We Need You

Posted Monday, 29 June 2015, 11.00am

The Rural Primary Health Service in the Southern Midlands is endeavouring to rally the town of Oatlands into GOING BLUE for the whole month of September to show support for those men affected by cancer.

We are hoping that you would be happy to show your support for this project by decorating your home, business or even your car with anything blue.

The Blue September Organisation is keen to support the event and will be contacting media and plan to send the town an Ambassador such as Mark Holden in the month of September!  We will be approaching local media and hope that this will provide the town of  Oatlands with some positive publicity, as the Go Pink event did in October 2014.

The Southern Midlands Council is keen to support this event and will attempt to make the streetscape blue where possible. There will be events held throughout the month to support Blue September including a Free Father’s Day BBQ at the Oatlands Recreation Ground, High Street on 6th September 2015. (11am – 2pm).

So come on Oatlands get behind this and show others that we can rally together as a community to support those men affected by cancer.

Please do not hesitate to contact Corina McCarthy on 0419 326 327 if you would like further information or email me on

The Australian and Tasmanian Governments have committed to invest $500 million to improve safety on the Midland Highway over the next 10 years.  Using the AusRAP methodology (which is the national road safety audit approach initiated by combined national motoring associations, including RACT), he objective of the investment is to lift the safety standard of this strategic highway to a minimum 3 star AusRAP safety rating over its entire length.  For most of the Midland Highway, the predominant crash type is loss of control, most of which are single vehicle crashes with some resulting in head-on crashes and fatalities. 60% of the fatalities on the highway have been due to head-on crashes.
