t’s good to see a number of Hockley buildings have recently been renovated. It’s taken a while but how smart the old bakery is now looking. The old Spa Pump House is also looking good, joining other buildings renovated in recent times such as Stibbards, Costa, Potters, Seemore Glass and Wells Legal. Unfortunately there are still a number of buildings not looking their best but it is understandable in these tough times. There are people that don’t like UPVC windows especially in older buildings or they may not be allowed as the building is listed. Often the alternative is peeling paint work and in my opinion, with windows, distressed is not a good look. I hope to see more buildings being improved in future, as I’m sure we all want our village to look its best to draw in those all important visitors and shoppers.
