The recent Rotary - organised Drug Awareness Forum was attended by some 40 people from the local community. Whilst the numbers were down on expectation, possibly due in major part to local demographics, the number and depth of questions more accurately reflected the interest in this concerning subject. 

Dr Simon Horne from Point Lonsdale Medical Group, Matthew Ponsford from Ambulance Victoria and Senior Sergeant Tony Francis from Victoria Police provided insights and details on, not only the alarming increase in damaging recreational drugs, but the widespread abuse of prescription drugs.

Q&A went on for some time after the presentations and attendees were then also able to have one-on-one discussions with the presenters over afternoon tea.

The Rotary Club of Queenscliffe would like to reiterate our thanks to the speakers, Point Lonsdale Primary School for the use of the school hall and facilities and to the people attending.
