My Favourite Local Businesses – Part 1


Year four of my feature on the top local businesses in Frimley Green.

This coming Saturday, 5th December, is Small Business Saturday in the UK – a day when we are all encouraged to support our local small businesses.

Once again, I have updated the lists I have published for the past three years, taking this opportunity to plug some of the wonderful small businesses we have in Frimley Green and surrounding area – all of which I have had the pleasure of dealing with on many occasions in the past few years.

I’ve selected my top 15 – of course there are more and I’m sure you have other favourites, but these are mine.

Two By Two Pets – Ansell Road, Frimley
We’re big pet lovers in the Chapman household, having kept (and bred) rabbits, hamsters and fish.  With Mocha and Mericano still going strong into their sixth year we still have our Guinea Pigs plus Sox, a mad Birman Cat.

Every couple of weeks I visit Two By Two to get my food, sawdust and hay as well as treats for the cat.  They are always well stocked and, helpfully, open on Sunday Morning.

Elm Cottage Vets – Frimley Green Road, Frimley Green
Kind of follows on from the one above.  If you love your pet, you need a good vet and the people at Elm Cottage are fab.  Always helpful, accommodating and compassionate . This year Sox the cat had sore eye after a fight but once again the people at Elm Cottage helped her back to full strength.

Doone Lodge Cattery
The third pet-related site, and very local for us just near the corner by the Miners’ Arms pub. Doone have a wonderfully run cattery and are always friendly. They do get booked up in the summer (a good sign I’d say) so worth booking early.

Frimley Green Post Office – Frimley Green Road
The local Post Office has traditionally been at the centre of Village life and for many people it’s an absolute necessity.  Too many post offices are closing and therefore need the support of local people to make a viable business case.
