I lived in the town centre when I was a kid (1970s) and remember Redhill motors well. Then Planprints, then a bulldozer and two houses.... East Street has had a fair bit of development over the last few years with the Redhill motors site, flats at the top of the hill, the garages being converted to houses by the car park and now the old library prefab building.
