Number 1 playgroup
By Jessica Howard

St Andrews Playgroup is the 2017 Regional Community Playgroup of the Year.

The Bacchus Marsh playgroup was presented the prestigious accolade at Playgroup
Victorias annual awards held at the Melbourne Aquarium on Friday November 17.
The award refers to a community playgroup that holds five or more sessions and was
one of ten accolades acknowledging the work of playgroups across Victoria.
Sinead Halliday, from Playgroup Victoria, said only a small handful of playgroups run
five or more sessions per week.
It is no small feat, she said.
St Andrews provides great opportunities for play which greatly aids the development
of the children.
The playgroup has been running for 21 years and the positive momentum continues.
Over the past year, the playgroup has demonstrated a high level of care for the members
of the community and offers a nurturing environment that is hugely beneficial for all
St Andrews Playgroup coordinator, Cindy Sutton said the committee was rapt.
This was our first year applying for the awards and we saw the presentation night as
a good opportunity to see what other playgroups are doing and how we can improve
ourselves, she said.
We had absolutely no expectations, so the win came at a real shock.
Ms Sutton said the award was a great way to recognise the hours of volunteer time that
goes in to running a playgroup.
It is not an award for one person but an award for the whole playgroup; its for the
members that come every week and participate; the people who volunteer their time; and
the committee members who take on those committee roles and fundraise throughout
the year, while already being busy working or at home with the kids.
The award is also a fantastic way for us to get the message out there to people who may
like to join a playgroup but dont know what is available. We want the community to know Playgroup mums Jayne Oliver and Alissa Slatter with children (L-R) Leigh, Chloe, Owen and

Treemendous fundraiser By Jessica Howard

With the festive season fast approaching, two

local community groups are getting in the
spirit of Christmas.
Bacchus Marsh Rotary Club and SES will kick
off their annual Christmas Tree Drive on the
first weekend of December.
The drive commenced in 2016 and saw the sale
of 236 trees. Peter Ellerton, from the Rotary
Club of Bacchus Marsh, said he hoped to see
even more success this Christmas.
Last year we raised $3,000 for each club, he
The funds raised are put straight back into
the community. For Rotary, the money was
used to fund a number of our local community
projects including breakfast clubs at schools,
literacy programs, graffiti removal and other
youth services.
Jane Fraser, Bacchus Marsh SES Unit Officer
for Community Events, said the drive helped
keep the State Emergency Service in operation.
Last year we partnered with Rotary and it
was a great success, so we decided to run the
drive again, in order to keep giving back to the
community, she said.
The 2016 drive, alongside other annual
fundraisers, allowed SES volunteers to
purchase new motorbikes, trailers and a
lighting tower.
This years event will run on the first and
second weekends of December.
Ms Fraser said the project would commence at
7:30am at SES Headquarters.
We plan to run sales until 7pm or until sold
out. Last year we were sold out before 12pm.
The volunteer organisations will also provide
a pick-up and delivery service for an extra $10.
Bacchus Marsh SES Headquarters is located

a review of its grass mowing services. Residents are being given an opportunity to make a
submission to the draft Open Space Maintenance Management Plan and associated Mowing
Service Review, after Councillors resolved recently to exhibit the draft documents for public
The review of mowing services recommends the removal of 384 roadsides that currently
receive a bi-annual or annual mow. To offset this, an increase in amenity mowing across
small towns is also recommended, that will see frequencies increased and various township
entrances receive a regular amenity mowing service.
The Draft Open Space Maintenance Management Plan and associated Mowing Service Review
will be out for public consultation for 6 weeks. The documents are available on our website:

Connecting farmers with community

By Jessica Howard

The taste and aromas of Moorabools famous produce was brought to life
for another year as crowds of people flocked to the annual Strawberries
and Cherries Festival.
Local and out-of-town visitors enjoyed over 150 market stalls, food vans,
displays and an array of carnival rides.
The market, which ran from Young Street right through to the Gisborne
Road/Grant Street roundabout in Bacchus Marsh, was filled with homemade
goodies, novelties and gifts from local and surrounding businesses.
A stall hard to miss was Farming Moorabools, which included a
225-horsepower tractor sitting in the middle of the Main Street, outside the
Royal Hotel.
Balliang East farmer, Chris Sharkey provided the stall with the vehicle
following its popularity in 2016.
Children sat inside and took photos with the modern-day workhorse,
while also speaking to farmers directly about how they produce the food
we eat.
Farming Moorabool, a regional food producers networking group, also
teamed up with The Royal Hotel to help highlight regional produce
through a festival menu.
Fernleigh Park Lamb from Ballan and Peelman Fresh Produce from
Bacchus Marsh featured on the menu, which received rave reviews from
hotel patrons. Chris Sharkey and Scott Young from Farming Moorabool. Photos Jacinta Young Photography
The group also held a raffle and sold locally grown strawberries donated
by Naturipe Fruits.
All proceeds were donated back to the voluntary group to help further
develop educational initiatives.
President of Farming Moorabool, Scott Young said the festival helps bring
greater awareness of the importance of locally grown produce and the
farmers that make it happen.
Recent research conducted by the National Farmers Federation found 83
per cent of Australians felt their connection with farming was distant or
non-existent, he said.
This shows that proactive groups like Farming Moorabool have a vital
role to play in reconnecting consumers with the people who produce it for
Police estimated approximately 30,000 people attended the Strawberries
and Cherries Festival, which celebrates the start of a plentiful fruit season
in Moorabool.

A couples six-year nightmare continues after neighbours

erected stockyards just 12-metres from their back fence,
without a permit.
The issue went before a Council Development Assessment
Committee meeting when farmer Kevin Riddells lodged
a planning permit application to build a shearing shed on
his Bullarook property, seeking an exemption from the
requirement that it be more than 100-metres away from the
nearby river.
But as council officers found, only when they visited the
property, the permit application failed to include stockyards,
that he had built six years prior, and to date still do not have
a permit.
After the applicant applied for a shearing shed permit, a site
inspection found stock yards had been constructed. Stock
yards do not normally require a permit but in this case they
were within 100 metres of a waterway and a neighbouring
property, explained Rob Fillisch, councils Manager of
Statutory Planning and Community Safety.
On three occasions, Council requested the applicant
amend the application for the shearing shed to include the
stock yards, but the applicant refused, so Council made an
application to VCAT for an enforcement order to have the
stock yards removed.
The matter is still before VCAT, although the application for
Chris Lindorff chats to visitors on the nature walk. the shearing shed was refused at the DAC meeting.
It was at that meeting in October, Tim Scanlon, who owns
the house neighbouring the Riddells property, outlined his
living nightmare.
