Editorial

YOUR Region. YOUR Magazine. YOUR Valley Reporter. Fiona Newland – EDITOR/PUBLISHER Everyone these days seems to be trying to do a million things all at once in smaller amount of time, so it’s not surprising to hear that many are crying out for the daylight saving weather, when the nights will go on and on. It’s not that far away, so don’t despair! As the seasons change, so do our community sporting activities. Registrations have already been held, so by the time this magazine gets into your letterboxes, most kids will have started their summer sports. Now that the warmer weather is well on the way, please remember to slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, slap on a hat, and of course drink lots of water. This month’s issue is proud to have the undefeated Roleystone Netball team, which has won its inaugural Grand Final in the junior 7 division, on the front cover. Congratulations girls - all the effort you put in has definitely paid off! Page 6 features a couple of photographs of something that Roleystoners don’t normally see in their backyard, so check

them out! The Rock Inne Tavern has recently shown a bit of an initiative and introduced a free courtesy bus service to its patrons and guests. With the Christmas festivities just around the corner, this is a fantastic idea. Now there are no excuses not to enjoy the odd drink or two at our local establishment. Remember, bookings are essential! The state government has acknowledged and thanked our seniors for their ongoing commitment and contribution to communities and families through “Senior Week”. The RoleystoneKarragullen Community Bank® Branch will be hosting a morning tea at the Roleystone Karragullen Seniors Club, on Wednesday 9 November from 10:00am to noon. All are welcome. It’s not everyday someone within our community receives recognition for their long and commendable service. However, thanks to the recommendations from the Roleystone Schools Parents and Citizen’s

Association Inc. Terri Murray has recently been awarded a certificate of appreciation. Turn to page 10 to find out more about it. Congratulations Terri! The Valley Reporter wishes to welcome some new advertisers to its pages, including Heather Quinlan Freelance Writer/Editor, Aura Hairdressing, Carry On Fishing and Camping World, Roleystone Lunchbar and Takeaways, Lino’s Mobile Mechanical Services and Pet Assist 332 Home Vet Services. Show your support to them by shopping smart and shopping local. Lastly, The Valley Reporter was informed by a local resident about some photographs of Roleystone on the Curtin University archives. Check out the photographs on page 14, it’s definitely a time to reminisce about the good old days, so enjoy!

The VALLEY Reporter considers its “Inbox Letters to the Editor” section to be a very important public forum. We make every effort to publish all letters, with those from persons in our readership area taking precedence. All letters to the editor must contain the writers full name, home address and daytime telephone number so the editor may contact the writer if there is a question or concern.

the need to ensure Roleystone is free from flammable materials, please contact the Armadale Council and lodge your protest. A concerned resident of Mackie Road. (Name and Address supplied) Like most residents of Roleystone, I travel up and down Brookton Highway up to what seems like 100 times in a week. With the fluctuating speeds of 90kmph down to 60kmph, I take advantage of my car’s cruise control to make sure I am just under the speed limit. Recently, whilst traveling down to Kelmscott on a Saturday evening, I had two vehicles right up the back bumper literally tailgating me. One of the drivers even insisted on turning on his high beam headlights, flashing them madly at me and leaving them on as he proceeded closer. At separate points, these two vehicles then decided to overtake me, on a stretch of road that had DOUBLE LINES. It wasn’t as though I was doing 40kmph in a 60kmph zone! What could have been so urgent that they have to get from A to B in 60 seconds? Slowing down is the single most effective and immediate way to improve road safety. If we all slowed down, our chances of crashing, being killed or seriously injured on the road would dramatically be decreased. It’s that simple! With the Christmas festivities soon upon us, I hope everyone will please slow down and enjoy the ride. Name and Address supplied.

Pamphlet Deliverers Littering in Roleystone I wish to draw your attention to a problem that has managed to prevail, despite the Armadale Council’s swift actions upon it after my complaint in August. I presume that other residents of Roleystone have had a pamphlet delivery agency throwing wrapped up copies of advertising material onto their properties from a vehicle. The practice, which is both unsightly and hazardous, has been carried out by this agency or individual for the past months and is in direct contravention of anti-littering. Other pamphlet deliverers use our letter boxes to distribute their material, which is a perfectly acceptable practice that doesn’t count as littering, and doesn’t create bushfire hazards. The name of the deliverer is unknown, but the advertised businesses in the “drop” include Getaway Outdoors, Super Amart, The Good Guys, Target, Bunnings, Oztrail, Mitchell’s Homemakers Catalogue Perth, Lowes, FlooringXtra and Crazy Clark’s. The Ranger has interviewed the printers and asked for the deliverer to deposit the items into letter boxes instead of just throwing them onto properties. They were also advised that for each complaint a fine of $100 could be made. The printer stated that they were not aware of the method of distribution and that they would ask the deliverers to change their ways. It has become apparent that the delivery people in Roleystone have chosen to ignore the Ranger’s and printer’s requests to make the necessary changes, as the practice is still continuing.

testimoniAl October 2011 To whom it may concern, I first listed my property for sale with another real estate agent in early 2010 who offered a low priced sales commission. It is said that that if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys - and that is exactly what I got. Little communication, seemingly little interest in actually getting the property sold, and after having the property on the market for four months, I ended up exactly where I had started. Listing my house for sale with Maggie Burke Real Estate was a completely different experience. Certainly not the cheapest agent to list with, but there is another saying - you get what you pay for, and in this case it was a high level of professionalism. The first stage in the sales process was to work out how to enhance the presentation of the property. I believe that the work that was put in at this stage was critical to achieving the end result. Throughout the sales process I was kept up to date continually, and home opens were held consistently. Being a small agency with a limited number of homes for sale meant that the level of service provided throughout the sales process was much higher than that which you would get from a larger agency with a larger volume of listings. Maggie and her team displayed a level of enthusiasm and tenacity that you don’t see with most other agents.

After dealing with many Real Estate Agents during my professional career, I would be pleased to recommend Maggie Burke Real Estate to any prospective home seller.

A week of fun and play begins at the City of Armadale on Monday 24 October as we celebrate Children’s Week 2011. This year’s theme of “Nature Play” will have the little ones enjoying story telling, games and activities in the beautiful local surrounds of Memorial Park and Blackburn Oval. Through the week children from Challis Primary, Neerigen Brook Primary and Westfield Park Primary School will also take part in tree planting across various local sites.

The City will also host a range of free activities across the libraries for all local families from Monday 24 to Thursday 27 October. Mayor Linton Reynolds is a strong supporter of Children’s Week activities and says Children’s Week is an opportunity for the community to participate in a range of activities that encourage children to participant, learn and grow together. “The libraries across Armadale will be offering some wonderful free events to celebrate Children’s Week.” “As a grandfather I can see the importance play, socialisation and encouragement has on the early development of children.

Applications can now be submitted for funding from the Australian Government for tools, new activities and more local workspaces under the men’s sheds program Senator for Western Australia Glenn Sterle, said today. “Up to $10,000 in federal support is available to men’s sheds in our region – and I encourage them to apply under the Government’s latest funding round, which continues until the 28th of October,” Senator Sterle said. There now are more than 700 men’s sheds in Australia, with more than 55,000 members. The sheds are facilitated locally by a number of organisations. They provide tools and space primarily for men to work together on meaningful projects. The program is proudly funded by the Australian Government because it helps encourage preventative health care among men who work in the sheds alongside their friends. The sheds offer social connection and opportunities for men to work together on positive activities. They can also provide a

way to overcome the tendency of men not to speak about their wellbeing to others. “I encourage men’s sheds, or those wishing to start one up, to apply for up to $10,000 in funding under this unique Australian program,” Senator Sterle said. “Our local sheds can apply for up to $4,000 for tools and equipment such as power and hand tools, wood or metal lathes, work benches and safety equipment. “Sheds can also apply for up to $6,000 to improve existing buildings or make improvements like better disability access, insurance and connection to utilities such as power, water, and communications. “Or they can apply for up to $5,000 to help improve their local fundraising through events like sausage sizzles. This may cover costs of venues for public meetings, barbeques, cold storage, print flyers or other promotional items.” Application forms are available for the three types of funding from the Australian Men’s Sheds Association website at: http:// www.mensshed.org.

A nationwide petition to get bowls back on the ABC has been supported by Canning MHR Don Randall. Lawn bowls is one of the largest participation sports in Australia with around 800,000 people taking part annually. “After 30 years of having bowls on the ABC, the broadcaster has decided to dump its programming of lawn bowls,” Mr Randall said. “The petition even has the support of Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Barrie Lester and under-25 world champion Sam Shanahan.” Mr Randall said bowls was a favourite pastime for many people in his electorate and he would like to see the Coalition fund the construction of new club rooms at the Pinjarra Bowling and Recreation Club if in Government following the next election. “The ABC has a Charter in the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Act 1983 that

Service at its Best

states it should broadcast programs that contribute to a sense of national identity, inform and entertain, and further requires it to provide a balance between wide appeal and specialised broadcasting programs,” he said. “I don’t’ understand why bowls was axed when both participation and viewership numbers are strong.” Mr Randall said the petition would give people a chance to have their voices heard. “Bowling clubs are an important part of Australian communities, and they are an important part of the Canning community. Particularly in regional areas,” he said. Mr Randall said he would write to the bowling clubs in his electorate to provide them with a copy of the petition ready for signing. Copies of the petition can also be downloaded from www.bowlsaustralia. com.au.

don adds his support to the every australian counts campaign

Recently the Federal Member for Canning, Don Randall MHR, joined many of his colleagues in supporting the Every Australian Counts NEW agrademechanicalservices.com.au campaign, which is calling WEBSITE for the implementation of a National Disability Insurance Scheme. Following the release of the Productivity Commission’s Draft Report on Disability Care and Support, it has become clear that the existing structure in place to support those with a disability is insufficient and is in desperate need of an overhaul. “This is one sector where reform simply cannot wait – there are many thousands of Australians living with a disability who require Comprehensive Vehicle Maintenance ongoing assistance from our Federal Government and ✓ Maximise Fuel Efficiency ✓ Maximise Safety ❍ ❍ to date we have not been ✓ Maintain Existing Warranties successful in implementing ✓ Minimise Breakdowns ❍ ❍ a system that is adequate and efficient,” Mr Randall said. MECHANICAL REPAIRS, BRAKES, STEERING, SHOCKS, EXHAUST, TYRES & WHEEL ALIGNMENTS “The core recommendation of the Productivity Commission’s Report on Motor Vehicle Disability Care and Support Industry Board is the introduction of an Repairers & insurance scheme that will Business Nos: Lifetime Warranty Tyres ensure Australians with a MR1776 & MRB2417 disability, their carers and families will be sufficiently cared for - this is well overdue and I welcome the 11 Wygonda Rd, Roleystone (United Service Station) support that such a scheme has attracted.

Marasco, who cares for her daughter who suffers from a number of severe disabilities. While I have always been of the opinion that we needed to be doing much more for our disabled Australians, Mrs Marasco’s experience has highlighted the reality of what families and carers also require in terms of support and assistance. “Mrs Masaco’s family have endured significant challenges in the 25 years she and her husband have been caring for their daughter and have all too often found accessing funding and respite problematic. I know of several other similar stories in the community and this is one issue that can no longer be ignored,” Mr Randall said. As a former teacher who spent several years working with children with disabilities as well as participating in the Politician Adoption Scheme*, Mr Randall said he has gained a greater understanding of the needs of those who require such assistance. “It is not just the immediate funding and hands-on support that is important to the families of those with a disability – parents and family members require peace of mind that when the time comes that they are no longer able to support their loved one, there will be an adequate, functioning system in place that they have confidence in,” Mr Randall said. While it was encouraging to see the Federal Government appearing keen to implement the NDIS, Mr Randall was concerned that like many necessary reforms, the Gillard Labor Government could place the scheme on the backburner. *The Politician Adoption Scheme is an initiative of the Developmental Disability Council of WA which supports politicians to represent the rights & needs of people with disabilities within their electorate by providing an on-going personal insight into a family’s life.

On Tuesday 20th September, 2 buses full of excited Year 5, 6 and 7 students from Roleystone Primary School and Roleystone District High School headed to the Burswood Theatre. Their destination, an annual event of the WAGSMS Concert Series, was about to begin and the children from Roleystone were 2 of the superior acts to appear in the program for the nights performance. After a nervous rehearsal and trip back to school, the Burswood Theatre was once again filled with eager performers in the evening. The

Year 5 Choir entertained the first half of the show with 3 energised numbers, looking resplendent in their black and white costumes, with silver and black top hats! After a long and patient wait, the Year 6 and 7 Choir stole the show with the final act of the evening. Their beautiful voices thrilled the audience and gave everyone a show to remember for their journey home. Choir Director Mrs Karen West is very proud of all her students and grateful to staff members and parents for all of their support. Photographs courtesy of Mr Blaker.


Roleystone Residents Receive $64,000 in Bushfire Relief but they have been able to get back on their feet, thanks to the support of people right across Australia”. Bendigo and Adelaide Bank WA State Manager David Boromeo said “Bendigo Bank is dedicated to supporting communities to prosper and committed to improving the lives of Australians in times of need. It’s been really tough for the communities in the Roleystone and Kelmscott region, and many still need support and funding to get back on their feet. We hope the donation to the Salvation Army will ease the pressure for many people who may still be coming to terms with loss of property and livelihood, and I’d like to thank everyone who donated for digging deep to give what they could,” he said. The Salvation Army will provide gift vouchers for local hardware stores to those still suffering hardship so that they can purchase materials to rebuild their properties. Vouchers are redeemable at either Roleystone Hardware or at Colli’s in Kelmscott. Donations to the Roleystone and Kelmscott Bushfire Appeal can still be made at the Bendigo Bank branch or online at www.bendigobank.com.au/foundation. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Application forms are also available from the Roleystone-Karragullen Community Bank® Branch.

For 26 years, the state government has acknowledged and thanked seniors for their ongoing commitment and contribution to communities and families through ‘Seniors Week’, which first commenced in 1985. The Roleystone-Karragullen Community Bank® Branch will be hosting a morning tea at the Roleystone Karragullen Seniors Club, 46 Jarrah Rd Roleystone on Wednesday 9 November 10-12noon. The theme for this years Awards is “Setting the Trend”, acknowledging the role our seniors have played in leading the way as role models for younger generations to follow as well as inspiring others with their ideas, innovation and dedication.

The Salvation Army received $64,000 to go toward the Roleystone and Kelmscott Bushfire Appeal, which assists residents in Western Australia’s Roleystone and Kelmscott region to recover from this year’s fires. Severe bushfires caused extensive damage in Roleystone and the surrounding districts in January, with many of those bushfire-affected communities still trying to rebuild or restore their properties to their former state. Roleystone and Karragullen Community Bank® Branch Chairman, Roy Hamilton, said the funds would enable the Salvation Army to provide assistance to those still suffering hardship. “It’s been a long road to recovery for our local people, but the $64,000 raised for the Salvation Army to support fire-stricken communities just goes to show what people can achieve when they work together,” Mr Hamilton said. “Thanks must go to Ed and Leone Donnes, who are victims themselves, but helped to formulate the voucher system. There are so many communities in our state that have been faced with similar challenges, such as bushfires and floods,

Come and relax and re-energise as Nicole and Janet take you on a journey with the beautiful sounds of the crystal singing bowls and other sacred instruments. Here you will receive your weekly dose of vibrations to keep your energy buzzing for the rest of the week! The cost is only $20 per session, or $100 for 6 sessions (yes, you get one for FREE) if you pay upfront. The Therapeutic Art Group is much more about expressing yourself than it is about painting.

There will be an opportunity for those who are interested to continue again in January. Why not come along to our Open Day, and try your hand at throwing a bowl on the Potter’s wheel, or doing some intuitive painting in the garden. We invite you to be mesmerised and immersed in the healing and soothing tones of the crystal bowl as you enjoy a cuppa and a friendly chat. There will be an opportunity for class registration on the day. For more information, please call Janet on 0488 705 555 or Nicole on 0419 285 500.

After a number of years spent discussing and stirring up their creative juices, Janet Bushby BA(Art) Dip (Couns) and Nicole Lloyd B(Mus) are finally bringing their unique creative skills together to create a “Centre of Being” that’s practically right at your doorstep! As soon as you step out of your busy stressful lives and into the nurturing space they provide, you will find yourself being transformed back to your true centre of being, your true self. Janet and Nicole both want to share with others the magic of using creative tools, which anyone can use, as a portal to remembering their natural way of being, the way they believe we were born to live. After all, we are “Human Beings” not “Human Doings”. The inspired sessions that will be held at the “Centre of Being” all incorporate art, sound and play to bring people back into the present moment as they are nurtured by the co-creative processes that are provided for them. These sessions, which are held in Roleystone’s beautiful surroundings, tap into the vibrant energy that emanates from Janet and Nicole working (or rather, playing) together, and will no doubt inspire, empower and revitalise your beings. We would both love to meet you at our OPENING DAY from 2:00pm to 5:00pm on Sunday 30th October at 91 Peet Road in Roleystone, where you can enjoy a taste of what we will be offering on a weekly basis at the Centre of Being. The Opening Day will feature sound healing sessions, therapeutic art sessions, painting, mosaics, pottery, healthy snacks, cuppas galore, unconditional love and acceptance, cosy warm fires in winter, listening hearts, bubbling joyful energy, fun, laughter and connection.

I hate bookwork, and because of that I have had several bookkeepers in the past. I have heard the promises of, “Don’t worry, I’ll do the work and worry for you”. Until I met Susan from ‘Yes U Can 4 Business Solutions,’ those promises were only wishful thinking. Now I can send all my paperwork to Susan, confident that it will be all sorted and sorted very well without any additional stress to me. It’s great that I can concentrate on doing the work I love and leave the business solutions to Susan. Jamie Thomas-Hairrods for Hair, Roleystone. Susan helped me to get my office and my bookwork systemised and organised. We also worked on growing my business. I am now busier than ever. My business is still growing and my desired outcome is now well within reach. Thanks to Susan for her guidance, support and encouragement. I would recommend Susan to anyone in small business, whether it is for growth or for a more organised way of doing things. I would also recommend Susan for her integrity and her professionalism. Paul Arnold-FHI Bathrooms, Kalamunda. For the past few years Susan has been our mentor, MYOB tutor and bookkeeper for the family business. We have found Susan to be an excellent teacher who is trustworthy, reliable, extremely patient, thorough, and with an impeccable attention to detail.

You are invited to “The Art of Playing” art exhibition by Stephanie Boyle, being held at Genesis in the Hills from Saturday 8th October to Saturday 6th November. Stephanie, who has been indulging in her passion for painting since 1992, said “I can’t think of a better way to spend the day”. After starting out painting simple watercolours at her local recreation centre, Stephanie eventually studied Art and Design at the West Coast College of TAFE. Even to this day, she continues to learn at every opportunity by attending workshops to develop and improve her artistic career. Stephanie and her husband moved to Roleystone from the Northern suburb of Duncraig three years ago, primarily in order to have more land for an art studio. It must have been quite a tree change for them, especially Stephanie’s

husband, who was born and bred in Scarborough. Stephanie views her relatively new “country” residence with great affection, saying she feels very home amongst the beautiful rolling hills of Roleystone. Stephanie’s paintings have a recurring Australiana country look to them, most likely inspired by her childhood spent on a farm in the tiny wheatbelt town of Dudinin. In her own words, Stephanie says, “I really believe the freedom I had as a child to roam without restrictions has helped my artistic vision”. On a final note, Stephanie would like to take a moment to give special thanks to Ita and Rivka from Genesis in the Hills for providing the great food on her opening night and giving her this opportunity to exhibit her paintings. Stephanie intends to continue painting for as long as possible, and the Valley Reporter looks forward to hearing of her future successes.

Rivka from Genesis in the Hills has used some initiative to set up a ‘Community Creative’ Shop on the grounds of their popular restaurant. Initial plans have the opening hours set at 11:00am to 3:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays, but with the warmer weather and popular demand, there’s a good chance it could end up opening more hours. The overwhelming number of local artist exhibitions got Rivka thinking, which eventually led to the creation of the community shop. Rivka has taken the demand on board and wants the word out there to artists and other crafty people in the local and surrounding areas that if they are interested to supply their wares to the ‘Community Creative’ Shop for sale, they are very welcome to let her know. The shop, which has an array of products

including hemp, organic cosmetics, picture frames, metalwork, soaps and creams, clay, patchwork and gift cards all on display has been so far received with much gratitude by the Organic Society, along with local painters and artists. The Community Creative Shop definitely has a quirky feel to it, and there is bound to be something within for everyone to enjoy. Why not grab a cuppa and a cake on a Saturday or Sunday at Genesis in the Hills, then take a leisurely stroll over to the Community Creative Shop and pick up an unique early Christmas present for that special someone. Any artists who want to display their wares can contact Rivka on 9397 7799 to discuss further terms and conditions.

The oval was also an important mustering point for the media and emergency services during our bushfire emergency # earlier this year.

Term Four is upon us already, and before we know it we will be farewelling Roleystone Primary School and looking ahead to the opening of the new Roleystone Community College in 2012. During this busy time, it is also important to consider the future of the Roleystone Primary School site, in order to ensure that it benefits our community as widely as possible into the future. Following the closure of the Roleystone Primary School, the Department of Education has determined that the site is surplus to their requirements and is looking to have the land redeveloped. A considerable amount of work has gone into ensuring that the site be used for Seniors’ Accommodation, in order to address the needs of our valued ageing population who wish to retire in Roleystone. At the same time, the Primary School site, which is becoming widely known as the Robin Road Green, is a well utilised and centrally located venue. Its natural amphitheatre is currently being used for community markets and smaller concerts, as well as by junior sporting groups. The oval is one of the few smaller public open spaces in Roleystone that is centrally located, yet away from creeks, set back from busy roads and not frequented by larger sporting groups. This makes it an ideal location for family recreational activities, in particular those with young children. The treed perimeter has been enjoyed by generations of Roleystone school children who made


The Friends of the Robin Road Green are seeking a ‘win/win’ instead of an ‘either/ or’ solution to the future of this important site by lobbying to preserve the western treed perimeter, together with a reduced section of the oval, for community use. Roleybushcare have identified the environmental importance of the site and are willing to assume care of the bush area, including partial revegetation of the understory. The remaining majority

portion of the site could house at least 40 Seniors’ accommodation units, addressing the future needs of this important demographic. With enough community support, this equitable compromise is possible. Please take a few minutes to complete and return the survey provided, which will then be submitted to the City of Armadale and state government as part of the rezoning process for the site.

Week 10 saw our squad of 51 State Country Week representatives test their skill, resilience and ability against quality opposition in the sports of Netball, AFL, Volleyball and Soccer. Our coaches Mr Thatcher, Mrs Gray, Mrs Hodge, Mr Mills, Miss Curtis, Mr Evans and teams Coordinator Mr Holliday did an excellent job of preparing the teams. Our Team Captains badges were handed out at an official presentation on Monday 19th of September – AFL (Brendan Mazengarb, Jade Evans) Volleyball (Tom Shale), Netball (Abbey Jones, Sophie Boughton), Soccer (Laughlan Dwyer, Will Carrigan) – Congratulations leaders! Overall State Country Week produced some excellent team contributions across all four representative sports. It was extremely rewarding for our squad with our younger students receiving a real insight into ‘Competition’ on a larger scale which augers well for the years ahead. The weather provided some challenges, however the resiliency demonstrated by our group and their coaches was exceptional. I look forward to commenting further and providing all the results in next month’s Valley Reporter. Peter Thatcher, Principal Roleystone District High School.

In this, the final year of Roleystone Primary School, we have been looking at ways of While Stocks Last marking, remembering, commemorating and celebrating the school. The P&C was approached by Lyndal (a parent at the school) who suggested putting together a recipe book of recipes supplied by families of the school and the wider community. The P&C were delighted to support the idea, and have worked over the last 6 months with Lyndal to produce this wonderful book. Carolyn Bathgate also collaborated on the photography of the book, giving it a very professional look. The result is this wonderful, colourful recipe book which the P&C are selling for just $15. It is available at both schools as well as at a range of venues in Roleystone.

Roleystone Bowls News from the Greens

The Roleystone Cup, which is a mixed team event along the lines of the Hopman Cup, was held recently and produced an exciting finale. Eileen Green and Ken Brown headed one pool of the draw and were up against Marcia Kitson and Wally O’Brien in the final. Wally and Marcia took out the mixed pairs, while Eileen was victorious in the Ladies’ singles. That left the men to battle it out for the cup and it went down to the last end with Wally just managing to edge out Ken for a welldeserved victory. The match was enjoyed by an enthusiastic gallery of spectators and the success of the event was a tribute to Malcolm Clements, who organised the day. In other competition news, the Ladies’ Drawn Pairs was won by Margaret Munn and Pauline Wally and Marcia show their Smith, with Eileen Green and Alison Brown winning style watched on by the winners of the Plate. runners-up Ken Brown and It was heartening to have several newcomers Eileen Green. attend the “Have A Go” Day, and the club was able to attract some new members as a result.

Resource Sector To Drive Future Property Growth

It sounds like a given ‘Resource Sector To Drive Future Growth’ – and it seems as though it is, HOW LUCKY ARE WE !! A common theme with ‘Real Estate Secrets Exposed’ is commentary on the real estate market’s supply and demand linked with property prices/ growth. During the past 12 months we have seen an above average supply of property to the market and a below average demand - which has resulted in low growth over this period. Looking ahead, QBE LMI (QBE’s Lenders Mortgage Insurance business which has been operating for 45 years) has recently stated that ‘Perth property prices could rise by as much as 20 per cent within the next three years due to a growing deficiency in household dwelling supply forcing property prices significantly higher’. We are already seeing an increase in the number of buyers in Roleystone from the recourse sector and as the level of investment in mining increases overall in our state, income and population growth will be positively driven creating future positive demand.

The Broadway musical version of Little Women will have it’s WA premiere at Roleystone Theatre this November and December. The musical follows the story of the well known semi-autobiographical novel, by Louisa May Alcott, of the same name. The story centres on the character of Jo March and her struggle to find artistic fulfillment, family harmony and love amidst the American Civil War. It is a lovely musical that is both nostalgic and romantic, harking back to times when family was everything and people made their own entertainment, making it perfect for the end of year. The songs are beautiful, lyrical and range from light-hearted fun right through to heart-breaking pathos. Director Paul Treasure, who has led various productions of “Nine”, “The Sound of Music”, “Assassins” and many more at Roleystone Theatre, has worked with the very talented musical director Tim How to put together a very strong cast. Kimberley Harris (who we saw as Eliza Doolittle in last year’s My Fair Lady), stars as Jo March, with Emma Davis as Meg March, Cassie Skinner as Beth March, LizaMari Scwindt as Amy March, Lindsay McNab as Marmee, Bree Hartley as Aunt March, Alan O’Neil as Professor Baer and Owen Measday as Laurie Laurence. The performance dates are the 25th, 26th and 30th of November, as well as the 2nd, 3rd, 7th, 9th and

Why I Love My Job Assisting Pets For the last ten years I have enjoyed the concept of being a mobile vet who comes to people’s houses to visit pets. It is so wonderful getting to know new clients who are already very grateful for my services before I even arrive at their house, or examine their pet. It’s great having such a fabulous working environment before I even start! The veterinary services that I offer for clients at home are non emergency procedures and treatments, which means they can usually be scheduled for a mutually convenient time. Vaccinating animals at home is very simple and allows a clinical examination of the pet in their own surroundings, a quick injection and just a little bit of paperwork while

the victim goes off to play or sleep in a corner. Simple treatments for arthritis and skin allergies can also bring much relief to the pet and their owners, especially when it is difficult to get a large dog into a car to seek treatment. Providing compassionate euthanasia services at home is a very rewarding aspect of my daily work. I value the trust that is given to me to perform this service of a peaceful, dignified and private transition for clients’ pets. I really cherish this difficult task - it is a very meaningful process and I am relieved each time to know that a traumatic part of the pet/owner’s life together has been overcome just because I was able to offer this service at home. Thank you to all my lovely clients who have helped me to love my job. If we haven’t met yet, and you’d like to arrange a home visit for your pet, please call Dr Judith Congrene on 0433 2137 28.

– your local community calendar


There is only one local agency respected by its peers as revolutionising the marketing of Roleystone property. That raises the bar with new records and achievements. That has been chosen, above all other agencies as Roleystone’s No1 selling agent since 2001. An agency that supports their local community with undivided interest, sponsorship and publicity. An agent that over the last 6 months – while most analysts consider that the market has slowed, continued revolutionising marketing and maintained a strong property turnover. A contemporary agency, in touch with an evolving industry that continues to move forward with new levels of client services and marketing initiatives that generates exceptional results above client and industry expectations.
