Call will fly Terrapin will tour their new production Feathers to over 14,000 Tasmanian students from June to November. Terrapin Artistic Director Sam Routledge said it’s always an exciting point in the year when Terrapin gets ready to tour Tasmanian schools. “We reach students in some of the most regional and remote parts of the state, which we see as such an important part of our community impact work,” Mr Routledge said. With the support of the Premier’s Fund for Children and Young People, the tour will visit both Flinders Island and King Island for the first time. Feathers tells the story of a feathery-tailed ferret who has been abandoned by his pet shop owners, and who embarks on a bird-filled quest to find his flock. The production features eight new puppets ranging from person-sized ferret Feathers to a tiny jewel-coloured rainbow bee-eater. All puppets were made in Terrapin’s Derwent Park workshop by a team of specialised Tasmanian makers, led by Bryony Anderson. Terrapin is running a fundraising campaign this end of financial year to support the ongoing operations of the school touring program. “It’s critical that we can keep ticket prices affordable for schools, even as our costs increase with the cost of living,” Mr Routledge said. Supporters can donate on the Terrapin website www.terrapin.org.au Terrapin has been touring Tasmanian schools since its inception in 1981, visiting over 180 schools in the past 15 years and reaching up to 15,000 children annually.

Terrapin launched their Tasmanian school tour program at their Salamanca Art Centre workshop on June 13, which features the new production Feathers featuring Narrator Jem Nicholas, Puppeteers Noah Casey and Ellen Roe and Bella Young as Feathers the ferret.

Jordan began his ambulance career as a paramedic in 2008 with NSW Ambulance. He has performed various leadership roles and joined Ambulance Tasmania in 2022, then was appointed chief executive the following year. Ambulance Tasmania said in a statement that his thought leadership represented an innovative, evidence-based and transformational approach to leading ambulance organisations to achieve the fullest potential of frontline team members. Laura joined Ambulance Tasmania in 2015 after two years with Ambulance Victoria and has been instrumental in the progression of several projects that have changed how care is delivered within Tasmania - including the Palliative Care Project and the Diabetes Pathway Project. She works in her own time to support graduate paramedics through their developmental milestones and is looked upon as a clinical champion within the field of paramedicine. “Congratulations to Jordan and Laura for this achievement and for the incredible work they continue to do at Ambulance Tasmania,” the Ambulance Tasmania statement said. The Ambulance Service Medal was awarded to Ambulance Tasmania Chief Executive Jordan Emery and Paramedic and Manager Clinical Practice - Emergency Medical Services Laura Butler as part of the King’s Birthday Honours recently. (PS) Lifesaving dedication The Hobart Dogs Home recently received the news that their dog food sponsorship has ended. “This sponsorship has been a lifeline for us, covering almost all our feeding costs for the last 20 years and will have a huge impact on our already increasing operational expenses,” a representative of the Hobart Dogs Home said. “Many of our dogs are on specialised diets to assist them with health, injury and age-related issues. “Funding the food that our dogs desperately need could add up to an extra $150,000 each year on top of already rising costs. “The adoption fee of each dog doesn’t come close to covering the actual cost of operating, desexing, vaccinating, microchipping and providing a specialised diet to each dog.” For the health and well-being of the dogs, many of them are on specialised diets and therefore require different types of dog food. Shelter dogs need these specialised diets as they often experience heightened stress and are recovering from injuries, surgeries or trauma. “If we didn’t provide the appropriate nutrition and support to dogs like Twirl, she would likely not have survived,” the representative said. “Not long after being born at the Hobart Dogs’ Home, Twirl’s growth slowed, and she started losing weight. “Her gums became pale, and she developed anaemia. “She needed help. “Our amazing vet team advised a specialised diet and rest in foster care. “After a few months of treatment and eating the right food, Twirl thrived. “Today she is well-loved in a family home, enjoying the life she may not have otherwise had the opportunity to live.” The Hobart Dogs Home is running a fundraising campaign to help them cover this expense. Dog shelter short on meals The greater Hobart Mayors issued a statement on June 13 calling on the Tasmanian Government to urgently address the concerns outlined by the Federal Minister for the Environment and Water Tanya Plibersek regarding the Macquarie Wharf redevelopment. “We’ve been on the record calling for these wharf upgrades for several years,” the statement said. “The negotiations between TasPorts and the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) have been moving at a glacial speed and it is well passed time for action and certainty. “This is a significant economic threat to Hobart and Tasmania, and we urge the Premier to pick up the phone today and find a solution.” The statement was released after Minister Plibersek wrote to Premier Jeremy Rockliff recently to express concerns over the estimated costs of the redevelopment of Macquarie Wharf 6. Ms Plibersek quoted TasPorts estimate of more than $515 million over 30 years as being 14 times more than the Commonwealth currently pays and said there had been no costings provided to back up this request. The combined mayors statement said it is critical that we work to maintain greater Hobart as a world-class science and research city, ensuring it remains the focal point for international, national and private Antarctic and science research organisations and institutes. “As Mayors we recognise the enormous importance of the Antarctic sector to all four of our municipalities and the greater Hobart economy and support the ambition for Hobart to become the world’s leading Antarctic gateway,” they said. “The Macquarie Wharf redevelopment is absolutely crucial to this ambition.” Independent Member for Clark Andrew Wilkie spoke on Parliament House Lawns on Thursday, June 13 about the impasse between the Federal and State Governments over port facilities for the RSV Nuyina, as well as the possibility of Hobart losing its status as the key international gateway to the Antarctic and southern ocean. “Media reports that the Federal Government has written to the State Government and warned them that the icebreaker will be based elsewhere if Tasmania doesn’t fix the Hobart port is devastating news,” Mr Wilkie said. “Australia’s Antarctic Program is crucial to Tasmania and the basis for many hundreds of science and other jobs. “To lose all that because of State Government incompetence and TasPorts’ attempt at price gouging would be a shocking failure of governance, a dreadful blow to the Tasmanian economy and entirely unforgiveable. “The ball is squarely in the State Government’s court because the Federal Government has committed $240 million to Macquarie Point and wants the icebreaker to remain berthed in Hobart.” Shadow Minister for the Environment, Fisheries and Forestry Jonno Duniam also issued a statement on June 13 that negotiations like these should not be conducted through the media. “While there is no justification for any government agency, State or Federal, to mishandle something so important, there is absolutely no excuse for a Federal Minister to so blatantly put at risk something so important to our state and the city of Hobart,” Mr Duniam said. Is the Antarctic gateway closing? Planning has commenced to deliver a new $15 million Public Diagnostic Breast Care Centre in Hobart. The Minister for Health, Mental Health and Wellbeing Guy Barnett announced the new site on June 11. “The new centre will be located at Level 8 of the Liverpool St Clinics, with planning well underway as we work towards delivering the service by the end of 2025,” Minister Barnett said. “This new service will increase capacity, reduce wait times and ease the financial impact on Tasmanians requiring these services. “It will make a significant difference to the health and wellbeing of Tasmanians, addressing the issue that GP-referred diagnostic imaging is currently only available in the private sector.” The service will be a ‘one-stop-shop’ providing a multi-disciplinary team approach to treatment - involving and supporting patients in decisions about their care. Engagement of the lead architect is in progress, with design planning to start by the end of June. Minister for Women Madeleine Ogilvie said that this facility would make an enormous difference for Tasmanian women. “We recognise the growing need to meet demand for these services, through the establishment of this new Public Diagnostic Breast Care Centre we are enabling greater access to thousands of Tasmanian women,” Minister Ogilvie said. “I am incredibly pleased that we have acted swiftly to get this facility established, providing the vital healthcare that Tasmanian women need sooner.” Full design work is expected to be completed by late November, with a public tender planned to be advertised by December to engage the construction contractor.

Tony’s obsession with trains and steampowered things began in childhood, starting with a fascination with the steam ferry across the Derwent. This fascination grew into a career with the Tasmanian Government Railways and a lifetime of volunteering in railway heritage. A former train driver, Tony is the President of the Tasmanian Association of Tourist Railways, a founding member of the Derwent Valley Railway, has volunteered on the Don River Railway and became involved in preserving trains and trams when the last Hobart tram stopped in 1960. Tony has a long association with pipe bands on a state and national level. He commenced his pipe band career learning the snare drum when he joined the Tasmanian Irish Pipe Band in September 1961. Over the years he worked his way up to Drum Sergeant and then to Drum Major Until the group disbanded in 1976. From there he moved to the Hobart Highland Pipe Band (later the City of Hobart Highland Bang on Drum Major Mr Anthony Coen joined recipients at the Kings Birthday Honours celebration recently to receive his Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for service to railway preservation and to pipe band music.

In 2009, Tony transferred to the Tasmania Police Pipe Band as a full member after a few years as a guest player. He was soon elevated to Assistant Drum Major and appointed full Drum Major in 2014. The Tasmanian Hospitality Association (THA) recently backed the Tasmanian Government’s proposed legislation to protect the state’s frontline workers. The Sentencing Amendment (Presumptive Sentencing for Assaults on Frontline Workers) Bill marks a significant step in safeguarding the wellbeing of individuals who are essential to the community. THA chief executive Steve Old said the Government’s decisive action emphasised the importance of a safe working environment for all Tasmanians. “Every worker deserves to feel safe and protected at their place of work,” Mr Old said. “The proposed legislation underscores the Government’s commitment to ensuring that those who provide critical services, including hospitality workers, are not subjected to violence or serious harm. “Bartenders, waitstaff and all hospitality employees are integral to Tasmania’s vibrant tourism and hospitality sector. “This legislation sends a strong message that violence against them will not be tolerated. “There have been too many recent occurrences of assaults towards hospitality workers, especially in bottle shops around the state.” The THA said in a statement that hospitality workers play a vital role, especially in light of the challenges faced during the pandemic and the ongoing cost of living crisis. “As a community, we must support and protect those who contribute so significantly to our daily lives and our economy,” Mr Old said. “The introduction of this bill will provide a proactive measure that aligns with our association’s advocacy for the rights and safety of hospitality workers. “We applaud the Government’s initiative and look forward to its swift passage through Parliament.” Protecting workers non-negotiable From front page, Terrapin recently launched their Tasmanian School Tour feature, Feathers featuring Feathers the ferret and a cast of vibrant support characters.

4 hobart weekly news I TUESDAY, 18 JUNE, 2024 H21934 Faulls Shoes in Centrepoint is celebrating 25 years of trading in Hobart. The company originally started over 110 years ago in Ballarat, Victoria. The family-owned company traded with just one store for almost 80 years before an opportunity arose to expand to Tasmania where they now have one shop in Hobart and one in Launceston. The company also has three other stores in Victoria. Faull’s Marketing Manager Polly Stringer, daughter of the current owners, said the store tries to specialise in quality but affordable family footwear. “We try to cater for most age groups with leather footwear from well-known brands,” Polly said. “Faulls also have a wide range of exciting styles for the younger market with Converse, Dr Martens and Skechers. “We love to be able to help people, particularly with trouble feet and our comfort ranges are very special. “In terms of ranges, we believe we set ourselves apart from the chain stores or big department stores by offering a more wholesome range, with attention to detail and colour. “We have a broad range of brands but in comfort have focused on Tesselli, which are all made in Europe from the most soft and beautiful leathers. “Add to the mix Ara, Josef Seibel and Rieker and it’s a wonderful collection.” Faulls Shoes also has a great range of men’s shoes and boots for all occasions with Florsheim, Hush Puppies and Ferracini just some of the featured brands. Polly mentioned how lucky the company had been to have so many loyal staff. “Our current Manager Deb has been with us for probably five years but has been in retail in Hobart for many more years and is so well known,” said Polly. “Our last manager Sheryl Lovell joined the company when we first opened and stayed for over 20 years. “We just find the Tassie staff to be so open and friendly and they treat our customers with so much respect, take their time and that has helped to build a really loyal following.” The store was fully renovated in 2019 and today is a standout within the centre for its open clean, modern style which showcases all of their ranges. The displays are always fresh with the latest showcasing their 25 years in Tasmania. “We feel blessed that the Tasmanian people have accepted our company and ranges so well and look forward to maintaining that relationship for many years to come,” Polly concluded. The Winter Feast is expected to provide a significant economic boost to the city, reinforcing Hobart’s reputation as a premier winter destination. The City of Hobart said tourism contributes over $1 billion annually to the economy and events like the Winter Feast are pivotal in driving this economic activity, attracting tourists and locals alike to spend in the city. Hobart Lord Mayor Anna Reynolds said winter tourism was a big part of the capital’s economy. “The Winter Feast is more than just a celebration of food and culture; it is a vital economic driver for our city,” Cr Reynolds said. “By attracting thousands of visitors, it supports local businesses and creates employment opportunities.” The Winter Feast will feature 75 stallholders, including 25 newcomers from across Tasmania, showcasing the best of local produce and culinary creativity. Visitors will be treated to savory delights such as spit roast pork buns, neo-Nepalese goat curry and sweets like milk and honey doughnuts and giant warm cookies. City Economy Portfolio Chair Alderman Louise Bloomfield said the feast had a broad positive impact on the community. “The economic benefits of the Winter Feast extend far beyond the event itself,” Ald Bloomfield said. “Financial data from the 2023 event estimates a $54 million festival economic impact on local hospitality and tourism organisations from both local and interstate guests. “Over 46,000 tickets were sold to the Winter Feast in 2023.” Winter tourism a financial boon The SBS documentary series Hunt for Truth: Tasmanian Tiger launched at the State Cinema in Hobart on June 11. The documentary follows Tim Noonan as he investigates the ultimate wildlife mystery to find out if the Tasmanian tiger, the world’s rarest, most elusive animal, is gone for good or just very good at hiding. Tim Noonan was joined at the launch by Minister for the Arts Madeleine Ogilvie and interviewees and experts featured in the series. The Hunt is on Associate Researcher Kenji Sabine, Professor Barry Brook, Dr Jessie Buettel, Minister for the Arts Madeleine Ogilvie, Tim Noonan and Tigerman at the launch event for Hunt for Truth: Tasmanian Tiger. (PS Tom Roberts) Queens Domain was voted Hobart’s favourite park in a recent survey conducted by the City of Hobart. City of Hobart Lord Mayor Anna Reynolds said she was not surprised. “It’s Hobart’s equivalent of the famous Central Park in NYC,” she said. “Both were created around the same time in the mid-1800s as special parks for the public in the centre of the city.” Central Park is bigger, at 341 hectares, while Queens Domain is 230 hectares but it boasts a range of cultural and natural values as well as recreational facilities. It has bush running tracks, nationally significant native grasslands and woodlands that provide habitat for endangered species, it is home to the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, Government House, the Cenotaph and Soldiers Memorial Avenue.
