Stroud SES Visits Gilligan’s Island at Myall Shores

The SES with the Gang from Myall Shores AKA Gilligan’s Island.


WITH the community of Myall Shores cut off by the flood waters the SES swung into gear to deliver urgently needed supplies.

A crew from Gloucester SES were joined by a volunteer from Bulahdelah SES to deliver assistance to the community which is just a few clicks up the road and in need.

That’s what the SES does, they go where they are needed and they help everyone that calls.

Crossing the flooded waters the out of town SES team were greeted by a sight that they really weren’t expecting!

With the crew sorted they set out to perform a resupply to Myall Shores Resort at Bombah Point.

Even with everything that was going on and the uncertainty people who are cut off by flood waters are facing, the team at Myall Shores wanted to raise the spirits of the SES team.

A representative from the SES told News Of The Area, “The staff were so grateful they greeted us dressed as the characters of Gilligan’s Island when we arrived in our boats.”

The SES have been incredibly busy across the state and the wider east coast for the last nine days performing flood rescues, tarping roofs, clearing storm damage and filling sandbags.

“It was certainly a wonderful sight.

“It’s what we train for, it’s rewarding to see people’s faces when we can help,” they said.

The SES is an entirely volunteer based organisation that is made up of men and women that give their time and at times put their lives on the line for the lives of others.

It is in times of disaster we often see the very worst that nature can offer up, but the very best given to others sometimes by people they will never get to know or thank.
