Hello - welcome to Alma Grove
, I live there too - have done for nearly two years now.
Are you the Italian chap my wife and I spoke to last weekend, who was talking about moving to the area and asking our opinions etc. ??
Anyway, it is a lovely road to live in and I'm sure you'll like it there - it is such a peaceful road and is convenient for loads of things.
Supermarkets - Tescos on Old Kent Road
(OKR) is the most convenient but also the worst. It's just not a great supermarket for a big shop and it is often chaos in there. The larger Tescos up by Canada Water tube is much better and about twice the size - they also have self-service check-outs which are great.The ASDA on OKR is good - large and spacious with nice staff but I don't like ASDA's food range but this is probably because I'm a bit of a food snob.
Gym - I use the Seven Islands leisure centre which is a five mins drive from Alma Grove
, or about a 10 min run. It's not the most modern leisure centre but it has everything you need, including anice 33M pool. It costs us £33 per month incluing all swimming and all fitness clases.
Cinema - we go in to the West End to be honest on the number 1 bus, that goes from the end of Alma Grove
directly to Totenham Court Road and it takes about 20 mins.
Hope this helps.
