    Hello NeurologicalNed

    Those of us living south can definitely vouch that almost everything is far pricier dahn ere.

    One gain maybe fuel bills, but for those of us who are unwell and at home much more than the average adult, well we don’t see a lower fuel bill than our ‘northern relatives’.

    I’m sure you will have done your research, Brighton can be a lovely place on a sunny day, but like many seaside towns has its downsides.

    Good luck if you decide to make the move.

    Getting back to the point. Brighton may look attractive in the summer, but have you considered in the winter? It's wet and windy. Lot of seasonal work and consequently lot of seasonal OUT of work. One thing I saw when I was down for a holiday. A LOT of old folks homes, retirement properties. theres a high percentage of folks who want to retire to the south coast.

    You’re not wrong, reddivine.

    A very high percentage like to retire by ‘by the sea’ and for those of us who are younger but have equally as many health difficulties we can find ourselves jostling for both GP and hospital appointments.

    If you need any outside care coming into the home it is increasingly hard for home care agencies to recruit any staff given the very high cost of living/housing costs in the area and the low wage offered for such work.

    We decided against Brighton in the end. After seeing the person's house who wanted to exchange it wasn't suitable.
