Joanna Wake, who's heavily involved in activities in Stockton, says the area being named the 6th best to live in England and Wales is something people should be proud of:
After Stockton-on-Tees came 6th in a list of 'best places to live in England and Wales' (The Telegraph), Joanna Wake, from Stockton's Town Team, gave her reaction:
In a report, Stockton-on-Tees has been named the 6th best place to live in England and Wales. According to The Telegraph, Stockton-on-Tees is overall better than Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire.
The list is based on average weekly incomes, crime rates, health, home ownership, and economic activity.
Nowhere in London made the top 10, due to low levels of home ownership and high crime. However, in the North East Northumberland came 4th and Stockton-on-Tees ranked 6th.
