Kandos and Rylstone news

On the weekend many aircraft flew to Rylstone for a “Fly In”. The pilots and passengers fly to Rylstone and pitch a tent under their wing and camp the night. Many aircraft were older styles, such as, Austers, Tiger Moths, a Boeing Steerman and a very rare British Eagle. 

Bush Fire Season: Bob Chrismas, Community Liaison Officer said, “The fire season is upon us. It has sneaked up on us a month early, due to the lack of rain and the high volume of fire fuel around. We all need to ensure we are well prepared. The potential for a bad fire season, this year, is very real. The Rylstone Brigade in conjunction with the Clandulla Brigade are conducting information days, in Kandos and Rylstone, next Saturday, September 16. Rylstone will be between the butchers and the Saffron Kitchen Café, and in Kandos, Clandulla Brigade will be outside the IGA store.

The brigades have been provided with aerial maps of the two towns to enable people to see their own property and note fire risks. The information days will run from 9am-12noon. There will also be a free sausage sizzle at both venues. It is hoped we can explain the simple steps a service we offer at your specific request is to visit your home or property and offer advice in the preparation of places. For those wishing to take up the offer, give your name, address and phone number to our volunteers on the day. We will then contact you and arrange a convenient time for us to visit. This like all Rural Fire Services, is free. Please do not be complacent. Come along and have a talk with us. Five minutes spent may save you untold stress.”

Markets: It was a quiet day at the Rylstone markets last Saturday, despite the warm weather. The olive oil and wine tasting stall were popular, as well as the fresh fruit and vegetables.

Men’s Shed Helps Community: At Kandos Rylstone Men’s Shed, found Fred Hoy finishing a balustrade for the Bridge View Inn’s stairs. The original balustrade broke and the Rylstone Historical Society, found repair quotes were very expensive. Proud Men’s Shed members told of the Jolly Joker board they had just finished and presented to the Kandos Returned Services and Community Club. The club needed a Jolly Joker board and approached the Men’s Shed who happily obliged.
