Macclesfield Disaster Resliency Task Groups

In late 2022, during a series of workshops facilitated by the Red Cross in conjunction with the Mount Barker Council and the Macclesfield Community Association task groups were formed by volunteers from the town to address identified issues in order to make Macclesfield better able to prepare for, respond to and recover from a disaster.
