Relocation Solo To Lakenheath

Jump to last reply

I am a 31 year old single male about to move to Lakenheath in 3 months time. I have taken a civilian contract military position with RAF working with rescue squadron members for physical performance enhancement and injury reduction. I have never been to UK period. I have been to several foreign cities in my current job as a US Navy Afloat Fitness director with in port and deployed Navy ships for almost 4 years now. I have worked with military for the better part of 4 years and college athletics programs for 3 years before that.

I am looking to get full inside scoop from locals like you as to where to live on base or off. Cost of living, major things to be aware of like power adapters, cell service, wifi coverage, credit card use, bring my American car or buy a new one? Places to visit, weather etc......All the things a newcomer should know before coming to town. I have lived in the Midwest USA for 22 years and the Northwest USA for a year as well so I am used to all kinds of weather.

Can someone confirm what I read on a recent article from a poll done in 2015 saying that Cambridge average salary in 2015 was L47k? Is this accurate. My salary offer for this job with full compensation with relocation costs is $68k USD or about L47k if the conversion is right.

Is this a decent income in Lakenheath?

What is the base like, big or small? I work on a US Naval base stateside in California, fairly large, 160 commands, 13,000 service members, 1,600 acres.
