Editorial

YOUR Region. YOUR Magazine. YOUR Valley Reporter. The sun is still shining, and the weather is just gorgeous, so get outdoors and get amongst the many community events that are on offer at this time of year. This month’s Valley Reporter congratulates Noel Plowman on his honorary award for ‘Outstanding Fire Service’. He is a remarkable member of our community who continues to keep giving to the fire service, and our youth. Keep up the great work, Noel! Read his full story on page 6. Our Roleystone Community Garden is looking for new members. For a small annual fee, members are able to work in the garden at any time, and enjoy the produce. Gardening experience is not necessary. If you are interested, then go to page 14 for further information and contact details. It doesn’t feel like winter, but believe it or not, some

of our local winter sports clubs are just about to kick off with some pre-season training already. When the time comes, make sure you show your support for your local team. The expanded and even ‘hotter’ LiveLighter Araluen’s Fremantle Chilli Festival 2014 is expected to attract a record attendance at the Esplanade Reserve, Fremantle over the weekend of 8th and 9th of March. Will you be attending? For times and ticket prices, go to page 19. I must say that it’s so great to see our children utilising our new skatepark facility in the Cross Park precinct so regularly. The Valley Reporter managed to capture some great action shots at the last Freestyle Now coaching jam session. Great fun was had by all on the day. Turn to page 22, and don’t forget to log online to Freestyle Now for more up and coming events.

Many fundraising events are being held in our local community at this time too. Please show your support and attend where you can, or dig deep and make a donation. Four exciting and creative enterprises are about to assist, teach and involve many people in all forms of the Arts. As you step through their doors, you can automatically tell the space is full of the ‘wow’ and ‘awesome’ factor. If you want to be apart of this, then go to page 26 to find out more. Lastly, do you know someone who has a hobby or special interest? The Valley Reporter would like to feature these interesting people within our community. This will only be possible if you tell us who they are. Who do you think is a community legend? Fiona Newland, Editor and Publisher.

Street Car Parking near Schools and in general With the start of school and many new children in kindy and pre-primary it is timely to remind new school-going parents of the local laws and traffic code. Parking on a verge is not permitted without written permission from the owner or occupier of the property adjacent to the verge. However Rangers will generally not issue an infringement unless there is a specific complaint from the owner or occupier of the adjoining property. Parking on or over a footpath is not permitted, at any time, this is strictly enforced and will result in a substantial fine to the owner or driver of the vehicle. Parking in someone else’s driveway without their permission is not very considerate – it is after all their access way to their home and they should be allowed to use it at anytime. Whilst parking on a verge is often preferred to parking on the road, because it is less congested, and the visibility on the street

is not as adversely affected, drivers still need to be mindful it is the responsibility of every driver to ensure that they are aware of, and comply with, parking and other traffic, requirements in a particular area. In some instances residents have made it clear they do not want parents parking on their verge (verbally and/or with signs), which is their choice and their right. You can still park on the street in those cases however it is not allowed within 10m of an intersection. Parking is congested near the early learning section, along Brooks, Caprea and Salicina - if possible could those parents that are more able to walk (have older children) park further along to leave room for the mums with prams etc. Disclaimer: This information has been compiled by Caroline Wielinga in consultation with the Ranger Services and to the best of her knowledge is accurate.

McAuliffe’s Wrought Iron Metal Art

Scarves are versatile, fashionable and popular pieces of clothing, which date all the way back to Ancient Rome, where they were originally used as sweat-cloths, and military rank sashes. Nowadays, they’re used not only for cleanliness and symbolism, but also for warmth, fashion, religion, and costumes. Any fan of TV series such as Doctor Who or Sherlock will know how unique and characteristic scarves can be to the image

of a person, fictional or real. Scarves have become increasingly trendy in recent years, for men, women, and children alike. They liven up any outfit, and will keep you warm during the winter months. Scarves are particularly great as gifts for family or friends living overseas, since they aren’t very heavy to send. If you need a scarf, for any and all occasions, call Christine on 9397 6104. Scarves will cost $15 each, or $20 for 2.

Concerns for Backyard Bandicoots being baited Many animals make the Shire of Kalamunda their home, which can at times lead to confusion about “which animal is which”. This particularly applies to distinguishing native bandicoots and introduced feral rodents, and residents are urged to familiarise themselves and their families with the difference between the two. CEO Rhonda Hardy said, “While control of rodents is an important health issue for residents and businesses in the Shire, it is equally important to ensure accurate identification of animals, before taking any action.” “This is particularly true when baby bandicoots are around, as the young bandicoots can often be mistaken for adult rats, a mistake that can have tragic consequences.” “The Shire has been notified of several instances of people undertaking baiting for rodents and, unintentionally, effecting harmless bandicoots, which are well-known for making their homes on properties throughout the hills area and can breed all year round.” Bandicoots, also known as Quenda or Southern Brown Bandicoots, are small native marsupials (up to 1.5 – 2kg) that are found in bushland habitats across the south-west of Western Australia, including around the escarpment and rural areas of the Shire. They have brown-grey fur, small rounded ears, a long pointy nose, long clawed feet (for digging) and a short fat tail. When they move they have a ‘bounding gait’ which is similar to a small rabbit. Significantly, bandicoots can’t climb at all. Rodents, including the Norway Rat, Roof Rat and House Mouse, are small mammals only weighing up to around 0.5kg that are often found in the urban setting, inside houses and other buildings. They usually have black brown or grey fur, larger oval shaped ears, a slightly pointed nose, short claws on their fore-limbs and a long slender tail which can be up to half the length of the animal. Rodents are excellent climbers (unlike bandicoots) and have a more ‘smooth, gliding’ gait when moving. If you are unsure what that mystery animal was that you saw out of the corner of your eye please contact the Shire of Kalamunda on 9257 9999 or kala.shire@kalamunda.wa.gov.au for assistance.

Noel Plowman has been a volunteer fire fighter for the Roleystone Bush Fire Brigade since 1981. For over thirty years, he has joined forces with a selfless group of career and volunteer fire fighters who have risked their lives for the safety of others. In the face of perilous danger, he has led from the front without hesitation. And on Australia Day this year, Mr Plowman’s commitment, courage and bravery was recognised on a national scale when he received the Australian Fire Service Medal (AFSM). The AFSM is awarded for distinguished service by a member of an Australian Fire Service. It was introduced in 1988, and replaced the Imperial awards of the Queen’s Fire Service Medal for Gallantry and the Queen’s Fire Service Medal for Distinguished Service. The medal is awarded by the Governor-General on the recommendation of the responsible Commonwealth, State and Territory ministers. Mr Plowman was inspired to become a volunteer fire fighter when his next-door neighbour alerted him of a fire burning by Turner Road in Roleystone. “My neighbour said assistance was needed at the fire and asked if I was free to come along,” recalled Mr Plowman. During his time as a volunteer fire fighter, Mr Plowman has served in a number of positions. He began as Lieutenant and Captain before taking on the role of Fire Control Officer from 1988 to 2001. Throughout this time, he also performed the role of Deputy Chief Bush Fire Control Officer for the City of Armadale (1993 1996) and Chief Bush Fire Control Officer (1996 - 1999). When the Fire and Rescue Service was introduced, he became Fire and Rescue Captain from 1999 to 2001. Following this, he was appointed Training Officer for the Roleystone Brigade and City of Armadale until 2002, before returning to the position of Fire and Rescue Captain where he has remained ever since. “Everything I’ve ever done has always been teamwork based. When it comes to fire fighting, you rely on the team you’re with for your safety and theirs. We’re there to do a job against a common foe. It’s the same alongside career fire fighters – we’re there get the job done,” he said. A visionary, Mr Plowman established a new cadet unit in 2006. The unit continues to offer youth in the local community an opportunity to explore fire fighting training. His patience

and commitment has enabled enthusiastic children to learn how to manage fire appliances, understand the different aspects of firefighting and gain valuable leadership skills, resulting in graduate cadets taking on senior roles in the Brigade. “The motivation to establish the cadet unit was two-fold. Firstly, it was to encourage new volunteers and members to join the Brigade. Secondly, it was to give younger kids who expressed an interest in becoming fire fighters an avenue to come through,” he said. Mr Plowman has always assisted in the operational side of the Brigade and remained a driving force behind many projects the station has performed. And when it comes to fighting a fire, he keeps his emotions under control. “It’s after a fire that your emotions kick in. From the Roleystone-Kelmscott bushfires to Darlington or Banjup, you can’t help but feel overwhelmed by the flames and possible destruction. Seeing the properties that are not prepared is heartbreaking.” Mr Plowman’s voluntary commitment and dedication to the Roleystone Fire Brigade and the West Australian Fire Service has now been acknowledged with the highest honour in fire fighting. The Australian Fire Service Medal epitomises the sacrifices he has made in serving the local community with distinction. The Valley Reporter wishes to take this opportunity to congratulate Noel Plowman on this honorary award. It is well deserved. “It was the real bees knees when I found out I had been nominated, and then receiving the award… it left me flabbergasted. The real reward, however, is still the feeling you get when you come home from saving lives and houses,” he said. Now in his 60s, Mr Plowman has vowed to continue fighting fires for as long as he’s got the breath and fitness to do so. His unfaltering loyalty to the fire service is a testament to his rare and remarkable character. “I’ve got a few years left in me, but my aim is to go on and keep teaching the youth and pass on the knowledge and experience I have gained over 30 years.” By Sky O’Brien.

One of the country’s biggest banks ANZ, expects house prices to rise as much as 15 - 20% before the end of next year……. Speaking at the Committee of Economic Development of Australia, ANZ Chief Economist Warren Hogan stated “the housing market is at the early stages of a solid cyclical upswing being pushed Australia wide by low interest rates, market shortfalls and new participants in the market such as Chinese/other overseas buyers who typically did not need to borrow in Australia”. Mr Hogan agreed with CBA Head Ian Narev that Australia was not in a house price bubble yet and confirmed that if you combine the top four banks overall growth, the banking system is only growing at a tepid 5% per annum which safeguards the potential for an overheated market.

Now is the time for the agriculture community in the Canning electorate to have a say on how Australia can build a sector that grows and delivers a greater return to our nation and the farm gate. Canning MHR Don Randall has welcomed the first steps Minister for Agriculture, Barnaby Joyce, has taken in developing the Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper by releasing the issues paper and calling on people to get involved. Minister Joyce said his hands-on experience both as a farmer and in agricultural finance and banking meant he was always looking for ways to improve the sector and he wanted other ideas. “Whether you’re drenching sheep, mustering cattle or sitting on a tractor, you always had in the back of your mind what you would do to make the show work better – well this is your opportunity to do precisely that,” Minister Joyce said. Mr Randall said the development of a White Paper was a key opportunity for those interested in the future of our primary industries to contribute

their ideas. “I have heard the concerns of people involved in the agriculture industry in Canning and the passion for this industry to survive underpins the need for Government inquiry into its sustainability,” he said. The issues paper identifies the key matters the government would like input on and will guide the development of the White Paper. Issues include access to finance, competitiveness through the value chain, reducing inefficient regulation, enhancing agricultural exports and managing drought for the longer term.

City of Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said these days it can sometimes be difficult to get the kids away from television and computer games to play outdoors. “We all know everyone needs physical recreation to stay fit and active and participation in a team sport can not only provide that physical activity but also lead to improved social skills, and build

lasting friendships.” “The program provides a vital link for young people in the City who may not otherwise be able to afford a sporting club’s fees, by providing the opportunity to everyone.” Local families who hold a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card are encouraged to register for KidSport to assist their children to participate in their chosen sport. The registration days will be held on Thursdays 20 and 27 February from 3pm6pm at the Armadale Library, Armadale Central Shopping Centre.

A ROLEYSTONE SENIORS HOUSING UPDATE The public tender for expressions of interest to purchase the old primary school site for seniors housing was unfortunately not successful. The government agency charged with disposal of this site will now seek private treaty to further their objectives.

As we stated previously over the past years, there will be many and varied obstacles on our journey to see this site with seniors housing built on it. This is just another. We will continue to keep you all informed. Pat Hart, Roleystone Seniors Housing Committee.

trees and bush fire threats With community consultation still being undertaken for the City of Armadale’s draft ‘Urban Forest Strategy’ I have been made aware that there are a small but loud number of City of Armadale ratepayers expressing their concerns with the plan to increase the number of mainly native trees in our district. Their concerns, from what I was advised, is that the fire threat will be increased. While everyone has the right to express their opinions, it is how these concerns are taken on board in final decision making. The City of Armadale has finally recognised that our wonderful natural attributes make the City of Armadale a stand out from many other local governments, and they want to enhance and highlight this through this well-thought out draft strategy. It will be great in particular to see some of those areas in Armadale that have very few, if any, street trees take on a whole new look, with local residents being encouraged to participate in this program. I believe the majority of residents would be pleased with this initiative, and to also recognise that trees can and will benefit our community by lowering temperature, increasing air quality, increasing biodiversity, and other social pluses during this time of climate change. I know many of us are hoping that this Strategy will have the ability to influence planning decisions in the future, as it is very disturbing at the moment to see many native trees being bulldozed for new developments. The City we trust will, while acknowledging the above negative comments about fire, continue to progress the draft ‘Urban Forest Strategy’, and continue working with residents in fire-prone areas as to the best ways to protect their property from fire risks. The draft Strategy is on the City’s website. Pat Hart.

By Dr Judith Congrene BSc BVMS CVA Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine is incredibly complex, with a lot of theory which is completely foreign and unrecognisable from my undergraduate veterinary studies at Murdoch. It was very strange and nerve-wracking to be back in the building where I studied Anatomy as a second year student in 1979. As I looked at the fellow students who joined me for the practical acupuncture classes, it was very clear that some of these students probably hadn’t even been born when I was doing my first stint at Murdoch. I was amused, but not surprised, to hear that one lovely young lady from Singapore was born in 1985; the year I graduated from Murdoch vet school. Since my first acupuncture/herbal module at Murdoch University in December 2009, I estimate that I have spent approximately $20,000 in course fees, every dollar of which is worth seeing the relief from chronic pain in my mare’s eyes only three minutes after a little veterinary needlework. It is particularly poignant writing this news for the Valley Reporter today, as I face the 2nd anniversary of the passing of my special companion Amy passing, at home, on the 13th of February. This achievement belongs to her too, for always patiently sitting by my side, at my feet, through the many hundreds of hours of study needed for the qualification from the Chi Institute in Florida. My precious Amy is with me in spirit, when I connect with the heart of a patient during one of my veterinary home visits. When I ask her to be with me, to help and support my work, and my patient, I can

Boral quarry proposal The City is aware of significant public concern relating to the proposal from Boral to establish an asphalt plant within its quarry facility in Martin. City of Gosnells Mayor Dave Griffiths said that the application for the asphalt plant is to be determined by the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) under clause 13 of the Metropolitan Region Scheme. “The City of Gosnells will not make the final decision on this application, but will provide all of the public submissions received and Council’s recommendation to the WAPC. This recommendation will be based on local planning grounds.” “These grounds will include the impact of the proposal on local roads and the visibility of the facility,” Mayor Dave Griffiths said. Mayor Griffiths stressed that the City’s recommendation will not consider environmental factors associated with the proposal as it is understood that the WAPC will take advice on these matters from the Department of Environmental Regulation (DER).

“The WAPC and DER are the specialised State Government agencies with expertise to consider such matters,” Mayor Griffiths said. “Consequently, residents concerned with potential impacts on health or the environment need to raise these matters directly with the State Government as this is the decision making authority.” It is understood that Boral is making direct contact with the WAPC and the DER about the proposal. The City is likely to make a recommendation to the WAPC in the next few months. Ref: www.gosnells.wa.gov.au. Published on Friday 31 January, 2014.

Rawsome revolution continues with rawbles and rawkus bites rawkus bites have three layers of smooth hazelnut, with a dash of whole hazelnuts. “We’re big fans of chocolate hazelnut in the Rawsome kitchen, and the rawkus bites have a great creamy hazelnut praline taste,” Gampfer said. “The time was right to add to our existing range, which includes our best-selling carawmel slice, kapow bars, moon rocks, choc mint slice and mini-donuts.” Laila Gampfer established Rawsome (literally “raw, so me”), after being diagnosed with coeliac disease in 2010. Creating raw versions of conventional products was her driving force, and the business has gone from strength to strength in the past 18 months. Operating from Anna Gare’s commercial kitchen in North Fremantle, Rawsome now supplies products to more than 100 independent cafes and retail outlets across Perth, including several IGA store. They have also recently expanded into the Melbourne market. In May last year, the business took a serious leap forward by becoming the first-ever external supplier of cakes and treats to Miss Maud’s 15 pastry houses, the famed Swedish institution which has always previously provided its own. “Rawsome only uses top-end ingredients, and we work hard to make the products taste great. So many people are tired of highly processed foods, so they’re really embracing the raw food alternatives now on offer,” Gampfer said. More details are available at www.rawsome.me.

Popular raw food manufacturer Rawsome has released two new product lines for 2014, adding to its range of deliciously decadent sweet treats. Made from raw, quality ingredients such as nuts, fruits and a variety of superfoods, all products are gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, egg-free, soy-free, and made without any cooking or baking. Rawsome founder and business owner Laila Gampfer said her team has put a good mix of love and effort into creating the new products. “We have a super-enthusiastic and talented team in the Rawsome kitchen and everyone has been extremely passionate about crafting these new products,” she said. Rawsome’s raw balls, known as “rawbles”, come in five different flavours, each named after a woman: Florence - Embodying the GreekMediterranean feel, this rawble has a fresh flavour with a hint of fig and fennel. Jemima - Described by the Rawsome team as “just divine”, it is an ideal combination of zesty orange and chocolate. Lola - Lemon and macadamia come together to give tastes reminiscent of limoncello, Bounty Chocolate bars, and lemon pie. Rosie - Inspired by traditional Turkish Delight, it features pistachio nuts and rose flavours. Wanda - This rawble has the decadent taste of raw white chocolate and raspberry, rolled in a coating of coconut and raspberry dust. Inspired by Baci chocolates, Rawsome’s

The West Coast Eagles met with MP’s and other interested people in Canberra this week to discuss a proposed training facility at Lathlain Park. Canning MHR Don Randall said the Eagles needed to find a new home due to the development of a stadium in Burswood. Mr Randall attended the Eagles function where players Nic Naitanui and Beau Waters were special guests. Also in attendance were former club legends Ross Glendinning and David Wirrpanda. The club’s plans for the project included a multi-use sports and community facility, and the club hoped construction would commence in July 2015. “If this goes ahead, the local community would have access to ovals for recreational use, along with new and improved leisure areas,” he said. “As reported, plans for the new grounds would also potentially be a new home

for the Wirrpanda Foundation and a new home for the SASR Trust, an agency that provides support to members of the Special Air Service Regiment and their dependants, who become deceased or permanently disabled as a result of service or training.”

Food Alchemy with Vanessa Jean Quick Frittata: If you eat eggs and you would love a quick, protein meal to sustain you throughout your day this simple and adaptable recipe will have you singing in delight! This is a fabulous addition to a child’s lunchbox for this very reason. I recommend using organic free range eggs or your own/friends chook eggs. Ingredients: 6 organic eggs 2 potatoes steamed, diced Sea salt/herbamare/tamari to taste Kale or other greens (maybe from your garden); finely chopped Dried oregano and basil to taste – if you have fresh herbs add these also Seeds for the top (optional) Method: Crack and beat the eggs with the salt of your choice add the potatoes, chopped greens and herbs. Heat a frying pan with coconut oil, once warm add the mixture, placing lid over the top. After 10 minutes reduce the heat, and check the progress of the frittata. Replace lid and continue cooking at low heat until top is cooked. (Alternatively you can place this under a grill if you would like a crisp finish). Once it is cooked, the mixture will rise. Turn off the heat and remove the lid and allow to stand. Serve with your favourite salad or garlic butter mushrooms, tomato salsa, guacamole etc. If you have any questions, call me on 0410 421 213.

LEARNING TO DRIVE? Originally from the UK, I trained as a Cartographic Draftsman before realising I needed a job that was both flexible and portable. So, I taught my first driving lesson in 1976 and gained my semi trailer truck licence. A few years later, my wife and I began our life’s journey when we emigrated to Sydney, Australia. A week later I am driving a semi trailer across the Sydney Harbour Bridge in search of Botany Bay. I “lost” my driver’s side rearview mirror in the first 500 metres, which set me up for a fun day. It wasn’t long before I began teaching again with Barnes Driving School. When we moved to Perth, I continued to teach people how to drive cars and motorcycles. We moved to Broome in 2009, where the Department of Transport employed me as the Regional Driving Assessor for the West Kimberley. As well as assessing students to drive cars, bikes and trucks, I helped to develop the MILU (Mobile Indigenous Licensing Unit). Our task was to take the DOT services into remote communities and help local people gain and retain their driver’s licence. As the assessor, my job was to assess “to the standard”, but I soon realised it was impossible to test a student to a “standard” when they had never been taught the “standard” in the first place. Now the circle has come around: in order to learn to drive properly, you need to be taught right in the first place. Good drivers are drivers with good driving habits that have been learnt over time. Home in Roleystone, I am now ready to teach our next generation of good drivers. To make a booking contact Bryan McCready, Driving Instructor - Licence 5737 on 0407 479 109.

If you have any of these conditions, you have an increased risk of developing heart disease. Other risk factors include smoking and being physically inactive, but that doesn’t mean there is nothing you can do about it. Pam Bailey, Clinical Nutritionist from Nutrition in Balance says that heart disease is mainly preventable, without having to give your life the gymjunkie-with-no-enjoyablefood overhaul. There are many small changes that you can make to your diet and lifestyle over a period of time to reduce your risk of heart disease, and generally improve your health.

For example, adding cinnamon to your breakfast may help regulate your blood sugar levels, pistachios may help reduce your blood pressure, and eating oats may regulate your cholesterol levels. Shedding just 5 to 10% of your body weight reduces your risk of developing heart disease and Type 2 Diabetes. Losing weight doesn’t have to be as painful as some people think either. You may just need to make some small modifications or reduce your portion sizes. Planning your meals in advance can be a great way to avoid impulse eating. Also cooking in bulk and freezing the extra portions gives you a quick meal for those times when you don’t feel like cooking after a long day at work, which can lead to temptation to buy unhealthy take-away. Pam Bailey is available for personal consultations at Yes2Life in Armadale. Call 9498 3788 for an appointment. For more information about Pam, visit www.yes2life. com.au and click on the Practitioner menu.

CHILLI LOVERS UNITE! … LIVELIGHTER ARALUEN’S FREMANTLE CHILLI FESTIVAL 2014 Chilli lovers unite, indeed! The event that has grown from humble beginnings at Araluen Botanic Park, Roleystone some 12 years ago to become one of the world’s most popular hot food festivals, returns with great anticipation in 2014. The expanded and even ‘hotter’ LiveLighter Araluen’s Fremantle Chilli Festival 2014 is expected to attract a record attendance at the Esplanade Reserve, Fremantle over the weekend of 8th & 9th March. Opening times are 10am – 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday. “The popularity of this festival 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 proximity of public transport plus the day-of-entry festival unlimited pass-out policy allows patrons the opportunity to make a day and experience all that this great port city offers,” he adds. Here’s what’s on offer for 2014: • Around 25% more vendors offering a diverse range of chilli plants, foods, beverages (including exotic beers, wines and spirits), tastings, products and information. • Live entertainment featuring performances by the energetic Junkadelic Brass Band, and much more. • Family-friendly ‘Carnival’ atmosphere with amazing roving entertainment and workshops by the Spare Parts Puppet Theatre. • Cooking demonstrations featuring a variety of guest chefs at the Clancy’s Fremantle Chef Stage. • Learn ‘How-to’ on a range of topics at the Bailey’s D-I-Y Stage. • Chill out with Mix94.5FM personalities at the on-site broadcast site and Chill-out Lounge all weekend. • Win instant prizes. Come in your best ‘Chilli’ costume and win. • Pitch baseball with the ABL

Perth Heat team in the special ‘pitching tent’, meet the players, get autographs, Perth Heat merchandise, etc. • Non-Chilli lovers will also be well catered for.

For the health and comfort of others both this event and Araluen Botanic Park are Smoke Free venues.” Healthway’s Executive Director, David Malone, said the LiveLighter message focussed on encouraging WA adults to eat well, be physically active and maintain a healthy weight. “LiveLighter highlights the link between being overweight and chronic diseases,” Mr Malone said. “The message encourages people to make good lifestyle choices and the activities and displays at this festival will show how to select food and prepare nutritious meals which is important in maintaining good health.” Like to learn more?

Janet Pan, an entrant into this year’s Miss Humanity Australia, is one very determined and altruistic young woman. Last year, in lieu of receiving birthday gifts for her 23rd birthday, Janet requested that her friends and family donate money towards fundraising for charity: water, a not-for-profit organisation which works to provide clean drinking water to communities in developing countries. With the help of her social network, Janet managed to raise over $1200 for charity: water, an achievement she rated as her highest of 2013 (beating even her completion of her architecture degree). Continuing the humanitarian mission of charity: water, Janet is now promoting the charity music event “Music in the Hills”, a fundraising and awareness affair being held at the Affinity Café in Roleystone, on Sunday the 30th of March, at 3pm. It will be an outdoor picnic setting, with live music and

performances with African drums, dances and singers, as well as other entertainments, like silent auction and raffle draws. It’s the perfect family event! All the profit made from the event will go to building the clean water project in Kenya. Currently, the organisers of the event are seeking sponsors to assist them, so as to raise as much funds as possible. It’ll be great exposure for community businesses, so any help towards promoting “Music in the Hills” would be very much appreciated. To contact Janet Pan, call 0411 019 704. Feel free to check out the Facebook page for the Music in the Hills event at this link: www.facebook.com/ events/13889696911364108/.

It has been a busy month at the Club. Many people have booked the restaurant and positive feedback suggests they have thoroughly enjoyed Chef John’s fantastic fare. On the 14th of February, the Valentine’s evening dinner at Windows on Wygonda provided the perfect backdrop for a lovely night out. There will be a St Patricks Night with the Ferrymen playing on Saturday 15th March. Further details will be published at a later date, while the regular Blues and Roots will continue on their Sunday afternoon date. In the meantime, come and try out the fantastic Summer Menu in the newly air conditioned Wygonda Lounge on a Wednesday, Friday or Saturday. The Club carpark has now been completely line-marked with all entrances, exits and parking bays clearly highlighted to ensure a more efficient parking area. It would be appreciated if members could leave the designated parking bays for Staff and Committee free. Unfortunately we have had some vandalism to these signs and the police are investigating who was responsible for the damage. If anyone has any information regarding the incident, please contact the Club. I would like to thank the hard working Committee for giving up their Sunday to carry out the line marking and painting of the flagpole. We have also completed a sign which now directs visitors to the car park on first entering the Club driveway, and are about to build a new brick entrance

off the Wygonda Road access. So come down and join the Club to enjoy these changes and some of the best facilities in Roleystone for a very low membership fee. You can enjoy beer and wine prices well below all other licensed premises in the Roleystone area. The ‘Chase the Joker’ Competition is up again after one of our members ‘Perry’ won the $3200 jackpot on New Year’s Eve. The current jackpot is now up to $1050 with over $1000 to be won in consolation prizes if you don’t pick the Joker. Come into the Club on Monday or Wednesday and try your luck. The Corporate Bowls competition has been very successful and is now in its 4th week. If you want to start playing bowls, you will be more than welcomed by our bowling members so come on down on a Wednesday night and have a look at this fun competition. On a serious note, members are reminded that if you have a suggestion for the committee, put it in writing so it can be considered at the monthly committee meeting and you will certainly be advised of the outcome of their decision. For all information on the Club’s activities, check out our Facebook page or go to our new website www.roleystonecountryclub. com. I look forward to seeing you at the Club. Michael Hansen, President.

On the corner of Gillam Drive and Railway Avenue Kelmscott, a group of well known local identities have started an artistic teaching venture that promises to be innovative and new. An experienced and highly qualified team of teachers and practitioners will be teaching dance, art and film classes for all ages. The Artory is the ‘umbrella home’ of four exciting and creative enterprises that assist, teach and involve others in all forms of the Arts. The building is now the home base of Explosive Dance & Theatre Company, MADI Works Inc, Artsmartz, Filmsmartz and Armadale FilmFest Inc. Whilst each company have their own identity, as you step through the doors of the building you can automatically tell the space is full of the ‘wow’ and ‘awesome’ factor. Artsmartz has a Taster Day on the 22nd February that will be full of arts workshops for children to experience, while people can register for both children and adult classes that begin on the 26th. They also have a series of weekend workshops available for adults that marry both creative and positive empowerment, keeping the groups small to ensure individual attention. Explosive Dance & Theatre Company was established in 1998 and already has a strong following. They have begun their term, however enrolments are always welcome. They cater for all forms of dance, which include modelling and singing lessons in their repertoire. Filmsmartz offers a series of short (six week) courses in various aspects of film making. Each course consists of two hours of workshop tuition per week with an emphasis on hands on activities. The Artory not only offers classes and workshops, but has space available for rent if you have a creative idea or community group that needs a home. For more information please go to www. theartory.com.au or email theartory@ iinet.net.au.


oleystone Tee-Ball R and Baseball Club Inc.

Welcome back to the second half of the season. We hope everyone has had an enjoyable break and are ready for the next few weeks of tee-ball. To finish off the first half of the season, Santa made a surprise visit to the Under 8’s games, which came to an abrupt halt when he arrived on the fire brigade support vehicle with sirens and lights aglow. Many excited children greeted him, and many thanks go to Rob Van Uden and Ryan Sutherland. Our State players have continued to train and attend carnivals throughout the break, gaining insight for the State Championship Competition over the long weekend in March. Both teams have done an awesome job in representing our Club with the U10’s winning 4 from 4 at Forrestfield in extreme weather conditions. Melville carnival was also challenging, but with both teams playing opponents in higher grades, we’ve seen some fantastic tee-ball both at bat and in the field. All players showed some great signs of improvement and learnt a lot from their practice games. Our last carnival will be at Thornlie Tee-ball Club on Sunday 16th February followed by the Championship games in March. The State players also had the opportunity to be “Baseball Buddies” at a Perth Heat game. The U12’s on 27th December and U10’s on 24th January, with Perth Heat

winning both games attended (as well as the Championship this year). Players were taken for a tour around the ground, met and talked with some of the Perth Heat players and at the start of the game, ran on to the field with the players. A great night was had by all, with a great cheer squad from Roleystone at the games.

AUSSIES CHALLENGED TO BE BRAVE AND SHAVE

Australians from all walks of life are being challenged to help improve the lives of people with blood cancer by signing up for the Leukaemia Foundation’s ‘World’s Greatest Shave’, which will run from the 13th to the 16th of March. The challenge to ‘be brave and shave’ is expected to see more than 150,000 people get sponsored to shave or colour their hair to raise funds for research and care for Western Australians with blood cancer. In WA, the goal is to raise more than $2.95 million. “Every day, around 31 Australians are expected to be diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma, including 23 people every week in WA. Every 46 minutes an Australian is diagnosed with a blood cancer.” said Andrew York, General Manager of the Leukaemia Foundation in WA. “Blood cancer is devastating. In acute cases, treatment can begin within 24 hours of diagnosis. For those living in regional areas, it can mean leaving work, school and family and relocating to the city, adding to the shock and emotional turmoil. The World’s Greatest Shave is the Leukaemia Foundation’s most important fundraiser, providing vital funds to help lessen the impact for people affected by blood cancer. Money raised also supports important ongoing blood cancer research. Research is improving survival rates, but sadly every two hours someone in Australia loses their life to blood cancer.” The Leukaemia Foundation is Australia’s peak body for blood cancer, dedicated to the care and cure of the people and families living with blood cancer and related blood disorders. It receives no ongoing government funding, and relies on community support to fund its important work. Last year, thousands of people accessed the Foundation’s free services, including information, emotional support, transport to and from treatment and accommodation for those from regional areas who are required to relocate closer to hospital. Since it began in 1998, Australians have raised more than $158 million through the World’s Greatest Shave, with funds channelled into the Leukaemia Foundation’s Vision to Cure and Mission to Care. Nationally, the World’s Greatest Shave target is $20.5 million this year. “What better way to show your Aussie spirit of mateship then helping others with a few laughs along the way?” said Andrew York. “The sooner people sign up, the more money they can potentially raise.”

The Valley Reporter would like to ask the community to show your support to Roleystone local Emma Wray, who will be participating in this year’s World’s Greatest Shave. Emma can be sponsored via her fundraising page at http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/ emmawray. Sign up for the World’s Greatest Shave at worldsgreatestshave.com, or by calling 1800 500 088.
