Re: Old Birds Eye site -- work in progress?

Whilst they still have to talk to Network Rail this project looks set to go soon. Part of the Birdseye's Car Park was sold to British Rail in the 70's when the Birdseye extension was built as Birdseye did not require it - it is now part of the Station Car park. So Network Rail should not have any ch...

Re: Old Birds Eye site -- work in progress?

"The glass alone in this building must be worth a fortune" Oatlands Glass was a very small emerging company in the 1960's, Birdseye went to them and said if you supply us with glass at the right price we will give you an exclusive contract! This is how Oatlands Glass got such a good start when they ...

Re: Aldi coming back

For interest for Walton on Thames (hopefully will improve the Town Centre): Business ratepayers in Walton-on-Thames are to be balloted over a proposal to turn the town centre into a Business Improvement District. A Business Improvement District is funded by business ratepayers who pay a 1-1.5% levy ...

Re: Debenhams to close

They are also closing the big Staines branch so unfortunately there will be no Debenhams near Walton on Thames! "Should we just accept some of the High Street will become residential?" The town planners ought to consider going back to the original Walton on Thames where there were only retail shops ...

Re: Elmbridge Local Elections

On the other hand I think Raab should be deselected for failing to represent his constituents, and I don't want to give any indication to central Conservative party that I think they are doing a good job in any way, shape or form. Total agreement with your statement - though I can not say the the pe...
