This month, a local mum from Wandsworth is attempting a 12-week challenge to ditch all chain stores and supermarkets, only shopping small and supporting independent businesses.

The first week's blog can be viewed here:

This week features Balham and visits to Mick at the Fruit & Veg stall on Hildreth Street, the Blackbird Bakery and the Healthchem Pharmacy.

Please, let us know if you have any suggestions on good local alternatives to the big supermarkets and chains stores.

The pharmacy/chemist on Bellevue Road opposite Wandsworth Common, SW17 7EG. It's been there for years and the Pharmacist/owner is absolutely brilliant.

I spotted your poster about local shop closures
I'm not sure we should worry about Cashino closing - gambling isn't something that I welcome on the high street
