Red Balloon Week to say thanks| Photos

WIMMERA residents will see red as people show their appreciation for the region’s emergency services.

The Wimmera will participate in Red Balloon Week, in which people are encouraged to fly red balloons from fences, letterboxes, businesses or trees, or tie red ribbons to their car aerials in a show of support for emergency volunteers and workers. 

A flyer released on the Grampians Community Fire Support Facebook page encourages people to participate between Saturday and Friday next week.
