I call myself a Londoner but really, I live in a village: Forest Hill, SE23. My kids went to the village primary school, I meet my friends in the village cafes (or pubs, of an evening), and the pound-a-bowl fruit and veg man often gives me a free punnet of something as I’m a regular. One of the best things about my village is how easy it is to get to the rest of London—but really Forest Hill has almost everything I need.
