How long have you lived or worked in Oakley Vale?

I’ve lived here now for 11 years, with my partner and 2 daughters.

What brought you to Oakley Vale, was there anything that made it stand out?

We previously lived in Northampton in a small cottage and as an expanding family needed a larger home. Initially, it was the affordable properties that attracted us to OV. After visiting the area we were surprised how much we loved it! The fact that everything was on our doorstep, the green space, picturesque landscape, schools, shops etc and the regeneration of Corby town centre.

What do you love about living/working in Oakley Vale?

We have a lovely spacious family home, in a quiet cul-de-sac. It is perfect for our children, feels safe, has as amazing community feel and within minutes of beautiful scenery. I love landscape and nature photography and Oakley Vale is an ideal base to venture with the kids. The people of Oakley Vale / Corby are amazing, generous and kind-hearted.

If you were to describe Oakley Vale with five words, what would they be?

A fun, family friendly community
