Barbecues to help storm-affected farmers

SOUTH Burnett Regional Council has teamed up with the Burnett Inland Economic Development Organisation to run two recovery barbecues in communities affected by the Boxing Day storms.

The first will be held this Sunday, February 25, in Kumbia at the memorial hall from 3pm.

The idea behind the barbecues is to connect affected farmers with organisations that can help in the aftermath of the disaster.

They will talk about issues of land care and rehabilitation, along with financial and mental health counselling services.

Importantly, it gives people a chance to relax, catch up and chat about what's bothering them.

All are welcome and the food is free.

A second barbecue will be held in Mondure on March 4.
