by Mary Burstow on 16 October, 2014

It is all change in Cheam, as demolition work on Elizabeth House is well underway.  It feels very odd to be walking down Park Lane and see sky to the north.  The residents who had been living in Elizabeth House are all now living in the new flats in Mickleham Gardens.  They were given first […]

A knock on effect of the hoarding having gone up around Elizabeth House, is the poor lighting in Park Lane.  There is only one street lamp and that is it!  The builders have promised to put lighting up on the hoarding, but at the moment this has not happened. Walking down Park Lane, late at […]
