An independent voice for the community We are the only locally owned and operated community newspaper on the Mornington Peninsula. We are dedicated to the belief that a strong community newspaper is essential to a strong community. We exist to serve residents, community groups and businesses and ask for their support in return.

Confusing signs: Just a couple of years ago, steel posts identical to these holding up dog signs at Mt Martha Beach North supported “leash-free” signs. Mornington Peninsula Shire has not explained why those signs were taken down or whether they had been placed (and replaced several times) in error. A sign at the top of the track leading to the access stairs, right, indicates there a times when dogs are not allowed on the short strip of beach visited 41 times by shire rangers over summer.





You’re invited to a fun evening of fashion as we tackle the war on waste whilst assisting women in need on the Mornington Peninsula. THE EVENT Smart Business Solutions together with Clothes 4U Boutique, a not-for-profit organisation providing quality clothing, accessories and toiletries to women in need on the Mornington Peninsula, bring you the brilliant concept of swapping your quality pre-loved clothing with other participants.

HOW IT WORKS Take inspo from de-cluttering legend Marie Kondo and bring along your good quality women’s clothing, accessories, shoes and handbags that no longer spark JOY and exchange them for items that ignite the JOY spark! Don’t have anything to bring? That’s ok too! There will also be an opportunity to purchase fabulous items at very reasonable prices.

event details 27th July 2018 | 6:00pm - 9:00pm Mt Eliza Scout Hall, 4 Ranelagh Drive, Mt Eliza $20 includes wine and finger food.
