Karen Anderson and her husband Gordon are the publicans at the small historic old timber town at Willawarrin, in the Macleay Valley near Kempsey. Karen is regarded as the ‘mother’ of the community. She is on a mission to have the battered Willawarrin RFS’s only firetruck replaced. She described the truck as a “death trap” and local firefighters as “sacrificial lambs”.
