We spent the afternoon on a mini tour of Darebin visiting the suburbs of Alphington, Fairfield, Northcote, Thornbury, Preston and Reservoir in the inner North East Melbourne. In each suburb residents joined us outside town halls, train stations, shopping strips and primary schools to show their support for renewables, with over 100 residents in total coming out to support the campaign.
