Dear friends near and far,
We are now into day 15 of the fire. The fire is contained and the services are now into the ‘extinguishment phase’ still aided by the helicopter water drops and multiple fire teams.
As the days pass the island feels increasingly safe. The multi- agency strategy, focusing on people, buildings and ecology, is making significant in-roads and already plans are underway to protect the National Nature Reserve and the island from the devastation of future fires. We are thankful for the services provided unfailingly from all the agencies, local and distant, and especially to Doncaster Council for providing such very human support.
