A survey has named the market town of Yarm on Teesside as one of the best twenty towns in England and Wales to raise a family. The study by an investment company looked at factors including the quality of schools, affordability of living and childcare provision.
Yarm emerged amongst 19 other top towns, the vast majority of which were based in the South East and South West of the country. The report named Wokingham in Berkshire as the best town overall in which to raise children.
