Do you, like we Radicals, try to support local business in Blackheath and grab your coffee in Montpelliers rather than Costa, shoes from Pares, or visit a local restaurant rather than a chain? As part of the effort to support local business ‘We Are Blackheath’ has negotiated a great range of offers to use in the village between 13 and 30 September. ‘We Are Blackheath’ was set up by local PR guru Andrea Britton with the express aim of supporting local business and events.
Offers cover restaurants (including Chapters, Locale, Zero Degrees); money off courses and events at the Conservatoire (that’s Sydney on the left!), Blackheath Halls, and Blackheath Cooks; discounts on hairdressers; free cupcakes (Montpelliers) and croissants (Boulangerie Jade); discounts at shops; and much more. The website also has a great selection of photos taken by Warren King and Simon Siggs (a few reproduced in this post) that show the people behind local businesses. And now there is the ‘offers’ page.
The Revolt was surprised at the breadth and quality of offers available and learnt a few things about local businesses too – Blackheath Cooks cookery school was unknown to us, as was Blackheath Sweet Bakes. So check it out and take advantage, whether it is a discount at your usual haunts or using the offers as an incentive to try somewhere new.
