The Maidenhead I grew up in has gone andI feel sad about this, what is going up in its place has no character and no style. I only go into Maidenhead to go to go to the bank and come out as quickly as possible. If I need a town with SHOPS in it I go to Marlow. There must be a lot of people of my age 70 plus, who can remember when Maidenhead was a busy town with loads of shops two cinemas a large bus station with buses that actually ran all evening. The office blocks that have been built are so ugly. By the time the destruction is complete I will have shuffled of this mortal coil.

I'm not one to defend GWR but I completely disagree, the service so much better than last year. There are now several peak hour trains from Cookham to Paddington that take 34 mins and the same on the return in the evening. The Electrostar trains from Maidenhead are a world ahead of the old diesel trains and there are generally plenty of seats. There have been a couple of small delays, short formed trains and an evening cancellation (I was told signal failure) but apart from that my commute has vastly improved.

2018 will be an exciting year for Maidenhead town centre with regeneration plans progressing and new developments starting. This month will see the start of Phase 3 of the Chapel Arches development in the town with the demolition of the Colonnade and wing of Hines Meadow car park to make way for the new development. There are also two public consultation events taking place for the York Road site and the Landing ahead of planning applications being submitted in the Spring.

The grammar is pretty bad which is a bit of a giveaway.

Presumably less so when they tried it with Lidl last year  🤣

A new Waitrose voucher scam is doing the rounds on WhatsApp, police are warning.

The scam message claims to offer a free £250 gift voucher to anyone, inviting people to follow a link and fill out a form in order to claim theirs.

The link is designed to look like it’ll take you to the Waitrose website, but actually takes you to one hosted by criminals with the aim of harvesting your personal information.

The grammar is pretty bad which is a bit of a giveaway.

Were there not enough entries then? To be honest I think it's a bit of a waste of time. The kind of people wrecking Cookham with the kind of building we're currently seeing going up are probably not the slightest bit interested in getting any kind of award, any more than they are interested in what was a cosy village.

It's just Dudley desperately seeking his 15 minutes of "fame" using "the wedding" to further his dark side motivations.

Just don't vote for him or his cronies at the next Borough election ...
... unless you, as a citizen of this great Borough, seek yet another "McMafia" style running of the RBWM for the next five years.

Sure, the homeless are a "problem", but they are human beings, and cajoaling the police into flicking them off the street using
an ancient 1820's law is certainly not the way to go about things.

I am glad that Theresa May flicked Dudley around the ears for his misguided outburst.
