JULIE CALLS IT QUITS

Parramatta will have a new Federal MP

after the next election after Julie Owens

announced her retirement after nearly

two decades in the role.

Ms Owens made the shock announcement

last week, confirming she will bring down

the curtain on her 18 years as Parramatta MP,

representing Labor.

She will stay on until the next election, which

will be held at some point next year.

“It has been an honour to represent this

diverse and endlessly fascinating community

since 2004, but the time has come to spend

more time with my family, especially my

grandchildren,” Ms Owens said in a statement

issued last Thursday.

Tributes came from both sides of politics,

including from Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

“She is a hard campaigner, we know that on

this side of the house,” he said.

“She’s been of diligent service to the community.”

Ms Owens suffered a swing against her at the

2019 election but ultimately retained the seat

for Labor, which now holds Parramatta by 3.5

per cent.

Ms Owens took the seat from the Liberal

Party at the 2004 election, retaining it in 2007,

2010, 2013, 2016 and then again in 2019.

Labor will now search for a replacement

candidate for the next election.

NICOLA BARTON

As international travel starts

to take-off for the fully vaccinated,

locals are wasting no

time in booking their next holiday

destinations.

From yesterday, November 1,

Australia’s international border

reopened for the first time in some

18 months.

Fully vaccinated Australians will

no longer require an exemption or

have to apply to the Department of

Home Affairs to leave the country,

however those who are unvaccinated

will have to wait until December 1 to

avoid the need for exemptions.

All forms of quarantine for vaccinated

travellers entering NSW will

also end.

It’s a light at the end of the tunnel

for the travel industry, brought to its

knees by the pandemic. Many businesses

of which were not so lucky to

make it out the other side.

For Pendle Hill residents and

owners of Zara World Travel, Zahid

Hassan and Ismat Jarin, there is now

hope after an extremely difficult

period.

The pair had to close down their

Toongabbie shop front last year and

are now running operations from

home.

Ms Jarin shed a tear when Prime

Minister Scott Morrison first

announced international travel

would resume.

“When we heard international

travel was coming back soon, I cried;

after the dark there is always morning,”

she said.

Mr Hassan said locals are wasting

no time in booking a holiday, with

business picking up significantly

over the past few weeks.

“Many people are eager to see

family and some have had loved ones

pass away due to COVID-19, so most

people we find are trying to get over

to see family,” he said.

Whether it be discounted flights

or cruise packages, Mr Hassan said

there are a lot of attractive deals on

offer.

For those hesitant to travel just yet,

Arm doors and cross-check

because travel is finally back!

Owners of Zara World Travel Ismat Jarin and Zahid Hassan.

he said a lot of airlines and travel

companies are coming to the table

with added safety nets to encourage

people to book.

Emirates is offering free multi-risk

travel insurance and COVID-19

cover, provided by AIG Travel, to

all customers who purchase tickets

from December 1.

Mr Hassan does wa r n t hat t ravel lers

will need to pay for COVID-19 PCR

tests prior to departure and arrivals,

which comes at a cost of about $150

per traveller.

He also recommends, for those who

are ready to book, to consider doing

so through a travel agent as online

scams are circulating.

entertainment careers, one that we were

all touched by in one way or another.

Farewell, Bert. I have very little doubt

that you’ll be up there with old mates,

making the rest of the place laugh.

Dealing with the vax stragglers

This year has been a struggle for all sorts

of reasons.

Here in Parramatta, we were separated

from friends and family for months.

Fortunately, as the vaccination rate has

climbed and health orders have relaxed,

social events are in full swing.

And everybody just assumes everybody

else is vaccinated.

You don’t need to swipe your QR code

or show your immunisation record to go

to a mate’s place.

At the time of writing 93.4 per cent of

those aged over 16 in our state have taken

their first dose; 86.5 per cent their second.

The number of first doses continues to

inch up as hesitancy wanes – and presumably

more workplaces issue mandates.

Nonetheless, at least a couple of

hundred thousand people remain unvaccinated

in NSW. Chances are you may

know one.

There is a person who I won’t name,

close to my heart, who is unvaccinated.

Someone before the Delta outbreak I

used to see regularly for years and years.

Yet someone who I’ve decided not to see

any more for the moment because there

is a gulf between us that just cannot be

bridged.

There’s no medical reason for their decision.

As best I can tell, it’s based on a

collection of views that have hardened

over time: the long-term medical effects

of the vaccines are unproven; they don’t

like the way certain vaccines are formulated

(many of the unvaccinated are now

“waiting for Novavax” – even though

its supply to Australia could be months

away). One or two shots will not be the

end, they say. We’ll be getting vaccinated

forever. Another person I know still believes

debunked theories about reduced

fertility.

During the lockdown it was hard to reason

with people. You weren’t sure where

they were getting their information from

and couldn’t physically be with them to

persuade them otherwise; to actually

show them a news article or sit down by

their laptop and discredit their sources

one by one.

Initially, I used to have arguments; even

hurl abuse; try and rally others in our orbit

to change this person’s opinion.

But after a while I realised it was a futile

mission and I had to respect their independence.

“I don’t care anymore,” I told them last

week, “You’re entitled to do what you

want, but 95 per cent of society doesn’t

agree with you and we’ve made the decision

to accept the uncertainties and get

on with life.”

I still worry about this person. Not because

they are likely to infect others –

they barely go out.

As far as I can tell, a walk outside, a

visit to the shops, an hour in church. But

because they are quite old themselves –

meaning that a brush with the virus could

mean death.

We know that unvaccinated people are

10 times more likely to contract COV-

ID than vaccinated people. And these

chance encounters will become more

common as we fully open up. What if a

well-meaning shop assistant (vaccinated

but carrying the virus) gets too close?

What if someone stands right beside

them at a pedestrian crossing?

Philosopher Noam Chomsky has argued

that the unvaccinated should be

isolated to avoid endangering the community.

Some move to areas like Byron or Mullumbimby

to be around kindred souls.

But that’s not an option for the person I

know.

I imagine them holding proudly and defiantly

to their position to the bitter end,

content in the margins, excluding themselves

from the light.

Boarding house blues

Despite a hard-fought campaign, Epping locals lose boarding house battle

NICOLA BARTON

Epping residents have lost their fight

against a boarding house proposal

on Kent Street, after the NSW Land

and Environment Court ruled in favour of

the developer.

The Development Application (DA) for

73 Kent Street has now been approved

and will comprise a two-storey, 12-room

boarding house, car park and communal

space.

A group of residents rejected the plans

on the basis of the area’s character, as well

as the accessibility of the site and believed

some details in the plans were “deceitful”.

While the DA was originally rejected by

the City of Parramatta Council and the

Local Planning Panel, it was only for minor

issues, such as missing final documents.

Epping resident Jill Fisher said: “The

City of Parramatta Council’s assessment

officer neglected to recognise, during the

application process, that the development

breached relevant clauses of the Affordable

Rental Housing State Environmental

Planning Policy 2009 (ARHSEPP)”.

The ARHSEPP states, amongst other

Epping residents rejected plans for 12-room boarding house on Kent Street.

criteria, that the site must be within 400

metres walking distance of a bus stop,

with a regular bus service that has at least

one bus per hour between 6am and 9pm

Monday to Friday and between 8am and

6pm on weekends.

“The only bus stop that met the ‘accessible

area’ criteria for the site served the 550

route that travels to Macquarie Park only,”

Ms Fisher said.

“There is no bus stop for the return

journey, nor for a journey in the opposite

direction to Parramatta that meets the

criteria.

“Our community feels severely let down

by the City of Parramatta Council, right

from the flawed assessment officer’s

approach, to Council’s agreed stance that

the site is an accessible area under legislation.”

Residents alongside the Epping Civic

Trust, Epping Ward Councillor Donna

Davis and Senior Electorate Officer for

Epping MP Dominic Perrottet, Isaac

Spencer all spoke at both the Local Planning

Panel and NSW Land and Environment

Court to argue that the assessment

officer’s report was flawed.

Despite their efforts, the Commissioner

Tim Horton ruled in favour of the development

and stated he was “satisfied” that the

ARHSEPP standards were met.

“The Commissioner agreed that the

location of the property was within an

accessible area and that the development

was compatible with the local area,” a City

of Parramatta Council spokesperson said.

AN UPDATE

FROM COUNCIL

Rydalmere Park upgrades underway

Construction on the $6.9 million second stage of

the Rydalmere Park Masterplan is now underway.

The works will include new turf on the park’s

southern playing fields, as well as drainage,

irrigation and improved lighting. A stormwater

reuse tank will be installed, along with spectator

seating, cricket practice nets, a new cricket pitch,

picnic tables and bubblers. The South Street

and Park Road carparks will also be upgraded.

Once completed, Rydalmere Park will be a

high-performance sports hub with first-class

soccer fields and cricket nets, which will help

local athletes develop their skills. The new and

improved park will also serve as a valuable

community space for recreation and leisure.

The upgrades have been funded through the

NSW Government’s Greater Sydney Sports

Facility Fund and City of Parramatta Council

and are expected to be completed by mid-2022.

Parramatta aquatic centre update

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

and leisure centre is rapidly taking shape as

construction progresses at the Mays Hills Precinct

site in Parramatta Park.

Designed to blend into the natural park setting,

the centre will feature a 50-metre, 10-lane

outdoor pool with ramp entry and poolside

seating; a 25-metre indoor recreational pool;

a dedicated indoor Learn to Swim pool; indoor

water playground; a modern gym and more

than 190 parking spaces. The $88.6 million

project is scheduled for completion in 2023.

New name for 5 Parramatta Square

The new civic, cultural and community centre at 5 Parramatta

Square has been named.

One of Parramatta’s most exciting projects finally

has a name. At a Council meeting last week,

Councillors endorsed the name Parramatta Hive,

abbreviated to Phive, for the City’s new civic,

cultural and community building located in the

heart of the City’s CBD.

The name reflects the activity and hype that will

take place in the new community facility, from

entertainment and events to historical, municipal

and educational services. Short for Parramatta

Hive, Phive is also a play on ‘five’, a nod to the

building’s location at 5 Parramatta Square.

As a centre for education, entertainment, events

and municipal services, Parramatta Hive will

undoubtedly become a communal hub that

belongs to everyone.

The six-storey building will also contain cultural

and exhibition spaces, a central city library

branch, café, community meeting rooms and

new Council Chambers.

The $130 million project is racing towards

completion, and it is set to open its doors mid

next year, coinciding with the completion of the

remaining stage of the Parramatta Square precinct.

There is also a Warami

Mittigar walk with a Darug

Elder, where participants can

learn about Parramatta’s First

Peoples, their connections to the

land and other aspects of local culture.

The two new mini-documentaries in the Parramatta

Foundations series (launched last year) are

about Music In Parramatta and 200 Years of the

Lancers, Brislington and the Female Factory.

This year also marks the 160th anniversary of

Parramatta Council.

To find out more about how Council has evolved

over the years, and about the other Foundations

Festival activities, visit the Foundations Festival

website at atparramatta.com/foundation-festival

Parramatta Lanes returns

The City of Parramatta is looking forward to

welcoming back music and food lovers with the

return of its popular annual food, music and art

festival, Parramatta Lanes, which will run from

16–20 November.

This year’s event will look a little different to

previous years, with local bars and restaurants

hosting live music and comedy shows, instead

of crowds converging on the City’s laneways.

From Thursday to Saturday evening, Heritage

Courtyard Pavilion on Marsden Street will be

transformed into Lil Lanes Bar – a ticketed

pop-up bar by Archie Rose with live music

performances.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to

experience a different side to the City with the

Parramatta Lanes Art Trail, featuring 15 works

created by some of Western Sydney’s most

talented artists.

For more information, visit:

atparramatta.com/lanes

Parramatta Foundation Festival

Parramatta’s rich history is on show this week

as the City celebrates its annual Foundation

Festival with a unique program of in-person

and online events.

For history buffs keen to take a step back in time,

Council and its heritage partners are offering

walking tours this weekend (6 & 7 November).

The tours include some of Parramatta’s most iconic

historical sites – from The Lancers Barracks and

Brislington Medical Museum to the Parramatta

Female Factory and Mays Hill Cemetery.

The new aquatic and leisure centre at Parramatta Park is

taking shape as works progress.

Parramatta Lanes returns to the City with an exciting new

program.

Please note: Since printed copies of many of our local newspapers are no longer available,

all Development Applications (DAs), items on exhibition, and public notices will now be available

via Council’s website: cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au

Council Meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 6.30pm. In line with

NSW Government’s easing of COVID-19 restrictions, fully vaccinated members of the public can

now attend in person. COVID-safe measures will be in place and attendees must check in, show

proof of vaccination status, and wear a face mask. The one person per 4 square metre rule will also

be in place. To view the live stream visit cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au/councilmeetings

Julie Owens to end reign as

Parramatta MP at election

NICOLA BARTON

Federal Parramatta MP Julie Owens

has announced she will retire

from the Australian Parliament.

First elected to the Federal seat of

Parramatta in 2004, she has represented

the community for 18 years.

Ms Owens thanked the people of

Parramatta and said it was a privilege to

serve the region.

“I can honestly say I’ve loved every

minute of it,” she said.

Parramatta is home to the most fantastic

people I have been blessed to meet so

many.

“It has been an honour to represent

this diverse and endlessly fascinating

community since 2004, but the time has

come to spend more time with my family,

especially my grandchildren.

“My goal in this job has always been to

make my community stronger, because

no one is better equipped to solve the

problems that we face and build a better

future for Parramatta than its community.

“It has been a joy to watch so many of

you see yourselves for the first time – to

recognise your value and unique contributions

– and to grow.”

Leader of the Opposition, Anthony

Julie Owens is calling it quits.

Albanese thanked Ms Owens for her

service.

“There is no member who has knocked

on my door more about the needs for her

electorate,” he said.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison also

acknowledged her dedication to the seat

of Parramatta.

“She is a hard campaigner, we know

that on this side of the house,” he said.

“She’s been of diligent service to the

community.”

Ms Owens said she would work everyday

up until the Federal Election.

Labor will be forced to preselect a new

candidate for the seat.

Exhibition to raise money for

important cancer services

NICOLA BARTON

Breast cancer survivors will bare

it all in an inspirational photography

exhibition and celebration

evening to fundraise for vital research.

Western Sydney local and breast cancer

survivor Veronica Leonardo will host the

exhibition, to be held at 107 Projects from

Monday, January 24 to Sunday, February

6, with a celebration evening to also be

held at Club Parramatta on Wednesday,

February 2, ahead of World Cancer Day.

Ms Leonardo’s breast cancer was

discovered at 40-years-old – a diagnosis

that came as a huge shock having no

family history of the disease.

“My breast cancer diagnosis was a

surprise because I felt like I was generally

doing the right things,” Ms Leonardo

said.

“I remember saying to my surgeon that

once the storm passes, I would try to

support other people through their own

cancer journey.

“Many people assume every aspect of

cancer treatment is covered by public

health, without realising the life-saving

treatment is covered but everything

outside of it isn’t, such as lymphedema

services.”

She said the support provided by Cancer

Cancer survivor Veronica Leonardo.

Council NSW during the most challenging

time of her life is something she will

never forget and so she has chosen them

as the beneficiary of the fundraising

event.

The exhibition will feature 10 women

cancer journey, illustrating with pride

their scars and embracing life post

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

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”.

Rosehill: Woman wanted since

2018 tracked down by police

A Rosehill woman, wanted on

outstanding warrants since 2018, finally

faced Parramatta Local Court recently.

Officers attached to Cumberland Police

Area Command have been conducting

inquiries into the whereabouts of the

46-year-old woman, wanted on four

outstanding warrants for deception,

property and traffic offences.

Following extensive inquiries, police

attended a unit on James Ruse Drive,

Rosehill, just after 11am on Thursday,

October 21.

Officers arrested the woman, before

seizing fraudulent identification cards,

and prohibited drugs.

She was taken to Granville Police

Station and charged with ‘possess

prohibited drug’ and ‘goods in custody

suspected of being stolen’.

Four outstanding warrants were also

executed.

Ermington: Woman charged after

teenage girl detained, assaulted

An Ermington woman is the third to be

charged, after a teenage girl was allegedly

detained and assaulted earlier this

year.

In July 2021, detectives from the State

Crime Command’s Child Abuse and

Sex Crimes Squad established Strike

Force Tumbridge to investigate reports

a 14-year-old girl had allegedly been

detained for several hours, assaulted and

supplied drugs by a man and woman

known to her.

So far during the investigation, a man

and woman, aged 24 and 39-years-old,

have been charged for their alleged roles

in the incident. They remain before the

courts.

Following further inquiries, police

attended an address in Ermington just

after 8pm on Wednesday, October 20

and arrested a 25-year-old woman.

She was taken to Parramatta Police

Station and charged with ‘kidnap in

company with intent serious indictable

occasion actual bodily harm’, ‘stalk and

intimidate intend fear physical etc harm’,

and ‘damage property by fire/explosive

with intent to injure’. The woman was

refused bail and appeared at Parramatta

Local Court on Thursday, October 21.

POLICE SNAPSHOT

Compiled by Nicola Barton

Parramatta: Two men in trouble

after drugs, money discovered

Two men will face court later this year,

after they were caught with prescription

drugs and a large sum of money in

Parramatta.

About 3.20pm on Friday, October 22,

officers conducting proactive patrols of

the Parramatta area attempted to speak

with two men on Arthur Street, near

George Street. One of the men ran from

the scene, hiding a bag underneath a

nearby parked car.

The pair, aged 32 and 41-years-old,

were stopped and the bag retrieved,

with officers locating $21,600 cash and

prescription medication.

The younger man was issued a Court

Attendance Notice (CAN) for ‘drive

motor vehicle during disqualification

period’.

The older man was taken to Westmead

Hospital, before being released and

taken to Parramatta Police Station,

where he was charged with ‘recklessly

deal with proceeds of crime’ and two

counts of ‘goods in personal custody

suspected of being stolen’.

More would-be dog owners caught

up in major scam operation

Detectives have laid 26 additional

charges against a man as part of an

investigation into his alleged role in

scamming more than $180,000 from

would-be dog owners.

In May this year, detectives

commenced an investigation into

reports of fraudulent online advertisements

for puppies – mostly English

Staffordshire Bull Terriers, and French

Bulldogs. Police allege a multinational

crime syndicate was behind the ads and

defrauded at least 23 buyers.

The man allegedly acted as a money

mule for the syndicate, receiving a total

of nearly $183,000 in deposits from the

buyers into his bank accounts, before

allegedly converting the money into

cryptocurrency.

Following extensive investigations,

detectives charged a 53-year-old man

on Tuesday, May 25. Since this time, a

further 50 buyers have been identified

and an additional 26 counts of ‘knowingly

deal with proceeds of crime’, was

laid out in court recently.

Local Hero of the month

Karabi Community and Development Services, Wentworthville

This month our unsung hero is not one

person, instead it’s a team of volunteers

at Karabi Wentworthville, under the

guidance of former Chairperson Sylvia

Granturco.

Karabi’s Seniors Knitting Group consists

of over 35 multicultural ladies coordinated

by Ms Granturco along with

Rafia Bechara and Emma Kroon.

During COVID, the volunteers at Karabi

have delivered food and a range of

household goods to several members of

the community.

During the Fires of 2019/2020, the team

knitted hundreds of items for those impacted.

During the floods, they knitted

over 500 items for victims of floods.

The team have continued to knit and

have delivered to disability schools,

nursing homes and hospitals.

Volunteers have knitted over 2,000

beanies and delivered them to hospitals

such as Westmead, Orange Base, Nepean,

Blacktown, Concord, Alloway and

many other Community based centres.

The Karabi volunteers collect plastic

bottle tops used for plastic prosthetics

at Westmead Hospital and also collect

books for the Street Library at Old Toongabbie

and clothing, toys and gifts for a

visually impaired school in the Philippines.

Thank you, Ms Granturco and all

the volunteers at Karabi, for all your work

to make our community a better place.

Last week I stood up in the Parliament to announce that I won’t be recontesting the

next election.

I’m now in my 18th year as Member for Parramatta and I can honestly say I’ve loved

every minute of it.

Parramatta is home to the most fantastic people and I have been blessed to meet

so many. It has been an honour to represent this diverse and endlessly fascinating

community since 2004.

But the time has come to spend more time with my family, especially my grandchildren.

My goal in this job has always been to make my community stronger. Because no one

is better equipped to solve the problems that we face and build a better future for

Parramatta than its community.

It has been a joy to watch so many of you see yourselves for the first time – to recognise

your value and unique contributions – and to grow.

I assure you that I will continue to work with you and represent you to the best of my

ability right up to the election day. My office will be there for you, just as it has been for

the past 18 years.

It’s not possible to thank all the amazing people and organisations that make Parramatta

the best community in Australia in a short statement – but I look forward to thanking

you all properly before this Parliament ends.

Thank you for choosing me to represent you. It really is the best job in the world.

Yours sincerely,

Julie Owens MP

Federal Member for Parrramatta

CITY OF PARRAMATTA

2021 NSW LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS

Saturday 4 December 2021

Thinking of nominating as a candidate for your local Council?

If you’re considering nominating as a candidate for the 2021 NSW Local Government elections, you should read this notice. It provides general

guidance about the process of nominating, and candidates’ obligations and responsibilities. Prospective candidates should seek their own

independent legal advice if they are unsure whether they are eligible to run for public office in a local council or how the law applies to their

specific circumstances.

Nominate as a Mayor or Councillor

To nominate as a Mayor or Councillor you must lodge a nomination

form, either by using the Electoral Commission’s online nomination

system or delivering it to the Returning Officer.

Nominating involves:

• Read the instructions on the nomination form carefully – all parts must

be completed.

• You may be nominated by either a registered political party, or by

two electors enrolled in the local government area or ward for which

you are being nominated. For example, if you are being nominated as

a candidate for a ward your nominators must be enrolled in that ward.

• Candidates must also complete a candidate information sheet and

statistical information sheet.

• A nomination deposit must be paid.

Grouping of Councillor candidates on the ballot paper

Two or more Councillor candidates may form a group on the ballot

paper, and where eligible, request a group voting square (box above

the line) be printed on the ballot paper for the group.

In addition to lodging the nomination form, these candidates must

also lodge a Request to form a group form.

Nomination deposit

All candidates must pay a nomination deposit of $125 each to the

NSW Electoral Commission.

Where candidates also lodge a Request to form a group, the deposit

is capped at $625 for a group of five candidates or more.

If using the online nominations system, the deposit must be paid by

either MasterCard or VISA.

If using paper nomination forms, the nomination deposit must be paid

by cash or bank or building society cheque.

Start your nomination now

The NSW Electoral Commission’s online nominations system is now

available at elections.nsw.gov.au You can start the process of

nominating online now.

Alternatively, paper nomination forms are available by calling the

Commission’s candidate helpdesk on 1300 022 011.

Candidates who previously prepared a nomination form

Following the postponement of the elections to Saturday 4 December

2021, it was determined that any nomination or grouping forms created

for the postponed Saturday 4 September 2021 elections will need to

be redone.

This decision was made to ensure information submitted in nomination

forms is accurate and current.

Lodge your nomination

Candidates may lodge their nominations and pay the deposit online.

However, if using paper nomination forms, you must lodge your

nomination and deposit with the Returning Officer for the council

area in which you intend to stand as a candidate. Returning Officer

office locations can be found at elections.nsw.gov.au/lge21

You are encouraged to start preparing your nomination form – and

grouping form if applicable – now.

The NSW Electoral Commission strongly encourages you to lodge your

nomination online. As the public health situation can change quickly

in any LGA, locations at which a nomination can be lodged in person

ADVERTISEMENT

may be closed in accordance with public health orders or if it becomes

necessary due to risks associated with COVID-19.

Nomination forms, grouping forms and nomination deposits must

be lodged between Monday 25 October and 12 noon, Wednesday

3 November 2021.

Late nominations will not be accepted.

Registration for electoral funding purposes

NSW has strict laws that regulate the election campaign finances of

political parties, candidates and groups at the election. These include

requirements to operate a campaign account, and to record and

disclose political donations and electoral expenditure. In addition,

there are caps on political donations and electoral expenditure.

Prior to being nominated, candidates and groups who wish to accept

political donations or pay for electoral expenditure must first apply to

the NSW Electoral Commission to be registered for electoral funding

purposes. Only once registered is a candidate or group allowed to

accept political donations and pay for electoral expenditure.

Candidates and groups can apply to be registered through the NSW

Electoral Commission’s new online registration and disclosure system,

Funding and Disclosure Online. Forms are also available on the

Commission’s website.

Applications for registration for electoral funding purposes close on

Wednesday 3 November 2021.

From Thursday 4 November 2021, nominated candidates and groups

that have not registered before being nominated are taken to be

registered and will take on significant legal obligations for recordkeeping

and making disclosures. Even already-registered candidates

and groups who decide not to nominate will have some ongoing

electoral funding law obligations.

To learn more go to elections.nsw.gov.au/funding-and-disclosure

Enquiries about being registered and the laws that apply to

political donations and electoral expenditure should be sent to

fdc@elections.nsw.gov.au

Candidate Handbook and webinars

A Candidate Handbook will be made available on the NSW Electoral

Commission’s website. Educational webinars which assist candidates

in navigating the process are also available.

Ballot paper draw

The Returning Officer will formally announce the candidates and

conduct a draw to determine the order of groups (where applicable)

and candidate names on the ballot paper at the office of the relevant

Returning Officer at 10am, Thursday 4 November 2021.

Observing the ballot paper draw will be subject to the capacity of the

Returning Officer’s office and any NSW Health public health orders in

effect at that time.

Unique design

gets green tick

NICOLA BARTON

A

unique and innovative addition

to Parramatta’s CBD is on the

horizon, with a winning design

for the new home of Parramatta Mission

selected.

‘The Gathering Place’, by architects

Durbach Block Jaggers, was chosen

following a design excellence competition

held by the Mission, in conjunction with

the City of Parramatta Council.

The new centre will no doubt be a

contrast to the city’s high-rise glass

towers, but complements the adjacent

Leigh Memorial Church.

Parramatta Mission Board and Church

Council member, Ian Gray, said The

Gathering Place reflects a commitment to

serving the Parramatta community.

“It will house Parramatta Mission’s staff,

be a centre for its social services, and a

place of meeting,” he said.

“Through the life and witness of its

congregations and through its delivery

of social services, Parramatta Mission

is seeking to redevelop this site to be a

source of inspiration in the life of Sydney’s

Central City.

“The Gathering Place will be accessed by

people from all walks of life.”

The design presents a soft silhouette,

reminiscent of a banksia pod, and will

include a rooftop chapel and garden.

It will also include the rebuilding of the

spire on Leigh Memorial Church.

Mr Gray said further detailed design

work may be required and it is intended to

proceed directly to prepare a Development

Application once the design is finalised.

The DA will be based on the winning

design, using the winning architect.

“The Uniting Church is working in partnership

with the City of Parramatta Council

in order to reach an agreed position

that recognises the loss of development

potential of the site,” he said.

“Construction of this iconic community

building can then commence as soon as

possible.”

Parramatta Lord Mayor Steven Issa

congratulated Parramatta Mission and

Durbach Block Jaggers on the building.

“The Gathering Place is a remarkable

design and will be a wonderful addition to

Parramatta’s Civic Link – a green, pedestrianised

pathway that will connect the

heart of the Parramatta CBD to the river,”

he said.

Parra News turns one!

Parramatta’s only weekly newspaper celebrates major milestone today

Parra News celebrates its first birthday

this week.

Published by Western Sydney

Publishing Group, the newspaper was

launched on Melbourne Cup Day last year

in an effort to return a weekly newspaper

to the Parramatta and Cumberland

regions.

Managing Editor Troy Dodds said it’s

been humbling to see the support the

publication has received.

“Our readers have embraced their new

local paper and our advertising partners

have shown enormous support,” Mr

Dodds said.

“We’re exceptionally proud to have given

Parramatta back a local paper – and we’re

looking forward to further establishing

Parra News as the go-to place for local

news both in print and digital.”

Mr Dodds said the paper continued to

print during the lockdown – an important

decision given how impacted our local

communities were, having been listed as

‘Areas of Concern’.

“We were determined to keep printing

during the lockdown because we knew

that for many, it was hard to get specific

local information – and we also know

there’s many in our community without

immediate access to news through the

Internet or Pay TV,” he said.

“So many of our advertisers stuck with

us during that period and we’ll be forever

grateful.

“Now things have opened up again, we’re

excited to resume the growth trajectory of

Parra News.”

Parra News is now the region’s only

weekly newspaper, and is released each

Tuesday.

“We know that people crave local news

and local stories. Without publications

like Parra News, so many of those stories

would never get told,” Mr Dodds said.

“We’re exceptionally proud of what we’ve

been able to achieve with Parra News

over the last year and we look forward to

continuing to deliver for the Parramatta

community.”

Parra News is published by Western

Pedalling for a cause

After her father was hit with a shocking diagnosis, Chyncia got on her bike

NICOLA BARTON

Wentworth Point resident Chyncia

Salerno has raised a whopping

$12,000 for the Prostate

Cancer Foundation of Australia (PFCA),

following a shock family diagnosis in

August.

Ms Salerno’s father, Frank, was unable

to complete his weekly 100km cycle due

to his treatment, giving her the idea to

continue the tradition and turn it into a

fundraiser.

The 22-year-old completed a challenge

of cycling 500km across four weeks and,

as a result, has raised $12,000, which will

go towards prostate cancer research and

support services.

“No one wants to hear that their hero

is in trouble but lucky for my dad, he had

detected it early, before it had the chance

to spread, so his chances of remission are

more promising,” Ms Salerno said.

“My dad rides 100km a week, so right

now while he can’t do it, I decided to do the

same distance and use it as an opportunity

to raise money for an important cause.

“I’m not an experienced rider, but I was

Frank and Chyncia Salerno.

determined to give it a go and help raise

funds to assist with research in the hope

of finding better prevention strategies and

treatment methods.

“Prostate cancer impacts one in six men,

so every dollar you donate will help these

men and their families through prostate

cancer research, nursing and support

provided by PCFA.”

Ms Salerno said it’s important to raise

awareness and normalise conversations

about prostate cancer between fathers,

partners and any other men in your life.

“My dad had been checking his PSA

levels for several years now, but we’ve realised

that not a lot of men know about the

signs and symptoms, or about the prostate

in general,” she said.

Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia

CEO, Professor Jeff Dunn commended Ms

Salerno for bringing an important cause to

light locally.

“Community support like this is invaluable

to our work and enables us to improve

outcomes for men impacted by prostate

cancer and their families,” Professor

Dunn said.

“Every 30 minutes one of our fathers or

sons will hear the news that he has prostate

cancer.

“Initiatives like this allow us to continue

our work ensuring that men have access

to life-saving clinical trials and Prostate

Cancer Specialist Nurses.”

Draft Councillors’ Expenses and

Facilities Policy

The City of Parramatta is seeking your input into recent

amendments to the Councillors’ Expenses and Facilities Policy.

These amendments have been proposed to provide clarity on

the payment of expenses and provision of facilities to the Lord

Mayor and Councillors of the City of Parramatta.

Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Lara Bury has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help publish her new book.

EMILY FESZCZUK

Western Sydney author Lara

Bury has just written her

second children’s book but

she needs the community’s help to

publish it.

Ms Bury is launching a Kickstarter to

raise funds to make her fun fact book

Aussie Animal Adventures a reality.

“Getting your book published isn’t

cheap but it’s not a donation, it’s more of

a pre-order with different reward tiers,”

Mr Bury said.

“I have a goal of $5,500 and it is all or

nothing, so if I don’t get fully funded

in that time then I don’t get any of the

money pledged.”

Working on the book since July, Ms

Bury said it will be a great little Australian

book to add to any child’s bookshelf.

“I wrote the book to show kids the

amazing animals we have and hopefully

spark a love of animals that may one day

lead to an interest or career in animal

conservation,” she said.

“It’s different in that I’m using real

photos of the animals that I took and my

young son Flynn is the main character

and he will be joined by a very cute illustrated

quokka named Quentin.”

Visit bit.ly/Aussieanimaladventures to

assist the campaign.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

The Sun/Uranus opposition suggests

a house move, family fiasco, uninvited

guests dropping in or some other kind of

domestic drama. And some Aquarians

could experience disruptions at work.

Whatever happens this week, strive to

get the balance right between your public

life and your private responsibilities.

The planets also push you to reinvent

a close relationship. But is that a good

idea? Just be careful you don’t get carried

away and throw the baby out with

the bathwater.

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

Are your aspirations for the future ambitious

enough? The current planetary

patterns favour ruminating over big-picture

ideas. And there’s no room for false

modesty or passive Piscean procrastination

as you enjoy talking, texting, posting,

promoting, socialising and circulating.

Uranus stimulates your thought

processes and encourages you to come

up with a cracking plan, and then pursue

it. An unwelcome surprise could unsettle

you though so hold tight and expect

the unexpected!

ARIES

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

Expect some highs and lows this week!

Venus promises improved relations with

a friend, client or colleague. But the Sun-

Uranus opposition highlights hiccups in

your financial management in the form

of a large bill, an unexpected expense

or a retrospective tax debt. Which reinforces

the importance of having a smart

savings plan and a well-stocked emergency

fund. So – going forward – strive

to be less impulsive and extravagant,

and more cautious and thrifty with your

money.

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

Bulls prefer to plod along in a methodical

fashion but this week, you could be

dogged by unexpected dramas and

disruptions! The Sun opposes Uranus

(in your sign) so daily life will be rather

unpredictable. If you prioritise and are

mentally flexible, then you’ll handle the

hurly-burly with less stress and strain.

Romantic relationships and platonic

partnerships are also in a state of flux.

You’ll find the more adaptable you are,

the better the final outcomes will be for

all.

GEMINI

MAY 22 TO JUNE 21

CANCER

JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

LEO

JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

VIRGO

AUGUST 24 TO SEPTEMBER 23

You could become anxious, as your

daily routine is disrupted in some way.

Or your enthusiasm for a work project

could overtake your ability to knuckle

down and get the job done. If you promise

more than you can deliver, then other

people will just end up disappointed.

Slow down and listen to the wisdom of

your inner voice. It offers an alternative

perspective and can point you in the direction

that’s right for you. The weekend

is wonderful for conversation and cooperation.

This week a child, teenager, friend or

lover could shock you by making a surprise

move. Or a group project could

suddenly veer off in an unexpected direction.

If you keep your adaptability

muscles well-flexed, then you’ll adjust

to the constantly changing landscape

accordingly. Peace planet Venus transits

into your relationship zone on Friday.

So stop sulking and stewing over a

perceived slight – it’s time to cooperate,

compromise and sympathise for a little

while.

Leos love to be the Top Cat but this

week you need to ask yourself “Am I

leading others or just bossing them

around?” If you power ahead without

considering other people, then you’ll

create unnecessary chaos and disruption.

Do your best to accommodate the

needs of those around you. Life will also

run more smoothly if you can incorporate

a spiritual ritual into your daily routine.

Something like yoga, tai chi, chanting,

meditation or creative visualisation

would be beneficial.

When it comes to the way you think,

blast out of a boring rut and jump into

an exciting new phase. Use your imagination

and think outside the box. Your

power planet Mercury moves through

your communication zone from Friday

until November 24. So stop avoiding issues

and start discussing what you really

want and need. You can’t expect others

to magically read your mind! For some

clever Virgos, a joint venture or creative

online project has the potential to fly in

the coming months.

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

Venus (your patron planet) shifts into

Capricorn, which can increase self-criticism

and dent confidence. With the Sun,

Mercury and Mars marching through

your self-esteem zone, it’s time to hold

your head high and trust your inner

judgement. Be inspired by actress and

birthday great, Sally Field (born on November

6, 1946), “It took me a long time

not to judge myself through someone

else’s eyes.” On the weekend, keep the

lines of communication and compassion

wide open.

This week the Sun, Mars and Mercury

are transiting through your sign.

And the Sun-Uranus opposition could

disrupt your usual routine and rattle

your Scorpio resilience. But it’s time to

bounce back, as you demonstrate (and

celebrate) your strengths – including

passion, determination and discretion.

Your motto for the moment is from

singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell (who

turns 78 on Sunday), “There are things to

confess that enrich the world, and things

that need not be said.”

Sagittarians can be feisty and unpredictable

souls. But don’t allow yourself

to be drawn into a heated exchange this

week (especially involving finances and/

or friends). It would be better to watch

the fireworks from the sidelines. With

the Sun, Mercury and Mars transiting

through your privacy zone, slow down

and chill out as you relax, rejuvenate and

contemplate. After some soulful reflection

and quality ‘me-time’, you’ll start to

see things from a refreshingly different

perspective.

It’s time for an unexpected pivot! Clever

Capricorns will examine all possibilities

this week, especially ones that come

from left field. With the Sun, Mars and

Mercury moving through your hopes

and wishes zone, it’s important to have

ambitious long-term goals that you’re

working towards. You’ll have to be patient

though, as you focus on bringing

your dreams down to earth via a practical

plan. Then – when everything is in

place – you’ll know the perfect time to

pounce.

Harris Park will light up the night,

with its annual Diwali festival

on Thursday, November 4.

Diwali, known as the festival of lights, is

comparable to Christmas for the Indian

community and is a time for families to

come together to share sweets and gifts.

Due to COVID uncertainties, large

events were unable to be organised for

this year’s celebrations, however businesses

along Little India’s famed dining

strip on Wigram Street will still decorate

their shop fronts.

President of the Little India Harris Park

Business Association, Sanjay Deshwal,

said it was too difficult to organise an

event for this year with the uncertain

COVID restrictions, but plans to come

back bigger and better come next year’s

celebrations.

“Due to COVID there will be no big

Diwali fair due to crowds and limitations,

however we are already planning

a Colours of Sub Continent Festival 2021

on November 21, showcasing dances,

music, singing and art and crafts,” he

said.

“This will be with COVID marshals and

will adhere to NSW Health guidelines.

“Hopefully with COVID out of the way

next year, we will have a grand Diwali fair

with lots of activities and attractions.”

Diwali is a Hindu-originated festival,

DIWALI 2021

Lite celebrations for Diwali

NICOLA BARTON

celebrated by the Indian community and

represents good over evil.

In 2017, the business hub in Harris Park

was closed to make way for 80,000 revellers

who joined together for the biggest

public celebration of Diwali in Australia.

Mr Deshwal said lockdown has been

hard for businesses in Harris Park but

has been heartened to see fantastic

support as restrictions are lifted.

“It is delightful to see more people

enjoying their time in Little India, with

long queues and large numbers of families

enjoying food, street food, sweets

and clothing,” he said.

Whilst the festival can’t go ahead, businesses

will still decorate their stores in

fairy lights, which will be displayed over

the next four weeks.

Mr Deshwal encouraged the community

to come and support the Little

India Harris Park businesses who have

been impacted significantly during the

lockdown.

YOU’LL REMEMBER

THEIR NAMES!

EMILY FESZCZUK

Cheyne Fynn and Justine Kacir

make up the independent production

company, Doors are

Closing Productions.

Born and raised in western

Sydney, the pair are making a name for

themselves, with their new TV show, ‘Remember

My Name’, that they hope to bring

to a screen near you.

Meeting at drama school and becoming

best friends, the duo have spent the last

few years writing, producing and starring

in their own six-part 70 minute comedy

series.

“The name of our production company,

Doors are Closing Productions, is inspired

by the countless hours spent on the train

between Penrith and drama school,”

Cheyne said.

“The series is filmed between Mulgoa to

Ryde and everything in between, and is

about one woman’s quest of becoming famous

by creating her own reality TV show,

but with a suburban backdrop.”

Justine’s character Christie is the somewhat

narcissistic but naïve lead and

Cheyne plays Justin, her trusty sidekick.

“Christie is 30…ish, has no job, no boyfriend,

no money or real prospects but she

does have ambition and a desperate desire

to be famous,” Justine said.

“Justin is the literal ‘boy next door’ who

conveniently has some basic film training

and equipment, who Christie recruits to

document every salacious moment of her

life in the hopes of becoming the next Kardashian.”

Similar in style to shows like ‘Kath and

Kim’ or ‘Upper Middle Bogan’, Cheyne said

it should resonate with a lot of people in

today’s day and age.

“While we do have a target audience of

ages 22 to 45 we think this is for anyone really,

or at least anyone who enjoys a laugh,”

he said.

“It has references to all your favorite or

guilty pleasure reality TV shows, so anyone

who loves those we hope might find a

home in ‘Remember My Name’.”

Currently doing the international web

and film festival circuit, the creators said

they hope that the series will be distributed

by a television network soon.

“We have started to get some really

positive reviews especially in markets we

didn’t expect being that the series is so

quintessentially Australian,” he said.

“It’s a project we’ve been working on for

the better part of a few years, so I’d be so

keen for it to reach the widest audience

possible and allow us to start working on

the next production, or better yet season

two!”

WELCOME HOME TO WEST HQ

parra news » Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Featured left to right: Sean Connolly (Steak & Co.), Richard Errington (West HQ CEO),

Stefano Manfredi (PizzAperta Manfredi)

After reopening its doors due to COVID-19 enforced

closures, Western Sydney’s leading landmark

destination for entertainment, fitness, lifestyle, and

accommodation, West HQ, has sprung back to life with

its Welcome Home message.

West HQ is home to 16 brands including New Town Thai

Street Food, PizzAperta Manfredi, Steak and Co. by

Sean Connolly, Gelatissimo, Eat St. Bar, CHU Restaurant

by China Doll and the Sydney Coliseum Theatre: a

2,000-seat multi-modal state-of-the-art theatre.

The Welcome Home message concentrates on the fact

that for all of us, the last 18 months were unlike any

we’ve experienced before. The upside now is as

Australians we are emerging with an appreciation of

friends, family, work colleagues, and what our country,

and local community has to offer. With international

borders closed, and state borders fluid, people are

starting to discover what must be experienced in our

own backyard.

The team at West HQ say the premise behind the

Welcome Home message is to make sure customers

know how much they are valued. When West HQ’s

doors reopened on 11 October, and based on learnings

from 2020, they were confident customers would

return, albeit with some (expected) social anxiety. Key

to reopening was providing a warm, familiar, safe, and

welcoming environment, of which West HQ has

delivered. The 8-hectare estate is very much alive and

humming. All 16 brands are open and ready for business,

including CHU Restaurant by China Doll, which in

November will start offering Yum Cha on Sunday’s, a

world-class line of up shows at the Sydney Coliseum

Theatre, the opportunity to win the Ultimate West HQ

experience valued at $2,500, as well as a slew of other

incredible offers across the destination including

Porkalicious, in partnership with Australian Pork, which

commences 1 November.

Since the start of the pandemic, the per capita

consumption of fresh pork in Australia has increased by

6.8%. Australian Pork (fresh and processed) is currently

the second most consumed protein across Australia in

general, and the ideal ‘ingredient’ to hero and celebrate

at West HQ throughout the month.

Porkalicious dishes have been designed with West

HQ’s recognised chefs including CHU by China Doll’s

Frank Shek & team, Sean Connolly (Steak & Co.), and

Stefano Manfredi (PizzAperta), who are all passionate

about their craft and are long-time lovers of pork.

Some of the mouth-watering menu items already slated

to appear on plates include BBQ pork ribs with tangy

Thai style pepper sauce, pork shank Massaman curry,

crispy pork cutlet with slow cooked mix bean ragout,

and pork belly and pickled onion pizza - all of which will

be included in West HQ’s returning $25 Meal Deal offers,

allowing customers an option to redeem the NSW Dine

& Discover vouchers which have now been extended to

July 2022.

The last 18 months have had an immense impact on all

of us; as humans, as friends, as partners, as parents, as

citizens. We all need a welcoming home more than ever.

Somewhere we can be ourselves, somewhere we can

rediscover and reconnect, and that really is what West

HQ is all about.

West HQ. One Destination. Countless Experiences.

Welcome home.

Have a Problem’, ‘How to Stay Married’

and ‘Territory Cops’.

The cast for the next season of ‘Celebrity

Apprentice’ has been announced.

2022 CELEBRITY APPRENTICE, NINE

Competing for Lord Alan Sugar’s affections

this time around is: Turia Pitt,

Will and Woody, Bronte Campbell, Jodi

Gordon, Benji Marshall, Gamble Breaux,

Beck Zemek, Vince Colosimo, Samantha

Jade, Darren McMullen, Jean Kittson, Jarrod

Scott, Carla from Bankstown, Ronnie

Caceres and Eloni Vunakece. The new

season of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ will air

on Channel Nine in 2022.

‘Chucky’, the TV adaptation of

the ‘Child’s Play’ horror franchise, has

premiered on streaming service 9Now.

Episodes will be released weekly.

A reboot of the 1980s / 1990s classic

coming of age comedy ‘The Wonder

Years’ is proceeding to a full season in the

US. Inspired by the 1988 original, the new

version of ‘The Wonder Years’ centres

around a black middle-class family in

Alabama in the turbulent 1960s. No word

yet of an Australian run for the show.

Sad news for fans of the iconic comedy

‘Friends’, with James Michael Tyler

passing away last week aged 59. The actor

famously played Gunther during the

show’s 10-year run. He had been battling

prostate cancer.

REVIEW

The Suicide Squad


2 hours, 12 minutes

parra news » Tuesday, November 2, 2021

If you’ve seen ‘Guardians of the

Galaxy’ and loved it, then I have little

doubt you’ll lap up James Gunn’s work

with ‘The Suicide Squad’.

Gunn has brought much of the comedy,

underdog style battles and violence that

made ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ so good

to his new work with DC, and appears to

be having a blast while doing it.

As we watch this collection of criminals

with super powers head off for their

mission, and experience all the violence

and drama that comes with it, the

comedic moments offer some wonderful

relief.

Those with knowledge of the behindthe-scenes

machinations of DC and

Marvel would know there’s all sorts of

expectations, demands and problems

that come with films from the respective

universes.

That can sometimes make these films

feel like box ticking exercises to appease

those with the big offices, but Gunn

largely manages to avoid this with ‘The

Suicide Squad’, though I dare say the

final 20 minutes feels like ‘we’ve been

here before’ as the predictable conclusion

is reached and style is played out.

Even if you can’t get into the groove of

the film, you’ll love Sylvester Stallone’s

King Shark – the laughs are cheap, but

they are laughs nonetheless.

And Margot Robbie? As usual, she

brings an extraordinary energy to

Harley Quinn, with the right mixture

of laughter, empathy, skill and innocent

naivety.

‘The Suicide Squad’ is fun. It’s far from

the best superhero movie around, and

it’s a little long at more than two hours,

but it’s an enjoyable return to the movies

after lockdown.

– Troy Dodds

Yes, that’s a wagon!

New chapter for Subaru WRX as sportswagon announced for 2022

NATHAN TAYLOR

The next generation Subaru WRX

not only ushers in a new era for the

legendary rally-bred performance

model, but it also paves the way for an

addition that is set to capture the hearts

and minds of Subaru enthusiasts.

Complementing the launch of the allnew

Subaru WRX sedan, Subaru Australia

has announced a highly anticipated WRX

Sportswagon will also arrive on Australian

shores in Q2, 2022.

A wolf in sheep’s clothing, the WRX

Sportswagon cleverly combines the

legendary turbocharged performance of

the sedan with a touch of sophistication

and an abundance of practicality.

“The WRX is a true rally-bred vehicle

that has earned an iconic status over the

decades, and the all-new WRX promises

to deliver a thrilling experience to drivers,”

General Manager Subaru Australia,

Blair Read said.

“The WRX Sportswagon offers Australians

an additional version of this performance

machine with enhanced practicality

for everyday use.

The all-new Subaru WRX sedan and WRX Sportswagon will arrive on Australian shores in Q2, 2022.

“The WRX Sportswagon will be a model

in its own right, with both the sedan and

Sportswagon featuring unique specification

tailored to their respective audiences.

“We’re confident the all-new WRX

and WRX Sportswagon will continue to

build upon the performance model’s rich

heritage as it ushers in a new era of style,

technology, razor sharp handling and

exhilaration.”

We’re back on the green

Golfers get back in the swing of things with tournaments set to resume

NATHAN TAYLOR

With New South Wales well over the 80

per cent fully vaccinated mark, Golf

NSW has announced the resumption

of its highly anticipated 2021 Tournament

Schedule.

Various golf tournaments will begin teeing off

from November 6 with the time-honoured NSW

Country Championships, followed by the NSW

Sand Greens Championships from November

21-22 (Men’s) and November 27-28 (Women’s).

The NSW Regional Open Series, a set of six

lucrative $50,000 tournaments and a key leadup

to the 2022 NSW Open, will also begin in

November along with the Murray Open on

November 24.

Golf NSW intends to play all events in accordance

with the NSW Public Health Orders at the

time of each particular event.

In addition to the tournaments already

mentioned, Golf NSW is working with clubs to

resume the popular Master Pennant competition,

which was in its final stages when the

latest lockdown began.

Golf NSW Chief Operating Officer, Graeme

Phillipson, was pleased to announce the return

of some sense of normality for golfers across the

state.

“For regional communities dealing with the

impact of COVID-19, by staging events like

these, we are bringing some normality back to

their day to day operations,” Mr Phillipson said.

“After being postponed due to COVID-19 in

June, the return of the six-event Regional Open

Series is an especially welcome addition to the

domestic golf scene for many of Australia’s best

golfers, both pro and amateur.”

Meanwhile, the Jack Newton Junior Golf

(JNJG) Foundation revised season will

commence next month, with the Brett Ogle

Junior Masters being held in Goulburn from

November 20-21.

December is set to be a busy month, with

the rescheduled NSW Junior Championships

(13-17 years) to be held at Lynwood Country

Club from December 6-9 and the JNJG State

Age Championships (12 years and under) to be

held at Penrith Golf Club from December 6-8.

There will also be a new addition to the JNJG

Tour program, with the introduction of the

Blue Mountains Junior Masters, to be played at

Wentworth Falls Country Club from December

11-12.

The return of golf tournaments comes as

many other community sports also resume,

or announce plans for their summer seasons,

as Sydney and NSW gradually comes out of

COVID restrictions.

Red and black to engulf stadium

NATHAN TAYLOR

The Western Sydney Wanderers

and Parramatta’s CommBank

Stadium have welcomed the

NSW Government’s decision to have

75 per cent, or 22,500, capacity for the

upcoming Sydney Derby on Saturday,

November 20.

The blockbuster fixture will open

Western Sydney’s A-League season, with

tickets now on sale to the general public.

The match will be part of a festival of

football at CommBank Stadium in the

month of November with the Matildas

also having matches in the run-up to the

start of the domestic competition.

Fans (aged 16+) attending the Sydney

Derby are required to be fully-vaccinated

against COVID-19 to be granted entry

into CommBank Stadium.

Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas

welcomed the change in restrictions.

“The Sydney Derby is the biggest

match in the calendar and we are

delighted to have the capacity to host our

members, cooperate partners and fans at

CommBank Stadium,” he said.

“We are counting down the days to get

back to our home and are excited to see a

sea of red and black in the stands.”

CommBank Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry

said the stadium team was thrilled to be

welcoming back the Wanderers faithful

for the first time since May.

“Bringing events back to NSW is an

important part of the State Government’s

Roadmap to Recovery and it will be good

to again have a sea of red and black inside

the stadium,” he said.

“The stadium team is looking forward

to getting back to doing what we do best:

hosting events and delivering an unparalleled

event experience for the fans and

the players while ensuring everyone

remains safe at all times.”

Meanwhile, the Wanderers have

confirmed the scholarship signing of

forward Jordan Swibel until the end of the

2021/22 season.

Swibel, who has been trialling with the

club since the start of pre-season, was

previously at Sydney FC’s set-up where he

played in their National Premier League

and first-team.

The 22-year-old recently featured in the

Wanderers’ first pre-season friendly this

season against Central Coast where he

got on the scoresheet in the 2-0 victory.
