Now, almost instantly, you can register to become a donor on a mobile phone, tablet or computer. Across the nation last year, 503 deceased and 267 living donors contributed to a record 1713 people receiving donated organs. Research shows that more than two-thirds of Australians are willing to become organ and tissue donors. But only one-third have taken the step of joining the Australian Organ Donor Register. With around 1400 Australians currently waiting for a transplant, I m asking everyone in Hume to join the register as soon as possible. Jump online, type in the words donatelife and register, and sign up using the simple, five-line form. It was important those considering to sign up as donors discuss their decision with loved ones. Along with the new online registration form at Australians can still join the Australian Organ Donor Register online via the mygov, Medicare Express Plus and Department of Human Services websites, and by submitting printed forms.

You may recall, last month, I ran a story from September 1953 about the 47th annual dinner, at the Hall, for the Bungonia Rifle Club. Seems we still have people in the area who remember attending that event ( as a child ) and the possum making his entrance along the steel rods across the roof and the possum urinating on the mostly bald heads. The Mrs Cooper, mentioned in that article, used to live in the house directly opposite the Hall. * * * Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : ), Monday 29 April 1935, page 5 ENDED IN HOSPITAL Falling from his motor cycle near the 12 miles peg on the Goulburn -Bungonia road yesterday, Bruce Squires, who resides on the Bungonia road, suffered concussion and cuts and bruises to the head, face and left hand. A Goulburn District Ambulance car on its way to Bungonia to attend to a case went to the aid of Squires and conveyed him some miles back towards Goulburn until it was met by a second ambulance, which had been summoned. Squires, who intended taking part in a football match at Bungonia, finished up a patient at the District Hospital. His condition to-day was reported to be satisfactory. * * * Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : ), Thursday 2 December 1915, page 2 SMART PIECE OF WORK. On Tuesday afternoon a horse which was attached to a spring cart and was being driven by a little boy named Don Trotter, son of Constable Trotter, along Bourke-street bolted. The little fellow hung on to the reins, though the animal was lashing out furiously, breaking the harness and smashing the front of the vehicle. Turning down Montague-street, the animal galloped into Auburn-street. When in front of Hollis and Co.'s pharmacy Mr. E. H. Gale, a bystander, who was on the footpath, ran out, sprang into the cart over the tailboard, and brought the horse to a standstill at the Bank of New South Wales. Those who saw the plucky act describe it as a smart piece of work. When the horse was pulled up the little driver had collapsed. The animal was cut about the hocks and the vehicle and harness were damaged. * * * Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : ), Saturday 22 December 1883, page 3 TOWN TALK.

( From a Correspondent. ) BUNGONIA TIMES is a NOT FOR PROFIT organisation that is now into it s 27th year. This publication can ONLY exist through the sponsorship of those who advertise in this publication and in order to advertise, you also need to pay for the extremely low costs of your adds. You will NOT find cheaper advertising anywhere. It has been noticed that the Bungonia Facebook Group, together with other Community Facebook Groups, are now being flooded with local businesses who are seeking no cost advertising which is having an impact on this, and other Community, publications. Not all community members are on Facebook, or for that matter, even have internet - thus the importance of these types of publications. To publish each and every issue of the Bungonia Times costs around $266 per month - and that is just the cost of printing and that cost can ONLY be met by advertisers and those advertisers paying their bills. These Facebook Groups were not set up for advertising but a portal to keep those locals on Facebook informed of the happenings ( both criminal and social ) around our area. Shortly, adverts that appear on the Bungonia Facebook Group will no longer be accepted. If you wish to advertise, please support your Community Newspapers by advertising within their pages and pay immediately instead of us having to continually chase you for payment of your advertisement. Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : ), Thursday 12 April 1923, page 2 STUDDART - CRIPPS-CLARK The Sydney Sun reports: The marriage of Miss Geraldine Cripps -Clark, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.. H. Cripps-Clark, of Brisbane Grove, Goulburn, at St. James's on Wednesday afternoon, has an unusual interest. The bride's grandfather, the late Major Archibald Clunes Innes, was married in the same church to Margaret Macleay, niece of Sir William Macleay, in the early thirties.

Picnic to the Look-Down. The members of the above society celebrated the King's Birthday by having a picnic to the Look -Down. The party comprised about fifty, including a number of ladies. A. start was made from St. Saviour's Cathedral at 5.!5 a m. in two drags, one hired from the Royal Hotel and one from Lake's livery stables, and a private buggy. The day was an ideal one for outdoor enjoyment. The drive across the plains and through the village of Bungonia revealed a promise of a very bountiful harvest, and the country in its spring garb wore its most pleasant aspect. The cave accommodation shed was reached about 8 30, and the distance between there and the Look-Down having been accomplished the cooks and waitresses of the party were soon occupied in preparing an al fresco repast. After the refreshments, which were provided by the ladies, had been partaken of the picnickers set themselves to spend the morning in the way best suited to their tastes. Some took themselves to the various points from which good views of the Look-Down could be obtained. A few of the more adventurous formed a party and descended to the valley underneath. The result was described as worth the toilsome journey. Others availed themselves of an opportunity for a stroll to obtain ferns and wild flower's, which abound in profusion this season. Lunch was ready by one o'clock, and was thoroughly enjoyed. Afterwards the party again dispersed to amuse themselves according to their bent. Tea was served about 4.30 p.m. The toast of the King was loyally honoured in " the cup that cheers." The return journey was begun about five o'clock, and town was safely reached by 8.30, the way being enlivened by songs. Before dispersing at the Cathedral cheers were given for the ladies who had so generously provided the edibles. All who attended the picnic much appreciated the day's outing. Found out that my toaster wasn t waterproof. I was shocked

10 Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : ), Thursday 16 October 1919, page 4 Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : ), Thursday 1 April 1937, page 3 DISTRICT NEWS BUNGONIA. (From Our Correspondent.) Welcome home.- Friday last was the finish of the receptions for our lads returning from the front, as there are no more to come, so all is well that ends well. A reception, which took the form of a banquet and presentation, followed by a dance, was given to Gunner A. L. Chapman, Trooper C. Studdard, Pte. W. Roberts and his bride, G. Roberts, and W. Sullivan. Pte. Ken. Styles, who was included in the batch, put an apology from Sydney. His father, ex-councillor Styles, acted on his behalf. The local ladies, with their usual kind hospitality, had everything in applie pie order, and the P.A. Hall had had the best of attention in the way of decorating. The usual toasts were honoured, and the speech making was in very flattering terms of the boys. Cr. Broadhead made the presentations, which included, a gold chain to one and a gold watch to another. The lads returned thanks, and expressed their delight at being back again. The hall was then cleared, and the remainder of the night devoted to a dance to the music of Miss Myrie Armstrong (piano), with occasional assistance from the spectators. The Goulburn musical talent joined in the reception with their comic songs and recitations. Progress Meeting.- The annual meeting was held on Saturday last. Mr. Marsh Broadhead presided. The secretary's report was read. It was very satisfactory. So also were the treasurer's report and balance -sheet. After deducting expenses for improvements and extra expense for purchase of furniture there was still a balance in hand. The past year was a go-slow business for the association, as it had to stand off and let the war take its course. Now that the war is over and the association has a peaceful year to commence with, all that is required to get a good footing is a general break in the drought in order that people could pull themselves together and make up for the losses they have sustained during the past year or two. BUNGONIA FETE Annual Harvest.

11 Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : ), Tuesday 23 February 1932, page 3 GOLD LEASE Trouble Over Claim.. INQUIRY BY WARDEN Allegations of claim jumping in respect of a 25-acre gold lease at Bungonia, held by J. Titley; formed the subject of an inquiry by the Mining Warden, Mr, M. E. Soane, at the Goulburn Court House yesterday. The warden's finding was that, on the evidence submitted, the land, at the time it was taken possession of by Titley, was not held by any person holding a miner's right. He intimated his intention of notifying the Minister of Mines to this effect. Mr. F. Duncombe, it is understood, was responsible for bringing the matter before the Mines Department through Mr. W. Davies, M.L..A and although both were called as witnesses to substantiate the allegations, neither appeared. Mr. J. W. Titley and Mr. W. J. Daniells appeared as witnesses in defence of the charges. William John Daniells, who gave his occupation as a miner and his address as Spring Creek, Bungonia, gave evidence that in October last he entered into an agreement with eight others to apply for an authority to enter D. M. Broadhead's land at Inverary Park, Bungonia. Members of the syndicate were: Messrs. F. Duncombe, H. Colhoun, G. Dovers, R. Shepherd, H. Williams, E. Gunn, J. Short and T. Knight. The understanding, according to Daniells, was that the others would provide him with the necessary financial backing, but he claimed that he was left to his own resources, and finally withdrew his application. Before taking action, said witness, he gave the syndicate seven days' notice of his intention, but they did not bother to send a representative along until the afternoon of the seventh day - half an hour before the Warden's Court closed. QUARTZ SAMPLES While engaged on the authority to enter, mentioned in his evidence previously, Daniells, together with Harry Williams and Ernest Gunn, were prospecting in the vicinity and found quartz, samples of which were taken home. As Williams and Gunn did not appear to show any further concern about the quartz discovery, Daniells said he pegged out the land as a prospecting area in the name of a friend of his, Alf. Shepherd. When Williams and Gunn, said Daniells, found that the reef was panning out well, they expressed their desire to come in, Daniells and Shepherd ultimately agreeing. Gunn, it was alleged later went to Wollongong, where, unbeknown to witness and his partner, he arranged for the other members of the original syndicate to come in as shareholders in the prospecting claim. Shepherd was in accord with this arrangement, provided the others found the finance, and Daniells finally went to Wollongong, giving the syndicate seven days in which to find the necessary money. Their proposal then, said Daniells, was that they should work the claim and that he should be responsible for arranging the finance. He would not agree to this. He continued to work on his own, but in September withdrew the authority to enter and abandoned the prospecting claim. He had not done any work on the claim since that date. Questioned by the warden, Daniells said the syndicate had not fulfilled the promises that had been made to him. " In fact, " he added, " Gunn and Williams were the only ones who had any right to work on the claim, and had they done so I would not have abandoned it. " It was not true that he handed the claim over to Titley. Witness had abandoned it in September and Titley had not taken it over until November. TITLEY'S EVIDENCE, James William Titley, a miner, residing at Bungonia, said he had applied through the Warden's Court for the 2 acres lease which was the subject of the inquiry, having taken possession in the prescribed manner on November 4, At that time there was nothing to indicate that the land was held under the Mining Act by anybody else. He had previously held a portion of the land - about four acres as a prospecting area, taking this up at 10am on October 3. He had met Daniells on two occasions prior to that date. At the invitation of Williams, he had washed a few sample dishes from the claim on the land in question. Williams later asked him to work half his ( Williams' ) share, but witness learnt that Williams actually had no share, but that it was in his wife's name. On hearing that Williams, Gunn, and another man had left for Wollongong, witness visited the lease for three or four days, and when he was satisfied that no work was being done he made application for the lease. His notice was erected on the lease, but the previous holders had raised no protest, nor had they made any claim. Titley denied that the claim had been handed over to him by Daniells, who was not a mate of his, although he had accepted an invitation to stay at Daniell's hut. Saone declared the inquiry concluded, and returned a finding as set out above. I hate people who use big words just to make themselves look perspicacious

14 Community First Responders C.F.R. / S.E.S. These blokes and women do an absolutely fantastic and critical job in responding to medical emergencies in this area and dedicate a lot of their personal time in an effort to help and protect members of this, and other, communities. C.F.R. Members are also member of the S.E.S., and are further trained in advanced First Aid techniques by the NSW Ambulance Service and could be called upon to provide advanced first aid at roadside collisions and other emergencies in areas where there is no immediate State ambulance service available or close by. C.F.R. Members also have a positive working relationship with local Police, Ambulance and other emergency services. In order to keep this vital C.F.R. Active in this community, further volunteers are urgently required. If you are interested in this line of activity - please contact Kevin Muffet on who will be more than glad to explain the processes to you. Regards from Kevin Muffet Team Leader Windellama S.E.S.& C.F.R. Windellama CFR are in desperate need of new members for their Community First Responders. These new members would preferably be in their 30 s - 40 s but not necessarily. Without such Units in our Communities, Emergency situations would be severely delayed and the CFR members are usually the first ones called to an emergency because of their Senior First Aid Training. Join the winning team & become a CFR member. We of the SES are very fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in various courses as the one just undertaken by members of the Windellama Unit. The task was to go to the NSW Fire Service training facility at Ingleburn and become qualified in the pursuit of Urban Search and Rescue. We, in doing so, had the pleasure of being given a guided tour of that facility, which is something to experience. The general public does not appreciate the training and dedication that these people have to go through to keep the Urban people safe. The NSW Fire Service also responds, at a moment s call, to events that do occur overseas. Our call out rate has also been rather heavy over the last month. This makes me really wonder why more people do not come and join our Unit to lighten the load on us few oldies. People want the service which we provide, but yet are reluctant to help us. We have been told that as retirees we have time on our hands to do this sort of thing. Let me assure you that this is not the case as we are very busy trying to do our own thing, whilst helping those in need. Therefore it is my opinion that it is high time that some of you younger people set your mind to doing a service to your community. Spread over a bigger number it means a lot less work for everybody. Putting it plainly folks, if you want this service to keep going, you had best stand up and be counted. We do have members that have jobs, but they are prepared to give us as much help as possible, nights and on days off. These are real community minded people. Remember folks there is no I in team. This applies to all activities where team work is involved. None of you are aware of the opportunities that are open to you as an SES member. They are many, some very interesting, from the air wing to mundane activities on the ground. Come along to one of our meetings, the 2nd and 3rd Monday of each month from 6.30pm at Windellama Hall SES Unit, where you can gain some insight in to what we are really all about. We now have a new Commissioner and there are some new and exciting changes coming up, all for the better, it would seem. Kevin Muffet Deputy Controller Windellama SES NEW BUS RUN IN OUR AREA Next RUN DATES ARE see Calendar on p21 Due to increasing demand, Valmar Community Transport will now be operating a fortnightly Bungonia, Bungonia Heights, Windellama, Tarago Bus Run on the Second & Fourth Thursdays of the month.
