“Don’t stop looking when you’re cooking” was the take home message when Station Officer Jim Walsh visited the Belconnen Energetic Seniors on a Tuesday (BEST) Club and the Positive Links group this month. Visiting BCS as part of ACT Fire & Rescue’s community outreach service, Jim shared important tips for home fire safety and talked about ACT Fire and Rescue’s latest community safety campaign. The two groups had a great time chatting with Jim and having their questions and concerns answered.
If you have questions or concerns about fire safety in your home, you can contact your local fire station for advice, or visit the ACT Fire & Rescue website for more information about home fire safety.
The BEST Club is a weekly social group for seniors, held on Tuesday mornings at the West Belconnen Raiders Leagues Club. Positive Links is a social group for people of all ages who have survived a stroke or other physical life changing experience, meeting weekly on Fridays at Belconnen Community Centre. Both groups provide a program of guest speakers, activities, games, outings and exercise. Highlights from February include a seated exercise class, a session on how to find information online, one of our regular Bingo sessions, and, of course, the fantastic visit from ACT Fire & Rescue. Visit the BEST Club or Positive Links pages for more information about these friendly groups.
