Hello and Welcome to My Website!

I decided to set up this site as a communication opportunity for myself and most importantly – you – the people of Frome. I hope you enjoy exploring this site as much as my staff and I did when putting it together. I appreciate feedback, and would love to hear from you as to the information you would like made available on the site.

The Frome Electorate and Regional South Australia is very important to me. Engaging with the community is essential to ensure that I have a clear understanding of issues faced by the people of Frome.

CLARE – Listening Post – Wednesday 24th January 2018 and following Tuesday’s until the 6th March 2018.

This is an open invitation to come along and meet with Geoff at the Clare Town Hall ‘Barbara J Long Room’ from 3pm next Wednesday 24th January.

Living in our regional towns, it can often be difficult for you to meet with your local Member of Parliment in his office. Although Geoff often visits the area to meet with people for many different reasons, he believes being available locally will make it easier for locals to meet and discuss ideas or issues. Therefore Geoff will now be available at regular times in Clare and would be pleased to meet you in person. Geoff looks forward to meeting with you soon to discuss any state issues or ideas for your region.

Please call the Frome Electorate on : 8633 1210 if you would like to make an appoitment time on a Tuesday.

A Disaster Resilience Strategy for South Australia

We are experiencing emergencies more frequently and with more intensity. Emergencies have long-lasting and often devastating effects on our environment and our physical, emotional, and financial wellbeing.
The Disaster Resilience Strategy will make recommendations on areas where Government, business, the non-government sector and communities can work alongside each other to make South Australia a more resilient State.

Your input will help to define a shared understanding of what it means to be disaster resilient in South Australia and will help identify new ways that can make South Australia more resilient to future emergencies and disasters. Your contributions in this early stage of the project will influence the areas the Strategy focuses on as it is developed.
You can email your feedback to safecom.emergencymanagement@sa.gov.au
