For one day only, local independent retailers are providing special offers, discounts and promoting goods outside their shops at the second annual Independent’s Day.

There will also be street entertainment and a range of stalls positioned in the high street in Northwood Hills at the event - run by the high street’s independent businesses in conjunction with Northwood Hills Residents’ Association - to support local shops.

It will also be a chance to show off the refurbished town centre as part of the council’s town centre improvement programme funded by the Mayor of London.

Councillor Douglas Mills, cabinet member for community, commerce and regeneration, said: "Independents’ Day is a great opportunity to show the value of independent shops to our community and encourage footfall to local shops."

Independent’s Day runs in Joel Street, Northwood Hills, on Saturday, September 13, from 11am-4.30pm.
