Blue September

Posted Thursday, 30 July 2015, 9.00am

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 this will provide the town of Oatlands with some positive publicity as the Go Pink event did in October 2014.

Lake Dulverton Conservation Area - Domestic Birds

Posted Monday, 13 July 2015, 5.00pm

Ratepayers are requested to not release domestic geese, ducks or chooks (recently some roosters) to live around Lake Dulverton.  The domestic ducks and geese heavily pollute the water, and the ducks have been known to breed with the wild ducks. There have been a number of domestic birds released in the area over the last few months.  It can mean that these animals find the sourcing of food difficult because it is something that they have not learnt.  They then rely on the public to feed them to survive and often go hungry.
