Friends through so­cial me­dia

Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

A NEW Face­book page has been cre­ated so women in Biloela and sur­round­ing towns can make new friends.

Alex Klease started the Bilo Babes page af­ter a con­ver­sa­tion with a friend.

“My friend Tracey and I were talk­ing about how it would be great to get women out of their homes and mak­ing new ac­quain­tances,” she said.

Alex moved to the area four years ago when she was of­fered a teach­ing po­si­tion in Moura.

Af­ter meet­ing her part­ner, now her hus­band, Alex moved to Biloela in 2014.

“I moved to town with­out know­ing many peo­ple and it was an in­cred­i­bly daunt­ing

and some­times lonely ex­pe­ri­ence,” she said.

“Net­ball wasn’t (and still isn’t) my thing and I felt there weren’t many op­por­tu­ni­ties for me to get out and meet peo­ple.

“Four years ago, I would have loved a so­cial group of women to meet with and make new friends out­side of my work­place.

“Bilo Babes is a great op­por­tu­nity.”

The page has al­ready had more than 230 likes since Alex started the page on Sun­day. “I had no idea it was go­ing to take off like this,“Alex said.
