Tottenham Traders Partnership honour area's longest-serving businesses
A travel agency and a restaurant are among the Tottenham’s longest-serving businesses which have been honoured with a commemorative plaque.
The independent retailers were honoured at the Tottenham Traders Partnership’s annual meeting, on Tuesday night, in recognition of their contribution to the high street.
It was supported by Haringey Borough Council and shopkeepers like Derek Lewis, who has worked at H Glickman Ltd, on Tottenham High Road, for more than 50 years, were among those to receive the new sign.
Other traders recognised include Graziano Parletta, who has owned San Marco restaurant in Bruce Grove since 1985, and John and Blanche Dawling, whose travel agency has been helping Tottenham see the world since 1972.
The scheme is part of a partnership between traders, the council and the Metropolitan Police to support local businesses and make the high street a more welcoming place for shoppers.
A 2014 Tottenham High Street Charter was also unveiled at Tuesday’s meeting.
It sets out commitments from all partners, including more events promoting businesses, continued shop front improvements and better training and support for traders.
Chair of the Tottenham Traders Partnership, Moaz Nanjuwany, said: “We are delighted to launch our second Tottenham High Street Charter in partnership with Haringey Council and the Metropolitan Police.
“We want the High Road to be a place that is attractive, open for business and promotes and embraces its heritage.”
