Bothwell all-rounder Nathan Eyles.
T20 competition

THE final round of Twenty20 matches was played on Saturday, with some teams set to play off in the finals next month while others will miss out.

In First Grade, New Norfolk I went down to St Aidans by 31 runs at Cambridge. The home side had first shot, making 6-166 off 20 overs. In reply the Red Caps finished 7-135 from the 20 overs. Jordan Banks-Smith again got among the runs, making 32 from 26 balls. Opener Seb Wishart made 31 from 28. Down the order, Rohan Heron remained 26 not out (24 balls) and Jason Rigby made 18 from 15. Earlier with the ball, Rigby took 2-24 (4). Jye Lester got 2-32 (4) and Jordan Banks-Smith 1-14 (3). Matthew Bowden got a run out. New Norfolk I finished third on the Pool A ladder.

Second Grade: Gretna I put in a good effort, going down to Sorell by just nine runs at Pembroke Park. The home side made 4-127 off its 20 overs. In the run chase, Gretna gave it a good shake only to finish just short at 4-118 off the 20 overs. With the ball, opener Zac Crosswell was tight with 2-12 from his four overs while Sam Booth was the other wicket taker with 2-31 (3). With the bat, Aaron Maddox top scored with 37 from 32. Maddox put on 54 with opener Rhys Browning, who made 25 (30). Fellow opener Todd Jarvis continued his good form with 25 (28) and Mathew Burns tried hard right to the end, finishing on 24 (27).

St Annes defeated Molesworth I by six wickets in the match at Boyer Oval. The home side had first hit, making 8-116 off the 20 overs. Opener Daniel Coppleman made 30, as did Josh Ransley at No.4, while first drop Nick Piuselli made 25. In reply, St Annes chased down the total with just four balls to spare, finishing with 4-119 off 19.2 overs. With the ball John Fowle did well, taking 2-18 from his four overs. Josh Ransley got 1-7 (2) and Daniel Coppleman 1-24 (3.2)

Third Grade: New Norfolk II racked up its second T20 win with a good six-wicket win over Wellington at Tynwald Park. The Red Caps finished second on the Twenty20 Pool A ladder. The visitors had first dig, making 8-76 from 19 overs. In reply the home team finished with 4-79 off 14.5 overs. Richard Graham had a great game, top scoring with 45 from 42 balls. He earlier took 1-8 from his four overs in a fine spell of bowling. Opener David Mitchelmore made 19 runs and took 2-4 from two overs. Jamie Hill bowled very tightly as well with 2-12 (4). Veteran Graeme Rowlands made a comeback, bowling really well to take 2-20 (4), and Cody Morgan give little away, finishing with 1-17 from his four overs.

Fourth Grade: An undefeated century from Bothwell all-rounder Nathan Eyles secured a big 95-run win over Gretna II at Bothwell on Saturday. Batting first, the Bucks made the huge score of 2-184 off their 20 overs. Opening the batting, Eyles went on a run spree, belting sixes and fours to all parts of the ground to finish not out on 109. He shared a 109-run stand with Simon Eyles who made a very handy 35, while Josh Eyles did likewise with 26 not out. Jake Campbell was the only wicket taker with 2-37 (4). In the run chase, Gretna II finished with 6-90 off its 20 overs. Jake Campbell batted very well for his 33 which included a couple of nice sixes. Bothwell captain Brock Nichols bowled very well, taking 3-10 (4), while opener Josh Eyles did likewise picking up 2-15 (4). Nathan Eyles capped off a top day, finishing with 1-15 (3) in a fine man-of-the-match performance.

Bothwell finished second on the Pool A Twenty20 ladder while Gretna finished fourth. The Bothwell team had eight members of the Eyles family playing. There would have been nine, but veteran Joey Eyles pulled out due to an injury. To add to this, Joey’s eldest son Cody plays with Glenorchy. If Cody ends up playing alongside his family members, that would make 10 — a real family affair. Well done to you all, it’s a fine effort indeed.

Fifth Grade: Bushy Park put in a good performance, defeating the Knights by 33 runs at the Bushy Park Showground. Having first hit, the Bees made the good score of 4-164 from the 20 overs. An opening stand of 96 from Jack Evans (59 runs from 51 balls) and Shaun Fenton (46 from 33) gave their team a great start. Mitchell Crosswell then kept things going with 34 not out from 23 deliveries, and Jasper Gerhard Marais made 10 from 10. In reply, the Knights finished 9-131 from the 20 overs. The Bees put in some fine spells of bowling, in particular from Max Shultz who sent down four overs to take 5-42 , while spinner and captain Nick Fenton cleaned up as well with the excellent figures of 4-8 from his four overs. The win puts Bushy Park on top of the Pool A T20 ladder.

New Norfolk III was defeated by Lindisfarne by 48 runs at Tynwald Park. Batting first and being 2-8 early, the visitors went on to make 7-118 off their 20 overs. Captain Nathan Heron took 2-31 (4) and Jack Morgan-Miller 2-11 (2), while both Stuart Muir and Liam Kalbfell bowled tightly taking 1-14 (4) each. There was one run out. With the bat, the Red Caps finished 9-70 from their 20 overs. Andrew Callander made 16 from 17 balls and Jake Stevenson remained 12 not out from 15 balls. New Norfolk finished fourth on the Pool B ladder.

Seventh Grade: Bothwell defeated Wellington by 22 runs at home. Batting first, the Bucks made 8-89 from their 20 overs. Batting at No.9, Mathew Glover made 14 not out. Opener Tyler White got 12 and Mark Pearce 11. In reply and playing one short and with one batsman not batting, the visitors made 8-67 from 17.1 overs. Captain Peter Hansch cleaned up, finishing with the excellent figures of 4-16 from his four overs. Opener Brodie White did very well, capturing 2-9 off two overs, while Tyler White did his bit as well with 2-14 (2.1). The good win puts Bothwell in third position on the T20 ladder.

Molesworth II defeated Montagu Bay by six wickets in the match at Boyer Oval. Batting first, the visitors made 6-86 from their 20 overs. Opening bowler Dean King, who has returned to the club, bowled extremely well in taking 2-7 from his four overs. Braydan Chaplin did well, taking 2-26 from his four overs, while David Adams and Jye County were equally as good with the ball, with both taking 1-14 their four overs.

Remembering lives lost in World War I

The New Norfolk Cenotaph.
THE 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended World War I will be observed at two main events in the Derwent Valley this weekend.

Tickets to the Armistice Ball at the Lachlan Community Hall tonight (Saturday) will be available at the door from 7pm.

Tomorrow (Sunday) morning will see the main observance take place at the Cenotaph in Circle St, New Norfolk, where the New Norfolk RSL will conduct a service.

World War I started with considerable excitement in 1914 but four long years of total warfare took its toll on Tasmania, with more than 3000 of the island's men losing their lives to the conflict. The Armistice was signed in Europe at 5am on November 11, 1918, but it was late in the night before the news reached Australia.

Hostilities ceased on November 11, which became known as Armistice Day (now Remembrance Day) but the peace treaty was not signed for another seven months, which is why many memorials including the New Norfolk Cenotaph (pictured) carry the dates 1914-19, but others including the New Norfolk State School honour roll (below, at New Norfolk Primary School) has 1914-18.

Entry to tonight's Armistice Ball at the Lachlan Community Hall will cost $25 per person, which includes supper. The commemorative event will honour those involved in World War I with music and dress from that era. The music and dancing starts at 7.30pm and there will be a supper and re-enactment of the announcement of the Armistice later in the night.

In New Norfolk tomorrow morning the main Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph will start at 10.45am. This will be followed by a light lunch at the RSL Club in George St, all welcome.

Round 2 results

CONSIDERING the 40km/h winds and frequent showers, it’s surprising that only two matches were washed out last weekend.

In first grade, New Norfolk I racked up its second win in as many weeks when it easily defeated Montagu Bay by seven wickets. Playing at Geilston Bay, the Sharks were bowled out for 132 in 33.3 overs. Captain Seb Wishart was the pick of the bowlers, talking 3-17 from seven overs. Jordan Willoughby was the other main wickettaker , with 2-26 off four overs. Opening bowlers Jye Lester sent down seven overs for 1-24 , and Nathan Rice took 1-14 off 4.3. Josh Rowlands took 1-24 off three overs, and Rohan Heron managed two run-outs. In reply the Red Caps did it easily, reaching 2-132 from 25.3 overs. Jordan Banks-Smith showed his class with 50 not out from just 67 balls, and Seb Wishart capped off a great day with 44 not out from 64 balls.

Second Grade
IN the match at Collinsvale, Gretna I again fell victim to its hoodoo when it went down to the Knights by 33 runs. The home team won the toss and elected to bat, making 208 off 49.3 overs. In reply Gretna was dismissed for 175 off 44.5 overs. Opener Todd Jarvis made a welcome return to form with 45 from 66 balls. Corey Ransley again showed maturity with 35 from 36, and Mathew Burns made a quickfire 24 from 20 balls. Trent Grant finished 17 not out. Of the Gretna bowlers, captain and spinner Ben Rainbird took 3-29 off five overs. Fellow spinner Jamie Duggan also did well, taking 2-31 off 10 overs. Zac Crosswell took 2-29 off three overs.

Jye Bearman top-scored with 62 from 69 balls, and Richard Graham also did well to finish 33 not out. Playing one short, the visitors made 9-98 off 34.4 overs.

Fifth Grade
A BRILLIANT 88 from Mitchell Crosswell and a six-wicket haul from Dylan Grant helped Bushy Park defeat St Virgil’s by 60 runs at St Virgil’s College. Batting first, the Bees made 145 off 25 overs. Crosswell’s big innings and 25 from Shaun Fenton put on an 80-run stand, giving their bowlers something to defend. The partnership was crucial to the outcome, with six of the Bees’ batsmen making ducks. Adam Van Luxembourg made a very handy 12 not out batting at No.10.

New council sworn in tonight

Incoming mayor Ben Shaw addressing
tonight's ceremonial meeting.
COUNCILLORS have pledged to work together for the advancement of the municipality at tonight's ceremonial first meeting of the new-look Derwent Valley Council.

General manager Greg Winton opened the proceedings at 6pm and said the gathering was not a formal council meeting but a ceremonial swearing-in of new councillors as required by the Local Government Act.

Seven of the eight incoming councillors were present, with Mr Winton explaining that re-elected councillor Anne Salt was an apology and had been privately sworn-in earlier in the week. This was a sequel to earlier this year when Mrs Salt completed her declaration as a new councillor behind closed doors after being elected to the council on a recount and was unable to attend her first scheduled meeting.

The ceremonial meeting was the first of its kind for this council, which in the past has sworn-in its new members at a regular monthly meeting. The event was attended by a number of family members and friends of the newly elected members.

"Essentially this process is required under the Local Government Act," Mr Winton said. "The individuals that you see before you tonight are accepting the responsibilities that come with being a councillor and they do so with little recognition and little recompense," he said.

"They do so in order to try to improve this municipality and move forward, and for me, ceremonies such as this are an important reminder of the beginning of that process," Mr Winton said. He then invited each candidate to step forward in the order in which they were elected, with the exception of the deputy mayor and mayor who were sworn in last.

Most candidates spoke about their ambitions for the next four years, congratulated their fellow councillors on their election, and commiserated with the unsuccessful candidates and defeated councillors. There were also a number of comments about the need to work together to for the benefit of the municipality, to advance the various proposals and projects already in place, and to implement the council's new strategic plan.

Cr Cosgrove spoke about her pride in being elected as the council's first female deputy mayor. Cr Shaw, as the council's youngest mayor, spoke about the great working relationship enjoyed by the previous council and said he looked forward to working with the new group. "This is what I was hoping for in terms of a new, fresh council; a council that is very diverse in its age, experience and background," Cr Shaw said. "So I really think this is a fantastic council to move this community forward."

Esplanade worker injured

A CONTRACTOR working on improvements at the Derwent Esplanade in New Norfolk was injured in a workplace incident yesterday.

In a statement, the Derwent Valley Council said it was aware of the incident that occurred yesterday morning, but did not go into any detail about the nature of the accident.

"A contractor’s employee has been injured and taken to hospital by ambulance," a council spokesman said. "Worksafe Tasmania have been notified of the incident and council will work with them to
investigate how the incident occurred.

"Council is concerned about the contractor’s wellbeing and wishes him a speedy recovery. The works site will be closed to the public until worksafe enquiries have been conducted and the improvement works have been completed."

Ceremonial first meeting for council

IN a break with tradition, the Derwent Valley Council will hold a ceremonial first meeting tomorrow (Thursday) night rather than wait until the scheduled monthly meeting as has been the past practise. The eight candidates elected last week will be sworn-in during the special meeting, which is scheduled to run from 6-7pm.

The meeting will be held in the New Norfolk Courthouse in Circle St and each councillor will be given the opportunity to speak for about five minutes. The public is invited to attend and no other business is expected to be dealt with during this meeting.

The monthly meeting scheduled for November 15 has been postponed until November 22, and the December meeting and AGM will be held on December 13.

Vale Sheila Maxfield

FORMER teacher Sheila Maxfield is being remembered by generations of grateful students following her death at New Norfolk yesterday. A long-serving educator, artist and community worker, Mrs Maxfield passed away at Corumbene Nursing Home, aged 89.

Best remembered as an art teacher at New Norfolk High School, she also turned her hand to other subjects as required, including typing and cooking, and worked as a relief teacher for a time after her retirement. Dozens of her former students have shared their memories and condolences on social media yesterday and today.

Mrs Maxfield's funeral will be held on November 16.

Deputy mayor to run New Norfolk Market

Jessica Cosgrove.
INCOMING Derwent Valley Council deputy mayor Jessica Cosgrove has been appointed as the permanent operator of the New Norfolk High Street Market. The final meeting of the outgoing council voted unanimously to grant a licence to Ms Cosgrove, who has been the market's temporary organiser for some months.

In a report to the October council meeting, regional development officer Jess Dallas recommended the acceptance of Ms Cosgrove's expression of interest to operate the market. She also suggested that the general manager be authorised to provide initial support to the new operator.

Councillors initially seemed reluctant to endorse the motion, with mayor Martyn Evans having to call twice for someone to move that Ms Dallas' recommendations be accepted. Deputy mayor Ben Shaw ultimately moved the motion, seconded by Cr Julie Triffett. Cr Shaw, Cr Anne Salt and Cr James Graham then spoke to the motion and it was carried without dissent.

The New Norfolk High Street Market grew from an earlier market held on Saturdays at Willow Court. A council meeting in September 2017 approved a six month trial of the market in the town centre, initially organised by John Blegg.

"Consultation conducted with the community following the trial revealed an overwhelmingly  positive response for the retention of the market on a permanent basis," Ms Dallas said in her report. This expression of support led to the council extending the approval for the temporary market while seeking expressions of interest from potential permanent operators.

Ms Dallas said only one expression of interest had been received and it had been assessed by a panel including representatives from the Brighton Council and Hobart City Council. The assessment gave the proposal a score of 27 out of 45, or 60%.

 "The  evaluation  assessment team made a number of  observations in regard to the EOI submitted, overall concluding that the EOI should be accepted, subject to the applicant being provided with some guidance from the Council in relation to a number of areas of concern highlighted in the report," Ms Dallas said. "These included the proponent undertaking traffic management training, that the Council suggest that the proponent create a committee or group of volunteers to assist with the operations of the market and that the operator of the market be provided with some guidance in regard to completing the requirements of the event management guide and licence."

Ms Dallas said the licence document clearly stated that the market operator will be required to  comply with all statutory and regulatory requirements, including:
  • Traffic management;
  • Public health, food handling and storage;
  • Public liability insurance, and;
  • All other requirements contained in the Council’s Events Management Guide. 
"There is an allocation in the current budget which may be able to be utilised to assist in providing the initial support recommended to the successful market operator," Ms Dallas said.

Speaking in support of the recommendation, Cr Shaw said the motion was fantastic. "I think the market's been absolutely fantastic for the revival of the Derwent Valley precinct," he said. "Going last week I think it was thousands of people there."

Cr Salt said she was "concerned and surprised" that most of the recommendations in the report had not already been in place. Cr Graham agreed that the original proposal had been "slightly undercooked" but the new proposal clearly identified the role of the council and the market organiser.

Since the council meeting, Ms Cosgrove has announced Banjo's New Norfolk as the naming-rights sponsor of the High St market.
