Flower Kiosk

Well, the three retail units that were occupied by Fullwell Autos remain available. Fullwell Autos closed its doors over a year ago in November 2015. The two retail units occupied by the old Post Office also remain unoccupied but have been “Acquired for clients” now for some time.

But the Kiosk next to the [singular] public toilet on the High Street, which has been available since April 2016, looks like it may have a taker.

This (above) appeared in the “weekly” licence “updates” for week ending 11 December 2016 and was published on Redbridge-i in the last few days along with all the other “weekly” updates from 7 November 2016 to 9 January 2017 and included all the Christmas events needing licences that have now been and gone.

Vaping in Barkingside

We had noticed that Ye Olde Sweet Shop had closed just before Christmas but we thought it was being refurbished. Turns out that it is now a Hale Vape Shop, which opened on 26 December, Boxing Day.

So, if you need some help to quit smoking and keep your new year resolution this is the place to go.

Chigwell Organics

Not strictly in Barkingside but Manford Way is a regular haunt for some Barkingside people, this new shop deals in all things organic, which we at Barkingside 21 approve of.

In fact it’s so new that it doesn’t even come up on a Google search, but it is there at number 199 and also has the seal of approval from our MP Wes Streeting and our Tea Man Councillor Roy Emmett.

Hasan Durna, the proprietor, says “We aim to ensure our local residents have access to products good for the world, good for the animals and good for the environment.

With significant nutritional differences between organic and non organic farming and the growing awareness of this, is with no doubt the reason for an ongoing demand for organic food.

Our primary mission is to provide our residents with the best quality products benefiting not only their health but also for the best of our planet., we say never settle for anything less than organic.

Our products will consist of spices, herbs, cereals, pulses and many more ingredients and healthy options which can accompany ones meal.

Our suppliers include:
  • Covent Garden Market
  • Goodness Food
  • Biona Organics
  • Hatton hill Organic
  • Mr Organic
  • Suma Organic"

Inpost – Simply Exciting

In the library car park on Craven Gardens – could this be something to do with Mayfair Stationers? Whatever, it sure is a sign of the times for the bold new age of the High Street. InPost.

Mayfair Stationers going On-Line Only

Another long term High Street shop falls to the times of fast food. But you can still buy pens that are mightier than the sword, implements that can divide and rule, calendars and diaries to plot your next move, notepads and envelopes etc etc. at their On-line store. Although if you are reading this you’ll have a computer, tablet or iPhone plus email, so why would you need a pen?

Paul is looking to shut down the shop about the end of September.

Don’t Panic – It’s only a holiday
– Danny’s Pie ‘n Mash

It’s only for a fortnight – honest!

Papa John’s Barkingside is open for Business

Our MP will be pleased – he likes Pizza and lives just round the corner.
