Woodburn SES BBQ

Many from the village in Woodburn turned out at the local pub to thank the SES for their work during the recent storms.

On the night of the storm last month the SES clocked up 58 calls before they could even get into their shed which itself had been damaged by the super storm cell.

Woodburn controller Jim McCormack said normally a three minute drive from his home to the SES headquarters took over 35 minutes due to the need to clear debris from the road.

For those who lost roofs and had houses damaged the barbeque was a small way to thank the volunteer group for their hard work over the three days following the storm.
