Daylesford Incident


Dear all,

It’s hard to put into words how sad and tragic last night’s incident was. Our thoughts are with all of you, and our deepest condolences to those affected.

Of course we’d like to offer a huge thanks those who have helped, particularly the first responders, some of whom are community members and friends.  Thanks also to the emergency services personnel, as well as Hepburn Shire Council who have been terrific.
