With this amount of enthusiasm and continued effort by local volunteers, an annual spray program before the weed flowers, will be sufficient to keep both town sites and bush areas from being overrun with bridal creeper. A small amount of chemical, some equipment supplied by the Shire, along with a few volunteers for the next few years will save our Shire from the Bridal Creeper curse.
Acknowledgements to Bob Bray, who initiated the idea and Catherine Watkins who was very keen to support and helped to rally farmers in Kukerin. A small celebration to thank volunteers has been held at the Dumbleyung District Club and Kukerin Hotel.
