Probus is a non-political and non-sectarian

semi-retired members companionship, per-
sonal support, common interest group activi-
ties, travel opportunities and a relaxed monthly
group meeting with plenty of laughter.

fund raising is permitted under Probus club

TURNING Point researchers are encouraging
people who drink alcohol or smoke tobacco to par-
ticipate in a free brain health check this New Year.
The health assessment, which measures the
effect of lifestyle choices on the brain, involves a
state-of-the-art Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
scan and a series of cognitive thinking tasks.
Turning Point and Monash University Professor
Dan Lubman says the New Year is a perfect time
for Victorians to pay attention to their wellbeing.
“People may have over-indulged in more than
just pudding during the Christmas period – con-
sumption of cigarettes and alcohol generally in-
creases during this time,” he said.
“We are offering participants a fantastic oppor-
tunity to check their brain health, free of charge,
using state-of-the-art brain scanning technology
which would usually cost hundreds of dollars,”
Prof Lubman said.
Participants will be financially reimbursed for
their time, in addition to receiving a free assess-
ment of brain structure health by a qualified ra-
diologist. The assessment will take a total of four
hours to complete, including one hour inside the
MRI scanner, and is located in Clayton. For more
information, call 9905 1402 or visit www.tinyurl.

THREE properties abutting an unnamed
road outside of Koonwarra have been causing
confusion for the general public, transport ve-
hicles and emergency services.
Currently all three properties are addressed to
Caithness Road, Koonwarra when in reality they
should be addressed to this unnamed road.
South Gippsland Shire Council has moved
forward with the request from landowners for
a new road name, with ‘Dashan Lane’ passing
the required compliance checks.
Council utilised voting polls for residents which
allowed for a clear and distinct favourite. After
council’s decision recently the proposal will now
be sent forward to the Registrar of Geographic
Place Names for final consideration and approval.
Subject to the approval, notification will be
given to the affected landowners and public.
South Gippsland Mayor Councillor Lorraine
Brunt has spoken about the importance of
good communication between Council and the
“Public safety is of upmost importance. Nam-
ing this road will ensure the safety of the resi-
dents and allow emergency services access,” Cr
“There were few objections received in response
to the voting on the residents behalf, Council is
happy with the final outcome,” said the Mayor.
