Love Local! Support Local! That is what I want to say this week.
I am sure you know that I love supporting local organisations and events, well today I am encouraging you to do the same.
An event on today is the Bountagu Community Festival with world food, fun and activities.
It is on from 11am to 4pm at Montague Road Recreation Ground, N9 0EU. Go along with your family and have a great day out supporting a local community event!
Just a tiny bit of background information for you. Bountagu – Big Local is an organisation based in Edmonton and their Summer Newsletter tells you in a nutshell what they are about. It says,
Get involved and enjoy a range of exciting opportunities to do with community life, learning, business, leisure and the environment.
You can check out their Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Bountagu for more information.
If you are a local business and want to get your name/brand out there, local festivals are a great way of doing so. Not only are they usually good fun, but you get to meet a variety of people and of course you test the water with your products/services.
One such local company, The Corrine Whyte Collection will be making a debut at the event, selling a vibrantly coloured range of accessories with a distinctly African theme. (See the main photo). This exciting new venture is definitely one to watch!
Enfield Council has a section on their website for events. If you are an organiser you will have to check the terms and conditions for submitting an event to them. Please see http://www.enfield.gov.uk/events for upcoming events and make a note in your diary.
If you are a small business and you need advice, support or business facilities, check out The Let’s Go! Business Hub at Enterprise Enfield. The website is http://www.enterpriseenfield.org/.
Love your doorstep, who are usually out and about covering local events are also big promoters of all things Enfield. See http://www.loveyourdoorstep.co.uk/.
With all this information, remember to Love Local Support Local!
Enjoy the weather!
