sing a song of christmas By Rebecca Miller

S

ilent night, holy night, are just some of the lyrics Wyndham locals will hear at this year’s Christmas carols in Werribee. The tradition of lighting a candle and singing Christmas songs is a time-honoured tradition and an inexpensive way for families to have fun together this festive season. Carols by Candlelight is on at Werribee Park for the second year but has been running and hosted by the Christian Churches of Wyndham for more than 40 years, carols committee chairman Mark Nidenko says. “It’s always a lovely night with about 4000-plus people attending,” Nidenko says. “There will be kids’ pre-entertainment with face painting, animals and an earth ball. And, before the carols start, a re-enacted nativity of the Christmas story with camels and a donkey.” Nidenko says it’s a great event for families to come down and have a picnic and enjoy entertainment from the police pipe band and local talent, including the Goss Choir and Western Region Concert Band.

exci

The carols will be held on Saturday, December 14. Gates open at 5.30pm and carols begin about 8.30pm. And local residents can sing along to more carols with renowned Gaslight entertainers performing The Spirit of Christmas at Wyndham Cultural Centre on Tuesday, December 17 at 11am. “It’s a wonderful mix of traditional carols and contemporary Christmas songs, packed with comedy and exuberant performances,” Wyndham mayor, Cr Bob Fairclough says. “Gaslight stars Roy Best (tenor) and Cheryl Darvidis (soprano), with Robyn Wommersley on piano and compered by the charming Chris McKenna. “Christmas doesn’t seem quite right without the cheer of carols and sharing this time with friends and family. This music and comedy show provides people with that in abundance.” Complimentary Christmas cake and morning tea will be served one hour before the show which is sponsored by Wyndham City. Tickets $13. Inquiries: 8734 6000

Glam Christmas starters

N

owadays many families are developing their own traditions, serving up delicious Christmas food that suits our hot climate. Gathering with family and friends around Christmas lunch is always a very special time and the choice of food should reflect that specialness. It needs to be festive and include foods not eaten every day to make the occasion a bit more glam and luxurious. Here are some starter ideas:

Welcome everyone: Watermelon punch

Chop a 2kg seedless watermelon into 2cm chunks. Freeze half, placing on foil in a single layer. Blend the other half, press through a sieve into a jug, discard any solids. Stir one-third cup caster sugar and half-cup of lemon juice in a punch bowl until sugar dissolves. Add 3 cups ginger ale, 374ml vodka, 3 cups chilled sparkling wine, chilled watermelon juice, frozen watermelon pieces and a mint leaves from a whole bunch.

Kicking off: Prawns (2.5kg) with three sauces

until combined. Stir in almonds and set aside to cool and thicken. Pistachio tarator: Cover one slice of stale bread (crusts removed) with water, soak for 5 minutes, drain and squeeze out all moisture. Process 1-1/2 cups pistachios, 2 chopped garlic cloves, then add bread, 60m lemon juice, 2-1/2 tbs olive oil, 2 tbs natural yoghurt - pulse until combined. Gradually add 1/2 cup water, pulse until smooth. Add 1/4-cup chopped fresh mint and process everything until thick and smooth. Add salt to taste. Semi-dried tomato aioli: Process 125g drained semi-dried tomatoes, 2 egg yolks, 1 tbs dijon mustard, 2 tbs white balsamic vinegar until combined. In a thin stream, add 250ml grapeseed oil until combined, then add 2 tbs lemon juice, process. Gradually add 1-2 tbs warm water - pulse until dipping consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

Honey and almond dipping sauce: Place 200g honey, 1 tbs fish sauce, 3 tsp lemon juice in saucepan over medium heat; stir for 1-2 minutes

a bag full of gift ideas

W

hether the family celebrates Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or Boxing Day, one thing’s for sure – the kids’ priority will be presents. Some say buying a gift for someone is an artform and a lot of thought often goes into getting the right one. For kids, the number of presents is usually more important than the cost, so buying several less expensive items will generally satisfy demands. Here’s a list of ideas, big and small, the kids will probably love this Christmas.

Boys: 1. Trampoline – spring-less, with an enclosure for ultimate safety 2. A bike or scooter – to burn off excess energy 3. Lego/Duplo – for hours of clever fun 4. Roller shoes (shoes with built-in wheels underneath) – to cruise with mates 5. Board games (Think Twister, Junior Monopoly or Mouse Trap) – for the inner competitor 6. Anything ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ – still a winner after all these years! 7. Remote-controlled car or helicopter – get dad in on the game 8. Novelty camping chair – a personal throne 9. Pirate tent – a fun-packed indoor cubby 10. A superhero costume – what boy doesn’t want to pretend he has magic powers?

Girls: 1. A scrapbooking and card-making kit – for hours of creative pleasure 2. A folding plush toy/pillow pet – to relax on in front of a DVD 3. Furby – great practice before getting a real pet 4. Lego/Duplo – colours and designs now appeal to girls 5. Jewellery-making kit – get a creative fix 6. Novelty sleeping bag – for those girly slumber parties 7. Electronic learning tablet – combining brain training with fun 8. ‘Big Hugs’ Elmo – unconditional love in huggable form 9. Flip-out sofa – ideal for movie marathons 10. Shell pool/sandpit – summer fun in the sun Other ideas include a voucher for a cooking class/school for junior masterchefs, or a personalised adventure book where the child is the main character and friend’s and family names appear in the story.

Cookbook treasures By Corrie Perkin

C

hristmas is coming up fast and, for many of us, a summer beach holiday is also just around the corner. If that’s not enough to prompt a visit to your nearest bookshop, think about books as Christmas stocking fillers, end-of-year gifts for teachers, summer’s inevitable rush of birthday parties, thank-youfor-having-me gifts, rewards for children who have completed a successful school year, and time out to sit on a deck chair, in your garden, with a cuppa and a good book. We kick off with national food icon Maggie Beer’s new offering, Maggie’s Christmas. Forget the Christmas concept for a moment and whether that sits comfortably in your philosophical camp; this gorgeous hardcover book is actually a love letter to summer, its bountiful supply of fruits and vegetables, and the opportunities available to share meals outdoors. It is the perfect cookbook for this time of year in Australia. As Maggie writes: “From my earliest memories, it’s always been about celebrating the season and the pleasures of a bountiful table with family and friends.’’ Maggie’s Christmas is divided into a chronological order of the Beer family’s December-January rituals. Chapter one, crabbing at Port Parham, takes us to the Beer family’s South Australian seaside shack and introduces us to the tradition of catching and cooking crab. The recipes are mouth-watering:

white gazpacho with blue swimmer crab, pasta with crab and roasted smoked tomatoes, and Maggie’s version of crab cakes, to name three. December unfolds with pre-Christmas drinks (the perfect chapter for anyone seeking pass-around platter inspiration), Christmas carols buffet for the choir, Christmas Eve supper, then the big day itself. The final chapters address Boxing Day’s leftovers, New Year’s Eve ideas, and my favourite chapter, food for the beach house. Sydney chef Justin North trades his famous commercial kitchen for his private domestic space in Family Cooking. The father of small children, North reminds us you don’t have to be a professional chef to plate up a beautiful piece of salmon or a piece of rib-eye. Beware, though: some of his recipes do require above-average culinary skills. They are certainly worth the effort, however, and your family will love you all the more for the treats you present. New Melbourne publishing house Story Matters Most honours Chin Chin restaurant, its chef Benjamin Cooper, owner Chris Lucas and his team, with Chin Chin: The Book. “My first impressions of Chin Chin, soon after its opening, were that it disrupted the status quo, as all great cultural endeavours should,’’ writes Melbourne Theatre Company artistic director Brett Sheehy in his foreword. This book – one of our favourites among the new releases – reflects those wonderful disruptions, and is a must-buy for anyone who agrees with Cooper’s

be careful out there, police warn as roads get busy WYNDHAM

Police are cracking down on pedestrian and driver behaviour after four people, including two children, were struck by cars in Wyndham in less than a week. With roads and shopping centre car parks getting busier in the lead-up to Christmas, police are warning road users to take care. Westgate road policing advisor Acting Senior Sergeant Fiona Waters said that in each

of the four accidents, which occurred between November 14 and 20, it was lucky the drivers had been driving slowly. She said it was disturbing that two children had been hit after running on to roads. Although they were hospitalised, neither suffered serious injury. In the first incident, a four-year-old ran on to the road in Hoppers Crossing. The driver, who had been travelling at a low speed, managed to take evasive action, hitting

the child with a side mirror. In Point Cook, a two-year-old received minor injuries after running into the path of a car. “If the vehicles had been travelling at a higher speed, the results could have been much worse,” Acting Senior Sergeant Waters said. An elderly person who walked in front of a car in Hoppers Crossing was hospitalised with minor injuries. In a separate incident, a distracted driver

fresh face in tarneIt The Tarneit electorate will have a new MP after next year’s state election, with opposition treasury spokesman Tim Pallas seeking preselection for the new seat of Werribee. Tarneit was significantly altered during a boundary redistribution earlier this year, shifting the suburb of Werribee to the new electorate. The change forced Mr Pallas, whose electorate office is on Station Street, Werribee, to choose whether he would contest Tarneit or Werribee in the coming election. Derrimut’s Labor MP Telmo Languiller intends to seek preselection for Tarneit. Mr Languiller, who has been Derrimut MP since 1999, said he had a clear understanding of the issues affecting Tarneit residents. The Labor Party is expected to finalise its candidates by December 15. \ LL

When Rose Young turns on her Christmas lights this year, she will be hoping they attract enough visitors to give a Wyndham Vale family more happy memories. Every year, the Honour Avenue resident decorates her house, inside and out, with lights to spread some Christmas cheer. The decorations attract hundreds of people throughout December. This year, Mrs Young is encouraging visitors to leave a donation for the family of Alexandra Miller. As reported by the Weekly, Alex, 4, has a rare and incurable brain tumor known as diffuse intrinsic pontine. She was diagnosed with the tumour, which affects only children, in October. Doctors initially told her parents Andrew and Eva that she would live between three and 12 months. But after visiting Sydney-based neurosurgeon Dr Charlie Teo, they are hopeful she will live another one to three years. Mrs Young’s great-granddaughter Chelsea Lyttle, who lives with her, said she wanted to help Alex and her family enjoy the time they had left together. “Throughout the years [my greatgrandmother] has had people wanting to

MY TOWN

I

’m probably going to raise the ire of some of you, but isn’t it about time we just banned smoking? Over the years I’ve heard the numerous arguments from smokers. Sure, they’re your lungs that you’re slowly destroying. But when you breathe that crap out in the street, it’s often me breathing it in. Yes, you pay heaps of tax on cigarettes. But you’re also much more likely to have a heart attack, stroke, cancer or diabetes because of your fi lthy habit, so you should contribute more to the health system. You might throw your butts in the bin, but plenty of others don’t – cigarette butts are the most common thing picked up on Clean Up Australia Day. Yep, it’s a hard habit to kick, but so are many others, so get some support and a can of toughen-up into you. We don’t want to become a nanny state, but the overwhelming evidence is clear: smoking is the fast track to an untimely death. While the numbers of people smoking are reportedly dropping – and at about $30 a packet, who can afford it? – people aren’t quitting fast enough in my opinion. What’s got my back up about the world’s most disgusting habit? A recent walk along the Werribee River revealed a world of peace and tranquility, beautiful gum trees and merrily bubbling river water. It also showed up as the wasteful society we are, with cigarette butts and discarded packets lining the path and river edge. Driving home the other day, I watched two drivers carelessly throw butts out their windows, leaving them to burn away on the road. While shopping on Monday, I had to walk through a wall of puffers standing just metres from the entrance in a cloud of toxic smoke. There is nothing good or nice about smoking. So let’s just do away with it altogether. \ EMMA SUTCLIFFE Emma Sutcliffe is a Little River-based freelance writer

Be prepared: Terry Hedt, CFA captain at Little River ponders the upcoming fire season. (MICHAEL COPP)

FIRE SAFETY

Wyndham landowners are being urged to take preventive action now, with the municipality identified as a high-risk area ahead of the fire season. CFA western metropolitan community safety manager David Allen said households on the urban fringe faced the biggest risk. He said a wet winter and warm spring had fuelled the growth of large areas of long grass adjoining residential estates, posing a similar danger as seen in a fire at Donnybrook and Epping on January 18 that burnt more than 2000 hectares in a few hours. Mr Allen said ‘buffer zones’ – fire breaks involving ploughing areas, slashing grass or burning vegetation – were being established in Wyndham’s high-risk areas. Aircraft would be on call to service any area deemed too difficult to get ground crews into. Little River CFA captain Terry Hedt said the brigade was preparing for another hectic fire season after experiencing its busiest summer for “many, many years” earlier this year. Mr Hedt urged residents to clear their properties of long grass and other potential fuel. \ SUE HEWITT and LAURA LITTLE

werribee level-crossing bid wins applause WYNDHAM

The state opposition’s pledge to remove two notorious level crossings in Werribee has been welcomed by lobby group LeadWest, which says the project is long overdue. Opposition leader Daniel Andrews has promised to remove Melbourne’s 50 worst level crossings within eight years if Labor wins next year’s election. Labor’s ‘Project 10,000’ also includes $1 billion for improvements to outer suburban roads and a commitment to build a metro rail tunnel to increase capacity on the city loop. In Werribee, the Cherry and Werribee streets crossings will be removed.

agencies unite against increasing homelessness HOUSING

Wyndham welfare agencies have vowed to work together to keep people off the streets as the city’s eviction and homelessness rates reach a new high. It is estimated that more than 420 people in Wyndham are homeless – up from 107 in 2001. As reported by the Weekly, 263 people were evicted from rental properties between July 1, 2012 and June 30 last year, while 15.4 per cent of homeowners are experiencing mortgage stress. The city’s welfare and support groups met with Lalor MP Joanne Ryan at Wayaperri House last Friday to discuss ways to tackle the problem. The agencies formed an

Ms Ryan said she was concerned that Wyndham’s low public housing stock and state and federal government cuts to legal aid, tenancy services and affordable housing programs would exacerbate the problem. “These are very serious issues that are having a huge impact upon our community.” \ LAURA LITTLE and SUE HEWITT

Chloe and Maddison (pictured) joined classmates to put on a show for Children and Early Childhood Development Minister Wendy Lovell, who opened the kinder’s third room during a visit to Werribee. The additional room means the centre can offer 15 hours of kindergarten to children in the year before school. An outdoor area was also upgraded as part of the development. The government provided $300,000 for the extension, with Wyndham council and the kinder investing $975,000 and $3000 respectively. Ms Lovell said it was important children had access to quality kindergarten services. “Ninety-five per cent of a child’s brain develops in the first five years ... we can make a real difference to a child’s life.” \ LL

Werribee’s Jimmy Cupples won’t let a torn tendon stop him doing his bit to raise awareness of the dangers of diabetes. Cupples, who this year was a contestant on The Voice, will run eight kilometres around Melbourne’s Tan track on Sunday as part of the Take Steps for Good Health festival, despite tearing a tendon in his foot last week while training for the event. The event encourages people to reduce their risk of developing diabetes by slowly increasing their exercise levels. Cupples became involved on the advice of a friend. “I like the idea of taking small

We don’t have to be fitness fanatics and we don’t have to change our whole lives. ‘‘We just have to say, ‘I am going to eat a little bit less and get a bit more exercise’.” Cupples hopes Sunday’s festival makes people more aware of the risks associated with diabetes. “I had a couple of friends who are overweight and were diagnosed with diabetes and my father, who is 73, was told he is borderline. He’s started eating a little bit less and lost weight, and that has put him into the safe category.” \ LL

BRIEFS carelessness proves costly A Tarneit man has been fined for careless driving after being investigated over a near-miss on the Princes Freeway in Berwick. The man, 27, was driving on the freeway about 7.50pm on November 15 when he was almost involved in an accident with a truck. The incident was captured on the truck’s dashboard camera. He was fined $346 and gained three demerit points. \ mobile phone penalties increased Wyndham motorists who use their mobile phone while driving can now be fined $433 and gain four demerit points. Police began enforcing the increased penalties on Monday. Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill said checking your phone for just two seconds while driving at 50km/h was like travelling blind for 27 metres. “Distraction is a major cause of crashes and the use of mobile phones is a worrying trend.” \ celebrate with us Wyndham residents are being invited to mark International Day of People with a Disability on Monday at a community event.

CUTS TO DULL CHRISTMAS CHEER (Weekly, November 20)

Car doors are more solid than you realise. I discovered this the hard way, having one flung open by a taxi driver as I cycled past his parked car. The driver was apologetic, swearing he looked in the mirror. Little comfort for my scraped and battered body. Having exchanged some skin (mine) for some paint (his), we also exchanged details, but lack of more life-threatening injuries left police decidedly disinterested. The threat of “dooring” is a constant fear for the cyclist. Alert riding had, until now, kept incidents at close calls. But the sudden appearance of the taxi door proved the end of my lucky streak. As cycling rates rise, everyone has a responsibility to remember the road is there to share. A glance over the shoulder costs nothing. Collecting a cyclist can cost you more than $350 in fines or, in less happy circumstances, a life. \ BENJAMIN MILLAR

fighting spirit in mp’s maiden speech

film seen through frightened eyes

FEDERAL POLITICS

(SCOTT MCNAUGHTON)

Lalor MP Joanne Ryan may still be trying to find her way around the halls of Federal Parliament, but that hasn’t stopped her from standing up for the needs of her community. Ms Ryan used her maiden speech to remind the federal government that her electorate needed improved infrastructure and access to health care, and to vow to fight for better education for students across the country. She also raised concerns about the government’s decision to repeal funding for the Diversity and Social Cohesion Program, from which Werribee Football Club was to benefit, and for the Regional Development Australia Fund. Speaking to the Weekly after her first two weeks in Parliament, Ms Ryan said she was also worried about the government’s plans to scrap the “schoolkids bonus”. The government has introduced legislation to stop the payment. If it is passed by the end of the year, the next payment, due in January, will not be made. The six-monthly bonus provides parents on Centrelink benefits of $205 per primary school child or $355 per secondary school child. Ms Ryan, a former principal, said

scrapping the bonus would hit parents and schools hard. “[My office] has already received calls from worried parents,” she said. “In Victoria [schools will receive] a double hit because the state government reduced the Education Maintenance Allowance.” The federal government has said it could not afford to fund the

“schoolkids bonus” because it was being paid for by the mining tax. But Ms Ryan said she could not understand how the two were linked. “How can you make taking money away from families a part of a national conversation about supporting big business?” she said. \ LAURA LITTLE

After working with Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie on her latest movie, a Point Cook filmmaker will shun the bright lights to work on a grassroots project. Byron J Brochmann is the assistant director on Jolie’s film Unbroken, now being shot in Australia. Brochmann and fellow Point Cook resident and film producer Tony Hooper are using crowdfunding to finance a short film against domestic violence and its effects on children. Brochmann will direct Under The Bed, a film written by Hooper about family violence from a child’s perspective, which will air at film festivals around the world. The pair have raised $1500 toward the initial $14,000 cost to produce the live action and animated film. “Under The Bed will open up our views on a life lived through violence and the effects it has on everyday children,’’ Brochmann said. Hooper said people could buy a $50 sponsorship for the fi lm as a Christmas gift and have their friend or relatives’ name in the movie’s credits. “It isn’t fair to turn a blind eye.” \ SUE HEWITT » pozible.com/underthebed

MY wyndham \ things are just write for this expat, writes REBECCA MILLER

A

Werribee resident for the past 13 years, writer Barbara Goulter loves living in Wyndham. “It’s a lovely life,” she says.

Where’s your favourite neighbourhood retreat spot? I love Werribee South. I like looking at the farms and going to see the ocean, sitting down by the water and walking along the foreshore. I feel like I’m in a whole other world.

What wouldn’t you change in your neighbourhood? The people; everything you need is within walking distance; the accessibility to Melbourne; frequency of the trains; and Medicare. Life here is not expensive compared to when I was living in San Francisco. I love Werribee Park for the birds and vegetation. And Werribee Open Range Zoo – it’s wonderful. I love the animals and going on the safari bus. Werribee River is a great asset, and the swim centre where I go for water aerobics and water walking is a special place.

What have you achieved as an author? I was an English lecturer back in my original homeland of the United States and am now retired, but still writing. I have self-published several books over the years and, in the early ’90s, had professionally published The Father-Daughter Dance, which I worked on with a psychologist. I recently launched

my latest book Where Others Stop and Turn, which is autobiographical fiction based on my relationship with my late Australian husband and how we met in San Francisco. \

What do you remember being in Wyndham that’s no longer there? The area used to be easy to get around, but the traffic has gotten much worse.

(MARK SMITH)

What’s your favourite eatery or best place to get coffee? Raffael’s in Watton Street, Werribee. It’s very inviting and has a fireplace. Everything is good there, including the rich desserts. I love Japanese food, particularly sashimi and sushi. I visit the take-away Japanese restaurant near me, or get Japanese from the food court at Werribee Plaza.

(surname withheld) is experiencing similar struggles. Joan and her husband, both in their 70s, are among the growing number of grandparents looking after grandchildren as their own children battle with drug abuse. “My son and his partner have two beautiful kids. We just try and keep it normal [for the children],’’ Joan says. “The older [grandchild] gets angry and says he hates me and hates being here and wants to be with his mum and dad. I want them to be with mum and dad, too, and not have to come back to us.’’ Hill says there aren’t enough resources put into helping people with drug and mental health issues. “Youth services are pretty poor,” Joan says. “For young people in need, Sunbury’s existing youth centre, now open in school hours, should stay open from 4-8pm. They have a facility there and they don’t appear to use it. “If you don’t play sport in towns like Sunbury, there isn’t anything else to do.” Joan says social media has played a key role in making drugs socially acceptable. “The kids seem to think it’s cool to take these tablets, but they don’t know what they are taking and it ends up in their system and they end up having a fit, a turn or whatever.’’ Hill and Joan have formed a bond through their children’s battles and believe that support of other parents is vital. Hill is working towards setting up a parents’ group in Sunbury, but both women say there’s only so much they can do. “We can talk to you, we can run stories in the paper and run forums, but the government needs to do more. “It’s easy to say just put them in rehab, but I can tell you they won’t go if they don’t want to.” \ tmurray@mmpgroup.com.au

Chairwoman Sushanthi Don says, on average, 10 plates are stolen from cars in Wyndham each week, mainly from train and shopping centre car parks. She says new cars and luxury vehicles are often targets, with offenders using stolen plates to avoid detection when committing crimes. More than 10,400 plates were stolen in Victoria last year and Wyndham was in the top 10 police service areas hit. This Saturday, at Point Cook Town Centre’s Target car park, from 10am to 4pm, volunteers including Claire Broughton and Sacha Delimitros (pictured) will fit anti-theft screws for a gold coin donation. \ SUE HEWITT

Christmas At The Lakes ADVERTISING FEATURE

Embrace the giving season

R

esidents can celebrate the festive season and help community groups at the same time by attending the eighth annual Christmas at the Lakes on December 7. Last year’s event at Breezewater Reserve in Sanctuary Lakes attracted 4000 people. This year’s program is again jam-packed with activities for younger members of the family. From 4pm, there will be an animal farm, face painting, food and craft stalls, live performances and Christmas carols sung by local talent and schoolchildren, rides, a visit from Santa and a fireworks finale. The event is organised by local business people, community groups and residents. Christmas at the Lakes chairman Bruce Cahoon says it has become an important date on the Point Cook social calendar. “Since the beginning, surplus funds raised have been pledged to worthy causes such as Whitelion, which supports displaced young people in the community, the Point Cook CFA, Point Cook Lions and Rotary clubs,” Mr Cahoon says. “We have committed to support these organisations again in 2013 and the committee has pledged to donate to them all the profits generated.” Manager of Point Cook Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank, Dora Pyke, says the

bank is pleased to be supporting the local event. “Christmas at the Lakes is a great chance for people to come together and enjoy a free family event.” The bank is supporting the animal farm and there will be a visit by its mascot, Piggy. “Since opening the doors of our branch, our customers have helped us return more than $2.7 million to support important community groups and projects such as Christmas at the Lakes.” A free shuttle bus service will operate from the Sanctuary Lakes shopping centre, Murong Street at Point Cook Town Centre, and from the Sanctuary Lakes South Boulevard. The event is pet- and alcohol-free. A gold coin donation upon entry would be appreciated. \

Williams Landing Developer \ Cedar Woods Properties Community groups in Wyndham and Hobsons Bay are sharing in about $25,000 thanks to the Williams Landing Neighbourhood Grants Scheme supported by developer Cedar Woods Properties. “Since starting the grants program in 2009, Cedar Woods has donated about $100,000 to more than 100 community groups,” Cedar Woods Properties state manager Nathan Blackburne said. “We are inspired by the applications we received and appreciate the tireless work undertaken by not-for profit organisations within the wider Williams Landing community.” Mr Blackburne said it was the community spirit and efforts of such organsations that made Williams Landing such a sought-after address, and Cedar Woods Properties would continue to support the region’s growth. Recipient causes include food programs for the homeless, road safety training for children, self-defence workshops for women and subsidising registration costs for sports clubs to increase accessibility for underprivileged players. The grants will be given to kindergartens, a primary school, several sports clubs, Scouts and Girl Guides, a church, cultural and friendship associations, emergency services, festivals, a traders association and a community centre. Grants committee member and Point Cook Bendigo Bank manager Dora Pyke believes the scheme has many benefits. “The Williams Landing Neighbourhood Grants Scheme contributes back into our local communities, helping organisations and volunteers continue their amazing work. It’s been a real honour to be part of the judging process,” Ms Pyke said. \

Community outlook: Mayor Bob Fairclough. All smiles: The Williams Landing Neighbourhood Grants Scheme panel – Charmaine Fonseca, Andrew Elsbury, David Gibilisco, Dora Pyke, John Ballestrino and Bob Fairclough. (Ateia Photography)

MUSIC

The Earth, The Sea, The Moon, The Sky \ Catherine Traicos and the Starry Night » www.catherinetraicos.com

Doctor Who \ DVD and Blu-ray » www.bbcondvd.com.au It’s hard to come late to a long-running series. Particularly when that series is Doctor Who, which this week celebrates its 50th anniversary. Really, the best place to tune in is with the 2005 return, which saw Christopher Eccleston reinvent the foppish Time Lord as a leather-jacketed anarchist with survivor’s guilt. Newly available on Blu-ray, Eccleston’s sole series is a superb fusion of madcap adventure and proper drama. Writer Russell T. Davies (best known for creating Queer As Folk) brings a sense of domesticity to the TARDIS, keeping the focus on companion Rose and her family. This head-in-space, heart-on-the-ground approach leads the show into new and frequently teary emotional territory. Those curious about the older Docs are also in luck. The Doctors Revisited DVD set presents 11 of the best stories from the past 50 years, alongside snappy half-hour introductions to each incarnation. Some stand up better, but the strongest are the scariest – Tomb of the Cybermen and Pyramids of Mars remain superbly spooky, even when the sets wobble. \

The fifth album from Perth-based Catherine Traicos sees her edge away from folky prettiness into rockier territory. Indeed, the addition of a full band (as of 2011’s Gloriosa) seems to be pushing the singer-songwriter in all sorts of new directions. Single Light In The Dark is a gutsy, raucous affair, with the usually restrained Traicos belting out the chorus. There’s a playfulness on show, with the sublime Share Your Heart evoking both a smoky beat-poet bar and a bluesy spiritual. Sunshine is part country, part Mogwai-style post-rock; The Dream comes close to joyful pop. The slightly burnt tenderness of Traicos’ early work is in place, but fleshed out into something more substantial and impressive than ever. \ (SUPPLIED)

Last Monday, 25th November was White Ribbon Day, which is held around Australia to increase awareness and to encourage the community to speak out about violence against women. There is a urgent need to address the problem of violence against women given recent data which shows that one in three Australian women over the age of 15 report that they have experienced physical or sexual violence at some point in their lives. In 2012-2013, there were 2,009 incidents of ������������������������������������������������� ���������������������������������������� �������������������������������������������� Wayaperri House organised by the Wyndham ���������������������������������������������� ������������������������������������������� An important outcome from the event was the announcement that a number of local ambassadors had been appointed who had all pledged to raise awareness and speak out about violence against �������������������������� ������������������������������������������������� ��������������������������������������� ������������������������������������������������ Minister for Children and Childhood Development, Wendy Lovell. In her speech, Minister Lovell emphasised the importance of early learning for children and congratulated Wyndham City on the opening of the centre extensions. The project was jointly funded through $927,000 from Wyndham City and $300,000 from the ���������������������������������������������� more kindergarten places to cater for Wyndham’s ������������������ ��������������

H

aving fun splashing around in a pool or at the beach in summer is important to kids, but for parents it’s all about keeping their little ones safer around water. Swim Australia, the national authority on swim schools for learning-to-swim and water safety, provides handy tips through its SwimSAFER program and its four “layers of protection”. They are: ■ Constant supervision – performed by a responsible adult. All non-swimmers and children under five must be supervised and within arm’s reach. ■ Barriers – pool fences and gates need to be regularly inspected, maintained and meet

government requirements. Objects and potential climbing apparatus (pot plants, chairs) need to be removed. ■ Swimming and safety skills – practising such skills provides added protection but shouldn’t substitute for adequate supervision and barriers. ■ An emergency action plan – check pool and other waterways first if a child is missing. Ensure your resuscitation skills are up to date. And permanently display at least one resuscitation or CPR chart in the pool area. \

T

here’s one thing you can say about the little Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG, and that is it’s a lot of fun to drive. Also, it goes, as they say in the suburbs in less delicate terms, like sand off a shovel. And it handles like it looks, offering an exciting, sporty driving experience. The A 45’s four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine packs quite a punch, boosted by a twin-scroll turbocharger that, Mercedes says, provides a more spontaneous build-up of charge pressure. It develops 265 kilowatts, with a torque peak of 450 Newton metres at 6000 revs, giving rise to claims it’s the most powerful four-cylinder in series production. It’s also fast, topping out at 270km/h (electronically limited – and probably just as well). It can cover the zero to 100km/h sprint in 4.6 seconds, although some lead-footers reportedly have recorded 4.1 seconds. With that sort of grunt under the bonnet, it’s too tempting not use it. And when you do, this little red bullet lets out an exciting, throaty howl from its twin AMG performance exhaust system. You tend to put your foot down just to hear it. While Mercedes’ official fuel figures are recorded as a frugal 6.9 litres per 100 kilometres, if you want to have some fun in this exotic little car, you can expect to see the fuel nudging 14L/100km. But that’s the price you pay to play. To get 6.9L/100km, you’d have to put a little old man in slippers at the wheel. The A 45 is a sporty four-door. It was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show last year, labelled as the smallest Mercedes tuned by the company’s performance arm. It is also the first AMG car with a four-cylinder engine and, like all the AMGs, the engine is assembled by hand. It’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic sports transmission. Paddles behind the steering wheel let you drive the car as a manual, if that’s your thing. Flick the left paddle to kick the seven-speeder down a notch and the back end will emit that wonderful growl. Plant the foot from standstill in auto, though, and while the car will take off like a wildcat in pursuit of its prey, it tends to jerk a tad, leaving you with the impression that it just has too many gears to choose from. But get it moving and it launches

like the proverbial rocket. The paddles, however, do provide extremely quick shifts. There’s also plenty of safety gear, such as seven airbags, and vented, cross-drilled and grooved disc brakes front and rear. You only have to look at the big red brake calipers inside those 19-inch AMG multispoke alloys to know the car can stop on a pinhead. It also has an AMG aerodynamics package, four-wheel ABS and traction and stability control and AMG sports suspension, including what’s called Curve Dynamic Assist, which gives the car its precise cornering ability. The cockpit comes with red-stitched and red-piped black leather, red-ringed chrome air vents and body-hugging AMG Performance seats. Even the AMG badges in the chrome strips under the doors light up at night. The A 45 AMG has most of the features of its bigger brothers, such as satnav and a reversing camera, panoramic electric sunroof and heated electric front seats with three-stage memory and xenon headlights. In normal driving it uses front-wheel-drive for optimum efficiency, but put the foot down and the variable AMG 4Matic all-wheel-drive system kicks in and splits torque 50-50 between front and rear axles. It was inevitable that Mercedes would eventually join the hot-hatch brigade. I can remember all the excitement after the launch 20 years ago of the Subaru Impreza WRX, the original “pocket rocket”. From memory they were quickly sold out. I also remember someone in Melbourne flying to Perth and paying about $60,000 just to get his hands on one. The price at the time was $40,000-$45,000. These two cars come from different playing fields but, just for comparison, while at $75,000 the A 45 AMG sounds expensive, when compared with $60,000 paid for a WRX 20 years ago, you’d have to say the A 45 AMG is cheap. And you get a lot more bang for your bucks. \ kevinnorbury@theweeklyreview.com.au

Werribee has defeated Preston-Reservoir to make it three wins on the trot in Bowls Victoria division 1. The Bees were unusually slow starters under lights at Chirnside Park on Friday, but once they took the lead they were never headed. “They took off in front of us early and we slowly pegged them back over the course of the night,” Bees skip Snowy Barker said. “We just played more consistent towards the end.” Three of the four rinks were neck and neck all night. Barker’s rink of Ross Mayne, Dave Kelly and Nick Alderson broke the match open with a 28-shot triumph. “Our blokes were just too consistent all night as a collective,” Barker said. “We were close for a couple of ends and then we got on top of them from the fifth or sixth end and stayed well in front and got further ahead.” The Bees claimed three of the four rinks. Rob Panton finished up by five shots, while Peter Ware had a nailbiting two-shot win. Mick O’Neil went down by five. The Bees are hitting their straps nearing the mid-point of the season. They will reserve judgment on their season to date until after they play Bundoora on the road on Saturday when they will have played all teams once. Meanwhile, Friday night bowls was considered a resounding success for the Bees. The seed was sown by Preston-Reservoir, who

Point Cook has further enhanced its reputation as the team to beat in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association west B1. The Warriors extended their lead at the top of the table with a 109-run dismantling of Footscray ANA at Saltwater Reserve on Saturday. ANA (61) got bogged down by some brilliant bowling from Troy Semmens (3-10), David Hicks (3-17) and Bryan Munce (3-17). The Warriors powered to 4-170 from their allotted 40 overs with openers Daryl Groves (79 not out) and Stephen Luedi (50) taking them past the target. Wyndhamvale copped a five-wicket loss to Sunshine United at Selwyn Park. The Falcons made 8-135 courtesy of a half-century to opener Stuart Crowe (53). They were well and truly in the box seat with United in trouble at 4-26, but the middle order rescued the innings with Daniel Norris (59 not out) proving the match winner. Seabrook made it three wins from four outings in a hard-fought win over Kingsville Baptists at Angliss Reserve. The Brookers made 6-121 in 25 rain-reduced overs and the Baptists managed 7-89 in reply. \ LJ

PAIR’S PAIR OF DUCKS reveal TIGER DEPTH Cricket

Tim O’Brien and Shaun Dean combined for 1366 runs for Werribee in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association last summer. They finished in the top five – O’Brien second on the aggregate list with 739 runs at 73.9 and Dean fifth with 627 runs at 48.2 – and were critical in the run to the grand final. On Saturday, the Tigers proved in a nail-biting two-wicket win over Mt Waverley that it doesn’t have an unhealthy reliance on the star pair. Both O’Brien and Dean returned to the pavilion with ducks to their names, but the Tigers still found a way to secure their fifth successive win. “We’ve been struggling in the top order,” Dean said. “They’re getting a little bit of a hit down the order and saving our backsides.”

kimweri ready for title bid Boxing

At first he was dubbed the Lion Boy then he evolved into the Lion Man. Now, is Omari Kimweri about to become the Lion King? Kimweri, who lives in Deer Park, will get his career-defining shot at a world title on Saturday night. The 31-year-old, trained by Dave Hegarty and Andrew Woodall at the Tarneit Boxing Gym, wants to be the king of the jungle in the WBC’s minimum-weight division. Kimweri, weighing in around 47 kilograms, will step into the ring against hometown hero Xiong Zhai Zhong in Maguan, China, in a bid to bring the title belt back to our shores. “This is it; there’s no bigger prize,” Hegarty told the Weekly. “This is the pinnacle of our sport. “The WBC rang the other day and said they’d sold 30,000 tickets. I’m not sure if that’s true , but I don’t care. They could’ve sold 150,000. We have a job to do and we won’t let that over-awe us. We’ll see that Omar wins the world title. We’ll stay focused on that and if he does, we’ll get out of the place real quick.” Kimweri made headlines in 2006 when he fled the Commonwealth Games village in Melbourne to seek asylum after arriving to represent Tanzania in boxing. He was granted Australian citizenship in 2010, something he cherishes every day. “He’s a real good, down-to-earth kid and he loves this country,” Hegarty says. “When he fought for the Australian title, he came out with an Aussie bandana and an Aussie flag draped on him. “It meant the world to him to be an Australian professional champion; he certainly appreciates what he’s got here.” To the folk at his home club, Kimweri is more than just a talented boxer. His enthusiasm for life is infectious. His

dedication to get better rubs off on others and his willingness to devote time to the younger members is appreciated. “He works with all the kids and they love him,” Hegarty says. Only a world title could make Kimweri’s star shine any brighter. The Australian and oriental champion is primed for an assault on the biggest title in his division. Hegarty says he has the skills and the

insatiable appetite to do it. “I’m really confident this kid is going to win this title. He’ll fight to the death, he’ll let nothing get in his way for this and we’re going to bring it back. “This kid wants it more than anything. He’s better skilled, he’s harder and he’s a very powerful boy. Omar will come back a world champion.” \ LANCE JENKINSON

CENTRALS’ bowlers keep up the pace VTCA

It was back to the Werribee Centrals of old in a 55-run scorching of Craigieburn in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association north A1 on Saturday. The Centurions’ premiership success last summer, albeit in a division lower, was built on their ability to build pressure with the ball and in the field. The bowlers recaptured their mojo at DS Aitken Reserve on Saturday, routing the Eagles for just 68. “We just wanted to focus on our goal and that was to do the basics right for the day, whether that was in the field ... whether it be the bowlers. We were just asking for discipline,” Centurions opening batsman Chris Duffin said. “You couldn’t fault any of the bowlers.” It is widely known that the Centurions’ new-ball attack is one of the most lethal combinations in the division. Aaron Edrich made the most of the fresh cherry to remove both opening batsmen. He finished with 2-14 off nine overs. Young speedster Sam Crea didn’t give an inch either with 0-9 off seven. “They did a really good job,” Duffin said. “It was about bowling outside off-stump, bowling well to their field and using the wicket, which helped bowling with the new ball.” In years past, the Centurions might have turned to slower change bowlers to complete the mission, but the addition of Justin Davies has changed that. Davies kept the batsmen on their toes en route to 3-7 off eight overs. “He really complements our opening bowlers,” Duffin said. “We’ve got two really good, fast bowlers to open up and then to have him continue that trend is important. “The opposition realise we’ve got Sam and Aaron, so they probably would’ve been thinking they’d be able to score freely once they came off. “But then Justin came on and played his part.” Two run-outs and a Dean Giarrusso wicket later and the Centurions had a minuscule target of 69 for victory. Even after a collapse that saw them lose 4-8 in the middle of the innings, the Centurions comfortably passed the target on the back of 32 to Giarrusso and 27 to Blair Hemmingson. Davies completed a brilliant game with 22 not out. The Centurions have an important clash with Altona Roosters away for the next two Saturdays. Both sides are 2-2 and eager to push into the top four. “It can really set up our season if we win this one,” Duffin said. \ LJ » More VTCA, page 42 NOVEMBER 27, 2013 \ WYNDHAM WEEKLY 43

afl gig thrills new roo From the Apple Isle to Arden Street, Werribee Tigers star Ben Brown took the long route to realising his AFL dream. The big man with the big, curly hair spoke to Lance Jenkinson Two years of hard work and sacrifice has secured Ben Brown his AFL dream after the 20-year-old was drafted to North Melbourne. The ruckman-forward was questioned back home in Tasmania as to whether it was the right choice to give up a walk-up start with Glenorchy in the TFL to move into what some felt could be a bit-part role for the Werribee Tigers in the VFL. But Brown arrived last year with one motto: “The sky’s the limit.” Never for a second did he doubt that he could lock down a starting position with the Tigers. By season’s end, Brown, one of the first picked for Scott West’s team, would become one of the most sought-after versatile ‘bigs’ in the league. “There were some people saying I shouldn’t have moved to Werribee and, ‘You’re going to play Tassie league football for the rest of your life’,” Brown said. “I set myself goals and I expect to achieve them.” Brown had the sporting world at his feet as a teenager, representing the Tassie Mariners in the TAC Cup and playing basketball for his state at under-18 and -20 levels. Then came the biggest setback of his career – a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Brown sustained the injury in a training drill with Jimmy Webster, a good mate who was recruited by St Kilda in the 2011 draft. It was a massive setback for Brown at a critical juncture in his career, but he never gave up hope of one day making it to the big time. His football comeback was aided by Tassie Mariners strength and conditioning coach High flyer: Werribee forward Ben Brown climbs over Box Hill defender Kyle Cheney during this year’s VFL finals.

One-of-a-kind grandmothers

■ kitchens ■ bathrooms ■ laundries ■ renovations ■ designs

W

hether she’s Grandma, Nan, Nana, Ooma , Nonna or Jiddah, our grandmothers are very special ladies deserving of extra thoughtfulness when it comes to choosing a Christmas present. Not only has she raised the mother or father who has become the parent you love, she is also the depository of family history, the one whose only ‘job’ is to love unconditionally. So how do you choose a gift that shows how much you value her role in your life? The answer is complex because each grandmother is different. One may spend her time tending her garden or knitting booties for newborns; another may travel or have a yen to do something adventurous before old age slows her down. Grandmothers are notoriously easy to please, gift-wise. The quality that will always touch her the most in a gift is thoughtfulness and showing you know who she is. So if you go for something safe, such as chocolates, make sure they are her favourite; if it’s flowers, choose her favourite kind and colour.

Here are five creative ideas: 1. A family photo calendar with birthdays and other special days already marked. 2. A sunrise sky balloon trip for both of you. 3. A book on her favourite country, animal, hobby or famous person. 4. A voucher offering to wash her car (more often than once), or to mow her lawn. 5. An invitation to dine with just you (at your expense) at her favourite restaurant.

Gruff or genial: Granddads are great

G

randfathers are a special breed with as many different ways as there are families. They’ll usually say “Don’t buy me anything for Christmas. Keep your money. I don’t need anything.” But, secretly, they love to be fussed over so choosing the right gift can be a bit of a challenge, unless it’s the boring old sox ‘n’ jox combo. Here are five ideas to get you started: 1. A voucher promising to wash his car four times a year, with dates included. 2. Tickets to the cinema to see a movie just with you. 3.

What is a grandpa? “Grandfathers are for loving and fixing things. Grandfathers are just antique little boys. They listen to childish talk, find time to take us for a walk. Grandpa is another name for love. A perfect grandfather loves us, spoils us...then sends us home. A grandfather’s wisdom and love are beyond measure They are a special treasure. “ [Anon]
