This section of the site aims to publicise local micro-businesses, typically operated from home, and also to be a store of information about local tradespeople.
If you are a resident of the village and you run a local business that you think would be of interest to other residents, 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 is always very helpful in finding advice when someone needs any kind of tradesperson. However, her advice isn’t usually widely published and is soon lost from view. The same applies to the Streetlife website – people ask for advice and what advice they do get is visible for a while and then is buried under later posts. (The other problem with Streetlife is that it lumps Chilworth in with Bassett, Swaythling, Eastleigh, Chander’s Ford and North Baddesley.)
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.
