Some nice carpet in the communal areas and a concierge in each block and presto, a little bit of Knightsbridge in Walton :wink:

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

Well done for getting across the threshold. When we tried at about 11am we couldn’t get near the place. Traffic queues back to

Esher and the roundabout was solid. Came home, went to M&S

Lidl Opens 28th Feb

Not strictly a Walton issue but it’s on the doorstep and might effect shopper habits and retailers here. Lidl opens on 28th February in Hersham. 8am it’s on the opposite side of the Barleymow roundabout from the VW dealer. Will it fill the void created since Aldi were turfed out of Walton. How many ...

Re: 12-16 High Street

‘Car Club membership’. What a brilliant idea. Maybe I’ll put it forward as an idea to my neighbours.

We can all share a couple of electric motors.

Has Mickey Mouse had a hand in all this?

Re: 12-16 High Street

According to the Conservative news sheet that just dropped through our door. Application is in for 32 flats on this site with just 10 car park spaces.

Should be fun.

Mother Care aka Costa Coffee

Who needs a child outfitters and equipment shop when we have Costa.

Fancy a buggy or new nappy bag, just pop to Costa Coffee. Identify the stroller; Bugaboo, Silver Cross, Babiie Billie, UPPAbaby, Babyzen etc of your choice or other child related apparatus and order it on line.

Cushty :wink:

Well that was a productive discussion to start the new year. Just what this forum needed.

I’ve got a neighbour. The only time I see him is when he wants something.

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

Nice to see the refurbishment going on a pace in at the first block. All looks very promising driving past the site. I see one of the apartments is up for sale for 189k. I wonder if that includes the price of the refurb or not. Got to be a bargain compared to some of the children’s shoe box size pla...
