Laughter as vicar comes to town HUMOUROUS insights into religion and life in an English village are coming to Rosebud in a stage adaptation of the Vicar of Dibley television series. “I am a huge fan of Dawn French and the cast of the TV series,” director Keith Gledhill says when expressing his delight at being asked to take charge of the Southern Peninsula Players’ production. A fan of the series, Gledhill chose to bring three episodes to the stage: "Arrival", "Dibley

Granger (the role made famous by Dawn French) supported by Sarah Jeffs, Robert Lister, Chris Kirby, Eric McPhan, Isaac Scmidt, Anthony Connell, Lorraine Williams and Winston Hall.

Live" and "Autumn". The TV scripts have been amended to suit live stage performances. “The Vicar of Dibley is a magnificent example of British comedy at its best,” Gledhill says. “I was fortunate to have had an absolute plethora of talented people audition.

Again, VicRoads’ communication is very lacking.” Crystal Ocean Wildlife Shelter’s Brenda Marmion said while travelling to Mornington on Sunday she saw two dead kangaroo joeys lying beside the road where vegetation had been completely cleared. “Wildlife volunteers are not satisfied with VicRoads’ response to our concerns,” Ms Kelly said. “They have failed to communicate and adhere to the plan that they funded. “There is no point in having a plan if they are not following it. She has called for the freeway median strip clearing to “stop immediately and for VicRoads to rethink the entire project”. Safe system road infrastructure program director Bryan Sherritt said VicRoads “recognised the importance of the environment – that’s why we’ve completed a redesign to minimise the impact on the environment and wildlife before installing these life-saving treatments”. He did not explain how the works had been “redesigned” other than to say the Mornington Peninsula Freeway as “one our state’s most high risk roads” would receive flexible safety barriers between Mt Martha and Rosebud. “As part of this safety upgrade, we’ve had to remove some vegetation which we’ve done in consultation with the CFA and local wildlife groups. At least two qualified zoologists will be on site during any vegetation removal to identify and assist any wildlife which may be displaced.” “VicRoads has worked with the AWPC and informed local wildlife shelters of the works due to occur,” he said. Vegetation removal is due to begin later this month.
