"Good for a while....."

Bridgetown is a very pretty part of the world to live and is safe to raise a family. Basic services are available, however are costly and limited in supply. In particular grocery shopping is shockingly expensive and unaffordable. There is no public transport, no high school beyond year 10, no access to further education and the job situation is appalling. If a job is attained, expect it to be paid substantially less what would be received in the city. The town survives on outside people coming to Bridgetown for the idyllic lifestyle and then selling up property a few years later at substantial loss. Eating out has improved greatly in recent times and there is good access to "country pursuits". Medical practitioners here are incompetent. People are generally pretty good to one another and there is good community spirit. This is a good place for retireess only.
