Heyand & Whittle


FACE thanks Furzedown Festival’s Big Day Out

Typical british summer!


BDO 2013 – one to remember!

it was amazing that so many people braved the weather to support our community festival, with locally produced beer and bread; crafts and therapies; as well as cake making competitions, sporting activities and charity stalls like ours and a great line up of local bands, music and dancing.


The organisers at Furzedown community network did a really great job! Events like this are so important and are a great place for us raise money for our three local charities – MNDA, St George’s Hospital and The Furzedown Project.

ImageHere was some good advice from Thirstdown – our local micro brewery, who brought along their SW1G beer to try.

WET WET WET! Furzedown Big Day Out makes a splash.


The Furzedown Festival survived incredible downpours and carried on regardless.

Despite the rain and cold we were kept really busy on our stalls selling Heyland & Whittle handmade soaps, bric-a-brac and books as well as a huge selection of plants grown by our green fingered experts Stuart and John.

Our gazebo coped very well at keeping the rain off!

ImageBut still the customers came….


When the sun did appear the atmosphere was great and people were very supportive, we sold most of the bric-a-brac and books and a lot of plants – although there are still some available for sale at 6 Chillerton Road if you missed out.
