HELPING OUR FIRIES: Maurice McMillen and Tom Shirt pick up the new bus. lm020714firebusRURAL Fire Service volunteersin the central west area will travel in comfort with the presentation of a Ford Transit Bus by the Rural Fire Service Association (RFSA).

The new bus will be based at Bathurst and will be available to be used by volunteers in the Oberon, Lithgowand Bathurst Local Government areas.

Peter Mason, RFSA Division Chairperson, said he was delighted the RFSA was able to provide such a valuable asset to local volunteers and demonstrate how valuable the RFSA is in supporting rural fire fighting volunteers across the state.

“The RFSA provided more than one million dollars worth of equipment to brigades and Rural Fire Service Districts right across the state in 2013 through its annual grant scheme.

“The bus is a classic example of how the association supports its members.

“It will be an invaluable asset for all brigade members in the Central Tablelands as it will reduce the time each individual has to drive, with the bus now available to transport volunteers during major incidents and for training purposes.”

NSW Rural Fire Service Team Manager for Chifley-Lithgow Superintendent Tom Shirt said the bus was a fantastic asset to have for volunteers in the region.

“The new vehicle will enable us to move our volunteers from staging points at major fires back to their accommodation safely,” Superintendent Shirt said.

Maurice McMillen, a Group Officer in the Chifley Zone who was a strong advocate for the grant application, was delighted to collect the vehicle.

“This bus will assist us in moving volunteers to training exercises and other activities in the Bathurst, Oberon and Lithgow areas and around the state.

“It’s great the RFSA has made this bus available through its grant scheme.”

The RFSA grant scheme provides financial assistance to individual brigades, support groups and districts for purposes not covered by direct government or council funding.

“The best thing is we are about to see the start of the grants process all over again with applications for the 2014 RFSA grants to be open in February,” Mr Mason said.

“Brigades right across the local area can apply for a wide variety of things and this year we are producing a catalogue so the brigades can see what they can apply for but it’s not only limited to these items.”

RFSA grants support initiatives that are often beyond the funding capacity of individual brigades in NSW, particularly smaller brigades in remote locations, with distribution priorities on a needs basis to improve the welfare of volunteer fire fighters and to support initiatives that would benefit the wider community.

Barman bashed as Smithtown Bowling Club is robbed

09/07/2018 | 南京夜网 | Permalink

A VIOLENT robbery at the Smithtown Bowling Club has added further uncertainty to the future of the struggling club.
Nanjing Night Net

About 10pm on Friday, two unknown, balaclava-wearing men confronted the bar manager inside the club at closing time, as he was attending to the safe.

The two men allegedly assaulted the barman, punching and kicking him repeatedly.

A substantial amount of money was taken by the two offenders, who fled the club.

The 25-year-old bar manager was treated at the scene by ambulance officers and taken to Kempsey District Hospital, where he received further treatment for concussion, cuts and bruises to his forehead, right eye and cheek.

Smithtown Bowling Club president Geoff Duffy said yesterday that it was a shame this had happened to the club.

The club was struggling, but his first thoughts were for the injured bar worker.

“He is out of hospital now but he is still pretty shaken up,” Mr Duffy said.

“He will be off work indefinitely, that’s for sure.

“This is really the last thing we needed because the club is really doing it tough at the moment and we have to seriously consider our future and whether we can stay open as a going concern.

“Things like this are just one more problem we don’t need.”

Mr Duffy said the club might be forced to close.

“A special meeting will be held at the Smithtown Bowling Club in March at which members will be asked to decide the future of the club,” he said.

“We are covered by insurance for the loss on Friday but we could have done without the injuries to our staff member.”

Any person who may have any information in relation to the incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Kempsey Police on 6561 6199.

Tough going: Smithtown Bowling Club President Geoff Duffy says the future is not looking great for the struggling club and the robbery on Friday night has just added to their problems. His main concern, however, is for the injured bar worker

Take me back

TAKE me Back to Robe – SA’s favourite seaside town is the bold new marketing campaign for the Robe Tourism Association.

The new brand was launched last week to coincide with the new “Escape to the Coast” – A road trip to Robe through the Limestone Coast produced by SA Tourism and its “through local eyes” film project.

The newly formed Robe Tourism Association marketing team of Deb Mackey, Anne Legoe, Lisa Enright and Kristal Tonkin – all volunteers – have worked with SATC to come up with their new brand which they hope will showcase Robe’s past, present and future.

“It was our vision in the first place (SA’s favourite seaside town),” said Mrs Mackey.

“(We) just didn’t know if we could own it.”

Once the sub-committee decided to run with the idea, the brainstorming began.

“SATC came to Robe and backed our new brand when we delivered it to the rest of the association,” said Mrs Mackey.

There was unanimous support and the team have been busy behind closed doors ever since – until now.

The new ROBE, South Australia. Take me Back. Facebook page went live last Monday and within three days had clocked up 1000 likes.

What’s even more incredible is that all the marketing initiatives have been free.

“The association had just reformed after a five year hiatus,” said Mrs Legoe.

“There was no budget for marketing, so we had to look at things differently.

“We asked the association to give us the mandate to go ahead and that we would show them what can be achieved on no funds.

“The Robe District Council must also be commended on the trust they have shown our little sub-committee.

“They understand what we are trying to achieve and have backed us all the way.”

The sub-committee has taken to social media in a big way to put Robe out there for a generation of people who are technology savvy.

YouTube clips, Facebook page and Instagram are just the first steps towards encouraging not only return visitors but new ones too.

Another milestone for the sub-committee was a post of the “Escape to the Coast” film clip on The Real SA Facebook page.

On Thursday the film was shared to all of their 50,000 followers with the message “Vineyards and beaches on the road trip down to Robe – the perfect seaside town on the Limestone Coast”.

For those not familiar with social media this is a huge feat for Robe and the sub-committee as it means even more exposure.

Robe has always been a popular tourist hub in the busy summer season, but what this clip and the new branding aim to do is encourage visitors to enjoy Robe outside of it’s peak season.

“We wanted to make it right, and we made a conscious decision not to rush it,” Mrs Legoe said.

“Things get rushed in Robe over summer, we wanted to create a reason for people to come back after the summer season.”

The sub-committee is also reaching out to its Limestone Coast neighbours.

“We are heading to Naracoorte later in the month to chat with their tourism association as well and hope to begin collaborations with other towns in our area”, Mrs Mackey said.

“We are stronger as a collective than on our own”, added Mrs Legoe.

Now that the social media side is humming and the new brand has been released the ladies will go back behind closed doors and continue preparations for the next big unveiling.

“The next step is quite a statement”, said Mrs Mackey.

“This brand has captured the essence of Robe but more than that it is based on a sense of pride.

“If you take a look at the social sites wouldn’t you want to be Taken Back to Robe?”

To check out the new Facebook page visit www.facebook南京夜网/robesouthaustralia and join in the conversation or share your fond Robe memories and stories.

“Take me Back to Robe can mean a number of things,” said Ms Tonkin.

“It’s take me back to yesterday’s Robe, or it’s take me back to Robe 50 years ago.”

Six-car crash in Golden Square

UPDATE, NOON: Constable Lee Clayton said eight cars were involved in the incident.
Nanjing Night Net

Two cars were towed from the scene and traffic is now flowing as usual.

“What a mess,” Constable Claytonsaid.

“There was one car attempting to make a right-hand turn, another car has stopped, neither of those two were hit.

“Then the third in the chain has jumped on the brakes, the fourth in the chain has stopped before it hit the third but has then been shunted into the third when the fourth was hit by the fifth.”

Constable Clayton said six cars were damaged in the incident.

“There were eight involved,” he said.

“It’s bad, poor driving.

“People are not paying attention and leaving enough distance between cars.

“People are just sitting too close – it’s failure to maintain a safe distance.

“People don’t seem to get the message that they will still get where they are going every bit as quick.

“It’s just inattention and impatience.

“It’s the sort of accident that just should not happen.”

A female was taken to hospital with superficial injuries to her wrist.

UPDATE 11.10AM: Another two cars were involved in the incident.

One woman, who did not wishto be named, said it was like a domino effect.

“It was just like bang, bang,bang,” she said.

EARLIER:Police have been called to a four-car crash in High Street, Golden Square.

It appears a vehicle was attempting to turn right.

More to come.

VIDEO, PHOTOS: Darcy Tucker wins Wimmera Sports Star of the Year Award

DARCY Tucker etched his name into Wimmera sporting lore on Monday night when he was crowned the Wimmera Sports Star of the Year.
Nanjing Night Net

Tucker won from a star-studded field that included former winners Ken Bald and Ash Bolwell and several other athletes who excelled at the local, state and national level.

He was rewarded for an outstanding year, which saw him win a national title with the Vic Country football team and earn a level one scholarship to the exclusive AIS-AFL Academy.

Tucker was one of only 30 junior players in the country to receive a level one scholarship.

His strong form saw him picked for an Australian under-17 team to play New Zealand last month, and Tucker was named among Australia’s best in a four-point win.

Despite his performances, Tucker said he was shocked to be named Sports Star of the Year.

“It was very unexpected and I was very humbled,” he said.

“The talent of all the other nominees is national level and state level so I didn’t expect, being a 17-year-old, to get the award.”
