Crouch End is renowned for its thriving independent shops but many have closed since the recession and more are under threat for many reasons.
The government is continuing to make life hard for small businesses, forcing them to compete with subsidised and tax-avoiding corporations and recently increasing their workload by ordering small businesses to submit quarterly tax bills.
We can all help by shopping locally and spending less online, but what else can we do to help them survive?
Next Tuesday, 12 January at 8pm, Shadow Minister for small businesses Bill Esterson MP will be joining us at 28 Middle Lane for the launch of Save Our Shops.
Come along and find out what you can do to help.
