Bingham is a small but growing city with a current population of about 9000. Nottingham is approximately nine miles to the west and since most people in Bingham commute to Nottingham for work, it is known as a Dormitory Town of Nottingham. Commuters and shoppers find the frequent departures and arrivals of the Trent Barton buses to and from Nottingham convenient for getting where they need to go. Many thriving businesses are also found in Bingham and the town centre is quite busy. Every third Saturday will find the farmer’s market in full swing in the Market Place while another market is held every Thursday.
Families will find plenty to do with a swimming pool and sports facilities available at the Bingham Leisure Centre, which is located on the grounds of the Toot Hill School. When parents want to spend some time without the kids and enjoy the company of other adults, there are six public houses from which to choose. Sports fans and athletes will have no shortage of choice with such clubs as the Bingham Rugby Club, Bingham Cricket Club, the British Canoe Union and many more. With affordable housing, great schools and child care options along with low crime, it is no wonder that Bingham had the honor of being named as England and Wales best town for families in November of 2013.
If you are thinking of buying or renting one of the new homes available in Bingham, something you might want to consider doing to make it a little easier to feel right at home quicker is have the new carpet professionally cleaned. Though the carpet is brand new, it could be full of dust and dirt left over from construction as well as odor causing chemicals from the carpet’s manufacture. Many people don’t think of it for a newly built house but having the carpet cleaned before moving in could be a wise thing to do if you or someone in the family has allergies or chemical sensitivities. Calling Brenton Carpet Care to handle your Bingham carpet cleaning for you using green cleaning products–it just makes good sense.
