HONOURING

OUR HISTORY

Parramatta will celebrate some of the

stories that put it on the map with

two iconic public artworks set to be

erected in the heart of the city at Parramatta

Square.

City of Parramatta Council has commissioned

western Sydney-based artists Claire

Healy and Sean Cordeiro, and Indigenous

Australian artist Reko Rennie to create

pieces that embody historic moments in

Parramatta’s history.

Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro’s ‘A Place of

Eels’ piece features an eight-metre, vertical,

highly reflective chrome vintage bus, representing

the 1960’s Leyland Worldmaster bus

that legendary Parramatta Eels coach Jack

Gibson bought his rugby league team in

1981.

The team then went on to win back-to-back

premierships in 1982 and 1983.

The bus was used by the first grade side

for team meetings after their home base at

Cumberland Oval was demolished.

This piece also pays homage to other interesting

aspects of Parramatta’s past, including

the story of 19th century entrepreneur,

'The Flying Pieman', as well as reflections

on North Parramatta's Industrial School

for Girls, and Parramatta's early stories of

Lebanese migration.

LORD

MAYOR’S

MESSAGE

CR BOB

DWYER

Parramatta’s new Aquatic and Leisure

Centre given the green light for

construction

I am excited to announce that the Sydney

Central City Planning Panel has endorsed

Council’s Development Application for

Parramatta’s new state-of-the-art aquatic and

leisure centre. This brings us one-step closer to

constructing the $77 million facility, which will

include three new pools, a water play area, and

premium fitness facilities. Council will announce

the builder early next year, with construction set

to begin in 2021. This project is being co-funded

by the NSW Government, and is expected to

be completed in 2023. I’m sure many of you,

like me, are looking forward to seeing this

project moving forward. To find out more, visit:

staff, and family members, who went head to

head for the winning title. Congratulations to

Mayor Steve Christou and Cumberland City

Council for taking home the winners shield

in this year’s match. It is wonderful to see our

Councillors spending time outdoors getting

to know members of our neighbouring council

through this fun match. I would like to thank our

team captain, Deputy Lord Mayor Cr Michelle

Garrard, as well as everyone else who attended

for an excellent display of sportsmanship and

teamwork. Until next time, Cumberland!

Parramatta recognised as Australia’s

leading Smart City for 2020

I am proud that the City of Parramatta recently

received the Leadership City Award at the third

annual Smart Cities Awards. More than 20

Local Government Areas were in the running

for the award, which recognises organisations

that demonstrate world-leading liveability,

workability and sustainability outcomes through

investment in technology and data solutions.

Council received this award for delivering a

host of innovative projects and technological

solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic,

including Melrose Park Smart Planning for

Climate Responsive Neighbourhoods, the

Parramatta CBD Parking Finder, FloodSmart,

and Storybox. It is an honour to be recognised

by the Smart Cities Council Australia New

Zealand for our commitment to creating a

smarter and future-focused City. I would like

to pay special thanks to Council’s Smart City

Advisory Committee which includes my fellow

Councillors Steven Issa and Sameer Pandey, as

well as Council’s incredible staff members, who

helped make these brilliant initiatives possible.

City of Parramatta announces two new

artworks for the CBD

Last week, City of Parramatta Council was

thrilled to reveal that Parramatta Square will

become the future home of two new Australian

public artworks. These pieces will tell the

story of Parramatta – from our Indigenous

foundations to our sporting culture. Council

was proud to commission two Western Sydneybased

artists Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro, as

well as Indigenous Australian artist Reko Rennie,

to create the bespoke sculptures for our City.

Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro’s A Place of

Eels is an eight-metre, vertical, highly-reflective

chrome vintage bus, representing the bus that

was used by the Parramatta Eels rugby league

team in the early 1980s. Reko Rennie’s Where

Eels Lie Down honours the history of the eel in

Parramatta, through a large-scale sculpture

that represents two eels rising from the ground

and crossing each other as they play.

These artworks will become iconic landmarks

in the Parramatta CBD and provide our

community with a vibrant new meeting spot. It

is anticipated that they will be installed by 2022,

upon completion of the Parramatta Square

public domain.

University heads west

Sydney Uni settles on site for new base, but some are unhappy with plans

NICOLA BARTON

The University of Sydney will call

Parramatta home, as a site for the

new world-class multi-disciplinary

campus is confirmed.

The campus is set to be located within

the Westmead Health and Innovation

District at the Historic Cumberland

Hospital grounds in Parramatta North,

adjacent to the Westmead hospitals.

The State Government and the University

of Sydney have officially signed off on

a framework agreement marking the next

step in negotiations, which commenced

back in 2018.

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism

and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said the

agreement was an important step for the

long-term future of the Westmead Health

and Innovation District and its role as one

of the largest health, education, research

and training precincts in Australia.

“A globally recognised university

campus in the central river city at the core

of the Westmead Health and Innovation

District will drive innovation and catalyse

future growth, ensuring we become a

An artist’s impression of the new University of Sydney campus.

world leader in lifelong education and

research partnerships that save lives and

cure diseases,” he said.

Mr Ayres paid tribute to the vision of the

outgoing Vice-Chancellor and Principal

of the University of Sydney, Dr Michael

Spence, to expand the University’s presence

in western Sydney.

Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education

and Parramatta MP Geoff Lee said the

agreement was a huge win for Parramatta

and western Sydney.

“The commitment by University of

Sydney today will transform the precinct

by offering a comprehensive suite of

university courses beyond health studies,”

he said.

Pending final agreement around the size

and timings of the campus development,

the university hopes to attract more than

25,000 students and 2,500 staff by 2055

and provide affordable student and staff

accommodation.

Executive Director of the Western Sydney

Business Chamber, David Borger said

“it will be a boon for the kids of western

Sydney to be able to access a world-class

university campus in the region rather

than make the historic pilgrimage to

Camperdown”.

However, given the historic value of the

site, members of the North Parramatta

Resident Action Group (NPRAG) are

concerned about the impact this scale of

development will have.

“NPRAG are disappointed the government

has not included the community on

future use of Parramatta’s most significant

Indigenous and convict heritage grounds,”

NPRAG spokesperson Suzette Meade said.

“You can be sure the next announcement

will be thousands of high density residential

towers labelled ‘student accommodation’.”

A Construction, Forestry, Maritime,

Mining and Energy Union green ban was

placed on the entire botanic heritage site

back in 2015 against unsupported development.

Holding on to the best of 2020

As 2020 winds down, what aspects of

this extraordinary year do we want to

hold onto? For me, it’s been rediscovering

Sydney’s bushland, public parks,

walking trails and open spaces – and the

miraculous role they play to keep us fit,

happy and healthy.

Cooped up for hours during lockdown,

I’d often emerge from my flat as the sun

set to witness a beautiful sight. The banks

of the Parramatta River, just down from

the Parramatta ferry wharf, were teeming

with life.

Kids tore by on tiny scooters. Friends

picnicked on the grass. Couples of all

ages, religions and cultural backgrounds

shyly held hands.

Confronted by bewildering images of

death and suffering on our TV screens,

there was comfort in retreating to the familiar.

Fresh air, our own neighbourhood

– and a reminder we are not alone.

I have five nephews and nieces under

the age of 10. Whenever I visit them in

Adelaide and dangle a trip to the playground,

they go berserk. It was the same

for adults during COVID-19. With gyms

closed, bootcamps banned and team

sports off limits, we craved the outdoors

just like children.

So this year, I’ve fallen back in love with

Index

News..............................................1-22

Entertainment ..................23-33

Auto...........................................37-38

Parramatta Park. Each Saturday I’m part

of a group that does an early morning jog,

at least in theory – with a standing invitation

to meet for breakfast later in the

likely event I sleep in!

I’ve meandered along the river in both

directions. Previously a Parramatta

Parkrun regular, this year I’ve driven to

George Kendall Riverside Park at night

and walked or run the track more times

than I can count – while listening to

music, getting through phone calls and

sending texts.

Whenever life got difficult, a sure-fire

way to rejuvenate was to enjoy the route

in bright sunshine and talk shop with a

friend.

Sydney has its harbour, headlands and

botanic gardens. The Blue Mountains

and beaches are barely an hour’s drive.

But locals know the Parramatta region

also has its gems – from Third Settlement

Reserve at Winston Hills, to Lane Cove

National Park, to the Darling Mills Creek

where I used to bush-bash as a kid.

Some good progress has been made

to enhance our city’s green arteries and

lungs. This includes recent foreshore

upgrades at Rydalmere and the City of

Parramatta’s excellent face-lift of John

Wearne Reserve in Carlingford – complete

with zoo sculptures and a skatepark.

The NSW Government is also examining

a shared pathway from Parramatta to the

Opera House.

Yet as areas like Westmead, Wentworthville,

Carlingford and Epping deal with

growing population density, nobody

could deny there is more work to do.

In particular, the Parramatta CBD has

been allowed to wither into a concrete

wasteland with negligible tree canopy

and less than 1 per cent accessible green

space.

That’s why I think it’s vital we not only

preserve Willow Grove but unlock its gardens

into a cherished “pocket park” for

the community. And why the Western

Sydney Business Chamber’s latest idea to

open up the historic Lancer Barracks defence

base into a new public square has

strong merit.

It’ll need Canberra’s support. But living

nearby, unless one escapes to the river,

there’s nothing but high-rise and the

sound of jackhammers – and the barracks

is a barrier between people living on the

east of the train station and the rest of

Parramatta.

Surely, the pandemic should have

taught us. Let’s look for opportunities to

give people back their neighbourhood.

Artworks set to inspire

Talking point: Our city’s history to be honoured in Parramatta Square

Story continued from » p. 1

Reko Rennie’s ‘Where Eels Lie Down’

honours the history of the eel in

Parramatta through a large-scale work

representative of two eels rising from the

ground and crossing each other as they

play.

Visitors will be able to walk under,

around and through sections of the

painted aluminium and granite artwork.

Lord Mayor Bob Dwyer said the phenomenal

pieces would put Parramatta on the

map in a new way.

“These striking pieces tell the story of

Parramatta, from our Indigenous foundations

to our sporting culture and will

become iconic landmarks of this great

city,” he said.

Parramatta has been a gathering place

for thousands of years, and soon these

phenomenal artworks by Australian

artists will become new meeting spots in

the heart of the CBD.”

The works were selected from more than

110 submissions, from all over the world,

by a panel comprising representatives

from the arts, design, and local government

sectors.

Incredible new artworks will soon take pride of place in Parramatta Square.

Councillors Steven Issa and Dr Patricia

Prociv, who were on the selection panel,

thanked all those who made submissions

and congratulated the winning artists on

their proposals.

“There is no doubt these works will

provide a ‘wow’ factor to Parramatta

Square and become a local attraction,” Cr

Issa said.

“Both of these artworks will give a voice

to our local communities and create a

sense of pride in place,” Cr Prociv added.

The works are set to be installed by

2022, upon completion of the Parramatta

Square public domain.

What do you think of the new artworks?

Look out for each other

Key messages released as State Government fears a wild summer ahead

NICOLA BARTON

After a devastating start to summer

saw the destruction of one Northmead

home and a beloved Epping

cafe, Parramatta MP Geoff Lee is urging

locals to be prepared this warm season.

Parramatta is no stranger to the sweltering

temperatures of summer heat waves,

which make for a perfect storm for some

potentially devastating fires.

But as we enter the holiday season, Dr

Lee says it’s not just our bushfire survival

plans we must prepare but reminded residents

to not drive through floodwater and

swim between the flags to ensure this silly

season is enjoyed safely.

“Being aware and prepared is everyone’s

responsibility, whether you’re at home, at

work or away on holidays,” he said.

Dr Lee said summer is a particularly busy

time of year for all emergency services and

everyone is urged to put safety first.

“Our community is well protected by

our emergency services, but we can assist

them by taking the time to get prepared,”

he said.

Baulkham Hills MP and Minister for

Fires are a common part of Australia’s summers.

Police and Emergency Services David

Elliott said being prepared can save lives.

“Aussie summers are iconic, but they can

also be tragic,” he said.

“Last year, we had a horror bushfire

season. This year, we’re expecting a wet

and wild summer but bushfires and

storms are not the only threats we face.

“I urge you to use the start of summer as

a start of a conversation with your friends

and families about being prepared for

seasonal hazards; especially this year, as

experts warn of a La Niña summer.”

The State Government suggests residents

follow five simple steps to help ensure they

are prepared for what summer may bring

Parramatta MP Geoff Lee.

risk, planning for what you’ll do, preparing

Mays Hill: Police searching for

man after unprovoked attack

Police are searching for the perpetrators

of a random unprovoked attack in

Mays Hill recently.

About 4.15pm on Wednesday, December

2, a 25-year-old Mays Hill man left

his workplace in Wigram Street, Harris

Park on foot.

After turning left onto Church Street,

a small silver vehicle sounded its horn

and came to a stop outside 6-8 Lennox

Street with two unknown males exiting

the vehicle.

One approached the man and punched

him to the right side of his face before

returning to the vehicle and driving off,

leaving the victim injured on the side of

the road.

Police and ambulance attended a short

time later and the man was taken to

hospital for treatment.

Anyone with information about

the incident is encouraged to contact

Parramatta Police Station on 9633 0799,

or alternatively Crime Stoppers on 1800

A Toongabbie local will face court

recently.

About 10.35pm on Saturday, November

28, police stopped a blue Toyota Corolla

at the intersection of Marsden Street and

the Great Western Highway, Parramatta

for the purpose of a random breath test.

The 31-year-old Toongabbie driver

returned a positive reading.

The driver was arrested and conveyed

to Parramatta Police Station, where

further breath analysis returned a midrange

reading.

The driver had their licence suspended

and was issued with a court attendance

notice for ‘drive with mid-range PCA’.

They are due to appear before the

Out of school hours service

cut due to financial issues

NICOLA BARTON

Cumberland City Council has

announced it will cease its out of

school hours (OOSH) service for

Pendle Hill Public School at the end of

Term 1 in 2021.

The news comes after a difficult year

for the council, as it experiences the full

financial impact of COVID-19.

Currently around 25 families use the

service, which Council has been providing

for a fee.

Council’s General Manager, Hamish

McNulty said the decision to withdraw

the service was due to the low utilisation

rates compared to

the capacity of the

service.

“Council’s

financial

situation

is wellknown

and there is currently a high level

of subsidy for these services,” he said.

“The OOSH at Pendle Hill is currently at

15 per cent utilisation in the morning and

30 per cent in the afternoon. Given the

costs involved in providing this service,

we don’t think Council is best placed to

continue delivering the service.”

Mr McNulty assured the service would

still be available in the future.

“We understand that the public school

will offer the OOSH service to another

provider within the next three months

and Council will continue to assist the

school during this transition period,” he

said.

“I want to thank Council staff who have

been providing the OOSH

service for Pendle Hill

Public School and

for working

so hard for

parents.”

The OOSH service at Pendle Hill Public School is being wound back.

Volunteers doing their bit to help the community.

NICOLA BARTON

The City of Parramatta Bushcare

program is calling all animal

lovers, creatives or even just those

with a green thumb to join in on their

fun holiday activities.

Run by The Social Canvas, a creative

social enterprise focusing on art and

design, ecology, health and heritage

in the Parramatta area, the bushcare

program welcomes volunteers from all

ages for a series of hands-on events.

The project is overseeing the cultivation

of numerous native plants that will grow

to protect and house native animals in

Old Toongabbie.

Volunteers will get hands-on experience

with weeding and planting of the

original understory seedlings for the

purpose of boosting the habitat for the

future of the site’s ecology.

Specifically, the project aims to expand

safe homes for an assortment of species.

Local artists are encouraged to participate

in council-approved mural paintings

on areas such as culverts, bringing a

new form of vibrance to the reserve.

Further support for this initiative has

seen other local organisations such as

PlasticFree Parramatta conduct creek

cleaning sessions, helping restore this

area for the native flora, fauna and people.

The next bushcare event will be held

on Sunday, December 27 at the Gallery

Gardens Reserve, Old Toongabbie.

PCYC hopes for home

Important community asset wants to move to Bankwest Stadium site

NICOLA BARTON

After being left in the dark by the

State Government for years, PCYC

Parramatta is hopeful its plans for

a $17 million club at Bankwest Stadium

will be realised in 2021.

The club sold its former premises for $31

million back in 2016, on the basis that it

would eventually relocate to a site zoned

for community-use at the new stadium.

However, it is said the promise dates

back to when Barry O’Farrell was Premier.

Shadow Minister for Sport, Lynda Voltz

says nothing is standing in the way for

the lease approval, especially after the

recent amendment to the NSW Sporting

Venues Authorities Bill, which ensures

any proposal for residential or commercial

hotel development must go through the

Parliament.

“There’s nothing stopping the government

from handing over that site to the

Parramatta PCYC; absolutely nothing,”

she said.

“What’s stopping the government unless

it is some alternative plan?”

Over the past month the Parramatta

Shadow Sports Minister Lynda Voltz at Bankwest Stadium.

region has seen a string of youth-related

violent crimes, including most recently

the stabbing of a student by a classmate at

Arthur Phillip High School.

PCYC Parramatta President John Chedid

said incidents, like these, are a timely

reminder of what the PCYC is here for –

keeping youth crime rates down by engaging

with young people.

“That must tell the government something

of the great importance of having

a fully resourced club that can cater for

more youth to minimise the trouble and

antisocial behaviour that sadly occurs in

our city,” he said.

“In light of what’s happened with

COVID-19, one of the key things that we

identified is our youth, in a time of crisis,

needed a club that they can call home.

“I just would have hoped that our new

club would have been redeveloped by now

to cater for more youth.”

PCYC Parramatta at its temporary

George Street site sees around 300 to 400

young people attend each day. Mr Chedid

said the current size of the space they are

leasing is far too small.

A Venues NSW spokesperson said the

plans are in their final stages.

“Venues NSW is finalising planning for

the Bankwest Stadium site which has

been set aside for community use,” the

spokesperson said.

“We continue to work with key stakeholders

to deliver economic and community

benefits for the people of NSW.”

Hub “not the right fit”

Business concept welcome, but history buffs say location isn’t appropriate

NICOLA BARTON

Plans for a business start-up hub

to operate out of one of the country’s

last intact convict-buildings

are pushing ahead, despite advice and

consultation from opposing descendants.

The startup hub will be the second of

its kind in the state and is set to activate

the North Parramatta Heritage Core,

comprising the Female Factory and other

significant historical treasures.

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism

and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said

the Western Sydney Startup Hub project

would cement investment, technology

and innovation as the centerpiece of the

State Government’s COVID-19 recovery

strategy.

“This new startup hub will be an

exciting step in activating the historic

Parramatta North Heritage Core and is set

to provide 1,500 square metres of affordable

co-working space and programs to

support western Sydney startups, scaleups

and businesses,” he said.

“It will form part of the revitalised

Parramatta North Heritage Core and will

honour our past while preparing us for the

future, by providing the space to create the

jobs of tomorrow.

“It will draw on the successes of the

Sydney Startup Hub in the Sydney CBD,

which has already housed almost 500

companies, generated more than $280

million in investment and created more

than 1,000 jobs.”

But after extensive calls for the space

to be transformed into a museum that

celebrates the rich history of the precinct,

members of the Parramatta Female

Factory Friends group say a hub that has

no correlation to the site’s history is not the

right fit.

President Gay Hendriksen said whilst

they think a business hub is a good idea,

there’s plenty of “more appropriate” vacant

office space around western Sydney.

“We are all for for job creation and a

business hub, it’s a fabulous idea, just not

for the Female Factory,” she said.

“The only things that should be in the

footprint are ones that are connected to

the Female Factory history.

“To me this is government driven and not

listening to the community.”

The Western Sydney Startup Hub is

and Lyn Watkins are concerned about the site’s future. Photo: Melissa Stevens.

expected to open in late 2021 following

a sensitive restoration of the circa 1876

Hospital Spinal Range Building and circa

1892 Kitchen Block.

Expressions of interest to operate and

manage the Western Sydney Startup Hub

will be open to respondents until December

18.

Epping loses character

Plan for more local trees welcome, but some say it’s too little, too late

NICOLA BARTON

New funding to plant more trees in

Parramatta is too little too late,

say the locals whose cries to save

countless mature trees from development

fell on deaf ears for years.

It is no secret that western Sydney heat

is becoming a problem that must be

addressed, with urban heat researches

putting overdevelopment to blame.

The State Government has recently

announced its $10 million ‘Greening Our

City’ program, which will provide grants

to 30 councils and two partner organisations

across two funding streams – Cooler

Suburbs and Green Innovations.

Under the Cooler Suburbs stream, 29

local councils will receive more than $8

million in funding, supporting 39 tree

planting projects that will add more than

40,000 trees to Greater Sydney.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the

program would help reach her target to

plant one million trees across Greater

Sydney by 2022.

“This fantastic program will result in

more than 40,000 trees being planted in

Margaret McCartney says Epping is being changed considerably by development.

the ground and will also see exciting innovation

projects that protect native species

and help to green urban spaces,” she said.

Planning and Public Spaces Minister

Rob Stokes said planting more trees would

bring enormous environmental benefit

while making public spaces attractive.

“Our city is framed by parks – we know

how valuable tree cover is for lowering

heat, providing shade and enhancing our

neighbourhoods,” he said.

Epping resident and member of the

Epping Civic Trust Tree Subcommittee,

Margaret McCartney said whilst more tree

planting is always welcomed, it doesn’t

compensate for the countless mature

trees lost to development, particularly in

Epping, over the past decade.

“These trees are being removed every

week and it’s really upsetting, so whilst

we welcome any new planting, it’s just not

enough for the amount that is lost,” she

said.

“A lot of us have lived in Epping for a long

time and the reason why we came here is

because we wanted to live in a green, leafy

suburb; it’s been distressing to see that

lost.

“All the old homes are replaced with

apartment blocks; you can feel the heat

and we’re losing the character in the

process.”

Ms McCartney said a program must be

implemented by council to ensure proper

maintenance and monitoring.

Recently Parramatta City Councillor

Sameer Pandey put forward a motion

asking for a report that looks at the council’s

strategy for improving tree protection,

canopy increase in the CBD and ways to

cool the city.

This sparked a hot debate, dividing the

council and was eventually shut down.

Art raises money

for good causes

NICOLA BARTON

Some of the country’s most talented

creatives were recognised at the

inaugural Carlingford Community

Art Show recently.

Organised by the Rotary Club of Carlingford,

the show supported the arts industry

as well as domestic violence services.

Proceeds are to be donated to the

Parramatta Mission, which provides

support for men and women affected by

domestic violence and Grace’s Place, a

residential trauma recovery centre being

built at Doonside for children who are

affected by homicide of family members.

More than 400 incredible artworks were

submitted to the online art show with 50

per cent of entries from NSW, 40 per cent

from Victoria and five per cent each from

South Australia and Queensland.

The online show came as a great relief to

artists who had been unable to show their

work this year due to COVID-19.

Well-known Australian artist Ken Done

volunteered his time to judge the four

award categories which included works

on paper, traditional, contemporary or

Indigenous and student work.

“The standard of the work was really

good and it is such a good cause for

Parramatta Mission and Grace’s Place,”

Mr Done said.

Rotary Club President Bob O’Shea

opened the show and said they hope to

make this an annual event.

“The art show was set up to help the art

sector get their art out into the community

as when the COVID-19 pandemic hit there

was nowhere for artists to display their

works for sale,” he said.

“This gives the artists a chance to showcase

their art with a chance to win a prize

and an opportunity to sell their works

online. The art show also gave our Rotary

Club the opportunity to raise some funds

for two worthwhile causes.”

Adrian Neill won the works on paper

category for his piece ‘The Algerians’, Di

Bresciani won for her traditional piece

‘Botanic Gardens Sketch’, Otto Fischer was

the Contemporary & Indigenous Category

winner with his piece ‘When?’, and Alyssa

Seckinger-Crow won for her student piece

titled ‘Brilliantly Alive’.

All artworks are available for sale to the

public from www.carlingfordcommunityartshow.com.au

until Friday, December

18.

CHEER

NICOLA BARTON

Aussie music royalty, Guy Sebastian

will join some of the

country’s biggest stars for an

Parramatta Lord Mayor Bob Dwyer said

the concert would bring great joy to the region

after a difficult year.

“It’s incredible to see some of the finest

voices in Australia bringing much needed

Christmas cheer into homes across the

country,” he said.

“Council is proud to support this wonderful

cause, particularly at the end of such a

difficult year.”

Whilst the concert is free, viewers are encouraged

to make a donation to The Sebastian

Foundation.

The charity, founded by Guy in 2013 assists

those who have experienced domestic

Guy said the donations would be put

towards vital programs run by the

foundation.

“We can’t wait to bring together

some of the finest artists in Australia

for a fun evening of carols

while also raising money for

programs that will really make

a difference to the mental

health of adolescents,” he

said.

homes and give a few dollars

to help someone who

has been doing it particularly

tough this year.”

MUST DO

Ring Them Bells and enjoy Liza for Christmas

In the most fun way to cap off the most crazy of years, Trevor Ashley will return as Liza in a brand new Christmas show, ‘Ring Them Bells: A Very

Liza Xmas’. Join Ms Minnelli as she stumbles her way through a fabulously festive catalogue of songs, with smatterings of mistletoe and lashings

of eggnog. Pull on your red sequins to see it in person or buy a digital ticket to watch it online. It is on at Riverside Theatre in Parramatta on Saturday,

December 19 at 7.30pm. Tickets are from $15. To book or for more information call 8839 3399 or visit www.riversideparramatta.com.au.

A new game show hosted by Andy

Lee is coming to 10 next year. ‘The Cube’,

which is based on a UK format, sees players

placed in a small, enclosed 4m x 4m x

4m Perspex cube, to take on deceivingly

simple tasks. From throwing to catching,

estimating to balancing, memorising to

reacting, contestants have nowhere to

go and nowhere to hide once inside The

Cube. $250,000 in prize money will be up

for grabs when filming gets underway in

January.

New Channel Seven mini golf series

‘Holey Moley’ is expected to premiere in

the week of January 31.

With the royals all the rage at the moment

thanks to ‘The Crown’, a two-part

UK special premiered on History this

week. ‘Royals in Wartime’ reveals how

the House of Windsor risked life and

limb to help the Commonwealth through

wartime.

US magic series ‘Penn & Teller: Fool

Us’ has been renewed for an eighth

season. Hosted by actress Alyson Hannigan,

the series sees aspiring magicians

JANUARY 31

HOLEY MOLEY, SEVEN

2021 THE CUBE, 10

performing their best trick to US duo

Penn & Teller. Anyone who succeeds

wins the right to perform in their show in

Las Vegas. ‘Penn & Teller: Fool Us’ airs on

ABC Comedy and Netflix.

Foxtel has announced a new 10-part

local drama series ‘The Twelve’, set

around a murder jury. Based on a Belgian

series of the same name, ‘The Twelve’

tells of 12 ordinary people who are selected

for jury duty in a murder trial as traumatising

as it is controversial, in which a

woman stands accused of killing a child.

Behind the façade of their anonymity,

these 12 ordinary people bring with them

their own histories. Lives that are as complex

as the trial, full of fractured dreams,

shameful secrets, hope, fears, personal

trauma and prejudice. Through the

multiple lenses of these jurors, we see the

fragility and imbalances of the law, and

the chaotic and flawed way we attempt to

determine justice in our society. Shooting

will commence in mid-2021.

An Australian version of ‘Celebrity

Gogglebox’ is coming to LifeStyle and 10

in 2021. As long as producers cast it well,

it should be a hit for both channels.

With many people likely stuck at

home on New Year’s Eve, the ABC (unfortunately)

will once again be the place

to catch all your New Year’s Eve festivities.

The ABC will screen events hosted

by Zan Rowe and Charlie Pickering, with

music from both Sydney and Melbourne,

while Rove McManus, Kiki Masella and

Chenelle Carr will host a special for the

kids. It all kicks off on Thursday, December

31 at 8.30pm.

At the movies...

Festive flick with a twist

HAPPIEST SEASON


1 hour, 42 minutes

parra news » Tuesday, December 15, 2020

EMILY FESZCZUK

Planning to propose to your girlfriend

at an annual family Christmas

dinner is a lot of pressure, especially

when they don’t know you’re gay.

Welcome to the premise of the new

festive rom com, ‘Happiest Season’,

out just in time for the holidays.

When Abby (Kristen Stewart) finds

out that Harper (Mackenzie Davis)

has kept their relationship a secret,

she starts to question her girlfriend’s

intentions.

Obviously, the big point of difference

in this movie to traditional

festive tales is that the leads are a

lesbian couple.

Despite Stewart’s past awkward

performances, she seemed comfortable

and in love on screen, even if her

co-lead is a little less easy to warm to.

Following the typical genre formula,

the movie does delve into deeper

things which gives it a fresh take.

With the storyline featuring sibling

rivalry and trying not to ruin Christmas,

any audience can relate.

A highlight was the strong supporting

cast with co-writer Mary Holland,

Aubrey Plaza and Schitt’s Creek’s

Daniel Levy providing the laugh-outloud

moments.

It might not be a film that will

stick with you forever, but it has a

worthy place in the festive favourites

category.

See this movie at... PARRAMATTA www.eventcinemas.com.au

SUV gets sporty boost

Affordable and very stylish: Toyota’s C-HR gets an impressive makeover

NATHAN TAYLOR

Toyota’s stylish C-HR SUV has

received a sporty boost as the first

model in Australia to receive the

GR Sport makeover.

Inspired by Toyota’s performancefocused

GR models, the new GR Sport

variant elevates the front-drive C-HR

GXL, adding a hybrid powertrain as well

as dynamic design elements, a sportier

suspension and 19-inch alloy wheels.

The new C-HR GR Sport has arrived in

dealerships, priced from $37,651.

Toyota’s in-house performance division

TOYOTA GAZOO Racing has injected its

passion into the vehicle, starting with an

aggressive sports body kit that sets it apart

from the rest of the C-HR family.

The front design, reminiscent of the GR

Yaris, incorporates a more powerful look

with a squared front bumper featuring an

aerodynamic lip, a bold lower grille, thick

horizontal bar and revised fog lamp bezels

that sit lower than on the standard C-HR.

Sporty upgrades extend to exclusive

19-inch dark smoked alloy wheels with

225/45 tyres, high-grade LED lighting

front and rear, and piano black finish for

the rear lip spoiler, mirror caps and door

garnishes.

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales

and Marketing, Sean Hanley, said the

C-HR GR Sport delivers an even more

compelling, youthful and spirited appeal

to the distinctive SUV.

Parramatta skipper gets his chance

NATHAN TAYLOR

Parramatta cricket captain Nick

Bertus’ Big Bash career is officially

underway after he was called into

the Sydney Sixers squad as cover for

Australian Test off-spinner Nathan Lyon.

The versatile wicketkeeper and batsman,

who made his Sheffield Shield and One Day

(List A) debuts for the NSW Blues last year,

has been a prolific run-scorer in Grade

cricket over the years but had yet to play in

the Big Bash.

At 27, Bertus could have been forgiven to

thinking he had missed his chance in the

BBL and admitted to being surprised when

astute Sixers coach Greg Shipperd called

him out of the blue recently to check on his

availability.

“It was fairly late one night when Shippy

rang me,” Bertus said.

“It was a bit of a surprise. A bit of shock but

a lot of excitement and eagerness for it all

to start.

“Having never been in the BBL before but

having played First Class and List A I just

wanted an opportunity.

“The Sixers have been quite strong for a

long time and it hasn’t been easy to crack

into. To get that opportunity is the main

thing.”

Bertus can bat anywhere in the order and

also provides the Sixers with wicketkeeping

cover for rising superstar Josh Philippe,

the Player of the Match in last summer’s

triumphant BBL Final.

“It helps being versatile,” Bertus said.

“I can bat at the top or anywhere near the

middle.

“Being able to ‘keep gives me a further

string to my bow. It doesn’t bother me if I’m

anywhere in the field or ‘keeping. Just to be

given an opportunity.”

Bertus said he had several conversations

with best mate and Sixers star Sean Abbott,

who himself will miss the opening month

of the Big Bash season following his call

up to the Australian Test squad, about

patiently waiting for a chance in the BBL.

“He was obviously really excited and

happy for me when I told him I was going to

be with the Sixers,” Bertus said.

“He’s done really well in the last year

and we have talked about opportunity. He

said ‘if you get in you know you’ll be good

enough to do well’. Now I have to work hard

and take any opportunity that comes my

way.”

The BBL season is now underway.

Nick Bertus has been given a chance by the Sydney Sixers in the BBL.
