Change keeps Thor­son in In­gle­wood

Guardian Express - - FRONT PAGE -

NATASHA Thor­son has wit­nessed her favourite sub­urb of In­gle­wood de­velop and thrive in the past four years.

The Lucky Skates co-owner opened the shop in 2013 but re­lo­cated last year within the same sub­urb to larger premises.

She said be­sides work­ing in the area, she loved to hang out there in her spare time.

“In­gle­wood is de­vel­op­ing and chang­ing into more of a des­ti­na­tion with the help of com­mu­nity groups like In­gle­wood on Beau­fort,” she said.

“The area is be­ing ac­ti­vated with the In­gle­wood Mon­day night mar­kets, planter boxes, street art and other cool ini­tia­tives.

“I love the good vibes, cof­fee, cafes and the night mar­kets on Mon­days; I'm very food-ori­ented.”

Ms Thor­son said new busi­nesses were popping up all the time.

“We’re def­i­nitely see­ing new cafes and small busi­nesses popping up, which is awe­some; I love hav­ing break­fast at Betty and Daves, work­ing out at Un­break­able PT Stu­dio or just chill­ing out at the Town Square in front of the In­gle­wood Li­brary,” she said.

The roller derby en­thu­si­ast said In­gle­wood was a con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion for her sport.

“It's so close to roller sports venues – roller derby, street hockey and recre­ational skat­ing – plus eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble by pub­lic trans­port,” she said.
