My Indie Gems

Ashleigh Cornelius

Name 3 of your favourite indies:

For Ashleigh, our CEO, naming just three indies is a tough ask.

Currently doing a 365 indie challenge, Ashleigh’s tasked with shopping at least one independent business every day for a year, so he’s visited more than a few. This 365 mission was inspired by the 4th July Independents’ Day campaign.


“My 365 challenge has introduced me to so many great indies, but if I had to think of three that really stood out on my recent journey, they’d be…

Woods of Hollingbourne in Hollingbourne – The perfect village shop | @woodsofhollingbourne

The Bow Window in Lenham – Every village needs a cafe like this | @thebowwindow

Tiffinn & Thali in East Malling – My favourite and most local Indian takeaway | @tiffinandthali
