This week (1-7 June 2020) is World Haemochromatosis Week. Many people may not have heard of haemochromatosis, but it is important for all of us to be aware of Australia’s most common genetic disorder. Continue reading
As the sun rose this morning, like thousands of other Australians I stood in my driveway to #LightUptheDawn and honour our ex-servicemen and women in war, peacekeeping and peacemaking operations, including those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Lest we forget.
To minimise the risk of spreading COVID-19 I will be putting the following measures in place until further notice:
– From Monday, 23 March only two staff will be working in my office at any given time. Other staff will be working from home.
– Staffing restrictions may cause a delay to community printing requests. If you email a printing request to Leanne please also Cc Daniel (email@example.com).
– No events or meetings will take place in the office board room.
– No constituents will be allowed beyond the reception area unless specifically authorised by me. Anyone given permission to enter the office will be asked to sanitise their hands before and after entering.
While I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, these measures are in place to protect the health and safety of my staff and the general public. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Just for a reminder – here are some basic steps you can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases (see image below).
I joined my Parliamentary colleagues Julie Collins MP, David O’Byrne MP & Alison Standen MP and the Geeveston Fire Brigade today for the opening of the Riveaux Road Bushfire Memorial BBQ Area.
Federal Labor Member for Franklin Julie Collins assisted the Brigade in securing a grant to allow the memorial to be built.
There was a delicious sausage sizzle, and an artist from Launceston donated two of her paintings which depicted the bushfire, recovery and hope.
The memorial is a wonderful tribute to the many amazing volunteers who helped fight the fire and provide assistance to people affected. During a crisis like the 2018-19 Tamanian Fire Season, we rely on people like the volunteers of the Geeveston Fire Brigade who are willing to spend time away from their jobs, businesses and loved ones to keep our community safe. I cannot thank them enough for their service and sacrifice.
