 SCCC: Does anyone know who these items belong to???

With the start of a new year the committee is looking to have a bit of a summer clean at the centre.  While most items stored are self explanatory, there are three items of which we are not sure of the origins!  If you own one of the following items or know how the item came to be at the community centre, please call Maree Rothwell on 0414 278 649. 

  • A desk (stored in the office)
  • Plant trolley in the shed
  • Loom (sitting in the office) – see photo below

SC Social & Tennis Club: Open day Sunday 5th February @ 12noon

The tennis season officially starts this weekend and we invite all our members to come along for a bbq lunch followed by a social game of tennis.  If you are not a tennis player, you are still very welcome to come along for a social catch up – it is after all, a social & tennis club.  If you are new to the valley and wish to become a member, Sunday presents a perfect opportunity to join.

 SC Social & Tennis Club: Thursday social night

Great to see both courts in full use last Thursday night for social tennis.  We had a good couple of hours of hitting followed by a light beverage, to quench the thirst.  The on going plan is to meet every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.  Confirmation will be in the grapevine or you can call Kerry Guthrie on 0409 505 681.  Our next social night is 26th January @ 7:30pm

Yarra Range Council: Hard Rubbish Collection commencing Monday 23rd January

Its that time of the year again, when we put out unwanted items and then dodge those driving past checking out the “stuff”! Collection starts next Monday so have everything out on Sunday night (up to 3 cubic metres).  If you are not sure what can go out, please check the council website http://www.yarraranges.vic.gov.au for a comprehensive list of acceptable items for hard rubbish collection

Don’t forget if you have anything to sell, or messages to get out to the community, please email thegrapevine@steelscreek.vic.au for inclusion in the weekly newsletter.  The Grapevine comes out on a Tuesday evening – apologies for the lateness of this weeks issue.

SCCC: The Exchange Hub Saturday 14th January @ 10am

The Exchange Hub is back for 2023! It is held every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month between 10 and 11am at the community centre.  Join us this Saturday for the first meet of 2023. You can bring along items to sell, swap or giveaway, have a chat with other locals and about local events or simply enjoy a morning cuppa with fresh scones (only $2).  Let’s make it a great start to a great year!

 

 

 

 SC Social & Tennis Club: Thursday 12th @ 7:30pm & Monday 16th @ 8am

Come along to our first Thursday night social tennis this week, starting at 7:30pm.  It would be great to get 8 players along and have both courts in use, rotating around the playing pairs.  If you are interested or know of others who may be interested, please just come down to the courts at 7:30 or you can call Kerry Guthrie on 0409 505 681 if you have any queries.

Ladies social on Monday mornings started again this week , though it has been agreed to change the start time to 8am due to the warner weather.  We generally play for an hour and half, followed by and casual morning tea. 

Thank you to all who helped out with the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on Saturday.  We raised just under $2000 for the club which is fantastic. A big shout out to Graham and Angie Lloyd for  being the driving force behind the organisation of the day.

Don’t forget if you have anything to sell, or messages to get out to the community, please email thegrapevine@steelscreek.vic.au for inclusion in the weekly newsletter.  The Grapevine comes out on a Tuesday evening – apologies for the lateness of this weeks issue.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

The committee of the Steels Creek Community Centre send our best wishes for 2023 to all our valley residents and we look forward to seeing you at one of the many activities held at the Community Centre.

SCCC: The refurbishment of the car park has progressed very well and is almost finished. We are anticipating some lines will be marked for car parking but not sure when this will happen.  Hopefully all will be well for the first Exchange Hub on Saturday 14th January.

 SC Social & Tennis Club: Social tennis is about to start up again. 

Ladies social on Monday mornings starts on the 9th January @ 8:30am and Thursday night social play on 12th January @ 7:30pm.

If you are in Bunnings Chirnside on Saturday, come along to the sausage sizzle to support the Social & Tennis Club.  Funds raised go towards maintaining and developing the facilities of our little rural club. 

Yarra Glen Tennis Club:  For those junior players who would like some competition experience, please see the flyer for an Inter-club tournament this weekend.  Entries close tomorrow so there is still time to sign up.

Steels Creek Grapevine – 20th December 2022

SCCC: Some of you will have notice the works going on at the community centre.  The Yarra Ranges Council are in the process of resurfacing the driveway and carpark area.  We are unsure of when these works will be completed so at this stage access to the community centre will be restricted.  This is generally a quiet time on the community calendar so the impact on our groups who use the centre will be limited.  Rest assured we will let you know when it is back to business as usual and hopefully that will be in time for the first Exchange Hub for 2023.

SC Landcare 

Many thanks to all those residents who attended the AGM held back in November, enjoying the informative presentation and partaking of the delicious meal after the serious business was attended to.  Your landcare committee for the coming year is Andrew Guthrie (President), Peta Whitford (Vice President), Bruce Kellet (Secretary), Marcia Brosche (Treasurer), Genevieve Savani and Julie Cureton (committee members).

Social & Tennis Club: Christmas wind-up

It was great to see a crowd come along to the Christmas wind up on Sunday, where our long standing committee member Ed Bartosh was extolling the virtues of ‘Pickleball’.  A few of us gave it a go but the jury may be out if it will take off in steels Creek!! Plenty of chatter, laughs and hearty carol singing to see out 2022.  Looking forward to seeing you at the first Friday social for 2023.  Details will come at a later date.

The Steels Creek Community Centre Committee wish all our valley residents a very Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all in the new year.

There will be no issue of the Grapevine next week (27th December)

      I think we can proclaim “Womtober” Open Day an absolute success!  The weather held and the community came out in support of our inaugural open day. It was fabulous to see many of our residents at the community centre on Sunday, catching up with neighbours, meeting newbies to Steels Creek, learning about the centre or merely reacquainting themselves with what we have on offer in Steels Creek.  The SCCC would like to thank all our groups for being involved in some way or another. Your contribution in supporting this initiative was greatly appreciated and helped to cement a strong community spirit.  A big thank you as well to Maree Rothwell who was the driving force behind the day, with her vision and enthusiasm for the Steels Creek Community.  We would also like to thank Mange Management for coming along to help and advise on caring for sick wombats. 

      Social & Tennis Club: Thursday night social tennis 27th October

        LETS GET READY TO WOMBLE! 

        This is a wonderful community initiative by the Community Centre Committee and we are all looking forward to seeing you at the centre on Sunday.

        SC 4 Real: Friday 21st October from 6pm

        There are still a couple of spots available if you are keen to go to movie night this Friday.  The movie being shown is ‘Charade’ – a comedy mystery starring Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.  It is essential to RSVP for this event so please contact Lindy Montell on 5965 2202 or k.montell44@gmail.com

        Social & Tennis Club: AGM Sunday 13th November @ 12noon

        The AGM will be held at the Clubrooms, followed by a BBQ and the opportunity to have a hit of tennis if you so desire.  You must be a current financial senior or life member to vote.  We expect the meeting to last 20-30 minutes to cover the items in the agenda SCTC 2022 AGM Agenda  Should you wish to stand for Office or Committee, please complete the following Nomination or Proxy form.  Nomination Form 2022  SCTC ProxyForm22  Completed Nomination/Proxy Form can be emailed to the Secretary, Graham Lloyd, at sctc@yarraglen.com ahead of the meeting or you can nominate during the AGM.

        Yarra Valley Trail Project Update – the following information has been taken from an email, from the council.  For further information please refer to the council website or attend the information session (details below)

        There are two possible trail routes being proposed for the Yarra Valley Trail (Northern Loop). Both trail options have different environmental, social and economic benefits and impacts. Details of each route are below and the council is welcoming feedback in the following ways;

        • Attend a drop-in session with Cr McAllister and council officers at Yarra Glen Memorial Hall, 45 Bell St, on Saturday 29th October 2022 @2pm
        • Phone the council on 1300 368 333 (for questions and/or feedback)
        • Email p.goodison@yarraranges.vic.gov.au (for questions and/or feedback)

        OPTION ONE: Melbourne Water pipe track route

        This option features a 2km trail connecting the existing Steels Creek Trail to Gulf Road via the Melbourne Water Pipe track. The new trail would require an upgrade to the existing maintenance track, a new bridge crossing over Steels Creek, fencing, farm security measures, furniture and signage.  There will be views across the valley from a range of vantage points and an additional 2km of off road trail access.  A recent Arborist Report and Flora & Fauna Assessment indicate limited impacts on vegetation.  There are biosecurity concerns from an adjourning vineyard and potential risk to trail users from farm operations. Extensive fencing will be required along the trail boundary and farm crossings need to be finalised.  Privacy issues from adjoining properties have been highlighted to council.  This option is fully funded through the existing State Government grant.

        OPTION TWO: Steels Creek Trail and Gulf Road route

        This option offers a 2.9km trail requiring an upgrade to a 1.1km section of the existing Steels Creek Trail and a new 1.8km trail along Gulf Road.  This option is entirely located on Council managed road reserves.  The Steels Creek Trail upgrade works would involve trail widening, re-grading, several driveway crossings, retaining walls and drainage works.  The existing Steels Creek Trail between the pipe track and Gulf Road adjoins high quality bushland with hilltop views across the valley.  In parts, this trail is steeper and narrower (to 2m wide) to avoid negative vegetation removal.  The new trail section on Gulf Road will require reconstruction of road drainage, road crossings and a new footbridge over Steels Creek.  A new trail along a 900m length of middle section of Gulf Road will require a path to be constructed adjacent to property fence lines, with drainage works to move the table drain closer to the road edge and increasing the steepness of the road shoulder.  There are no known biosecurity or farm operations implications, with limited fencing required.  The estimated cost of works for this option is higher than option one, therefore further funding would be required for option two to proceed.

        Bookclub movie night: Wednesday 26th October @ 7pm at the SC Community Centre

        One of the local book groups is holding a movie night instead of a book discussion and are warmly inviting others to come along.  The movie is ‘Belfast’ – a coming of age drama written by Kenneth Branagh. The cost is $5 (community centre fee) and it is BYO food and refreshments.

        Save the Date!!”Womtober” in Steels Creek! Celebrating our community & wombats.  Sunday 23rd October 10am to 2pm

        With the challenges of the past couple of years, our sense of community has been somewhat eroded.  The committee of the SCCC are looking to revive our valley community by introducing new residents to the groups, facilities and the opportunities the community centre provided, as well as welcoming back our longer-term valley residents.

        And so “Womtober has been born.  An open day at the community centre where we invite our residents to drop by and catch up with others that live in the valley.

        • Your experience with sightings, damage and learnings about actions taken to minimise damage.
        • Your interest in participating as a community group to reduce the feral deer population.

        It will be followed up with the survey results, further information, webinars on Feral Deer Scan and an invitation to participate in a community wide program to address feral deer in our wonderful part of the world.

This long running book group meets every 3rd Tuesday of the month, for a cuppa, cake, company and some lively discussion on books sets provided by the local library.  Our lovely co-ordinator is Julie Riddel (0422 424 694) and she would love to hear from you, if you are interested in joining. The book club is limited to 10 members (based purely on the number of books provided by the library) however, if there is enough interest, a second group can easily be formed, so please do not be shy, in contacting Julie.

        Steels Creek Grapevine – 16th August 2022

        #steelscreek
        #screekylife
        Facebook

        Greetings from sunny Gold Coast! The wet dreary weather got too much for this editor so she took the only responsible action and headed north, if only for a few days……..

        Community Centre Update

        It is with reluctance that the SCCC Committee have decided to increase the member fee to $5 from the 1st of October. It has been many years since there has been an increase and over the last couple of years we have absorbed a $300 Council annual lease charge, $220 pa insurance cost as well as similar increases in energy costs and general maintenance.  As a result, in the last financial year, the Centre only just managed to cover expenses.  If anyone is really disadvantaged by this increase, please discuss with your group convenor to see if they can assist.

        The Jolly Thing

        As many of you are aware publication of the Jolly Thing is currently on hold.  Our exceptional editors put down their biros at the end of 2021, after many years of producing a fabulous local newsletter. It would be wonderful if there is someone (or someones) who would be willing to get our little publication up and going once again.  It does not have to be in the exact same format – you may have some ideas on how to do it differently.  So ponder this over, my fellow SCreekians, and contact Maree Rothwell (maree@rothwells.com.au) or Kerry Guthrie (kmguthrie1994@yahoo.com) if this little project tickles your fancy and you wish to discuss further.

        Steels Creek Community Centre AGM: Thursday 8th September @ 7:30pm
        This serves as the notice for the upcoming AGM for the SCCC.  The meeting will be held at the community centre, starting at 7:30 and it would be great to see members of our community come along in support of the committee.  If you are interested in being part of the committee, please email Maree Rothwell at maree@rothwells.com.au  Equally, if you are not up for a committee position, you are still very welcome to attend.
        SC Landcare: Membership sign up/renewal due now

        What’s on in the valley! 

        Apologies for the slight delay in this issue of the Grapevine. Hope the high winds last night did not cause any problems and no-one had any property damage. Many thanks to the eagle eyed subscriber who picked up this typo –  “at present, the publican of The Jolly Thing”.  It should read “at present, the publication of The Jolly Thing” – sorry folks, we do not have our very own pub in the valley!!

        SC Tennis & Social Club: Friday 5th August @ 6pm

        Our regular monthly catch up with BBQ sausage sizzle. $20 per couple/$30 per family. For those feeling active, bring along your tennis racquet for hit.  BYO drinks.

        This months offering is ‘Yesterday’ (2019): Jack Malic was just another struggling songwriter… but that was yesterday!  After a mysterious blackout he is the only person on earth who remembers The Beatles. A great story and if you remember The Beatles you will love this film.

        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 know if you are able to supply a main course, salad or dessert. (Lindy – 5965 2202).  PLEASE RSVP

        Steels Creek Landcare: Foot & Mouth Disease (FMD) What can we do locally?*
        Most of us will be aware of the recent outbreak of FMD in Indonesia and the possible impact to Australia’s agriculture industry should an outbreak occur here.  Our semi-rural location, where city, rural and tourism overlap means we should be vigilant by minimising the chance of transmission from visitors (human and animal) and being on the look out for any outbreaks.

        What is FMD?
        Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious animal disease that affects all cloven-hoofed animals including cattle, sheep, goats, camelids, deer and pigs. Cloven-hoofed animals are those with a split toe. It does not affect horses. (Camelids include alpacas, llamas and camels).

        Key points:

        • FMD virus is carried by live animals and in meat and dairy products, as well as in soil, bones, untreated hides, vehicles and equipment used with these animals. It can also be carried on people’s clothing and footwear.
        • Australia has detailed, well-rehearsed FMD response plans and arrangements in place.  Governments and industry’s preparedness is continuously reviewed.
        • It is critical that producers be aware of what foot and Mouth disease looks like and report any signs of the disease observed in their cloven-hoofed animals immediately to the Emergancy Animal Disease Watch hotline on 1800 675 8888, or their local veterinarian.
        • Know the signs of Foot and mouth disease (FMD): Look out for symptoms in your cloven-hoofed animals such as drooling and reluctance to move. These animals can suffer from blisters on the mouth, snout, tongue, lips or between and above the hooves on the feet.

        Transmission by people:

        People can unintentionally carry diseases, pests and weeds without even realising. This means anyone visiting your property including suppliers, vets, transporters, stock agents, consultants, itinerant workers, researchers and contractors. It also includes guests, and, anyone who lives on the property.  To limit the risk of visitors carrying new pests and diseases onto your property:
        · all visitors to the property must ensure that their vehicles, equipment, boots and clothing are clean and free from pests, weed seeds and plant material
        · limit visitor contact with livestock, crops or plant materials as much as possible and eliminate any unnecessary contact altogether

        What’s on in the valley!

        Community Market – Saturday 25th June @10am – Changes are afoot!

        Our community market has been part of valley life for many many years and has proven to be a great way for people to catch up, chat, exchange produce and find out about goings on in the district. Due to reducing numbers in attendance, it is time to review the current format and consider other options that may better suit the market in the future.  So please come along on Saturday and bring some ideas for the new market format.  If you are unable to attend but would like to put forward some suggestions, please contact Malcolm Calder 0435 726 484

        In the interim, the community market will change to a Community Get Together, being held on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Morning tea will be available, people are still welcome to bring produce, and maybe new things arising from this Saturday’s brain storm!

        Thursday Night Social Tennis: 23rd June @ 8:00pm

        For this session only we will start a little later due to a committee meeting being held beforehand.  Cost is $2 per person.

        • The mix of urban and rural areas across Yarra Ranges means we have many pets and animals of all shapes and sizes. We also have an abundance of native animals and sensitive environments in our parks, bushland and waterways.  How can we support safe and clean shared spaces for everyone, including people without animals, encourage responsible pet ownership and look after the wellbeing and management of cats and dogs?  This is where the Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) comes in. It gives council a way to identify and deal with all of these matters and more in relation to the management and wellbeing of, specifically cats and dogs, in Yarra Ranges.  Have your say, survey closes Monday 2 May 2022.  Domestic Animal Management Plan | Shaping Yarra Ranges

        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”
