Well, we moved in last October, and up till now we'd thought we'd done quite well for ourselves... A lot of people will squirm at the thought of a council estate (to put it gracefully), but we like the no-nonsense architecture of the blocks, the house in the middle, the fact that it's got history ...and let's not forget the Chinese take away!!...
And so we like it, and although we haven't yet made any connections, we're hoping to become part of the community.
We don't know what it was like before, but interesting to know there were a baker's, greengrocer's and a hardware shop.
We'd love to know more! :-)
Sorry about your mother. I bet she knew loads of people on the estate...
