Re: Keep chasing dreams or move back?

Re: HELP - suggestions for areas outside of LDN....

I live in Oxted, Surrey. It's a lovely town (but expensive!) however the surrounding areas are cheaper. Easy commute to London and a great community!

Re: Chislehurst, Kent or Broxbourne or Bishops Stortford
