The Berry
Alliance
The majority of the proceeds from the New Years Eve Fireworks
Spectacular will go toward developing an adventure playground in
North Street Berry.
ROTARY CLUB’S VISION
The vision for a Children’s Adventure Playground recognizes the need
for an exciting place to play, exercise and to have fun, plus to develop
an attraction to encourage young families to visit Berry.
DESIGN FEATURES
The concept is to provide a diverse range of settings for children and
their families and carers to enjoy, regardless of their level of ability.
• The playground should be physically accessible and socially
inclusive, designed to facilitate children of different abilities playing
together.
• It should have graded challenges help children to develop their
physical skills, confidence and gain a sense of satisfaction.
• The play spaces should support children to ponder over details of
nature, to play creatively with loose materials, to imagine and to
role play.
• It could also include
a mini roadway track
to enable learning of
road rules, senior’s
fitness stations, BBQ
picnic areas, garden
landscaping and
toilets.
• It should be fun,
exciting and demand
a return visit.
The Rotary Club of Berry thanks everyone for attending the Fireworks
Spectacular. Together, we can make the dream of an adventure
playground a reality.

Sustainable
Futures
Welcome to the new year. 2014 saw a surge
of activity in Berry around the principle of
sustainability, with the funding of reusable
cups and bags by the Berry Alliance, and
a push by the community group, Only One
Earth, towards making Berry plastic bag free.
Unfortunately, a surge of holiday makers
temporarily pushed plastic bag use in the
wrong direction, but it has been encouraging
to see residents taking up the offer of reusable
items, and putting them to use.
Our thanks to the local retailers who assisted
with distribution after the Christmas Parade
give away. If you still have not exchanged
your Town Crier voucher for a Keepcup or
bamboo bag, we have a few left over. Alliance
committee members can let you know how
to redeem your voucher. Thanks also to the
dedicated few at OOE, who have worked
hard to raise community awareness about
reducing our reliance on plastic bags.
Over recent months several interesting
news stories have highlighted initiatives
by individuals and communities who are
actively taking control of their futures. Links
to all these stories are below. Lauren Singer,
a young New Yorker, has made no rubbish
for the past two years. She is proof that you
don’t need to live a totally alternative, hippy
lifestyle to be low impact. Boyan Slat, an even
younger Dutch man, is dedicating his energy
to a larger issue; the huge volume of plastics
polluting our oceans.
The Byron Bay community are pushing for
the first Australian community-owned solar
power electricity generator, this comes after
German citizens in Hamburg voted in 2013
to buy back the electricity grid in a bid to take
control back from the private sector. Berlin
The Berry
Alliance
residents are looking to follow suit. While it is
hard to find definitive figures, various sources
estimate transmission and distribution
losses account for up to 10% of electricity
generation, with 10% of the energy content
of coal being lost in combustion. These
losses are covered in the cost of electricity
to the consumer, making local renewable
generation of power financially viable.
While many people link the issue of
sustainability only with the environment,
it is also an important factor for financial
investment. If you hold shares or have
funds in superannuation, you may wish to
investigate this issue further.
Companies now have to consider future
clean sourcing of water and ingredients,
and these decisions impact directly on their
shareholders. A newly opened Sydney bakery
is the first business in Australia to have a
closed loop environmental system; all organic
waste in processed on site into compost
that is then made available to customers
and suppliers; all grey water is used in the
newly planted native garden; hives of bees
on the rooftop produce honey for their cafes;
and large storage onsite means less flour
packaging and fewer truck deliveries. These
measures lead to cost cutting in rubbish and
recycling removal.
The Rockerfeller Brothers Fund withdrew
from fossil fuel investments in September
2014 in favour of renewable energy sources.
The Rockerfeller family are the heirs of a
dynasty that made their money in oil. You can
bet this decision was not made from a purely
altruistic stand point; financial advisors would
have seen divesting in fossil fuels as a sound
financial decision, as well as an ethical and a
symbolic gesture regarding the future vision
for the Fund.
Responsible and ethical investors have
pushed retailers and manufacturers to
improve the treatment of Bangladesh garment
workers after the collapse of the Rana Plaza
building in 2013. Global investors have also
been working to support the Roundtable on
Sustainable Palm Oil, which in turn protects
the forests of Malaysia and Indonesia.
Investment in businesses that are committed
to sustainability is a sound financial decision;
the annual study by the Responsible
Investment Association Australasia reveals a
consistent margin of return above mainstream
investments since 2002. The 2014 RIAA
Benchmark Report for Australia and New
Zealand states that, “Core responsible
investment Australian equities funds have
outperformed the ASX 300 index and the
large cap Australian equities fund average
over 1, 3, 5 and 10 years.”
Food for thought as we head into 2015.

Berry & District Garden Club News
Classical strains from a Shoalhaven Youth Orchestra quartet and a festively
decorated hall welcomed 100 B&DGC members and guests to our annual
Christmas party in December. With time and space to mingle and chat, a
delicious meal of roasts and salads and the camaraderie that shared interests
brings, the evening was a fitting end to another enjoyable club year before
the summer break.
With the festive season now over, we are back out in the garden. During summer, early morning
or evening is the preferable time to work with shaded areas given attention over the middle
of the day. Watering in the morning rather than evening helps avoid fungal diseases. Do not
prune sun damaged foliage yet as this still provides some protection for lower leaves. It may
not be too late to make a gardener’s New Year’s resolution to create a shaded entertaining area
before Christmas, 2015. This could be as simple as planting a tree or erecting a pergola over
a seating area. Deciduous trees and climbers that will let in winter sun are preferable with the
beautiful crepe myrtle tree, now flowering around Berry, one obvious choice. Left unpruned, its
attractive trunk patterns will become an added attraction in the garden.
The Berry Show is upon us with a visit to the pavilion one of the highlights. B&DGC takes a
keen interest in the fruit, vegetable, potted plants, cut flowers and floral arrangement sections,
sponsoring a number of awards. We particularly encourage entries of containers of pentas
with the award named for our late life member, Betty Miles. Check the Berry Show schedule,
stroll around your garden and see what you can enter.
The new club year will be launched at a gathering for members in a Woodhill garden on Saturday,
14 February with the first meeting for 2015 following on Tuesday, 17 February in St Luke’s
Church hall, Princess Street, at 7.30 pm. The guest speaker, Suzanne Kingsford, will address
the topic, “Landscaping with easy care roses”. The talk will focus on the use of roses in mixed
nglish style, rather than separate more formal rose plantings. Suzanne

Berry Bowling Club
A very successful Presentation night held on
6th December in conjunction with the Berry
Women’s Club saw the presentation of the
awards for 2014 and the handing over of the
men’s Grade 3 District Pennants flag by Peter
Ingram Chairman of Directors of Bomaderry
Bowling Club Ltd. The raffle conducted at the
presentation night resulted in $291.00 being
donated to the Berry Karinya Palliative Care Unit.
Programme for the 2015 Club Championships
has been drawn up and the first three events will
be the Championship Fours which for the first
time for the Berry club will be conducted on a
single entry basis with the Match Committee
finalising the actual team structures. The
finalisation of the Fours will see attention turned
to the Minor Singles which will commence mid
March and will be followed by the Championship
Singles with entries closing on 18th April.
During this period the Club will also be busy
playing in the District Pennant competition which
is programmed to commence late February
2015. Our Club has entered two sides which will
probably be playing in grades 2 and 6.
Despite the commitments to Club Championships and District Pennants social bowls will
continue to be played at 1.00pm Wednesday
and Saturday with bookings being accepted up
until 12 noon on day of play on phone 0488 729

of bowls and the facilities available at the Berry

EBOLA COLLECTION AT BERRY SHOW
Berry Branch will once again be collecting
for the Ebola Crisis at the Berry Show where
we will have a stall near the Grandstand. So
please look out for the collection if you would
like to contribute to help control this outbreak
of a lethal disease.
SERVICES PROVIDED BY THE RED CROSS
The Red Cross provides many services. Some
of them are in our own local community,
others involve serving in other communities or
overseas. A good example of this is the work of:
BOB HANDBY
If you attended the 100th
Birthday Party for the
Berry branch of the Red
Cross in August 2014 you
will remember that Australian Red Cross water and
sanitation specialist, aid
worker and Australian Red
Cross Ambassador, Bob
Hanby was our guest speaker.
He has come out of retirement
as a water and sanitation
specialist for the Red Cross
and has been sent to Kono in Sierra Leone to
help set up an Ebola treatment centre. A fresh
outbreak of the disease has occurred there
with at least 87 people dying.
In a recent interview on the ABC he explained
that the government is trying to restrict the
movement of people in and out of affected
areas in order to reduce the spread of the
disease. Burying the bodies of those that have
died from the disease is also important for
this reason. The hospital has, however, been
struggling recently as a number of nurses and
ambulance drivers have been infected by the
disease which has made some of the others
scared to do their work.
BECOMING A MEMBER

with or volunteering with the Red Cross

Horses were an integral part of the human
journey to civilization and for many of us
they remain a grand passion. Riders are like
an International tribe. Although we follow
different disciplines and have different
breeds we are united by a connection to these
remarkable animals. Those of us who ride out
and about often encounter the phenomenon
of children and adults who are fascinated by
the sight of a horse. The Shoalhaven district
sees a massive influx of tourists at this time
of year and many of us are familiar with a
passing car slowing down or stopping so
the occupants can see our horses; we are
regularly approached by city parents and
children desperate to pat and interact with
our mounts. The expression of wistfulness
and excitement on the face of a young child
having their first physical encounter with a
horse is memorable. Who knows where this
fascination comes from? For many of us
who came from non-horsy back grounds the
love of horses seems almost intrinsic. Our
first experience ignites a lifelong love of the
equine species.
When Berry Riding Club is holding events at
our ground we often meet people who were
passing by and have come in to find out
more about the action. In this district we are
fortunate that there are many opportunities
for children and adults to learn to ride
and join the Equestrian community. The
organization “Ready, Steady, Trot” provides
children without horses (and sometimes

establish the basics of
horsemanship.
There
are several local riding
schools and trail riding establishments which give
tourists and local people a
taste of the pleasure and
excitement of horse riding. Many of these
people will go on to find ways to include
horses in their lives. Berry Riding Club offers
opportunities for riders in all disciplines and
at all levels to experience competition and
training.
Our Pink Ribbon Festival which was
postponed due to bad weather will now be
held at Berry Showground on the weekend
of 21st and 22nd February. It presents a
wonderful opportunity for all members of
the community to drop in and have a look
at horses and riders having fun and raising
money for charity. Wear Pink!

“Calisth – what –ics” in Berry?
Oh, it’s CALISTHENICS!
WHAT ON EARTH IS CALISTHENICS?
Calisthenics is like having all your dance
classes – plus physie, gymnastics, singing
and acting - rolled into one! It is a competitive
performance dance sport, unique to Australia,
which develops strength, flexibility, grace,
confidence and poise through a combination
of dance (ballet, modern and folk), marching,
gymnastics, singing, acting and apparatus
manipulation (clubs and rods). Working in
teams it combines the best aspects of sport
and art. Children and adults of all ages thrive
on the variety and challenges offered in the
many facets of Calisthenics.
The word calisthenics comes from the Greek
words ‘kallos’ for beauty and ‘thenos’ for
strength. Its components achieve those
physical attributes, whilst also influencing
the emotional and social development of girls
and boys through friendship and teamwork.
In their weekly cali class, pupils learn
around six routines (one in each of its core
disciplines; each with a different costume,
each choreographed to music by their coach
for them ) concurrently throughout a year,
and present these on stage at competitions,
concerts and displays.
Calisthenics is the oldest and one of the
fastest growing artistic sports. Public classes
began in the 1880s in Victoria, about 20
years after Berry PS was opened and 25
years before the Berry School Of Arts was
built, and took another 133 years to reach
us here, with the inception of Diamond
Calisthenics Club (DCC) in 2013. The brain
child and fruit of the labours of a cali family
who’d moved from Sydney, and their coach
who couldn’t see them leave the sport,
Berry’s own and only dance sport is growing
from strength to strength. Great things are on

no experience or pre requisites and really has
something for everyone.

The Showgirl Competition
The Showgirl Competition aims to find a young woman to act as an ambassador for rural NSW. It is not a
beauty pageant; the girls must have a genuine interest in, and knowledge of, rural NSW. The Competition
encourages the participation and subsequent awareness of rural women’s’ contribution and involvement in
both local communities and rural NSW as a whole.
Contestants are judged on personality, confidence, ambition, life goals, general knowledge, rural
knowledge, presentation and speech. As part of their potential ambassadorial qualities, contestants are
also judged on their involvement in, and experience of, rural affairs. This year the 127th Berry Show will
enjoy the energy, beauty and ideas of five wonderful showgirl entrants.
BROOKE BEVAN - Brooke is 19 years of age
and is proudly sponsored by The Grange at
Berry. With a keen interest in animal welfare,
Brooke aims to complete her certificate lll in
Captive Animals in 2015. Brooke has always
wanted to be involved with the Berry Showgirl
competition so she can grow her knowledge
of the local area, its industries and to make
connections within the local community.
ELIZABETH PRIMROSE - Elizabeth is 22 years
of age and is proudly sponsored by Regal
Girls Boutique, Berry. Elizabeth is looking
forward to starting her Masters of Teaching
(Primary) in 2015. Elizabeth has attended
the Berry Show for much of her life, she has
dreamed of being in the Showgirl competition
since she was a little girl.
TESSA MCMAHON - Tessa is 20 years of
age and is proudly sponsored by the Berry
Pharmacy. The year 2015 is an exciting one
for Tessa as she starts her Advanced Nursing
Degree. Tessa thinks it is important for young
rural women to celebrate and gain support for
the role that they play within the community.
DANA MCMULLEN - Dana is 19 years of age
and is proudly sponsored by The Berry Ice
Creamery. Having completed her higher
school certificate at the Nowra Anglican
College, Dana is busy attending to her role
at manager at the Berry Ice Creamery. Dana
believes the Showgirl competition will be
an amazing experience as well as a great
chance to meet new people and get involved
in her community.
HEATHER HALLS - Twenty one year old
Heather is proudly sponsored by The Berry
Tea Shop. Heather is now the proud owner of
Gypsy Flora Design in Berry. She entered the
Showgirl competition as she saw it as a great
way to get involved in the local community
and see a different side of the Show and how
it brings people together.
The Berry Show Society wishes to thank Bendigo Bank, McGrath Real Estate, the Waddell family,
Nowra Mazda, South Coast Register and all our other sponsors for supporting the Showgirl competition.
The announcement of Berry Showgirl 2015 will be made at the Berry Show on Saturday 31st January at approximately 7pm.

NEWS FROM BERRY MUSEUM
Berry Museum is run by the Berry and District Historical Society Inc.
THE BERRY SHOW
As usual the Berry and District historical Society will have a stall near the Grandstand.
The display at the stall will be about the women from Berry who volunteered as nurses in the First World War.
Please come along and see the display and find out about the Historical Society and its activities.
We also, as usual, have for sale our range of books on all aspects of the history of Berry and the surrounding region.
HELP NEEDED FOR OUR WORLD WAR I DISPLAY
This display is about the participation of the people of Berry in WWI (see below).
We have a substantial collection donated from the community in the museum which is being used for the display.
However if you have any relevant information, photographs or artifacts that you would be prepared to lend or let us scan we would be very
grateful to be able to include it in the display.
BERRY AND WORLD WAR I
The second session of this display, which presents the history of WWI and the participation in it of the people of Berry, will be up by the middle
of February. It will be on show until the end of April 2015.
It deals with the stories of more of the boys from Berry who enlisted during the war (the earliest enlisters’ stories were given in the first session
of this display) and the parts of the war that occurred in Egypt, Gallipoli and the Western Front.
So over the next three months come into the museum to see the second instalment of this fascinating story from Berry’s past.

PARALYSIS TICK
CONTROL UPDATE
We’re really excited to announce the first new flea and tick
product in a long time - NexGard. NexGard is an oral tablet
that will provide effective flea and tick prevention for an entire
month – this will be more convenient and more cost effective!
In addition the product cannot be washed off so it is ideal for
dogs that live in coastal areas that love to swim. NexGard works
differently to the previously available products and should
revolutionise the way we manage these diseases. All of our staff
have had extensive training on this product, so please come in
and have a chat about how it works and what to expect!
www.facebook.com/berryvetclinic
Grooming with pick up and drop off
We are also pleased to announce the opening of a
grooming service at Berry Vet Clinic. Style cuts will be
available on Mondays and we will offer a pick up and drop
off service to all clients in Shoalhaven Heads and Berry.
Standard grooming will be available on any weekday but
keep an eye out for some great hair cuts getting around
town. Monday will also see us offer a free drop off service
for medications and food - Make sure you get your orders
in before 3pm on the Friday.

David Berry Hospital Auxiliary
Welcome to 2015 from the David Berry Hospital Auxiliary.
We hope you all had a happy and safe Christmas and we
wish you all the best for 2015.
We would like to acknowledge a few Ladies who have given us a lot of
support over a long time.
Mrs Betty Ireland. Mrs. Ireland joined the Auxiliary in 1980/81 and was
made a In House Life member of the Berry David Hospital Auxiliary
in 2006 followed in 2007 by a Life Member of the U.H.A. which is a
State wide acknowledgment. Later Mrs. Ireland was made a Patron
of our Auxiliary.
Although Mrs. Ireland doesn’t attend our meetings now because of
her health, she is still a great supporter of our street stalls and our
Easter egg stall each year.
Mrs. Ruth Wheatley. Mrs. Wheatley joined our Auxiliary in 1979/80.
Mrs. Wheatley doesn’t attend our meetings now because of her health
but is well known for the cooking of her biscuits and her knitted
slippers for all our street stalls.
Mrs. M. Mathers is another Lady who doesn’t come to our meetings
but is always happy to help at any time. Mrs. Mathers joined our
Auxiliary in1978/79.
We would also like to acknowledge the work for our Auxiliary by Ursula.
Again, thank you to all these Ladies for their continued support over
a lot of years.
ON SATURDAY 14TH
MARCH WE WILL HAVE
A BOOK SALE
FOR
YOUR
DIARY
We will not be going around collecting
books, but if you have any, please let us
know and we can let you know regarding
a drop off point. This Sale will be on a smaller
scale than usual because we do not have the members to do the work.
WEDNESDAY 1ST APRIL WE WILL BE HOLDING
OUR ANNUAL EASTER EGG CHICKEN STALL IN
BROUGHTON COURT
Welcome to Mainly Music; this will recommence in
the first term on Tuesday the 3rd February. We start at
10.00am and go through until approximately 11.30 am
each week. The cost is $5.00 per family each time and
we would love you to come along with your children and
join in the fun.
You will find us at Berry Community Church, 8 Schofields Lane Berry
.The children and parents/carers all join in the morning session
with opportunities to sing, dance and play. The children have the
opportunity to learn new songs, movements, language and intellectual
development during these sessions. In a feel-safe environment,
children will attempt new tasks, make mistakes and try again. Music,
with its built in repetitions, add reassurance to the child so that they are
able to predict and anticipate. Children learning a new language often
learn words and concepts faster within a musical song rather than
through purely spoken word. The sessions enhance the development
of all children.
For more information contact Trish Nicholson on
44641693 or 0401 152 820
Our next meetings will be held on Monday 9th February and the 9th
March.

Glenn Kolomeitz
ALP Candidate for Kiama
Glenn Kolomeitz is someone who has great life
experience and will fight for you.
He is a former Police Officer and Australian Army Officer who has served in Afghanistan
(two rotations) and East Timor as a Major.
He is married to a local GP and they have two small children and live in Gerroa.
Glenn has been working hard, listening to the community and their issues and concerns.
He has a vision for our community and our future and he has a plan to implement that
vision.
The liberal Government are making cuts to TAFE and local schools; they have made our
local train services worse and more expensive; they are selling off the poles and wires for
our electricity system (delivering nothing for our region and costing the State a steady
stream of revenue); they are not providing necessary funds for our health system in our
hospitals and our ambulance services.
They are not a good government for our community.
Glenn will fight for better services for our growing region – education, police, public
transport, utilities and more. He will also fight for sustainability and to protect our
natural heritage.
Glenn would like to meet you and hear your views too.
Through a series of street stalls, door knocking, telephoning, discussion groups,
community groups and public meetings as well as through his Facebook page, Newsletter
and web page Glenn is listening and responding to our community.
His vision and his plans for our future will be set out and communicated in the next weeks
leading up to the election at the end of March.
Here are some of the ways you can meet and talk with Glenn: Meet Glenn outside the Berry Pharmacy • Wednesday 28th January 9am to 11am • Tuesday 3rd February 2pm to 4pm

POLICY ANNOUNCEMENTS
To date, Labor has announced a number of policies which we will take to the election,
including the following which are directly relevant to the Kiama electorate:
●
●
●
●
Labor will maintain the boundaries of Gerringong and Gerroa where they currently are. This will preserve the current agricultural belt south of the Elambra Estate, which is vital to the local
agriculture, tourism and local businesses; and will also protect the environment in that area.
(The Liberals, and in particular Gareth Ward, have said they will never allow the boundaries to meet, but have not ruled out development on that land, and have refused to answer how close
they will allow the boundaries to get to each other).
Labor will reinstate Jervis Bay Marine Park’s protected status, and will lift the Liberals’ general moratorium on creating new Marine Parks. This will lead to increased fishing stocks along
the Kiama coastline.
Labor will keep TAFE fees at current 2014 levels; will restrict the amount of funding available for private operators to contest to 30%; and will do away with the Smart & Skilled programme,
which has cut a lot of courses from TAFE, including many apprenticeship programmes.
Labor will ban Coal Seam Gas mining in drinking water catchment areas; and will place a moratorium on all CSG mining in NSW until the Chief Scientist is satisfied that CSG mining has
been proven to be safe.
More policies will be announced over the next weeks leading up to the election.

LANDCARE BERRY
Vegetation along the
New Highway:
It will be noticed that the Princes Highway
realignment project from Toolijooa to Berry
has commenced. The most notable aspect
of this is the removal of many mature trees
from in and, in some places, outside the
new alignment. This is necessary if we are
to rid Berry of the heavy through traffic. The
landscaping that will be part of the project
will include the planting of trees, shrubs
and grasses along the road verges. The
RMS will take responsibility for the ongoing
maintenance of this vegetation. Those areas
disturbed outside the alignment such as
ancillary, storage and stockpile areas will be
restored back to their as found state. The
contractor Fulton and Hogan is responsible
for this work.
The contract for the work requires the planting
to be local native plants propagated from
local seed stock. Many of these plants are not
generally to be found in commercial nurseries.
This is a bold and unique undertaking by the
RMS. Large numbers of seedlings will be
required and these require long lead times to
be produced. The propagation of local native
plants has been going on in Berry and other
areas of the Illawarra for many years but not
at the scale that will meet the needs of this
project. Landcare is has been interested in
this idea of using Native Stock since it has
been engaged in discussions with the RMS
during the planning stage of the project.
Illawarra Landcare is significantly involved
with the contractor in meeting the specified
requirements of the works. Members of
Berry Landcare are also collecting seed and
propagating seedlings. Native plants can be
very difficult to propagate. Collection needs
to be at exactly the right time to be fertile
but not taken by birds. Often propagation
can only start if the seeds are processed in a
very specific way. Anyone interested learning
how and when to gather native seed and how
to propagate them please contact Lyn Clark
(4464 3911).
Weed and Native of the Month:
Asparagus Fern: Not actually a fern. A many
branched perennial herb with a dense
covering of fine pine-like foliage with scattered
spines above ground and a dense mat of
tuberous roots underground. It reproduces
vegetatively and from seed. Flowers are white
or pale pink and fruit is a red globular berry. It
is dispersed by birds and dumping of garden
refuse. A major problem in many areas.
Remove all tubers when digging it out.
Prickly Rasp Fern. Pretty little fern with bright
pinky-orange new growth makes a good
ground cover for a shady site. It will tolerate
full sun and is drought tolerant. Spreads by
underground runners.

BERRY MEN’S SHED
A PROJECT OF THE BERRY UNITING CHURCH
WORKING TOGETHER FOR A BETTER BERRY
Members of the Shed, along with representatives of Fulton Hogan, and MP Gareth Ward at the
handing over of the first consignment of 20 nesting boxes.
In December, members of the Berry Men’s Shed handed over the first consignment of nesting
boxes to Fulton Hogan who are responsible for the construction of the by-pass.
The nesting boxes are designed to house animals that will be displaced as part of the roadwork
construction.
Shed secretary, Richard Wiseman, said Fulton Hogan approached the Shed to ask them to
construct 45 nesting boxes for a variety of animals. There are 14 different types of animals
all requiring different size nesting boxes. Fulton Hogan’s Andrew McRae said that this was an
opportunity for us to engage with the community.
Local member Gareth Ward also attended the handing over and said that it was a successful
story for the environment and the community. The Shed is working on the next order of nesting
boxes due for completion at the end of February.
The Shed held its Christmas Party in December at the Berry Bowling Club where Chairman
Peter Johnstone bestowed awards to long serving members George Gray and Allan Armstrong
along with Grahame Hepper. The major award, the Tardis trophy, was awarded to John Winlaw
for his consistent attendance and work ethic during the year. The party was attended by over
60 members and guests.
Once again the Berry Men’s Shed will be sponsoring the Woodwork section at the Berry Show
and we welcome as many entries as possible.
Our first health talk will be held on Thursday 19th March as part of Seniors week and our guest

BERRY MEALS ON WHEELS
Berry Meals on Wheels really started back in
the mid to late 1970’s with local church ladies
serving a meal to people in need in Berry.
Then a few ladies went out to Shoalhaven
Heads MOW and brought
Meals back to Berry for a few in need. Then
in 1985 Berry Meals on Wheels was able
to collect meals from David Berry Hospital
Monday till Friday then and still we are now
receiving hot meals from Berry Masonic
Village Kitchen Monday to Friday, with frozen
meals if necessary able to be collected from
Nowra Meals on Wheels for weekends.
How lucky we are in Berry to have Volunteers
who come to our aid when needed to Be on
our Delivery List.
If you know someone who is in need and is
frail, aged or disabled give our Coordinator
John a call 44 641 604

“Life is like a bicycle – to keep your balance you must keep on moving”
− ALBERT EINSTEIN
Our Quiz master extraordinaire Sandra
prepared a trivia quiz to start our minds
a-thinking about the Anzacs as we celebrated
Australia Day. This year will be one of many
memories as we search our history in World
War I.
Our aprons and food gloves were needed yet
again as our members prepared sandwiches
for the many hungry mouths attending the
Berry Show. Our members did not put away
their cooking bowls and aprons or their
needles and thread as we needed a full
stocked Stall at the Berry Show. A big thank
you to all our willing ladies who help make
our stalls the success that they are.
The positives of our new year were tinged with
great sadness as we learned of the passing of
our loved International Officer Mrs Lorraine
van der Lubbe on December 30th after a
short illness. She will be remembered for her
tireless work in the international field and her
involvement with the Berry School children.
We celebrated her life with an afternoon tea
at the Berry CWA rooms. She will be sorely
missed.
A new year has begun and we
now move onto the challenges,
hopes and aspirations of the
new year ahead. 2015!
What will it bring?
The year 2104 ended with a most successful
street stall, one that the Berry community
and its many visitors supported. Thank you.
Congratulations to our two raffle winners –
Jackie Cooper 1st prize and Louise Miller 2nd
prize. Congratulation also to our members
who received certificates for the various Land
Cookery competition. We finished our year
with a succulent and delicious meal at the
Nowra TAFE Destiny Cafe.
Heather Darlington from the Bendigo Bank
came to our last meeting for the year 2014
and presented the Berry CWA Branch
with a $2000 cheque to help towards our
renovations. We were most appreciative and
thankful for their generous gift.
Congratulations to the following young
people who are grandchildren of Berry CWA
members in receiving monetary awards and
scholarships to help further their education:
Bianca Morgan to further her education
as a third year student in Hospitality at
Nowra TAFE
(Cynthia Druitt Grant)
Mia Wright-Miller and Jackson Bamber
receiving the Ing Family Berry Lions
Scholarship.

LAST YEAR
With another year so quickly upon us, I firstly
wish to thank all those generous folk who
supported our last street stall, all I can say is
the total was amazing. Thank you once again.
When we tell folk we are raising money for the
leprosy mission a general reaction is, ‘Oh I
thought that was only in the bible?’ or comments
similar. There are many unanswered questions
in the field of leprosy, from the mechanism
of transmission, to the reasons why some
people get severe nerve damage despite good
treatment, to the best ways to reduce the stigma
of leprosy in a community. In order to address
these questions TLM has a research strategy
which tries to prioritise some of the topics and
states how they will manage research.
Because research is complex, requiring a wide
variety of resources and skills, TLM collaborates
with universities and other research groups.
TLM is able to contribute access to many
people affected by leprosy through the
programmes around the world. TLM plays a
central role in global research such as the effort
to monitor and prevent the emergence of drug
resistance in leprosy, the prevention on leprosy
in contact through chemoprophylaxis and /or a
vaccine, and the research for better treatments
for leprosy reactions. Research on local issues
is also important, such as why people delay
for months or years before seeking treatment;
often local traditions and beliefs are crucial in
answering such questions. TLM seeks to be a
learning organisation, in which research helps
us improve the way we serve people affected
by leprosy.
If you would like to become a member of our
group in Berry we would love your support. Our
first meeting for the year is on Thursday the
26th February at 1.30pm, held at 17 Gwenda
Ave., Berry. For more in information please
contact Trish Nicholson on 44641693.

Generous donations were also made during the evening in support of Cambodian
Dalin Eng, who, as a sole teacher in the Dump in Phnom Penh is struggling to educate
some of the children living there. Zontian Rosalie Fletcher told of her heart-wrenching
meeting with this brave young woman who lives in unimaginably poor conditions.
AND THIS YEAR
Shaping up well already with the Big Breakfast planned to celebrate International Women’s Day,
again to be held at Mountain Ridge Winery on Saturday, March 7, commencing at 8.30am. Last
year this event sold out very quickly, so don’t be disappointed, book and pay ASAP with Carole
Cassidy on 0408 997 780 using BSB 082 435 A/C139 7013.
Members and friends (including the blokes) will be most welcome, and we promise some
interesting life stories from our guest speakers, great entertainment and a delicious breakfast.
WARDROBE CLEARING TIME
Yes, get ruthless – clear out those unwanted clothes from your wardrobes ready for the Zonta
Pre-Loved Clothing Sale coming up on Sunday, 3rd May, under the Showground Grandstand. Any
clean clothing in good condition is welcome, and that includes jewellery, shoes and handbags.
This event has proved to be a very successful fund-raiser for our various good works, so your
donations would be greatly appreciated. For arrangements for collection, please contact Mary
Seelis on 4464 1191.
