YOUR Region. YOUR Magazine. YOUR Valley Reporter.

Once again the community has greatly contributed to The Valley Reporter - this month’s magazine is chock full of some very interesting articles. Two local girls have had great success with their entries into the recent Kelmscott Show, read their stories on page 4 and 8. The City of Armadale has included in this issue a media release hot-off-the-press on “Bush Fire Preparedness”. Residents and landowners need to be responsible for their own fire safety so please take the time to have a read, page 9. With many snakes and reptiles unfortunately ending up as road kill as the warmer weather approaches, one lucky resident has been able to capture a magnificent bobtail with a smile on his face. Check out the great photograph on page 12. Thank you for the submissions and keep them coming! November would not be the same without mentioning the great work of a small group of dedicated Roleystone mums and their annual Girls on the Porch event. A staggering $41,000 will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation this year, thanks to Roleystone’s

wonderful generosity. Read the full story and see all the photographs taken from the day on page 16 and 17. Roleystone Community College has managed to do it again! At the annual Smarter than Smoking Young Directors’ Festival, Roleystone Community College and Kingsley Primary School were judged as having produced the best commercials and tied for first place. Photographs from the award night are on page 20 and the winning commercial will be screened at Armadale Grand Cinemas before each movie during December, January and February. Now, a story of a different kind. The Forrestdale Heart and Soul Men’s Shed members have been painstakingly restoring their HMB Endeavour replica to its former glory. The Valley Reporter was kindly invited along to meet some of the group’s members and to capture photographs of the beautiful vessel. All their hard work is about to pay off, with the replica near completion just in time for Christmas. Check out the full story and wonderful photographs on page 23. There are businesses both new and old that we’d like to welcome, so please show

Front Cover: Jacaranda Mimosifolia. Its vivid lilacblue clusters of trumpet shaped blossoms appear in the summer, later falling to the earth carpeting the ground with a mass of colour. Jacarandas are used world wide as a decorative ornamental tree and are recommended for street and park plantings and garden situations where light summer shade is required. Jacaranda mimosifolia is the most widely planted and admired tree of the Jacaranda family, which consists of more than fifty species. A Jacaranda tree creates the perfect summer centerpiece, it erupts in a blaze of brilliant colour when most spring blossom trees are long gone.

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. For The VALLEY Reporter’s “Inbox Letters to the Editor” full list of guidelines go to;

A special thank you to Alf/Hetty for the recent Captain Cook history article - I was delighted and have enjoyed reading it three times. With a name like Seabrook one would think sailing was in the blood, but the only sailing I did was in a dam in Norseman where we kids sailed a canoe made out of corrugated tin. I should add we paddled across in the darkness with our ears peeled for the “hunters” - the local water suppliers, whose job was to maintain and monitor this precious asset. Yes, we were caught and punished! However, I’ve been most interested in James Cook since I was a boy going to school at the local convent in Norseman back in the 1940s and ‘50s. I still have my first book on James Cook, a Whitcombe & Tombs New Zealand copy. Since then I’ve built up a personal library on Cook and his endeavours.

Added interest came when I moved to Wundowie, the home of Wundowie Pig Iron, in 1960. I was there when the foundry won the contract to cast all the anchors for the Endeavour II project. Eventually, as a member of the Wundowie Progress Association, I was able to get one of the “coasting anchors” donated to the WPA. It is now placed outside the community hall’s main entrance. If anyone is interested, it would be worth a visit, not only to see the anchor, but to visit a historic industrial town. It was here also that the Sarich engine was cast and also many bollards for the Sydney Olympic Games. A good time to visit this community is in mid-May when the Iron Festival is held, organised by the WPA. If you go, you can also take in a tour of the foundry. Benjamin Seabrook, Roleystone.

Sandy Johnson has been appointed coach and her dedication and commitment in leading the State Championship team is to be commended.

Kofukan karate Roleystone dojo entered a small, yet diverse, crew in the Yoseikan-Ryu Spring Open Tournament on 4th November. Two of our National competitors, Brooke Williams and Kaitlin Brindley, finished up a spectacular year of karate by taking out first and third placings, respectively, in their gritty kumite (sparring) events. Brooke took home a lovely set of ceremonial swords, whilst Kaitlin won an impressive gold cup (Kaitlin’s Mum, Angela, was so happy that she decided to go home and drink a bubbly or two out of it). Our pee wee competitors were so awesome that it is pretty obvious they will be taking home their own swords and cups one day. The Purser boys, Clayton and Daniel, have no fear whatsoever, Danny and Lucas showed up their opponents with efficient sparring, and Skye was out there for the girls in impressive form. Junior competitors Abby Fouweather, Lochlann Mackay and Bruce Thonell competed admirably in the 10-11-year-old divisions, going up against kumite opponents who were often a LOT bigger than they were (as in, geta-stepladder bigger). Needless to say, the brand new protective equipment purchased with a grant from Telstra’s Kids Fund received a great workout, and certainly saved our crew a bruise or two. And the results were: Brooke Williams - 1st Place Womens Open Kumite, Kaitlin Brindley - 3rd place Girls Open Kumite 15 Years, Danny Brooke & Lucas Henderson - Bronze Participation Medal Novice Boys Kata 8 Years and Under, Skye Mclean Bronze Participation Medal Novice Girls Kata 8 Years and Under, Danny Brooke, Lucas Henderson, Clayton & Daniel Purser - Bronze Participation Medal Novice Boys Kumite 8 Years and Under. Congratulations to all of the crew, and heartfelt thanks to Sensei’s Darren, Brooke (who admirably balanced coaching duties with competing on the day) and Cameron for their coaching efforts, as well as to all of the supporters who cheered on the crew all day. We look forward to seeing a Roleystone presence out on the tournament mats again next year. Karen Fouweather. (top-bottom) Tournament crew and coaches, Brooke on the winner’s podium. Local Roleystone Community College student Sienna Hardie took home a swag of awards from the Children’s Flower Arranging Exhibits at this year’s Kelmscott Show. Winning two first prizes and a second. Sienna was delighted to receive the Evan James Award for the most points in Children’s Flower Arranging 9-11 years age group. Sienna would like to thank the sponsors of the Kelmscott Show and she encourages all Roleystone kids to enter one of the many categories available next year. “It doesn’t matter if you win or not, it’s just really good fun,” she said. Congratulations Sienna!

The City of Armadale is reminding residents to ensure their properties are bushfire ready. Failure to meet the requirements of the Bushfire Notice may result in penalties being issued to homeowners. Owners are encouraged to be proactive on their properties in reducing fire hazards and fuel loadings on properties and ensuring your compliance with the City of Armadale Firebreak Notice prior to 1 December 2012 and throughout the summer months. Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones is urging residents to act responsibly and prepare their properties for the summer season. “Preparing properties for bushfire season is a shared responsibility. We will continue to encourage residents to be prepared and we hope that as summer comes closer residents will do the right thing. “Fire preparedness is a critical aspect in reducing risk and enabling effective fire response. It is the responsibility of each and every landowner and land manager to ensure that their properties meet statutory fire regulations and that they have implemented adequate fire preparedness measures.

A practise evacuation procedure will occur during term 4. The City of Armadale has indicated it hopes to have Call Courtney & Chelsea 0400 206 810 Email: the proposed works along Brooks Road completed & before the start of Term 1 in 2013. Works will include a change in location of the original crossing point, extended footpaths, pram ramps and a roundabout at Caprea Boulevard. The Transperth bus stop located across from Caprea Boulevard will now be relocated to the new bus embayment, which was recently allocated and line marked for the school.

The jarrah comes from a recently-demolished house in Merton Road, previously owned by Colin Hamilton (the former gardener/maintenance man at Roleystone Primary School), so it is quite fitting that the wood has ended up back at the local school. The steel frame work has also been recycled from the old primary school site.

Buckingham Bridge Update Tony Simpson MLA, the Member for Darling Range was very happy to be informed recently that work will soon begin on a permanent replacement for Buckingham Bridge which was destroyed in the Kelmscott Roleystone bushfire. The $7.1 million replacement bridge will be constructed to the south of the temporary culvert. This will allow the construction process to be completed without the need to close the crossing and divert traffic around the construction area. The Bridge will be a single span 25 metre long precast structure with reinforced concrete walls.

It will also enable new approaches from the East and West with better sight lines for motorists. Mr Simpson said “I welcome the delivery of the new Buckingham Bridge after detailed design work. It will complete the major public works following this disastrous fire.” The bridge will be funded by the Western Australian Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements and the Natural Disaster State Contingency fund. Pictured: Minister Troy Buswell and Tony Simpson MLA viewing temporary culvert March 2011.

The Roley Roamers walking group is calling for new roamers. The walking group is part of the Heart Foundation Walking program in partnership with Women’s Health and Wellbeing Services and invites women of any age and at all fitness levels to join the group, share their fitness goals and make new friends. The Heart Foundation recommends adults should aim to include at least 30 minutes of physical activity (such as brisk walking) on most, preferably all, days of the week. Joining a Heart Foundation walking group is an excellent way to reach this goal. “Participating in a regular walking group can help you become healthier through reducing your risk of heart disease and stroke and helping to reduce body fat, blood pressure and cholesterol”, said Emma Groves, Project Officer, Walking and Cycling. “People who enjoy regular physical activity live

Qigong What does it mean? It is certainly not a new dish in your local Chinese restaurant! Qigong means the right effort to produce energy. Qigong is the grandfather of a number of Chinese therapies including Tai Chi, and was first practised more than 5000 years ago. It involves some exercises with some gentle soft movements, hard movements that require more muscular activity preferred by the martial artists, and the “static” meditative type of exercises, but all have one thing in common, that is that they be done with emphasis on the breath and mind focus. Qigong’s ultimate aim like yoga’s is spiritual enlightenment, by mastering your own body, your mind and discovering and knowing our “true self”. On the way to spiritual enlightenment, by practising Qigong regularly, you will achieve your optimum health. Another aspect of Qigong that is rarely discussed is that you’re putting the responsibility for your health maintenance and healing yourself back in your own hands by not relying on others. Master Lim would love to see that Qigong, Yoga, Meditation, and Self Knowledge eventually be taught to all, from primary school upwards in the formal school curriculum. His teaching commitments take him to Bali, India and other countries. Master Lim gives public talks and conducts workshops on these subjects while continuously deepening his knowledge as although he may be a ‘Master’, he considers himself a perpetual student. Master Alex Lim is currently running Qigong and meditation classes in Applecross, North Fremantle, White Gum Valley, Nollarmara and has been running a class in Roleystone since August at the Roleystone Recreation Centre. They are held every Wednesday night from 7.00pm - 8.45pm, cost $20 per session or $70 per month. For more information call the Roleystone Recreation Centre on 9397 6538 or visit

Witty, naughty Avenue Q

With strong themes such as racism, pornography, homosexuality and puppet sex, Roleystone Theatre’s musical production of Avenue Q is definitely aimed at adults and mature teenagers. The production team says the show is great for teenagers because it deals with real life, but parents should use their discretion based on the maturity of their children. Described as “Sesame Street for adults”, the musical focuses on the life of Princeton, who finishes university and moves out into the big wide world. Renting an apartment in Avenue Q, he meets several others all searching for their purpose in life. With songs including The Internet is for Porn, It Sucks To Be Me and I’m Not Wearing Underwear Today, the show won three Tony Awards in 2003 including best musical. It features 11 puppet and three human characters and is performed with the puppeteers visible. “Much of the show’s ironic humour arises from its contrasts with Sesame Street, highlighting the differences between childhood and adulthood,” director Lorna Mackie said. “I am a huge fan of modern musicals and Avenue Q is one of the best of this genre. “The show, while performed in a somewhat simplistic children’s style, actually deals with some extremely complex themes and has a range of subtle layers to convey how the characters deal with these real issues.” Mackie made her directorial debut in 2010 with the musical Reefer Madness and followed it up with the best musical production Finely Award for Funny Business last year. With Avenue Q, the puppetry adds a whole new dimension. “The actors had to undergo several intense puppetry workshops to work on emoting through the puppet, as well as their voices and singing, which are the actors’ normal tools,” Mackie said. Avenue Q plays at 8pm, November 16, 17, 21, 23, 24, 28, 30 and December 1, with a 2pm matinee November 24. All tickets are $20. Book on 9397 5730 or at www. NB: This production is not suitable (top-bottom) Kate Monster, Nicky, for children. Teenagers under 18 Trekkie, Lucy and Princeton get down must be accompanied by an adult. to business in Avenue Q.

Holiday Horse and Pony Camp There are only a few short weeks until the school holidays and that means… Christmas holidays camp time at Halcyon Stables! This camp caters for children aged 6 to 16 years of age, from beginners through to advanced riders and is being held from 19-21 December. It would make an awesome Christmas gift to the horse-mad child in your life. The details: • 3-day residential camp, all meals and drinks provided $400 per child; • 3-day non-residential camp, students arrive 9am and return home each evening at 5pm - $300 per child; • Single day attendance $120 per child per day. Students are welcome to bring their own ponies, or ride one of the stables’. On arrival, students will be assigned to a horse or pony, which becomes their “own” for the duration of the camp and gives them a taste of what horse ownership is really like. With assistance and full supervision, students will be responsible for the care and welfare of their assigned horse or pony for the three days. They will help groom, saddle up and take care of their pony, including feeding, refilling their water and mucking out the pony’s yard or paddock. Students will be placed into groups according to their riding level. Each day, students will ride at least

twice during the day. Students will receive instruction on correct, safe riding and will also enjoy a bush ride through gorgeous Korung National Park. Students will also participate in games and activities through which they will learn more about caring for a horse or pony. Places are limited so for more information or to book, contact Jessie 0419 149 877 or email halcyonstables@ Note: All our staff have Senior First Aid certificates, Working with Children Checks and are fully insured.

Canning MHR Don Randall said that the recent decision by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) to allow orchardists in WA to continue to use the fruit fly chemical control Fenthion is a significant victory for local fruit growers. Facing the devastating possibility of losing the one remaining effective control to combat fruit fly, Mr Randall said it was inspiring to see growers unite to fight for a common cause and preserve the use of Fenthion for at least another 12 months. “While this is a commendable victory for fruit growers, particularly those in the Perth Hills area, we must not forget that APVMA’s decision is an interim measure that by no means guarantees the continued use of Fenthion in future years,” Mr Randall said. “The Hills Orchard Improvement Group was extremely proactive in the fight to preserve the use of Fenthion and the group was led by some dedicated, energetic advocates such as Brett and Bruno Delsimone, Tim and Wilma Byl, Ross Anile, Eric Ghilarducci and many others who can be very proud of

their achievement. “The APVMA’s proposed ban of this effective pest control was a perfect example of unnecessary overregulation and was based on spurious scientific evidence that the Hills Orchard Improvement Group successfully challenged. “I congratulate the Hills Orchard Improvement Group on their outstanding campaign on this issue.” WA orchardists have been granted a temporary reprieve with the introduction of new labelling for Fenthion which will allow the continued use of the product with several new conditions attached. Mr Randall said while this was great news for growers in WA who will be able to accommodate the new spray patterns put forward by APVMA, primary producers in other states weren’t so lucky. “If APVMA and the Labor government thought they had a fight on their hands here in WA, wait until fruit growers in the Eastern states understand the ramifications of this decision on their operations, which is likely to leave many farmers unprotected from the menacing fruit fly,” he said.

2012 Kingsley - Joint Winner L-R: Deanna Smith (West Coast Waves) with Kingsley Primary School students Maxine Littlefair and Marnie Taylor, Roger Hayden (Fremantle Dockers Football Club).

Two local schools have been awarded first place in the annual Smarter than Smoking Young Directors’ Festival – and health is the overall winner. There was a draw for first place, with Kingsley Primary School and Roleystone Community College judged as having produced the best commercials. Students from six schools in the South Metropolitan area produced a 30-second television commercial for the past few months to promote an anti-smoking message for ‘Smarter than Smoking’. Coordinated by the Smarter than Smoking Project and the South Metropolitan Public Health Unit - Armadale, the Festival is an innovative approach to health promotion in the school setting. “This is the second year the competition has been run, and the standard of entries was high,” Heart Foundation Cardiovascular Health Director Trevor Shilton said. “The competition gives students an opportunity to apply lessons about the health risks of smoking in a hands-on, practical way.” “Smoking rates among 12 to 17 year olds in WA are low – less than 5% - but it’s important to keep supplying information about the health risks. “Smoking is very addictive, and children who take on board the messages of our latest campaign, Future In Your Hands, are in a better position to make informed choices.” To assist in bringing the students’ ideas for their television commercials to life, expert mentoring and high quality equipment including cameras, lighting and sound were provided by Murdoch University. Students were extremely excited to produce and star in their own productions. The 2012 Smarter than Smoking Young Directors’ Festival entries were showcased to the local community at Armadale Grand Cinema on 24 October. Former Dockers footballer Roger Hayden

The Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School community recently celebrated student talents at the annual Music Night. The concert was held in the wonderful facilities of the Lumen Christi College Performing Arts Centre and featured students in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The Year 3 and 4 choir opened the show with a rousing rendition of “The Pirates Life” that was full of joyful “yo, ho, ho’s”. The Year 4 students who made up McNamara’s Band were certainly in fine form. The evening also showcased four instrumental students, who received awards for excellence at the recent Catholic Schools Performing Arts Festival. At the festival, the school band also received a shield for being the most outstanding primary school band and they entertained the audience with “Blazing Saddles” and a toe-tapping performance of “I Got Rhythm”. The evening came to wonderful close when the Year 5 and 6 choir presented a medley of songs from around the world. The World of Maths Roadshow gave students from Years 3 to 6 an ideal opportunity to see how maths is applied to some real life situations. More importantly, students were engaged in handson activities that catered for all ability levels and probed their problem-solving skills. There were 17 large, colourful games in each session, with corresponding worksheets for the students. Each activity focused on one of the mathematics strands: number, space, measurement, chance and data and logical thinking and sequencing. The students were excited and intrigued as they solved a variety of problems, discovered number patterns, identified geometric properties and applied mathematics to the

physical world. A trip to the Western Australian Museum History recently gave Year 1 students an insight into what life was like for their grandparents. History is crucial to young children because it is important for their development to recognise the concept of past and present. So Year 1 students and teachers embarked on a museum adventure and uncovered items used in the past like toys, cameras and kitchen utensils. With the help of parents, the group was able to enjoy an education session directed by the museum facilitators about what an olden day school was, how washing was done and how toys were played with. Students discovered how long it took to take a photograph and how strict teachers used to be!

Fresh Pool Water WA

– a healthier swimming alternative Did you know that you can convert your established pool into fresh water? The Enviroswim has smashed the old doctrine that salt or chlorine is the only pool water choice. Consider what swimming in harsh chemicals is really like: sticky skin, red eyes, smelly bathers, chemical fumes, foul taste, plus perishing toys and pool equipment. Some pool owners are not aware that salt water chlorination is sanitised solely by chlorine. Swimming in chemicals should be a thing of the past. The Enviroswim is highly accredited and eliminates most chemicals known to cause serious health issues. It can also kill bacteria in water that chlorine cannot. It is very low maintenance (you will be amazed at how much easier it is to maintain your pool) and the system is not affected by heat or UV sunlight, so you never have to keep adding harmful chemicals after a hot day or rainfall. The Enviroswim is ideal for asthmatics, those with psoriasis, eczema and allergy sufferers. The ES3 reduces electrical

usage, increases efficiency, is ideal for solar-powered filtration systems due to low power demand and you can recycle the backwash and pool water onto your garden, holding tanks or grey water systems without dilution. The ES3 reduces staining and corrosion on pool surfaces, fixtures, glass fencing and landscaping and is a true eco-friendly system. We know there are so many advantages when converting your pool into fresh water, but the best one is this: swimming in FRESH WATER. Consider the health, lifestyle, convenience and financial benefits and ask yourself: ‘who wouldn’t convert their pool into fresh water?’ Check out our website for more information and call Lindsay to book a site inspection 0428 198 973.

Restored to former glory

The Forrestdale Heart and Soul Men’s Shed members have been painstakingly restoring their HMB Endeavour replica to its former glory. A combined effort from all Shed members has helped to rebuild the model of James Cook’s ship since it was donated to them in poor condition in June 2011 from the old Pioneer Village site in Armadale. The group is still trying to gather more information about the birth of this small-scale Endeavour replica - exactly where, why and who made it in the first place. Please contact Terrence Thompson on 9397 2465 or 0414 081 511 if you can assist.

This will be available for patrons who have purchased a Waterslide Pass or available for private hire outside of peak periods.” The Kalamunda Water Park includes: an 8-lane, 50-metre Olympic pool catering for lap swimmers and fun seekers alike, with plenty of water space containing inflatable toys, lap lanes and some free play areas; two children’s pools, one approximately 80cm’s deep and the other 40cm’s deep; and a Splash Pad situated in the Kiddies Play Area designed for toddlers and young children. The facility is also home to two tube slides, the Zig Zag and the Corkscrew.

Julia Dalby in WA premiere of very “very wrong” reindeer comedy

Former Roleystone Theatre performer Julia Dalby reckons there’s a good chance people will be offended this December - she’s in a show with Santa’s reindeer like you’ve never seen them before. Groovy Boots Theatre is presenting the WA premiere of The Eight: Reindeer Monologues at Lazy Susan’s Comedy Den in the lead-up to Christmas. It’s a darkly comic tale of corruption, abuse and deviancy implicating the smallest elf right up to the jolly fat man himself. Written by Jeff Goode, this professional production of his critically-acclaimed work is described as “as all kinds of wrong” and definitely NOT for children. A scandal erupts at the North Pole and each reindeer delivers clever, humorous and confronting monologues, dishing the real dirt on Santa’s perversions, Rudolph’s mental health and why Dancer no longer dances. Dalby plays Vixen and it’s her allegations of sexual harassment that drive the play to its conclusion. “I have the last monologue and it’s funny, coarse and confronting,” she said. “Do we believe Vixen or don’t we? And can the horrifying things she’s saying

possibly be true? “Making her likeable and believable is the main challenge because the audience has to warm to Vixen and I want them to be on her side by the end.” Involved in theatre for the past 11 years, Dalby has performed with the Old Mill, KADS, Blak Yak, Roleystone and Blue Room Theatres, Graduate Dramatic Society and Act 1 Scene 1 in productions such as Jack The Ripper, Secret Bridesmaid’s Business, The Portrait of Dorian Gray and Chicago. The Eight: Reindeer Monologues appealed to Dalby because she enjoys dark and challenging stories. “Monologues are a big challenge and Vixen’s appealed because it’s so funny and black,” she said. The Eight: Reindeer Monologues plays at 8pm, November 28, December 5, 6, 12 and 13 and 7pm, December 2, 9 and 16. Book through TAZ Tix on 9255 3336 or www. NB: this show is strictly an adults-only event. Lazy Susan’s Comedy Den is located upstairs in the Brisbane Hotel, 292 Beaufort Street, Highgate.

Summerfruit Australia chairman Mark Wilkinson, of Maida Vale, Fruit West committee member Bevan Eatts, of Manjimup, and Department of Agriculture and Food officer Alec McCarthy discuss ‘swatting fruit fly’ at the Karragullen Expo.

backyard, the steps are clear: get rid of any excess fruit and don’t let fruit rot on the ground; if you have unwanted or unmanaged trees, remove them; and finally, monitor trees for fruit fly and if there is activity, take action to control the pest. “These measures will reduce breeding sites and prevent adult fruit fly from laying eggs in fruit. Ultimately, they will help protect local fruit supplies.” The display featured demonstrations on ‘how to make your own’ fruit fly trap with horticultural consultant Peter Coppin and options for fruit fly control in backyards. Visitors could also watch the release of sterile male fruit fly, which is currently being trialled in Roleystone as a way to help manage populations. Fruit West project officer Graham McAlpine said staff and committee members present were pleased with the high level of interest from the general public and small landholders in better control of the pest.

The Remembrance Day event was marked with several songs honouring fallen soldiers. There was also an impromptu acoustic jam session which had the small, but mustard keen, audience jumping in their seats. This was sparked off when we were joined by Erhard, founder of the Roleystone-based

“Rolling B. B. Blues Band”, supported by Jim Dick (vocals and guitar); Mel (vocals, harmonica and slide guitar), Tony Street (rhythm guitar) and the amazing maestro Erhard leading on harmonic.

A community approach to controlling the damaging pest, fruit fly, was a key point of discussion at the Karragullen Expo. Visitors to a display run by the Department of Agriculture and Food and industry body Fruit West were told everyone could help ‘swat fruit fly before it makes a mark’. Mediterranean fruit fly is known to infest more than 200 types of fruit and vegetables and costs the Western Australian horticultural industry millions of dollars each year. Department officer Alec McCarthy said fruit fly impacted on many commercial fruit growers in WA, including growers in the Perth Hills area. “Industry is moving towards an ‘area-wide management’ approach to defend crops from fruit fly,” Mr McCarthy said. “While industry is working hard to protect crops, this work can be compromised if fruit fly in nearby areas is not managed. “This means it is up to everyone, not just commercial growers but anyone with a fruit tree or vegetable patch in their backyard, to control fruit fly. “For those with fruit trees in their

Spring has seen the arrival of four new ponies at Rainbow Riding School: Ticket: A 6-year-old, 13 hands high chestnut riding pony mare, Ticket has a lovely gentle personality and is already a favourite with some longtime riders, including Roley Riders Tammy Nairn and young Sonny K., as well as Bianca B. and tiny tot riders like Tegann. Ticket has already been out and about on the Eventing scene, partnered by her trusty ‘trainer’, Shannon Meakins. The team debuted at the Kelmscott Pony Club in-hand series , the Wallangarra Pony Club One Day Event on 14 October and the eventing training day on 11 November, as well as at the Wallistons Hickstead. Paris: A pretty 8-year-old, 13.2 hands high brown riding pony mare. Paris has certainly bonded with Chief Instructor Anita Moor, who put her through her paces at the Wallangarra Pony Club eventing training day on 11 November. The pair took home a sixth place ribbon in the 16 years and over bracket, which required completion of a 65cm jumping round, a dressage test and a challenging cross country course. Anita had an absolute ball, but, like the other ‘senior Wally riders’ who competed, certainly felt it the next day. Look out for Paris (and hopefully, Anita) out and about Eventing in 2013. Dakota: A brand new Mum of a stunning palomino foal, nicknamed Spyder (because of his gangly long legs). Dakota is a ClydesdaleCross-Welsh Cobb Bay who stands at 14 hands high and is 6-years-old. Her boy, Spyder, loves people, especially kids, and has been winning the hearts of all of his visitors. Among Spyder’s fan club are Roleystone Community College students, Jayde and Jack Wind, Abby Fouweather and Ashley Hardisty. His Mum, Dakota, will have many years at Rainbow and it sure looks like she will learn to love jumping and eventing like all the other ponies, but young Spider will only be visiting for a short while, until he is weaned. Eventually, Spyder will grow up to become some lucky child’s beautiful riding pony. Karen Fouweeather. (top-bottom): Spyder with Jack, Jayde, Abby, Shannon & Janae. Spyder charms Ashley.

testimoniAl July 2012 Thank you Maggie, Patrick and Jo, for all your help in the recent sale of our property. You provided us with realistic advice and great support from the very outset. We were extremely impressed with your enthusiasm, energy and professionalism, and felt that we were all working together as a team. You kept us fully informed of all developments and well advised throughout the whole process. We believe that you went over and above what would normally be expected from a real estate agent, and gave us tremendous confidence and support. Selling a house can be a stressful experience, but you made the process so much easier. We are really grateful for everything that you have done and we would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you and your team to others.
