Whitebridge is one of those hidden gems amongst the local community. To an outsider, it seems like the go-between for people who live in the suburbs and the beach. But when you start digging, this place has something truly unique to offer.
I never had plans to move to Whitebridge, I’ve lived mainly in New Lambton, which I have always loved. When my husband Steve and I decided on a change we wanted to live somewhere different. Steve’s a builder so we found this really cute house on a large block which he could renovate and re-sell. We weren’t planning on living out this way but we felt very relaxed and comfortable with the area and decided to stay. We have now called Whitebridge home for the last 10 years!!
We didn’t realise what Whitebridge had to offer, but we fell in love with the relaxed lifestyle and friendly feel. I love the fact that it’s only a short stroll down to Fernleigh Track to take my dog Billie for a run. We always run into to someone up for a chat along the way.
Every time our grandkids are in town we have to take them down to the dam to feed the ducks which is literally two minutes from our house.
We love the convenience of the local shops at the top of our street. Everything is there that we need. The general vibe of our community is amazing!
We’re lucky enough to have the best neighbours. On Sunday afternoon young Kyle from across the road bought over two lovely flathead for us that he had caught that day. How amazing is that! The neighbours two doors down bought up two bags of lemons a couple of weeks ago, for us to enjoy.
We love connecting with people, which this community fosters. For Steve and I, it’s not just the location, it’s the people that have made it easy for us call Whitebridge home. Steve meets a lot of the locals being the Grounds Administrator of Whitebridge High. The kids love to call him “Mr Willy” thanks to the Simpsons reference.
Locals supporting locals
Over the next few weeks, I will be chatting with some of my locals to gather some insights into what they love about the Whitebridge community.
We also want to hear from you, the Village community. You’ll have the chance to let us know your thoughts by the end of each week for your chance to win some awesome prizes from our locals.
The first local I’ll be chatting with is Thong, Whitebridge’s Takeaway and Café owner. Not only does he dish up an awesome steak sandwich but he also creates an amazing atmosphere with his warm and welcoming nature.
Since 2015 we have been building something unique, with a strong focus on community. At Villager Property we are all Villagers, our story is your story. I use my market knowledge, real estate experience, and my friendly nature to welcome everyone to the Villager experience. Having fun and truly enjoying what you do are key ingredients to contributing to this wonderful community. I’m just one person, a part of something bigger – the Village.
