At last, we know who is coming!
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.
