NEWS DESK Crossing confirmed A NEW pedestrian crossing will be built near Patterson Lakes Retirement Village. Victorian Roads and Road Safety Minister Luke Donnellan and Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny announced on Friday (3 November) that a new crossing will make crossing McLeod Rd safer for retirement village residents and visitors. VicRoads data showed more than 60 people cross McLeod Road at near the retirement village every day. “Many elderly people, enjoying the retirement village, cross the road here and access the bus services and they will be able to do so in a safer environment thanks to this project,” Ms Kilkenny said. “I thank the local residents for their advocacy in helping bring about this important safety initiative.” Retirement village residents had raised concerns about the existing crossing between Snapper Point Drive and Schooner Bay Rd that features a pedestrian “refuge island” in the middle of McLeod Rd. The new crossing will cost about $400,000 to build. Pedestrian operated traffic lights will be built to stop traffic when walkers are crossing the road.

Santa Paws is coming to town CHRISTMAS is just around the corner and pet owners can be photographed with ‘Santa Paws’ and four-legged members of their own family at Petbarn Mentone at 27/29 Nepean Highway on Saturday 18 November and Sunday 19 November, 10am-4pm. Proceeds will be donated to RSPCA Victoria to help ongoing operations to prevent cruelty to animals. RSPCA Victoria CEO Dr Liz Walker said Santa Paws had been a family tradition among pet owners for more than a decade.
“We’ve seen all sorts of families over the years, made up of adults, children and furry, feathered and scaled creatures,” Dr Walker said. “All creatures are welcome, as long as the animals will be comfortable in the setting.” National Petbarn foundation manager Sam Morton said the organisation was delighted to be offering pet owners an opportunity to celebrate the silly season with a fun photograph while raising funds for RSPCA Victoria. “It’s great to grow our adoption
partnership with RSPCA Victoria in this way,” Ms Morton said. A range of Santa Paws photography packages are available for purchase, with more than half of the funds raised going to RSPCA Victoria’s animal welfare work. See rspcavic.org/events/santa-paws or call Petbarn Mentone on 9908 5181 to book a photo session. Photos, taken by a professional photographer, can be printed and collected on the day of photoshoot.
