Medical Update

Hi everyone.

Prior to Christmas I was diagnosed with a slow-growing meningioma (brain tumour). My treating medical professionals are monitoring its progress but at this stage it does not pose a serious threat to my health.

I do however need to undertake some other treatment which means I am taking a short leave of absence from Parliament. I look forward to returning in the near future.

I am still available to serve my Tasmanian constituents so if you have any issues or queries I can help with please feel free to contact my office.

I’d like to remind anyone who wishes to support brain cancer or brain tumour patients to please donate to Cure Brain Cancer.

Thanks to everyone who has shown care and support.

Regards,
Catryna.

Whitewater Walking Track Petition

Getting more active is good for you, and our community as a whole.

The Department of Health recommends 150 to 300 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a week for adults between 18 and 64 a week.

There is a petition before the Kingborough Council to continue the existing Whitewater Creek walking track through the Spring Farm and Whitewater Park Estates and across to Huntingfield.

It would complete the ‘missing link’ and allow safe pedestrian and bike access from Kingston Shopping Precinct/Kingston Park, along the existing Whitewater Creek track, all the way down to Snug.

While the project is yet to be discussed by Council I believe it could provide a significant benefit to the Kingborough community.

I encourage everyone to take a look at the petition and consider signing it.
