Along with David Speirs MP, today I hosted my annual Winter Warmer & Fundraiser event to bring people together while supporting a local organisation or charity.
This year, we supported the Sophia Naismith Foundation, which was created in memory of 15-year-old Sophia Naismith who tragically died after being hit by a car in 2019.
The Sophia Naismith Foundation has a very positive impact on the lives of young people in our community, and tonight we were able to raise more than $9,000 to support the Foundation to continue carrying out its exceptional work.Read more

Given your interest in the Hove Level Crossing Removal Project, I wanted to give you an update and clear up some misinformation that has been circulating in our local community.
Firstly, let me be really clear... no decision has been made on which solution is best for this problem nor has procurement commenced for the design and construction for the project.
As you’d be aware, grade separations of road and rail are a key safety focus of the National Rail Safety Regulator and as such we have been looking at how we can make this crossing and its surrounds safer. In February 2021 Infrastructure Australia (IA) released the Infrastructure Priority List which included “Adelaide Level crossings congestion and safety” priority initiative that identifies the priority for removal through Grade separation.
The Hove Level Crossing has around 35,000 vehicles through it each day and the boom gates are down around 20% of the time during the peak. With development and a growing population along the coast these numbers are only predicted to increase.Read more
