We’ve reached the end of another open burning season, and hopefully everyone has been successful in getting their hazard reduction burns completed.

The restricted burning season has now started and will continue through to 30 November.  The dates may change so check local papers and the Shire webpage to ensure you are burning within the rules.

Permits can be sought from the Stoneville Station between 9am and 11am each Saturday throughout the restricted period.

Now is the time to sort out your bushfire action plan, and prepare your property for the summer season.  Don’t leave it too late!

Best of luck.  Ian Z – Captain.
