Elizabth Re and Kath Mazzella at Princesses, Petticoats & Pearls Event

Elizabeth Re was invited as a special guest to the Princesses, Petticoats & Pearls event hosted by Women Can International Inc at the  Lily of the Valley Cafe, Henley Brook on 6th March 2010 in celebration of International Women’s Day.

On the day Elizabeth helped out in many ways.  She was the judge for the Fashion Parade, which included girls as young as 8 years through to the more senior women of over 70.

It was a fabulous fun day of frollicking with cups of tea and jam and scones on the lawn at the fabulous Lily of the Valley Cafe in Henley Brook in the Swan Valley.

Elizabeth also pulled the winning tickets out of a hat for the lucky door prizes and presented the awards for the best dressed and best model in the parade.

“It’s wonderful to see women from all the different generations getting together to celebrate International Women’s Day”, said Elizabeth.  “I can’t wait until next year and they’re expecting quite a bigger crowd now that the word is out what a great event it is.”

Hayley Solich, Chairperson and Founder of Women Can International Inc says, “Liz was fabulous.  Had I realised how accomplished she was I would have created a speaking slot for her but it was a bit of a last minute invitation and we felt very privileged that she would support our event.  She was so willing to jump in and help out with all aspects of the day.  The world needs more people like Liz who are just willing to serve in whatever capacity is required.  I really appreciated her flexibility and her lack of pretence.”

Elizabeth is committed to support community events and where possible does her best to put in an appearance to show the community her commitment to them.

>Stir over High Voltage Lines

WOODLANDS residents have expressed their concern about a new development that could see high voltage powerlines moved to within metres of homes and a childcare centre.

The powerlines are set to run down the centre of a realigned stretch of Ewen Street, which will be moved farther south to make way for a new development site, pending final approval from the City of Stirling.

But homeowners, whose properties back onto the site, say they are worried about the impact of powerlines running so close to their back yards.

Hakea Road resident Monique Wesley said it would be a “great concern” if the planned work was to go ahead.

“I have a one-year-old and a two-year-old, and I don’t really like the idea of them playing underneath powerlines without knowing what the long-term effects might be,” she said.

Doubleview ward councillor Elizabeth Re said she had spoken to several residents who were concerned about the close proximity of the proposed lines. “They’ve put the concrete footings in place for the poles, and we’re trying to stop it before they go in,” she said.

Western Power spokeswoman Marisa Chapman said a minimum 16-metre easement had been utilised between powerlines and buildings, including the recently opened Cuddly Bear Childcare Centre.

It’s disturbing that a lovely quite cul-de-sac should be encroached upon by such high voltage cabling. Unless the are was previously designated for such an installation (and it wasn’t), such devices should be kept well away from housing.

Doesn’t Cr Elizabeth Re live within meters of the proposed development?
