Bailiffs employed by the council attempted to take the tables and chairs out of a restaurant which had refused to pay a controversial business levy this morning. Shah Ahmed, owner of the Star of India in High Road, Leytonstone was one of 33 traders who refused to hand over cash to E11 Bid Company despite being handed liability orders, ordering them to pay up at Waltham Forest Magistrates Court in May. This morning at 10am bailiffs contracted by Waltham Forest council attended the restaurant and after initially refusing Mr Ahmed was forced to pay £835, which included legal fees. In 2007 business premises in E11 opted to pay a levy to a private company rather than the usual business rates to the council. The levy cost Mr Ahmed £90 a year and the money collected would then be used to improve the look of the area and attract more trade. Waltham Forest council is responsible for collecting the levy but Mr Ahmed hit back at them for ‘hiding’ behind the private company. He said: “It was really intimidating and we have no choice but to pay up, even though the E11 Bid are not giving us the services for our money. “I am lucky that I can pay the bill but for other small businesses in the area it will be devastating. I have heard they are turning up to people’s homes to reclaim money. “It is simply unacceptable and unethical. How is a small business supposed to prosper if bailiffs are coming here to take tables and chairs. The restaurateur is also the chairman of the Leytonstone Festival. The community-led celebration was unsuccessful in gaining council funding for the first time this year and faces a £15,000 shortfall. Mr Ahmed said: “The E11 Bid could have stepped in and offered £5,000 towards it, it is exactly the kind of event they should be promoting. It brought loads of people into the area but we had to fundraise the difference ourselves. The company has been plagued by financial mismanagement over a number of years but is said to be back on track by chairman Fawad Sheikh who maintained May's court case result “reinforces the validity” of the company. Disgusting. Am appalled at this disgusting Council. Shah Ahmed is an asset to our borough. Instead of supporting him the council would rather try and ruin his business and the Leytonstone festival When will Waltham Forest residents wake up to how terrible our so called representatives are - and.

Seats can be put together in less than 60 seconds, and table needs only 2 minutes to be assembled by one person. REDMOND, WA — Charles Dugan, president of American Image Displays, today announced the introduction of Magic Tables and Chairs, providing exhibitors with imprinted trade show chairs and square trade show tables for less than the cost of furniture... Before the availability of this product, exhibitors were stuck with the only two options available: renting or purchasing furniture on-site. Both come at high cost, and don’t allow for the personalization available with the Magic Table and Chair package. “4 trade show chairs and table ship in one case, and each piece can be covered in its own graphic to display the exhibitor’s logo or product name,” says Dugan. “Both the sides and tops of the chairs and table can be imprinted with full-color graphics, and the set comes with an optional compact shipping case. The very light weights reduce drayage and shipping costs dramatically. Magic chairs also come in double wide options that seat two people comfortably. The table is counter height, making it a perfect size for lead gathering or displaying products, supporting up to 250 pounds. There are no small parts, and no tools are needed for assembly. The seats can be put together in less than 60 seconds, and the table needs only 2 minutes to be assembled by one person. Dugan adds, “Packing is just as quick, which means no missed flights on your way out of town after a show. This stylish, modern and durable furniture comes with a one-year warranty, giving exhibitors a great look with peace of mind. Small and medium-sized exhibitors looking to solve their seating problems are encouraged to contact American Image Displays for more information.

Its experienced, creative in-house graphics department offers wide format printing capabilities and fast turn-around for every client’s needs. Source: news.thomasnet.com
It will be no different this weekend. So on Saturday, a group of volunteers gave new purpose — and a welcome splash of color — to a pair of under-used public spaces. Their hope, is that a dozen upcycled Adirondack-style chairs and handmade tables, will bring some life to the former Wiss Hotel site at routes 5 and 19 and the public walkway on Main Street between Fusion Dance Center and Vintage & Vogue. “This is to show that vacant areas can be utilized and improved,” said Candace Bower of the Main Street Revitalization Committee, which worked with the Rotary Club on the project. “Especially this one,” Bower said while at the Wiss Hotel lot, vacant for more than two years and now a patch of undulating, weedy grass. ‘‘It’s in the middle of the village,” she said. “It’s an important location. Placement of the chairs and tables on Saturday, was the culmination of a months-long effort. Volunteers spent a good part of the winter breaking down donated pallets, pulling nails, sanding the wood and then assembling and painting the new furniture. Volunteers also included Jerry Warren, Tony Gugino, Marcia McKenzie, Mary Young-Murray, Jennifer Keys, Lisa and John Compton, Carol Wolfe and David Damico. They chose mostly bright colors — orange, yellow and purple, with a couple in stained wood. Keys said its part of a nationwide trend known as “tactical urbanism,” in which low-cost steps are taken to improve public spaces. The tactic of creating homemade seating for public spaces has a term of its own: “chair-bombing. The Wiss Hotel was razed in April 2013. The village-owned lot has since been used as the site of a community Christmas Tree, but is otherwise unused. Mayor Greg “Porp” Rogers said last month that no one has offered to purchase the property. The Village Board did agree to have the lot surveyed, to get a more accurate sense of its boundary lines. The public walkway is more problematic. An attractive iron gate faces Main Street, but the walls are pocked due to loosened and fallen bricks. The village has not made a decision on how to fix the problem. Keys said the chair project would be the first step in a plan the Revitalization Committee has to decorate the walkway. “The hope is that the village will step up and address the walls so we can finish the plan next summer, said Keys, who chairs the Revitalization Committee.
