Very useful numbers
We are looking into moving to Hamilton very soon
Coming from London one of the most expensive city in the word
It's quite interesting these numbers after converting to £ are very close to London's price almost London is cheaper
It would be really helpful and great if someone could proof me wrong !!
Otherwise we have to reconsider our choice we are looking forward to it
Thanks for sharing your experince

With the contiuous complaints of the price of milk which is a great food source and has many added costs in production. When I had to buy a bottle of water recently (which has very little production costs ) I was suprised to find the cost of water compareable to milk. Why is this?
