I moved to Watford in 2005 from London with my two children. One of the reasons why I moved was because of the good Ofsted performance of the schools, streets were safer for the kids to play and that there were many surrounding parks and open spaces.

For me Watford is one of the best places to work, live and raise your children. Also, transportation into London or even heading up north is near. We are blessed to have the football stadium, a theatre, a hospital and Harry Potter studios just around the corner. There are plenty of activities for people to do and of course there are fantastic hard-working councillors that really want to keep on improving lives of Watford residents and to bring the whole of society with us.
