I think Launnie (not Lonnie) is a great place to live. January is a time of new beginnings for many people. Packing and unpacking boxes, enrolling kids into school, and starting a new job in a new workplace is a mix of fun, excitement and apprehension. If you’re one of the many people who have turned up here, welcome!
Moving can be hard. We’ve done it ourselves as a family a few times. It takes time to connect into a local community and get to know people. You’ll find out that there is more to Launceston than the Cataract Gorge. Launnie is a great place for food, art, and very good coffee. Launnie locals are often into vegetable gardens and exploring nature. The city is a hub for sport, both summer and winter. We’re into AFL, cricket, and soccer, netball and basketball are quite a big with the young kids. So, if you’re looking for new friends, figuring out the best playgrounds (Riverbend park), we’d love to share our local knowledge. Please do get in touch if you’d like some advice or even a tour around the city.
January is also a terrific time to find out more about Jesus, and come along to a church for the first time. It’s also a time when people look to reconnect with church, or find a new church. In the Launceston area there are a number of great churches. We really want you to get plugged into a church. We’d love to help you find one that teaches the Bible, preaches Christ, and is faithful to God’s word.
Please be in touch if we can help in any way.
