From The Editor Last week’s LITHGLOW festival was an amazing event for the region and I was amazed to see how many people braved the cold to visit the locations that took part. I spent the later part of Saturday night with mu guitar plugged in and playing music in the red light bathed workshop building at The Foundations in Portland. If you visited and wondered where all the noise was coming from, that was me. Sorry. This week we welcomed a new team member to the Village Voice team, Carol Cropper has joined us in the role of graphic designer, and is a welcomed addition to the team bringing a wealth of graphic design experience with her and taking a massive load off my shoulders. We are looking forward to continuing to grow the VV team in the coming months.

FUTURE FINDERS GETTING CREATIVE BOARD GAME WITH BUSINESS GROUP @ LITHGOW On Thursday 3 May, LIBRARY

forty students from Lithgow High School were treated to a day of learning about entrepreneurship with Monica Davidson.

Monica is a film-maker, business woman and business mentor based in Sydney who works with creatives to understand what it means to turn passion and talent into a business. Monica was engaged for the Future Finders program to work with Lithgow High School students to cover a number of entrepreneurship concepts, such as getting started, ideation, pitching a business idea, and SWOT analysis. Like previous sessions run as part of the Future Finders program, participants really enjoyed the handson aspect of the workshop; as well as hearing first-hand experience of the ups, downs and challenges of being an entrepreneur. During the ideation session students were encouraged to work in a ‘shark tank’ scenario; where they were required to develop, refine and define their business idea to their peers. Participants worked in teams and pitched their ideas to each other, with the most successful pitch being awarded to an entertainment venture. Two more sessions will be delivered for young people through the Future Finders program; as well as one for the general public through the NSW Business Connect Roadshow in July. Anyone who is a creative business

LITHGOW BLAST FURNACE OFFICIALLY OPENED

MEETING WITH DEFENCE MINISTER Last week in Parliament I met with Defence Minister Marise Payne. I was there pushing the case for a new HMAS Lithgow and also to discuss the Federal Government’s new Defence Export Strategy. The Defence Export Strategy is aimed at filling gaps in the supply chain particularly with respect to smaller and medium sized firms. While it’s not directly targeted at larger players like Thales, I have invited the Minister to conduct some defence industry workshops in the region (including at Lithgow) and to personally visit. She has accepted! We look forward to welcoming her to Lithgow very soon.

LITHGOW CATHOLIC DEBUTANTE BALL

Saturday night marked the official opening of Australia’s newest major tourist attraction. I’m talking of course of Lithgow’s iconic Blast Furnace which has undergone a major transformation. $1.5 million of State and Federal Government money has gone towards the project and it was terrific to see so many Lithgow City Councillors there and State Member for Bathurst Paul Toole as well. Paul and I worked very closely on this exciting new development. This has also been a great example of the three levels of government working together. Congratulations Lithgow City Council! A shout out also to Councillor Maree Statham who was an early champion of this project. Lithgow’s Blast Furnace plays to Lithgow’s strength, namely its industrial past and its vital role in helping to shape Australia. Before Lithgow started producing steel, Australia was reliant on steel imports. With a 21 per cent increase in tourism for the Central West last year, Lithgow is beautifully placed to capitalise on the visitors who come to our region. Lithgow is the gateway to the golden west and this unique tourist attraction is going to draw people from all over Australia and the world. It was a spectacular opening on Saturday night which was a part of the equally amazing Lithglow Festival. Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to bring the Blast Furnace back to life, and for supporting the opening. As it was a little bit chilly on Saturday night it’s a shame we couldn’t have fired up the old Blast Furnace to help keep us warmer! It was a top night that will be long remembered!

The Lithgow Catholic Debutante Ball is a Lithgow institution. It’s been going now for over 80 years. It’s a fundraiser but it also marks an important milestone in the lives of young people. A huge crowd turned out for Saturday night’s ball. All of the debutantes and their partners looked immaculate and they were a credit to their families and communities. I have to say that seeing the debs and their partners nervously waiting to be introduced backstage took me back to the time when I also partnered a debutante as a Andrew with Member for Bathurst Paul Toole, Page Boys much younger man. Robert Hughan and Jack Sheather and Flowergirl Holly I learnt back then that for Simmons. the blokes the golden rule of debutante balls is that it’s all about the debs! The blokes just need to turn up, look presentable and not stuff up in any way! Besides marking an important milestone in a young person’s life, the other important thing about deb balls is that they bring communities and families together and Friday night was no exception. Congratulations to all the helpers and the organising committee including President Bernadette Hicks, Secretary Pauline Cox, Treasurer Jennifer Cordina and Matron of Honour Kathy Potts. It was another great night for Lithgow!

NEW PROGRAM LAUNCHES TO DRIVE GIRL POWER ACROSS NSW An Australian-first initiative that will empower over 3,000 young women has touched down in New South Wales for the first time.

Country to Canberra is driving over 15,000km from May to August to run its award-winning ‘Project Empower’ workshops to promote diversity and gender equality across rural Australia. CEO Hannah Wandel says the not-for-profit organisation is now spending three weeks in New South Wales to run the free, innovative program in towns like Tamworth, Hay, Broken Hill and Coonabarabran. “Incredibly, we will be reaching around 1,000 young women across New South Wales alone. “Project Empower builds self-esteem, educates about diversity and provides leadership training. We want to ensure no matter where you’re from or what gender you are; you have the tools to succeed. “We’re really looking forward to discussing important issues with local youth, while creating a documentary to show off the beauty of rural Australia”. Ms Wandel said the response to Project Empower has been breathtaking. “We received 90 expressions of interest from New South Wales' communities asking us to come and run Project Empower in their region. It shows that people are crying out for programs like this in the bush.” In New South Wales alone, Project Empower is visiting high schools in Moruya, Braidwood, Coolamon, Yass, Boorowa, Crookwell, Scone, Singleton, Coonabarabran, Tamworth, Walcha, Kempsey, Nambucca Heads, Woolgoolga, Broken Hill, Hillston, Griffith, Hay, Barham, Tocumwal and Cowora. Country to Canberra has a history of success, having run its prestigious Power Trip program since 2014 to connect rural girls with the likes of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and top CEOs. It won Holden’s first-ever ‘What Drives You’ grant to kickstart Project Empower. The roadtrip officially kicked off with a launch event at Parliament House in Canberra on 10 May. It will travel through every state and territory to over 90 towns, including 20 remote communities, finishing in August. To follow the interactive map, documentaries and to see where the roadtrip is travelling, see www. countrytocanberra.com.au/projectempower.

CONSERVATION GRANTS FOR LANDHOLDERS IN BATHURST ELECTORATE Member for Bathurst Paul Toole announced that applications are open for $2 million in grants to support conservation by private landholders in NSW.

Mr Toole said the Conservation Partner Grants, offered through the Biodiversity Conservation Trust (BCT) are intended to help private landholders maintain the ecological values of their property. “Funding is available for things like fencing, weed control, introduced pest animal control, supplementary planting and habitat restoration,” Mr Toole said. “This program is part of the NSW Government’s commitment through the BCT to support and encourage landholders to conserve and manage biodiversity on private land.” Minister for the Environment, Gabrielle Upton said

the opening of this program for applications followed the NSW Government’s unprecedented investment of $240 million over five years, and $70 million per year ongoing, in private land conservation as part of the land management and biodiversity conservation reforms. “The not-for-profit Biodiversity Conservation Trust will offer $37 million for programs in 2018,” Ms Upton said. “This will deliver major benefits to the environment and support landholders to carry out important conservation management on their properties.” Landholders with a conservation agreement or wildlife refuge agreement with the BCT that do not receive annual conservation management payments are eligible to apply for grants. Landholders participating in the Community Environment Network’s Land for Wildlife program or Humane Society International’s Wildlife Land Trust program are also eligible to apply. Details of the programs are available at the BCT website www.bct.nsw.gov.au, by email at info@bct.nsw.gov.au or by phone on 1300 992 688.

LITHGLOW 2018 SUCCESS Last weekend’s rebooted LITHGLOW festival to celebrate the opening of the recently completed Blast Furnace refurbishment was a fantastic success for Lithgow City Council and all involved in seeing the project happen.

Crowds were much bigger than anticipated with many thousands of people braving t he chilly temperatures to take in the light show spectacular. The markets at Blast Furnace Park were a hit with locals with a huge variety of cuisines on offer, however many businesses throughout the town reported busier than normal Saturday night trade as many visitors sought refuge from the cold. The original idea of LithGlow was to showcase the amazing industrial heritage in the Lithgow area and to show the industrial locations in a different light and this was achieved with the overwhelming success of stakeholder sites including Small Arms Factory Museum, Energy Australia Wallerawang Power Station, The Foundations, State Mine Heritage Park, Gang Gang Gallery, St Johns Church and Eskbank House.

Pictured: Ray Christenson provided a historical recount of the Blast Furnace as part of the opening proceedings

Visitors came from all over the Central West including Bathurst, Orange, Mudgee, Oberon as well as the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury and Penrith areas and as far away as Port Stephens and Newcastle. For a first year concept there were an overwhelming amount of positives to come out of LithGlow and plans are already in place to expand upon LithGlow in 2019.

Housekeeping Positions in Aged Care

END-OF-LIFE COACH

This is a big one. Already life expectancy in some countries is ticking over to 86, and a lot of forecasts in the not-to-distant future say one in three people could live to over 100. How are we going to support that? It has massive implications not only in terms of their health, but also their finances. It’s not so much, ‘You’re going to die now’, like palliative care. It’s about saying, ‘OK, you’ve reached 80’, and looking at how we’re going to get you through the next 30 years not only physically but maintain your mobility, mental faculties and independence. It’s also about, how can we financially fund all this? It’s going to cost you money, and I’m not confident the Australian government is going to have the pension as we know it around in 20 years. Twenty per cent more people are going to be on the pension, more than ever before — where is that money going to come from? WHOLENESS MENTOR There are some emerging trends that have been going on, people feeling disenchanted with the world, and mental illness is one indicator of that. More and more people are living alone and working from home, so what that means is we’ve got the ‘Nigel no friends’ out there who might be freelancing online, but having no real communication or interaction with people in the community. Yes, they’ve got social networks, but are feeling a little disconnected from society. The wholeness mentor

NEWS Refugee Week @ Lithgow Library Refugee Week 2018 from 17-23 June is a time when Australia celebrates the contribution of those who have come to Australia as refugees and people seeking asylum. “Like the rest of our country, Lithgow has benefitted and grown from the contributions of refugees and people seeking asylum coming and making a new home here in our community,” said Lithgow Mayor Stephen Lesslie. “Refugee Week is an opportunity to learn more about the stories of our refugee community and to understand the lives and struggles and joy of some of our newest Australians”. Throughout Refugee Week, in the community space at Lithgow Library, there will be a screening of a series of rolling film clips from the Red Cross and Amnesty International highlighting issues refugees face. This film will be playing on a loop all week so you can drop in to the Library and watch all or part of it at a time that suits you. On Wednesday 20 June, World Refugee Day, there will be an information session presented by the Red Cross called “What’s the real situation faced by people seeking asylum?” This session will be at Lithgow Library from 2.00pm. Topics covered include: who are people seeking asylum; what situations do they face; and what does Australia have to do with it? Come, join the conversation and participate in an engaging workshop. There will also be an art exhibition during the month of June that has been organised by the local LASAR action group (Lithgow Asylum seeker and refugee Support Group). These events are all free at Lithgow Library – no bookings are required, everyone is welcome to attend.

RURAL FAMILIES GAIN ACCESS TO CHILDHOOD BEHAVIOURAL SUPPORT For the first time, parents living in regional and remote NSW can gain access to vital early childhood behavioural support through an online help program, with UNSW researchers leading the push for permanent services. Parents in regional and rural areas may soon have access to specialised support services for severe behavioural problems in young children, with a trial of a government funded online toddler clinic underway across NSW. UNSW Sydney’s Dr Jane Kohlhoff, who is working with parenting service Karitane, is running an Australian-first parent training program via the internet that will give access to specialist mental health therapy for families in remote areas. Clinical psychologists will use a live video link to coach parents as they play with their children, then give support based on the interactions and behaviour they have witnessed. The play-based program, known as Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), is an extension of Karitane’s Toddler Clinic, a service that launched more than 10 years ago to fulfil the demand from families in Sydney’s metropolitan areas seeking help for toddlers with aggressive behaviour, persistent tantrums, hyperactivity, defiance and separation anxiety. Almost 2500 families have been referred to Karitane’s Toddler Clinics since 2005. “This is the first time that parents who don’t have easy access to specialist help in their community can receive live video-based coaching in parenting strategies while the parent and child are playing,” says Dr Kohlhoff, from UNSW Medicine’s School of Psychiatry. PCIT is an evidence-based method of treating consistent and disruptive behaviour in children aged 2 to 4, says Dr Kohlhoff. It is shown to be crucial in improving symptoms of maternal depression and stress by boosting parents’ confidence and ability. The PCIT therapy program provides up to 6 to 12 sessions over a three month period, with clinicians

using specialised Bluetooth headset technology and live video, similar to Skype, to deliver active treatment sessions. Clinicians follow the same principles as when working with families in-person at the Toddler Clinic, where they coach the parent through a one-way mirror while the parent and child play. The aim of PCIT is to improve the child’s behaviour by strengthening the parent-child relationship and teaching positive limit-setting strategies. Helping to mitigate behaviour problems early is key in improving family dynamics, preventing chronic problems emerging later in life, says Dr Kohlhoff. “The whole program in based on the knowledge that children need warmth and sensitivity, combined with positive discipline. This type of access to specialist services is especially crucial for parents who are geographically isolated in rural towns or farms. There shouldn’t be stigma for parenting help, but there often is. This program allows parents to access support from a psychologist in their home and should help ease the burden on other mental health services.” In a 2017 study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, a randomised control trial of 40 children examined the use of realtime video teleconferencing to deliver behavioural therapy to children aged 3 to 5 in their homes. Up to 70% of children treated with internet-based PCIT had improvement scores of 1 (very much improved) or 2 (much improved). About half of the children in the study no longer met the diagnostic criteria for disruptive behaviour disorder. Dr Kohlhoff and her team intend to treat up to 50 families this year, with those already in the program showing a significant improvement in outcomes. “We’ve treated families from Armidale, Dubbo, Bega and Byron Bay, with all showing dramatic changes in the children’s behaviour, and parents reporting a reduction in disobedience, hurting parents and siblings and extreme tantrums. “Mothers are enjoying their children more, having closer relationships and seeing improvements in behaviour at pre-school.” The project intends to use improving broadband infrastructure and video technology to deliver the program in coordination with the family’s local healthcare networks and GP.

How is winter shaping up for the Australian Property Market? As winter approaches the property market is continuing to slowdown, with values falling 0.1 per cent in the month of April. By Charles Tarbey, Century 21 Australia Chairman This number is even more significant when you look solely at combined capital cities. Corelogic data shows that on an annual basis, the combined capitals recorded the first decline in dwelling values since late 2012. Darwin has seen an -7.7 per cent decrease in values over the last twelve months which is followed by Sydney at -3.3 per cent. In contrast, regional areas continue to be strong performers, with regional areas up 0.4 per cent in April and 7.7 per cent year-on-year. While the country is experiencing ‘markets within markets’, with many areas still recording strong growth numbers, a slowdown is likely underway and may be compounded when winter hits. Winter has traditionally not been an active real market for many reasons but in recent years, we have witnessed little seasonality in real estate with one season seemingly blending into the next. This situation often saw many agents busy all year round and many sellers happy to take the plunge in the cooler months.

I suspect this phenomenon will well and truly end this year with many sellers choosing not to brave the cold in the face of moderating prices but opt to showcase and sell during the typically busy spring selling season. However, those people considering selling right now might be surprised by some potential benefits of selling in winter. Here are my top three potential advantages of selling this winter: Less Competition One of the biggest challenges of selling a property is competing against rival properties in and around the market in question. This situation can often lead to price reductions and uncompleted sales. In winter this year, less listings may mean your property has a chance to really stand out. There will still be buyers around but perhaps less competition working against you. However, this shouldn’t mean you should immediately over price your property and expect that it will just sell yourself. And this is where another advantage may come into play – a focused agent. Agent Selection An environment which sees low listing levels (typical of winter) may see many agents actively compete for your business and also go the extra mile to help you attract the best price for your property. They may have a reduced client load this season which can equate to your sale having one hundred per cent of their attention. While most good agents do this already, in busier

months they may be juggling many listings at the one time. This might not be the case this winter which has the potential to benefit a vendor enormously. First Home Buyer activity is increasing If you are contemplating a sale this winter, it might be worth noting that first home buyers are becoming increasingly active in the market. ABS Data shows that the number of loans to first home buyers rose to a five-year high in November, 2017, to account for 18 per cent of total owner-occupied home borrowings. In the last quarter of 2017, NAB analysis suggested that first home buyers accounted for almost two in five sales in new housing markets and around one in three in established markets. If you intend to sell a property that may be perfect for first home buyers due to its price point, location or property type – consider marketing it as such, while working to ensure you property will be attractive to first home buyers. Consider installing modern technologies, such as Smart Home systems, and ensuring the property is safe for small children. While it is often dangerous to look to ‘time’ the market, there may be some advantages to selling this winter depending in what market you are in. A good first step would be to review your local market (including listing and sales numbers) and speak to your local Century 21 agent to help decide whether selling this winter may hold more pros than cons for your sale.

BUILDING A NEW SCHOOL SYSTEM FROM THE GROUND UP Submitted by NSW Business Chamber The NSW Government’s announcement of a comprehensive review of the NSW school curriculum should provide the reset our school system needs to ensure that our next generation of students have the skills and capabilities that will be required in the future, according to the state’s peak business organisation, the NSW Business Chamber. “With growing skill shortages and a school system that hasn’t had comprehensive reform for decades, the Government’s commitment to put the entire school curriculum under the microscope is timely,” said Western NSW Business Chamber, Vicki Seccombe. “And with NAPLAN tests commenced this week, it is a further reminder that school curriculums, teaching methods and resources must be flexible enough to ensure that all students are getting the support they need to meet expected levels of performance,” Ms Seccombe said. “Reviewing the entire curriculum means that we can identify the best and earliest opportunities to intervene and give additional support to students. It should also focus on ensuring students get access to professional careers advice and support. “Australia’s slide down international education

rankings clearly shows that our school system is failing too many young people. At the same time businesses across the state are struggling with skills shortages. “It’s also vital that we don’t forget about those who don’t plan to go to university. There is a desperate need to invest more in Vocational Education & Training to ensure we have the skilled workforce for the future, particularly in areas like construction, human services, and hospitality where we have acute skills shortages. “In 2017, the NSW Business Chamber released its Old School/New School: Transforming school education for the 21st century Report. “Developed in consultation with business and education leaders, teachers, parents and, importantly, students, Old School/New School called for a radical rethink of our approach to school education to properly prepare our kids for a satisfying career and life after school. “Our research highlighted the need for a school system that provides better support for teachers, more flexible models of learning and a greater focus on vocational education. We need a greater focus on education that provides earning or learning outcomes as well as requisite enterprise and career counselling so that they not only survive but thrive in their chosen profession,” Ms Seccombe said.

MOVIE NIGHT DECISION MAKING THAT WORKS AT PORTLAND’S US BOTH CRYSTAL THEATRE FOR In a relationship how do partners Portland’s Crystal Theatre promises a great night out this Saturday May 19.

Who doesn’t enjoy a night out the movies. And when the movie night is at Portlands iconic Crystal Theatre it’s sure to be even more special. Well this Saturday is THAT night! The feature film is Beautiful Kate, an Australian film written and directed by Rachel Ward. Australia has produced some wonderful actors…Bryan Brown, Ben Mendelsohn and Rachel Griffiths all appear in this film. But it’s the Australian landscape that completes Beautiful Kate. It’s the vibrant colours. It’s the wide-open spaces. And it’s the gorgeous backdrop of the Flinders Ranges that sets the film apart from the usual American dribble on modern film screens. And who doesn’t like a twisted tale of family reunions? Son goes home to see his father on his deathbed and relives the past. Does dad know what happened between a son and his twin sister? What made the son run away to the city? And what happened to older brother? The movie will leave you guessing to the final curtain. If you’ve seen this movie you will enjoy it again. If you haven’t seen Beautiful Kate before…don’t miss it! The program starts at 7pm with a short newsreel or film then a 15-minute intermission before the feature starts at around 7.45pm. If you would like to join the Portland Film Society Inc and enjoy monthly movies and have a great night out at the Crystal Theatre please email portlandfilmsocietyinc@ gmail.com for a membership form.

make decisions about resources - time, energy, money and so on, to make sure they are allocated in a fair and considerate way? One person may think it is fair to take time and energy to invest in personal interests. Yet the other person might be asking the question what about me? What about us and our relationship? By Suzanne Carson

A common presenting problem in couple counselling is one partner complaining that the other makes unilateral decisions to take resources out for themselves with little regard or genuine consultation. Football may be his passion and allocating every weekend to football during the season seems fine to him. But for her, he is selfish when he shows no flexibility about having drinks with the boys after the game so that they can attend a concert she has been waiting for them to see for years. She doesn’t think that he is prioritising their relationship or considering her wishes. Or, she may think it reasonable to spend money on travel and expensive clothing when he thinks some of this money could go into the mortgage repayment. The above are only examples and the content of the problems or dilemmas may not be relevant to your relationship though the challenge of how you allocate resources likely will be. Resentment can build when there isn’t genuine consultation and an openness to consider the needs and requests of the other. One may accommodate the other for years, yet if there is a real lack of respect and consideration there will be a price to pay at some point. If both partners don’t take into account the other’s reasonable request for a level of fairness where both get a say in how resources are allocated, eventually it will undermine goodwill in the relationship. If you are taking out time, energy or money for self, ask yourself questions such as; Is this fair and reasonable? Have I shown genuine consideration to my life partner around my decision making? Do they get to

follow us on facebook.com/thevillagevoicecentralwest

take out something for themselves or am I taking without considering their needs? Is there too much investment in what I want personally without investment in us and our relationship? What would I feel if my partner did the same to me? If you are accommodating what the other is taking and dwelling on it resentfully then it may be time to bring it up and ask for you both to negotiate so you are both accepting of the way decisions are made. Also, you may not even have realised that you are taking resources for yourself without consideration or consultation and your actions might be eroding your relationship. The Gottman Institute’s research around qualities in Satisfying Relationships has clearly established that the attitude of being Open to Influence by the other is key to a healthy relationship. If something is deeply important to one, the other is open to take their requests and needs into account. Remember assistance is available to you and your relationship should this article have raised concerns that you need help to work through.

WOOLWORTHS CALLS LITHGOW KIDS TO THE FRUIT AND VEG DEPARTMENT Inaugural Fresh Food Kids Fresh Fair puts the fun in fruit and veg

STUDENT COACH JOINS THE TEAM AT PORTLAND CENTRAL Portland Central School has this term welcomed Nicolette Lowe to the position of Student Coach. Ms Lowe who has 15 years experience as a social worker and 7 years experience as a teacher said the role is a fairly unique one and was a response to ensuring the needs of students are met within the school. “The focus of this role is to be focussed on the students and improve their experience throughout their school career,” said Ms Lowe. Portland Central School represents an opportunity for Ms Lowe to work with students right across the school from Kindergarten through to year 12 students. It’s a new approach to student welfare and Ms Lowe has been given scope to create what the students need rather than a framework and strict guidelines to work within. “I’m not a councillor or teacher, rather I am an advocate for the students, I am on their side,” she continued. The role of Student Coach is to work with students and give them whatever it is they need. That might be a person to talk to or it might be learning some basic cooking skills that can give them the life skills they need. Students and their parents can reach Ms Lowe at Portland Central School on (02) 6355 5233

Lithgow families are invited to experience the first ever Woolworths Fresh Food Kids Fresh Fair, to learn more about fruit and vegetables in a fun and interactive way. With almost 95% of Australian children struggling to meet their recommended intake of fruit and vegetables1, Woolworths is committed to making it easier for kids to get acquainted with their greens, and find fruit and vegetables they enjoy. Fresh Food Kids Fresh Fairs will be held at Woolworths Lithgow from 11am - 3pm on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th May, providing a fun learning experience for kids, while mum and dad do the grocery shopping. Kids will have the opportunity to explore three stalls where they can try new fruit and vegetables, learn some easy fruit dishes, explore their various textures and colours, and play veggie-inspired games. Woolworths Lithgow Store Manager, Brendan Edwards said; “We know that getting children to eat fruit and veg every day can be tricky. "Helping our kids make smart and fresh food choices is important to us, and the Woolworths Fresh Food Kids Fresh Fair is a great way to encourage children to embrace fruit and vegetables in an entertaining way.” Families can pick up a ‘Passport Booklet’ as they enter the store and then visit three stalls within the fruit and vegetable department, collecting stickers for getting involved in activities along the way. Brendan added; “It’s going to be a fun family event where the kids can really deep dive into the wonderful and colourful world of fresh fruit and vegetables. They will have something to play, learn and try as they visit each stall.” As part of Woolworths’ commitment to Fresh Food Kids, more than 18 million pieces of fruit have been given away each year as part of the Free Fruit for Kids initiative.

WHAT’S ON Event: Woolworths Fresh Food Kids Fresh Fair Where: Woolworths Lithgow When: 11am - 3pm on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th May Kids will have the opportunity to explore three stalls in store at the Woolworths Fresh Food Kids Fresh Fair where they can try new fruit and vegetables, learn some easy dishes, explore their various textures and colours, and play fruit and veggie-inspired games.

BEARS TO PLAY IN MEMORY OF A TEAM MATE

On Saturday 12 May 2018 the Lithgow Bears Rugby League Club travelled up the mountains to play the Blackheath Blackcats in the New Era Cup Competition. Submitted by Lithgow Bears

BLACKHEATH DOMINATES IN THE NEW ERA MIDWEST CUP

Last weekend’s round-four New Era Midwest Cup games resulted in wins to Blackheath, CSU and Orange Barbarians, the Blackcats leading their competitors into this Saturday’s final games of the first half of the season. Story and Photo from John Fitzgerald

Blackheath have maintained their winning sequence, dominating Lithgow Bears 60-0 at their Blackheath home

base, while CSU defeated Kandos Waratahs, and Orange Barbarians had a 12-point win over Portland Colts. In a see-sawing game at Bathurst, CSU hung on for a 20-18 victory over Kandos, both clubs guilty of missed opportunities through poor ball control. The university team utilised the windy conditions to their advantage and this was probably the only difference between the two teams. At Orange the Portland Colts were beaten by the Barbarians 30-18 in their second straight loss and in Leaguetag Blackheath, CSU Yellow and CSU Blue had wins. From this weekend’s matches the game between CSU and the Barbarians at Orange holds most interest, while the Bears host Kandos and Portland will be at home to the Blackcats.

In Rugby League, the Bears went down 60 to 0 to the top of the table Blackheath. In windy cold conditions the boys put up a good fight. At half time Blackheath was only up by about 2 tries, leaving the score 14-0. Unfortunately Blackheath were too strong for the Bears. The Workies Club and Motel Players Player award went to Ben Blanchard for his strong tackling. The crowds points went to Timmy Hughes 3 points, 2 points to Peter Lewis and 1 point to Ryan Bilby. The Zambreros Coach’s Award went to Ryan Bilby and Joel Cameron. In League Tag, the game started off pretty evenly matched until Blackheaths player (former Workies player) Kirsty Willmott used her speed and experience running the field to score the opening try (again 2 more tries later in the game). The Bears hit back with a quick pass by Emma Smith to Latia Hardie to score over the line. The Bears tried again with a small kick over the line and a chase by Ash Ifopo but was unfortunate with the ref calling for a line drop out as Blackheath appeared to touch the ball first. The half time buzzer went off with one try separating the game leaving it 12 to 4. The final score was 24-10 to Blackheath. The Workies Club and Motel Players Player for this game was Latia Hardie. Latia also received 3 points from the crowd, 2 points to Marli-jai Hydee and 1 point to Jasmine Spittles. The Zambreros Coach’s Award went to Amber Haynes. The Bears presented the awards at the Bears major sponsor the Lithgow Workies Club. The Bears would like to thank all sponsors, supporters and volunteers who have come on board this season. It is greatly appreciated. This Saturday the Bears are playing in their second home game for the season. This game is a special game that means so much to the Bears and the Kandos Waratah Players. It is the game that is played in memory of a former team mate and friend to both clubs, Nathan Boundy. The Nathan Boundy memorial game commenced in 2017 after Nathan tragically lost his battle to mental illness. A memorial shield is to be presented to the winner of the game with the Nathan Boundy Best and Fairest Player of the game picked by Nathan’s family. Last year the Bears were unfortunate loosing to Kandos in what was a close game. The Bears hope to make a come back to gain the title. Everyone is invited to attend to what is expected to be a great game of football this Saturday at Tony Luchetti Sportsground, Lithgow. League Tag will be kicking off at 1.30pm and Rugby League at 2.30pm. Hope to see you at the game to support the Bears.
