After the fire comes the rain

October 25, 2017

In July 2015, Woorinen in Victoria was hit hard when their sporting clubrooms were destroyed by fire. Sport is such a pivotal part of social cohesiveness in regional communities and especially in Woorinen, where a day out watching the kids have a hit, catching up with friends and volunteering at the canteen is a weekly fixture for many families.

President of the Woorinen Cricket Club, Dean Morpeth, spoke with Kendi Burness-Cowan about the importance of sport in this thriving community and how locals banded together to rebuild both their clubrooms and their club.
