A group of residents have clubbed together on social media to try to revitalise Tolworth Broadway.

The Broadway Community began as a discussion on Facebook, and has now morphed into a full-on campaign to promote Tolworth businesses.

Organiser Andrea Tucker, 46, said: "The view is maybe to make it a bit more appealing and just encourage people to use their local shops rather than going into Kingston or Epsom.

"We're just a small group of residents who would like to introduce vibrant and interesting plans for the Broadway.

"Ideas and suggestions are welcome on our Facebook page."

If you would like to get involved with Broadway Community, the group's next meeting will be at the Broadway Bar at 6pm on Tuesday, September 9.

Why do folks go to Kingston? Easy. There's an extensive choice of stores; terrific selection of merchandise; wide range of value/price options; and an appealing shopper experience. Tolworth needs to offer something unique, that can't be found in KOT - as opposed to what feels like a wasteland of fried chicken and pizza shops. And unless it does so, I'm inclined to feel that no amount of tweeting is going to reverse the continuing decline of the Broadway.

Tolworth has uniqueness!

Limp trees, pretty green coloured centre reservation / walkway / car park thing, it has badly phased traffic lights, oh... And a lovely eyesore that is Tolworth Tower!

This isn't just about Tweeting. It's about going to the meetings or putting these opinions of yours on the wall of the Group Facebook page so your ideas can be considered. Instead of complaining about Tolworth on here, do something proactive like they are doing and support them.
