A MEAL AT LA PIAZZETTA

It’s not often that I proclaim to know much about anything. However, it can’t harm once in a while and I always find Italian food a reason to profess one’s enthusiasm. Chic antipasti, authentically crusty pizzas, heaped spirals of delicious pasta and some perfectly crafted secondi plucked right from the…

TESTIMONIALS WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

WE LOVE THE MUSTCARD

"It’s a brilliant idea for the local community and a great way to support local independent businesses. We love The Mustcard."

Van Glue Beauty, Midhurst

HAPPY CUSTOMERS

"A fantastic opportunity for local businesses and customers alike! I use The Mustcard for both of my Fernhurst based businesses and we have a lot of very happy customers!"

Banyan, Fernhurst

WHAT COULD BE BETTER?

"Such a fantastic scheme. As a business we have an offer on with the Mustcard which has given us a platform to reach more local customers. But more than that I have been personally using my card to shop locally in Haslemere and Midhurst. Some of the discounts are brilliant. The best part for me is the fabulous write ups on local shops and pubs that I otherwise would not have known about! We have visited so many new places because of the Mustcard, it has opened up our local area. I love scrolling through the business listings and exploring all the new places! Supporting the local independents, what could be better than that! Thank you Mustcard."

May and Grace Bridal, Haslemere

IT'S THE INSPIRATION!

"I don't know how i lived before this card came about! The Value for money is unmatched! After 1-2 uses, you have made your money back and then you have the rest of the year to save? Um, yes please! It's not just the value for money. It's the inspiration. I find myself quite frequently going onto the website to find places for me an my girlfriend to visit! so yeah, its a no-brainer. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a Mustcard. The bigger this gets, the more we all benefit."

Luke Cullis

INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!

"What an incredible opportunity for local people and businesses alike! We love the sense of community it bring to everyone."

The Kings Arms, Fernhurst

EVERYONE WANTS A DISCOUNT

“I’m looking forward to being able to try new places that offer a discount. A little change from the usual chains.”

Narinder Kaur

IT'S A NO BRAINER!

"It's a no brainer! Tailor it to suit your business and it doesn't cost you a bean. We've already had business from it as a result."

Woodie and Morris, Haslemere

KEEP OUR TOWNS ALIVE

In today’s fast changing world the things we value are shifting equally as fast. The move away from chain style shops and departments stores to online ordering for example. Within this the Independent shops have become the marker, not only for defining our towns, by giving them identity and individuality, but by increasing the sense of community. Supporting Independent small and family businesses keeps our towns alive. The Mustcard is a superb, affordable way for us to say ‘YES, we are in. YES we value and support our town’s individuality, it’s personality and it’s people’. The additional twist is that, in so doing, these amazing shops and their owners reward Mustcard Members with special discounts!! It’s a true win win!
