The Mill Road Traders’ Association officially formed on the 21st February 2013.

Membership is open to all business owners who operate from Mill Road, or from a directly adjoining street. For more information about why it is beneficial to join the business community, please visit the Membership page.

The group is informal but we have an agreed purpose, or vision statement that all members agree to:

“The Mill Road Traders’ Association exists to protect and promote the diversity and unique character of the shops in the area, by raising the profile and encouraging the use of independent businesses on Mill Road and on directly adjoining streets.  Through sharing our variety of skills, knowledge and experience, we will work together and with other like-minded organisations to improve Mill Road for the benefit of all.”

We believe in promoting small businesses, spending money locally and supporting each other and our local community.

Shapour Meftah & Matthew Williams are joint Chairpersons, their roles are completely voluntary. They Chair the Traders’ Association meetings and act as a representative of the Mill Road business community across the city.

Any member of the Traders’ Association can volunteer for the position.

One thought on “About

  1. I’ve just seen you on ITV News Anglia. I hope you win your battle with the big boys. It is such a shame that they are allowed to come into our small communities and trample all over the hard working small independent business owners. I have an independent Tea Room in the town of March in Cambridgeshire and Costa gained planning to open up last August and they have succeeded in hurting every small independent similar to me since there arrival. They were not needed in the town and do not bring people into the town, they just take up a useful shop that could be used bringing people to the town!
