Coast Shire, and showcases the talent on offer at primary school level.

Aimed at students in Years 3 through to 6, the cup drew more than 700 children, who took part in ninea-side games. To add to the feel of the tournament, schools took on the name of a World Cup nation, with Bellbrae playing as Serbia and Torquay as Australia.

SURFCAST June 23rd.-26th. 

Clockwise from left: Mount Duneed Primary School students cheer on their team-mates, Winchelsea students get ready for some practice between games, Bellbrae students Joanna Zen, 9, and Sarah Rivalland, 9, enjoy a break between games, Bellbrae Year 4 students, Natalie Hunt and Petra Crosby, both 10, get ready for their next game.

Men’s competition Last Wednesday one of our talented youngsters Deyen Lawson shot 6 under the card. Playing off a handicap of plus 3, Deyen won the competition with 39 points from Austin Swain. It’s great to see Deyen at the top of the leaderboard as he has been putting in plenty of hours on the practice fairway and time spent refining his short game. It’s a family affair at The Sands with brother, Tybin, part of the golf operations team in The Pro Shop. There’s plenty of rivalry between the siblings with Tybin also a talented golfer playing off a handicap of 2. A fair weather golfer, hopefully Tybin will brush the cobwebs of his clubs soon and give his brother a run for his money! Dean Bernasconi won NTP on the 7th, while John Ramsey took the honours on the 13th hole. It’s been a good week for Dean as he took out the black tee challenge on Friday with 31 points. On Saturday, Bruce Hay reigned supreme with 40 points,

was the best corporate team and the AGC girls were the only ladies and therefore won by default. Your scribe had the longest ladies’ drive on the 2nd with a shot that traveled for more than the normal distance in the air! Queen’s Birthday While Col Abery OAM was off celebrating we had a few golfers happy to wander the course in the drizzle. Sandy Favre had the best score for the ladies with 35 points and in the men’s Darren Hawkins had the best score with 40 points winning C grade. Luke Slater won A grade with 36 points and Alan Baker won B grade with 36 points as well. NTPs were Darren Hawkins, Adam Kennedy, Les Cooper and Ron Washington. Midweek golf The men managed to get their day of golf in on Wednesday with a fairly dry par round. John Mooney had a day out scoring 5 up to win A grade. Tony McGlashan won B grade with 4 up and in C grade, Brian Virtue won with 1 up on a countback from Gary Shugg. Frank Fowler had a hole on one on the 16th and I wouldn’t even try to guess

what club he used. Other NTPs from Gary Shugg, Paul Eddy and Barry Walker were close but not close enough. A few of the women managed a couple holes before the event was called off. The wind was even blowing over the electric buggies and at least one of the ladies was wet through after only two holes played. Jean Russell Event The pennant ladies wrap up was played at Lonsdale on Friday. Dinah Kosky and Sue Britnell led the charge winning the div 2 nett event with Barb Croaker and Helen Stewart runners up. Vida Brenner and Margot Parton also did well, a close third in the Div 1 nett. For the diary Remember we have the President’s and Captain’s Dinner on Saturday, June 26. Jill Moodie, from Target will be our guest speaker and we will be acknowledging our members that have clocked up more than 30 years with the club. For July we have a “Christmas in July’ on the last Saturday. Booking for both can be made through the office.

FROM THE PRO SHOP

THERE’s been plenty of activity at the club this week, despite the inclement weather. Players have braved the wet and windy conditions and managed some great scores.

The Sands Golf Club

79

edging out Gordon Muir on a count back. The pennant players took a clean sweep of the NTPs with Brent Kahle winning the 5th, Deyen Lawson the 7th, James Eccles the 13th and Matt Bruce the 17th. Pennant The pennant season got underway last Sunday with mixed results for The Sands. The Division 1 team travelled to Curlewis and had to play the host club. At the end of the day the result was all square with three and a half wins each. Next week they take on Portarlington, and team captain Craig Corker will be hoping they can record their first win. Division 3 had a great start to the season, with victory over Queens Park at Winchelsea. The Sands came away with four matches to one with some convincing wins by the team. Women’s competition After a night of storms and howling wind, the morning looked promising for the Thursday competition. Sending the field off, the trusty pro shop staff ensured the players that the fine weather would hold‌. until they looked at the radar on the computer screen. Shortly after, the heavens

opened, and torrential rain forced the cancellation of the competition. After a few lattes, the time was well spent with the models refining their cat-walk style in readiness for the Fashions on the Fairway night to be held next Tuesday. Matching the music and the models has been a challenge, but fun!!! Tickets are still available from the pro shop, men and women welcome. The women did get some golf in with a small field playing on Saturday. It’s great to see that the numbers of women playing on Saturday is slowly increasing. Deb Hocking won the day with 33 points. Future events Next Monday, the SWDLGA Championships will be held at The Sands, played over 27 holes. It will be great to see the districts’ top women golfers tackling the Sands layout. The next day, the action will be off the course with the fashion parade while there’s been a great response to the anniversary golf and dinner to celebrate the club’s 6th birthday. This will be held on Sunday, July 3 and bookings are to be made through the pro shop.

WITH C H R I S B A R R

WINTER has poked its nose in and the early morning golfers have had to rug up and check they have the brolly the in the bag. There are benefits of course to the wet weather as the course is magnificently green and the winter grass is sprouting daily. We need to be aware course care as it gets wetter and watch for wear and tear, especially near the greens, filling divots is important and remember to use the seeded sand on the tee’s. Keep an eye out on the 14th green where a couple of foxes have been spotted playing lately As we suffer through the cold and wet through the glory of television we can have our eyes on the summery courses in the northern hemisphere where the big tournaments are just beginning. The action is at Pebble Beach California this week and the British Open at St Andrews is just around the corner. It was guest day for the men on Wednesday and the course was busy with 170 players. Geoff Lamont and his friend Peter Robinson form the sands had the honors from Greg Brinsmead and his guest Rob Dickens from Anglesea. NTPs

went to Ron Haberle Terry Lee David Strickland and Max Simpson. There was barely a breath of wind on Saturday and the scores were excellent for a par round. Andy Moore topped the table and won B grade with +5. James Deans won in A grade with +3. Ian Chapple headed the C grade list and Jos Bedem had the D grade honor. Geoff Grayling took the jackpot and NTP went to John Evans, Matt Malone(x2) and Peter Kaan, I must mention the 2 eagles we had last week, Ron Haberle and Andy Clark were wearing big smiles both having scored an eagle on the 12th From the women’s room President Pamela was back on deck this week and obviously rejuvenated as her first shot of the day landed only meters from the pin on the 10th. Pamela will be representing Torquay at the playoff for the Rene Austin pin on Monday so I hope her forms stays hot; good luck Pamela.

There are lots of events on around the district in the next few months and if you are in the mood for getting out and about, Nathan has his clinics starting up again this week to make sure you are ready. Booking are available for The bus trip to country teams day on August 30 contact Sarie if you want to be aboard The event will be on at Sanctuary Lakes this year so not too far to travel. The June monthly medal was up for grabs this week and even though it was cold the rain stayed away. Lyn Belevitch won the 9-hole comp and took the NTP. Sarie and Bev Appleton picked up the jackpots and NTP went to Wendy Johnson, Mandy and Joye Burton. Micha won the putting with 29. Divisional winners were Joan Sparkes, Lyn Wilson Chris Barr and Mandy Buckley. I went home like the cat that got the cream with the medal. The Saturday girls were out in numbers on such a nice afternoon. Julie Rogers finished with an excellent +6 the winner over Helen Sceney and Andrea Stadler. Helen Haberle, Lyn Moore and Heather Dixon took the NTPs.

FROM THE

mat WITH ANGLESEA BOWLS CLUB

UNFORTUNATELY the bowls scheduled for the Saturday and Monday of the Queen’s Birthday weekend were cancelled due to rain. However, several Barefoot Bowlers had an enjoyable day on the Sunday with more favourable weather conditions. On Tuesday, 18 ladies had an enjoyable game of bowls. Blessed with fine weather, the match committee issued the challenge – the skippers and leads had to play in the reverse position. I believe some hidden talent was discovered – I hope the selectors took notice!

Rampage at The Quay SURF Coast men’s teams went on a scoring spree at The Quay on the weekend, recording their biggest wins of the year against Plenty Valley. The first grade outfit chalked up a 9-0 victory, while the reserve grade team also shut the Lions out, winning 5-0.

FFV Provisional 2 men: Surf Coast (9) v Plenty Valley (0) Although they kept trying until the very end, the whole Plenty Valley team must have shared the sentiments of their goalie who was overheard late in the second half hoping for the whistle

to put them out of their misery. Surf Coast are now league leaders by four points, and are nine points plus a big goal difference ahead of third in the race for the vital top two promotion positions.

FFV Provisional 2 men’s reserves: Surf Coast (5) v Plenty Valley (0) Women: Surf Coast (1) v Barwon (3) In spite of a superb performance and a 1-1 scoreline at half-time, the Surf Coast women were unable to capitalise on their opportunities, finishing 3-1 down to Barwon.

Female footy fires up BY ELEANOR WOODS

U16 girls: Surf Coast (2) v Surfside (3) The under 16s girls suffered their first loss of the year, going down 3-2. Without any real teamwork or focus, the girls found themselves down 2-0 by half-time. However, they dug deep and fought back magnificently in the second half, completely outplaying Surfside.

APOLLO Bay’s netball team is gearing up to swap the round ball for an oval this weekend. The Hawks are set to tackle team-mates and other female community members on the football field on a game of Australian football. “It’s going to be a great day,” said Bec Allen, who has helped organise the game. “Heaps of girls are getting involved and it will be heaps of fun.” Allen, a coach and A-grade player for the club, is organising the event to help raise funds for The Hawks’ end of year trip. “We are getting stuck in and trying to raise as much as we can so we can go somewhere nice this year,” she said. The day, which will see teams made up of Hawks netball players and other Apollo Bay girls aged over 16 get down and dirty on the football field, is a chance for the public to get out, have fun and support their local sports club, Allen said. “We are constantly looking for fun ways to involve all of the girls, families and supporters of this small club, in coming together to raise some money and have a laugh,” she said. It has been six years since the last Apollo Bay girls’ football showdown but, according to Allen, the girls are fighting fit and ready to take each other on. The match will be held at the Apollo Bay Recreation Reserve this Sunday, starting at 12.30pm, with the entry fee a gold coin donation to support the club. “Being a small coastal club, we do not have a lot of funds and therefore are working hard towards obtaining some assistance from our local community to support the big match,” Allen said.

U14 girls: Surf Coast Yellow (3) v Surfside (4) It was a disappointing outcome for the Yellows, who started slowly and let two easy goals in from Surfside early in the match. Things improved when Sophie Razmara and Molly Cooper were brought on and the game started turning around for the Yellows. Although most of the second half was played in Surfside’s half, the Yellows just couldn’t seem to score, despite a number of opportunities. U14 girls: Surf Coast Blue (0) v Kardinia (3) The week’s break saw both Surf Coast and Kardinia off to slow start. The second half started more promising with most players getting on board, and while kicking into a stiff breeze started to pass the ball more effectively. However, two late goals let the team down. U12 girls: Surf Coast (4) v Bell Park (1) The legends welcomed a new addition this week with Jemma filling in for the loss of Mikayla. The girls got off to a great start with the Annie and Taylah scoring in the first five minutes. Bell Park picked their act up in the second and was much more competitive and it was only Jade ‘Hirdy’ Feakes who managed to split the defence twice to score on both occasions.

Olivia Carroll, 8, with her 32-centimetre bream taken out of Painkalac Creek.

In complete contrast, under this Labor Government, there have been moves to ban the fishing of both the mako and thresher sharks without any consultation with recreational fishers. Right around Australia, the Labor Government is running a marine bioregional planning process that is set to lock recreational fishing out of enormous areas of our coastline without any more consultation than lip service. This government is out of touch with the average mums and dads who want to take their kids down to the beach and have a fish on their day off. It is out of touch with the estimated four million recreational fishers that will rise up against their Labor representatives if not listened to. We are now left with no choice but to formalise rallies prior to the upcoming federal election. The announcement of more restrictions on recreational fishing is imminent – now is the time to make a stand. Now is the time to add your name to the list of disgruntled anglers on the sign-up sheet available online or at most tackle stores.

THIS week I have been asked to publish the following media release in the interests of all anglers. The release is on behalf of WE FISH – a campaign launched by www.victoriansaltwaterfishing.com earlier this year to form a united front for recreational fishermen. The release reads: WE FISH have tried to remain politically neutral, and we have endeavoured to speak to all major political parties. We have asked the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry (DAFF) and Minister Burke about funding, and were told point blank that: The Government will not pay the wages of an individual or group who can lobby against them.” Yet this Federal Government lays down the welcome mat for fringe groups such as the Pew Foundation and Humane Society International (HSI). This has included inviting them to join Australian delegations to international marine conventions, while recreational fishing bodies are not even consulted. The Department of Environment also provided ongoing audience to the Pew Foundation in its misguided quest to declare the Coral Sea as a no-take zone followed. zo one – a position ppos osit itio ionn Minister Mini Mi nist ster er Garrett Gar G arre rett tt blindly bblind ndly ly fol o lowed

Is taping or bracing the best option? BY LUKE SPETCH, PHYSIOTHERAPIST

TO TAPE or to brace, that is the question. Many an athlete or sports trainer will be faced with this dilemma. Taping and bracing are both used to: • Protect an injured area during recovery and return to sport • Prevent uninjured areas from being injured in the first place. At this stage there is little evidence to support the role of taping to prevent initial injury in the shoulder, elbow, spine

and knee. There is, however, significant evidence to support the role of bracing and to a lesser extent taping, to prevent re-injury of a previously sprained ankle. Let’s look at the for and against. Taping • Tape can provide appropriate support • Poor taping techniques can cause further injury or skin reactions • Some athletes are allergic to tape. Bracing • Can provide the ankle with similar or

better support than taping • The brace may slip but can be tightened easily • The athlete who is sensitive to tape will tolerate a brace more easily. The choice between tape and brace then, needs to be made on an individual basis and will often come down to personal preference. Physiotherapists can assist athletes to make an appropriate decision as well as guiding other aspects of an athlete’s rehabilitation.
