The storm season has started

The storm season has officially started, the NSW Government and NSW State Emergency Service (SES) have announced.

During our return walk from the Byron Lighthouse on Monday morning, my wife Inga had a bad fall owing to the partially maintained paved walkway. Around 20 fellow walkers stopped and offered help and assistance, which was very comforting.

Especially a guest lady from Port Macquarie was extremely helpful comforting my wife. So was the lifeguard who rushed up from Wategos to help. Both helped my wife walking down to The Pass where the ambulance arrived in time to transport her to Byron Hospital’s emergency ward.

Here she received, from the extremely caring nursing staff, professional care and treatment to her badly injured face. Inga and I would like to thank all involved for comforting and helping us. What a great community we are living in.
