Come and join the latest Haringey Cash Mob in Bowes Park on May 10th

Over the last few months a group of residents in Bowes Park - have been planning ways to make our neighbourhood even better. Now in the first public action on Saturday 10 May the We Love Myddleton Road group is holding a “cash mob” to help support the independent shops and businesses on the street.

Join us and commit to spending £10 on the 10th to support independent traders on this much loved Edwardian shopping street.

It’s a simple way to use the community’s spending power to make a difference to our local shops, to show them some support ... and to meet some of your neighbours.

You simply pledge to spend £10 in the street’s shops or businesses and then turn up on at a set time and get buying.

When’s it happening?

11am on Saturday 10 May.

Just turn up and meet everyone at the junction of Myddleton Road and Marlborough Road – outside the Red Sea Supermarket.

We’ll then head off to spend our cash in all the great businesses on the road – see below for what you can buy.

Afterwards (weather depending) the mob can head for a picnic in the Community Gardens or to a cafe to compare purchases, swap stories and to get to know each other.

Why is this important?

We Love Myddleton Road wants to work with the community and the businesses to save this wonderful street.

To give this amazing road a proper future we all need to show we are willing and support all its businesses. A cash mob like it an easy way to use our spending power to inject some money into the road – and to create a positive feeling.

We hope you”ll want to take part and will come along to show that the community really does love Myddleton Road.

Thanks and see you there.
