Yes they sure do!
During the downpour on Thursday afternoon in Bedfordview, a tree fell over into Talisman Avenue, making it difficult for cars to pass.
But in a demonstration of the effectiveness of the street WhatsApp groups – the resident quickly responded and there were many hands to assist in cutting and clearing the tree from the road.
Within 30 minutes of the tree falling, it was neatly cleared and cars could pass again, with no need to call council for assistance.
