Weekend warriors do battle

MEMORIES from the 2010/2011 floods resurfaced when a team of "weekend warriors" got together last weekend to help clean up after the Australia Day weekend flood.

As the clean-up process continues around the region, community volunteers helped householders in East Warwick clean grass and debris from their paddock fences.

The work was essential as fences can become permanently damaged if the debris is not cleared away.

The householders appreciated the assistance provided.

Volunteers are still needed to help with various flood clean-up jobs as they come up.

If you would like to assist or require further information, phone volunteer co-ordinator Bette Bonney on 0459 098 612.
