The Coffs Coast Advocate - - YOUR SAY -

ON OC­TO­BER 7, my neigh­bour’s house caught fire. I would like to thank firstly, the two young men on mo­tor­bikes who stopped to help me.

While one di­alled 000 and I banged on win­dows call­ing out, the other, still in his hel­met and gear, trained the gar­den hose on the flames un­til emer­gency ser­vices ar­rived.

In the fol­low­ing bed­lam they qui­etly slipped away. Who­ever you are, my neigh­bour and I owe you a huge thank you and our grat­i­tude.

Sec­ondly, huge thanks to our fireys and po­lice for their im­me­di­ate re­sponse, calm con­trol of the sit­u­a­tion and re­as­sur­ing man­ner.

As a com­mu­nity we tend not to give a great deal of thought to their ex­is­tence but I would like them to know that as a com­mu­nity we greatly ap­pre­ci­ate the work they do, ac­knowl­edge their jobs aren’t “easy” but we would be lost with­out you. Lo­raine Huggett
