In­ter­est­ing guest speak­ers at Probus

Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE -

THE guest speaker at our most re­cent meet­ing was Ian Barn­den from the lo­cal fire ser­vice.

Mr Barn­den spoke of the many ways to put out a kitchen fire and one thing not to do was carry the burn­ing saucepan out­side, be­cause drips of melt­ing liq­uid could cre­ate more spot fires.

An­other in­ter­est­ing point was that in the next 10 years, all bed­rooms will need a smoke alarm, which must be in­ter­con­nected.

New­comer to the dis­trict, Keith Jones gave an in­ter­est­ing in­sight to his many moves around the coun­try and over­seas dur­ing his ca­reer in the navy and as a house painter.

Thanks for re­tir­ing in Stan­thorpe.

There are a few va­can­cies on our bus trip to the Toowoomba gar­dens on Tues­day, Septem­ber 19.
