The Coopernook Rural Fire Brigade were recently paged to a grass fire three kilometres south of Johns River - southbound of the Pacific Highway.
Unfortunately, they were given the wrong location to start off with, but they were asked to continue to find it.
Very soon after travelling north up the Pacific Highway they arrived on scene with Moorland and extinguished the fire which was started by a faulty truck passing by.
Please remember when reporting incidents to give accurate locations, cross streets and landmarks if possible.
By doing this it will ensure the emergency service who is attending your call will find their way to the incident.
Robert Collins, Coopernook senior deputy captain, was deployed to the Queensland fires and flew up on Sunday, December 2 along with other fire fighters from the Mid Coast district. He was flying back yesterday (Thursday).
Upper Lansdowne Hall
Go along to the Upper Lansdowne Hall Thursday evening, January 3, 2019 and enjoy The Northern Folk, a collective of 10 talented musicians from Melbourne, who deliver a unique blend of folk/pop/rock.
Combining two powerful vocalists, a roaring, four-piece brass section, bashful bass and addictive percussion, their big, diverse sound is continuing to earn them a following wherever they travel. Their concerts move between foot stomping groves, wild sax solos and pristine harmonies. You will hear slow soulful numbers and rocky, brass decorated dance music and enjoy an entrancing show.
They will be coming to Upper Lansdowne fresh from playing to several thousand at the Woodford Festival.
Tasty food, tea and coffee will be available, but feel free to BYO drinks and nibbles. The show commences at 7pm. Phone Rita on 5591 6017 for further information and bookings.
The Lansdowne School end of year presentation day ceremony will be held at the Lansdowne Hall on Thursday, December 13.
