Just spoken to the site manager for the new M&S in the precinct, work starts next week, and the store will be open in about 3 months.

No news on Costa Coffee.

They won't be open in time for Christmas then 😕 Glad they are still coming though. I did wonder, when it said on the news that M&S were not opening as many food stores as they hoped, if Chalfont would be one of the victims.
Weekends are a bit like rainbows. They look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.

The works at M&S are to take place over 17 weeks, so current plan is aiming to open mid March.  Just had a residents meeting with the contractors and were shown the detailed schedule.
They usually turn around a new refit in 6 weeks but this is a number of units into one so bit more work to do.

No worries, they will be putting a community fence up across the front so that will contain a load of info on community interaction and plans for inside etc.
He was really keen to get involved in the community.  I mentioned to him that the next village event coming up would be the Xmas fun night so he'll be in touch with the organisers.

Also, I have heard different on Costa...I heard just couple days ago that they had picked up the keys.
Time will tell! :)

As far as I know, Costa is still in the pipeline.
Thanks for the info, Sunray and CharlieB.
