Some positive activity around Waterlooville?

Waterlooville is struggling to survive as a retail and business area, but it is good to see three shops openning, two in Waterlooville centre and one opposite Hambledon Parade.

The two in Waterlooville are food/cafe units. One is a bakery/cafe selling Cornish pasties, cakes and drinks, the other is still being kitted out, but it looks like it will be a Pizza cafe of some sort.

Meanwhile, at Hambledon Parade the empty shops under the new Wellington Park flats appears to be acquiring a Premier convenience store. However given there are two existing convenience stores (Mace and McColls) in Hambledon Parade itself, it looks like something has got to 'give' and someone is going to lose out.

The other issue of course is that we have plenty of cafes and food stores already!

Oh and charity shops.

I'll have pictures and other details later.

Falcon Heavy

I'm a great fan of SpaceX and I'm a great fan of electric vehicles.
Hopefully tomorow SpaceX will successfully launch a Tesla Roadster into orbit around the Sun using the new Falcon Heavy rocket, on top of that they hope to land all three Falcon 9 first stages that make up the Heavy. It will be the first flight of the heavy and the Tesla car is the test cargo for the mission.
