Cracking day to #SupportLocal for lunch at Oakleigh Fish 'N Chippery
It’s been great to see so much extra outdoor dining spaces created around #Oakleigh on this side of lockdown. Yes, we’ve lost some car parking and petrol fumes, but it’s been replaced by people socialising and enhancing the vibrancy of this unique area. Starting to remind me a bit of Eastern Europe.
I’d like to see some of the outdoor dining become permanent. What do you think? ... See MoreSee Less

It is great, but there needs to be some thought about those of us who have mobility issues. This didn’t happen to me but well could have. I use a wheelchair, I have a neuro condition, I can’t control my body temperature and sitting outside isn’t an option on a warm day even though we love it. A friend of mine had a similar problem.I won’t name and shame but she told I could not sit inside as the outside tables had to be used first and would not listen that it was too warm for me to sit there. She went to the Glen and had a cuppa. Sure she got her cuppa but understandably was not happy with how she was treated.
I love the idea of permanent outdoor dining, at least in the warmer months. I hope it's something Monash are seriously considering and look at possibly permanent infrastructure or nicer looking barriers, other than the orange plastic ones that some areas are using. Would the cost be worth it for long time investment for businesses?
Yep...make it permanent. I don't miss the petrol fumes.
How come your not the mayor anymore?
Timeline PhotosVegemite is one of Australia's most enduring cultural icons. But how did it come to be created? More than 20 million jars of Vegemite are sold every year, but when it was first produced in the 1920s it was met with little public interest.
As part of our Australia Day program, join Jamie Callister (author of The Man Who Invented Vegemite) as he talks about the grandfather he never met in a story that spans the Gold Rush, the Great Depression and two World Wars and recognises the quiet achievements (as well as tragedies) of one extraordinary man.
