Plans for a Flower Market in Chiswick

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a flower market in Chiswick, once a month on a Sunday morning, to attract people here to spend money in the area?

That is one of the ideas which will be discussed at a meeting this Thursday evening at 7.30pm in the Boston Room of George IV.

The Chiswick Calendar is pleased to be part of a consortium of businesses and residents who have ideas for improving the economy of the High Road,

The problem of empty shops in the High Road is as bad as it has ever been, so we’ve been looking at ways of making Chiswick more of a ‘destination’ where people come for an experience – especially one you can Instagram – rather than purely to shop, which you can do online.

Other ideas include a vintage clothing market and an association of landlords and tenants so businesses can share information and new businesses coming in don’t get ripped off by being charge an extortionate rent higher than the market price.

The group includes Abundance London, which brought Chiswick the mural at Turnham Green Terrace, the refurbished piazza there including the ‘W4th plinth’ community art work and a variety of planting schemes in urban spaces.

It also includes commercial surveyor Ollie Saunders, surveyor Steve Nutt and landscape gardener Stefano Marinaz, all local residents and businessmen who would like to see some community action to improve the vibrancy of the High Rd.
