Last night the Stoneville Volunteer Bushfire Brigade donated $500 to complete the purchase of a mulcher for use by the Jane Brook Catchment Group.

Jenny Johnson from the Group attended the Brigade general meeting to accept the cheque that was presented by our Treasurer Barry Guzder.

The mulcher will be used to remove woody weeds from Reserves in the Stoneville, Parkerville and Mount Helena areas to reduce the fire hazard in these Reserves. Each of these Brigades also donated to the purchase.

We look forward to working witht he Catchment Group in reducing the fire hazards in our area and making the ares “Bushfire Ready”.
