table3000 Have you ever lived in Somers, or are you just writing this review so it's no longer the 1st suburb and Altona goes up? What are some original reasons Somers is "not good"?

"Relaxed Seaside Town With Loads Of Village Character"

As you walk down the street in Somers everyone you pass will stop and say hello, there is such a warm community feel. There is a leash free zone on Somers Beach which offers you doggy friends to roam free on the winter rugged or summer idyllic beaches of Somers. Somers General Store has recently been redone and renovated to be a bit more high class, it is designing beautifully with beach views and food to get anyones tastebuds excited. But the new Somers General Store did come with some downsides, including high prices and many upiddy people coming to dine there. I myself attended Somers Primary School, which is a great enviroment for any child to grow up in the princapal David Ingam is a great man who really knows his way with young children. If you feel like a relaxed safe life Somers is the place. And only 72kms from Melbourne.
