Graham Cheshire, Paulette Richardson, Bernie Deacon & Tracey Cheshire represented Broke Hill Golf Club at Majorie McClure’s first ever Get To Know You Games. The event saw the school’s prominent supporters get together to celebrate the good work the school does. We were joined by Toyota & Teachsport on the day. The students organised all of the events expertly and showed a real pride and determination, making the day a huge success.
We wanted to share a few images of the day – and hope you’ll all continue to support the fantastic charity in the way you already do.

Ambulance Service: Display your house number clearly
The Welsh Ambulance Service is appealing for people to display their house name or number prominently to help save lives.
It says in Wales there are still many properties that don’t have door numbers or names, which could mean that time is wasted by blue light services searching for the property in an emergency.
The Trust is urging householders to help reduce response times by ensuring that their properties are clearly and prominently identified and that there is nothing obstructing them.
We need to get to 999 calls as quickly as possible. Sometimes if a house does not have its name or number clearly displayed there is a delay in us reaching the patient. “It's vital that all properties display their name or number clearly and that it is visible from the road.
Our control rooms have digital mapping systems to find addresses but in a life threatening emergency it's a good idea to send somebody outside to flag the ambulance or response car down. In these cases sometimes seconds save lives.
Traditional methods, practised since the late 19th Century, are used to create each and every one of our signs.

Before I give you the list of the 50 most popular street names, please find the time to look at the funniest street name I have come across in the past year (above). I was lucky enough to have a friend who took a picture of it for me. “Fanny Hands Lane”… It made me laugh
Anyway, here are the UK’s 50 most popular street names.
A well-marked home address makes it easier for package and food deliveries. However, such visible home addresses can be absolutely critical in an emergency.
Yankton deputy fire chief Larry Nickles said this fact was highlighted during a recent incident in the Riverside Acres area.
“I went to a burn complaint and when I got to where I was going, I was three houses off and the first half of the block, the signs had either been removed or not marked in the street,” Nickles said. “There, the houses are far enough back that you can’t see the numbers (on the houses) so the streets have been marked and, for whatever reason, the signs had been removed. Had that been an emergency, that would’ve been a big time delay by the time we figured out we were at the wrong place.”
In another case, Nickles said GPS could only help so much.
“Sometimes they’re missing a whole street sign,” he said. “That happened not too long ago in a trailer court and our GPS told us to turn on such-and-such a street, but the sign was gone so you weren’t sure if you were on the right street.”
Nickles said there are a number of guidelines to follow when it comes to the address signage.
“The numbers need to be contrasting,” he said. “In other words, white-on-white isn’t going to work, they just need to be a color on white — for example. The stroke, or the width, of the (numbers) needs to be at least a half-inch and four inches high so they’re visible from the street.”
He added it also helps to keep the area in front of the numbering clear of any shrubbery or other plants to make sure they’re visible from the streets.
Numbering can be found at area hardware stores. Nickles also advises against using lettering to spell out addresses on the front of a house.
