The next station strop....

A big thumbs up to South West Trains who managed to bring a rare smile to the faces of rush-hour commuters at Worcester Park Station this morning with their refreshingly honest explanation of why the ticket office window was closed...

Gone James

It's sad to see the demise of John James Gardening - one by one the independent stores that have helped Worcester Park retain it's character are dropping like flies, and Worcester Park now only has one resident retail parrot.

Perhaps we can all make an extra effort to support the ones that remain - whilst they still remain.

On which note, I am dying to support the new sushi place that's 'Opening Soon' in Windsor Road (near the Library), but it has been 'Opening Soon' for quite a few months now - and they've even managed to change the name of the takeaway once already.

Jewellery Found Dumped In Worcester Park

Police are appealing for information to trace the owners of these items of jewellery, which were found discarded on a grass verge in Grandison Road, Worcester Park.

The jewellery includes a distinctive silver locket with a photograph of a man and woman and a number of pewter Celtic crosses and chains from St Justin, Cornwall.

These items were found with a pillow case, which are often used by burglars to carry items away from the scene of a crime. The pillow case was blue.

The items were found by a local resident and reported to police on Wednesday 29th August.

PCSO Gary Weaving, of Worcester Park Safer Neighbourhoods Team, believes these items may have been thrown away by burglars who may have been sorting through their burglary haul whilst sitting in a car parked in the street.

 He believes the items may have come from one or more burglaries in Sutton or surrounding areas like Epsom, Merton or Kingston. “This jewellery may have huge sentimental value for someone and we are keen to find the rightful owners,” he said.

If you recognise any items or have information that could help police, PCSO Weaving can be contacted at Worcester Park SNT on 020 8649 3590. Email:
