BAROSSA Council is en-
couraging recreation park us-
ers to slow down and consid-
er the safety of others through
a new awareness campaign.
The initiative has been sup-
ported by the region's recre-
ation parks committees, which

A poster has also been cre-
ated and will be distributed by
park user groups.
Barossa Mayor Bob Sloane
said recreation parks across
the council have differing
speed limits, but vehicles
should travel at walking pace,
as a general rule.
"Our recreation parks are
community facilities used by
all members of our communi-
ty," he said.
"Our parks provide valuable
open space to the communi-
ty and are used by sporting
groups and for other popular
recreational activities includ-
ing walking, jogging, cycling
and dog exercising.
"We want everyone to feel
safe and enjoy our recreation
parks, but, unfortunately,
people are not adhering to
the speed limits in the parks,
which is putting others at risk,
particularly young children."
Start-up expands to new home
THE State Government has welcomed news
that one of the start-up businesses participating
in its Northern Entrepreneur Growth Program
(NEGP) has been able to "graduate" and ex-
pand into a new premises in Kudla.
The NEGP, an initiative under the govern-
ment's Northern Economic Plan, has enabled
five start-ups to operate from the Munno Pa-
ra-based Stretton Centre's curated co-working
One of the businesses, Red Centre Enterprises
-- an agribusiness that specialises in native plant
food and cosmetic products sourced from Indig-
enous Australians -- has, now, achieved enough
success to expand from its Stretton Centre space
and operate out of a site in Kudla.
Visiting the site last Thursday, Minister for
Manufacturing and Innovation Kyam Maher was
pleased to see a success story in the Gawler re-
gion following the closure of Holden's Elizabeth
manufacturing plant last October.
"This is an example of a small start-up compa-
ny, with some really good ideas, getting advice
and help and now we're seeing them graduate
from that program and they're going to be em-
ploying 13 people at the end of the month, with
ambitions to grow even further," he said.
"There are a lot of people who have been in-
volved in the auto industry; it's not just around
Elizabeth, but areas like Gawler.
"So (Member for Light Tony Piccolo) has been
very insistent that the sort of programs that we
have, to help that transition, also help this area."
The new Kudla agribusiness is the second
start-up to develop its own site after participating
in the NEGP, with another one having already
opened up in Playford, according to Stretton
Centre director Dermot Cussen.
"Our issue at the moment, in fact, is actually
space, because as of (Thursday) morning we've
got between four or five new businesses that are
going to start with us over the next month," Mr
"Not including what Red Centre have done,
the businesses that have started at Stretton have
created 18 jobs in total, to date."
Red Centre Enterprises executive director Na-
dia Matko said it'd been the start-up's goal for
a while to develop a hub for the native industry,
with demand having steadily increased, globally.
"The native industry will boom in the next few
years," she said.
"Aboriginal people haven't been the leaders
of the industry, so we are encouraging them to
become the leaders, as it's their own industry."
Going from strength to strength!
