    What's SHOREHAM like to live in?

    Right, sages of NSC - I need some advice.

    At the moment I live in Poets Corner in Hove and like it very much, although I am starting to want a house with garden/parking rather than a flat.

    It's a flight of fancy at the moment but in a year or so I'm thinking of putting my flat on the market and moving somewhere thats...

    * not too far from a mainline station
    * close to brighton
    * near the beach
    * not a chavpit or god's waiting room

    I quite like the look of Shoreham (and places like Newhaven) as it's pretty close to B&H and the prices of houses there are pretty reasonable - what's the place like to live in? any parts to avoid?

    Or does anyone else have any suggestions? I'm probably looking for houses between the 220-260K mark (and yes, I know that in a year's time it might be different)

    The Shoreham Uncle Sams is TERRIBLE though Marc, as we have long ago already ESTABLISHED.
    Nearest decent one is near the Grenadier in Hove/Hangleton.

    Well you must have been lucky then.

    As an aside, my lad went to get a KFC in Portslade the other day - but came back empty-handed, cos they'd run out of CHICKEN

    I was born in Shoreham-by-Sea, so I have to recommend it as a place to live. However, the hinterland and environs of Shoreham are lively, as today's most-read stories in today's Argus will testify. These are they:

    Sussex man hit by meteorite
    Yobs smash windows of Brighton cars
    Albion friendly abandoned after 22-man brawl
    Worthing driving instructor beaten up in "road rage" attack
    Uckfield landlord found hanging after pub fears
    Eastbourne boy in hospital with fractured skull following assault
    Fire at Southwick recreation ground “started deliberately”
    Four people stabbed in Worthing pub fight

    These reports make Sussex seem like The Bronx.

    Why do you think that the police found no bodies down Boundary Rd last week?
