Stories, poem and photos of the Shire of Mundaring bushfire.

A COMMUNITY memoir of the Parkerville, Stoneville, Mt Helena bushfire is now available.

Together Towards Recovery – A community Memoir was launched at the Shire of Mundaring on September 4.

Shire President Helen Dullard said the memoir included a collection of stories, poems and pictures from the devastating fire.

“The original concept for the book was a story of the fire; however, following discussion with members of the community and shire employees, the project became an anthology,” she said.

The community was invited to participate by sharing stories, photos or poems.

Those who contributed to the memoir gathered to officially launch the book.

The project was funded by Lotterywest and copies are available for free from the shire administration centre and both libraries.

Cr Dullard said community recovery from the fire was ongoing, and the Shire was seeking community input for a community art project.
