THE very first residents in the brand new land release in Medowie, The Bower, can be assured of one thing.
A friendly neighbourhood watch.
Eleven families were lined up as early as Wednesday last week. for the Saturday 10am official release time.
A large number of further families joined them on the final night, and early morning, before the release,
The McCloy group put on a fine morning for all the families and buyers waiting, with a jumping castle and complimentary BBQ.
They showed their community spirit by supporting the Medowie Lions Club with a generous donation and supplies to run the BBQ for everyone.
The first block of land had its deposit placed on by Mark Oliver, who was lined up first – enlisting the help of his brother inlaw for some of the time.
The original eleven families, who spent several nights camped outside, have forged a close bond and are looking forward to building on their dream blocks – and knowing that at least the neighbourhood is good!
