Working with Snakes and a Platypus!

Welcome to summer in Perisher, where just another day in the office can quickly turn into an ‘experience of a life time’. For the Skitube team at Bullocks Flat their experience of a lifetime involves backfilling a trench, a snake and a platypus!

The maintenance team were working on an open pit at the Skitube and arrived on site early morning to find a (very) unwelcome slithering visitor enjoying their fresh pit. Gary Clarke, the resident snake wrangler, was called to remove a copperhead snake. Gary, like the local hero that he is, arrived and calmly asked the boys (who were all keeping their distance) if they wanted the platypus removed as well… With platypus being extremely shy creatures encountering one first hand in the wild is very rare – making this an unexpected, but not unwelcome ‘experience of a lifetime!’ with some great photos taken by the team showing Charlie Webb with the rescued animal.

While trying to remove the natives the snake took off up one of the pipes, which then spooked the platypus who then took off up the other pipe… Luckily for Gary and the boys the snake eventually backed out of the pipe, was (safely) captured and returned to the wild! Snake free, the excited team of staff were able to flush out the platypus, get a couple of pics (for the memory books) and move it to a new, safer home!

It’s not every day that you get to work somewhere that offers such an array of natural challenges and experiences - well done guys!

 CSS - Coffin-Siris Syndrome - Fundraising Event 29 March 2019

David Kelly who works at Smiggins Workshop and his beautiful wife Nat have been through countless hospital visits, medical appointments and procedures and are still uncertain of what the future may hold for their son Declan. Declan is 8 years old and was diagnosed with CSS in September 2018. Since his son’s diagnoses, David and Nat have done everything they can to understand the disorder and have reached out to other families in the same situation. 

Dave continues his campaign to fundraise not only for his son and family but for other families struggling as well. A conference is scheduled to be held in Jindabyne later this year so that families can share experiences, compare notes, medications, therapies and debrief each other. The leading geneticist in this field from the USA has been invited to the conference, and at this stage is seriously considering making the journey over.

A fundraising event will take place on 29 March 2019 at Rydges Horizons in Jindabyne, where (for $99 per person) there will be canapes followed by a sit-down meal, dessert and a two-hour beverage package. Guests will be entertained with live music by Corroboree Frog and Scott Harris, as well as auctions, raffles and prizes. Tickets are still available – have you got yours? For tickets visit the link below and search for Uniting CSS Families.
