Campaign to regenerate Berrylands Parade

Berrylands Parade
IN NEED OF REGNERATION: Mike, Emma & Andy have launched a campaign to invest in regenerating Berrylands parade, filling the empty shops and making the area look more attractive.

Youth Entrepreneur Andy Johnson, Small Business Owner Mike Head and Local Government Expert Emma Woods are campaigning to regenerate Berrylands Parade. They are collecting signatures to increase the number of trains from Berrylands train station from two to three per hour, which will bring more business to the parade.

Small Business Owner Mike Head said:

There was a time when Berrylands parade was bustling with shopping activity. It had a butcher, greengrocer, baker, mini-supermarket, florist, DIY store and two newsagents. We need to encourage more shops to move to the parade, not more offices.

They are also working with local business owners and campaigning to support our small shops by investing in our shopping parades and high streets.

Cllr Andy Johnson

Portfolio Holder: Resident Participation

Andy and his wife live on Avenue South, in the middle of the ward, and As first time buyers love our local area. He is passionate about the need to help young people get onto the career ladder. To address this, he and a friend set up a company to give young people a platform to discuss issues with world leaders. Andy says this helps them stand out from the crowd when looking for a career in diplomacy, communications, charity work or politics. To relax, Andy is usually found at Twickenham Stoop cheering on Harlequins, or else in the garden attempting to start the BBQ.
