Umbrellas and gumboots were discarded as spring sunshine and blue skies made a welcome return to coincide with school holidays. Local parks quickly filled on Thursday as Warragul experienced its warmest day for September - 23.4 degrees. While the weekend produced a little rain and cooler temperatures, the spring sunshine was warming hearts again yesterday on the first day of October. Among those enjoying the spring sunshine in Burke Street Park are (from left) fiveyear-old Tyler Beale, 11-yearold Bella Walsh, eight-yearold Brody Walsh, 10-year-old Hayley Beale and nine-yearold Caitlyn Beale. The five children all attend Darnum Primary School.
