Our Annual Wakeling Automotive Christmas Party
What another huge week it's been! The weekend saw our annual Wakeling staff party held, with well over 300 of our staff and their families attending. As usual it was great to get together, chat, play some games and have a special visit by the jolly man in red. We were blessed with the weather giving us some reprieve from the tumultuous days that went before.
Like many Macarthur residents, several of our staff were affected with bushfire threats and evacuations. Harrison and I got to experience firsthand just how devastating the fire can be and just how brave our rural fire service men and women are. Water bombers, helicopters, trucks and tankers were non stop in action in the western parts, it was a sight to see. The best sights however were the residents of Macarthur coming together to defend, fight with and support each other, donations, prayers and courage flowed. Thank you to all who helped, let's hope this week, conditions get better and we can get on preparing for a tamer Christmas period.
