Sad to see Whitemores leave the high street

We see that Whitemores the butchers are closing. Sad to see an independent closing from our high street.

Southbourne Grove is still a very vibrant place that has enough people around to support all of the businesses. I hope that the imminent opening of a supermarket chain opposite has not forced their hand.

Update: there was a sign on the door that says they can still deliver and have another shop in Branksome that you can call. Unfortunately I didn’t take the number down.
