Hello

My partner and I live in Surrey. This area is a very popular for Polish youngsters to visit to explore if working in the uk is a good option for for them, situated equal distance between Heathrow and Gatwick Airports.

Our 23 year old daughter has moved to central London and we have a really nice double room to rent for 3-6 months, maybe longer.

The house is small, 2 bedrooms but the room to let has its own private bathroom. The kitchen is modern with diswasher, washing machine tumble dryer, we have sky TV and wireless internet connection.

This would suit either a single female or a couple. The rent is very reasonable.

If you or a friend are looking for your first step on the UK ladder this situation is ideal.

All interested please mail to lynda_wilcox@hotmail

I assume the area is Woking or Addlestone if it is equal distance between Heathrow and Gatwick.

Close, its actually called New Haw which is between both the villages you mention, but usually if you say new haw people say where is that!!!

Do you know anyone who has been here?

Did they like it?

Have you been here yourself?

If so what did you think?

Kind regards

Lynda

lose, its actually called New Haw which is between both the villages you mention, but usually if you say new haw people say where is that!!!

I am not sure. I have never walked around there but as a post town in is Addlestone KT15. Trains do go through Addlestone to London Waterloo.

Yea from where we are you can get a train from "Byfleet & New Haw" station which is 15 mins walk away, to Waterloo that takes around 40 mins, or you can walk the same distance, but along the Canal in the oposite direction, takes much longer by road to walk though and going one station away from London, the benefit is you can get the fast train that takes on 20 mins, and they are every half hour instead of every hour.

When did you come to UK and where did you stay and did you enjoy it?

Kind regards

Lynda

I used to live in Ashtead, KT21, which is the same sort of area of the World. Not a 'stone's throw away' but trains sometimes leaving Guildford go through Addlestone on their way to to London's Waterloo Station.

Yes I do my sister lived near there before she died and my dad had a veg shop there for a few years.

Do you know this joker who is sending me horid messages since I posted this? lennydavies2004@yahoo.co.uk

This is what he sent me "you know poles actually have put over 1.1 million brits out of work since 2004 and your just happy to support them and your british ,shame on you just shame on you"

I sent him a message back to say he was sad.

What I can not understand is why if he hates the poles soooooooo much why is he even looking at this site??????

Anyway at least I do not hate the poles, or any others to be frank, we all have a valuable contribution to make society, regardless of where that might be or indeed where we come from.

I have had people from Belgium, France, Japan, Italy, Spain, and Saudi stay in my house and I have welcomed them all as I have an interest in people from other countries and cultures, and will always treat poeple as that, human beings and anyone who can not do this to mind is crazy, so if anyone else wants to abuse me by mail for my acceptance of the human race, please do not waste your time, bigots have no say as far as I am concerned.

Tell me Michal did you enjoy your stay in the UK? What bits did you like best?

Kind regards

Lynda

Was it the veg shop in Barnnet Wood lane or the one that was in the High Street many years ago?

The one in the high street, he had it for about 10 years and sold it about 8 years ago ithink.

It was almost next door to a pub with a lovely name, The Leg of Mutton and Cauliflower! We used to do our shopping in the shop many years ago. The shop no longer exists. In fact, I was in the shop not so very long ago. If i am not mistaken it is now an antic shop selling stuff taken from houses. There was also a vegetable shop in Barnnett Wood Lane called Garry's, a small nasty little man who all women thought the World of. I even heard that women drove past his shop just to get a look of him!! When I was an undergraduate in Portsmouth many years ago, I met a man who even knew the little veg shop in the High Street. We used to buy our veg there on a Monday morning and the owner of the shop employed a string of young pretty girls. It was the only reason, I am sure why I used to queue up in the shop to buy some of our things! Just up the road was a coffee, called the Kettle Sings run by a very nice man from Sicilia who had to sell the shop after bad publicity. He employed various people and was eventually prosecuted for Health and Hygiene contravention. Health and Safety officers found ant killer next to where he was baking bread. A great shame as he sold wonderful free range eggs. Funny enough, there was a fish and chip shop in Barnnet Wood Lane called Wilcox, it sold the best fish and chips anywhere and there used to be a queue before the old man retired.
