Shake it happy with Tommy

Posted on by

TOMMY Franklin has been described as the happiest man alive and this month he will be heading to town as part of the Ulladullirious comedy festival.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

After his success on Australia’s Got Talent in 2013, Tommy has been wowing crowds with his infectious attitude to dancing.

He is excited to be bringing his intoxicating ability to express himself without inhibition to an Ulladulla audience.

“I’m very much looking forward to coming, I’ve never been to Ulladulla,” Tommy said.

“I believe every place has something that makes it sparkle, every town has its perks and its jerks.

“I’m heading to the local high school where there will be a DJ and I will lead everyone in a huge dance.

“There will be a big surprise but I don’t think I’m allowed to reveal anything just yet.”

Whether he’s rocking a dance party at a club or, dancing in the street, it’s clear that Tommy Franklin is a spokesperson for healthy living.

He has come a long way since his drugs and alcohol ruled his life at the age of 16.

On his darkest day, the keen skateboarder almost lost his life when he had a car accident leaving him with a shattered kneecap, broken leg and a punctured lung.

After eight months of rehabilitation learning to walk again, Tommy turned his life around and now expresss his gratitude through dance.

“I use to be really destructive and wanted to hurt a lot of people,” he said.

“And then I turned it around and found that it doesn’t hurt anyone to be have a wiggle and giggle and this is the cleanest drug we have – dancing.”

Tommy has been sober since 2003 and is proud to be a dealer in smiles, spreading his dance frenzy around the country.

Tommy is known for his crazy fashion sense and is encouraging everyone who attends his Ulladulla event to dress up and become a free spirit for the night.

“Fashion is my passion, I believe when people dress up they become invincible,” he said.

“When you go to a fancy dress party everyone is over the top and has a great time, I think people should do that at my show.

“I have a rule when I get dressed, I look at myself in the mirror and if it makes me laugh I have to wear it out.”

Join Tommy Franklin and DJ HEIMSKI at Ulladulla High School auditorium on Saturday, August 23.

The event is drug and alcohol free for all ages tickets are $16 and available online at www.ulldullirious苏州美甲美睫培训学校.au

The future is rosy for Access Industries

Posted on by

MOVING SIGHT: Henry Plant Hire are already making ready the area for the building site.THE turning of the first sod for the newAccess Industries for the Disabled was madeat a small ceremony in Inch Street, Lithgowwith the honour going to long term workersSheryl Butler and Janet Cooper.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

At the ceremony was Access presidentNorman Drew who outlined the history andfuture.

The year 2014 marks the 65thAnniversary of Access Industries for theDisable Ltd. It was back in April 1949 that asmall group of people with physical disabilitiesjoined together to form a self help andmutual support group for people who hadnot acquired their disabilities as a result ofwar service.

As such, it was one of the very first organisationsof its type sets up in Australia.

Today, Access Industries operates threedivisions, comprising six separate sites, allcommitted to pursuing this aim.

These sites are located at Seven Hills(where we have two facilities), Erskine parkand Horsley park in the Sydney metropolitanarea; Hamilton in Newcastle and here atLithgow.

Between them, these divisions provideemployment, training and support for closeto 250 people with disabilities.

Access Industries did not establish theoperations here at Lithgow. At the request ofthe local community they stepped in backin 1978 to ensure the continuation of theoperations of a service that had originallybeen set up by the Lithgow Branch of a formerlarge organisation for people with disabilities,known as Aid Retarded persons, orARP.

At the time, ARP was experiencing afinancial crisis that threatened the closureof many of its services across NSW, includingLithgow, and would have resulted in theloss of employment opportunities for peoplewith disabilities in the area.

Since that time, Access Industries hadmaintained and improved the service,largely from its own resources, in order torespond to the needs of the local community.

The former Access Industries buildingwas in Hartley Valley Road and wasdestroyed by fire on the night of August 1,2013.

This was a devastating blow for the operations.

Since that time, they have been operatingin interim premises, and with the support ofseveral laundry colleagues, who haveenabled them to maintain their commitmentsto their many valued laundry customerswhile they found suitable land forthe new laundry and negotiat6ed buildingplans and Council approval to proceed.

The president Norm Drew thanked themanagement and staff of Glenray laundry atBathurst, t6he RNG Laundry at Bathurst,Healthshare Laundry in Orange, theBathurst Correctional Centre Laundry,Western White Linen, the ARV laundry inGlendenning, and the Alladin laundry inNorth Parramatta for helping us out in theirtime of need.

Thanks also was expressed to theLithgow Council for assisting us to find suitableland for their new laundry, and processingthe Development Application sothey can proceed.

Thanks was also expressed to their manyvalued business customers for theirpatience and loyalty during what has been avery difficult period and also thanks to BrettMoulds, of Brett Moulds Design and SteveWatts of Wattsbuild, who assisted with thedesign of the new laundry.

The new laundry is a major project forAccess Industries.

In total, there will be close to $3 millioninvested on the project, to cover the cost ofthe new block of land; the construction andfit out of the new building; all new modernequipment and the supply of needed servicesand utilities such as electricity and water.

When it is completed, it will be a modern,state of the art laundry providing excellentemployment conditions for all currentemployees, and hopefully for futureemployees in need of the services and support.

Mr Drew thanked the Lithgow Lions Clubfor assisting them with the celebration ofthe turning of the first sod and providingthem with the use of their trailer-barbecue,and to the Lions’ volunteers who assisted onthe day.

It is now all systems go for the future ofthe new building.

TweetFacebookJOHN Robertson says he wants to see more money from the port lease allocated to Newcastle, but has shied away from calling it an election commitment.

The state opposition leader yesterday moved to clarify comments reported in the Newcastle Herald on Wednesday, when he said he ‘‘wouldn’t speculate’’ on whether Labor would stick to the Liberal government’s commitment to spending $590 million from the $1.2 billionport lease if it was elected.

In his second visit to Newcastle in three days Mr Robertson said he wanted to make sure ‘‘not just the money that’s been promised by this government comes back to Newcastle and the Hunter, I want to see more of that money brought back’’.

‘‘Its been a dud deal for the Hunter, and every day this government continues in office more and more of that money is being spent on the north shore of Sydney, instead of Newcastle,’’ he said.

‘‘I want you to know that I want to bring more of that money back to the Hunter.’’

But Mr Robertson didn’t specify how much more money he wanted to see allocated, and when asked directly if increasing the Hunter’s allocation was an election commitment he repeated: ‘‘I’m saying, I want to bring more of that money back to Newcastle’’.

During his previous visit he stated that he wouldn’t ‘‘start throwing money around all over the place’’ until he had seen updated budget figures in December.

Mr Robertson was back in town with shadow transport minister Penny Sharpe to address a group of UGL workers about Labor’s policy to provide a 20 per cent preference for local tenderers in government purchasing decisions.
