Heathcote Junction . Carla Hendersons Block .
Carla lost her house during the fire , she is on her own and needed help to get started with the cleaning up . 43 ANZ volunteers pulled out burnt fencing and removed weeds and unwanted regrowth from her house site and burnt it on a bonfire.
It was so windy on this ridge top that I had to bring a tent to keep the BBQ out of the wind . Catering for this many volunteers in the field is challenging but Chris & Janet have it down to a fine art by now !
