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'.

That looks great - they have a shop in Barnes already, and attend numerous Farmers Markets.

Looks good - should give Minkies a bit of stiff competition!

Is the Diner really closing down and being replaced by this deli, do you know when?

Not known when, but the Diner's days are numbered. Realistic estimate is a couple of months before the Deli place opens in its doors.

Can't imagine poncey French food doing well round here. Not great for kids. A good Italian would be another matter.
