As a Kinglake resident, I thought that you may like to know about a visit by Australia's richest man, Andrew Forrest, to the burnt out areas of Kinglake and Kinglake West on Monday 9 March.

The meeting was held in the community tent next to the Uniting Church in Kinglake West, with a representative of the army and Andrew Forrest -- the idea being that Andrew would give advice to residents on how to move forward after a major disaster and how to ask for help in re-building the community. Over 150 residents and police turned up.
