    we’re a family moving out of greater London to Faversham. We’ve had an offer accepted on a house (very near station as we’ll both commute) but haven’t got a moving date yet. We have a 7 year old and a 7 month baby. I’m after some reassurance that it’ll be easy to meet people, make friends, settle in etc. Interested to hear from others who’ve made this move and how they’ve found it, any tips etc. Anything else useful would be great, thanks!

    I’ve lived between London, Kent and São Paulo, Brazil for long stints at different stages of my life and one of the most refreshing things about coming back to Kent is how friendly everybody is. There is a very strong sense of community all over Kent and local businesses and activities are largely family orientated. You can rest assured that it’s generally a very quiet and safe in Kent, and, although you don’t have buzz and bright lights of London, there is a wide range of things to do and places to go from historic sites to local festivals. First port of call is to find your local pub and meet your neighbours. At weekends venture out to farmers’ markets and family days at places like the Hop Farm, try some local produce and enjoy the calmness of the Kentish countryside.
    You’ll find friends through meeting parents from you’re daughter’s school and keeping up-to-date on what’s happeneing in Kent is becoming ever easier with most business having online/social media presence.
    Faversham has some great restaurants and there are enough family-friendly country pubs to keep you busy discovering for a good while! The Kent Food app is a good way to discover all things exclusively Kentish and as you settle in you’re bound to discover more and more to keep you falling in love with the “Garden of England”. Enjoy and get in touch if you need any recommendations!

    Thank you for such a full response, I’ll definitely download the Kent food app! You’re right, I’m sure we’ll meet people through the school and we have already met one of the neighbours who was feeding the cat at the place we’re buying! I work in museums so am definitely up for the local historic sites as well as family days out. Good to hear it’s a friendly place, that was the impression we got. Thanks again, Megan
