We are considering relocating to Poynton - we have 3 children 5, 3 and 6 months. Is it a good place to live? how is it for children - schools, activities etc?

I know a few people who have moved there, and to surrounding areas. Seems to be very popular with families, good schools and close to countryside. Where are you moving from? We recently relocated to the NW and really like it up here. smile

Thanks. Moving from South Sheffield area - other side of peak district so don't want to be far away from countryside but without living too remote. Poynton seems a good bet, but keen to hear from fellow mums if it is good for kids and friendly for newcomers?!

Ooh I went to a big agricultural show there a couple of years ago. It was really good, and the cows all seemed to be very shiny, if that's a good sign of a nice place to live grin.

I live quite close by and am moving to Hazel Grove soon - Poynton is lovely but the only negative I know about is that traffic is a nightmare as they always seem to be doing roadworks in the centre of Poynton - it may not bother you if you don't need to commute far for work etc.
