THE Steps to Better Health service directo-
ry is set to undergo an update and reprint of
around 14,000 copies.
The directory is designed to help residents
locate and access local services that support
an individual's health and well-being, and
was originally funded by a grant from Coun-
try North SA Medicare Local.
Currently in its second edition, and also
available online, The Steps to Better Health
Committee is now looking to periodically re-
print the service directory as a 40-page A5-
sized booklet for distribution across the Low-
er North region.
The cost of the reprint is estimated at just
under $8000, and will be partly funded by lo-
cal council contributions.
to be reviewed
A REVIEW into Kapunda's speed limits,
including a proposal to reduce Main Street's
limit from 50 to 40 kilometres per hour, will
be conducted by Light Regional Council.
Elected members have recommended a
staff report be provided to a future council in-
frastructure committee meeting outlining the
rationale behind several existing and "incon-
sistent" road speed limits.
It follows, and is line with, a 'motion with-
out notice' originally presented to council's
November infrastructure committee meeting
by Councillor Keith Ellis.
The report will cover the implications of
reducing the speed limit to 40 km/h for the
stretch between Kapunda Primary School, on
Mildred Street, and the council chambers, at
the southern end of Main Street.
It will also consider the rationale for having
50 km/h speed limits on Clare Road, Mildred
Street and South Terrace, and produce a plan
for the entire town that includes having the 50
km/h zones on Mildred Street, South Terrace,
and Clare, Hancock and Perry roads replaced
with 60 km/h zones.
LIGHT Regional Council will review its
current budget in order to assist the Kapun-
da Senior Citizen's Club with the purchase
of new air-conditioners.
At their latest ordinary meeting, elected
members moved a motion without notice in
support of a budget review, in order to con-
tribute towards the cost of purchasing and
installing two split-system air-conditioners.
The senior citizens' club currently meets
regularly at the Senior Citizens' Hall, in
Chapel Street, which is listed as a Contributo-
ry Heritage item.
It hosts various social and recreational ac-
tivities, including painting classes, exercis-
ing sessions, and indoor bowls and petanque
Kapunda murals progress
A PROMINENT Kapunda businessman,
the late Eli Hambour, will feature in the
next lot of artwork for the growing 'Ka-
punda Mural Town' project.
Mr Hambour, among many things, was
known for helping to establish the Kapunda
Harness Racing Club, and will be depicted
on the side wall of Kapunda's art gallery,
later this year.
The mural will join several already com-
pleted or under-way across the township,
including the project's largest mural to date,
currently being painted directly onto the Lu-
cas Street wall of the Kapunda newsagency.
It depicts a montage of town and mine
scenes, taken from old photographs of the
Kapunda mine site and the Kapunda main
street, and is expected to be completed in
the second half of this year.
The mural's artist, Danny Menzel, said
the size and prominent location of the art-
work is drawing lots of attention from pass-
ers-by, who look forward to seeing it prog-
ress and take shape.
"I'm confident it will look really, really
good when finished, so that is what is driv-
ing me and what I enjoy about it," he said.
"I also enjoy painting; I'm a freelance
graphic designer, so a lot of the work I do
is on the computer these days, so I can miss
the painting side of what I do."
Other murals in the pipeline include for
the upper-storey windows of the North Ka-
punda Hotel, and the heritage-listed Hill
Street stone wall.
Three other large-scale artworks, at the
post office, fire station, and North Kapunda
Hotel, were formally unveiled as part of the
community-led initiative, in May.
Meanwhile, a Kickstarter campaign, start-
ed last year to garner community donations
towards the project, raised $5700 to bring
the total amount of public donations to near-
