Caroline Springs Community Safety Day

The Lions Crimewatch Committee in conjunction with the Lions Club of Melton/ Caroline Spring embarked on a Community Safety Day at the Caroline Springs Shopping Centre on Saturday 4/3/17.

The purpose of the day was to promote the Lions Club of Caroline Springs in an attempt to encourage an increase in membership. 


We were supported by the Victoria Police/ CFA/ SES/ City of Melton Safety Awareness Team and Lend Lease (Caroline Springs Shopping Centre of Management) Projects supported and promoted were Operation Safe Plate, Kids Safe (Don’t leave kids in cars program)   Driver Reviver and other Crimewatch Speak Committee initiatives.

The day was hugely successful with many enquiries about our projects, and what our membership aims to achieve in the Community.

Lions Club of Melton Members were very proactive in the Shopping Centre complex engaging with the members of the public and handing brochures about Lions.

Lend Lease purchase 8 kidsafe metal signs for placement in the car-parks around the centre.


The Bunnings Community Activities Officer also approached us and suggested the Lions Club of Caroline Springs would be most welcome to display material in their stores as part of the Community Involvement initiatives.

Lots of rides for the kiddies, plus animal farm, music and of course a very loud Police vehicle amused the children with its sirens and lights. At least 50 vehicles had safe plate’s screws attached by members of the Victoria Police Community Involvement Team

WE also had a specialist team in attendance checking vehicles to ensure the parents had the child restraints fitted within the appropriate guidelines. We had a consultant to Melton City Council (Mr Russell Jackson) approach us about a possible twinning initiative with Chinese Clubs.

A very worthwhile initiative and well worth the effort by the members who attended who must be congratulated for the dedication to the day
