THE urgent need for a safe bike path from
Rhyll to Cowes has inspired 11 year-old
Fletcher Hill to start a petition.
For Fletcher and his brothers, 13 year-old
Lochie and nine year-old Will to complete
ride to Cowes somewhat safely, they must
ride along the Rhyll Inlet and Conservation
Hill trail, before crossing the road near the
old Rhyll Tip to a bike trail which continues
for approximately 1km.
From there, they must ride along the side
of the road and navigate a dangerous hill
before the footpath links up again near the
roundabout of Coghlan Road and Cowes-
A bike ride that would normally take 20-30
minutes along the road, is quickly pushed
out to a couple of hours.
With the boys’ mother Deb understandably
against the boys riding on the dangerous
road, the boys are forced to rely on lifts from
family members to visit friends or attend
The Cowes Primary School student at-
tended the Bass Coast Shire Council’s ‘Help
shape a better Bass Coast’ community ses-
sion at the Rhyll Hall with the petition on
Wednesday night, which has gathered great
support from locals.
“I want to be able to ride to Cowes but I
can’t go there because the paths are too hilly
and in the back roads, ” Fletcher said.
“I would ride to school and I’d meet my
friends at the roundabout, we ’ve been talk-
ing about that. ”
With no public transport from Rhyll to
Cowes, youth are forced to rely on adults for
Deb said high youth suicide rates in the
area must also be taken into account.
“You constantly hear about suicide and
depression in young people down here, it’s
because kids have nothing to do and they’re
isolated, ” she said.
“You’re isolating them even further because
their stuck in Rhyll, and the road from Vent-
nor is just as dangerous. ”
The boys’ grandmother Wendy Pascoe
“There’s nothing here there’s not even a
little skatepark or anything, they’ve got to go
to Cowes for entertainment, for footy train-
ing, everything. ”
The petition is available to sign at the Rhyll
General Store and Post Office and the family
will be looking to spread the word in coming
RIGHT: Rhyll youngsters Fletcher and
Will Hill show Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela
Rothfield their petition for a bike path from
Rhyll to Cowes at the Rhyll ‘Help shape a
better Bass Coast’ community session at the
Rhyll Hall on Wednesday night. rg020517
ONE of the final ‘Help shape a better Bass
Coast’ community session at Rhyll proved to
be one of the most successful.
Sixty five residents made their thoughts
known at the session, the most of any ses-
Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield said
she was proud of her hometown’s efforts.
“ Rhyll is a very engaged community and
that’s evident by the young boys who started
that petition themselves in regards to the bike
path, ” she said.
“ They obviously have an interest in safety
and they can see the danger of what they face
at Rhyll and it’s wonderful to see. ”
The need for 24-hour medical facilities, a
swimming pool at Phillip Island, new and im-
proved walking and bike paths and a state
high school at Phillip Island or San Remo
were hot topics at the session.
According to Cr Rothfield, medical facilities
have been a strong focus across the whole
“For Wonthaggi people, they want a sub-re-
gional hospital, here they want 24-hour medi-
cal centre and they also want a sub -regional
hospital because it gives us a chance of hav-
ing a satellite operation here, ” she said.
“ I ’ve been to almost all of the community
engagement sessions and have only missed
them when the sessions have clashed.
“ I t’s been really impressive across the whole
shire how wonderful these engagement ses-
sions have been accepted by everybody,
they’ve approached the questions in a positive
way and given us great feedback and ideas.
“ Now it’s going to be a matter of prioritising
and see how we can weave that into the coun-
cil plan and our financial plan. ”
“ I t’s been a really exhausting month for the
councillors racing off to all the different ses-
sions but it’s really proved worth it.
“ This is the broadest and deepest commu-
nity engagement project that the council has
ever embarked on. The stats will be amazing
been. It’s something I’m really proud of that
we’ve been able to do. ”
