A new year… and it’s good to report that our traders are continuing to keep going in spite of much competition from many fronts. Please help them as much as possible by visiting the shops and buying local.
We welcome Mobility Services, which has opened on the corner of Sherwood Avenue and the High Street, formerly occupied by an estate agent. We wish them success.
Watch out for Ollie Polly cafe which should be opening soon, in what was formerly a DIY store (25 High Street). We wish the owner every success with this new venture.
Some of you will have spotted a new business front on Red Lodge Road – the Railway Grill -which, along with the recent refurbishment of the area, is adding a bright, fresh look to the shop frontages.
You may also have noticed new signage for the Leisure Centre. While the Leisure Centre building will eventually be replaced, it is sensible to make the best of the current facilities and encourage customers to stay and use them.
Carrying on quietly in the background is our library which provides exciting and innovative activities for children of varying ages, as well as lectures and courses for adults. Look on-line or call in to find out what is happening – friendly staff members are always available with advice and support.
Features about Rouse Bathrooms and Franco’s Shoes are to be included in our Spring Newsletter which will be distributed to WWRA members during March. The intention of such features is to provide some interesting background to businesses in and around the High Street.
