Help Each Other and Support Your Local Businesses

In these difficult times, we all need to help each other and work together to save our local businesses and community projects like The Real Junk Food Project, Twickenham.

Since the Covid-19 crisis, the pop-up cafes run by the TRJFP, using food diverted from landfill at ETNA Community Centre, East Twickenham, and Greenwood Centre, Hampton, have had to close. Instead, they are now redistributing their food collections from supermarkets and local independents to other organisations and charities, as well as delivering fresh care packages to those in need.

To raise awareness of all the hard work TRJFP are doing, we have dedicated this free space to local businesses 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 TRJFP, via PayPal to trjfp.twickenham@gmail.com. The link is www.paypal.me/trjfptwickenham.

Our cover features a striking linocut of the Eel Pie Island with Footbridge, by local artist Jennie Ing. Jennie is generously donating the proceeds from the next print sold from this edition to The Real Junk Food Project, Twickenham. (See page 3 for all details).

Furthermore, to support local businesses, the BID has been reaching out to its members and promoting those who are still open and delivering locally. They have set up TwickTraders, a free online trading platform for local businesses to sell to neighbouring residents.

TwickTraders is now an immediate response to C-19 and is running a low-key launch, with a small number of traders. Many businesses in Twickenham have online operations and home delivery services, some of which may have been affected by C-19 as their doors have been closed to the public. This platform is here to help any business that is based in and around Twickenham High Street, and that can deliver their goods locally. If you would like some more information on how to get involved with TwickTraders, please contact: n.heaphy@discovertwickenham.co.uk
