The 'eyesore'

I think I once christened it that, the place that is next to Scarlet & Violet and I think was once a British Legion club. Anyway there's a lot of building work going on now. Did we decide what it is to be - another estate agent?

New charity shop, and ...

I walked past the new charity shop next door to The Chamberlayne pub (ex Their nibs) - it opens on Monday 15th. Looks a little sparse at the moment - but I assume that will change as it builds momentum. I know I could do with a new tennis racquet for £10!

I also noticed work has started on another shop closer to the station between the butchers and the kitchen shop - anybody know what that's going to be?

I hope this is a good sign - vacant shops being populated. Fingers crossed no more estate agents (after Greene & co.)

Also, just heard that The Diner is to be 'Madame Gautier Traiteur & Bistro' - my French isn't great but wikipedia suggest Traiteur effectively means 'delicatessen'.

Pomelo has a new name

I noticed today the Chinese restaurant on Chamberlayne Road, Pomelo, has a new name (and looks a bit different). Is that a recent thing or am I telling you things that happened six months ago?
