Last month, I wrote about the Peter Allen Festival in Tenterfield, which was held during the weekend on which the major fires in that district had started. Unfortunately it has continued to be a dire situation in the Northern New England.
We have finally had a decent rainfall event so most fires are now well and truly under control. This month I have news of two events that are supporting the residents of our area who have been impacted by drought, as well as raising funds for the organisations that are giving practical aid.
Why not attend both of these events and make a weekend of it? This is a practical and enjoyable way to demonstrate your support for our communities.
