Phillip Island netballers, Jess Drazzi (left) and Jess
Gysberts (right), try on their Wanderers Netball uniform

for a trip to the Caribbean for an experience of a
Along with their families, they are flying to the
island nation of Barbados at the end of November
to take part in a netball competition.
It is all part of a tour run by sporting company
Wanderers Australia - a company that conducts
sporting tours all over the world.
The girls first found out about this tour when
they looked on the Netball Victoria website and de-
cided that this sounded like fun.
In having to self-fund this trip, the girls have
been working hard at their after-school jobs; with
Jess Drazzi working at Woolworths and Jess Gys-
berts at Cowes IGA.
They will be sharing this tour with all of the
Drazzi family (Cath, Lino and younger sister Ol-
ivia), and with mum Kath Gysberts and her aunt
The girls are scheduled to play eight netball
matches against different local teams including a
game against the prestigious Combermere School
which has produced four prime ministers and
four West Indies cricket captains.
A highlight of the tour will be playing two games
against the Barbados National Teams.
After leaving Barbados these happy Wanderers
will spend some time in Los Angeles before head-
ing back home.
These young avid netball players can't wait for
the whistle to blow and for the games to begin.
Wandering to netball in Barbados
DALYSTON residents and visi-
tors can travel about town with
ease by foot or bicycle thanks to a
recently completed pathway.
The new path along Bass High-
way in Dalyston runs from Tulloch
Street to Dalyston-Glen Forbes
The concrete path will now pro-
vide pedestrians with a safe off-
road alterative when travelling
between the Dalyston Recreation
Reserve, the new residential de -
velopment, Waterdale, and servic-
ing residential properties from
Tulloch, Powlett and Daly Street
though to Dalyston-Glen Forbes
Road, the bus stop and commer-
Dalyston has undergone a great
deal of development over the past
decade with more residential sub-
divisions in the pipeline.
The path project was identified
as part of Council's development of
the Dalyston Traffic Management
Plan, which investigated ways to
improve road safety, as well as
understand the views, values and
concerns of the local community
and other stakeholders.
Stakeholders included residents
and visitors, community organi-
sations, Powlett River Primary
School, businesses, transport pro-
viders, utility providers, emergen-
cy services, Department of Trans-
port and VicRoads.
Bass Coast Deputy Mayor and
Anderson ward councillor, Bradley
Drew, said Council listened and
acted on these issues.
"The Dalyston Traffic Manage-
ment Plan formed an essential
background document for Council
to better plan for Dalyston's future
development and to attract funding
from State and Federal Govern-
ments," Cr Drew said.
"The project also embraces
other Council plans including the
Roads Upgrade Program under
the adopted Roads Services Asset
Management Plan, and will ensure
delivery of the Community Service
levels, Connectivity and Commu-
The majority of the project was
funded through grants from the
Victorian Government Regional
Growth Fund via the Local Govern-
ment Infrastructure Program and
was completed in six weeks.
