Northern NSW : Autumn 2011
There are a few new faces floating around the Service’s Hunter and Tamworth Offices. After six-and-a -half-years with the Ser vice, Special Events Coordinator Kylie Eakin bid farewell to the Ser vice in January to take up a new position with Ronald McDonald House, based in Tamworth. Responsible most notably for the Ser vice’s Annual Charity Ball in Newcastle and the Wests Cycle Classic, Kylie had become well known in the community as an enthusiastic and driven team member. She worked closely with many of the volunteers and community fundraisers and will be greatly missed. Following Kylie’s departure Justine Rochow has been appointed as the new Hunter Special Events Coordinator. Justine was born and bred in the Hunter Valley and most recently worked as the project coordinator for TESA Mining, one of the Hunter Service’s Logo Sponsors. She has worked in the events industry in both Australia and the UK on a range of projects including a road show of CEO Briefings through regional England and a variety of events for SIDS and Kids in the Hunter Region. Justine is engaged to be married in October. In the New England Nor th West Stuart O’Mally, Sean Maher and David Lamb have joined the operations team. Stuart began work in November as the line pilot, replacing Andrew Jones, and Sean Maher was appointed the new Air Crewman, replacing Brian Foster, who transferred to the Newcastle Base. The New England North West Ser vice also recruited the services of a casual pilot, David Lamb, who will be brought in to help cover shifts as required. Prior to his appointment with the Ser vice, Stuar t was the owner operator of a helicopter company involved in mineral exploration and the servicing of remote locations throughout Papua New Guinea. Sean, a Tamworth local, was a former Directorate of Sailor’s Careers in the Royal Australian Navy and is a qualified aeronautical maintenance engineer.
