Did you know that Leigh-on-Sea was recently named the second happiest place to live in Britain?
Over 17,000 people took part in Rightmove’s Happy at Home Index, with many participants praising the town highly for local services such as schools and doctors, positive community spirit, good pubs and restaurants and friendly neighbours.
Although Leigh-on-Sea was named the happiest place to live in 2016, it’s still extremely promising that the town remained within the top 3 places out of 159 areas, beaten to the title by Leamington Spa.
What makes a happy place to live? As Rightmove’s Research Manager Abiola Oni comments: “We’ve looked at the connection between each of the factors and what contributes to how happy people say they are overall, and it’s the people in an area and how someone feels about living there that makes the biggest difference. So the strength of community spirit, people feeling like they belong and that they can be themselves are all more important than the services and money that they have, though these do still contribute to overall happiness.”
The Ayers & Cruiks team think this accolade is very well deserved. It’s a fantastic place to live with lots to offer, from its selection of independent boutiques and bars, to the seaside and Belfairs Woods.
