THE call went out last week for the people of the Home Hill community to show an interest in the Local Ambulance Committee by putting their hands up to reform the group in the town.
The Conference of State Local Ambulance Committees, which was held in the Burdekin in August, was successfully run by the “Ayr and Home Hill Local Ambulance Committees”, but with only one member of the Home Hill Committee, obviously the majority of the effort came from the Ayr members.
The Home Hill community once boasted a very active Home Hill LAC, which was prominent in fundraising when they held stalls in front of the former ambulance building at festival time and on other occasions.
Unfortunately, like a lot of organisations, volunteer numbers have fallen away and there is a desperate need for local residents to show an interest again and offer their assistance.
We all depend on our Ambulance officers and it is important that they receive all the support that can be offered.
If you do have some time available, contact the Ayr Secretary and add your name to the one current Home Hill member of the LAC.
