Highfields' Own - - Contents -

How long have you been in High­fields for?

We first pur­chased a block of land in 1992 and built our first house in High­fields in 2003 and have lived here ever since.

Our busi­ness, Win­damere Homes, has been based in High­fields for the last nine years.

What brought you to the High­fields re­gion?

We had lived in Toowoomba and al­ways saw High­fields as a good area to raise our chil­dren.

How have you seen the re­gion change since you have been liv­ing and work­ing there?

The big changes we have seen have been the schools, shop­ping cen­tres and the num­ber of new peo­ple which have brought a lot of new de­vel­op­ments to the town with a lot more peo­ple build­ing more qual­ity homes in High­fields.

What do you love the most about the High­fields re­gion?

We find High­fields has a large coun­try town feel where ev­ery­body knows one an­other and is a safe en­vi­ron­ment to bring your chil­dren up in.

Where do you like to take friends or fam­ily mem­bers when they come to the area?

We love tak­ing fam­ily and friends to the cafés, bou­tique shops and the botan­ti­cal gar­dens. There is a lot to show vis­i­tors in High­fields.

What would you like to see for the High­fields re­gion in the fu­ture?

We would love to see a des­ig­nated town cen­tre where it is recog­nised as one en­tity, as well as a con­tin­u­ous growth of the new High­fields Sport­ing Cen­tre, which is a great thing for High­fields.

What is a favourite mem­ory from your time in High­fields?

Our favourite me­mories of High­fields is just see­ing it con­tin­u­ously de­velop.

There is no longer a ne­ces­sity to travel into Toowoomba to shop.

Be­ing orig­i­nally from Toowoomba, see­ing High­fields de­velop as quickly as has, has been re­mark­able.

We re­mem­ber all the va­cant land around High­fields es­pe­cially near the High­fields Tav­ern, and to now see­ing fully de­vel­oped is fan­tas­tic. it

How do you par­tic­i­pate in the com­mu­nity?

it

Win­damere Homes is based in High­fields and we have al­ways be­lieved that hav­ing our build­ing com­pany in High­fields would bring us a lot of pride.

We do also build in Toowoomba and sur­round­ing ar­eas but we take the most pride know­ing that we are one of High­fields’ well-known builders and that peo­ple know the houses we con­struct.

Paul is also a mem­ber of the High­fields Bet­ter Busi­ness Con­nec­tion Group.
