Tuross Valley thanks Blaze Aid volunteers
Teams of Blaze Aid volunteers have been working hard for months throughout the Tuross Valley assisting farmers and landholders to replace hundreds of kilometres of fencing that was lost in the New Years Eve firestorm.
Cathy Bingham told The Beagle "As if that assistance was not enough, Mary the Moruya Blaze Aid camp coordinator, recently contacted us offering to provide all fencing materials and a team for a community project. As a result the Community Shed in Nerrigundah is now fully fenced."

Cathy said "On behalf of the Tuross Valley Community we thank all the Blaze Aid volunteers from the bottom of our hearts. Fencing is hard work and conditions in the valley have been far from easy. You have achieved in a short time what would have taken us years to do on our own, not to mention how much you have saved us financially.
"We will never forget you."
