A Message from Mayor Steve Christou

Mayor Steve Christou with store manager Matt Cavanagh cutting the ribbon at the new Woolworths Metro in Granville.

Granville revitalisation takes shape

The revitalisation of Granville is pushing ahead in

leaps and bounds. On Tuesday, I was invited to

cut the ribbon at the new Woolworths Metro in

the Granville Place development, just 50m from

the train station. They’ve recruited a team of 65

from the local area and the store has sustainability

features including shading the fridges at night

to reduce electricity. It’s in a fantastic new

complex with specialty stores and cafes to service

commuters and residents in the apartments above.

It’s just 250m to council’s Swim Centre and The

Granville Centre, so it’s in a perfect location.

We’re starting to see the fruits of council’s labour to

work with private industry to develop Granville into

a fresh urban hub with all the trimmings. I’m still

advocating to the state government to reinstate

express trains from Granville to the city which I

believe is a critical piece of the puzzle to build a

connected and vibrant Granville. I call upon our

local state members to remain present and put

the needs of this electorate above others. At a

minimum, our residents deserve that level

of service.

Mayor Steve Christou with, from left, Lyn Hall from Trolley

Tracker, Lisa McNish and Tracy Nichols from Woolworths.

Wherefore art thou

Service NSW?

Tackling illegal trolley

dumping

It’s more than two years since the state

government promised a Service NSW Centre in

Merrylands, to replace the RMS centre that was

removed - we’re still waiting. I’ve followed this up

with the state government (September 2019 and

July 2020), enquiring as to when the promised

Centre will be delivered. I’ve been ignored.

Our community should be able to access a

Service NSW Centre for basic requests like

re-registering their car or renewing their drivers

license, without having to drive 20-30 minutes

to reach the nearest centre. It is important

that this Council continues to show strong

leadership and that we continue to hold the NSW

Government accountable for this failed promise.

We have offered space in council’s new Granville

Administration Building - but no response on

that either. I will write to the Premier of NSW

and Minister for Customer Service seeking their

commitment to deliver the Service NSW Centre.

I will also write our local state members asking

for their support to significantly pick up their

activities on this very important issue affecting

our local community. I call upon our local state

members to remain present and put the needs

of this electorate above others at all times. At

a minimum, our residents deserve that level of

service. Scan the QR code to sign the

petition now.

Mayor Steve Christou met Mint Innovation CEO and

co-founder Will Barker. Mayor Christou holds a solid gold

piece made from materials extracted from e-waste.

Welcome Mint Innovation

I’m excited to welcome Mint Innovation to

Sydney for their first biorefinery in Australia.

Our business engagement staff have worked

closely with Mint to help them find a suitable

property at Smithfield where they will extract

metals like copper, iron, tin and gold from

e-waste. They crush circuit boards from old

mobile phones and computers to extract the

metals, offering “green” recycled metals back

to the market with a lower carbon footprint,

reducing the need for new metals to be

mined. We’re happy to be home to their first

Australian plant, which will initially employ

25-30 people. They aim to open next year.

It has been well advertised that at Cumberland

City Council we have been on a trolley campaign

where we collect and crush abandoned shopping

trolleys that have not been picked up by local

retailers.

Cumberland City Council is not a ghetto and we

will never tolerate this kind of behaviour. To date,

we have collected over 2000 trolleys from our

streets. This hard line approach has now started

to pay dividends as Council was approached by

one of the major retailers willing to work with

Council to address this problem.

I would like to thank Woolworths for coming

together with Council where positive discussions

were held regarding a commitment to fulfil

community responsibilities. Woolworths have

given a commitment to Council that they will start

taking the matter seriously and improve their

efforts within the local area.

I hope that other retailers will start to take

this matter seriously and join us in eliminating

illegal dumping. At the moment, we collect

the trolleys and notify the owners who have

28 days to collect them and pay the impound

fees. If they are not collected, they are crushed

and recycled. Woolworths is the only retailer

taking the problem seriously and collecting their

trolleys from us. We look forward to making more

progress in this area to ensure our areas are clean

and green. I’ll keep you updated.

Important op-shop needs new location due to Sydney Metro construction

NICOLA BARTON

The clock is ticking for the Homicide

Victims Support Group (HVSG) to

relocate its ‘New Leaf’ op-shop,

with the not-for-profit ordered to vacate

to make way for Metro West construction.

The group, first established in 1993 by

parents of murder victims Anita Cobby

and Ebony Simpson, opened its Maquarie

Street op-shop in Janurary this year.

The purpose of the shop is to fund operations

of Grace’s Place, the first residential

trauma centre for children and families

impacted by homicide, which is currently

under construction in Doonside.

Expected to be completed by the end

of this year, Grace’s Place, named after

Anita Cobby’s mother Grace Lynch, will

be run by HVSG and provide critical

support and counselling services.

HVSG President Rob Taylor, whose son

Simon was fatally stabbed, knows first

hand the life changing impact the HVSG

has on victim’s families.

He says business has been booming

at the op-shop since opening, with the

money set to make a huge difference.

Rob Taylor says the op-shop has been a major success. Photo: Melissa Stevens.

But now, with a deadline to vacate by

June 30, he fears for the road ahead.

“It is very important that we can

continue with this business,” he said.

“It’s not only helping people clean out

their wardrobes but is helping our volunteers,

95 per cent of which are made up of

homicide victims’ families.

“Working in the shop is bringing them

back out, making an enormous difference

in so many lives.”

The group currently occupies 64

Macquarie Street, the historic circa 1842

Kia Ora also known as Houison’s Cottage

rent-free, thanks to the generosity of the

landlord.

Sydney Metro will drill 38 metres

underneath the site to make way for the

Parramatta Metro Station.

“We haven’t had any success, we just

don’t have the money to be competitive

with all the other relocating businesses

looking for new shop fronts,” Mr Taylor

said.

A Sydney Metro spokesperson said they

have the appropriate measures in place

to ensure the historic building is not

damaged during construction and said

they are working to assist the HVSG.

“Through the ongoing design and

development process, Sydney Metro is

committed to protecting heritage items

during construction,” the spokesperson

said.

“Sydney Metro has advised the group

via face to face meetings and numerous

phone calls that they are entitled to

apply for compensation from the Valuer

General.

“Sydney Metro recognises the importance

of the work this group does and will

continue to work with them to support

them through this process.”

The HVSG are calling for community

assistance to help them find its op-shop

a new home.

If you can help, please call 8833 8400.

Labor gives itself fighting chance

Chris Minns is the new Labor leader in

NSW, with Michael Daley’s withdrawal

from the race on Friday ensuring the party

can unite rather than watch as a bitter

period of in-fighting played out.

Labor has plenty to do before the 2023

election, including finding its feet in

western Sydney, where it has lost significant

ground in recent times despite Jodi

McKay’s best efforts.

Very few outside of political nerds have

probably heard of Chris Minns.

He has just under two years to change

that and give Labor a shot at power for the

first time in more than a decade.

Travel................................................23

A few years ago, while on holiday, I

bought business shirts from a tailor in

Hoi An, in central Vietnam. Hoang Kim

offered an amazing choice of colours and

fabrics. Best of all they were breathable

and light, perfect for the tropics but also

a humid Sydney summer.

Already on a short schedule, I had a narrow

window to pick up my order after being

fitted two days previously.

Right on cue, a vicious thunderstorm

cut power to the entire village. But the

staff were still waiting in the dark for me

to arrive.

We tried on the clothes by candlelight

and they were perfect. The staff wrapped

them, farewells were exchanged and I still

made my flight.

Back in the men’s section of a Sydney

department store recently, a different experience

entirely. Piles of items discarded

mile-high in dingy dressing rooms. Nobody

there to help. And everything five

sizes too big, as if all the world’s unloved

XXX-Large jeans, jackets and tops had

been consigned here as they couldn’t be

sold anywhere else.

Shopping in Sydney has come a long

way from the time when we used to wander

down the main street, stopping in for

a chat at the butcher, baker and greengrocer.

The likes of Westfield and the big

retail chains are dominant. They’ve displaced

most old arcades and malls, swallowed

up huge volumes of pedestrian

traffic and why not? Families can park

their cars for hours and complete their

purchases all under one roof.

Online shopping has only loaded the

dice even more against traditional retailers.

Even before the pandemic, we thought

nothing to try and return items from Amazon,

The Iconic or Popcherry on a whim.

But this trend is now super-charged. Very

soon, none of us will even go outdoors –

just sit on the couch ordering tomorrow’s

groceries while tucking into today’s Uber

Eats.

This week, at Uniqlo in Pitt Street Mall,

I was surprised to return and find the

checkout system had changed. It is now

the ultimate frictionless experience. You

simply drop your items into a collection

zone and by some kind of magic, the

price tags automatically scan.

Yet at the other extreme, I believe there

is still a yearning for personalised service

and brands that tempt us to linger. Witness

the growth of Parramatta’s retro barber

shops.

You can’t order an ice-cream online –

Staying Healthy.......................24

Entertainment ..................25-35

Business Directory ......36-38

but fortunately many of us actually enjoy

standing in line, then sampling the flavours

at Messina. Or treating our nostrils

outside El Jannah’s in Granville.

The Parramatta Light Rail offers an opportunity

to rejuvenate Church Street

with more of this authenticity. Perhaps

we will come full circle to the time when

Harris Farm used to sell fresh produce

and gourmet delights in the site now earmarked

for the Powerhouse Museum.

But reviving retail is also a challenge for

suburban centres from Epping to Wentworthville

to Granville, where an intimate

new Woolworths Metro has just opened.

The task: provide offerings that delight

customers and tempt them to stay instead

of retreat to the big shopping centres

or order from home.

A postscript: this year I ordered a new

batch of shirts from Hoang Kim. It was a

bit tricky long-distance, but somehow we

did it – I took my own measurements and

screenshotted over the results. A couple

of months later, I opened the package,

guiltily imagining I had exposed all of

Australia to COVID. Again, perfect.

Soon after, I received a text. “Enjoy your

new shirts”

The times may change but amazing service

never goes out of style.

The City of Parramatta Council has

narrowed down a list of names

for the new civic, cultural and

community centre to two, but not everyone

is convinced they are the right fit for

the future state-of-the-art building.

Until Wednesday, June 16, the public will

be able to have their say on two proposed

names for the building – Civic Place and

The Civic – ahead of its expected completion

in mid-2022.

The building, which is currently referred

to as 5 Parramatta Square, is located in

the heart of Parramatta’s historic civic

precinct, which has long been used as a

key meeting place.

The area has housed the nearby heritage-listed

Town Hall since 1883, and was

the previous home to Council and former

Parramatta Library.

“This building is going to be the pride

and joy of our great City, with a state-ofthe-art

library, creative and community

spaces, new Council Chambers, and much

more,” City of Parramatta Lord Mayor,

Bob Dwyer said.

“We want to give the community an

opportunity to share their thoughts on

what this iconic facility should be called

and help shape its identity, before its doors

open to the public next year.

“This is going to be the people’s building

– a jewel in the crown of Parramatta

Square, reflecting the vibrancy of our

growing community.”

Council say the Civic Place and The Civic

reference the site’s past while acknowledging

the building as a place for the people

for generations to come.

Residents have taken to social media to

share their thoughts of the refined name

options, with many disappointed that

neither option reflected Aboriginal heritage.

Parraparent’s Kellie Darley said she

thinks neither speak to the significance

of the building or what it represents to the

community.

“They are pretty boring and unimaginative

and don’t speak to the place or the

culture and history of Parramatta,” she

said.

“It’s underwhelming for such a significant

development.

“I think to announce it during National

Reconciliation Week and to not put

forward an Aboriginal suggestion was

disappointing.”

The names will be open for feedback

until Wednesday, June 16.

LORD

MAYOR’S

MESSAGE

CR BOB

DWYER

Westmead Palliative Care Roundtable

Palliative care is a critical health service that

ensures terminally ill patients with complex

needs get the specialised care they need to

have a better quality of life. Last year, Council

wrote to the NSW Government to advocate for

the reopening of the dedicated palliative care

ward at Westmead Hospital, which has been

closed since 2009.

We feel this is a significant issue as without a

stand-alone palliative care unit, inpatients are

currently scattered across different wards, not

guaranteed a bed when they need it, and are

unlikely to be cared for by specialised palliative

care nurses, which affects their dignity and

comfort at an extremely vulnerable time.

On Friday, I attended a roundtable discussion,

led by palliative care expert Dr Philip Lee, to

update various Parramatta community leaders

on the situation and reach out for support in

formulating our next steps.

Westmead Hospital is part of the largest health

precinct in the southern hemisphere, so it makes

sense that it should also have its own dedicated

palliative care unit.

National Tree Day

Sunday 1 August is National Tree Day – a

wonderful opportunity for us to improve our

local environment and connect as a community.

Each year, the City of Parramatta adds 10,000

plants to select Council sites with the help of our

community.

Due to ongoing COVID restrictions, this year

we will be doing our free National Tree Day

planting event a little bit differently. Instead of

one large event, we will be holding a series of

small COVID-safe events at Upjohn Park North

in Rydalmere. It kicked off on World Environment

Day last Saturday, and will conclude on 1 August.

We are hoping to have about 350 volunteers

help plant 5,250 plants across the seven events.

We will be planting native trees, shrubs, grasses

and ground covers in an effort to increase

biodiversity, improve the water quality of the

creek and enhance the area’s natural habitat

for our local wildlife.

Spaces are limited, so if you’d like to take part,

please visit cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au/

Note: Some of the events are already full, but

there are still spaces available on 21 June, 5 July

Square will shine bright

Alliance formed to ensure major local project reaches its full potential

NICOLA BARTON

Landowners and tenants in

Parramatta’s CBD Centrepiece,

Parramatta Square, have now

joined forces in a new strategic alliance.

Recently City of Parramatta Deputy

Lord Mayor Michelle Garrard signed the

Parramatta Square Precinct Alliance

Charter along with representatives from

Walker Corporation, National Australia

Bank, Western Sydney University, NSW

Department of Planning, Industry and

Environment, NSW Department of

Customer Service, Sydney Water, Powerhouse

Parramatta and property investment

management firm, Charter Hall.

The purpose of the alliance is for

relevant stakeholders to collaborate on

initiatives to utilise the space to its highest

advantage.

This includes activating the precinct

during the day and night through a vibrant

events program.

City of Parramatta Council Lord Mayor

Bob Dwyer said the alliance would bring

about lots of fun events and activities for

the people of Parramatta to see and enjoy.

Representatives of the Parramatta Square Precinct Alliance.

Parramatta Square is one of the biggest

urban regeneration projects this country

has ever seen, setting a new Australian

benchmark for office space, retail and

dining,” he said.

“Councillors first committed to the

vision of a world-class commercial and

cultural precinct in the Parramatta CBD

in 1996 and we are incredibly proud to see

their ambitious plan taking shape.

“By working with Walker Corporation

and other alliance partners we will put

Parramatta Square on the global map

as an extraordinary gathering place for

inspiration, discovery, connection and

engagement.”

Walker Corporation Chief Executive

Officer David Gallant said the alliance

harnesses the collective ambition and

vision of the company, Council and

tenants to create an incredible city.

“Walker Corporation takes great pride

in delivering great places and here at

Parramatta Square we are creating a

world-class hub, which is the pulse of

Parramatta and the envy of CBDs across

Australia,” he said.

“This powerful alliance will bring

together some of Australia’s leading businesses

and institutions to help Parramatta

Square become one of the world’s best

places to work, shop, study and relax.”

Council will be managing the Square’s

public domain and will also be delivering

the refurbished Town Hall and

5 Parramatta Square, a $130 million

community, cultural and civic building.

Council has also commissioned two

eight-metre-tall public artworks which

are uniquely Parramatta to take pride of

place in the new Square in 2022. These

include Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro’s

‘A Place of Eels’ and Reko Rennie’s ‘Where

Eels Lie Down’.

The precinct is set to be finished in 2022.

Parramatta: Police search for man

who spat at staff in local store

Police are appealing for public assistance

to find a man who abused and spat

at staff at a store in Parramatta recently.

About 7.30am on Wednesday, May

26, an unknown male entered a store

on Church Street, Parramatta, which

operates a bottle recycling exchange

program.

Once inside the store, the man tried to

exchange his bottles which were refused

previously by staff due to them being of

poor quality.

Upon being told they would not accept

his bottles again, the man and staff

member became involved in a heated

argument.

During the argument, it is alleged the

unknown man spat at the staff member

which hit him in the face and chest.

The staff member then tried to get the

man to leave the store, which resulted in

a physical altercation.

Staff called the police but he ran off

prior to attendance.

The unknown male is described as of

Asian appearance and is believed to be

about 50-60-years-old.

Parramatta: Police warn of

scammers phoning residents

Police are reminding everyone to be

vigilant, as tele-scammers impersonating

police have been reported to be

contacting locals.

Between 11.30am and 1.30pm

on Thursday, May 27, a resident of

Parramatta received phone calls from

three separate people claiming to be

from the Parramatta Police Station and

another crime agency.

The callers were claiming that her

identity had been leaked.

POLICE SNAPSHOT

Compiled by Nicola Barton

LOCAL NEWS

She was informed that she had to

purchase gift cards to cover the costs of

retrieving her identity.

After purchasing over $2000 in gift

cards and supplying the details to the

callers the resident realised that she had

been scammed.

One of the phone numbers provided

was in fact the phone number of

Parramatta Police Station.

Police would like to remind members of

the public that police and other agencies

do not request payment in the form of gift

cards in any form.

Seven Hills: Man to face court

following April crash

A man will face court after allegedly

being caught driving more than three

times over the legal limit following a

crash in Seven Hills earlier this year.

Just before 11pm on Friday, April 16,

emergency services were called to

Prospect Highway, Seven Hills, following

reports a Kia sedan had mounted a curb

and collided with a power box.

Police officers attached to Blacktown

Police Area Command attended the

scene and spoke to the driver, a 44-yearold

man.

He underwent a roadside breath test,

which returned a positive result.

The man was arrested and taken to

Blacktown Police Station, where he

underwent a breath analysis and allegedly

returned a reading of 0.155, more

than three and a half times the legal

limit.

He was issued a Future Court Attendance

Notice (FCAN) for ‘drive with highrange

PCA’.

The man’s license was suspended and

he appeared at Blacktown Local Court

on Tuesday, June 1.

Merrylands Chamber of

Commerce is shining its focus

on the business leaders of

tomorrow, with recent events directed

at young people and female entrepreneurs.

Merrylands Chamber of Commerce

President, Immanuel Selvaraj said it’s

important that the chamber not only

focus on current businesses but also

assist people to become future entrepreneurs

and leaders.

“The two most impactful phenomenons

that have occurred and literally

changed our lives over the last couple of

decades are Facebook in 2004 and now

blockchain technology, which underpins

Cryptocurrency, in 2009; Both were

created by young people in their early

20’s,” he said.

“These young people have changed the

way we live.

“Gone are the days when a Chamber

consisted of middle-aged men pondering

over business issues.

“Past experience is not as important as

what it was in the past.”

Most recently the chamber held its

Leadership, Entrepreneurship and

The Chamber’s recent workshop.

Growing your Business workshop at the

Granville Centre, for keen young people

looking for tips on starting out or growing

an existing business.

Attendees heard from key speakers

including Auburn MP Lynda Voltz,

Barrister and Cumberland Citizen of

the Year, Dr Chandrika Subramaniyam,

business person, coach Frank Web and

Cumberland Business Person of the Year

2020, Alpesh Prajapati.

The event was free, sponsored by the

Chamber, to support young people and

women to start or grow their business.

The Chamber proposes to hold a series

of workshops in the coming months to

help young people, women and existing

businesses start or grow their business.


There’s a housing crisis in

Parramatta – and we need a

plan to fix it

Australia is in the grip of a housing crisis.

It’s harder to buy or rent and there are more

Australians experiencing homelessness than

ever before.

ADVERTISEMENT

Julie Owens Bulletin

The reasons for this are not a mystery. While wages growth

has been stagnant since the Government was elected in

2013, low interest rates and Government incentives have

increased demand in the housing market, pushing up prices.

Apartment developments have exploded in places like

Parramatta, which has increased housing supply, but we

haven’t been building enough social and affordable housing

to keep pace with demand.

There are more than 400,000 people waiting for social

housing in Australia, including 4,200 in Parramatta, and

Everybody’s Home estimates that Australia will need

500,000 new social and affordable homes in the next five

years.

The Morrison Government had an unprecedented

opportunity to address these issues in the latest Budget,

which has racked up a trillion dollars in debt in response to

the pandemic.

Instead they’ve introduced measures that will increase

demand and do little to address the critical shortage of

affordable housing.

These include increasing the amount of money you can

withdraw from super for a home deposit from $30,000 to

$50,000. Experts say this will only push up prices, while

leaving Australians worse off in retirement.

Another measure that’s received a lot of attention is the

Family Home Guarantee, which will allow 10,000 single

parents to buy a home with just a 2% deposit over the next

four years.

When you divide the number of guarantees by the

electorates represented in our Federal Parliament, that

means an average of just 16 of the 738 single parent

households in Parramatta stand to benefit each year.

Grants Forum

I’ll Ill be hosting a grants forum on Monday 12 July to

explain the

ins and outs of the grant

application process and how

organisations can maximise

their chances for success –

scan the QR code to register.

Parramatta needs more affordable housing – like this Evolve Housing

development in Harris Park.

If those 16 single parents want to buy a house or

a unit in Parramatta, they’ll need to be earning

close to the scheme’s $125,000 income cap to

be able to borrow enough money to do it. Data

from the Melbourne Institute and CoreLogic

shows that someone earning the median income for a

single parent with two kids ($56,795) would only be able to

afford a house in one Sydney suburb with the guarantee –

Carramar.

Labor believes the Government needs to take urgent action

to address the housing crisis. That’s why we’ve committed

to establish a $10 billion Housing Australia Future Fund.

Returns on the fund in the first five years would build

20,000 new social homes – with 4,000 set aside for women

and children fleeing domestic violence and older women

at risk of homelessness. They would also build 10,000

affordable homes for frontline workers; support housing

repairs in remote Indigenous communities; and fund crisis

housing for women fleeing domestic violence and older

women and veterans at risk of homelessness.

After the first five years, a portion of the returns will fund

acute housing needs each year in perpetuity – creating a

permanent funding base for social housing that will also

create jobs and inject billions into our economy.

Our community needs more social and affordable housing

– and a Government with a plan to fix our housing crisis. If

you’d like to learn more about Labor’s plan, scan the QR

Sauvignon Blanc: dependable,

versatile when it

comes to food pairings,

and perfect for quaffing

with friends and family.

Order it and you know you won’t be

disappointed.

The beauty of this easy-drinking

wine lies in its high acidity, medium

body and defining notes of gooseberry,

elderflower, passionfruit and

grapefruit, balanced with nettle,

grass and green capsicum herbal

notes. Cooler climates tend to result

in higher concentrations of fruity

flavours, giving more herbaceous

wines, such as those from Marlborough

in New Zealand.

Here’s four wines you simply have

to try:

State of Light Marlborough Sauvignon

Blanc ($23): People are now

looking for lighter options when it

comes to their favourite wines and

the team from State of Light have

created a wine that’s lower in calories

and alcohol but doesn’t compromise

on taste.

Round Theory Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc ($23): Consciously

crafted from the ground up to have a

positive impact on the plant, Round

Theory was designed for wine lovers

who want to make a more environmentally

friendly decision. Round

Theory is proudly climate positive

and supports a number of programs

within CarbonClick.

Crafters Union Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc ($20): The Crafters

Union are a group of winemakers

with the desire to create something

a little unique. They are passionate

about making the wines you drink

even more memorable than the way

they look.

Kim Crawford Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc ($22): Kim Crawford

make one of Marlborough’s

benchmark Sauvignon Blanc and has

amassed international wine awards

for years. This classic Marlborough

Sauvignon has aromas of lifted citrus,

tropical fruit and crushed herbs.

On the palate it’s fresh, juicy with a

vibrant acidity and plenty of weight

and length. Ripe, tropical fruit sing

through for this wine.

Labor locks in Minns

Opposition focuses on 2023 election after settling on new party leader

NICOLA BARTON

Kogarah MP Chris Minns has

sealed his position as the new

State Opposition Leader, after a

turbulent few weeks for the Labor Party

saw former leader, Jodi McKay step down.

Mr Minns was unanimously elected on

Friday during a caucus meeting and was

the only candidate to officially nominate,

despite former NSW Labor Leader Michael

Daley having signalled his interest in the

role.

Mr Daley received significant criticism

over the course of the week, as Asian-

Austalian members of the NSW Labor

Party condemned his leadership bid, due

to remarks he made back in 2019.

Mr Daley eventually pulled out of the

race, with the majority of the party thankful

to avoid a costly and timely rank-andfile

ballot.

This was Mr Minns’ third attempt at

leadership and he will now take the party

to the 2023 State Election.

Speaking to the media on the weekend,

Mr Minns said he was very humbled and

happy to be elected as leader.

“Now the hard work begins for the Labor

Party to get up off the mat and take the

fight up to the Berejiklian Government

and have some positive plans for the

future of NSW,” he said.

“I know that task will be difficult but I

believe I am up for it.

“I firmly, however, believe that the next

election will be about what kind of economy

and society we want to build in NSW

once the pandemic is over. My job now is

to rally the troops, focus on the people of

NSW and have a positive and optimistic

plan about what’s possible for NSW.”

Mr Minns spent his first day on the job

with a visit to western Sydney, armed with

a pitch, vowing to address stagnant wages,

rising tolls and cost of living.

Mr Minns’ victory followed a teary

resignation from Ms McKay, as a result of

mounting pressure after the party lost the

Upper Hunter by-election.

Mr Minns will now look to recruit a newlook

Shadow Cabinet and has suggested a

significant shake-up is on the horizon.

He, however, has not indicated whether

this will include Ms McKay or Mr Daley.

It is expected the new Shadow Cabinet

will be announced by the end of the week.

Tackling smoking head-on

Confronting new campaign to discourage smoking at Westmead Hospital

NICOLA BARTON

Ten local patients are the faces of

a new smoking campaign now on

display at Westmead Hospital’s

Central Acute Services Building (CASB).

The purpose of the no-smoking signs

is to prompt patients and visitors of the

hospital to think twice about the impact

their cigarette may have, not only on

themselves, but those around them.

Respiratory patients like Glenn Tracy,

who recently underwent a double lung

transplant, know first-hand the danger of

inhaling second-hand smoke.

“I hope that by seeing these signs, smokers

realise that their actions affect others,”

he said.

“I breathe in passive smoke every time I

come to the hospital for my rehab sessions.

“It’s not an enjoyable experience and

should not be something patients need to

experience when coming to the hospital

for care.”

The campaign was launched in-line with

the recent World No Tobacco Day.

Emphysema patient Robert Habkouk

hopes the new signs have a strong impact

on smokers.

“Smoke-free signs don’t show how cigarette

smoke harms people in real life,” he

said.

“These new signs have real stories and

faces of people like me who already struggle

to breathe.”

Western Sydney Local Health District

(WSLHD) Manager of Community and

Consumer Partnerships, Coralie Wales,

said smoking at hospital entrances has

long been a concern for the WSLHD

Consumer Council.

“Patients at the hospital have experienced

this for far too long and that has

driven the overwhelming support for this

signage,” she said.

“We hope that by sharing the personal

stories of already high-risk patients, smokers

will think twice before lighting up.”

The development of the new signs was

supported by Westmead Redevelopment,

WSLHD Respiratory Ambulatory

Care Service, WSLHD Community and

Consumer Partnership, The Children’s

Hospital at Westmead Health Promotion

Unit, Westmead Cancer Services,

Westmead Women’s Health and WSLHD

Centre for Population Health.

LOCAL NEWS

Hospital’s Central Acute Services Building.

All hospital grounds in the WSLHD are

100 per cent smoke-free.

Visitors, patients and staff are not

permitted to smoke near entrances.

Under the NSW Smoke-free Environment

Act 2000, smoking is banned within

four metres of a pedestrian entrance or

exit from a public building.

Those in breach may face fines up to

$300.

Silver Chain are

Earth’s angels

NICOLA BARTON

After her husband died of cancer

14 years ago, North Parramatta

resident Cheryl Row’s two adult

sons moved back into the family home.

What she would have never imagined at

the time was that in the future she would

end up being the primary carer for her

eldest son William, who unfortunately,

passed away recently from cancer at just

44-years-old.

For the past seven months, her son

received at-home palliative care by

government-funded not-for-profit service,

Silver Chain.

In light of Palliative Care Week, Ms Row

is championing the importance of end of

life care.

“The Silver Chain nurses made it possible

for Billy to stay at home, which is where

he wanted to be,” she said.

“I couldn’t have done this without them;

they were absolute angels.”

Early last year, William Row started feeling

stomach pains but doctors could not

work out what was causing the discomfort

– until it was too late.

By late July, he was diagnosed with latestage

lung cancer that had spread to his

liver, lymph nodes and bones.

He tried just two rounds of chemotherapy

and immunotherapy, but had to

stop treatment in October after becoming

too weak.

“Billy then started getting palliative care

from Silver Chain,” Ms Row said.

“They came every day, sometimes twice

a day, helping us with everything, whether

it was getting advice or managing his pain

medication.

“One time I called them at midnight and

they were at our house within 14 minutes.

“They always came in with a smile and

cheered him up.”

Ms Row said it was her son’s wish to stay

at home as it made him feel more accessible

for visitors.

“It meant so much that Billy could stay

at home with me and his brother Brad

and have everyone else around him,” she

explained.

Silver Chain delivers in-home palliative

care services to 7,000 Australians every

year through its palliative care team of

more than 500 staff.

Its NSW Palliative Care Service provides

Decades of

NICOLA BARTON

Local community worker Shyama

Perera is being recognised for 20

dedicated years of service to the

Hills Community Aid in Baulkham Hills.

Recently, Baulkham Hills MP David

Elliot, The Hills Shire Council Mayor

Michelle Byrne, and City of Parramatta

Councillor Bill Tyrrell attended the

organisation to present Ms Perea with a

Community Service Award.

Hills Community Aid has been an integral

grassroots organisation servicing The

Hills, Parramatta and broader western

Sydney for over 50 years.

The community organisation was established

in 1969 by social worker Mary Lane,

who identified a lack of services in the area

for mothers needing support.

Since then, Hills Community Aid has

continued to grow its grassroots connection

by providing front-line services to

people who are vulnerable and experiencing

disadvantage.

With the vision of creating safe, healthy,

connected and inclusive communities,

well-being and educational programs,

and services to strengthen and connect

communities and reduce social isolation.

Hills Community Aid Executive Officer,

Mici Beer, said none of this would be

possible without people like Ms Perera.

“None of this would be possible without

the hard work and dedication of our small

team of staff and an army of volunteers,”

she said.

Ms Perera is the longest-serving

employee at the organisation.

First joining the team back in 2001 as a

volunteer, she was quick to become an

integral permanent member of staff with

her deep knowledge and expertise now at

the core of Hills Community Aid’s Financial

Inclusion program.

She conducts close to 200 client visits

each year and dedicates endless additional

hours to deliver a first-class service

to some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged

in the community.

Ms Perera has been instrumental in

establishing the No Interest Loan Scheme

(NILS) and the Energy Accounts Payment

Assistance (EAPA) Scheme.

She has also developed an outreach

service to deliver no interest loans (NILS)

and Emergency Relief funding in numerous

locations to ensure those in need can

access assistance.

“The work I do I really enjoy, I like helping

people and it really doesn’t feel like a

job to me,” Ms Perera said.

“These people are very resilient and I

am grateful they put their trust in us to

Screen time solutions

How parents can navigate the digital dilemma when it comes to devices

ERIN CHRISTIE

Children spending time on screens

is becoming more of a concern,

with many parents beginning to

notice negative effects of constant digital

use.

The Growing Up Digital Australia report

by the Gonski Institute for Education

found that only 46 per cent of parents felt

that their child could spend a day without

digital technology, and that 83 per cent of

parents, carers and grandparents felt that

their child was negatively distracted by

digital technologies.

However, there are ways to manage

screen addiction and temptation for

children.

Set examples

While worry over kids’ screen time

seems to dominate conversations, parents

are also finding their own screen time can

be a matter of concern.

“Over 90 per cent of parents felt that they

themselves were negatively distracted, at

least to some extent, by digital technologies,”

Dr Amy Graham, a Research Fellow

at the Gonski Institute said.

It’s important to set boundaries when it comes to kids and screen time.

“What we do know from good parenting

and impactful teaching is that the power

of an example is often the most effective

way to change.”

This means showing children that

parents can go without screens by having

parents adhere to the same rules they

impose on their children.

“We know from the best neuroscience

that early childhood gives us the best

chance to shape children’s habits and that

the brain absorbs information twice as

quickly. If parents are introducing screens

as a digital babysitter … this is what will

be absorbed. Instead, let kids do other

activities and find other ways to entertain

themselves,” Dr Graham said.

Enforcing boundaries

Technology has made it easier for parents

to enforce boundaries on their children

when it comes to use of digital devices.

Google Home allows parents to physically

monitor and control screen time.

Through Google Home, parents can

view their child’s activity online, and

receive reports showing how much time

they spend using each app. Parents can

also manage app downloads, giving them

the opportunity to block or approve any

downloaded apps.

It also allows parents to set limits on

screen time, and to lock their kids out of

their device remotely, so they know it’s

time to put the phone or iPad away.

Open conversations

It is also important that families also

have open discussions about device use.

“All the strategies don’t encourage kids

to self-regulate their own usage, which is

perhaps the missing piece of the puzzle,”

Dr Graham said.

“Sometimes, they actually teach kids to

just get better at hiding their screen habits

more. I think parents should start an open

conversation with their kids about screens

and the impact on wellbeing and health.”

Dr Graham recommends setting loose

and firm boundaries that are honoured by

the whole family. A firm boundary could

be no phones in bedrooms, while a loose

one could be an hour of screen time on

the weekend each doing an activity they

choose.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

Make sure you keep yourself occupied

in entertaining ways, as the Solar

Eclipse lights up your leisure and recreation

zone. Creative projects and quirky

Aquarian hobbies are particularly favoured.

On the weekend, think twice

before you blurt out something controversial

that you later regret. Instead,

use the sparky Venus/Uranus energy to

brainstorm creative ideas. Then come

up with an inspiring vision or a progressive

plan that you can share and develop

with others.

HOROSCOPES

BROUGHT TO YOU BY BOHO ASTRO - JOANNE MADELINE MOORE

Daily posts at www.bohoastro.com | twitter @JoMadelineMoore | © Joanne Madeline Moore 2021

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

The Solar Eclipse encourages you to

adjust your home/work ratio so it’s much

more balanced and family friendly. With

Mercury reversing through your home

zone (until June 22) do all you can to

bypass domestic drama and repair family

friction that needs attention. It’s time

for Pisceans to sit down and smoke the

peace pipe! But a relative, housemate or

close friend could bamboozle you with

some confusing information. So make

sure you check the facts thoroughly before

you respond.

ARIES

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

Rambunctious Rams are feeling restless,

as the Solar Eclipse stimulates your

spontaneous nature. But – with retrograde

Mercury in your communication

zone – if you stretch the truth in dubious

directions, then you’ll be caught out. So

make sure you stick to the facts and figures,

especially when you’re connecting

with relatives and members of your local

community. Mars marches into Leo on

Friday, which is fabulous for colourful

friendships and heightened creativity

all-round.

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

The Solar Eclipse energises your money

zone, so it’s a good time to take stock

of your financial situation and find fresh

ways to boost cash flow. Bulls are also

feeling mighty curious as Venus and

Uranus activate your learning and local

travel zone. So it’s a wonderful week to

shake off the physical and mental cobwebs

and get passionate about a weekend

getaway, an online project, a local

community connection or a new study

course. Remember – knowledge is power!

GEMINI

MAY 22 TO JUNE 21

CANCER

JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

LEO

JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

VIRGO

AUGUST 24 TO SEPTEMBER 23

Gung-ho Gemini – avoid the temptation

to skim over important details. The

Solar Eclipse is in your sign, so you’re

keen to zoom ahead but remember

there’s a fine line between making smart

snap decisions and messy mistakes. The

stars encourage creative thinking but

nervous energy is also high. If you don’t

pace yourself, you’ll be exhausted by the

end of the week. You also need to steer

clear of fake news, unreliable people and

flighty friends, especially on Thursday

and Friday.

Many Crabs will feel emotionally vulnerable

this week, as the Solar Eclipse

navigates its way through your selfsabotage

zone. But don’t make things

worse by being mysteriously moody or

overly dependent. If you side-step issues

and let other people set your personal

agenda, then you’ll just end up feeling

paralysed and powerless. With Venus

and Mars both visiting your sign (until

Friday) do your best to articulate ideas

and pursue projects in a creative and

confident manner.

The Solar Eclipse activates your hopes

and wishes zone. Circumstances are

constantly changing so your dreams for

the future need to be regularly reviewed

and updated to keep pace with outside

events as well as your inner evolution.

Mars moves into your sign on Friday,

so have the courage and confidence to

be the real you. Be inspired by movie

star (and birthday great) Judy Garland:

“Always be a first-rate version of yourself,

instead of a second-rate version of

somebody else”.

Thursday’s Solar Eclipse revs up your

reputation zone so don’t hide your versatile

Virgo talents! Be proud to show the

world what you are truly capable of. And

is a close relationship testing your mettle,

and your patience? Habitual thinking

and old solutions won’t help. Venus

and Uranus encourage you to change

your attitude and look at the situation

from a totally fresh perspective. It may

take a few false starts but (with a positive

and persistent approach) you’ll get there

in the end.

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

Mercury continues reversing through

your education and travel zone. So you

can expect continuing disruptions, delays,

difficulties, misunderstandings or

general shenanigans. Don’t let that deter

you Libra! If you are flexible and adapt

to constantly changing circumstances,

then you can still have a week that is

stimulating and satisfying. As actor/activist

(and birthday great) Michael J. Fox

observes: “Our challenges don’t define

us, our actions do”.

The Solar Eclipse signals the dawn of

a profound new way of seeing things.

Plus Venus and Uranus propel you into

exciting new territory regarding a close

relationship (of the romantic or platonic

variety). Whatever happens, you’re not

in the mood for superficial partnerships

or light-hearted conversations as you

dive deep into the well of creativity. Be

inspired by birthday great Prince: “To

create something from nothing is one of

the greatest feelings … It’s heaven”.

Has a close relationship been going

down a rocky road? Thursday’s Solar

Eclipse encourages you to build bridges

and start communicating again. You’ll

have to be proactive and patient though,

as you make the first move and are prepared

to wait for long-term results. On

Friday, Mars transits into your education

zone (until July 29). So your motto for the

week is from birthday great, writer William

Butler Yeats: “Education is not the

filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”.

A work colleague, client or customer

won’t behave in predictable ways this

week, so don’t even try to anticipate

what they will do next. Avoid butting in,

being a bossy Goat, and offering (wellintentioned)

advice. Uranus reminds

you that a teenager, friend or lover requires

plenty of room to move and express

themselves. They need to make

their own mistakes and follow their own

dreams. So smart Capricorns will back

off, calm down and go with the flow.

The South Coast of NSW is scattered

with delightful seaside

hamlets and towns that have

been long frequented as

holiday destinations. Back in

the day, many city dwellers had beach or

bush shacks that were an integral part of

family vacays and weekend escapes. As

the years have moved on, most, if not all

have been replaced by dwellings more in

tone with today’s expectations.

Kiama, long known to the original

Indigenous inhabitants of the area, the

Tharawal people, was also termed “where

the sea makes a noise” because of the

famous volcanic blowhole, and is one of

the villages I speak of.

From the first European sighting of the

blowhole by George Bass in 1797 and the

subsequent first white settlers in 1821,

Kiama has provided an intimate and

appealing escape for many.

The Kiama of today still retains a lot of

what made it a special destination all those

years ago. In fact, with its combination of

nature-based adventure, the construction

of quality accommodation choices

and the arrival of many top-class dining

establishments, the allure of Kiama as a

day tripper’s delight or for those wanting

a longer sojourn has certainly grown

exponentially.

More visitors has not, however, taken

anything away from the charm that exists

and I for one certainly encourage you to get

it onto your list of destinations to discover

in NSW when you next feel the wanderlust.

“THE KIAMA OF TODAY

RETAINS A LOT OF WHAT

MADE IT SPECIAL ALL

THOSE YEARS AGO”

One of the newest of those afore

mentioned accommodation choices is

one I am more than happy to direct you

to. Nova Kiama has only been a part of the

Kiama landscape for 18 months and has

swiftly gained a reputation of delivering

a warm and homely feel with rooms that

offer a boutique coastal feel that will have

you relaxed during your next escape.

Melding perfectly with the beachside

culture that exists in Kiama, Nova’s 32

sun-filled rooms and executive suites have

a subtle understated décor but still deliver

all you need for a comforting and relaxed

break.

Many of the rooms have the addition

of well-designed kitchenettes that will

certainly come in handy if you have the

kids in tow.

Being boutique in style the premises is

not over bearing in any way and vaunts

an attractive atrium that leads you to the

pool deck and heated pool which is among

many little nooks and crannies that serve

as hideaways for you to take a moment for

yourself.

I absolutely love the addition of the

‘Coffee Kombi’ that holds pride of place as

part of the chilled reception area. Unique

in design and enfolded by some small

tables and stools, it is the perfect position

to start or finish the day with your coffee

fix and maybe a sweet treat as well?

Remember holidays are for spoiling

yourself.

While the hotel has its ‘Kombi Café’, it

doesn’t have a restaurant on the premises

as such. This may have been a negative for

me until I was notified by the very attentive

and welcoming staff, about the connection

Nova has with the ever-present public

house on the corner, which is literally a

one-minute walk from the reception area.

Grand by name and certainly grand in

stature, the hotel has been servicing this

delightful slice of NSW coastline since

1891 and she certainly has some tales to

tell.

Grand old pubs of this nature are so

intriguing for me with their rich history

and character oozing from within its

sturdy structure. They are also the best

places to engage with a local or two, who

more than often have a tale to tell, or a

secret spot or recommendation that you

won’t find elsewhere.

Relief from pain and enjoying

playing with my grandson

To be told at 50 I may need a knee operation one day was a shock.

Not wanting an operation at this point, I needed an alternative,

and what an alternative I found. In pain, I started Arborvitae

treatment and after two weeks my pain and

swelling had reduced. Now my pain has gone.

If I am going to have a big day in the yard or

in the bobcat, I make sure I take my Arborvitae

first. What a fabulous product this is! No one

should go through life in pain and I will tell

anyone that will listen – if you have early onset

mild osteo arthritis – start taking Arborvitae, it

has certainly helped me.

– Testimonial from Gary of Kenthurst

Arborvitae is available in over 1000 chemists and health food stores Australia wide.

STAYING HEALTHY

Kelvin has a new lease on life

thanks to the team at MCS Mobility

For Merrylands resident, Kelvin

Gadd (pictured), using his mobility

scooter is part of everyday life.

He says he loves being out and about,

but having health conditions that

prevent him from doing so unassisted,

means having a reliable scooter is critical.

Mr Gadd had been out of action for

months when his scooter needed to

be repaired, as despite being under

warranty, he was told he would have to

send it to Queensland to be serviced.

That’s when he met local man, Sam

Chidiac, who owns MCS Mobility in

Merrylands and says he’s never looked

back since.

“Sam has really changed everything for

me; he goes above and beyond to service

my scooter and ensures it’s repaired

quickly and returned to me on the same

day,” he said.

“Having a reliable scooter is truly a

God-send and so is Sam in ensuring

mine is always running smoothly.”

Mr Gadd said he uses the scooter daily

and has done 8000kms in the past 12

months.

“I love to be out and about and the

thought of not having my scooter for

months on end for repairs would be very

isolating for me,” he said.

HEART

ERIN CHRISTIE

Blake O’Connor is yet to turn 21,

but he’s already making waves in

the Australian country music industry.

Hailing from Windsor, he has already

played the likes of Nashville’s Bluebird

Cafe and spent plenty of time in Tamworth,

making a name for himself on the ARIA

Country Music charts.

“I grew up listening to a lot of country music,

my grandparents always had Willie Nelson

and Waylon Jennings playing in the car

when we’d go on road trips,” Blake told Parra

News.

“As I got into my early teens … I found the

Zac Brown Band and Chris Stapleton, which

really drew me to the country side of things.”

However, his most significant influence

when it came to performing live was Ed

Sheeran.

“Listening to an acoustic performer playing

in a stadium by himself, that was enough for

me to want to go ‘OK, I can do this’,” he said.

This passion for music and performing has

driven him to very early success – he has already

won two Australian Country Music

Awards.

In 2019, Blake won the Toyota Star Maker

award, leading him to perform a ticketed

show at the Tamworth Country Music Festival

in 2020. It was also the year he won the

Golden Guitar for New Talent of the Year.

“A Golden Guitar is humongous, I honestly

didn’t think I was going to win it that year, it

was really tough competition,” he said.

Of the five nominees, Blake was the youngest,

and the only independent artist on the

list.

“It’s incredible to know all the people who

have won it in the past – from The McClymonts

to Keith Urban … even Slim Dusty. To

know I’m of that category now is incredible.

It’s still sitting up in my room, all polished,

still shining,” he laughed.

For now, Blake is continuing to release

music, including his new single, ‘Willin’

and Ready’.

He recently completed a 15-date tour

supporting Diesel, and will now play a

string of his own shows.

However, he has a lot more planned

for where he wants to take his career,

having already gotten a taste for Nashville.

“It was incredible, the whole vibe

of the place over there is just another

world,” he said.

“I guess as big as you can imagine,

that’s where I want to take it, because

why hold it back?”

Blake O’Connor will play at the Windsor

RSL on Friday, July 2. Tickets begin

at $25. Visit www.windsorrsl.

com.au/event/blake-oconnor to

get tickets. His forthcoming new

single ‘Soul Feeling’ is also available

to pre-order and pre-save now.

TV NEWS

I know this is a huge call and I’ll probably

be hammered for it, but the ‘Friends

Reunion’ was the greatest piece of

television I’ve seen in my 34 years on this

planet. Call me crazy, but you’ll be hard

pressed to find anyone sane that didn’t

absolutely love it just as much as I did. It

was literally the perfect production jampacked

full of nostalgia, laughter, surprises,

secrets and heart. If you haven’t

seen it yet, please judge for yourself – it’s

available to stream right now on Foxtel

and Binge. 10 out of 10!

Start sharpening your knives because

10 is bringing back ‘Celebrity MasterChef

Australia’ later this year. According to the

press release, “a legendary sports person,

an Aussie icon and a famous actor are

ready to don a MasterChef apron and

face the heat of the famed MasterChef

kitchen”. Judges Melissa Leong, Andy

Allen and Jock Zonfrillo will all return.

‘Celebrity MasterChef’ last appeared on

Aussie screens way back in 2009 when

the franchise was just getting underway.

Swimmer Eamon Sullivan (remember

him?) won the series.

FRIENDS REUNION, FOXTEL AND BINGE

Speaking of swimmers, five-time

Olympic gold medallist Ian Thorpe has

joined Channel Seven’s commentary

team for the upcoming Tokyo Games. The

Olympics kick-off on July 23.

I like this move… ‘The Kelly Clarkson

Show’ will replace the outgoing ‘The Ellen

DeGeneres Show’ later next year. The

former ‘American Idol’ winner’s talk show

began in 2019 and has performed well in

the US ever since. While we haven’t seen

the show here in Australia yet, expect it

to also replace ‘Ellen’ on Channel Nine

sometime next year.

The Tour de France is back, cycling

live onto SBS from Saturday, June 26.

Along with all the race action, SBS will

also launch a new live preview show

called ‘Bonjour Le Tour’, hosted by

former cycling champion Kate Bates with

SBS French Radio’s Christophe Mallet.

Here’s one for all the ‘90s kids… Bette

Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy

Najimy will reprise their roles as the

Sanderson Sisters in ‘Hocus Pocus 2’, a sequel

to Disney’s 1993 Halloween cult classic

‘Hocus Pocus’. The film will premiere

exclusively on Disney+ in 2022.

parra news » Tuesday, June 8, 2021

COMING SOON

CELEBRITY MASTERCHEF, 10

Local lifestyle series ‘Space Invaders’,

which focuses on de-cluttering,

renovation and transformation, has been

renewed for a second season by Channel

Nine.

Season 3 of ‘Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted’

is currently airing on National

Geographic on Tuesdays at 8.30pm. On

this adventure, Gordon will visit Texas,

Portugual, Mexico, Iceland and Maine.

At the movies...

Latest Saw chapter just misses the mark

SPIRAL


1 hour, 35 minutes

parra news » Tuesday, June 8, 2021

TROY DODDS

The first two ‘Saw’ films in 2004 and

2005 were nothing short of groundbreaking,

changing the horror genre

for a new generation of film-goers.

Inevitably, the franchise lost its way

through six more films, though 2017’s

‘Jigsaw’ did seem to get things back on

the right track.

‘Spiral’ is a fresh take on the concept,

but probably the closest to the

shock and awe of the first two films

– though it ultimately falls short of

delivering the same level of thrills,

especially when it comes to the traps

the franchise is best known for. They

come across as unimaginative and are

rushed through too quickly.

The premise is pretty simple – Detective

Zeke Banks (Chris Rock) and

his new partner (Max Minghella) get

the case of a bizarre death involving a

cop and a train, quickly learning that

there’s a Jigsaw copycat in their midst.

They race to track down the trickster

and understand his motives before

more people are killed.

There’s some great clues left along

the way and depending on how tuned

in to the ‘Saw’ world you are, you may

manage to guess the surprise ending

before it lands.

If you don’t, and you manage a

‘didn’t see that coming’ take-away

from the flick, you’ll probably enjoy it

a tad more than most.

Value for money SUV

Pricing confirmed for Jolion range

NATHAN TAYLOR

parra news » Tuesday, June 8, 2021

GWM Haval has announced the

full line-up and pricing for the

all-new Haval Jolion range.

Starting from just $25,490 Driveaway,

the new range-opening Jolion Premium

offers an extensive feature list, a full array

of active safety systems and outstanding

value for money.

Connectivity is at the forefront with a

10.25 inch colour multimedia touchscreen

linked to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Every available active safety system is

also offered on the standard equipment

list including Autonomous Emergency

Braking (AEB) with pedestrian and bicycle

detection, Lane Departure Warning

(LDW), Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Adaptive

Cruise Control (ACC), Traffic Sign Recognition

(TSR), Lane Change Assist with

Blind Sport Monitoring (BSM) and Rear

Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).

Offering further support to the safety of

drivers and passengers alike, all models in

the new Jolion range come equipped with

a camera-based driver fatigue monitoring

system.

Full line-up announced for the all-new Haval Jolion range.

Power is delivered by an upgraded 1.5

litre turbo petrol engine with outputs of

110kW and 210Nm and mated to a new

generation 7-speed DCT.

Built on the company’s new global

lightweight modular platform and with

a 2700mm wheelbase, the Jolion range

offers packaging advantages over almost

all other SUVs within this price range.

Following on from the initial limited run

of 200 Jolion LEs, the Jolion range differentiates

itself with the addition of a new

mesh-type front grille.

Aside from the addition of the new

range-opening Premium grade, this is the

only other difference from these initial LE

models.

GWM Haval continues to offer one of

the best after-sales and customer care

packages in the industry with a seven-year

unlimited km warranty, five years roadside

assist and a competitive Capped Price

Servicing program.

Lux and Ultra grades are available now

with Premium to follow in late June.

History to be made at Wanderers

NATHAN TAYLOR

History is being made

at the Western Sydney

Wanderers with stalwart

Catherine Cannuli becoming

the club’s first ever female

W-League head coach.

The former player turned coach

takes on the role following the

departure of club legends Dean

Heffernan and Michael Beauchamp,

who decided to stand

down from their roles respectively

as head and assistant

coaches of the W-League team.

Heffernan and Beauchamp

depart following two seasons at

the helm of Western Sydney’s

W-League team, including a

Finals appearance in 2019/20.

Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas

thanked Heffernan and Beauchamp

for their dedication to

the W-League over the past two

seasons.

“Firstly, I have to thank Dean

and Michael for their tireless

work in helping shape our

W-League program and providing

opportunities to some exceptional

young talent in western

Sydney,” he said.

“Dean and Michael are Wanderers

legends, they have played

an important role in the club’s

development and we wish them

every success in the future.”

A former Matilda, Cannuli

finished her playing career at

the Wanderers in 2014 before

re-joining the club in 2017 as an

assistant coach. She has been

ever present supporting the

development of young players in

western Sydney for the past six

years.

In 2020, Cannuli was named

Female Coach of the Year at the

Female Football Awards for her

work at the Wanderers and in

grassroots football as Women’s

Technical Director at Southern

Districts Soccer Football Association.

“Cath has been nothing short

of outstanding in her work in

our women’s program. The way

she interacts and encourages the

playing group and staff, both on

and off the pitch, is exemplary.

She brings people together and

cares deeply about her work and

this club,” Tsatsimas said.

“We are delighted to have Cath

take up the head coach role,

not only does she deserve this

chance, she has well and truly

earned it thanks to her tireless

work and dedication to women’s

football and the Wanderers Football

Club.”

Cannuli has already

commenced recruitment for the

club’s W-League 2021/22 season

and is focused on taking the

Wanderers back to the Finals in

2022.

“It’s an exciting opportunity,

I’ve been involved with the club

since the very beginning, first as

a player and now as head coach,”

the 35-year-old said.

“It’s a great opportunity and

one that I have always wanted

to do. I have been around a lot

of good coaches and had some

great mentors who have guided

me along the way.”

Catherine Cannuli will coach Western Sydney’s W-League side next season.
