Wither Hills Farm Park - track closures due to fire danger

The hot dry summer has forced the closure of most tracks in the Wither Hills Farm Park, including the Mountain Bike Park.

Due to the ‘very high to extreme’ fire risk conditions within the Farm Park, walkers and runners are asked to stay on the lower tracks around the town boundary only, and not to venture up the gullies or ridge paths.

Cyclists are asked to avoid the Mountain Bike Park as this area would be particularly dangerous in the event of a fire.

Stick to the lower tracks to avoid risk to yourself and to fire fighters.

Signs advising of the track closures have been installed at the Farm Park. The closure of these areas will apply at all times of the day.

International Fire Fighters Day Date Posted: Apr 17, 2019

 

International Firefighters’ Day (4 May 2019) is an important day for us to acknowledge and celebrate the great work our people do to ensure our local communities are safe.  The day is about firefighters and the crucial job they do. It’s a great opportunity to showcase their work and the valuable service we provide to our Communities.

The Chief Executive and Chairman of the Board are keen to build on the success and positive media coverage received last year which acknowledged and commended the incredible work of firefighters across the country.   

Rhys Jones, Chief Executive has welcomed the idea that Brigades/Stations consider arranging on the same day some sort of Brigade/Station Open Day (or couple of hours) to use this opportunity to engage with the community. He has approved $100 to any brigade who might want to fire up the BBQ and put on a few sausages during the day.  We encourage all VRFF’s to engage with your local Community to celebrate all the wonderful work the volunteers do.
