Wye Sep Recovery Group

April 2016

The Wye Sep Recovery Group (WSRG) was formed in early January 2016 with representatives from the major service groups and charity experience with an independent co-ordinator to efficiently and fairly allocate donations from the Spirit Foundation, the Lions Club, Red Cross & other charities.

The  Recovery group’s role was to best meet community needs and projects in the recovery phase of the Christmas 2015 Bush fire in the Wye River and Separation Creek Communities.

On it’s final meeting 9 April 2016, it was decided to close the WSRG as the role of the group has largely been duplicated by the Community Resilience Committee.  It is proposed that members of the WSRG who still want to be involved in certain projects will continue their invaluable volunteer role as a sub-committee to the Progress Association so that these important community initiatives can be completed.
