Council encourages residents to support local businesses affected by recent flooding
Merton Council Leader Councillor Stephen Alambritis, alongside Councillors Andrew Judge, Katy Neep and Abby Jones, have been out encouraging people to use their local shops, many of which were badly affected when a water main burst on July 3.
Thousands of homes and businesses were without water while repairs were carried out, but the road re-opened on July 11.
The local councillors have recently been distributing letters to businesses and residents offering help and support in the wake of the flooding.
Councillor Alambritis said: “We are proud to support local businesses in the borough and we want to continue to encourage residents to use their local shops.
“A lot of people were badly affected by the flooding, including businesses in the Kingston Road area of south Wimbledon.
“By shopping locally, residents can help keep them afloat. We want to let people know that south Wimbledon is still open for business.”
