Gisborne Road in Bacchus Marsh at around 2:18pm on July
30, last year.
Police allege the 49-year-old was driving a white Pajero when
he turned into the driveway of a Waddell Street property and
hit a white fence.
Police who attended the scene said the accused was clearly
affected by alcohol, however refused to undergo a breath test
despite being told the severity of the consequences.
Esposito appeared in the Bacchus Marsh Magistrates’ Court
on Friday February 2, charged with refusing to undergo
breath test.

The knot remains tied

By Jessica Howard

Victor and Valerie (nee Harkins) Duncan will toast their

50th golden wedding anniversary this month.
The Bacchus Marsh couple met through work at a cash
register factory in Dundee, Scotland, where they fell in love
and later married on February 8, 1968.
The pair migrated to Australia in April 1974 and have lived
in Essendon, Niddrie, Melton, Airport West and Tungamah,
before moving to Bacchus March in April 2014, where they
have since loved their new home and community.
Mr and Mrs Duncan are parents to Graham, Allison, Joyce
and Susan. They have four grandsons, three granddaughters,
three great grandsons and three great granddaughters, with
another on the way.
50 years of marriage is quite an accomplishment and
although there have been some trying times, they have
managed to stay as much in love today as the day they first
met. Mr and Mrs Duncan on their wedding day 50 years ago and are located on the right in the family photo. Photos - submitted
