Change keeps Thorson in Inglewood
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.
