Veronica de Friez - Westport Newcomers Network

Kia ora,

My name is Veronica de Friez. I am the newly appointed Newcomers Co-Ordinator for the Westport/Buller region.   Having spent the past 14 years enjoying marvellous family holidays at our Carters Beach bach, my Westport born husband Bill & I decided Carters Beach was to be our permanent home.   Now that we’re happily settled in, I’m keen to become part of my community and assist others to do the same.   I can help you get in touch with other new comers, meet the wonderful locals, introduce you to the excellent local clubs and exciting activities happening, while also helping you to feel at ease in your new home.  You can contact me on (03) 789 7659 or 021 321 264. I’d love to hear from you, and also any thoughts on activities we could organise for 2017.

I look forward to meeting you very soon!
