Hello all

My wife and I are considering moving to the area together with our 8 months old daughter. We have actually already made an offer on a new built property at Canonbie Road.

We have visited the area a few times and we really like it. As we both work in the City, the location is very convenient as you can get there by Overground quite quickly. At the same time, we do not know the area very well, so we would be grateful for any tips, in particular:

- is this area (and, in particular, Canonbie Road) safe and family friendly? (The road is very steep so it is certainly not pushchair friendly, but this this comes with the territory I guess)
- are there many activities for children (such as sensory classes organised by children centres etc) around?
- it seems that there is plenty of good schools around (such as Fairlawn), but is it easy to get a place?
- are there many places to shop or eat around Canonbie Road? (Lordship Lane is great, but a bit far to walk).
- Is there anything else we should be aware of when buying a property in the area?

We would be most grateful for any tips! Thank you very much in advance.

Many thanks
Marcin
