Strippers out in force in Pembroke Broadway

Yes, it’s true!

‘Soft-stripping’ – the removal of fixtures and fittings from the former Holiday Autos building has started.  Our spies tell us that this will take about four weeks, after which demolition will start in earnest.  Apparently, construction of the new care home on the site is scheduled to start in September.

One of the first indications that something was happening was the removal of the Holiday Autos sign on the front boundary wall of the building.  How many people remember that Systems Designers used to occupy the building? – not us, that’s for sure.
