Three independent operators have signed up for units in Wokingham town centre.

Hamlet bistro, Peacock House Interiors and The Vale Clinic, a local podiatry centre, are the latest occupiers to take new space in the regenerated town.

Hamlet bistro will open in Peach Place, Peacock House Interiors at Elms Field and The Vale Clinic has moved to a unit on the corner of Elms Walk and Denmark Street.

Cllr Charlotte Haitham-Taylor, executive member for regeneration, said: “These are three fantastic new businesses, who really fit with the vision we had for a town which offers people a great range of independents and national names.

“Each one of them brings something new to the town whilst also reflecting how the high street has changed over the years to become the place people go to socialise, access services, as well as to shop.

“Whilst we know that’s not possible at the moment due to lockdown, we very much believe it will recover and grow as restrictions lift and people can return when it’s safe to do so.”

Further announcements of lettings are expected in Spring.

Cllr Haitham-Taylor added: “It’s been an incredibly difficult period for all the town centre’s businesses.

“But despite this Wokingham has continued to attract new businesses who feel that the town is on a great road to recovery and is the place they want to be trading in when restrictions begin to ease. It’s a real testament to how people view the town and something I think we should all be really proud of.”
