Shropshire promoted to London buyers

Shropshire’s stunning property portfolio and healthy lifestyle will be promoted in London next week, May 13, when Balfours Property Professionals exhibit at “The Move to the Country Show.”

Alistair Hilton and Clemmie Radcliffe, town and country sales managers at Balfours will not only be promoting properties currently on their books to the London market, but also the fact that Shrewsbury came top out of 70 major towns in the UK, according to the Royal Society for Public Health, who carried out the survey.

Says Clemmie, “Potential buyers are pleasantly surprised by what Shropshire has to offer, in terms of countryside and market towns, plus of course road network. This latest accolade to Shrewsbury is another positive we can promote.”

The RSPH says that rather than simply counting the total number of different businesses on a high street, it looked at the extent to which business encouraged healthy lifestyles, promoted socialising and wellbeing and allowed greater access to health care and advice. For example leisure centres, health clubs, libraries, pubs and bars scored well, but fast food takeaways, bookmakers and pay day loans scored badly.

Alistair adds: “As it happens I moved up from London just 12 months ago with my young family. We absolutely love Shrewsbury it has a superb town park bordering the river, individual shops, good restaurants and there is lots going on. Out of town there is a diverse range of landscapes within a short distance, from South Shropshire’s Hills to the meres, mosses and woodland walks.

“I am really looking forward to the Move to the Country Show at The Chelsea Old Town Hall, because to talk the talk is just so easy,” adds Alistair. If you would like your property promoting to the London market, call Alistair or Clemmie at Balfours on 01743 353511.
