Wooroloo community reconnects after the haze

In the spirit of reconnecting and supporting the community, Wooroloo and Hills residents are invited to a free event on Saturday 27 February.

Presented by the Wooroloo community and supported by Shire of Mundaring, A Night Out of the Haze is open to all residents, local businesses and firefighters affected by the recent bushfire.

Wooroloo residents and event organisers Vanessa Van Der Swaagh and Sarah Mencshelyi said the community led event was a way for residents to reconnect and rebuild within their town and across neighbouring areas.

"We have created what we hope will be an inclusive event that provides practical help to those in need and to do it in a way where there was something for everyone.

"We have worked collaboratively with local businesses, the Shire of Mundaring, community and emergency services groups, local schools, and many other people to ensure our community is supported through every aspect of the devastating fires."

Shire President, John Daw, said the event would offer residents the opportunity to come together in a social setting to unwind, reconnect as a community and link up with recovery support services.

"We understand how difficult it has been for our community over the past few weeks. By bringing the community together with their neighbours and friends in a supportive environment, it begins the healing process.

"Our residents are resilient and we are here to support them on their road to recovery. We will recover together."

Bushfire recovery support agencies will be on hand to offer information and assistance.

Food and beverages will be provided, but guests are welcome to bring their own picnic. There will also be kids' entertainment

Local environmental specialist, Simon Cherriman will run a bird box making activity and screening videos about revegetating and planting to encourage the return of wildlife.

The event will run from 4pm onwards at Wooroloo Primary School, Wade Street, Wooroloo.
