Mortlake Lions Club member Peter Palmer is encouraging senior drivers to take part in a road rules refresher session.

WHETHER you want to find out about new road rules or to refresh your current knowledge, the Mortlake Over 60 drivers session is for you.

A Mortlake Lions Club initiative, Moyne Warrnambool Road Share Group’s Nicole Wood will head the session.

She said the presentation, which has been held in Warrnambool for the past three years, is a partnership between Victoria Police and the Moyne Warrnambool Road Share Group.

The program includes the ‘RACV years ahead’ presentation which is designed for older road users.

It will cover information and advice on how to manage the physical changes which occur and the impact on driving.

“Feedback from the Warrnambool sessions was fantastic so the Moyne Warrnambool Road Share Group wanted to be able to share this information with the communities in Moyne,” Ms Wood said.

“It has been great the Mortlake Lions Club have been able to host this.

“The aim is to share some tips on managing driving as you get older and gives an opportunity for people to speak to the other people about their experiences and concerns as an older person driving around the Mortlake area.”

Lions Club member Peter Palmer said there is always room for more people to attend the session.

“It’s just a good community session, which is really what the Lions are about,” he said.

The free session will be held at the Mortlake Senior Citizens Club on Monday, April 11  from 2pm. For catering purposes RSVP as soon as possible.
