Saturday, 16 February, 2019

Angels come in all shapes and sizes, and Gunnedah had a visit from an unlikely angel in a T Model Ford on Friday.

Heading home: Lindsay Bell with his T Model Ford “Lizzy” stops over in Gunnedah.

Lindsay Bell, a Lion from Morayfield in Queensland and an Angel Flight Australia supporter, and his wife Valmay arrived in Gunnedah as one of the last stages in a great adventure that has taken them around Australia.

The Bells, along with three other vintage cars, took their 1923 T Model Ford “Lizzy” up across the top of Australia before coming back across the Nullabor.

Mr Bell said the 280km-a-day journey had brought with it some unexpected adventures.

“The spokes in the wheels are wood and they shrunk and came loose,” he said.

“We put all new tyres on when we left, but these aren’t modern tyres. We got to Perth and needed new tyres.”

Mr Bell, a former pilot, can no longer fly because of hearing loss, but has found ways to support Angel Flight from the ground, including this fund-raising adventure.

He has also assisted with about 160 Angel Flight missions, helping country people make it to medical facilities.

The Bells have done it tough in the heat, camping overnight and travelling without air-conditioning across the country.

They were looking forward to a return to Morayfield early this week.

“I am going to make myself a good cup of tea, sit down and enjoy watching the grass grow,” Mr Bell said.

“Lizzy” met with trouble when they got to Bathurst and is returning home on the back of a trailer, but Mr Bell said it wouldn’t be long before she was back on the road.

“She’s a great girl, we’ve had a lot of fun in her,” he said. “She is a most honest vehicle.”

The couple also have a 1912 T Model Ford at home that goes by the name of “Margaret”.

The Bells said they had met some wonderful people on their travels, including caravanners and Lions members.

The trip aimed at raising awareness of Angel Flight and funds to help the service.

THREE Pauls and a Jamie – it sounds like the start of a joke.

Paul Jones, Paul Turner, Paul Stares and Jamie Stokes guided Mittagong thirds to a comprehensive win over Bundanoon on Saturday.

Bundanoon captain Andrew Hore won the toss and elected to bat first.

Despite the best efforts of Hore and Neil Xavier (20 each), Bundanoon was eventually bundled out for 68 in the 16th over.

Stares led the Mittagong attack with 4/18 off six overs, while Jones took 4/14 from 3.3 overs.

The visitors had little trouble in reply, passing the total in 15.4 overs for the loss of just two wickets.

Turner top scored with 25no and received great support from Stokes (20no).

Mittagong captain Phil Aitkon praised his team for a great performance with the ball.

“We held our catches and then chased down the runs pretty easily.

“I’m a happy captain.”

Conversely, Hore said it was “one of those games you want to forget”.

“We were terrible with the bat.”

Saturday, 16 February, 2019

TROPHY: Nitin Kharod and Rajinder Chauham were among the many people who were able to hold the International Cricket Trophy on Monday at ETSA Oval.

The tour coincided with the Lord Tavener’s Indigenous Cricket Carnival held on Sunday and Monday.

The six-team Twenty20 format carnival was headlined by under 23 Australian Indigenous cricketer and South Australian under 17 captain Ayden McGregor-Baptista.

Mr McGregor-Baptista said his first game was on Sunday against Port Augusta and played in Quorn.

“The facilities in Quorn were fantastic,” he said.

“The game was demanding but it was all good fun.”

At ETSA Oval on Monday, there were family friendly activities throughout the day with local schools and visiting schools having the opportunity to see the World Cup trophy.

With just under 80 days until the 2015 world cup, the tour is bringing awareness to the tournament as well as bringing the trophy to communities.

The tour will take three months and visit the seven host cities and finish on Australia Day in 2015.

Cricket World Cup community engagement manager Cameron McLeod said a family travelled 160 kilometres to Jamestown to see the trophy on Sunday.

The World Cup begins on February 14 with Australia taking on England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and closer to home current champions India taking on Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval.
