Swindon Sitcom Loses Principal Character

Karen Walker has left Forward Swindon after just three months in the job.

Such a shame, considering she was working on a new regeneration plan for the town centre (taking into account the current/old one has failed) and the simple move of grassing over empty plots to give the town a radical improvement in appearance and increase in (temporary) open space.

It was for 'personal reasons', but, word is, her approach was at odds with Swindon Borough Council, who wanted a 'quick reaction plan' for when the economy picks up. The council are currently trying to push through the stunningly unimaginative scheme for Regent Circus.

Swindon Centric Says ; We need a long-term plan, otherwise we'll be in the same place in a decade, think beyond your own political interests councillors and give us some substance!
