    I like living in Chorlton because there are lots of schools to learn (they also keep you safe,) there are supermarkets to get your food, when you are at school your mums and dads go to work and there are roads to get you where you need to be.

    because if you have a dog you can walk it in the meodows(I don’t know if it’s spelt right),you can buy food from all of the supermarkets there,there’s a junior football team and there is’nt very busy roads.
