There have been quite a few negative and moaning comments appearing of late. TonbridgeBlog puts this down to the depressingly long and cold winter causing us all to feel a bit down and I dare say, in some cases, worse than that. So I thought I'd highlight a nice cheery one from a Tonbridge resident who would never leave the town:
"I'm never going be an expat, as I love living in Tonbridge. It's a great place to be. We moved here 30 years ago, brought up a family, and have never looked back. The town has a nice tight centre, which is adjacent to marvelous parks and leisure facilities. We have many cultural clubs and societies,and are surrounded by beautiful walking countryside. Within 40 minutes the train delivers us to the west end of london, and for holidays abroad, gatwick and the channel tunnel are less than an hour away.As long as our council resists siren calls to turn us into a bland 'anytown', and builds to our character (castle, river etc) Tonbridge will continue to be a wonderful place to live.
