    CHASING STORIES: UK student Jasmine Richards, who regularly stays in Violet Town, says her experience of learning about what makes news in North East Victoria is rewarding.

    A UNIVERSITY student from the UK travelling and studying a semester abroad in Australia has spent good time gaining experience while living in Violet Town.

    Jasmine Richards regularly visits and stays with a flatmate in Violet Town while also studying journalism at RMIT in Melbourne.

    “I’m used to living in big cities back in the UK and I go to uni in a big city here too, but Violet Town is lovely and I like the fact that it’s a small town with a close community feel where everybody knows everyone, and being in this part of Australia is incredible,” Ms Richards said.
