Re: Apps Farm Car Boot

I enjoy the boot sale but now only go as a potential buyer. As a seller I got fed up almost giving stuff away and still arguing over 20p with some stranger. The boot sale attracts all sorts from far and wide as you will find out. On a warm/dry morning it gets very busy so get there early, some times...

Re: Moving to the area

Plenty going on, Walton regatta takes place next month, there is also a heritage day during summer j...

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

All looking very nice.

Are all the residents enjoying and looking forward to the transformation. Now that the result can be seen on the first block. I know there had been some push back?

Silver Bracelet found

I know this sounds improbable but shortly after the ring incident, I found a bracelet and handed it in to staff at M&S in Walton (On-Thames) :wink:

Again, I won’t go into descriptions but the owner would want it back I’m sure.

Yes there was a third find but that was in Guildford :)

Ring Found Xcel

I would have posted earlier but the site was down. I found a ring recently and handed it into staff at the Xcel. There was no paper record of a loss but anecdotal info that someone had been asking. In fact staff didn’t even want to know my details, however I shot off an e-mail to management when I g...

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

I think it’s outrageous that residents have to pay extra to use the new steam room and sauna up on the roof of the three main blocks.

How can that be fair?

Re: Lidl Opens 28th Feb

The absence of any real town on the door step it seems helps car park/customer rotation.

The old Aldi in Walton gave 1hour 45mins parking time which encouraged customers to wonder off for coffee or what ever around the town.

Re: Lidl Opens 28th Feb

Mrs Davros and I went for a look at 9.30 this morning.

Lovely big impressive store. Super on site bakery too.

Much prefer it to Samesburys. The prices too :wink:
