[Forum] The Brooks Centre? Wakey wakey Bing!

The Brooks Center, Bradley Stoke, Bristol

Dear Editor,

Has anyone noticed that Bing maps (who took over Multimap) refer to the Willow Brook Centre as “The Brooks Center”[sic]? An interesting observation, surely this data must be old, as Brooks Centre was only in the running for a short time I believe, before Tesco caved in and finally held the naming competition.

Yours sincerely,

  1. @Joanne, You’re right, Tesco wanted to call it the Brooks Centre but the Town Council was against this name because it feared confusion with its own Brook Way Activity Centre. Tesco initially said it wouldn’t budge but then made a shock U-turn in May 2008. Read more here.
