Street Art on Beaufort Street

We love our street art on Beaufort Street!

In fact street art and murals was the community’s favourite improvement to Beaufort Street in the Better Beaufort Survey we conducted in May 2015. Thanks to the 267 people who told us what they thought. You can see the survey results yourself at – http://bit.ly/1QDl9wR

Beaufort Street Survey Results and Winner of Montefiore Dinner for Two

Thank you to all those people who took the time to complete our Beaufort Street Survey. We received a massive 267 responses and some fantastic feedback! We’ll go through the feedback to see how we can improve what we are doing to create a better Beaufort Street.

And the winner of the free dinner for two at Montefiore is ……. drum roll …….. Maria Garbagnati. Maria is a local resident and on Beaufort Street pretty much every day. Congratulations Maria! If you need someone to come along for a free feed, just let us know (hint hint).
