This week in the Tarrangower Times


Folkie ready to go - but it needs you!

Friday 28 to Monday 31 October: it’s just four weeks till the 2016 Maldon Folk Festival kicks off. 

The Times talked with Festival Committee Treasurer Greg Ginger this week, and was somewhat underwhelmed to learn that among local residents only twenty-four (yes, 24) people with a 3463 postcode have actually purchased a ticket. This post code area covers Baringhup, Baringhup West, Bradford, Eastville, Laanecoorie, Maldon, Neereman, Nuggetty, Perkins Reef, Porcupine Flat, Shelbourne, Tarrengower, Walmer and Woodstock West.  

CFA Open Day - All Welcome

It is cool and wet now, but fast forward a few weeks and it will be hot and dry. Yes, the bushfire season is just around the corner.

It’s time to prepare for summer.

As part of its Open Day on Sunday 2 October Maldon CFA is sponsoring a community Fire Ready meeting to help you prepare for what the experts are predicting will be a busy fire season. Heavy rains have promoted lush growth in grasslands and bush so you need to get busy around your property now.

The Fire Ready meeting at 10.30am (don’t be late … daylight saving starts on Sunday) will give you the latest, up to date, news on what you should be planning for and doing to protect your property should we suffer a fire this summer.

Research is constantly showing new and better ways of dealing with bushfire and the Fire Ready presenter will cover all the latest developments. The meeting will run for no more than 60 minutes and participants will receive copies of the latest advice from CFA.
