ASH WEDNESDAY, CUDLEE CREEK, S.A., AUSTRALIA

Following the Ash Wednesday fires the victims did not get the support that has been provided following more recent fires.
However we were lucky that we had friends who came, with their equipment, to lend a helping hand.
We were extremely grateful for this support, and it is something that we will never forget!
It was many, many years before we could drive through the area, or hear a fire siren, without feeling the anguish that we had experienced.
