Why I like Nailsea

I have lived in Nailsea for more than 30 years - arriving in my late 20s with my husband from London. We were the only people we know to love the rusty old sculpture in the town centre and the Queens Road wasn't built. We love the low crime rate, sense of community and acceptance by the villagers of the incomers. The schools are fantastic and so is the Courtyard wine bar!

Why I don't like Nailsea

A bigger range of shops and less moaning by the inhabitants would be great - in fact I don't think many of them have 'had it so good' but they don't appreciate the town. More reasoned debate on the future of the town and less kneejerk reactions to issues would be good. Oh! and to finish less politics on local councils and more purpose. Wraxall Parish Council is my favourite full of intelligent, caring councillors.
