Hammond's Butchers & Delicatessen based at the north end of Kew Bridge Road was officially opened by Mary Macleod, MP for Brentford and Isleworth on 15th April. Amongst Mary's many areas of expertise, she is the Small Business Ambassador for London.
Owned by long time local resident, Don Ferguson and his brother Derek, and with various local residents forming part of Team Hammond, this venture forms part of the ongoing regeneration of the area and a return to the traditional values of the high street which is currently much vaunted across the media and promoted via Government initiatives.
In fact Hammond's offers a new start also for Ken Hammond, who with over thirty years of experience from his butchers in Thames Road, W4 is relocating to the new shop and heading up the butcher's side of the operation. As Ken says:
"I'm really excited about the new shop and so are many of my very loyal, long-time customers. With the increased size we will be able to offer even more of the finest award winning organic and free range poultry, meat and game from across the UK. We also have plans to expand the range of our fantastic Hammond sausages which already have something of a following in the area!'
The guiding principle throughout the shop is to offer customers excellent, authentic and unique produce from the best independent producers which can be found in the supermarkets or chains.
Hammonds' is keen to use as many local producers as possible and already has a local company supplying the beans for their very special in-house barista coffee; a nearby bakery supplying the bread and delicious pastries and a fantastic range of English cheeses from a dairy in Surrey which will delivery daily.
