Hi Steve & Cindy, I have lived many different area`s around the south coast but finally settling down in Christchurch, I have lived here for 20 years almost half my life actually. Christchurch for me is a great place to live and havnt once for a second regretted living here! We are surrounded by the beaches, close to Bournemouth Poole, plenty of transport and generally it’s just a beautiful place to live full stop!
Anyway I guess you are going to find that out if you haven’t already
All the best
