Oaklands has been enjoying a reasonable harvest but the heavy rain we experience earlier in the year is having an effect on the yield and also making it difficult to contain the vegetation which fires find so attractive. On Tuesday we had a very big fire which travelled around the town and caused the school to evacuate. We were joined in our furious action to stem the fire and its damage by fire crews from all around the region and the water planes from Sydney.
If you go to the above site you will see some of the damage done and our gratitude to those people who risk their lives for us in fighting fires whether domestic or bush can never be properly expressed. Thankyou.
