Ms FLINT (Boothby) (16:26): The Marino Residents Association has represented local residents living in and around the suburb of Marino in my electorate of Boothby for more than 70 years. Successive committee members have worked tirelessly on local issues that matter to our community. The association has been so effective they've expanded into the Seacliff area and will soon change their name to 5049 Coastal Community to reflect this expansion. Seacliff, Marino and the nearby 5049 postcode suburbs of Kingston Park, Seacliff Park and Seaview Downs are truly a beautiful part of South Australia. Overlooking the city, and the sea, the area is home to the Marino Conservation Park, the coastal walking trail and Kingston Historic House. The association plays an active role in the community to ensure residents have their say in the strategic direction and development of the area.

I was delighted to attend a recent public forum, which was exceptionally well attended, where the association presented their 2018-22 strategic plan to hundreds of local residents. It has been wonderful to work with the association since becoming the member for Boothby. We have secured $8,000 for solar panels for the Marino Community Hall, and I assist with their quarterly newsletter. I have also secured $2,500 for seating along the Marino Conservation Park botanical trail. I want to acknowledge the hard work of the current committee: Ric Bierbaum, Beryl Hall, Emma Sandery, Noel Paul, and in particular president David Bagshaw and vice-president Alison Cormack. Congratulations and thank you for all you do for the community. (Time expired)
