YOUR Region. YOUR Magazine. YOUR Valley Reporter. Our local Roleystone Netball Club has grown from strength to strength with a whopping 25 teams registered for the 2015 winter season. Not bad for a little Club south of the river! The Valley Reporter wishes all players, coaches and club volunteers the best of luck as they start their new season. Thinking of burning that pile of rubbish? Remember you need to obtain a burning permit. Without a permit, it is an offence under the Bush Fires Act 1954 and carries a penalty of $4500 and subsequent offence of $10,000. Where do you get a permit? Go to page 7 for further information. In true community spirit the Roleystone-Karragullen Cricket Club have topped the nation in the Toyota ‘Good for Cricket’ raffle. See the full details on page 10. This is a fantastic effort from another local sporting club and congratulations from The Valley Reporter.

Contrary to what people might think, skateboarding is a sport, an art form, a lifestyle, and a culture. Kids have been doing it for decades, and it has even become an extreme sport. We can all benefit from skateboarding even if it is just recreationally. Not only does skateboarding get us outside, but it can also help us cover large distances faster and more easily. It also provides many health benefits too; see a list of them on page 17. Something The Valley Reporter readers may not be aware of is that, as of April 2015, drivers on Western Australian roads will not be able to use normal rope to secure their loads on the back of their vehicles or trailers. The new laws will bring WA in line with many of the eastern states. Read the full story on page 22. Why not join in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea and help the Cancer Council raise vital funds for cancer

prevention, research and support services? Simply gather together your friends, family and colleagues, put the kettle on and tuck into some delicious and healthy morning tea treats. There couldn’t be an easier way to help make a difference. Go to page 24 for registration details. Approximately 3000 people from around Australia and New Zealand are expected to compete in the 2015 Australia Dragon Boat Championships at Champion Lakes from April 14 to April 18. What a great event for the City of Armadale. It will be a sight to be behold. Please show your support and get on down there. Please show your support by shopping smart and shopping local at One on One Transport, Brackenridge Pure Indulgence, Genesis in the Hills, Core Cider House and Property Care.

The Roleystone Netball Club is going from strength to strength in their 40th year with a whopping 25 teams registered for the 2015 KDNA Winter Season. With grading now complete, all teams have started training at several locations across the City of Armadale. The committee would like to take this opportunity to thank the Roleystone Community College, Armadale Primary School and Pioneer Village School for supporting the teams training there during the week. Cross Park has never been busier with 16 teams training there during the week. The netball community are very much anticipating and looking forward to the commencement of works on the upgrade of the two old courts. This will help ease congestion, especially with 8 teams training on a Thursday night! Congratulations to the following 14 girls who made it onto the 2015 KDNA Squad. We’d also like to acknowledge Kristy Hodges (coach of Roley Mavericks) who will be, for the second year running, coaching a KDNA team.

On Thursday April 2nd, principal photography of the Roleystone Community College’s “Our School’s a Star” video presentation began, with Simon Akkerman ACS (President of the Australian Cinematography Society’s WA branch) and his pilot Rodni Cumanov, visiting the College with their DJI Phantom drone. The entire College community, including staff, students, and supportive parents, gathered on the school oval to be a part of the 30 second video presentation. Further shooting of the presentation will occur in the Central

Institute of Technology during the term break. Thanks to the strong ties between CIT and the Roleystone Academy of Digital Media (RADM), the RADM students will be given a great opportunity to see how a television commercial is pieced together throughout the entire process. Many thanks go to all involved in this venture. For more information or an enrolment package for the Roleystone Academy of Digital Media, please feel free to contact the College or visit the Roleystone Community College website.

Washing and grooming is not always about making your dog look like a show dog. It is necessary to keep an eye on your dog’s skin, ears, and nails, as well as ensuring they remain clean, fresh, and comfortable. Blue Wheelers Mobile Dog Wash and Grooming is Australia’s number one choice in mobile dog grooming. We are fully trained, certified and insured, and specialise in breedspecific grooming. Our mobile dog wash includes pre-brushing to loosen dirt, specialist treatment shampoos, flea rinse and whitening shampoo, eyes and ears gently cleaned, nails trimmed, towel and blow dried, and a doggy treat after every wash. Our mobile dog groom includes a complete dog wash service plus full body clips, ears cleaned, scissoring, detangling, maintenance, all breeds, all sizes, and a doggy treat after every wash. Regular brushing and grooming will prevent matting, which will reduce the need to clip the dog’s hair to extremely short lengths. It pays to look after your dog with Blue Wheelers Mobile Dog Wash and Grooming service. After a groom and a wash, we guarantee your dog will feel good, smell great, and leave a few less tumbleweeds rolling across the lounge room floor! We also offer pensioner discounts. For more information and to book an appointment, please email, visit or call Alexi Christidis on 0404 485 137. Testimonials: “I have an 11-year-old Cocker Spaniel who over the years has been groomed and bathed by many different companies because he is nervous and timid. Some companies even told me he was too difficult to cut and bath so don’t come back! When we moved to Roleystone 4 years ago, I called Alexi at Blue Wheelers. He took Snoopy on, and due to Alexi’s patience and handling experience over the years, Snoopy is less timid and nervous and almost looks forward to his clips and baths – well maybe not the baths” - Iain Maclennan. “Our little dog was in need of a groom. She normally isn’t very good with strangers. Alexi from Blue Wheelers came to us and our dog took to him right away. My 2 young children love watching through the doggy ear window of the blue wheeler and Alexi was happy to have their company during the wash and groom. We are booking him in for regular visits now” - Kimberley Beasley.

COUNCILLOR NOTES by Caroline Wielinga

Ministerial Visit The State Government Minister’s cabinet meeting held at the City of Armadale offices was an important opportunity for Ministers to see Armadale and the region, and for the City to discuss areas of concern and showcase areas of success. Old Primary School Site The Robin Road Primary School site has been sold to a gentleman from the

northern suburbs, who is apparently very keen to develop the site. The site is zoned for seniors at a higher density than the regular residential land, if it is developed for seniors living. Achieving a balance between development of numerous units and retention of mature trees for amenity will be the next challenge. Netball/Tennis Courts The Roleystone Netball Club has raised considerable money for resurfacing ball courts, and was successful in applying for grant funding as well. Congratulations on all the hard work! Mens Shed, Community Garden and Landcare Centre Several community groups are looking to apply for Lotterywest grant funding to fund buildings proposed to be placed at either Cross Park or Lina Hart Reserve. Cross Park is obviously the most central, but Lina Hart on Westbourne has more room for larger facilities. All of these groups and facilities are important assets for our community, and it is hoped the funding applications can be completed in the coming weeks/months. Disclaimer: These comments represent the understanding of Councillor Wielinga. For additional information, please contact the City of Armadale.

Singing the praises of young people Five local musicians are writing a song for this year’s National Youth Week (NYW) event being hosted by the City of Gosnells at Westfield Street Reserve, Maddington on Saturday 18 April. The song focuses on this year’s theme ‘It starts with us’ and will be performed at the City’s annual NYW event. Despite performing and writing with different local bands, the young musicians are all part of the City’s Soundlab Music Crew program and have come together specifically for this song-writing project. City of Gosnells Mayor Dave Griffiths praised the commitment of the group, which will have written lyrics and music for the new song in less than two months. “The work being done by these talented teenagers, aged between 13 and 17, highlights the importance of National Youth Week and really shows what young people can achieve,” the Mayor said. “The City’s NYW event during the April school holidays will not only give the community a chance to hear their song for the first time but also to come together to celebrate and support our young people. “There will be plenty of things to keep young people entertained, as well as lots of family activities to encourage

parents and the wider community to join in the fun.” The City’s free NYW event runs from 1-5pm at Westfield Street Reserve and includes a skate competition, live bands and DJ, giant inflatables, food and drinks, interactive art and heaps more. Other members of the Soundlab Music Crew, as well as young people involved with the Gosnells Youth Advisory Council and Maddington Skate Park Users Group will be assisting the City with running the event. Beyond Skate, Gosnells Baptist Church youth group, Public Transport Authority and Headspace will also be attending. This event is supported by the Department of Local Government and Communities.

Western Australian cricket clubs have received a bonus injection of $77,875 after the Toyota ‘Good for Cricket’ raffle recently culminated in Byron Kakulas of City Beach receiving a new Toyota RAV4 GX 2WD 2.0L Petrol. The Toyota ‘Good for Cricket’ raffle was a joint initiative of Toyota and the Western Australian Cricket Association, with all funds generated by ticket sales directed back to the club that sold them and assisting in generating additional revenue for facility and program improvements. A total of 44 clubs across the state registered for the Good for Cricket initiative at www., with the sale of each 10-ticket book capable of generating $50 for the club. In total, clubs across WA raised a whopping $77,875, third overall among the states behind Victoria ($94,505) and NSW ($79,915). Roleystone Karragullen Cricket Club lead the clubs nationwide when it came to ticket sales, raising a huge $14,895! To top it off, 6th prize (a Panasonic HD LED LCD) was also sold by Roleystone Karragullen – and was won by Patrick Fisher. David Clear, WACA General Manager Game Development, said the raffle helped generate crucial funds that would assist in ensuring the sustainability of clubs. “The WACA shares Toyota’s passion for growing the game from the grassroots up,” Mr Clear said. “Local cricket clubs are the lifeblood of communities right around WA, and the Good for Cricket Raffle is giving them another

way to raise money to improve facilities and introduce more new participants to our great game. “This creates better clubs, healthier communities and makes the competition stronger at every level.” Former Australian captain and Toyota Good for Cricket Ambassador Steve Waugh said the successful launch of the raffle would strengthen WA cricket and help the state continue to produce world-class talent. “Western Australia has a proud history of producing some of the game’s great players, from Lillie and Hussey through to current stars such as Shaun Marsh,” Mr Waugh said. “Those players couldn’t have got their start without their local clubs. It’s great to see the Good for Cricket Raffle digging in to help grassroots clubs raise money because that means a stronger competition at every level.” Regional General Manager for Toyota Western Australia Michael Beros said the company’s involvement in the initiative was a natural fit. “Toyota is a passionate, long-time supporter of Australian sport and the Toyota Good for Cricket Raffle is all about making it easy for clubs to raise money and continue growing the next generation of stars,” Mr Beros said. “Toyota congratulates all the clubs who got involved and raised money, as well as our major prize winners. We look forward to involving even more clubs next season.” To find out more about the Toyota Good for Cricket Raffle and see the full list of winners visit Kat Dumont, Partnerships Account Manager WA Cricket Association.

For All Aspects Of Plumbing And Gas Including Electronic Leak Detection

By Dr Judith Congrene BSc BVMS CVA In my daily work as a mobile vet, I am pleased to be able to help pet owners with their concerns for looking after elderly and chronically ill pets at home. Being able to prevent and relieve suffering, and to support the best possible quality of life in the comfort of home, without stress or excessive intervention, this is exactly the type of care I was able to give my own precious dog Amy for her last few years of life. This is what palliative care provides; the services for helping the elderly to lead full and happy lives in their own homes. This is a well recognised service for people as they approach their senior years, but very little is offered for pets as an everyday need in the community. Animals need to be functionally independent and mobile, especially for large breed dogs, so for many dogs the treatment of osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, and Wobblers Syndrome is offered at home via medication, acupuncture, body work and reiki. These treatments can vastly improve the quality of life by reducing, managing, and controlling the pain and other symptoms. Decisions can be made regarding care and treatment, as well as determining the risks versus the benefits of treatment.

The best course of action is to consider the symptoms and condition of the patient, then determine a plan for palliative care options, considering the wishes of the family, and their input. For older pets reaching the end of their life, a very important role in my veterinary work with the owners is to assist the owners to start preparing to make decisions for euthanasia when the time is considered right, to relieve suffering and assist the process of dying in a humane way.

The new Student-Centred Funding Model (SCFM) has increased funding for all primary schools in the Darling Range electorate with over a $3 million increase. The school budgets were finalised based on the February 2015 student census. Primary schools in the Darling Range electorate will benefit financially from the new SCFM with more than $3 million being distributed to the schools. Roleystone Community College will receive a funding increase of over $660,000 and Pickering Brook benefits with an increase of over $170,000. “The new funding model recognises the importance of allocating additional monies to assist in the development of individual students who have higher needs.” said Mr Simpson “This is a monumental large-scale reform in school funding aimed at ensuring each student receives the support they need. The primary schools in our electorate have benefited greatly from this new funding model receiving over $3 million in additional monies.” The SCFM is the result of a major review conducted by the University of Melbourne. The finalised school budget includes an additional $46.5 million in funding for schools in Western Australia. There has been a 3.2 per cent increase in students enrolled in public schools this year totalling 292,952. Additional funding has been provided for Aboriginality, disability, social disadvantage and English as an additional language. The additional funding will enable schools to implement strategies to benefit these students.

Organised by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, Food Revolution Day is a global day of action aimed at putting food education back on the school curriculum. An advocate for healthy and nutritious food, Jamie believes that educating children about food in a fun and engaging way equips them with the basic skills they need to lead healthier, happier lives and reverses the rise in obesity levels and diet-related disease. Food Revolution Day 2015 takes place on Friday 15 May. There are plenty of ways you can get involved, from whipping up delicious recipes with your kids, hosting a foodie event in your community or challenging your workmates to a cookoff, to sharing your photographs and the #foodrevolutionday via social media. You can also register your school online and join in with Jamie’s exclusive cooking lesson on Food Revolution Day, or become a Food Revolution Day ambassador. “My wish is to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity,” said Jamie. There are currently 42 million children under the age of 5 who are either overweight or obese, and it is predicted that by 2030, 41% of the world’s population will be overweight or obese. In turn, diet-related diseases, which include heart failure and stroke, continue to place increased pressure on our already overworked health systems. Food Revolution Day is a response to

The magnificent colour on the fruit tree leaves showing autumns beginning.

A CONNECTED COMMUNITY – THE BENEFITS What does it mean to be a ‘connected community’ and what are the benefits? Connected communities know who their neighbours are. They have the ability to react very quickly in the case of an emergency, such as a bushfire, tornado, large rain event, accident or criminal action, to seek their neighbour’s assistance or check on their welfare, and know whom to contact if someone needs help. Connected communities know about their local groups, organisations and businesses and support them where possible to enable them to continue supporting the community in many ways. With numerous local Facebook sites, it is amazing how quickly relevant information can be shared to assist friends, families and neighbours. However, it is necessary to pass any important information on to those people who are not on Facebook, or to the Police or local government depending on what is appropriate. Bushfire Ready Groups and Neighbourhood Watch are organisations in Roleystone and Karragullen that encourage and assist neighbours to link with neighbours. They offer information that is critical to you and your family’s welfare and asset protection and strengthen links in your street. We are so fortunate to be living in this magnificent environment and caring community, and while Roleystone and Karragullen are already very strong, close communities, statistics show that more effort needs to be

made to make those connections between neighbours and to learn what is necessary for every family’s welfare. Throughout the year, there will be opportunities to attend joint meetings held by Bushfire Ready and Neighbourhood Watch. I encourage you to attend to help Roleystone and Karragullen become an even stronger and more connected community. Pat Hart. CRIME PREVENTION If you see a suspicious activity occurring, please call the Police on 13 14 44. If you believe a door-to-door salesperson is acting suspiciously, advise your neighbours and then call 13 14 44. The community are the eyes and ears for the Police and can play a key role in crime prevention. If the Police are not made aware then they cannot act; the quicker they receive information the better. Place the number 13 14 44 in your phone. If you have information that can assist Police in other suspected criminal incidents you can ring Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 and do not have to give your name. Place the Crime Stopper number 1800 333 000 in your phone as well. Only call 000 for emergency purposes. There are numerous brochures from Neighbourhood Watch at the Roleystone Family Centre with information to help you learn more about you and your family’s personal safety, how to secure your property, how to identify home drug labs, plus a lot more.

WINTER SPECIALS Deluxe Facial with Parafin Manicure $100 (Saving $40)

Skateboarding is a sport, an art form, a lifestyle, and a culture. Kids have been doing it for decades, and it has even become an extreme sport. We can all, however, benefit from skateboarding even if it’s just recreationally. Not only does skateboarding get us outside, but it can also help us cover large distances faster and more easily. Here are Samir Becic and Health Fitness Revolution‘s best health benefits of skateboarding: “With healthy lifestyle, we can avoid 60-70% of known illnesses.” Samir Becic Follow Samir on twitter: https:// Follow Samir on Facebook: https:// Provides flexibility: Ankles must remain flexible and body should stay limber while skating. The more tense and inflexible a person is, the harder it is for them to skate. Offers full body workout: You’re moving your feet and your legs, you’re using your arms to help balance. You’re twisting your body. All these things must happen simultaneously, giving your body a variety of movements. Physical Endurance: Most skateboarders don’t just skate for a few minutes and stop - many find it so enjoyable that they skate for hours a day, getting their physical endurance levels up. Teaches Precision: To land a trick, many motions need to align perfectly, so when you fail, you try again, and again, and again. But each time, you make adjustments. You place your feet differently on the board, you change your timing, you adjust your speed, you try and land differently. Until you have the motions and timing down to a precise science, you keep trying! Improves Coordination: Skateboarding involves a lot of coordination between your eyes, legs, feet and arms. The more you skate, the better you’ll get at this. Precision and coordination are used throughout your life, whether you skate or not. When you improve these traits, you better your ability to do all sorts of different things from driving to climbing to multi-tasking. Calorie Burning: Depending on the intensity of the skate, the average

person will burn between 150-500 calories per hour. Ideal crossover sport for other board sports: including surfing, snowboarding, or wake-boarding. If the waves are flat, the snow is melting, or the water is too cold, a person can help keep their skills sharp and fitness levels up by simply riding a skateboard. Teaches consequences, practice, and patience: skateboarding provides a perfect opportunity for a young person to take calculated risks in a controlled environment, with very real and immediate consequences if manoeuvres are not executed properly. Similar to martial arts, skateboarding skills and fundamentals must be learned and mastered over time with practice and patience, (unlike the instant gratification provided by television and video games). You learn to fall: Prevention of future injuries is one of the most beneficial things that skateboarding has to offer in terms of health. When you skate, you learn how to avoid falling (if possible), and you also learn how to fall correctly. Skateboarders naturally get better at knowing where to place their feet and their hands as they progress with their skating. This is a valuable tool to have in life because it will reduce the chance of freak accidents. You’ll naturally be more able to recover from slips, trips, and stumbles and avoid falling on your face. Stress Relief: Any physical activity is considered to be good for relieving stress. Skateboarding can help you take your mind off things. Alternatively, it can also help you think clearly about things. Skateboarding seems to bring things into perspective and allows you to feel as though you’re more in control of other aspects of your life. Overall Health: As with all forms of physical exercise, water skiing can reduce or eliminate your risk for many health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity. Racquetball can also reduce your risk for coronary heart disease by reducing your triglyceride levels and increasing your “good” cholesterol.

Thornlie High graduate stalks the stage in tiger play

“Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo” as a play about life and death, in and around war. “It’s comedy-based, but written as a dramatic play,” he said. “When you get the level of performance right, the comedy shines through without making fun of the show itself. After looking at the script, I fell in love with the language of the play and how playwright Rajiv Joseph uses regular sentences in creative ways.” “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo” will play at 8pm on May 8th, 9th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd, with 2pm matinees on May 10th and 17th. Tickets are $20 for adults, and $15 for concession. A high tea will follows the May 17th performance, and will cost an additional $5. To book, call 0415 777 173 or go to Playlovers is located at Hackett Hall, Draper Street (off Underwood Avenue), in Floreat.

Thornlie Senior High School graduate Cameron Leese is taking to the stage this May in a Pulitzer Prize-nominated play that featured Robin Williams on Broadway. Written by Rajiv Joseph and directed by Andre Victor at Playlovers Theatre, “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo” is a comic drama about the lives of two US marines and an Iraqi translator who encounter a quick-witted tiger on the streets of war-torn Baghdad. As it witnesses the puzzling absurdities of war, the tiger (once played by Robin Williams on Broadway) attempts to find meaning, forgiveness, and redemption among the city’s ruins. The play was nominated for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and also received Drama League, Drama Desk and Tony Award nominations. Leese plays Tom, one of the US marines. “At first appearance, he seems cocky and sure of himself, but quickly becomes fuelled by desperation because of the situation he finds himself in,” he said. “Maintaining an authentic accent is always a challenge, as will be finding the right level of desperation and intensity of the character.” Acting since 2008, Leese has worked mainly in the UK as an extra in feature films and television, with small roles in short and independent films. Since returning to Perth, he has performed with the Old Mill, Playlovers and Melville Theatres, Graduate Dramatic Society, and Irish Theatre Players in “Subscription To Love”, “The Merry-Go-Round in the Sea”, “It’s All Greek To Me”, “Relative Values”, “The Big Casino”, “Under The Bright Sun”, and “Boeing Boeing”. Leese has received awards and nominations for Best Cameo, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Lead Actor at the annual Milly Awards and Plover Awards. He has also appeared in the short films “First Date Worst Date” (screened on ABC2), and “Bye Bye, Lulu”. “The play appealed because it was an opportunity to portray a character unlike any of the other roles I’ve played so far,” Leese said. “After a number of comedic roles, I wanted to take on the challenge of a dramatic piece and disappear into the character.” Director Andre Victor, a former Roleystone Theatre performer, describes

Roleystone Community Chemist Health Advice Corner – rheumatoid arthritis Rheumatoid Arthritis is a hereditary auto-immune disease that results in sore, swollen, and at times extremely painful joints. It is a chronic progressive disease. Signs and symptoms include warm, swollen and painful joints, generally affecting the same joints on both sides, reduced or loss of joint motion, continual or persistent tiredness, rheumatoid nodules under the skin, joint stiffness which can last up to an hour after long periods of inactivity, muscle weakness, and joint deformity. Symptoms vary in severity. Within a typical joint, bones are covered with cartilage and the joint is held together with ligaments and a fluid-filled capsule encased in a synovial membrane. With disease progression, the synovial membrane becomes thickened and swollen, inflammatory chemicals produced by the body result in cartilage erosion, and pitting of the bone surface occurs. Diagnosis is made using various blood tests, indicative of inflammatory processes occurring in the body and the presence of antibodies such as Rheumatoid factor (RF). Principles of management include maintaining quality of life through adequate pain management, joint mobility and preventing or limiting destruction of joint components. Lifestyle treatments include

maintaining a healthy weight (to reduce stress on joints), minimising joint pressure through good posture, using heat packs / warm baths to relieve joint stiffness and cold packs to reduce joint inflammation, regular exercise to maintain joint mobility and strengthen muscles where possible (exercise in warm water reduces the risk of injury), rest or splint joint where necessary, no smoking, and a healthy diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids. There are many medicinal options used to treat rheumatoid arthritis depending on the severity of the symptoms and the advancement of the condition. Many are very successful and enable individuals to live pain free lives. Non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs are often the mainstay of treatment because they reverse the actions of many of the pro-inflammatory chemicals produced by the body. They reduce joint pain, swelling and stiffness. However, long-term side effects such as nausea, vomiting, stomach irritation or ulceration can limit their use. They are often prescribed with medicines to protect the stomach. Pain relievers such as Panadol can be taken regularly – 2 doses, 4 times a day. Stronger pain relievers can be used but can cause problems including dependence. Finally, fish oils reduce joint pain and stiffness but need to be taken for 2-3 months consistently before symptoms improve. A dose of 9000mg to 1200mg is also required. Remember to always ask your Pharmacist for help and advice when medicines are prescribed or purchased over the counter.

Nestled in the rolling hills of Pickering Brook, Core Cider House is renowned throughout the region for its delicious apple and pear ciders. Despite that, I thought I would visit the local cider house and try another speciality: breakfast. Core Cider House is open for breakfast from 9-5pm on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and public holidays. Only a short drive from Roleystone, the familyowned business is set on 40 acres of apple orchard. When I arrived last Thursday morning, the rain was falling and a beautiful autumn mist hung softly in the air. Greeted with a warm smile and the comforting aroma of fresh coffee, I found a lovely table overlooking the pristine apple orchard. The orchard boasts a long and fruitful history, dating back to 1939 when Giovanni Battista Della Franca planted the first apple trees. Since then, the land has remained in the family and is now managed by Giovanni’s grandson, John Della Franca, who created the Core brand after experimenting with cider in 2005. This week celebrates the restaurant’s 4th Birthday. Core Cider House use free-range eggs, their own orchard fruits, local vegetables, and free-range or organic meat from Sebastian Butchers in Kalamunda. Created by Chefs Duane and Ben, the breakfast menu features a rustic take on all the classics that will leave your mouth watering and stomach rumbling. I highly recommend the Croque Madame. The local ham, gruyere cheese, mustard béchamel sauce and poached egg with ciabatta is simply delicious. I loved the gruyere cheese and mustard béchamel sauce because it tied all the components together superbly and complemented a perfectly poached egg. The Core Big Brekky Roll is the perfect choice if you’re really hungry. With grilled bacon, fried egg, chicken sausage, potato hash brown, and a special roast tomato and bean dip in a whole stone-baked ciabatta roll, you’ll be licking your lips in satisfaction. On top of a sumptuous meal, the service is prompt and the waiting time is short. After a delightful breakfast I had the opportunity to participate in a free, guided walk around the Core Cider apple orchard and surrounds. I learned about the farming and production methods used to create the famous Core Apple Cider, the history of the orchard, the challenges faced by produce farmers in a competitive market, and I was even lucky enough to try a fresh apple picked straight from the tree! The free orchard walks start at 10am every Thursday and Friday during the apple harvest month of April. After the walk, you can head back to the restaurant and enjoy a coffee and cake combo for just $10. On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May, Core Cider House will be one of 19 venues open for the 18th Bickley Harvest Festival. From 9am they will treat you to a delicious breakfast overlooking the autumn colours of the orchard. There will be free tours, pony rides for the kids from 10-1pm ($5), live music from 1-4pm, face painting, a paella station downstairs, the Chef’s best cakes and coffee, and of course, cider samples and wine tasting. Make sure you book early for a restaurant table on the deck. The Core Cider House setting is unlike any other, characterised by natural beauty, expansive space, and luscious green hills. For me, the rain only succeeded in accentuating the raw beauty of the orchard and restaurant. With delicious food, impeccable service, a breathtaking view, mellow music, and a tranquil atmosphere, where else would you rather be? Core Cider House is located at 35 Merrivale Road, Pickering Brook.

to come into place in April

As of April 2015, drivers on Western Australian roads will not be able to use normal rope to secure their loads on the back of their vehicles or trailers. This rule will include instances such as taking loads of rubbish to the tip, or bringing bales of hay home on the back of utes. New road compliance and enforcement regulations will require drivers to use approved webbing, tiedowns, or rope which has been certified and endorsed by Australian standards. The changes to the road traffic act were originally meant to come into effect in March of last year, but will now apply from April 27th 2015. The new laws will bring WA into line with many of the eastern states and should make insurance for trucks cheaper. The Main Roads and the WA Road Transport Association have been travelling around regional WA to explain the changes, which include increased monitoring of load restraint, mass, and dimension. Ian King, Chief Executive of the WA Road Transport Association, said that one of the biggest changes that regular road users would have to get used to was the outlawing of regular rope. “Having the old piece of rope that you go and buy at the local hardware store, those days have gone,” he said. “It’s proper, securing webbing and it just makes it so easy, you pull it, you tighten it and you know it’s there. Gone are the days where you can tie off a piece of rope and 100 metres down the road it’s a loose

load, so therefore it improves the safety aspect of it.” However, the main changes to road regulation surround the monitoring of the chain of responsibility. Mr King said it was a reminder to get processes and audits in place so when the new laws come into effect, responsibility could be traced in the event that someone was found to be doing the wrong thing. “A classic example is if a driver gets pulled over and charged. Ultimately, the owner of that business can also get charged under the chain of responsibility,” he said. “If you’ve got your training in place and they do it, well you have your protections in place as well, so it is a chain of responsibility. They are trying to find that weak link and do something about it.” While enforcement officers will be at the ready come April 27th, Main Roads enforcement manager Larry Taya said their focus would be on educating road users, not fining them. “Education is the main priority,” he said. “We will conduct our business as usual, but we will make sure that people are more aware what this whole legislation is all about.” There’s been a strong reaction by the farming community to the new regulations. Tony Seabrook, President for the WA branch of the Pastoralists and Graziers Association, said that the new rules, which place more liability on all levels of the transport chain, are unfair for farmers. He said that while the April 27th deadline will most likely stick, he’s not happy about the increased red tape for primary producers. “It just completely flies in the face of both the State and Federal Government, which have promised to cut red tape. They’ve dropped this one on us,” he said. “The real issue here is not just the red tape, it’s the cost that goes with it.

Artist Annette Wheeler has taken out the Overall Winner Award in the City of Gosnells’ 2015 Community Art Exhibition and Awards, for the second year running.

This year, 237 works were submitted for the exhibition by more than 160 artists. The record number of submissions by exceptionally talented artists made judging the overall winners a real challenge this year.

An intimate relationship with the Kimberley wilderness is the backdrop for the stunning upcoming exhibition at the Zig Zag Gallery. ‘Kalamunda to the Kimberley’ is by prolific Broome artist Suzy French and officially opened on Saturday 11 April at 6:30pm. Raised in the Kalamunda hills amongst the red gums and granite boulders, Suzy moved to the Kimberley as a young nurse to work throughout the region and has called the Kimberley her home for over 20 years. Having lived in the remote Fitzroy Crossing and Derby for many years, Suzy now resides in Broome where she works as an Art Lecturer at the Kimberley Training Institute. Suzy has also opened the Broome School of Art, sharing her passion with others whilst continuing to paint and develop her skills. Shire President Sue Bilich said, “The Shire is delighted to showcase Suzy’s art in her childhood home town, where her family have lived for over fifty years.” ‘Kalamunda to the Kimberley’ introduces Suzy’s beautiful and often ethereal work to a wider audience, giving others the chance to experience her intimate love of the ancient Kimberley landscape.” Suzy French said, “I have travelled the Kimberley extensively by air, land and sea, and my work is a testimony to the fortunate life I have lived in this magnificent country.” “As I travel back home to be with my family as often as possible, I continue to have a strong connection with the Kalamunda hills. I am honoured to be holding my first exhibition at the Zig Zag Gallery.” “Kalamunda to the Kimberley” continues until Sunday 3 May 2015. The Zig Zag Gallery is located at 50 Railway Road in Kalamunda. For more information contact the Zig Zag Cultural Centre on 9257 9998 email or visit Ref: Published 9 April. 2015.

VOLUNTEER FIRE AND RESCUE SERVICE STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS Every year the Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service championships showcase the skill, speed and agility of our fire-fighting volunteers in a spirited sporting environment. The Championships are the pinnacle of the Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service brigade competition and encourage healthy rivalry among our volunteer

fire-fighters. The Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service State Championships provide an opportunity to strengthen existing friendships and form new bonds with brigade members throughout Western Australia. On Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th April, Roleystone Fire Brigade

competed in the B Grade competition of the Annual State Championships held in North Fremantle. Roleystone lost by just one point to South Hedland in the final event and came a very respectable second in the B Grade competition. Ryan Maughan won the B Grade champion fire-fighter.
