For the prize we asked you “What makes living in Moncrieff special for you?” And the winners were………

  1. Moncrieff is special to me because we have great neighbours, a great view and we are starting to build a close knit community. I feel safe in my neighbourhood. My kids can ride their bikes out the front and my neighbours wave as they drive past. It gives you a great feeling living here.
  2. Moncrieff has a great sense of calm, there are enough houses/neighbour to feel safe but enough “green space” to go for walk and not feel like you are living on top of each other. Also everyone seems to take pride in their homes.
  3. I love that Moncrieff is bringing back a sense of community mixed in with culture and diversity and a splash of fun!

Winners will be contacted to receive their $200 voucher. Thanks for participating!
