IT’S been just over a year now since Nyora
Pharmacy was opened by Sam and George
and the locals could not be happier.
“The response and support from the com-
munity has been amazing,” Sam said.
“When we first opened, we weren’t sure if
anyone would walk in, but now we know that
there will always be a pharmacy in Nyora.
“We have support from Nyora locals but
also the surrounding towns and I’d like to say
that we have the best customers, with the best

He has become an accredited vaccine pro-
vider and can immunise with flu shots for
$19.95, without a prescription or appoint-
ment for adults, or subsidised at $9.95 for
people over 65 or pregnant women.
Medication packs are also popular especial-
ly with patients on more than four medicines.
This is a free service that has been invalu-
able to patients and carers.
Sam and George’s three main aims in Ny-
ora were to open the pharmacy, open a clinic
and then re-open the pub/cafe.
"Recreation on the left, medication on the
The good news is that the clinic has just
been approved by council so the building of it
next to the pharmacy should not be far away.
There is also a growing interest in the man-
agement of the pub/cafe, so the initial three
aims are slowly coming to fruition.
“A year ago we had a barbecue for the lo-
cal community to introduce ourselves,” says
“Now every year we’d like to have a barbe-
cue to say thank you.”
Nyora Pharmacy will host a community bar-
becue on Saturday, May 13 from 11am where
they will have hot sausages as well as hot
prices on many items in store.
There will be free gifts with purchases, 20

Cutting the maximum speed on country roads
is seen by the Acting Deputy Commissioner of
Police in Victoria, Doug Fryer, as a way to have
an instant impact on road deaths and serious
He might be right but paying the price will be
the careful, law-abiding road users who actu-
ally do drive to the conditions.
Mr Fryer was speaking after a horror run of
12 deaths in 13 days on country roads between
the Easter weekend and Anzac Day.
“It is country people who are dying on country
roads,” Mr Fryer said.
“There should not be an unsealed road with a
speed limit of over 80kmh,” he said.
“If we did that we would reduce the amount of
trauma straight away.”
Mr Fryer said the road deaths were “unac-
ceptable and horribly sad”.
In one incident locally, a motorcyclist was
killed in a collision with a minibus on French
Island on Sunday, April 23.
The 27-year-old French Island man, died at
The driver of the minibus, and three other
passengers, were not injured in the crash.
Police believe the motorcycle was travelling
east along Tankerton Road on a left-hand bend
when it collided with the minibus travelling in
the opposition direction.
VicRoads has trialled 80km/h speeds on several main roads in South Gippsland in the past
six months, now police want it extended to other country roads. m111817
