Defibrillator ProgramRed Hill District Lions have installed four defibrillators in the Red Hill / Main Ridge area.
They are placed at
* Red Hill Consolidated School
* Red Hill Pharmacy
* Main Ridge Tennis Club
* Main Ridge Men's Shed.
In placing the defibrillators we stipulate that they are accessible to the public and registered with triple zero.
If you ring for an ambulance and a defibrillator is considered necessary, they will tell you where your nearest defib is located.
One of the defibs was used to save a life last Christmas holidays.
In our community, which is a distance from the nearest ambulance station, we hope these appliances will provide some assistance in an emergency.
Further placement may be considered in the future.
If you would like to know more about this program, please contact Jane Duncan, Defibrillator Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org
Main Ridge Men's ShedFor a couple of years the Red Hill District Lions Club had been discussing the possibility of establishing a Men’s Shed in the Hinterland.
Following the building of a new CFA station in Main Ridge, moves were made to utilise the old CFA building to establish a Men’s Shed . This proposal had the support of the Main Ridge CFA members, Lions Club members, Main Ridge Probus, and Main Ridge Bowls Club .
The Men's Shed opened in July 2015. It operates on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. A session for Ladies in the Shed runs on Tuesday 2 pm - 5 pm. Members can work on personal projects, community projects (such as the shelving above for the Red Hill Consolidated School) or just enjoy a cuppa and a chat.

RIDE FOR SIGHT 2018So sad. The rest of the ride has been called off due to the weather conditions being unsafe for it to continue. We are all disappointed but we can't do anything about the weather.
Now to Inverloch by vehicle for lunch and presentations with a little bit of light entertainment.
It's been a fabulous adventure and already our fundraising has hit a new high, with more funds yet to be received.
Congrats to committee, the cyclists, volunteers and all the Lions Clubs involved along the way for everything running to plan, on time and with safety. Again thanks to Lions for feeding us and organising accommodation and other details.
