Copper Turn off in 3 Months As you would be aware, Willunga was among the first to receive NBN Co’s Fibre technology. This means Willunga will also be the first to have the copper network disconnected. This is going to happen on 23 May 2014, where the NBN will replace existing landline phone, ADSL internet and Telstra cable internet services. These services will be permanently switched off from 23 May 2014. This is a very important process, as it involves the migration of thousands of home and business telephone and internet services to the NBN.

The good Samaritan Jogger After the big storm a large branch dangled high above entrance to a house in Aldinga Rd. SES attended and realising it was too high for ladders tried the ‘throw bag with rope attached’ method to try and dislodge the branch. After some time the team of SES men had no luck when a jogger passed and enquired what the problem was. Upon hearing the story he said that’s easy and with one throw he succeeded in dislodging the branch and he continued jogging. ------

Light the Dark Vigils were held around the country on February 23rd in memory of Reza Berati, the 23 year old asylum seeker killed on Manus Island.

The task is to ensure no-one is left behind. To support a smooth move to the NBN for all those premises within the fibre coverage area, attached is an information flyer; effectively a ‘what is happening, and what to do.’ What you need to do The National Broadband Network is an upgrade to Australia’s existing telecommunications network. To find out how this may affect your existing landline home phone and internet: Call your preferred home phone or internet provider to discuss if your current services are affected. Your provider will do the rest including organising installation of the NBN equipment. Don’t risk being left without a landline home phone or internet, call your preferred provider today.

Rec Park News. The Sports and Social, Tennis and Netball clubs have added to the solar power installs at Rec Park to make a total of 19KW. The Onkaparinga Council has confirmed a grant towards the cost of a new slate roof for the Show Hall. The strategic plan is progressing with many clubs and other parties contributing to the consultation and questionnaire processes. Willunga held a gathering vigil at the war memorial at 8pm to honour the young Iranian man and to highlight the treatment of asylum seekers in off shore detention centres, but in Australia’s name. Attendees were invited to bring a candle, note for asylum seekers or a flower. The gathering was organised by local Moira Deslandes. People united in a show of compassion and solidarity with those who have suffered in our detention centres, asking for more compassionate asylum policies. The vigil was part of the Light the Dark campaign. https://www.getup.org.au/lightthedark -------

NEWS Update Chords at the Creek In perfect weather after the heat and rain of the previous week, keen supporters of local music gathered on the lawns at Fox Creek Wines on Sunday afternoon, 16 February. In a relaxed atmosphere, guests were treated to a musical smorgasbord, capably organised by Dave Greenslade and Pete Thornton of Wirra Creek Music. Local Indigenous musician Phil Noel played a primal welcome to country on his didgeridoo, before toetapping folk group Astro Cobalt took over the Fox Creek veranda. In a complete change of pace, Phil Noel then entertained us with his stunning jazz guitar playing. Singer and guitarist Courtney Robb

contributed a different mood again with her soulful blues tunes. Next up was alternate country group, Cat Dog Bird, who captured the audience with their upbeat songs and harmonies. But the undoubted stars of the whole show were Dan and Kyle Lizotte, of the contemporary folk/roots duo, Halfway to Forth. By the end of their set, they had everyone up on their feet and dancing – it was impossible to stay sitting down! After two encores, the crowd reluctantly left, but the musical buzz stayed in the air. A great way to celebrate Willunga’s 175th anniversary and our culture of arts and music! The Willunga175 committee thanks the musicians, Fox Creek Wines and Wirra Creek Music for their support, and also the Mount

Compass Scout Group for supplying such interesting and tasty food. Traditional Anglican Evensong Service On Sunday evening, 16 February the congregations of St Stephen’s Anglican Church, the Church of St Joseph and the Willunga Methodist Church (Uniting Church) combined to give thanks to the pioneers of the district who established these churches. The service was based on the 1662 Anglican Book of Common Prayer, which is the prayer book that would have been used by the pioneers of this district, who frequented the Anglican Church. The sung evensong which was used for the service is not commonly used these days and it very enjoyable to have the choir as part of the congregation and leading way with the singing of the hymns. It

was a wonderful way to celebrate Willunga’s history in its 175th year and to remember the pioneers of the district who suffered many hardships and ordeals to settle in Willunga.

Wayne Anthoney OAM Wayne Anthoney trained as a scientist and mathematician, graduating from

Adelaide University in 1962. He worked as a scientist for some years, writing data analysis programs for an early computer, then joined the firm of P. G. Pak Poy as a systems analyst. But his real love was the theatre and performing arts and after having played the undertaker in 'Sunday Too Far Away', the first film of the revitalised SA Film Corporation, he jumped ship to become an actor, strongly supported by his wife Meredith, who had returned to her professional work once Christie and Tom were at school.

Wayne Anthoney OAM

Pragmatically, Wayne developed a clown act as a backup in case the stage and film work did not come fast, which turned out to be the case.

He also started doing a series of performances in remote Top End communities, thanks to connections at Brown's Mart community performing arts group in Darwin. Wayne started to have concerns though, about what he was seeing in the communities, the dysfunction, lack of work, poor hygiene and seemingly directionless life while also realising that there were many strong and culturally important facets of Aborginal life in the remote bush. He was involved in the land rights movement during those years. When in early 1966 he was asked through various connections to go to work at Yulara, the tourist town near Ayers Rock, as a project manager for Nyangatjatjara Aboriginal Corporation, he jumped at the opportunity and for

the next nine years he lived there, his main project being the development of Nyangatjatjara College, an independent boarding school for the teenagers from Mutitjulu, Imanpa and Docker River communities. He was also involved in a camel catching project at Docker among other things. Wayne retired from the job at the end of 2004 to return to Adelaide and family and the precarious life of the performer, but visited the communities in late 2011, to find to his joy that the school was running well and the communities also, with health problems lessening, seemingly more work opportunities and a generally optimistic feeling in trhe air. He was enormously surprised and overwhelmed to be offered an OAM. Looking

In 1976 he went to Alice Springs with a travelling show, taking his clown paraphernalia with him. In Alice he met white people working in different ways with and for Aboriginal people and his Iife changed. He first performed a clown show in an Aboriginal kindergarten in Alice and was then asked to perform in nearby communities. The following January he, Meredith and the kids and some locals ran a holiday activity program with great success, the temperature being about forty five degrees every day. They did another one the following year and in the meantime Wayne started travelling to remote communities in Ptijantjatjara land, with his portable clown and magic show.

NEWS back on his life he reflects upon the way that his work as a performer led him to the bush and his beloved Central Australia, to his concerns about the injustices forced upon indigenous people and the fact that he was given an opportunity to help the cause. -------

Sustainability in Willunga Inspiration for Autumn Food Gardening

We all know that there is nothing like harvesting and eating / sharing our own home grown food. It’s the freshest, the tastiest and environ-mentally friendliest and the healthiest. You pick it when you need it, you pick it when it’s ripe, there are no chemicals, no food miles, no exploitation, no wasted oil and no pollution created. The long range weather forecast says that the heat of summer is over, so it’s definitely time to get organised. The Southern Onkaparinga

Permaculture Group in conjunction with the Willunga Environment Centre has created a Thursday morning weekly program to inspire and support you in your food growing endeavours. We commence on March 6 with three weeks of truly inspiring films, each followed by tea, coffee and discussion. Continuing on from these will be workshops on Permaculture, Willunga No Dig Winter Kitchen Gardens and Composting. The films are all free of charge with a $2 donation to cover tea and coffee. With the workshops, participants will individually decide what they think they are worth and what they can afford to pay. We will accept money, LETs or working hours in an attempt to make the program accessible to everyone. All sessions are kid friendly and bookings are essential for the workshops which will be held at a variety of locations. Program Thursday March 6, 10.15–

12.30pm: “The real dirt on farmer John” .An entertaining tale capturing what it means to be different in rural America” Thursday March 13, 10.1512.30pm: “The power or community” “How Cuba survived peak oil” Thursday March 20, 10.1512.30pm “Selection of short films” Thursday March 27, 9.301pm Introduction to Permaculture workshop Thursday April 3, 9.3012.30pm Willunga no dig winter kitchen gardens workshop. Go home and start your own food garden. Thursday April 10 9.30-12.30 Sourcing organic materials & composting workshop Free help in the garden Fleurieu Gardeners are a group of locals who have been working together in each other’s gardens since 2012. Once the heat of summer is over we congergate in different member’s gardens every second Friday. Some bring special skills, some bring tools, all bring energy, commitment and a love of gardening and very quickly, what needs to be done is done. We start whenever we arrive after school drop off in the morning and we leave when we have had enough, but not before we’ve shared morning tea provided by our host and a bit of the latest goss. The gardeners treat morning tea as a gift and the host accepts the gardening work as a gift and as indicated by the increasing numbers, everyone is loving it. You might think what’s the point? The work you do in others gardens is only balanced by the work others do in yours. Not so. · Social interaction distracts from the sometime monotony of gardening. · We get to experience lots of cool gardens

spend more time in our garden. · The large amount of work that gets done in one hit in our garden is also very motivational. · We sometimes include specialty workshops as part of our regular program from which we all learn. · It’s just such a relaxing, productive way to spend a morning We are always looking for new members and are also keen to establish other groups wherever there are people who enjoy gardening with others. Clothing swap – Saturday March 22 Riding on the back of our successful weekly “food swap” and inaugural “bikes & sporting gear swap”, is our first ever “clothing swap” Donate obsolete clothing and find something else you would like to wear. It’s left to your own sense of fairness as to how much you should collect. There is no money or direct bartering, just give and take. The “clothing swap” to be held adjacent to the Green Room on High St Willunga from 8-12noon, is the ideal opportunity to rid yourself of clothes that have been clogging up your wardrobe, unworn for the last year. As your children grow out of their clothes, swap them for bigger ones. No need to book, just bring them all on the day. If you don’t have any clothes to contribute but you would like to look for some for your kids or yourself, why not contribute a homemade cake to share instead.

NEWS here early in the th celebrations of the 175 anniversary of Willunga to give thanks to God for the pioneers of this district, who came as clergy and members of the early congregations to establish the churches of St Stephen’s Anglican Church, the Church of St Joseph and the Willunga Methodist Church.

THANKSGIVING SERVICE WILLUNGA 175TH ANNIVERSARY About 80 people attended the thanksgiving service as part of the 175th anniversary celebrations for the early clergy and congregations in the Willunga district Fr Paul delivered the following homily. It is good that we come

In the research I have done for this sermon or homily, I am amazed at the hardship and ordeals of many of the early settlers to this district. They worked hard to establish their homes, farms and have an existence. In going through the Anglican funeral records for the 1850’s, there were very few people who lived past the age of 60. There

are children who died early in life, as early as six weeks. The average age appears to be around 40. The service tonight based on the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, instituted by the Church of England appears appropriate for tonight. It is the prayer book that would have been used by the pioneers of this district, who frequented the Anglican Church. The old Anglican Church was located at the Willunga cemetery, until this church was built in 1884. The sung evensong which we are using tonight is in itself part of an era which is not commonly used anymore. I understand it is still used at St Peter’s Anglican Cathedral on a Sunday night. Even as a boy, which wasn’t all that long ago, I used to go with my parents to Evensong at St Paul’s, Port Pirie using this form of service, and again at Newcastle Cathedral in the 1980’s, so I am somewhat familiar with the service. You may think otherwise when I sing the chants during the prayers! I have been amazed at the efforts of the early clergy and the early settlers in this district. In 1848, the first Anglican priest arrived in Willunga. His parish stretched to Port Elliott. He was one of five priests who arrived from England with the first Bishop of Adelaide, Bishop Short. He arrived and set up a tent in Willunga. I recall reading of a family who lived at Myponga who travelled most of a Saturday in a

horse and buggy to Willunga, so that their child could be baptised. After the baptism, they spent the rest of the day travelling back. In the early days, the Parish Priest of the three denominations in Willunga travelled long distances by horseback and on foot. According to the history of St Joseph’s Catholic Church, the dedication of the priests was reflected in the steadfast support of the parishioners. One family in the 1890’s willed their substantial property and wealth for the benefit of the priests and parish. The families’ children had died one by one when they reached adulthood. The legacy of this financial contribution continues in the Parish today. It is interesting to note that in 1847, the Wesleyan Church of South Australia was divided into three circuits: Adelaide, Willunga and Burra. The circuit from Willunga went as far as Happy Valley, Meadows and Yankalilla. In Willunga, there were four Methodist churches built from 1847 until 1905. It appears by all accounts that the early settlers were of a deeply religious character. They lived in a harsh environment. The bible readings including the psalm for tonight are it appears harsh too, about sin and are difficult to fathom given its language. They are written tonight in a way the early settlers would have had to discern. They

8


NEWS are readings set for Evensong or Evening Prayer tonight in the Church Lectionary for the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Uniting and Lutheran Churches. The first part of the Old Testament reading from Isaiah tonight describes the separation of God and the people. Isaiah begins this passage with a reply to the implied lament of the community of Israel, that God is remote, that he does not intervene to save or respond to its prayers. The prophets of Israel from the beginning had asserted that Israel had broken the covenant, but years of exile and darkness, this separation from God and Israel through sin had separated them. In the covenant relationship, Israel became a holy people through obedience and holiness of life. But now, the prophet says, Israel’s sins have separated her from God. However in the final part of this passage, Isaiah laments for the community which then leads to a confession. There is an acknowledgement that God’s inability to help does not cause Israel’s troubles, but the wicked minds of the people. The people of Israel look for light but they walk in darkness. The psalm follows a similar theme and likewise the passage from the letter of Paul to the Romans. Paul describes the actions of people’s life and conduct due to a long and continuing series of wars and murders. The ruin and

misery of those described in the book of Romans is the same as those described in Isaiah’s time. The basic reason is because they have no fear of God before their eyes. Here, all people stand condemned, because they cannot attain moral and spiritual perfection. However there is hope. There is a righteousness from God. He does come to the rescue. This love of God is infinite and incomprehensible. There is this righteousness for all who believe in Jesus Christ. It makes no difference whether a person is rich or poor, young or old, male or female, educated or uneducated. All can obtain it through faith in Jesus Christ.

May we give thanks tonight for the early settlers of this area and for their faith in God. We as a community of Willunga must continue with their legacy, living with the faith they had. Unfortunately many people now do not have that faith in God, they are walking blindly as we heard in our readings tonight. The materialistic world has taken its toll on people’s spiritual lives. Let us be faithful in making God known to others and reviving the church in Willunga. We also tonight renew our determination to be faithful to God who is forever faithful and can do things for us and in us that might seem humanly impossible. In

the time of Jesus, it was thought a mulberry tree could not be possibly be rooted up and planted in the sea. Its root system was so complex. Our faith, as weak and feeble as it might seem to be, links and binds us to God for whom all things are possible. ------A Sunday School teacher began her lesson with a question, "Boys and girls, what do we know about God?" A hand shot up in the air. "He is an artist!" said the kindergarten boy. "Really? How do you know?" the teacher asked. "You know - Our Father, who does art in Heaven." -------

These are encouraging words for us and I am sure were for the early settlers of the Willunga District. They would not have had much, nothing like us today but they had faith in God, which is a very important gift. There is a product from one of the wineries in the Barossa Valley that is labelled “faith”. It was named after the leap of faith the early settlers took in establishing farms and vineyards in the region in the mid 1800’s, and faith in the vines that sustained the region’s grape growers and winemakers in succeeding generations. Although the wine we will taste tonight is not labelled faith, I am sure the vineyards which produced wine in the region was planted in the Willunga area.

Pancake day Breakfast in Willunga, 2014 This month in March there is an opportunity to indulge in a pancake breakfast for Shove Tuesday celebrations. The celebration will take place on the Sunday morning of March 9th. With a delicious selection of pancakes freshly made. Be sure to put the date on your calendar.

Traditionally, Shrove Tuesday is the last day to eat all the flour, eggs and dairy products in your kitchen before the start of Lent which is a time of abstinence and reflection in the 40 days before Easter. The European custom of making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday was one way to use up these ‘luxury’ items and over the centuries, Shrove Tuesday and pancakes became perfect partners. This each year, thousands show their support for people in need by flipping and eating pancakes at events state-wide in SA.

Why not invite a friend too.

Hundreds of groups including schools, churches, businesses and community organisations join in the fun. To register your own event contact 1800 060 543..

23rd MAY 2014 The Government is committed to the completion of the National Broadband Network (NBN) and that means copper services will be switched off on 23 May 2014 for residents and businesses in Willunga. Customers affected by the retirement of copper services in May will have recently received a letter from NBN Co confirming they have six months to act Now’s the time for these remaining customers to give us a call or come in to one of our local stores and have a chat with us so we can talk them through plans and book their connection. We encourage people to make the switch now to avoid getting stuck in the last-minute rush, which could mean ending up without a working home phone and internet service for a time.

COMMUNITY NOTICES Letters to the Editor Hi, Willunga’s 175th anniversary celebrations are off and running after a successful launch on Australia Day at the Old Courthouse. Preparations are now underway in particular for the Discover Willunga Fair we are holding on Sunday May 4th. The aim of the fair is to showcase Willunga’s features — its history, the present, and future potential. It will provide an opportunity for all the clubs, organisations, groups and businesses associated with Willunga to reach out to the wider community and showcase their wares and specialities. We are now seeking firm commitments from clubs, organisations, groups and businesses to be part of the fair. A lot of groups have indicated they would like to participate and this can now be formalised by completing the attached form and returning it to the Willunga175 committee. In addition to the displays by clubs and businesses the Fair will consist of many “novelty events” , such as Rose competition, Largest Pumpkin, Almond Cracking competition and many other events which were a feature of Almond Blossom Festivals of old. It promises to be a fun day and we hope you and your organisation can be involved. If you have any queries please feel free to contact me or any of the Willunga175 committee. Also if you know of any other groups, businesses etc that could be interested please feel free to pass this on. Regards Graham Ormsby 0402 892 425 -------

SPORTING NEWS Willunga 2014 Coaches Announced Six-in-a-Row Great Southern Football League Premiers, Willunga, are pleased to announce that Barry Pilmore has been reappointed as the “A” Grade Coach for Season 2014. The club is delighted that Barry has accepted the challenge for a twelfth year. Barry is the first person to coach Willunga “A” Grade for twelve seasons, and engineered breaking the 1950’s club record for consecutive flags when his players won their sixth Grand Final in Season 2009. Barry has managed to keep a great squad together and build in the critical areas over the years. Barry coached the SA State Country team in 2010, 2011 and 2012. His playing record is impeccable and in 2012 he was honoured by being named in the Southern Football League Team of the Century to complement his SFL Hall of Fame listing. Gary Summerton retains his position as Assistant “A” Grade coach. President Neil Lang said, “The committee had determined a strategic path to ensure that we maintained our position as one of the top sides in the League and that meant we had to look at how we coach and how we keep and develop our coaches and players to ensure they have the skills to go on at a higher level.” Barry also has additional support from his old friend Mick Irvine who came to us from the Noarlunga Shoes in 2011. Mick is assisting on the bench and has added a new dimension to the coaching staff.

Club Champion Ben Baxter has been appointed Reserves Coach. Ben is a Mail Medallist and has had a long playing career in South Australia and The Northern Territory. In the colt’s ranks, Rick Brunton will take on the Senior Colts coaching role. Rick has been around Willunga for quite a while and played his footy at Christies Beach. Scott Peek is continuing at the Junior Colts helm and Darren Austin retains control of the Under 12 players while Todd Steele stays on to look after the Under 10 squad. Off the field, Willunga Football Club is extremely happy to announce that Mile End Office Furniture continues as Major Sponsor in Season 2014. Willunga Football Club is the second oldest continuously operating Club in South Australia and has a proud family tradition. The Club plays its home games on Willunga Oval and the clubrooms are open every Thursday and Saturday night during the football season for meals with full bar facilities available. Willunga Football Club is a Level 2 Good Sports Accredited Club -------

Email: masherrah@bigpond.com ------The young checkout girl suggested to the older woman that she should bring her own shopping bags in future because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.. The woman apologised and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days." The cashier responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations." She was right. Back then, we returned milk bottles, soft drink bottles and beer bottles to the shop. The shop sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got blunt. We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every shop and office building. We walked to the shop and didn't climb into a car every time we had to go two streets. Back then, we washed the baby's nappies because we didn't have the throw-away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine. When things broke or stopped working we didn't throw them away, we repaired them. But we didn't have the green thing back in our day. -------
