Hunters Hill residents have combined their community spirit and skill with a needle and thread to help bushfire-affected wildlife.

Volunteers with skills in sewing, knitting and crocheting attended a Bushfire Working Bee at Hunters Hill Town Hall today (Friday March 6, 2020).

Hunter’s Hill Council invited the community to the workshop to make pouches and bird nests to aid the recovery of wildlife injured in the recent bushfires.

Sewn, knitted and crocheted items will be collected by WIRES.

Knitter Robyn Parker said she got involved because she enjoyed doing something worthwhile.

“I love to help and volunteer,” she said.

Kate Botting, who is also involved with Bushcare, said it was a great demonstration of community spirit.

Pamela Alvarez worked a sewing machine.

She addressed the Council at its meeting on February 24 regarding a motion to assist in koala habitat recovery.

The Council resolved to write to offer its support to organisations involved in the recovery efforts of the koala population following the devastating bushfire season.

It will also investigate where appropriate vegetation from Hunters Hill may be of use to shelters who need to feed koalas who are being treated and investigate adopting koalas from shelters that are currently caring for wounded animals.
