A Message from Mayor Steve Christou

The newly built Eric Tweedale stadium

Roadmap to recovery – the future is looking bright

I welcome the road map for when we reach 80%

vaccinated and the changes for everyone (either

vaccinated or not) from 1 December. Particularly,

community sport for everyone from 1 December is

fantastic to boost the exercise options to support

mental health. This will be a great springboard into

summer, particularly for children who have been

home schooled and who haven’t had any structured

activities or sports for months.

As council is finishing up the Granville Park

upgrades and the new Eric Tweedale Stadium,

I’m pleased to see that major recreation outdoor

facilities, including stadiums, can operate with one

person per 2 sqm from December.

That’s great timing for us so we can introduce the

community to this amazing new facility.

Most importantly, this announcement gives clear

direction for businesses that have been closed

and the households that rely on those businesses

for income. It offers clarity and light at the end of

the tunnel to the communities in western Sydney

who’ve lived under harsh lockdowns for far too

long. It allows business owners to plan for their

opening in a COVID-safe way.

Looking toward the end of the year and Christmas,

it’s looking much brighter for our community.

We look forward to a prosperous new year.

Quirk forces election

Mayoral elections held ahead of locals going to the polls on December 4

NICOLA BARTON

Both Parramatta and Cumberland

Councils have elected new Mayors

and Deputy Mayors, albeit for a

fleeting term, until the community hit

the polls in December.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Local

Government Election was postponed

in September, however councils whose

Mayors were elected in September 2019

were required to still hold Mayoral Elections

last month when the current twoyear

terms expired.

Councils will be required to elect a new

Mayor at the first meeting of the newly

elected Council.

Councillor Steven Issa was appointed by

the City of Parramatta Council as its new

Lord Mayor.

Leadership runs in the family for Cr Issa,

as he follows in the footsteps of his father

Tony Issa who served as the Lord Mayor of

the former Parramatta City Council from

2008-2009, before progressing to State

politics as the former Granville MP.

The father of three said it was a privilege

to be elected as Lord Mayor, after nine

Parramatta Lord Mayor Steven Issa.

years as a Councillor, including two terms

as Deputy Lord Mayor.

“I am excited now to be leading one of

the biggest Local Government Areas in

Australia and the best Local Government

Cumberland Mayor Steve Christou.

Area in the country,” he said.

“We’re at the precipice of something

really special for Parramatta and as we go

through that growth and look to transform

through projects like the light rail, the

Sydney Metro, Parramatta Powerhouse,

the aquatic centre and the Parramatta

Square development, it’s an amazing

thing to be able to contribute not only as a

Councillor but as Lord Mayor.’’

Cr Issa will replace Councillor Bob

Dwyer, who has announced he will retire

come the December election to spend

more time with his family.

Deputy Lord Mayor Michelle Garrard

retained her position, which she has held

since 2017.

In Cumberland, Mayor Steve Christou

retained his position and Councillor

Michael Zaiter replaced Councillor Eddy

Sarkis as Deputy.

Cr Christou has held the position

since 2019 and thanked his family and

colleagues for their support over the

course of his mayoral commitments.

“I am looking forward to continuing my

unwavering commitment to the Cumberland

community” he said.

The Local Government Election will be

held on Saturday, December 4.

Residents must register to vote by October

25 via the NSW Electoral Commission.

COVID-safe protocols will exist at all

polling places.

Rookwood General Cemetery makes

live-streamed funeral and cremation

services more affordable.

Funerals have changed to keep the community safe in

these times, Rookwood General Cemetery has therefore

implemented initiatives to ensure family and friends are

able to say goodbye.

Rookwood is trying to ease some of the burden for families

during this diffi cult time. After community consultation,

they have reduced the price of the All Souls ceremonial

venue for funeral services. Weekday services are now $620

(previously $950). A cost-effective cremation service is also

available; along with a no-attendance cremation offering

for families that would like to have a cremation now and a

memorial service later.

“The ritual of a funeral is recognised as an important part

of the grieving process. We offer live-streaming from the

All Souls for no additional cost so families can connect,

support and grieve together after losing a loved one,” says

Natalie Gane, Director of Marketing & Client Services.

PN45124

For more information visit

www.rookwoodcemetery.com.au

or call 8575 8100

“Rookwood’s services and memorial areas are created with

dignity and affordability in mind. We believe urgent action

is required so all communities have access to affordable

funeral services”, said Natalie. “This price reduction is a

small step towards minimising funeral debt and creating

affordability for families”.

Troy Dodds

@troydodds

Preparing to live with the virus

From Monday, the whole ‘live with the

virus’ concept will go from political rhetoric

to reality.

It’ll be interesting to watch how people

react, especially after 18 months of social

distancing, mask wearing and avoiding

other people like the plague, for want of

a better term.

We’ll have to accept crowds again. We’ll

also have to accept rising case numbers.

Over the next little while, venues will

need a miracle to avoid some sort of COV-

ID scare. Eventually, it’ll become ‘normal’.

This next little period will be challenging

and interesting to watch unfold.

“What will you miss once things are

back to normal?” Keen Parra News readers

might recall this was the question

posed provocatively by editor Troy Dodds

in the last edition.

Clearly, Stockholm Syndrome is more

prevalent than we thought. Who could

possibly miss lockdown, was my first reaction.

A good friend of mine and his wife have

been driven berserk juggling busy jobs

with home-schooling in recent months.

He rang me absolutely stoked that his

kids are being summoned back a week

early.

For many of us, for all sorts of reasons,

it’s been a trying time.

Troy made clear his tongue was planted

firmly in cheek. Nonetheless, his challenge

is worth contemplating. Here in

Parramatta, we’ve had little choice but to

make the best of the situation – and many

of us have only survived by finding new

habits and routines that bring joy to our

lives.

The main thing I’ll miss are the walks.

Sure, there’s nothing to prevent me continuing

them when Sydney opens up,

although I imagine the distractions of a

beautiful city will get in the way.

However, I’m now more convinced

than ever of Parramatta’s beauty. With its

sweet-scented cherry blossoms, Wistaria

Gardens evokes Tokyo in springtime.

And Parramatta Park is like a great painting,

slightly different on each encounter

– on a fine day or a moody one, vivid at

lunchtime and sombre at dusk. We need

to hold onto this place with all we’ve got.

I’ve had three other main loops. Heading

east from Parramatta ferry wharf

along the cycleway. The run to Northmead

Officeworks and back (hey, why

not combine a bit of exercise with some

scanning and printing?). And my ultimate

guilty pleasure – the run to El Jannah

chicken in Granville. They’ve been

doing a roaring trade, and why not? What

they are performing is in every way an essential

service.

We tried curfew, of course. Nobody is

going to miss that.

But one benefit was the time discipline

it enforced. When you’re only halfway

around Parramatta Park with 10 minutes

left, it’s now or never. There were several

times I’d have given Peter Bol a run for his

money in that last 800 metres to get home

by 8.59pm.

I’ll miss music. One of the first purchases

I made as lockdown descended was a

new speaker from JB Hi-Fi. Just as older

generations settled in with hot cocoa beside

the wireless, I spent wonderful hours

with Apple Music on weekends branching

out into different genres and new artists.

I’ll also miss the quiet: the couple of

weeks when there was no construction.

Later during lockdown, when works resumed,

I remember laughing as Business

Western Sydney Executive Director David

Borger struggled to be heard on a Zoom

forum over a complete racket occurring

outside his window.

There’s nothing more Parramatta than

construction.

That’s the blessing and curse of living in

a big city.

But not having it for a couple of weeks

was different.

I’ll miss my local cafes. Arriving just before

closing time at Parramatta’s Bourke

Street Bakery and being loaded up with

free pastries, quiches and pies. The simple

pleasure of just sitting outside with a

chai.

Lockdown for some has been a time of

enforced solitude, but also mindfulness.

It hasn’t all been bad.

We have to get comfortable with ourselves,

because that’s who we’re stuck

with for the rest of our lives.

How COVID put

brakes on circus

NICOLA BARTON

Their days are usually filled with

excitement, laughter and applause

but things have been a little quieter

for the performers of the Stardust Circus,

as COVID-19 brings life on the road to a

standstill.

For three months the 42 members of the

Stardust family have called Rosehill home,

after lockdown put the brakes on the show

after just two performances.

Since then performers, trainers and

their families have lived on site, at the

corner of James Ruse Drive and Grand

Avenue, alongside some of their furry cast

members.

Janice Lennon co-owns the circus with

her husband Lindsay, along with five

brothers and sisters from the West circus

family.

The families, their partners and children

live in caravans travelling with the show.

Ms Lennon said most spend their days

training or taking care of the animals and

that children on site are home-schooled.

“Everything had to be cancelled, it’s

been a bit tough,” she said.

“Everyone is still practicing in the tent

each day and doing some maintenance

things to keep busy, as well as trying to

stay in condition.”

It’s not the first time the show has been

disrupted by the pandemic, after they

were stuck in Richmond during last year’s

restrictions.

But now some relief for the entertainment

industry is in sight after Premier

Gladys Berejiklian recently announced

the NSW Reopening Roadmap.

This state’s outdoor ticketed and seated

events will be able to resume with a 500

person capacity once the state hits an 80

per cent vaccination rate.

Entertainment facilities including

cinemas, theatres and music halls will be

able to operate with a one person per 4sqm

rule or at 75 per cent fixed seated capacity.

Ms Lennon said the cast is fully vaccinated

and are hopeful for an end of October

return.

“Everyone is itching to get back performing,”

she said.

The show was scheduled to travel to

Warriewood next, but Stardust will be

sticking around Parramatta for a few

weeks once allowed to open, to ensure

local families get to witness the spectacular

show.

ISSA

As a long-serving Councillor for Parramatta,

I am honoured to have been elected as the

City’s new Lord Mayor at a Council Meeting

on 27 September.

I would like to thank my fellow Councillors

for their support and confidence in voting

me into this role, as well as Cr Bob Dwyer

for his leadership over the last two years.

I look forward to helping our City navigate

its way out of lockdown and welcoming back

workers, students and visitors to Parramatta.

I remain committed to advocating for and

serving the community through the ongoing

delivery of Council services and its many

City-shaping projects.

The future for the City of Parramatta is bright,

and I am proud to be playing a part in

Cr Bob Dwyer.

City of Parramatta Deputy Lord Mayor Cr Michelle

Thanking our volunteers

At a recent Council Meeting, we recognised the

numerous community groups, organisations

hard to support our communities during the

COVID-19 lockdowns.

Council has also sent a note of thanks to

the 80-plus local organisations who have

provided additional services or adapted

their usual offerings to support vulnerable

members of our community.

With the pandemic creating unprecedented

challenges and uncertainty for many people,

it was important to acknowledge all those

who have pivoted to provide essential

services, whether it has been by distributing

emergency food and essentials hampers,

supporting family and domestic violence

victims, or assisting community members

in isolation.

Thank you to everyone who stepped up to

help out during this challenging time.

Epping Aquatic Centre open

Following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions,

Council has reopened the Epping Aquatic

Centre with entry conditions that meet

Reserve in Harris Park, and Dundas Park in

Dundas Valley) will also reopen soon, once

Cafe labelled an “insult”

New cafe doesn’t align with site’s historical significance, advocates say

NICOLA BARTON

Members of the Parramatta

Female Factory Friends say

plans for a new cafe inside the

North Parramatta Heritage Core is an

“insult” to the historic site.

The proposed works are to be located

within the Female Factory/Lunatic

Asylum Precinct of the Cumberland

Hospital East Campus, within the former

boiler room and dining area.

The project is part of the broader

Parramatta North program, which

includes the establishment of the Western

Sydney Start-Up Hub.

But descendants and history advocates

believe the National Heritage site deserves

better, with activation that would complement

its historical significance, rather

than just serve commercial purposes.

Cate Whittaker is a Parramatta Female

Factory Friends’ Committee member,

social historian and playwright of ‘Forgotten’,

based on the rebellion at the factory

in 1827 and said the cafe plans ignore the

significance of the site.

“There is a Master Plan for this site

An artist’s impression of the new cafe at the Parramatta Female Factory.

developed by Urban Growth, which would

address its National and NSW Heritage

site listings and ensure its reuse is

compatible with its outstanding historical

significance, however this plan has not yet

been completed,” she said.

“This now means this site is being used

for whatever the NSW Government wants,

which is for any type of commercial

activity without regard to its historical

significance.

“There are other buildings outside the

historical core that could be used for this

cafe, but there is a blasé indifference, if not

deliberate arrogance, towards ignoring

this unique world site, the first female

convict factory in a nation uniquely

founded on convicts. This site has actually

great commercial value as a tourist site.”

Ms Whittaker also raised concerns over

pedestrian safety for the proposed loading

bay and access road.

A Property & Development NSW spokesperson

said the proposed cafe has been

approved by Heritage NSW in accordance

with the Heritage Act and “will follow best

practice heritage conservation and adaptive

re-use practices”.

“Property and Development NSW is

working collaboratively with stakeholders,

including the Parramatta Female Factory

Friends, and we look forward to continuing

to engage in an open and respectful

way as the Heritage Precinct is brought to

life,” the spokesperson said.

The Parramatta North Program Business

Case, which includes proposed funding

for ongoing conservation, renewal and

activation initiatives, including future

museum opportunities, is still being

considered by the NSW Government.

NSW is on the verge of

reaching its targeted 70

per cent double dose milestone,

with the 80 per cent

mark not far behind.

The NSW Government has released the draft Greater Sydney Water Strategy for public

comment. The public exhibition runs until 8 November 2021.

The NSW Government is ensuring that the Greater Sydney region—including the Illawarra,

Blue Mountains and Sydney—has the resilient and sustainable water supply it needs to

thrive, now and for future generations. This draft strategy recognises that new approaches

are needed to secure the region’s water supply as our population and economy grow,

especially in times of drought. It outlines the challenges facing water management in

Greater Sydney, proposes principles and priorities to guide our decisions around water, and

considers all available options in determining the best way forward.

The draft strategy places a strong emphasis on conserving water and using water more


future water supply. It also explores how we can create a cooler and greener city, protect

our waterways and coastal environments, and support the water interests of Aboriginal

communities.

Wentworthville: Teens charged

after dramatic carjacking

Four teenagers have been charged

following a carjacking in Wentworthville

and police pursuit.

Just after 7pm on Monday, September

27, a 42-year-old man parked his BMW

X1 in the lower-level car park of a shopping

centre at Wentworthville.

He got out and walked to the shops

while his passenger, a 42-year-old

woman, remained in the vehicle.

Shortly after, four teenagers

approached the BMW and opened the

driver’s door before allegedly producing

a knife, demanding the keys.

The woman handed over the keys and

got out of the vehicle before the group

drove off.

The man returned to the car park and

attempted to block the exit, however, the

BMW manoeuvred around him, forcing

him out of the way.

Just after midnight on Tuesday,

September 28, investigators received

information regarding the stolen BMW’s

location and PolAir located the vehicle at

Seven Hills.

The BMW was monitored as it travelled

from Seven Hills along the M4 to North

Sydney and travelled back westbound

on the M2 and M7 before it was located

abandoned on Woodley Crescent,

Glendenning, about 1.30am.

Ground police attended, and with the

assistance of the Dog Unit, four teenagers

were located at a home on Simms

Road, Oakhurst, and arrested.

Three boys including a 15-year-old and

two 13-year-olds with a 14-year-old girl,

were taken to Mt Druitt Police Station.

The 13-year-old boy was charged with

‘aggravated robbery in company’, and

‘police pursuit – not stop – drive recklessly’.

The 15-year-old boy was charged with

‘aggravated robbery in company’, and

‘be carried in conveyance take without

consent of owner’.

Both were refused bail and appeared at

a children’s court on Tuesday, September

28.

The 14-year-old girl was charged with

Morrison Government

cuts COVID support

ADVERTISEMENT

Julie Owens Bulletin

parra news » Tuesday, October 5, 2021

Despite desperate pleas from workers and businesses -

and a staggering drop in payroll jobs during lockdown

– the Morrison Government has announced it will start to

cut COVID support payments when 70% of eligible NSW

residents are fully vaccinated.

NSW is expected to hit this target on October 10, in less than

a week. There is no local data telling us how many businesses

are currently relying on JobSaver, but I am sure this sudden

change will have a huge impact on our local economy.

We do know that more than one in 10 payroll jobs in

Parramatta have been lost since the start of lockdown and

it’s estimated that 1 in 5 local workers are relying on the

COVID-19 Disaster Payment.

While nobody expects these support payments to go on

forever, hitting vaccination targets and easing restrictions

does not mean people automatically get their jobs and

businesses back.

Parramatta needs a plan for economic recovery. The

economic pain won’t disappear overnight. In some cases it

will last for years. I fear these cuts, made with less than two

weeks notice, will make things worse.

If the Morrison Government delivered on vaccines and

quarantine as quickly as it has moved to cut support, we may

not have gone into lockdown in the first place.

According to the announcement, once NSW is 70% fully

vaccinated the Morrison Government will start cutting

JobSaver payments and people receiving the COVID-19

Disaster Payment will need to re-apply every week.

The Morrison Government plans to start cutting support for

workers and businesses on October 10, in less than a week

Once NSW reaches 80% vaccination the Disaster Payment

will be cut for two weeks then cease altogether. The Morrison

Government will stop funding JobSaver and a fraction of the

original support will be paid until 30 November.

This Morrison Government is cutting support with no plan for

Parramatta’s economic recovery. Easing restrictions does not

mean the economic burden will be lifted. If you are worried

about how these cuts will affect you or your

business, please get in touch with my office.

I’ll keep fighting for a fair go for Parramatta

On the air... from home

How community radio has survived and thrived during COVID pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic may have

changed life dramatically, but the

demand for community news has

never been more important, with one

community radio station finding creative

ways to keep their vital service going.

Being located in Blacktown, an ‘Area of

Concern’ with strict lockdowns for months

on end, has forced SWR 99.9 to adapt to the

new world of Coronavirus while continuing

to deliver its important news and

cultural programs to the community.

The high-tech station has set up broadcasters

from home to get through the

pandemic.

SWR 99.9 FM Chairman Alex Agaciak

said despite the changes, the station was

in a strong position to continue broadcasting.

“COVID-19 has severely impacted

community radio right around the country,”

Mr Agaciak said.

“We’ve been fortunate. A lot of stations

have been hit a lot harder than us. As soon

as all this started, we put our own restrictions

and guidelines in place.

“We’ve got some great techs here behind

the scenes that have helped out, and a

membership of dedicated volunteers who

Linden has been able to broadcast from home.

were determined to keep broadcasting.

As a result, 80 per cent of our broadcasters

have been able to set up at home and can

remotely get their shows on air. It just goes

to show the passion in community radio.”

He said modern technology had been a

great benefit to the station.

“I’ve been here close to 15 years now, and

you couldn’t even imagine doing anything

like this 15 years ago, we would’ve just had

to hit the switch and run the station on

automation until it all finished,” he said.

Paul Rands has been able to keep his show on the air.

“These days it’s amazing what you can

do, but you need passionate and committed

members, which fortunately SWR has

in spades”

That passion and commitment to

community was recognised earlier this

year with a Parliamentary Speech by State

Member for Blacktown, Stephen Bali.

It has also seen SWR 99.9’s listener base

grow to an estimated 200,000 listeners a

week.

According to the Community Broadcasting

Association of Australia (CBAA), close

to six million listeners tune into community

radio every week.

Mr Agaiciak said the COVID-19

pandemic had highlighted the importance

of local stations like SWR to the

communities they serve.

“The thirst for local content and local

news has been there for a while and I think

it’s even more relevant now people are

spending more time in their local community

more than they’ve ever been,” he said.

Community says thanks

Signs erected in Cumberland region to thank frontline COVID workers

NICOLA BARTON

Signs have been erected around

the Cumberland region, thanking

frontline and essential workers for

their sacrifice throughout the pandemic.

Cumberland City Councillor Ola Hamed

put forward the motion and said it was

important the Council acknowledged

their efforts during this particularly difficult

time.

“COVID-19 has now touched each and

every one of us in one way or another,” she

said.

“The people caring for our community

during this difficult time are frontline and

essential workers and I’d like to express

thanks to them.

“Nurses, doctors, hospital workers,

paramedics, firies, police, teachers, the

Australian Defence Force, taxi drivers,

bus drivers, truck drivers, finance workers,

our own staff and many more have

and continue to put their lives on the line

to ensure our community is taken care of.

“In times of crisis we start to show who

we truly are and frontline essential workers

have certainly demonstrated that they

Cumberland City Councillor Ola Hamed with Detective Superintendent Paul Devaney.

are the bravest, most compassionate, and

generous people there are.

“Thank you for serving and caring for our

society in this pandemic, and every day.”

Councillors unanimously supported the

motion and banners were swiftly manufactured.

Councillor Michael Zaiter welcomed the

motion and said he hopes it brings a smile

to those essential workers as they drive

past.

“They play a vital role in our community

and if we don’t thank them, we’re worse as

individuals,” he said.

The signs have now been installed

around frontline workplaces such as the

ambulance depots in Auburn and Merrylands,

Auburn, Merrylands and Granville

Police Stations and hospitals at Auburn

and Westmead.

“I know it might often be a thankless job

but please know there are so many of us

out here that are so appreciative of you,”

Cr Hamed said.

“I cannot even begin to imagine the world

you have been living in during COVID.

Please know our thoughts are with you.

You have all our love and support, and our

thanks.”

[TOPFOLIO]Tuesday, [MONTH] [DOM3], [YEAR]

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

Aquarians often feel restless, rebellious

and agitated. This week, with the

planets illuminating your philosophy

zone, you need to slow down and look

within as you contemplate, meditate

and ruminate. Negotiation planet Venus

also encourages you to hold out the olive

branch of peace (especially to a stressed

friend or colleague). So your motto for

the moment is from birthday great, music

legend John Lennon. “Turn off your

mind, relax and float downstream.”

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

Wednesday’s New Moon spotlights

close relationships and trust issues.

However, with Mercury stuck in retrograde

mode, you could suffer from a lack

of motivation, low libido or just plain

exhaustion. So pace yourself Pisces and

don’t take on too much. The weekend

stars highlight sensual pleasures, intense

negotiations and vivid dreams. But

be careful you don’t blurt out something

that you later regret. Think (carefully)

before you open your mouth and speak!

ARIES

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

This week a partnership or joint venture

could veer off in an unpredictable

direction as Mercury reverses through

your relationship zone. Or a work colleague

could surprise you by making

a decision that seems like a backward

step. And are you being rather lazy? With

Mars (your power planet) and retrograde

Mercury both transiting through

lackadaisical Libra, you could find your

motivation is missing and your adventurous

streak has gone AWOL!

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

You’ll experience the greatest satisfaction

if you share your professional

dreams with other like-minded people.

Collective collaboration is the key. But

you need to think long-term and be

patient. Do your best to get the balance

right between being creative and being

thorough; between having inspirational

ideas and making practical progress.

Mercury is in retrograde motion until

October 18, which could disrupt your

daily routine.

GEMINI

MAY 22 TO JUNE 21

CANCER

JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

LEO

JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

VIRGO

AUGUST 24 TO SEPTEMBER 23

With Mercury (your ruling planet) in

retrograde mode (until October 18) expect

travel disruptions, phone frustrations

and/or computer chaos that will

test your limited patience. So how can

you survive Mercury retro in a reasonably

sane state of mind? Make sure you

back-up all your computer files; allow

plenty of time to get to appointments

and catch flights; check and then double-check

everything; and be incredibly

adaptable. Plus maintain your sense of

humour!

If you are crabby with friends or family

members this week, then they will be

in the mood to fight back against you! So

do your best to be more compassionate

and generous towards your treasured

loved ones. Plus try to view a troubled

close relationship from a much more

philosophical perspective. As birthday

great John Lennon observed, “We’ve

got this gift of love but love is like a precious

plant. You’ve got to keep watering

it. You’ve got to really look after it and

nurture it.”

You’re in the mood to talk, text, tweet,

publish and/or podcast as the New

Moon, Mercury and Mars activate your

communication zone. But with Mercury

retrograde, make sure you convey your

message clearly and concisely, otherwise

misunderstandings are likely. Love

planet Venus transits into your friendship

and love zone (on Thursday) so Friday,

Saturday or Sunday is a good time to

organise a catch-up with your bestie or a

romantic rendezvous, even if it has to be

over Zoom.

Does it feel as if your dreams are on

hold or your finances are going backwards?

This week retrograde Mercury

slows things down and increases frustrations.

But then lucky Venus swoops

in and encourages you to pair up with

a loved one and make your combined

dreams come true. You’ll need to be

patient though in the days ahead! Your

motto is from birthday great John Lennon,

“A dream you dream alone is only

a dream. A dream you dream together is

reality.”

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

Stylish Librans have a passion for

fashion and Wednesday’s New Moon is

in your sign. So it’s the perfect week to

refresh your appearance via a hot new

hairstyle, a makeup makeover or a creative

wardrobe revamp. But with Mercury

reversing through your sign (until October

18) and Venus (your patron planet)

shifting into extravagant Sagittarius,

watch that impulse buys don’t burn a big

hole in your budget. Remember – some

of the best things in life are free!

Expect a rather intense week as the

New Moon, fiery Mars and retrograde

Mercury stir up inner compulsions,

submerged secrets and hidden resentments.

You could also become obsessed

about someone from your complicated

past. Smart Scorpios will learn from your

mistakes, let go and then move on. Inspiration

for the week is from birthday

great, actress Kate Winslet. “The good

and bad things are what form us as people

… change makes us grow.”

When it comes to your involvement

with a friend, acquaintance, colleague,

client, customer, group, club or organisation,

this week looks tricky as fiery

Mars and retrograde Mercury stimulate

your argumentative streak. So do your

best to avoid aggravating others, especially

from Thursday onwards when

Venus transits into your sign. October 7

through until November 5 is the time to

smoke the peace pipe as you socialise,

compromise and sympathise.

Impulsive Mars and retrograde Mercury

are disrupting your career plans and

future aspirations. So Wednesday’s New

Moon is the perfect time to revise, reassess

and reboot. Think of creative ways

that you can navigate the unpredictable

COVID landscape, adapt professionally

and pivot personally. Draw inspiration

from birthday great, actress and activist

Susan Sarandon, “I take responsibility

for the ups and downs of my life, and

that is very liberating.”

BLOCKTACULAR

BOOST TO CAREER

EMILY FESZCZUK

Australia’s most successful renovation

reality program, ‘The

Block’ is smashing through its

17th season.

The ‘Fan v Faves’ format has

so far served some shake-ups, stunning reveals

and shocking scandals.

Wangi Wangi couple, Kirsty Akers and

Jesse Anderson are giving it their all when

it comes to going up against the other new

contestants and all-star couples.

Kirsty told Parra News they were over the

moon when they took out their first room

win for their kitchen.

“It felt amazing... we always wanted to

win that week because having the bonus of

a wine cellar on your listing is just incredible

and kitchens are the heart and soul of

a house,” Kirsty said.

“Kitchens sell houses so we were so

proud of what we created, especially with

so many obstacles and all-nighters just to

get it done.”

Taking on the judge’s comments, the

‘country music kids’ style is starting to

evolve but their budget could pose a major

issue.

“We started focusing more on not just

what we would want in our dream home

but tried to appeal to a broader market and

looked at houses selling around the area.

The budget was tough for us because our

house is so big and had around seven extra

spaces so we had to make sure to put

aside money for the big expenses like the

kitchen and backyard,” she said.

With other contestants accessing private

scheduling information causing a divide

between the couples, Kirsty said the

‘cheating scandal’ impacted the whole

show.

“At the time it wasn’t as awkward as it is

watching it back but we missed out on so

much drama because we were on the other

side of the road,” she said.

“It definitely went on to effect every week

on the show as the schedule then had to

change.”

Switching from renovator to country artist,

Kirsty has also just released her new

single ‘For Love’.

“I recorded it just before we made the

show and it is all about my love story with

Jesse who has been my biggest fan and always

does so much to help my career,” she

said.

“I am excited for the release and for the

opportunity ‘The Block’ could give us,

especially since we still can’t work in the

music industry so it could be a real life

changer for us.”

‘The Block’ airs Sunday at 7.00pm and

Monday to Wednesday at 7.30pm on

Nine. You can catch up on episodes via

Parramatta to host Matildas clash

NATHAN TAYLOR

Sydney’s much-anticipated return to

hosting international sport has been

locked in, with the NSW Government

announcing a two-match series between the

Matildas and Brazil later this month.

The games will be played at CommBank

Stadium in Parramatta on Saturday, October

23 and Tuesday, October 26, with a controlled

number of fans able to attend in line with the

Government’s Reopening NSW roadmap,

following NSW Health approval of quarantine

arrangements for players, coaches and support

staff.

Deputy Premier John Barilaro said the games

have only been made possible due to the vigilance

of NSW residents during lockdown.

“It’s been a long winter for fans of live sport in

NSW, and I’m excited to announce that thanks

to the community’s commitment to achieving

our vaccination targets, international sport

will return to Sydney in late October,” he said.

“As COVID restrictions ease, in line with our

roadmap, a limited number of full vaccinated,

football-starved fans in Sydney will have the

opportunity to see some of the best players in

the world right here in NSW.”

Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said this was

The Matildas are coming to Parramatta to take on Brazil.

fantastic news for the major sports capital of

Australia.

“We’ve been in hiatus during the COVID

outbreak, but this exciting schedule shows

that Sydney is back and ready to welcome the

return of international sport,” she said.

“There is plenty more to look forward to, with

the Sydney Ashes Test match in early January,

as well as international one day and T20

cricket, and a full program of BBL and WBBL

games and A-League and W-League football.”

Football Australia CEO James Johnson said

bringing our national teams home has been a

priority for some time now.

“Football Australia has been working tirelessly

behind the scenes with both the Federal

and State Governments to bring our national

teams home. This is a huge win for Australian

football,” he said.

The international football matches will be

played under strict COVID-safe arrangements,

in line with the roadmap.

The Brazilian team will be required to quarantine

under strict NSW Health protocols,

with strong measures in place to protect the

strength of the quarantine environment and

the broader NSW community.

Tickets for the games will go on sale shortly

with spectator capacity to be determined in

line with Public Health Orders.
