State Governor flies into Stroud

Excerpt courtesy of the Dungog Chronicle;

His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), Governor of New South Wales and Mrs Hurley flew into Stroud on Saturday morning to see first-hand the devastation caused by the April storm.

Accompanying them was retired Brigadier Darren Naumann who has been appointed to the role of regional recovery coordinator for the Hunter and Central Coast floods.

Stroud Showground and neighbouring houses either side of Mill creek bore the brunt of the storm with a wall of water pushing its way down the normally placid Mill Creek and Mill Brook.
