New boating guide highlights safety changes on Walpole and Nornalup Inlets
Speed restrictions and improvements to navigation aids
will increase safety on the popular Walpole and
Nornalup Inlets. Department of Transport (DoT)
Marine Safety Operations Director Ray Buchholz said
the improvements were part of a package of changes
flowing from a comprehensive twelve month aquatic
use review focussing on the Walpole and Nornalup
Inlets and associated waterways.
“Increased use of these waterways for various purposes
prompted the review which has been undertaken in
consultation with the Shire of Manjimup, relevant
Government agencies and user groups,” Mr Buchholz
said. “The resulting Walpole and Nornalup Inlets
Aquatic Use Plan balances the needs of water users, the
recreational boating community and commercial
operators now and into the future.
“The changes address a number of safety issues and
clearly define boundaries for aquatic activity reducing
confusion and conflict among users of the waterways
which are an important community asset.”
The changes are detailed in DoT’s new free boating
guide for Walpole and include:
 Reduction of 8 Knot restricted speed areas to 5
knots;
 A new 8 knot restricted speed area at the entrance to
Nornalup Inlet; and
 Introduction of new navigation aids and
synchronised rhythmic lighting to current aids to
assist navigation at night.
The marker upgrade is part of the $40,000 Walpole
Navigational Enhancement Project for 2012/13 which
is scheduled to begin next week.
Mr Buchholz said in addition to the new boating guide,
new signage would be installed and local officers
would conduct on-water patrols as part of the education
campaign reinforcing the new arrangements.
For more information about the changes contact DoT’s
Great Southern Office on (08) 9892 7312 or visit the
office or www.transport.wa.gov.au/imarie for a copy of
the new boating guide.

The Walpole Primary School held their ANZAC Day
Ceremony on Friday the 19th of April at 2:15pm. This
was due to ANZAC Day falling during the first week
of school holidays. Unfortunately no veterans made the
service but roughly 30 parents along with teachers and
children attended. An informative introduction
recognising the meaning of ANZAC Day was given by
the 6/7 class. Along with the tradition of the flag
lowering and raising, one minute silence was held and
Wreaths were laid
on behalf of the

Parents. The school
choir sang Flanders

Walpole Primary

commended on its

‘Pate’s Patch’
27-28 April
Don’t miss the seven kilometres of fascinating
walking trails on the slopes of this magnificent Mount
Shadforth property owned by retired UWA biologist
John Pate.
Many interesting indigenous and ornamental plants
surround an old settler’s cottage on the edge of tall karri
forests in this intriguing Denmark garden.
The house overlooks rock gardens, ponds and a
vegetable patch; while walking trails of varying length
and difficulty traverse the slopes of Mount Shadforth on
this 60 hectare property. “In 1992 we discovered an
abandoned 1926 settler’s wooden cottage on a nearby
farm, bought it and had it moved to a paddock on our
property. After extensive repairs and additions it was
ready for us we moved permanently to Denmark on
retirement in 2002,” says John.
With the cottage in place, he and his wife (now
deceased) set about developing a half-hectare garden
from the surrounding paddock. “The shelter-belts and
orchard have since grown prodigiously and the
rockeries, herbaceous borders and wetlands are densely
clothed in vegetation,” adds John. “Especially pleasing
has been the accompanying invasion of the cottage
garden by local birds, insects, reptiles, frogs and native
mammals. Many now breed in the garden.”
Developing the walking trails was a mammoth task
but one John found richly rewarding. Whenever he
removed seedlings of native species recruited in the
middle of track surfaces, John transplanted them to the
cottage garden or gave them to friends. “Provided this is
done in winter or early spring the seedlings usually
survive, enabling me to learn which species of the
forest, swamps and outcrops would be likely to survive
in a garden such as mine. Some of these may well have
been brought into gardening for the very first time,” he
adds.
Extras include musical entertainment, hand-fed birds
and nature books for sale.

Your voice can help the State prepare for bushfire
How Western Australians prevent, prepare for,
respond to and recover from bushfire will be examined
in a new online survey that has been launched by the
Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES).
People have the opportunity to take part in the survey
that seeks their opinion on the State’s current level of
bushfire preparedness as well as their concerns, stories
and suggestions.
This information will be used to shape the
Department’s current bushfire programs. These
programs are aimed at improving the community’s
understanding of bushfire risk and to increase levels of
bushfire preparedness.
DFES Community Engagement Director Suellen Shea
said the survey was one way the community could
participate with every suggestion and comment to be
reviewed. “As we are coming to the end of the
bushfire season now is a good time to reflect on what
has happened in the past, what we have learnt and how
we all can improve for the future.” Ms Shea said.

people to help
enhance our work for
the benefit of the
entire State. Results
from the survey will
form the basis of our planning and will help the
community prevent, prepare for and cope in an
emergency.
In January, about 300 North West residents took part
in the Department’s first online survey that explored
the effects of cyclones and floods. This new survey is
the first for bushfire. Designed to take 15 to 20
minutes, the survey includes questions on how people
would like to be informed of bushfire, and seeks their
opinions on bushfire preparedness, response, resilience
and support in the community. People have until 3
May 2013 to complete the survey.

Independent Living in Walpole
Independent Living in Walpole
Maintaining your independence is one very important part of aging gracefully.
With so much emphasis on accessibility, hidden dangers and above all else
safety in and around the home these days, the Independent Living Caravan’s
bid to make everyday living easier was a great opportunity for local people of
all ages to find out just what is available to assist them in all kinds of
situations. Despite the timing clashing with a planned Walpole Seniors outing,
the caravan was well attended.
The Independent Living Centre Caravan was stationed in the rear car park
of the Community Resource Centre from 10am to 3pm last Wednesday where
ILC Occupational Therapist Emma-Kate Codyre was available to help people
make informed choices about equipment and aids.
As part of its country service, the ILC provides free expert information and
advice to help people choose and access equipment and technology to enable
them to better manage tasks at home, school, work and in the community.
People of all ages and abilities may benefit from the service, including a

Maintaining your independence is one very important part of aging gracefully.
With so much emphasis on accessibility, hidden dangers and above all else
safety in and around the home these days, the Independent Living Caravan’s
bid to make everyday living easier was a great opportunity for local people of
all ages to find out just what is available to assist them in all kinds of
situations. Despite the timing clashing with a planned Walpole Seniors outing,
the caravan was well attended.
The Independent Living Centre Caravan was stationed in the rear car park
of the Community Resource Centre from 10am to 3pm last Wednesday where
ILC Occupational Therapist Emma-Kate Codyre was available to help people
make informed choices about equipment and aids.
As part of its country service, the ILC provides free expert information and
advice to help people choose and access equipment and technology to enable
them to better manage tasks at home, school, work and in the community.
People of all ages and abilities may benefit from the service, including a
farmer who experiences back pain when driving a vehicle; a child having
difficulty holding a spoon; or an elderly person feeling unsafe when standing in the shower.

Contributing to one’s community is important – WHO have defined mental health as-“A state of
wellbeing in which the individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of
life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community”’

There is a trend within the volunteering community to wring our hands in despair and wail “there’s no-one to
carry on our cause”. Many volunteers were born in the 1940’s, where our values of service were instilled
through adversity in economics and lifestyle. The 1960’s was a decade of high hope for ‘what could be in our
society,’ progressing with a sense of unlimited possibility in The Age of Aquarius. The 1980s brought a trend
for narcissism with many focussing on ‘what about me?’ and self gratification. Coming together in a group
with common interests and needs creates a sense of hope that we can overcome the challenges and share in
the effort of conquering adversity.
Now more than ever creating a sense of Hope for the future generations is paramount. I wish to celebrate the
young people within our community who volunteer their time to create ‘a better place for their being here’
through service to the community. To share in their growth and development is an honour to be cherished.
Kelly Burton and Russell Hill are vibrant young parents with a strong desire to care for our community.
Despite very demanding individual schedules they responded to the plea for St Johns Ambulance when our
local sub-centre neared a crisis as members of our aging Team were retiring. In May 2010 our Team had 12
members, five have transferred or retired and today we total 9 members including Kelly and Russell.
In celebrating the volunteers we also acknowledge the partners and children whose daily routines may be
affected at very short notice. We offer a heartfelt Thankyou to Neil, Bree-anna & Tia Burton and Kasey,
Connor, Matilda & Leah Hill for supporting the service given by your parents. The benefit to you, is that
values are passed on through the generations, and through their role-modelling strong values of service you
are our next generation of volunteers. Well done!
Through volunteering with St Johns Ambulance Kelly and Russell have developed their ability to care for and
relate to others in a dynamic manner within a robust training program provided by the organization. Each has
unique skills in local knowledge, competency in driving an emergency vehicle and commitment to a Team
approach; qualities proving valuable in time-critical moments in response to a call for an emergency. Kelly
and Russell represent Hope for the future where members of our Team can retire from the more physically
demanding roles to mentoring positions, in the knowledge that the service is in competent hands. Well done!

Recycled water for the South West
Reading the headlines in the Donnybrook
Bridgetown Mail last week one could be forgiven for a
few moments of panic. An article caught my eye titled,
‘Wastewater on menu for South West’, followed by the
statement; “Recycled waste water could be a future
drinking water option for the South West after
successive dry winters.” Upon reading the entire article
and armed with more information it could well be great
news for arid areas.
Water Corporation South West Region manager
Scott Moorhead said the corporation carried out water
recycling at every wastewater treatment plant in the
Warren-Blackwood Region, with the water currently
being used for irrigation of local sports grounds, golf
courses and tree farms.
Wastewater Treatment Plants at Bridgetown and
Nannup are currently using 100 per cent of the
wastewater produced as recycled water to irrigate the
Bridgetown Golf Course and a tree farm in Nannup.
In 2009, the corporation began a three-year
groundwater replenishment trial at Beenyup.
Groundwater replenishment is the process where
treated wastewater is further treated to drinking water
standards. The trial was completed at the end of last
year. Based on the findings, the Water Corporation is
likely to recommend to government that Perth move to
the first stage of a groundwater replenishment scheme.
April 24th, 2013 — 12
The possibility of using groundwater
replenishment in other suitable parts of
Western Australia, including the Warren
Blackwood and wider south west, depends
on the final assessment of the trial by the
state government.
Mr Moorhead said rainfall in the
Warren Blackwood had been in decline for several
years, culminating in a record-breaking dry winter in
2010 which saw local drinking water storages at
critical levels. “Technically, it would be possible to
implement groundwater replenishment in some parts
of the South West region but this would require further
investigation. Due to the effects of this increasingly
dry climate, the Water Corporation has been working
on a number of projects in the Warren Blackwood area
to secure future water supply. The $25-million project
to more than double the capacity of Millstream Dam to
one billion litres is complete. This dam is the central
water storage for the Bridgetown Regional Water
Supply Scheme which services Bridgetown, Boyup
Brook, Hester, Greenbushes, Balingup, Kirup and
Mullalyup. In addition the Nannup Bore is being used
to supplement Millstream Dam during drought years.
Rainfall is decreasing and will continue to decrease,
according to the Climate Commission and the United
Nation's March Human Development Index report.
Another 10 per cent less annual rainfall in the South
West is expected during the next decade.

Welcome to Walpole Wallopers. Easter is done and dusted and now it’s School
Holidays ! The mum’s will be loving it !
Thank you
Once again our volunteer emergency services have been busy over the Easter period.
I would like to thank those involved in attending Tingleview for the tragic death of
Mr Paul CAPON. His family expressed their deep gratitude to all the volunteers and
nearby neighbours that attended Jacksonii Avenue to assist their brother.
February & March 2013
Police attended 26 complaints over the two months. Reported crime has remained
low except for two reported stealing incidents.
The March and Easter period saw an increase of Police attending Walpole.
For the March long weekend Water Police sent two officers and a vessel in response to
the hugely successful Walpole Regatta.
Walpole was also visited over Easter by officers from the Traffic Enforcement Group
from Perth consisting of two pursuit vehicles and six motorcycle officers.
I haven’t seen a motorcycle cop since I was 12 ! They scared the hell out of me
when I saw them on Nockolds Street. It was like watching an episode of Chips !
Hopefully you were all reasonably unharmed by the extra Police presence as I know the
majority of Walpole residents do the right thing ?
Jason and I stopped 449 vehicles over the period and unfortunately we are still giving
out seatbelt and speeding infringements.
Crime for February and March 2013
 A car was broken into at the ‘Valley of the Giants’ car park after a lock was jemmied
open and the offenders stole $90.00 and a bottle of wine.
Please report all suspicious activity around or near our tourist car parks in the
area.
 Approximately 1200 litres of Diesel was stolen from the DEC yard at Chugg Street.
If you have any information in relation to this stealing please call Walpole Police
or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
Charges preferred for February & March
2 x Driving in Excess of .05 & .08 (Walpole residents !)
4 x No Authority to Drive & Vehicles Seizures (No Walpole residents!)
1x Stealing (Perth resident)
7 x Possession of Cannabis and Smoking Implements & Amphetamine Implement.

Edward Roocke has taken up the challenge and applied to
participate on the 12 day Navigator program happening this
week in the Walpole Wilderness.
Navigator is an overland adventurous program for teens
designed to challenge them physically, mentally,
emotionally and socially. Participants are awarded 10
WACE points and come away with increased selfawareness, compassion, resilience and confidence as well
as gaining skills in effective communication, leadership and
teamwork.
Edward will embark on this journey these school holidays
with 9 other teens from all over WA – from Newman to Walpole! Edward applied for the opportunity and was
granted a scholarship made up of funds from the Plantagenet Financial Services (Mt Barker Bendigo Bank), the
Walpole Op Shop and also the Outward Bound Community Day held last Spring.

Edward Roocke has taken up the challenge and applied to
participate on the 12 day Navigator program happening this
week in the Walpole Wilderness.
Navigator is an overland adventurous program for teens
designed to challenge them physically, mentally,
emotionally and socially. Participants are awarded 10
WACE points and come away with increased selfawareness, compassion, resilience and confidence as well
as gaining skills in effective communication, leadership and
teamwork.
Edward will embark on this journey these school holidays
with 9 other teens from all over WA – from Newman to Walpole! Edward applied for the opportunity and was
granted a scholarship made up of funds from the Plantagenet Financial Services (Mt Barker Bendigo Bank), the
Walpole Op Shop and also the Outward Bound Community Day held last Spring.

Joan Decorates
“Just One
More Cake”
Joan Decorates
“Just One
More Cake”
Submitted by Molly Smith
Well loved former
Tingledale resident of
more that thirty years ago, Joan Eatt, now aged 92
years, recently needed to hunt out her cake icing gear
to decorate just one more wedding cake at the request
of a good friend.
In her years at Tingledale, Joan was responsible for
“dressing” many brides and their maids, as well as
making and decorating their wedding cakes. At the
same time, she was the inaugural president and catering
guru for the BTH Ladies Club and as such organised
the wedding breakfast as well and worked with the
Club in producing the meal.
Joan now lives in Albany and though she gave up
decorating cakes some years back she agreed to my
nostalgic request to decorate the cake I had made for
my daughter’s recent wedding. This she did with a
great deal of pleasure because she was responsible for
making and decorating my daughter’s cake (mother of
the bride) in the seventies!
Note: There are still many of Joan’s friends living in
Walpole and surrounding districts.

Cancer ‘Treatment’ warning issued
Cancer ‘Treatment’ warning issued
Cancer patients are warned not to use Black Salve as an
alternative cancer treatment. The warning follows a
WA Health investigation, which found some West
Australian retailers were promoting it as a treatment for
cancer, while illegally selling and labelling the
dangerous substance as ‘termite repellent’.
“Black Slave contains potent substances that are
controlled under WA’s poisons laws,” WA chief health
office Dr Tarun Weeramanthri said.
“If used without medical guidance, they can be
extremely dangerous.
“The chemicals are highly corrosive and can essentially
burn off layers of the sink and underlying tissue, leading
to severe scarring.”
Dr Weeramanthri said WA Health had received several
recent reports from cancer patients who had suffered
significant injuries following the use of Black Salve.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration advises that
Black Salve is not registered for use in Australia, and is
not safe foe use on consumers.
“Anyone considering a new treatment for a serious
condition such as cancer, should always seek medical
advice rather than try something that has been prompted
by work of mouth or through the internet,” Dr
Weeramanthri said.
“The claims for Black Salve have been around for
decades and amount to dangerous quackery peddled
under a false product name to vulnerable people.”

The absence of an Arts & Culture Strategic Plan
was identified as a key gap in Council’s long term
planning which has been rectified by the development
of a draft plan which is currently being opened up for
public contribution. The development of a Strategic
Plan also responds to the Manjimup Shire’s Customer
Satisfaction Survey which identified 'arts & culture' as
an area poorly serviced and a priority for improvement.
Hsien Harper, Senior Community Development
Officer visited Walpole on Friday last week to meet
with locals to discuss their ideas and comments in
regards to the Draft Arts & Culture Strategic Plan.
Those in attendance raised some interesting thoughts
and gave some differing opinions to those already in
the plan.
Although there were just five representatives from
our community the view points were broad and Hsien
returned to Manjimup with plenty to consider.
Unfortunately timing is always critical. Some key
people from this target group were out of town but
submitted responses will be taken into consideration.

OBA BBQ
OBA BBQ
Claire Peck and Damon Croke of Outward Bound Australia’s
Basecamp in the forests at Tinglewood out of Walpole, together
with the crew, hosted a delightful evening of stories and
comraderie. Tony and Jenny Boyle provided the sheep for the spit
roast and tasty salads were made by the OBA staff.
Elizabeth Gerner’s now famous Earthquake Cake was the order of
the day for dessert.
The evening was enjoyed by around fifty locals who represented
businesses and organisations that support OBA during their
seasons here.
After a drizzly day and one heavy shower of rain, the campfire
created a magnet around which everyone sat and talked well into
the night.
Among those present were Marg and Pete Newton, Elizabeth and
Thomas Gerner, Jenny and Ray Willcox, Geordie Whitwell (who
himself was once an OBA staffer who guided a group to the top of
Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa) Johnno, Ross Seymour, Twenty,
Gary Muir, Jenny and Tony Boyle, Christy Mahoney, Laura
Arrowsmith with Will and Heidi, Stan and Merry.
Claire gave a commentary to an electronic presentation that
showcased some of the season’s highlights—rafting on the inlet,
abseiling high in the tree tops, camping out, sleeping under bivvys
and generally providing to the hundreds of students who undertook
the various courses an opportunity to develop leadership skills.
This week sees the end to the current season with many of the staff
returning to the Eastern States to take up other positions within the
organisation, which is based in Canberra.

‘Sunbird’ sheds light on scale of consumer frauds
‘Sunbird’ sheds light on scale of consumer frauds
In May 2012 the WA Police Major Fraud Squad began
‘Operation Sunbird’ to investigate whether funds
transferred from Western Australia to West Africa
were as a result of ‘request for money’ scams/frauds.
The sophisticated scheme involves organised criminals
connecting with victims online and extensively
grooming them in what appears to be a personal
relationship.
In May 2012 the WA Police Major Fraud Squad began
‘Operation Sunbird’ to investigate whether funds
transferred from Western Australia to West Africa
were as a result of ‘request for money’ scams/frauds.
The sophisticated scheme involves organised criminals
connecting with victims online and extensively
grooming them in what appears to be a personal
relationship.
Police figures compiled between May 2012 and
January 2013 have shown that more than $11million
has been sent to scammers in recent times (some
transactions date back to 2011 even though they were
discovered in the last few months). There are
individual losses of up to $300,000.
In addition to these shocking statistics there are
recorded losses from self-reporting romance fraud
victims who contacted WA ScamNet at Consumer
Protection – that adds up to about $900,000 in a year.
It’s just the tip of the iceberg though – money going to
places like Malaysia, the UK, Canada and the US
hasn’t been examined yet.
Due to the scale of the problem, what started as a
police operation has matured into a long term
partnership and collaboration between the Major Fraud
Squad and Consumer Protection and has been
appropriately renamed ‘Project Sunbird’.
Sunbird is about intervention. Victims who repeatedly
send large amounts of money to places like Ghana,
Nigeria or Sierra Leone are notified that they are
caught up in a fraud. They inevitably find it extremely
difficult to accept that the person they have been
conversing with, over email and phone for months or
sometimes even years, is a con artist. It is useful for
them to hear it from two Government agencies and to
access support offered by both. Further personal
support services for victims are also being sourced.
If you or someone you know has begun a relationship
with a person overseas after meeting on an internet
dating or social networking website, you have not met
them face to face and that person requests money, it
will likely be a fraud. Don’t be fooled by claims that
the cash is needed to help out in an emergency
situation, to fund an investment opportunity or to pay
for an airfare to come to WA. Also be aware that the
person running the fraud may not represent themselves
as being West African; they may pretend to be
Australian, English, American or some other
nationality.
WA ScamNet’s top tips to avoid relationship fraud:
 Do not respond to out-of-the-blue social media
messages from strangers, such as a friend request on
Facebook.
Walpole Weekly
 Be on your guard if someone you meet on an
online dating site asks you to take the conversation
over to email or instant messaging.
 Be wary of overseas-based singles especially if
they confess their love for you after a short amount of
time or want to know about your financial status.
 Remember that just because someone shares
personal photos does not mean the pictures are of them
– scammers often steal other people’s photos.
 Don’t be fooled into thinking that talking to
somebody on the phone means you know them and that
they are who they say there are.
 Be concerned if a person refuses to chat real-time
via a webcam and be mindful that even Skype is not
scammer proof – watch out for pre-recorded videos.
 Alarm bells should ring if someone you do not
know personally (have met face-to-face) requests
money, particularly by a wire transfer service such as
Western Union or even direct bank transfers, which
could be going to an account set up with a stolen
identity.
 Anyone who has lost money in a relationship fraud
should be very wary of secondary scam attempts e.g.
offers of scam compensation from law enforcement or
government agencies.

It was an unfortunate Day on
Sunday for Denmark-Walpole
Magpies. After League had
great start last week they have
been knocked back down. The
U17s started the day with only two goal scorers for
the side Ethan Burton and Jordan Murphy. With
terrible windy weather it was a difficult game with the
team not firing up. Later on in the day ex Royals
player Dylan Morgan kicked two goals along with
Jordan Rolt however this was not enough to win the
game. Lets hope the Boys can get up next week when
they play Mt Barker at home on Saturday. U17s play
at 8:45am, Colts at 10:15am, Reserves at 12 and
