A number of vacant units on Chiswick High Road look set to be filled with the arrival of a number of new retailers.

Signage for Up & Running has appeared at number 242 which has formerly been a bookmaker and a mobile phone shop. Reports indicate that the UK’s largest independent running specialist is planning a flagship shop at the site.

The group which has traded for over 30 years already has 28 stores across the country including one in East Sheen and sells running shoes and other equipment for joggers including electronics.

The other opening that looks set to happen is the arrival of Manor Springs which is a UK-based distributor of organic and natural foods based in Leyton. At the moment it only trades on line but is set to take over the site that was briefly occupied by Hush Hush café next to Gail’s Bakery having made a planning application for the premises. They say that the store opening is currently planned for the end of July.

We ask Up & Running for more details of their plans but have yet to receive a reply.

Value Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least two articles a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
