    Newbie here!!! hiya eveyone =)

    Hiya,

    Ive just came accross this forum and it looks really helpful and welcoming!!!

    Ive been married since October 2005 so fairly new to the army thing altho my hubbys been in for 13 years (hes now 29).

    Im 26, no kids but two dogs and we're at Blandford at the mo, due to move to Aldershot in March.

    Anyone got any advise on where about the best housing to put in for there? I dont drive so any advice on public transport and getting around?

    Also are there stables at Aldershot or near by as want to get my own horse again.

    Thanks, Ellie x

    Hello and welcome to the mad house Ellie. We are friendly .... and very blunt sometimes but at least you'll always get an honest opinion!!
    Don't know to much about Shott but I do know somebody that lives in Middle Hill area. Not bad ... but somebody may know better.

    hehe, thats fine dont mind that, prefer to get a straight answer anyway, at the end of the day i recon that if you dont want a honest opinion, that you may not like..... then dont ask in the first place!!!

    Even though Ive heard some bad thing about Aldershot Im quite looking forward to moving there, gonna be ace being so close to London compared to being at Blandford!!!!

    Contact the HIVE at Aldershort and the girl there will be able to point you in the right direction. Same prob as Blandford at the moment - shortage of houses so get onto the HIVE and ask where's best.

    P.S. Welcome to RP. I've just come from Blanford, well left 4 months ago so it was a while ago!

    Newbie here!!! hiya eveyone =)

    Thanks guys :P and thanks for the pm cookie

    Am going to drop into Aldershot I recon sometime in November/December as we drive upto London loads and pass pretty close to aldershot anyway then we can look round the town and see whats there etc

    Dont know if they will let me onto the actual camp though before were posted there? Any ideas if theyll let me in or not?

    Would be good to see for ourselves what the housing areas are like and if they have any stables or not.

    Haven't lived in Aldershot for years but public transport was always good - trains direct into Waterloo. Seem to remember the closest military stables was at Sandhurst but as someone has already suggested pop into your local HIVE and they should be able to get you information about Aldershot.

    Oh and welcome to RP.

    Hundreds of private stables in the Aldershot/Crookham area - and if you go into Fleet you can even laugh at the horsey people who wear their jodpurs to go shopping...

    Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to be sarcastic.

    I prefer Pink & Fluffy to blunt. Would hate to upset anyone of a sesitive nature.
