City trials free parking at two CBD carparks

1.jpg

In an effort to support local businesses during the installation of underground power in the CBD, the City will be trialling free parking at two carparks until the project is completed at the end of January.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said trialling free parking at Carpark 3 behind McDonalds and Carpark 2 at the Geraldton Regional Library would make it easier for people to visit businesses located within the underground power project area and the rest of the CBD.

“There are a lot of shops, restaurants and businesses located in the underground power project area which extends along Chapman Road between Cathedral Avenue and Forrest Street and on Durlacher Street between Sanford Street and Marine Terrace,” he said.

“The City is keen to support these local businesses by offering their customers and clients the convenience of free, nearby parking over the coming months.

“The free parking period will also double as a trial which will inform Council’s review of paid parking set to take place early next year.

“With the holiday season fast approaching and the recent extension of trading hours we anticipate free parking will entice more people than ever before to visit our CBD.”

The free parking will go into effect on Saturday 18 November 2017.

Changing the World – one inspirational story at a time

Inspired Magazine founder Samille Mitchell with the latest issue of the magazine hot off the press.

Inspired Magazine founder Samille Mitchell with the latest issue of the magazine hot off the press.

Kalbarri writer Samille Mitchell is again showcasing the work of inspirational people striving to change the world, with the launch of the third issue of Inspired Magazine.

Inspired Magazine volume 3 takes readers across the globe to meet nine inspirational people working to make the world better.

It features people like the can-do Aussie Gemma Sisia, who is transforming lives for Tanzania’s bright but poverty-stricken children with free schooling in Africa.

It tells the tale of American man Conor Grennan’s bid to reunite stolen Nepalese children with their families. It shares the heartbreaking story of Live Your Legend founder Scott Dinsmore.

And includes a new feature on ethical travel with a story about a trip into the pulsing jungles of Borneo, plus more.

Samille, who founded the magazine three years ago, said she was extremely excited to have Inspired’s third issue back from the printers.

“I can scarcely believe we’ve managed to pull together the third issue of the magazine,” she said.

“And this year we’ve gone national – it’s amazing to think Inspired Magazine will now be in newsagencies across the country.”

Samille said it had been a testing road bringing the third issue to print.

“Producing a print magazine at a time when such magazines are in serious decline was probably not the most sensible business idea!” she said.

“There have been many times when I’ve questioned what I’m doing dedicating so much time and effort to telling these stories.

“But I’m so seriously passionate about sharing the stories of inspiring people that I just don’t seem to be able to give it up.

“I really think the media could do with a dose of hope and inspiration to help counter the negativity and political bickering that makes up so much of the news.”

Samille said producing a national magazine from her home office in Kalbarri had also posed some challenges.

“But I love that I can connect with all these amazing people all over the world, while still getting to live in a town that I love.”

Inspired’s first two issues were produced thanks to crowdfunding campaigns supported by a whole host of generous people. The third issue has been made possible thanks to partnerships with profit-for-purpose businesses.

Inspired Magazine is available in Geraldton at newsagencies, Pollinators, Flow Vitality, or by ordering online at www.inspired.org.au

The ‘Ascential Float’ Story

If ‘what is floating?’ is your reaction when someone mentions floatation therapy, then you’re not alone. In fact that was the exact response from the owners of the newly opened Ascential Float, when they first heard it 18 months ago! 

So who are the founding members of the Ascential Float team and why did they decide to open a floatation therapy centre here in Geraldton?

Richie and Roz, and Mark and Gabby are two local Geraldton couples with children and family in the area. They wanted to build a business that would give back to the community they love being a part of. But why floating?

2.jpg

Floating wasn’t something that they knew anything about until early 2016, but as soon as they started to research into ‘what is floating’ and ‘the benefits of floating’ they were completely hooked. They just had to try it for themselves. So off they went and absolutely LOVED it! This is when they decided to embark on the floating journey by opening a health and wellness centre in Geraldton offering floatation therapy, infrared sauna and massage.

3.jpg

They looked around for the perfect property to set up their wellness centre and in May 2016 they purchased the building at 156 Chapman Rd.

5.jpg

It took about 18 months once the renovations started in August 2016 for them to get to where they are today. They will proudly tell you that they all now live, breath and love floating.

4.jpg

Since opening their doors in August they have had a few additions to their team. Robyn and Amy joined the team to assist with running the floats, and Rhiannon, Jemma and Heather joined the team as their massage therapists. They may be a relatively new team but they are excited to be working together and are passionate about what they can bring to the community that we know and love.

If you have any questions the team at Ascential Float are always ready to stop and have a chat. Maybe you’d like to pop in and check out the size of the pods for yourself – they are a lot bigger in person! Guests are encouraged to take some ‘me’ time and soak up the atmosphere in their relaxation lounge while watching the world go by, in front of some amazing ocean views. 

2.jpg

So … if your answer to ‘Have you heard of floatation therapy’ is the same as theirs was, come on down and see what it’s all about.

Ascential Float is located at 156 Chapman Rd, and is open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am to 5pm. Or you can call them on 0413 732 010

TerryWhite Chemmart Bluff Point can help you get a good night sleep

We all know that not getting a good night sleep can make us tired and irritable, but what if there is more to it? If you are always feeling tired and your partner is constantly complaining about your snoring, then you should consider visiting your GP, who may refer you for a sleep study. A sleep study can determine how well you are sleeping and if you have sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea is a condition where you stop breathing many times during your sleep. There are a number of reasons as to why this would be happening including the collapsing of your airway when you sleep. 

TerryWhite Chemmart Bluff Point Pharmacy have experienced technicians who are available to help you through the process of the sleep study test. You no longer need to travel to the city to have this test done as their staff are fully trained to provide this service. The equipment used here is the same as the equipment used in the major sleep centres in Perth, and it can provide all the information required by the Sleep Specialist Physician to determine the type and severity of your condition.

If your test results show that you have sleep apnoea, the experienced staff at TerryWhite Chemmart Bluff Point are ready to guide you through the process of finding the most suitable treatment for you. They have been doing this for many years and are the most experienced team caring for sleep apnoea patients in Geraldton. Buying one of their very competitive CPAP equipment packages gives you access to amazing after sales services, with extended warranties, free maintenance, support consultations and information which may be useful to your GP or employer regarding sleep apnoea, which you can only get by buying locally.
And by buying with TerryWhite Chemmart Bluff Point you can be assured your money is staying within your community. 

7.jpg

Although they recently became part of the merged TerryWhite Chemmart Group, they are still locally owned and operated, just as they have been for the past 30 years. They love to support local events and groups, so you know your money is going back into your community.

TerryWhite Chemmart Bluff Point can help you with a range of services as well as the sleep study tests and equipment, including Webster Packing, medical certificates, flu vaccinations (with no appointment necessary during the week) and will price match prescriptions and products (conditions apply, see instore for details).

Geraldton’s Sobering Up Centre to Close

Geraldton MLA Ian Blayney has been advised by the McGowan Government that it will be withdrawing funding for the Geraldton Sobering Up Centre.

The centre will close on December 31, 2017.

“This is a vital service for some of the most vulnerable people in our community that this Labor Government has told me it can no longer afford to fund,” Mr Blayney said.

“This service cares for people with entrenched mental health and alcohol addiction issues and also provides a safe, caring environment for any children that may be in the company of these people.

“This is a place where police can bring intoxicated people knowing they will receive basic medical care and monitoring rather than having to leave them alone in a prison cell.

“It is also an alternative to these people presenting at hospital where they can be a disruption to other patients.”

Mr Blayney said the closure added to the growing list of services and infrastructure in Geraldton that the Labor Government had decided it could not afford.

“After just seven months’ in office this Government has decided it can’t afford critical improvements at our Geraldton Hospital, a mental health unit and now this vital frontline service,” Mr Blayney said.

“The people of Geraldton see the McGowan Government spending billions on a train service to a marginal Perth electorate, millions on a biodiversity plant in the marginal seat of Collie and millions in wave power research in the marginal seat of Albany, but cannot afford a simple sobering up service in Geraldton.

“It would be easier to believe the McGowan Government’s spin about cuts to frontline services being for budget repair if they hadn’t bought down a budget that increased both Government spending debt.”

Rooms available for rent for Health and Beauty Professionals

There are individual rooms available for Health and Beauty professionals at 120 Chapman Road, Geraldton, to rent. This beautiful character building has a shared reception, bathroom and staff kitchen. This would be a perfect opportunity for a sole trader, in an amazing location with on-site parking.

Roundabout planned for busy North West Coastal Highway junction

The McGowan Government will upgrade the busy intersection of North West Coastal Highway and Hosken Street in wider Geraldton into a new four-leg roundabout.

Taking community feedback into account, Main Roads Western Australia has finalised designs for a roundabout to replace the existing T-junction at Hosken Street and provide a new connection to Spalding via Horan Street.

The roundabout will include separate left-turn lanes on Horan Street, Hosken Street and North West Coastal Highway northbound and an upgraded shared path network for pedestrians and cyclists, in line with community feedback.

It will be designed to accommodate a future dual carriageway on North West Coastal Highway in this location to provide for heavy and oversized vehicles.

For more information on the proposed roundabout, visit http://www.mainroads.wa.gov.au or attend Main Roads' community information session at Spalding Park Tennis Club on Wednesday November 8, 2017 at 6pm.

Comments attributed to Transport Minister Rita Saffioti:

"I recently visited this intersection and I am confident the upgrade will significantly improve safety and efficiency at the current T-junction.

"Adding in the fourth leg to Horan Street will also help facilitate an urban renewal program in Spalding, planned by the Department of Communities."

Comments attributed to Agricultural Region MLC Darren West:

"I am pleased that safety issues at the Hosken Street intersection will now be addressed by the McGowan Government.

"Concerns about the safety of this dangerous intersection was first raised with me in December 2014 after a child had been hit in the face by a rear vision mirror while crossing the road.

"Since then, I have continued to advocate for an upgrade in the Parliament but this project was not deemed important by the Barnett Liberal National Government.

"I thank the Minister and the staff at Main Roads for supporting our community by improving safety for local and other road users."

Comments attributed to Agricultural Region MLC Laurie Graham:

"This upgrade is very much welcomed and needed, increasing road safety for road users and pedestrians.

"Construction will begin in early 2018 and the new roundabout should be completed by mid-year.

"This follows the announcement of upgrades to Brand Highway, Great Northern Highway and Indian Ocean Drive worth $13.5 million as part of the Regional Road Safety package."
