QUEANBEYAN RIVER FESTIVAL
Queanbeyan City Mayor Tim Overall walks on water.
River Festival will give
patients a smoother ride
Queanbeyan Mayor Tim Overall made a big
splash at the official launch of the inaugural
Queanbeyan River Festival.
Enclosed in an inflatable aqua orb he did his
best to keep steady while barrelling like a
hamster in wheel across the river surface.
While on dry land Cr Overall thanked ACT
Eden Monaro Cancer Support Group who are
joining as a fund-raising partner in the first
River Festival, on Saturday, October 11, and
will co-ordinate the build your own raft race,
a lively highlight of the day.
We have had the Queanbeyan Regatta in the
past, but this will be bigger and better than
ever, he said.
The Festival will be a big day of activities at
Ray Morton Park from 11am to 7pm.
Clearwater Sculpture prize artworks will also be
showcased along the river bank.
There will be raft races, live music, food
stalls, workshops for fishing and aboriginal
basket-making, as well as lots of family-friendly
activities like face painting for the kids.
Cancer Support Group chief executive
Melissa Gardiner said she knew it would be a
great day and hoped the community would get
behind the fund-raising effort to help the 700
patients and their families their organisation
works to support.
On average each year we buy $210,000
worth of gift vouchers, plus we pay electricity
bills and all that too so we have huge costs
involved to look after our patients.
Cancer doesn t discriminate and affects a
whole cross-section of the community, she said.
It would be great to see teams from police,
councillors, the ambulance service even schools
and sports teams getting involved, she said.
The countdown has begun and so far we
have six boats registered.
While he kept bone dry within the inflatable
water ball at the wintry launch, Cr Overall said
he was sure to get stuck in to the river activities
again as soon as the water was warmer.
I have paddled in the past, and I d welcome
the opportunity to paddle again, he said.
I m very interested in the inflatable floating
Flooding subsides, rubbish remains
A southside pocket of land subjected to years of
dumped rubbish and stagnated flooding has
been granted a reprieve.
But almost two decades of compounding
trash is yet to be cleared and minor flooding
A spokeswoman for Minister for Territory
and Municipal Services Shane Rattenbury said
a drain had been cleared to improve water flow
at the area and a fence installed to restrict
She said regular inspections had been
conducted, including on Friday, August 1.
Canberra Equestrian Centre co-owner Jorgen
Hauberg, the site s closest neighbour, said the
fence had stopped hoons having burnouts on the
site and removed most of the water.
However, he said stockpiles of rubbish
needed to be removed and the remaining flood
"They ve drained it but it s not enough for all
the water to drain out because there is a shallow
area inside the fence -- it needs to be filled with
some decent matter," he said.
"You can t drive in there anymore and do
wheelies ... but I ve found out this morning
they ve been on our property overnight."
Canberra Liberals Member for Molonglo
Guilia Jones said she was glad the ACT
government had finally started fixing the
problem after residents raised their concerns.
