COMMUNITY DEFIBRILLATORSThis project, in conjunction with Ambulance Victoria, was put on hold back in March, but will be reactivated shortly. We have successfully applied for grants to assist in the purchase of more community defibrillators.
We have also received some donations from local residents, but still have a shortfall, compounded by our inability to hold events during the past few months.
But we are getting back on track! we have one defibrillator , donated by ambulance Victoria, about to be installed at the shopping centre in Mornington-Flinders Rd. and another in the proces of being purchased for the Red Hill South shops. These complement the four defibrillators already installed by Lions in Red Hill and Main Ridge area. ( some have already saved lives!) This is an ongoing project, and we are looking for ways to raise funds for future defibrillators. If you would like to help please contact Lions.
PLANTING FOR MALLACOOTA AND EAST GIPPSLANDJune - October (extended till 2021)
After the bushfires, many houses in Mallacoota were destroyed and gardens decimated.
We established a project to help the residents in fire affected areas re-establish their gardens.
They have particularly requested plants which will bring colour to their gardens and attract the bees to the area.
If you would like to help with this project, we would welcome any plants you may be able to pot up.
Please email lionsnewsletter1@ gmail.com to indicate your interest and look out for signs on noticeboards.
If you have any queries, please contact above email.

School's Science ExpoRed Hill Lions have been a sponsor of the Schools Science Expo for the past three years.
This expo, which last year involved over 800 students, encourages students to expand their knowledge and confidence in the STEM curriculum.
Students present to other students and teachers, and it is an amazing event to be involved with.
The skills of the students are constantly developing along with enthusiasm for science in our schools.
Sponsorship of Ladies Football TeamRed Hill Lions Club proudly sponsors the Red Hill Ladies Football Team.
the ladies Team, under coach Heath Sanderson are developing their skill level and enjoying their competition, with several wins in their first season.
They proudly wear our logo on their warmup jackets.
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, email@example.com
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.
