The Three Little Butchers: Gobbledygook At one time or another, we have all come across jargon, slang, polispeak, and other kinds of vocabulary which are only understood by specific groups of people. Recently, I was reading a most enjoyable article by Robert Drewe in the West Weekend, titled “Backward Butcher.” It was about butchers who used to say the name of meat backwards to confuse the customers. For example, lamb would become bmal (pronounced beemal). I was intrigued by it all, and asked our local butcher if he knew of it or about it. It turns out that he had, but apparently it was used mainly in Melbourne. As he gave this explanation, my memory immediately flashed back to my time as a lad in Norseman, between 1945 and 1950. I was only ten, I had a make-do bicycle, and did all the family messages. Back in those days when the gold mines were the prime money source, Roberts Street was very busy, with three butchers to cater for about 3000 folk. I had to do all the shopping for my grandmother Julia, my Aunty Monica, and mum. Since we didn’t have any worthwhile means of refrigeration, there were plenty of trips to the butchers. The trouble was that I had to go to each different butcher for the meat. Nanna Fox preferred “Butch Onslow”, “Dimer’s” was for Aunty Monica, and Mum’s favourite was “Lee’s”. All the butchers knew when I turned up that there was some problem, (too old, too tough, too thin!) but going to Onslow’s shop was the worst. Not only did I have to take the meat back, but also some sort of message. It may have gone like this: “Well Master Seabrook, what is it now?, too fat?” “Nanna said that it’s cut too thick, and wants it sliced thinner!” There would be giggles from the customers, smiles, and then chatter that I couldn’t understand or comprehend. After some laughter, eventually Butch would grab the parcel, pull out the meat, hold it up to some more babble and laughter, and then grab some other meat. After throwing it on a butcher’s paper, he would grab another piece, throw it on, and say “Tell Nanna Fox a special piece for her!”, and off I’d go. I’d scurry off to Nanna’s place, hoping it didn’t necessitate a return. Until now, I’d never understand the strange banter I’d 0412 953 638 Bookings Essential

Lina Hart Reserve Many of you may have noticed the new playground at Lina Hart Reserve, as you pass along Westbourne Road. The new playground comes as part of the City of Armadale’s Asset Management practice. The City has spent the last decade auditing and collating all of its assets and their estimated replacement costs into a database, with assets ranging from roads, footpaths and drains, to playgrounds, community halls and sports centres. Asset Management is an important part of sustaining infrastructure ,and money has been placed aside each year to enable the replacement of structures when they cannot be repaired. In the case of Lina Hart, the play equipment was assessed as a potential liability, and the move to the foreground

was to deter vandalism damage. The City is also drafting a Parks and Facilities Strategy, which aims to guide what facilities may be appropriate where. The Strategy categorises parks into “regional”, district” and “neighbourhood”. Regional parks such as Cross Park are generally accessed by car, and have significant amounts of infrastructure, like sports grounds and clubs, community halls, car parks, playground, skate park, toilets, BBQ’s, seats, and bins. Neighbourhood parks such as Lina Hart Park are accessed by foot, and have the least number of facilities. Each area would generally have one regional park, a few district parks, and many neighbourhood parks for people to walk to. In Roleystone, most of the local parks are bushland

reserves which were not historically cleared. This tradition has not left us with the usual hierarchy where playgrounds are within walking distance, meaning many of us are more likely to drive to our parks, and stay for longer. The Parks and Facilities Strategy does not recommend any further infrastructure for Lina Hart Reserve, but requests for fencing and bins have been passed onto Parks Department for assessment.

Drumming up a storm

A great time was had by all, raising $270 in the process.

Petra White recently had a drumming workshop in Southern River for parents, teenagers and children. In less than an hour, we were drumming up a storm of global rhythms together, and we were able to raise $270. What a great effort! It was a fabulous way for us all to come together, get really engaged, and to use our minds and bodies to de-stress. A big special thanks to Camille for telling us about CCD Thailand, I’m so looking forward to drumming with the kids there.

Welcome to Season 2013, the 40th Anniversary Season for Roleystone Junior Football Club! The first round of games are scheduled for the 13th and 14th of April. Roleystone is well represented across the age groups, with almost 168 Junior Registrations and a healthy 78 Auskickers on board so far. My first season as President of the RJFC has certainly been a steep learning curve to date, but we have a great bunch of volunteers, both new and old, happy and eager to assist in any way they can. We recently had our club Busy Bee prior to the season opener, and seeing in excess of 25 parents chipping in and helping out was very much appreciated. Without their help, we wouldn’t have a club that almost 250 local kids can call home. Team training has now been in full swing for 4 weeks, and from what we have seen on the track, we are optimistic about further success come finals time. This year, we have some new coaches as well as some returning coaches, and I would like to thank them all for coming on board for 2013. This year being the 40th Anniversary of RJFC, we have established a sub-committee which will start putting together a plan for a celebration of the club. We are hoping to gain the full support of the community, so as to ensure the event is a success. Watch this space! Good luck to all our players and coaches for the season – play hard, play fair and to all our supporters, I hope you enjoy the season. Adam Hancock, RJFC President.

Singers, dancers and actors all across Roleystone are invited to audition for a local production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera.” The auditions will be held at Mount Hawthorn’s main hall on the 4th and 5th of May, with the production to be staged at Wanneroo’s Limelight Theatre from November 20th to December 14th. Director Bob Mainwaring warns that the show will be a large commitment, with three rehearsals a week from July, followed by 20 performances, including two shows on Saturdays. “We’re excited by the challenge of tackling what’s become the longest running show in Broadway history,” he said. “It’s a musical theatre classic, focusing on the beautiful soprano Christine Daaé, who becomes the obsession of a mysterious, disfigured musical genius.” “The material for the three leads is extremely demanding, requiring performers who have the relevant training, stamina and experience needed to carry roles of this magnitude. People should be reasonable in their desires, but there is a large ensemble with 20 in the cast and 15 in the dance troupe, in addition to the main cast. The minimum age required by auditionees is 16 years.” Mainwaring has said that those auditioning for lead roles need acting ability, while dancers also need to be able to sing. Audition music can be

your own choice, but must be in the style of “The Phantom of the Opera.” A pianist will be available, or you can bring your own music on CD. Lead role auditionees will be given script excerpts on the day to read and, if successful, will be given a short scene and song to prepare for callbacks. For a full breakdown of the roles available, and to submit an audition form, go to www.limelighttheatre. com. The audition venue, Mount Hawthorn’s main hall, is located near the corner of Scarborough Beach Road and The Boulevarde.

Milly snoozes her way through Acupuncture Therapy

Pet Assist 332 Home Vet Services Compassionate convenient care of your pet at home

By Dr Judith Congrene New furry patients are always a challenge, especially for a mobile vet visiting the animals at home. Fortunately, there are also many advantages which make the challenge more rewarding and successful. My work as a home-visiting vet over the last decade gives me the chance to reduce stress levels of patients and owners on a daily basis. Milly, a beautiful aged retriever I met in the last fortnight, was a particular pleasure. According to her family, Milly was having problems with arthritis, so they booked an appointment for a home consultation, with the hopes of some acupuncture therapy. During the introduction phase of the home visit, I got an enthusiastic greeting from Milly and her owners, which continued as we settled down to discuss her symptoms. Milly’s owners were very helpful with their answers to all my questions about Milly’s daily routine, and how she copes with different areas of mobility. My head certainly got buzzing with thoughts on which Chinese medicine pattern Milly would fit into, as this would have an influence on the treatment given, in addition to the information from a physical examination.

After getting permission from Milly to start the acupuncture session, I proceeded to insert the needles, giving Milly time to process each needle as it was placed. Once this was completed, there was further discussion with Milly’s owners, during which time Milly made herself comfortable and went to sleep! She seemed to be a very happy and relaxed patient. The reports from Milly’s owners since that first treatment have said (to my great satisfaction) that the acupuncture is helping her symptoms. I am definitely looking forward to the next visit.

My 11 year old Golden Retriever “Clive” was due his annual vaccination. With a busy schedule and two children to look after, I wondered how I was going to manage getting my dog to the vet. Then I remembered that I had liked a local business called Pet Assist on Facebook, after reading Dr Judith Congrene’s amazing articles about the service that she provided to her customers and their animals. It was great news to discover that Pet Assist offered a mobile vet service, so when I contacted Dr Judith, the response was immediate. A few text messages later, she was booked to come to see us

at our home. When she came, she had instant rapport with my family and the dog. She began with an overall health check, only to discover that Clive had a stick lodged in his mouth, which she was able to remove. Although Clive never complained about the stick being in his mouth, we were glad it was out. Dr Judith provides a very professional and thorough service, which I would highly recommend to anyone. Having the added bonus of a home visit was just so convenient. Thank you Dr Judith! The Horgan family.

P&C Long Service Milestone Ken Walker, Roleystone Community College P&C Treasurer, was recently awarded with a WACSSO Long Service Award for over ten years of service to the support of education in Roleystone. The Western Australian Council of State School Organisations (WACSSO) formally recognised Ken’s work at a recent assembly held at the College. Ken worked as Treasurer of both the Roleystone Primary School and Roleystone District High School P&Cs before becoming Treasurer of the combined Roleystone Schools P&C in 2008. He is the inaugural Treasurer of the RCC P&C. Ken devotes a tremendous amount of his time each week to his position as Treasurer. He attends every opening of the Uniform Shop to process sales; he runs all financial aspects of the canteen and its staff and is very proactive in making the P&C’s money work for the benefit of all students. He has vast knowledge of all things financial, legal and constitutional, enabling the P&C to function as smoothly as possible. Ken is also WACSSO Councillor for the Canning South region and is on the Children’s Crossing and Road Safety Committee. P&C committees in Roleystone have had the benefit of Ken’s enthusiasm and expertise for over ten and a half years. He is very deserving of this WACCCO Long Service Award.


do In other news, the Roleystone Community College’s leaders are well and truly up and running. Headboy Tele Arotis and Headgirl Danelle Tilley are leading a highly enthusiastic team of Student Councillors and House Captains across a host of weekly activities which both entertain

and challenge their peers. Associate Principals Mr Springett and Mrs Thatcher, Teacher Mr Evans and House Deans Mr Mills, Mrs West, Mrs Watson and Mrs Bullock continue to provide this group with wonderful support and encouragement.

The “Garden Guru’s” team recently revisited Roleystone Community College to check on the growth and progress of its Sustainable Outdoor Garden Classroom, 12 months on. The Managing Director and Executive Producer of Guru Productions, Trevor Cochrane, was amazed at the amount of work that has been generated by the College’s students and staff in this small amount of time. In particular, he commented on how healthy the chooks, plants, herbs, urban orchard and fish were looking. Teachers Mr Huisman and Mrs Greyling worked alongside their colleagues and students across a variety of both Primary and Secondary year levels to ensure that the garden is continually cared for and monitored. In addition, a host of volunteer families are doing a wonderful job of looking after this valuable College asset on the weekends. This latest visit will once again be screened on Channel Nine in coming weeks.

Good neighbours key to a bushfire ready community “Also consider including your neighbours in your bushfire survival plan. If your plan is to leave early but you don’t always have a car, you should discuss the options with your family and your neighbours as they may be a good backup.” “If you work away from home and you have pets or livestock, your neighbour may be able to help so talk to them about your concerns. Ms Shea said it was vital for communities to come together to plan and prepare for bushfire. “In the middle of an emergency, it’s too late to plan and meet your Soils,Mulches, Bush Mulch, Sand,Landscaping Blended Soils, Rocks, neighbours,” she said. “Don’t put it off to Blended Mulches, Brickie & Paving Sand, tomorrow when you can Landscaping, Garden Makeovers, Local Gravel, Roadbase, Top Dressing Loam, meet them today because Blue Metal, Moss and Laterite Rock. you never know when you

Being a good neighbour can do more than improve community spirit, it can help people survive a bushfire. Department of Fire and Emergency Services Director Community Engagement Suellen Shea said often communities that were best able to react to bushfire were ones who were well connected and had good relationships with one another. “Knowing your neighbours means you can work together on developing your bushfire survival plans,’ Ms Shea said. “If a fire occurs in your area, everyone is affected so by getting to know your neighbour you can help each other to either leave early or take steps to enact your plan. “It can also help everyone in the community understand who lives next door or nearby that may be at greater risk during a bushfire, such as seniors, people with mobility issues or those that have a disability.” Ms Shea said that recent bushfires have spurred neighbourhood action. “Following a recent incident in Bindoon, 30 neighbours met to discuss how they could work together and communicate more effectively during a bushfire,” she said. “These neighbours are working together to set up a Bushfire Ready Group and are establishing a phone tree.” Ms Shea said there were many different ways neighbours could help each other during the bushfire season. “If you organise a phone tree you can help everyone in your neighbourhood be aware if a fire occurs,” Ms Shea said.

Entries are now open for the 2013 awards, which are run by the Keep Australia Beautiful Council WA. “The Keep Australia Beautiful STAR Awards are designed to reflect KAB’s primary mission, which is to reduce litter,” said council chairman Mel Hay. “The awards will assess an organisation’s actions to prevent litter, increase recycling and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. “Individuals and organisations are encouraged to enter - we see this as an excellent way to showcase the hard work that is being done to prevent litter in the community.” The STAR Awards replace the Sustainable Cities and Clean Beaches awards programs. KAB program coordinator Rohan Swan said the STAR Awards were different to other competitions. “The nomination process is very simple and every entry will be recognised with a KAB STAR rating, which will reflect the magnitude and the outcomes of an organisation’s efforts,” Mr Swan said. Awards will be presented to groups in the following categories: • Clean Beaches – open to organisations that protect and enhance beaches and waterways • Sustainable Cities - metropolitan local government • Community Groups and Individuals • Schools and Education Institutions • Business and Enterprise • Youth Achievement – for work done by, or with, people under 25yrs of age. There will also be an award for continuous achievement and a Chairman’s Award for exceptional effort. Entries will be assessed on criteria including: litter prevention, recycling, waste management, community links, education and interpretation, innovation and youth achievement. Submissions must be received by 5pm on Friday 21 June, 2013. Judging will take place in July and August and awards will be presented at a ceremony in September. For more information and to download submission documents, visit au or contact Rohan Swan at or on 6467 5143. Ref: Published: Thursday, 4 April 2013.

Roleystone area has been the Roleystone Pool from Collins Drive to Soldiers Road, and along the Canning River at Agostino Road. It has many other projects along the lines of waterways and creeks

in both Armadale and Gosnells as well. The formal partnerships which the Landcare Group has with both the City of Armadale and City of Gosnells are outstanding. I believe you would have to go interstate in order to find anything that equals this Local Government Landcare model. They have helped in the development of amazing transformations for our waterways, have attracted over one million dollars in outside funding, and kindly contributed many volunteer hours. It’s wonderful results like these which become realities when local governments and the community work together towards outcomes that are of strategic benefit to all. Pat Hart.

We are a team of 5 riders and crew who have registered for the Sunsuper Ride to Conquer Cancer, which is the state’s largest single fundraising event for the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research in Perth. WAIMR is Western Australia’s premier adult medical research institute, investigating the genetic and environmental causes of a range of diseases, including cancer. Their ultimate goal is to prevent diseases developing, and to create improved treatments if these conditions do emerge. Our challenge is to ride over 200 kilometres in 2 days, a feat which requires us to raise $2500 each, or $12,500 as a combined team. The money we raise will go directly to the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research in Perth. Each of our team members have lost someone significant in their lives to this disease, and by helping to conquer cancer, we hope other families and friends don’t ever have to experience what we have seen those close to us experience through their cancer journey. So far, our training has introduced us to the joy of 5:00am wake up calls, learning how to stomach breakfast at that hour, followed by 50km rides around Perth in

spandex and lycra pants. We are 5 ordinary women, with kids, jobs, houses to clean and meals to be cooked, but we are all passionate and dedicated to completing this ride with a sense of achievement. We will be holding a Quiz Night and Auction on the 28th of June at the Roleystone Country Club. Tickets and further details will be available at a later date. If you would like to sponsor us, donate, join as a crew member, or just want to send us your support, please do! Donations and registrations can be made via the au webpage, our names are Sarah Brereton, Alyce Thorpe, Linda Schaudin, Tracey Husbands and Tamara Artemis. You can make out the donation to any of these names, or simply to “The Escapees” team. Alternatively, you can phone 1300 99 RIDE (7433) and mention us, or contact us at jsbrereton@ or on 0408 956 709. All donations over $2 are tax deductable.

I had waiting for him, and Connor was definitely very happy being greeted with lemonade, powerade, Red Rooster, and an Easter egg. Dad’s now having a rest for a day or two, before he goes out there again. I think he’s planning to continue on the Track, with perhaps a little less weight on his pack, and a slower travel plan. Regardless, the trip they’ve just made was quite the challenge, his proud parents Paul Ovens and Vanessa Jean, Chris and Brent Caithness are so very proud of them both. Chris Caithness.


(Pictured L-R) Connor Ovens and Don Patterson have just returned from a wonderful adventure along the Bibbulmun Track. They covered 64km in just 3 days, which is pretty impressive! They were both in great spirits when I picked them up. I’ll admit there were even a few tears (from Connor and I) when we met up again. I heard a very elated “Grandpop, we made it!” from Connor when he spotted the car and started running to meet me. Dad was very glad to drink the 2 beers

Former Roleystone Theatre performer delivers good Company in Sondheim spectacle Former Roleystone Theatre performer Emma Davis is helping to bring a sensational Broadway musical comedy to life at the Subiaco Arts Centre this May. Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” focuses on Robert, a man who wants to share his life with someone, but still can’t commit to a steady relationship by his 35th birthday. Exploring Robert’s interactions with his three girlfriends, and the five married couples who are his best friends, “Company” was one of the first musicals to deal with contemporary relationship issues through its lyrics and melodies. Sondheim is famous for stage shows such as “Sweeney Todd”, “Into the Woods”, “Gypsy”, and many others. “Company” won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, when first produced in 1970. Presented by the ICW Performing Arts Association (a charity which helps performers with disability), the team behind the successful productions of “Oliver!” and “Les Miserables” at the Regal in 2012, are back again for another year of shows, starting with “Company.” Davis plays one of Robert’s three girlfriends, Kathy, whom she describes her as sweet-natured, with an idealistic view of what it means to be married. “She’s from Cape Cod and comes to New York to find love but, after a short time, she realises it isn’t for her and feels out of place,” the UWA classical music student said. “All Kathy really wants out of life is to be married and live a quiet existence. There was a time when Kathy wanted to marry Robert, but that time has passed and she moves on with her life, leaving him behind. She’s an interesting character because, on the surface, she seems quite simple and only after one thing – the pursuit of a husband – but beneath that, there’s a character searching for much more. Getting the character truthful and honest is going to be the biggest difficulty for me.” Involved in theatre since 2005, Davis has performed with the Old Mill, Playlovers, Roleystone and Kwinana Theatres in “South Pacific”, “Fiddler on the Roof”, “Seussical The Musical”, “Cabaret”, “Company”, “Nine” and “Assassins.” She has been nominated twice for the Yvonne Lynch Breakthrough Performance Award at the 2009 and 2010 Finley Awards, for her role in “Assassins” and choreography for “Nine”. She was also named Best Other than a Lead in a Musical for “Little Women” in 2011. The former WA Academy of Performing Arts student has also come across “Company” before, as an understudy for the roles of Amy and Kathy at the Old Mill Theatre two years ago. “I have always adored the music of Stephen Sondheim, but I didn’t discover “Company” until a friend showed me a filmed version of the show,” Davis said. “I immediately fell in love with the twisting story lines, real characters and beautiful music. It’s remained one of my

favourite musicals to this day, and I’m honoured to be a part of this production. I’m especially excited about singing “You Could Drive a Person Crazy.” “Company” is directed by Mark Barford and Brendan Hanson, matched with musical direction from Jangoo Chapkhana. Hanson also plays the lead role of Robert, a role that come in the wake of his tour de force performance as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables last year, as well his coming sixth place in Channel Ten’s “I Will Survive” reality show. “Robert is enigmatic, but still warm and charming, just trying to find his place and get clear about what he wants,” Hanson said. Barford added, “I love a musical that can make you laugh out loud one minute and then tear at your heartstrings the next – ‘Company’ is the sort of show that can do that.” Producer Ian Westrip described “Company” as one of the great Sondheim musicals, with wonderful insights into the human condition. “This is one of the most artistically accessible, thought-provoking musicals, which can appeal to all,” he said. “Company” will play at 7:30pm on May 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, with a 2:00pm matinee also on May 4th. To book through Ticketek, call 132 849 or go to The ICW Performing Arts Association is also offering a special deal: buy two tickets for “Company”, and receive one free ticket for the preview performance of “Cats” in July. The deal is only available by calling 0416 251 265. The Subiaco Arts Centre is at 180 Hamersley Road, Subiaco.

Kathy (former Roleystone Theatre performer Emma Davis, left), Marta (Elethea Sartorelli) and April (Heather Michele Lawler) want Bobby (Brendan Hanson) to commit to someone in “Company.”

Year Six Leavers Jumpers Presentation For a number of years at Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School in Kelmscott, a valuable Mentor Program has been running between the Year One and Year Six students. Over the last three years, the Year Six students have acted as mentors to their little buddies. In appreciation for the great care that their big buddies have shown to them, the Year One students were given the special honour of presenting the Year Six students with their 2013 Leavers shirts. The Year One students were masters of discretion, and managed to keep some top secret information a surprise! In their class, the Year One students worked very hard to write down the qualities that make their big buddy very special. At the presentation ceremony, each of the Year One students read out and shared the unique qualities of their big buddy and presented them with their Leavers shirt. Thomas said that his buddy was special because “they cuddle me every time they see me”. Emily thinks that her buddy is special because “he makes me laugh and he is funny.” This was a memorable occasion for everyone involved, and we are looking forward to continuing this new tradition in the years to come!

On the 28th of March, the community of Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School came together to share in the Stations of the Cross Ceremony. The Year Six students lead the community of students, staff, and over forty parents and parishioners on a journey through the beautiful bush grounds of the school. While travelling along this journey, the community experienced the story of Jesus in the week leading up to his death and resurrection through fourteen stations. The story was reverently conveyed by the Year Six students through spoken word, mime, instrumental playing and songs. The younger students of the school from Pre-Primary through to Year Five are to be commended for the reverence and grace that they displayed while participating in the ceremony. The Stations of the Cross was a significant event, in which the students, staff, parents and parish were able to embrace their sense of community and to celebrate the Easter traditions together.

The Coalition’s broadband plan, as announced today by Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull, will deliver the NBN sooner, at a less cost to taxpayers, and it will be more affordable for consumers. Canning MHR Don Randall said the NBN rollout was currently one of the biggest issues for his electorate. “In 2011, I was already seeing the signs of the electorate being in NBN limbo,” Mr Randall said. “The NBN was coming, but very, very slowly, and it wasn’t keeping pace with housing and business developments and the growing population. “Kevin Rudd promised every Australian fast broadband by 2013 at a cost of $4.7 billion. Instead, the NBN has only signed up 10,400 users for its fibre network with an expected cost of more than $90 billion. “It’s hard to believe not one NBN connection has been made in WA.” Mr Randall said by 2016, under the Coalition there will be minimum download speeds of 25 megabits – and up to 100 megabits – which is fast enough to download high definition video and watch the football. By 2019, the vast majority of households will get access to 50 megabits, which

is 10 times faster than the average household’s current speed. The Coalition’s Plan for Fast Broadband and an Affordable NBN will: Ensure households and businesses can get access to fast broadband by the end of 2016 – with download speeds five times today’s average. End the delays and cost overruns and get the NBN back on track through better management, greater transparency and tighter controls. Give priority to regions and suburbs with the poorest existing service in the rollout. Deliver a more affordable NBN than Labor – saving consumers about $300 a year by 2021. Deliver a smarter NBN that uses a mix of technologies. Our plan will cost less and make the NBN more economically viable. Lesson the strain on taxpayers who could be expected to bear the burden of Labor’s delayed and mismanaged $90 billion plus NBN. Mr Randall said by giving priority to regions and suburbs with the poorest internet service, the NBN would be provided quickly to cyberstruggling suburbs such as Austin Cove, Falcon, Wannanup, Darling Downs, Bedfordale, Harrisdale, and Piara Waters. A full copy of the Coalition’s NBN Policy is available at

which she also does her own framing. “I consider myself to be a bit of a jane-ofall-trades. I like to try for something new and innovative each year. I’m inspired especially by movement, so I avoid flowers and landscapes in my art. They don’t have enough flow. Most of my art focuses on animals, like the horses I breed.” Many of Catherine’s animal pieces have been sold for a good price, with one framed artwork averaging at $400. She charges more for the most innovative pieces, since they require more forethought. Catherine joked, “I think if someone steals an artist’s work, then it must have been deemed pretty worthy. I’ve had nothing stolen yet.” On a more serious note, Catherine has great aspirations to win the People’s Choice Award, but acknowledges that her competitors are quite awe-inspiring. “I’ve been inspired by members of the ASA, like Pam White and my predecessor Dot Marshall, as well as an artist of the highest calibre, Brian Simmons, who lives up north. They’ve been instrumental to the development of my art.” Although she considers her first solo exhibition to be “very daunting”, Catherine also finds it very exciting, and is glad to have the support of her loving family as she takes this next artistic leap. She has commended Genesis in the Hills for providing a space to show her work, and for the support that the restaurant gives to local artists. Although she will be kept busy maintaining the ASA, Catherine is already planning her next exhibition, which will include one big centre piece, featuring 101 horses. The Valley Reporter wishes her all the very best as she progresses as a local artist. Elise Kelly.

The members of the Roleystone Women’s Hockey Club recently went for a pre-season fitness walk through our beautiful local surrounds. Unfortunately, due to short notice, only a few were able to attend. We all met at the end of Rushton Road in Gosnells, where several walking trails meander around Ellis Brook Valley. The trails are even more spectacular in the wildflower season, when the brook is running. We walked to the top and enjoyed the view of Perth from some of the lookouts. We finished the afternoon with a drink and nibbles in one of the picnic areas at the bottom.

Host a street party and get to know your neighbours The City of Armadale has teamed up with Neighbourhood Watch to promote neighbourhood security through the Street Meet N Greet program. Street Meet N Greet allows neighbours to gather for an informal barbecue and get to know each other. “Getting to know your neighbours is a proven way of improving safety. Knowing those around you helps prevent crime and reduce anti-social behaviour,” said Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones. “We have so many new neighbourhoods coming up and thousands of people moving into the City every year so there is no better time to host a Street Meet N Greet and get to know those around you. “As a host all the information and equipment will be provided to you including an activity trailer containing a barbecue, games, CD player and much more. “The team from Neighbourhood Watch will also be on hand to assist and provide any information you need on household safety,” said Mayor Zelones. A Street Meet N Greet can be organised through Neighbourhood Watch who will deliver an information package, invitations, name badges and other items needed to host the event. For more information on hosting a Street Meet N Greet call Neighbourhood Watch on 0497 675 920.
