Job well done

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Opinion - Peter Hitchins, Beck­en­ham Kevin Poyn­ton, Mos­man Park RSL pres­i­dent

HUGE congratulations to the RSL, the Kings Park Board, City of Perth etc for the bril­liant or­gan­i­sa­tion and metic­u­lous op­er­a­tion of (last month’s) Re­mem­brance Day cer­e­mony.

It was awe­some to par­tic­i­pate.

Spe­cial thanks to the ‘valet park­ers’.

As an over-80, their guid­ance was a bless­ing, as was our po­lice as­sis­tance on de­par­ture.

Well done ev­ery­one. I WAS head­ing to a func­tion at The Grove Li­brary about 5.30pm on Novem­ber 23, when I came across a traf­fic ac­ci­dent on Stir­ling High­way out­side the Al­bion Ho­tel. A pedes­trian had been hit by a ve­hi­cle head­ing north, and he was ly­ing prone on the road­way.

I wish to ap­plaud all the folk that as­sisted here, no­tably the folk from the Al­bion tend­ing to the chap with their first aid gear, passers-by who were com­fort­ing the driver of the ve­hi­cle that hit the fel­low, and oth­ers who were di­rect­ing traf­fic.

Then there were the first re­spon­ders, po­lice and am­bu­lance per­son­nel, and a spe­cial word for the young woman who firstly com­forted a Euro­pean back­packer who saw the in­ci­dent, and then drove the lass to the air­port.
