Town in mourning Ocean Grove Voice

By Justin Flynn

An Ocean Grove woman who died in a house fire last week is being remembered as a dedicated mother who brightened the lives of everyone she met.

Dawn Webster died when flames engulfed her Arcturus Road home on Monday night.

Ms Websters 16-year-old son Xepheren described his mother as a mystical, marvellous and absolutely ace woman who will remain in the hearts and minds of those she loved and those who loved her.

The world is now a whole lot less glittery, Xepheren told the Voice.

Xepheren, a student at Bellarine Secondary Colleges Drysdale campus, posted a picture of his mother on his Facebook page as a tribute.

Always. RIP my dear sweet magical beautiful Dawn!, one poster replied.

She was an amazing woman, another wrote.

The Ocean Grove community is mourning the mother and grandmother, who was a drama and psychology teacher at Bellarine Secondary Colleges Drysdale campus.

Police are not treating the fire as suspicious, but are yet to determine the cause.

More than 20 firefighters were called to the property.

Mourners placed floral tributes to Ms Webster outside her Arcturus Road rental home.

One local decided to pay her own tribute to Ms Webster on her Facebook site by tying a yellow ribbon outside her home and business.

Yellow ribbons are a sign of remembrance, she wrote.

I will be tying a yellow ribbon at our home and business to let the family know that we are thinking of them.

I do not know the family, but I want to let the family know that we care, that we are sorry and we acknowledge someone has passed.

SCG appearance for Cobras Ocean Grove Voice

By Justin Flynn

A large group of local junior footballers and family members were lucky enough to step foot onto the hallowed turf of the Sydney Cricket Ground.

A total of 140 players and parents from Ocean Grove Collendina Cobras and Glebe Greyhounds got to do a lap of the SCG and then form a guard of honour for the Geelong Cats AFL players as they entered the playing field to take on the Sydney Swans.

The excursion was for local charity, Rivers Gift, which is the largest source of funding for sudden infant death syndrome research in Australia.

Glebe Greyhouds are based in the inner Sydney suburb of Glebe and came down to Ocean Grove last year for a match against the Cobras.

The Cobras returned the favour this year with two games against the Greyhounds.

The Greyhounds formed a guard of honour for the Swans players, while the Cobras enjoyed getting high-gives from the Cats players as they entered the SCG.

Rivers Gift general manager Karl Waddell says it will be massive to have the Greyhounds and Cobras bring in the Swans home game.

To have presence on the AFL stage is really big for us, Waddell said.

Weve built a charity from scratch and six and a half years on were going to have presence on a national football stage, which is just massive for us. Its great coverage and to have the young kids fundraising on our behalf and honouring our little man and our charity is really special.

The fundraising is the bread and butter. Its what keeps us driving our initiatives. Weve raised more than a million dollars in six and a half years and thats not with any government funding. Its all community-based charity-giving.

Rivers Gift was founded in 2011 after the passing of the son of Waddell and his wife Alex.

River Jak Adam was born in July of 2011 and passed away in his cot in November later that year.

His parents established Rivers Gift off their own bat and have since held a number of marquee fundraising events, invested in SIDS research and raised a wealth of awareness.
