Moving into Kings Cliffe
« Posted: 20 Nov 2012, 19:50:07 »
My wife and I have just bought a house in King's Cliffe and are hoping to be moved in before Christmas. We are both looking forward to living in what appears to be a thriving village community.

I was wondering what current residents would recommend as being the best way to meet people and for getting the most out of living in King's Cliffe?

Hi Mike,

An advanced welcome to King's Cliffe - I'm sure you'll be very happy here.  I'm actively involved with the Church, youth club, amateur dramatics group, village community minibus and have a daughter at the middle school.  I also drink in the Social club on Wood Road.  All of these are social activities where the people are friendly, but obviously some might not be to your taste.

Let me know the sort of things you like to do and I'm sure through the forum we can get you into the community and enjoying all the things we do.

Regards

Graham

One of the nice things about 'Cliffe is that it's large enough to support multiple social circles that interlink with each other but still small enough to be personable.

As soon as you start meeting folk, you'll get introduced to others and rapidly make friends.

As Graham said; do you have any particular interests? That would help us point you in the right direction.

Thanks for your replies! My wife and I are both teachers and so often get rather caught up with work! We both are looking for ways to unwind and socialise. The village that we currently live has lots of activities that are great if you are an older person but not so good if you are not. We have struggled to meet other younger people.

I enjoy cycling (I have spotted that there is a cycling club) my wife has looked at joining a book club in the past and enjoys Zumba. We both enjoy walking and being out in the countryside so Kings Cliffe seems ideal on that score!

I look forward to some advice!

Thanks,

Mike

Plenty of cycling opportunities here- road bikes and off road. Ant, Kirk and I run a monthly bike fixing workshop in Forest approach but we'll all be at the Christmas Fayre, selling bikes and the concept of sustainable transport in the Village Hall on the 2nd December. (Plug, plug!)

I think they do Zumba in the King's Cliffe Active hall - worth looking at their website.

Hi Mike,
Welcome to 'Cliffe! You might consider walking with the re-born King's Cliffe Walking Group. We hope to arrange a program of monthly walks. Watch for details in the village Gazette and here on the Forum. The Book Reading group is tiny and needs more participants and suggestions for interesting reads. It normally meets monthly at member's houses for discussion; tends towards retired folk with more time to read. 'Cliffe is like an anthill; prod the surface and you quickly find lots of activity, possibly too many choices! Consider joining the new Community Plan group if you wish to contribute to the pattern of village development. You may find that you no longer have time to teach!
