THE ever-changing face of the Star area is captured in these two pictures taken by Les Millar at opposite ends of the road through Tweseldown, between Aldershot and Fleet.

Dominating the old Royal Pavilion site in Aldershot are striking hi-tech offices soon to be occupied by Computer Sciences Corporation (above).

And a few miles down the road Nokia is building a research and development centre (right) at the former Martin Lines army base, latterly a TA centre, at Church Crookham.

The £85-million CSC development is set to become the company's European and UK headquarters, with the opening scheduled for May. In March phase one will open, an area of 180,000 square feet.

About 2000 staff will eventually move to the imposing new buildings which will total 380,000 square feet. They will come from the current head office in Farnborough Road, Farnborough, and from ten other sites in the region.

Rushmoor Council believes the arrival of CSC will provide a major boost to Aldershot's economy. Minibuses will ferry staff into the town at lunchtimes.

Nokia also hopes that the first phase of its building at Church Crookham will be ready for occupation shortly.

Eventually several hundred workers will be employed there, many of them moving from other Nokia facilities in the area.
