Most of us know someone who has had, or
is currently receiving, treatment for cancer.
The members of the Jindabyne branch
of the CWA are among them. One of their
favourite and longest serving members,
Carole Morris, is currently undergoing
chemotherapy treatment at the Cooma
On a recent visit, Carole asked the
nursing staff if the unit needed medical
equipment that the Jindabyne CWA could
help fund. The answer was a big YES! Two
more four-pronged IV stands please!! Nurse
Manager Julie Spring explained that the
four pronged stands are invaluable when
treating patients who require complex
oncology medications as the extra prongs
eliminate the need for the constant
switching around of medication bags.
When the proposal to fund the purchase
of two multi-pronged IV stands for the
Oncology Unit was put to the January
meeting of the Jindabyne CWA, the
members had no hesitation in approving a
donation of $450.
A small group from the branch had
much pleasure in presenting the cheque to
the staff at the Cooma Oncology Unit on
Wednesday January 17.
Julie Spring received the cheque from
Barbara Daley with members of the
Jindabyne CWA and Sandy Nagle from the
Cooma Oncology Unit.
Preventing Falls, Promoting ‘LiFE’ in Nimmitabel
Are you over 60 and concerned about your balance?
Have you tripped or fallen over in the past year or are you
worried about falling? Perhaps you are finding it harder to get out
of a chair than you used to?
LiFE is a free program which teaches you to incorporate some
simple leg strengthening and balance activities into your daily tasks
These activities have been shown to reduce the risk of falling.
The program runs for one hour each week for five weeks and each
participant also has an individual appointment at the start and
finish of the program.
When: Mondays 10am starting February 5, (Jindabyne)
Thursdays 2:30pm starting February 8, (Nimmitabel)
Where: Jindabyne Bowling and Sports Club (TBC)
Nimmitabel Pioneer Memorial Hall
What: Free seven-week falls prevention exercise program
Who: People aged 60+, living at home, able to walk
independently (with or without a walking aid), not diagnosed with
Kate Greenwood, a Health Promotion Officer with Grand Pacific
Health, has run successful programs in Jindabyne, Bombala and
Berridale during 2017 and is looking forward to delivering LiFE in
Nimmitabel as well as a second program in Jindabyne:
“One in three people aged over 65 fall over at least once per
year and falls put more seniors in hospital than any other cause, so
there is a real need for programs like this”, she said.
“What makes LiFE different from other programs is that
people do not have to set aside special “exercise” time each
day, something that many of us find difficult to do. Instead, LiFE
activities are done throughout the day, such as when washing
dishes, hanging out washing or cleaning our teeth.”
The LiFE program is being conducted by Grand Pacific Health. A
doctor’s referral is not required.
If you are interested, or want to know if this program suits you,

A man was charged with a high range PCA after
blowing 0.211 near Michelago on Thursday
The 77-year-old ACT man was seen to be
swerving onto the opposite side of the road
and driving in a dangerous manner on the
Monaro Highway. Civilians were able to stop the
vehicle. They noticed a strong smell of alcohol
and observed an open bottle of alcohol in the
man’s car. Police attended and took the driver
to Queanbeyan police station for a blood alcohol
reading. The driver was suspended from driving in
On Friday January 19, a 57-year-old male was
charged with a mid range PCA offence. Returning

On Sunday January 21, a group of four hikers
were extracted from Kosciuszko National Park
after becoming dehydrated. A helicopter from
Canberra winched in a paramedic to assist at
4.30pm, however due to the conditions, the hikers
could not be removed until 11.40pm, when they
were returned to the Geehi camping ground.
A fire was started by a tractor and plough
striking a rock at Numbla Vale on Saturday
January 20. The local Rural Fire Service (RFS)
truck was on a maintenance run at the time and
was able to respond quickly.
RFS crews say this incident should serve as
an eye opener. Although a plough hitting a rock
and causing a spark is a common occurrence, in
the current conditions, it can easily develop into
a dangerous fire. RFS would like to encourage
property owners to be cautious in these dry
conditions, with the country ready to burn.
A driver was trapped in their vehicle after going
down an embankment west of Adaminaby on
Sunday January 21. RFS were called to the scene
at 2am to free the driver who could not open
the doors or move the vehicle due to the thick
Monaro RFS crew members were sent to
Braidwood and Goulburn over the weekend to
assist in fighting various fires in those areas. They
were also conducting lightning detection flights
across the region.
Cooma’s Fire and Rescue NSW team attended
a barbecue fire in Cooma on Friday January 19.
The hose from the gas tank to the barbecue was
leaking, which caused the barbecue to become
alight. Firefighters attended and extinguished the

The team was also called to Centennial Plaza in
Cooma after a person broke the fire alarm device
causing the sprinklers to start in the car park at
about 2.30pm on Sunday January 21. The person
was recorded by surveillance cameras and was
reprimanded by police.
