    There are some beautiful examples in England where the places I went in Surrey and Reading, have the most natural, and wide open spaces, where you can run and ride your bike, sit by a river or a small dam, all open to everybody, but in a limited space and odd spaces are used. One of these places is Woodley Village. It has two lines of shops, Frozen foods, a vegetable grocer, a dairy shop, Boots(something like the things you buy at a chemist, some other shops(all the basics) and a Bank, home affairs, a doctor, clinic, like facillity.( This is according to their health system), onto a beautiful Green, with a small theatre at one end.(This is really like a stage that children and adults can practise in and put on a show, with everybody out on the grass watching. All the important notices like, "it is time to hand in your personal income tax or vaccinations, etc are posted at the one end in the open, on a notice board.
