Hartcliffe is Changing

The transformation in the physical environment of Hartcliffe is remarkable.

The Symes Avenue shops were, in recent years, a symbol of urban decay with barely a shop open and with the apartments above derelict and vandalized. It was a bleak and depressing site.

Symes Avenue is now no more, replaced by a brand new retail centre with a new Morrison's at its heart.

The latest changes, which include a face lift to the library and the creation of a playground adjacent to the new shopping centre, follow on from renovations to the tower blocks and the construction of several new homes in the area.

The brand new River of Life Christian Centre also spoke of changing times and was a positive addition to the community.
