On Saturday 31st October, the Mayor of Lambeth took part in a B£ shopping spree, that started off at Morleys of Brixton department store where the Mayor got himself some B£s.
Next on the list was A&C Continental, Portuguese deli on Atlantic Road, from which the Mayor emerged with a bag of goodies, including herbs and onions for his dinner. From there the Mayoral convoy, made up of a number of B£ supporters and onlookers, moved to the Arcades market for a stop at Wa Zo Bia, African food store, to buy some chilies, and then across to Secondo, vintage clothes outlet, where the Mayor picked up a very cool jersey.
From there, and with many hello-stops at regular intervals, the Mayor reached Nubian Natural Body Care, on Atlantic Road, where B£s came handy in the purchase of some scrumptious salt crystals. Next it was Diverse Gifts, on Atlantic Road, and finally over to Stuart the Watchmaker, on Pope Road, before the Mayor said good bye to the team and headed off to his next engagement. No doubt those bath salts would have come handy that evening.
The shopping spree was a fantastic success in promoting participating businesses and the B£, with passers-by and shoppers out and about in Brixton.
