    I love Walton, it is not a town full of “chavs”. The high percentage of residents are of retirement age.The crime rate is relatively low and this is helped by the presence of P.C.S.O’s around the town.It is stuck in a time warp, but this only adds to its quaintness. Realistically, we could do with more shops, the current shops being charity and food shops. It would benefit from a retail store similar to Peac**ks, and perhaps even a bank like in days gone by. All in all, it is a nice quiet place to live, and I definitely feel safe living here, having moved to here from North London 6 years ago.
