Community <strong>News</strong> Update<br />

Message from Mayor Lake<br />

Have your say about renting in Sydney<br />

After 12 years without a voice, renters and property owners<br />

are being asked by the Minns government to share their<br />

views on critical changes needed to make renting fairer for<br />

all. Trina Jones has recently been appointed as NSW Rental<br />

Commissioner to oversee reforms and improve conditions<br />

for tenants who have been caught in the state’s struggling market.<br />

The NSW Government is also taking steps to increase housing supply<br />

with high-quality new homes to put downward pressure on rent.<br />

To have your say on these reforms or for more information, visit<br />

“We could save lives”: Council<br />

to install Safe Haven baby boxes<br />

ELLIE BUSBY<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta Council could<br />

become the first Council<br />

in Australia to install Safe<br />

Haven Baby Boxes – a last resort<br />

option for parents who want to<br />

safely surrender their baby.<br />

At the latest Council meeting, a<br />

majority of <strong>Parra</strong>matta Councillors<br />

supported the potential installation<br />

of Safe Haven Baby Boxes across the<br />

city.<br />

It comes after a newborn baby<br />

was left abandoned in the backyard<br />

of a Blacktown home in April, her<br />

umbilical cord still attached.<br />

Councillor Ange Humphries<br />

said it’s necessary for Council to<br />

consider what it can do to prevent a<br />

baby being abandoned without care<br />

in <strong>Parra</strong>matta.<br />

“Other countries have these baby<br />

boxes where you’re able to surrender<br />

a child up to 12 months of age<br />

that you are no longer either able to<br />

care for, you believe you can’t care<br />

for, there’s some reason stopping<br />

you to care or some reason stopping<br />

you from surrendering that baby to<br />

the authorities,” she said<br />

Ange Humphries said Safe Haven Baby Boxes can help save lives.<br />

“Having had a child myself with<br />

the support of a family and friends<br />

and great doctors and great people<br />

around me and obviously lots of<br />

support services, I struggled and<br />

I was 30 years of age and it was a<br />

much-planned and much-wanted<br />

baby.<br />

“I can’t imagine the circumstances<br />

for a young person or an<br />

Baby boxes are set to be installed.<br />

older person, or a disabled person or<br />

perhaps somebody who does have a<br />

substance abuse problem.”<br />

Humphries said the boxes, which<br />

would be the first of its kind in<br />

Australia, would sit outside a council<br />

building in a discreet yet accessible<br />

location. When the door is<br />

opened an alarm would be triggered<br />

alerting emergency authorities that<br />

a baby has been surrendered.<br />

Information would also be<br />

provided in the box for the birth<br />

parents to access on healthcare,<br />

mental health and substance abuse<br />

services, as well as what’s going to<br />

happen to their baby.<br />

Humphries said she has seen the<br />

Safe Haven Baby Boxes be successfully<br />

used while working overseas.<br />

“I was working in the United States<br />

for eight months and one of these<br />

safe haven baby boxes was installed<br />

and there were 16 babies that were<br />

successfully surrendered… just in<br />

the time that I worked there,” she<br />

said.<br />

“But it didn’t spark my attention<br />

until it happened in our neighbouring<br />

LGA, in just the last two<br />

months a baby was surrendered<br />

in a backyard, in the elements and<br />

completely abandoned.”<br />

If the boxes are installed in<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta, Humphries said<br />

Council would be helping its most<br />

vulnerable people at their most<br />

difficult time.<br />

“We can come together and we<br />

can avert a crisis before it actually<br />

happens, this is before we find a<br />

child in the dumpster, at the bottom<br />

of a river, left in a park to die,” she<br />

said.<br />

“We could actually save people’s<br />

lives here.”<br />

Council will now prepare a report<br />

to look at potential locations within<br />

each ward where one of the boxes<br />

could be installed, as well funding<br />

and operation of the program.<br />

DOLLY PARTON’S<br />

When you lambast someone for doing nothing<br />

wrong, you set back progress for your chosen<br />

issue or cause twofold.<br />

A photo posted by American celebrity Kristen<br />

Bell to social media last week has generated<br />

plenty of buzz on the Internet.<br />

And it’s not about who was at the table, it’s<br />

about who wasn’t.<br />

Apparently the photo has too many white<br />

people in it and lacks diversity.<br />

Dr Arghavan Salles, a diversity consultant,<br />

suggested such a gathering was “a result of the<br />

systematic exclusion of marginalised people<br />

and further perpetuates the marginalisation.”<br />

My God, what are we doing?<br />

Diversity consultants, the Internet and the<br />

<strong>2023</strong> woke brigade are not the arbiters of who<br />

you can or can’t invite to your dinner party.<br />

It’s not subconscious racism, it’s not a lack of<br />

diversity in their friendship group and it’s certainly<br />

not part of systematic exclusion.<br />

But go ahead, keep kicking people for doing<br />

nothing wrong. All it does is spark debate in<br />

the wrong places.<br />

<strong>Parra</strong> Matters<br />

alanmascarenhas09@gmail.com<br />

A bugbear of mine is that central <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

could do with more great pubs. I’m thinking<br />

the sort of place you’d proudly show off to a<br />

visitor, perhaps chance upon for a nightcap or<br />

pick for a first date.<br />

Of course, there’s the Rose & Crown, the Collector<br />

and the Commercial, all fine establishments<br />

in their own ways. For generations, the<br />

Albion Hotel (soon destined for the gallows)<br />

has been a destination for its great music and<br />

buzzing courtyard.<br />

Nick & Nora’s and Ruse Bar attract a swish<br />

clientele of young suits. However, they very<br />

much represent the “new <strong>Parra</strong>matta”, leaving<br />

an awkward fit for patrons more at home<br />

among comforting fireplaces, tattered carpets<br />

and old-fashioned memorabilia. Those who<br />

recall back in the day when the local watering<br />

hole was a special place of solace and connection,<br />

and the bartender knew everyone’s<br />

favourite tipple.<br />

Traditions don’t happen overnight. They<br />

take years, decades, even centuries to build.<br />

A great pub is the sum of the stories and secrets<br />

that lurk within its walls, always growing<br />

in the retelling and whispered down from one<br />

generation to the next.<br />

It’s a venue for legendary gatherings on special<br />

occasions like birthdays and wedding anniversaries.<br />

A game of two-up on Anzac Day or sporting<br />

fixtures like the Melbourne Cup.<br />

I’ve been thinking about all this lately given<br />

recent reports that the Royal Oak Hotel<br />

on Church Street – as many of us suspected<br />

Index<br />

@alanmasc<br />

Why <strong>Parra</strong>matta needs more pubs<br />

<strong>News</strong>...........................................................1-17<br />

ZEST Awards...................................<strong>18</strong>-20<br />

Life & Style.........................................21-24<br />

– never needed to be knocked down for the<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta light rail. It was unquestionably a<br />

great pub – and one of Australia’s oldest.<br />

An inn and horse stables was first erected on<br />

site in <strong>18</strong>13 by the emancipated convict John<br />

Metcalf. John Tunks, descendant of the First<br />

Fleet voyager William Tunks, ran the Shamrock,<br />

Rose and Thistle, which was finally renamed<br />

the Royal Oak four decades later.<br />

It was a rare example of a Victorian-era hotel<br />

and an institution before, during and after<br />

Eels games.<br />

I remember being there on a 40-degree Australia<br />

Day in 2020, when it was packed to the<br />

rafters with old-timers. Barely four months<br />

later, under cover of darkness and public panic<br />

over COVID-19, Transport for NSW sent the<br />

bulldozers in.<br />

Today, the dismal nature of this decision is<br />

clear.<br />

According to Transport for NSW, demolition<br />

of the Royal Oak was necessary to provide<br />

space for two light rail tracks, traffic lanes for<br />

vehicles and pedestrian footpaths. As a result,<br />

we now have – as Suzette Meade of the North<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta Residents Action Group memorably<br />

put it – a footpath wide enough for two<br />

buses.<br />

Bizarrely, the original Cobb & Co Stables<br />

have been retained in a cursory nod to heritage<br />

values, but the pub itself has gone, confined<br />

to history.<br />

Sadly, the overwhelming majority of the site<br />

has remained untouched by the light rail construction<br />

and is now strewn with weeds.<br />

Entertainment...............................25-35<br />

Business Directory....................36-37<br />

Sport....................................................38-40<br />

The failure to preserve the Royal Oak lies<br />

squarely with the previous state government.<br />

However, some culpability should also attach<br />

to the City of <strong>Parra</strong>matta, which proved unable<br />

to rally and work together effectively to<br />

reverse the original decision. A pocket park is<br />

one idea to salvage what is left – but like the<br />

sleek new “Royal Oak Hotel” built across the<br />

road, it’s hard to imagine things ever being the<br />

same.<br />

Central Sydney is full of grand, historic venues.<br />

Would Transport for NSW ever knock<br />

down Fortune of War in The Rocks, where<br />

Aussie diggers used to go for a final swig before<br />

their deployments?<br />

If Harts Pub were ever headed for the chopping<br />

block, there would be an outcry. So why<br />

is <strong>Parra</strong>matta different?<br />

You can imagine a group of politicians and<br />

planners sitting in faraway Sydney seeing our<br />

history as a trivial inconvenience.<br />

We’re fast reaching the point where it’s time<br />

to take more concerted action to protect some<br />

of <strong>Parra</strong>matta’s special places. If heritage<br />

codes can’t save the Royal Oak, they’re not<br />

worth the paper they’re written on and require<br />

a rethink.<br />

The genius of <strong>Parra</strong>matta is to combine our<br />

indigenous beginnings, colonial history and<br />

contemporary migrant society – all in the one<br />

blessed grid.<br />

It’s time we treasured them equally – remembering<br />

all that connects our past to our<br />

present and makes this town so special.<br />

Iconic site gets new life<br />

‘The Green’ in North <strong>Parra</strong>matta offers revitalised sportsground and open space<br />

ELLIE BUSBY<br />

North <strong>Parra</strong>matta’s ‘The<br />

Green’ has officially<br />

opened to the public to<br />

help boost participation in grassroots<br />

sport.<br />

A ceremony was recently held at<br />

The Green, celebrating the opening<br />

of the revitalised 8,000 square<br />

metre sportsground with a plaque<br />

unveiling, community activities<br />

and plenty of elite athletes in<br />

attendance.<br />

Now available for anyone from<br />

the general public or local sporting<br />

groups to enjoy, The Green will look<br />

to become a space where “future<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta sports stars” can get<br />

their footing.<br />

Speaking at the event, Minister for<br />

Lands and Property and Minister<br />

for Sport Steve Kamper said the<br />

opening of The Green is a wonderful<br />

outcome.<br />

“The Green at <strong>Parra</strong>matta North<br />

is a wonderful outcome for the<br />

community, and a new open space<br />

for sports organisations to run their<br />

programs and activities,” he said.<br />

“Between <strong>Parra</strong>matta Powerhouse,<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta Aquatic Centre<br />

Sports Minister Steve Kamper with junior sports stars at the official opening of ‘The Green’.<br />

and now ‘The Green’, the community<br />

offerings for <strong>Parra</strong>matta just<br />

keep getting better and better.<br />

“I look forward to seeing our<br />

future <strong>Parra</strong>matta sports stars get<br />

their start at this fantastic new<br />

community sportsground.”<br />

A collaboration with the City of<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta Council and the Office<br />

of Sport, The Green now has accessible<br />

amenities, a rejuvenated turf<br />

playing surface, new temporary<br />

change room facilities and sustainable<br />

LED lighting.<br />

State Member for <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

Donna Davis said the community<br />

has been waiting a long time for The<br />

Green.<br />

“It is wonderful to be opening this<br />

new open space for the people of<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta,” she added.<br />

“This is a part of <strong>Parra</strong>matta with<br />

a compelling story and deep history,<br />

and The Green, a revitalised sportsground,<br />

will bring more people to<br />

this incredible precinct.”<br />

First established in <strong>18</strong>79, The<br />

Green has been brought back to<br />

life as part of the revitalisation of<br />

the <strong>Parra</strong>matta North precinct.<br />

This space intends to reflect North<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta’s history, including<br />

the stories from the Burramattagal<br />

people of the Dharug Nation, and of<br />

other Aboriginal people who have<br />

new and enduring connections to<br />

this place.<br />

Calling it an excellent new<br />

community sportsground, City of<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta Lord Mayor Sameer<br />

Pandey said The Green at North<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta will provide a space to<br />

The Green has officially been unveiled.<br />

nurture the talented <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

athletes of today and for generations<br />

to come.<br />

“This sportsground is a terrific<br />

addition for our thriving population<br />

and for grassroots sports which is<br />

so essential in encouraging health,<br />

wellness and a sense of community<br />

in our great city,” he said.<br />

LOCAL NEWS<br />

Premier’s promise to the west<br />

<strong>Parra</strong> <strong>News</strong> Editor Troy Dodds interviewing Premier Chris Minns. Photo: Megan Dunn.<br />

TROY DODDS<br />

When Premier<br />

Chris Minns<br />

walked into a<br />

humble, little-known western<br />

Sydney café last Tuesday<br />

afternoon, customers<br />

offered a ‘I know that guy’<br />

glance before quickly going<br />

back to their coffees and<br />

tasty treats.<br />

He’s not necessarily the<br />

person you expect to stroll<br />

into your local coffee shop,<br />

especially with no throng<br />

of cameras and journalists<br />

in tow.<br />

Minns had just left those<br />

journalists a couple of<br />

hundred metres down<br />

the road after making<br />

an announcement about<br />

the appointment of the<br />

New South Wales Rental<br />

Commissioner.<br />

He’s sitting down exclusively<br />

with <strong>Parra</strong> <strong>News</strong> to<br />

discuss his first four months<br />

as Premier and the challenges<br />

of a new government.<br />

Minns lives the humble<br />

‘nice guy’ persona he<br />

portrayed during the election<br />

campaign. While ordering<br />

coffees, he introduces<br />

himself to a local family.<br />

After our interview, he takes<br />

an impromptu tour of the<br />

cafe’s kitchen and back-ofhouse<br />

facilities – genuinely<br />

intrigued by its operations.<br />

Minns is still very much<br />

in his honeymoon period as<br />

Premier but knows the pressure<br />

is on him to deliver.<br />

“I know that voters are<br />

going to pay on performance<br />

and that means delivering<br />

on our campaign pledges,”<br />

he said.<br />

“[People will judge us on<br />

whether] we are able to, in<br />

an honest way and a credible<br />

way take on the issues<br />

confronting New South<br />

Wales and they include the<br />

state of the budget, which is<br />

$<strong>18</strong>7 billion worth of debt.<br />

“We’re butting up against<br />

these two things. The desire<br />

to do something for our<br />

community, which we want<br />

to invest in, but also... what a<br />

terrible inheritance that has<br />

been passed on to the next<br />

generation. It’s tough.”<br />

Minns is adamant tackling<br />

the rental crisis is one of his<br />

core priorities, but says he’s<br />

keen to ensure certain areas<br />

in the west are not over-burdened<br />

with new housing.<br />

“Unless we can do something<br />

about the rental<br />

market in the short term<br />

and the long term, people<br />

are just going to leave,” he<br />

said.<br />

“And that means starting<br />

families in Queensland,<br />

Victoria and South Australia<br />

and not contributing to the<br />

communities right here.<br />

We’ve got to try to get this<br />

right.<br />

“About 10 years ago people<br />

would say am I ever going<br />

to be able to afford a house,<br />

now they’re saying am I ever<br />

going to be able to rent a<br />

place.”<br />

Long-term, housing supply<br />

is the real issue – and Minns<br />

is aware of the delicate<br />

balance between delivering<br />

Premier Chris Minns in western Sydney last week.<br />

more development and<br />

dropping more housing<br />

where infrastructure can’t<br />

keep up.<br />

“We’ve said constantly<br />

western Sydney cannot<br />

be the sole area of growth<br />

within Sydney,” he said.<br />

“The previous government<br />

had identified the north<br />

west growth corridor, the<br />

south west corridor and<br />

Penrith as the major areas<br />

of population increase,<br />

but there’s nowhere near<br />

enough infrastructure to<br />

cope with the population as<br />

it currently exists let alone<br />

the proposed increases.<br />

“My government has got to<br />

do a better job in explaining<br />

that to families in western<br />

Sydney because I think<br />

while we’re irritating people<br />

close to the coast with our<br />

proposed changes, I don’t<br />

think we’re saying in clear<br />

enough terms to people who<br />

live in western Sydney that<br />

we get it, and we understand<br />

you can’t be expected to<br />

take the vast majority of<br />

population growth.”<br />

Another issue Minns is<br />

keen to address is domestic<br />

violence, which statistics<br />

say is a particular problem<br />

in the west. He has noted<br />

recent comments by the<br />

NSW Police Commissioner,<br />

Karen Webb, in which she<br />

called for offenders to be<br />

treated like terrorists and<br />

organised crime members.<br />

“NSW Police are often<br />

called in at the point where<br />

an offender needs to be<br />

locked up or charged and<br />

they see the real world<br />

implications of family and<br />

domestic violence, which<br />

potentially policy makers<br />

and Premiers don’t see faceto-face,<br />

so we have to take<br />

what she says seriously and<br />

we are,” Minns said.<br />

“We’re looking all kinds of<br />

potential policy changes to<br />

keep people safe. It’s not just<br />

about that though. It’s also<br />

about housing and ensuring<br />

that women in particular<br />

have an opportunity to leave<br />

an abusive relationship and<br />

go into safe and secure<br />

housing.<br />

“We’re looking at specific<br />

measures for people who are<br />

facing family and domestic<br />

violence that can make a<br />

difference.”<br />

While Minns said budget<br />

challenges would continue<br />

to collide with “natural<br />

instincts” to make interventions,<br />

he said he’s loving the<br />

job – and the roller coaster<br />

ride it entails.<br />

“There’s a buzz about<br />

jumping in the car in the<br />

morning and listening to<br />

the radio and hearing your<br />

day described to you on the<br />

air waves,” he said.<br />

“It’s a massive privilege<br />

and I’m having a ball.”<br />

Loss of community icon<br />

Tributes pour in after loss of Warren Glenny, who “embodied the spirit” of our city<br />

ELLIE BUSBY<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta RSL and Castle Hill RSL<br />

long-serving past President Warren<br />

Glenny has been remembered for a<br />

lifetime of service, following his death on<br />

<strong>July</strong> 5.<br />

Described as a “man of considerable<br />

compassion”, City of <strong>Parra</strong>matta Council<br />

recently held a minute of silence in honour of<br />

the retired Major General at the latest meeting.<br />

“This is a very important and appropriate<br />

recognition of a man who truly, truly, truly<br />

embodied the spirit of <strong>Parra</strong>matta and Castle<br />

Hill,” Councillor Ange Humphries said.<br />

Passing away at 87-years-old, Glenny was a<br />

member of the <strong>Parra</strong>matta RSL for 36 years<br />

and a President for 17 years. He was an Order<br />

of Australia recipient as well as the President<br />

and Patron of numerous service, community<br />

and charitable groups and industry bodies<br />

over many decades.<br />

“I know that nearly everybody in this<br />

Chamber knows him as a friend, somebody<br />

at the club that we’ve seen at ANZAC Day’s<br />

for many, many, many years and also as one<br />

of the most honourable gentleman we’ve ever<br />

met,” Humphries added.<br />

“He led the group of war widows and<br />

veterans and particularly was very, very<br />

successful in making sure Vietnam veterans<br />

A funeral was recently held for CHRG’s long-serving past President Warren Glenny.<br />

were recognised and supported when other<br />

organisations weren’t supporting them.”<br />

Reflecting on when they used to work<br />

together as board members, Humphries told<br />

the Chamber of a time when Glenny passed<br />

along some words of wisdom.<br />

“He took me aside and he said to me ‘I’m old<br />

enough to be your grandfather but I just want<br />

to let you know never be afraid to stand up and<br />

speak, even if you voice waivers’,” she said.<br />

“And I often think about that when I’m a<br />

Warren Glenny has passed away.<br />

little bit frightened or a bit intimidated to say<br />

something.”<br />

Castle Hill RSL Group (CHRG) Chief Executive<br />

Officer David O’Neil said in Facebook<br />

post that Glenny led the group through its<br />

Lassie has changed<br />

Summer’s life forever<br />

ELLIE BUSBY<br />

The Petbarn Foundation is<br />

encouraging locals to help<br />

make an “invaluable difference”<br />

by donating to the 10th annual<br />

Seeing Eye Dogs Appeal.<br />

Since getting her Seeing Eye Dog<br />

Lassie 10 months ago, Wentworth<br />

Point resident Summer Giddings’ life<br />

has completely changed.<br />

“She has given me so much more<br />

confidence to do things on my own,”<br />

she said.<br />

“Especially in busier environments<br />

such as shopping centres and the<br />

university campus, and travelling on<br />

public transport.<br />

“I have always been pretty reliant on<br />

family to guide me and going out with<br />

friends used to be hard since I don’t<br />

think they really understand how to<br />

guide me. Having Lassie makes a huge<br />

difference.”<br />

A 20-year-old student at Macquarie<br />

University, Giddings was born with<br />

optic nerve hypoplasia and cerebral<br />

palsy, which severely restricts her<br />

vision.<br />

Although she still leads an active<br />

lifestyle and enjoys sports such as<br />

Parathletics and blind tennis, navigating<br />

unfamiliar environments and<br />

busy places was always a challenge for<br />

Giddings.<br />

It wasn’t until she met girl with a similar<br />

condition, who had her own dog at<br />

a blind sports camp, that Giddings’<br />

journey to get her first Seeing Eye Dog<br />

begun and she was matched with<br />

Lassie.<br />

“Lassie has given me a huge gift of<br />

independence. I now have more confidence<br />

to get out and about on my own<br />

and with my friends,” she said.<br />

“I am grateful to benefit from such a<br />

healthy and highly trained Seeing Eye<br />

Dog.”<br />

Vision Australia said it costs over<br />

$50,000 and takes up to two years to<br />

train a Seeing Eye Dog, with training<br />

beginning from eight weeks of age.<br />

Summer Giddings and her Seeing Eye<br />

Dog, Lassie.<br />

Puppies begin to learn basic socialisation<br />

skills from volunteer carers<br />

supported by puppy development<br />

trainers then, at approximately 12<br />

months of age, they progress for up to<br />

five months of expert training with a<br />

specialised instructor.<br />

Petbarn is now aiming to raise over<br />

$1 million to fund the training of 20<br />

Seeing Eye Dogs.<br />

Giddings is encouraging locals to<br />

‘train-up a pup’ by donating at Petbarn<br />

stores or online to support the training<br />

and expertise needed to turn puppies<br />

in to Seeing Eye Dogs.<br />

“I think it’s amazing what Petbarn<br />

are doing with this campaign. I’m<br />

always encouraging people to support<br />

Seeing Eye Dogs Australia,” she said.<br />

Vision Australia CEO Ron Hooton<br />

said the Petbarn Foundation Seeing<br />

Eye Dogs Appeal is the biggest annual<br />

fundraiser for Vision Australia Seeing<br />

Eye Dogs.<br />

“By donating, you’re not only helping<br />

us train and provide Seeing Eye Dogs<br />

to Aussies who need them, but you’re<br />

giving someone the gift of greater<br />

independence,” he said.<br />

Donations to the Petbarn Foundation<br />

Seeing Eye Dogs Appeal can be made<br />

at any Petbarn store or online at www.<br />

petbarn.com.au/seda.<br />

Local Summer Giddings is encouraging others to donate to the<br />

McHappy<br />

100th Birthday!<br />

LOCAL NEWS<br />

ELLIE BUSBY<br />

The Ronald McDonald House Westmead<br />

has celebrated the 100th birthday<br />

of one of its first ever volunteers.<br />

In 1996, Westmead local Lillian Ries walked<br />

down the street from her home to check out<br />

the Ronald McDonald House that was in the<br />

process of being built. After chatting with<br />

the team, she found out that the house would<br />

be where the families of children in hospital<br />

could get some rest away from the ward.<br />

She immediately put her name forward as a<br />

volunteer to help out.<br />

Over the next 26 years, Ries willingly<br />

donated thousands of hours of her own time<br />

to help support the families of sick children<br />

staying at the house.<br />

She also provided support to staff and fellow<br />

volunteers, with her own experience used to<br />

help train up new volunteers<br />

Now, the team at Ronald McDonald House<br />

Westmead are looking to give back to Ries by<br />

surprising her with a celebration of her 100th<br />

birthday at the house where she spent so<br />

many years helping out.<br />

Head of Family Services Josh Binns said<br />

he knows Ries will “be touched” that they<br />

decided to hold a party for her at the house.<br />

“Lillian was a volunteer with us for over 20<br />

years, the first volunteer at the house here in<br />

Westmead, so it’s nice to recognise someone<br />

that gave so much not only to the charity but<br />

to the families we help,” he told <strong>Parra</strong> <strong>News</strong>.<br />

From greeting families and asking if they<br />

would like a cup of tea to housekeeping, Binns<br />

said Ries did a lot for Ronald McDonald House<br />

Westmead.<br />

“She did many things, the housekeeping<br />

around the house, administration work, planning<br />

activities and things like that,” he said.<br />

“Supporting other volunteers on their journey<br />

and helping them understand the importance<br />

of serving hard, I think she’s probably<br />

helped 100 volunteers in her time.”<br />

Describing her as a good, kind-hearted<br />

person, Binns said it’s estimated during her<br />

time volunteering Ries would have met and<br />

supported well over 1000 families.<br />

“I’m sure the impact that she had on those<br />

families’ lives is something that they’ll never<br />

forget, she’ll always be in their thoughts,” he<br />

added.<br />

“[For her] it was always about helping<br />

others.”<br />

Binns is now hoping that Ries’ story of being<br />

a volunteer will inspire others to sign up and<br />

lend a helping hand to Ronald McDonald<br />

House Westmead.<br />

“Once you come in and do one shift you fall<br />

in love with the charity and the work they do<br />

and you go on to do to stay for years to come,”<br />

he said.<br />

PEOPLE<br />

TURNING BACK TIME<br />

Pictured here is 32-year-old<br />

Private Charles Laird, a boilermaker<br />

from Blaxell Street, Granville<br />

who was born in Glasgow,<br />

Scotland.<br />

He was married to Bessie Marie<br />

Laird and was the father of Leonard<br />

Charles Laird and Olive Esther<br />

Marie Laird.<br />

On September <strong>18</strong>, 1916, Charles<br />

enlisted and was assigned to the<br />

39 Infantry Battalion, 5 Reinforcements.<br />

He embarked with his unit<br />

from Sydney aboard the HMAT<br />

Benalla A24 on November 9, 1916.<br />

Charles proceeded overseas to<br />

France on <strong>July</strong> 16, 1917. He marched<br />

out to his unit on August 2, 1917 and<br />

was taken on strength on August 4,<br />

1917.<br />

He was killed in action in Belgium<br />

on October 4, 1917, which was<br />

his birthday. Charles has been<br />

memorialised in the Menin Gate<br />

Memorial in Belgium.<br />

Granville Boys High School, taken in<br />

the 1950s!<br />

The photo shows some students<br />

and a teacher in a Geography class<br />

pointing to the world map.<br />

Granville Boys High School officially<br />

opened in October 1925 as<br />

Granville Central Technical High<br />

School. During the 1950s, new buildings<br />

were constructed and the school<br />

was renamed Granville Secondary<br />

Technical College. By 1966, the<br />

school had undergone many changes<br />

and had officially been renamed<br />

Granville Boys High school.<br />

How to create buzz and engagement<br />

around your social media content<br />

THE DHARUG CONNECTION<br />

A Special Weekly Feature dedicated to<br />

promoting Indigenous culture, education<br />

and respect in western Sydney.<br />

Enhancing your social media content<br />

is crucial for standing out in a<br />

crowded online landscape. Here are<br />

several ways to make your social media<br />

content more engaging and impactful:<br />

1. Know your audience: Understand who<br />

your target audience is and tailor your<br />

content to their preferences, interests,<br />

and needs. Your audience is your biggest<br />

supporter, tailor your content to what<br />

they want to see.<br />

2. Compelling visuals: Incorporate<br />

eye-catching visuals such as high-quality<br />

images, videos, infographics, and<br />

animations to grab attention and<br />

increase engagement. Use relevant and<br />

appealing imagery that aligns with your<br />

brand and message.<br />

3. Be entertaining: Always use your<br />

personality to your advantage. Be<br />

humorous and creative to make your<br />

content more entertaining and shareable.<br />

Memes, clever wordplay, and puns<br />

can help you grab attention and engage<br />

with your audience. Also stay up to date<br />

with current trends.<br />

4. Interactive elements: Incorporate<br />

interactive elements into your content<br />

to encourage participation and engagement.<br />

Polls, quizzes, surveys, contests,<br />

and interactive videos are effective ways<br />

to involve your audience and make them<br />

feel a part of the conversation.<br />

5. Provide value: Offer valuable information,<br />

insights, tips, and resources to your<br />

audience. Share educational content,<br />

tutorials, how-to guides, and industry<br />

updates that align with their interests<br />

and address their pain points.<br />

6. User-generated content (UGC):<br />

Encourage your followers to generate<br />

content related to your brand or products.<br />

Repost and feature user-generated<br />

content, as it not only builds a sense of<br />

community but also showcases social<br />

proof and authenticity.<br />

7. Consistent branding: Maintain a<br />

consistent brand identity across your<br />

social media platforms. Use consistent<br />

colours, fonts, and keep being yourself!<br />

8. Call-to-action (CTA): Clearly state<br />

your desired action for your audience.<br />

Whether it’s to like, comment, share,<br />

visit your website, or make a purchase,<br />

include a strong and compelling callto-action<br />

in your posts to encourage<br />

engagement and conversions.<br />

9. Engage with your audience: Respond<br />

to comments, messages, and mentions<br />

promptly. Engage in conversations, ask<br />

questions, and actively listen to your<br />

audience to build a sense of community<br />

and foster meaningful connections.<br />

Remember, authenticity and consistency<br />

are key to building a strong social media<br />

presence. Experiment with different<br />

formats, monitor your results, and adapt<br />

your strategy based on what works best.<br />

ZEST AWARDS – CELEBRATING GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY’S COMMUNITY HEROES<br />

Over 13 years, the ZEST Awards<br />

have established themselves as<br />

Western Sydney’s premier platform<br />

for recognising and celebrating<br />

their achievements. The ZEST<br />

Awards, led by Western Sydney<br />

Community Forum, are about<br />

people and stories – shining a light<br />

on the amazing individuals and<br />

organisations we work with who<br />

make a profound impact in their<br />

communities.<br />

On 23 June <strong>2023</strong>, over 500<br />

members of the Western Sydney<br />

community— including Deputy<br />

Premier of NSW Prue Car and<br />

City of <strong>Parra</strong>matta Lord Mayor<br />

ZEST AWARDS <strong>2023</strong><br />

Sameer Pandey attended the<br />

<strong>2023</strong> ZEST Awards Ceremony at<br />

Accor Stadium. The event provided<br />

an opportunity to recognise and<br />

celebrate the achievements of<br />

ZEST nominees and winners<br />

across 10 different categories,<br />

representing the diversity work<br />

being done across the community<br />

of Western Sydney.<br />

The continued growth of the ZEST<br />

Awards was particularly noticeable<br />

this year through the record number<br />

of nominations that were received,<br />

increasing the recognition for those<br />

working with communities.<br />

Western Sydney is home to<br />

over 2.5 million people. We are<br />

a growing community with ever<br />

expanding needs and aspirations.<br />

Our community sector has never<br />

been more crucial to ensuring the<br />

people of Western Sydney are<br />

supported and championed. This<br />

work is embodied in the effort<br />

and dedication of the volunteers,<br />

leaders and community groups who<br />

are nominated for ZEST Awards.<br />

Western Sydney Community Forum<br />

would once more like to take this<br />

opportunity to congratulate our<br />

<strong>2023</strong> ZEST Award winners.<br />

We would also like to express<br />

our special thanks to our ZEST<br />

<strong>2023</strong> WINNERS/INDUCTEES<br />

Ambassadors who represent ZEST<br />

through their everyday work in the<br />

community.<br />

Finally, it is important that we<br />

acknowledge our event partners for<br />

the <strong>2023</strong> ZEST Awards, National<br />

Australia Bank, Western Sydney<br />

University, City of <strong>Parra</strong>matta and<br />

Link Wentworth, and our media<br />

partners <strong>Parra</strong> <strong>News</strong> and The<br />

Western Weekender.<br />

It is only with their support and the<br />

support of our other ZEST partners<br />

that the ZEST Awards continues to<br />

be able to champion our region’s<br />

community heroes.<br />

business owners, social entrepreneurs,<br />

conservationists, and volunteers.<br />

photos, visitors will also be able to find out<br />

more about each of the <strong>Parra</strong>ma ta locals by<br />

scanning QR codes to see interviews, videos<br />

One of the people captured in the series<br />

of photos is Tahera Nassrat, a self described<br />

“refugee girl turned boss lady,” who moved<br />

to Australia almost 19 years ago after fleeing<br />

Afghanistan fo lowing the Taliban coming to<br />

Now a tax accountant and business<br />

coach, Nassrat founded the Afghan Peace<br />

Foundation in 2019 to help refugees and<br />

immigrants lead self-su ficient lives. She said<br />

it’s <strong>Parra</strong>ma ta that has made her who she is<br />

“Refugee girls from Afghanistan, firs thing<br />

that comes to our mind ‘you are an Afghan<br />

girl, you can’t do it’,” she said.<br />

“In <strong>Parra</strong>ma ta, I say, I can do this. You<br />

need to live the life of <strong>Parra</strong>ma ta, you need<br />

to breathe the air of <strong>Parra</strong>matta, it makes you<br />

feel confident.<br />

“It makes you feel [like] who you want to be.”<br />

COURT’S VERDICT ON MOTHER WHO LEFT CHILDREN IN HOT CAR<br />

COPS FORCED TO FREE KIDS<br />

MAKAYLA MUSCAT<br />

A<br />

Granville. The court heard that they were in<br />

the car for at least 20 minutes before police<br />

were alerted by a concerned witness.<br />

According to police, the front and rear<br />

windows were down about an inch. They say<br />

they managed to force a window open, unlock<br />

She was represented by a lawyer who asked<br />

expressed concerns over leaving children<br />

una tended at any time, let alone during “the<br />

height of summer”.<br />

She told the court that there needs to be<br />

general deterrence so other good and caring<br />

parents do no take the same shortcut in the<br />

future.<br />

“The consequences can be devastating,”<br />

and fined $1000.<br />

Monday night’s New Moon activates<br />

your work and daily routine zone so it’s<br />

a good week to start a job, launch a business,<br />

begin a new diet or embark on a<br />

rebooted exercise program. With Venus<br />

in your relationship zone, it’s time to<br />

harmonise, compromise and cooperate<br />

with the main people in your life. As<br />

birthday great Cat Stevens sings, “peace<br />

train sounding louder … come on the<br />

peace train.” Get in quickly before Venus<br />

turns retro on the weekend!<br />

If you’re involved with a group, class,<br />

club or organisation, then expect<br />

power plays and personality clashes. A<br />

partnership could also be placed under<br />

temporary strain. When it comes to<br />

your social circle, aim to be much more<br />

discriminating. Don’t waste precious<br />

time on negative people who undermine<br />

your confidence. Surround yourself<br />

with stimulating new friends as well as<br />

trusted old mates. Thursday highlights<br />

compassion, creativity and spirituality.<br />

This week there are difficult Mars/<br />

Saturn and Sun/Pluto oppositions, so<br />

your bossy Aries side could take over<br />

(especially at home and/or work). If you<br />

sweat the small stuff, then you’ll end up<br />

feeling tired and emotional by the end of<br />

the week. Perhaps it’s time to de-stress,<br />

as you meditate, contemplate, ruminate<br />

and relax. You might just enjoy it! Plus<br />

pay close attention to a developing<br />

domestic situation, and the symbolic<br />

messages in your nightly dreams.<br />

With two oppositions and Venus<br />

slowing down (before it turns retrograde<br />

on the weekend) the intensity levels<br />

ratchet up, and issues involving relatives,<br />

friends, neighbours, travel or education<br />

could be complicated. Jealous thoughts<br />

and possessive behaviour are also a<br />

danger. If you’re not careful, you could<br />

find yourself embroiled in a fiery argument<br />

or a frustrating power struggle.<br />

Smart Bulls will step back and gain some<br />

much-needed perspective.<br />

It will be difficult to balance head<br />

and heart this week. That doesn’t<br />

mean you shouldn’t try! Loved ones or<br />

work colleagues will attempt to throw<br />

you off balance, scramble your sense<br />

of certainty, or press your emotional<br />

buttons. But it’s up to you to deflect<br />

their efforts with plenty of Gemini grace<br />

and good humour. Your motto for the<br />

moment is from birthday great Nelson<br />

Mandela, “A good head and a good heart<br />

are always a formidable combination.”<br />

Sensitive Crabs are ruled by the silvery,<br />

changeable Moon. So you can’t help but<br />

be affected by this week’s New Moon in<br />

Cancer, as it stirs up your emotions. Plus<br />

the Sun and Pluto agitate professional<br />

partnerships or romantic insecurities.<br />

But becoming overemotional and unreasonable<br />

won’t help matters. Instead,<br />

tune into the magical promise of the new<br />

moonbeams as you learn to love yourself,<br />

celebrate your strengths and follow your<br />

dreams.<br />

Thursday’s Sun/Neptune trine boosts<br />

your creativity. But Saturday’s tempestuous<br />

Sun/Pluto opposition highlights<br />

your inclination to jealous, possessive,<br />

bossy or overbearing behaviour. So do<br />

your best to loosen your intense grip<br />

on a loved one, otherwise you’ll just<br />

drive them away with your dramatic<br />

pronouncements and demanding Divalike<br />

antics. Then the fiery Sun shifts into<br />

your sign, when it’s time to sparkle and<br />

shine!<br />

Some Virgos will reminisce about an<br />

old love or experience a disappointment,<br />

as you discover you’ve over-committed<br />

energy and enthusiasm to a project (or<br />

relationship) that’s going nowhere. It’s<br />

time to reformulate your goals for the<br />

future, as the New Moon activates your<br />

hopes and wishes zone. But steer clear<br />

of dubious dreamers and manipulative<br />

schemers. Surround yourself with positive<br />

people who promote your talents<br />

and support your dreams.<br />

This week looks rather stressful,<br />

as Venus (your power planet) slows<br />

down before it turns retrograde on the<br />

weekend. Do your best to be patient and<br />

persistent. Your motto for the moment is<br />

from birthday great, Nelson Mandela, “It<br />

always seems impossible until it’s done.”<br />

You could also become unsettled about<br />

issues involving home, work or finances.<br />

So avoid making long-term decisions<br />

until you can view the current situation<br />

from a more objective perspective.<br />

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22<br />

SAGITTARIUS<br />

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21<br />

CAPRICORN<br />

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20<br />

The stars boost your personal<br />

magnetism – and your manipulative<br />

side. Pluto gives you an energy surge that<br />

increases your desire to be in charge.<br />

But, if you want to avoid unnecessary<br />

power struggles and unpleasant dramas,<br />

stop trying to control others. You can be<br />

powerful and passionate – or compulsive<br />

and controlling. If you’re a smart Scorpio,<br />

then you’ll choose the path of least<br />

resistance as you channel your energy in<br />

positive and proactive ways.<br />

You’re keen to expand your knowledge<br />

base, as you pick up ideas and inspiration<br />

from all corners of the world.<br />

Sagittarians are the cosmopolitan global<br />

citizens of the zodiac, so get connecting<br />

with your international buddies ASAP!<br />

But – with the New Moon and the Sun/<br />

Pluto opposition stirring up your $$$<br />

zones – it’s not a good time to lend cash,<br />

borrow money or initiate a joint financial<br />

partnership. Instead, be patient and wait<br />

for a more auspicious week.<br />

This week (courtesy of transformative<br />

Pluto) an obstacle could be placed in<br />

your path. Or you could be drawn into a<br />

power struggle with a relative, friend or<br />

work colleague. Don’t stress and obsess!<br />

Sometimes hurdles help you slow down<br />

and see the path ahead more clearly.<br />

Then you can adjust our compass and<br />

tweak your plans. So keep going Capricorn.<br />

Your motto is from birthday great<br />

Nelson Mandela, “A winner is a dreamer<br />

who never gives up.”<br />

IN THE MIRROR with Cassidy Pearce<br />

Save your skin by spring: It’s time<br />

to shake up your skincare routine<br />

If you’ve gotten this far into<br />

winter and your skin and<br />

lips are starting to look a<br />

little parched, you’re definitely<br />

not alone.<br />

Whilst switching up your<br />

skincare routine might be<br />

scary for those worried about<br />

breaking out or causing<br />

additional irritation, it’s one<br />

surefire way of making sure<br />

your skin is saved by spring.<br />

Moisturisers and masks<br />

Using a high-quality moisturiser<br />

is key to making sure your<br />

face is looking soft and supple<br />

all year round. Ceramides and<br />

hyaluronic acid can be good to<br />

look for when you’re scoping<br />

out ingredient lists, and once<br />

you’ve found a formula you<br />

love, it’s most important to be<br />

packing it on day and night.<br />

Laneige: Water Sleeping<br />

Mask<br />

Sold at Sephora, Korean<br />

beauty brand Laneige is known<br />

for its ability to bring dry skin<br />

back to life.<br />

If you’re looking for an overnight<br />

cure, their Water Sleeping<br />

Mask is perfect to have you<br />

looking well rested, no matter<br />

how many hours your head is<br />

on the pillow.<br />

Barni Skin: Dew Not Disturb<br />

Moisturiser<br />

The newest release from<br />

Barni Skin – your new favourite<br />

vegan, Aussie-made, cruelty-free<br />

skincare brand – the<br />

Dew Not Disturb Moisturiser<br />

is an oil-free, pillowy-soft gel<br />

cream moisturiser that not<br />

only strengthens your skin<br />

barrier, but is also good for the<br />

planet.<br />

Drunk Elephant: Lala Retro<br />

Whipped Cream<br />

This Drunk Elephant favourite<br />

is this year’s Mecca Beauty<br />

Election winner for Best Moisturiser.<br />

Although it’s definitely<br />

on the more expensive side,<br />

this thick and creamy blend<br />

is perfect to revive dull and<br />

parched skin.<br />

Lip treatments<br />

As far as I’m concerned, there<br />

are few things worse than<br />

having, dry, cracked lips – to<br />

the point where I carry around<br />

some sort of lip balm in every<br />

jacket pocket or bag I own.<br />

When it comes to these<br />

types of products, it’s all about<br />

finding one that works for you,<br />

in terms of colour, scent and<br />

consistency. There are endless<br />

options to choose from.<br />

Charlotte Tilbury: Charlotte’s<br />

Magic Lip Oil Crystal<br />

Elixir<br />

For a more luxurious option,<br />

Charlotte Tilbury makes a<br />

beautiful lip oil that provides<br />

endless amounts of moisture<br />

and shine in one convenient<br />

squeeze tube.<br />

Fenty Skin: Cherry Treat<br />

Conditioning And Strengthening<br />

Lip Oil<br />

If you’re looking for a pop of<br />

colour, the Fenty Skin Cherry<br />

Treat Lip Oil can’t be beat. Not<br />

only is it a dry lip cure, but it<br />

also provides your lips with a<br />

plump and juicy look, without<br />

feeling sticky.<br />

Lanolips: The Original<br />

101 Ointment Multipurpose<br />

Superbalm<br />

Having won over 50 major<br />

awards worldwide, it’s no<br />

surprise that the Lanolips 101<br />

Ointment comes in first place<br />

here. The ointment is super<br />

versatile and deeply hydrating,<br />

containing ultra-pure grade<br />

Aussie lanolin.<br />

TRAVEL<br />

GLAMTAINER IS A UNIQUE<br />

OPTION FOR SNOW TRIPS<br />

NATHAN TAYLOR<br />

NRMA JINDABYNE<br />

HOLIDAY PARK<br />

<strong>18</strong>00 766 133<br />

Without anyone at home aging me,<br />

it had been more than 20 years<br />

since my best mate and I visited<br />

the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales<br />

on Year 8 school camp.<br />

So when the opportunity presented itself<br />

recently to visit the snow again, I couldn’t<br />

think of a better person to drag along.<br />

My mate and I set off on our Snowy Mountains<br />

adventure on Friday morning, arriving<br />

in picturesque Jindabyne by mid-afternoon.<br />

We had accommodation booked for two<br />

nights at the NRMA Jindabyne Holiday Park,<br />

a popular place to stay for travellers looking<br />

for a unique, friendly and central location on<br />

the shores of Lake Jindabyne.<br />

While there are plenty of cabins and places<br />

to park your caravan or pitch a tent on site, my<br />

mate and I were treated to a little bit of luxury<br />

– staying in one of the park’s two ‘glamtainers’.<br />

The cleverly converted shipping containers<br />

offer a premium glamping experience with<br />

hotel-style luxuries and contemporary interiors.<br />

The glamtainers are hugely popular with<br />

guests who are looking for a higher-end, more<br />

comfortable camping experience, and those<br />

new to camping who are trialling the idea of<br />

an outdoors holiday with family and friends.<br />

“THE GLAMTAINERS ARE<br />

HUGELY POPULAR WITH<br />

GUESTS WHO ARE LOOKING<br />

FOR A HIGHER-END, MORE<br />

COMFORTABLE CAMPING<br />

EXPERIENCE”<br />

Built by Melbourne-based company GlamXperience,<br />

glamtainers start life as working<br />

shipping containers before being converted<br />

into spacious, stylish accommodation.<br />

The seven-metre extendable glamtainers are<br />

open-plan with both heating and air-conditioning<br />

to suit all seasons. Our glamtainer was<br />

kitted out with a comfortable queen bed, two<br />

single beds in a separate room, kitchenette,<br />

living area, bathroom and outdoor dining<br />

areas overlooking the pristine lake below.<br />

Not only was the accommodation right up<br />

our alley in terms of comfort and style, but the<br />

holiday park itself was situated in an unbelievable<br />

location with shops, restaurants, pubs<br />

and ski rental all within walking distance of<br />

the property.<br />

Following a delicious dinner at the iconic<br />

The Banjo Paterson Inn in Jindabyne, my mate<br />

and I retreated to our glamtainer for an early<br />

night before our big day up the mountain the<br />

following morning.<br />

After eating a scrumptious bacon and egg<br />

roll at the Jindabyne F2 café for breakfast,<br />

we were ready to make our way to Mount<br />

Kosciuszko National Park for a day of fun and<br />

adventure at Perisher Ski Resort.<br />

Instead of driving in unpredictable conditions<br />

and having to worry about fitting<br />

snow chains due to icy roads, we decided to<br />

hop on the hugely convenient and popular<br />

Skitube, which has been taking snow lovers<br />

up to Perisher Valley since the late 1980s.<br />

The Skitube station at Bullocks Flat is located<br />

about a 20-minute drive from Jindabyne and<br />

includes ample free parking. The Skitube runs<br />

regularly throughout the day and evening and<br />

is very spacious to allow people to cart along<br />

their ski and snowboard gear.<br />

Once we arrived at Perisher, which was<br />

about a 15-minute journey through a tunnel,<br />

we hopped off the train and made our way<br />

to the Snowsports Hire Centre where we got<br />

fitted for our snow gear and collected our skis,<br />

helmets and boots.<br />

There, we met up with Ursina, an experienced<br />

ski instructor from Switzerland, who<br />

was about to spend the next two hours with us<br />

(lucky her) on Perisher’s busy slopes.<br />

It was my first time skiing, and our private<br />

lesson with Ursina couldn’t have gone any<br />

better. Not only did I learn to ski unassisted<br />

by the end of it, but I only slipped over once<br />

– a huge win for anyone that knows my track<br />

record doing snow sports.<br />

After we said goodbye to our very helpful<br />

and patient instructor, it was time for my mate<br />

and I to have a go on our own. Our lift tickets<br />

allowed us to ride all the ski lifts open that day,<br />

but we opted to stick to the beginner slope as<br />

that’s where I felt most comfortable.<br />

If you’ve never visited Perisher or haven’t<br />

been in a very long time like us, it remains<br />

the best ski resort in the Snowy Mountains, in<br />

my opinion. While it can get extremely busy<br />

during the school holiday period in particular,<br />

it truly has something for everyone – kids,<br />

adults, beginners, experts.<br />

I’d definitely recommend planning your<br />

next snow trip well in advance, visit Perisher’s<br />

handy website where you can pre-book<br />

everything ahead of time – it’ll save you the<br />

stress and will allow you to enjoy your short<br />

time at the snow even more.<br />

And my last tip… if you love a good hot chocolate<br />

to warm you up, you must pay a visit to<br />

the famous The Man from Snowy River Hotel<br />

in Perisher, where you’ll find the tastiest hot<br />

chocolate and Baileys ever!<br />

ENTERTAINMENT<br />

MOVIES, TELEVISION, MUSIC AND MORE – PARRAMATTA’S LEADING ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE<br />

COLLINS IS<br />

COUNTRY<br />

TO THE CORE<br />

CASSIDY PEARCE<br />

When he’s not volunteering<br />

with the Rural Fire Service<br />

in the Hunter Valley region,<br />

raising his young Daughter,<br />

Ava, with his wife Bec, or acting<br />

as a proud ambassador for R U OK?, singer<br />

Travis Collins is still coming out with killer<br />

country music.<br />

Despite having over two decades in the industry<br />

and nine albums under his belt, he still<br />

feels an overwhelming wave of relief once his<br />

work makes it out into the world, including<br />

when his newest album ‘Any Less Anymore’<br />

was released just last month, on Friday, June<br />

16.<br />

“You sit on a new album, and you’re just<br />

nervous the whole time whether people are<br />

going to like it, or whether they’re not going to<br />

like it,” he said.<br />

“It’s really crazy. You go into the studio,<br />

you’re so confident in these songs – that’s why<br />

you record them in the first place – and then<br />

right on the eve of release, you just get this<br />

crippling self-doubt, and it’s so terrible.”<br />

According to Collins, the subsequent positive<br />

feedback from fans and critics alike has<br />

been even more special given how personal<br />

some of the tracks are.<br />

But, among those are also some songs that<br />

he said are perfect for touring, explaining<br />

why over half the album has ended up on the<br />

setlist.<br />

“It’s the most new songs we’ve ever put in a<br />

setlist – there are six new songs off this album.<br />

Off the last record we maybe put four in there,<br />

but so much of this album is just built for touring,”<br />

he said.<br />

“These songs were kind of like the grooves<br />

and the subject matter that we were missing<br />

in our live show, so naturally we’ve put a lot of<br />

this into the show.”<br />

Touring right off the back of an album’s release<br />

would worry some, but Collins assures<br />

he’s given his true fans more than enough<br />

time to learn all the words.<br />

“The way we release music nowadays is that<br />

there’s often three, sometimes four singles out<br />

by the time you do an album drop, so you see<br />

that on launch night, there’s a few people singing<br />

along to the first few singles, which is cool,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Where it really gets interesting is, on these<br />

first few tour dates, when you see people singing<br />

the songs that they’ve only had access to<br />

for a couple of days.<br />

“It’s really, really inspiring to see that. It’s<br />

like, you must have made it your mission to<br />

get this album as soon as it came out, or start<br />

streaming it immediately. It’s what I love this<br />

job for.”<br />

In addition to fans finding their new favourites<br />

on the album, Collins said the tour has<br />

helped him find his own.<br />

“There’s a song that I only just agreed to put<br />

on the record, but when we play it, it feels like<br />

my favourite song,” he said.<br />

“It’s phenomenal how the more you live with<br />

them and the more you grow with them, how<br />

your favourites change.”<br />

Having last played Panthers at the end of the<br />

COVID pandemic, Collins said he’s ready to<br />

bring the new “high energy” show to the EVAN<br />

Theatre.<br />

“I can’t wait to get there and bring our full<br />

show with everything,” he said.<br />

Travis Collins will be on at the EVAN Theatre<br />

on Friday, <strong>July</strong> 21 at 8pm. Tickets are<br />

$47.95. For more information or to book,<br />

At the movies...<br />

PREVIEW<br />

Mission Impossible:<br />

Dead Reckoning Part One<br />

2 hours, 43 minutes<br />

PREVIEW<br />

Joy Ride<br />

1 hour, 35 minutes<br />

Tom Cruise returns to the screen as Ethan<br />

Hunt in the seventh addition to the ‘Mission<br />

Impossible’ franchise.<br />

With the action and death-defying stunts<br />

that the franchise is known for, ‘Dead Reckoning<br />

Part One’ will not disappoint.<br />

Ethan Hunt and his IMF team must embark<br />

on their most dangerous mission yet:<br />

to track down a deadly new weapon that<br />

could threaten all of humanity before it<br />

falls into the wrong hands.<br />

In a deadly race around the world,<br />

Ethan’s past starts closing in, and he is<br />

forced to consider that nothing can matter<br />

more than his mission – not even the lives<br />

of those he cares about most.<br />

From the same writer and producer as<br />

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ (Adele Lim) comes this<br />

crude and humorous film, ‘Joy Ride’.<br />

We follow four Asian-American women<br />

as they bond and discover the truth of what<br />

it means to know and love who you are,<br />

while they travel through Asia.<br />

As Audrey’s business trip to Asia goes<br />

sideways, she enlists the aid of her childhood<br />

friend, Lolo, her college friend turned<br />

Chines soap star, Kat, and Lolo’s eccentric<br />

cousin. Their experience becomes a journey<br />

of bonding, friendship, belonging,<br />

and wild debauchery. Not being suited to<br />

younger audiences, this is a hilarious and<br />

unapologetically explicit story of identity<br />

and self discovery that will leave you laughing<br />

and warm hearted.<br />

How to beat Str8ts –<br />

Like Sudoku, no single number can<br />

repeat in any row or column. But...<br />

rows and columns are divided by black<br />

squares into compartments. These<br />

need to be filled in with numbers that<br />

complete a ‘straight’. A straight is a set<br />

of numbers with no gaps but can be in<br />

any order, eg [4,2,3,5]. Clues in black<br />

cells remove that number as an option<br />

in that row and column, and are not part<br />

of any straight. Glance at the solution to<br />

see how ‘straights’ are formed.<br />

The Moses & Gutho Show<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta’s Blues Brothers combine to sink the Titans at CommBank Stadium<br />

NATHAN TAYLOR<br />

Five days after being part of<br />

the NSW Blues team that<br />

knocked off Queensland<br />

in Origin III, Mitchell Moses and<br />

Clint Gutherson have once again<br />

combined to defeat another<br />

team from north of the border.<br />

In one of the more entertaining<br />

games of the year, <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

bounced back from last week’s<br />

heavy defeat to the Warriors to<br />

overcome the Gold Coast Titans<br />

25-24 at CommBank Stadium.<br />

Despite being down to 11 men<br />

for a period of the match, the Eels<br />

managed to just do enough in<br />

the end to get their 10th victory<br />

of the year.<br />

Eels skipper Clint Gutherson<br />

scored one of the most unlikely<br />

four-pointers of the season when<br />

he dived over in the corner with<br />

less than 15 minutes remaining.<br />

His Origin teammate Mitchell<br />

Moses then made a clutch sideline<br />

conversion to even things up<br />

at 24-all.<br />

With the game in the balance,<br />

both teams worked hard to get<br />

the advantage in the final 10<br />

minutes, however it was the class<br />

of Moses, once again, who stood<br />

up when it counted.<br />

With five minutes left on the<br />

clock, the 28-year-old nailed a<br />

field goal from right in front to<br />

put the Eels ahead 25-24 and<br />

ultimately win the game.<br />

It was a memorable victory for<br />

the Eels and their fan-base after<br />

the side lost winger Maika Sivo<br />

and prop Reagan Campbell-Gillard<br />

to the sin-bin in the space of<br />

four minutes.<br />

The Titans ran in two tries<br />

while the Eels were down to 11<br />

players, but it was the experience<br />

of Moses and Gutherson who<br />

made sure they’d be smiling and<br />

high-fiving come full-time<br />

“It was a crazy game of footy<br />

wasn’t it? Every time we play<br />

the Gold Coast, it just seems to<br />

go that way,” Eels coach Brad<br />

Arthur said post-match.<br />

“There’s plenty of things there<br />

that I could be critical of, but I<br />

just want to focus on winning a<br />

tight game and it’s going to be<br />

crucial coming into the back end<br />

of the year.”<br />

The Eels take on the Cowboys<br />

this Saturday in Townsville.<br />

Brown returns in August<br />

Eels hand down additional punishment to star five-eighth ahead of NRL return<br />

MAKAYLA MUSCAT<br />

Star <strong>Parra</strong>matta five-eighth<br />

Dylan Brown has accepted<br />

the NRL and club sanctions<br />

handed down over recent criminal<br />

proceedings.<br />

Last month, Brown pleaded<br />

guilty to two counts of sexually<br />

touching another person without<br />

consent, following an incident<br />

that took place at a licenced<br />

premises in Double Bay on June 3.<br />

The convictions were recorded<br />

by the court and he was sentenced<br />

to an <strong>18</strong>-month community<br />

corrections order.<br />

In accordance with the NRL<br />

breach notice, Brown was issued<br />

a seven-match suspension and<br />

a $40,000 fine, of which $20,000<br />

was suspended.<br />

That suspension includes the<br />

three matches already served<br />

in accordance with the NRL’s<br />

No Fault Stand Down and the<br />

matches that took place against<br />

the New Zealand Warriors and<br />

Gold Coast Titans, meaning he<br />

will be eligible to return to play in<br />

Round 23.<br />

Taking into account the<br />

sanctions by the NRL, the Eels<br />

have also imposed an additional<br />

$20,000 fine, with proceeds to<br />

be provided to a charity agreed<br />

between Brown and the Club.<br />

Additionally, the NRL and club<br />

have agreed on a Capability Plan<br />

to reflect the seriousness of what<br />

took place and ensure Brown<br />

“becomes a better person”.<br />

He has been directed to undertake<br />

a comprehensive alcohol<br />

management plan, speak to the<br />

Club’s Elite Pathways players,<br />

seek ongoing professional<br />

counselling, and participate in<br />

re-engagement initiatives with<br />

the club’s stakeholders.<br />

In a statement, <strong>Parra</strong>matta Eels<br />

CEO Jim Sarantinos said Brown<br />

has accepted full responsibility<br />

for his behaviour and is genuinely<br />

remorseful for the impact his<br />

actions have had.<br />

“Dylan has displayed genuine<br />

remorse for his actions towards<br />

the victim, and the impact on<br />

his family, his network, the club<br />

and the game. He has a strong<br />

awareness of the severity of what<br />

has occurred and is extremely<br />

disappointed in his actions,” he<br />

said.<br />

“The sanctions and initiatives<br />

that the NRL and the club have<br />

taken not only reflect the seriousness<br />

of what took place but<br />

also reflects the importance our<br />

club places on its values, whilst<br />

also ensuring that we provide the<br />

support to help Dylan become a<br />

better person moving forward.”<br />

When Brown fronted the media<br />

last week, he said his actions<br />

“weren’t good enough” and<br />

that he’s learnt a lot about how<br />

his off-field decisions effect his<br />

life and career, as well as other<br />

people.<br />

“It’s not acceptable, it’s not<br />

something I’m proud of, it doesn’t<br />

uphold my values and it’s embarrassing,”<br />

he said.<br />

“I’m a role model to a lot of<br />

people, including my family, and<br />

I’ve let them down.<br />

“I was apologetic, and I still<br />

am… the punishment is fair…<br />

I’ve got a mum and a sister and<br />

that’s why I got emotional before,<br />

because if something happened<br />

to them, I wouldn’t be happy.”<br />

Brown will be eligible for selection<br />

and participation in the NRL<br />

competition on August 6 when<br />

the Eels play the Dragons.<br />

We’re ready to cheer for Matildas<br />

ELLIE BUSBY<br />

It’s Matilda Mania in<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta, as the city gets<br />

ready for the Women’s World<br />

Cup to finally begin.<br />

One of the world’s biggest sporting<br />

tournaments is almost here, with the<br />

Matildas kicking off their campaign<br />

in a match against the Republic of<br />

Ireland on <strong>July</strong> 20 at Sydney Olympic<br />

Park’s own Stadium Australia.<br />

It’s a game that is predicted to see<br />

a crowd of more than 80,000 fans,<br />

with plenty more expected to tune<br />

in at one of the many live sites across<br />

the state.<br />

Here in <strong>Parra</strong>matta, football fever<br />

will officially take over <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

Square where a free live site will<br />

screen virtually all the matches<br />

across 31 days, including all the<br />

Matilda games, the Quarter Finals,<br />

the Semi-Finals and, of course, the<br />

Grand Final.<br />

A live site launch party will start<br />

at 4pm, Thursday, allowing fans<br />

to see the very first games of the<br />

tournament.<br />

A DJ will get the party going and<br />

there’ll be plenty of giveaways,<br />

as well as a line-up of footballers<br />

showing off their skills.<br />

City of <strong>Parra</strong>matta Lord Mayor<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta Square will host a free live site for the Women’s World Cup.<br />

Sameer Pandey said the live site in<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta Square will bring fans<br />

together to cheer on the world’s<br />

best teams, watch live-streamed<br />

matches on the big screen and put<br />

their own football skills to the test.<br />

“We’re turning <strong>Parra</strong>matta Square<br />

into one of the biggest live sites in<br />

Sydney for the World Cup and the<br />

best spot for families to enjoy all<br />

the action and atmosphere for free,”<br />

Pandey said.<br />

“<strong>Parra</strong>matta is a global city which<br />

makes it the perfect place for fans to<br />

watch this global event.”<br />

The Western Sydney Wanderers<br />

will also be hosting activities and<br />

giveaways at <strong>Parra</strong>matta Square<br />

throughout the competition, with<br />

Matildas midfielder Emily van<br />

Egmond as the official ambassador<br />

for <strong>Parra</strong>matta’s live site.<br />

A high-walled, octagonal Panna<br />

football cage at the live site will also<br />

give fans a chance to show off their<br />

footwork or have a 1v1 showdown<br />

with a friend, with foosball tables<br />

also available.<br />

Pandey said the live site will be a<br />

huge boost for the city, drawing in<br />

football fans from near and far.<br />

“We look forward to welcoming<br />

thousands of people to <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

to watch the action with us in<br />

Sydney’s biggest loungeroom,” he<br />

added.<br />

“Pick yourself up some world-class<br />

food from one of the great eateries<br />

nearby before settling in to watch an<br />

incredible game of football.”<br />

The live site has been brought<br />

together in partnership with<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta Square, Optus and<br />

Western Sydney Wanderers FC.<br />
