ahzross posted Sporty family moving to Ny from the Uk on the United Kingdom forum on May 25, 2015:
Hi Hope you can help advise us. We're a looking to move to New York from the UK. We have 3 very sporty children that need clubs outside of school, including golf. Our children are 13,9 and 10 years old but it will be 2/3 years before we head out. Good schools are very important to us too, just want to give our children the best start in life. Ideally the suburbs outside of New York, to live, will suit us, but still with a vibrant community feel but plenty of green space outside. Is this feasible ? I would be very grateful of any advise offered as not sure which area to concentrate on. Kindest Regards Alex

MAV2015 posted Relocation to the UK: Stockton-on-Tees on the United Kingdom forum:
Hello you all, I am publishing this post because I will be relocated to Stockton-on-Tees within the next month. I am travelling with my wife and my -at the time- two months old son. We are so excited about the idea and looking forward to move to the UK. But we still need to decide where are we going to live. I have visited Stockton before and everyone there has discouraged me of living there. We will follow my colleagues' advice. We would like to know closeby cities/towns roughly matching the following featurings: - Market town where we can get fresh fruit/vegetables on a regular basis. - No more than 20 minutes driving to Stockton-on-Tees downtown (city centre). Public transportation also desired. Most likely we will not own a car till next year. I know there is a lot of traffic on the North-South direction but not that much in the East-West. Could you confirm this? Which road/highway is the best? Which one is the worst? - Quite good for services such us schooling, health and so on. Our son is very young but in some months he will go to nursery school. Safety and security are also very important to us. - Not totally residential. We could not live in a place such us Ingleby Barwick. - Also we would like to know which places should be avoided. I have seen several chav's circles really scaring in Stockton/Middlesbrough. I have already checked Yarm but people in the office always talk about its expensiveness. Is it really that expensive? Looking forward to hear from you. Thank you very much for your invaluable help.

Nargis initially posted:
Hi everyone! I am from Tajikistan (Central Asia).I am intending to visit UK in June, 2015 for the purpose of studying for my Master Degree, which takes 2 years. I would like to invite my family to UK to live with me during this period. I have heard that in London kindergartens for the children above 3 are cost free. Is it right information? Could you please answer this question asap? Thank you! Nargis

Hello Nargis, All 3 to 4 year olds in England are entitled to free nursery education for 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year. If you have younger children or need more childcare hours, you need to pay for it. The full-time education at school starts at the age of 5. For more information, check https://www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/free-childcare-and-education-for-2-to-4-year-olds and http://familytolondon.co.uk/childcare-in-london/ Kind regards, Family to London

OscarHyde posted Whoever needs a moving company in London, UK on the United Kingdom forum:
I lived the last twelve years in London, and unfortunately needed to move quite a lot around the city. I used only one removals company the whole time, talking about 6 or 7 times (lost count, seriously), and I'm very pleased. So, it's just a recommendation for whoever needs help on a relatively affordable price. The company is Removals Brixton office@removalsbrixtoncentral.co.uk http://www.removalsbrixtoncentral.co.uk/

Hi everyone, I used to live in Boston, MA and moved to London 7 years ago. How time flies. Over the past years I worked at a big US tech firm but recently launched my own start-up. Upon arriving in London so many years ago I was fascinated by all the cultural activities London has to offer. Did you know that London has over a thousand museums and galleries? What I found puzzling and painful though was how hard it is to discover those cultural activities. Hence, I decided to start Culture Key which helps people living in London and those who have recently arrived easily find great things to do also beyond culture (e.g. walks, day trips, markets, things to do with kids, etc.). If you have an iPhone you can download it here for free: https://appsto.re/gb/PdepO.i I've lived in 5 cities and London is by far the most exciting when it comes to cultural offerings. If you enjoy going to art exhibitions, theatre plays or concerts then you will absolutely love it! If you have any feedback on Culture Key do post it here please. I hope you find it useful. Regards, Thomas
