Around the region Sad news for Service Steaming to Kiama Cessnock Suppor t Group’s love of trains continued recently when they took an historic ‘Motor Rail’ to the South Coast town of Kiama. Despite heavy rain and cancellation of the local markets the group still enjoyed their day out with morning tea and lunch and fundraising activities which netted over $1500 for the Service. Many thanks go to the Motor Rail Society for their support and care of passengers on the trip. Scone Horse Week The newly formed Scone Volunteer Support Group was well represented in the Horse Week parade in Kelly Street Scone in May. Long-term supporter Gordon Martin loaned the group one of his very first trucks from his fleet. It is with great sadness that the Service recognize and respect the untimely death of Ivor Durham on February 4th in a tragic helicopter accident at Cessnock Airport which also took the life of another young pilot. Ivor flew as a casual pilot for the Service in Newcastle from 2000 to 2007 and was universally liked and admired for his quiet professional manner, his sense of humour and his love of flying. Despite several attempts to lure him to a full-time position with the Ser vice Ivor chose to pursue his own flying school and charter business which has grown to become one of the premier operations in the state. Ivor was known throughout the helicopter industry in Australia as one of the most decent and honest blokes you could ever encounter. His loss is keenly felt by all who knew him. Ivor is sur vived by his wife and two young children. Page 16 Westpac Rescue Helicopter Ser vice - Rescue Spring 2011
