SARAH HARRIS QUE SERA

OUR COVER: Once left for dead after a vicious assault, David Mitchell is now helping educate young people about the consequences of alcoholfuelled violence. Story: 12-13. Picture: Marco DeLuca

Just a bit too long in the sweet tooth MERICA awoke last week to the news that the makers of the iconic Twinkie snack bar were going out of business. It coincided, by strange chance, with the third anniversary of the demise of a uniquely Australian product. After 62 years of continuous production, the confectionery giant Nestle announced, in late November 2009, it was a wrap for the Polly Waffle, with a spokeswoman declaring “no one buys it any more”. For those of us who identified keenly with these nubbly old bars with their marshmallow centres, the extinction was sad. As shelves were cleared to make way for slicker, more contemporary confectionery, I ruminated gloomily about use-by dates. It didn’t help to discover the media studies class I’d been asked to address that week was labouring under a serious misnomer about their special guest. The students’ disappointment was acute when they realised I was not the erstwhile blonde, totally telegenic Sarah Harris of Channel 9 reporter fame. Returning somewhat crestfallen to the office, I observed morosely to colleagues it was as if I were the Polly Waffle incarnate. In an attempt to cheer me, two of them set off on a hazardous road trip to secure the last Polly Waffles in captivity. They returned triumphant with three bars found under a dusty counter in a shop in Urana in the Riverina. Now, after three years of them sitting in the cabinet with heirloom china, it’s time to let go. So I’ve posted one to Julia, one to Tony and the third on eBay under “rare, iconic Polly Waffle”, with proceeds to go to the Cancer Council. Admittedly, it’s now two years after its bestbefore date, but isn’t this just the golden age of Polly Waffle?

INBRIEF Stars to shine for carols in park Carols in Queens Park is back for another year of singing, fun and festivities. John Bowles, the Melbourne Ukulele Kollective, the Moonee Valley Community Choir, and Essendon Choral Society will be among singers and acts to perform. The festivities start at 7pm, with free childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s craft activities from 5pm. Picnics are encouraged. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

$1m for environmental initiatives Landcare and environmental groups, schools and community groups have been encouraged to lodge applications for $1million in community grants to support a range of environmental partnership initiatives. The funding announcement follows the recent launch of the state governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landmark Environmental Partnerships plan. The plan focuses on building strong partnerships between government, business, community groups and individuals to play a more active role in protecting and enhancing the environment. Metropolitan MP Andrew Elsbury said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that local community groups, schools and environmental organisations take up this opportunity to get the funding they need to make a positive impact on the local environment.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Details: parkweb.vic.gov.au/get-involved/healthyparks-healthy-people-grants.

Downstream, with a paddle BY EUGENE BENSON MEMBERS of the Essendon Canoe Club are enduring intense training to take on the mighty Murray River in the VicSuper Murray Marathon next month. Essendonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Karenne Michaelides, Larry and Portia Robb, and Avondale Heights resident Phil Gibbs are part of an Essendon Canoe Club relay team that will compete in the five-day, 404-kilometre marathon from Yarrawonga to Swan Hill in a double kayak. The Murray Marathon is a fund-raising event for the YMCA and all money raised is spent in the Murray River region to address disadvantage in communities. Mrs Michaelides said they hoped to have about 10 paddlers in the Essendon Canoe Club

relay team. Two team members would paddle in a double kayak for a couple of hours at a time and then change over at checkpoints along the river. A member of Essendon Canoe Club for about 13 years, Mrs Michaelides said the Murray Marathon challenge was great inspiration to get fitter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been paddling four times a week and aiming for 50km a week,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m from the country originally and I lived along the Murray in Albury-Wodonga and Mildura. I always loved the river but never paddled it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really looking forward to getting to know it better and hopefully by not falling in too many times.â&#x20AC;? Mr Gibbs started paddling along the Maribyrnong River as a child with his dad in a

Canadian canoe. While it will be his first Murray Marathon, he does cross-country ski racing, has taken part in the Around the Bay cycle six times and recently completed his first running marathon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a long-distance mentality â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I get motivated when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a goal and I prefer to exercise outdoors where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re free.â&#x20AC;? Essendonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Larry Robb, who forms part of the team with daughter Portia, said he looked forward to exploring the Murray. He was well prepared, having taken up paddling when playing canoe polo about eight years ago. Registrations for the marathon close December 12. For more details, go to murraymarathon.ymca.org.au

Music events take centre stage Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s live music scene for young people has been given a boost with $2.4million allocated to 80 organisations to help co-ordinate a range of supervised, drug, alcohol and smoke free music events as part of the FReeZA program.

$10,000 in grants for youth leaders Youth Foundations Victoria is giving up to $10,000 in grants to local young people to help them make a difference in Moonee Valley Applicants can apply for a grant of up to $2500 for a youth-led project in the areas of community building, community welfare, leadership, training and mentoring, environment, health, educational or cultural and arts. Applications are due tomorrow. For more information, contact Leanne Watt at youth@mvcc.vic.gov.au

Preps to miss out on ‘vital’ health checks BY EUGENE BENSON MANY of the youngest pupils at Moonee Valley primary schools will miss out on vital health checks this year due to a lack of funding directed to the Primary School Nursing Program. Up to 10 local primary schools have yet to be visited by nurses and will not be by year’s end. The program is designed to provide all Victorian children with the opportunity to have a health assessment to link children, families and school communities to services that can provide information, advice and promote health and well-being. The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development nurses, that have assessed every prep student in Victoria since 1997, often discover physical or mental health issues with children that may have an impact on there learning ability. This year will be the first since 1997 that the program will not visit all schools in the Essendon area. Up to 18 primary schools and 1200 prep-aged pupils across Melbourne’s western region will miss out on the health checks. Nicole Dimarco, deputy principal of Strathmore North Primary, one of the schools to miss out on health checks, said it was told it would miss out because it rated highly on the Student Funding Index, which helps accesses the social welfare needs of school pupils. ‘‘Because of our high SFI rating we are on the bottom of the list of who they will see and my understanding is that is unlikely to change next year,’’ she said. Mrs Dimarco said parents had been informed and were disappointed. ‘‘The visits are very valuable so we are disappointed and there is a level of disappointment in the community as well. ‘‘It’s a shame we are missing that important health check time.’’ Essendon Primary School Council member and parent Georgia Reid said the department told teachers that in the absence of the nurse program they needed to be more alert and on the lookout for

potential issues with preps. ‘‘That is over and above teacher responsibility — they are not health care professionals. ‘‘Ninety-nine per cent of pupils might pass a check with flying colours, but it’s that 1 or 2 per cent that if something isn’t found it could really cause an impact.’’ Essendon MP Justin Madden said the failure to provide adequate funding to the program was ‘‘outrageous’’ and ‘‘borders on scandalous”. “The purpose of this program is to provide early identification of students who may have health issues including speech, hearing, and even the likes of epilepsy, autism spectrum disorder, behavioural and speech problems. ‘‘These are conditions that are best treated by early preventative intervention. “Students in Essendon will this year miss out on the most successful preventative health program in our state’s history. It’s incomprehensible as to why the Baillieu Government would fail to provide adequate funds for this important child health program.’’ Schools missing out on the health program in Moonee Valley include Moonee Ponds West Primary School, Moonee Ponds Central Primary School, Ascot Vale Primary School, Essendon Primary School, Strathmore Primary School, Strathmore North Primary School, Aberfeldie Primary School, Essendon North Primary School, Lowther Hall Anglican Grammar School and St Therese’s Primary School. A spokesman for Education Minister Martin Dixon had not replied by the time the Weekly went to press.

Wanted: A likeness of a man police believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.

Burglar assaults woman POLICE are appealing for public help to find the offender in a brazen sexual assault and aggravated burglary in Essendon last Friday week. Police understand a 26-year-old woman was in the rear garden of her residence in Richardson Street about 5.45am on November 16 just before the assault. The woman then entered her home for a short time and was returning to the garden when she was confronted by a man in the doorway of her bedroom. He sexually assaulted the woman before she managed to convince him to leave. The offender is believed to be Southern European in appearance with pale olive skin, aged between 25 and 30, 182 centimetres tall with a medium build and hazel eyes. He was unshaven and wearing a black hoodie jumper and jeans.

Due to the nature of the assault, Detective Sergeant Troy Papworth said the police sexual offences team was taking the matter very seriously. ‘‘It was quite brazen and detectives are fairly concerned in relation to this incident. It’s a burglary and home invasion with a sexual assault with that. ‘‘We think the offender was able to gain access via the rear unlocked door when the victim walked back inside from the garden. ‘‘He was unknown to the victim.’’ Police have released an image of a man who they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries. Anyone with information on the incident or on the man of interest is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. — Eugene Benson

Already he has influenced the government to change messages on myki after an international student topped up her card online only to be fined $180 the next day, unaware it takes 24 hours to process payments. Her fine was waived. He also got VicRoads to finally help a resident who for two years unsuccessfully sought help to remove vegetation from the Calder Freeway growing into her home. Two years after the Niddrie shopping centre fire, Ben has worked with the landlord and building authorities to finally allow the owner of the $2 shop to rebuild his business.

Working hard: Niddrie MP isn’t resting on his laurels.

Wildlife officers were concerned about the Essendon resident who took the possums in his roof for a oneway picnic to the country (Lore, October 30). We’re told relocated possums die in stressful circumstances. Now we do not encourage lawbreakers. The law requires us to learn to live with them so prevention is the best course of action. Measures include not feeding them and removing food scraps in your yard. Put plastic or metal collars around tree trunks and cut back overhanging branches. Attach bird control plastic spikes to fences and beams, or build floppy fences of 80cm-high chicken wire, bury the bottom 20cm and support the remainder on vertical lengths of flexible, high-tensile fencing wire. Bend the wire to curve the upper section outwards so when possums attempt to climb the fence, the wire bends over and then spring back.

Car break-ins on the increase BY EUGENE BENSON MOONEE Valley police are continuing to report an escalated level of theft from motor vehicles. The September Moonee Valley ‘My Place’ crime statistics showed theft from motor vehicles jumped 29.3 per cent from the 2010-11 rate. Sergeant Tim Bell said the rate continued to be at an unacceptable high. On the weekend of November 10-11, there were an extraordinary 34 reports of break-ins of vehicles, with the majority taking place in Essendon. Sergeant Bell said the crime was spread across Moonee Valley with Essendon, Moonee Ponds and Strathmore the main problem areas. He said often nothing was even taken from cars, but motorists were left with a frustrating repair bill to

fix damaged locks and smashed windows that are below a cost worth using insurance for. ‘‘Most offending happens overnight between 9pm and 7am, in residential streets. ‘‘It has also occurred at a number of secured car parks, in apartment complexes. ‘‘Often when these spates happen a resident sees a car or something not quite right but doesn’t think to jot down any details. ‘‘Obviously we are busy, but we will always try to respond to every report as promptly as we can.’’ ‘‘We would urge residents, if they see something suspicious, by no means put themselves in harm’s way but jot down a registration or some details and pass it on to police.’’ Sergeant Bell said it was important that residents locked their cars and didn’t leave valuable items in them.

Councils get $24m solar incentive A $24 MILLION initiative to encourage councils to install solar hot water systems in community facilities was launched at Queens Park in Moonee Ponds last week. Parliamentary secretary for climate change and energy efficiency Mark Dreyfus and Maribyrnong MP Bill Shorten made the joint announcement. The $24 million under the ‘local government energy efficiency program’ will be allocated to councils that install low-pollution, clean energy solar and heat pump hot water systems. Mr Shorten said extra support would be provided to councils in low socioeconomic or otherwise disadvantaged areas. Moonee Valley mayor Narelle Sharpe said the council would be submitting a funding application as part of this program to help install solar hot water systems at its works depot, which would save $500 a year in electricity bills. Cr Sharpe said that since 2007, the council had reduced its overall energy consumption by 30 per cent, which represented a cost saving of $440,000

Men made at home BY EUGENE BENSON FLEMINGTON Neighbourhood Renewal is holding a free Men’s Shed ‘come and try’ session next month to gauge resident interest in establishing a permanent Men’s Shed in the suburb. The Men’s Shed program involves men coming together in a fully equipped shed to work on projects including repair jobs, personal projects, craft and carpentry ideas, as well as one-off projects. Shed users have the opportunity to share time together, network, make social connections and hopefully feel a sense of accomplishment from making things. Flemington residents from all walks of life are invited to take part in various woodwork activities. Neighbourhood Renewal is a partnership between, state and local government as well as local business and organisations that work to improve the liveability of Flemington. Neighbourhood Renewal promotes health and well-being and aims to increase pride and involvement in the community.

Keeping busy: Bob Lakin at work in the Moonee Ponds Men’s Shed. Picture: Michael Copp Program co-ordinator Nino Piscitelli said the Men’s Shed program was open to all residents. He hoped residents from the Flemington estate, in particular, would get involved. A barbecue lunch will be provided at the come and try day on Saturday, December 8.

INSIDESTORY After being left for dead in a Moonee Ponds street, David Mitchell has joined the push to teach young people step back and think about the catastrophic consequences of violence. By MELISSA CUNNINGHAM

The good fight T was a mild summer night in 2008 when Gavin and Denise Mitchell were told their son wouldn’t make it through the night. The piercing sound of the phone ringing roused them from their sleep. Each ring, more urgent, more panicked. David Mitchell, then 19, was in an ambulance being rushed to the Royal Melbourne Hospital. What had begun as a night out with friends, would spiral into a year-long nightmare for the promising footballer and his family. Less than a kilometre from their Moonee Ponds home, at a nightclub then known as One Bar, David was king hit from behind after he had attempted to break up a fight between his friends and a group of strangers. As he lay lifeless on the ground, his attacker kicked him in the faceand stomped on his head another three times. His friends dragged his body from the middle of the road the attacker fled down Puckle Street. Doctors would later tell his family his head injuries were consistent with those of a highspeed car accident victim. ‘‘When we arrived at the hospital we were told Dave wasn’t going to make it,’’ Gavin Mitchell says. ‘‘We were told to gather the family. Then there were two or three days where Dave was in a life-and-death situation. After we knew he wasn’t going to die it became, well, what were we going to get back?’’ According to Australian Institute of Health and Welfare research published in 2008, more than 3450 people are brain-damaged as a result of assaults every year. Researchers estimate that 47 per cent of all those who commit violent crimes and 43 per cent of victims of these crimes are under the influence of drugs or alcohol prior to the event. Men under the age of 34 make up the majority of hospital admissions for alcohol-caused assaults. The Mitchell family refused to give up hope. David’s parents and four brothers spent endless days and nights in a vigil beside his bed. When he finally did wake, he didn’t recognise them. He didn’t even know his own name. ‘‘Gradually, day by day, he improved ever so slightly and we just never gave up hope,’’ says Gavin. ‘‘We couldn’t.’’ David spent 12 days in a coma in intensive care, 39 days in post traumatic amnesia and the next nine months of his life in rehabilitation, learning to walk and speak again. He couldn’t walk unaided for months. Now 24, he only got to see what happened in those fateful moments of being attacked during a County Court case in 2009. ‘‘I only know how many strikes, how many stomps it was because I had to sit through the court proceedings watching the CCTV footage,’’ he says. ‘‘All I kept thinking was how can someone have that going through their head.

‘We were told to gather the family. Then there were two or three days where Dave was in a life-and-death situation. After we knew he wasn’t going to die, it became, well, what were we going to get back?’ — Gavin Mitchell on a lifeless body, to stomp on it, continue to flatten, to destroy, to kill . . . I don’t see how it is human to do that.’’ David’s attacker, then 23, had been thrown out of the nightclub earlier. Prior to the attack, he had been involved in a drinking competition with a friend and consumed a bottle of Southern Comfort whiskey and then vodkas at a St Kilda bar. He had walked up to David’s group of friends, claiming he’d been hit with a bottle. David, acting as a peacemaker, intervened. ‘‘I said, ‘Mate it wasn’t any of us. Let’s go upstairs, have a drink and forget it. We shook hands. I don’t remember what happened next.’’ In August 2009, the attacker was sentenced to six years in jail. Denise Mitchell says there were no winners in the ordeal and watching the footage of her son being senselessly beaten was gut-wrenching. ‘‘For me, it shows how quickly a situation can change,’’ she says. ‘‘That Dave was shaking this fellow’s hand and then when he turned he hit him to the ground. It was just horrific. In those minutes that followed this young boy has ruined his own life, his parents’ lives and his grandparents’ lives. ‘‘Your life can change in that moment and there are no winners.’’ After the court case ended, it remained a long, emotional and painful road to recovery for David. His love of playing football was shattered after doctors told him he would never play contact sport again. Then he was forced revise much of what he learned during his carpentry apprenticeship. ‘‘It was demoralising,’’ he says. ‘‘I was six months into my apprenticeship, but when I returned to work a year after the assault I

I had to start again and re-learn everything.’’ David says it wasn’t until this year that his anxiety and trauma began to fade. ‘‘I’m only just feeling like me again,’’ he says. ‘‘People thought I was back to my old self, but I wasn’t. For a long time my trust levels with people would go up and down. I didn’t feel as comfortable going out with mates. I didn’t trust strangers straight away. I would spend nights out looking around, trying to read conversations between people and becoming anxious, thinking something was going to happen.’’ Eighteen months ago David was ready to take a stand for the silent victims. He decided to be a voice for the victims whose lives had been stolen or destroyed by the street violence that has ravaged Australia in recent years. A poignant visit to James Macready-Bryan, the victim of an alcohol-fuelled assault in Melbourne in 2006, led him to become an ambassador for Step Back Think. Mr Macready-Bryan was cornered in a deadend alley before being punched in the face and hitting the ground on his 20th birthday. He suffered brain damage and is now unable to move, talk or feed himself, and lives in a highcare residential centre.

To raise awareness of the devastating impact a single punch can have, his father Andrew Macready-Bryan, family and friends formed Step Back Think in 2008. The campaign, funded by the state government, educates young people to step back and think of the consequences of throwing a single punch. It aims to change attitudes towards street violence. ‘‘When I met James I thought that could have been me. I could have been just a heartbeat. I’ve got to do something about this,’’ he says. ‘‘Its not just a CBD issue; it’s everywhere, it’s wherever there is alcohol or wherever there are two opinions in the one place. It could be at your local suburban football club or the nightclub in the city.’’ Every year for the rest of his life, David will visit a specialist who examines his brain and performs a series of tests to examine how his brain is functioning. Earlier this year, after hearing about a recent fight involving people he knew, David posted on Facebook about the dangers of alcohol-fuelled violence. His status update received more than 150 ‘‘likes’’ in 48 hours. ‘‘I don’t see myself as inspirational or anything

like that. I just want to stop this from happening to somebody else,’’ he says. ‘‘If I can reach just a couple of people through the campaign, force them to think before they act, then I’m happy.’’ David says he plans on raising the profile of Step Back Think among football clubs in the west. During the footy season this year, he spent every Sunday mentoring the St Bernards Football Club under-14 players. His message is simple. ‘‘Always look out for your mates,’’ he says. ‘‘Just walk away and be the bigger person.’’ Tough love for boozy youths Keilor Downs Leading Senior Constable Gerard Dickinson worries about ‘‘an unprecedented increase in street violence in the past five years’’. As a youth resource officer in the west, he mentors more than 400 young offenders and victims of assault or road trauma. It prompts him to observe: ‘‘There’s growing acceptance among young people about the use of recreational drugs.’’ ‘‘Youth are also drinking a lot younger. If you have drugs and alcohol in the mix, violence is just a given. ‘‘Its these attitudes of young people who aren’t prepared to think about the consequences of

their actions that need to change.’’ To curb this type of behaviour, police officers in the west have created a series of diversion programs for youth. They are: ■ Preventing Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth (PARTY) — run in conjunction with The Alfred hospital — is a pre-sentencing condition where offenders aged 18 to 25 visit victims of assault and road trauma in the intensive care unit. ■ Ropes, a crime diversion program for youth under 16, teaches those who have been in trouble with the law about the consequences of their actions. It uses heights and rope-scaling to challenge young offenders and instil a sense of discipline and self-worth. ■ Fit2Drive has schools across the west taking part in a safety initiative that aims to raise awareness of the consequences of drink-driving and risk-taking on the roads. Presentations are given by road trauma victims, firefighters and police officers. For more details on these programs, call 9365 3333.

FLEMINGTON resident Dan Gregg is happy playing second fiddle behind the scenes. The freelance producer has been making his way in the entertainment industry since crossing from Adelaide four years ago and studying Film and Television at Swinburne University. ‘‘I’ve always had a passion for movie watching and TV viewing,’’ the 24 year old says passionately. Gregg likens producing to being a facilitator and dubs himself ‘‘the communicator’’. He says the role is about making sure everything happens and runs smoothly. ‘‘For me, that’s just where my strengths are in terms of organising, as opposed to in a creative sense as a writer coming up with the idea.’’ Gregg’s latest gig was as producer on short film Thin Air, which is a finalist in the 12th annual Bondi Short Film Festival in Sydney. The film was directed by Natalie Nalesnyik, a friend of Gregg’s whom he met while studying at Swinburne. It centres on a teen gymnast and her

uncovering a questionable relationship that unfolds between her teammate and her coach. Gregg says the shooting process took five days, with scenes shot late at night at a gymnasium. A real gymnast who had never acted before was cast in the lead role to make it more authentic. ‘‘It was tiring but really fulfilling. We had an amazing cast.’’ Gregg said the film, completed early this year, was entered into several national and international film festivals. He said it was great to finally get some credit. The stirring story was chosen to open last weekend’s festival, where finalists competed for $10,000 and were judged by a panel of highly respected and award-winning members of the Australian film and television industry. ‘‘It was great to see it finally get the recognition I feel it deserves greatly. It’s such a strong story.’’ Gregg says he will continue to work hard and hopefully crack into the competitive television industry.

Petite cafe big on flavour HILARY McNEVIN EATING OUT

BEATRIX Address: 688 Queensberry Street, North Melbourne Contact: 9090 7301 Hours: Wednesday-Monday, 9am-4pm (closed Tuesday) Unlicensed

We Beat, You Eat’ is the mantra on the chalkboard in Beatrix, a small cafe on Queensberry Street in North Melbourne. Just three tables inside with a bench across the front window and two tables on the footpath make up Beatrix. The rest of the space is dedicated to a counter displaying delicious cakes and slices made on the premises. Almost two years old, Beatrix keeps things very simple in terms of the menu, but the commitment to serving quality, local produce is outstanding. Order from the blackboard menu — the room is small enough for you to read it from any angle — to the easy-going staff who readily control an occasional queue that can quickly form in the space. There are two

ciabattas up on one board; we order both. These two enormous sandwiches are served on delicious ciabatta bread from Let’s A Loaf bakery in Caroline Springs. ‘The Queen Margot’ is Warialda Galloway Beef, roasted rare, with caramelised onion, gruyere and mustardy rocket leaves, and it comes in two sizes: large ($15) or small ($13.50). The other is the ‘Meat Free’ with warm ricotta from local cheesemakers That’s Amore, on fresh tomato and pesto ($10/$8.50). The sweets are reminiscent of mum’s cooking. There’s a homemade finish to all of them, such as the caramel slice with dark chocolate and hazelnuts ($5) or the ‘Shagg’, a coconut buttercake with buttercream ($8/slice). We settle for a slice of Trez Leche ($8/slice). Traditionally, a Spanish recipe, this plain cake

Tastefully charming: Beatrix is small in space but big on quality. Picture: Eddie Jim is soaked in three milks — evaporated, condensed and whole milks — topped with cream and fresh raspberries. It’s moist, decadent, sweet, a complete treat. With Allpress coffee — the espresso is slightly bitter but well-rounded with good cream — Beatrix is a great treat in this inner suburb.

Past has presence This extended 1920s California bungalow, in a blue ribbon address, was updated two years ago

ROSS McGRAVIE PROPERTY WRITER ld and new blend harmoniously in this charming 1920s California bungalow in arguably one of Aberfeldie’s finest streets. Sitting pretty on a 618-square-metre garden allotment with silver birch, mature rhododendron and roses in the front yard, the tuckpointed red-brick residence with decorative roof finials has been lovingly maintained and updated over three decades. A picture of elegance behind its columned porch and bay window with leadlight panels, the doublefronted gem was extended 22 years ago and updated in 2010. The covered entry with porthole-style leadlight window at the side is complemented by a leadlightenhanced front door. It opens to a wide foyer, off which are two bedrooms and a renovated bathroom. The carpeted main bedroom features a strapped ceiling with panel, pendant lightfitting, bay window, feature wallpaper and full-height fitted robes with mirror front, also a feature of the second bedroom. The fully tiled bathroom has a contemporary vanity

O

unit, mirrored cabinet, toilet, skylight, and shower over a mini bath with bi-fold glass screen. At the end of the foyer is the timber-panelled dining room resplendent with plate racks, strapped ceiling with ceiling panel, and brick corner fireplace with grand timber mantel and feature brick insert. The room’s double doors open to the front porch. Beyond is the sitting room, carpeted and with picture rails, pendant lightfitting and Federation-era corner fireplace with gum nets feature and overmantel. A door leads into the rear extension, the latter part of which has been designed to accommodate a second storey. To the left is the kitchen, which was updated two years ago with slate-look floor. Highlighted by gleaming granite benchtops, it incorporates Euro stainless-steel appliances (600mm wall oven, four-burner gas cooktop and dishwasher), SLM glass-and-stainless-steel canopy rangehood, tiled splashback, microwave shelf, plate and pot drawers and a pantry beside the double fridge space. A double sink also matches the extra-large double-hung windows. Directly across from the kitchen is the family room with reverse-cycle airconditioner, a wall of storage, polished baltic pine floorboards, leadlight-enhanced windows and TV area with Foxtel connection. Further along is a small study, equipped with overhead cabinets, built-in desk and shelving. It complements the third bedroom, which has a reverse-cycle airconditioner. Given their position,

these rooms would be an ideal set-up for a teenager. Outside finds the Laserlite-covered deck, which descends to the sail-covered entertainment area with extensive paving, landscaped gardens, majestic liquid amber tree, large shed and potential-packed rear yard that will have green thumbs champing at the bit to work their magic. Alternatively, there is a rear rightof-way that provides scope for off-street parking, subject to council approval. Another set of steps lead down to the below-house workshop. Measuring 7 metres x 4 metres, it could be used as a cellar, gym or even a retreat with some cosmetic work. Roller blinds, insect screens, reclaimed leadlight windows and external sunblinds are among the home’s highlights. Its position, too, will have no shortage of admirers, with Aberfeldie and Clarinda parks, Maribyrnong River recreational precinct, sporting fields, shops and schools close at hand.

49 Aberfeldie Street, Aberfeldie Bedrooms: 3 and study Bathrooms: 1.5 Living areas: Lounge, dining, family room, covered deck The rest: Ducted heating, reverse-cycle airconditioners, alarm, period detailing, workshop/cellar, double carport, rear ROW Price: $1 million-$1.1 million Auction: Saturday, December 1 at 3pm Agent: Barry Plant Real Estate, 9373 0000

Our Professional Employment and Situations Vacant columns are reserved for advertisements which carry a SPECIFIC and GENUINE offer of employment. All employment advertisements must state clearly the type of job offered and remuneration offered. (i.e. salary package, retainer plus commission or commission only). "Commission only'' jobs are only accepted in these columns PROVIDED that this is clearly stated in the ad AND the employer is paying Workcover and Superannuation. If not, then these advertisements MUST be placed in an alternate classification such as Self Employment Opportunities. Placing misleading advertisements is an offence against the Competition and Consumer Act and all advertisements are subject to the publisher's approval. For further advice contact the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission on 9290 1800.

TRIPPING

A doff of the hat to Fez’s exotic fare FEZ, MOROCCO Getting there: Fly Melbourne to Fez, via Doha and Casablanca Accommodation: Hotel Batha, Place de l’Istiqlal, Fez, Morocco Details:tripadvisor.com.au

BY REBECCA MILLER ravellers shouldn’t worry about the heat and possible culture shock when considering a trip to Fez, Morocco. I went last year and loved the experience. There’s plenty of things to love about Fez, including the sunny weather, historical buildings, food and drink— traditional tagine followed by mint tea anyone? Whether its a chicken, beef or vegie tagine with cous cous they’re all delicious and filling, while very sweet mint tea is a refreshing finisher. And my accommodation, like many buildings in Morocco, was decorated with mosaics. My hotel — once the British Embassy when Fez was the capital of Morocco — was at the foot of the medina (old city). I’d recommend a tour guide as the medina is like a rabbit warren and not the kind of place you want to get lost in the heat. A guide is also handy for people who don’t speak Arabic, French or Spanish as not everyone

T

speaks English yet, although clearly they’re doing well in the multilingual department! The medina consists of market stalls, businesses, mosques and living quarters. I visited a leather tannery and was given a large sprig of mint to sniff during the tour and thank goodness because the big, leather-soaking pots smelt like sewage but the colours were beautiful, just like the products in their shop. A visit to a pottery where traditional bowls, vases and tagines are made was interesting, just a shame it’s hard to bring the fragile, hand-painted wares home. And stepping inside a traditional pharmacy was intriguing with its various herbs, remedies and natural perfumes displayed in jars.

MOTORING ●

Family friend has a growth spurt Derek Ogden and Ewan Kennedy road test the Subaru Liberty Exiga s the tribe becoming too big for the faithful family sedan? Look no further than the Subaru Liberty Exiga seven-seater wagon. Based on the Liberty platform, the Exiga started life as a six-seater wagon. Now, due to popular demand says the maker Subaru, an extra place has been set for someone in the 2013-model vehicle, which went on sale in July. The seven-seater comes in two models — the Liberty Exiga 2.5i, which includes a DVD, and the top spec Liberty Exiga 2.5i Premium (our test vehicle), which adds leather trim, satellite navigation, reversing camera, Bluetooth compatibility, eight-way electric driver and front passenger seats, and a new 17-inch alloy wheel design and new-look door mirrors. The former is priced from $37,990, the latter costs from $42,490, both plus on-road costs. With a model upgrade midway through 2012, the entry-level Exiga added a reversing camera plus dusk-sensing headlights and steering wheel Bluetooth controls, voice command, audio streaming, USB connectivity and AUX jack.

I

Liberty Exiga 2.5i’s factory-fitted 4.3-inch LCD screen displays audio information and reversing camera images. A saving grace on long, drawn-out journeys is the roof-mounted, fold-down remote-control DVD system with infra-red wireless headphones which can keep even the most tiresome travellers in the two rows of rear seats occupied. With all seven seats occupied, there’s not much space in the back for two people’s luggage, let alone that for more than half a dozen. With the rear two rows of seats folded there’s a reasonably flat surface to take longer and more bulky items. Designers, it seems, didn’t spend much time on the exterior, the Exiga having a boxy, oldfashioned look. The high sides, however, do make for plenty of head room – 40mm better than the Liberty – and good visibility. Expect to get fuel consumption of 8.6 litres per 100 kilometres. Once you go past the dated ‘maxi taxi’ exterior, the Liberty Exiga has much to offer, especially for the larger family, small sports team or groups of friends.
