Farewell To An Old Friend

Dave Moyle Print PDF

alt

For the past five years a feature of many of Goldfields FM’s outside broadcasts has been the O.B. caravan. But sadly our broadcast of the 2013 Energy Breakthrough was the final farewell to it.

The van was donated by a former presenter at the station and had to be renovated before it could be used for our O.B’s.

The work was carried out mainly by Bruce Leech and Lachlan Hickey. This included having the floor, which was totally rotted out replaced and being repainted.

The van was home to the past five broadcasts of the Energy Breakthrough and the Relay For Life, as well as for many one off outside broadcasts, such as our coverage of when passenger train services returned to Maryborough.

However due to deterioration in the van, it was decided that it had become too unsafe for presenters to work in it. So last year’s Energy Breakthrough was it’s last stand.

With the retirement of our first O.B. van, a grant for the purchase of a new one has been granted to Goldfields FM.  We are in the process of finding the right one to allow us to continue with the high standard of outside broadcasts that the station has achieved over the past five years,

Though we are currently without an outside broadcast van, it has not stopped the station from continuing to bring our listeners quality O.B.’s.

On New Years Day, we broadcast six hours live from the Highland Gathering at Princes Park. The coverage included the running of the Maryborough Gift and the massed bands.

So while we farewell what has been a large part of Goldfields FM for the past half a decade, we look forward to having a better facility to bring our listening audience a wide range of outside broadcasts in the near future.

DEPI Planned Burns

Josh Soupe Print PDF

If you're driving through Central Victoria this Easter long weekend, you may see or smell smoke from planned burns, and some roads may be closed.

Fire agencies will be carrying out planned burns on public land under carefully managed conditions depending on the weather. It’s part of a plan to reduce bushfire risk to communities, property and the environment.

Some burns in the region this weekend are in the following towns:

• Bealiba Complex: 57 hectare fuel reduction burn, within the Bealiba township.

• Tarnagulla Complex: 32 hectare fuel reduction burn, within the Tarnagulla township.

• Redbank – Camp House Track: 298 hectare fuel reduction burn, 1 kilometre south west of Redbank.

• Moonambel – Tablelands Track Extension: 202 hectare fuel reduction burn, 1.6 kilometres north of Moonambel.

• Avoca – North Glenpatrick Track: 1227 hectare fuel reduction burn, 10 kilometres south west of Avoca.

• Avoca – Ebling Track: continuation of the 290 hectare fuel reduction burn, 9 kilometres west of Avoca.

• Avoca – Emery Track: continuation of 446 hectare fuel reduction burn, 2 kilometres north east of Glenpatrick.
