Some of our volunteer “firies” have been in Comboyne fighting the blaze there. With  over 300 houses on the North Shore and only 3 vehicles, will we have enough volunteers in the event of an ember attack or a fire breaking out in the National Park? Consider volunteering in some way to keep our homes safe. Do you have a Fire Plan?

Vale Gordon Dick

It is with much sadness that we’ve heard of the death  yesterday of Gordon Dick of Maria River Rd after some weeks of illness. Gordon’s  family has been a part of the Hastings’s history for many generations and he’s been an advocate for the North Shore, a friend and benefactor. We will miss him greatly and extend our condolences to the Dick families.
