Well January is always a quiet month here in Windsor, but this year it seems particularly quiet. The shops, restaurants and B&B’s all seem to be having a hard time with lack of shoppers and I would guess a lack of those shoppers with money to spend.
This month we see mainly local and national people in Windsor and these are the people who have just recently been hit by the rise in VAT on top of all the doom and gloom of the announced cuts to public spending.
I’m guessing that this first quarter in 2011 will be worse than the start of the recession in 2009. I think things will pick up later in the year, the summer will bring the tourists back and I’m sure they will find England a bargain by then!
