    Really. Thinking about the centre, wasn't it Westfield? And surprised it's not started yet. Was in st George's walk a while back :facepalm:

    You going? I'm on my summer holiday in Lanzarote or I would have been down for this. A wee bit gutted to miss it but it is very here

    I predict this bold move will not in fact lead the regeneration of Croydon.

    Just wondering. If Croydon really has ambitions, couldn't the whitgift centre come down and one massive new shopping centre be built combining Westfield, going to George st, dingwall road and west Croydon bus and rail stations?

    It would make sense. Croydon would become a bit of a destination. Who would go to Croydon to shop now when you have Westfield's at Shepherds Bush and Stratford and the likes of Gun Wharf quay's. Sad, but it's whats needed.

    Matthew's Yard are appealing for help against developers who apparently want to turn the site into apartments.

    Croydon has a shit load of empty apartments already.

    Here's the petition to get Mayor Khan involved if anyone wants to take a look.

    Most of South London aren't gonna bother going all the way to Shepherds Bush or Stratford to go shopping. And many people (myself included) aren't fans of big, shiny, new shopping centres.

    Why should the predominate theme of Croydon be shopping?
    It wont work anyway. Centrale has never been fully let. Poundworld are an anchor store in the High Street and the Whitgift Centre is following St. Georges Walk down the shitter.
    John Lewis are not coming and neither is money to build a new Westgate.

    Croydon will soon survive on growing and selling green.

    This fun article was written last year (before the opening of the Portland Arms, unfortunately) about the bit of Croydon where I live.

    I went past this yesterday, it's looking good and I think it's a lovely concept. I'm not necessarily their target market, as 3 year old daughter means spare time is limited so I can't see my wife and I going out to play board games right now (unless they cater to families as well?) but I hope it's successful.

    I like the concept, but I don't know if i would go to a cafe with friends to play board games.

    I shall have to see if I can find some friends to try it with :)

    Maybe we could do an urban gathering there, particularly if it is open in the evenings.
