Steels Creek Landcare Group: Queensland Fruit Fly notification

The Queensland Fruit Fly regional coordinator has confirmed QFF larvae in Yarra Glen on 2nd March. There has also been a report of QFF in Kinglake.  An extract from the email notification is as follows;

It is essential that everyone is baiting (repeatedly each week), trapping, and actively treating and dealing with waste fruit to prevent this pest from establishing in the region.  In this case there is a significant volume of self sown peaches which have been allowed to grow and fruit in the resident’s front and back yard.  This is a typical residential garden block, with one of everything growing (citrus, apples, stone fruits, tomatoes, feijoas). In this case – netting is added to the list of advice due to the residential nature of the detection site. Residents are encouraged to harvest what they can now and net the rest of the fruit coming on, to save them, as well as implement baiting and trapping”

Steels Creek Grapevine – 6th October 2021

#steelscreek
#screekylife
Facebook

Final information session – Tonight at 7pm. Expressions of interest close 5pm October 7th (tomorrow)

Regional Community Recovery Committees – for Community-led Pandemic & Storm Recovery

Have you heard about community-led recovery? Would you like to influence how $200,000 in spent in your community? You are invited to be part of an innovative and dynamic Committee which will shape community recovery.

Yarra Ranges Council is encouraging community-minded individuals to put up their hand to be a part of one of four Regional Community Recovery Committees (RCRC), to support their local communities in recovering from the social, economic and environmental impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and storm event.

We encourage anyone who is passionate, interested and wants to take part in community led recovery to nominate through the Expression of Interest process..

Why are RCRCs being set up?

Recovery from emergencies is most effective when the communities that are directly affected, lead it. People impacted by emergencies are in the best position to understand their community’s priorities for ongoing recovery.

What is a Regional Community Recovery Committee?

RCRCs will give all parts of the community a voice in the recovery process. RCRCs will be inclusive and be made up of diverse membership. The four RCRCs will each include up of 12 people who represent the demographics of their region – the Hills, Urban, Valley and Upper Yarra and will be committed to community, economic and environmental recovery.

How will RCRCs work?

Each RCRC will:

  • gather information about community strengths;
  • identify the top community recovery priorities;
  • create a Community Led Recovery Plan;
  • recommend community-led recovery projects for funding.

The final Information session will be held via Zoom on Wednesday 6 October at 7pm. Go to the Shaping Yarra Ranges page to join.

Expression of Interest close 5pm Thursday 7 October

Albie Leckie memories: Thank you, Ms Robbie Schuurman for sharing 

To the Grapevine

Thank you so much for posting a notice about the passing of Albie Leckie.  I would not have known otherwise.
I used to play tennis against Albie at your lovely little clubrooms, and was always amazed at his athleticism and guile on the tennis courts, and his wit.  He was a funny man, with a cheeky smile and always seemed to be happy. As I am a decade or two younger than Albie, I found it annoying that he was so difficult to beat.
I remember the yummy afternoon teas, with people all squished into the clubrooms, and thought it one of the friendliest tennis clubs around, and with such beautiful surroundings.
I no longer play tennis due to knees and ankles, and now play golf, but I still visit Healesville and Yarra Glen, and have very fond memories of the lovely people of Steels Creek Tennis Club, and Albie especially.

Warm regards
Ms Robbie  Schuurman
ex Healesville Tennis Club player

Newspaper Delivery – Are you interested?

Newsworthy!  The newsagent in Yarra Glen said they would consider a delivery of the weekend newspapers to our valley community.  A morning meander to the road mail box to collect your paper, to be poured over while enjoying with your morning beverage of choice!

Cost would be the cost of the papers plus a small delivery fee – Saturday Age ($4.60) plus Weekend Australian ($4.50) = about $10 in our hot little Creekian Hands.  In order for this to become a possibility, there would need to be at least 5 house holds to commit to this service.

If you are interested, please contact Erin-Marie on 0407 353 379 or erinmarieoneill@gmail.com

Steels Creek Tennis Club Christmas in July Dinner – Postponed to July 30th!

Not surprisingly, the Christmas in July dinner, that was to be held this Friday (23rd July), has been postponed. The new proposed date is 30th July (still a “Christmas in July”!).  This assumes the lockdown is lifted and the Restaurant patron limits can be adhered to.  If you are unable to attend now, due to the change in date, please contact Mark Newell to cancel.

The Grapevine

Don’t forget to email the grapevine if you have notices you wish to publish. We are a little thin on the ground for content and it would be great to have some different snippets to put in each issue……… otherwise we shall be reduced to Dad jokes! (LOL!)

Please come along and support the community by nominating for a commitee position. Even if you only have a few hours to offer throughout the entire year, your contribution is still worthwhile. We are currently looking for someone to take over the secretary role but you can nominate for any role at all.

Key Call – please let Maree Rothwell know if you have keys to the centre
Due to a number of recent issues with other council buildings across the region, the Shire has requested that we maintain an up-to-date registry of those who have keys to the centre. If you have a key in your possession, can you please contact Maree Rothwell at maree@rothwells.com.au or on 0414-278-649. The committee is also considering upgrading the existing lock system to facilitate a dual key/pin code system. That will mean you could continue to use a traditional key or simply access the centre with a four digit access code. If you have any recommendations or concerns about implementing a new access system, please let us know at thegrapevine@steelscreek.vic.au. For an example of the current line of thinking, please take a look at this unit from Bunnings. We’re open to any and all suggestions though before changing anything over.

Steels Creek Grapevine – 29th July 2020 (ISO 2.0 Edition)

#steelscreek
#screekylife

Steels Creek Community Centre (NOT YET) Reopening – IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The committee is still monitoring the situation with both the Victorian State Government and the Yarra Ranges Shire Council to determine safe and appropriate use of the centre following the current lockdown order. Until we have some clarity about the conditions under which we can re-open the centre for general community use, the centre will have to remain closed.

Deadline for Articles for the Jolly Thing (July 31st)
Share your lockdown 2.0 stories and updates with us! We’re preparing the next edition of the Jolly Thing. Fear not the silly typos, grammar mistakes, relevance of your story or quality of your pics… that’s our job. We’d love to hear from you. The next edition will cover the spring months. How is lockdown 2.0? What’s on the horizon? A few words, maybe a photo. Easy. Steels Creek Community Groups and regular contributors, this is a perfect time to send us your updates too. They are they backbone of The Jolly Thing and the community. Please email your piece to: scjollything@gmail.com by July 31 2020. We look forward to hearing from you – Morgan and Sal (Editors)

Resources for Isolation Resiliance
The Yarra Ranges Shire has collected a number of resources for community members and their families to help survive – and thrive – during the pandemic lockdown. You can find out more information on the Shire’s website or information on some of the specific programs here – https://steelscreek.vic.au/community-resources-for-pandemic-isolation/

New State Government Funding for Community Initiatives
The Victorian Government is helping communities to stay connected during the coronavirus pandemic through a new grants program to support local initiatives. Applications for the “Let’s Stay Connected Fund” are now open for grants available for community organisations, local government bodies, incorporated not-for-profits and industry groups. Grants of between $5,000 and $200,000 are available to support innovative, community-based initiatives that build connection, reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation and that can be implemented quickly – providing much-needed support across the state. The $1.3 million fund could potentially help community groups continue to operate by adapting the way they deliver programs or events, including through online forums. Other possibilities include support for communities to improve their digital skills and access online communication channels, or new ways for people to continue volunteering within their communities while maintaining physical distancing requirements. MORE INFO: https://steelscreek.vic.au/new-support-for-victorian-communities-to-stay-connected/

Steels Creek Grapevine – 30th May 2020

#steelscreek
#screekylife

Steels Creek Community Centre Reopening – IMPORTANT INFORMATION
There are still some concerns about when to safely re-open the community centre for community use. The committee is currently monitoring the situation with both the Victorian State Government and the Yarra Ranges Shire Council. Once we have some clarity about conditions under which we can re-open the centre for general community use, we will issue an update. Though plans for re-opening were scheduled for Monday 1st June, this may not now be the case. Regardless, our use of the centre will require some operational changes to comply with both regulations and health and saftey best practices. One of the conditions will likely be recording the names and contact details of anyone who uses or visits the centre. Again, once we have some clarity about re-opening dates and full conditions of use, we will notify the community via the Grapevine, the Steels Creek Community Facebook page and the next edition of the Jolly Thing.

Steels Creek Community Centre Renovations and Maintenance
The restumping works at the community centre have been completed!! This is great news, and it was great for the works to be done whilst the centre has been in lockdown. In other good news, the centre has also been repainted internally. We have also had a gardener working at the centre to do some clearing and tidying up, ready for the centre to be re-opened. It will be a great to have the centre looking all fresh when everyone returns! Please contact myself or Keith Montell if you have any questions regarding the works at the community centre. Take care Screekians. Maree Rothwell (President SCCC), Mobile:  +61 414-278-649, Email: maree@rothwells.com.au

Surplus (Historic) Paint for Sale
While we’ve all been in lockdown, the community centre has been having a makeover. The renovations have been progessing well and are almost complete. As a result, the SCCC has surplus paint for sale at $10 per can:

  • 4 litres Interior “Barrista white” ( centre wall colour)
  • 4 litres of exterior : “Charcoal Grey”
  • 5 litres approx. Exterior “Cream”
  • 10 litres “Ceiling White”

Take a bit of history with you by buying the surplus paint of a local historic building. Please contact Keith Montell at : k.montell44@gmail.com

Deadline for Articles for the Jolly Thing (May 31st)
Share your lockdown stories and un-lockdown plans with us! The editors are preparing the next edition of the Jolly Thing.  Fear not the silly typos, grammar mistakes, relevance of your story or quality of your pics… that’s the job of our wonderfully talented editors. Submissions close May 31st. Please submit articles and/or photos to scjollything@gmail.com

Tennis Courts Open for Play
The Steels Creek Tennis Club is now open for business again, but with restrictions on the number of players who can attend. The full “Return to Tennis Policy” for the tennis club is available as a PDF download from the web site. In a nutshell; Council has not allowed the use of the club rooms and toilets yet. The courts are available for use by members and their guests, but we must know who is using them and when. Prior to use, the member must complete the Booking Form (also available from the web site) and submit it to the Secretary. For now, Lindy Montell’s Monday ladies and the Sunday afternoon socials are the only scheduled uses. We’ll be working on the Friday family nights when state of emergency restriction allow. “Senior” and “Family” members may use the courts by booking.

Tennis Club Membership Fees
Also, to encourage more use by the community, most membership fees are being reduced for the coming membership year starting 1 July 2020. Family memberships will be $90, Senior memberships will be $35, Junior memberships $20 and Social memberships still $10. The membership year runs through June 30. To play on the courts, you must be a Family, Senior, or Junior member, except for Open Days. To have a court key, you must be a Family or Senior member. Thank you for your continued support.

Steels Creek Grapevine – 28th April 2020

#steelscreek
#screekylife

Help keep our children safe – please drive slowly 
Though we’re all in lockdown, excercise is one of the legitimate reasons to be out and about. As children are largely being home schooled now, there are a lot more out there taking a break and enjoying some physical activity on a day to day basis – and at all times of the day (and even evenings/night). Please take care and drive more slowly in the area, as you never know when these children may be just around the next corner, or coming out a driveway.

Steels Creek Community Centre Renovations
The council funded renovation work on the community centre has begun and is now in full swing – and what great timing.

CANCELLED: Party in the Paddock (28th March)
Unfortunately, the planned party in the paddock will now not be going ahead due to the announcement made by the premier Daniel Andrews of a state lockdown. We are hoping to reschedule the event later this year if we are able to. Everyone stay safe and enjoy the time off during this time. Kind regards, Mark.

Community Support for Covid-19 Lockdown
In these very uncertain times, we are being told to bunker down and isolate ourselves as much as possible. Not everyone lives online though, so it’s important we don’t forget those around us who may need some extra assistance and more regular contact in the “real world”. We still have the ability to call friends and neighbours via that antique piece of technology installed on our smart devices – the telephone.

promised to another girl at his father’s mosque. He wants to be the great doctor
that the community expects him to be, but he doesn’t get the marks. Above all, he

about his academic achievements, and then his quest to please his father spirals
out of control, with amusing and poignant consequences.
Cost is $10 per person plus $4 for the Centre. For those able to provide food it’s just $4 donation for the Centre. Please let Lindy Montell know if you are able to supply a main course, salad or dessert. (Lindy – 5965 2202)

This week, the Steels Creek BMX Bandits will be fundraising for the bushfire with items that they have made (with great enthusiasm and creativity) over the last week or so. Come and support fire affected communties by tapping into the same generosity of spirit that Steels Creek itself was the recipient of, more than 10 years ago.

Jolly Thing – Deadline for Submissions (27th Jan)
Go on. You know you want to! Submit an article in the next Jolly Thing and become immortalised in the Victorian State Library archives. Community contributions are always welcomed, no matter what the topic or how well you write. The idea is to capture the life and times of our current generation for reference by future generations to come. No topic is too big or too small. Our expert editoral team will masterfully help you craft a lasting written picture (or actual pictures are ok too!) that will interest and inspire for generations to come. Put the kids on a school holiday project and have them tell us all what they have been up to. Steels Creek Community Groups and regular contributors, this is a perfect time to send your updates too. These contributions are the backbone of The Jolly Thing and the community.

Christmas (Wed Dec 25th – all day….ALLLLLLLL DAYYYYYYY)
Just thought we would remind everyone, in case it hasn’t clicked yet: Christmas is just over three weeks away!! From everyone on the Steels Creek Community Centre Committee, have a “Happy Christmas!”
EDITORS NOTE: Yes, we do recognise that not everyone celebrates Christmas. We could have said “happy xmas” or just “happy holidays”. But xmas isn’t really a proper word and we know that some people don’t even get to take holidays, so what’s the point of saying that? Just be happy. No matter what day it is. Everyday. All day. Be happy.

Steels Creek Grapevine – 22nd Oct 2019

#steelscreek #screekylife

Yarra Valley Opera Festival (Oct 18-27)
The beautiful and historic Olinda Yarra is again the backdrop for this years Yarra Valley Opera Fesitval. Gertrude Opera have once again put on a diverse and entertaining program with something to suit everyone. Even if you don’t think opera is your “thing”, I’d encourage you to at least attend the family friendly and fun opera (sung in English) “The Enchanted Pig”. A delightful fairy-tale English opera with hilarious twists and turns. Oscar-winning costume designer Tim Chappel and international stage director Gale Edwards AM deliver a heartwarming and sumptuous Australian premiere of a London & New York hit. Ravishing tunes and a story for all ages. MORE INFO & TICKETS:  https://www.gertrudeopera.com.au

Feedback on Preparedness for Emergencies
One of the roles of Council is to support groups that have an interest in Emergency Management. Sometimes they are a group that solely look at this, or is a bit of an offshoot of an existing group. They all look very different. For example some create plans for the whole township while others run a community forum a few times a year, and everything in between. It all depends on the community and their interests/needs. Do you have any insights, feedback or preferences for Council on how they can help communitities plan for emergencies? Contact Kelly Castelletti, Community Emergency Resilience Officer on 03 9294 6764 / 0447 554 869 or at k.castelletti@yarraranges.vic.gov.au

Cyber warning!
While we’re not here to be your technical helpdesk, it’s important to call out the significant rise in the frequency and sophistication of fraudulent emails. These will often come through (looking very official!) from your bank, Telstra, energy companies, the government and other sources. They sometimes look INCREDIBLY real! Most follow this similar format and message – “Action Required. Your access has been temporarily disabled for identity check, it can be activated once you verify the details linked with your account. This step is a part of our online-security monitoring which helps in keeping data up-to-date by updating user’s information into its latest form. Please click on the button below to enable your access.”
*** DO NOT CLICK THE BUTTON ***

If in any doubt, ignore the email and contact the company directly.

INTERRUPTION TO COMMUNITY CENTRE SERVICES (Oct 14th-31st)
We are incredibly lucky to have the old Steels Creek school house (number 2725) to be used as a community hub. The building operated as a school house from 1886 until 1992 and has survived at least two major bushfires in its illustrious life. The council maintains the structure of the building with the Steels Creek community centre committee members and volunteers maintaining much of the internals, the facilities, and the surrounding grounds. The building is being restumped during October to help protect this valuable comunity asset.  Access to center will be through the new extension only. There will be no access to the old school house throughout the project, including the kitchen. Please take this into account for all upcoming community events throughout the latter part of October. If you’re interested in finding out more about the history of the school house, there is some information in a booklet at the centre or you can contact the Yarra Glen and District Historical Society.

#steelscreek #screekylife

The Steels Creek art group will be participating in the open studios again this year on the 12th and 13th of October from 10am to 5pm. Please come along and see working artists and lots of varied and lovely art, most of which will be for sale! For more information call Glenda 0407369144.

Steels Creek Community Market (Sat 12th Oct, 10am)
Saturday Morning Market is a perfect time to pick up some eggs, veggies, jams and preserves, freshly baked goodies and home-made goats cheese. Enjoy a cuppa, fresh scones and catching up on the Valley’s news. Need we say more? See you there. 2nd and 4th Saturday.

Yarra Glen Art Show AGM (Friday 18th October, 5.15pm )
The Living and Learning Centre. Open to all to attend, to nominate for the committee and to discuss the future of the Show. More info call Sharon Rowell on 0403 196 699

HEWI’s 30th Celebration (Sunday October 20)
Healesville Environment Watch Inc (aka HEWI) will be celebrating 30 years of ‘protecting and enhancing our local and global environment’ and we invite the Steels Creek community as members and friends at this event. Over the years we have represented the Ward of Ryrie and the Steels Creek membership provided dynamic advocates and activity leaders for Ecological courses and orchid discovery walks, amongst other advocacy. Full details in the next edition of TJT. Healesville Environment Watch Inc  remains a strong advocacy group with annual activities and facilitated events. Please email Maureen: hewisec@bigpond.com with any queries.

INTERRUPTION TO COMMUNITY CENTRE SERVICES (Oct 14th-31st)
We are incredibly lucky to have the old Steels Creek school house (number 2725) to be used as a community hub. The building operated as a school house from 1886 until 1992 and has survived at least two major bushfires in its illustrious life. The council maintains the structure of the building with the Steels Creek community centre committee members and volunteers maintaining much of the internals, the facilities, and the surrounding grounds. The building is being restumped during October to help protect this valuable comunity asset.  Access to center will be through the new extension only. There will be no access to the old school house throughout the project, including the kitchen. Please take this into account for all upcoming community events throughout the latter part of October. If you’re interested in finding out more about the history of the school house, there is some information in a booklet at the centre or you can contact the Yarra Glen and District Historical Society.

Steels Creek Grapevine – 26th July 2019 [CORRECTION]

#steelscreek #screekylife

CORRECTION: Steels Creek “Jolly Thing” – Deadline for Submissions (27th July)
Apologies for the mistake with this article in the most recent Grapevine. This should have referred to the deadline for the “Jolly Thing”, not “Grapevine”. Hence the inclusion of the notice below of the handover to a new editor… 🙂

I know it’s a [very] late [now] reminder – but sometimes your best work is produced under pressure, right? [clearly this is not the case, given the above!] The deadline for submissions to the next edition of the Jolly Thing is this Saturday 27th July. Put your brain into panic mode and just get it done. You’ll be amazed how your creative side is just bursting to get out and express itself. Or maybe it’s just a short and sweet observation of daily life in the valley. Whatever. Any content – no matter how small or inconsequential for you, will provide historical insights well into the future. Submit your materials (including photos, artworks etc) to scjollything@gmail.com.

Steels CReek Grapevine – 13th April 2019

#steelscreek

EVENT: An Ecologists view on Permaculture and Landcare (Sun 14th April, 11:30am)
Your Piece in the Puzzle. Often, we approach land management and permaculture from a viewpoint within our fences and from our hopes and aspirations. From this viewpoint, we then consider the role of nature only as far as it affects our ability to achieve our vision. In this engaging chat, we will consider things from a different perspective: we will
look at our land as a single piece in a huge puzzle that is full of complex, fascinating
and dynamic interactions. Together we will explore how shifting our perspective to
look at our land as a piece in a puzzle will help us better care for our environment
Ask not what nature can do for you but what you can do for nature. How can we be
‘ outrospective’?  Dr Melanie Ylctgbngu is a passionate ecologist who has been walking in the bush since she graduated from crawling. Nature is not an optional extra, it a life support system, and Melanie finds joy in sharing the lessons that nature has to teach us, to help us be better organisms in this shared world. As a conservationist, ecologist and
permie she brings a holistic view to inspire us to think differently.

Date: Sunday 14th April
Time: 11.30 am Bring md for a shared lunch. Coffee and tea provided.
Talk: 1:00 pm
Finish: 3.00 pm
Location: Brockspur Eco Farm, 57 Harvey Road, Steels Creek

Please travel from Steels Creek Road direction as some G P.S. systems will lead  you astray. If you get lost, please call on 0412349146  steelscreeklandcare@gmail.com

S4Reel Film Club “BEKAS” (Fri 15th Mar, from 6pm)
MOVIE NOW ANNOUNCED! We look forward to you joining us for guaranteed laughs; suspense; and drama together with fine food; good company and a movie in our Gold Class venue. Screening on Friday 15th March: BEKAS (2012).

“Bekas” means ’brother’ in Iraqi. This film, set in Iraq, during the early 90’s in the Saddam regime tells the story of two homeless brothers. When they see “Superman” through a hole in a cinema wall they decide to go to America to live with him. They have no money; passports; or any idea where America is but with luck and a donkey called Michael Jackson!
Sounds weird but it is a very enjoyable film and the acting of the two young boys is amazing. This is one you will talk about.

Cost is $10 per person including $4 for the Centre. For those able to provide food it’s just $3 donation for the Centre. Please let me know if you are able to supply a main course, salad or dessert. (Lindy – 5965 2202)

Steels Creek Grapevine – 26th Feb 2019

HURRY! Final submission date for content for the commemorative edition of the Jolly Thing (27th Jan)
Don’t forget to put pen to paper, fingers to keyboards, voices to voice recognition software…or whatever other method you choose…to contribute something to the next special commemorative edition of the Jolly Thing. The upcoming edition will feature content related to the 10 year anniversary of Black Saturday. It’s well known that “milestone” events like these may evoke many mixed emotions. The process of writing and recounting events can be both traumatic – and therapeutic. Whatever your memories of, or before the fires, whatever your outlook and experiences have been since, or maybe it’s just your pride of being a ‘Screekian’ – all are worth capturing in the history of Steels Creek, via the Jolly Thing. For those that don’t yet know, the Jolly Thing (and the entire Steels Creek website at steelscreek.vic.au) are being archived in the State Archives for future generations. This is a chance to share some memories, feelings, observations, thoughts…even some hints and tips…not just to those in the community now, but well into the future.

We’d also encourage children (and young adults!) to contribute as well. This might be through artwork, stories, tributes – anything at all.

Steels Creek Tennis Club Open Day (27th Jan, 12:00pm)
We will have an Open Day, with BBQ lunch at midday, open tennis with prizes and give-aways for the kids, as well as a good social time for all. Sunday, 27 January is the date. Come down for a social hit of tennis and a free BBQ, BYO drinks – please let us know if you are coming for catering purposes.

Steels Creek Landcare Group Bunnings BBQ Fundraiser (Sat, 5th Jan)
Steels Creek has been fortunate enough to be allocated not one but two dates for a Bunnings Sausage sizzle at Chirnside Park. The first is a Landcare fundraiser on Saturday 5th January and the 2nd is for the Community Centre on Sunday 13th January. These are great ways to raise much needed funds for our groups but we can’t do it without community help. Angie Lloyd is organising both so if you can spare a couple of hours on either date please contact her at grimesangie@yahoo.com.au. It is a fun day and not too hard, you don’t need to be a member of either group and you will not be expected to stay all day (just a 2 hour time slot). If you think you can, please put it in your diary and send Angie an email.
EDITORS NOTE: A huge, huge thank you to Angie for organising these incredibly valuable events!!

Steels Creek Grapevine – 15th Nov 2018

S4Reel Movie Night (16th Nov, 6:00pm)
Dinner from 6pm – Film Starts 7:30pm. We look forward to you joining us for guaranteed laughs; suspense; and drama together with fine food; good company and a movie in our Gold Class venue. This last film of the year is a comedy and who knows the catering may be inspired but I will hire a bodyguard! Screening on Friday 16th November: “Who is Killing the Great Chefs Of Europe” (1989). Mystery abounds when it is discovered that, one by one, the greatest Chefs in Europe are being killed. The intriguing part of the murders is that each chef is killed in the same manner that their own special dish is prepared in. Food critics and the (many) self-proclaimed greatest Chefs in Europe demand the mystery be solved. Starring in this black comedy are George Segal; Jacqueline Bisset; and the marvellous Robert Morley. Cost is $10 per person plus $4 for the Centre. For those able to provide food it’s just $4 donation for the Centre. Please RSVP for catering purposes and please also let me know if you are able to supply a main course, salad or dessert. (Lindy – 5965 2202).

Black Saturday – 10 Year Anniversary Memorial Funding
The Steels Creek Community Centre Committee has recently been notified of an approved grant for funding to be used for commemorative activities for the 10-year anniversary of Black Saturday. The grant is for $5000 and will be used for a variety of activities including a wellness information session, a commemorative and history themed market day, a commemorative edition of the Jolly Thing (which will be included in the State archives), a new commemorative visitors book, and catering for several events – including two social woodfired pizza nights. There are obviously still very mixed feelings in the community about the 10 year anniversary, so the grant application tried to take all community feedback into consideration. Many thanks to everyone who contributed and responded to the earlier call-out for ideas. A particularly generous and heart-felt thank you to the president of the Steels Creek Community Centre committee, Maree Rothwell, for driving this project and helping us to secure the funding.

Black Saturday – 10 Year Anniversary Memorial
It’s coming up to 10 years since the devestating 2009 bushfires that affected so many of us S’Creekians. There’s many memorial activities planned around Victoria but, as a small community that was significantly impacted, Steels Creek has an opportunity to remember lives and properties lost, and to pay its respects to all involved in this tragic event, in the way it best sees fit. There are suggestions for some low key get togethers – on Thursday Feb 7th: a reflective walk to the memorial seat on old Kinglake road. Just a simple meet and walk together, weather conditions permitting. On the following market day (Saturday 9th) just a casual get-together with everyone bringing a plate of food – and some reflections and memories to share. The community has changed over the past 10 years with many new residents and others sadly moving on. Have your say about about what’s important for you – and your community – by emailing thegrapevine@steelscreek.vic.au and/or visit www.vic.gov.au/2009-bushfires.

On the following market day (Saturday 9th) just a casual get-together with everyone bringing a plate of food – and some reflections and memories to share. The community has changed over the past 10 years with many new residents and others sadly moving on. Have your say about about what’s important for you – and your community – by emailing thegrapevine@steelscreek.vic.au and/or visit www.vic.gov.au/2009-bushfires.

Steels Creek Grapevine – 26th September 2018

Increase in Steels Creek Community Centre Usage Fees
The Steels Creek Community Centre Committee recently held its AGM. One of the agenda items was to review the $3 per-person usage fee. As the centre receives no general funding from either the council or the state government, it relies entirely on all users paying a small fee to cover the (ever-increasing) operating costs. These are typically power, cleaning, and various consumables (use your imagination). The Committee agreed to increase the per-person, per-visit usage fee to $4 for all community events and casual hire to $60 for local groups (eg tennis club). The rationale? The Community Centre has been running at a loss for several years, so the committee decided to absorb the cost rises and use saved funds. However, we also need to keep a buffer on funds in the bank for any unforeseen expenses. It was agreed by the Committee to aim for a balanced budget. We know that any increase of cost is never easy for anybody. However, the Committee continues to pursue other funding options as well that will limit any future usage price rises.

The Yarra Glen & District Historical Society’s Annual Tetlow Talk (Sun 14th Oct, 2pm)
WHERE: McCoomb Room, Yarra Glen Memorial Hall
The speaker will be Irene Kearsey, historian and member of FROGS (Friends and Relations of Gulf Station). The topic is “Dickson or Dixon??…and who was he anyway?” Irene will talk about her research into this family who set up Gulf Station and lent their name to Dixons Creek. The Talk will be followed by a delicious afternoon tea.
All welcome – Please RSVP for catering purposes. Gold coin donation.
Further information: Helen Mann 0429 006 152 or Jill Sheffield 9730 1587 or – https://steelscreek.vic.au/the-yarra-glen-district-historical-societys-annual-tetlow-talk-sun-14th-oct-2pm/

SCCC Working Bee (Sat Oct 27th, 9am)
The 2018 Annual Flower Show is coming up (Sat 3rd Nov) and we need the community centre grounds in tip-top shape in preparation. Can you spare 30-60 minutes before the market on Saturday 27th Oct at 9am? Tasks involve weeding, pruning, brush cutting, re-oiling the picnic tables, and a general tidy up. Bring your own tools if it makes it easier – whipper snippers, weeding wands (i.e., the removal ones, not the poisoning types), gardening gloves (with hands inside preferably) and any other useful garden maintenance implements – all welcome!

Steels Creek Community Centre Market (Sat Oct 27th, 10am)
Come to the community centre with your lovely spring produce and trade with locals. Bring some friends and share some morning tea, some local stories, and have a quick/efficient natter with worthy conversationalists. Keep up to date with the local goings on – and avoid the awkward “I didn’t know that…” type conversations in the ‘Glen.

Steels Creek Garden Club Flower Show and Plant Sale (Sat 3rd Nov)
It’s on again! The annual flower show and plant sale is coming up fast. Get involved before, during, and after the event. More details to come. Contact Jill Hess, 0430 108 672

Black Saturday – 10 Year Anniversary Memorial
It’s coming up to 10 years since the devestating 2009 bushfires that affected so many of us S’Creekians. There’s many memorial activities planned around Victoria but, as a small community that was significantly impacted, Steels Creek has an opportunity to remember lives and properties lost, and to pay its respects to all involved in this tragic event, in the way it best sees fit. There are suggestions for some low key get togethers – on Thursday Feb 7th: a reflective walk to the memorial seat on old Kinglake road. Just a simple meet and walk together, weather conditions permitting. On the following market day (Saturday 9th) just a casual get-together with everyone bringing a plate of food – and some reflections and memories to share. The community has changed over the past 10 years with many new residents and others sadly moving on. Have your say about about what’s important for you – and your community – by emailing thegrapevine@steelscreek.vic.au and/or visit www.vic.gov.au/2009-bushfires.

Cost is $10 per person plus $3 for the Centre. For those able to provide food it’s just $3 donation for the Centre. Please RSVP for catering purposes and please also let me know if you are able to supply a main course, salad or dessert. (Lindy – 5965 2202).

Steels Creek Landcare – Volunteer Student Program
Do you need any help around your property? Volunteers are again available to assist landowners to undertake a range of tasks. Activities, which you might describe as “high volume low complexity”, have previously included tree planting, firewood stacking, fence removal, property tidy up, weed control plus a whole lot more. The current volunteers groups are made up of 8 to 10 students with 1 to 3 supervisors.
Basic tools, gloves and high visibility vests are supplied. Depending on the task/s to be undertaken, you may also need to organise appropriate tools yourself, e.g .wheelbarrows, shovels etc. We do ask that you also provide some light refreshment for the students if possible.
I would really like to build up a list of Steels Creek Landcare Members who are willing to have the volunteer students work on their property so that we can assist as many people as we can.
Billanook are coming out the week of September 17th and the week of November 19th.
Fairhills have just been out and are yet to confirm further visits.

Steels Creek Landcare – Volunteer Student Program
Do you need any help around your property? Volunteers are again available to assist landowners to undertake a range of tasks. Activities, which you might describe as “high volume low complexity”, have previously included tree planting, firewood stacking, fence removal, property tidy up, weed control plus a whole lot more. The current volunteers groups are made up of 8 to 10 students with 1 to 3 supervisors.
Basic tools, gloves and high visibility vests are supplied. Depending on the task/s to be undertaken, you may also need to organise appropriate tools yourself, e.g .wheelbarrows, shovels etc. We do ask that you also provide some light refreshment for the students if possible.
I would really like to build up a list of Steels Creek Landcare Members who are willing to have the volunteer students work on their property so that we can assist as many people as we can.
Billanook are coming out the week of September 17th and the week of November 19th.
Fairhills have just been out and are yet to confirm further visits.

Steels Creek Landcare Volunteer Co-ordinator.
