Moving home ASAP... to roundabout wherever (South as the general picture)<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I NEED A PLACE TO LIVE, <i>EITHER</i> AS A COUNCIL EXCHANGE OR OTHERWISE SOMETHING "PRIVATE" IF IT COMES TO THAT. I AM OPEN-MINDED and NEED YOUR INPUT OF VACANCIES <b>OR</b> OFFERS/ SUGGESTIONS, etc... or maybe you're a somebody that knows somebody who knows somebody sort of somebody (so much the better its all good, let me know).<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I will begin to list some of the towns or cities (to be edited in shortly) I wouldn't mind living in (for all conceivable & practical reasons for work/whatever (volunteering in forestry maintainance as the main instance) AND most importantly all the things, everything and anything pertaining to life as a vegan) or being within reasonable distance of the following: (to be FULLY "edited in" shortly as I said)...but for now I can tell you, these may include as a general picture, anyplace from Bristol to Brighton... but predominantly near the South and best of all the NewForest would suit me the bestmost....including in that latter area, any major or minor town, as I can be flexible in that most prized location of where I wanna be.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I am even openminded to relocating someplace inbetween the Newforest & London and Brighton & London! I guess that means most of Sussex and Wessex huh(?)<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Anyway, more suggestions of places/locations to come and offers of where I might be able to team up with other vegans or VEGAN (singular or plural) will of course be welcome opportunities and the more ASAP the better too!!!!!!<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Thankyou for taking note, Please Be Sure To Come Back Soon To Check Out This Thread Again For More Of My Thoughts ON MOVING HOME, and of course any input anyone else might like to add, whatever your ideas maybe, and BTW, I'm particularly interested in the convenience of council/housing association housing, but that is not necessarily most important, Anyway, we shall see....<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
MY BASIC STATS: (to be edited in shortly) I am 32 and strict vegan and <_WILL ADD & EDIT MORE STUFF HERE IN A BIT__>, lets just meanwhile get me a chance here.....perhaps even if the opportunity arises with a handful of others in the case of house sharing AS ONE POSSIBILITY or even creating that opportunity from scratch with others, IF that is also something worth myself and others looking into, to explore as a possibility...!!!<br><br><br><br><br><br>

........So above, thats it, HEADSUP THAT IS, HEADING THE GAME OF WHERE NOW FOR ME, FOR MOVING HOME, AND IN SOME CASE MAYBE MAKE OR BREAK MOVE AND WHATEVER~ SO I NEED SOME PEOPLES ATTENTION AND TO GET THE WORD OUT (for anyone seeknig a tenant that is vegan reflected perhaps in the landlord or roommate or flatmate--- being that I do rather insist on being with veg*ns or AT LEAST VEGETARIANS to live with---<br><br><br><br>
.....UNLESS OTHERWISE OF COURSE I GET A NON-SHARE PLACE DOING A SWAP WITH ANOTHER SINGLE TENANT LIKE ME (their exchange of a place to exchange for mine = single bedsit/ tale 2 ppl max) that is ***Council or housing Assoc owned or whatever***........ <b>AND IF NOT darlings, then I'll accept private accommodation also, if a good deal in a good location!</b> And (location again) if in the direction I wanna go in ~ SOUTH or hither to on the way...)<br><br><br><br>
UNLUCKILY OR WHATEVER, its been a SODDING ***long winding road*** (yeah Eeeek!!!/ exactly!!!) TASK IN HAND FOR ME, and laborious outreach effort and ambition of mine to move, so much so, it has taken over my life for LITERALLY years, and that is in no way good. Maybe I'm just not out-reaching enough, I have thought to myself several times, BUT THIS YOU SEE IS WHY AM CHUCKING ALL WHAT I HAVE AT VB AND INCIDENTLY AT VEGANFORUM.com TOO (whereat you will see the same ad as this over there!)....I am UKrelocate at VeganForum, for anyone needing to get their head around that, and whatever perverse reasons you may want to know, lol.

I wish I could help, but I'm in Buckinghamshire which seems to be on the wrong side of London. And our house/flat prices are nasty, I'm trying to help a german friend find a palce right now and it's proving really hard even though we're out of the London price bracket <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/doh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":doh:">

well, thanx for the tid-bit of how nasty rent price can be anyway, even as you say, outside of London. (<b><span style="text-decoration:underline;">not</span></b> that I would jump at living actually *IN* London and as maybe so, not in the IMMEDIATE surroundings, but I am willing to keep an open-mind about wherever I end up, at least until I get more idea of what rents might be at least anyways!!!!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> And roundabout London is not a first choice for me at any rate, unless in a town outside of London.<br><br><br><br>
Where in Buckinghamshire are you Shantih, is it a typical town you live in,, or an upmarket market town? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

i think you should look into GLASTONBURY, Somerset... or the surrounding area. there are loads and loads of spiritual/eco/meditation/vegan/alternative minded people there, its like a mecca for the new age, its got pretty good transport links to big cities like Bristol, and smaller ones like Taunton, and large towns like Yeovil, but its close enough to the countryside too- the somerset levels and lots of foresty stuff is pretty much on your doorstep, and the sea is only 30 minutes drive in places. I don't know how easy it would be to get a council house exchange there, but there are always lots of alternative people coming and going, and a good community vibe amongst them, so with the right links (dunno what they'd be, sorry, but i could maybe ask someone who might know) you might do ok there.<br><br><br><br>
just a thought.

I live in Aylesbury, so we've got a bit of a contrast. £1 mil houses and then on the other side of town £350pcm apartments. It's a very modern vs Old English sort of town. I wouldn't give up on this area though, we've managed to find a few alright places for £400pcm which is really the lowest you can go, and there's beautiful countryside around here and a trainline that goes straight to London in an hour.<br><br><br><br>
Jen's suggestion of Glastonbury sounds good though, Somerset is wonderful <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/notworthy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":wayne:">

k, Shantih I won't give up on that area, IF by some default or distraction, it dawns on me someplace near in the region of Reading is the order of the day, we'll see.... Like I say, openminded... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><i>.....(I actually already had Reading in mind as possible destination should I end up there!....Who Knows... I just have to keep my ear to the ground!!)</i><br><br><br><br>
And Glasto!...I know, but actually what do I know, it sounds alright in principle, but not sure I would live in Glasto itself, maybe somewhere nearish though, or if not I could just take myself to Bristol instead ~AS ONE OPTION MAYBE.<br><br>
I still think though the NewForest is more my scene for my most common pursuit of cycling and the kind of leisure & nature I like!.....<i><b>However,</b></i> I wouldn't mind at least visiting the kind of events and such in and around Glasto, but green festivals and the like are not always held there.... so again, open-minded to each regional tout (wotnot)!!!<br><br><br><br>
Thanx both so far;; for the input... ((VACANCIES, even better!)) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">

oh, what do you mean?? you're curious as to why I have not done so yet ?....well, not being funny but why would you care not being in the UK kpickell ?<br><br><br><br>
I will edit things into the OP where I said that, and probably in a new post, these will be edits of places I will consider on my list for where to go.... but already people will see and have an idea of where I'm aiming for....<br><br>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">And just to remind everyone, I am open to a fair number of possibilities, even if not council housing (if the accommodation offered is long term guaranteed, whereas for council housing there is not that worry) so I HAVE TO BE CAREFUL about who I go with, just as landlords have to be informed about me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"></span>

Well your intuitions are correct. I've never stepped foot outside of the United States. But I keep that a secret to most people.
