A survey by comparethemarket.com has identified Rushcliffe as the East Midlands’ most popular place to be married with children. The survey looked at the marital statuses of over 10 million people across the region – and Rushcliffe came out on top with 19.8% of residents being married with kids.
The result is no doubt strongly linked to the wide range of family-friendly facilities on offer in the borough, including Rushcliffe Country Park, an abundance of smaller local parks and open spaces, and fantastic sports and leisure facilities. Our local schools are also well-known for providing some of the highest educational standards in the East Midlands.
Commenting on the findings to the Nottingham Post, our local MP Ruth Edwards, said: “This research confirms what everyone who lives here already knows; Rushcliffe is the most fantastic place to live or work and I am delighted to see us also take the crown as most family-friendly.
“Rushcliffe is great for people of all ages, we have a strong community spirit and look out for each other. I’m so proud to represent somewhere which has pulled together in the way Rushcliffe has; first in response to flooding and now in helping the most vulnerable through coronavirus.”
