LAST weekend, a group of 21 of us stayed at the Harrietville Caravan Park.
Some of us arrived on the Wednesday and most left on Sunday.
Apart from one other person we spoke to, I believe we were the only people staying at the park.
We spent money at the two hotels and at several other places in the town and had a wonderful few days.
All the businesses in town are losing money because of cancellation of bookings and a lack of passing trade.
There has been a lot of misinformation in the press about the Harrietville fire and road closures and no information being given in the press by the tourism authorities to help get people back into these towns.
The towns like Harrietville need your support.
