This week, the City of Parramatta is celebrating

Burramatta NAIDOC Week with a rich online

program of arts, culture, music, and dance

– recognising that our City always was and

always will be an important gathering place.

NAIDOC Week is a wonderful opportunity

our rich Indigenous and colonial history, and

unearths our City’s history and heritage through

a range of local stories about pandemics,

legends, food, buildings, and more. As

Australia’s second oldest City, Parramatta has

so many stories, cultures, and personalities to

explore. I encourage you to delve into our City’s

past and present by watching the series here:

Evolution of Parramatta

Marise Payne says striking a balance is critical as our city continues to develop

NICOLA BARTON

Foreign Affairs Minister Marise Payne has an office based in Parramatta.

Over the past decade, Parramatta

has seen an enormous amount of

change, much of it for the better,

some of it perhaps not.

For those who have lived or worked in

the region during this time, they have truly

witnessed the metamorphosis of Sydney’s

second city, as well as the battle of old and

new; heritage and development.

Some 20 years ago, Minister for Foreign

Affairs, Senator Marise Payne set up her

Macquarie Street office.

As a proud advocate for western Sydney

she thought this was key in ensuring there

was a strong representation of the Liberal

Party in Parramatta.

She remains in that office today, however

the city that surrounds it is far from the

same.

Ms Payne said she has a real soft spot for

the Parramatta community.

“The drive, the passion, the strength, the

diversity; Parramatta is ever-changing, it

never stands still,” she told Parra News.

“We love the excitement of the future, but

we also have a passion for both our Indigenous

and colonial history, all of which go

to make Parramatta so fascinating.

“I love to see that in practice at schools, at

Western Sydney University, in businesses,

and in fact everywhere I go here.”

Ms Payne said she is immensely proud of

what has been achieved in the region.

“It has been an absolute honour and

privilege to work in Parramatta and its surrounding

communities over all this time,”

she said.

Parramatta is the beating heart, the engine

room and the focus of so much activity

in our state and our nation, that I feel like I

would be missing out if I wasn’t here!”

When it comes to the rapid change the

city has experienced, Ms Payne agreed that

striking a balance between old and new is

important.

“I respect the views of both sides of this

discussion, and I think all levels of Government,

Local, State and Federal, along with

our communities, have a role to play in endeavouring

to achieve that balance,” she

said.

As she looks to the future to imagine what

Parramatta might look like in another decade,

Ms Payne said the opportunities are

endless.

“It might be in high-tech business, in becoming

a foodie and cultural gourmet centre

of Sydney with our fabulous restaurants,

in the development of the services industry,

as a sports hub or as a city with a worldclass

skills and higher education precinct;

all these futures provide enormous opportunities,”

she said.

Compromise is the answer

Say the words “Willow Grove” to the

average person on the street and you’ll

probably draw a blank.

Yet this tranquil heritage villa in the

Parramatta CBD – which the NSW Government

wants to make way for a second

Powerhouse Museum – has become

ground zero in a fierce community battle

over how much a city looking to the future

should cherish its past.

The fate of Willow Grove has become a

soap opera and the latest twist tops the

lot. The government now plans to dismantle

Willow Grove and rebuild it in

North Parramatta at an estimated cost of

$10 million to taxpayers.

Apparently, it’s not as easy as picking up

the thing and putting it on the back of a

truck.

This story begins in 2015 when Premier

Mike Baird embraced an ambitious vision

(led, among others, by former state

Labor MP David Borger, now executive

director of the Western Sydney Business

Chamber), to relocate the Powerhouse

Museum from Ultimo to Parramatta.

Their intentions were correct. With

nearly one-third of the state’s population,

it’s long past time for Western Sydney to

have a world-class museum and snare its

fair share of arts funding.

Index

News..............................................1-23

Diwali Festival....................24-27

A prime Parramatta riverside location

adjoining Willow Grove was snapped

up (the site of the old David Jones car

park). And the government went to the

2019 election promising both to move the

Powerhouse and protect Willow Grove:

“We’ve always said of course our intention

is to save it,” Premier Gladys Berejiklian

said.

Fast forward 18 months. A huge innercity

backlash has forced the government

to leave the original Powerhouse in Ultimo.

But “Powerhouse Parramatta” will

still be built in the same controversial

location. And the sweeping design by architects

Moreau Kusunoki and Genton

means Willow Grove must go.

Cue a new backlash led by the irrepressible

Suzette Meade of the North Parramatta

Residents Action Group, joined

by Labor and Greens councillors – and

improbably, the CFMEU and Ray Hadley.

Now there are good people on all sides

of this debate. Powerhouse proponents

say a brilliant new cultural icon will announce

Parramatta’s arrival on the map.

But heritage advocates have tapped

into a dogged community sentiment that

the world’s great cities don’t walk away

from their history. We can transform Parramatta

while holding onto the character

Horoscopes...............................28

Entertainment .................29-38

and memories that make it so special.

And Willow Grove, surrounded by new

construction, is an oasis in a city changing

fast.

So the government wants to yank Willow

Grove over to North Parramatta while

Labor says we should build the new museum

there, a much less accessible location

than the CBD.

Of course, there’s also a third option –

compromise. Last week, we learned Powerhouse

Parramatta has been quietly redesigned

now that most of the collection

will stay in Ultimo. The exhibition space

has been significantly shrunk. There are

also greater setbacks to the river, presumably

to mitigate flood risks.

But if the Powerhouse can be redesigned

once, surely it can be redesigned

twice. How about we return to the original

premise and actually create a museum

on the river that complements Parramatta’s

heritage, instead of destroys it?

And let’s open up historic grounds to

the community and find ways to bring

our heritage alive for new generations,

instead of shutting people behind padlocked

gates. A Powerhouse Parramatta

that keeps Willow Grove and celebrates it

exactly where it is – now that would be a

plot twist.

A missed opportunity

Experienced doctor laments loss of Westmead’s dedicated Palliative Care Unit

NICOLA BARTON

A

former Western Sydney Local Health

District Palliative Care Director is

calling out Westmead Hospital executives

over the demise of its stand-alone

Supportive and Palliative Care Unit.

Dr Phillip Lee worked as a Palliative Care

Specialist at Westmead and later inherited

the role of Director before his retirement

in 2017. During his time at the hospital,

he worked alongside a specialist team of

doctors and nurses who treated complex

palliative patients as experts in pain management,

family counselling and most importantly,

helping those with terminal illnesses

achieve their goals.

“Westmead was at the forefront of the

development of palliative care in Australia

when they established the ward back in the

mid 80’s, it wasn’t even recognised as a specialty

until 1999,” Dr Lee told Parra News.

“As a training hospital the focus was the

complex patients as we had access to the

right specialists.”

Dr Lee recounted the treatment of a complex

patient and said the collaboration of

specialists it required is “something that

Dr Phillip Lee at Westmead Hospital last week. Photo: Wendy Pham.

could only be achieved in a hospital like

Westmead.”

But in 2009 the dedicated palliative care

ward was closed, with the beds transferred

to the cancer ward.

“Since then the palliative care team has

completely lost control and they are no

longer dedicated palliative beds,” he said.

“If a patient from the community needs

to come in for complex palliative care they

have to go to emergency, stay in intensive

care or they get transferred to an unsuitable

ward; it was a flow on effect to the whole

hospital.”

Dr Lee said back when the ward still existed,

they would work directly with community

nurses to have patients transferred

directly to the palliative ward.

Hospitals around the country are expanding

their dedicated palliative care wards.

In NSW Liverpool and Concord Hospitals

have new dedicated wards, with planning

underway for Gosford and Royal North

Shore hospitals.

A WSLHD spokesperson said Westmead

continues to provide excellent palliative

care in its cancer and haematology ward.

“Patients can also be referred to our facility

at Mount Druitt Hospital, which has an

award-winning, purpose-built and specialised

palliative and supportive care service,”

the spokesperson said.

“We have partnered with palliative care

provider Silver Chain to provide in-home

palliative care to patients in western Sydney

who have advanced, progressive and lifelimiting

illnesses.”

Dr Lee said whilst the Mt Druitt ward is

great, he believes it can’t provide the same

level of quality care for complex cases.

“They’ve forgotten the core reason why

the Westmead ward was originally established

and that was to treat the complex patients

that couldn’t be treated elsewhere,”

he said.

A petition for the ward to be reopened can

be found here: https://bit.ly/3l4fnWq.

Desperate families at

The deadly Coronavirus pandemic has impacted us all in one way or another, but

NICOLA BARTON

It’s been over a year since Wentworthville

resident Vikram Manuja has seen

his wife Sudha, after COVID-19 erupted

just as she was scheduled to get back from

a trip to India.

Like over 30,000 other Australians stuck

overseas, the couple have faced many obstacles

in their quest to return home.

From passenger caps and limited flights,

to cancellations after cancellation, the journey

home for many is a complex one.

But these roadblocks have been only

the beginning for the couple, as physical

and mental medical conditions prohibit

Ms Manuja from being able to quarantine

alone.

Despite this, their application for an exemption

to hotel quarantine was denied.

Mr Manuja said the process isn’t fair and

he just wants his wife to be able to come

home safely.

“I am happy to home quarantine with her,

even with those tracking bracelets; we have

no issues in doing that,” he said.

“Even our local doctor agrees she is not fit

to quarantine alone.

“This is not about the money for us it’s

about her health.”

Ms Manuja is currently staying with family

near Delhi who are taking turns in caring

for her.

India has been one of the hardest hit

countries in the world.

The country has had 8.3 million COV-

ID-19 cases and 124,000 deaths.

Whilst cases are currently on a steady

decline, Mr Manuja said he has grave concerns

for his wife’s health.

A NSW Health spokesperson would not

comment specifically on the couple’s case

for ‘privacy reasons’.

“NSW Health and other government

agencies make available medical, mental

health and well-being support for those

staying in quarantine to ensure their stay is

as comfortable as possible,” the spokesperson

said.

“The NSW Health managed Special

Health Accommodation is managed 24/7

by a team of medical, nursing and allied

health clinicians.

“This quarantine option is available to

people who require medical oversight or

higher levels of support during their stay.”

Mr Manuja said their objection was on the

mercy of pandemic

for some, it has left a trail of devastation, stress and no sign of hope emerging

basis that he needs to book a flight before

they can receive the exemption, which is no

easy feat.

He is then concerned that if they are lucky

enough to get on the plane that there won’t

be enough time to get the exemption processed

and she will have to face hotel quarantine,

at risk to her health.

The Federal Government recently announced

eight charter flights to ‘rescue’

around 5000 of those stranded in the United

Kingdom, India and South Africa.

This has received criticism from those

who have had their regular flights cancelled

due to strict passenger caps.

Federal Parramatta MP Julie Owens said

the Morrison Government needs to come

up with a better solution and that these

charter flights “aren’t going to touch the

sides”.

COVID-19 impacts immigration

The pandemic has not only torn apart unlucky

travellers but added to an issue that

has been looming in this country for some

time.

Prior to the pandemic, married couples,

families and the like had been separated for

years, awaiting the approval of their Partner

Visa Applications.

Director of Australian Visa and Migration

Consultancy Services in Harris Park, Sanjay

Deshwal said this backlog is a huge issue in

the Parramatta Indian community and is

only worsening as a result of the pandemic.

“I have clients who got married in 2013

or 2014 and their spouses are sill in Bangladesh

and now with COVID-19 they can’t

even see them,” he said.

Abdul Mur is one of Mr Deshwal’s clients

and married his wife in 2009. He applied for

a Partner Visa in 2013 and still awaits its approval.

“My wife and two kids are in Bangladesh

waiting but they are from Burma and so

they are there illegally, hiding; it is very dangerous

for them,” he told Parra News.

Mr Mur fears he won’t see his family for

many more years.

A spokesperson from the Department of

Home Affairs confirmed there would be

delays.

“Some applicants may currently have difficulty

providing requested checks, such as

health, character or biometrics, because

these services may be unavailable in their

country,” the spokesperson said.

Priority will be given to Partner Visa applicants

already in Australia.

“We have worked closely with the Victorian

Government throughout the border

closure and will continue to monitor the

situation as restrictions are eased.

“Our policy in NSW is to keep moving

forward and operating in a COVID-Safe

manner – the reopening of the NSW/Victorian

direction.”

Health Minister Brad Hazzard added:

“This will be good riddance to a border

Channing Tatum

and the entire team

behind ‘Magic Mike

Live’ are bringing

the hit production to

Australia.

‘Magic Mike Live’ will have its

Australian Premiere in Sydney

from Thursday, December 17 at the

Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park.

This Premiere season will be the

first production around the world to

return to the stage after international

lockdown.

Conceived and directed by Channing

Tatum, ‘Magic Mike Live’ is a

thrilling 360-degree live dance and

acrobatic spectacular based on the

hit movies ‘Magic Mike’ and ‘Magic

Mike XXL’. Equal parts empowering

and exhilarating, ‘Magic Mike Live’

is one of the most unique, immersive

live-entertainment experiences in the

world.

The films were adored by Australian

audiences and fans will be thrilled to

see the show live on stage – they won’t

be disappointed.

Creator and director Channing

Tatum said he was excited about the

show landing down under.

“The morning after we opened our

first production in Vegas four years

ago, we all talked about the crazy

idea of someday putting ‘Magic Mike

Live’ in a tent and travelling around

Australia. The fact that it’s actually

happening now is mind-blowing to

me. The tent and this new version of

the show is more than I ever imagined

it could be and I can’t wait for our fans

in Australia to see what we’ve created

especially for them,” he said.

‘Magic Mike Live’ will perform in the

world’s largest Spiegeltent, named The

Arcadia, specifically designed and

built for Australian audiences.

This beautiful two storey Spiegeltent

with a glass lobby, custom bars, a mini

food hall, an indoor/outdoor lounge

area has been configured to ensure

the comfort and safety of all patrons.

CHOOSING THE

BEST HEDGING

PLANTS

By Kim Richardson, Marketing Communications


A hedge can be the perfect way to

finish a garden – but with so many

choices out there, where do you

start? We’ve narrowed it down to 5

top picks that will thrive in Sydney

gardens.

If you need a reliable, lowgrowing

hedge, buxus could be

your perfect match. This popular

plant is well-known for its compact

growth habit, which is ideal for

achieving a formal look.

With abundant cream blooms

appearing from spring right

through to autumn, you’ll often

smell a gardenia before you see it.

It’s a truly rewarding hedge to grow

with its rich perfume and glossy

foliage.

Murraya is another scented garden

sensation. Clusters of small but

delightfully fragrant white flowers

appear against its evergreen leaves

from spring through to autumn.

After a lush and glossy green

hedge in a hurry? Fast-growing

favourite viburnum

odoratissimum is ideal – plus, you’ll

enjoy tiny, scented flowers

all through spring.

For the ultimate fast-growing

screen, tall and bushy lilly pilly just

can’t be beaten. This hardy native

will block out prying eyes in

a jiffy.

Before you choose your perfect

hedging plant, consider

positioning, sunlight and soil

requirements. If you’re unsure,

chat with an expert before you get

started.

Happy gardening!

Call to cool our schools

Research reveals surface temperatures can soar to 70 degrees during summer

NICOLA BARTON

Western Sydney University researchers

measured playground

surface temperatures of up to 70

degrees last summer, with a report now

calling on local schools to consider their

cooling strategies.

The ‘School Microclimates’ report assessed

a public school in western Sydney in

the first comprehensive assessment of outdoor

heat on school grounds.

Last summer researchers collected more

than 100,000 heat data points within the

school whilst also comparing the temperatures

of sunlit and shaded ground coverings.

Their investigations revealed unshaded

surfaces, including asphalt, reach up to 70

degrees Celsius.

Lead researcher Dr Sebastian Pfautsch,

from Western Sydney University’s School of

Social Sciences said the report represents

the first evidence-based design and building

guidelines to address outdoor heat at

school.

“Our summers are becoming increasingly

hot,” he said.

New research has revealed just how hot outdoor areas at schools can get during summer.

“To ensure students can benefit from time

spent outdoors, there is a need to better understand

the microclimates of our schools

and to develop strategies to cool these environments

down.”

The study found that avoiding artificial

grass in unshaded spaces, shading black asphalt,

allowing natural air flows and using

shade materials with highly reflective upper

surfaces, should all be standard design

and building guidelines for schools.

Interestingly, the report found the lowest

air and surface temperatures were recorded

under tree canopies, with cooling benefits

dependent on tree species, canopy size and

availability of soil moisture.

Co-author Professor Michelle Leishman

from Macquarie University’s Department

of Biological Science said the research has

highlighted the importance of tree canopies

in schools for cooling.

“Trees not only provide shade but also act

as ‘green air-conditioners’ through evaporative

cooling,” she said.

“It’s our happy place.

It’s home.”

Protecting our history

Do not disturb: Light Rail construction will avoid disrupting key burial sites

NICOLA BARTON

Unmarked graves near Parramatta’s

historic St Patrick’s Cemetery will

be protected as the Parramatta

Light Rail Project shifts design plans to

ensure what lies beneath remains undisturbed.

Following underground exploration and

archaeological testing, the project has undergone

a significant redesign to ensure it

side-steps five suspected burial sites.

The cemetery is the final resting place of

many Catholic convicts and exiled Irish

rebels, as well as early Irish priests of Parramatta,

numerous inmates of early institutions

including the Female Factory, the

Military Barracks, the Benevolent Asylum,

the Roman Catholic and Presbyterian Orphan

Schools, the Lunatic Asylum, Invalid

Asylum, Sydney and Parramatta Hospitals

and the Poor House.

The site in question is outside of the cemetery’s

modern-day bounds.

Parramatta MP Geoff Lee said significant

archaeological testing has allowed them to

redesign the plans around the burial sites

before construction commences.

Construction of the Light Rail will side-step suspected burial sites.

“This beautiful old graveyard has a rich

and complicated history, including borders

that have moved over the centuries,”

he said.

“Although this particular portion of land

has not been part of the cemetery since the

1930s, it is important that our work treads

lightly and nowhere is this more important

than this peaceful and historic site.”

Dr Lee said construction of the Parramatta

Light Rail has been designed to reduce

any impact to suspected burial sites from

earlier phases of the cemetery.

“Our light rail team came up with solutions

including design and construction

methods that minimise ground excavation

and a custom-made pavement as shallow

as 100 millimetres, so as not to disturb what

might lie beneath,” he said.

“There is always potential for light rail

work to encounter human remains, and

this is why we have protocols in place to

manage any discovery and ensure the sensitive

handling and appropriate recording

of what is found.”

Light rail works are moving north across

the street from the 19th-century cemetery

at the junction of Pennant Hills Road and

Church Street, North Parramatta.

Measuring the impact

New study will determine how much pressure COVID-19 has put on local councils

NICOLA BARTON

A

new study will put both Parramatta

and the Cumberland under a micro-

Scope, assessing the socio-economic

impact of COVID-19.

The ‘Future Directions’ project will look at

the pandemic’s impact on a range of western

Sydney councils including Parramatta,

Cumberland, Blacktown and The Hills

Shire.

Western Sydney University has been engaged

as the research team, with sponsorship

by Westpac.

Researchers predict the damage caused

by the pandemic will ripple through national

and state economies, having its greatest

impact at a local level. The Australian Catholic

University will also provide peer review

and research oversight of the project.

Cumberland City Mayor, Steve Christou

said the research will mould the delivery

of future programs for both residents and

businesses.

“We will respond decisively and innovatively

together to achieve the desired socioeconomic

outcomes for our region,” he

said.

Parramatta City Lord Mayor, Bob Dwyer

said his council would continue its support

that it has delivered throughout the

pandemic with the $3 million COVID-19

Community Resilience and Economic Relief

Package.

“While the impact of COVID-19 has hit us

hard, City of Parramatta Council remains

committed to helping our great City, and

the rest of the Central City district, emerge

from this pandemic stronger and more resilient

than ever,” he said.

The study will examine eight socio-economic

‘influencers’ of the district’s economy

over the next decade.

The research will also consider significant

international trends and seek input from a

range of stakeholders from the public sector,

peak bodies and business.

Research work is already underway, with

an expected final report to be delivered by

February next year.

The ‘Future directions’ research study will

be made public once finalised.

How do you believe the COVID-19 pandemic

has impacted your local council

area? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Labor’s stadium victory

Opposition says it has scored a win to strengthen processes around development

NICOLA BARTON

Any plans for development surrounding

Bankwest Stadium will

have to pass through Parliament,

after a Bill amendment to remove this provision

was blocked by Labor and members

of the crossbench recently.

The legislation for the Sporting Venues

Authorities Bill, which passed in the NSW

Upper House, will ensure a range of sporting

venues including Bankwest Stadium

will be under a single management board.

The original changes to the Bill, proposed

by the State Government, would have allowed

the Minister for Sport to approve

commencement of the development planning

process through the usual Environmental

Planning and Assessment Act processes.

Auburn MP and Shadow Minister for

Sport, Lynda Voltz said this was a “poor

attempt” by the State Government to “slip

changes through the Parliament”.

“With support of the crossbench, Labor

removed provisions from the Bill which

may have unleashed residential and commercial

development,” she said.

Shadow Sports Minister Lynda Voltz at Bankwest Stadium. Photo: Wendy Pham.

“The current provision remains – requiring

the government to bring any proposal

for residential or commercial hotel development

on Venues land back to the

Parliament. Labor was also successful in

removing the Berejiklian Government’s attempted

attack on the Sydney Olympic Park

Authority – which would have seen its assets

carved up under the proposed legislation.”

Bankwest Stadium, Sydney Cricket

Ground, Olympic venues, Wollongong Stadium

and Newcastle Sporting Precinct are

all protected by legislation.

“These changes will ensure sport and the

community’s interests will always come

first in our sporting precincts,” Ms Voltz

said.

Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee defended

the State Government’s original

amendment, stating all development applications

would still have to go through safeguarded

planning processes.

“Any assertion that the Sporting Venues

Authorities (Venues NSW) Bill would have

given the Minister for Sport the opportunity

to approve development is completely

false,” he said.

“The Sporting Venues Authorities (Venues

NSW) Act will deliver huge benefits to

NSW, as we aim to create better usage of

our sporting precincts with a mix of retail,

restaurants, and businesses where appropriate.

“This will encourage the venues and their

surroundings to be used seven days a week,

not just on game days.”

Chance to stop

and remember

NICOLA BARTON

Whilst we will commemorate a little

differently this year, the community

is reminded to pause and

reflect on those who made the ultimate sacrifice

this Remembrance Day.

Tomorrow, members from the Merrylands

RSL Sub-Branch will host a humble

wreath laying ceremony at Charles Mance

Reserve on Newman Street, Merrylands.

In attendance will be Granville MP Julia

Finn, Cumberland Mayor Steve Christou

and Deputy Mayor Eddy Sarkis alongside

Sub-Branch members.

Merrylands RSL Sub-Branch President,

Rob Grimley said they will still conduct the

usual wreath laying ceremony, just with a

restricted number of 50 attendees.

“In a normal year the Sub-Branch runs

two services, one on the Sunday before

where there is a march, service and luncheon

and on Remembrance Day itself there

is a service at Merrylands Memorial Park,

which is usually conducted by the local

school with several hundred students in attendance,”

he said.

“Unfortunately, these can’t go ahead this

year.”

Mr Grimley said it has been a difficult year

for the Sub-Branch as they face many disruptions

due to COVID-19.

“There’s been a lot of disruption this year,

even to our regular Sub-Branch meetings,

we’ve only had three meetings this year, by

now we normally would have had at least

nine,” he said.

Members of the community are being encouraged

to take a moment to pause and

reflect as part of RSL NSW’s national Remember

to Remember campaign.

They are asking people to pause for one

minute in their homes, schools or workplaces

at 11am tomorrow on Wednesday,

November 11 to remember and honour the

memory of all Australians who served, are

currently serving, and those who died or

suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

The traditional Poppy Appeal, a major

fundraising period for RSL NSW, that has

seen Poppies being sold by veterans and

other community groups around the State

for almost 100 years, will move to a dedicated

online platform for the first time, due

to COVID-19 restrictions and related concerns

for the overall health and wellbeing of

RSL NSW members.

Donate to the Poppy Appeal by visiting remembertoremember.com.au.

Issue is starting to bite

Confusion over exactly who’s in charge of Duck River mosquito drama

NICOLA BARTON

Local parents are calling for more to

be done about a mosquito infestation

of Parramatta’s Duck River.

Residents, particularly in areas such as

Rydalmere, Ermington, Meadowbank and

Newington are said to be the worst affected.

ParraParents group organiser, Kellie Darley

has been investigating the issue with an

expert in the field, who detected a population

of about 30,000 mosquitos in the Duck

River earlier this year.

Ms Darley said the issue is a hot topic

amongst parents, with concerns it is deterring

families from enjoying the outdoors.

“I’ve had people tell me they can’t even

hang their clothes on the clothesline because

they just get swamped with mozzies,”

she told Parra News.

“Silverwater Park, which is where Duck

River comes out, was a no-go zone for the

whole of summer last year.

“Sydney Olympic Park wetlands were

sprayed when it had a population of only

1000 but the Duck River lacks a management

plan because it goes through multiple

council areas.”

Mosquitos are causing havoc for many locals.

A City of Parramatta Council spokesperson

said it is not the authority that manages

Duck River, however operates a surveillance

program in partnership with Westmead

Entomology that aims to detect the

early presence of any viruses, such as Barmah

Forest, Stratford, and Edge Hill, in the

mosquito populations across the Parramatta

Local Government Area.

NSW Health Pathology Associate Professor

Cameron Webb said the risk of mosquito-borne

diseases is extremely low along

the Parramatta River, despite the often high

numbers of mosquitoes.

“The greatest risk associated with mosquitoes

in the local area is primarily nuisancebiting,

however, many people can have

nasty reactions,” he said.

Associate Professor Webb said the best

way to treat mosquito bites is to use an ice

compression, anti-itch medication and to

make sure the area remains clean to avoid

secondary infection.

He advises avoiding outdoor activities

close to wetland at dusk and dawn, particularly

after high tide or substantial rainfall.

Long sleeved shirts, long pants, and covered

shoes also provide physical protection

as well as topical insect repellents.

The last NSW Health report for Parramatta,

as part of the NSW Arbovirus Surveillance

and Mosquito Monitoring Program,

was undertaken in March. This report recorded

a “very high” mosquito rating in the

Local Government Area.

In an attempt to find the managing authority,

Parra News was passed through

council and multiple government agencies,

all of which said they weren’t in charge of

the issue. The responsibility of the river lies

under a variety of stakeholders and Ms Darley

said this highlights why the issue has remained

un-managed for some time.

LOCAL NEWS

Meet true local heroes

Grant funding will help inspiring work in the local community to continue

NICOLA BARTON

Three incredible individuals have

been recognised as part of Westfield’s

annual Local Heroes grant

program.

Parramatta’s three grant recipients include

Accessible Diversity Service’s Alison

Jones who works with refugee youth, Jason

Sotiris who provides sick children with free

medical-grade superhero garments and

Louise Borg who is a long-time volunteer of

the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Each inspiring individual will receive a

$10,000 grant, which will be put towards

their cause.

Mr Sotiris, who came up with the idea for

‘Supertees’ after his one-year-old baby was

diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, said he

felt extremely grateful to be a recipient and

that the funding will be used towards establishing

a volunteer program to help them

expand further.

“We aim to help little heroes fight the big

battles,” he said.

Ms Borg, who also works with sick children,

has volunteered for the Western Sydney

branch of the Make-A-Wish Foundation

for 18 years. She is currently the branch

President.

Over the years, she has brought joy to

many families and children with serious

illnesses by pulling out all the stops to fulfil

their wish.

“When you give a child a wish, the smile

and appreciation and joy that you see from

the whole family is so special; they’ve gone

through so much, so to see that joy is really

fulfilling,” she said.

She said her grant money will be used to

fulfil more wishes.

Ms Jones, who works with newly arrived

refugee youth, goes above and beyond to

help them access employment and education

opportunities here in Australia.

Her Learn to Swim program provides Islamic

girls with a private and safe space

to learn to swim, socialise and improve

their physical and emotional well-being. It

also caters for boys. Several students have

trained as swimming instructors, and 14

have been employed so far.

“It allows them to feel really supported

whilst making friends, practicing English

and feeling valued as people and allows

them to become financially independent

with a job,” she said.

The money will be used to fund more

swimming lessons and to buy burkinis for

those who cannot afford them.

This year over $1.2 million has been

awarded to 126 individuals to help them

continue making a difference. Recipients

of these grants are nominated by and voted

for by their local communities.

Youth Forum

Young people have borne the brunt of this crisis and

they will probably feel the effects of the Government’s

response more than any other age group.

I’m hosting online youth forums to give young people

issues. I’ll be co-hosting the first one with the Shadow

Minister for Youth, Amanda Rishworth at 7:00pm on

DIWALI FESTIVAL FEATURE

The Diwali Festival is always full of colour and celebration.

A

colourful festival of lights, dancing,

music and of course, delicious

Indian food is what Diwali is all

about but this year the event will be celebrated

differently.

In recent years, the main street of Parramatta’s

‘Little India’ business hub in

Harris Park was closed to make way for

80,000 revellers who joined together in

the spirit of Diwali.

Festival stores, performances and the

smell of street food filled the streets as

the biggest public celebration of Diwali in

Australia.

But with the pandemic still rife, Organiser

and President of the Little India Harris

Park Business Association Sanjay Deshwal

said this year will not be the same as

previous events.

“This year businesses and homes will

still decorate with lights but no festival

can go ahead,” he told Parra News.

Diwali is a Hindu-originated festival,

celebrated by the Indian community.

Mr Deshwal said Diwali is comparable

to Christmas for the Indian community

and is a time for families to come together

to share sweets and gifts.

“Diwali is the biggest Indian festival, it is

the festival of light and is a celebration of

light and good,” he said.

“It actually represents the changing of

seasons in India and is one of the darkest

nights on the lunar calendar and in a

prehistoric time lord Rama returned to his

native place after defeating the enemies;

it symbolises good over evil and a fresh

new start.”

Mr Deshwal said the Indian community

is feeling the impact of COVID-19.

“People will celebrate quietly this year

which is sad,” he said.

In previous years many political figures

have attended Harris Park for Diwali celebrations

including State Opposition

Leader Jodi McKay, Premier Gladys Berejiklian

as well as local MPs such as Federal

Parramatta MP Julie Owens, State

Parramatta MP Geoff Lee and Parramatta

Mayor Bob Dwyer.

Mr Deshwal said the support over the

years from the broader community, not

just the Indian community is heartening

to see and is a reflection of multicultural

Parramatta. Whilst the festival will not go

ahead this year, businesses will still decorate

their stores in fairy lights which will

be displayed over the next four weeks.

Businesses will still decorate with lights

this year.

Mr Deshwal encouraged the community

to come and support the Harris Park

Little India businesses who have been impacted

significantly during this difficult

time.

A MESSAGE FROM SENATOR MARISE PAYNE

Happy Diwali!

14 November marks the beginning of the festival of lights, faith and prosperity

for many Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists around the world, including our

many friends in India.

On the darkest night of the month and in a year of unprecedented and

collective global challenges, Diwali sends a powerful message of light

overcoming darkness.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the health, wellbeing and security of

many of us. By working together, surrounded by illuminating Diwali lights, we

will get through this time of hardship.

I wish everyone a very Happy Diwali - may the festival of lights continue to unite

families, communities and people of different faiths for generations to come.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

With Mercury and the New Moon stimulating

your career zone, start thinking

about strategic ways to create work opportunities

and maximise your professional

potential. It’s a good week to apply

for a job or get feedback from your current

boss, colleagues, clients or customers.

So shake off any lingering self-doubt

and buckle on your invincibility jacket

Aquarius! Confidence and persistence

are the keys to employment satisfaction

in the coming year.

HOROSCOPES

BROUGHT TO YOU BY BOHO ASTRO - JOANNE MADELINE MOORE

Daily posts at www.bohoastro.com | twitter @JoMadelineMoore | © Joanne Madeline Moore 2020

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

Are you satisfied with your current trajectory?

This week Jupiter, Pluto and

the New Moon activate your aspirations

zones, plus the Sun forms a fabulous

aspect with your ruler Neptune (in

your sign). So it’s a fortuitous time to redesign

your dreams, refresh your future,

and transform an important part of your

life. Draw inspiration from painter and

Scorpio birthday great Georgia O’Keeffe.

“I decided to start anew, to strip away

what I had been taught.”

ARIES

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

Expect some ups and downs this week.

There’s a powerful New Moon in your

transformation zone that could lead to

positive changes. But your ruler Mars

is still reversing through your sign until

Friday night (London time) which can

cause lethargy and lack of motivation.

Try to keep things in perspective. Be

inspired by music legend (and birthday

great) Neil Young. “As you go through

life, you’ve got to see the valleys as well

as the peaks.”

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

The New Moon (in your sign) boosts

your natural charisma and propels you

forward with plenty of purpose. And

the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction magnifies

your ability to connect with other people

in deep and meaningful ways. But

remember – you can choose to be powerful

and passionate or compulsive and

controlling. If you’re a smart Scorpio,

then you’ll choose the path of least resistance

as you channel your energy into

positive and productive projects.

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

GEMINI

MAY 22 TO JUNE 21

CANCER

JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

LEO

JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

Lady Luck is on your side but abstract

ideas must be transformed into practical

projects, and you’ll need the input

of others to get things moving. (And

remember there’s a fine line between

divine dreams and disappointing delusions.)

The current buzz words are

companionship and cooperation, as you

concentrate on the needs of loved ones.

But is a close relationship stuck on autopilot?

The New Moon urges you to reconnect

with each other.

Some vigorous physical exercise will

help you bounce through the week with

extra Gemini gusto and enthusiasm. But

if you don’t communicate clearly on

Monday, then misunderstandings are

likely (especially with a child, teenager

or close friend). Mercury moves into

your sign mid-week, which gives you

the motivation to put ideas into practice.

Whereas the weekend New Moon signals

a fresh start involving health, work

habits or pets.

Jupiter, Pluto and the New Moon shine

a bright spotlight on partnerships of the

romantic, platonic, business and family

variety. You are entering a period of nurturing

old relationships and establishing

new ones. So it’s a wonderful time to focus

on friendships, shared hobbies, joint

ventures and having fun. As writer (and

birthday great) Robert Louis Stevenson

observed “A friend is a gift you give yourself.”

But tread carefully with an impatient

colleague.

Many Lions are in for a lively week, as

the Sun (your power planet) forms fabulous

aspects with Neptune, Pluto and Jupiter.

So it’s time to be the creative, flamboyant

and feisty person you were born

to be. That doesn’t mean there won’t be

problems, challenges or dramas along

the way. But it does mean that your positive

attitude and natural enthusiasm will

bolster your spirits and enhance the

lives of those around you. So prepare to

sparkle and shine!

VIRGO

AUGUST 24 TO SEPTEMBER 23

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

Jupiter and Pluto encourage you to contribute

more of your time and talents

to your local community. Social media

is also favoured as you text, tweet, post,

podcast or publish your ideas to an appreciative

audience. Communicating

your thoughts and feelings in a direct

and honest way will help relationships

move in a positive direction. Aim for a

mental spring-clean on the weekend,

when the New Moon helps you find a

fresh solution to an old problem.

Pluto and Jupiter highlight a house

move, renovation, real estate sale or

family gathering. But you’ll need to be

extra diplomatic with a grumpy loved

one. The weekend New Moon indicates

a major turnaround to do with money

matters or self-esteem issues. Keep an

open mind, as you absorb fresh financial

information or road-test a new fashion

or beauty trend. But remember Libra …

you are lovable for who you are (not what

you look like or how much you earn).

Prosperity planet Jupiter (your ruler)

pairs up with resourceful Pluto in your

finance zone. So some lucky Sagittarians

will score a new job, initiate a

smart business deal or make some extra

money this week. However you’re also

in the mood to spend! Try to show some

restraint, otherwise you’ll go from princess

(or prince) to pauper in a flash. On

the weekend, take the time to relax and

appreciate the power and promise of the

magical New Moon.

This week don’t hesitate to grab opportunities

when they appear. If you

maintain motivation and are passionately

proactive, then your life will move

in promising new directions. With the

New Moon activating your hopes and

wishes zone, it’s also time to review and

re-imagine your goals and aspirations,

especially within a group, class, club or

organisation. But resist the urge to be

possessive of loved ones or controlling

with work colleagues.

EMILY FESZCZUK

Since the release of her 2017 debut

album, Australian singersongwriter

Caitlyn Shadbolt has

been working to polish her popcountry

sound.

Her new album, ‘Stages’, was released on

November 6 and is available to download

and purchase now.

From being a finalist on ‘The X Factor

Australia’, Caitlyn’s first album ‘Songs on my

Sleeve’ hit number one on the ARIA Country

Album Chart.

A former CMC Award winner for Best New

Artist, Caitlyn said her new album highlights

her evolving musical career.

“It feels like I have been working for a lifetime,

but I am only in my twenties, so I am

still learning and working out who I am as

a person and an artist,” Caitlyn told Parra

News.

“‘Stages’ is quite literally about the stages

of my life and the different sides of me – the

bubbly, happy, sappy side but also the more

serious, deep thinker part of me.”

Recording the album socially distanced

during the COVID-19 lockdown, Caitlyn

said it was a welcome distraction.

“I recorded at home just as lockdown hit,

which was a cool experience where I engineered

all my vocals and acoustic guitar,

then sent them to my producer Stuart Stuart

in Brisbane and we collaborated over

the phone,” she said.

“Lockdown was actually a nice opportunity

to take a break from the hustle of the

industry, but it was great to have a creative

project to sink my teeth into and not be

stuck with my thoughts for the whole time.”

Influenced by her musical inspirations,

Caitlyn said the album, which includes her

new single ‘Edge of the Earth’, has a diverse

sound.

“It has that typical pop-country Taylor

Swift sound but then there is also more

mellow acoustic Kacey Musgraves, John

Mayer type of songs,” she said.

“I wrote the single with Sarah Buckley

about being adventurous and quite literally

pushing boundaries until the edge of

the Earth and it has such a fresh, uplifting

sound.”

Caitlyn said she is excited to share the

album with everyone and hopes they can

hear how she has grown in recent years.

“The beautiful thing about country music

is the stories it tells, and I love being able to

share a collection of my thoughts and feelings

with people,” she said.

“I want to share the sides of myself which

have evolved but to also connect with listeners

through the similar emotions we all

experience in life.”

Caitlyn Shadbolt’s album ‘Stages’ was

released on Friday, November 6. Get it

At the movies...

Sequel falls flat

THE CRAFT: LEGACY


1 hour, 34 minutes

EMILY FESZCZUK

If you were like me and loved

the edgy 1996 cult film ‘The Craft’,

you might have had high hopes

for the sequel, especially as it

is produced by horror experts

Blumhouse Productions.

‘The Craft: Legacy’ starts strong

and the continuation story sees

Lily (Cailee Spaeny) and her

mum Helen (Michelle Monaghan)

move to be with her new

boyfriend (David Duchovny).

Lily meets three new friends

with powers and the teenagers

form a coven with their witchcraft

proving deadly.

The basic spell remains the

same, but the magic of the original

seems to be missing even

though there are nods to it

throughout.

Writer and director Zoe Lister-

Jones is progressive with socially

and politically aware characters

but when you must announce

that one of them is transgender, it

feels like you are trying too hard.

There isn’t a lot of spells being

cast or scary scenes for that

matter, rather it deals with more

modern issues of sexuality and

feminism.

If you are a fan of the first film,

you will probably wish the cauldron

didn’t get re-lit.

TV NEWS

I wanted to confess something... a

few weeks ago I predicted ‘SAS Australia’

would be a flop for Channel Seven and

I was wrong. Not only do I think ‘SAS’ is

the show of the year, but it is doing gangbusters

for Seven. It’s already the most

watched show ever on the 7Plus app,

and it’s giving ‘The Block’ a run for its

money on broadcast too. A sneaky tip for

‘SAS’ lovers, if you watch via 7Plus, you

can view an uncensored version of each

episode, which has all the profanity in it.

‘SAS Australia’ airs Monday and Tuesday

nights.

New episodes of ‘Adam Hills: The Last

Leg’ are currently airing on ABC Comedy,

just days after their UK premiere. The

comedian is back in London after being in

lockdown in Melbourne, hosting a virtual

version of the show. ‘The Last Leg’ airs

Tuesday nights at 8.30pm.

Foxtel will be the home for India’s

upcoming tour of Australia. The first

three ODI and three T20 matches, plus an

Australia A v India day-night Tour match

at the SCG from December 11-13, will be

available exclusively on Fox Cricket. The

SATURDAYS 8.30PM

SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, FOX8

NOVEMBER 11 7.30PM JAMIE’S QUICK AND EASY FOOD, 10

channel will also broadcast the upcoming

Test series, which begins on December 17

with a day-night fixture at Adelaide Oval.

Lucy Lawless mystery series ‘My Life

is Murder’ has been renewed for a second

season.

A new season of ‘Jamie’s Quick

and Easy Food’ will premiere on 10 on

Wednesday, November 11 at 7.30pm.

Jamie will bring audiences quick and easy

recipes that take all the stress out of cooking.

With only five ingredients needed to

make these crazy-delicious recipes, Jamie

serves up easy food that will have you set

for summer.

One of the most overrated comedy

shows of all time, ‘Saturday Night Live’,

is back on FOX8 every Saturday night at

8.30pm. While this show is legendary and

has launched countless careers, I know

I’m not the only one that doesn’t find it

funny.

Teen series ‘The Baby-Sitter’s Club’

has been renewed for a second season by

Netflix. The series is based on the popular

book series by Ann M. Martin.

Apple TV+ series ‘Ted Lasso’ has been

given a third season renewal, ahead of the

second season even beginning production.

The series stars Jason Sudeikis as

Ted Lasso, a small-time college football

coach from Kansas hired to coach a professional

soccer team in England, despite

having no experience coaching soccer.

Channel Nine is chasing the Rugby

Australia broadcast rights for 2021.

Double success for Dundas United

NATHAN TAYLOR

Dundas United Recreation

Club are still celebrating

after two of their football

teams enjoyed an extraordinary finish

to their respective seasons last

month.

Dundas United’s U16 Division 3

team not only took out the Minor Premiership

for an outstanding regular

season, but they were also crowned

Grand Champions following a 2-1

win over the Wenty Waratahs on October

17.

Meanwhile, Dundas United’s Youth

team – made up of talented male

players aged 17 to 18-years-old – also

won the Grand Championship, overcoming

arch-rivals Rydalmere FC 3-2

in a thrilling Final.

According to Dundas United Soccer

Competition Secretary Tina Hatchman,

it’s been a decade since the

club, which plays in the Granville &

Districts Soccer Football Association,

have won two Grand Championships

in the same season.

“Our club is very small, only 172

players. This year we had just six

teams in the competition and all

six qualified for the Finals, with two

reaching and winning the Grand Final,”

she told Parra News.

“The club is so very proud of both

teams for becoming Grand Champions.

“We usually lose a lot of kids from

this age group, but these kids were

dedicated and played very well. They

made the club extremely proud.”

Making the occasion even more

special for Hatchman was the fact her

son, Lucas, played a huge role in the

success of both teams this season.

Not only was Lucas Hatchman the

coach of Dundas United’s successful

U16’s team, but he was a player in the

championship-winning Youth team

as well.

“He actually won Coach of the Year

this year because not only did he

coach the U16’s to Grand Final glory,

but he also coached and managed his

own Youth team and got them to a

Grand Final as well,” Hatchman said.

The club will now enjoy the offseason

before doing it all again next

winter.

Dundas United’s Grand Championship-winning U16 Division 3 team celebrate.

Dundas United’s Youth team were also crowned Grand Champions following a thrilling win.
