irlie Women’s Clinic opened in Malvern Road after we identified a demand for more GP services for men, women and children. There are a lot of GPs who cannot take on any more patients and find it hard to see even their existing clients. Even with our two branches, services were stretched and our lists were full. It got to a point where we had maxed-out our space, so we were forced to expand. This is an issue facing the entire GP services industry. Through the media and the government, we hear time and again of GP shortages in rural, regional and outer suburban areas, but quite frankly there are many patients in inner Melbourne who ring up for an appointment and are told to wait for days. For new patients, the reality is that many GP clinics will simply not take on new clients. That is happening now in inner Melbourne. Traditional gynaecological health issues are becoming more common and, with shared care at the larger public hospitals also being stretched, women are turning to their GPs for personalised service during their pregnancies or whatever it may be. Mental health issues are becoming increasingly common, especially young women. Certainly in the last 30 years that I have been practising, and as mental health becomes more accepted, more people are presenting with mental health issues. For the modern-day GP, even though we are trained for comprehensive medical care, being more knowledgeable in mental health is a definite need.

There is also greater understanding of technology and the internet. Women and men are coming in with a broader understanding of symptoms and conditions because of easy access to information. It is important to discuss what patients have read because while there is a lot that is right, there are many myths and inaccuracies. Medical knowledge is now very much a two-way street. I would never discourage patients from

researching, and patients feel empowered when they do their research, to a degree. Empowering the patient with knowledge is probably one of the biggest changes in modern medicine. Women’s health has shifted from a reactive to a preventative model. Patients present nowadays looking for ways to improve their wellbeing. Women have a longer life expectancy, so they want to spend those years as healthy as they can.

PROFILE DR FELICIA GLASS, GP WHAT I LOVE ABOUT STONNINGTON: I believe we can make a real difference, even on a very local scale. WHAT I WOULD CHANGE: I would like to see a change and an increased awareness of preventative health measures, empowered patients, and for more men to visit their GPs.

Planning battle has day in court BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@mmpgroup.com.au

THE battle between Stonnington council and Lend Lease about the weight of community objection to planning matters came to a head last week in the Supreme Court. QC Stuart Morris led the council’s argument on day one of the two-day hearing, suggesting the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal ignored more than 350 objections to Lend Lease’s proposed Orrong Road, Armadale development submitted to VCAT last July. More than 85 people crammed into the hearing room for Mr Morris’ opening statements. Mr Morris said that at least 376 submissions, from people who were not able to attend the VCAT hearing last year, were ‘‘simply ignored’’. Mr Morris argued VCAT ‘‘diverged from established practice’’ by overturning the council’s original decision to reject the 12-storey, 466-unit development proposal, and in doing so, breached the Planning and Environment Act, Stonnington’s Planning Scheme and VCAT’s own charter. On day two, QC Christopher Canavan, on behalf of Lend Lease, argued VCAT had taken into account all relevant community concerns and impacts on the area. ‘‘In one way or another all relevant objections were considered by the tribunal,’’ he said. Mr Canavan said a number of the 600-plus objections made to council in 2011 were made from people beyond a one-kilometre radius of the proposed development.

“The number of objections is irrelevant because there was no evidence submitted to the tribunal proving that the 600-plus people did live within the sphere of relevance.’’ Mr Canavan questioned how far the concept of “relevance” extended for objections to planning applications and conceded that if the case was re-heard at VCAT, “it is in the interest of justice”. If it wins the hearing, the City of Stonnington will call for the case to be heard in front of a new VCAT panel. Stonnington mayor Matthew Koce said the council would continue to push for a “positive outcome” and one that “that respects the opinions of our residents”. He also urged the state planning department to make a quick decision on a Planning Scheme Amendment submitted by council earlier this year, which would place stricter planning controls on the 2.5-hectare block. Despite the mayor’s pleas, a spokeswoman for the state government confirmed it would not make any decision on the amendment until the Supreme Court decision is passed down. Justice Karin Emerton is expected to make her ruling in the coming weeks.

ON A MISSION: Cafe manager Victoria McDowell and Declan Jacobs

Pour one for the poor A PHOTOGRAPH of an old man sitting alone with a coffee in a cafe has inspired two Elsternwick friends to bring the Suspended Coffee movement to Melbourne. Declan Jacobs, a social media entrepreneur, and Jett Mahmud, a campaign manager, spotted the social media post about “suspended coffee”, where customers pay in advance for an underprivileged

stranger’s coffee. They launched their Suspended Coffee campaign, which is believed to have started in Italy, on social media and in just three weeks have convinced 34 cafes to jump on board. Mr Jacobs said they were talking to welfare agencies to strengthen the initiative. Find your participating cafe at facebook.com/suspendedcoffeesocietymelbourne.

Report calls for traffic plan MELBOURNE’S congestion issues are likely to get worse before they get better, according to the latest Auditor General’s report. The report on Melbourne’s increasing traffic congestion has criticised the state government for expensive Band-Aid fixes and has called for a statewide traffic management plan. The report, which was tabled at parliament last Wednesday, accused the state government of focussing on increasing road capacity rather than “management alternatives”. The economic cost of Melbourne’s congestion is rising by an estimated $2.6 billion a year with work and school traffic named as the biggest contributors. According to Department of Transport figures, 12.6 million trips are made on Melbourne roads on average every day, 77 per cent of which are by car, with that figure pegged to rise by 41 per cent to 17.8 million by 2036. The morning and the afternoon peak hour period has increased by about 15 minutes since 2000. Stonnington mayor Matthew Koce backed the report, saying it was evidence that traffic congestion was a major issue for inner city municipalities. He called on the state government to reinvest at least part of the $22 million raised from stamp duty charges in the Forest Hill precinct since 2010, into infrastructure for the area. EDDIE MORTON

Medics open longer hours

Best of health but still impatient

BY LISA HIGGINSON lhigginson@mmpgroup.com.au

BY EDDIE MORTON

STONNINGTON residents could have access to more after-hours health services if a pilot project proves successful. Bayside Medicare Local is teaming up with medical clinics to trial longer opening hours to offer more choice and alleviate pressure on local hospitals. After surveying every medical practice across Stonnington, Port Phillip, Bayside, Glen Eira and Kingston, the organisation found 118 practices that agreed more should be done to improve after-hours urgent care. The pilot will see five clinics in St Kilda East, St Kilda South, Bentleigh East, Glen Huntly and Carnegie extend their hours, with some opening on Sundays for the first time. In Stonnington, Inner South Community Health Service’s new GP service in Prahran is also planning after-hours care. Bayside Medicare Local CEO Elizabeth Deveny said the expansion was good for residents. “We have been listening very closely to what local health professionals and residents are saying and are now doing what we can to expand after-hours services and help people know what their options are,” she said. Bayside Medicare Local is also developing a health services guide to what services are open and when. A 24-hour helpline is available for residents to speak to a registered nurse or doctor on 1800 022 222.

GENERAL practitioners in Stonnington say a shortage of local medical services is forcing some patients to wait days for an appointment or attend a different clinic. Despite this, the National Health Performance Authority this month reported that the area including the City of Melbourne, Port Phillip, Bayside, Kingston, Glen Eira and Stonnington had the “most desirable experience nationally” in terms of personal health status in 2010-11.

Dr Felicia Glass, of Airlie Women’s Clinic, said despite having two clinics – the second one opening in Malvern two weeks ago – demand for GP services was high. “We opened our new clinic because we are full at our clinic in High Street, Prahran,’’ she said.

‘‘We often get reports from patients who say they are forced to wait days to be seen at other clinics.’’ There were common reports of patient lists at practices being full and clinics being unable to take new patients, she said. Dr Glass called for government support to boost medical services. The National Health Performance Authority found 91 per cent of adults in the Bayside Medicare Local area rated their health as excellent. It said 79 per cent of people had seen a GP in the past year, and only 11 per cent said they had waited too

long for their medical appointment. Consequently, no areas in Stonnington are on the federal government’s District of Workforce Shortage list for doctor’s services. Royal Australian College of General Practitioners president Dr Liz Marles said the figures did not necessarily reflect the experience of doctors and patients on the ground. “Real measures of GP availability such as time taken to schedule an appointment, ease of recruitment for GP vacancies, and the number of GPs unable to accept new patients must be looked at,’’ Dr Marles said.

DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY: Flo and Derry Stewart at The Gables

THE 60th wedding anniversary of Flo and Derry Stewart was an event to be treasured more than most. The couple, from Berwick, went to Malvern East to mark their diamond milestone at The Gables, which was built by Mr Stewart’s grandparents, Laurence and Lilian Birtchnell, in 1902. Mr Stewart, 88, recalls visiting the 15-room mansion in Finch Street as a boy. He enjoyed its vast garden, which was designed by William Guilfoyle, who had transformed the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne in the 1870s. Mr Stewart’s grandparents lived at The Gables for 25 years. Since then,

the property has been a popular reception centre, serving high tea and hosting more than 100 weddings a year. “My mother had her wedding reception there and so did her sister,” Mr Stewart said. “My mother could remember the main room being illuminated through the leadlights of the billiard room by light from my grandfather’s Straker-Squire sidelights. ‘‘There was, of course, no electricity back then.” ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ��� ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

VOX POP HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO IMMUNISE YOUR CHILD? JESS HUBERMAN, Brighton Extremely important. These people are nutcases. The science is there, you go and do it if you need to. It’s as simple as that.

TOM QUINE, Malvern I think it’s incredibly important. I don’t think there’s any good reason not to. I don’t think there’s any substantial evidence to say that it’s dangerous to do so.

MELANIE CHAN, Richmond I think it’s very important. I think that the more people are immunised, the fewer the people who are going to get sick. There is a lot of misinformation going around about what the risks of immunisation are.

Melbourne. ‘‘In terms of local government pounds, this is an example of best practice being implemented in a way that’s not been done in Melbourne," he said. ‘‘The building needed to be robust, but also sympathetic.’’ The pound is one of 12 Stonnington buildings to be entered into the Victorian architecture awards, which will be announced on Friday, June 21.

A STATE-of-the-art sanctuary for Stonnington’s homeless cats is up for a top design award. The cattery at Stonnington Pound is in the running for the Public Architecture Award in the alterations and additions category at this year’s Australian Institute of Architects’ Victorian Architecture Awards. Designed by Melbourne-based company Architecture Matters, the development was commissioned by Stonnington council in 2011 in response to a growing demand for temporary accommodation for the area’s lost and abandoned cats. Now home to 44 felines, the Glen Iris building was designed to feature individual mechanically ventilated condos for the animals in zoned areas while incorporating elements of environmentally sustainable design. Architecture Matters director Anthony Gionfriddo said the building was the first of its kind in

THE number of children being immunised in Stonnington is consistently above the state average, according to council figures. More than 92 per cent of children between the ages of one and four have been immunised through its free childhood immunisation program in the past year – above the state average of 90 per cent. Stonnington council chief executive Warren Roberts said the immunisation rate across the municipality was on par with previous years. “We actively encourage families to immunise their children from six weeks of age, providing information through the many Stonnington families who use our maternal and child health services and childcare services,” he said. The council also provides free

immunisations to students across 11 Stonnington schools. Mr Roberts said immunisation rates among school children were “extremely high”. “This year’s schedule included for the first time the human papillomavirus vaccination for boys in year 7 and a follow-up vaccination in year 9,” he said. “To date, 95 per cent of candidates have taken up the vaccination.” Meanwhile, Bayside Medicare Local revealed figures from the National Health Performance Authority report showed the catchment – which encompasses Stonnington, Glen Eira, Kingston, Bayside, Port Phillip and part of the City of Melbourne – was the best performing in Melbourne. The data showed 93 per cent of one and two year olds, and 92 per cent of five yea olds were fully immunised between 2001-12.

Fine time for voters

Council budget flags rate rise emorton@mmpgroup.com.au

IMPROVING open space is high on Stonnington council’s list of priorities but residents will pay more in rates and parking fines, according to the draft 2013-14 council budget released last week. Council has predicted a 4.3 per cent rate rise, blaming the increase on garbage and landfill fees, and the carbon price increase. The rise was estimated to rake in $70 million, up from $66 million last financial year. Rates rose 4.2 per cent in 2011-12 and 3.9 per cent in 2012-13. “As a long term Stonnington ratepayer I know no-one likes paying more in rates,” Stonnington mayor Matthew Koce said. “We have tried to keep rate rises as low as possible in the face of the increasing cost of utilities and doing business, including those imposed by the federal and state governments.” The draft budget forecasts revenue traffic and parking fine revenue to

total $17.6 million - a rise of $428,000 on the previous financial year. The council earned more than $7.1 million from parking fines and infringements in the first six months of the 2012-13 financial year. Stonnington council will keep lobbying the state government for a high school at Prahran, improved public transport and roads and “an enhanced role for council in major planning decisions”, according to the draft council plan. Meanwhile, general operating costs are predicted to drop by $2 million, taking into account a federal government superannuation scheme bill of $2 million. Submissions on the Draft Budget and the Council Plan close May 20 and will be heard at a meeting on May 27. The 2013-2014 Draft Budget and the 2013-2017 Draft Plan documents can be viewed at stonnington.vic.gov.au or at council’s service centres or libraries. The final budget and plan will be considered by council for adoption on June 3.

MORE than $595,000 in fines have been issued to Stonnington residents who failed to vote in October’s elections. The Victorian Electoral Commission has issued 8513 infringement notices, each carrying a $70 fine, to people who failed to give a valid explanation for not completing their postal ballot card. The VEC had issued 12,882 Stonnington residents with failure-to-vote notices in January. Stonnington Council said income from the infringements offset the cost of the election. Voter turnout was 56.2 per cent, compared to 65.1 per cent in 2008, giving Stonnington the fourth-lowest turnout in the state behind Yarra, Melbourne and Port Phillip. Stonnington collected $207,022 in failure-tovote fines in 2008.

McIntosh stays on as Kew MP PENNY STEPHENSON/THE AGE

BY DAN MOSS State parliament editor

ANDREW McIntosh will stay on as the MLA for Kew after his resignation from all ministerial portfolios and committee positions last week. Mr McIntosh quit the portfolios after admitting he’d leaked information from the privileges committee to a journalist. He apologised for his actions, saying he thought he was speaking to the journalist off the record. He was the Crime Prevention, Corrections and Gaming Minister, chair of the lower house privileges committee and a member of the dispute resolution and the standing orders committees. He was also the minister responsible for establishing the Independent Broad-based Anti-Corruption Commission.

MULLET NAILS BOGAN ROLE There’s nothing aerodynamic about a mullet, but Dale Woodbridge is determined to keep his while cavorting as Circus Oz’s first – and fabulous – bogan. “I’m a bit of a bogan anyway, so it’s basically me in a mullet being as flamboyant a bogan as I can,” the Kew acrobat says. ‘‘I do a few pirouettes in that mullet.” The 24-year-old joined the internationally famous troupe last year after being spotted in a circus master class. He’s also trained as a dancer and worked for ABC TV. “He’s a p---take on the modern-day football star; he thinks he’s gorgeous, he thinks he can play professional footy, but he’s just a tradie,’’ Woodbridge says. Circus Oz opens its Melbourne winter show, Cranked Up, under the big top at Birrarung Marr on Wednesday, June 19. Bookings: ticketmaster.com.au or call 136 100.

SORRY: Andrew McIntosh It is believed quotes attributed to a Liberal source in a story in The Sunday Age on March 10 about independent Frankston MLA Geoff Shaw, were at the centre of his reasons for resignation. Premier Denis Napthine praised Mr McIntosh for acting honourably in resigning but said it was inappropriate to comment on the reason for his resignation.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ A CONCOURSE, OF COURSE I agree with Matthew Koce that we need a second entrance at the north end of South Yarra station (‘‘PTV agrees to ease squeeze’’, RL, April 17). It would be great to not just have a bridge and ramp to Yarra Street, but a concourse with access through to Chapel Street. Perhaps the council could make it a condition of approval that the next apartment block provide this. Bob Hale / Malvern ■ SHOP FOR SPACE A simple solution to ease congestion at South Yarra station would be to use the shop that opens into the station already (‘‘PTV agrees to ease squeeze’’, RL, April 17). Insert extra barriers and create more space for pedestrians and converted seating. I believe the station originally had an expansive waiting room that is missing now. Brett / via website ■ LEST WE FORGET We are approaching the centenary

of Anzac Day, but there are two other centenaries Australians need to recognise. These relate to the vote against the federal government’s desire to conscript our men for overseas service. Twice the government sought the approval of Australian voters, who twice rejected their proposals. The success of the NO vote was a marvellous moment, and one we need to acknowledge. Yet there appears scarcely a mention of it in our understandings of World War I. On October 28, 2016, we have the centenary of the first referendum on conscripting Australian men to fight abroad. . The government again sought to have the public vote in favour of conscription on December 20, 1917. Australians again said they weren’t in favour of our men being sent abroad to kill and be killed. For us to fully understand, recognise and commemorate the relevance of World War I to Australia, it is important these events are treated with respect. It would be sad

to see Anzac Day eulogised while no recognition is accorded to the date(s) Australia said NO to our men being sent abroad to fight and die. Glen Davis / address supplied

■ HEROES, NOT HORSES The growing interest in Remembrance Day is exciting. The 11th month, 11th day, 11th hour – its importance must never be overlooked. Victoria is in a unique position. The first Tuesday in November 1877 was proclaimed a public holiday for a picnic horse race. A responsible society can no longer accept a gambling, bingedrinking festival for a public holiday. VicHealth’s 10 year survey declared Melbourne Cup Day to be the most anti-social day of the year. The Cup would no doubt continue but the November public holiday must be on Remembrance Day, November 11. In our now multicultural society, let’s celebrate peace, harmony and goodwill.

A day to remember

Anzac Day is a time of mateship as well as painful memories, writes EDDIE MORTON

“I

saw warfare. I don’t really want to talk about it, but obviously, I lost mates. I don’t really want to say much more about that,” says Graeme Nicholas, treasurer of the East Malvern Returned and Services League. Nicholas is 67 and has two children aged in their 30s. For a long time he was a production manager for the ABC’s news service. Before his career in TV, Nicholas was conscripted to fight during the Vietnam War. “It was 1966 when I went off to training,” he says.“I left for Vietnam in 1967, stayed for about nine months and returned the day after Anzac Day in 1968. “I guess Anzac Day shows how we can turn something as upsetting as war into a celebration.The time of reflection might be the dawn service. But for me, I think a lot about the war and my memories during the march.” Nicholas found his time in Vietnam was made more difficult by the anti-war attitudes of the Australian public. It was the first political war that divided the community, he says. “It was the worst thing about the Vietnam war, apart from actually being there,” he says.“It was shit for every Vietnam veteran to come home. That’s not how it should be. The RSL, at the time, would not admit us because they didn’t recognise Vietnam as ‘a real war’ and you couldn’t tell any of your friends you had been to war because public opinion was bitterly divided over it.” Nicholas remembers not receiving mail for weeks after returning as trade union opposition to Vietnam escalated.“You weren’t allowed to leave wearing your army uniform because people would throw paint on you,” he recalls. He says times and public acceptance have changed.The RSL has had to recognise Vietnam veterans for its own survival and the younger generation is beginning to understand the past. But it has not come without its pain. Nicholas, like many vets, suffered post-traumatic stress disorder after returning from war. It was the reason he joined the league, he says. “I went through PTSD myself and I was helped by someone to overcome it ... There have been a lot of new support services set up,

mainly instigated by Vietnam vets. It makes it much easier to return from war,” he says. The Department of Veterans’ Affairs provided more than 63,000 counselling sessions to veterans of all wars at a cost of more than $165 million in the 12 months to July last year. In December, more than 149,000 veterans with one or more service-related disabilities were on the department’s books, having been accepted under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986, the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004, and the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988. The deputy secretary of the department, Shane Carmody, says younger veterans returning from recent conflicts are more likely to present with post-traumatic stress and depression than in the past. Department figures show that of the 46,500 veterans with an accepted mental-health disability, about 28,300 had a stress disorder, including post-traumatic stress disorder. Twenty-two per cent of the Australian Defence Force community is affected by mentalhealth conditions, including alcohol and drug dependence, compared to 20.7 per cent of the general public. “Substance abuse, rather than just alcohol abuse, is becoming more and more an issue with the younger vets,” Carmody says.“And it is still very difficult to help the younger people coming home from war.” Department of Veterans’ Affairs figures show suicide among veterans has increased from 12 reported cases in 2008 to 26 in 2012.“Every case is a tragedy and it remains difficult to get an exact number because not all veterans stay in touch with the [department] after returning,” Carmody says. Nicholas went through an independent pension officer, rather than the department, when he returned. “It is certainly very different to what it was when I came back,” he says.“There were none of the support structures back then… Even the young blokes coming back from the war today, their children and wives are all offered support.” It is important to Nicholas to help every veteran find a support structure, whether it is a mate to have a beer and a chat with, or a visit from an RSL welfare officer.

“At the other end of the spectrum are the older vets who can feel isolated the older they get,” he says.“Lack of mobility and having your closest and oldest friends pass away is a hard thing, doesn’t matter who you are. I saw the list of homes visited by the East Malvern RSL’s welfare officers the other day and it was nearly two

pages long, so our welfare team certainly does a big job.” In the lead-up to Anzac Day, Nicholas has been focused on fund-raising. His office is cluttered with tins, pins and volunteer rosters. Anzac Day is the biggest money-earning day for the East Malvern RSL; until 1991, it was the Remembrance Day appeal.

“It has nothing to do with the footy game or the branding of Anzac, it is really just the public’s growing understanding of Anzac Day that has contributed to its success,” Nicholas says. “Before I went to the army I never thought about wars and I was too busy having a good time… You would walk past someone shaking

VET SUPPORT: Graeme Nicholas, treasurer of the East Malvern RSL, says Anzac Day is filled with emotion

an Anzac tin; you might drop in a quid and not give it another thought.” Although Nicholas looks forward to catching up with mates, he admits Anzac Day can be tough, filled with upsetting emotions. “The bloke I went through the army with, we met on the day we were both enlisted, we did our

training together and became very, very good mates,” Nicholas says. “He and I both went to the Canungra jungle training camp in Queensland and it was there that we vowed that we would do our best to stick together. The only problem was that he did want to go to Vietnam, whereas I did not. “When training came to an end

I remember our supervisors telling each soldier intermittently where they were headed.‘You’re off to Malaya [now Peninsular Malaysia], mate,’ they said, pointing to the right.‘You’re going to Vietnam,’ pointing to the left. “My mate ended up going to Malaya and I went to Vietnam.Today, that same bloke does my role, VP

and appeals officer, at the Glenroy RSL and we see each other about twice a year. It is the best time when we meet up for lunch. We usually hang around all afternoon. There is so much that is kindred between the two of us.” Nicholas says the RSL will always have a role as long as there are wars.

“If my son or daughter came to me and said they wanted to join the army, I would not be happy about it,” he says. “The only reason I went to the army is because I was conscripted, otherwise there is no way I would have gone into the armed services. “It wasn’t a life I saw for myself and I would never wish it on my kids.”

GLOBAL ROAMING Armadale’s ROSE MARIE STIRLING has the world at her feet – and in her boutiques

F

or most people, their community is their neighbourhood, perhaps their suburb. But the founder and owner of ethical trade boutique Origen, Rose Marie Stirling, has been a global citizen since childhood. As a girl she moved with her family from their native Uruguay to Edinburgh, Scotland, where her father undertook a doctorate in town planning, before moving to Melbourne when she was 13. Chatting at her South Melbourne boutique – one of four Origen stores around Melbourne – Stirling says it was in Edinburgh that she acquired her resilience and a broader outlook. ‘‘My brother Pablo and I had to catch buses to get to school, even though we didn’t speak English,’’ she recalls, adding that the kindness they experienced made her ‘‘more hospitable towards others’’.

‘‘There were single men from everywhere in the world – Nepal, Africa and so on – studying at the university with my father,’’ she says. ‘‘Because we were one of the few families there, they ended up spending Christmas with us. I realised you could look completely different and have a different religion but it’s about connecting.’’ It’s a realisation that has taken a material form at Origen, where intricately beaded bangles made by Guatemalan artisans sit side by side with Thai hilltribe cushions, Amazonian acai seed necklaces and garments made from modal and other eco-friendly fabrics by designers from home and abroad. Stirling’s passion for travel was the spark for opening her first store in 1992. After a stint as a buyer for Ishka, she struck out on her own, journeying to South America to explore a fascination for Incan and Mayan cultures and

reconnect with her roots. Her trading skills took over and she began developing products with artisans in Ecuador and Guatemala. Stirling wanted to support locals to help themselves. ‘‘Guatemala was a dictatorship and people [were selling their] sons to the military, so it was very important to empower the indigenous people in the highlands to have enough money not to have to do that.’’ Stirling’s latest venture involves helping village women in India keep their culture alive through a range of rethreaded necklaces and skirts refashioned from traditional embroidered, mirrored fabrics. “Origen is about valuing artists’ dignity,’’ she says. ‘‘There are so many people involved with Origen. I’m proud to be part of a community which happens to be the entire world.’’ LEEYONG SOO lsoo@mmpgroup.com.au

Shopping after an Autumn shower on GREVILLE STREET, Prahran

IONA BRUCE (right) Lives: Originally from Scotland, but living in Richmond for a year now. Works: I work at Bank of Melbourne. What are you doing here today? Looking around some record stores. What are you wearing? American Apparel hoodie Vans shoes, Lazy Oaf socks, Topshop skirt and American Apparel shirt. The bag is from online somewhere, I’m not sure, I got it quite a while ago. Personal style: Kind of chilled out. I’m not really a girly girl. More tomboyish, kind of. Style muse: I just like what I like.

JESS MIRABELLO (far right) Lives: I’m originally from Adelaide, but I’ve been in Melbourne for just over two years. Works: In finance. What are you doing here today? We had a look at the Chapel Street Bazaar, and then we’re catching The Neverending Story at the Astor. What are you wearing? Lacoste shoes, Incu socks, and Roger David jeans, Incu jacket, and a weathered shirt. Sunnies are just a local brand from General Pants Co. I think. They are nothing special. Personal style: In one word? Rusty. Style muse: I like to take bits from all over the place, bands mainly, like The Strokes. I don’t like genres or stereotypes.

rowing up in the UK, I would often head to the local leisure centre and jump in the pool with my mates.There were never lanes cordoned off for lap swimming and we would mostly see who could swim the furthest underwater and turn handstands. At school I remember diving for bricks in my pyjamas, but I was never taught how to swim freestyle. Having lived in Australia for more than a decade I decided it was time to learnt to swim properly. Founded by adult swimming pioneer Anita Killmier, H2O offers swimming lessons at Prahran Aquatic Centre; South Yarra Sports Centre at Melbourne High School; Lauriston Girls School pool, Armadale; and private lessons at The Swim Studio in East Malvern. I head to Prahran to join the H2O novice squad in a class for slower swimmers who need to work on stroke technique. My coach Adam starts off correcting my default and most comfortable stroke – breaststroke. His instruction leads me

to glide through the water gracefully once I remember to look straight down rather than ahead. I have tried to teach myself freestyle but inevitably ended up spluttering before I can reach half a length. Adam patiently breaks down the stroke and we start by concentrating on my breathing. Once I am at ease breaking the surface of the water while still exhaling, I use a kickboard and flippers to practise. We gradually add elements including turning to breath and arm strokes.

The verdict Each of us gets plenty of attention and advice as well as time to put theory into practise. Although I’m still a way from doing a 50-metre lap of freestyle without a float, in one short session I feel more confident and less puffed.

he space above the new Fonda restaurant in Chapel Street, Windsor finally had its big reveal last Thursday night: Atico (Spanish for attic) is the latest moody, intimate cocktail bar in one of Melbourne’s best strips for classy soaks. Once upon a time in Windsor, the only cocktail you could find was a cocktail frankfurt. CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT Steph Lane kept the jars coming. Not my best social snap I’ll admit, but the view from the upstairs window was kinda cool. Did I say moody? If it weren’t for these candles, I wouldn’t have been able to see my camera settings. After surviving their Mexican Standoff cocktails, guests enjoyed plonk from Onannon winemaker Sam Middleton. Sophie Keath manned the stairs with aplomb. Does her iPad suggest the demise of the printed guest list? Did you know it’s a criminal offence among inner-city DJs to smile? No jail time then for DJ Camilo. John Dillman and Paul Best sit down to enjoy a couple of quiet drinks. Joanne Feehan, Amy Collins and Jessica Tonissen had plenty to blog about.

In my pursuit for individuality and uniqueness, Cedar Hospitality provided the best product, service and staff knowledge. Cedar is the best fit for my new venue Woodstock Pizzicheria

ired of watching gallery visitors dash past paintings, Manyung Gallery art consultant Irina Agaronyan has leapt to join the worldwide movement called Slow Art Day. On Saturday, April 27, the gallery will join about 250 venues that will require the viewer to spend 10 minutes looking at each of five artworks.The participants will then head for lunch to share their experiences. “Everything is fast-fast in this instantaneous world,’’ says Agaronyan. “A study done by the Louvre in Paris found that people spend only 15 seconds even in front of the Mona Lisa, the world’s most famous painting.They go past, take a snapshot so they can show others that they have seen it. “I wasn’t surprised because I’ve seen people fly through the gallery and make up their minds in three seconds – ‘I like this, I don’t like this’. So we thought Slow Art Day was perfect to give people

PREVIEW

SLOW ART DAY the chance to relax and make discoveries about the artwork.’’ Slow Art Day began in New York in 2009 when Phil Terry, the CEO of a consulting firm called Creative Good, spent an hour in front of German-American painter Hans Hofmann’s colourful 1943 work Fantasia. The experience inspired him to create the movement, which began with 16 galleries in the US, Canada and Europe and has grown to include key institutions in every continent, including the National Gallery of Victoria and the Art Gallery of New South Wales. The non-profit event is hosted by volunteers who want to “slow people down’’. Agaronyan has selected five artists working in different media for the immersive experience. She will feature sculptor Stephen Glassborow’s large Toy Boy, abstract artist Rowena Martinich’s Colour Storm, Ann Cape’s drawing of a naked female, Rebecca Cool’s whimsical, mixed-media Hills

and Valleys, and a linocut by Kate Hudson. Agaronyan encourages viewers to ponder the artwork from various perspectives. She also advises viewers to be aware of the environment – from the colour of the walls to the smells, and the

sounds outside – in a meditative way. “The artists spend months on their work and they have so much to say.The longer people spend with the work the more they get out of it,’’ she says. “You can whiz through a gallery

and feel really exhausted because it can be overwhelming to see so much. The work evolves with the imagination. People will remember these works because of the attention they give to each piece.’’ HARBANT GILL

Footy rivals kick off Anzac Day tradition ARI HATZIS

BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au THE clash between Collingwood and Essendon clash at the MCG on Anzac Day might be the biggest ticket in town this week but East Malvern and Clayton football clubs are hoping to start a tradition of their own. The two great rivals will play the only match in the Southern Football League on Anzac Day, a game both clubs hope will turn into an annual community event. “It’s a pretty big honour to play on such an important day,” East Malvern captain Mitch Ferguson says. “I think it’s important to add a bit of professionalism and support to Division 1 football and we have a great rivalry with Clayton so it should be a great game on an important day.” Clayton sought agreement from East Malvern, the RSL and the Southern Football League before booking in the game. It will be the only SFL game on Anzac Day, with the Reserves and Colts from the two clubs meeting at Meade Reserve on Saturday.

ANZAC PRIZE: Panthers skipper Mitch Ferguson is reflected in the John Monash Cup, held by Clays captain Jayden Gilmour The Thursday match will follow a short ceremony, which will include the Anzac Ode, Last Post, and the Australian national anthem. Clayton vice-captain Jayden Gilmour is equally excited. ‘‘I’ve never heard of local sides out here playing games on Anzac Day,’’ he says. ‘‘It’s exciting for both sides

and I’m sure they’ll all come out to play wearing their hearts on their sleeves. Playing in a game like this is the closest thing we can do to honour those who served our country.’’ After East Malvern spent last season in Division 2, this will be the first match between the rivals in two years and Ferguson says there’s

plenty of respect between the Panthers and Clays. “We’ve had some really good, close contests over the years, so it will be a good yardstick to see where we’re at,” he says. “There are guys at both clubs who have played for both, so there are connections all the way through.”

The two clubs will play for the John Monash Cup and Ferguson is hopeful his club will get the chance to host on the same day next year. “The clubs have really embraced it and we really hope it becomes a staple of the fixture for years to come,” Ferguson says. “We have friends and family who want to come down and be part of the tribute so we see this as a foundation event. ‘‘To get the chance to play on Anzac Day is a privilege.” The match at Meade Reserve, Haughton Road, Clayton starts at 1.30pm. OLD Scotch will play its Round 3 match with St Bedes/Mentone on Anzac Day, the only VAFA games on the day. The Reserves will start at 11.40am and the seniors at 2pm at Brindisi Street Oval, Mentone.

Schools hit Chargers

Two in a row for De La

BRIEFS

DE LA SALLE bucked the trend in a round of VAFA upsets on Saturday, leading from start to finish against a strong University Blues outfit to remain unbeaten in the Premier Division. All other favourites went down, but De La continued the impressive form from the previous week to extend the lead at every change in a 15.18 (108) to 7.16 (58) win. De La looked untroubled to put through five majors into the wind in the first term to take control. Uni Blues, coming off an openinground loss, matched the home side for scoring opportunities but lacked finishing, which cost them dearly. The second term was equally emphatic for De La, which kicked 4.5 for the term to lead by 29 at the halfway mark. A good start with the breeze was crucial to the Blues in the third, but De La stepped up the pressure again and continued to pile on the goals. Interestingly the home side was most damaging into the wind, kicking another five in the third term to build a 50-point buffer by the final change. That proved more than enough to give the home side a second win of the season. Sam Pickett was the pick of the De La forwards with four goals, while the smaller Ed Clinch kicked two. De La Salle coach Greg McLoughlin said the other results in the round made the win extra important. “It’s amazing,” he said. “I’ve not been involved in an A-grade season where I can’t see an easy game.’’ Elsewhere, Old Xaverians are winless after two rounds following a loss to newly promoted Uni Blacks.

ARI HATZIS

BY EWEN McRAE OAKLEIGH Chargers will bring 16 new faces into their side to face Geelong Falcons on Saturday as the private schools competition saps many of their leading players. The Chargers lost by one point, 11.11 (77) to 11.10 (76), against Western Jets in Round 1 of the TAC Cup on Saturday. Now coach Justin Wenke will have to adjust to losing twothirds of his team, who will not return to him until the last few weeks of the TAC Cup season. ‘‘We have 16 private school boys leaving us so its up to those players who come into the side to make an impact and give a good account of themselves,’’ Wenke said. ‘‘We will do a game review on Monday and give our kids some feedback then on Wednesday and Friday we will work to get our new group ready to play against Geelong. ‘‘As much as it’s a changeover period, it’s also a really exciting time around the football club because those boys who put in the long hours in pre-season will now get the chance to put on the Chargers guernsey.’’ Wenke added that his side had to cut out the errors after the Jets came back from 18 points down early in the last term to take the lead with minutes left. Lewis Fitzgerald, Billy Hogan, James Toohey and Andrew Scott were best players for the Chargers with Hogan adding three goals. The Chargers face Geelong Falcons at Warrawee Park at 1pm on Saturday. – ROY WARD

■ PANTHERS DOWN AGAIN East Malvern improved on their Round 1 effort but still couldn’t get the points in their Round 2 Southern Football League clash with Cheltenham on Saturday. The Panthers went down 14.13 (97) to 8.12 (60) in their first home game of the season. ■ BRIGHTON TOO GOOD St Kevin’s was outplayed from the opening bounce against Old Brighton in Saturday’s VAFA Premier B action, going down by 73 points. Seven goals to one in the opening term set up Brighton’s 24.9 (153) to 12.8 (80) win. ■ KEV’S MAGNIFICENT 7 St Kevin’s beat Melbourne Grammar 26-12 in the final of the annual Victorian Schools rugby Sevens carnival at Xavier College at the weekend.

UP HE GOES: De La Salle forward Sam Pickett soars above the pack to take a spectacular mark against University Blues The Blacks scored only one goal in the first half but came back at the powerful Xavs in the second half to win 8.15 (63) to 7.14 (56). Michael Darvell and John Shaw were the only multiple goal scorers for the Xavs, while Ben Kennedy was close to best on ground.

TEM still without a win as Camberwell takes charge TOORAK East Malvern’s winless start to the new Premier hockey season continued at the weekend, going down to a powerful Camberwell side. After facing last year’s premiers Greensborough in the first round, TEM had to contend with the 2012 runner-up in round two, and despite fighting they eventually lost 4-2. Camberwell showed their scoring prowess early with two goals inside

the opening 10 minutes of the game. Aaron Kleinschmidt had a hand in both goals for the home side, the first off a penalty corner, and the second a bullet-like tomahawk across the face of goal to James Webster who deflected it in. TEM responded with two of their own, both from penalty corner opportunities. Adam Seccull nailed the first for the visitors with a precise drag flick

into the top corner, before Jeremy Robinson picked off a deflection by Camberwell’s Kookaburra keeper George Bazeley and tie the game up. The game looked like remaining tied at the half, but a penalty stroke was awarded to Camberwell just before the break, which Kleinschmidt duly slotted for a 3-2 lead. TEM’s job became harder when back-to-back yellow cards to Matt Pitcher and Ben Pugh reduced the

visitors to 10 men for most of the second half. Andrew Philpott scored the home side’s fourth off another penalty corner and the result was secure. TEM captain Ben Seccull said Camberwell deserved to win the game, but was happy with his team’s performance. “We tried to make it scrappy and not let it be free-flowing hockey and seemed to do OK,” Seccull said.

■ UNICORNS WIN FIRST UP Melbourne Rugby Club kicked off the new Dewar Shield season with a 34-22 win over Moorabbin, the team which inflicted the only 2012 loss on the Unicorns by beating them in the grand final. ■ SIGN FOR SOFTBALL The Melbourne Softball League, based at Fawkner Park, begins on Sunday, May 4 and registrations for new players and teams are being taken.
