New experience and new territories for RFDS

New experience and new territories for RFDS

News from RFDS 13 October 2021

n addition to the work the Royal Flying Doctor Service has been doing to provide vaccinations for our normal territory in regional and remote NSW, the pandemic has seen us head to a host of new locations to provide assistance.

It started with additional clinics across the Far West at the request of the Federal Government but has expanded since then to include the New England, Upper Hunter and even South Coast regions. 

While our regular clinics are based out of Broken Hill, these additional clinics have been organised from our Dubbo base. What started with small teams who flew and drove from Dubbo in early August to places like Walgett, Lightning Ridge and Grawin, it quickly expanded, requiring more staff and more vaccine.

NARRABRI? NARRABYE: FIRST-EVER PLAN FOR A GAS-FREE NSW UNVEILED

NARRABRI? NARRABYE: FIRST-EVER PLAN FOR A GAS-FREE NSW UNVEILED

Climate Council

EXACTLY ONE YEAR since Santos’ polluting and expensive Narrabri Gas Project was approved, a new report has found the gas this project would produce isn’t needed.

The report by energy analysts Northmore Gordon, which was commissioned by the Climate Council, reveals that New South Wales could reduce its annual gas demand by the same amount that the Narrabri Gas Project is forecast to produce, as soon as 2030.

“This report effectively renders the Narrabri Gas Project redundant. We already know that this project will drive up greenhouse gas emissions, worsen climate change and do nothing to reduce power prices. Now we also know the project is completely unnecessary when it comes to meeting the state’s energy needs,” said Climate Council Senior Researcher, Tim Baxter. 

“To ensure the New South Wales Government is capable of reaching its newly announced target to halve emissions by 2030 – it needs a plan to reduce gas use across the state. This new report shows them how to do it,” said Baxter.

“This is the first-ever plan that spells out how we can wean Australia’s most populous state off polluting and expensive gas using common-sense measures. This is a pathway to healthier, more affordable, and more efficient gas-free homes and businesses,” he said. 

Report Key Findings: 

  • Gas demand within New South Wales could be 70 percent lower as soon as 2030, and ​​eliminated altogether as soon as 2050, using readily available, commercially viable technologies.
  • With the right policies in place to support technologies like electric resistance heating and renewable hydrogen, gas use can be reduced in emissions-intensive industries like iron and steel manufacturing. 
  • Homes and commercial buildings are responsible for almost half of New South Wales’ gas use and meeting their needs with electricity is readily achievable with existing, commercially available technologies. 
  • Putting common-sense measures in place to reduce gas demand in New South Wales, such as electrifying homes and upgrading commercial buildings, would make the expensive and polluting Narrabri Gas Project redundant.
  • There is no shortage of gas anywhere in Australia with the growing demands of a swollen gas export industry driving supply issues, higher energy bills, and worsening climate change.
  • It is critically important for our economy, health, and climate that every state and territory transitions away from fossil fuels like gas as quickly as possible.

DRESS DETECTIVE Miss Fisher’s Wardrobe - Kate Strasdin

Monday 13 July, 2020

The phenomenal success of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries has a great deal to do with the aesthetic of the TV show – 1920s Melbourne and a glamourous protagonist! This lecture looks at the dress in the 1920s, the designers who were influencing the style and the developments that were changing the way people thought about clothes. It is also a look behind the scenes, creating Phryne Fisher’s world and the flapper style so synonymous with the decade. It was a period that began to embrace sportswear, leisurewear, shortened hems as well as outrageous parties. It also looks at menswear of the period and the changes that were beginning to take place within the masculine wardrobe.

PACKING UP THE NATION - Caroline Shenton

Monday 17 August, 2020

This is the gripping and sometimes hilarious story of how a band of heroic curators and eccentric custodians saved Britain’s national heritage during their Darkest Hour. As Hitler’s forces gathered on the other side of the Channel to threaten the UK, men and women from London’s national museums, galleries and archives forged extraordinary plans to evacuate their collections to safety. Utilising country houses from Buckinghamshire to Cumbria, tube tunnels, Welsh mines and Wiltshire quarries, a team of unlikely heroes packed up their greatest treasures in a race against time. It was the sweltering summer of 1939.

THE AMADEUS MYTH Mozart (1756-91) - Sandy Burnett

Monday 14 September

Classical music reached a peak of perfection in Vienna during the last three decades of the Eighteenth Century, an era in which every aristocratic household worth its salt had a Kapelle or band of musicians to keep every-one entertained. In particular, the refined musical discourse of the string quartet was held to be the highest form of musical art; the elegant interplay of its various string instruments likened by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe to “four intelligent people conversing”. In this talk, Sandy examines the perfect storm of circumstances that made this extraordinary era possible. He looks at selected excerpts of Classical elegance at its finest, and considers the remarkable figure of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a musician rightly prized – and mythologised – as one of the greatest ever known.

Killarney Bike Classic

27th September 2020

The Killarney Bike Classic started six years ago to raise funds for our local cancer groups and also as a way to remember a local farmer and grazier, Mark Lampe who rode from Killarney Gap to Sawn Rocks with a group of friends for an Easter get together with their families. Less than three months later, Mark lost his short battle with cancer. Mark grew up in Narrabri and loved the district. He would be so proud of the effort and support from so many people that will help make other families lives a little bit easier when they have to face the battle with cancer.

REPIN & THE WANDERERS - Kathy McLauchlan

Monday 19 October, 2020

At the start of the 19th century, Russia was still a newcomer to Europe's art scene. This lecture talks about the rise of a group of young painters known as the Wanderers who, from the 1860s onwards, forged a new and independent route for modern art. Their leading figure, Ilya Repin, evoked the realities of life through his paintings of people and landscapes. His major works would provoke admiration and controversy, establishing him as the most significant Russian painter of his time.

Comedians Mandy Nolan and Ellen Briggs are returning to the region for three free comedy shows in Wee Waa, Yetman & Bendemeer

from June 24-26. These are hosted by HealthWISE thanks to a grant from HNE

Irreverent pair Mandy Noland and Ellen Briggs are returning to the North West to give Wee Waa, Yetman and Bendemeer locals a taste of their down-to-earth comedy.
With seven children between them, the duo are not afraid to explore the ups and downs of domestic life, and have a collection of anecdotes about incidents labelled as ‘failures to parent’.
“We're 40 something mothers of teenagers, we're wives, and ex wives!” Mandy said.
“Ellen can wrangle a snake and operate a ride on mower in the afternoon, and by evening she dons heels and a frock and then she's the MC of a charity ball.”
Nothing is off the table in their act – from the beauty industry to menopause, weird TV shows, big undies, and the all-important issue of whose turn it is to unpack the dishwasher.
As ‘small town showgirls’, the pair have endless fun delivering their rapid fire routines on stage, and have a special connection to country audiences.
Hosted by HealthWISE thanks to a Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC PHN) Empowering Our Communities grant, the duo will perform free shows in Wee Waa on June 24, Yetman on June 25 and Bendemeer on June 26.
