He said that last week he was set up further down the road, but is now o/s the co-op in halfway street trying to get trade...

  • This guy is doing a great job offering a good service., selling fresh produce. He is licensed to sell issued by the Council.

    He also contributes to a local food bank.

    For those who have any concerns at least speak to the man before making unsubstantiated complaints.

    By the way, Bexley Council have approved the William Hill shop becoming a takeaway pizza outlet. I suspect after a while you’ll be wish the fruit and veg man was there!
