Week-old news

It must be at least a week since Mimi Milan opened in Grace Reynolds Walk;  but this is the first time we’ve shown the new fashion shop.  Let’s hope it thrives.

  1. Can anyone explain why the UK is so obsessed with pay carparking..everywhere. Here down in SW France towns, beaches,lakesides dont do it..the amenities often available are a class above and there is no litter.
    Even with less population to tax they manage it well. Maybe SHBC should twin their Top100 town with some in Europe and learn a thing or 100? Whoops I forgot the local population voted for isolationismand put their faith in Johnson Fox Davis and Gove…big mistake.
    Pretty sure Mimi Milan would have a better future if Camberley was a better run town with some visionary ideas about accesibility.

  2. Redsnapper, I disagree somewhat. The borough council doesn’t lack vision – it’s even produced a vision document and video, as you undoubtedly know. What I believe it lacks is adequate practical understanding or the ability (and, in some cases, I suspect the commitment) to deliver what it promises. So, after years – decades – of unfulfilled promises, the council’s plans for Camberley lack any credibility. I actually don’t care – in principle – about the cost of car parking. I do care that the subsequent ‘reward’ justifies the cost. But this equation is put in jeopardy as soon as anyone leaves Main Square car park by the main stairs; it’s a squalid experience that’s best avoided. The council can’t blame anyone else for this; they’ve always owned the building.

    (As far as litter in the town centre is concerned, the fault, of course, lies with those using the town. The borough council does a good job of cleaning up after them.)
