Guitar winners Carter &

Riverland for a fundraising
concert on Father's Day.
The concert will support the work of
Riverland school chaplains -- or Christian
pastoral support workers (CPSWs) as
they are known in South Australia.
Event spokesperson David Badger
said given the duo's high profile in
Australia, he expected a big crowd from
across the Riverland and Mildura.
"The concert will be a great way for
all the family to celebrate Father's Day
together," he said.
Seventeen CPSWs work in public
schools across the Riverland and Mr
Badger said it was "fantastic" that Carter
& Carter agreed to help raise money
"It's great to have such wonderful
singers coming to Berri," he said.

"There's a positive aspect on life in
our songs," the duo said. "We want
people to go away from a show feeling
good -- that our songs relate to listeners.
Fans come and say 'I know what you
mean in that song'."
Local rising star Elisabeth Werner,

stage for several songs with Carter &

Disability plan discussion
The public toilets, local
footpaths and the Loxton
Pioneer Playground were
hot topics at the Disability
Access and Inclusion Plan
community meeting last
About 14 locals attended the
community meeting to have their
say on a variety of issues facing
Loxton residents with a disability.
Director of corporate and com-
munity services Ruth Firstbrook
said it was "vital" locals have their
say and input into the plan.
"We wanted to hear from people
with disabilities, their carers, ser-
vice providers and find what are
the issues around access in our
community to facilities and servic-
es and what can council consider,"
Mrs Firstbrook said.
"It was a really lively meeting
with lots of input."
A draft report will now be pre-
pared, which highlights the areas
that need consideration. Mrs
Firstbrook said those who did not
attend the meeting still had oppor-
tunities to have their say.
"We currently have a survey on
our website," she said. "We really
encourage anybody with a dis-
ability, family members, carers
or anybody in the community to
complete it because that gives us
further information about what the
issues are for people with disabili-
ties in our community."
Mrs Firstbrook said the report
would also go for public consulta-
tion in coming months.
Locals have until September 4 to
complete the survey, which can be
found online by visiting the web-
Hard copies of the survey are
available from the Loxton Council
Chambers and the Loxton Public
