West Arnhem Wire - Fortnightly news in brief from Jabiru, Gunbalanya, Maningrida, Warruwi and Minjilang 6 The West Arnhem Wire | 10 - 23 October 2020 MANINGRIDA OVAL PROGRESS THEMED DAY RAISES MONEY FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER SUPPORT Jabiru Childcare Centre celebrated Talk Like a Pirate Day, which is nationally recognised as the major fundraiser for Childhood Cancer Support recently. It is also an opportunity to polish your pirate speaking and say AHOY there, me harties to all ye mateys, school crew and work mates. The upgrade of the Maningrida football oval, funded jointly by the NTG Department of Tourism, Sport and Culture and West Arnhem Regional (WARC) Council is progressing rapidly, with cut and fill works well under way. The playing surface of the oval will be upgraded to a regional standard for AFL and include improved drainage, which is all important particularly during the wet season. Upgraded lighting will allow night fixtures to be played with site services being commenced this week in preparation for the light towers to be installed. Extensive consultation has been conducted with Traditional Owners throughout the works, particularly when several trees were identified around the oval for removal or trimming. WARC Council Service Manager Yanja Thompson has played an integral role in gathering people together to facilitate this consultation. The oval is a popular recreation area for the Maningrida community and with this in mind, the WARC Technical Services team have supervised the project closely. They have been on the ground in Maningrida regularly over the past few weeks to ensure the works progress toward successful completion by the end of the year. NEW EQUIPMENT FOR WARRUWI COMMUNITY The playing surface of the oval will be upgraded to a regional standard for AFL.." A new skid steer arrived in Warruwi by barge recently and has already been put to good use by West Arnhem Regional Council staff. This important piece of equipment will help the works crew in their day-to-day duties as well as maintaining roads in the community and even at the landfill site. The skid steer was purchased used capital reserve funds. This year has found us all with more time at home; time that is being spent in the kitchen, time to plan what we are cooking and where we will source our produce from. It is simple. If we take the time to source the produce of this years winners, we will taste the difference in our cooking and what we share with the family. << From Front Page NATIONAL AWARD RECOGNISES MANINGRIDA WILD FOODS LEADER Pictured are Albert Upkett and Alfred Gawaraidji with the skid steer.
