Light up my life

Ok, so we didn’t have to travel further than the local school for this one. But I still thought I’d like to share it. We are members of our local Rural Fire Brigade. Well, I’m the secretary, so I don’t put the gear on and point hoses at flames, but managed a few photos at the training day and controlled burn held today.

A local mine donated the cost of solar panels for our shed and these generate more than enough to cover our annual expenses. Although many items are provided by the government we do still have to pay for some equipment and fuel. So the sun is providing us with an income, but there’s a fair chance your local brigade is struggling to raise money. Do consider supporting them. If you live in a rural or semi-rural area you never know when you might need them.
