Valentines Mansion, Valentines Park Ilford CANCELLED

Posted by E17 Designers

Valentines Mansion event on Saturday 14th December has been cancelled; the offer to us from VM changed from the original description I sent to you all when I did some research early in the Summer. For various reasons, I decided to cancel the event. Sorry if that has changed your plans at all, but footfall (amongst other things) could have been a real issue. It was an amicable decision, I was as positive as I could be so there may be opporunities for a Summer event in the future.

Walthamstow Business Forum in partnership with Waltham Forest Council are inviting businesses in the High Street, Hoe Street and James Street areas to be part of a Business Pop-up event in Walthamstow Market on Saturday 19th October.

The purpose of the event is to give businesses an opportunity to raise awareness of the array of goods and services in the local area, promote your business, increase your sales and client base. Offer discounts and promotions and help to create a general buzz and increased footfall in the area.

In addition you will need to have public liability insurance cover. Most businesses will already have it in place.
