Celebrations in our Community!

I have really enjoyed the last couple of weeks visiting some of my residents and hearing their wonderful stories.

Warren and Joan Dorling recently celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary.  Having lived in Warradale since their wedding day, I loved hearing about how they started dating and stayed together over the last 60 years. 

Rachel Favilla is an exceptional young lady who, despite her own health battles, has become a qualified nutritionist and author.  Focusing on her own life experience Rachel now shares her passion for healthy minds, healthy bodies and healthy foods with plenty of laughs along the way. 

Ian and Helen Wright also celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary recently – in Egypt!  Whilst I had to wait to catch up with them following their return, it was great to hear all about their trip and what they get up to when they are not travelling the globe. 

I also able to catch up with the members of the Marion Bowling Club, Marion Probus Club, Brighton & Seacliff Yacht Club, Somerton Yacht Club and Somerton Park Surf Life Saving Club at recent events and speak with locals at my Somerton Park and Warradale Listening Posts and check out the brand new North Brighton Community Garden at their recent open day.

Fix Brighton Road – Hove Crossing

We know how important it is to involve the community in this process and just like with Oaklands Crossing, the government wants to hear from you to make sure we get the design right for this vital piece of infrastructure.  

I am inviting you to meet members of the Project Team and to have your say on what you would like to see happen at the Hove Railway Crossing.

The first drop in sessions will be held at Hove Railway Station and Brighton Central Shopping Centre on the following dates and times:

  • Tuesday 5 November: 7am – 10am and 3.30pm – 5.30pm at Hove Railway Station
  • Thursday 7 November: 2pm – 7pm at Brighton Central Shopping Centre
  • Saturday 9 November: 10am – 2pm at Brighton Central Shopping Centre

Sturt Police Station – re-opened

I am also pleased to let you all know that the Sturt Police Station was re-opened to the public last week.  Following the Station’s temporary closure, staff, vehicles and equipment were moved to a range of other locations to allow the building to be inspected, assessed, repaired and cleaned.

Following its reopening, the Assistant Commissioner Paul Dickson has thanked the SA Police employees, and wider community who were impacted by the temporary closure, for their patience during the last few months. 

The Sturt Police Station is open to the public from 9am to 9pm, seven days a week.
