NEWS DESK Peer support VOLUNTEER drivers and exercise buddies are being sought by the Bolton Clarke Research Institute to assist older women living alone. They would become part of a peer support program for women aged 55-plus. Bolton Clarke and Uniting VicTas are trialling the support service in the Rosebud area. Organiser Rajna Ogrin said research showed older women faced greater social and financial disadvantage than men, leading to poorer physical, mental and social wellbeing. The service, funded by the Alfred Felton Bequest, builds on previous work by the Bolton Clarke Research Institute looking at the barriers facing older women in accessing services to maintain their independence and optimising their wellbeing. “The drivers and exercise buddies were identified among 10 ‘priority supports’ the women thought would fill gaps in their lives, and we’ve worked together to develop these services,” Ms Ogrin said. Women aged over 55 in the Rosebud area, who live alone or are interested in volunteering, can call Maja Green 0447 375 580 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or Rajna Ogrin 0400 253 459 or email email@example.com

Romp around the circular bed SOUTHERN Peninsula Players’ latest production is set in an elegant top floor London flat in the 1970s. Move Over Mrs Markham at Rosebud Memorial Hall is described as a hilarious play about misunderstandings, mix ups and mistaken identities. It revolves around respected, straight-laced – and happily married – Philip and Joana Markham. Farce descends when Mr Markham’s business partner, Henry, also married, convinces him to let him use the flat one night to enjoy a tryst with his latest conquest. Meanwhile, Henry’s wife, Linda – who knows all about his affairs – decides to have a fling herself. At the same time Alistair Spenlow, an interior decorator for the Markhams, also wants a fling with Sylvie, their au pair. “They all want to test out the round bed – in short, it
