This section of the site covers business matters. It aims to publicise local micro-businesses run by local residents, and also to be a store of information about local tradespeople. Also in this section is a note about the Chilworth Business Network, currently dormant, as well as some information about the Science Park.
If you are a resident running a local business that you think would be of interest to others in the village, then simply send in a couple of paragraphs (with an optional image and/or logo) and it will be put on the list in alphabetical order.
Local Tradespeople – Recommendations
Cllr Finlay was always very helpful in passing on recommendations when someone needed any kind of tradesperson. However, her advice wasn’t usually widely published and was soon lost from view. The same applies to the Nextdoor website – people ask for advice and what advice they do get is visible for a while before being buried under later posts.
The idea here is to have a curated list of tried and trusted traders – gardeners & landscapers, tree surgeons, painters & decorators, builders & handymen, plumbers, cleaners, carpenters, caterers etc. If you praise them, we’ll spread the word. You may either use the comment facility or just send in an e-mail and your recommendation will be posted for all to see.
