Bacchus Marsh Football Team 1914. Photo Bacchus Marsh and District Historical Society

Who are these men?

By Jessica Howard

The Bacchus Marsh and District Historical Society is looking to identify a group of footballers in a photo dating back to the early 1900s. Found in the Society archives, the photograph is of the 1914 Bacchus Marsh football team. Society member, Chris Bronchinetti said identifying the men will help to progress the Society’s research on the World War I soldiers of the area. She said the research will chronical the stories of each serviceman, which will be compiled into a hard copy book.

“We think perhaps a good three-quarters of the men in the photo would have served in the First World War,” she said. “In 1914, at least half a dozen soldiers left Bacchus Marsh and in 1915 another big contingent left too. The Bacchus March football team didn’t play any football in 1915, 1916 or 1917, so we think a lot of people that went to the war in that time are in that photo”. Ms Bronchinetti said the Society hoped to publish the photograph in the hard copy book, which is set to be launched later this year. “Unfortunately we don’t have all of the soldier’s individual photos, so instead we want to be able to use community photos, like this one”.

Through the Bacchus Marsh Express, the Historical Society has identified 465 volunteers who enlisted to serve in WWI, and who had a connection with Bacchus Marsh and surrounds. Ms Bronchinetti said anyone with information that could help identify those in the photograph can drop into the Historical Society rooms on Mondays, Tuesdays or Fridays between 10am and 12pm and 2pm and 4pm. Information can also be sent to enquiries@bmdhs.org. au. The Bacchus Marsh and District Historical Society is located inside the Lerderderg Library, 215 Main Street, Bacchus Marsh.

A life of marriage

By Jessica Howard

Maren Leavy was just 17-years-old when she at- tended the same church social as the man she’d later celebrate 70-years of mar- riage with.

Jim Bourke entered the room and a crowd of people stood up and called, “Hello Jimmy!”.

Maren, who despite never meeting the man, wasn’t shy, and jumped up and called, “Hello Jimmy!”, too.

Four years later, on January 31 1948, the pair married at the Thornbury Salvation Army – the same place the church social was held those years before.

proposal

came as a bit of a surprise.

“Jim bought a farm in Bac- chus Marsh in 1945 while I was living in Northcote,” she said.

“At the time I was actually planning on telling him to go on his own way, but he came down to visit me and said, ‘Guess what? I’ve told everyone that we’re getting

engaged’, so I said, ‘Okay!”.

Despite the initial shock,

Maren said the following

seven decades were filled

with love, good times and

plenty of laughter.

The couple lived and worked on the dairy farm in Bacchus Marsh, where they raised their seven children, John, Jim (junior), Peter, Greg, Geoff, Phillip (dec.) and Maren (junior).

“We originally wanted two

kids - one boy and one girl,”

Maren said.

“We kept trying until we

got the girl”.

five-years-ago.

The past 70-years has seen the couple travel the world extensively, with highlights including Canada and Austria. In 1972, they booked a trip overseas with the hope of staying for a couple of weeks. They returned home more than five-months later. Now, with 13 grandchil- dren, 15 great-grandchildren and soon to be one great- great grandchild, Maren and Jim look forward to stay- ing in Bacchus Marsh and spending time with their family and friends. Jim, who turns 92 in March, said the key to 70 years of marriage was finding the right person. “The best thing [Maren] ever did was meet me,” he said. “She’s been a great wife, a great worker and a great helper. I wouldn’t change her”. Maren and Jim Bourke celebrated their 70th plati- num wedding anniversary with family and friends on Wednesday January 31.

The Metro Tunnel will get Melbourne’s train network moving

Untangling the City Loop means more trains, more often

The Metro Tunnel will untangle the City Loop which will benefit train lines across the network. It will make travel easier for you with more frequent trains carrying more people to destinations across Melbourne.

Some of Melbourne’s busiest metropolitan train lines – Sunbury, Cranbourne and Pakenham – will run exclusively through the new tunnel. Taking these lines out of the City Loop will create space for other lines to run more services, enabling more frequent and reliable train services to and from Southern Cross Station.

For the first time, you will be able to reach some key destinations around Melbourne via the Metro Tunnel’s five new underground stations: Arden (to be renamed North Melbourne), Parkville, State Library, Town Hall and Anzac. For instance, train passengers travelling to Victoria’s world class health and education precinct at Parkville will be able to get there directly by train instead of having to catch a tram from Southern Cross station.

Two of the new stations, State Library and Town Hall stations, will be directly connected to the City Loop at Melbourne Central and Flinders Street stations, enabling passengers to conveniently interchange between services.

When travelling in Melbourne

From February onwards, visitors to Melbourne may be affected by long-term traffic changes to St Kilda Road, near the Shrine of Remembrance, and Grattan Street, Parkville, as we undertake major construction.

More information

Expect delays and plan ahead. To see how you might be affected, visit metrotunnel.vic.gov.au.

During a community drop-in evening in No- vember 2016, community members and traders con- firmed that the preferences for streetscape elements, such as footpath materials, street plantings and street furniture, were suitably re- flected on the preliminary plans informed by an earlier consultation.

was establishing itself as an economically vibrant town. “It shows that those in- volved in this collaboration strongly believe in the im- portance of our town’s pres- entation,” he said. “Ballan is fast becoming a poster child for de-centrali- sation, and you don’t get two goes at a first impression, so we need to put our best foot forward. “For peri-urban regions, de- centralisation means those living in inner city areas are becoming aware of the high price of real estate and as a result, are choosing to move out to the peri-urban and ru- ral areas. “However, in saying that, the de-centralisation of a town doesn’t take away the soul of the village. Those that choose to move into rural areas are getting the same services, but they are getting something else that they wouldn’t otherwise get; and that is community spirit”. Stage One of the streetscape plan will run from mid-Feb- ruary to early June, meaning there will be some disrup- tion in the street. Cr. Tatchell apologised in advance for the disruption and said Council will be working very closely with traders to ensure any impact

is kept to a minimum.

All works will cease during the upcoming Ballan Au- tumn Festival, to be held on Sunday March 18. “I’m very excited about the future,” Mr Tatchell said.

“This development is not one person’s vision, it’s everybody’s vision, and

I can’t wait to see it at its completion”.

Moorabool Shire Council is on the hunt for
local age friendly ambassadors.
Moorabool Shire Mayor, Paul Tatchell said
the ambassadors will work together in the
delivery of an age friendly project that has
been funded until October 2018.
Mr Tatchell said the funding will provide
an opportunity for older local residents to
consult with their communities, and develop
some local age-ility projects, that will
contribute to a more age friendly Moorabool.
“The ambassadors will help to raise the
profile of positive ageing and provide
information and advice to Council around
the interests and issues that concern our
older residents,” he said.
“We would like to hear from people with
an interest in their communities, who are
willing to participate in some skill building
workshops, consult with individuals and
groups, and work with Council to achieve
some age friendly projects.”
Expression of interest forms have been
sent to local service groups and community

Dear Editor,
The Liberals have a positive plan to tackle
violent youth crime and keep Victorians safe.
Along with tougher sentencing, bail and
parole laws, we have a plan to engage with
young people to stop youth offending before
it starts.
A Liberal state government will work with
Victoria Police to re-establish a Police in
Schools program for Victoria.
Victoria is the only state in Australia that
does not currently have a ‘Police in Schools’
program. The former ‘Police Schools
Involvement Program’ was axed in 2005 by
then Chief Commissioner Christine Nixon,
despite a 2004 study which found that the
program was effective and should continue
with some improvements.
The Police in Schools program will
help school children gain a stronger
understanding and respect for police and
help break the cycle of youth crime.
An additional 100 new police will be
funded to work as School Resource Officers
to complement the existing Victoria Police
Youth Resource Officers.
The program will also incorporate a pilot
project to embed one full-time, dedicated
police member into each of ten metropolitan
and regional secondary schools, for a two-
year trial period, in areas identified as having
specific youth needs or ‘at risk’ challenges.
It’s critical the education system gets back to
basics and that also means building respect
for our police and the community.

Proposal to rejuvenate Bald Hill

Preserving the ‘olden days’

By Kate Taylor

Councillor Jarrod Bingham

But while the site is not suit- able for conventional uses such as active sport fields or residential development, there may be opportunities to layer and promote mul- tiple uses upon the site for broader community benefits. Some of the suggestions included in the recommen- dation are a lookout over spectacular surrounding bushland and the distant Melbourne CBD; dedicated mountain bike and horse riding trails; a ‘1000-step’ style fitness location; shared walking and cycling tracks; and Aboriginal, environ- mental and local heritage interpretation. A scoping document will be prepared by council of- ficers, and external funding sources explored.

Step back in time to the ‘good old days’ this Sunday 18 February. The Ballan Racecourse recreation reserve will host the annual Vintage Rally put on by the Ballan District Vintage Machinery & Vehicle Club. Watch first hand how cut grass is turned into baled hay; hay turned into chaff and how heated water creates steam to run machinery. Many different classes of tractors will vie for the winning ‘Full Pull’ as their might and power attempts to pull a water laden trailer over the finish line. Club member Ray Meadows said the day is enormous for the district and provides good spectator entertainment. “The Model Aircraft display is very popular with not just tractors on display but vintage motorbikes and classic cars. “It is an inexpensive day out with lots of variety and old-time wares. “There is also sheep shearing in one of the sheds and lots of fun for the kids.” The Vintage rally opens from 9.30am – 4pm with a cost to Adults of $10, Family $20 and children U14 free.

It’s currently a bit of a dumping ground – but there are big plans on the horizon for Bald Hill. Located on the urban edge of Darley, and owned by council, the reserve is 130ha in size, with 60ha managed by Council. The remaining 70ha is un- der a ‘peppercorn’ lease of $1/year agreement until 2027, with much of the site having been planted with Sugar Gums which are scheduled to be commer- cially harvested in 2027. In a motion moved at the December 6 council meet- ing, East Ward Councillor Jarrod Bingham noted that due to terrain and natural features, the reserve often attracts rubbish dumping, il- legal hunting and shooting,

illegal trail bike and 4WD access and dumping of cars, which require Council funds to clean up; make secure or otherwise rectify. “Currently Council has to manage and maintain this reserve which returns little or no value for local resi- dents,” Cr Bingham’s motion read.

New elders takeover landmark business
By Jessica Howard
After 25-years, the owners
of Crossroads Trading in
Ballan are hanging up their
boots.
Lloyd Robertson and Peter
Nolan purchased the Old
Melbourne Road building
in 1991 and transformed it
from an old service station
into a soil yard, with a side
of second hand furniture.
“The old building was
nothing like what it is now,”
Lloyd said.
“The old servo hadn’t been
used for quite some time, it
was really more of an old
shed, but we cleaned that up
with a bit of paint and a lot
of time. We were a standard
soil yard back then, with less
farm equipment and the sale
of second hand furniture
and knick-knacks.
“We ran the second-hand
furniture for about eight-
years. It was always in our
business plan to do stock
feed, but at the time there
was another business run-
ning in Ballan and there
wasn’t enough room for two.
“When the place was on
its way down, we saw the
opportunity to move and
started doing stock feed be-
fore slowly moving towards
farm supplies”.
Lloyd said the pair, who
have been friends for over
three decades, came up with
the idea for the business
while horse riding.
“We used to go riding to-
gether occasionally, and on
one of those occasions we
spoke about what Ballan
might have needed going

forward, and from there we
developed a business plan
for the business.
“It’s been a lot of work,
but it’s been very reward-
ing at the same time. You
get to meet a lot of great
people through your daily
transactions”.
The business has now been
handed over to Greendale
residents Asha and Bernie
Shanahan.
Asha has worked in the
agricultural industry for the
last eight-years. Her hus-
band Bernie has lived on the
100-year-old family farm in
Greendale since birth and
upon completing school,
worked in cattle yards be-
fore becoming a stock agent
for Elders.
“It’s an honour to take on
what Peter and Lloyd have
achieved,” Asha said.
“Bernie and I have two lit-
tle girls and working in the
corporate industry was a bit
much, so the opportunity to
have our own business was
perfect for our family”.
Bernie said the new busi-
ness venture was equally
daunting and exciting.
“It’s going to be good work-
ing with the community and
providing them with face-
to-face farm knowledge. We
are taking over a very well
established business and we
want to continue that”.
Lloyd said after 25-years,
he felt comfortable stepping
away from Crossroads.
“Mainly because the peo-
ple who have taken over are
quite capable,” he said.
“[Asha and Bernie] are lo-
cal, they have good agri-
cultural knowledge and are
well prepared for what they
will have to take on.
“Crossroads is in very good
hands”.

Home Owners Grant in regional Victoria we’ve seen almost three times as many people receive the grant,” he said. Ms Pulford said the incentives are in addition to new services being rolled out by the Government. “The first home owners initiatives are a great way of growing region- al areas and retaining young peo- ple in our communities,” she said. On average, first home buyers across Victoria will be around $8,000 better off, with some buyers more than $15,000 better off.

New Moorabool residents are tak- ing advantage of first home buyer and builder funding. Last year the state government abolished stamp duty for first home buyers purchasing new and existing homes up to $600,000, and discounted stamp duty up to

$750,000.

Conviction for illegal timber activity By Jessica Howard A man who sold illegally harvested timber
Conviction for
illegal timber
activity
By Jessica Howard
A man who sold illegally harvested timber
sourced from the Wombat State Forest has
been fined more than $5,000.
The Daylesford resident appeared in the
Ballarat Magistrates’ Court on Monday
(January 22) charged with conducting an
unauthorised timber harvesting operation;
felling trees; taking away forest produce and
driving off road.
Grant Allan, Department of Environment,
Land, Water and Planning’s (DELWP)
Grampians Regional Manager
Environmental Compliance, said the man
claimed he made a living from selling timber
that he had lawfully collected from private
property, but when demand exceeded
supply, he would go into the forest and
illegally source more timber.
Mr Allan said in June 2017, Forest and
Wildlife Officers attended a Daylesford
property and seized a ute, chainsaws
and a hydraulic block splitter used in the
commission of these offences; but left behind
a quantity of timber and sawn firewood
harvested from both private and public land.
“These are serious offences that are
commonly prosecuted by DELWP and
particularly aggravating that in this instance,
the offending was of a continuous nature,
not a one-off incident,” he said.
“It was offending over many months with
considerable thought and effort put into the
unlawful operation.
“Apart from cutting and removing timber
unlawfully, the man was also capitalising on
a natural resource for commercial gain”.
Mr Allan said the illegal activity has a
significant impact on the environment,
which leads to loss of habitat for native fauna
that rely on the development of hollows for
nesting and roosting sites.
“Designated firewood collection areas are
put in place to protect sites of cultural and
environmental significance,” he said.
The Daylesford man was convicted and
fined $5,000 plus costs of $717.34.
He was also fined $500 in relation to a CCTV
camera he stole from the bush.
“Our officers will continue to investigate
reports of suspected illegal firewood
suppliers and those caught will face
significant penalties and the potential loss of
plant and equipment used in the commission
of an offence,” Mr Allan said.
If you are aware of the illegal sale of
firewood or any unauthorised activity
relating to firewood on Victorian public land,
we encourage you to report it by calling 136
186. All information provided will be treated
in the strictest confidence”.

It’s a new year for the Eagles, who will enter the 2018 Central Highlands Football League campaign under the realm of past Geelong premiership coach Ron Watt. The highly respected leader started a nine-week pre-season with Gordon’s senior side on Thursday (February 1), after taking over the reins from Gary Learmonth in November

last year.

Watt, who returns to coaching his own team for the first time in more than a decade, said he was enthusiastic about the season ahead. “After meeting the people of Gordon, I knew straight away that this [position] was going to be good for me,” he said. “Over the last 30-35 years I’ve been in Geelong, and around the Geelong Football League and AFL, and I’m now ready to coach a country team. I grew up playing footy in country New South Wales and I’m really looking forward to going back to something that I grew up with and loved”. Watt said the next nine-weeks of pre-season training were about getting back to basics and learning to make good decisions. “We’ll be focusing on the fundamentals of the game - learning how to attack and how to defend, and working with some real intensity, while also learning to work together as a team,” he said. Alongside their new coach, the Eagles have seen the addition of over ten new players, including Angus Watts, who returns from Maryborough; Ethan Crackle; and Adam Richardson, who joins his brother Cameron, a former AFL player and

previous playing coach at Bacchus Marsh. “It’s really good to see a high number of new players coming in,” Watt said. “Angus Watts is bringing a couple of friends with him and we’ve also picked up a few students from Federation University. We’ve lost Ash Munari, a leading goal kicker, so we needed these new additions”. Watt said while it was still early stages for him as coach, he was excited by the team’s clear enthusiasm. “In the lead up to Christmas, we ran a few training sessions, so the team could see what I am like and for me to get a feel of the club and the people, and I was pretty impressed with the over 20 players who attended each night,” he said. “That’s the biggest thing I’ve found so far – their eagerness to play, be involved and just pick up the phone and return your call. It has been absolutely outstanding and on a personal side it has been very gratifying”. The 2018 CHFL season will commence on Saturday April 7, with Gordon going head-to-head in an away game against neighbouring club Ballan.

Darley Cricket Club

By Shaun Kelly

Darley’s First XI finals hopes in the Ballarat Cricket Association are still alive, with the Lions holding the upper hand in their two-day clash with Ballarat-Redan after the first day’s play on Saturday. After dismissing the Two Swords for 149, Darley survived 14 overs at the end of play to be 0/15 heading into an important second day’s play next Saturday at Darley Park. Ben Longhurst was the chief destroyer with the ball, taking 5/41 from 21 overs, with Anurudda Rajapaksha and Roshan Anuruddha taking two wickets each. Darley’s Second XI are on the verge of a victory that would cement a finals appearance as well after an impressive performance against VRI Delacombe. The Lions dismissed VRI Delacombe for 130 inside 48 overs, with wickets coming quickly after the opposition worked their way to 2/82 before the reliable Jamie McKerrow removed danger man Jarrod Burns, causing the wheels to fall off the VRI batting wagon as they lost 8/48 after that. A mini-batting collapse saw the Lions go from 1/71 to 4/81 in quick time, ending the day at 4/93 with Nick Whan (17 not out) and Mitch Ward (1 not out) looking to lead the Lions to victory next weekend. Darley’s Third XI are in an interesting position in their game against Wendouree White – one in which first innings points could be decided fairly quickly next Saturday. After winning the toss and batting at the Hub, the Lions were bundled out for just 87 in only 35 overs – a tally which could have been much worse if not for a 24 run eighth wicket partnership between Brendan Densley (27) and Josh Calvitto

(21).

In response, Wendouree White are teetering at 7/56, still requiring 31 runs for first innings points with just three wickets remaining. Darley’s Fourth XI weren’t as successful in their one-day match against Ballan, going down by 10 runs. The Lions made 4/147 off their 40 overs batting first, with Clint Salisbury continuing his rich vein of recent form with 88 not out, combining for a 60 run second wicket partnership with Darren Hynes (35) as the innings’ top scorers. Whilst only needing less than 30 overs to pass Darley’s score, Ballan had a middle-order scare, going from 2/120 to 7/140 before steadying the ship to pass the Lion’s total.

Juniors Darley’s 16 & Under side have continued their undefeated run defeating Elaine by three wickets in their first post- Christmas game of the season. After Elaine scored 9/149 in the first week of play last weekend, the Lions had to work hard to stay undefeated, with an unbeaten half-century from Jordan Monaghan, who finished on 57 not out with five fours, and an impressive 49 from Regan King (five fours and one six) leading the Lions to a victory that sees them two games clear at the top of the ladder with two rounds remaining. Darley’s 14 & Under First XI are also setting themselves for finals after a massive victory over Wendouree Red this past weekend. Wendouree Red’s first 25 overs last week saw them contained to 8/92, and it didn’t lake long for the Lions to finish the job, dismissing the Red Caps for 103, with Jimmy Martindale and Will Johnson taking the last two wickets, leaving Johnson with the amazing figures of 3/0 from 2.5 overs. Darley’s winning run unfortunately didn’t extend to their Under 14 side, who were beaten outright by Eynesbury Eagles Green. The Eagles scored 9/252 from their 45 overs in the first week of play last week, with Taine Powell taking two wickets and Josh Di Mieri, Oliver Murray, Jackson Hunt and captain Tarkyn Hamilton all taking one wicket each. The Lions were then dismissed twice in the second week of play, all out for 65 in their first innings then bundled out for just 41 in their second innings, which lasted just 13.1 overs. The Darley Roar Under 12 side also took on Eynesbury Green in their Friday night Twenty20 match, with the Eagles coming out victors. Batting first, Darley scored 4/73 off their 20 overs led by 15 from Angus Jones, which included three boundaries, before the Eagles replied with 2/97 from their 20 overs, with Mitchell Wells taking 1/4 from his two overs, with the only other dismissal a run out by Harvey Hoey. Darley’s two Under 10 sides, the Cubs and the Prowl, faced each other in an exciting game at Mason’s Lane Reserve on Saturday morning, with the Cubs batting first to make 4/114 from their 20 overs with Destiny Stewart making 16, Maddie Scott 12, Jessie Hodge 11 and Mackenzie Elmer 10, with Ewan Shelley taking two wickets for the Prowl and Aarav Goel and Theodore Kannar one each. In reply, the Prowl finished on 9/102 with Max Learmonth leading the way with 20 and Ewan Shelley making 19. Hodge, Elmer and Scott all finished with three wickets each for the Cubs.
