Welcome to London Mottingham

Whats the area like?

Hi, I'm looking to move to south Eltham, somewhere between Mottingham and New Eltham station. My partner and I will be commuting to the city, wondering what the area is like in terms of community, safety? I know it doesn't have much going on but have heard that it has improved over the years and there are plans for future development, especially due to what's going on in Woolwich/Crossrail.

Appreciate any advice

What are council flats Kersey Gardens like?

Hi there. I am downsizing to a housing association flat from Chislehurst. I have heard a few scare stories about the area, is there any truth in this? My kids are saying there is anti-social behaviour problem there. I like the flat but am a bit worried. I have to decide by the end of the week. I am in my sixties and retired. Thanks

I lived at 56 Beaconsfield Road !

I moved into 56 Beacosnfield Road in 1971 when I was 1 and lived there for 10 years. The estate opposite was built soon after we moved in so I have only seen pictures of the fields you refer to. Which year are you talking about?

Prefabs in Mottingham

Hi everyone, I am hoping someone will be able to help me here. As a child I lived in some Prefabs in Mottingham, I believe the address was 4 Wayside Gardens, I remember there were 2 rows of prefabs with a slope between them and woods at the bottom of the slope, I imagine they are no longer there, but does anyone know for sure, or what has been built in their place?

Many thanks and regards

Child Day Care

Really dificult to go on anyone else's experience of a nursery - what suits some families might no suit others. You need to take enough time to call round, with your child, to all the various options and just see wha FEELS right for you. Get the guidance booklet free from the Day Care Trust - go to their website - so you know what to look for and what sort of questions to ask when you call.

Also don't dismiss the other options such as a child-minder or nanny share - they can be more flexible. YOu have to pick your child up on time from a nursery!

renting out rooms

Hello. I'm thinking of buying a house in Mottingham. What are my chances of finding lodgers, do you think? Is there any demand? It would be a nice home, with me living in it (I'm 43, so it probably wouldn't attract very young students - but possibly post-grads or other mature people?). Any opinions very welcome!

Moving To Mottingham.

I have just bought a one bed flat in Mottingham...can anyone tell me a bit about the area. Is it safe, friendly, etc. I live in Blackheath now but cant afford to buy in SE3. My vibe when going to Mottingham was positive.

It was either Plumstead, Charlton, Eltham or Mottingham. Mottingham seemed the best buy.

Any advise would be great.

Tnx

I have recently moved into the area and need to register with a new doctor, could anyone reccomend a good doctors surgery?, preferably with at least one female GP.
