NEVER

FORGET

NICOLA BARTON

At the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th

month, Australians will pause and reflect this

Thursday for Remembrance Day.

RSL NSW is encouraging all locals to ‘Remember to

Remember’ by pausing for one minute of silence to pay

respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice, those

who returned home injured and those who still serve

our country today.

Some local RSL Sub-Branches will host services to

commemorate the anniversary of the end of the first

World War.

The City of Parramatta RSL Sub-Branch will be

conducting the 2021 Remembrance Day Commemorative

Service for the Parramatta community from 10.50am

at Prince Alfred Square, Church Street Parramatta.

The Service will include The Last Post, Rouse and Ode,

as well as a Piper from the Parramatta RSL Caledonian

Pipe Band, who will play the Lament.

Members of the public are invited to participate in

a wreath laying ceremony, while a soloist sings the

national anthem.

The event will feature Monsignor John Boyle, a Chaplain

from the Parramatta RSL Sub-Branch, a bugler and

guest speaker.

Sub-Branch President Ron Grace said she is relieved to

be able to have a larger event, after COVID restrictions

impacted last year’s commemorative services.

“The City of Parramatta Council are helping us to

make sure the COVID-19 restrictions are adhered to,”

he said.

“We’re expecting about 100 people to turn up, it’s still

smaller than a regular year but larger than we could

have last year.”

Libs snub Parramatta

No Liberal candidates for Council election as Dwyer opts to run after all

NICOLA BARTON

Despite being Sydney’s second

city, the Liberal Party has chosen

not to run candidates in the City

of Parramatta for the upcoming Local

Government Election.

The development comes after the State

Executive voted against holding a Local

Government Conference in Parramatta,

removing members’ ability to pre-select

candidates, and instead putting the power

of endorsement in its own hands.

Despite this, the State Executive has

chosen not to endorse any sitting Liberal

Councillors, including Lord Mayor Steven

Issa, Bill Tyrrell, Martin Zaiter, and Benjamin

Barrak.

Liberal Councillors Bob Dwyer and

Andrew Jefferies had previously made

it known they would no longer put their

hand up for nominations, in protest of the

“undemocratic” process.

Cr Dwyer has now backflipped on his

plan to not put his hand up and will now

be running as an independent behind

Georgina Valjak as her number two on the

North Rocks ticket.

Bob Dwyer will run as an independent at the Council election.

Cr Issa, Cr Zaiter and Cr Barrak will

now all call it a day, with Cr Tyrrell to run

independent for Blacktown City Council.

Cr Dwyer said despite being barred from

the Liberal name, he and running mates

will make it known in their campaign

that they are “independents with Liberal

values”.

“There’s factional battles and issues that

go on from time to time and this one has

gone on for a bit too long and it seems it’s

impacted the ability for the party to come

up with an agreement of who should be a

candidate,” he said.

“I still want to give people in the North

Rocks Ward an opportunity to vote for

someone with the Liberal, conservative

values that have always been because

there’s no other opportunity for them to

vote if there’s no Liberal brand there.

“Georgina, our lead, Rob and I on the

ticket are all of the same ilk, we’re all about

local issues and I also think it’s great to

back more women on Council.”

Cr Dwyer said he is concerned a new

Council of independents will make

coming to agreements and decision

making difficult.

In Cumberland, Liberal Councillors

Michael Zaiter, Joseph Rahme, Ross Grove,

Ned Attie and Tom Zreika, have also been

dumped from running under the Liberal

name for the upcoming election.

The Liberals have also chosen to not field

candidates in Blacktown.

The Local Government Election will be

held on December 4.

Sounds like the west

Major music and technology event to be hosted in Parramatta next March

NICOLA BARTON

A

first-of-its-kind event celebrating

the best of music and technology

is coming to Parramatta in March

2022.

SOUND WEST, a five-day festival at the

newly named CommBank Stadium will

feature music performances and a technology

conference, including sessions,

workshops and mentoring from some of

Australia’s biggest tech brands and music

industry leaders.

The inaugural technology and music

festival has been created through a partnership

between the NSW Government

via Destination NSW, City of Parramatta

Council, Western Sydney Business

Connection and Western Sydney Business

Chamber.

Minister for Tourism and Western

Sydney Stuart Ayres, Parramatta MP Geoff

Lee and ARIA nominated Australian Hip

Hop artist, L-FRESH The LION were

among those in attendance at the official

announcement last Wednesday.

Mr Ayres said the landmark event will

be a pivotal moment after a difficult

economic period.

“One area of the economy that’s been

impacted more than most is live music

and performing arts,” he said.

“We also know our tourism and visitor

economy has been smashed to smithereens;

but now we are turning a corner.

“SOUND WEST is the first of its kind in

Australia and will bring together brilliant

minds, industry leaders and music enthusiasts

to share ideas, network and enjoy

the creativity of home-grown artists.”

Dr Lee said he was excited for Parramatta

to host the landmark event at Commbank

Stadium.

“Projects like this, that are actually able

to showcase the best talent in western

Sydney, are so important,” he said.

“This will allow us to help young people

to gain valuable knowledge and contribute

to the fantastic economy of creative arts.”

Celebrated Australian Paralympian

and speaker Dylan Alcott, together with

L-Fresh The LION, will speak at the

Australian-first festival.

Joining the partner and collaborator

line up are NEC Australia, The Edge

(ARN), SAE Creative Media Institute,

APRA AMCOS, Tik Tok, Universal, Warner

Music, Shopify and Live Nation, in addition

to host of media outlets.

The Festival will take place in Parramatta

from Wednesday, March 30 to Sunday,

April 3.

Expressions of interest are now open

for producers and promoters to hold live

music events during the festival.

Don’t ignore Council election

Why local election matters

While postal voting is expected to soar

this year, the vast majority of us will head

to our local school hall or community

centre on December 4 to vote in the Local

Government Election.

If I walked down Church Street tomorrow

and asked people if they knew the

election was on, I reckon the vast majority

would declare they had no idea.

Without the fanfare of a Federal or State

Election and the enormous media coverage

that goes with it, a Council election

can easily be forgotten about, like the garbage

on bin night.

But it is critical that we all take notice of

Local Government Elections.

You see the vast majority of the issues

that people within our communities bring

to our attention here at the paper, or chat

about amongst their family and friends,

are dealt with at local Council level.

And you’d probably be surprised at just

how effective your elected Councillors

can be in dealing with otherwise mundane

issues that may be impacting your

property, local park or school.

Councils are indeed mainly about

roads, rates and rubbish but that’s often a

throwaway line that doesn’t show enough

respect to the important role they play in

our communities.

That local swing set your toddler loves

at the park, that festival you attend each

year and those citizenship ceremonies

that bring a tear to the eye are all coordinated

at a local Council level.

More importantly, decisions around developments,

roads and heritage are also

often made in the chambers of Council.

It’s easy to complain and whinge when

something’s not being done to your liking

or, even worse, not being done at all.

But every four or so years you have the

great privilege to ensure your voice is

heard loud and clear.

Don’t just rock up on December 4, fill

out the voting card willy nilly and grab

your sausage sandwich and go on with

your day.

I encourage you to spend the next

month researching the candidates, reading

your local papers and news sources

and becoming more aware of the issues

that impact your local community and

what can be done about them.

Being apathetic about this election is

akin to saying you don’t care about how

areas like Parramatta and Cumberland

are run.

Dom gets it right with vax call

Premier Dominic Perrottet has unsurprisingly

copped some criticism over his

decision to extend the date unvaccinated

people will get their ‘freedoms’ from December

1 to December 15, or when the

state hits 95 per cent double dose.

But it was the right call, and the vast

majority of us now enjoy even more freedoms

as of yesterday.

Things like stadium capacity returning

to 100 per cent and density limits being

eased on restaurants and household visitors

can only happen sooner if we push

out the date that the unvaccinated will be

moving about freely in the community.

NSW is on the cusp of leading the world

in vaccination rates and it’s hoped that

the revised dates will offer some incentive

to roar towards that 95 per cent double

dose figure, which would be an astonishing

result.

To those who are left not able to attend

their local cafe or retail outlet for an extra

few weeks, bad luck. All choices have

consequences.

Come December 15, almost all of us,

barring those in exceptional circumstances,

would have had the opportunity

to have been double jabbed.

There’s no talking sense into the remaining

few per cent, but we can take

confidence from the majority.

Storm in a submarine

Not surprisingly, the spat between

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and

French President Emmanuel Macron

over submarines isn’t leading news bulletins

over in Paris.

The Australian media love a low grade

scandal, and they believe they’ve found it

in this Morrison v Macron debacle.

I have no doubt that the Federal Government

handled the submarine issue

poorly.

It gave President Macron the ability to

pump his chest when asked if he thought

Prime Minister Morrison had lied to him

over the contract cancellation.

In reality it should have been a 24 hour

storm, not a weeks-long political drama.

In the end we should care more about

whether or not the cancellation of the

contract was in Australia’s best interests,

not the subsequent spat between two

leaders that in the big scheme of things is

just part of the rough and tumble of world

politics.

Predictably Labor has pounced on this

issue, though largely is preaching to the

converted. Let’s move on and sink this

story before the press gallery embarrasses

itself further.

Cleo story just what we needed

It’s rare to turn on the news these days

and hear a legitimately positive story that

brings the entire nation together.

But Cleo Smith being found alive and

well in Western Australia last week after

being missing for several weeks was exactly

the kind of story we all need at the

moment.

It was a beautiful, inspiring ending to an

otherwise tragic tale.

Cleo’s family has had to deal with horrible

accusations in recent weeks, particularly

on social media.

All that matters little now that they have

their girl back. What a story!

Lending a helping hand

Turbans 4 Australia recognised for enormous contribution to those in need

NICOLA BARTON

It started as a small idea to promote

multiculturalism, but Turbans 4

Australia has now been named as one

of the top contributors to helping Aussies

in need.

NRMA Insurance recently published a

first-of-its-kind report, The Help Economy,

to identify and value acts of help across

Australia.

The report, created in conjunction with

PwC Australia, places a financial value on

The Help Economy, which is defined as

formal help, informal help and the value

of help received.

In 2020 there were 31 million acts of help

valued at $30 billion; but the true potential

could be more than $43.5 billion without

COVID restrictions.

Turbans 4 Australia was recognised as

one of the top contributors for their efforts

with bushfire victim assistance, drought

relief, COVID-19 support and a range

of other goods, food and clothing drive

initiatives, aimed at helping those doing

it tough.

Australian Sikh man Amar Singh

Turbans 4 Australia volunteers provide enormous help to people in need.

founded Turbans 4 Australia in 2015.

After experiencing some racial slurs due

to his turban and beard, Mr Singh wanted

Australians to see Sikh people for who

they really are, as people they can trust

in times of need, and so, he created the

organisation to promote multiculturalism

and compassion through their charitable

efforts.

“This was my way to get the community

together and give back and show people

that they don’t need to be afraid of someone

with a turban or a beard,” he told

Parra News.

“We feel very lucky to make a small

impact but what we learn and achieve

from this is immeasurable.

“Not everyone is racist, Australia is a

great country and we want to spread that

social harmony.”

Recently the group opened a large

warehouse in Clyde to help expand their

services.

Mr Singh said he is deeply proud of the

achievements of the organisation so far

and hopes to expand even further in the

future.

“We have so many dedicated volunteers

who put many hours of time into this each

week and we’re so thankful for the support

from the community for us to be able to

deliver so many projects back to back as

we aren’t government funded,” he said.

Turbans 4 Australia is currently establishing

a community kitchen and pantry

at its Clyde centre on 14 Martha Street.

To help them get this up and running,

donate at: bit.ly/3jSt5gA, or transfer to

BSB: 062233 ACC: 10373409.

The City of Parramatta will commemorate Remembrance Day

with services in Parramatta and Epping.

Each year on 11 November, Australians commemorate

the anniversary of the Armistice, which ended the

First World War (1914–18), with Remembrance Day.

At 11am, across the country, people observe one

minute’s silence in memory of those who have died

or suffered in wars and armed conflicts, and in

appreciation of their sacrifice.

This year, the City of Parramatta will commemorate

Remembrance Day with public memorials held by

Parramatta and Epping RSL sub-branches at Prince

Alfred Square and Boronia Park. Council encourages

the community to attend a memorial service

or, alternatively, tune in to the live-stream of the

Sydney service.

Diwali celebrations

If you’ve had the chance to wander along the

Parramatta River foreshore and through Centenary

Square recently, you may have noticed the

colourful and joyful lighting displays. These were

installed to celebrate Diwali, the ‘Festival of Lights’,

which took place last week.

The festival is one of our Indian community’s

biggest annual events and is observed by Hindus,

Sikhs, Jains and Newar Buddhists around the

world. We hope our Indian community members

had a very happy Diwali!

The lighting displays will remain up throughout the

festive season as we move into Christmas, New

Year’s Eve, Australia Day and Lunar New Year.

Those attending will be subject to COVID-19 public

health restrictions, including proof of vaccination

or a medical exemption and QR code check-in.

Save Haven for youth

New service will assist young people dealing with mental health issues

NICOLA BARTON

Young people experiencing suicidal

distress will have a safe space to

go, with a new drop-in centre at

Westmead Hospital’s Redbank House.

Known as Safe Haven, the newly-opened

space is staffed by peer workers, who have

lived experience of suicide, offering a

unique perspective to those who require

support.

The Redbank Safe Haven is one of 20

being trialled in NSW and designed to be

a non-clinical and welcoming after-hours

alternative to an emergency department.

The launch has a special focus on

supporting HSC students who have been

impacted significantly by COVID restrictions.

Towards Zero Suicides peer worker Mitch

Farrell is among the Safe Haven staff.

Mr Farrell experienced both anxiety

and depression in high school, which led

to suicidality and post-traumatic stress

disorder.

“I know for a fact that a service like Safe

Haven would have made a huge difference

for me as a young person,” he said.

“All of us here are coming from a place of

empathy, understanding and hope.

“We are here to listen and treat the

person, not just the illness.”

Professor Vlasios Brakoulias, executive

director of mental health at Western

Sydney Local Health District, said the

service would make a big difference to

young people during a time of need.

“October is usually the peak month for

youth mental health presentations and the

pandemic has been particularly challenging

for young people this year,” Professor

Brakoulias said.

“We are proud to be able to launch this

important service during Mental Health

Month to provide a genuine alternative to

the emergency department.”

Safe Haven is open 3.30pm-9.30pm

Sunday to Wednesday for anyone aged 18

and under.

It is located at Redbank House, Dragonfly

Drive, Westmead – behind Westmead

Hospital.

The service is free and no Medicare card

or appointment is required.

Outside of these times, young people

experiencing a personal crisis or distress

can seek help immediately by calling

Redbank House Safe Haven peer worker Mitchell Farrell.

000 (triple zero), Lifeline on 13 11 14, the

Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659

467, or presenting at a hospital emergency

department.

This youth-specific Safe Haven service

will be available at Redbank House until a

permanent Safe Haven opens for all ages

in early 2022.

Mays Hill: Man fled after driving

vehicle into shop while drunk

A man has been charged with highrange

drink-driving after a crash in

Mays Hill last week.

Just after 2.30am on Wednesday,

November 3, emergency services were

called to a business on the Great Western

Highway at Mays Hill, following reports

that a vehicle had crashed into a shop

front before being driven from the scene.

Officers attached to Cumberland Police

Area Command attended and observed

extensive damage to the shop.

Police patrolled the area and located an

abandoned white Toyota Hilux nearby at

Rees Street, with extensive damage to

the front of the car.

After assistance from the Dog unit,

the 37-year-old male driver presented

himself to police. He was subjected to

a roadside breath test and allegedly

returned a positive result.

The Mays Hill man was arrested

and taken to Granville Police Station

for secondary breath analysis, which

returned a reading of 0.171.

His licence was suspended, and he was

subsequently issued a Court Attendance

Notice (CAN) for ‘drive with high range

PCA’ and ‘negligent driving’.

He is due to appear at Parramatta Local

Court on December 7.

Westmead: Police continue to

tackle organised crime

Criminal Groups Squad detectives

have laid additional charges against

a man in Westmead as part of ongoing

proactive activities to prevent and

disrupt organised crime within the

community.

On Thursday, October 28, detectives

from the State Crime Command’s

Criminal Groups and Raptor Squads

conducted a Firearm Prohibition Order

(FPO) search at a unit at Westmead.

During the search, police located a

loaded handgun, a gel-blaster firearm,

ammunition, and about 22 grams of

white powder, believed to be cocaine.

A crime scene was established, and all

items were seized for forensic and ballistic

examination.

A 24-year-old man and 34-year-old

woman were arrested at the property

and taken to Granville Police Station.

The man was charged with two counts

each of ‘possess unauthorised pistol’,

‘not keep firearm safely’ and ‘possess

ammunition without holding licence/

permit/authority’.

He was refused bail and appeared at

POLICE SNAPSHOT

Compiled by Nicola Barton

Parramatta Local Court, where he was

granted conditional bail to re-appear at

a later date.

The woman was charged with ‘possess

ammunition without holding licence/

permit/authority’, ‘hinder discovery

evidence serious indictable offence’,

‘supply prohibited drug’, and ‘resist or

hinder police officer in the execution of

duty’.

She was granted bail to appear at

Parramatta Local Court at a later date.

Following further inquiries, detectives

arrested the 24-year-old man at

Granville Police Station about 9am on

Monday, November 1.

He was charged with an additional

three offences, including ‘possess loaded

firearm public place’, ‘armed with intent

commit indictable offence’, and ‘supply

prohibited drug more than indictable

and below commercial quantity’.

Police will allege in court that the man

threatened another man during an altercation

on Sunday, October 24 using the

firearm which was recovered by police

during the FPO search.

It’s further alleged that the cocaine,

which was seized during the search and

forensically examined, was deemed to

have been in his possession.

Granville: Man busted for role in

elaborate phone scam

A man has been charged after investigators

uncovered an alleged elaborate

phone scam, seizing almost $30,000.

In June 2021, detectives attached to

Cumberland Police Area Command

established Strike Force Crago to

investigate reports several people had

received a call from someone purporting

to be from a law enforcement agency or

financial institution, demanding money

or gift cards under the threat of violence

or arrest.

As part of inquiries, detectives identified

a post office box in Granville which

was allegedly being used to facilitate the

scam and arrested a 41-year-old man

attempting to access the mailbox on

Friday, October 29.

Investigators executed a search

warrant, seizing a shoe box containing

$25,000 cash.

A warrant was also executed at the

man’s home on Boundary Street, seizing

an additional $4,900 and documents

relevant to their investigation.

The man was taken to Parramatta

Police Station where he was charged

with two counts of ‘knowingly deal with

proceeds of crime’.

Community calls for

climate action

ADVERTISEMENT

Julie Owens Bulletin

Last Week Scott Morrison flew to Glasgow to announce a

plan to tackle climate change with no evidence to back it up.

After eight years in government, the Prime Minister waited until

just two days before he left for the UN Climate Change Conference

to release his plan, which is supposed to outline how Australia will

achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

The problem is, the plan doesn’t include any modelling to back up

the government’s claims. When Scott Morrison was asked about

the modelling, he said it was still being “written up” and would be

released “soon”.

A recent national survey found a clear majority of voters want

genuine action on climate change. Local Alison is one of them. She

made me this scarf showing how much temperatures have risen

over the past century to wear in Parliament for Common Grace’s

‘Knit for Climate Action’ campaign.

The scarf tells us what we already know - we need genuine action

on climate change. Not only for the environment, but because

it’s an opportunity to cut power prices, create jobs and grow

the economy. While other countries are seizing this opportunity,

Australia is being left behind.

Local Alison knitted his scarf, which shows how

much temperatures have risen in the past century,

to demand genuine action on climate change.

Bicycle safety in focus

Injuries have increased during the pandemic, sparking safety warning

NICOLA BARTON

Trauma surgeons from the Children’s

Hospital at Westmead are

raising the alarm over bicycle

safety, following a significant spike in

injuries over lockdown.

From June 26, when lockdown began,

through to October 14, injuries from bicycles

increased by 78 per cent compared to

the same period last year.

Over this period, 173 children and

adolescents were admitted to The Children’s

Hospital at Westmead and Sydney

Children’s Hospital, Randwick, compared

to just 97 during the same period in 2020.

The majority of injuries occurred in

older children and adolescents who were

mountain bike riding.

Trauma surgeons, Dr Susan Adams and

Dr Soundappan Soundappan, say the

increase in injuries in older children was

the most concerning and urged teens to

practice safe behaviours when riding.

“It is wonderful to see so many children

and young people spending time outdoors

and exercising,” Dr Adams said.

“Throughout lockdown, this has been

We’re being reminded to implement safety measures when riding bikes.

such an important way to manage our

mental health and we want to encourage

outdoor recreation with friends as much

as possible, but there are a few safety

messages we hope they will take on board

when out riding bikes.

“Older children and teenagers need to

make sure they are taking care in traffic,

riding to their skill level, and not being too

daring with jumps.

“Most importantly though, they need

to make sure they are wearing a helmet,

this simple measure can be the difference

between a great day out and one ending in

tragedy.”

Children not wearing helmets are more

at risk of serious head injury including

concussion, brain damage and other longterm

neurological problems.

Wearing a helmet reduces this risk by 60

to 90 per cent.

“We have seen patients in our emergency

departments whose helmets have been

split in two from the impact of their fall,”

Dr Soundappan said.

“It is a very stark reminder of just how

serious the damage could have been, had

that protective measure not been in place.”

Both trauma surgeons recommend

parents talk to the children to reiterate the

importance of bicycle safety and the need

to wear a helmet.

Their simple bike, scooter and skateboard

rules are to always wear a helmet

and protective clothing, ensure children

build up riding skills off the road and

ensure young children are supervised

while riding.

helmet safety, head online and visit bit.

Students plant the seed

Starting a conversation: New mental health campaign is driven by students

NICOLA BARTON

A

team of students from Catherine

McAuley Westmead High School

are starting important conversations

around mental health through a

new social media campaign.

Titled ‘Plant the Seed’, the seven-week

campaign was a winning entry in the 2020

Western Sydney University Youth Leadership

Masterclass and went live this month.

With a special focus on culturally and

linguistically diverse communities, it

aims to educate and engage young people

on the topic of mental health across social

media platforms including Facebook and

Instagram.

One of the six students involved, Victoria

Carr said each week it will explore a different

tip and promote additional resources.

“Each topic will be explained in depth,

small ways to integrate it into everyday

life will be presented and on Sunday each

week, there will be a reflection and prizes

on offer,” she said.

“Seven lucky participants will be gifted

prizes, each relating to one of the tips,

to treat themselves and continue their

mental growth beyond the social media

campaign.”

Ms Carr said the team recognised

people’s hesitancy to start conversations

regarding mental wellbeing, so ‘Plant the

Seed’ is about normalising mental health

as an act of personal growth and development.

Supported by Dr Nicole Bridges, an

expert in social media from Western

Sydney University, the students have been

planning the launch of this campaign for

several months, while continuing their

studies as Year 11 students.

Dr Bridges commended the students on

their idea and work ethic.

“I am in awe of the professionalism

and commitment of these students, as

they have developed this award-winning

concept, while learning from home in the

middle of a pandemic,” Dr Bridges said.

The ‘Plant the Seed’ campaign launched

on November 1 with tips to help their

Hitting the right notes

After months of Zoom rehearsals, Circular Keys Chorus is singing again

NICOLA BARTON

The Circular Keys Chorus (CKC) is

finding its tune as the group gets

together for the first time since the

easing of restrictions.

It was smiles all round for the members

of the award-winning, Baulkham Hillsbased

group, as they commenced their

first face-to-face rehearsal since the lockdown

began.

Despite the challenges of COVID-19,

the chorus has certainly not lost its voice,

instead using Zoom to rehearse, led by the

Chorus’ Master Director of 20 years, Vicki

Dwyer.

Member and North Rocks resident,

Alison Anderson said Ms Dwyer is a

fantastic educator and helped to exercise

not only her mind, but her voice, over the

difficult period.

“Our dedicated members have done

everything they can to join in the rehearsals

despite the adverse conditions,” she

said.

Quakers Hill resident, Jane Masters said

the Zoom sessions were a great way to stay

connected during restrictions.

“Even though the pandemic had a severe

impact on the group’s ability to sing

together in-person, our management and

music team were quick to re-imagine the

rehearsal plan and Wednesday nights

found the Chorus tuned in for an invigorating

rehearsal,” she said.

From the suggestion of member Inese

Kamenyitzsky, each rehearsal held a fun

theme, from Christmas in July to crazy

hair nights, as a way to keep everyone

laughing and entertained.

The group also spent time creating their

own A Capella cover videos to some hit

songs, which they then posted to their

website and social media pages.

CKC is a not-for-profit organisation that

belongs to Sweet Adelines Australia &

International.

Since establishment in 1995, CKC has

been entertaining audiences in Australia

and worldwide with their barbershopstyle

music and competing in various

regional and international contests,

taking home many awards.

With performances now able to resume,

CKC will be part of the annual ‘Choirs in

The City’ run by City Of Sydney in December

and will be showcasing a variety of

Christmas Carols.

They are performing on December 5 and

18 in Martin Place and on George Street on

Christmas Eve.

All performances are free to the public

and will run from 6-8pm.

For more information or to join, visit

www.circularkeys.org or contact info@

circularkeys.org.

Are you part of a community group

that is back up and running again now

that restrictions have eased? We’d love

to hear about it. Send an email to Nicola.

New pub creates a buzz

Backing a winner: The all-new Camellia Hotel is open for business

NICOLA BARTON

Punters can now enjoy a beer and

delicious meal at the newly opened

Camellia Hotel.

Situated on the former site of Sizzler and

Hooters at the corner of James Ruse Drive

and Hassall Street, The Camellia Hotel will

be run by former licensee at The Central

Hotel, Blacktown and The Fairfield Hotel,

Fairfield, Andrew Do.

Mr Do has worked for the owners, the

O’Hara family, for eight years and said

he is excited and proud that he has earnt

an opportunity for ownership in his first

hotel.

“The feedback so far has been amazing

and we thank all of our customers who

have supported us already,” Mr Do said.

“Everyone seems really excited to have

a new pub in the Rosehill area and they

have been impressed with the fit out of the

hotel.”

Mr Do said being located across the road

from Rosehill Racecourse, and diagonally

across the road from Camellia train

station, as well as the proposed Camellia

town centre redevelopment will bring

about great opportunities in the future.

“There are so many events at the racecourse

each year, and of course race days

will be particularly exciting,” he said.

“We are expecting a lot of racegoers

before and after the races.”

The O’Hara family own and operate

AHA award-winning hotels throughout

metropolitan Sydney and regional NSW.

Dan O’Hara said The Camellia Hotel

caters for all types of patrons.

“We aim to run great community hotels

and The Camellia will be no exception,”

he said.

“We have created different spaces for

different customers, whether it is a meal

in Camellia Bistro with the kids, a drink in

one of the booth seats in the lounge area, a

beer and a punt with friends in the state-ofthe-art

Sports Bar, or sitting outside in one

of the new cabanas. Andrew has always

gone above and beyond for his team and

his customers so we have no doubt he will

be great in the role of managing the hotel

and all that it has to offer.”

The Camellia Hotel is also looking to

sponsor local sporting teams or community

groups and encourages the community

to reach out for support.

BUSINESS

WITH GRAHAM FITZPATRICK

WESTERN SYDNEY BUSINESS CENTRE • 4721 5011

Why ‘framing the follow up’ is key

to your business’ sales success

In sales, marketing and advertising,

we love a good statistic. But here are

a few stats from IRC Sales Solutions

that I do not like the looks of.

Did you know that only two per cent of

sales made by fully trained sales professionals

are made on the first contact?

This is compared to 80 per cent of sales

made after being followed up at least

five to 12 times. So why do 44 per cent of

sales people give up after one attempt?

In fact, only eight per cent follow up

more than five times. Even if you are not

a sales professional this could be affecting

the sales success of your business.

There is an art to the follow up which is

easier than you might think. It is what I

like to call ‘framing the follow up’. This

involves stating clearly when, how and

why you will be following things up. It

is establishing what the next step is and

helps with building a relationship with

the prospect or potential new customer.

Framing the follow up sets up an acceptable

expectation of what happens next.

So here is how you do it.

Sum up the discussion and agree to the

next step along with when the prospect

will get back to you with an answer.

Clearly communicate that if you do not

hear back from them by the agreed day

and time that you will get in touch with

them on a set day and time.

Then finish it by welcoming them to

call you in the meantime if they have any

questions.

If you need to continue to follow them

up and to avoid sounding desperate, you

could try sending them updates on new

products or services. Send testimonials

or case studies to help them make the

decision process easier or send a special

offer to them to help get the sale over the

line.

By adding value, keeping in touch

and by being consistent in a controlled

way and framing the follow up, you are

getting closer and closer to the sale.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

Unpredictable Uranus (your power

planet) is stirring up some shenanigans

involving your domestic life, house

mates or family members. In order

to limit the chance of fiery words and

messy misunderstandings, do your best

to communicate clearly and carefully.

And remember – when it comes to relationships,

you’re not suited to ‘normal’

partnerships (whether of the romantic,

platonic or business variety). For quirky

Aquarians, ‘weird’ can be wild and wonderful.

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

This week the Sun-Neptune trine inspires

you to contemplate and create

your future. Whether you want to travel,

build a home, expand your family or

change jobs, begin with a dream and

then work hard to make it a robust reality.

Dreams are wasted if you don’t turn

them into productive projects! But a relationship

could experience problems

as the Saturn squares boost impatience

and heighten sensitivities. A healthy

dose of Piscean diplomacy will get you

through.

ARIES

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

This week stress levels will be high and

energy low, as motivation dips and frustration

soars. Taskmaster Saturn squares

your ruler Mars, which will certainly test

your limited patience but – with focus

and determination – you’ll navigate your

way around any temporary roadblocks.

Things improve from Friday onwards.

Hopefully you’ll learn some valuable

lessons – like slowing down, keeping

things in perspective, and calming yourself

within. Make sure you slow down

and smell the roses.

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

Stubborn, slow-moving Bulls prefer

things to proceed smoothly, with no

sudden surprises along the way. However,

with Uranus still transiting through

your sign, life continues to be a series

of ups and downs. Singer-songwritermusician

Neil Young (who was born on

November 12, 1945) observes, “As you go

through life, you’ve got to see the valleys

as well as the peaks.” This week the focus

is on relationships, conversation and cooperation.

Feel the love Taurus and keep

an eye out for opportunities.

GEMINI

MAY 22 TO JUNE 21

CANCER

JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

LEO

JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

VIRGO

AUGUST 24 TO SEPTEMBER 23

Your ruler Mercury hooks up with Mars

on Wednesday, which gives you the motivation

to put ideas into practice. And

it can also signal a fresh start involving

health, work habits or pets. Some vigorous

physical exercise will certainly help

you bounce through the week with extra

Gemini gusto and enthusiasm. But if you

don’t communicate clearly, then misunderstandings

are likely (especially on the

weekend). So think things through before

you speak.

The planets shine a bright spotlight on

partnerships of the romantic, platonic,

business and family variety. You are entering

a period of nurturing old relationships

and establishing new ones. So it’s a

wonderful time to focus on friendships,

shared hobbies, joint ventures and having

fun. As Scorpio birthday great Robert

Louis Stevenson observed, “A friend is a

gift you give yourself.” But tread carefully

when it comes to tricky financial matters.

Many lively Lions are in for a magical

week, as the Sun (your power planet)

forms a fabulous flowing aspect with

Neptune. So it’s time to be the flamboyant

and creative person you were born

to be. That doesn’t mean there won’t

be problems, challenges or frustrations

along the way. But it does mean that

your positive attitude and natural enthusiasm

will bolster your spirits and

enhance the lives of those around you.

Prepare to sparkle and shine!

This week there’s a magical connection

between the Sun and Neptune, so

there is much satisfaction to be gained

through contributing your considerable

talents to a worthy cause within your

neighbourhood community. You really

can make a difference if you think global

and act local! But relations with a family

member or work colleague could be

challenging (especially mid-week). So

make sure you pick your battles carefully

and choose your words wisely.

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

The flowing Sun-Neptune trine is terrific

for flights of imagination, ambitious

dreams, creative projects and all forms

of self-expression (especially art, music

and fashion). However – with Mars, Saturn

and Uranus disrupting your money

zone – don’t blow the budget by indulging

in an impulsive and extravagant

spending spree! This week you are faced

with a stark choice Libra … find clever

ways to boost cash flow or learn to live

within your means.

Have you been procrastinating about

an important issue? Or have you lacked

the self-belief to push a project forward?

It’s time to be bold, brave and proactive,

as the terrific trio of the Sun, Mercury

and mighty Mars march through your

sign (which only happens every two

years). So make the most of this awesome

opportunity Scorpio! Confidence

is in and complacency is out, as you go

after what you want with plenty of passion,

purpose and pizazz.

If you stir up grievances with an old

adversary this week, then you could

find you’ve bitten off more than you can

comfortably chew! The Sun trines Neptune

(on Friday and Saturday) which

favours balancing material and spiritual

needs. Plus, when it comes to a frustrating

problem, avoid quick fixes. You’ll

find a satisfactory solution if you act on

your hunches, do all the research that’s

required, and look for the facts that are

hidden beneath the surface.

Aim to be more proactive, especially

when it comes to networking with

friends and colleagues. And don’t let

annoying disruptions get you down. No

one wants to be around a grumpy Goat!

Instead of brooding when other people

don’t understand what you want, tell

them exactly what you need. And learn

to delegate, de-stress and de-compress.

Take some time off so you can enjoy doing

the things you love. No one (not even

a capable Capricorn) is indispensable.

EDUCATION CENTRE • 9637 2082

Why family involvement is at

the heart of all great childcare

A

great

childcare centre is like

a family: connecting people

young and old with encouragement,

support and relationship. Embedding

connections with children, their

carers and their community, childcare

centres can foster the emotional health

and social wellbeing of our future

generations.

Childcare designed for the local

community

Education isn’t one-size-fits all: your

child is unique – and their context is too.

Understanding each child’s social environment

is essential in supporting their

learning journey. Working closely within

community enables childcare services

to create curated programs that suit your

child’s needs.

Families come first

Family involvement is at the heart of

great childcare. When there are open,

inclusive and respectful relationships,

families can discover the kind of care

they want for their children. Seeing

parents and carers as partners is better

for children, as we all work together to

help them flourish and thrive.

Getting help from the community

As the saying goes, “It takes a village.”

Developing strong local ties can link

childcare centres with diverse comm

nity groups and organisations, meaning

they can access more resources. Uniting

together helps us become more than

the sum of our parts, offering a more

well-rounded experience than if we each

worked alone.

At Alfred Street Early Education Centre,

community involvement is at the heart

of our program. Call 9637 2082 to book

your tour.

MAGIC & MAYHEM

BACK AT RIVERSIDE

EMILY FESZCZUK

After being forced to stop in

June due to COVID, the curtain

will be raised once again

for a song and dance spectacular

in Parramatta.

‘Spiegelesque’ will return to Riverside

Theatre at the end of the month, transporting

audiences to a captivating and joyous

world of entertainment.

Described as showbusiness royalty,

Wayne Scott Kermond, who is a fourth

generation performer, is the star and creator

of the show that combines burlesque,

cabaret, circus tricks and comedy.

After a longer than usual intermission,

Wayne told Parra News that he is very eager

to get the show back on stage.

“We all knew we would come out the

other end of the lockdown but the matter

of when was a difficult thing… it was a long

interval so we are looking forward to doing

our second act if you will,” Wayne said.

“I am feeling a little nervous and rusty

but also pure excitement. We had great responses

from those who saw the show in

June and loved it, so it will be great to get

that reaction again.”

With direct links to vaudeville entertainment,

the variety show has a modern twist.

“Most cabaret shows are usually single

acts but we have a loose storyline where

I play a naughty and nice but mad emcee

called ‘Vayne’, who takes people on a journey

as if we are in a Spiegeltent,” Wayne

said.

“We create this lovely old world feeling of

a cabaret show but with a contemporary

flair that has lots of laughs and interactions

with the audience for two hours.”

With elements to fascinate a wide demographic,

Wayne said live performances are

needed more than ever.

“The wide demographic is because we

are a bit old school but very contemporary

and we don’t offend anyone. It is naughty

but lots of fun,” he said.

“Nothing beats a live experience connecting

with performers and ‘Spiegelesque’

creates a world to take people away

from what is happening in the world.”

‘Spiegelesque’ will be on at Riverside

Theatre in Parramatta from November 25

to December 5. Tickets are from $41. To

book or for more information, call 8839

3399 or visit www.riversideparramatta.

Parra News has two double passes to

give away for the show on Thursday, November

25 at 7.30pm. To win one, email

No Time To Die

Bergman Island

parra news » Tuesday, November 9, 2021

There’s nothing like a new James Bond

flick to get you heading to the movies.

In ‘No Time To Die’, Bond has left

active service and is enjoying a tranquil

life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived

when his old friend Felix Leiter from

the CIA turns up asking for help. The

mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist

turns out to be far more treacherous

than expected, leading Bond onto the

trail of a mysterious villain armed with

dangerous new technology.

Starring Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes

and Naomie Harris, this action adventure

is sure to be much-loved by Bond

fans. It opens on November 11.

Directed and written by Mia Hansen-

Løve and starring Mia Wasikowska,

Tim Roth, Vicky Krieps and Anders

Danielsen Lie, this beguiling drama

about life, love, and art is set to arrive

in Australian cinemas nationally early

next year.

A filmmaking couple, Chris (Krieps)

and Tony (Roth), retreat to the breathtaking

and mythical Fårö Island in

Sweden for the summer, a place where

the legendary director Ingmar Bergman

shot some of his most celebrated

films.

While hoping to find creative inspiration,

but spending most of their days

apart, memories of Chris’ first love are

evoked and the lines between reality

and fiction progressively begin to blur,

ultimately making her question her

current relationship.

‘Bergman Island’ opens on January 6,

2022.

Surprise twist for Lexus

with launch of guitar

NATHAN TAYLOR

Not your average auto story…

Fender Musical Instruments

Corporation’s Fender Custom

Shop has announced the launch of

a limited edition Fender Lexus LC

Stratocaster, the newest custom-built

piece from Principal Master Builder,

Ron Thorn.

Chosen for their passion for bold

design, intuitive technology, and

Takumi craftsmanship, Fender’s alliance

with Lexus brings to life the Fender

Lexus LC Stratocaster. Fender Custom

Shop will be releasing 100 team-built

Fender Lexus LC Stratocaster guitars

globally.

“Collaborating with Lexus to conceptualise,

design and build the Fender

Lexus LC Stratocaster has been an

incredible ride,” VP of Product Development,

Fender Custom Shop, Mike Lewis

said.

“The process our team took to design

this Strat has certainly been a labour of

love, as well as a source of inspiration

and excitement around the shop. Our

team is constantly building innovative

products and this launch is another

great representation of craftsmanship

and creativity at Fender.”

Fender and Lexus have teamed up.

The Stratocaster guitar includes an

omnidirectional Structural Blue finish,

a spectral range that produces light

metallic blue to deep midnight blue that

was originally inspired by the Morpho

butterfly. The paint on the Stratocaster

guitar is the same paint that was used on

the Lexus LC 500 Convertible Limited

Edition, of which fewer than 10 total

vehicles were produced for the Australian

market. Structural Blue paint brings

to life the rich curvature of the LC 500

body, and now the guitar body. The

paint does not contain any blue material

– it looks blue only because of the

interference of light. Layers of colourless

materials come together to generate the

ultimate colour, hence the name “structural”.

For more information on its various

features, visit www.lexus.com.au.

Cricket clubs bowled over by help

NATHAN TAYLOR

Two Parramatta District Cricket Association

clubs will share in $10,000 worth

of grant funding made available as part

of the HomeWorld Helpers Grant program.

An initiative of the Sydney Thunder and

HomeWorld, Harris Park Cricket Club will

receive a $1000 grant to purchase much-needed

equipment for volunteers including portable

shade tents, along with training equipment for

players.

Also securing $1000 in funding, Pendle Hill

Colts Cricket Club will put the money towards

new cricket gear and training equipment for

junior teams and the club’s Woolworths Cricket

Blast program.

The clubs are two of 10 across the Thunder

Nation to benefit from the program, which sets

out to develop the next generation of Sydney

Thunder stars in the shape of improved diversity

and inclusion opportunities, equipment,

uniforms, coaching and local promotion of the

game.

HomeWorld Group of Companies’ Director

of Marketing, Sponsorship and Community,

Trudi Busch, said HomeWorld was excited to

continue with their popular Helpers Grant

initiative.

Harris Park Cricket Club received a $1000 grant.

“It has been great to see the grants being used

by Thunder Nation Cricket Clubs over the past

few years,” she said.

“We think it is important to support cricketing

communities and hope that these new grants

will help local clubs develop their younger

players.

“Cricket should be accessible to anyone who

wants to give it a go.”

The HomeWorld Helpers Grant initiative has

Pendle Hill Colts Cricket Club was one of the grant recipients.

been supported by the Cricket NSW Foundation

who dollar matched HomeWorld’s contribution

providing further assistance to the great

work being undertaken by grassroots cricket

communities across NSW.

Since 1975 Pancakes On The Rocks has been a Sydney favourite with restaurants at

The Rocks, Northmead, Darling Harbour, Beverly Hills & Darling Square.

With something for everyone from Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & Dessert we have a wide

range of meals including Ribs, Steak, Pizzas, Salad, Crepes & of course our Pancakes.
