Mornington pharmacist retiring after 43 years

For more than 43 years, Keith Newton has been a "piller" of the community.

But now the Mornington Pharmacy owner is stepping away from the business to take up retirement.

While many in the community are sad to see the well-known pharmacist depart, Mr Newton said he turned 65 earlier this year and he had earned the right to spend more time with family and work on his golfing handicap.
