I took Dad shopping today we went to Welwyn Garden City. I do like Welwyn (well as far as shopping centres go), lots of Greenery, the Howard Centre is better than most and it has a John Lewis!
We've not been there since Mum died and it is amazing how much has changed! The car park has no tickets or barriers, you just punch in the last 3 digits of your registration in when you want to pay and a picture of your car appears! and you pay. You could drive off without paying and pay by internet by the end of the day... after that they'll come after you I guess!
Dad likes John Lewis as he can say "HOW MUCH" :D
Here is Rye Gate House near Rye Meads.
