Pure Fruit Aka. Brian Lay


Thankfully, after much local pressure from various sources, not least the hammering we gave Scamden in the last edition of the Hampstead Village Voice, the council has backed down on raising Pure Fruit’s rent by £5,700. 


So go and buy your fruit & veg' there, Jenkins and Son or AJ Fruiterers and not at Tesco-Stressco or M&S.

Incidentally, bumped into Philip Matthews of the Hampstead Butcher & Providor today at the Heath Street festival and he suggested the following:



INDEPENDENT'S DAY!  

Support Your Local Shops on 4th July 

Local retailers in Hampstead are flying the flag to support diversity on our high streets on Independents’ Day 2012!
On 4th July 2012 across the country, we are asking shoppers to buy at least one item from their local, independent shop to celebrate Independents’ Day 2012.  We are engaging with local independent retailers to support our campaign. 
The national campaign is organised by Skillsmart Retail and the National Skills Academy for Retail. In Hampstead it is promoted by the Mary Portas Hampstead Shops Campaign, spearheaded by Jessica Learmond-Criqui, which champions the local retailers who make the village so special. 
With over 160,000 independent retailers making up 92% of all retail businesses in the UK, their importance to local economies as well as their contribution to a location’s identity, character and community is unrivaled.


We are asking the local community to:
Buy at least one item from your local independent shop to celebrate Independents’ Day on 4th July, 2012!
