We are thinking of moving to upton area & would be great to hear if its a friendly place for single mum & 12 yr son. Or if anyone knows other small towns , villages in the area as I really like Hanley castle school .
any thoughts ideas or anyone fancy meeting for a coffee as we only live 20 mins away now.

I hear Hanley Castle is good, and it is a lovely area round there. I don't know anyone from Upton, though we cycle through there often as Upton Marina is one of our routine stops - 15min in the car from us

Thanks so much for your thoughts on this. we need to move on M5 corridor hence upton as sons dad lives there but just looking for a friendly community with a good state high school so any ideas would be great.
Dad will be working in welsh valleys 20 mins from Cardiff . We have thought about m4 corridor but nowhere jumps out.

Have you looked at Tewkesbury? Bigger, but it has a leisure centre (brand new one actually, just opened last week), a range of shops, theatre, takeaways etc. Might be more appealing to a teenager, and mean less ferrying round.

I think Upton is the largest place that feeds into Hanley Castle - its all villages otherwise. Welland always looks nice, but I don't know what its like to live there.
