Merry Christmas from Hon Amy Adams

Merry Christmas from Hon Amy Adams

It is now that hectic part of the year when we struggle to complete everything on our to-do lists before Christmas, juggling work commitments with end of year functions, Christmas shopping and holiday preparations.

I would like to wish everyone out there a very happy festive season. I know the pressures of this time of year can be overwhelming so be kind to yourself and the ones you love and take care if you are travelling on our roads with busy holiday traffic.

Electorate Office Hours

My electorate office staff will be taking a break over the Christmas and New Year period so my office will be closed from Friday 22nd December and will re-open again on 15th January, with reduced hours that week.

If you have a matter that you would like to bring to my attention or think I may be able to assist with, please contact my office for advice.

I will once again be holding regular coffee meetings next year, so look out for the details on my website.

I welcome your thoughts and feedback on all matters so be sure to contact me at or like my Facebook page and tell me what's on your mind.
