We recently took the decision to join the East End Trades Guild, a community of small independent businesses set up by Krisse Nicolson.
East London is host to a plethora of incredible small businesses, who add to the appeal of the area and boost the local economy and community. However, East London is also an area with some of the highest rents and business rates in the country, so it's vital for small businesses to stick together and speak in unity in case of unscrupulous landlords or unfair business rate rises.
We look forward to supporting the guild and meeting it's members in one of the regular members events in the area. If you're a small business in the East End, or just interested in finding out about other members of the guild, check out their website here: http://eastendtradesguild.org.uk/
Shop local - it's always better :)
