Brighton Hill - All Change

All Change

In the early 2000s there were rumours of a complete overhaul of the Brighton Hill Centre, and surrounding areas. Many residents were sceptical and morale at the time was low. For what seemed like a very long time, Brighton Hill was missing out on many basic features, one example is the lack of cashpoint in the area, the nearest being around two miles away. Provisions in the convenience stores in the area were a lot more expensive than those in the supermarket, particularly affecting the elderly and disabled who found it harder to travel further than the estate. The general atmosphere in the area did not do much to lift residents' spirits at this stage in time.

However, in 2002 the demolition of the former supermarket began. This involved digging up car parking and also demolition of the Pig and Whistle public house, by this time closed. The work also involved filling in of 'subways' under roads in the immediate area and new crossings provided. This was as the former subways were often inhabited by youths and were seen by residents as intimidating places. Additional footpaths were built, particularly in the green area behind the precinct and also a new playground built at a higher level than the previous one. Bus stops nearby were lengthened to accommodate two buses easily and two new roundabouts constructed, adding to the 'Doughnut City' label Basingstoke has already. Much of the site has been taken over by the Asda supermarket and associated parking spaces.

All Change

All Change was an English children's television show on ITV in 1989 and 1990 (Also later repeated on The Children's Channel in the early 90's). It starred Frankie Howerd, Peggy Mount, Maggie Steed, Tony Haygarth and Pam Ferris, and was devised by Morwenna Banks and Chris England.

The storyline concerned Uncle Bob, played by Howerd, who would give all his money when he died to one branch of his family. One branch was poor and common, the other branch was rich and snobbish. Each family had two parents and a son and a daughter.

The rich family lived as the poor family and vice versa, although one child stayed in their own home with the newcomers, finding out how the other half lived.

After the end of the series, it was all revealed as a hoax and no-one was any better off.

Famous quotes containing the word change:

    Where we come from in America no longer signifies—it’s where we go, and what we do when we get there, that tells us who we are.
    The irony of the role of women in my business, and in so many other places, too, was that while we began by demanding that we be allowed to mimic the ways of men, we wound up knowing we would have to change those ways. Not only because those ways were not like ours, but because they simply did not work.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    The child to be concerned about is the one who is actively unhappy, [in school].... In the long run, a child’s emotional development has a far greater impact on his life than his school performance or the curriculum’s richness, so it is wise to do everything possible to change a situation in which a child is suffering excessively.
    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
