From the Chirurgeon


Please note, the below is from 2015.  Stay tuned for updates for 2016 Rowany Festival to come soon!

Greetings unto the Populace of Lochac,

I am currently compiling a list of volunteer Chirurgeons / First-Aiders, who are going to festival, hold a current Senior First Aid certificate or higher to please contact me at if they are able to assist or do a shift in the Chirurgeonate.

The festival Chirurgeonate will be operating as normal as it has done in previous years with St John Ambulance manning the Chirurgeonate point during daylight hours from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm and the Chirurgeons taking over at dusk from 5.00 pm to 8.00 am on call. The location of the duty Chirurgeon on call will be placed on a white board situated outside the Chirurgeonate point and will be contactable by two way radio should you require first-aid assistance after hours. The populace is reminded that if they have a medical condition they should consider notifying the Chirurgeonate on arrival and filling in a confidential medical information form. Please remember that we are first aiders, so any major medical conditions should be addressed prior to coming to festival. Parents with small children are reminded that there is a river running through the property so a close eye should be maintained on the littlies at all times. Parents are also reminded that footwear should be worn by children at all times when moving around the site. Other items that the populace should have in their possession at festival are: Medicare card – private health insurance and ambulance cover if you have it – any medications that they are on – medi-alert bracelet or pendant – a small first-aid kit, hat and sunscreen.

Also, if any group or households are willing to help feed four (4) St John Ambulance members attending Rowany Festival this year it would be greatly appreciated. These members volunteer their own time, and as a simple courtesy to repay their generosity the Chirurgeonate is canvasing for donations of a meal covering Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. If you are able to help out here please let me know ASAP, thanking you.

Yours in Service
