Second anniversary events


The extreme storm event on 9 and 10 June 2021 had a devastating effect on many Yarra Ranges residents and communities.

The impacts continue to be felt by people who experienced damage to their homes, gardens, communities, environment, and wellbeing.

While some people do not wish to dwell on the date of the 2nd anniversary of the storm event, others have expressed the need to gather, reflect on shared experiences, and/or thank people who helped. 

After consultation with community groups, Yarra Ranges Council offered small grants to enable community-led gatherings to support community wellbeing at this difficult time.





Drop by for a chat, hot soup, a cuppa and peaceful music.
