    Posting to Andover - where to live??

    Hi, we are being posted to Andover in Aug 2012 and I wondered if someone could help advise best patches to apply for in the area. We don't mind not being in Andover and my husband is willing to commute for up to half an hour each way. We would like to live near a town/city but don't have to be in it (we have a young dog to take on walks so outskirts of towns suit us!!) we are looking for a decent house and friendly patch. Can anyone advise pls? We heard Wilton was nice and also a small patch to the east of Andover but I can't remember the name... Many thanks in advance!!

    From what I understand Ruth, the pressure on Wiltshire & Hampshire SFA is so huge at the moment that regardless of what you apply for you get what you're given! You'll be laughing for dog walking country pretty much anywhere in that area though.

    Thanks Heli - yes I heard it will be a bit of a nightmare as they are very stretched but wanted to try and apply anyway in the vain hope that somewhere might come available??!! But also if we do allocated somewhere else, then we know if it will be a complete disaster ahead of time!!

    Hi Ruth,
    We're moving down that way too in the not to distant future. Hubby started his new job on Wednesday, and we're just thinking about looking at where to live, it's commutable at a push at the moment, but not ideal. Might see you down there.
    Chaos, panic, disorder, my work here is done!
