The fundraiser will help support local efforts, including desexing and vaccination programs and rehoming impounded animals.

RSPCA secretary Margaret Payne is also hoping the event will draw more volunteers to the Inverell branch.

“What we need, more than we need anything else, is volunteers,” she said. RSPCA NSW chief executive officer Steve Coleman will speak at the fundraiser, along with Fiona Brown, who will discuss the role of animals in therapy.

Tickets are $10, and the group are currently looking to fill 50 reserved seats to ensure the event will go ahead.

Margaret promised that all money made will be put to good use in the local community.

“We don’t make money just to sit in the bank,” she said.

“When we get a substantial amount, we say ‘OK, let’s do a program.’”

Millers manager Vicki Berger said the small group work tirelessly but added, “You can’t keep doing these things if you don’t have some money behind the organisation”.

In between programs, the local branch also take submissions from pensioners and low income earners who request financial assistance for vaccination. If approved, the RSPCA cover two thirds of the cost.

“Vaccination is important, parvo kills,” Margaret said. She promised they would “never say no” to valid requests.

“It is a terrible, terrible disease. The animals suffer for the sa

BE PREPARED: Check your chimney to prevent house fires this winter. The CFA has been called to a growing number of fires caused by chimney issues in recent years.

FIREFIGHTERSare reminding residents to be careful when it comes to home heating this season.

Each winter, firefighters are called to thousands of housefires caused by preventable incidents. In Victoria, theCFA has seenan increase in the number of chimney fires from both fireplaces and solid wood heaters in recent years.

As the cooler weather kicks in,CFA is urging residents to keep themselves fire safe by checking and maintaining their fireplaces, chimneys, fireboxes and flues.

CFA South East region assistant chief officer Trevor Owen said over time there could be a build-up of creosote, a black tar-like residue, which was highly flammable and could clog up chimneys.

“Creosote is not only caused by general use, but it can also build up quicker if you are using incorrect fuels, such as green wood or treated timbers,” he said.

Use a torch to check for creosote build-up or obstructionsHave your chimney professionally cleaned annuallyOnly burn dry, clean woodDon’t leave your fire to burn after you have gone to bed or left the houseMr Owen said residents should also have gas heaters inspected and serviced to ensure the safety of loved ones.

“Every household should consider their fire safety practices and examine the potential risks around their home,” he said.

“Cooler weather conditions and the winter months are one of the riskiest times of the year for fires in the home and sadly, most of these fires can be prevented.

“Chimney fires can quickly turn into house fires so the few minutes spent now could be one of the most important fire safety actions you take this winter.”

Fireplaces can also be a fire hazard if fuels are allowed to fall out of the fireplace. A secure guard or fireproof screen should be used at all times.

If drying clothes please ensure they are positioned at least one metre away from the heat source and constantly monitored to reduce the chance of them igniting.

“One of the nicest things about winter is curling up in front of a warm fire, and with these small tips we can ensure you do this safely,” Mr Owen said.

Highlanders down Magpies

SCOTT Houston provided a late and final twist as Inverell pulled off a first round upset at Tamworth Rugby Park on Saturday.
Nanjing Night Net

QUICK HANDS: Dylan Lewis offloads the ball during a game that saw the Highlanders bring home the first round points.PHOTO: by Geoff O’Neill.

Not many expected the Highlanders to come out on top, but they did; Houston slipping through the Tamworth defence with three minutes to go, and with the conversion, usurping the home side 33-29.

The Magpies had, eight minutes earlier, through a barnstorming Sanimo Navatu, hit the front for the third time in the game.

It was indicative of what was a see-sawing arm wrestle with both sides having passages of dominance and the lead flitting between five and three points most of the game.

A delighted Highlanders co-coach Simon Clarke attributed the win to their “sheer grit and determination to never give in”.

Houston’s try typified that. First he had to recover from a scrum that was on the backfoot. Then after breaking through the Magpies line he stumbled.

But he was able to regain his footing and find his way to the line.

Clarke couldn’t have been prouder of them, especially the way they regrouped after Navatu’s try.

“All too often we seem to come off the wrong end in those games,” he said.

The win was soured by a leg injury to fullback Dylan Lewis, who, on initial reports, they could be missing for a while.

The Magpies had their own injury concerns, losing outside centre Wes Rooney in the first 10 minutes of the game.

Typically of a first round clash, it was scrappy with that cohesion and fluidity not quite there, and mistakes prevalent, whether dropped balls or passes not hitting their mark.

The Magpies were first to strike with Lewyn Rapana running a close line off five-eighth Ben Coombes and bursting through.

The Highlanders hit back through Matt McRae, the winger steaming onto a perfectly weighted grubber from five-eighth Hunter Barnett.

It seemed to spark them and they not long after took the lead with Lewis chiming in one off the ruck and surprising the Magpies defence.

They managed to scramble and grab him, but he was able to pop the ball up to prop Tom Apthorpe in support. Houston then extended their lead right on half-time, looping around to the right off a 5m scrum and muscling his way over.

Lewis added the extras from the sidelines to make it 19-7 at the break.

Tamworth came out with a renewed vigour in the second half and, on the back of tries to Pat Strong and Alistair Doyle, reclaimed the lead.

Tyson Kennedy snatched it back for the Highlanders before Navatu charged his way over to put the Magpies ahead 29-26 with 12 minutes to play.

Magpies co-coach Mark Daley was frustrated and disappointed.

It was there for them to win.

They just let themselves down with “simple, fundamental errors”.

The performance was littered with dropped balls. At one stage, he commented, it looked like they were trying to play sevens, and there was some sloppy defence.

“Full credit to them (Inverell) they took their opportunities,” he said. He thought Tom Anderson, Rapana and Navatu were their best, the latter really coming to life in the second half.

Setting the right example for children

BE SAFE: Winter is a dangerous time of year for house fires with a high percentage occurring in the cooler months. Experts say fire safety education should start in the home, with parents setting a good example for their children.

As Australian households look for ways to stay warm and cosy this winter, Wormald is reminding families to be extra vigilant about keeping their homes fire safe and discussing fire prevention with their children.

Winter is the most dangerous time of year for house fires with more than sixtyper cent of home fires occurring in the cooler months. Unfortunately, when it comes to house fire fatalities, children are in a high-risk group.

John Lynch from Wormald believes fire safety education should start in the home, with parents setting a good example for their children.

“If children see that their parents are taking fire safety seriously, they are far more likely to take it seriously as well.

“With the majority of house fires preventable, it is vital that families conduct a fire safety audit of the home. This includes ensuring that the smoke alarms are installed in the correct location, batteries been replaced with new ones (if it’s an existing alarm) and checking that fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers or fire blankets are in good working order.

“Smoke alarms, fire extinguishers and fire blankets are all essential tools for defending a home against a fire.”

Bi-riteCarey CoversFostersLyal EalesMidwest ElectricalArarat Mower CentreGilbert & JuryStephen Dalton GasfittingTJO ServicesIn addition to ensuring the home is fitted with working smoke alarms, families are encouraged to develop a fire escape plan and practice it regularly with the entire family. This can also be a fun way for children to get involved in the fire safety discussion.

A fire escape plan should start with a floor plan of the home that maps out the quickest escape route from each room and indicates where fire safety equipment is kept. The fire escape plan should then be practised regularly by the entire family including children so they don’t forget what to do in case of a fire emergency.

Wormald has the following child-friendly fire safety advice for parents to help them reduce the risk of fire in the home:

Ensure children know what the smoke alarm sounds like and they what to do if they hear it. Keep matches and lighters well out of reach of children.Ensure children are kept at a safe distance away from heaters, candles, and oil burners.Supervise children in the kitchen and keep them away from the stovetop and oven.Ensure heaters are always kept on a flat stable surface on the floor and away from curtains or other flammable items such as clothes and toys.Be aware that some children may have a natural curiosity about fire and be tempted to be involved in ‘fire play’.Related stories:
