Hazard Reduction, Hoses and Vehicles
All drivers of vehicles (including golf buggies and bikes) are asked to ensure they do not run over the canvas fire hoses when SIRFB are undertaking hazard reduction.
Fire hoses can be damaged or destroyed if they are run over when in use as the canvas line splits easily.  In addition when the line splits it can cause a pressure irregularity which can also damage the fire pump.
So, please keep your eyes open for fire hoses on or near the road.  This is particularly important over the next few weeks as there is an ongoing program of hazard reduction in various places around the island.
Accordingly if there is a fire hose blocking the road, you will need to find another way round it or wait until it has been removed.

OXFAM 'Exchange for Change' Fundraiser

(Shopping made fun for fashionistas with a conscience!).
Exchange for Change was created by four Australian gals who thought they had enough in their wardrobes and wanted to do more in the world. They realised that ‘new’ does feel good but that ‘new’ doesn’t have to be ‘brand new’.

Exchange for Change is a new fundraising event that lets you experience the thrill of shopping for next to no cost and at the same time supporting Oxfam Australia in their invaluable work around the world.

During the month of September, Oxfam is encouraging people to host an event where women’s clothing/accessories — items they no longer love or want — are exchanged.

Where we come in.
The way it works is fairly simple:
You bring your unwanted items (up to a maximum of six) and receive a token for each. These tokens are then exchanged for an item someone else has brought along.
Each person will also be issued with a number — the duplicate of which goes into a handbag to be drawn at a later stage — raffle style.
As each number is drawn — that person chooses one item from stock.
This happens ‘twice’ — then depending on how many tokens you have left — it’s grab as you can.

    When:  Saturday, 26th September, 2009.

    Where:  South Elvina Park (Near fireshed).

    Time:   2.30 p.m. sharp. (Arrival and clothing drop off).

    What to bring: Clothing (on hangers), handbags, shoes, belts, jewellery, baby clothes, maternity clothes — all in great condition.

    You make a tax-deductible donation of $20 entrance fee — more if you wish.

    Come join us for some bargains, fun, wine and nibbles.
