I'm hoping that there's someone out there who can help/advise me...

There is a good chance that we might be relocating to the Boston area at the end of the year.
We're from the south-west and don't know the area AT ALL.

Please, please, please could someone tell me what it's like to live in the area....
Is there much to do with young children? (DD1 will be 6 in April, DD2 is just 14months)
What are the schools like?
Are there many clubs etc for young children to join?
Will it be easy/difficult for us to build a new life/social life?

I work part-time as a teacher, but if we move I'll become a SAHM.

It is a massive decision, and we need to make sure it will be the right one.

Sorry - it posted before I was ready!!

I'd be really grateful for any info on the area - good places/villages to move to, places to avoid etc.

Hopefully make some future friends along the way!

Thanks smile

I live between Boston and Spalding, there are sure start centres which offer a variety of things to do I have a 2 yo and 3 month old and can do something nearly every day. It's not to far to travel to the beach or go to Sandringham, I tend to shop in Spalding or kings Lynn. The bigger villages are Sutterton and swineshead to the South of Boston or stickney/sibsey to the North
