Warwick's candlelit tribute to anti-CSG farmer

WARWICK will pause to remember anti-coal-seam gas Chinchilla farmer George Bender in a candlelit ceremony in Leslie Park tonight.

The respected farmer took his own life after a decade long battle against CSG.

Locals are being encouraged to bring a candle and meet at the band rotunda at 5.30pm to pause and reflect.
