Gorgeous weather this past weekend!  Great for getting out in the garden or having a hit at the tennis courts, and better than watching a very one sided AFL grand final.  Congrats to the Geelong Cats.

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

Hope you have the date marked in your diary!

Social & Tennis Club: 3 dates to note

Night social tennis, Thursday 29th September @7:30

If you fancy a hit of tennis, come down to the courts on Thursday evening.  Cost is $2 per person and we play for approx 2 hours (weather permitting).  The next evening session will be the 27th October.

Social Night, Friday 7th October @6pm

Friday night social nights are back on now that the weather has warmed up a tad.  Looking forward to seeing you at the courts for a BBQ and catch up.  $15 a couple and $25 a family, BYO drinks. The BBQ cooks have sourced the perfect spicy sausage as well as regular beef ones.

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

The annual open day will be held at the tennis courts, starting with the AGM, followed by a BBQ and social tennis.

Community Groups: Stitchers

What a way to spend a Tuesday afternoon, working on your latest sewing project, while chatting with friends and exchanging tips and ideas.  It could be a patchwork quilt, knitted scarf, crotchet beanie or a cross stitch pillowcase but regardless of the type of sewing skill, you and your project are welcome to the community centre between 1:30 and 4:00pm each Tuesday afternoon.  Jane Calder is current contact for this group so feel free to message Jane (0428 279 577) if you have any queries.

SCCC AGM  

Many thanks to those who came along to the AGM last week. Each committee position was made available and we are happy to say all positions have been filled once again. President: Maree Rothwell, Vice President: Kerry Guthrie, Secretary: Peter Benda, Treasurer: John Brand, General committee members: Ivan Filsell, Keith Montell, Mark Newel

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.

SC Landcare: Feral Deer Survey

Feral Deer Survey:  Northern Yarra Landcare Network is conducting a survey on your experiences with feral deer in the Steels Creek, Dixon Creek and Chum Creek areas.

This survey will assist in establishing:

  • An appreciation on the extent of the feral deer issue in the area.
  • 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. For those that live or own property in these areas and want to participate in the survey, click on this link https://www.northernyarralandcare.com.au/deer-survey

Community Groups: SC 4 Reel

Our very own Gold Class venue.  The film nights run on either the 2nd or 3rd Friday nights of the month, March to November.  They always start with a meal, a drink and a natter before dimming the lights for the feature presentation.  And it’s first in, best dressed if you want one of the two couches for that extra comfy viewing option………  Details of the next movie night will generally be here in The Grapevine, or look out for the sign at the entrance to the community centre.

Book Chat Group: Yarra Glen Living and Learning Centre

There is a new friendly daytime book group forming at the Yarra Glen Living & Learning Centre. Rather than having a set book to read for the month, discussion centres around participants favourite authors and a set Author of the Month.  The first meeting will be in October and the Author of the Month is Jane Harper.  For more information please call the YGL&LC on 9730 2887.

Sponsorship: Hoogies of Yarra Glen

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
The Steels Creek Landcare group is here to help and support members in their efforts the care for their land and the surrounding area.  Membership of the Landcare group gives you access to discounts with local businesses, as well as free access to equipment for loan for Steels Creek residents, and discounts to events.  Click on the following link http://www.steelscreeklandcare.org/  for more information on the Landcare group and to easily renew your membership or indeed, sign up as a new member.

Have something you’d like to promote via the Grapevine? Or maybe something to sell, buy or swap? You can submit an article online here or send an email to thegrapevine@steelscreek.vic.au. The Grapevine comes out each Tuesday evening and any messages submitted by 5pm on that day will be included.


Do you know of someone who is new in the valley? 
If so, make sure you let them know about registering their email address for both the grapevine and the Jolly Thing (NB.

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

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

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

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

Not surprisingly, the Christmas in July dinner, that was to be held this Friday (23rd July), has been postponed.

Steels Creek Community Centre Annual General Meeting (RESCHEDULED – 21st Dec 7pm)
The rescheduled AGM for the Steels Creek Community Centre commitee with be on the 21st Dec at 7pm. The meeting will be held at the Steels Creek Community centre under covid-safe operating guidelines. 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.
