I completely agree cheltfan, there's nothing wrong with Painswick at all - or any other areas along the bus routes. It's just impossible to get a feel for anywhere from down here in Bristol so you end up driving around and talking to the locals like a crazed person (I've done that this week
- sorry to anyone who thought me a little mad - hopefully I just came across as friendly!). Obviously I couldn't walk all of the streets in Painswick (or anywhere else for that matter). But I realise my two will be busy with homework/after school clubs, wherever they end up, but it would be nice to know that there were plenty of similar aged children close by who could easily knock on our back door and just drop by without me or their parents constantly using the car.
