Memories To Treasure



Some time ago I reported on plans to convert 'Treasure Trove' (a.k.a. the Betty Boop shop) on Central Road into a Persian restaurant.

The planning application was duly turned down by Sutton Council - mainly due to the excessive number of covers that the restaurant would contain and fears over disturbance to local residents.

Now it seems that Betty Boop may be about to bow out of Worcester Park completely, as 'Closing Down Sale' signs are plastered all over Treasure Trove.

It may, however, be a little too soon to write the obituary of this uniquely bizarre outlet - if my memory serves me correctly, Treasure Trove has been 'closing down' on at least one occasion in the past.

Could Betty Boop really be packing her bags and leaving town? Only time will tell.
