State Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead thanked all the business that have assisted over the last few months in the aftermath of the devastating fires.

“It’s time like these that our community spirit really shows through, this really makes me proud to be the parliamentary member representing such a tight knit community, that has never had a second thought of helping each other,” Mr Bromhead said.

One such example of this is Earl’s Turf in Taree who has recently donated 500 square metres of new turf to the value of $6000 to the Tuncurry RFS Brigade. The Tuncurry unit has recently increased its members by 20 Volunteers post these fires.

It’s businesses like this helping those in their time of need that has made a difference during these hard times.
