Poppies - Spitalfields

Description

At Poppies you will taste our mouth watering, fresh, sustainably caught fish, cooked in crunchy batter, served with golden chips together with experiencing a great buzz and authentic atmosphere going back to the 1940’s and 50’s.

Poppies is more that just a fish bar. Pop has recreated East End London between 1945 and 1955. It was a time of rebirth: the end of the war, the return of our forces from overseas, thriving trade in the food markets and the rebuilding of our city. Hot, quick, tasty, fish and chips were the fuel that powered the people. Read more »

Joanne Scott London Ltd. (Trade name: Tara Starlet)

Description

Nostalgic clothes for modern women.

Tara Starlet is a vintage inspired fashion line with responsible ethics and a timeless charm. We advocate recycling, and original buttons and trimmings are incorporated into the designs wherever possible, giving our collection true authenticity.

End of roll fabrics are also used, putting to good use what would otherwise be waste. This means that the designs are often made in a selection of different fabrics with a limited amount of garments of each one, so you won’t find hundreds of other women wearing the same thing! Read more »

The Real Bread Campaign

Description

Part of the food and farming charity Sustain, the Real Bread Campaign brings together everyone who cares about the state of the nation’s loaf life.

Sadly, the way in which the vast majority of products marketed as ‘bread’ are now manufactured and sold could lead one to question whether we as a nation give two hoots about our daily loaf any more. The good news, however, is that change is underway and Real Bread is on the rise. Read more »
