Ahoy, mateys! There has been no lack of enthusiam among the kids participating in the Hastings Yacht Club’s sail school. Now in its fourth year, participants aged 8-14 years can learn to sail in the club’s six Sparrow dinghies. It teaches sailors everything they need to compete: from what various parts of the boat are called, tacking and gybing, knot tying, weather and tides, navigational marks and everyone’s favourite – capsizing.

Bay rays out of harm’s way Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au A CAMPAIGN to save stingrays in Port Phillip Bay has made authorities act to increase protection for the animals dubbed “the puppies of the sea” by environmentalists. The Labor state government announced last week that recreational fishing rules will be tightened from 7 November to “ensure these beautiful animals are treated with respect”.

An 800-strong Project Banjo action group, led by Safety Beach resident and scuba diver PT Hirschfield, has campaigned for months for state authorities to ban the catching of rays from piers and jetties along the bay (“Cruel end for ‘puppies’ of the sea”, The News 18/4/17). The #RaysAwareness anti-cruelty campaign was triggered by the killing of a smooth ray on Rye pier on 2 April and the unfair demonisation of stingrays in the wake of the tragic

death of wildlife conservationist Steve Irwin from a freak stingray injury to the heart in 2006 off the coast of Queensland’s Port Douglas while diving at Batt Reef. Ms Hirschfield welcomed the decision by the Victorian Fisheries Authority to ban the catching of rays, skates and guitarfish, also known as “banjo sharks”, from within 400 metres of any man-made structure; ban the taking of any ray larger than 1.5 metres in width and lower the fishing

bag limit for all rays, skates and guitarfish from five to one a day. “The campaign was not about demonising fishermen in any way either — it’s all about working towards best practice,” she told The News. “In actual fact, things like the exclusion zone of 400 metres around a man-made structure is a win-win for all water users because when those animals are free to be able to do the job of being ‘vacuum cleaners of the sea’ around man-made structures that cre-

ates a healthier ecosystem to fish from, to dive in and swim in.” Ms Hirschfield acknowledged most anglers do not target rays since the sea creatures are not generally regarded as seafood in Australia but is it good to recognise the rays’ role in helping the underwater environment. “The regulations will be part of a broader campaign of education and enforcement that we hope will be a positive experience for everyone.” Continued Page 6

Junior sailors learn the ropes

Small bank profit ‘a start’ A FIRST-TIME profit of $72,231 probably won’t create great excitement among shareholders of Hastings Community Bank but it’s a start, according to chairman Vic Rodwell. The before-tax amount prompted the bank’s board at its recent meeting to declare a dividend of two cents a share, payable on 15 November. “Over the past nine years I have made several promises of dividends and better things to come,” Mr Rodwell told the meeting. “While this dividend may be seen as being small in size, it is only a beginning.

Hold the phone… Getting wet: Capsizing is all part of the junior sailors’ training drill. Picture: Supplied

THERE’S been lots of excitement on the Hastings foreshore these past few Sunday mornings … It’s being caused by participants in the yacht club’s sailing program for participants aged 8-14 years. This season, 14 young enthusiasts are learning the ropes in the club’s six Sparrow dinghies. The sailing school, now in its fourth season, runs over six weekends. It teaches sailors everything they need to compete: from what various parts of the boat are called, tacking and gybing, knot tying, weather and tides, navigational marks and everyone’s favourite – capsizing. Afterwards the participants enjoy something to eat and a debrief back at the club. Qualified sailing instructor Chelsea Edwards delivers the program with help from several other volunteers,

“Future profits cannot be guaranteed, but the two trading months of this financial year, with healthy profits, are being seen as an indication of the future with greater profits to come.” Mr Rodwell said the board’s continuing policy will be “all about balance”. “We will balance our nett income between all stakeholders – shareholders and the community – while taking into account equity in your company,” he said. “Certainly, greater dividends will form part of this policy.”

ensuring it runs smoothly. “Most of the participants are Hastings residents who join the sailing school with little or no experience, completing the program and always coming back for more,” Ms Edwards said. “The skills learned allow participants to join in our dinghy racing and crew on other boats.” Hastings Yacht Club has gained several new members through the sailing school program with close to 60 juniors coming through since it was established in 2015. This has helped increase junior membership and participation. “While sailing is a great way for the kids to socialise, it also requires them to be an active part of a team, working together within the boat, trusting each other’s skill and knowledge,” Ms Edwards said.

“They learn how the various aspects of wind and water affect the way the dinghies perform and how this impacts on their ability to sail around a course. “Sailing has many challenges, with tides, weather and wind being unpredictable, however, also it offers a sense of accomplishment which helps build self-confidence and is ideal for team building. It’s a life-long sport which can be enjoyed regardless of age, physical ability or skill level.” Club secretary Martin Jones said learning how to sail was easy, especially when all the equipment and instructors were on hand. For details on future junior sailing programs call 5979 1891 or visit the club at 1 Marine Parade, Hastings 3915.

THREE phone towers will be built at Tuerong, Tuerong West and Main Ridge West. They will offer “consistent mobile coverage to more than 200 premises that previously had poor or no mobile services”, according to innovation and digital economy minister Philip Dalidakis. The towers are among 25 to be built throughout regional Victoria providing 5000 households and businesses with new or improved mobile coverage in a partnership between Optus and the state government. “Telecommunications infrastructure is crucial for the growth, liveability and safety of regional Victorian households and businesses, and more will be connected than ever before,” Mr Dalidakis said. “Over 166 regional communities are now being connected to mobile data and calls thanks to the Victorian

Government’s new mobile towers across the state – 41 of these with Optus. “The 25 co-funded mobile towers will be constructed all over Victoria with 15 local government areas to benefit with a priority placed on bushfire prone areas.” Mr Dalidakis said the state government had invested almost $31 million in 166 new mobile towers across Victoria, connecting 20,000 premises that previously had no or poor mobile coverage. Eastern Victoria MP Daniel Mulino added: “New mobile towers on the Mornington Peninsula will improve coverage, connectivity and reliability for phone users across large areas. This is a much-needed productivity boost for towns and businesses and will also improve community safety.”

Call for Langy rail line to be part of plan of Frankston train station and its surrounds but urged Ms Allan to consider reopening a station at Langwarrin “to connect Frankston people with the jobs they deserve”. “The population of the greater Frankston region is predicted to increase by 50 per cent over the next 30 years. But job growth lags well behind. Our area has fewer than 28 local jobs per 100 residents,” Mr Harrison said at the lunch. “We need to bring more jobs into our economy, and we need to better connect our workers with jobs outside our area. Bus access to Frankston station is woeful. If you’re serious about getting people out of their cars and onto the Frankston train line, more commuter parking will be needed. “The electrification of the train line to Langwarrin will provide ample opportunities for car parking at Langwarrin. In addition, it will better connect young professionals moving to Karingal and other fast-growing suburbs in our region with jobs right up the train line.” Ms Allan said at the lunch that the Labor state government is focused on prioritising a $2 billion upgrade of the Frankston line at this stage. The level crossings information hub at the corner of Skye Rd and Farrell St opened by the Transport Minister last month was built by young people “facing barriers to education or employment” as part of a TRY Build social enterprise project helping the unemployed learn new skills.

‘Over the rainbow’ about award PENINSULA Health has got a tick of approval for its role in improving health outcomes for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community. The healthcare provider — manager of Frankston Hospital, Rosebud Hospital, The Mornington Centre and Golf Links Road Rehabilitation Centre — won the ‘Supporting LGBTI health’ category at the Victorian Public Healthcare Awards. “Being the first full public health

service in Australia to achieve the Rainbow Tick is a significant achievement,” Peninsula Health acting CEO David Anderson said. “I thank all our staff who put so much effort into this project which will dramatically improve the health and wellbeing of our LGBTI community.” Peninsula Health’s Rainbow Tick accreditation project manager Rebecca Thompson said changes made at hospitals and healthcare

centres means everyone is treated equally and individually. “The Rainbow Tick accreditation is not about changing individual beliefs or personal values, it is ensuring that everybody has equity in their healthcare and place of work,” she said. “It’s about ensuring the services we provide at Peninsula Health are delivered in ways that are non-discriminatory, GLBTI inclusive and welcoming for everybody.”

A PLEDGE by the state government to run “more trains, more often” along the Frankston line has been welcomed by a regional advocacy group but there is also a call for the rail line to be extended to Langwarrin. Victorian Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan visited Frankston late last month to officially open a drop-in information hub about the Skye Rd/ Overton Rd level crossing removals. The Transport Minister said the separation of road from rail at 13 level crossings on the Frankston line will ease congestion for commuters. “This project is not only about removing yet another dangerous and congested level crossing, but will also allow us to run more trains, more often along the Frankston line,” Ms Allan said in a statement. Ms Allan also attended a Committee for Greater Frankston lunch at the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre on the same day (Wednesday 25 October). The group hosts business lunches, open to all, with guest speakers with any money raised over and above lunch costs invested in the operations of the Committee for Greater Frankston. Committee for Greater Frankston president Fred Harrison, CEO of Ritchies Supermarkets, welcomed the Labor state government’s investment of $63 million into a redevelopment

Rays in bay protected Little hope for missing fisherman LAND and sea searches for a 78-yearold fisherman who went missing off rocks at Blairgowrie ocean beach, Sunday 29 October, were being scaled down late last week. Police and emergency service crews appear to hold little hope for Wantirna man Yik Sua Hong who was last seen fishing off rocks at one of his regular fishing spots at noon. The man’s family had joined the desperate search of beaches and

cliffs after finding his car locked and unattended in a car park. He was said to be a “keen” fisherman who frequented a fishing spot near the No. 16 access road. Sorrento SES duty officer Peter LeBoeuf said the search had been hindered by the treacherous conditions. “Unfortunately we had no success,” he said. “We could not get too close to the water because of the weather.”

Continued from Page 1 Beachgoers should not fear stingrays, Ms Hirschfield said. “I think most people who visit the people who visit the beaches already know all beautiful, how curious and how docile those animals are. “It’s really more on social media where you sometimes see people who don’t have the opportunity to encounter how great rays are who have that residual fear. “That fear has come from the passing of Steve Irwin. It kind of put rays in the same light as Steven Spielberg’s Jaws — one event has col-

launch Operation Liberty to encourage responsible fishing by anglers. Additional signage will be installed on piers around Port Phillip, Western Port and along Victoria’s coast to make fishers aware of the new rules prohibiting the catching of rays from within 400 metres of any man-made structure. The new regulations are the result of about 1200 submissions to the VFA during a public consultation process. The vast majority of submissions supported greater protection for rays, skates and guitarfish.


Red Cross lunch raises $3000 for Myanmar BALNARRING branch of the Red Cross raised nearly $3000 for the Red Cross Myanmar appeal with a lunch at Balnarring Community Hall last month. About 100 people attended the 18 October event where the food was prepared by volunteers. Chicken for the main meal was donated by Inghams while salads came from Husseys and bread from Bakers Delight, Hastings. Sales of home-made produce, and a raffle with prizes donated by members and Bunnings, Hastings, helped boost the money raised. Guest speaker Barry Wright, who grew up in Red Hill, spoke about his decade-long work in Vietnam helping train teachers of the deaf.

The task was made even more complex as the organisation he worked for was based in The Netherlands, he said. Having to training people who are not first-language English speakers added to the complexity. Branch president Jill Duboudin paid tribute to volunteers and supporters. “While it was a lot of hard work for our members it was a pleasing result,” she said. “I would like to thank all our members for their tireless work, those who contributed prizes for our raffles and the food suppliers – without their support none of this would have been possible.”

FLAT bottom, sharp or blunt nose, swallow tail with flyers and rounded rails near the shoulders, and lots of rocker. Descriptions can be misleading, but all those words are part of the vernacular of surfers when describing a surfboard. They are words that will be freely used among the crowds expected at the Vintage Surf Day at Point Leo on Sunday 12 November. It is the third vintage day at Point Leo and sees the display of boards of all shapes, sizes and ages. And every board has a story. Bob Smith, honorary historian at the Torquay Surfworld Museum and Surfing Victoria, is bringing rare and valuable memorabilia from the annual Bells Beach surfing contest, including the official contest trophy and the bell won by 1970s Australian surfer, the late Michael Peterson. Stalls on the foreshore will include old surfboards and other devices used to catch waves. There will be Kombis and woodies (surf cars) and food stalls. Peter White, formerly of Seaford but now operating Classic Malibu, at Noosa, is bringing a range of modern boards down from Queensland and will be able to compare the evolution of designs over the years. One of the boards is a copy of a five-stringer George Rice mal that he used to make under licence in the 1960s. The board is made with the green tinged heavy Volan fibreglass, more commonly used on mals and old style boards. Smith, who turned 70 this year, has surfed since 1964 and still competes regularly on longboards. He’s

He has won 23 Victorian titles and two Australian Masters Games titles, as well as two Surfing Australia Hall of Fame awards and multiple titles for the Torquay Boardriders and Surfcoast Longboarders.

Drones focus of marine safety push DRONES will be the focus of a state government push to protect marine life in Port Phillip Bay. This comes as Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning officers begin marine mammal patrols to make sure members of the public keep their distance – especially those flying drones. “We’re increasingly noticing more drones appearing on populated beaches,” DELWP wildlife officer Suriya Vij said. “While drones don’t have large motors, many marine mammals are sensitive to noise, and buzzing from their motors can distress them. “There’s also the potential for amateur operators to unintentionally strike the animals. “Though it may be tempting to fly a drone close to these animals for a photo, our message is simple – don’t.” The officers are asking beach goers to behave responsibly so animals aren’t harmed or stressed in their natural environment. Aircraft, including drones, are not allowed to fly within 500 vertical metres or within a 500 metre radius of whales under the Wildlife Marine Mammals Regulations 2009. But drones are becoming a problem. “With the increasing accessibility and use of small and large drones, we’re seeing more of these being flown over marine mammals,” Australian Marine Mammal Foundation director and researcher Dr Kate Charlton-Rob said. The issue has become “so prevalent” that the foundation plans to investigate the extent drones are

impacting on dolphins in Port Phillip Bay and in the Gippsland Lakes. “Breaches of regulations caused by drones or boats can cause undue stress to these animals [affecting] behaviours like feeding, resting, mother-calf bonding and mating,” Dr Charlton-Rob said. Boats must stay 100 metres from dolphins, except if approached. Beach goers can allow the dolphins to approach them, but must leave them alone otherwise. Jet skis must stay 300 metres away from dolphins, and, when walking or swimming, members of the public must stay 30 metres from a seal on land, and five metres from seals on structures such as Chinaman’s Hat in the bay.

Birds, a satirist’s ‘natural’ quarry Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au

Still contributing: A calendar featuring photographs of birds taken by the late John Clarke is being sold to raise money for ABC Friends National and the Trust for Nature. Picture: Yanni

JOHN Clarke made a name for himself as a stalker of politicians and hypocrites. He managed to pour scorn with a twinkle in his eye and a half smile, leaving his target little choice but to respond in the same way. Sometimes his barbed comments were so sharp his victim would be impaled before he or she had a chance to realise the space they now occupied. But Clarke, who died Sunday 9 April this year, also enjoyed a sometimes-solitary pastime that also involved a great deal of subterfuge and stalking. The cutting comedian photographed birds. He had a special soft spot for the birds that frequented the mangroves, mud and sand banks of Western Port, a sensitive ecosystem that Clarke tried to protect at every opportunity (“Defender of the bay dies while hiking in the hills” The News 11/4/17). His prize was to capture a memorable image, one that in some way gave the observer an insight into the bird. His public side - most notably in sketches over the past 25 years with his on-screen foil and long time friend Bryan Dawe that satirised politicians and the pompous - was also designed to leave a lasting image, but it would be one that could be referenced and gauged against the future actions of a public figure. It is interesting to note the relevance of the weekly Clarke & Dawe “interviews” (now being re-screened by ABC TV), confirming the epigram of French author Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr (1808-1890) “the more things change, the more they stay the same”. Clarke, 68, owned a house at Phillip Island and was a founding member of Western Port

Seagrass Partnership, which lobbies for the protection and restoration of Western Port and its catchment. Images of birds taken by Clarke are now included in a calendar being released to raise money for two organisations which he backed: ABC Friends National and the Trust for Nature. “John Clarke made us all laugh with his genius wit and satire, but he wasn’t your normal comedian,” ABC Friends National spokesman Ranald Macdonald said. “He wasn’t prone to public display and overexposure, he was a deeply private person.” Mr Macdonald said Clarke’s hobby of photographing birds enabled him to “clear his ever-ranging mind” as he took shots at Phillip Island, the Mornington Peninsula ands Bass coast. “He was a natural photographer, though the photographs must have taken a great deal of time, patience, and concentration to achieve.” The calendar can be bought for $25 at abcfriends.org.au/index.php/product/2018calendar/

Scholarships help students ‘thrive’ ROSEBUD Secondary College students Campbell Robbins and Bailey Corbett are among 20 state secondary school students sharing in $100,000 in Marrung Education Scholarship Awards. Campbell, who is hoping to become a park ranger and Bailey a fashion designer, received two-year scholarships valued at $5000. The grants are going to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander government school students to “help them thrive in the final years of their secondary education”. More than 160 students have shared in over $820,000 in scholarships since 2009. Students recognised have demonstrated potential in their chosen careers, strong academic results and involvement in their Aboriginal community. The number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students completing the Victorian Certificate of Education, Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning or VET in Schools Certificate has risen over the past five years – more than doubling from 271 in 2011 to 570 in 2016. Victorian Aboriginal Education Association president Geraldine Atkinson said the scholarships had provided students with opportunities as they progress through their education. “In 2016, we had 570

Helping hand to realise their dreams: Campbell Robbins and Bailey Corbett have received two-years scholarships. Picture: Yanni

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students graduate from Year 12, and we will continue to see this number grow,” he said. Education minister James Merlino and Aboriginal Affairs minister Natalie Hutchins last week announced that applications were open for next year’s Marrung Education Scholarship Awards. “We developed the Marrung Aboriginal Education Plan 2016-2026 in partnership with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to help young Victorians succeed

in their education choices,” Mr Merlino said. “These scholarships are a key part of this plan: we want Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to realise the full benefits of our education reforms across early childhood, schools and vocational education and training.” Ms Hutchins said: “The Marrung Education Scholarships will help improve education, health and employment outcomes for Aboriginal Victorian students. It’s an important step forward that I am proud to support.”

Ansett land sale raises concerns Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

Truly Stunning Landmark Waterfront Property

THE sale of the final parcel of land held by the trustees of the late Sir Reginald Ansett estate in Mt Eliza next month is being described by the selling agents as having potential for “redevelopment and a range of uses”. That potential includes commercial uses, leisure, hospitality, healthcare, education and a clifftop dwelling, the brochure says. While the future development of the 90 Kunyung Rd site is subject to approvals, any subdivision or overuse of the 22.3-hectare site next to the Urban Growth Boundary will generate angst among those determined to preserve its Green Wedge zoning. Ernst and Young, acting for Equity Trustees which oversees the RM Ansett Trust, has organised an expressions-of-interest campaign closing on 13 December for the sale of the property which is expected to reap about $35 million. The company says the sale of the predominantly rural land would allow the proceeds to be reinvested into income-producing assets earning the trustees a higher return for their charitable works. The parcel of land is held in four separate titles. The agents say one option is for the buyer of the entire block to realign the boundaries so that the existing large parcel and three separate 500 square metre blocks could be more equitably divided into four blocks of fiveand-a-half hectares each. This would leave the Green Wedge intact, they say.

Mornington Peninsula Landholding

The Ansett Estate Mount Eliza

90 Kunyung Road, Mount Eliza, Victoria Expressions of Interest Close Wednesday 13 December 2017

Let’s go to work: Sir Reginald Ansett at his Mt Eliza property now for sale, above.

Equity Trustees managing director Mick O’Brien said: “Through the sale process we plan to release the value in the land and invest it back into the community. It is our responsibility as trustee to act according to Sir Reginald’s philanthropic intent, and to deliver the best outcome for his trust.” The block has unobstructed Port Phillip Bay views, 100 metres of beach frontage and backs onto Kunyung Rd and Albatross Avenue at the rear. The 22.3-hectare block is a separate tranche to the 11.7-hectare Gunyong Valley estate bought from the estate of the late Mrs Joan Ansett by retirement village owner Chas Jacobsen for $14.5 million in 2006. Mornington Peninsula Shire has quashed any potential residential redevelopment plans. The shire’s planning services ex-

ecutive manager David Bergin said the site could be used for a range of different uses, subject to planning permit approval, including a school, place of worship, single dwelling, caravan park, plant nursery or “a range of other similar uses”. “You could use the land for agriculture without a planning permit and a few other land uses, subject to meeting strict conditions,” he said. Mt Eliza Association for Environmental Care president Des Berry confirmed the land could not be subdivided for residential development. “It is in the Green Wedge and any prospective buyers should carefully check the legal ramifications of any possible subdivision,” he said. “We are an environment group and our aim is to protect the area’s significant native vegetation, especially

along the foreshore.” Mr Berry said his group doubted the land’s existing boundaries could be “realigned” as stated in the Ernst and Young brochure. “We would fight any redevelopment,” he said. Across Kunyung Rd, Ryman Health Care last year paid close to $40 million for the 8.9-hectare Moondah Estate. That waterfront property with a 42-room mansion built in 1888 was bought from the University of Melbourne, which still has six months left on a lease to run it as a business school. A covenant restricts the Moondah Estate’s use to aged care, education, religious or primary production. It has a historic gatehouse, servants’ quarters, conference, training, meeting and office spaces and four dining areas.

Sale ‘poses new threat to wedge’

MORNINGTON MP David Morris said the proposed sale of the Ansett land meant the Mt Eliza Green Wedge was “once again under threat”. “It is difficult to see how some of the potential uses proposed for the site could be undertaken without either a change to the Urban Growth Boundary, or a substantial redrafting of the Planning Statement and the Green Wedge Zone, or both,” he said. “I wish to place on record my total opposition, and that of the state opposition, to any change in the long-standing urban boundary south of Mt Eliza. “The boundary has been in place for decades, and it has been understood by successive generations of peninsula residents that the location is permanent. “I will not support movement of the boundary or a weakening of the Green Wedge Zone, under any circumstances.” Mr Morris said the zoning was intended, among other things, to “protect the character of open rural and scenic non-urban landscapes”. “While some of the potential uses identified may be permitted under the planning scheme, they are usually required to be undertaken with agriculture or as part of a vineyard, not as a standalone use,” he said. “The Mornington Peninsula Localised Planning Statement, introduced by the Napthine government in 2014, and still state policy, includes an objective intended to protect the peninsula’s landscape and cultural values.”

The Western Port Whisperer AFTER a long hiatus, The Whisperer is back keeping his eyes on the streets, and his ears to the wind; sounding out the most ridiculous, yet often accurate rumours travelling around the Western Port region. Speaking of travelling, The Whisperer and Mrs Whisperer are back from an overseas trip and would like to debunk a few vicious rumours doing the rounds. They can say catagorically that their travels were not funded by ratepayers. Indeed, the shire never even reponded to The Whisperer’s letter for a “fact finding mission” to be funded by the public purse. The Whisperer instead had to fund the trip with the funds obtained by writing for this newspaper. That explains the long absence as Mr and Mrs Whisperer travelled on a very slow boat. It was a worthwhile trip. And while junket better describes the boat they travelled on rather than

the entire trip, they have a sage piece of advice for the shire.... The internet is an amazing thing, and incredible information can be aquired without sending councillors and staff around the world. *** THE Whisperer has received quite a few reports about the roadworks on Loders Road, and the fact they appear to have dragged on for quite a few months. No one seems to know why these works have been delayed for so long. Considering The Whisperer recently had to pay a rates instalment, he doubts the shire is short of the lolly required. While weather is often used as an excuse (and living in Victoria, it can sometimes be a relevant excuse), the fact these works have been stagnant for a long time suggests weather is not the issue. ***

THE ever- famous Western Port rumour mill is currently in overdrive regarding the plans for the Hastings Foreshore, in particularly the area surrounding Pelican Park and the Yacht Club. The Whisperer has heard from local residents who seem to be split on the idea of opening the waterfront (currently used by the Yacht Club) to the public. However, there is a lot of general agreement plans were made without proper consultation. Unfortunately, consultation and keeping community groups in the loop is not a strong skill exhibited by the Besgrove Street Crew, who are rumoured to be stepping on a few toes. *** Much has been made of the NBN rollout, and the ongoing shortcomings of the system, which is often described to The Whisperer as slow, unreliable and with worse speeds than dial-up.

The Whisperer had to be lifted off the floor the other day, after he fell out of his armchair due to the irony of the following. A concerned local recently rang the NBN agency to report graffiti on an NBN box, only to be told that it was impossible to report via phone; the report could only be made online. The whisper is the person had rung to report the graffiti issues, because for over a fortnight, they had been unable to access the internet due to having issues connecting to the NBN. *** Are a couple of the biggest names in music coming to town? The Whisper is that the new year will see something the likes of which Hastings has never seen before. Shhh... don’t tell anybody! *** Heard any Whispers?

Jacobs and Lowe have managed Robert Dew’s investment property in Melrose Drive, Mount Martha for just over 26 years. During that time the home has been vacant for a total of 3 weeks. Needless to say when the time came to sell, Robert entrusted the sale to us. Over 40 inspections in the first week ensured an outstanding result.

HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

Stroke Rehabilitation inspires Stroke4Stroke JEREMY Naik, a radiographer at the time, was attending a cardiac conference in San Francisco in October 2015. That is when he suffered his first stroke. This is his story: I suffered my first stroke while attending a conference overseas. This happened in my sleep and when my wife woke me in the morning, I was unable to speak and did not recognize my family. I spent four days in hospital and recovered quickly. I was fit to fly back home two weeks later.When we arrived back home I felt really good and no one could believe that I had suffered a stroke Three weeks later I began slurring my speech and making no sense at all. It was then discovered that I had suffered a second stroke. This time it was much worse. I could not put two words together. It was extremely hard time for me and for my family. I was initially admitted to Peninsula Private hospital and then transferred to St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital (SJGFRH) for intense rehabilitation therapy. This is where I met my speech therapists, Georgia and Jenny. I would see them every day for two weeks. They were extremely kind and patient with me as I found it very frustrating at times. I knew what I wanted to say but the words would just not come out. My background as a radiographer enabled me to understand what they wanted to achieve with me but I could not necessarily understand

what was going on for me. This was a very emotional time for me. There were times when my wife and I would just sit and cry. Physically I have no deficits but the stroke affected my speech and my memory. I am still unable to read. Once discharged from hospital I was then an outpatient. I saw Georgia twice a week. She always gave me homework. I told her “it was harder than going to school or work”. SJGFRH Rehabilitation Physician, Dr Abbott, decided I could no longer return to work and the physiotherapist encouraged me to return to playing golf or to go to the gym. Returning to golf gave me a purpose. A purpose to get up and interact with the other golfers. As a keen golfer, I wanted to combine my personal experience with golf to help other stroke survivors. I want to encourage other stroke survivors and their families to accept their challenges and to keep moving forward. Like golf, my faith was also my saving grace. In my early years, I never went to church. I always joked that I did not go to such “rough places”. Five years ago, I started attending mass with my wife every Sunday this was the beginning of my faith journey. We never questioned “why us” as we knew that this was God’s plan, not just for me but for our family as well. God saw a way to bring my faith and life journeys together. And so, Stroke4Stroke was born - Stroke4Stroke is a nonprofit

Illegal log carting results in fine Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE following cases were disposed of at the Frankston Court of Petty Sessions on Monday last, before Mr Cohen, P.M, and Messrs Williams, Oates, Grant and Mc Lean. McGrath was charged with having neglected to send his child to school the required number of days and was fined 2s. M. Parker for a similar offence was fined 5s. A. E. Ryan was fined 4s in each case for non-vaccination of two children. John Knight was charged by John. E. Jones (shire secretary) with carting pine logs over roads in the centre Riding on dates within the time during which pine log carting was prohibited by the Shire. The defendant pleaded guilty to three charges and was fined 23s 6d on the first two and 29s for the third. A number of persons were fined in sums varying from 1s to 5s for omitting to have their names placed on the electors’ roll. *** NEWS has been received that Captain Claude P. Russell, of the Indian Frontier Mounted Police, has been awarded the Victoria Cross for conspicuous bravery in France. Captain Russell, who had at the outbreak of the present war already gained four medals for service in previous campaigns in India and South Africa, volunteered for service in France when war was declared.

He is now in hospital, severely wounded. *** MR S. S. Gault will hold a special horse sale at his Somerville yard on Monday next when a good yard of all description of horses will be yarded. *** ON Thursday next the elections for representatives in the State Parliament will take place throughout Victoria. In the Mornington electorate Mr Downward (the old member) is opposed by Mr R. M. Anderson, the selected Liberal candidate. The latter gentleman has spoken at the principal places throughout the electorate, and created a very favorable impression. It is generally thought that he will get good support on polling day. *** A RUG, made and presented to the Red Cross Society by Mrs Hague, is or view in the window of Mr Guumes. This beautiful piece of work, whichtook six months to make, is to be raffled shortly. *** MR and Mrs McSweeney and family desire to express their heartfelt thanks to their many friends of Frankston for kindness shown to them while their son Bert was so very ill, especially to Dr Maxwell for his unremitting care and attention.

*** MR Downward addressed the electors in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Friday night. The Candidate said this was the most important election ever held in Victoria. Owing to its financial position the State was not far from financial blizzard. This State was not alone in the ordeal. All the States had a difficult row owing to the outcome of federation. The States were now indebted to the Federal Government for £20,000,000, and had agreed to pay this back at the end of the present year. It was absolutely impossible to do so. *** THERE was a good attendance at the Red Cross social at Tyabb last Saturday night and a very nice evening was spent. Mr Phillip Mair as M.C. kept the dances going and splendid music was supplied for same by Messrs Gibson Chalwell and Mr Baker junr of Somerville who took a turn at the piano when not dancing and played excellent music (he can come again if he likes.) *** ON November 30th the Miniature Picture Campaign in aid of St. Vincents Hospital, Melbourne will cease. This Campaign was inaugurated in order to raise £25,000 which is urgently needed by the hospital. It is an appeal for help for those who cannot help themselves. Although this campaign has been

Commemoration service at ‘The Bays’ By Peter McCullough ON Saturday 28 October a special commemoration service was held at “The Bays” Aged Care , formerly the Hastings and District Bush Nursing Hospital. This was prompted by the impending demolition of the original hospital buildings and removal of the adjoining house, which had been used in the past as consulting rooms for specialists, to make way for redevelopment of the site. Stage one is expected to be completed by mid 2019 at an estimated cost approaching $20 million. It will contain 60 beds plus various services such as the kitchen and the dialysis unit. On completion of Stage one the residents will be moved to the new facility, there will be further demolition, and Stage two will see the provision of a further 60 beds. The Hastings and District Bush Nursing Hospital. As far back as 1912 there was a recommendation that Hastings and Bittern should establish a cottage hospital but nothing came of it. The arrival of Dr. Haywood in Hastings in 1928 gave new life to the concept: a public meeting was called, there was considerable support, and on 1 October, 1929 vacant land on the corner of Coolstore Road and Victoria Street was purchased from John and Francesca Incigneri for 110 pounds. Mrs Harriet Gold established the Ladies Auxiliary and fund raising was quickly under way. Events then took place at almost frightening speed. Tenders were called with Glen McComb of Frankston being successful with one thousand and seventy-five pounds. On 17 July, 1930 the Hastings and District Bush Nursing Hospital was officially opened by Lord Somers, Governor of Victoria. It

As it was: Hastings Bush Nursing Hospital, circa 1940.

was a wooden building which housed five beds for patients, a sitting room, and a bedroom for the sole member of nursing staff. By the end of 1930 the hospital had handled seven maternity cases including a set of twins! Hastings brought the number of Bush Nursing hospitals in Victoria up to 25; the King George V Bush Nursing Hospital in Mornington was number 45 when it opened in 1937. In 1936 the first operating room was opened at Hastings, funded by Flinders Naval Depot (now HMAS Cerberus). Further additions took place and then in 1971 Sir Rohan Delacombe, Governor of Victoria, opened extensions comprising administration offices, kitchen, outpatient rooms and five single bed wards. A further five bed extension was opened in 1976 which

increased the total to 27 beds, and a nursing home annexe of 14 beds in 1978. Another 16 beds were added in 1988 and in 1992 a renal dialysis unit was opened. In 1995 a million dollar hostel for the aged was added to the complex. At this point services offered by the hospital were maternity, surgical and medical, radiology, pathology, physiotherapy, pharmacy and dietary. 1996 saw a downgrading of facilities with the loss of maternity and acute medical. The following year the hospital amalgamated with Mornington and “The Bays” came into being. Later that year, petitions of protest from across Western Port notwithstanding, the hospital in Hastings was closed. In 2003 The Bays Aged Care was officially named “The Fred Bayne Centre” in honour of Fred Bayne, life

member and former member of the Hastings Hospital Board and Chairman of “The Bays Hospital.” The Service of Commemoration. Janice Danaher OAM, whose family has had a long involvement with the hospital, was a very capable MC. She provided some historical information and this was supplemented by Shirley Davies of the Hastings-Western Port Historical Society. Shirley also gave a prayer of thanks for the service provided to the community by the hospital. Robert Haywood, grandson of Dr. Haywood, provided memories of his grandfather and several other residents spoke fondly of their past association with the facility. Allan Boston (Chief Executive Officer of The Bays Healthcare Group), Adrian Wischer

(Chairmen of the Board of Directors) and Erina Rewi (General Manager, Aged Care) also provided comments which covered past achievements and the promise of future developments. The commemoration concluded with “Memories in Pictures” compiled by Fred Smith, while the James Gang provided musical entertainment. Amongst the 140 who attended the service was 100 year old Merle Chapman who was present at the opening of the hospital in 1930 and who was later a member of the Ladies Auxiliary. During the course of the afternoon several speakers paid tribute to the work of the “Pink Ladies”, a volunteer service which began in 1971 with 40 members who had to pay an annual membership fee of 30 cents! They worked around the wards of the hospital, brightening up the lives of many patients, taking around library books, arranging flowers, operating the kiosk, and doing shopping for patients. Since its inception numerous Pink Ladies have given many years of service with three completing over 40 years: Lois Carter (47 years), Pat Benton and Ruth Gibson (both 42 years). As well as services to patients, the Pink Ladies have also been involved in fund raising with cake stalls, raffles, coffee mornings and mannequin parades. Funds raised have been used to purchase items which would make the lives of the patients/residents more comfortable. To promote their activities the Pink Ladies entered a float in the Hastings Day Parade for many years and a number of trophies were won. Although there was much sadness when it was decided to close the hospital, the Pink Ladies expressed the desire to continue their work and still do today, promoting The Bays Aged Care service wherever they go.


Dr. Arthur Haywood WHEN Arthur Haywood was four years old his parents made their home on Sandstone Island. Young Arthur attended school in Hastings, walking across from the island at low tide. He sometimes tied cane basket lids to his feet to prevent sinking in the mud. When he was older he would row to the Hastings jetty. After spending his teenage years fishing, farming and doing other local work, he went to Scotch College and then the University of Melbourne where he worked his way through medical school. In 1928, at the age of 33, Arthur Haywood returned to Hastings as a GP. He and Harriet Gold were the prime movers for the hospital which was opened in July 1930. Dr. Haywood conducted his practice two doors from the hospital in Victoria Street. He dispensed medicines and also developed his own xrays in a dark room on the back verandah. When he started his “patch” extended from Somerville to Flinders and he endeared himself to the local population through his willingness to answer a call at all hours. One of his earliest matrons, Ninian Phillips, recollected, “He was a brilliant surgeon and, having been a fisherman, he could tie off the most intricate knotsa good thing for a surgeon.” While his medical shills were held in high regard, the same could not be said for his performance behind the wheel. Locals were inclined to refuse a lift when offered; not only was his driving somewhat erratic but there was also a fair chance that the vacant space would have to be shared with a sheep, goat or pig. Janice Danaher, the MC, recalled how her father, when Dr. Haywood arrived at their property, would say “Just leave the car, Doc. I will turn it around for you.” Dr. John Williams joined Dr. Haywood in his practice in 1946 and this allowed him more time for his farming activities. He had established

“Windrest Jersey Stud” in Bittern in the 1930’s, but he also bred Border Leicester and Dorset sheep and later Wessex Saddleback pigs. All won championship ribbons at various shows. Robert Haywood recounted how one of his grandfather’s pigs won the grand champion trophy at the Royal Melbourne Show around 1950. Displaying a non-too-subtle sense of humour the doctor had

named this pig “Miss Australia.”Next day the daily papers carried a photograph of this handsome beast, complete with its name. The organisers of the Miss Australia Quest, which was a big thing in those days, were quick to express their displeasure. Matron Phillips once wrote, “There were always animals in Doc’s life. At one time Sister Caulfield complained that she could not put the washing out whenever Doc brought his bulls in for tubercular testing and tied them to the clothesline.” Local residents were always fascinated spectators when Doctor Haywood was attempting to convince his cattle that they should swim from Jack’s Beach to Sandstone Island. His partner, Dr. Williams, once commented on his incredible energy. However... “He was always doing so much and had so much on his mind that he could be forgetful. I remember one time he took his wife Myrtle and daughter Heather into The Alfred with him and then forgot and came home without them. They had to get the train home.” Reference: Hastings-People and Places. Volume 111.

Miss Australia

Harriet Gold - Benefactor of the Bush Nursing Hospital HARRIET Gold arrived in Victoria in 1888 with her first husband, George Smith, and their two children. After the death of George in 1895 she met Frank Gold who was very wealthy but something of a mystery man; in an earlier life in England he was known as John Daniel Wilkinson. His wealth came from the barbed-wire and nail manufacturing business he had in Richmond. Frank’s invention of the roof nail, made by a machine that could make the nail (shank and head) from one solid piece of metal, proved popular and much in demand. Harriet and Frank were married in Melbourne in 1921 and they lived in Hastings at Bungunyah homestead. It was located on 87 acres bounded by Watts, Hodgins and Coolstore Roads and Victoria Street. The house, which still stands in Pinewood Drive, was located at the end of a long driveway bordered by large white marble statues of well endowed, but rather scantily clad, ladies. One lady who attended the commemoration service recalled

a visit to Bungunyah with her mother; she and her brothers were instructed to look straight ahead as they walked up the driveway! Well known for her charity work, Harriet took an active interest in the development of the hospital in Hastings. She was the first President of the Hastings and District Bush Nursing Hospital Auxiliary and the first Life Governor. Most of the committee meetings were held at Bungunyah and she hosted a variety of social occasions such as card and garden parties and other fund raising events. Harriet herself was particularly generous, always donating the equivalent amount of money to that raised at any function. She also established the Younger Set dances that were held each month and the annual hospital balls. Her contribution was recognizes on the occasion of the hospital’s first birthday, as indicated on the front page of the Frankston

and Somerville Standard. (In 1931 the headline “Hastings Goes Gay” would not have been a cause for concern!) Harriet Gold was a larger-thanlife figure. In 1923 Frank imported a Silver Ghost Rolls Royce and it was a familiar, if slightly incongruous, sight to see Harriet being chauffeur-driven around Hastings in the Rolls. She died at Bungunyah in 1948 aged 92. Reference: Hastings-People and Places. Volume 111. Western Port News 7 November 2017

Kangas show they’re real deal PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully LANGWARRIN has announced itself as a true contender for the MPCA Provincial title after beating Peninsula Old Boys on Saturday. Defending 9/216 going into the second day of the clash at Lloyd Park, the Kangas celebrated early when the dangerous Dylan O’Malley was the first man to go without a run being scored by the Old Boys. Old Boys’ skipper Wade Pelzer and Glen Prendergast dug-in and got the score past 50 before things started to

turn pair-shaped for the ladder leaders. Matt Prosser, who has been in superb form with the bat but not so much with the ball this season for the Kangas, regained his leg-spin mojo and took ownership of the Old Boys’ batting line-up, snatching 5/36 from 15.1 overs. The Old Boys went from being 1/56 to 6/79. Prosser was well supported by Matt Campbell, who helped himself to 2/22 while Langy skipper Jake Prosser picked-up 2/3 from eight overs. Mornington cruised past Pearce-

dale, winning by more than 130 runs. Pearcedale resumed on Saturday at 0/12, however, had a lot of work to do to get to the 4/298 that Mornington posted on day one of the match. Brad Trotter (73) and Chris Dew (25) got the Panthers away to a reasonable start and there was no momentum lost when Will Kennedy (34) came to the crease at three. The Dales cruised past 100 with just one wicket lost. However, the Dogs were able to regain the ascendancy, snaring 3/2 to have the Panthers in a sport of trouble at 4/115.

It was pretty much all over at that point, although they did scramble to 167. Michael Heib was superb with five wickets for the Doggies while Matt Foon started the ball rolling with three early wickets. Baxter pulled-off a sensational win against Sorrento, successfully defending its ordinary total of 133. The Sharks were well and truly in the box seat at the beginning of the second day, resuming at 1/47, less than 90 runs to get with 80 overs and nine wickets in hand. Enter Baxter boom recruit Yohan

Maddege, who tore through the Sorrento batting line-up and finished with match-winning figures of 6/61 from 30 overs. Roommate Chamika Sattambi snared 3/19 from 10 overs. Whilst Maddege did the damage at the top of the order, Sattambi cleanedup the tale, rolling Sorrento for 127. Mt Eliza had little trouble running down Crib Point, who had made just 123. Resuming at 1/8, Mt Eliza cruised to 4/125 from 66 overs before the game as called. Keith Beggs top scored for the Mounties with an unbeaten 33 while Justin Grant was also unbeaten on 28.

Main Ridge fall over PENINSULA

By IT Gully MAIN Ridge was completely embarrassed in its MPCA Peninsula match on Saturday, smashed by Pines by more than 150 runs. Cruising at the top of the table after the first three rounds, Main Ridge was set 235 for victory after the Piners were bowled out for 234. The Ridge never looked like winning, losing wickets from the outset with Nick Wilcox, Pat Jackson and Alex Coad all getting amongst the wickets for the Piners. Coad played arguably his best game for Pines, again realising his substantial potential and finishing with 4/27 from 14 overs. Harley Parker was also in the game, bowling just two overs and snaring 2/6. Shaun Foster top scored for the Ridge with 33, while skipper Nick Jewell was next best with 13. Long Island had a lot of work to do on the second day of its match against Somerville. A total of 13 wickets fell on the opening day of the clash with Somerville bowled out for 136 and Long Island finishing the day at 3/46. Pubudu Edirisinghe (69) and Michael Burke (51) were the not out batsmen when play resumed on Saturday at Ballam Park. When Burke became the first wicket of the day, the Islanders had won the match and were eight runs ahead (4/144). Stuart Swift (24) and Andrew Tweddle (32) then made a contribu-

tion to help the Islanders to 245, a comprehensive 109-run victory. Red Hill continued its recent domination of Delacombe Park, rolling the home side by three wickets. There is no love lost between these two sides after a fiery grand final last season and the Hillmen would have been tickled pink to put the Parkers to the sword yet again. The Parkers were always up against it though, defending just 137. Matt Merifield opened with 40 and Simon Dart scored 38 to steer the Hillmen to victory. Tim Collett added 24. Dean Blight was the pick of the Parkers’ bowlers with 3/56. Red Hill scored 7/148 in 64 overs. Moorooduc got the job done against Flinders, winning by almost 100 runs. The Ducs had put 192 on the board on day one and had Flinders 1/14 overnight. New recruit Pathum De Mel was the destroyer for the Ducs, bowling 16 overs and finishing with 7/35, including five maidens. Justin McLeary opened the bowling also and finished with 2/31 from 14 overs. The evergreen Kenny Cremen picked-up the other wicket. Flinders was rolled for just 106.

Seaford pulls off a big win DISTRICT

By IT Gully SEAFORD has pulled off one of its best wins in recent times, picking up a reverse outright against Baden Powell in MPCA District cricket. When play resumed on Saturday, Seaford was 2/27, chasing Baden Powell’s first innings of 189. There were early celebrations for the Braves, ripping through Seaford’s batting line-up for just 98. Seaford skipper Ryan McQueen top scored with half of the entire score, hit-

ting 49, while Shaun Allardyce hit 15. Braves’ skipper Craig Entwhistle was the pick of the bowlers with 4/17 while Nathan Rice snared 3/33. With first innings points locked away and a 91-run lead, Baden Powell went back out into the middle. Problem was, it lasted just 21 overs, bowled out for 70. Dale Christie snared 6/18 for Seaford. With 151 runs to get and operating against the overs’ clock, Seaford needed someone to ‘go off’ with the bat to get their side over the line. Enter Dean Polson. Seaford lost

some early wickets before Polson strode to the crease. He hammered 84 in just over 15 overs to help his side score 7/162 and pick-up the unlikely reverse outright. At the end of the first day of the Hastings v Rye clash, the Blues were in the box seat, defending 177 and having Rye on the ropes at 3/27. By the end of the second day, the Demons’ Tim Symons (58) and Clayton Barnes (34) set up the visitors’ victory. However, the work wasn’t done. It needed a wagging tale to get the job done. Josh Gana (26), Todd Harnett

(21), Andrew Dunn (25) and Dean Collins (10) were the final four batsmen for the Demons and steered their side to victory, finishing on 222. Ryan McNamara was the best of the Hastings’ bowlers with 4/75 from 24 overs. Mt Martha made light work of Seaford Tigers, winning by more than 100 runs. Resuming at 1/38 and chasing 117 for victory, Mt Martha middle-order bat Brett Wilkinson finished unbeaten on 59 to drive the Reds to victory. Elliott Lord opened with 32 and Max

McKenzie finished with 35. Tigers’ skipper Dave James was the pick of the bowlers with 4/37 from 18.3 overs. Rosebud was smashed by Heatherhill. Chasing 307 for victory, the Buds were rolled for 166, Jason Nagel top scoring with 58. Jake Theobald was superb for the Hills with 6/56 off 34 overs, including 12 maidens. Jason Hinde was also good with the rock, snaring 3/25 from 11.3 overs.

Pandas have dip but fall short SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BONEO failed in its attempt to pick up a reverse outright win against Carrum Downs in MPCA Sub District cricket. The game was set up for an enthralling second day with the game poised with Carrum Downs just six runs ahead with five wickets in hand. Boneo was rolled for 73 in its first innings and Carrum Downs was resuming at 5/79. The Pandas achieved exactly what they were after at the beginning of the second day, taking five Carrum Downs wickets for just 20 runs, rolling the Cougars for 99. Trailing by just 26 runs, Boneo needed at least 160-170 on the board in its second innings to have a total to defend. They were bowled out for 137, giving them a second-innings lead of just 111. The Cougars started well, set a foundation and cruised to victory five wickets down, finishing at 5/115. Leon McConnell top scored with 37. Balnarring had no trouble against Frankston YCW, despite half-centuries to Jo Gott (50) and Jason Bedford (51). Defending 257, the Saints rolled the Stonecats for 198. Balnarring skipper Mal Coutts was at his best with the ball, snaring 4/34 from 21 overs, while

However, the Yabbies cruised to victory six wickets down, James Holland-Burch scoring 56 and Aidan Pateman scoring 50. Tootgarook had no issues against Carrum, winning comfortably. The Frogs trailed by just 80 runs heading into the second day and had an outright win on offer. Tootgarook declared at 3/158 after batting just 41 overs on the second day and threw Carrum back in to bat. The Frogs went so close to winning, however, fell agonisingly one wicket short. Carrum finished at 9/49, still seven runs behind. Dromana was able to do what was expected and pick-up victory against Ballam Park, however, it wasn’t easy. The Tigers resumed at 3/15, chasing 136. That scoreline became 4/41, then 5/49 and 6/58 before Zac Klan (39) and Sam Fowler (49) took the Hoppers to victory. Dromana finished all out for 176, 40 runs ahead. Stuart Plunkett was the best of the Knights’ bowlers with 5/58 from 32 overs.

You don’t have to live with the fear of your back ‘going’ Do you have back pain caused by problems such as degenerative disc disease, arthritis, sacroiliac joint strain or facet joint pain? My name is Paul Rowson, physiotherapist and owner of Back In Motion Balnarring. Back pain keeps you from enjoying the good things in life, like gardening, playing golf, time with the grandkids, or playing your favourite sport. It can certainly make you feel older than you are.

Pain killers on their own are not the answer. There is a time to use pain killers, but not before seeking out a natural way to correct the cause of the back pain. If that is you, are you any better off for it? At Back In Motion Balnarring, it has been our mission to help people across the Mornington Peninsula achieve optimal health. For me, this starts with fixing your back problem.

With our holistic evaluation we can find the problem, correct it and teach you how to maintain a healthy back and lifestyle. Think of how you will feel in a few weeks time! See and feel your life change for the better as your pain eases and muscle tone gradually improves. As you begin to see your back movement improve, you’re feeling younger, playing sport again, enjoying activities with your family, moving better in the morning and performing better at work.

A lumbar roll encourages proper seating posture and can minimise lower back pain. (RRP $45)

New clients say this often and here’s the reason why. Firstly, we provide an in-depth Free Initial Assessment to determine the cause of your back problem and listen to your concerns. In your Free Initial Assessment we will look at your lower limb biomechanics, leg length, flexibility and laxity between your vertebrae, as well as tight and overactive muscles that may be affecting your ability to move freely. We will also assess the back and abdominal muscles that control your back movement and stability. After we have explained the cause of your pain, you can decide if you wish to proceed with treatment.

If you do decide to proceed, treatment will involve manual therapy, massage and mobilisation as well as an exercise program tailored to your specific needs. We also offer clinical Pilates with a physiotherapist, again tailored to your goals and needs. This is vital to maintain a strong back so you can enjoy a future without repeated painful setbacks, which can impact your quality of life.

UK trio for Strikers, Cairns trio for Langy SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie OSCAR Marsden, Ryan Thompson and Zach Reynolds are expected to arrive in Melbourne next year to join the Andy O’Dell revolution at Peninsula Strikers. Marsden and Thompson are due here on 10 January while Reynolds may not arrive until late February. The recently relegated Centenary Park club plans to bounce straight back into State 2 and O’Dell has been tasked with effecting a major overhaul of the senior squad. The three English imports are an integral part of his plans. Forwards Thompson and Marsden play with Brigg Town in England’s Northern Counties East League Division One. Ex-Mornington striker Ryan Paczkowski and wide midfielder Nathan Smith are former Brigg Town players. Although Thompson is only 21 he is the longest-serving player in Brigg Town’s senior squad and in 2015/16 was the manager’s player of the year and the players’ player of the year. Marsden is 20 and his previous clubs are North Cave, Sculcoates Amateurs and Pocklington Town. Reynolds is a 24-year-old left or right wide midfielder who is with Southern League Premier Division outfit Chesham United. His previous clubs are Crawley Town, Aylesbury United, Dunstable Town, Arlesey Town and Hemel Hempstead Town. O’Dell is worried that other clubs will try and poach Reynolds hence his arrival much later than his new teammates. The Strikers’ gaffer is also wary of NPL clubs chasing another one of his visa targets, a 24-year-old former Sheffield United striker who is already in Melbourne and who is set for talks with O’Dell this week. Strikers have also agreed terms with three players from State 2 North-West champion Altona City, O’Dell’s previous club. Defenders Hayden Beasley, 31, and James Neighbour, 27, were mainstays in Altona City’s titlewinning side. Beasley is a former Altona Magic and Brunswick City player while Neighbour has captained Clifton Hill and also had a stint with Altona Magic. Neighbour won Altona City’s 2017 best and fairest and players’ player of the year awards.

Strikers’ signings: Brigg Town forwards Oscar Marsden, left, and Ryan Thompson have agreed terms with Peninsula Strikers.

Lucas Wootton, 26, is an attacking midfielder who previously played with Brunswick City and is the third Altona City player to head over the Westgate. Strikers have also agreed terms with utility Marcus Slimane, 27, a former Altona City player who played at State 1 level with Caulfield United Cobras this year. Former Scottish professional Jamie Paterson has joined Strikers’ coaching staff. Paterson played with Falkirk, Scunthorpe, Halifax Town and Doncaster Rovers in the UK as well as Dandenong Thunder and Mornington. At this stage, the only Strikers players from last season to have agreed terms are goalkeeper Colin McCormack, striker Aziz Bayeh and midfielder Danny Brooks. Central defender Raphael Stulz has trialled with South Melbourne and was rumoured to be in Mornington’s sights but the Dallas Brooks Park outfit has denied any interest. “I’d like to see him (Stulz) stay and he’ll be an even better player with better players around him,” said O’Dell, who plans to talk to Stulz this week. Strikers have lost midfielder Sam

Scott to Mornington and are keen to talk to former player and current Mornington midfielder Craig Smart. However, Mornington senior coach Adam Jamieson is due to hold talks with Smart and is confident of retaining the Scotsman and has added two NPL players to the squad chasing next year’s State 1 SouthEast title. “I can’t give you their names right now because they need to contact their clubs and tell them that they’ve signed with us but they are both very good players and we’re delighted to have signed them,” said Jamieson. It’s a fair hike from the far north of Queensland to Lawton Park but that has not stopped three teenagers from Cairns accepting offers to join Langwarrin’s new under-20s squad. Langy’s trying hard to keep a lid on it but that’s a big ask after you’ve beaten Croatian-backed Sydney United and Victorian clubs Box Hill United, Dandenong Thunder and Altona Magic to the punch. Brothers Cody and Ayden Eszes and their mate Josh Mulla impressed all onlookers during recent under-20 trials. All three have come through the ranks at Leichhardt Lions FC in the FNQ Premier League and

have played regularly at senior and reserves levels. Mulla and Ayden Eszes are both 19 and can play as central defenders or as strikers. Cody Eszes, 17, is a midfielder or forward who played for Queensland at the national schoolboys championships. He was voted Queensland’s player of the tournament and attracted the attention of scouts from high-profile clubs. He has been selected in the Australian schoolboys side to tour the UK in January. Ayden and Cody are the sons of former Hungarian youth international Jimmy Eszes. “All three are technically very good, big, strong and quick and with hard work and application I wouldn’t be surprised if all three were pushing for a senior gig at some stage of next season,” said Langwarrin under-20s head coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor. Skye United is holding trials for its State 1 women’s team on Sunday 19 November and Sunday 26 November starting at 10.30am at Skye Recreation Reserve in Ballarto Road. The club invites triallists as young as 14 and Skye is recognised for

Somerville Eagles are on the hunt for senior and reserve coaches and director of coaching Zach Pedersen is the go-to man for prospective candidates. “Our preference is for a senior coach who can bring in a couple of experienced players to show the younger players what it takes,” said Pedersen. “We’ve got a lot of talented young players but most of them have not played much senior soccer. “We’re hoping to hire a developmental coach for the reserves.” Pedersen can be contacted on 0400 026 912 or via email at zach@ elevationsports.com.au. Local women’s NPL club Southern United last week announced the appointment of Graham Dudley as operations manager and technical director. Dudley holds an AFC B coaching licence and arrived in Melbourne from England 11 years ago. He has coached at Carrum United (now Skye United) where he initiated a senior women’s program, assisted Ian Williamson at Casey Comets in the Women’s Premier League, coached at Southern Blue Tongues and is a former director of football at Beaumaris. Dudley was Bayside United’s technical director and the club’s inaugural senior coach. He is the founder and CEO of Global Performance Testing International Limited which provides state-of-the-art sport testing and comprehensive packages to train coaches in reliable and accurate data gathering and assessment. “Our immediate aim at Southern United is to grow the brand and reestablish what the women’s NPL is all about,” said Dudley. “We will specialise in weakness identification and coaching and development strategies and we aim to create the most professional environment possible. “Our coaches will coach as a team and won’t be confined to their roles within their individual groups.” Southern has appointed John Meades as head coach of the under12s and is set to announce its new under-16s head coach.

Pro boxer empowers the vulnerable By Ben Triandafillou TAKING up boxing to protect himself and his family at the young age of 12, professional welterweight boxer Adam Kaoullas is now giving back to the sport by empowering the vulnerable. Now aged 23, and heading into his fourth professional fight on Friday (10 November), Kaoullas has been teaching young junior boxers and adults self-defence through boxing. Currently coaching upwards of 200 boxers across three separate gyms, Kaoullas says coaching the young kids and building their confidence is definitely the most rewarding class he runs. “Boxing kept me on the right path as I used it as an outlet to keep fit, happy and healthy when I was younger, and now the fact that I can give this to the kids is very rewarding,” he said. “When you see the kids come in you’d think that the aggressive ones will be the ones who enjoy it the most but it’s really the kids who are the most timid who benefit the most as they feel empowered knowing they can defend themselves. “I have never allowed any type of violence other than self-defence for the kids. If I hear someone doing it outside the gym without it being the last resort then you can’t come back here.” Kaoullas coaches regularly at Crunch Fitness, Mentone and Fit2Box, Moorabbin but it’s at the Pure Combat Centre, Rosebud where he has started to teach the youth.

“I’ve always loved teaching boxing to females and kids as they are sometimes the ones who are vulnerable,” he said. “I grew up with four women including my mother and a younger brother so I’ve always wanted to protect my family and now others.” Kaoullas has been teaching children aged between four and 10-years-old at the Pure Combat Centre for the last year and began a teenager’s class last month for juniors aged between 10 and 15 years old. “We have only been running the teenager’s class for the last four to five weeks but they have picked it up amazingly,” Kaoullas said.

“They have been able to pick it up a lot quicker and we’ve been having an even mix of boys and girls turn up which is great to see.” “We focus more on technique and their boxing with the teenagers, while we do 30 minutes on technique, 15 minutes of drills and 15 minutes of games with the younger kids.” Under the guidance of Australia’s current top rank middleweight, Sam “King” Soliman, and secondary coach, Steve Kerr, Kaoullas said he has tried to replicate a lot from what he has learnt from his own coaches. “Sam Soliman took me under his wing when I was about 16 and Steve Kerr has been like a father figure to

me,” Kaoullas said. “I’ve tried to absorb as much as I can from what my coaches have taught me. “I have taken many fundamentals and drills, different techniques and moves from them to help my members and clients improve like I have.” Undertaking a professional boxing career of his own, Kaoullas had his first fight in October last year and earned his first title win earlier this year. At his last fight on Friday 21 July, Kaoullas defeated Natthapon Chalotorn by knockout in the opening round at the Malvern Town Hall to earn the Australasian Nitro title.

In preparation for his next fight on Friday night, Kaoullas has turned what was originally a holiday in Hawaii into a training camp. “I have been training twice a day and the sparring is giving me a great workout,” he said. “When you’re at home you need to focus on so many other things as well as training on top of that. “It’s worked out pretty well as I have had a clear head combining the holiday with training. “ Kaoullas will face Dillon Bargero in his fourth career fight at the Malvern Town Hall as he continues to strive for an Australian title in the welterweight division.

Sutton cycles to success By Ben Triandafillou UP AND COMING Mt Martha cyclist Sophie Sutton has won the Mountain Bike Series at the Victorian Schools Cycling Championships for the fifth consecutive year. The year 7 student represented Padua College in both the mountain biking and road cycling state finals in Bendigo over the weekend of Friday 20 October. Sophie ended her fourth and final round of the under-15s Female Mountain Bike Series in second place, leaving her in equal first position on aggregate points for the series. Sophie, a member of the Red Hill Mountain Bike Club, tied with another junior from the club, Millie Chester, who represented Frankston High School.

Sophie then went on to finish runnersup in the under-15s Female Road Racing state final on the Saturday. Kelly Sutton, Sophie’s mother, said cycling has become her life since she started mountain bike riding in 2013. “She loves mountain biking, going on the jumps and getting dirty,” she said. “She’s been hooked ever since she went with her father to a local event that they had on at the Red Hill Mountain Bike Club. “She said ‘I want to do this’ and has continued to go from strength to strength.” Sophie is now competing in the second round of the National Junior Track Series (velodrome) in Sydney over the long weekend. In the opening round of the series,

Sophie finished in fifth place at the twoday event which was held in Darebin, Victoria last month. “We were blown away by how well she did at the event as there were kids coming from everywhere to compete in it,” Kelly said. “She has only recently started competing in the velodrome races so she’s done a great job to finish so well. “She was getting a lot of help from the Mornington Cycling Club and now the Blackburn Cycling Club is helping her, so she’s got a lot of support behind her.” Sophie has two more races in the series over the coming months which will see her head to Brisbane and then to Adelaide.
