UPGRADES are continuing at the Gawler
Motel, with owners taking down old signage this
The motel reopened in June this year, after shutting
its doors last July following the death of its owner Dr
The Bunyip understands the property has been pur-
chased by a handful of investors who have renamed
the Prasads Gawler Motel, Gawler Motel.
The motel is currently operating with old signage.
Last week 'Prasads' was removed from the sign
along one of its main buildings.
It is understood the new owners are in the process
of updating the motel's website and signage, which
will feature its new name.
The motel is currently undergoing renovations,
with 40 of its 104 rooms to be reopened to the pub-
lic, while a portion of the motel will be hired out for
A COMMUNITY market in Two Wells has
been given the green light by Mallala Council.
Proposed by Caroline Scutcheon, the market will
run from the car park of Two Wells Bowling Club,
which gave support for the project earlier this year.
Elected members approved the location for the ini-
tiative this month after a council report stated this
would "negate associated traffic risks by locating any
approved markets away from Old Port Wakefield
In the past, community markets have operated
along the Old Port Wakefield roadside.
Council's acting chief executive Peter Sellar said the
Two Wells Bowling Club would give the community
better access to the facility.
"It's better if we can take it away from the road a
little bit," he said.
A jumping castle and pony rides were originally
proposed as part of the market but the initiatives were
rejected by council staff and, additionally, were not
covered by the Two Wells Bowling Club insurance.

THE future of the dis-
trict Health Advisory
Council will be on the agen-
da when it meets tomorrow
Presiding member Pru Black-
well believes Gawler HAC
has a solid future, although
the council could "look differ-
"It could be part of a bigger
beast that has a better approach,"
Speaking personally, Ms
Blackwell said she believed
the Gawler HAC has
worked collaboratively with
Eudunda, Kapunda and Baros-
sa HACs and may now look
into working more collabora-
"In the region we've
worked well together and it may
be time to formalise that," she
The State Government last
month flagged potential merg-
ers and cuts of HACs around
Ms Blackwell said the councils
are yet to discuss the details of
further collaboration between
the regional groups, but expects
the matter will be raised during
the Gawler HAC monthly meet-
ing next week.
The meeting will follow a
community forum hosted by
Gawler HAC which will give lo-
cals an opportunity to have their
say on local health services and
meet council members.
Ms Blackwell said the com-
munity forum was an annual
"What we decided to do for
Roseworthy...is actually hear
from the community what they
think their emerging issues are
in regard to the community
and the health of the commu-
The meeting will be held at
the Roseworthy Institute tomor-
row night at 7pm.

MEN'S sheds in Willaston and Kapunda have
received grants from Liberal Senator for South
Australia, Sean Edwards.
Community men's sheds cater largely for older
men, offering social activities, including woodwork
and community projects.
Senator Edwards said men's sheds encourage emo-
tional and physical health.
"Good health is based on many factors and becom-
ing a men's shed member gives a person that safe and
busy environment where many of these things can be
found in an atmosphere of old-fashioned mateship,"
Kapunda Men's Shed received funding for a lawn
tractor worth $2000, while the Willaston shed (re-
ferred to as Willo's Men's Shed) received $1000 for
consumables and training support.
