Public help in arrest MEMBERS of the public held onto the car keys of a man considered too drunk to drive in White St, Parkdale, 5.45pm, Thursday 2 February. When Mordialloc police arrived at the scene at the corner of Nepean Hwy the unconscious man, 32, was lying on the footpath. His car was in the left lane in White St with its hazard lights on blocking traffic. Police spoke to the Parkdale man and confirmed their view that he was drunk. An ambulance arrived and the man told the officer that he was drunk. Police said he became increasingly loud and aggressive and, when they moved in, he allegedly swore and wanted to fight police. When told he was under arrest the man allegedly swung a punch, which missed, and was then handcuffed. The man refused a breath test and was taken back to the station where he was lodged for drunk and disorderly. The man will be charged on summons with being drunk in a public place, resisting police and refusing a breath test.

DO you know the history of where you live in Chelsea? Where was Hoadley’s Hall? Which local church was built in a day? And what was made in the old gut factory? A new community walk in memory of Chelsea historian Margaret Jacobs with all the answers will be held for the first time early next month. Margaret Jacobs, a keen historian and Chelsea and District Historical Society volunteer, passed away in June last year at the age of 87 after a long illness. The historical society is inviting people to walk in the footsteps of history throughout Chelsea in the inaugural Margaret’s Walk community memorial walk, a guided tour written by Mrs Jacobs. The 3km walk around Chelsea, organised by the historical society with the help of scout and cub groups and the Uniting Church Chelsea Parish, will point out sites and landmarks of historical significance.

The Chelsea walk will take participants from Mt Chelsea play slide at Bicentennial Park, round the residential streets to the church in Sherwood Ave for a pit stop, and then back to the park via the sports ground. Participants can join a guided group, organise a group, or walk on their own. A map and notes of what to see will be handed out on the night. Margaret’s Walk will begin at Bicentennial Park on Friday 3 March, meet 6.15pm for 6.30pm start and finish back at Mt Chelsea play slide 8-8.30pm. All are welcome to the free event. There will be a midway refreshments break at St Andrew’s Uniting Church, Sherwood Avenue. Parking and barbecues available at Bicentennial Park. Contact Rev Claire Dawe on 0410 827 597 for more information.
