Bringing Sport, Schools, Homes Together
Residents, sporting groups and school children are now enjoying new pathways on Besgrove Street and Hinton Street in Rosebud.
Mornington Peninsula Shire Seawinds Ward Councillors have welcomed the works in Rosebud.
Cr Celi said that the pathways represent part of the ongoing implementation of the Shire’s Footpath Construction Strategy.
“The new pathways consist of exposed aggregate concrete and provide better access to the Olympic Reserve sporting precinct and the local schools Our Lady of Fatima, Eastbourne Primary and Rosebud Secondary,” said Cr Celi.
The works form part of a network of path connectivity improvements including the recently completed Boneo Road path between the Fire Station and Rosebud industrial estate.
“Council thanks local residents, sporting groups, students and parents for their understanding and patience while these works were underway, and hopes the paths get well-used as an important local pedestrian network,” said Cr Gibb.
Cr Gibb added that the paths are also being currently constructed in Keogh Street and South Road and are expected to be completed by June.

A Helping Hand
EXTENDING Hearts and Hands of Hope to women in the Victorian prison system and their families is the best way to describe the Prison Network Ministries.
Laurel Gore (Snr Support Worker) of Prison Network Ministries (PNM), a Christian charity organisation that helps people of all religions who find themselves in jail, addressed our branch members on the work carried out by her organisation at the branch's first meeting of the year. The organisation has been in operation for 67 years (Victoria only), has a staff of 6 workers and 40 volunteers.
Over 300 women are incarcerated at the Dame Phyllis Frost Centre which is the maximum security prison in Deer Park and approximately 70 women are imprisoned at Tarrengower (Low Security) near Maldon. 80 percent of approximately 500 women who spend a term in prison each year involve crimes linked to drugs, with 7 out of 10 being mothers.

The next meeting will be held at Frankston Police Headquarters on April 1st. 7.30pm - all welcome. Further details from branch secretary Fay Hunter on 5976 1258.
