Defibrillators (DFIB’s) in our Shire
True or False - Do you need to be trained to use a Defibrillator (DFIB)? No. When you turn on and use a DFIB there are prompts which instruct you how to use it correctly. No training necessary!
There are a number of DFIB’s across the Shire, though you can currently find them at the Dumbleyung Swimming Pool (which in winter is located at the Dumbleyung Lakeview Golf Course), Dumbleyung Roadhouse and Dumbleyung Ag Supplies. In Kukerin you can find a DFIB at the Kukerin General Store.
Watch this space as additional DFIB’s will soon be purchased and placed across the Shire. For useful first aid information download the ‘St John First Responder App’ which includes first aid instruction guides, triple zero (000) calling with automatic GPS location, registered DFIB locator plus so much more.

Dumbleyung Toy Library
Toy Library concept is viewed as an important community service which needs a simpler administration process to keep it relevant and attractive for people to continue to utilise it.
The Executive committee discussed a number of options of how the Toy Library could operate once unincorporated:
Option 1: Dumbleyung Toy Library structure to remain the same but as an Unincorporated organisation. Continue to have a membership group with office bearers (President, Secretary/Treasurer), operating with the same bank account and toys to be located over two premises (Dumbleyung and Kukerin). Office bearing positions could alternate between each community or be combined.
Option 2: Dumbleyung Toy Library structure to operate under the guise of another organisation. Assets (toys and bank account) to be split across each community and gifted to an organisation that suits each community’s ability to continue to loan toys (ie. To the Dumbleyung and Kukerin Playgroups). The Toy Library Bank Account to be closed and any remaining funds after all/any debts are paid to be evenly split and gifted to the preferred organisations.
Option 3: The Dumbleyung Toy Library to dissolve completely. All assets to be gifted to a preferred organisation, charity or sold. The Toy Library Bank Account to be closed and any remaining funds after all/any debts are paid to be evenly split and gifted to a preferred organisation or charity.
The Executive determined the following resolutions:
- That the Dumbleyung Toy Library to voluntarily cancel its incorporation.
- That the Dumbleyung Toy Library members support the notion of Option 2: Dumbleyung Toy Library structure to operate under the guise of another organisation to ensure the continuation of this service to the Kukerin and Dumbleyung communities.
