Our Backyard – Aireys Inlet

We made it. Another year gone, another year begun.
As we enjoy this run of fine weather our thoughts turn to all those affected by bushfires burning across Victoria and New South Wales. Premier Daniel Andrews has declared a State of Disaster as Victoria’s bushfire crisis worsened. Lives have been lost and many, many homes as well.
My brother and his family were directly affected when they spent a night huddled recently in the Bermagui Bowling Club after being evacuated from where they were staying after spending Christmas in Melbourne. They eventually made the trip back to Sydney but described how eerie it was to be in darkness at 11am!
The Aireys Inlet CFA will be selling raffle tickets out the front of the Aireys Inlet General Store on Saturday morning and I urge anyone who is down to donate to these heroes of our community, and remember that they are volunteers as well.
Stay safe and all the best for 2020.
