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 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.

You are quite right Monty, Maidenhead is a shadow of its former self and you only have to look at the depressed expressions on the faces of the shoppers that there are to see they are only there because they have to be.

Just a bit to add to the rant. Those dreadful terraced houses on the Skindles site Tiddly little garden, my garden is twice the size of that and they are selling for nearly 1,000.000 pounds'. Leaves you speechless.

Yes I agree Monty as  long as they don't turn their eyes northward. It seems they have poor memories or poor record keeping that in 1947 the whole bottom floor of Skindles, better known as "Swindles!" was flooded Thank God a lot of Cookham is in a flood plain area. Remember the floods of the 1800's and 1947 will reoccur again, and there is no way of preventing it.

Yes, I'm back from my Maori Christmas on the island of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Which you can find on Google Earth and punch in Rarotonga.

James, never mind the 1800s and 1947, the last flood in Cookham (2014 if my memory is right) saw the army being called in to assist, and before you ask it was because it almost reached 1947 levels and if it hadn't finally stopped raining, the Environment Agency expected the level to go even higher than in that year.  Lots of people had to move out of their homes and there were mobile toilets and showers provided in some parts for use by resident who could stay but could not use their normal facilities.
