The Pamper Shop down the Hole

From The Rabbit Hole…”The Rabbit Hole E15 is a great venue to run workshops for parents and children alike. Of course down time is just as important as fun and our next pamper day is Friday 29th August for true relaxation through the hands of Jackie. So perhaps have some time out yourself and pop in for any drink of your choice (for example freshly squeezed Rabbit Hole Lemonade) and a reflexology treatment for only £10. You will find us between Morrisons and Maryland Station (bus route 69, 257, 308) and 15 minutes walk from Stratford Station.  For more information

Meanwhile there’s a women in business enterprise opening in St James’ Street E17 area and it’s for 2015/16. People can show interest by applying for a rental place in the new development.


The Pamper Shop is an information sharing service which can offer practical pampering or direct you to practitioners but is not profit-making at all. In fact there is no funding of any sort. The Pamper Shop has applied for a space though at ” Rooms of Our Own” because why not? Someone else may pay the rent.

Indulgence…because you’re worth it….goody bags

Brides of Culture do events all over parts of London in prestigious hotels.  Up Your Streeters went along to a posh hotel by the Excel Centre to check out the fabrics then came back to Jewel Road E17 to learn about disappearing bees before collecting free meadow- flower seeds!

At the newly refurbished Hackney Town Hall on Saturday 15th March there’s a day of designs and exhibitions and seminars, of hair and glitter, sequins and lace all for free courtesy of Brides of Culture, an enterprise showcasing multi-cultural bridal and romantic must-haves.
