Advantages: O.k. for a holiday
Disadvantages: Rough place full of crime!
I always dreamed of moving to the sea side for years ever since childhood. Then in 2009 Myself and my best friend of eighteen years Melanie decided to come for New Year as her friend ran a Pub we bought four dogs and my touring caravan in tow and stayed for two weeks in the freezing cold.
What is the place like?~
Weston Super Mare is in North Somerset on the coast having Bristol and Wales just a short journey away. It has an array of shops takeaways fantastic fish and chips from the take away Papa's. A theatre Sea world centre Museum Weston is very good for holidays. You have another beach just down the Road just ten minute drive away called Sand Bay, it has a private beach looked after by the National Trust. Uphill is also a National Trust Beach. In the summer we have our very own big wheel which shows fantasic view. You can't swim or paddle in the water here one it is sinking mud and two the water is filthy we have one of the dirtiest beaches in the south west.
As mentioned before I came for a short beak in 2009. In 2010 Melanie and I decided to move here as we we were both single my marriage ended and She was Living with her folks we both decided to take the plunge. On the way to moving to Weston with the four dogs in tow and A large touring Caravan we was thrilled at the new life we was going to have in Weston. Then..... everything changed that fateful morning. We was travelling down a A Road just out side Tamworth in Staffordshire when a lorry caused my caravan to snake as it gave off a gust of wind. Melanie had fallen asleep in the passenger seat then woke up telling me to stop messing about I said I am not. I kept calm knowing not to break as the whole lot would of turned over we eventually hit a barrier on the near side. the caravan was written off but we where fine. One problem though we had no where to stay. All our belongings where destroyed we where devastated our dream was over....
Kindly Mel's friend Helen put us up for a couple of months until we found some where to live.
Awfully I had to Part with my babies as no one would let us rent any where it broke our hearts. At first we loved Weston but all that changed a few months ago when druggies moved in next door. They where dealing to young Kids up all day and night and making our lives hell. Weston is a very rough place has lots of rehab centres and high crime. We have both decided to leave and move back to Yorkshire where I once lived. I can't wait to move. I am looking for property to rent as we speak.
Now I'm up dating this review, It's August 2013, I now live in Rugby Warwickshire. I'm going back to Weston Super Mare to collect the rest of my belongings, bring to my new home that I live at with a very good friend of mine who I've known since the nineties. She has a spare room going and said I was welcome to move in for company. So glad I did we get on great never argue, have peaceful time with her two cats and my little poodle Daisy.
I will say tears did hit me today as I'm going back to the place I thought would be a new life for me when I moved there with my best pal Melanie, sadly Melanie left for personal reasons. I felt there was no point being there any more. All my family live in Coventry. My parents recently moved back near Coventry to a place called Exhall.
It's good bye Weston Super Mare, hello Rugby!
Summary: Can't wait to leave this dump!
