Mornington Community Safelink
Mornington Community Safelink 
Our guest speaker on Wednesday July 3 was Graeme Rocke from the Mornington Community Safelink Group. The MCS will link the old Moorooduc and old Mornington Railway stations with a path adjacent to the railway line. The Safelink has had the support of the responsible authorities and agencies since Peninsula Link was built,  but the path was not funded. The Pen Link trail terminates at Moorooduc Railway Station. The benefit of the Safelink for Mornington is the linking of the several shopping centres, schools, sporting precincts, residential and industrial areas for walkers, joggers and people with mobility aids. It will provide active transport and recreation for all sectors of the community, but especially children and families.  The group is currently compiling letters of support from the community, meeting with local politicians, and preparing a petition. Graeme was accompanied to our meeting by Group member Cheryl Coombs, who leads local womens' cycling groups.
You can keep up to date with their progress on advocating for the completion of the Safelink on facebook.

Thanks to the members agreeing at our meeting last week to round up the $310 raised at Ride Like a Girl, by $690 to $1000, that will be our Contribution to World Polio Day on October 24. Our budget still provides for another larger contribution later in the year, subject to the recommendation of our International and Foundation Committee.
Great Goldfields Getaway Weekend  
Ten of us enjoyed our Goldfields weekend, starting with lunch on the shores of Lake Wendouree, and a wander through Ballaarat’s Botanical Gardens, followed by sumptuous drinks and savouries in Eileen and Ian’s room before dinner. On Sunday some enjoyed the Ballaarat Gallery, the Creswick Woollen Mills.   and others ventured to the Convent Gallery in Daylesford before a delicious lunch at the Radio Springs Hotel.
