Here in South Murwillumbah, we keep doing what we are doing, moving forward step by step in our recovery. The unprecedented flood event left the worst of us homeless, some of us reeling in shock, and those unaffected in the wider Murwillumbah community rallying support …

Spring has sprung!

Spring has sprung!

      Ok. Here goes. I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’ve had this blog sitting here since February. I have let it sit unattended for this long because I think I’m afraid of failure.
