It was a pleasure to assist the Corangamite Shire and local community groups, as they reflected on what worked well in their recovery efforts after the St Patrick’s Day fires in 2018.  The group had focussed discussions about what worked well, what lessons were learned, and what they would like to do differently in the event an another event in the future.  These communities demonstrated wisdom, respect and resilience as they talked together about their experiences and what they have learned.
