VADM Ray Griggs, AM CSC, RAN, Chief of Navy opened a new recreation area at HMAS Waterhen (CMDR Jason Sears) during his first base visit as CN on 13 July. 

The new recreation space was funded by a $20,000 grant from the Royal Australian Navy Central Canteens Fund (RANCCF), as part of an annual profit distribution made possible by the Win with Navy raffle.

The recreation space is adjacent to the Administration building at Waterhen and will be a valuable resource for all Waterhen personnel. They will be able to use it for a range of activities such as al fresco dining, divisional meetings or just to catch up for a chat over coffee.

Mr. Jak Goudman, from Win with Navy said that the Navy raffle is very successful and is supported by more than 40 percent of Navy members. 
"Since the raffle's inception nearly two years ago, there have been 45 fortnightly raffle winners and over $150,000 in profit has been handed out to various Navy projects, events, goods and services in HMA Ships and Establishments," he said.

Commanding Officer, HMAS Stirling, Captain Brett Dowsing crosses the finish line during theWalk to Work Day 2010 Mid Caption HMAS Stirling took part in the annual Walk to WorkDay for the fourth year in a row on Friday 01 October 2010. Walk to Work Day is an event held all around Australia promoting regular exercise and a cleaner environment. Navy members from HMAS Stirling, as well as APS personnel, long term contractors and their families walked from the end of the Garden Island causeway low level bridge and finished at the Sports Pavilion at HMAS Stirling.

The turn out for the event was around 1000 people from the Rockingham Navy community. In addition to the Walk to Work Day, the annual Causeway Classic running race took place over the same course. This was a timed event over the 6.5km course and prizes were awarded for the winners and place getters in each category. HMAS Stirling extended the activity of Walk to Work Day, to include a Family Fun Day, which coincided with school holidays, to allow Navy members to share the experience of walking to work with their families.

Wi-Fi internet is now up and running onboard HMAS Penguin thanks to the Royal Australian Navy Central Canteens Fund (RANCCF) and the fortnightly ‘Win with Navy’ raffle.

The Wi-Fi network is targeted primarily at the accommodation areas at Penguin but may still be possible to pick up the signal in other parts of the base.
Acting CO Penguin CMDR Hugh Cameron said he was grateful to the service offered by the RANCCF.

“This is a tremendous service that has come about after much hard work by those onboard and also by the Royal Australian Navy Central Canteens Fund who run and administer the Win with Navy raffle,” CMDR Cameron said.

Penguin successfully applied for $20,000 worth of grants in 2010 from RANCCF with $12,000 going to upgrade base amenities and provisions in the Hunter Bay Tavern (Junior Sailor’s Club).

A large part of the leftover money was then used to provide the Wi-Fi service.

CMDR Cameron said the service was provided to Navy personnel at this stage but depending on how trial progresses there may be an opportunity to expand coverage to service groups and personnel onboard.

Other amenities supported by RANCCF included support to the new Penguin Pit Stop Canteen and ongoing support to whole-of-ship activities such as the Gate-2-Gate fun run and golf days.

CMDR Cameron encouraged all sailors to participate in the ‘Win with Navy’ raffle and support organisations that supported personnel and the wider Navy family.

“Over the last 18 months Penguin has benefited greatly from many RANCCF and ‘Win with Navy’ initiatives.  ”Further information on the RANCCF and ‘Win with Navy’ is available at www.winwithnavy.com.au and www.ranccf.com.
