Well the first house to be sold has been bought by two close friends of ours - a primary teacher and a writer, both long term Avebury lovers.

Be nice to the, if you meet them - whatever you think of the development - I am sure they never realised what a hornets nest they were getting into.

As for me I thought the garage awful and given a few seasons I am sure the newness of these houses will mellow.

I wish your friends well in their new homes - there is a community in Avebury which I'm sure they'll get to know, shame no village school anymore though. I was a regular attendee at the Avebury Open Mic (in the village hall) over the last 2 years which was a great way of bringing local people together. The couple who organised it have now moved away but no reason why your friends couldn't get involved - local musicians turned up regularly as did some musicians who liked it so much they drove down regularly from London to participate.

PS: I hasten to add I don't live in Avebury myself.
