The “Meanwhile in the Manor” project has opened in an empty retail unit in Victoria Road.
The project is by Hillingdon Council working with Meanwhile Space, who are also busy working in Brent and elsewhere.
The shop unit has been hosting events aimed at assisting local businesses and entrepreneurs, including window dressing advice. The council and Meanwhile Space are looking for businesses, which could be new start-ups, existing businesses, community groups or creative projects to open in the vacant shop.
They are inviting businesses to pitch ideas for the unit in a competition where the winner will get three months rent and rates free, in return for providing some benefit to the community.
