INAUGURAL DR JOHN BIRRELL AWARD
 

The Rotary Club of Warrnambool East Inc. presented the inaugural Dr John Birrell award to recipient Senior Constable Jo Wastell of Warrnambool Highway Patrol.

Nominations for the award were given for South West (WD2) members of the Police Force who display excellence in all aspects of Road Policing.

The recipient received a prize of $2000 to be donated to a registered charity of her choice that is aligned with Road Safety. Senior Constable Jo Wastell elected to... donate the $2000 award to Warrnambool SES as a thank you to all the work they do in assisting us with our work at collisions.

The award was named in honour of Dr John Birrell OAM, a former police surgeon for 20 years was a tireless campaigner for road safety and was instrumental in introducing Breath testing of drivers and compulsory wearing of seat belts.

Please join us in congratulating Senior Constable Jo Wastell on this outstanding achievement.

Another Great Event

It might have taken 30 years, but pay day has come in a big way for Warrnambool golfer Steve Timms.
Clinton Baulch sales manager Brad Caine and hole-in-one winner Steve Timms of Warrnambool, with his brand new Kia Picanto.
 
The sweet swing of a pitching wedge was enough to win Mr Timms first prize in the Rotary Club of Warrnambool East hole-in-one competition.
 
That prize was a new $15,000 Kia Picanto, with much of the cost of the car covered by the Clinton Baulch Motor Group. 
 
Mr Timms, who plays off a handicap of 12, has aced the hole twice in the past month and on Australia Day got to within one metre and 78 centimetres. This was the closest of all the 54 finalists, which were made up those who had landed holes-in-one and closest to the pins each day since the competition began on Boxing Day.
“I hit a couple of good ones so I thought one might be around the mark,” Mr Timms said.
 
In other categories, Harry Purcell won the juniors, Warrnambool Bus Lines the corporate and Sue Shimmin the women’s division.
