Sadly, that planning application on the window reveals it’s William Hill which wants to shoehorn another betting shop into this street.
Just a few yards from Broad Street, this den of misery will be the most central betting shop in town, no doubt buoyed by the law allowing four addictive gaming machines.
You might think the government could consider the fact that people with little money get addicted, blow their cash and then require benefits, might influence them enough to do something about these places.
But their response has been feeble. The only thing you can do is try to keep your kids away from them but it would have been useful if they weren’t allowed on the high street.
