The T’riffic Traders of the Cowley Road
On Saturday 3rd June, the Cowley Road hosted its first ‘Triffic Traders’ day, organised by Cowley Road Works to celebrate the traders along the Cowley Road.
The Cowley Road is the most amazing street for shopping, mainly with small independent traders. Cowley Road Works, the organisation behind the Cowley Road Carnival decided that this would be the year to start celebrating the shops, bars, restaurants, hairdressers, estate agents and all the other traders to be found along this unique and most diverse street in the city.
Traders were asked to fundraise for the Carnival and decorate their premises for the competition for the best display, won by Thy Spa, traditional Thai massage and beauty spa. They had a magnificent window display, complete with peacock and feathers.
The presentation, made by Sherriff Cllr Mohammed Altaf Khan, he said: “Well done and congratulations to all who took part. They are all part of our community and this event has brought business, community and culture all together.”
Bazz Paris, Founder and director of Thy Spa said: “The Cowley Road is amazing in terms of the variety of the culture. All cultures are here. Carnival is great fun and we are glad to be part of it.”
Runners up in the competition were Premier Lettings and Atomic Burger.
