What a fabulous night helping to raise funds for community owned radio station Radio Italiana 531. Thank you to everyone who volunteers for this station for your work to connect and communicate with people in our community, thank you to the beautiful people who bring people together at the magnificent @campania_club and thank you to the amazing volunteers here who fed us such lovely (and plentiful amounts of) food and who, between them, have 295 years of volunteer service. Look forward to spending more time with you all and looking forward to my guest spot on Monday. Dal profondo del mio cuore, grazie mille per aver avuto me! Great to be there with @irenepnevm

Sport is a powerful tool for bringing diverse groups of people together, for including and celebrating people and for positively influencing the issues that our community contemplates. It was excellent to once again attend the Inclusive Sport SA​ Inclusion and Diversity in Sport conference this morning and to chat with some trailblazers from across our sports community about how we can make sure sport is accessible to all. Congratulations to John and all at Inclusive Sport SA on another brilliant event - the discussions you are facilitating are making a difference.

Moved, happy and proud to support tonight’s @southadelaidefc women’s best and fairest and so honoured to present the Inaugural Best and Fairest medal to the invincible @nikkigore.2. So proud to have helped get this extraordinary group of women going in the @sanfl_official women’s comp and so very inspired by the courageous and skilfull way these women play and how they support one another. Thank you to all of these players, the incredible @therealsteenmachine, all of the staff, sponsors and volunteers and everyone in our club who have shaped our culture into one where girls and women are able to equally and actively play the game they love. We are indeed #strongertogether @sa_womeninsport #watchthewomen

Thank you so much @bowlssa for having me at your fabulous awards night! Bowls is a sport that brings communities together so beautifully and that was more evident than ever last night. Congratulations to all of the award nominees and winners and to Carol Boyle whom I had the honour of presenting with Life Membership - thank you for all you contribute to bowls in South Australia and thank you to the other new Life Members also for your extraordinary efforts.


Today we mark @idahobit - International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia. There has been a lot of progress made to eradicate discrimination but there is still a long way to go. To LGBTIQ friends and people everywhere, I stand with you and will support and empower you in any way I can. A special shout out to my beautiful Pride of the South mates whose big hearts and dedication see them doing brilliant work to support, bring together and celebrate LGBTIQ members of our southern community , and who run regular events like their fabulous @idahobit forum being held this Sunday from 12 to 4 @flindersuniversity

Feeling deeply blessed to have the gift of giving life - of being a Mum, and a Stepmum - and of having my incredibly brave and compassionate Mum by my side. Happy Mother's Day to all of the Mums and all those who mother, love and care for others in our community.
So much love to all who are feeling the absence of a Mum and all of the Mums who are feeling the absence of children. @checielens

What a beautiful @pakistan_association_of_aust SA dinner to welcome people newly arriving from Pakistan. We are blessed to have such lovely families bring their culture, strength, creativity and vitality to our state. It was a pleasure to welcome them and to hear about their desire to generously contribute to South Australian life. Thank you for having me and thank you to all of the community leaders who spent time creating connections and providing some excellent information so that people can fully participate in and enjoy the life of our state. @relationshipsaustraliasa

I am passionate about our southern community and our state and about supporting and empowering all South Australians to live their best life. I was very happy to give my ‘address in reply’ on Wednesday to the Governor’s speech opening the 54th session of our Parliament of South Australia, and to outline a little about what I will be fighting for for our southern community and for our state: https://hansardpublic.parliament.sa.gov.au/Pages/HansardResult.aspx#/docid/HANSARD-11-28998

So very lovely to see Jenna Turner's smiling face beaming from this week's Southern Times. Thank you Jenna for your gigantic heart, your kindness, your community spirit and the sunshine you bring to the lives of those around you. Your willingness to think of others and to be there for them is inspiring. Jenna is amongst many women and girls in our community who selflessly give their time, energy and heart to serve other people and it was beautiful to pay tribute to them at our awards dinner. You can read more about them here:

Thank you to the @portnoarlungaseascouts crew for everything that you do to include and support our young people and to empower them to serve and support others in our community. Congratulations to everyone who was elected at last night's AGM to continue the outstanding work of your group. Love spending time with you and love all that you do. @auntielager @__edong @robynalchemyst @scouts.australia

Loved catching some great footy with these lovely women and legends of sport. Thanks @sanfl_official for having us. @woodlandsthompson @adelaidethunderbirds @sa_womeninsport @adelaideoval
