YOUR Region. YOUR Magazine. YOUR Valley Reporter. This month’s front cover is a reminder to be ever so careful with extreme and possibly catastrophic weather conditions predicted for Roleystone and our surrounding areas. The government’s televised “Are You Bushfire Ready” campaign should also be a prompt for you to have everything in place so you know what to do if a fire starts near you. Holiday events and celebrations are exciting times for family and friends to get together. However, don’t let your special occasion turn into a tragedy. Our roads are more crowded at holiday times so be mindful of others and have a safe and happy journey wherever you’re going. Have you wanted to start a new hobby for a while? Have you been in awe at what some people have made or done as a result of their hobby? Then learn something new and get started. It’s easier than you think at McFarleane House Learning Centre Inc. They have a range of classes on offer that are suitable for anyone. Give them a ring on 9394 0233. Also, the local Roleystone Family Centre has many interesting and worthwhile courses on offer for all ages. For more information, go to www. The Valley Reporter has had the opportunity to feature some very special and successful people within our community this month. Kelsie Anderson has gone from strength to strength in

pursuing an acting career, and soon you will get the chance to see her in action. Turn to page 5 for further details. Lily Campbell is another champion. She is just the second local Roleystone Gymnastics girl to be accepted into the Western Australia Institute of Sport. But, unfortunately this achievement comes at a price. Sponsors are required to help make her achievements that little bit easier, so if you think you may be able to help, go to page 11 for full contact details. What’s your New Year’s resolution? With all that turkey, trimmings, alcohol and confectionary it really does broaden the waistline at this time of year. So most would say “I want to get fit in 2014”, and thankfully Joanne James from GoFigure Pilates may just have what you are looking for. Shop Smart, Shop Local! and give her a call today (featured on page 14). Also, Pam Bailey will be running a workshop focusing on how to achieve your health and fitness goals this year. Go to page 3 for more information. Alternatively, you could lend a hand to the crew at Roleybushcare and participate in their next Dieback field day on the 9th of March. Do you know someone who has a hobby or special interest? Then the Valley Reporter would love to feature them, but we need you to tell us who they are. Any age counts. Who is our community legend?

How to Achieve Your Health & Fitness Goals Presented by Pam Bailey from Nutrition in Balance Date: Time: Venue: Cost:

Wednesday 22nd January 2014 6.30pm to 8.00pm Yes2Life, 47 Church Ave (Cnr Fourth Rd), Armadale $20

“Nutrition in Balance” is a new clinic based at Yes2Life in Armadale, and Roleystone resident Pam Bailey is running a workshop to help you set and achieve your health and fitness goals for 2014. At this time of year we can be very enthusiastic about getting fit, losing weight or simply getting healthy, but keeping those resolutions going is another matter. This workshop will provide tips and hints to help you achieve your goals. Healthy snacks will be provided along with free recipes and the tools you need to succeed. Pam is a Clinical Nutritionist focusing on the link between health and diet, with an emphasis on identifying the root cause of a health problem. Once the cause has been identified, she works with her clients to develop a plan to address the situation. “The body has an amazing ability to heal itself; you just need to provide the right conditions to facilitate that healing. My goal is to help you create the right conditions,” says Pam. She provides personal consultations and regular workshops at Yes2Life. Pam is also available to talk to community groups and people in the workplace about health and nutrition. “Most people are surprised at how their health can be improved, just by making changes to their diet and general lifestyle. It’s about taking a holistic approach and it’s definitely not a one-size-fits-all approach.” For workshop bookings, call Yes2Life on 9498 3788. Contact Pam for general information on 0452 464 818 or email:, Facebook: www.

The next field day will be held on March 9th, 2014. It is to be a continuing of the Dieback treatment that started in September at Warwick Savage Reserve, Simons Drive, Roleystone. Entry to the Reserve will be via Simons Drive. Signs will indicate the location of the trailer. Treatment will commence at 9.00am and will finish at 12.00pm. Participants will be able to borrow the equipment to treat

their own trees against die back. New volunteers are always welcome. If you require any further information, please visit our website at www.roleybushcare. This and other information is also shown on the notice board at the Roleystone Shopping Centre. Morning tea will, as usual, be provided. Hope to see you there. Horst Seecamp

PLUMBING & GAS PL 6861 GF 6093

On Monday the 16th of December 2013, a suspicious vehicle fire served as a reminder for people living in Roleystone and surrounding areas to remain vigilant and aware during the bushfire season. At 5.10pm, a fire was reported burning in bush land north of Churchman Brook Road, between Waterwheel Road and Soldiers Road. A bushfire advice was issued for people in the northern part of Bedfordale in the City of Armadale. Although there was no immediate threat to lives or homes, nearby residents were urged to be aware and keep up to date in case the situation changed. With the help of 25 firefighters from the Roleystone Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service, Bedfordale and Armadale Volunteer Bush Fire Service, Armadale 1st Brigade and the Department of Parks and Wildlife, the bushfire was contained and brought under control. Aircraft were also sent to assist ground crews, and the bushfire was downgraded to an all clear advice. The cause of the fire was linked to a suspicious vehicle fire in the area, which resulted in an estimated 0.8 hectares of burnt bush land. Fortunately, there was no damage to property or loss of life. As summer continues to deliver hot temperatures and gusty winds, residents living in fire prone areas are reminded to prepare and follow basic fire precautions

in order to avoid a repeat of the 2011 Roleystone-Kelmscott fires. In the event of a fire: • Stay alert and monitor your surroundings. • Watch for signs of a bushfire, especially smoke and flames. • Close all doors and windows, and turn off evaporative air conditioners but keep water running through the system if possible. • Read through your bushfire survival plan. • If you do not have a plan decide what you will do if the situation gets worse. • Be extremely careful when driving through the area. • Turn your headlights on and drive slowly. • Watch for emergency services personnel and follow their directions. • If you cannot see clearly, pull over, keep your headlights and hazard lights on, and wait until the smoke clears. • If you have a respiratory condition and you have been affected by smoke you should contact your local doctor or call Health Direct on 1800 022 222. • Visit, call 1300 657 209 or listen to news bulletins to keep up to date.

City of Armadale introduces changes to Junk Collections

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s easy to book a memorable celebration for you and your loved one at local restaurants Views 101 and Roley’s on the Ridge. Below is a taste of their mouth watering menus that will serve as the perfect backdrop for your special night. At Views 101, the set menu begins with a shared platter of shaved calamari and caper jam, soft shell crab with watermelon and goat curd, pork belly with citrus salad salsa, chicken liver pate with smoked eggplant dip and garlic crostini. To follow, you have the choice of a gorgeous Chicken Roulade consisting of parma ham, asparagus and goats cheese served with piped truffle polenta finished with Jerusalem artichoke foam sauce, or a Beef Trio of fillet mignon, braised cheek and beef croquette served with celeriac and leek puree on bacon dill rosti topped with port jus and toffee onion. The three-course meal ends with a shared dessert with these three things on the platter; a Grand Marnier chocolate mousse with candied orange, a Raspberry pavlova crumble or a Baileys white chocolate brûlée. The price is $75 per person. However, for something more relaxing, you can try their special picnic basket on the lawn: antipasto with lamb ribs, arancini balls, pate, smoked salmon, tomato chutney with garlic and chive loaf and smoked Danish cheese, brie and vintage cheddar with strawberries, raspberry chutney and crackers. The price of $60 per person is based on a picnic basket for two (Fully Licensed, BYO rug).

There will be live music by Victoria Corcoran on the terrace from 6pm. To book your table, please call 9397 9969 before they run out.

Next, there is a delicious chicken breast served with Israeli couscous, green beans and an orange butter sauce, or you can indulge in a pistachio crusted lamb rump on saffron mashed potato, broccolini, creamy rosemary sauce and spiced carrot fritters. For dessert, there will be a rich chocolate tart with vanilla cream and flambéed strawberries. The price is $75 per person (Fully Licensed, no BYO).

in a mess, as well as report persons that dump rubbish on another verge without permission. If possible the reports should provide the City with information, including a vehicle description and registration, time, date and details of items dumped, to enable the City to take action. “I would remind residents that unsorted piles or unsuitable junk will not be collected. There are many things we can collect, but some rubbish is just not suitable, so it is important that people follow the guidelines set out in the Junk Collection flyer. “If the junk is properly sorted, the City is able to recycle about a third, which keeps collection costs down and reduces waste to landfill. “By working together, we can all help keep our City tidy during the verge collections that we all find so useful,” said Mayor Zelones. Residents without a verge should contact Waste Services to register an alternative site. For further information call the City’s Waste Services team on 9399 0124.

In response to feedback and comments received from residents regarding the sometimes unsightly state of streets during junk collections, the City of Armadale has introduced changes to collection time frames, which will be effective immediately. Residents are to only place junk on the verge during the weekend immediately prior to their junk collection date. Rubbish is to be placed on the householder’s verge according to the instructions contained in the Junk Collection flyer, which will be delivered to residents prior to the collection. As always, Litter infringements can and will be issued if junk is placed on the verge prior to the specified date, is placed in an area not allocated for junk collection, contains unacceptable items or is placed on another verge without permission of the owner. Televisions and computers are not accepted in the junk collection. These may however be disposed of for free at the Armadale Landfill Site in Hilbert. Mayor Henry Zelones said the City is urging residents to act as eyes on the street and report any scavengers leaving piles

Kiwi Xmas in the Park was held at Stirk Park in Kalamunda on Sunday 22nd of December. Cat Brown, Tanya Leituala (BrownBros Events), Kris Bryant (New Zealous Music) and Pettania Hohaia (Perth Maori) combined forces to make up Kiwi’s in Western Australia Organising group – KIWA. Their first event attracted thousands of Kiwis who ascended to the hills of Kalamunda to celebrate Christmas. “Our aim was to provide a free for all experience to the whole community, not just Kiwis, with no charge. The whole family could bring a picnic and enjoy the festivities of the day,” explained Event Manager Cat Brown. Organisers saw the event as a great opportunity to raise funds for a worthy cause, and decided on running a collection for the victims of the Philippines typhoon. There was also a wishing tree for the community to donate a gift that would be sent to the Philippines. The program was packed with entertainment from various cultural groups such as Maori, Cook Island, Samoan and Tongan performers, upcoming talent Cera Kapo, hip-hop group Morse Gang and wellknown artist Paula Parore’s RnB group Box Party Trio. “We had a section for our rising stars to showcase their talent and compete in a talent quest. There was nonstop entertainment going on throughout the day,” said Kris Bryant, Entertainment Coordinator and MC. Stalls were also set up to raise funds for a Kohanga Reo (Maori Language Nest) in Perth. Te Puawaitanga o Nga Kakano Kohanga Reo aim to fundraise 1 million dollars by selling Taniwha Burgers and Maori items such as Poi in order to build a purpose built facility for the Kohanga Reo. “Our stalls sold food


from various ethnic groups synonymous with New Zealand culture, for example, Hangi, Chop Suey, Pani Popo, Pineapple Pies and Cook Island Donuts. We also had craft and apparel stalls,” explained Pettania Hohaia, Stalls Coordinator. Because approximately 70,000 Kiwis have made Western Australia their home, these events are in high attendance. They give ex-pat Kiwis the opportunity to get a taste of the home that they sorely miss and showcase their culture to Perth friends and family. “We believe these events help Kiwis settle because it gives them a sense of identity and belonging, especially around this time of year” said Tanya Leituala, Volunteers coordinator. “We were overwhelmed by the support from sponsors and the community which brought the event to life. We would like to thank Chris Ellison from the New Zealand Consulate for making a personal donation, sponsorship from businesses including Helping Kiwi’s Buy Perth, HalfKast Design, New Zealous Music, Creative Marquees, Adventure Time Bouncy Castles, Kalamunda IGA as well as local Federal MP Ken Wyatt for all their support,” said Cat Brown.

Roleystone Community Chemist HEALTH ADVICE CORNER

Does 50+ sunscreen give more protection? Choosing a sunscreen for the whole family is not always easy. Factors impacting on choice of sunscreen are length of time in the sun, age of user, skin allergies and physical activity levels. The new 50+ sunscreens are simply the old 30+ sunscreens repackaged. Old sunscreens were always 50+ but companies could not advertise as such. These new sunscreens still need to be applied every 3-4 hours. Sunscreens are classified as either broad or narrow spectrum according to their sun protection Factor (SPF). Broad spectrum sun screen protects from both UVA and UVB radiation. The SPF factor measures how good a sunscreen is at providing protection from UVB rays. SPF 50+ simply means the sunscreen will give you 51 times your normal protection. The amount of UVB radiation required to produce the first signs of reddening on fair unprotected skin is compared to the amount of radiation required to produce the first signs of reddening with sunscreen applied. The comparison is the SPF factor. In reality an SPF 15 blocks about 94% UV, and SPF 50 about 97% UV. Sunscreens contain both chemical and physical agents to block UV radiation. The physical agents used are Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. These agents are not broken down or chemically altered by the radiation therefore can be used long term. An example of this is cricketers plastering their lips thickly with white Zinc Oxide cream. There are many different chemical

absorbers. Benzophenones (oxybenzone and dixybenzone) are UVA and UVB absorbers. The aminobenzoates, cinnamates and camphor derivatives are UVB absorbers only. The use of the aminobenzoates such as paraaminobenzoate (PABA) and Padimate O have declined due to a higher degree of skin allergies. UVA absorbers include the Anthranilates (Menthyl anthranilate) and the Dibenzoylmethanes. Sunscreens will often include combinations of these chemical absorbers to maximise protection and minimise skin reactions to them. Application: • Apply 15 minutes prior to exposure. • Wear under moisturiser, make up or insect repellant. • Reapply every two hours or more frequently if swimming, perspiring or towel drying. • Apply generously e.g. 1 teaspoonful for each arm, leg, front and back of body and half a teaspoonful for the neck and face for an average adult. • Apply to clean dry skin. There are many sunscreen products on the market. Low irritant sunscreens commonly do not contain chemical absorbers and are therefore more useful for young children or those with sensitive skin. “Sports” milks or creams often have more oily bases and therefore stay on longer in the water. “Ultra” sunscreens often have the greatest SPF factor. If in doubt of which sunscreen to choose, ask your pharmacist.

The month of December saw two Roleystone Volunteer Fire Brigade cadets Maison McGrail and Shanae Jarvis move up to the senior ranks. Once cadets reach the age of 16, they join a crew of senior brigade members and attend cadets on a Tuesday night to pass on what they have learnt to younger cadets. However, they completely graduate from the Unit at the age of 17. The Roleystone Volunteer Fire Brigade Cadet Unit is very rewarding as it offers youth a chance at participating in the

local community. The Unit meets on Tuesday nights from 6.30pm - 8.30pm at the Roleystone Station and is under the watchful eye of Noel Plowman and Robert Littmann. Cadets learn about theory and how to use the equipment on fire trucks, light tankers and two-way radios. If you would like to know more about the Roleystone Volunteer Fire Brigade Cadet Unit, please call Noel Plowman on 9397 6370 or Robert Littmann 0427 977 190.

TRILITY PARTNERS WITH MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL FOUNDATION The Munda Biddi Trail Foundation has joined forces with local business TRILITY in a major partnership which will assist with the maintenance of the iconic off-road cycling track. TRILITY, as part of a joint venture, is the operator of the Mundaring Water Treatment Plant, and will sponsor the Mundaring to Jarrahdale section of the trail which stretches 103km through forests, bushland and scenic river valleys. The $7500 annual sponsorship over three years will fund the volunteer program which coordinates regular maintenance works on the trail. The Munda Biddi Trail is the longest, most continuous off road cycling track in the world, running from Mundaring to Albany. TRILITY will sponsor one of the nine sectors of the trail. TRILITY spokesperson Caroline Kerkhof said the company was delighted to support the Munda Biddi volunteer program and ensure the future of an important Western Australian tourism icon and environmental asset. “TRILITY is committed to working with its local communities and we are proud to help provide resources that will keep the Munda Biddi Trail maintained for everyone to enjoy,” Ms Kerkhof said. “The Mundaring Water Treatment Plant is a critical asset and a major source of water for regional WA and has the same benefits to the community as the trail - it’s a perfect synergy.” Munda Biddi Trail Foundation Chairman Ron Colman said the volunteer program was crucial to the ongoing viability of the trail and congratulated TRILITY for its commitment to an important tourism and environmental asset. “The Munda Biddi is one of the top cycle rides in the world and is rapidly becoming a major tourist attraction for cyclists everywhere,” Mr Colman said. “TRILITY’s sponsorship will ensure the trail continues to attract cyclists, which in turn creates fantastic flow-on economic benefits to the local community.”

Helping people as well as animals

Pet Assist 332 Home Vet Services Compassionate convenient care of your pet at home Dr Judith M Congrene BSc BVMS Veterinary Surgeon

By Dr Judith Congrene BSc BVMS In the presence of pets that I treat as a veterinary surgeon, there is a great deal of time involved with the owner and the animal’s family. On a daily basis, I feel drawn to assisting people with their difficulties when an animal is unwell, especially if this is to the stage of facing decisions for the compassionate euthanasia of a pet. It is clear to me every day how much support is needed at this very emotional and distressing time. Over the years as a mobile veterinarian visiting patients in their homes, I have been blessed with wonderful opportunities to help clients at a more spiritual level, and this connection has made my work completely awesome. Often I hear that my work must be so difficult and that people don’t know how I face the task of helping a much-loved pet to pass peacefully. Although this

Phone: 0433 2137 28

Excellent service, reasonable prices vaccinations, microchipping, routine health checks, treatment of common problems including arthritis, allergies, abscesses, compassionate euthanasia of pets at home

is true, the very positive side for me is giving the emotional support in the process of providing veterinary care and professional expertise. It is very personal to share this time of sadness with my clients, whether I have just met them for the first time or we have become friends over a longer period whilst visiting their animals at home. In this relationship,

there is the development of much more than veterinary care – it is the role of counsellor, spiritual teacher, and healer. I know that helping owners in this way helps their animals to pass peacefully. Please feel free to email me at drjcongrene@westnet. if you have any questions or comments.

Hi everyone. My little one has been lucky enough to train at the Western Australia Institute of Sport, and the time has now come to look for some sponsorship. Money raised will help go towards her future travel and accommodation costs associated with gymnastics. It costs around $4000 for a week interstate, and sponsorship is $250 per year. Any business or individual who decides to sponsor will get their name on the sponsors board at the WAIS Gymnastics Training Centre, and this donation can be claimed back at tax time. I would also like to thank everyone for all their support. Lily is now the second local girl to be accepted into WAIS. Go Roleystone Gymnastics! Please don’t hesitate in contacting Roleystone Gymnastics Club Inc. on 9496 1484 for further information. Mia Campbell.

Written by Australia’s most respected contemporary playwright David Williamson and directed by Dale James, Brilliant Lies is an adult comedy about a woman who accuses her former employer of harassment after failing to comply with his sexual demands. The play was also made into a 1996 film with Anthony LaPaglia, Gia and Zoe Carides and Ray Barrett.

Mikado, Night Was Our Friend, Lucky Sods, Blood Brothers, Pygmalion, Death By Chocolate, Yeoman of the Guard and Bargain Burials. “The play is of its time – sexual harassment in the workplace in the 1990s was being exposed by the media, which also raised other ethical questions.” Director Dale James said Brilliant Lies looks at the clash between different perceptions of truth and the eternal battle of the sexes.

GoFigure Pilates is a studio owned and operated by Jo James in Roleystone that specialises in private and duet Pilate sessions. Jo started her lifechanging journey with Pilates 10 years ago. As an overweight housewife and mother of 2 children, she struggled to get out of bed in the morning. After 2 knee reconstructions (both netball injuries), her arthritis and back pain became almost unbearable. Then, by a chance call to a Pilates studio, she began to discover her core strength. She changed her posture and “found” herself again, losing weight and dropping 6 dress sizes in 2 years. Before long, she set out to share her story with others. This led to a course with Polestar Pilates, an international community of research-oriented movement professionals. After 2 years, she became a Certified Polestar Studio Fitness Instructor, and the following year completed a Diploma in Pilates Instruction. Jo is a member of the Pilates Institute of Australasia and Mentor to up and coming Pilates instructors with Polestar International. She has treated people from all walks of life. “The results are amazing… life changing. The whole fitness industry is now going back to the core.” Do you want to improve your

golf swing? GoFigure can put you on a wonderful program to achieve any goal. Do you want to lift your grandchild and run around in the park without back pain? Pilates can help make that happen. “Some days, I wake up and just need to pinch myself to make sure it is all real how my life has changed. Go figure… who would have thought!” If you would like to see where Pilates can take you, book a session with Jo by contacting GoFigure Pilates on 0407 981 019 or visit the website at www.

I think people take more notice of me now.” With a taste of life as an actress and her name already in the credits of “The Reckoning”, Kelsie is determined more than ever to pursue a career in acting. Having already received offers from management agents, she is yet to make a decision about her future in the industry.

BOOST Summer Improv Intensive for Teens runs 10am to 4pm, January 20 to 24, and helps empower 15 to 18-yearolds with improv skills and games, culminating in a live improv show, to develop a mindset that will help with all aspects of their lives. For those who cannot commit to the whole week, participants can choose to do one or more days of the program. “Very often, teenagers have an enormous capacity for creativity, but is not recognised by adults who want good marks and conformity above all,” said BOOST trainer Chris Bedding. “The program is so valuable because it’s designed to help young people overcome the hurdles in their mind that get in the way of them trying new things,” added fellow trainer Esther Longhgurst. Another program, DEUCE: Improv Duos Course, runs 7pm to 9.30pm February 3, 10, 17 and 24 and helps creative partners develop structures, formats, styles and depth of character while exploring the nature of their partnership through improvisation.

If you’ve ever wanted to be more spontaneous, Just Improvise has special summer classes at Mount Lawley Bowling Club to help adults and teenagers with improvisational skills. Headed by national improvisation champion and WA Academy of Performing Arts improvisation lecturer Glenn Hall, Just Improvise is Perth’s premier improvisation training provider. After training and performing with some of the world’s best in Germany, Hall recently returned to WA. “Just Improvise is passionate about applying improv skills to all stages of life because the skills are definitely transferable,” Hall said. “I have been teaching improvisation to actors and non-actors for 20 years. When I teach adult courses for non-actors, I always ask why they’re here. Invariably, most participants will respond with ‘I want to get out of my comfort zone’. The JUMP: Intro to Improv Masterclass from 10am to 3pm, January 19, is designed to help adults develop the attitude, approach and mindset required for effective improvisation. It gives individuals the chance to experience ideas such as failing happily, being obvious to seem creative and trying less to achieve more, while encouraging fearlessness, collaboration, commitment, positivity

2pm to 5pm, the younger visitors will be the focus, with a number of activities on the planning board. With the potential sale and redevelopment of the old Primary School site, there is much discussion and negotiation underway to obtain a new permanent home. However, the location of the first market will be Cross Park. The Market Committee is looking forward to continuing the fantastic community support they enjoyed in 2013, but don’t be surprised to see more non-locals visiting: the reputation of our Market is spreading! If you are a local artisan interested in having a stall, or a not for profit organisation interested in managing a stall to raise funds, then check out our Facebook page, email us on or contact Lorraine on 0400 258 681.

The Roleystone Market Committee said farewell to the highly successful inaugural year of the Markets with a sundowner at the Roleystone Country Club, thanking all those individuals and community groups who supported them so magnificently during 2013. The success of the markets has significantly exceeded the expectations of the small group of ladies on the Committee, and stall holders and visitors alike clearly demonstrated their appreciation with increased numbers of visitors, and stall holders wanting to sign up for 2014 half way through 2013. The first twilight market of 2014 will be held on Sunday 2nd March from 2pm to 8pm. Once again it will be a marriage of music and market, with the Roleystone Musicians Club stepping on to the stage to entertain us from 5pm to 8pm. From

Wishing all our customers and the community a happy New Year Roleystone Auto Centre proudly supports local businesses

Each month between February and June, a new culture will be on display and a new gourmet recipe will be cooked in front of a live audience. The first workshop is on Thursday 27 February with a fusion of Indian cooking and cultural delights. City of Gosnells Mayor Dave Griffiths said the City was proud to celebrate its cultural diversity and the World on a Plate series was a great platform. “With more than one third of the local community born overseas, this is a great opportunity to explore some of the many cultures that make up our multicultural City,” said Mayor Griffiths. These free cultural exchange workshops share insights into different cultures and cooking traditions and equip participants with the skills to cook a new international dish at home. World on a Plate has a new home in 2014 at Southern River College on Southern River Road, Gosnells. The college has fantastic amenities including a well-equipped kitchen, spacious eating areas and convenient parking. Future dates for the World on a Plate series include Thursday 27 March (Mexican), Thursday 10 April (Austrian), Thursday 29 May (Sudanese) and Thursday 26 June (Japanese). Bookings are essential and will be taken from Monday 13 January 2014. Due to the popularity of the series, only one workshop booking per person is allowed. Residents are urged to choose their favourite cuisine or a dish they would love to learn to cook and book early to avoid disappointment. To secure your place, please call the City’s Community Development office on 9397 3121 or email Ref: Published on Monday 30 December, 2013.

AMALGAMATION OR BOUNDARY CHANGE: KEEP THEM IN THE DARK It’s interesting driving down Armadale Road and seeing signs expressing concerns from the City of Cockburn residents who have been told they will be amalgamated into the Town of Kwinana. Meanwhile, Serpentine-Jarrahdale residents, City of Canning residents and residents in other areas are expressing similar concerns. However, all is quiet from the top as we wait for the Government appointed committee to make their recommendations. All is extremely quiet at the City of Armadale after making their submission to the appointed committee unavailable to ratepayers. So, I presume they decided that if you don’t tell anyone the implications then there is nothing for them to be concerned about; keeping them in the dark is the best way to manage this situation. This is 2014, not 1914. Councillors who represent us know what is in the submission, but they are sworn to secrecy. Why? I have asked questions formally through a Council meeting but have had very little satisfaction in the responses. Some may agree with how the City of Armadale is managing this proposal, but I find it very affronting. It shows disrespect to all ratepayers who have a right to know what the implications, both positive and negative, will be for us all.

ANSTEY- KEANE WETLAND CHALLENGE FINAL STAGES The threat of having the Anstey-Keane Wetland in Forrestdale dissected by a road is entering its final stages with a Public Environmental Review out for comment by the EPA. For the last 7 years, the Friends of Forrestdale Lake have undertaken a prolific and detailed awareness effort to heighten the values of this outstanding wetland and outline the implications that will arise if the

City of Armadale creates a road through it. Personally, I believe there are no real grounds to proceed with this road. The original case put forward by the City talked about saving greenhouse gases by reducing 4 minutes of travel time, hence encouraging Piara and Harrisdale residents to shop in Armadale. They are now stating that it will attract more people to the large light industrial area currently being constructed in Armadale. I encourage you to go to the web site www. and see the map of the wetland and proposed road. Note the four-lane Ranford Road one side and Armadale Road the other side. Look up a larger map and see how close these residents are to Cockburn Central Shopping Centre and their light industrial park, how close they are to Livingston Shopping Centre, Ranford Road Shopping Centre and Bunnings. Why would this road make any real difference? If the environment is not your concern, then consider the financial implications for the City. In a recent article, Cr. Wielinga quoted $2Million – this is mainly money collected from our rates. There are many other areas that this huge amount of money could be spent, such as lowering this year’s rates. The original Council item for this road was not supported by the then Environmental Officer Ron van Delft for numerous environmental concerns. The majority of councillors who approved the road are no longer serving as Councillors. In my opinion, the need for this road is not substantiated and the environmental consequences are of real concern. I do not believe the City of Armadale has given any substantial reasons to proceed with the road, and our Councillors should voice their concerns to not proceed. Your support through a submission or signing the Friends of Forrestdale petition would be of great assistance. Pat Hart.

testimoniAl 2 December 2013 Dear Maggie, I would like to thank you and your team at Maggie Burke Real Estate for the efficiency with which you sold my house. You were a pleasure to work with at every stage, from your initial suggestions on what needed to be done to improve presentation, through to visiting after the sale was completed to ensure I was completely happy. The photography was superb because you took the trouble to employ an experienced photographer and I was delighted to find your service even included supplying some pieces of furniture to ensure every room was displayed to its full potential. The house sold far more quickly that I expected and for a price I was satisfied with. Throughout the process I was kept fully informed of developments by you or by a member of your friendly, efficient team. I couldn’t have asked for better service. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone
