Have you recently moved to Oakley Vale?…

Happy Friday everyone!

We hope that you enjoyed the bank holiday – even if it was a little wet and rainy at times!

In this week’s blog we have a few highlights as well as a couple of fun events on this weekend.

Have you recently moved to Oakley Vale?…

If the answer is yes, then we want to hear from you! We want to make this website as useful as possible for both new homeowners in Oakley Vale – and those people who might be looking to move here.


With this in mind we want to hear from those people who have moved to Oakley Vale in the last 6 to 12 months. In particular what tips you would have for newcomers – perhaps there’s a great dog-walking spot that you could share? Or a nice local spot that is perfect to take the kids?

Whatever it is, big or small, we want to hear it! So message us on Facebook or Twitter and let us know. Likewise if you’re a long-standing member of the Oakley Vale community we’d be happy to hear from you too!
