I love the walks and pathways around Midsomer Norton, they are a great escape! We do need a shop that stocks make-up (like Boots). The only place that sells it in the high street is Lloyds and Sainsbury and there's a not a lot of variety. There's also no men's wear shops.
I think the best thing about Midsomer Norton is the river I remember growing up when my brother Reg and I would paddle in the river in the summer and splash each other with the water from the river. My aunt Grace would sit on a deckchair at the side of the river playing Bridge with her girlfriends until it got dark.
I also like Martins.
I think Midsomer Norton needs more charity shops due to the current credit crunch. In the Nineteen Eighties we could afford new tellys from Granada's but times are different now. I certainly wouldn't swim in the river these days.
Hi Tinytrish, lots of clubs and organisations are meeting at the local coffee shops and at the Greyhound during the week and ....with the new arts centre, perhaps there will be more of a gathering point for local artists. dancers and musicians....I think there's lots of talent in Midsomer Norton and perhaps we can bring some VA VA VA VAOOM back into the town!
