Last Wednesday the Huon News met with the Governor General His Excellency the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove, who visited Geeveston to chat to those affected by the Riveaux Road fire. As the head of the Cyclone Larry recovery taskforce, he offers his encouragement and advice on how best to achieve good recovery outcomes.
We also have the details of Tasmania's latest literary festival, Terror Australis Festival, scheduled to take place here in the Huon Valley in November this year, and the fundraising events that are taking place next week to subsidise the planned free events.
We also feature Castle Forbes Bay singer/songwriter Tiffany Eckhardt's bushfire story, and you can find a recording of the song she wrote, accompanied by many of the Huon News' bushfire photos, here on our website.
There are details of more recovery grants available for small and medium sized businesses in the Valley and the Huon Valley Council community information sessions are coming up - dates and details are in this week's Huon News.
The Huon News is available all around the Huon Valley and beyond and by subscription online.
