2nd Anniversary of the West Hampstead Business Association

In November 2011, in response to requests from local businesses and as a business owner herself,  Cllr Gillian Risso-Gill  launched the West Hampstead Business Association with the support of Camden Council. Since then, the WHBA supports the annual West Hampstead Christmas Market on West End Green, established the hugely popular weekly WH Farmers' Market on the Thameslink forecourt and facilitated the future move of the Post Office to the Sherriff Centre in St. James'Church.The WHBA has also been the voice of local business and continues to promote West Hampstead as a good place to do business.

Last Thursday, 28th November, the WHBA hosted a visit by London Mayor, Boris Johnson at The Wet Fish Cafe, where he met local business people and was challenged on various policies that affect business such as parking, traffic, and business rates.  He then visited businesses on West End Lane, including West End Lane Books, Colour Division and Paramount before visiting the Sherriff Centre and discussed the innovative plans to run the first main Post Office and other services in London within a church building.
