Meet the Ashcroft’s
Steve and Jodie Ashcroft talk of the misconceptions people have about moving to a country town
I was stunned how easy it was to find work in Temora. I put my C V around town and bang! I had a great position in business administration. I’ve turned down six other positions in Temora! This exploded the first big misconception we were under.
You hear of poor health care in the country, but we actually found the care in Temora to be a much higher standard than we were accustomed to in the city! No waiting at the Hospital, can you believe that? I can walk straight in and be looked after. Another myth put away!
Cost of living:
When we moved we rented a big farmhouse for next to nothing. This gave us the chance to have a good look at what was available. Housing is so affordable. We can buy a country estate for the price of a house in Campbelltown!
Lifestyle; nothing to do?:
Our boys enjoy a wholesome country life. They have motorbikes, ride horses, catch yabbies and enjoy bonfire nights with our new friends and neighbours. Temora provides a safe environment where people look out for each other. Steve and I tell everyone moving to Temora is the best thing we have ever done. It’s where we live the dream!
