In these difficult times, we need to help each other and work together to save our local businesses and community spaces. Last month’s article ‘Community Spirit Saves the Day’, written by The Word Sanctum, has raised awareness in the community with great results. As family-run pub The Railway commented:
“A massive thank you to TW Magazine for featuring us. Wow, what a fantastic response we had from all their readers. Thank you so much for supporting us in these times!”
Whilst it’s cheering to hear how locals are supporting small businesses, we mustn’t forget the charities that are facing an uphill struggle. Independent charity the Landmark Arts Centre, part of the fabric of our community, should be celebrating its 25th anniversary…instead it is being threatened by closure.
In a bid to help save The Landmark, Teddington Together (organisers of the amazing Rockin’ the Lockin! virtual concert) have teamed with TW Magazines. We have dedicated this free space to local businesses and The Landmark, and hope to encourage our community to shop local (don’t forget Father’s Day on 21st June!). For those who can, please donate just £5 to save The Landmark (www.landmarkartscentre.org and follow the link to donate).
Without The Landmark, we may never have been introduced to the work of local talents such as Jennie Ing; our cover features her striking linocut of The Landmark. Jennie is offering her print at a special price and donating £50 from each sale to help the appeal (www.jennieingart.co.uk).
