Buy it Local comes to Wood Street on 15 Nov

news-bumblebeeNews from Waltham Forest Council that ‘Buy it Local’ – a campaign to promote local retailers – is coming to Wood Street next weekend on Saturday 15 Nov. The event will include a Pop Up Market in the Plaza, with opportunities for local businesses and traders.

Please note that this is a separate event from our upcoming Christmas Fayre on 13 Dec. It is being organised by the Council, not Wood Street First.

Update 13 Nov: The event is from 11 am – 4 pm. Wood Street First will have a stall – so why not come along and meet some of the panel?

Here are more details, provided by the Council:

Waltham Forest Council launched the Waltham Forest Buy it Local Campaign to help improve the borough’s economy and establish it as a place to live, work and visit. Encouraging residents to spend their money locally, making use of varied shops and services available in the borough.

We know Waltham Forest has everything our residents need right here, from everyday essentials to independent retailers and produce from around the world. There is no need to look further than your own doorstep for food, electrical goods or services. We want our residents to spend locally, retaining money within the borough, helping to improve Waltham Forest’s economy.

Pop Up Market

As part of the Event on Wood Street Plaza on the 15th November we are providing Pop up Stalls for local business and traders to sell their goods at a local Pop Up Market. If you are interested in taking part in the Pop up Market in Wood Street plaza on Saturday 15 November – contact Maureen Branch-Davis on 0208 496 6754 or email:
