    Best thing though was the Maggie Centre at the Freeman, really helpful with advice and support and somewhere to go while waiting at the hospital. In my experience if you are rural and need to go to the city for treatment, you can never time the journey, usually I arrived early and the Maggie Center gives you somewere to go, look them up they are great. Suggest whatever hospital you choose and whatever area, check if they have a Maggie Centre.
    Good Luck
    Well I did not know about Maggie Centres after having a google we do have one down here in London.

    Northumberland there is a tough old bird lives up that way, I expect she will straighten me out about local places.

    And to boot I suspect a good living in part time cross boarder smuggling may be an option before long,
    a property near the boarder may be a good business move

    The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.

    Re west Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 we lived there for 25 + years!!! great to bring children up employment pretty much just minimum wage shopping can be a pain if you need large household items or if your good lady likes a little retail therapy, Swansea would be an 2 hour round trip or Cardiff which would mean 4 hour round trip. This is from St Florence 4 miles from Tenby.

    If you look at north Pembrokeshire you’ll get an awe full lot more for your money. As far as hospitals are concerned there a joke even the paramedics don’t use withybush they go direct to Glangwili or air ambulance to Swansea.

    We brought our children up there they’ve all moved to England for employment!! so guess where we’re living now? back where we where before we went to Wales. That said its a lovely way of life very slow and I mean slow which can take a little getting used too

    Come to the North East. You can have 10 pints, see George Formby at the Palace Theatre, Fish and Chips ... and still have change from a Farthing.

    Glangwili, at Carmarthen

    and Carmarthen shops would be enough for us.

    Crymych that has one bus a month into Carmarthen !

    We came close to buying a house in Crymych which had a warehouse next door as a joint purchase ideal for cars and diy projects but it had no land.
