NOTICE OF ANNUAL
When: 7.00pm, Tuesday, 21 October, 2014
Venue: Large Meeting Room, Waikerie Health
Services, 1 Lawrie Terrace,Waikerie
Business will include presentation of the Annual Report,
Audited Financial Statements, and appointment of
Waikerie Health Advisory Council Members.
Mr Justin Loffle r,
Waikerie and Districts Health Advisory Council Inc.
MP on the case
MEMBER for Chaffey Tim Whetstone
says he will continue to seek State
Government support for a river front
caravan park at Waikerie despite being
disappointed with the response so far.
Mr Whetstone told The River News he
approached Minister for Tourism Leon Bignell
regarding the matter last week, just days after
submitting a petition with 1862 to Parliament.
"He didn't show a lot of interest, so I'm going
to write to him and get a proper response," he
"Once he's got that letter, I'll probably make
a phone call and speak to him directly."
Mr Whetstone had also hoped to speak with
Minister for Regional Development Geoff Brock,
but the Member for Frome was on sick leave.
"My idea is that I lobby both Geoff and Bignell
before approaching the Attorney-General, John
Rau," he said.
"Politics is all about numbers. If I can get
those numbers of support behind the issue, it
adds weight to what we want to see happen."
Mr Whetstone said he also aimed to sit down
with the Waikerie Caravan Park's owners,
Edwards Group of Hotels Pty Ltd, to get an
idea of what their plans were once the existing
facility closes in June next year.
The Edwards Group had planned a $7.2
million redevelopment on the town's river front,
but recently discovered the project would cost
about $1 million more than originally expected.
The redevelopment has been put on hold
indefinitely and is subject to issues of commercial
viability and security of tenure.
Tony Piccolo said it
was one of the most
important days on the
policing calendar, with
services held across
"We pay tribute to
the 61 members of the
South Australian police
force who have paid
the ultimate sacrifice
their duties as police
officers," he added.

BICYCLE SA Annual Tour
participants departed the region on
Sunday after enjoying a nine-day
visit including overnight stays at
Swan Reach, Morgan, Waikerie and
About 180 cyclists -- more than half of
which were from interstate -- and a support
crew camped at local towns as they made
their way from Mannum to Renmark.
Local community groups received
donations for providing catering to
visitors along the way.
The tour included the option of a scenic
route around Waikerie on Tuesday and
Loch Luna cruises, along with dinner at
Banrock Station, at Kingston-On-Murray
Participants Cliff Weier, of Brisbane,
and Derek Hooper, of Adelaide, said they
had been impressed with the decorated
shop fronts along Waikerie's McCoy Street
and Peake Terrace.
Mr Weier told The River News on
Friday that the event was his first time on
a cycling tour after taking up the hobby 18
"My daughter left home and I needed
something to do," he said.
"It's a way to have fun and keep fit."
Mr Weier said he had been particularly
keen to participate when he saw that it was
being held around the Riverland, as he had
previously visited the region.
"I've spent some time in Adelaide and
used to always visit the Riverland," he
Mr Weier said he had appreciated the
catering and other services made available
throughout the tour -- including a mobile
cafe, bicycle repair van, massage therapists
and portable toilets and showers.
"I can't speak highly enough of the
volunteers and the organisers --- they've
done a great job," he said.
Mr Hooper, who has been a cyclist for
many years after starting as a commuter,
was also on his first Annual Tour but had
previously participated in the Outback
While he had been to the Riverland
before, Mr Hooper said this was his first
time experiencing it from a bicycle.
"You've got more time to see it all,"
Mr Weier echoed his fellow cyclist's
"It's all about the sights and smells,"
he said. "You can't smell a citrus block
from a car."
