It’s time to support your local Roleystone Scouts, who are selling waterproof personal first aid kits for $15 each, to raise money for the Queensland flood victims. They are great for hiking, and can be kept in your car or even in your schoolbag. If you would like to buy one, go to page 10 for further information. The first Roleystone Markets, held on Sunday the 3rd of March, were an unquestionable success! The Valley Reporter managed to capture the essence of the event in an array of photographs, shown in the centre spread on pages 16 and 17. The next market will be the Winter Market held from 9:00am to 1:00pm on Sunday the 9th of June, so don’t forget to mark it down on your calendar. Recently, the Roleystone community has experienced a troubling bout of graffiti, with “tagging” defacing local business premises and bush shelters. The City of Armadale manages graffiti through a multi-strategy approach. See page 19

As you are probably aware, there has been considerable delay on the issue of the skate park, due to our councillor’s apathy regarding it. In place of this longstanding agenda, their priorities have been clearly demonstrated by their ongoing push for astronomical funds for the construction of toilets at Borrello Park, as well as focus on the men’s shed and community garden. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for the men’s shed and community garden, but the skate park has been fought over and consulted for nearly 8 years now, with solid approval and fund allocation since June 2011. On the 5th and 11th of March, I attended council meetings, with the intention of keeping the councillors honest, accountable and active in regards to the issue. I reminded them of the delay that has occurred, despite being reassured by them in May of 2012 that there would be no delay, due to Master Planning. I do not intend to give up on this matter, and will not show any compromise on the size and scope originally agreed upon for the skate park. I feel that our two councillors have made it harder to achieve the community’s goals regarding the skate park, and that it would be very unfair for them to reduce the funds meant for our youth agendas. The minutes and agendas from the meetings are available on the council website. Please look them up to inform yourselves, and to see the questions I have put to the council on numerous occasions. Deb Wallis, Roleystone. Roleystone Skate Park Project Pushes Forward On March the 11th, the Council unanimously endorsed the Cross Park “Master Plan”, which includes the skate park at the new roadside location opposite the Roleystone Shopping Centre. Now that the location for the skate park has been finalised, the actual construction can commence. The skate park redevelopment was first proposed as a Councillors’ item by us,

followed by a petition and the combined support from both ward Councillors. It took a further year for the funding of the skate park to be finalised and endorsed by the Council in June of 2011. After an arson event, the siting was questioned, which contributed towards the additional “Master Planning” process of year-long consultations, community meetings, workshops and public forums. Things may appear to move slowly, but there has been a lot of effort put in behind the scenes from the community, Councillors and City officers alike. The new location is a very popular and positive result for both the youth and the older community. The majority of skate park users are genuine, but are hampered by the actions of a few antisocial kids. By putting the skate park right next to the road and opposite the shops, where lots of people can see, the skate park will be a safer, friendlier place for the youth to hang out. This natural surveillance, design/ location theory is taken from “Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design.” One of the considerations for the recommended Skate Park location towards Jarrah Road was that this option, as well as providing passive surveillance from the street, was to enable areas to be developed as the site for a Community Garden and co-located Men’s Shed. The existing skate park design draft will be adjusted to fit the new location, but will contain all the same design elements as previously determined by the youth community workshops. The actual dates of construction are dependent upon the design adjustment and the work schedule of the Convic Skateparks Pty Ltd construction company, who construct most of the Local Government skate parks. We look forward to seeing the skate park construction start, as this is the first step in the creation of our community hub - a place for all residents to feel safe, welcomed and proud of. Caroline Wielinga and Grant Nixon.

While most of Perth’s young Little League Baseball players are taking a well earned break after a long hot season, things are getting busy for young Roleystone resident Ben Warrington. At just 11 years of age, Ben played over 125 games of Tee-Ball and Baseball at the Roleystone Tee-Ball & Baseball Club, before joining his older brother Jack at the Victoria Park/ Belmont club this season. Ben’s natural ability did not go unnoticed at his new club, when he was selected in the Swan Hills Charter side to compete at this year’s Little League State Championships, which will be held at Mirrabooka Softball Complex over the Easter weekend. This is a great opportunity for Ben, since last year’s winning team of the State Championships (Perth North) also took out the Australian title, and ended up in Taiwan representing Australia at the Asia - Pacific tournament. Had they taken out the title, their next stop would have been Williamsport USA and the Little League World Series. With the State Championships out of the way, Ben and his mum Jane will be packing their bags for Dubai and Hong Kong, where Ben

Are your energy levels stopping you from doing what you would really enjoy? Are you: • Tired, exhausted, or lacking energy before the day even begins? • Irritable and moody? • Feeling like everything is stressful, and quickly gets on top of you? • Always wanting more sleep, like a quick nanna nap in the afternoon? • Spending the whole night tossing and turning? • Shouting at your loved ones? • Overwhelmed by your workload and what you do? • Struggling to find time to look after yourself? • Juggling too much at once whilst at everyone’s beck and call? • Surviving on coffee and sugar? • Constantly catching every cold and fly that comes around? Our hormonal systems, particularly our adrenal glands, take the brunt of our stress, often becoming overloaded by it, resulting in fatigue, stress and irritability. The thyroid, pancreas and female hormones may also influence our energy levels, along with other factors including insomnia, pain, poor digestion, too much or too little exercise, lack of personal time, excessive or lacking weight, and poor nutrition. If you would you like to feel alive, happy, and filled with energy, then book in to see Caroline now.

Setup begins at 5:30pm at the Roleystone Senior Football Club, located at Cross Park on Jarrah Road. Get there early to get your name on the board and to help set up the gear. Unfortunately the Roleystone Country Club could not donate their function room this year, but thankfully the Footy Club kindly offered their new revamped club room. The arrangements on this night are on trial, so please come along and show support for both the Musicians Club and the Roleystone Senior Football Club. The Club night on the 23rd will also be our official AGM. Deb de Boer, Dave Willis and Chris Horgan have offered to continue as President, Treasurer and Secretary (respectively) for 2013. If you would like to nominate for a position on the Committee, please write to prior to the 22nd of March 2013. As always, beginners are welcome to our club nights. Deb, Chris or Dave will gladly show you around if you ask. The Footy Club will be running their bar, and the Roley Fish and Chip shop should be open until 8:00pm. For more details and a map, see the website: www. Chris Horgan, RMC Secretary.

The Munda Biddi Trail, named after the Noongar words for “path through the forest”, will enter its completion phase in April of this year, at which point it will be the longest, most continuous off-road cycling track in the world. To mark the official launch, 26 cyclists from across Australia have been invited to embark on the Munda Biddi Epic 1000, a 1000km journey lasting from the 7th to the 28th of April. Starting in Albany, the trail will pass through Cosy Corner, Denmark, Walpole, Northcliffe, Pemberton, Manjimup, Donnelly Mill, Nannup, Donnybrook, Collie, Lake Brockman Tourist Park, Dwellingup, Jarrahdale, Carinyah and Mundaring. Cyclists on the Epic will be the first people in the world to ride the full length of the iconic trail. As it just so happens, one of these lucky few will be Roleystone local Peter Treasure, an avid road cyclist and mountain bike riding enthusiast. A year ago, he read an article about the Munda Biddi being close to completion, and joined the Munda Biddi Foundation in case of a launch event. About three months later, he received an email from the Foundation about the Munda Biddi Epic, and registered straight away. Despite being a FIFO worker in Newman, he makes time to cycle 50km a night out in the middle of nowhere. He has already taken on the challenge posed by smaller completed legs of the Munda Biddi Trail, and is very much looking forward to the Epic.

Jamboree Scouts Jordan and Briony adding the stickers to the First Aid Kits for Queensland flood victims.

In January of this year, 11,000 Scouts from around Australia (and some from around the world) went to Maryborough in Queensland for an Australian Jamboree. Our Roleystone Scouts were among those who spent 12 days of fun, adventure and challenge on the East Coast, doing activities like Laser Tag, water fun at Hervey Bay, a visit to Australia Zoo, a mud obstacle course, a Scavenger Hunt/Amazing Race through Maryborough, and so much more. Every night they were entertained by performers including Justice Crew, Jessica Mauboy, Reece Mastin and Cosentino. The Jamboree was truly a once in a lifetime experience for the Scouts, giving them the opportunity to challenge themselves and have fun as well. The community of Maryborough embraced the Scouting event whole-heartedly, pulling out all the stops to make the

kids feel welcome. Imagine all those Scouts wondering around a town the size of Busselton! The Jamboree has its own hospital, post office, and fire station. Only 10 days after coming home from our exciting adventure, we were horrified to learn about the devastation which the Maryborough community endured at the hands of the floods. Imagine if we had still been there, and they had to evacuate us all! The Scouts of WA are selling waterproof personal first aid kits for $15 each, to raise money for the Maryborough community. They are great for hiking, and can be kept in your car or even in your schoolbag. If you would like to buy one, please contact me on 0437 271 934, or you can find us on Facebook. Search for “WA Scouts First Aid Kits for Maryborough QLD”, and follow the link. Jo Meuli Group Leader, Roleystone Scouts.

Assisting animals at home with acupuncture By Dr Judith Congrene

the basis for treatment with acupuncture, Chinese herbal compounds, and Tui Na (Chinese massage). I have enjoyed the challenge of using the acupuncture and herbal compounds for treatment, which is all so different from the usual Western diagnosis and treatment process. The patients are usually quite calm and at home in familiar surroundings, which I find is a big advantage for alternative therapies. For the best results, a couple of treatments are needed to monitor the effects and further modify the treatment by using different acupuncture points and/or changing the herbal formula, if necessary. The outcomes have been very positive for patients needing relief from osteoarthritis, itchy skin and the general symptoms of geriatrics. Some animals have indicated their reluctance for needles, so I have used red light therapy on the acupoints as an alternative method, which has been well tolerated. It is very satisfying to have the flexible options for treatment so that the patient Jack a male bulldog suffering with severe pain from osteo care is individual and gives arthritis - recent reports from the owner note that he is now the best response. Since finishing my Veterinary Acupuncture studies in January, I have been kept busy applying the theory and practical aspects of Traditional Chinese veterinary Medicine (TCVM) to my furry patients at their homes. TCVM is a very complex medical system based on tongue and pulse diagnosis, as well as the physical symptoms observed in the patient, the history and information provided by the owner, the general demeanour and behaviour of the patient, and further differentiation of symptoms provided by palpation. All of this information provides the Chinese pattern diagnosis used as

oleystone Tee-Ball R and Baseball Club Inc. After several months of training and prestate carnivals, Roleystone U11’s States Squad participated in the TBAWA State Championships at Langley Park, which was held over the March long weekend. The team performed exceptionally, winning 4 out of 5 games, and scoring the second highest total runs over the 3 days, out of any of the 85 teams competing. The kids were inspirational, and were fine ambassadors for RTBC. We are all very proud of their efforts and achievement of being runners up in their division. The RTBC held its AGM and presentation day on the 10th of March. It was a great turnout, with the bouncy castle and gladiator duel making it fun for all. We were pleasantly surprised during our presentations when our sponsors Sam Saffioti from Roleystone Real Estate and John McSweeney from Creative Driveways & Fencing announced that they would be increasing their sponsorship for next season. Thanks to all our sponsors WJ & KS Automotives, Drill Rigs Australia, Roleystone Supa IGA, RoleystoneKarragullen Community Bank Bendigo Bank and Roleystone Community Chemist for their support over the past season. All committee positions were declared vacant at the AGM, and a new committee was voted in. The executive committee for 2013/14 is as follows: PresidentSandy Johnson, Vice President-Lee Miles, Secretary-Sue Cantwell , Treasurer-Michelle London and Registrar-Tanya Taylor. These wonderful people will undoubtedly serve the club well, along with the great support group of general committee members. Thank you to all new committee members who have volunteered, and much gratitude to everyone from last season for their hard work. Also, congratulations to Dylan Taylor for winning this year’s Perpetual Trophy.

The Roleystone Country Club’s new membership drive continues to be very successful, with over 60 new members joining in the last 6 weeks, many of whom are now using the Club’s facilities on a regular basis. It is good to see new faces, and just as much of a pleasure to welcome back previous members. Don’t forget, we are still offering special membership rates of only $22.00 per person until the 30th of June 2013, so if you know anyone who has been waiting to join the Club, now is the time! We now have meals and live music on Friday nights in the Windows on Wygonda Restaurant, meals are from 6.00pm onwards, then enjoy live music 7.30pm till 10:30pm. On Sunday the 17th of March, we held a St Patrick’s Day celebration with Irish music, meals, dancing, plenty of green beer, Guinness, and good times in general. Attendees had the chance to enjoy the

new green entertainment area on the lawn, and to catch up with all the improvements made to the outdoor areas, including the refurbished pergola. Over the last week, members and visitors to the Club would have also noticed the new paintwork on the front entrance, and the refreshed look of the Club’s gardens and premises. Special thanks must go to Doug and Paul, who have been working hard on the surrounds, as well as to Malcolm, who put in many hours on the bowling greens. Whilst on the topic of Bowls, I believe congratulations are in order for our Ladies Bowls 2nd Division, who have been promoted to 1st Division. Well done! Our Men’s teams also had a good year from all reports. I look forward to catching up with as many of the members as I can over the next month over a quiet drink or two. Michael Hansen, President.

On Friday the 15th of February, the year 6 students from Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School in Kelmscott attended a leadership retreat at Lumen Christi College. We found out what it is like being a leader and what qualities you have to have to become a good one. We started with a prayer service before telling our class mates what we will try to achieve this year, and what our expectations for they year are. We watched an interview with Adam Milson from the Perth Heat, who told us that you have to believe and always try your best at all times. After that, we wrote down five important ways to be a good leader, then created a circle of influence, which is all about how you talk to people. We had a fantastic day learning how to become great leaders! We are looking forward to our last year at Good Shepherd Primary School. Year 6 Leadership at Good Shepherd Catholic Primary Elouise and Liam, the Year 6 Head Girl and Head Boy of Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School, are learning alongside with their classmates about the importance and significance of leadership. They were elected last year, per tradition, and have 6 different prefects to help collect school fundraisers, speak at assemblies, and to show support to younger children. We also have special leadership teams to help

teachers and other students. Our Year 6 leaders began the year with a Leadership Retreat, where they got to learn firsthand about the roles and responsibilities that come from being a leader. The Sport and Special Events team is made up of the wonderful sports captains from our school. This team helps the sport teacher Miss Shaw to set up the school carnivals, special events and any other sporting functions. The Library team help Mrs Archibald, our Library Officer, to promote events happening in the library, for example the huge celebration of Book Week. The Environmental team keeps the school grounds looking neat and tidy, in addition to feeding our school animals. In particular, they have helped with our award-winning Bidjara Project. The Music and Liturgy team assist Mrs Newman and Sister Kath in organising whole school liturgical events, and to help classes celebrate liturgies each weak. As you can see, the year 6 students have a lot of responsibility this year, but we believe that they can be great role models for all the younger students at our school. Being leaders at our school will help prepare them for the future, so it is a responsibility they gladly accept. By Katelyn Craig & Jennifer Sharples.

E-Watch Update Week ending 12th March 2013 The last couple of weeks has seen our area subject to increased Police attention with a special operation within our boundaries. We subsequently saw a decrease in burglaries occur which is an excellent outcome. However, we still ask people to be particularly vigilant and report suspicious behaviour as it occurs on 131 444. The most prevalent suburbs for burglary offences are again Armadale and Kelmscott/Camillo. Most of the stolen vehicles are from offenders stealing keys from inside houses, frequently when doors and windows are unlocked in what could be termed a “soft” target. Report suspicious behaviour There used to be yearly operations such as “dob in a druggie” where people were encouraged for a week to phone in information to Police. We now ask that people do this all year round. Even if you think your information is low in value, it may be the small piece of the puzzle that we need to complete a picture. There are always opportunities to report suspicious behaviour/smells etc through crime stoppers and the general Police line as

The first Roleystone Markets, held on Sunday the 3rd of March, were an unquestionable success! It seemed like everyone from our fabulous Roleystone community made it out to enjoy the day. There was only just enough room on the oval to fit everyone in. The concert provided by the Roleystone Musicians Club was, as always, professional and had a lot of people up and grooving! (go to page 8 to see the photographs of The Redeemers, Hawkstone, Kim Bettenay and Izzy). The calibre of wares for sale were high, and a very positive reflection of markets to come. The food was delicious, and had many of us going back for more! Thank you to all who took the time to complete the survey. All the feedback received by the organisers was complimentary and positive. The organisers would like to congratulate Mr Fettes Falconer on winning the survey prize of a $50.00 account, generously donated by Roleystone-Karragullen Community Bank Bendigo Bank. The next market will be the Winter Market, held on Sunday the 9th of June, 9am-1pm. If you are interested in having a stall at the markets, please contact Stall Coordinator Catherine Schaefer on 0439 499 545. If you belong to a not-for-profit community group, and would like to be involved, contact Market Coordinator Maria Ford on 0407 985 319, email, or just like Roleystone Markets on Facebook.

Most Australians know about the Easter story - the events of Good Friday and Easter Sunday, when Jesus dies and rises again. Even today we get a long weekend as part of the celebrations. A less well known part of the story happens the weekend before, on Palm Sunday. On Palm Sunday of this year, Sunday the 24th of March, there will be a celebration in front of the skate park in Roleystone’s Cross Park, from 10:00am to 11:00am. Organised by local churches, this relaxed familyfriendly event will give you the chance to truly experience Palm Sunday with music, crafts, a free sausage sizzle, egg painting, and plenty of food. Find out why it might be more appropriate to eat chocolate donkeys for Easter, instead of chocolate rabbits and bilbies. You are welcome to join us to discover what Palm Sunday is about, and get a bit of background on the celebration of Easter. Gold coin donations to support the local chaplaincy is encouraged and will be appreciated.

Blessing a reminder to be safe on the roads this Easter For All Aspects Of Plumbing and Gas

With many residents heading off on holidays for Easter, local roads are being blessed to encourage everyone to take responsibility for ensuring the roads are safe over the Easter long weekend. The official blessing ceremony will take place at Memorial Park, Armadale on Saturday 23 March at 10am. The ceremony will remind the community that road safety is a joint effort and as road users, whether we are driving, riding or walking, we are responsible for our own choices and actions. Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said that Easter was a special time of the year, a time to spend with family and friends and remember the important things in life – including safely coming home from travelling on our roads. “The Blessing of the Roads campaign gives us the opportunity to promote the importance of road safety in the lead up to the Easter long weekend and school holidays. “No one wants to remember this Easter for tragic reasons so I urge you all to take road safety seriously, no matter how far you travel this weekend,” said Mayor Zelones. The Blessing of the Roads campaign pleads with all road users to make this Easter the safest on our roads. Remember to slow down, don’t drink and drive, wear seatbelts, ensure children are properly restrained, take breaks to avoid fatigue and turn off your mobile phones to avoid being distracted whilst driving.

Unplugged Acoustic Folk Roots and Blues In the afternoon of Sunday the 10th of March, the Roleystone Country Club hosted the latest session of Unplugged Acoustic Folk Roots and Blues. Although starting off a little bit slow, the session soon took off and got into full swing. It was really good to see more people coming along to take an active part in playing and performing. A big thanks to Dale for some really beautiful classical guitar work, which made a few of us feel like we should practice some more. This, with the return of one of WA’s best piano accordion players, whom used to grace us at the old venue, really brought the afternoon alive. Thanks to everyone who came along, and to The Country Club for their support. Please contact Mel for information on the next event by calling 0406 190 822 or sending an email to:

tank, which can save thousands of litres of water each year; • Linking your rainwater to the reticulation, laundry or toilets, which can save over twenty thousand litres of water per year; • Using water efficient showerheads, washing machines and dishwashers. “I see many people who don’t consider a rain water harvesting tank, because they’re worried about how it will look. With modern slimline designs and colour matching, limited space is no longer an excuse for not being able to have a water savings tank installed. Water efficient products and rainwater tanks don’t carry a high price tag anymore, and there is a huge number of designs. I am calling on the people of WA to truly celebrate National Water Day this year. It’s a day to focus on ways that you can make your home more water savvy, and a time to be grateful for the gift of clean drinking water which is available to us – it’s a resource we must treasure.” Ms Joubert is a keen environmentalist whom is actively involved in community gardens and waterwise projects which create public awareness and understanding of the importance of water in Perth.

Ingredients for the spaghetti: 1 zucchini 1 lebanese cucumber Ingredients for the salsa: 12 cherry tomatoes, washed and cut into quarters 10 black kalamatta olives, pitted and cut into slices 2 artichoke hearts, preserved in olive oil and lemon juice 6 small leaves of rainbow chard 1/8 cup of olive oil Sea salt or Himalayan salt, to taste 1 Tbs of garlic chives, chopped finely 1 Tbs of fresh basil, chopped finely 1 Tbs of fresh parsley, chopped finely 1 Tbs of sunflower seeds A sprinkling of pine nuts or sunflower seeds to garnish. Method for the salsa fresca: Chop all ingredients as indicated, leaving the seeds and pine nuts whole. Add them all to a bowl and mix well with salt and olive oil, before setting aside. Method for spaghetti: Using a spirali machine or small spiraliser, place first your zucchini then your cucumber in, then turn the device to create long spaghetti. Pile these up on a lovely looking large platter, then add the oil of your choice and massage gently into the pasta. When they are adequately lubricated with oil, top with the salsa fresca and garnish with fresh basil and pine nuts or sunflower seeds. You can drizzle extra olive oil over the top or add fresh chillies if you like.


Welcome to a new way of being and eating! To me, raw food is a lovely addition to our menu. I am not a ‘raw foodie’ though I do love some of the wonderful, creative ways in which we can play with our weekly organic produce. I feel the greatest gift we can give to ourselves is to listen to and feel what our bodies need. As the seasons turn, so too do our needs. If we tune into these needs and eat wholesome, real, nourishing foods, we will feel balanced, at peace and happy. The cravings will disappear, our health will improve, our skin will become clearer, and we’ll have higher energy levels too! Meditation becomes deeper, our intuition focuses, and we become generally happier. Recipes can be easily adapted and changed according to the seasons and what we have available in our home. So enjoy the creative process! This is a time to play with colour, texture and to let your joy fly! Contact me for further wholefood cooking and raw food classes on 0410 421 213, or email: You can also find me on Facebook at https://!/vanessajeanb. My next raw food class is from 11:30am to 2:30pm on Friday the 5th of April at the Roleystone Family Centre. For enrolments, please contact the Centre on 9496 1115, or send an email: info@roleyfamilycentre. Spaghetti Alla Salsa Fresca This simple dish was created one balmy night when I really felt like pasta, without eating real pasta. So, I took out my spirali machine, grabbed a few items from the fridge and veggie garden, and this culinary delight was born! My family and I love the fact that we can eat pasta without the heaviness of traditional carbohydrate pasta. Please do not think we never eat pasta, because we do, but we always have beautiful organic wheat, quinoa or spelt pastas awaiting our pleasure in the larder. Please note this recipe feeds two people, so increase the quantities if you’re cooking for more.

Roleystone resident in touching comedy with a lot of heart

PAGE 24 – © Kiwi Enterprises (WA) P/L as the Trustee of the Newland Family Trust t/as The Valley Reporter

The VALLEY Reporter proudly supports the ROLEYSTONE FAMILY CENTRE

The VALLEY Reporter proudly supports the ROLEYSTONE THEATRE

Roleystone resident Kim Martin is taking to the stage this April in a moving comedy from the author of the TV series “As Time Goes By”. Written by Bob Larbey and directed by Phil Mackenzie at the Roleystone Theatre, “A Month of Sundays” follows two residents living in an aged care home, facing the difficulties of growing old and enduring painful family visits with dignity and humour. Martin plays Cooper, who voluntarily left his family to avoid depending on them, only to watch his friend Aylott slowly drift into senility. “Cooper is an aging man who is physically deteriorating, but still has a very sharp mind,” Kim said. “He’s determined not to let his circumstances get him down, so he devises little flights of fancy with Aylott while also flirting with the nurses.” Martin has been involved in theatre for more than 40 years, as an actor, director, musical director, composer, playwright, lyricist and pianist. He has featured in shows in Northam, Kalgoorlie and Roleystone in particular, where he has been a regular for the past three decades. He has also worked with Attic Theatre and the Graduate Dramatic Society. In 1985, Martin won the Finley Award for Best Musical for “Esther”, and also scored the 2000 Best Play Award for “An Ideal Husband”. More recently, he has directed “The Crucible”, “The Club”, “Influence” and “The Teahouse of the August Moon” and he has also performed in “By Jeeves”, “Into The Woods” and

“Cosi”. “To me, ‘A Month of Sundays’ appealed because it’s a witty script by a writer with high credentials,” Martin said. “It deals with the problem of aging with humour and compassion, which is something everyone must face eventually. My main challenges are to convincingly move like someone who is quite restricted physically, and to balance the humour with a depth of feeling when needed.” “A Month of Sundays” will play at 8:00pm on April 5th, 6th, 10th, 12th and 13th, with a 2:00pm matinee on April 7th. Tickets are $16 for adults and $12 for concession. To book, call 9397 5730 or go through the online booking and payment system at au. Roleystone Theatre is located at 587 Brookton Hwy, Roleystone, opposite the Croyden Rd junction.

Are there any groups within the Roleystone Community who would like to do some fundraising by having a Roleystone Theatre charity preview performance? If so please contact President Bree Hartley. Basically, the Theatre charges a small fee to cover our costs of running the show that night, and then the group sell their own tickets (at any price they deem appropriate) to fundraise. Doesn’t have to be a charity as such, it could be a community group, School P&C etc. Contact can be made by email: enquiries@ or call 0402 014 666.

Copper (Kim Martin) is tended to by Nurse Walton (Kelmscott resident Bree Hartley).

The Go for 2 & 5 Araluen’s Fremantle Chilli Festival 2013 recently attracted record crowds to the Esplanade Reserve, Fremantle. Over 22,000 visitors enjoyed near-perfect conditions to explore all that was on offer. This represents some 10% above expectations and a whopping 45% higher than last year’s event that was conducted in temperatures hovering around 42C. “Having grown from humble beginnings at Araluen Botanic Park, Roleystone over 11 years ago, the Go for 2 & 5 Araluen’s Fremantle Chilli Festival now clearly ranks as one of WA’s premier cultural events. Its popularity has been driven by its unique character and culture of sensational taste treats, infectious vibrant entertainment, plants, produce, demonstrations and much more,” says Araluen Botanic Park Foundation General Manager, Rod Ross. “The move to Fremantle from Araluen Botanic Park in 2010 facilitated an expansion of this popular cultural theme and offers visitors greater accessibility options. The proximity of public transport plus the dayof-entry festival pass-out availability allows patrons the opportunity to explore and experience all that this great port city offers, “ he adds. Here’s what was on offer: • Over 80 stallholders (including some 25% new Chilli vendors) • Non-stop live entertainment all weekend family-friendly ‘Carnival’ atmosphere • Cooking demonstrations • The annual AMIC/MLA ‘Butchers Picnic’ • ‘Kids in the Kitchen’ interactive cooking activity • Mix94.5FM on-site broadcast marquee (Saturday only). • ABL Perth Heat Baseball Team • ‘Sow-A-Seed’ by Beyond Gardens • Non-Chilli lovers were also well catered for • Quirky Chilli Garden on display • Affordable entry fee and SmokeFree event. “This event continues to be embraced by the Port City community through the excellent support of the City of Fremantle and the vibrant local business community, many of whom leveraged off the ‘Chilli’ theme over the festival weekend.” “The Araluen Botanic Park Foundation sees this event as an excellent fundraising and promotional opportunity to assist its important cause at Araluen Botanic Park. All profits are invested in maintaining the culturally significant gardens.” The ‘chilli’ theme will continue into April at Araluen with a variety of fruiting chilli plants on display. Like to learn more? Simply phone 9496 1171 or visit the website and its dedicated Chilli Festival page – Join up for WA’s biggest survey for Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo! The fifth Great Cocky Count (GCC) will take place for one hour at sunset on Sunday 7 April. This communitydriven annual survey aims to count as many Carnaby’s as possible at their night-time roost sites on a single night each April. Roosts are places where blackcockatoos rest at night. Important information on the location of critical roosting habitat for cockatoos is collected through the GCC, and is increasing with every survey completed. The 2012 GCC found there has been a 40% decline since 2010 in the number of Carnaby’s in the Perth region, where we have three continuous years of

robust survey data. Survey sites are located all over south-west WA, so there’s a good chance there’s a spot nearby that needs you! Get more information and register as a volunteer at www. We need to find more night roosts for both white-tailed and red-tailed cockies. For more information about the GCC or to tell us about a roost site, contact Tamara Kabat on 9287 2204 or 0457 333177 or The Great Cocky Count is funded by Perth Region NRM through the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country program.

is your car looking a bit tired and in need of a makeover?

testimoniAl March 2013 Dear Maggie and Team, Life throws us many challenges and, after having had one challenge after the other, I wasn’t looking forward to the “hassle” of selling my much-loved home. Thanks to you Maggie Burke for making the whole experience completely “hassle free”. Your professional “nothing’s too much trouble” approach made everything run smoothly. I am very grateful for all the guidance, knowledge and information I received along the way. You and your team show the true meaning of the word “teamwork”! I would not hesitate to use or recommend your services in the future. Kind regards Sandra
