"As you will find in many small village towns across England, there is not much ethnic diversity. The population in Wantage is almost all white and almost all indigenous British. There are a few small churches but not many people attend religious ceremonies.

They said it would take between 7-10 years before we would be seen as locals," said another expat in Wantage, UK.
