What do our communities need as we continue the long road to recovery following the devastating floods of February and March?

This question will be front and centre at a public meeting in Woodburn this Sunday (August 7).

Organised by the Northern Rivers Flood Action Group, the meeting is open to everyone affected by the floods, regardless of which town or area they come from.

The event will take place at the Woodburn Memorial Hall, commencing at 4pm, and will be followed by tea, coffee and cakes etc.

Attendees are asked to make a gold coin donation as part of the supper component of the meeting, and are welcome to bring cake or biscuits to place on the table.

Any left over food will be donated to the Woodburn Hub.

‘Our aim is simple: to help get people back into their homes, help farmers and other businesses to come back as strong as ever,’ the organisers of the meeting said.

‘We may be a collective of small towns and communities, but we have big hearts and we will come back.’
