To illustrate this it is using a picture of the sadly missed Warehouse Theatre, which closed more than a year ago for lack of £30,000 when the council axed its grant. It says much about the state of Croydon town centre.
And how Croydon BID works.
This is, after all, the organisation which plasters messages of how dynamic a place for business Croydon happens to be, with posters all over the windows of the dark and empty Allders store.
The lame excuse offered by Croydon BID – the alliance of major firms centred around North End and the Whitgift Centre – for this piece of dull publicity, and the “There is no news” message on its “News” page, is that their site is undergoing a “redesign”.
What will the billionaire developers of the Hammersfield development think of it all?
Let’s hope nothing significant happens for Croydon business in the meantime, eh?
