De­clan joins the team

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

G’day, my name’s De­clan Martin, and you’ll be see­ing more of me around Tatura soon as the new Guardian re­porter. I’m ex­cited to start with the Guardian. I look for­ward to re­port­ing all the news hap­pen­ing in the town and look for­ward to meet­ing as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble.

My col­league Tara Whitsed is pass­ing on the ba­ton and has done a great job with the news­pa­per, but I’mhop­ing to add some new ideas and I’m open to chang­ing it up.

Tatura was my first port-of-call when I ar­rived in the Goul­burn Val­ley and I lived in the bustling town for close to nine months be­fore a move to Shepparton.

When I lived in Tatura, I played soc­cer with the Tatura Ibis’ re­serve side; and I just over­all en­joyed my time in the town tast­ing the awe­some food at its lo­cal bak­eries and pubs and go­ing for runs in Cussen Park.

I will be jug­gling my time be­tween Tatura and Shepparton, but I wel­come phone calls and emails, and I am more than happy to or­gan­ise catch-ups to dis­cuss the big is­sues in Tatura.

I’ll be in town at the Tatura Com­mu­nity House gen­er­ally on Tues­days and Wed­nes­days, but if you are look­ing to get hold of me it’s best to con­tact me first.

If you want to get some­thing into the news­pa­per or have any ar­ti­cle ideas phone me on 5820 3231 or con­tact me via my email de­clan.martin@shep­p­

Ready to write: For­mer Tatura res­i­dent De­clan Martin is the new Guardian re­porter.
