Rosalie Lomas

Having lived in several Victorian country towns my husband and I knew what we were looking for when we decided to settle in the Beaufort area. The town offers all the amenities that we could want and is a good size to have an active community. I have been involved in various community groups in each town we have lived in, and have provided admin support and ‘feet on the ground’ practical help as my way of giving back to the local area.
