A big thank you to all the thousands of wonderful volunteers who helped with the clean up over the weekend in Tennyson ward. A huge amount was accomplished thanks to your hard work, spirit and generosity.
That spirit continued today in the ward, with volunteers working to help on the clean up and providing food and respite. A big thank you to the Redcliffe contingent, led by Maree Dahlstedt, who feed 300 people and spent many hours cleaning houses today. Your help today was magnificent - thank you.

Energex work in Corinda

Submitted by webmaster on Sun, 16/01/2011 - 7:37pm

We understand (unconfirmed) that Energex is busy diverting circuits around Corinda in order to allow power to be delivered to floor affected homes near Deniven Street.
The plan is to provide a dual powerpoint independent of the normal house supply to each house near the existing power board.
Hopefully similar solutions will be deployed elsewhere to minimise the lack of power and assist recovery efforts.
