Tonight I visited the Seaside Writers and sat in on one of their fantastic fortnightly meetings.

It was great to chat with these writers not only about the opportunities they offer new and experienced writers, but also about local issues ranging from infrastructure to hospitality.Read more
In light of Plastic Free July, Minister Speirs and I had the privilege of meeting Catryn Zappia at her local business, Bare Pantry, which opened this year here in Brighton.
The mission of the Bare Pantry is to provide sustainable and plastic free items to use in your home. The Pantry provides plastic-free pantry staples that customers fill their glass jars with. You can bring I your own jars to fill with the products on offer.
The business champions local produce, while aiming to reduce the carbon footprint of South Australian people. The Pantry itself is 100% carbon neutral, as well as recyclable. They have a range of products, including food staples, home wear, hygiene and cosmetic goods. The Pantry aims to provide a diverse cross-section of products.Read more
Five new positive COVID-19 cases have been detected in South Australia with the cases linked to the Northern Territory outbreak.
To ensure we stay ahead of the highly transmissible Delta variant, new restrictions and recommendations will come into effect later today.
The following restrictions apply in Metropolitan, Barossa, Fleurieu Peninsula, Mt Barker and Adelaide Hills areas in South Australia.
We have reached a critical point in our fight against COVID-19 and it's vital that South Australia takes pre-emptive action to keep our state safe and strong.
Outbreaks of the highly transmissible Delta strain occurring in multiple Australian jurisdictions are putting us at risk.
From midnight tonight, restrictions will be reintroduced in South Australia and reassessed after seven days.
Tonight I hosted dinner at Parliament House for a group of talented music students in our community.

These students played lovely music for guests throughout night and it was a pleasure to say thank you by sharing a meal with them.Read more
