Bushfire memories prompt move to help

Bushfire memories prompt move to help

Shire President David Dow said the council would help in any way it could with the mass clean-up in the area.

‘CEO Stan Scott contacted the Shire of Mundaring to find out what we could do,’ Mr Dow said.

‘They have been overwhelmed with goods, so we anticipate we will give them assistance in the clean-up, using our shire’s resources.’

The Toodyay community was left in shock after a bushfire destroyed 38 homes and burnt through more than 3000 hectares in December, 2009.

‘We appreciated all the assistance we got after our bushfire so we will do whatever we can to help,’ he said.

There will be a council forum meeting next week to discuss how the community can help.

Toodyay’s Community Resource Centre, in conjunction with the shire, had earlier organised a donation point where residents could bring in goods for those affected by the fire.

People brought in toys, linen, towels, toothbrushes and other goods, which were sent to the Salvation Army in Midvale on Thursday.
