Dominic Raab MP Welcomes Re-Opening Of The Heart Shopping Centre

Posted: Jun 20, 2020


On Saturday 20th June, Esher and Walton MP Dominic Raab attended the re- opening of The Heart Shopping Centre in Walton-on-Thames. 

The Heart Shopping Centre, like many across the country, has been following government guidelines in relation to the recent COVID-19 outbreak in the United Kingdom. 

This week the shopping centre had a number of stores and restaurants re-open and provide collection and or browsing services to the community it serves. 

Dominic Raab MP said: 

The Heart is an important part of the community in Walton, so it is encouraging to see it re-opened as part of the latest careful easing of the lockdown measures. I am very impressed by the hard work everyone has put in to make sure that The Heart is COVID-19 secure. 

“The past few months have been very difficult for retailers in Walton, so I would encourage residents – if they are able – to get out and support them.”

Mr Rowen Squibb from Why Media, which supports communications for The Heart, explains “I have been working at The Heart since the redevelopment in 2006 and it's a fantastic community that pulls together and offers a truly modern town centre and great links, working with individuals like Mr Dominic Raab to deliver on the communities needs and understand how Walton-on-Thames can come out stronger is ever so important and we hope to see some great new businesses join the fantastic group of retailers, restaurants and other operators that currently make up the town centre”. 

The Heart has been working for the last 4 weeks ahead of re-opening, to ensure that every reasonable step is taken to ensure the safety of all. The centre is keen to get back to normal, but also understands it cannot rush things as it looks to take a slow and steady route to a full reopening of businesses such as hairdressers and restaurants. 


The Heart Shopping Centre spans just over a million square feet and is a central focus point of Walton-on-Thames town centre. With 59 stores and restaurants, a 799 space car park, a gym and 279 apartments, it is a bustling environment. Although originally built in the 1960s, The Heart Shopping Centre was part of a £150million investment, reopening in 2006. This regeneration, delivered by O&H Properties, has led to the town centre being the attractive development that it is today.
