In Gerrards Cross at the moment you are so fortunate there are so many excellent businesses in your local area; you have no need to look further afield for anything you might need. Sadly this is not the case in some other areas in the UK now and here at thebestof we want to do all we can to encourage communities with hearts to keep them beating! We want to help them grow strong! But we can't do it without you, the local population, being willing to participate and take up the challenge to check first if what you want or need is available locally before deciding to look further afield.
If you find a good local business come on to www.thebestof.co.uk/gerrardscross and tell us who they are! Recommend them and when we showcase them give them a testimonial so other local people can see how good they are.
For our part, we at thebestof, will always go on local recommendation when we showcase a local business and proclaim it to be worthy of your attention. We will listen attentitively to your views, comments and recommendations and we will be delighted to chat with you on the blogspot whenever you have time to write us a line or two.
I'm looking forward to spending some time both on and offline with as many of you as possible and watching your local area in and around Gerrards Cross flourish!
