Amamoor site flood-ravaged

EVEN the good times become hard work when natural disaster strikes, as Gympie Apex Club members have discovered after taking a look at the flood-ravaged Gympie Muster site.

And next Saturday is when we can make a practical contribution to helping the Muster keep on track.

Club president Scott Swift says the recent floods caused "significant damage" to Muster site infrastructure, as swift and deep water swept through the site, running up to 3m over the Main Stage.

Damaged infrastructure included "fencing on site, cladding on Main Stage, road material, walkways, culverts and the newly constructed (and now totally destroyed) Windmill Bar".

"There is a lot of work to be done," he said, in an appeal for the people of the region to dig a little deeper as part of volunteering and helping out are concerned.

"We need your help to recover from this devastating flood event," Mr Swift said.

Anyone who can help is asked to contact Meeki Crotty at the Muster office on 5482 2099.
