Bush Fire Update for the swimmers
Lloyd and Ruth lost their home when the bush fires swept through on Tuesday. Ben and Roger kindly looked after them on Wednesday evening and fellow swimmer Mike and his dear wife Elizabeth Gaffney have offered their holiday home for some short term accommodation. Lloyd was so thankful and graciously accepted.
Garry Jenner and Jayne lost their shed and fowl yard including their fowls. I’ve heard that Garry was able to put out a number of small fires that had apparently started on their home and save it whereby their neighbour lost their home completely.
Swimmers have been inquiring into the welfare of Wendy and Craig Jenner at Lake Conjola. From reliable sources I am advised that they are presently ok, however everyone in that area are bracing themselves for Saturday’s predicted heat-wave.
Inquiries have also been coming in for Ray and Janie Ackerman. Ray was down swimming this morning and all is good at the moment. Others were inquiring into the welfare of Losal Lekshe who lives in a caravan down in Myrtle Gully north of Milton. Losal is OK and currently on the Central Coast for his birthday with his parents. He hasn’t been able to contact the owner of the property where his caravan is.
Later update is in BLUE below.
Just heard that the owner of the property where Losal’s caravan is, lost his life in Tuesday’s horrific fires.
Graeme and Suzanne have accommodation available for any swimmer in need.
