We are only a small group of around 20 volunteers and have just lost a couple of the team. Ideally we would like our Patrollers to do one patrol per month but some have volunteered to do more than one during June. Our aim is to have 3 patrols each week - 2 nights and 1 daytime.

If you are interested in learning more about us or would like to volunteer, please contact us.

We would also love to hear from any businesses that could help out with some funds to assist with our vehicle running costs. Each month it costs about a $150 to run our vehicle so we are always on the lookout for more $$.
