So this is Christmas!



Being observant erudite blog readers, you have no doubt already spotted posters appearing in shop windows up and down Central Road promoting the Worcester Park Trader's Association 'Christmas Late Night' which takes place on Friday 28th November from 6pm.

And as you all have such a keen eye for detail, you no doubt spottted The Brinkley Road Blog and The Worcester Park Blog logos at the bottom of these posters? Yes, of course you did.

It's all because in the true spirit of the festive season myself and The Brinkster are setting aside our online blogging rivalry to bring you one simple and unified message: support your local retailers this Christmas.

In the weeks running up to Christmas, we'll be bringing you a flavour of what Worcester Park retailers can help ease the stress of your Christmas shopping.

In the meantime, put Friday 28th November in your diairies. From 6pm, Central Road will be lined with festive stalls, funfair rides and awash with bands and entertainment for all the family. Many shops in Central Road will be opening late into the evening to allow you to do a spot of late-night shopping Worcester Park style.

Father Christmas himself will be there to kick off the proceedings. Hope to see you there!

w pk is becoming a nonsense bring back the good old days of the 70,s and 80,s good pubs clubs supermarkets people kids with respect greenspace schools with grounds people with conciences petrol stations paperbooths and best of all smarts and jolleys sweetshops. now we have empty shops worn out pubs useless supermarkets miles for petrol and unruly children... now is this a sign of the times or has worcester park bourne the brunt for greed and destruction of in my opinion the outright greed of the tory party in ca-hoots with the new lib dem of their time and all councilers who lined their pockets to self destruct an absolutly thriveing wpk and leave with the shell this once great town once was

Okay chaps and chapesses, any chance we could stop knocking WP for a week or so? Okay its not my fave place that I've lived in or would choose to live in if I won the Lottery BUT it is a pretty okay place. It is only an opinion but it has to be better than North Cheam and Morden at least shopwise. So what if there are a few empty shops, what town doesn't have them? And yes I wouldn't mind M & S back so I can treat myself once a year or so but as I've said in a previous e-mail months ago it has great restaurants/butcher/baker/fruit shop etc and I'll only complain when McD get in, or a gambling shop, or even worse a Walkabout!

jacey you are probably the most sensible girl/woman in w pk i was only putting what i thought to be an honest oppinion. i did not know hat by doing so i would be ridiculed for my grammer punctiation:check spelling:for my troubles. as for the half wit calling out freak under an anon synom, well need i say more.

Jacey said...

st phillip - well thank you kind sir, i'm a middle aged woman and have been here since 1993. Yes I know it's my opinion against the world and I know it shouldn't be taken too seriously but I just get a wee bit fed up people knocking WP. We could all live somewhere better/worse to be honest. As for your grammar I'm not sure this is a site for people to correct that either, I tend to write a lot in lower case if I'm mailing friends, doesn't mean I'm fick! Just don't anyone try text speak as you'll all lose me - I don't have a mobile! Some people need to lighten up a bit, after all Christmas is on the way and it's Goodwill to all men and women.

st phillip alleyer said...

well jacey they say great minds think alike,and who am i to argue with them; and yes it is nearly crimbo and a bit of goodwill wont hurt anyone. i was born in worcester park in the sixties and have lived in w pk for all my life apart from 3 years overseas and when i stumbled upon this blog i wasnt doing so to knock worcesrer park i love it what i was pointing out was the facts of over dwellings, by this i mean the populous has incresed rapidly with detriment to schools and grounds i.e cheam common green lane dorchester then the old jack brabham garage the old forge now an empty m&s just reminicing the glory days of worcester park when you couldnt get a empty shop even in lesser times for toffee. not to mention coombleys who used to store all the seasonal decorations and believe you me they were a sight to behold for such a small town and would give the much bigger town of sutton and others a good run for their money

Columbo Central said...

There are a lot of worse places to live than Worcester Park.Its only the people in the place that can really make it a nice place to live, so if everyone stops slagging it off and actually starts to have more of a community spirt about the place then we can all live happily ever after.....lol :) and no betting shops... and no more pubs..please :(.

st phillip alleyer said...

my sentiments entirely coloumbo pull together help one and other;find out where your kids are who there hanging round with are they being nusiances;can i help these people can i employ someone locally;offer apprentiships;clean my car paint my house like the old days. not slagging off particular roads or take aways;remember when k f c first come here in the 70s, i do;and the kebab of the 80s;noa that was the place to hang out for kids but very rarely there was trouble save for poor old kid who died over the road; but the reason they all used to hang around there was lack of activities to do once you had become a teenager nothing to do;but when the dorris venner was working you could go to discos there trampolining weightlifting pool candlemaking football,basketball and a lot more is it a sign of the times,or the selfish greed of new,and old inhabitants of w pk which has become me me me eat some food me me me slag someone off,mainly the so called hornets nest browning avenue: im willing to state that probably doublefold there have been more fraudsters murders and general non-entities gone to jail in other roads around cental roads and spur offs than poor old browning not to mention having to wake up to the back drop of balamory every morning

The Brinkster said...

>> i could take you to wonderland
As long as Michael Jackson's left the building!!

Alice said...

I live next to wonderland, the weirdest place I've ever seen. Big colourful houses, that seem to be uninhabited, no sign of life whatsoever. I think they must have followed the 'drink me' instructions a little too greedily as they've not only shrunk, they are just not there in any sense.
