Hi all, I'm new to Mumsnet and am expecting my first baby in December. I'm not sure if this was the best place to ask this question, but here goes!

Is there anyone who has a young family who lives in Virginia Water? We are thinking of moving there since its close to my family and relatively commutable to Oxford where my husband works (and where we are currently living). Husband is concerned that VW doesn't have many young families and there aren't many things going on which young families might get involved with. He's also concerned about the community vibe in the area - he seems to think that its a place with quite a rich/not so rich divide! I'm not sure how true this is since there are lots of people who live in VW who aren't millionaires and live in mansions.

If there's anyone who lives in VW or knows the area very well, I'd love to hear from you. We want to buy a house but haven't been able to settle on an area yet and this would really help us to make an informed decision. I guess from my point of view it would be nice to know if there are any people in the village who are in a similar position to what I'll be facing in December.

Thanks all.

I nanny in the area. Christ Church has a very popular baby/toddler group (Wed am and pm - that busy they have two sessions).

The area has quite a mix, from those who live in multi-million homes to those who live on caravan parks.
