We respect the responsibilities the audience bestows upon us and we know our role in the community is an important one. “We intend to fully honour that trust. Our Seven Toowoomba sales office has many long and established relationships and now it’s time for us to expand on those local connections with this new service,” said Mr Roberts-Smith.
