Martina volunteers an enormous amount of time & energy for a number of Port Fairy causes including Belfast Pool, Surf Life Saving Club and Nippers, Port Fairy Football Club, Women in Farming, St Joseph’s Catholic Church, as well as working in her Design & Drafting business and busy grandmother duties. Martina is very inclusive in her social activities and inspiring for women of all ages.
Martina is involved in so many activities in Moyne – Aqua @ Belfast Aquatics, Seaside Singers, Football, Church etc. She is always positive, always encouraging and always welcoming to new people. She has a big family but always has time for others and gives 150 per cent to everything she does. To me she exemplifies the spirit of Moyne- hardworking, no nonsense, caring, kind and fun to be around.
Martina is amazing. Martina was one of the first people I met in Port Fairy and she was so welcoming and friendly, Martina is very inclusive and welcomes everyone in her water aerobic class. Her involvement list in her local community includes water aerobics, football club, surf club, meals on wheels, church reading, the list goes on. She is a legend!
Martina inspire's me because of her love and dedication to Port Fairy and the community. Martina has played a huge part in many organisations in the town - Belfast Acquatics, The Football Netball Club, Meals on Wheels, Port Fairy Surf Club and probably many other groups as well as running her own business. I count myself very fortunate to have met Martina when we first moved to the area in 2007 when I joined the Water Aerobics group. She has always been very welcoming and caring and her continued success with her classes are testament to her ability to include and motivate all, along with introducing new comers to the locals and encouraging them to join in the various activities on offer in the community.
Martina is considerate of others. She is inclusive, welcoming, very involved in the community as she volunteers for many organisations, always considerate of those who need assistance and is prepared to generate this assistance when she sees a need. Martina is Port Fairy at its best and is an integral part of the Moyne Shire.
Community involvement. Martina is everywhere! She is the first person to put her hand up to help out, volunteering for numerous community groups. To name a few...She is a volunteer lifeguard with the surf club, giving up her summer days to patrol the beach and keep us safe. As well as selling and coordinating sales of the ‘ducks’ for the New Year’s Day race. She makes the sandwiches every Saturday morning for the football club canteen, along with organising the footy afternoon tea, photographing all teams AND cooking the Thursday night after training dinner for hundreds of players and members. She makes hundreds of sandwiches for the Belfast aquatics stall at the folk festival and much more! So generous with her time. Very inspiring!
