Summary Farmers from around Trundle are turning up in droves at the local pub. And it's not just to share a yarn over a middy or two. The Committee has arranged a fund raiser with the local male farmers posing for a calendar shoot.For the Guerke family, the tree change hasn't been the easiest of rides. They spent months renovating their second home only to be told by the landlord they'd have to move out. With no work and little money to put food on the table, the Guerkes have made the tough choice to send one of their children to live with Kylie's mum over 800kms away.Meanwhile at the Gallen household it's all go. Jo and Andrew are getting hitched but there's just one problem... it's flooding and the bride and groom might be cut off from getting to their own wedding.Tony and Claire Moore are making the most out of country living. However, unable to get enough work nursing, Tony has had to resort to his previous career as a geologist and has landed a job at a nearby mine.Twelve months ago, widowed mother Donna Roberts set out with her kids, Tommy and Sammy for a new life. As Christmas Day approaches, so too does the second anniversary of husband Steve's death.The Trundle Tree Change was always going to be a social experiment. 12 months on there's a real sense of optimism in the air. It's now time for the Committee to reflect on what's been quite a year for their small town. Has the scheme been a success and just how many families now consider Trundle home?
