Inglewood What Gorse that remains in the bush on the southern edge of Inglewood Fire Trail should easily be cleared up with one more session. An impressive volume was cut down at our latest event and all up it has been a splendid effort of 15 sessions over 7 years for the 500 metre long strip of land. […]
