Flashback Friday | 1980

Reaping had begun on the Eyre Peninsula in November 1980, with much smaller 'trucks' lining up for silos across the region.

CFS brigades prepared for fire season while local school students marked the beginning of the end of the year.

Art and craft were on display with exhibitions of art and needlework.

Communities across the region marked the season with events including strawberry fetes, while couples took advantage of the warmer weather to get married.
