What can five dollars buy these days? If you were one of the 50 adults and kids who came the first monthly Community Dinner at the Rec Reserve, you might be able to guess the answer. Munching away on dips and bikkies followed by spaghetti bolognaise, tender roast beef and lamb, spuds, pumpkin and veges, most of us were fairly chuffed at getting a bargain for our money. When the passion fruit pav and home made apple crumble arrived there was, immediately, just a little room left in our bulging tummies for something sweet. As it turns out, the apple crumble was an afterthought, but after a quick trip down Spring Valley to pick roadside apples, it soon became a reality. Not a doubt in our collective minds that this was five dollars well spent.!!! Dress to impress was the theme and we saw some stunning outfits on our bar and kitchen staff and on many of the community members who came to join us. Barmaid, Anna, wore an exquisite formal gown with heels guaranteed to be thrown off before the evening was more than 30 minutes old. Anna was perfectly complimented by her husband, John, looking most debonair in his suit and thongs. Mick Dunn, for the second time in the past 12 months donned a suit, while Sharon, gorgeous in pink and Trev in his glad rags looked very up-market. Some of us chose to keep our fashion flair less obvious, with a variety of trackies and workmens gear, mingling with the suits and gowns. Kareoke by Paul Hendry kept Gerri and the kids close to the microphone all evening. Community Dinners happen on the first Friday evening of each month. They are a great way to catch up with people and have an affordable meal and a few drinks in a family friendly atmosphere. Adults and teens can eat for $5 per head, Primary kids for $3 per head and tots and kinder kids free. The bar serves drinks at very reasonable prices and is open from 6pm till about 9.30. While we cannot guarantee full roast dinners each month, you can look forward to being served lashings of great home made food, all cooked by us here in Flowerdale. We recommend that you arrive to eat before 7.30, as the food disappears rather quickly.

Junior Youth Group has had a very exciting month, with the completion of the cubby house and I must say its looking great, also our camp to Harriettville from the 18th-20th March. A big thankyou goes to Gary for lending a hand with building the cubby with the children without him wed be still putting it together.

Camp Well what an experience. Rules were as follows: we are all friends and under no circumstances were electronic devices allowed to come. The friends part was accepted easily but ho my what do you mean no dss, Ipods etc? as we set off at 2.30pm Friday afternoon with two buses and my van34 children and 6 carers. In Seymour only one child was locked in the public toilet but swift thinking and no panic got that child out safe and sound (phew). We arrived late to a spaghetti bolognaise dinner which was very much needed then bed. A good nights sleep was needed for the next days busy schedule. 34 children were divided into 3 groups: The Yakkadees (Yak & Mr D), Rodreekez (Rod & Kerry) and the Tnneries (Tanya & Henry). Each group alternated three activities in the morning these were kayaking, ropes and flying fox. After a sausage roll and salad lunch we alternated another three activities in the afternoon these wer tubing, town walk and fishing/gold panning. Then a roast beef dinner. Overall everyone had a blast. I fell in on the kyak which caused alot of laughs. The flying fox, ropes were a hit and the tubing was a scream, even though the weather was warm the crystal clear river was freezing. After dinner we had a bonfire with marsh mellows and then bed. At 6.30am Sunday morning Rod woke everyone up for an hour bush walk. All the children were starving so some children devoured three serves of bacon and eggs and three serves of cereal. No food was left uneaten that morning. After breakfast it was time to pack up and load the buses and car. We had a bit of a showcase of talents with singing, dancing and piano being represented in style. Free time was had before some extraordinary running races. There was hop skip & jump, relay, funny walk relay, walking relay. After lunch we all boarded the buses for home. After the events of the day we were sure they would sleep all the way home but we werent so lucky. Each child and leader had a ball.

Now if your exhausted reading this imagine how exhausted we were but it was worth every minute of it. Special thanks go to our special leaders of camp, Henry Kielbaska, Ross Davis, Kerry & Yak Sullivan. Without them Rod and I wouldnt have been able to take as many children on camp. We are always seeking more leaders with working with children checks to assist us on excursions and camps. It is extremely rewarding to see the smiles on the all the childrens faces knowing we have touched their lives in a positive way. I have plenty of forms for Working with Children Checks so please see me if you require forms. Tanya Hallett Childrens Comments: I enjoyed camp.

Community celebrations for opening of new courts

FLOWERDALE Tennis Club is now planning a community event for early next month to celebrate the opening of its new courts at the Spring Valley Recreation Reserve. Flowerdale Tennis Club president Jeannette Kamar said work on the four new courts was expected to be complete late April, dependent on weather conditions. The $200,000-plus project includes four new synthetic grass courts with lighting, which will better provide for the clubs 70-plus members. It is hoped that the opening event on Saturday May 7 will include tennis activities, the Flowerdale Primary School choir, local musicians and a free community dinner with entertainment. Posters & flyers with more details will be distributed soon. For further information phone Jeannette on 5780 1520.

Temporary buildings and permits

We understand that some people may currently be living in temporary accommodation. There are three key dates you should be aware of with regard to the expiry of planning scheme exemptions:

Thursday, 31 March 2011 - Any temporary accommodation structure must be completed/built by this date. Please do not commence construction of any new temporary structure unless it can be completed by this date. Saturday, 31 March 2012 - Use of temporary structures for accommodation must cease by this date. You can apply for a planning permit for the ongoing use of your temporary structure as a dwelling beyond 31 March 2012. We recommend that you apply for this now as a planning permit can take many months to be resolved and there may be situations where a planning permit cannot be granted. Monday, 30 April 2012 - An application for a planning consent for a new dwelling to replace one destroyed by fire must be submitted to council by this date. If you do not submit your planning consent request by this date, you will be required to lodge a full planning permit application to construct a new dwelling, and will not be able to use the streamlined planning process.

If you have any enquiries regarding these deadlines or the planning approval process, please contact the Bushfire Response Planning Unit at the Department of Planning and Community Development on 9637 9553. With regard to existing structures without the correct building permits the rebuilding advisory service is aware of the issues you may be facing, and will work with you to help bring these structures into compliance with the relevant laws.

Your Health and Wellbeing From Community Health

Fishing for Healthier Options In a country where the economy was once said to ride on the sheeps back our obsession with red meat means we may be missing out on some tasty (and healthy) fishy alternatives. Researchers worldwide have discovered that eating fish regularly one or two serves weekly may reduce the risk of diseases ranging from childhood asthma to prostate cancer. Fish is low in fat, high in protein and an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. Health benefits of eating fish Regular consumption of fish can reduce the risk of various diseases and disorders. Selected research findings include: Asthma children who eat fish may be less likely to develop asthma. Cardiovascular disease eating fish every week reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke by reducing blood clots and inflammation, improving blood vessel elasticity, lowering blood pressure, lowering blood fats and boosting good cholesterol. Dementia elderly people who eat fish or seafood at least once a week may have a lower risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer's disease. Depression people who regularly eat fish have a lower incidence of depression (depression is linked to low levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the brain). Inflammatory conditions regular fish consumption may relieve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and autoimmune disease. Fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids are best The best source of omega-3 fatty acids is fish, rather than fish oil capsules. Oily fish are best for gaining the recommended daily amount of omega-3 fatty acids of 200600mg. Best examples of oily fish are fresh Atlantic salmon, smoked salmon, canned salmon, sardines and fresh rainbow trout. Foods enriched with omega-3 fatty acids such as margarine, eggs and bread do not offer anywhere near the same amount as oily fish does. Sustainable fish shopping All fishing has some impact, but some fish choices are far better than others. Some fish types may be overfished, associated with by-catch of birds or mammals (long lines used to catch swordfish also snare turtles, sharks, dolphins and seabirds), or may be killed in the process of commercial fishing for other species. The Australian Marine Conservation Society has a great guide to sustainable fish on their website - Source: Better Health Channel Yea Community Health - Yea & District Memorial Hospital phone 5736 0410 Alexandra Community Health - Alexandra District Hospital - 5772 0800

Mayors Chair
I have recently attended the Rural Summit of Mayors, councillors and CEOs. Various officers representing rural councils in Victoria covered topics ranging from Creating Global Enterprises in Rural towns to online marketing initiatives. The speakers all presented challenges they have encountered in the rural environment and the ways in which they turned these challenges into positives. One of the key topics covered was how to keep customers informed on the goings on within your individual businesses. As I listened to speaker after speaker talk about the importance of communication I thought about the current discussions taking place in the Kinglake Ranges Community about the Kinglake Flowerdale and Toolangi Draft Plan and Design Framework. Some individuals have made complaints that they were not aware of what the project was about or were not informed of the projects progress. The extensive consultation program was agreed to by the respective Community Recovery Committees and the Victorian Bushfire Reconstruction and Recovery Authority. This process commenced in May 2010 with forums held in Flowerdale, Kinglake and Toolangi and a general visioning day in Kinglake. Workshops were held and issue papers released widely for community comment. In October 2010 six more community discussions were held and the consultants attended in Kinglake over four weeks for people to meet with them. The consultants then met with local residents by appointment. The draft was then released for public comment and every person who had contacted the consultants was sent a letter and brochure informing them that the draft report was available for comment for eight weeks. The public comment deadline has been extended to allow those who felt the time period to be insufficient an extra two weeks to have their say. This project has been promoted through community email groups, council publications, councillor comments and community discussion since May 2010. If there is feeling that a stage of community engagement/communication may have been missed by the consultants I would be happy to receive any feedback to prevent it happening again. I believe we have put a program in place that has allowed the community many times to contribute and make comment. I look forward to seeing the final report and the community interaction in terms of developing that final report. I would encourage you to get your submissions in.

Councillor Comment Cr Bob Flowers, Redgate Ward

Murrindindi Shire Heritage Study The study includes the thematic environmental history of our shire, which was published in 2006. The history is not intended to be a complete social or political history of the municipality, but rather a summary of human use and impact upon the landscape in the years since the period of first contact between indigenous people and non-indigenous explorers and settlers during the middle of the 19th century. It is organised according to themes so as to provide a context to assist with the identification of heritage places in the shire. Further historical research, field visits and documentation of the heritage values of places of potential heritage significance have been carried out. The places have been classified into high, medium and low priority places for preservation. A citation has been written for each of the high priority places and a copy given to the owners. Murrindindi Shire Council has received a $30,000 grant from Heritage Victoria to complete the study. This work will include: mapping of all high priority places for the Heritage overlay a review of the Thematic Environmental History to include a section on the 2009 bushfires an archeological assessment of the railway reserves which will be used to provide recommendations for signage along the rail trail now being constructed recommendations for the protection of each property the removal of properties from the list that were destroyed in the fires assessment of three places the Glenburn Schoolhouse, St Lukes Church Yea and the Alexandra Racecourse and Recreation Reserve Our goal is to have the study to the point at which a planning scheme amendment can be commenced. The amendment is required to implement the recommendations of the study. It is anticipated that the work will be completed by September 2011. If you have not read the work done to date on this important study, why not borrow a copy from one of our local libraries?

Bushfire committee meets for last time
A significant chapter in the rebuilding and recovery process following the February 2009 bushfires was completed on Thursday (17 March) with the final meeting of the Murrindindi Bushfire Reconstruction and Recovery Committee (MBRRC) The Section 86 Committee was established on 22 April 2009 and has been a driving force in the rebuilding process and keeping communities informed through the support of Community Recovery Committees (CRCs). Committee Chairperson and Victorian Bushfire and Reconstruction and Recovery Authority representative Genevieve Overell said the committee should be proud of its achievements. The CRCs of Marysville and Triangle, Kinglake Ranges, Flowerdale, Toolangi and Castella, Melba and Strath Creek have worked extremely hard and under challenging conditions to provide the framework to guide the future success of their regions through their community recovery plans, Ms Overell said. We are at the stage where we can confidently say that the relationships developed between the CRCs, Murrindindi Shire Council and key government agencies will support the on-going rebuilding process. It has been a challenging and rewarding experience. Ms Overell thanked her committee representatives Councillors Sally Abbott Smith, Kevin Bellingham and John Walsh, Department of Human Services Pam Williams and Department of Planning and Community Development Arden Joseph. It has been a strong partnership that has assisted the CRCs in working to rebuild their respective communities, Ms Overell said. Murrindindi Shire Council Deputy Mayor John Walsh said the MBRRC was pivotal to the successes achieved through the collaborative approach between communities, elected representatives and key government departments. Council appreciates the strong relationships and clear lines of communication that were established through the Section 86 Committee, Cr Walsh said. I would like to thank our CRC members who have been outstanding in their dedication in what has been a most challenging time. The committee has also been supported by a very good chairperson and on behalf of Council I would like to thank Genevieve Overell for her guidance, support and friendship during the last two years.

Council supports new medical rooms for Kinglake

Murrindindi Shire Council will project manage the construction of new medical consulting rooms in Kinglake. Mayor Peter Beales said the rooms would be located on land immediately south of Councils Kinglake Office. We are working with the Department of Health in relation to this project and there is much work to be done before works commence. Our role will be managing the scoping, design and construction of the rooms and lease arrangements, Cr Beales said. Once complete, the building will become a Council asset, but more importantly a key asset for the Kinglake community. Cr Beales said the Department of Health was currently working with Rural Workforce Agency Victoria (RWAV), to finalise an agreement with a private medical practice to deliver GP medical services in Kinglake. We are confident that the negotiations will be successful and we can see a smooth transition as the current temporary medical practice in Kinglake is due to cease operations later this year, Cr Beales said.

Under the arrangements the department will meet the full cost of construction.
