Will never forget this area

My area is convenient to say the least, there is a church, primary school, high school, corner shop, supermarket less than 10 minutes away. I always see owners walking their dogs every time I look outside my window so it is dog friendly. And my street is very clean. There is never trash or rubbish on the floor and the air is breathable and clean. The aesthetic in my street is great too especially during a sunrise. There is a plum tree within my view and it is truly a beautiful sight.

Transport

Even though I have the option of a car as transport. I choose to take the public transport because of how comforting and relaxing it is for me. The bus stop is so easy to approach, it is right across my house so I never have to rush out of my house, I can take my time and plan out my journey well. There is so much information available online about all transport which makes setting your journey ahead easy and hassle free. Bus drivers are always kind and helpful, sometimes I need help with directions and they are always ready to assist. The only problem could be rush during school hours. However even that is nothing big. I just avoid school hours and I’m good to go. The bus is always clean, you can tell it has been cleaned. There are windows which help with stuffiness. The most effective thing about transport is the bus times tracker app. I enjoy taking the public transport as it gives me an opportunity to think and observe.

I have a driveway which can fit 3 cars in it therefore parking space is great. And there are many streets nearby to park on. My area is usually very quiet, the only noise comes from the fox in the very late hours. I have friendly neighbours who have a happy family. And we always greet each other. Bin collectors are consistent and do their job well. We always make sure everything is ready for them. My street is great for taking walks as the air is clean and fresh and the road is never packed. I also have many stores nearby in walking distance which makes grocery shopping and necessity shopping exceptionally easy.

Amenities

I am 18 years old and have been living in Croydon for all of my 18 years of living. I couldn’t possibly imagine moving out of here. To me Croydon is a nostalgic and comforting area, not only does it offer shops of all sorts but a memorable experience every-time you are in the area. I love Croydon and the many lovely people I have met in the area. One of the most popular facilities in Croydon is whitgift centre, a shopping mall, which is my most visited area. There are food stores, clothing stores, necessity stores, everything there. As well as that there is a bus station at a walking distance which makes travelling incredibly easy. To add to the joy, there is always a beautiful singer or preacher busking in the middle of the street. Hearing the melodious voices of random people will brighten your day. The energy they produce is surely contagious. The quality of the restaurants is also excellent, staff are always available to help and I don’t shy away from asking about anything. I personally love Nando’s, a Croydon fav, and the donor shops. Living in Croydon has really made me happy and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

The houses are very big and nice, during Christmas everyone decorate the house with lights and it was like in movies. We all have big gardens which are suitable for pets and kids for sure... The only inconvenience might be the tram, if you stay in the garden you can hear the tram passing but for me it s ok.

Transport

Transport link in my area is very good. I am walking 4 min till the bus station from where I can take 3 buses plus night bus and it goes to East Croydon Station from where you have all the buses, trams and trains to go where you need to go.

Community

Parking is free, bin collection always on time, nice neighbours, quiet street, very nice houses, local shops sorounding the area, a big park nearby.

Amenities

I have a lot of restaurants, bars and shops around my area. I have a big box park, which is very popular, before Covid they had a lot of nights with music and drinks, where you can have a lot of fun with friends. As a restaurant I like Mahala, it is Romanian, nice food, traditional meat, nice offers on sharing platters, and they even have a small garden. And the best of all is the Turkish restaurant, the food is amazing, the atmosphere, the service, the Turkish tea and coffee amazing, I Don t have enough words to discribe my experience there.

Transport is what you'd expect for a low income support area with multiple trains running from London Bridge and London Victoria to Epsom Downs via East Croydon we've only a 10-minute ride to East Croydon there was also multiple buses which run to Stockwell in Central London as well as buses that go to West Croydon

Community

This area is not good for families to live in as it is constantly noisy it is a 10-minute walk to the library a 20-minute walk till the nearest shop which is a Tesco it is on a one-way system or there nobody sticks to it it it has easy access to bus stop and the local park
