Visited Feltham Town centre & I can conclude what an impressive regeneration and also with exception of the recent closure of the Peacocks store very few retail voids in the High Street.
However having 4 supermarkets located in the town centre with an Asda, Tesco, Aldi & Lidl will this be sustainable?

Our third curry club lunch was a huge success with 4 new comers and truly relaxing environment @ Roshnis, Staines. Please reserve a place for the next lunch on Wednesday 25th April 2012 @ 1pm by logging onto

Lloyds Bank are in fact willing to lend to small business despite the misleading media and press! I have now met local managers from all the 4 main high street banks and they all have different lending criteria and are not opposed to property lending but of course at higher LTV ratios.

Still searching both commercial & residential sites.

Secured a new retail agency instruction with letting of 302-304 High Street, Slough.
