From all corners of the world
From 12 to 59 years old, 31 newly sworn in citizens gathered for a citizenship ceremony held in Esk.
Somerset Regional Council CEO, Andrew Johnson, said he was proud so many had chosen to call Somerset and Australia home.
“It is incredibly brave to move to a new country, to start a new life in a new environment, where everything can feel so different,” Mr Johnson said.
“I think we can all take inspiration from our new citizens.”
They came from the United Kingdom, Zimbabwe, Thailand, New Zealand, Russia and the Philippines.
