Here are a few scouting reports from BC readers that are fairly light on detail and therefore are best bundled together:

Mantle Road:

Catman reports that one of the units in the new build opposite the demolished Maypole is being fitted out with a counter being installed.

The Tea Factory:

Of all things, an estate agent has opened in the Tea Factory, Brockley Cross.

Dandelion Blue:

The 'we're on holiday, back soon' sign has disappeared from the front window of the Coulgate Street shop and the agents' sign above it suggests the lease has now been sold.
