Well done fire services for quick tree clearance

2016-01-07 06:00

AT about 9.30am on Thursday 23 December, 2015 we turned into Bendigo Road and saw a fire
engine stopping at a large fallen tree which had completely blocked the road.

It was close enough for us to turn right into Kloof Road, coming out into Bendigo Road just above the tree.

When we got to the Cabins we immediately went to see our guests to let them know about this and they told us that the road had been clear when they returned from the beach less than an hour earlier.

We stayed there for about 25
minutes and were amazed to see that the tree had been neatly cut and stacked and the fire engine was due to leave.

Congratulations to all concerned for a very quick response to this.
