Local news grabs and briefs

By AV&DRA president Shaun Reardon

Following the 2017 AGM the Angle Vale & Districts Residents Association welcomes some new faces to the committee:
President: Shaun Reardon; Vice President: Rocky Virgara; Secretary: Sonia Briggs (new); Vice Secretary: Jonny Virgara; Treasurer David Craddock; Public Officer Cathy Craddock.
Committee members: Mark Lunn, Gary Nau, Clint Marsh ( returns after absence), Tania Wilson (new), Damian Vallelonga (new)
While AV&DRA took a lead role in the City of Playford’s rate policy review earlier this year the association has a number of issues we are currently involved with.
These issues include provision of footpaths and improved stormwater runoff in particular on Angle Vale road on the western side.
The association has raised this with the City of Playford and is currently waiting for a response.
The intersection of Curtis Road and Heaslip Road has been a concern for local residents for some time.
Association President Shaun Reardon along with Chairman Adrian Marschall from the Virginia Residents Action Group met with local and state government representatives to highlight the need for an upgrade to the intersection.
Both local resident associations will continue to push for this to increase the safety for our community.
Another safety concern for our local community has been the increasing level of crime in the area. The association will be shortly meeting with SAPOL to develop strategies to increase the safety of our community.
As well as moving forward with new issues the Association will continue to monitor the state of the City of Playford’s budget against the long term financial plan. With the council budget relying on our rates to cover around 75% of the council’s income it’s our money the council is spending.
The Angle Vale & Residents Association look forward to representing its local community for another year and hope each year it can help to further improve our community.

Neighbourhood Watch report by Lisa Silvy

Two Wells police report rural shed and sporting club breaks in the Barossa area and urge members of the public to report any suspicious behaviour to 131444 or 000 in emergencies.
The Two Wells area will be subject to large housing developments in the near future, which brings property theft from building sites, so please remain vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour.
Our next Neighbourhood Watch meeting will be held on Tuesday October 10 at 7:30pm at the Two Wells RSL, Old Port Wakefield Road (opposite the Empire Café). We would love to see you there.

The next Blue Light disco will be held on Friday October 27 at the Two Wells Community Centre (behind the football club), from 7pm-9:30pm. Entry is $5, drinks and souvenir accessories are available for purchase from the canteen.
Please note this is a lock-in event for children aged between 8 and 17 to keep and build rapport between youth and the local police.
Ensure you keep your entry ticket as we have some fantastic door prizes to give away.
This disco is Halloween themed and would love to see you get in the spirit and come dressed up in character.
