We are just a couple of weeks from embracing spring however it truly feels like spring has sprung already, at least here on the Gold Coast!  I think we would all welcome some rain clouds during August to set us up for what looks like a warm spring into summer ahead.  You will more than likely have noticed a bit of smoke in the air, our city officers have been working closely with the  Queensland Fire and Emergency Service undertaking hazard reduction burns in the hinter...
