TIP TOP: Wangaratta’s Norm Minns Oval was looking in perfect condition in readiness for the round one Marsh Community Series match this Sunday. Pictured are council’s Jaime Chubb, CFA’s Colin Brown and Victoria Police’s Luke Kirton.

THOUSANDS of people attending Sunday’s Richmond versus Collingwood match at Wangaratta will help celebrate the efforts of volunteer firefighters as they do a lap of honour before the game.

It will follow the spirit of the Bushfire Relief Match on Friday night, a perfect excuse to buy a ticket to watch two of the AFL’s powerhouse clubs go head to head in their first Marsh Community Series match for 2020.

Some 300 CFA volunteers doing a lap of appreciation around the Norm Minns oval 30 minutes before the 4.10pm scheduled start time for the game, and there will be prizes on offer as well.
