FG, Stevenage

Wednesday, October 4, 2023

Very practical for train and buses, now sole area of Stevenage with a large Boots and a Post office on the Forum. As a non-driver, the area is perfect for me however it is difficult and expensive to park near the Forum. As a woman, I don’t go out once dark settles in although late returns from work in the recent past have not worried me unduly. Tesco Extra is super efficient and reliably stocked but pricier than other supermarkets, all accessible by car or bus. The recent departure of Iceland, closure of Wilko have left the Forum wanting. BHS that closed years ago is still standing empty, which isn’t a good predictor for Wilko in particular. Lots of well stocked charities both on Forum and in Old Town. SG1 seems to be populated by young (30-40) professionals.
