Relocating ?

Yorkshire was recently voted the friendliest place in the UK. Leeds and Sheffield are on our doorstep as well as the beautiful surrounding countryside. Barnsley has almost half the cost of living as London, so is not a bad place to relocate to. Ok the salaries here may not match up to London level, but when balanced against the savings they come out very favourable !
