Book in to be a
curious creature
An initiative to get kids reading is returning to Moorabool libraries this Summer.
The national Summer Reading Club is returning to Moorabool Shire Libraries, and online at
Created for children, from pre-school age to 17, the Summer Reading Club is a free program
led by State Library of Queensland (SLQ) that inspires imaginations and instils a love of
libraries and reading.
The 2018 theme, Curious Creatures, encourages eager young readers to discover new worlds
as they explore and connect with a curiosity of creatures through a range of interactive
activities available in libraries and online.
More than 43,000 children registered with the Summer Reading Club in 2017, reading over
360,000 books between them over summer, and organisers are hoping participants will crack
half a million books in 2018.
Summer Reading Club members can also meet 21 new Australian authors and illustrators
online, read their helpful creative hints and tips and preview exclusives of their up and
coming work.
Online participants will also have the opportunity to blog with children’s authors, Dr
Cameron Stelzer and Emma Middleton, search for answers to Encyclopaedia Britannica’s
sponsored quiz, craft a What Happens Next story ending to Dave Lowe’s story starter, share
their book raves and artwork, and lots more.
Summer Reading Club will run from 3 December 2018 to 18 January 2019.

Documenting that first Friday

By Meg Kennedy

It was an event that changed the face of

Australian football, and now a former Ballan
resident has been awarded for cementing it
in history.
Former Editor of The Ballan News, Kirby
Fenwick was awarded the 2018 Oral History
Victoria Award in Melbourne last month for
her audio documentary ‘The First Friday
In February’, which follows the story of the
first AFLW game between Collingwood and
Carlton in February 2017.
“It was unexpected, I certainly didn’t expect
to win…the audio documentary was a huge
part of my life for such a long time and it was
a huge amount of work, so this award feels
as if all that time, and all that energy, and all
that focus has been validated in a way,” Ms
Fenwick said.

Top 10 water tips Gardens & lawns
Now the warmer weather is here, Western Water recommends 10 top tips to make the most
of your water and local services.
Be Smart. Choose Tap.
can be watered
Drinking tap water is the best choice for your health, the environment and your hip pocket.
You can refill a water bottle with tap water for a whole year for the cost of just one bottle of
water. Anytime with a watering can, bucket or handheld hose
fitted with a trigger nozzle.
Know the rules.
Permanent Water Saving Rules are common sense rules that encourage the efficient use of
water. A watering can, bucket or hand-held hose fitted with a trigger nozzle can be used at
any time. Watering systems, including sprinklers, can be used between 6pm and 10am.
Adopt a hydrant.
Let us know if any fire hydrants in your neighbourhood need some attention. It will help the
CFA when they need to fight fires.
Store some water in your fridge.
In the event of an emergency, like a burst water main or bushfire, you’ll always have some
water available to drink. 6pm - 10am with watering systems, including sprinklers.
Be prepared.
Remember that Western Water can’t guarantee water pressure or an uninterrupted water
supply in the event of a bushfire. Western Water will have backup generators ready, storage
tanks filled to high capacity, and staff on call during the fire danger period. Residents should
consult the CFA about their options for protecting their property during a fire.

Lions paw on
the pressure
By Todd Whelan

The Darley Lions First Grade XI hold the upper hand at the
end of Day One needing a further 130 runs for victory, with
nine wickets in hand against Ballarat-Redan.
After losing the toss the Lions were handed the new ball
and sent into the field. Chasing their fourth win in a row the
Lions’ mounting pressure started from the outset as strike
bowler Ben Longhurst had both openers back in the pavillion
with the score on ten.
The home team struggled to build partnerships as wickets
continued to fall. Ballarat-Redan could manage just two
partnerships beyond 40 to deny themselves any arrest in
