Bubs Club is a welcome weekly
relief session that provides
you with the perfect excuse
to get out of your pyjamas
and actually leave the house.
It allows you to socialise with
other mums (and dads) who are
also on the exponential learning
curve and roller coaster ride of
experiences and emotions of
being new parents. The other
mums provide a great support
network and listening to their
experiences and concerns helps
you realise that you are normal
and not everything necessarily
comes easily and naturally. The

Australia Day fires
A grass fire burnt 70ha at the Bunyan
airfield on Australia Day last week.
Fire crews were called at 2.15pm
when a slasher on a tractor overheated
and caught alight. With the hot
conditions and the dense African
Lovegrass, the blaze became out of
control quickly. Rural Fire Service (RFS)
crews from Cooma, Colinton, Bredbo,
Numeralla and Adaminaby attended
with a brigade from Cooma Fire and
Rescue NSW and some contractors
with bulk water trucks.
Police also attended, having to close
the highway periodically due to smoke
during the burn.
The fire was not contained until 8pm
Another fire burnt 15 to 20ha of
bush, 1km from the pumping station
on Shannons Flat Road. Crews arrived
at approximately 4pm on Australia Day
and continued to work to finally get the
fire under control at 2.30am. Crews
from Shannons Flat, Cooma, Dry
Plains and Adaminaby attended with
the Brothers Brigade. The cause of the
fire is under investigation.
A second fire on Shannons Flat
Road was reported at around the
same time, however passers-by were
able to contain the fire before fire
crews arrived. The fire was on the side
of the road about 25km out of Cooma.
The cause of this fire is also still under
Earlier in the week, another fire was
reported on the side of Middlingbank
Road approximately 6km from
Berridale. This was also contained by
passers-by until the fire crew arrived
