The centre of Thornton Heath from the beloved Clocktower to the station is mostly a mess. You sit there minting it from our daily needs but what are you contributing? The flower beds are trashed, the pavements cheaply tarmaced and nasty – why cannot you contribute some cheer – some quality, even, to our lives in exchange for all the custom we pour in your direction. Tesco do you care about life outside your store?
I wrote to the local manager about the flower beds but s/he blamed the Council and said they were responsible. But surely you could cut a deal? C’mon Tesco, you fat cat, it makes business sense, you know it does. Don’t be mean and spite our faces.
To top it all you could not even clear the snow, which soon became slush and ice, from your wide shop frontage during the recent big freeze. Shame on you! How many old people slipped over and broke bones whilst struggling with your shopping the Mayday only knows.
Get you civic finger out Tesco (and Croydon Council) let’s have a chip of your millions for the centre of Thornton Heath. If you want the youth to have some civic pride give us literal grounds for it.
And Barclays and Wetherspoons! I see you cringeing in the corner, trying to escape our gaze. You too have despicably crap spaces outside your lucrative premises… Buck your ideas up!
