The Brunswick Volunteer Rescue Association held a sign-up day at Byron Bay Bunnings on Saturday and were surprised at one of the local residents who turned up to lend a hand. Dirtgirl looked keen to join the squad after having a go with the battery operated cutters.  But BVRA’s Philip Walsh said despite her superhero status there still is room for more volunteers. For more information ring Chris Foster on 0427668418 or email [email protected].
