Local groups come together for Safe Plate Day
MELBOURNE, 23 OCTOBER 2018
Local residents, Victoria Police and community groups came together on Saturday at Frasers Property Australia’s Berwick Waters development for Safe Plate Day.
The community event was co-ordinated by Frasers Property Australian in partnership with Casey Neighbourhood Watch and Sikh Volunteers Australia, who were on hand on the day to fit anti-theft screws to vehicle number plates.
Berwick Auto Electrics and Mechanical also put a spotlight on safety inside cars with free child car-seat checks and child safety restraint fittings.
Representatives from the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council were on hand to install GPS anti-theft vehicle trackers as part of a joint initiative in Melbourne’s south-east with Victoria Police.
Wet weather didn’t deter more than 100 people from attending, with the Lioness Club of Berwick and Lions Club of Narre Warren keeping them well fed with a fundraising sausage sizzle. The GPS trackers and child car-seat safety checks proving most popular.
“It was great to see people come together on the day to support an important community safety initiative,” said Sarah Bloom, General Manager - Residential Victoria, Frasers Property Australia.
“Safe Plate Day really highlighted how strong the local community is around Berwick Waters.”
Located 50km south-east of Melbourne, Berwick Waters is a joint venture between Frasers Property Australia and Mondous Property Australia in Clyde North.
On completion, Berwick Waters will be home to more than 6,000 residents, who will enjoy more than 50ha of parks and open spaces, including 9km of shared bike paths and walking trails.
