Theft of mail in South Yarra area.

By | Crime | No Comments

All MSYRG members,

MSYRG is passing on an alert about a very concerning incident that took place in the Domain precinct last week. It was reported by a local resident.
Several members have observed a young man  taking residents’ mail from mailboxes, opening said mail in another location and dumping the opened envelopes and contents.

The potential for loss of credit cards or other personal information is a concern.

It has been reported to the Police.

We  suggest you report any incident to the Prahran Police-phone 9520 5200,

FAWKNER PARK SAVED FROM METRO RAIL

By | Melbourne Metro rail | No Comments
We are delighted to inform everyone that submissions from the MSYRG and the community have been listened to by the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority, and we have just been advised that no tunnelling or activity will take place on Fawner Park except for the formation of an emergency access shaft in the north east corner. We understand this will leave small building over the shaft and is likely to be in the vicinity of and be combined with the existing public toilet.
It is the best possible outcome and protects the park and also the Child Care and Senior Citizens Centre and tennis courts from substantial disruption.
Furthermore, it means the residents of South Yarra will not be impacted by major drilling activity and associated trucks in the vicinity of Fawkner Park for what seemed likely to have been a period of about 5 years.
Thank Heavens!
