Re: News & Developments: Elizabeth & Salisbury

The site on Womma Road (just east of Stebonheath Road, south side) that had an aluminium and steel place on it was flattened a few weeks ago. A new concrete slab building is going up, and large underground tanks being installed today, so I assume it is another new fuel outlet. There are no signs to...

Only Elementary ever seems to be open regularly now, and the makeup place sporadically - the others popped up, traded for a week and then seem to have remained shut ever since.
