Our Neighbourhood

We live in a central London residential area with lots of restaurants and shops nearby and easy public transport to central London sights as well as trips out of London to other parts of the UK. Stoke Newington is popular with young families, artists, musicians and other professionals because of its village like atmosphere. The core of the buildings are Georgian and Victorian. It is also a traffic restricted zone.

Lifestyle

I am now retired but my wife, Jay , continues to work at the adoption agency we set up 20 years ago plus. I spend my time playing tennis, squash, painting and breadmaking, We have four children, all of whom are grown-up and we now have four grandchildren..Time seems to pass very quickly. Jay works very hard so we enjoy taking long holidays every two or three months. Covid has had a terrible impact on everything, but selfishly, our holiday plans have been affected.However we are keen to make plans for 2022 and 2023. We are happy to think about holidays either in England Scotland Wales or in Europe, which it seems sadly we are no longer part of! Alan
