The $1.6 million improvements will be undertaken by Coalcliff Plant Hire.

Shire President Cr Wayne Sanford expressed his delight that a local firm has won the contract and was looking forward to yet another improvement to the town’s character and amenity.

“Council’s CBD revitalisation program is really gaining traction and these road and parking improvements will make a huge difference to how people experience and perceive the town.” He said.

Cr Sanford went on to say that the works will improve the area.

“The additional parking and improved access for the CBD will make the shopping experience more convenient and enjoyable for the local community and visitors.”

Coalcliff Plant Hire principal, Terry Massara, said that his team will be working to minimise any disruption to business and customers over the months of March and April.

Coalcliff Operations manager Darrell Scott said they are hoping to get the project complete on schedule.

“We are expecting the project to take twelve weeks start to finish, subject to weather conditions.”

The Anglicare Diocese of Ballarat launched their new cookbook on Thursday with the hopes of raising funds for the Ballarat centre.

The 500-recipe cookbook was a collaboration between the Ballarat Diocese Anglicare Steering Committee, Ballarat parishes and Ballarat Grammar School

Ballarat Diocese Anglicare Steering Committee member and Ballarat Grammar School captain Matthew Hall said the cookbook became the perfect chance to bring the parishes together for a good cause.

“We started thinking about it two and a half years ago on the committee and thought not only would it be a good fundraiser but also good for getting people together from all parishes,” he said.

Ballarat Grammar School students were given the opportunity to design each segment of the new cookbook including the cover.

It was year 12 student Elizabeth Wilson who took out first place for every design.

Inspired by a food advertisement on television, Ms Wilson had a different take on the tradition cookbook design.

“I saw the competition and thought I should have a go,” she said.

“I thought it would be a good idea to have more of an art and a creative side to food.”

Six hundredcopies are currently available to purchase at the Ballarat Diocesan Centre and Anglicare Centre with funds raised going towards the Anglicare Diocese of Ballarat.

WHAT: Anglicare’s Art of Cooking Cookbook

Queanbeyan has announced its new principal partner, Allinsure takes over the naming rights to the Tigers home ground, formerly known as Dairy Farmers Park.

“Our club has been extremely fortunate to have the support of Capitol Chilled Foods and the ‘Dairy Farmers’ brand for the past 15 years,” Queanbeyan general manager football operations, Michael Goiser said.

“But with Dairy Farmers moving to another category of support for our club, we are very proud to announce that Allinsure is coming on board as our new Principal Partner, and that from today our home ground will be known as Allinsure Park,”

Allinsure will provide the Tigers with a performance-based sponsorship deal.

The Tigers will receive a percentage of premiums sold to Queanbeyan Football Club members.

Peter Chamberlain, director of Canberra-based insurance adviser Allinsure, is well known in local AFL circles having umpired local first grade football throughout the 1990s and 2000s.

Chamberlain said it was his passion for the game of AFL that encouraged him to link with the Queanbeyan Tigers.

“It is an important time for the game in Canberra as clubs like Queanbeyan transition out of the North East Australian Football League (NEAFL) and back into a revamped and restructured AFL Canberra competition,” he said.

“AFL Canberra is beginning a new era of local football and we at Allinsure saw the opportunity to partner with the Queanbeyan Tigers as an excellent opportunity to help grow the game while supporting a local club.

“The Queanbeyan Tigers are a proud, traditional club dating back to 1925. They’ve had enourmous success in the modern era and we are very excited to be partnering with them,” Peter concluded.

The Tigers season kicks off on Saturday, May 2 2015 at the newly named Allinsure Park following the release of the draw for First Grade, Second Grade and Rising Stars (Under 18s).
