New hotel for Slough to be completed next year

Moxy hotel
Slough Borough Council

A new hotel for Slough built with Slough Borough Council investment is set to completed in January next year.

The Moxy hotel development will see two Marriott International brand hotels and apartments built on the former library site.

Millennial-focused Moxy Slough hotel will feature short-stay rooms and have subtle Thunderbirds signage and artwork in a nod to the 1960s science fiction series filmed on Slough Trading Estate, according to Anderson Entertainment.

Residence Inn with long-stay rooms will also be part of the development, as well as 64 apartments.

Council leader James Swindlehurst said: "The council chose to involve itself with this development knowing it would be a long-term asset to the town in terms of creating employment for our residents, adding much needed hotel capacity and delivering a secure revenue stream back to the council.

"The development also includes much needed new housing and we look forward to when the doors are opened to welcome the first customers and residents.”

Nearly 6,000 sign petition over bus lanes in Slough

Nearly 6,000 people have signed a petition calling for new temporary cycle and bus lanes on a major road in Slough to be scrapped.

Slough Borough Council said it was needed on the A4 Bath Road to help persuade people to switch to public transport or cycling, and reduce air pollution.

Commuter Chance Meikle-Master, who set up the petition, said the change to half the number of lanes was "a money-making exercise".

He said: "By the end of the six-month consultation period we want Slough Borough Council not to go ahead with the bus lane, and we're hoping we can make them realise it truly is an idea that doesn't make sense."

Councillor Rob Anderson, cabinet member for transport, said with this "experimental scheme" they were trying to retain the reduction in traffic and air pollution on the road since the pandemic started.

He said "The buses are stuck in traffic just as the cars are.

"So if we can free up the buses, enable a safe and alternative route for cyclists and actually make the walking experience more pleasant, then we've got a chance of freeing up the road space."

Recycling collector turned musician to star in choir programme

A council recycling collector who turned his passion for music into a song about what could and couldn’t go in certain bins joined a TV choir set up during lockdown.

Mike Livingstone, 35, works for Slough Borough Council and is a member of Gareth Malone’s lockdown choir featured in The Choir: Singing for Britain, which starts tonight on BBC2.

Mr Livingstone had to record himself to feature in the programme, which he said will leave viewers feeling “spiritually lifted”.

He gained an online following after he sung to residents as he collected their rubbish.

He said: “It lifts people up. They go away smiling.

“They go away a bit boosted, thinking 'I didn’t expect that at 6 o’clock in the morning' and slightly enlightened.”
