Like many people moving to a new area, we spent a lot of time driving around to get a feel for the place. I'm talking about 15 years ago now and life has changed. Nowadays, we can do alot of research online of course, which saves a huge amount of precious time. You don't always get the full picture though; I think you have to visit the area to get the full experience, but no one can doubt that life has changed over the last few years, let alone 15!
This is why I became involved with thebestof and will be working with a team of other enthusiastic people, to provide a resource of recommended businesses and local information.
Get involved! You may not agree with what we say, or you may know a really brilliant business or a fantastic event....let us know as we'd love to hear your comments and news.
