The recent arrival of a spate of new retailers such as Topshop, Topman, Mountain Warehouse and planned for October, TK Maxx in the High Street is having a significant effect in driving footfall to the town and, refreshingly, making it something of a destination for fashion shoppers.

Lower Richmond Road : Stage Music (prof. drum kits), Kitchen Architecture (Bulthaup kitchen design/install)
