It never stops in Beeston. Pop to Charlie Fogg’s to get your boots reheeled, and by the time you come back something new has opened!
The White Lion
Work is well underway transforming the White Lion into half a pub/half a restaurant, after being bought by Notts brewers Lincoln Green. Really nice to see more investment in the area, particularly in a long-neglected pub which has tons of potential.
Taste of the (B)east(on)
For many years Beeston has been blessed with Fresh Asia, a treasure trove of food and drink from China, Korea, Japan and other countries in east. Now we have Oriental Mart, a mini-supermarket in the former Iceland unit. Between them they should stock even the most obscure ingredient you’ve read about.
More amazing street art has been created at the back of the Quadrant building next to the library by Anna Wheelhouse. As well as looking smart, the books also have some kind of link to Nottingham. Hats off to all involved for brightening up another plain wall.
Still not much movement
The long-awaited public toilets still appear far from opening for business, much to the consternation of cross-legged visitors to Beeston. We sincerely hope the delay is because of excessive paperwork or something rather than the builders doing a crap job.
