Buy Bearwood or Bearwood bye...

Welovebearwood think it’s great that Bearwood’s putting an application together for the Portas Pilot Funding Scheme. £80k could make a big difference to our High Street.

We’d love to see the money go towards trees along the High Street (maybe even its partial pedestrianisation too), more cafes, pop up shops, a new market (the existing one is a little ‘tired’)...yes, it’s a lot to ask for from the £80k but it’s a start.

What we mustn’t forget though is that Bearwood already has some great shops and it’s up to all of us to support them by trying to shop local. We’re 100% behind Melanie Martin’s 4 week shopping in Bearwood challenge on Facebook too. Why don’t you give it a try too and let us know which shop is your Bearwood All-Star is.

If you’re a regular reader of welovebearwood you’ll know that one of our favourite shops is Webb’s of Bearwood. If you want to buy some new plants, bird seed or a pressie for Mother’s Day why bother going anywhere else? Webb’s has been in Bearwood for over 90 years now so to make sure they’ll around for another 90 years welovebearwood recommends that you give them a visit.

Samantha who runs the gift shop told us about the new stock she’s got coming in all the time and she’s particularly excited about the Bomb Cosmetics smellies.

Webb’s have got lip balms, shower scrubs, butters, mud masks, bath salts, body polish, soap slices, bath creams, candles, gift sets – you name it the full (body) works. All the smellies are handmade too, essential oil based and not animal tested.

Samantha sent me some photos – Lushious!
