Overwhelming support from community for defence force and police personnelBy Yarrawonga Chronicle
The support given to Australian Police and Defence Force personnel at the Mulwala border checkpoint by the Yarrawonga Mulwala community has been described as overwhelming.
“They’re fantastic people. The world needs more of them,” Sergeant Brad Taylor from Sydney told the Yarrawonga Chronicle last Friday.
“They’ve kindly given us cakes, biscuits, firewood - it’s been overwhelming support.”
Despite some concerns with the new border permit, it has been a smooth transition into NSW according to Sergeant Taylor.
“The traffic has moved well. We’ve appreciated everything, especially the firewood because it does get cold!” he said.
