Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): It was great to be out and about on Chapel Street over the weekend and see our local shopping strips coming back to life. Our shops, our restaurants and our bars—I was not short of a beer during the lockdown, but it was great to have a beer out and about on Chapel Street. The outside dining stands that are being built are really bringing our Chapel Street back to life, and hopefully they can become a much more permanent part of life on Chapel Street. But traders are not out of the woods yet, and many did not survive. I really just want to acknowledge the hard work of our local traders and of traders groups like Chapel Street Precinct and Toorak Road precinct who have worked really hard to help traders get through this really difficult time. I look forward to seeing our local shopping strips thrive even further. There is so much more to be done. I want to acknowledge that I went out on Chapel Street after I had got a negative COVID test. I just remind everyone as well that we might be on triple doughnuts, but the Prahran town hall Star Health clinic is still open seven days a week. Please continue to get tested if you have symptoms.
