Living in Frimley: the local area guide

The far west of Surrey is home to the not-so-small town of Frimley. Nestled on the edge of the border with Hampshire, Frimley has existed for over 1,300 years, with historical documents first mentioning it as a farming village in 673. Later years saw the town become an important stop on the London to Portsmouth coach route, and today sees it as the headquarters of several multinationals.

It’s a pretty town, known for the numerous lakes in the region, as well as, portions of the Basingstoke canal. The waterway is one of England’s finest, famed for its abundant wildlife and popular with tourists and locals alike, particularly with its traditional narrowboat tours. Frimley Lodge Park is also rather popular, with its canal walks, exquisite protected forestry, parklands, and sports facilities. Weekends see the park filled with families, taking advantage of rare incidences of good British weather and the park’s excellent opportunities for play and sport.

Frimley Park hospital is an extensive medical centre, with maternity and surgical facilities, whilst also serving as one of the five Ministry of Defence hospitals, thus, much of its staff are, in fact, serving members of the British Military medical staff. Frimley Business Park hosts various international corporations, as does Frimley at large, with a notable example being the Siemens mobile headquarters situated in the town. A cadet training centre is also found near Frimley and has existed for several decades now.

Demographics

The average resident of Frimley is forty years old, the precise national average, whilst 51% of the population are female. Just under four out of every five residents is of white, English descent. The rest are typically from other British regions or are foreign born, with the majority having come from India or the Philippines.

Just over a third of all residents are working within a professional or technical capacity, many of them at the Business Park for businesses such as Genesys Communication or Novartis Pharmaceuticals. 63% of residents describe themselves as being Christian, whilst 53% of residents are married.

Education

Several top-notch primary schools can be found in the town, including The Grove Primary School and the Lakeside Primary School, both of which accept children of ages 5-12. Ravenscote Junior School only accepts children for the latter part of their primary education, but it is extremely well regarded and has been awarded an ‘Outstanding’ recommendation from Ofsted.

Kings International College is available for secondary education, though pupils must transfer to Tomlinscote School, an academy and 6th form college, if they wish to further their education. Reading University and the stunning Royal Holloway University are both within a forty-minute commute and, whilst not as close as they might be, are extremely well-regarded Universities.

Transport

As a regional hub, the town is quite well off when it comes to transport. As you would expect, taxi and bus services run effectively and efficiently, connecting to nearby towns. Some services run to larger destinations such as Reading or London. The Frimley Railway Station typically offers services to Ascot and Guildford, however, some trains also go to Reading and London. The motorway system is well developed, with the A331 Blackwater Valley road connecting to the town the M3 motorway.

Amenities and shopping

Frimley is currently undergoing a revitalisation project in its main shopping district, with the dual goals of making it prettier whilst adding more space for shops. As it stands, there are several supermarkets in Frimley, its largest being a Waitrose. There are also small clothing stores, several restaurants, banks and a hospital.

Nearby Camberley, as a larger town, does make itself home to somewhat better shopping. The Mall shopping centre has numerous large retail stores and some high fashion outlets. Additionally, there is a High Street occupied with bars, clubs and other boutiques. The town also hosts a Vue cinema, as well as some leisure centres.
