The Beaufort Street Network is positive and proactive group of businesses and residents volunteering their time to create a Better Beaufort Street. Great places don’t just happen. They need to be created by people for people. It takes some hard work. But there are huge benefits for local businesses, residents and visitors. We get an amazing place where we can relax, shop, meet friends, live, work and play. A place to feel proud of.
There are also plenty of personal rewards in helping your community. Check out this Facebook clip of why you should care for others– https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10201781335275182
