SUPPORT LOCAL If there was ever a time to support local, now is that time. Story by Rich Evans

Many of you would have seen the video of Kellie and local businesses. In a time where we also face an uncertain future it may seem like a bold move, however it is motivated by the same basic principle we always operate under - what can we do to help. Whilst we still could last week we ate out at our favourite places in both Lithgow and Bathurst, knowing full well they were next on the chopping block. We have

This is the and engage with them. Virtual art shows are happening around the world, musicians are performing from their own lounge rooms (well done to Momentum Duo Dave and Lauren for a great gig the other night) and even large range of options to support small local business through these times, and at the same time we are starting to transform our own business a little ahead of schedule. We were on a digital transformation journey already this year, but now we are bringing everything forward as quickly as we can.

headspace LITHGOW SERVICES STILL AVAILABLE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE COVID-19 is creating feelings of uncertainty within the community and headspace Lithgow is reminding young people we are here to support their mental health.

In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, headspace Lithgow have begun delivering services to young people via phone and online rather than in-person.   This step has been taken to ensure the safety of young people, family and friends, and staff working in the centre. This means very little disruption to service delivery, as young people and families can still access support with minimal risk of transmission of COVID-19. We will continue to offer individual services to young people with delivery through phone and online options such as video conferencing which

COLES DONATES EXTRA $1 MILLION A WEEK IN FOOD FOR VULNERABLE AUSTRALIANS Food donations to support SecondBite and Foodbank in wake of Coronavirus

In these current exceptional community circumstances, Coles has today announced it will donate extra food and groceries to the retail value of $1 million a week* to help Australians who are facing hardship as a result of the Coronavirus.   The food donations will be directed to food relief organisations, Foodbank and SecondBite, which will in turn distribute the food to up to 3800 community food programs across Australia.   Coles Group CEO Steven Cain said the decision to increase Coles’ food donations was in response to increasing demand for food relief from vulnerable

enables us to support the young person face-to-face. Supporting young people in challenging times is crucial and headspace Lithgow is dedicated to ensuring that those who need it can access help. For young people experiencing feelings of stress related to COVID-19, headspace has developed information which might be helpful to manage any changes to daily life as a result of containment measures. Please visit the headspace website for more information: https://headspace.org.au/youngpeople/how-to-cope-with-stress-related-to-covid-19/ headspace Lithgow encourages young people, family and friends, and staff to also seek advice from a local community general practice or from government advice lines services such as healthdirect/coronavirus. headspace Lithgow is supported by funding from Wentworth Healthcare, Provider of the Nepean Blue Mountains Primary Health Network through the Australian Government’s PHN Program.

Australians. “For many years, we have donated surplus edible food from our supermarkets and distribution centres but sadly we are hearing that an increasing number of people in our community are facing particularly tough times as a flow-on effect of the Coronavirus,” he said.  “We hope that by donating an additional $1 million in food each week to SecondBite and Foodbank, we can help get food and essentials to people who are especially vulnerable at this unprecedented time.”  “It goes to the heart of our strategy which is to feed all Australians and help them lead healthier, happier lives.”   The announcement comes just days after Coles introduced a dedicated Community Hour** at its supermarkets to improve access to essential groceries for the elderly and disadvantaged during the period of unprecedented demand.   SecondBite CEO Jim Mullan welcomed the additional food donations. “A key issue for us at the moment is keeping up with the growing demand. Coles currently donates surplus food from around 780 supermarkets and these additional donations from its distribution centres will help us to reach an increasing number of people in need,” he said.  Foodbank CEO Brianna Casey said the combination of drought, bushfires and Coronavirus had placed unprecedented pressure on the charity’s food supplies. “We are already assisting 815,000 people a month, but the need for food relief is skyrocketing at a time when donations of essential food and groceries are reducing. The additional donations from Coles will help ensure Foodbank can bolster its supplies to ensure vulnerable Australians can continue to be assisted,” she said.

A regional community support fund of $1 billion has been set up to support regions and communities most affected by the coronavirus.

This includes communities heavily reliant on industries such as tourism, agriculture and education.

FLEXIBILITY IN INSOLVENCY & BANKRUPTCY LAWS •

The Government is looking to increase the threshhold for a creditor to initiate an insolvency or bankruptcy claim from $2000 to $20,000, while giving 6 months, rather than 21 days to respond.

The deeming rates for pensionershave been reduced by a further quarter of a per cent.

A lot of people have contacted me about the issue of supermarket raiders in their local areas. There is evidence at our ports and post-offices that organised syndicates have been raiding supermarkets and sending grocery items in large quantities overseas. After relaying our local experiences to the Home Affairs Minister I am pleased that it will be an offence under the Biosecurity Act to send supplies in large quantities overseas, and that items will be seized and redistributed.

GOOD NEWS ON LITHGOW MRI SCANNER!

The NSW Health Minister’s office has confirmed to me in writing that the Lithgow Hospital MRI project will start from mid-2020! This is what they said: "Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District is planning to start the site project from mid-2020". It looks like the NSW Heath bureaucrats have been forced to backtrack on their plans to shelve the MRI project.

The toll on people’s lives and their livelihoods is simply heartbreaking. While it would be easy to slip into a fog of despair, we can’t let that happen. Too many generations of Australians have sacrificed too much to let our country and all the ideals, hopes and promise that it represents,

As difficult and devastating as this time may become, we must get through it. And we will. From sporting fields to the battle fields, Australians never give up and we never give in. Our country communities are the heartland of this nation. We’re famed for our common sense and the fact that we stick together through the good times - but most particularly through the bad. Let’s look out for each other and be kind to each other. Let’s show generosity of spirit. And let’s stay calm in the face of this threat.

WOMEN THE TOP PERFORMERS IN IT SECURITY MASTER’S DEGREES

In the male-dominated cyber security industry, two women have been awarded prizes as the top performing 2019 graduates of the Charles Sturt University-IT Masters postgraduate cyber security courses.

Two women have been awarded as the top performing 2019 graduates of Charles Sturt University-IT Masters postgraduate cyber security courses. IT Masters Pty Ltd is an industry-based education company which has partnered with Charles Sturt to develop a unique series of online master’s qualifications. CEO of IT Masters Pty Ltd Mr Martin Hale said, “A report from the Australian Cyber Security Growth Network projects that over the next decade the Australian cyber security industry could triple in size, with revenues rising to $6 billion by 2026, from just over $2 billion today. “According to my colleague Professor Tanveer Zia, project leader of Charles Sturt University’s Girls in Cyber Security Advancing program, only 11 per cent of those working in the cyber security industry are women. “With only 9.5 per cent of all IT Masters students enrolled in cyber security or information systems security courses being female, a promising trend is appearing with this number increasing six per cent to 15.5 per cent over the last 12 months.” Each year IT Masters awards prizes to the graduates

with the highest grade point averages (GPAs), and the 2019 Master of Cyber Security award winner is Ms Elise Hickman, and Ms Natasha Steele won the Master of Information Systems Security award. Ms Steele also won the PETA Power Memorial Prize for the graduating female student with the highest GPA in any of the CSU IT Masters courses. “With experts suggesting that women mentors might help entice and retain female talent in the sector, these two women, along with future Charles Sturt IT Masters graduates, might well be in high demand,” Mr Hale said. 2019 Master of Cyber Security awardee Ms Hickman said, “I’m excited and proud to achieve the award as there were so many knowledgeable people studying the course. “The online learning format allows for class collaboration much like traditional study, and class cohorts and lecturers helped drive my desire to learn more about cyber security, which helped me to achieve great results and surpass my expectations.” Ms Hickman advises potential cyber security students, “Don’t be put off if you’re not the most technical person. “Understanding the concepts and how to apply them is critical; technical skills can be built upon for each subject and there is a wealth of information at your fingertips.” Asked about her achievement, Ms Steele said, “Going into my studies, I experienced a lot of self-doubt, so winning the award came as a surprise and a real boost to my confidence in my own abilities. “If you are considering studying information security,

AGRICULTURE JOBS ESSENTIAL TO AUSTRALIA

Agriculture Minister David Littleproud says Australia’s food production and supply chain will not be affected by coronavirus shutdowns. “The Commonwealth is guaranteeing food production and supply as we deal with the virus’s spread,” Minister Littleproud said. “I am in constant dialogue with farming groups, the States, supermarkets and my department to make sure there’s food on the table for all Australians. “As far as the Commonwealth is concerned, food production and supply is an essential service. “Feeding our nation is an essential service. “That means State-imposed border shutdowns will not affect agricultural supply chains. “The trucks carrying food and produce will get through to the shops.  “Feed, hay, fertilizer and other agriculture products will continue being delivered to farms. “We’ve got plenty of supply and the freight lanes across the country are being kept clear. “Australians can be assured that their farmers will be able to keep producing the great food they’re renowned for the world over. “This food will arrive fresh and on time at their local supermarket the same as it’s always done but they don’t need added pressure of senseless hoarding. Australians should stay calm and know Australian agriculture will be there for them. “Maintaining food production, access to workers, agricultural supply lines, transportation and logistics is absolutely critical and will not be affected by any of the measures aimed at curbing the virus’s spread.”

LITHGOW VALLEY FILM SOCIETY 16 Main Street, Lithgow Sun 29th March – 2.00pm Art Sunday Presentation – IN YOUR HANDS Mathieu ( Jules Benchetrit) who comes from an underprivileged background, is a troubled young man with a passion for piano playing. One day when he was playing the public piano at the Gare du Nord, a music professor, Pierre (Lambert Wilson) heard his playing and was most impressed with his exceptional skills. Mathieu gets into trouble with the wrong crowd who robs houses. At Pierre’s suggestion, he is sentenced to community service and has to do janitorial work at the Music academy. Mathieu is persuaded by Pierre to advance his piano playing by attending the National Conservatory of Music in Paris. It is there that he meets his stern piano tutor, La Comtesse (Kristin Scott Thomas). However, little does he know that Pierre will push him to his limits in order to reveal his hidden talents.

RIDE FOR COUNTRY KIDS RESCHEDULES TO 20 – 22 SEPTEMBER 2020 Due to the escalating coronavirus pandemic, Royal Far West has rescheduled its iconic three-day Ride from May to September 2020. While this date is locked in, the health and safety of the communities on the route, the riders, crew and staff are of paramount concern, and the situation will be regularly monitored.

The Ride route remains unchanged, with 80+ riders cycling from Dubbo to Cobar, via Narromine and Nyngan, bringing cheer and some fun to these hardhit regions, as well as financial support by staying in local accommodation, engaging local food suppliers and enjoying experiences in the towns. More than 100,000 country kids with developmental and health needs cannot access the support they need because of where they live, and Ride for Country Kids was created to directly raise funds for these children. These kids and families need support now more than ever, as many have endured relentless drought and devastating bushfires, and now face daunting uncertainty due to COVID-19. Throughout its 95-year history, Royal Far West has embraced a spirit of innovation, perseverance and

adaptiveness, and it continues to lead today, responding to the rapidly changing health and social landscape by adapting its service model to expedite telehealth services to ensure that children and their families in regional communities receive the support they need. Royal Far West’s CEO Lindsay Cane AM says, “Coronavirus may have delayed the Ride, but it hasn’t reduced the demand for our specialised services. Some of our dedicated riders have already raised significant funds, and these will be immediately put to work to directly support the developmental and mental health of these precious children in regional communities.” Support Royal Far West to give hope to country kids at www. rideforcountrykids.com.au

Developed by Beyond Blue, NewAccess offers free mental health support via telephone or video. The program can be accessed without a GP referral. Jo Symonds local NewAccess Coach, says the saturation of messaging around COVID-19 and the uncertainty about its effects on day-to-day life can lead to feelings of being anxious and overwhelmed. “It is not unusual to feel panic about abnormal situations such as the recent unprecedented bushfires and now COVID-19. We encourage anyone who a little extra support to get back on track, to pick up the phone and call us,” Ms Symonds said. NewAcccess provides up to six free sessions with a trained mental health coach. The program has a track record of helping people tackle pressure: local NewAccess services have a recovery rate of more than 80% which is almost 10% higher than that of the national average. According to Ms Symonds there are many ways to reduce the impact of negative feelings and that while it is reasonable to be concerned, there are simple steps you can take to maintain your mental health.

“It’s important to stay connected with friends and family via email, social media, and telephone. Even while practicing physical distancing, you can still feel connected and supported,” Ms Symonds said. To get in contact with the team and schedule an appointment, or for more information, visit marathonhealth.com.au/newaccess This service is funded by the Western NSW Primary Health Network (in Western NSW) and Wentworth Healthcare, provider of the Nepean Blue Mountains Primary Health Network (in Lithgow and surrounds).

WORKS SUSPENDED ON WOLGAN ROAD, WOLGAN GAP

Council wishes to advise residents that the works that have been occurring on Wolgan Road, at Wolgan Gap, have been temporarily suspended.

The works have been put on hold for approximately 1 - 2 weeks. The current works in progress are specialised, and cannot continue due to staff illness. The intermittent and temporary closure will be put back in place shortly after. The patience of affected residents is appreciated and Council advises that traffic conditions must be observed by all motorists travelling through the area.

CALL FOR LOCAL CHARITIES TO APPLY FOR GRANT FUNDING Eligibility information:

Not-for-profit and charity organisations seeking funding for local projects are encouraged to apply for a grant from Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation in the next funding round which opens 24 March.

Charitable Foundation Executive Officer, Graham Batten, is encouraging all eligible community-based notfor- profit organisations who are seeking funding for a project or initiative to make their submission before the funding round closes. “This year we are looking to fund projects that take an innovative, but local approach addressing important community issues. We know that local charities understand their community best and the Charitable Foundation wants to help those organisations make their ideas for positive change a reality.

“Our goal is to support projects that help to rewrite the future for people who are disadvantaged, marginalised or isolated and also support social opportunity in our regional communities,” Graham said. Twice a year the Charitable Foundation provides approximately $800,000 in funding for projects across regional New South Wales. “We encourage local charities to put forward their grass-roots projects that address key social issues across the Charitable Foundation’s three funding focus areas of health, youth and social outcomes. “Since 2003 we’ve provided over $20 million in funding to 472 community projects and initiatives, all in regional NSW. Each successful project is selected for its ability to make a meaningful difference to the lives of people and build healthy, safe and resilient local communities. “We’re looking forward to continuing our work with regional charities as together we help to improve social and well-being outcomes for community members in need.” Graham said. Funding submissions open 24 March and close 5 May 2020. All applications are made via the Charitable Foundation’s online portal accessed via the website.

Rebecca Walsh, Ronald McDonald House

To be eligible for funding, a group must be endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a Type 1 Deductible Gift Recipient and hold Tax Concession Charity status, be registered with the Australian Charities and Not- ForProfit Commission, and be a not-for-profit organisation which is charitable at law, and a legal entity such as an incorporate association of corporation. Groups are encouraged to review the guidance information available at www.charitablefoundation.com.au. About Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation: The Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation distributes more than $1.5 million in grants each year to facilitate charitable projects that address disadvantage in local communities throughout the Hunter, Central West, Central Coast, New England, Mid North Coast and Northern Rivers regions of NSW. Since its establishment in 2003 as a gift to the community as part of Newcastle Permanent’s 100th anniversary, the Foundation has provided more than $20.6 million to 472 community initiatives.

HELP IN HARD TIMES Please be advised that due to the current pandemic, Relationships Australia NSW will be changing the way we support our clients. For a period of time (yet to be determined) we will not be offering face-to-face appointments as of Monday 23 March.

How we will do this: Counselling appointments for individuals, will be conducted over the phone in a safe and confidential environment only. Some of the steps in our mediation process will also be able to be conducted by individuals over the phone with Family Advisers and Mediators. We regret to advise that we will not be running any of our popular groups in Term 2, but will explore their return in due time. Other services we provide such as couples and family counselling will have to be addressed in other ways. For more information, please email bathurstfrc@ransw.org.au or call our head office Client Services Team on 1300 364 277. We look forward to resuming to more function as soon as it is permittable, until then we appreciate your understanding.

BATHURST BLACK DOG RIDE Sunday 15th March was the annual Bathurst leg of the Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer. This year the run left Bathurst and headed to Europa Park Cowra for morning tea, then from Cowra to Lion’s Park in Forbes for the completion of the day. Participants were then encouraged to head into town for lunch and chat to locals about what the day was about.

Rose Hancock and Deb Russell

Bathurst had 80 bikes on the day with 16 pillions and 11 Winstons (the cute little Black Dogs that sit on our tanks/ seats and help us to start conversations). After a chilly start to the day the riding conditions were perfect with sunshine and no sign of rain. This was the 10th annual Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer, and the 7th for Bathurst, this year there were 38 rides nationwide and on the initial count, they estimate there were over 6000 participants “We didn’t go out and try and canvas raffle prizes this year as we felt that local businesses had already been hammered enough with the fundraising for the drought and bushfires, but we still had people offer support. Huge thanks to Access All Loans, The Farmer’s Arms Hotel, TLE Electrical, Dad N Dave’s Yard Maintenance,” said one of the organisers Rose Hancock.

“Even after not proactively putting our efforts into fundraising, we still managed to raise over $1500 with some still to be collected,” she continued. Funds raised will go into a gift fund where any mental health focused community group can apply for a grant for a project they would like to implement, this fund is administered by Black Dog Ride. “I would like to do a huge shout out to all participants, volunteers and businesses that have supported our efforts over the years. After being co-ordinator for the 7 years, I have decided to step down and hand over the reigns to some fresh young blood who can keep it going. There has been some interest already,” said Rose.

Paul Hutchins and Emma Simpson

Kat Clark, Bob Davidson and Nathan Davidson

If anyone would like to be a part of the organising, contact Rose on 0414 927 743 or message them on Facebook - Bathurst Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer. Next year’s ride will be on Sunday 14th March 2021.

NEW BUSINESS IN PORTLAND Portland has a new take away food offering with the Corner Take Away opening last week on the corner of Williwa and Wolgan Street.

Postponed

For more information contact Sonia on 0448 125 676

It is a tough time for any food business at the moment, however being the only take away food offering for burgers and other favourites has meant the early signs are good for proprietors Nigel & Karen Truslove. Anyone that visited the Portland Pool throughout the Pool season would know Nigel & Karen from running the canteen there and after many locals told Nigel he should consider opening a shop, he has done exactly that. They are open from 7am - 4pm Sunday - Wednesday and 7am - 6pm Thursday -Saturday. Find the Corner Takeaway on Facebook or call them on 0491 703 949

iwonder CALLS ON AUSTRALIANS LIVING THROUGH THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC TO SHARE THEIR STORIES FOR A NEW USER-GENERATED DOCUMENTARY SERIES ‘CORONAVIRUS & ME’: all content submitted at www.iwonder.com/ submit will be considered for inclusion and streaming at iwonder.com Submitted by Lee Robson, iwonder

Every person in Australia has been touched by the frightening speed and severity of the Coronavirus pandemic. As cases climb into the thousands, people all over the country, along with Australians stranded overseas, are feeling the effects on everyday life - from supermarket shortages and sporting cancellations, to state-wide lockdowns and changed working conditions with the spectre of worse still to come. Our feeds and news streams are overflowing with Coronavirus related updates, as we turn to the Government, social networking sites and businesses for information, advice and support. But what about ordinary people dealing with the upheaval in similar and different ways all across the country and overseas? What can we learn from each other as we each find our own way through this crisis? And how important is it to keep an intimate record of our experiences for future generations to reflect on and learn from? From today, documentary streaming platform iwonder. com is asking all Australians, either at home or abroad, to record their day-to-day personal experiences of life affected by Coronavirus and submit their footage to www. iwonder.com/submit. From stories of loss and hardship, self-isolation, or a

struggle to get home, through to life-affirming tales of support, friendship, charity and optimism, or even simply a video diary of trying to buy household essentials as supermarkets buckle under the strain of panic-buying, each person’s unique story will be considered for inclusion as part of the ongoing documentary, ‘Coronavirus & Me’. Submissions will be edited together into short documentaries that will evolve in real-time to reveal how society is adapting to the crisis, and to track our eventual path to recovery. Video submissions should be a maximum of 10 minutes in length, can be shot on any kind of camera but must be in 16 x 9 landscape format (if it’s on a phone, holding it sideways, not upright) and can be silent or have people speaking, but must include no music. For full details and terms & conditions visit www.iwonder.com/UGC-terms. The contributor of any video, or part thereof, selected for inclusion in the series will be informed and mentioned in the episode’s credits, and a donation to the Australian Red Cross will be made in their name to help further the charity’s invaluable efforts in supporting communities through the COVID-19 crisis. Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis, with

the deadline for the first episode set as Monday April 6th, and release on iwonder.com following later in April. For further information, or to contact the iwonder team, visit the iwonder Facebook page.
