As of Saturday 14th March, the survivors of Marysville were allowed back into their once beautiful township, to sift through what remains from ‘Black Saturday’.
Even though overwhelmed with a number of the community unaccounted for, this community is so united and ready to rebuild their lives and town already a new Chamber of Commerce has formed and keen to act.
Strong ties between Marysville and the Northern Beaches have developed they appreciate the tremendous generosity of the Northern Beaches local business community, Inspiring Women and community at large and want to keep us up to date. The supplies donated have been warehoused in a ‘co-op’ set up so the people can help themselves to what they need.
Thanks to one Inspiring Woman, Lynda Dyer for donating 100’s of copies of her book “Good Grief” has been well received and read in helping this grief stricken community. We also acknowledge the Grief Counselling body of Sydney providing counselling to the children.
To Genevieve Collette (another Inspiring Woman) thank you! She has donated her time in volunteering her culinary skills in feeding the multitudes. If anyone has a couple of weeks to spare and wants to assist in teaming up with Genevieve , take your tent or caravan and call her on 0401 212 303.
