tackle scammers.

TO TURN

LOSING THE FIGHT AGAINST SCAMMERS

NICOLA BARTON

A

group of 30 local men are the latest

victims in an elaborate cyber scam,

collectively losing over $100,000.

Refugees and migrants who make up some

of the local Tamil community were recently

sucked into the ‘Hope Business’ scam, which

invited them to invest money via an app that

was promoted on Facebook in the Tamil

language.

At first, those who invested in the app were

paid some small dividends to gain their

trust, encouraging them to tell their friends

and invest more.

One Pendle Hill man invested $17,000 and

others borrowed money to invest as much as

they could, but then the app went silent.

Unable to navigate systems due to language

barriers, the men reached out to Durga

Owen, a member of the Tamil community

and community worker.

“It looked completely legit, it had an ABN

and everything,” she said.

“We went to the police who took weeks to

start interviewing people, a lot of the banks

had no procedures in place and the ACCC

also was no help and was only for reporting

purposes.

“These are low wage earning men and the

man who invested the most has been incredibly

depressed to the point of wanting to end

his life. There needs to be a phone number,

someone to actually speak to so interpreters

can be offered and victims can be assisted.”

According to the ACCC, scammers stole

$34 million from Australia’s CALD communities

in 2020 alone.

Federal Parramatta MP Julie Owens is

joining a movement by the Labor Party to

lobby the Morrison Government to stop the

epidemic of scams hammering Australians’

phones, emails and social media accounts.

Leader of the Opposition Anthony

Albanese has committed to establishing

a National Anti-Scam Centre, doubling

funding for victim support groups, using

National Cabinet to streamline recovery of

Government ID forms, tasking a Minister

with direct portfolio responsibility for fighting

scams online and reviewing criminal

penalties for online fraud.

Last year the Federal Government

announced Australia’s Cyber Security Strategy

2020, which will invest $1.67 billion over

10 years and focus on mitigation, research,

intelligence and awareness campaigns.

Eric Tweedale stadium launch

Eric Tweedale Stadium officially opened

Cumberland City

consolidates new

planning controls

The Cumberland Local Environmental Plan

(LEP) 2021 and Development Control Plan

(DCP) 2021 came into effect on 5 November.

Our new LEP and DCP provide one set of

controls that replaces the former Auburn,

Holroyd and Parramatta LEPs and DCPs

that applied to the Cumberland City Local

Government Area.

The Cumberland LEP guides land use

planning decisions and provides the legislative

framework for land use and development in

our city.

The Cumberland DCP provides guidance for

the design and operation of development

within Cumberland City to achieve the aims

and objectives of the Cumberland LEP.

For more information, visit:

www.cumberland.nsw.gov.au/new-planningcontrols

Council hosted the official opening for the stateof-the-art

Eric Tweedale Stadium last Friday. The

$11.3 million stadium has been a benchmark for

sustainable construction with a key focus on an

intricately detailed timber roof structure which

was lit up for an evening of sport, food, and

community.

“We’re delighted to make Granville home to

community sport and provide our residents

and visitors with a revitalised facility ,” Mayor of

Cumberland City Council, Steve Christou said.

Among those who attended the opening, was

the oldest living Wallaby player Eric Tweedale

who celebrated his hundredth birthday at the

Merrylands RSL earlier this year.

In March last year Cumberland City Council

unanimously voted to name the Granville Park

Community Sports Pavilion ‘The Eric Tweedale

Stadium’.

Mr Tweedale’s contribution to the game has

been instrumental in the development of the

local team, Two Blues.

General Manager of the Two Blues, Christian

Burden, said the new stadium presents a real

opportunity to inspire the new generation

of rugby players, who will be using the

sportsground as their home ground.

“The Eric Tweedale Stadium has provided the

Two Blues a wonderful opportunity to embark on

the next chapter of their long and proud history”.

The new stadium is set to generate new levels

of interest and excitement from the local

community, and offer the local area a range of

recreational and community facilities including

the premium sportsground and stadium, function

room and viewing platform, gym and wellness

programs with bootcamp, zumba and yoga.

Capital works in Cumberland City

Upgraded fields, new public spaces, and a

premier stadium are just some of the exciting

projects Cumberland City is proud to bring to

the community.

Merrylands CBD

The $11 million Merrylands CBD revitalisation

to provide a public domain in the heart of

Merrylands is underway. Thanks to reduced DA

processing times and funding from the Public

Spaces Legacy Program, we’re working to create

a stunning public gathering space as part of

the Merrylands Civic Square Project. We’ve

also completed an $11.4 million three-phase

drainage project in the Neil Street Precinct to

increase stormwater capacity and maximise the

revitalisation of the area.

Granville Park

The $13.4 million upgrade to Granville Park has

seen the opening of the Eric Tweedale Stadium

which meets the national standard for length and

turf quality. It can host rugby games for a seated

crowd of 750 and provide a la carte dining in its

150-seat function room.

We’ve also welcomed $1 million courtesy of

the Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund, to install

a new irrigation system and upgrade existing

floodlighting at Granville Park’s Claremont fields

3, 4 and 5.

The aim is to see increased participation in sport

and meet the needs of the local community.

Push for tea room revival

Calls for popular Red Cross tea room to be resurrected at the Phive in 2022

NICOLA BARTON

It was once the oldest standing

arm of the Australian Red

Cross, but the Parramatta

branch has now been homeless

for six years.

For 81 years the Parramatta

branch served the greater

community of Parramatta, 75

years of which the branch’s

principal activity was to provide a

‘haven’ for locals, at its staffed tea

room.

The tea room was once a place

where there was always a hot pot

of tea, sandwiches, friendly faces

and support but it was brought

to an end in 2015 when the then

Parramatta City Council demolished

the old Council chambers

building in which it operated

from.

Since then, President of the

branch, John Glass, fought for the

group to be relocated, yet to this

day remains unsuccessful.

“The tea room was the auspices

of the Australian Red Cross and

was our branch’s primary activity,”

Mr Glass said.

“The tea room commenced in

Macquarie Street in 1940 and in

1956 it moved into the old Council

chambers.

“We had hoped to continue the

branch’s activities in another

suitable location, courtesy of

Parramatta Council in replacement

of the demolished venue,

but much time has been wasted

now.

“At the time it was the oldest

branch in Australia.”

The branch have since occasionally

met at cafes and the

Parramatta RSL Club, however

had to be deemed ‘in recess’ by

the Red Cross due to its issues

securing a location.

Mr Glass is now calling on

the City of Parramatta Council

to reserve a space in the new

chambers, currently under

construction, to see the tea room

resurrected.

The $130 million 5 Parramatta

Square development will be the

City of Parramatta’s new headquarters.

Once completed, it will

house Council’s new chambers as

well as a library, community hall

and spaces.

The building is expected to be

completed by April 2022.

“Council values and supports

the many services provided to the

community by the Red Cross,” a

City of Parramatta spokesperson

said.

Parramatta Hive (Phive),

the new cultural, civic and

community building located at

5 Parramatta Square, has been

designed to offer many flexible

community spaces that are

accessible for all members of the

public and, as a result, will not be

available for exclusive use by any

one organisation.

“City of Parramatta Council’s 19

community facilities have been,

and will continue to be, available

for use by the Red Cross, along

with other community groups, to

continue their valuable work.”

Parramatta Red Cross Branch President, John Glass.

Yes, we’re back to the rat race

We’re going back to the office

A friend of mine recently quit their job

upon hearing they’d need to return to

the office in 2022. They’ll find something

more local, not willing to battle the M4

every day.

Another had moved north at the start of

the pandemic, and now faces the headache

of moving back as the whole ‘work

from home forever’ dream starts to fade.

And it was always going to fade.

For almost two years now I’ve heard

people claim that the COVID-19

pandemic would change our working

lives forever. Working from home would

become the norm, with only the occasional

trip into the office.

The days of smelly food being left in

the fridge, the toilet paper roll not being

replaced and the printer seemingly never

working were gone, they said.

Of course this dream never matched the

reality, and by the time 2022 rolls around

most of us who work in offices will be

back to the same old desk they occupied

pre-pandemic.

There will be exceptions, of course.

But I’d suggest even those companies

holding out, claiming they’ve discovered

a new world in allowing their employees

to work from home, will eventually flick

the switch back to the way it was.

The cultures of companies big and

small will start to be impacted significantly

with their workforce split, especially

when new employees join and they

never really understand the groove of the

business.

In-person meetings or attendance at

networking events or conferences will

be needed, meaning the time saved

commuting to work will instead be spent

during the working day getting to such

events from all sorts of locations, if of

course you’ve based yourself somewhere

even remotely close to your workplace’s

base.

“It’ll be back to those

traffic jams and train

delays we were so used

to”

And then there’s the whole matter of

trust and performance management.

We’re a country that loves a sickie, tends

to hate the boss and bag the company at

Friday night drinks, but of course, that’s

no reason not to trust you’ll work just as

hard at your own home as you would in

the monitored office.

Working from home isn’t a problem

during the height of a pandemic or a lockdown

because temptations are less and

you’re desperately trying to keep your job

in such uncertain circumstances.

But as normality returns, I just can’t see

the work from home movement continuing,

or taking off further.

It’ll largely die a quickish death, and it’ll

be back to those traffic jams and train

delays we were so used to.

Local should always be the priority

It’s interesting to see radio station Triple

M taking a more localised approach to its

programming next year.

Part of that will see Penrith legend Mark

Geyer back on their airwaves at breakfast.

Triple M’s decision follows a trend

reversal of late that is taking away a lot of

national networking in radio.

Nine Radio recently reinstated a lot

of local programming into Brisbane on

4BC, after a couple of years of networking

most programs from 2GB in Sydney.

There’s plenty of other examples over

the years too, so often in radio news

departments.

In radio, local is key and always has

been, so the attempted national approach

by stations has only ever been about

money and never about audience.

Almost always, the decision has to get

reversed. It’s a weird industry where

learning from past mistakes is rare.

But that’s the media for you.

News Corp and Fairfax will likely

blame other factors but the truth is their

community newspapers started becoming

less relevant when they closed local

offices and generated content from hubs,

not in the communities they represent.

Television tends to understand the

concept better. You’d never see the

6pm news become a national bulletin,

because our cities are different and news

relevance differs significantly.

It may be more expensive, but the more

local media can get, the better.

Too often the big players have ignored

this rather obvious fact, and centralised

anyway, ultimately to their detriment

The answer to survival and growth was

always staring them in the face.

Police work shining through

As we edge closer to finally finding

answers to what happened to William

Tyrell, we must never forget the tenacity

and investment of our police officers in

such cases.

Just last week police also cracked a

30-year-old case involving the murder

of a two-year-old girl, arresting a woman

and man over the 1987 incident.

These cases never leave the detectives

who work on them. They deserve our

admiration and praise.

LORD

MAYOR’S

MESSAGE

CR STEVEN

ISSA

Celebrating our frontline workers

Last week I was thrilled to host the Lord Mayor’s

Community Christmas Celebration in honour of

our hardworking frontline workers. This event was

a great opportunity to recognise those who have

served our community throughout the pandemic

and highlight the important and critical services

they provide.

I met with representatives from NSW Health, NSW

Police Force, NSW Ambulance, Fire & Rescue

NSW and SES, 1st/15th Royal NSW Lancers, and

a large number of community organisations.

The sacrifices they made to look after us during

such a tough period is inspirational and, on

behalf of the City of Parramatta, I thank our

frontline workers for all they have done, and

continue to do, for our community.

On the night, the Lady Mayoress and I were

also pleased to announce Council’s donation

of $10,000 to Ward Angels. This not-for-profit

organisation supports sick children and their

families by donating goods that provide comfort,

entertainment, and distraction.

Working closely with hospitals, hospital staff

and families, Ward Angels’ volunteers also run

feel-good events for families such as Christmas

lunches, support families with sick children who

may be struggling financially, and aid hospital

programs by providing equipment and supplies.

POLICE SNAPSHOT

Compiled by Nicola Barton

Wentworth Point: Vision released

after brawl erupts at party

Police are appealing for public assistance

following a break and enter in

Wentworth Point recently.

About 4.20am on Sunday, November

14, emergency services were called to

an address at The Crescent, Wentworth

Point, following reports of a brawl.

On arrival, officers attached to Auburn

and Burwood Police Area Commands

were told a group of about 25 people

were having a party, before a group of

approximately 16 armed males and

females entered the unit wearing face

coverings.

While inside, the offenders allegedly

damaged property and one used a glass

bottle to strike an 18-year-old woman

across the head.

A crime scene was established, and

Long investigation results in drug

arrests, seizure of illegal items

Police have charged a man with firearm,

drug and arson offences, following

a proactive investigation into the supply

of prohibited drugs around Sydney

Olympic Park.

In September, detectives from Auburn

Police Area Command commenced

investigations which formed part of

Operation Trident, targeting mid-level

organised crime groups within the

South West Metropolitan Region.

Following inquiries, about 12.30pm on

Monday, November 15, police executed

a search warrant at a unit on Anslem

Street, Strathfield South.

During the search, police allegedly

located several items including two firearms,

ammunition, drugs, and almost

$20,000 cash.

A 37-year-old man was arrested at

the scene and taken to Auburn Police

Station.

LOCAL NEWS

About 9.35pm on the same day, police

executed a second search warrant at a

unit on Figtree Drive, Sydney Olympic

Park, where they allegedly located

almost $1,500 cash.

All items were seized for forensic

examination.

The man was charged with two counts

of ‘supply prohibited drug’, two counts of

‘possess unregistered firearm’, ‘possess

prohibited drug’, ‘deal with proceeds of

crime’, ‘possess ammunition without

holding a licence/permit’, and two

counts of ‘not keep firearm safely’.

He was also charged with ‘damage to

property’ over his alleged involvement

in a suspicious car fire at Chipping

Norton on Sunday, April 4.

He was refused bail and appeared

at Burwood Local Court on Tuesday,

November 16.

Toongabbie: Man arrested over

2020 murder as probe continues

A man has been charged with murder

following an investigation by Homicide

Squad detectives into the murder of

another man in Toongabbie last year.

Just before 10.30pm on Sunday,

November 15 2020, emergency services

were called to Budgeree Road, Toongabbie,

and found a man on the footpath

suffering multiple stab wounds.

Despite the efforts of emergency

services and members of the public, the

man died at the scene.

He has since been formally identified

as 49-year-old Warwick Hunter.

Officers from Parramatta Police Area

Command established a crime scene and

commenced inquiries into the incident

But it’s not just individuals who are at

risk.

Greater Cumberland Chamber of

Commerce President Immanuel Selvaraj

said more needs to be done to educate

business owners on how to protect

themselves.

“In today’s world small and medium

size owners who are operating in a

non-IT environment are ignorant to

what’s happening in the IT world and it

makes them vulnerable to cyber security

breaches,” he said.

“62 per cent of small and medium

businesses have been victims of a data

breach and just one attack can take away

years of work.”

The Chamber is hosting a Digital

Education series to better equip small

and medium businesses to protect and

leverage themselves.

This month’s meeting featured a talk

from cyber security firm, Cyber CX.

CUMBERLAND COUNCIL ELECTIONS - SOUTH GRANVILLE WARD

Just six candidates in

Labor mounts campaign on traffic and environmental issues, while Our

NICOLA BARTON

In less than two weeks locals will

finally hit the polls for the Local

Government Election, after it was

postponed in September 2020 and again

in September 2021.

After a difficult two years, this Local

Government Election will be critical in

shaping the way both Parramatta and

Cumberland Cities move on from COVID-

19’s struggles.

This week Parra News will break down

each of the Cumberland City Council

Wards, the candidates who will throw

their hat in the ring and the issues and

policies they are taking to the election on

December 4.

Cumberland City Council was formed

in 2016, following the merger of Auburn,

Holroyd and part of Parramatta Councils.

The Council covers a population of over

242,674 and is one of the most culturally

diverse communities in Australia.

It is divided into five wards, each of

which has three Councillors.

Half of those running for Cumberland

City Council’s South Granville Ward will

secure a winning spot, with only six candidates

in the race.

Veteran Councillor Paul Garrard will

recontest his sitting position on the South

Granville Ward, representing the Our

Local Community Party (OLC), in which

he founded in 2013.

Cr Garrard was formerly the Lord Mayor

of Parramatta City Council six times.

Number two and three on the South

Granville Ward ticket for OLC are Margaret

Allen and Jeffrey Sun.

Cr Garrard said he is hopeful OLC can

increase its representation on next year’s

Council and said he will be championing

their message of being a voice for the

community.

“The new frontier in Local Government

is neighbourhood programs and development

and we focus on that; we try to stay

away from the big ticket issues,” he said.

Issues he is particularly interested

in include overdevelopment and road

congestion.

“One of the really big issues here to me

is the fact that people are living on top of

each other due to the population expectations

being placed on our communities,”

Cr Garrard said.

CUMBERLAND COUNCIL ELECTIONS - SOUTH GRANVILLE WARD

South Granville race

Local Community focuses on overdevelopment and transport problems

“There’s a lot of high rise multi-unit

development, boarding houses and

granny flats and I want to come to terms

with the population density through our

area and the impact it has on our schools,

medical facilities and our policing of these

areas.

“Another issue is the trains. The Cumberland

area, particularly my area, has a lot of

railway stations and unfortunately trains

don’t stop here; you have to change trains

two or three times to get to the city and

the fast trains don’t run anymore from

Granville, Clyde, Berala and Regents Park.

“The State Government needs to better

work with Local Government on policies...

the community feels neglected.”

Sitting Labor South Ward Councillor

Glenn Elmore will also recontest, joined

by running mates Mohamad Hussein and

Melissa Seymour.

Cr Elmore was previously Deputy Mayor

in 2018-2019.

“The biggest issue we have around here

that needs to be addressed is traffic,” Cr

Elmore said.

“We also need to clean up Duck River, for

years it has been unloved and has a lot of

rubbish.

“I would also like to develop a cycleway

plan.

“My running mate Mohamad is a nurse

and is passionate about open space and

parklands and Melissa is a teacher and

she’s interested in local infrastructure and

ensuring people are properly consulted.”

Suburbs in the South Granville Ward

including Merrylands, Auburn and Guildford

were among the hardest hit during

the recent COVID-19 lockdown and the

support locals felt they received from

their community representatives over this

difficult time will undoubtedly influence

the way they vote.

In the 2017 Cumberland City Council

Election, the OLC party held 23.9 per cent

of primary votes in the South Granville

Ward, taken out by Labor who held 28 per

cent. 22.8 per cent was held by the Liberal

Party.

With the Liberal Party pulling out of

Cumberland in the upcoming Election,

OLC will likely increase its representation

across all wards.

Incumbent Liberal South Ward Councillor

Tom Zreika will not recontest as an

independent.

The election will be held on December 4.

CUMBERLAND COUNCIL ELECTIONS - GRANVILLE WARD

Major projects are hot

Busy ballot paper as 12 candidates vie for three spots in Granville ward,

NICOLA BARTON

12 candidates will battle it out for a

spot on Granville Ward – the centre

of Cumberland, with some of the

biggest projects in town.

Major projects and developments that

are set to be hot topics moving into the

election are the $11 million Merrylands

Civic Square, Coronation Property’s

346-apartment Mason and Main complex,

and the Granville Town Centre Masterplan.

Cumberland City Council’s Mayor since

2019, Steve Christou will recontest his

seat, as the lead candidate on the Our

Local Community (OLC) ticket.

Cr Christou resigned from Labor and

joined OLC shortly after he was elected

Mayor.

Number two on the OLC ticket is Samantha

Sleiman, who owns The Butcher’s

Block in Granville, and number three is

Karen Garrard, wife of OLC founder and

Councillor, Paul Garrard.

Cr Christou said OLC will be leading a

grassroots campaign, focussing on the

basics.

“Under my time as Mayor I have delivered

$85 million of upgrades to the Granville

Ward,” he said.

“I want to ensure that Cumberland

continues to improve, to deliver services

and to not raise rates.

“Our community was the most affected

during the COVID lockdown with curfews

and restrictions and it was brought on to

us by a Liberal Government with support

of Labor; OLC was there when people

couldn’t afford to put food on the table to

feed their children and were defending

them.”

Incumbent Labor Councillor Ola Hamed

will recontest, joined by Frank Webb and

Joshika Naidu.

“I understand Granville and its challenges,

namely a lack of parking in the

Granville Town Centre, primarily due to

overdevelopment,” she said.

“I believe public assets should remain in

public hands and have fought very hard

against Council’s privatisation of childcare

services.

“I will advocate for multicultural events

to be open to all residents including

Christmas, Easter, Ramadan, Lunar New

Year and Diwali.”

Labor candidate Frank Webb, incumbent Councillor Ola Hamed and candidate

Joshika Naidu.

Six independents will also throw their

hat in the ring, however three of those,

including sitting Councillor Joseph

Rahme, Natalie Issa and Jamie Sleiman

are members of the Liberal Party.

Cr Rahme said his policies will still carry

a Liberal ethos and believes COVID-19

recovery is the most important issue going

into this election.

“While I believe my initial response of

spearheading 1200 hampers to families

in need was effective, I now believe the

biggest ticket item is dealing with the

medium and long-term effects of COVID

on our community,” he said.

“I am proud of the major achievements I

have delivered like the Granville Centre,

Eric Tweedale Stadium and the restora-

In 2017 Labor held 43.5 per cent of

primary votes in the Granville Ward, 27.8

per cent was held by the Liberals and 17.1

With Labor as the only major party

in this election, they will be hopeful to

regain a majority in the chamber, however

conservative voters will be given plenty of

options in the Granville Ward, even with

the withdrawal of the Liberal brand.

CUMBERLAND COUNCIL ELECTIONS - GREYSTANES WARD

Fresh blood assured in

Labor hoping for repeat of last election’s Greystanes ward dominance, but

NICOLA BARTON

With only two sitting Councillors,

a vacant seat means

guaranteed fresh blood for the

Greystanes Ward, as 12 candidates battle

it out for their spot.

The third place in the Greystanes Ward

has remained vacant since Liberal Councillor

Ross Grove resigned in 2019.

Council resolved at the time to not hold

a by-election with the 2020 election in

mind, however this was postponed due to

the pandemic.

Sitting Councillor Eddy Sarkis will

recontest as the lead candidate on the Our

Local Community (OLC) ticket.

Cr Sarkis was previously Deputy Mayor

of Cumberland City Council.

Cr Sarkis said he will continue to focus

on delivering more footpaths and better

roads for the people of Greystanes Ward.

“One of my priorities has been to get

footpaths into streets as well as road resurfacing

and maintenance,” he said.

“I will continue to put our local community

first and fight for low rates.”

Accompanying Cr Sarkis on the OLC

ticket is Vedant Agrawal and Carmen

Grima.

“Vedant is a university student doing his

masters in optometry whilst working at a

St Marys real estate and he is concerned

about amenities to teenagers and youngsters

and wants to advocate for more

sporting upgrades, in particular cricket

pitches” Cr Sarkis said.

“Carmen is a Greystanes local and I have

known her since I was a kid and she is an

advocate for people with disabilities.”

Incumbent Councillor Greg Cummings

will also run as an independent, accompanied

by John Brodie and Ray Semaan.

Cr Cummings was Cumberland Council’s

first Mayor and previously served as

Mayor of the former Holroyd Council.

He was kicked out of the Labor party

in 2018 after he didn’t vote for the Labor

candidate in the 2017 Mayoral election.

Cr Cummings will be focusing on amenity

upgrades.

“We’re about putting the ratepayer first,”

he said.

Running alongside Cr Cummings are

independents John Brodie, a Guildford

local and former Mayor and Deputy Mayor

of Holroyd Council, and Ray Semaan, a

Labor candidates Akin Songur, Diane Colman and Sandra Doumit.

well-known and respected community

leader and taxi driver.

Hopeful to fill that Labor void is candidate

Diane Colman who is a fresh face on

the Local Government scene.

Ms Colman is a university lecturer, has

been a member of the Labor Party for 25

years and is following in the footsteps of

her mother Pamela Colman, who was a

Councillor on the former Holroyd Council.

“I felt as if I could take up the baton and

continue the good work my mum did for

the community,” she said.

“We need to put in more support for local

businesses and create better access to

services to help us live better locally.”

CUMBERLAND COUNCIL ELECTIONS - REGENTS PARK WARD

Overdevelopment the

Fresh faces and experienced councillors do battle for Regents Park Ward

NICOLA BARTON

Old and new faces will go head to

head in the Regents Park Ward,

while the city will say goodbye to

a long-term Councillor.

A number of key issues will be at the

forefront of voters’ minds, namely overdevelopment

and community presentation,

as well as infrastructure and parking to

cope with the increase in population.

Incumbent Labor Councillor Kun Huang

will recontest with running mates Sabrin

Farooqui and Hope Atkins.

Sitting Labor Councillor George Campbell

will retire.

Cr Huang said infrastructure, amenity

and restoring community trust will be at

the forefront of his campaign.

“We want to stop the sale of John Street

Car Park and Labor has put in a rescission

motion against that,” he said.

“We also want cleaner streets, green

spaces, more trees, more exercise equipment

and also to encourage residents to

play a part in Council by re-establishing

the community consultation committee.

“I want to restore the community’s trust

in the Council. They feel like their voice

has been taken away by the abolishing of

these important consultation committees,

formerly the Youth and CALD committees.”

Number two on the Labor ticket, Ms

Farooqui is a local community activist,

and number three, Ms Atkins is an English

teacher and advocate for teachers and

public educators.

Hopeful to increase representation is

Our Local Community’s Helen Hughes.

Ms Hughes is a corporate governance

officer who previously ran in the 2017

election as number two on Councillor

Paul Garrard’s ticket.

Her policies this time around surround

improving cleanliness, parking and traffic

with a focus on compliance.

“I’m not happy with the way we are

currently represented within the Regents

Park Ward,” she said.

“One of the things I’m most passionate

about is compliance issues, particularly in

regards to car parking and trucks; we can’t

have trucks parking in residential areas

and blocking driveways.

“I am also concerned about rezoning of

Regents Park and Berala next year when

the infrastructure is just not there.”

Number two on the OLC ticket is

Granville resident Joe Nehme, who has

strong family ties to the Auburn area, and

number three is Muhammad Ali, who is

from Berala.

recontest as an independent after the

NICOLA BARTON

Our Local Community

(OLC) and the Greens will

be fighting to get a seat at

the table of the Wentworthville

Ward, as they go head to head with

three incumbent Councillors.

Labor’s two sitting Councillors

Suman Saha and Lisa Lake will

recontest with running mate and

disability advocate Mark Kunach.

Cr Saha said if elected to Council

the Labor team will work for a

major upgrade to Civic Park and its

wetlands, a Council service centre

in Wentworthville, a new amenity

building in Girraween Park as well

as Town Centre improvements for

Wentworthville, Pendle Hill and

Toongabbie.

They also want to protect

community assets from privatisation,

increase community consultation

and bring back more grants

for community programs.

“People put their trust in local

councils to care for people and

provide essential services – and

that’s what Labor does best,” Cr

Saha said.

“We support policies and plans

which foster social inclusion,

equality of opportunity, sustainable

development, affordable

housing, local business development

and job creation.”

Incumbent Liberal Councillor

Michael Zaiter will recontest as an

independent with running mates

Monica El-Khoury and Melissa

Rahme, wife of Granville Ward

Councillor Joseph Rahme.

Cr Zaiter was contacted for

comment.

The Greens will make its only

Cumberland appearance this election

in the Wentworthville Ward.

Leading the ticket is Sujan

Selventhiran, who previously ran

for the The Greens in the State

Prospect seat in 2015 and in 2017

ran for Cumberland City Council

in the Wentworthville Ward.

Mr Selventhiran has been part of

The Greens for the past decade and

is passionate about sustainability,

clean energy, housing affordability

and providing more open spaces.

“One of the biggest issues here is

overdevelopment. I’m not against

development but believe there

needs to be more green space for

the community,” he said.

“I’m also passionate about bringing

back more grants for groups in

the local community.”

Running second on his ticket

is Michael Rynn and third is

Dot Newland, both of whom are

concerned about overdevelopment

and want to promote clean

energy and improve parks.

Also hopeful to increase representation

is Nadima Kafrouni-

Saba, who will lead the OLC ticket.

Ms Kafrouni-Saba is a mother

of two and was a former Liberal

Councillor and Deputy Mayor of

Holroyd City Council.

She said it was a great learning

experience but hated the politics

of it all and so was looking for a

more independent team this time

Congratulations Year 12

We’ve passed the halfway mark of the HSC exam

period and many students will already be celebrating

after sitting their last exam.

I want to congratulate all of you on making it to this point.

You’ve had to study for your final exams over close to two

years of lockdowns – an incredible achievement.

To those of you still sitting exams – don’t sweat it! Just do

you best and you should be very proud.

And to the families who have supported the Class of 2021,

well done!

Asbestos Awareness Week

You probably know that asbestos is dangerous. But you may not be aware that asbestos can be found in one

in 3 Australian homes.

If your house was built before 1990, chances are it contains asbestos.

So if you’re planning to renovate or demolish your home, it’s important to be know where asbestos might be found and

how to deal with it.

This week is Asbestos Awareness Week – which is all about raising awareness in the community that the

danger of asbestos is far from over.

You can find more information on how to spot asbestos and safely remove it by scanning the QR code or

visiting asbestossafety.gov.au.

Parramatta needs a recovery plan

Parramatta small businesses have now endured almost two years of lockdowns and Light Rail construction.

Last week I held an online roundtable to ask local businesses what the Federal Government needs to do to support them

to survive and thrive in the COVID recovery.

They told me – and Labor’s Shadow Minister for National Reconstruction, Employment, Skills and Small Business, Richard

Marles MP:

Parramatta is facing an unprecedented skills crisis – under this Government apprenticeships and traineeships have

fallen by more than 50% and COVID has stopped skilled migration.

• IT skills can increasingly make or break small businesses – business owners need more options to upskill.

• Local manufacturers are finding it hard to import the things they need to make their products because of the global

supply chain crisis and a lack of locally manufactured alternatives.

• Replacing JobKeeper with multiple payments created confusion and lots of businesses fell through the cracks.

• We need to make sure the Australian Government spends more on procurement - worth close to $70 billion

last financial year - with small and medium businesses.

The Morrison Government cut support for these businesses without a plan for Parramatta’s economic

recovery. I want to thank them all for sharing their ideas with us so we can speak up for Parramatta’s small

businesses in Canberra. If your business needs support, please get in touch with my office.

Labor believes it will make a significant

impact at next month’s Local Government

the Liberal Party’s decision not to field candidates

in Parramatta.

Councillor Donna Davis, who is hoping to

retain her spot in Epping Ward, said it’s a very

telling situation.

TRANSPORT COSTS RISE FOR AVERAGE FAMILIES

Australia’s peak motoring body has

released its latest Transport Affordability

Index showing weekly costs have for the

first time risen above $400 for the average

Australian metropolitan household.

The AAA data shows average weekly

household transport costs have increased

by as much as $58 compared to 2020 and

comes as new research shows Australians

expect to drive for work and holidays more

than ever before.

Australian capital city households are

on average spending more than $401.86

a week on transport costs, while regional

households are spending an average of

$328.51.

“Rising fuel prices are a significant

contributor to rising costs across both

GET VACCINATED.

regional and metropolitan Australia,”

AAA Managing Director Michael Bradley

said.

“With a federal election and two state

elections due next year, this report is a

timely reminder that cost of living pressures

are rising and that policies that

further increase transport costs need to be

avoided.”

WHY RIVER

TURNED PURPLE

An ink manufacturer responsible for

polluting Duck River with purple dye

will pay $88,000 towards environmental

and clean-up programs and the

NSW Environment Protection Authority’s

(EPA) costs of investigating the

incident.

The payment is part of an Enforceable

Undertaking agreed with the EPA.

In April 2020, DIC Australia Pty Ltd

started to produce a purple batch of dye

at its factory in Auburn.

When water containing the purple

dye later entered the site’s stormwater

system unseen, DIC Australia failed

to detect and remove it. The water

containing purple dye then overflowed

into an outlet pipe running directly to

Duck River.

Pumps in the site’s stormwater retention

pit were also turned on, which

discharged more water containing

purple dye into the river.

EPA Executive Director Regulatory

Operations Steve Beaman said the

incident was reported by concerned

members of the public who noticed

Duck River had turned a deep shade of

purple in June last year.

“Duck River is a southern tributary

of the Parramatta River,” Mr Beaman

said.

“This incident had the potential to

cause harm to the animals and plants

living in Duck River, and the wider

catchment. Thankfully on this occasion

no actual harm was observed, and

the purple dye dissipated within a few

days.”

Mr Beaman said DIC Australia should

have protected the local waterway by

removing the contaminated water from

their stormwater system to ensure it

didn’t reach the river.

DIC Australia will train all staff

about their environmental obligations,

engage an independent expert to audit

the site’s stormwater and liquid waste

management systems and then implement

the expert’s recommendations.

The company will also pay $5,000 to

Clean Up Australia and $25,000 to the

NSW Environmental Trust for general

environmental work.

The Parramatta Eels have announced

that captain Clint Gutherson has

agreed to terms until the end of the

2025 season.

It follows intense speculation about

Gutherson’s future. The fullback was

off contract at the end of the next NRL

season and likely to be in high demand .

Parramatta Eels General Manager of

Football Mark O’Neill said it was good

to get the deal done.

“We are delighted for Clint and his

partner Jesse to remain part of the

Eels,” he said.

“Clint is a key leader of the club and

the energy and commitment he brings

to work every day is unparalleled.

Additionally, his on-field performances

week in and week out are always at a

consistently high level.”

One of the highest try scorers in the

team, Clint had 20 try assists and averaged

170 run metres in the 2021 NRL

season.

Pisceans. Your motto for the week

is from actor, director, martial artist and

philosopher Bruce Lee (who was born

on November 27, 1940). “Knowing is not

enough, we must apply. Willing is not

enough, we must do.”

ARIES

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

Gung-ho Rams are fantastic at starting

things but not so good at finishing them,

are they? This week’s stars encourage a

brilliant light-bulb moment, when you

have the enthusiasm to get an ambitious

idea off the ground. Then Saturn and

Chiron boost your patience and persistence,

so you can (hopefully) see the

project through to a successful conclusion

in the not-too-distant future. The

weekend stars favour group projects,

spiritual pursuits, volunteer work and

helping others.

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

Venus (your patron planet) and powerful

Pluto are both visiting your aspirations

zone. So it’s a good time to snuggle

up close with your sweetheart, throw

yourself into a special creative project

or dream up some ambitious goals for

the future. Passion and purpose will take

you far. When it comes to joint finances,

taxes and investments, steer clear of

people with dubious advice or unclear

motives. Make sure you keep a clear

head, stick to the facts and double-check

everything!

There’s plenty of planetary action in

your relationship zones, so the more

you focus on the needs of loved ones,

the happier everyone will be. When it

comes to a close relationship – are you

frustrated about something? Don’t bottle

things up inside. Mercury encourages

you to talk about your feelings and

discuss difficulties. A problem shared is

a problem halved! Your motto is from

writer George Eliot (who was born on

November 22, 1819). “Go forward with a

joyful confidence.”

With the Sun and Mercury both visiting

your wellbeing zone, learn to love

the things that are good for you. Like

nutritious meals, regular exercise, relaxing

in nature and lots of rest. (Crabs

love curling up in bed and need plenty of

good quality sleep.) You’ll find the simple

things in life are definitely the best

things! Like preparing a home-cooked

meal, having an early night, enjoying a

funny conversation with a child, or picking

fresh flowers to put in your home or

office.

This week pleasure-planet Venus is visiting

your wellbeing zone, so make sure

you choose a healthy diet and exercise

program that you actually enjoy. But

are you having problems with a child,

teenager, lover or friend? Focus your

energy on that person and make them

your number one priority. Communicate

with passion and compassion. Energy

goes where intention flows. If you

combine a positive approach with good

listening skills, then the relationship will

gradually improve.

Are you suffering from a crisis of confidence?

Is your perfectionist streak running

rampant? The more you over-think

situations and try to make everything

‘perfect’, the more you will worry and

obsess. And don’t waste time comparing

yourself (and your talents) with

other people. You need to run your own

race. Be inspired by actor, martial artist

and philosopher Bruce Lee (born on

November 27, 1940), “If you spend too

much time thinking about a thing, you’ll

never get it done.”

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

Are you worrying about money? This

week (with impulsive Mars charging

through your $$$ zone) avoid being

uncharacteristically rash with cash and

credit. Mercury urges you to increase

your financial literacy, as you swap

spending for saving, and nurture your

nest egg for the future. Venus (your patron

planet) is visiting your domestic

zone until March 6. So it’s time to hunker

down and enjoy the comforts of home

sweet home and the companionship of

family members.

The global pandemic continues to be

challenging – physically, emotionally,

mentally, socially and financially. But

that’s no excuse to procrastinate! Proactive

Mars is charging through your sign

(until December 13). So it’s time to embrace

options, kickstart projects, roll up

your sleeves and power through tasks

with renewed enthusiasm. Be inspired

by birthday great Bruce Lee (who was

born on November 27, 1940). “To hell

with circumstances; I create opportunities.”

You’re keen to be in charge, as the Sun

and Mercury transit into Sagittarius. But

are you being the boss – or just plain

bossy? Strive to utilise your leadership

skills in clever ways, that bring more

creativity to your work situation and

more harmony to your home life. You’ll

be in freedom bunny mode on Friday,

when you’re keen to do your own thing,

without onerous responsibilities and restrictions.

It’s also a good day to discuss

a diverse range of topics, in person and

online.

With vivacious Venus visiting your sign

(until March 6) you’ll feel unusually flirtatious

as you charm the cynics and dazzle

the doubters. It will be easier to get

what you want if you stop being a Capricorn

control-freak and try a double dose

of diplomacy instead, if you can. Under

the influence of dynamic Mars, strive to

pursue your dreams in a confident and

authentic way. Draw inspiration from

birthday legend Bruce Lee. “Always be

yourself, express yourself, have faith in

yourself.”

EARLY EDUCATION

WITH KATH MCMURTRIE • ALFRED STREET EARLY

EDUCATION CENTRE • 9637 2082

Early education sets the platform

for how children learn in the future

Early education is so much more

than just ‘child minding.’

Inspiring and passionate educators

can be the key to a child’s success.

Noticing and nurturing each child’s

abilities, they play an integral role in

helping them shine.

Laying the foundations

Early education sets the foundations

for how children will learn in the future.

Young children’s brains are still developing,

making the first five years an extra

important time.

High-quality care at the start can shape

thinking, language and math skills for

the future.

Supported and structured playtime

Young children learn best through play

– but that doesn’t mean that all fun-time

is equal.

A qualified teacher can guide playtime

and provide the structure needed to

learn and grow.

Supported play gives children a chance

to experiment, explore the world and, of

course, have fun!

A nurturing environment to learn

and grow

Learning is not only about academics,

but also social and emotional development.

Trained educators create a warm and

inclusive environment, so all children

feel welcome and supported.

As children engage in groups, they

can also develop emotional-regulation,

social skills and positive relationships.

Early Education is an opportunity to

inspire, engage and encourage your

child. At Alfred Street Early Education

Centre, we offer nurturing, qualified,

foundational support – and a boost to

a brighter future. Contact 9637 2082 or

visit AlfredStreet.com.au to learn more.

A CLASSIC

EMILY FESZCZUK

Darlinghurst Theatre Company’s

new production of a

Broadway smash is coming to

the heart of western Sydney

in 2022.

A new take on the Tony Award-winning

musical, ‘A Chorus Line’ is taking the Riverside

Theatre stage from January 6.

Starring in the production, which will be

a part of the Sydney Festival, Angelique

Cassimatis said the show tells the struggles

of performers and the processes behind

show business.

“‘A Chorus Line’ is set in mid 1970s

Broadway where they are auditioning for

the ensemble, or the chorus of a Broadway

show,” she said.

“They have all the leads sorted and are

just looking for the best singers and dancers,

so it shows first-hand experience of

what an actual audition process is like.”

In Amy Campbell’s gritty restaging of the

story, Angelique plays a character named

Cassie.

“Cassie is one of the older members of

the company auditioning for a role in the

show as she wanted to pursue more and

left, but unfortunately things don’t always

go to plan,” she said.

“She has come back to Zach, who is her

very good friend and ex-partner, basically

begging for a job because she can’t get

hired.”

Conceived and originally directed by

Michael Bennett, Angelique said Amy has

done a stellar job in her directorial debut.

“The actual piece itself is so beautifully

written, the songs are well crafted and the

music is iconic, so what Amy has done has

stripped it right back to the script,” she

said.

“She has brought it back to the stories of

the people then added her incredibly hard

and amazing choreography on top.”

Previously postponed twice due to the

pandemic, the show is one not to miss.

“Life, and the storyline is about working

and moving forward but we need to have

a moment to stop to be present and be reminded

to feel,” Angelique said.

“I think this show is full of feeling and

people will be surprised by how much it

moves them and resonates with them.”

‘A Chorus Line’ remains one of the most

successful musicals of all-time. Feel it

for yourself and witness an old classic be

brought back to life.

‘A Chorus Line’ is on at Riverside Theatre

in Parramatta from Thursday, January

6 to Sunday, January 16. Tickets are

from $71. To book or for more information,

call 8839 3399 or visit www.riversideparramatta.com.au.

PREVIEW

Cry Macho

1 hour, 44 minutes

Based on the book, ‘Cry Macho’

stars Clint Eastwood as a one-time

rodeo star and washed up horse

breeder who, in 1978, takes a job

from an ex-boss to bring the man’s

young son home and away from his

alcoholic mother.

Crossing rural Mexico on their way

back to Texas, the unlikely pair faces

an unexpectedly challenging journey,

during which the world-weary

horseman may find his own sense

of redemption through teaching the

boy what it means to be a good man.

At 91-years-old, Eastwood is still

delivering standout performances

and this is one not to be missed.

‘Cry Macho’ opens in cinemas on

November 25.

PREVIEW

Cliff Richard: The Great

80 Tour

2 hours, 30 minutes

Sir Cliff Richard invites you all to be

part of the most fabulous big screen

party of the year!

‘The Great 80 Tour’ captured live from

London’s Royal Albert Hall features a

selection of his greatest hits, and will be

sure to have you swaying in the aisles.

Cliff has just finished his UK tour,

and select Australian cinemas will be

running ‘The Great 80 Tour’.

We may not see Sir Cliff live on stage

in Australia again, so this is the perfect

opportunity to see all of his hits up close

and personal.

Limited screenings will be available at

various cinemas from November 27.

Don’t trust uninformed opinions,

search for expert advice instead

Ever since time began (is there a

song there?) humankind has been

making things up to explain the

unexplainable. We moderns who know

it all have labelled this as mythology.

But mythology still exists and is being

written every day. If you want to see it in

action, just look at the Twitterverse and

apps of the like. Unfortunately, there are

loads of don’t knows who like to form an

opinion and foist it on the other don’t

knows and setting themselves up as high

priest of the new mythology.

What am I rabbiting on about? What

I am saying is that there are persons

out there who know absolutely nothing

about the subject but like to make it up or

jump on a groundswell to lift their social

image in the electroverse. And let’s face

it, the world is full of potential targets for

misinformed social gossip.

As a business person, you can’t afford

to fall victim to these myths. You need

facts that can give you the real information

to run a successful business. I can’t

count the number of times I’ve heard

the excuse “a mate told me” or “such and

such a social media site said”. Useful

information can be found on social

media but check the credentials of the

person who is giving the information,

avoid the footballers’ wives.

Better still, if it comes to matters of

business, Western Sydney Business

Centre has many experienced advisers

who can help you make your way

through the complexities of setting up

and/or running a business.

Need help with your business? Go to

the Business Connect website, look for

the Western Sydney Business Centre

advisors and book one or call Western

Sydney Business Centre on 4721 5011.

I can also help prospective NDIS

providers.

NATHAN TAYLOR

Work is officially underway on the

Billbergia Indoor Sports Centre,

which promises to set a new standard

for sports fans, schools and the community

when it opens in March next year.

The new centre, located in Camellia, will

feature four FIBA basketball courts that will

house over 21 sports and activities, up to 1000

spectators with permanent seating for 600

people, a café with seating for 86 people, an

outdoor garden style milk bar, multipurpose

training rooms, child’s soft play gym and

family-friendly activity rooms.

The 5000-metre square centre will also be

home to the West Sydney Wolves Sports Association

and Diverse Abilities, a not-for-profit

disability organisation dedicated to increasing

sports and recreation participation within the

special needs community.

“The new indoor centre is a win for the

Parramatta Local Government Area and for

western Sydney as a whole,” West Sydney

Wolves and Diverse Abilities Co-Founders,

Ronnie Khalil and Medeya Hamzze said.

“After an intense past two years dealing

with lockdowns, the Billbergia Indoor Sports

Centre will not only offer an outlet for families

Minister for Sport Natalie Ward and integrated transport links and investment in

but on the economical level, a significant

amount of money will be injected into the local

economy.”

Billbergia recently signed a one-year partnership

with Sydney FC’s A-League Women’s team

and sponsored the Sydney FC Academy, which

supports the Sydney FC Youth Academy teams,

adding to a long line of Billbergia investments

in supporting players across multiple sports,

Parramatta MP Dr Geoff Lee backed the

privately owned stadium.

“The Billbergia Indoor Sports Centre is a

win for the community, revolutionising the

competitor experience and injecting millions

of dollars into the local economy,” Ms Ward

said.

“The Billbergia Indoor Sports Centre forms

part of an unprecedented investment in infra-

local cultural facilities, Billbergia Indoor Sports

Centre will be an extremely inviting precinct

with a multi-use sport centre, outdoor space,

indoor activity centre and kids play areas forming

part of the project,” Dr Lee added.

The centre will also be the new of home of the

West Sydney Wolves Basketball Association.

The Billbergia Indoor Sports Centre is on

track to open in the first half of 2022.
