There has been quite a revolution in the shopping experience available around where I live – my golly it needed it, but this is something else1 after much promising by the local MP and council leaders, a huge wetland area, formerly busy and grimygravel extractio pits, have been totally redeveloped. What we have now is an amazing combination of te top ladies’ and gents’ clothing stores – small but functional and totally in keeping with the changing shopping habits of the nation. There are also outdoor pursuit stores selling clothing, camping and walking gear – an adventurer’s paradise. Also in the specially designed eatery area are a wide selection of restaurants, cafes and pizza parlours, all overlooking the fantastic piece de resistance . . . . . the nature reserve section. It’s a life enhancing and mood boosting experience and you can only feel much happier after a visit – surely that’s the aim of the game!
