ROCHESTER’S Emma Fehring and Steven Letcher said settling in their hometown with their new daughter was a no-brainer.
Three-week-old daughter Ayla was born in Echuca Hospital on December 18.
“We both grew up here and our families are here,’’ Emma said.
‘‘It it lovely and quiet in Rochester and perfect for kids to grow up in.’’
Emma said affordable housing was a definite plus to having kids in Rochester.
‘‘It’s just so much easier to buy a house here and raise a family than in Melbourne,’’ she said.
‘‘Melbourne prices are so much higher and make it really difficult for young families.
‘‘Lower prices definitely cater to a family lifestyle.
