New Look Kings Road: over the last 18 months there have been a number of changes that have given Kings Road a new look. Trees, shrubs and updated pavements were introduced in front of the International Centre complex and further along on the shopping parade we have seen a number of new independent retailers start up with a variety of goods and services on offer and the Sainsburys Local has had a make over. As I walked along on a recent summery morning, the sky blue, sun comfortably warm, summer outfits on view there was a definite continental feeling as several businesses offering refreshment had put tables outside for customers to enjoy their morning coffee and cake. Quite a transformation.
