Vale Sandy Brock

Yesterday, one of our dearest community members, Sandy Brock, passed away surrounded by family.

He was well known by many in the community with his involvement in the Arthurs Creek Landcare group, Doreen CFA and Whittlesea Diamond Valley Group.

He will be sorely missed.  Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.

New Pagers

We are getting new pagers, in theory before the start of the fire season.  This is what they look like.   Yes, a bit "back to the future" - they look like the old Orange pagers.
