By building a Guild community in Clapton we can share information that will help keep rents reasonable and support each other to recover.

On our own we are vulnerable but by building our membership, together we can see through our vital Commercial Rent Manifesto for a sustainable recovery. 

We don’t lack the ideas to make rent fair for small businesses or to support a sustainable recovery, we just don't have enough people power yet. That’s why we’re crowdfunding to raise money for a Community Organiser. From experience, we know that organising small businesses to work together with a skilled member of staff is the only way to build the collective power we need to compel change. 

There are currently over 300 members in the Guild. In Clapton we already have the following amazing businesses in membership:

MIMI BERRY, PACK AND CLOWDER, THE MERMAID, WILD AND WOOLLY, PYLON CERAMICS, DE SELBY LTD, E5 ACUPUNCTURE, PAGES OF HACKNEY, CASEY'S OF CLAPTON, FRMD, KATE SHERIDAN AND SKANDIHUS LTD.

To add your name to this list of impressive businesses simply click on the reward that says "120 Group Discount".

In our 2018 Affordable Workspace Manifesto, we painted a picture of the empty London we see now “Can you imagine the capital without its kaleidoscopic small businesses from Chinatown to Brick Lane, Columbia Road to Portobello Road, and the myriad of markets from Walthamstow to Brixton? It would be a hollow place, with only its silent monuments distinguishing it from everywhere else.”

We never imagined then that this was to become the reality so soon. 

On May 6th, the new Mayor of London will be elected. Before that happens we want to put our Commercial Rent Manifesto proposals in front of the main party candidates for commitments for action, so that way whoever wins, our proposals win with them. But we can’t get the candidates attention unless we have enough members. Will you help us by joining or supporting the Guild today?

If you are a small business, social enterprise or a self-employed person you can join through this crowdfunder. Save a 3rd on membership by joining as part of an affiliate group of 5 or more members. That’s £120 per year - that's just £10 a month. 

And if you’re a member of the public who’d like to help you can enter our EETG lucky dip as a huge THANK YOU to receive a beautiful product from one of our members.
