At last, we know who is com­ing!

The Wokingham Paper - - VIEWPOINTS -

SO, THE first two ar­rivals for Peach Place are not char­ity shops or nail bars as some had wor­ried about, but ac­tual food stores.

Gail’s Bak­ery and Cook! will both be en­hance­ments to our street scene and add a pos­i­tive en­hance­ment to the town cen­tre.

The news comes as we learn that Wood­ley is also see­ing a new newsagent ar­rive and Greggs has ex­panded into the for­mer Chap­ter One book­shop site.

These are good news sto­ries, es­pe­cially when the High Street is strug­gling na­tion­ally.

There are more names to be an­nounced for Peach Place and they will be ar­riv­ing thick and fast over the com­ing weeks.

Fi­nally, as each one is re­vealed, we will start to see what the new town cen­tre will be like.

But the chal­lenge to us all re­mains sim­ply this: get into Wood­ley, Wok­ing­ham, Twyford and sup­port our lo­cal busi­nesses now. Our shop­ping of­fer is unique and dif­fer­ent. It de­serves our sup­port – we’d miss it if it was lost for­ever.
