After 31 years with heavy hearts Perry’s have announced the closure of their last remaining store on the Fulham Road. Perry’s Art + Office has been run as an independent family business since 1986 and this pillar of the community will be much missed. As they prepare to close their doors at the end of November everything must be sold so do stock up on your essentials or simply pop in to say goodbye and wish the owners a happy retirement. Now more than ever, please think of supporting the amazing range of independent businesses we have in our urban village.

Parents can use ParentVille’s party planning service or shop their curated collection to find everything they need for a children’s party. ParentVille’s selection for Halloween includes everything from sugar skull plates to bat cups; even we’re tempted by the personalised glow in the dark trick or treat bag!
