Named and Shamed

Named and Shamed


Squalid roads, buildings and locations in Croydon named and shamed.

The Times reports that Croydon's famed/despised carbuncle, Lunar House, may soon be sold to a Greek shipping magnate for redevelopment into an even larger office block.

Whilst money is being spent on building larger office blocks, that doubtless will remain unoccupied, useful shops and amenities such as Beano's (the second hand record shop near Surrey Street market) are closing.

Beano's has been around for 35 years and has been forced to close, not because of the internet but, because Croydon town centre is so crappy these days that people simply do not want to come here to shop.

There is a lesson here somewhere, if Croydon council could be bothered to think about it.
