Local shops, cafes and businesses are dotted all over Nine Elms – and now My Virtual Neighbourhood has teamed up with Wandsworth Council in this summer’s #shoplocal campaign.

As businesses prepare to welcome customers with new measures in place, the council is encouraging residents to shop locally and support their local high streets and retailers as they get back on their feet.

If you enjoyed the convenience of shopping in your local neighbourhood and discovering unique products from local retailers, check if your favourite businesses are open, and if not please send in the details to let other people in your neighbourhood know how great it is!

And if you’re a local business who needs to let your neighbours know you’re open for sales, deliveries or takeaways, submit your details to get listed.

Basil Fansa, founder of My Virtual Neighbourhood, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Wandsworth Council to help residents access supplies and to promote the incredible resilience of local businesses – many have adapted really quickly to continuing serving their community.

“I’d urge locals to use the website to nominate businesses which are still trading so we can make this local resource as comprehensive as possible. Independent businesses bring so much character to our high streets and do enormous good for the local economy – it’s great to see Wandsworth Council supporting them in this way.”
