    Thanks! I meant to say, I’m sure there are loads that we’ve missed, so if you spot one or you’re planning to hold an event, let us know and we’ll add it.

    On a separate note, I know it’s easy to be cynical about these things, but just think about Carrot day for example, if you’re a farm shop for instance it would be so easy to create a display in store featuring locally picked carrots, carrot juice, carrot cake, carrot soup etc – shops like Wholefoods have been doing this for years; it can make a difference to your profits.

    A day to celebrate local independent businesses and encourage people to ‘keep money in Brixton’ by using Brixton Pounds.
