Pizza Hut

I heard a rumour last night that a sit down Pizza Hut will be occupying the old Dorothy Perkins site in the High Street after refurb.

Hedgehog; central Walton!

Delighted to find a Hedgehog in the garden tonight. Haven’t seen one for years. She comes ‘n goes through the old door cut in the fence for next doors arthritic cat. I remember Chris Packhams advice to give the little guys a gap in the fence to explore other gardens. All I had was water and Chihuahu...

Re: Excel pool. Filthy

Popped in today after avoiding the place for many months. The teaching pool is broken cannot be raised up or down. Apparently for the last 6 weeks. The jacuzzi is out of order. The toilet in the ladies changing room is still out of order. I didn’t check this one with my own eyes. Might go again afte...

Bridge Street Shanley Homes

I see on ‘Rightmove’ that Shanley Homes are advertising the new build apartments for sale in Bridge Street.

Around 400k gets you two bedrooms..and a parking space.

Is anything selling at the moment?

New flats at old dairy site

Anyone else noticed that construction at the old dairy site in the high street has gone into slow-mo?

Except for a couple of blokes sweeping and tidying up down the side nothing meaningful has happened for months.

Carillon connected?

Re: Birdseye Building - SOLD FOR RESIDENTIAL

Short-termism..

Re: Stonegate pubs - charging more for England games beer?

I was at the Regent for a qualifier and a 30p surcharge was levied on all orders. Apparently to pay for the ‘Bouncers’ I vowed not to go back on a match day, the place was rammed and didn’t feel particularly safe. I Certainly wouldn’t take Mrs Davros for the next match on Saturday. As you can imagin...

Bin issues central Walton

Anyone else has problems this week?

Our Monday refuse collection was missed so I reported it on line, chased it up by phone on Thurdsay and still no collection by Saturday morning.
Neighbours had the same.
The lady I spoke to at the Council said we were on the list :?

Re: 12-16 High Street

Interesting to know what sort of restaurant is proposed.

Also, any one tried the new place where the old Curry house was in Church Street?

Mobile Phone use while driving

Preposterous article today in The Daily Mail announcing that because of them and a campaign by the AA the use of Mobiles when driving has plummeted. Laughable, just watch any stream of traffic in Walton and there is an epidemic. I'd say there is more chance of getting hit by some prat texting or up ...
