Crafty Arts in Bryant Avenue won the London and South East’s People Choice Award at the ceremony which was held in London’s luxurious Mayfair Hotel.

Natasha Necati, business development director at Crafty Arts said: “It’s absolutely amazing, it’s a huge honour because this award is one our customers have chosen - they voted for us and it means so much to us.

“We didn’t expect this award at all, we were so shocked when it was announced that we all just looked at each other in amazement, we had to be reminded to get up of our seats to collect our award.

“The whole team has worked so hard for this - we’re so glad the hard work has paid off.”

This isn’t the first taste of victory for Crafty Arts as they won Business of the Year at the Havering Business Awards in 2016.

Since then the business has continued to go from strength-to-strength, which Natasha puts down to the personal, family-like service they offer.

“We’ve got a close-knit team who really care about what we do,” Natasha said.

“We’re a second generation family business, following in the footsteps of Jay’s dad who worked so hard to get this place up and running and our mantra is to treat our customers like we would each other - like family.

“What makes this award so special is it’s the people who’ve been coming into the store and used our service who voted for us - we’re so grateful for this.”

Crafty Arts sells a range of artist’s essentials such as acrylic paints, paintbrushes, surfaces and pencils to crafters favourites including cutting dies, blendable marker pens and cardstock.

Natasha explained that the people of Romford have been instrumental in their success.

“Being in Romford has been so important for us, it’s where Jay grew up, where I went to school - it’s a place that has been a huge part of our lives,” she said.

“We love engaging with and giving back to the local area, hopefully this award reflects the family-like community here.”
