Slowing down at The Schanck A 60kph speed limit near the Bushrangers Bay car park entrance is designed to improve the safety of large numbers of people parking and walking next to a former 100kph section of Boneo Road. The lower speed limit at Cape Schanck will be in force until the end of September. It will operate all day, every day. Speedsters sailing through at the old speed risk a $702 fine and sixmonth licence suspension. Truck drivers could be fined $1652 with the same licence suspension.

Smash but no grab A CAR driven by an elderly woman mounted the kerb and smashed the side window of a real estate agency at Rye last week. SES and Rosebud CFA crews rushed to assist the woman who was uninjured and did not require an ambulance, 6.30pm, Wednesday 8 July. Granger Estate Agents director Darren Sadler said the damage bill was around $30,000. He said debris had to be cleaned up and brick work replaced. The front door was hanging off its hinges and plywood panels used to cover the broken window before it was replaced.

A NEW home delivery food service has launched on the Peninsula to cater to the growing demand for preprepared, healthy and delicious meals while we all wait out Victoria’s second wave of COVID-19. With over 10 years of experience in the film and TV catering industry, local chefs Dan Hawke and Reece Morrow have spent years catering for the likes of Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Heston Blumenthall and Chris Martin on the sets of The Voice, Masterchef and Pirates of the Caribbean. With their film and TV work on pause indefinitely, now they’re catering for the Mornington Peninsula in this coronavirus time of need. Dan and Reece, who live in Mt Eliza and Mt Martha, have brought their mobile kitchens from Fox Studios in Sydney with the aim of providing instant meals for peninsula locals. “There is very little going on in the film and TV industry at the moment and we thought our own community, where thousands of people are trying to avoid going out unnecessarily or are working from home. We thought they could use some help,” said Reece, who relocated with his wife and two kids a year and a half ago. “We brought the kitchens and fridges here and have set up our HomeRun Food Co service to help people who cannot easily get to the shops or are just sick of

cooking,” said Dan, who is also a member of his local CFA. “We source as much produce and ingredients locally as we can, ensuring we’re supporting the community that we live in and love.” Home Run Food Co sells a variety of dishes including family meatballs, crushed root vegetables, mixed grain salad and a Mexican fiesta box! All meals are hygienically and safely packed in sanitised vacuum sealed bags and refrigerated until they are ready to be eaten. It is a quick few minutes in the microwave and they are ready to serve and enjoy or pop in the freezer to eat at a later date!
