Rushcliffe has been ranked the
fifth-best rural place to live in the UK in a nationwide survey.
The Halifax Rural Areas Quality of
Life Survey is an annual study that ranks places based on a variety of factors.
Health, employment, housing, crime
rate, happiness of residents and even weather are all taken into account.
Rutland, which is also in the East
Midlands, topped the list, with the local population enjoying high levels of
health and fitness.
Rushcliffe continues to be held in
high regard having been named 8th best place to live in the UK overall in a
survey by Halifax in late 2014.
