Thank you to everyone who made our New Independents party last night such a resounding success.

So many of you came down to celebrate Brixton Design Week and the launch of our New Independents campaign yesterday at Grow:Brixton. The beautiful outdoors site was full of wonders – a wealth of art installations, a converted shipping container, wheelbarrow seats, free food, and a busy bar which saw lots and lots of B£s change hands. There were speeches, shoutouts, showcases and, very importantly, a vote – with an impressive turnout of about 50%, we overwhelmingly voted in favour of Brixton’s independence!

We also asked you to nominate your favourite Brixton Independent business, and a candidate for an Honorary President of Brixton, and we will announce these results soon. And keep your eyes peeled – the New Independents campaign, now reinforced by your support, will soon spread its wings. For now – thank you to everyone who made it such a great night with a spectacular atmosphere!

And don’t forget to tell your friends about B£ – Refer A Friend is on till Sunday! Get a friend to sign up for a B£ account, and you both get B£5 credit – it’s a no brainer. The sun is shining.  It’s almost the weekend too. Life is great sometimes, isn’t it? (Sorry, Scotland.)
