BAR­BARA Baker said there was no way she could drive past acres of trees pushed over dur­ing the 2013 flood­wa­ters at Cer­a­to­dus and not be af­fected.

“Some­times I even burst out in tears; you can just see so vividly what the peo­ple there must have been through,” she said.

Al­though Mrs Baker was af­fected her­self by the 2013 floods, she said the hard­est or­deal was hear­ing the more trau­ma­tis­ing tales from her fel­low Gin Gin res­i­dents.

“I can feel so much for what th­ese peo­ple went through,” she said.

“But I def­i­nitely think the best thing peo­ple can do to help each other is to lis­ten to each other, and just be there.”

She said be­ing a part of the Cal­ico’s Girls Night In at Monto last week­end, where ladies came to­gether for a week­end of arts and crafts, was an ex­cel­lent way to re­con­nect with her friends.
