Moving to Trowbridge

We're moving to Trowbridge (from London) in the next couple of months with a newborn and her 2 year old sister. Friends who know the area better than us keep warning us that it's not a great place to move to, but it ticks lots of boxes for us (not too rural but close to lovely countryside, affordable houses, good nurseries, nice park, decent transport links and not overly posh).

We've found a great house to buy but could someone offer some reassurance that we're not making some huge mistake??! And any advice about things to do with the kids, groups to join etc, would also be much appreciated...

Personally I wouldn't want to live there (I live in a village closer to Bath).
I prefer Devizes and would happily move there but definitely not Trowbridge, Chippenham or Melksham.
