Default Moving to Christchurch - Avondale

Hi all,

I'm new to all this but here goes:

I'm moving to Avondale in Christchurch next weekend with my hubby & 4 children ages 15, 9, 2 & 10 weeks & was wondering if anyone here knew anything about what the the area was like & also the schools etc

Any info would be great

Many thanks

Avondale is OK ... reasonably close to New Brighton beach (which is lovely). Also close to Burwood and Parklands which I believe have good schools (not sure about actually in Avondale).

Near Burwood is Bottlelake forest which is great for walks and cycling. New Brighton is quite good for shopping - quite a small high street, but should have everything you need.

My friends used to live in North Brighton, and they liked it - and had a daughter at college, and their son, 8 went to a local primary school.

HTH,

Lou

Hi,

Thanks for the info you've been very helpful

I'm glad the beach is nice my children will love it!

My hubby's just signed a tenancy on a house in Avondale & we all move there on Monday, from what you've written sounds like it should be ok there.

Thanks again
