    Hi everybody! I have just move to Catterick through work and the accomodation I am living in now is both boring and extremely basic. What I am getting at is... does anybody have a flat to rent? Or even a roommate wanted? It is not desperate but something i need to start looking at!

    My max spend would only be 300 per month. The cheaper: the better.

    Thanks in advance,

    Best of luck with your search, Perry - when I moved down to London, the band was accommodated in the old Wellington Barracks, before it was rebuilt: the place was literally falling down around us. The only good things were that they paid us a reasonable living-out allowance to buy our own meals, and the place was in such a state we didn't have to do any cleaning :eek:

    haha! That makes my accommodation sound fantastic! :(

    I am more concerned of the fact that I am the only one in the band to live-in and I am the first to live-in in 7 years! It is far too boring for me. I have to travel across the garrison to the infantry training camp and fight my way through squaddies to get to the learning center and pray for a free internet terminal! And I am severely limited to the sites I can view. I have no washing machine either. haha. Things are not looking too good for me! At the moment I would willingly share a room with a smelly, obese herione addict than live where I do now. I am pulling my hair out!

    On the plus side: I have a 4-man room, all to myself.

    Anyway - enough of me moaning. I expect to be flooded with posts, P.M's, text messages saying "you can live in my shed for 10 pounds a week"

    Does this mean you are playing for the Heavy Cavalry and Tankie Band?

    My first posting was in Catterick in 1875, when we were RAC training regiment. I was in the 5th Inniskilling Dragoon Guards Band. We had a great time, but Catterick is a lonesome place!

    get into Darlo maybe, that might be better. Or, the lovely Richmond.

    Kings head used to have the ugliest barmaid in the world bye the way!

    Good luck and enjoy your carreer.

    If you buy the local paper you should find some listings in there for accommodation. Also try the Northern Echo.
