Fancy being a Permablitz documentor?
If you enjoy taking photos and can string together a sentence or two, we'd love to hear from you!
We try to document every blitz for posterity and so that you can all can check out the action here on our website.
Once a blitz is announced, we put a call out to our handy documentors to see who can head along and record the day by snapping some photos and writing up a couple of paragraphs on what went down.

The last blitz of Summer heralded the first chill of Autumn – and occasional breaks due to showers! This day down in the South-Eastern suburbs saw a grassy, run-down and neglected alley...
