competitors in the area for the
Dune2Dune Triathlon at Cape
Paterson the following day, holi-
daymakers and locals all boosted
numbers in last Saturday’s Inver-
loch Park Run to record levels.
The field of 137 was sent on its
way promptly at 8am and it didn’t
take the eventual winner Jonney
Yeates, an elite triathlete, too long
to cover the 5km course in a time
of 16.50 which is equal second
best in 71 such Saturday morn-
Yeates was untroubled in taking
the win, galloping off the line first,
being unheaded throughout and
winning by almost a minute from
second placegetter, Alan Shields,
a first timer at Inverloch.
There was a raft of PBs on the
day with Simon Tu the most nota-
ble, cutting his best time to 18:17
in his 73rd Park Run.
Organisers could not have
been more delighted to break the
record, welcoming 48 first timers
and also with the developing pro -
file of the Inverloch event.
“As well as our regulars, we have
also seen people from other parts
of Australian and even overseas
coming along to run at Inverloch
and tick this one off. We had
someone from overseas the other
week who is trying to do all of the
runs,” said one of the run volun-
Off they go with triathlete Jonney Yeates at the head of the field and ultimately finishing with the equal
second-fastest time in the 71-race history of the event.

time on the committee in varying roles including
pretty compelling argu-

Management of the Too-

when they described the
poor state of their exist-
ing machinery shed.
Even the shire’s direc-
tor of corporate and com-
munity affairs, Jan Mar-
tin was impressed, saying
it sounds as if the existing
shed is a total write- off.
Anyway, with the allo -
cation of $10,000 from
the Community Grants
Program, the group will
be well on the way to get-
ting a new one.
Toora Recreation Re -
Management is made
up solely of volunteers.
They rely heavily on oth-
er community members
to volunteer their time
and skills to keep the
grounds of the reserve
and facilities maintained.
The committee had
the safety and continued
support of their volun-
teers in mind when ask-
ing for funding for a new
machinery shed that is
both functional, time
saving and above all,
safe and secure.
“Their old machinery
shed is in poor condi-
tion. Doors do not op-
erate correctly and it
is difficult to secure
layout for accessing ma-
chinery within the shed
makes usage unsafe and
there is no access to
power or lighting.”
The shed is also poorly
For the playground
project to proceed (also
funded by the shire),
the old machinery shed
needs to be removed.

THE Nyora Recreation Reserve’s last

It’s a pretty good hit rate but with the
remaining items considered beyond the
committee’s current scope, it’s time to
go again and review the plan.
With that in mind, the Nyora Recrea-
tion Reserve Committee has accepted a
grant for $7000 from the South Gipps-
land Shire Council to get on with the
Given the significant changes that are
expected within the reserve and commu-
nity, following the introduction of sewer
connections and proposed residential
development, the task is a pressing one.
“The committee has developed a list
of projects for consideration over the
next 10 years and now seek an inde-
pendent and consultative review of
these and formal consolidation into a
revised Master Plan, ” s aid shire direc-
tor Jan Martin.
The revised Master Plan will provide
the community with a high level of
input, understanding and confidence
in the work of the reserve committee
and will provide guidance for future
committees as to the direction and
priorities of the projects identified in
A Master Plan of this type is also
considered essential when going out
for grants and advocating for funding.
