Since March 2020 life as we know it has changed forever due to the infectious, deadly coronavirus COVID-19

Darwin is currently fighting to prevent the spread of this disease with almost every aspect of normal life affected.

As governments everywhere restrict everything from international travel to any local activities which allow the virus to spread,  only essential and necessary activities are permitted.

9 year old twins

by Maureen Barratt
(Humpty Doo)

I was teaching in Budgewoi NSW 1975 and 9 year old twins were sent to stay with their grandmother while their house was rebuilt and services restored to Darwin, as their house was destroyed in Cyclone Tracey.
One's name was Ashley, I can't remember the other. If they still live in Darwin, I'd love to catch up. I now live in Humpty Doo. Maureen Barratt (Miss Blackford)
