Club hosted a group of
nine European university
students at the new shared
shed facility recently.
The students -- who came
from countries including
Bulgaria, Germany, Denmark
and the Netherlands -- are
undertaking a semester at the
University of Adelaide.
Degrees being studied
included law, anthropology,
marketing and social science.
Rotary Club of Norwood
member Euan Miller, via
Rotary and his business G'Day
SA, has been partnering with
the University of Adelaide
to show the students around
South Australia for the past
Mr Miller helped set up a
library at Waikerie during his
time as the state librarian in
the 1980s, and had previously
students to visit the town.
The most recent visit on
Friday, August 8, was hosted
by the Waikerie Rotary Club
at the new shed's community
meeting room, where a
barbecue meal was served.
Club president Trevor
Quast said the students had
been on their way to Calperum
They also enjoyed water
research projects, tree health
surveys and kayaking while
in the Riverland.
"They were all of the
opinion that Australia seemed
to be an exotic country," he
Mr Quast said he
appreciated Mr Miller's
interest in Waikerie and its
local Rotary club.
"As a Rotarian at Norwood,
he knew the strong focus that
Waikerie Rotary has for youth
affairs," he said.
Mr Quast encouraged
community groups across
the Waikerie area to consider
hiring the community meeting
room for future events, and to
provide feedback to council
about the ongoing use of the
shared shed facility.
"This is a classic example
of what (council) wanted that
room to be used for," he added.

PUBLIC toilets and local footpaths were
among the hot topics at the District Council
of Loxton Waikerie's Disability Access and
Inclusion Plan community meeting recently.
About 14 people attended the community
meeting -- held at Loxton on Thursday, August
21 -- to have their say on a variety of issues facing
residents with a disability.
Director of corporate and community services
Ruth Firstbrook said it was vital for locals to have
their say on the plan.
"We wanted to hear from people with disabilities,
their carers and service providers to find out what
are the issues around access in our community
to facilities and services and what can council
consider," she said.
"It was a really lively meeting, with lots of
A draft report will now be prepared to highlight
the areas needing consideration.
Ms Firstbrook said those who were unable to
attend the meeting could still provide feedback.
"We currently have a survey on our website,"
"We really encourage anybody with a disability,
family members, carers or anybody in the
community to complete it because that gives us
further information about what the issues are for
people with disabilities in our community."
Ms Firstbrook said the report would also go out
to public consultation in coming months.
Locals have until tomorrow to complete the
survey, which can be found online (loxtonwaikerie.
