The Caversham Traders Association (CTA) was founded in 2013 to promote Caversham, Emmer Green and local businesses as a thriving community.
Amazingly there are over 600 businesses in our riverside village and many are listed on the Choose Caversham Website – which won a retail award for innovative marketing in 2014.
The Choose Caversham Directory gives details of our many retail outlets including boutiques, beauticians & hairdressers, gyms, estate agents, home furnishing stores and therapists, as well as the vast selection of restaurants, pubs and other businesses. There are also details of schools, social clubs, charities and support associations.
The CTA has liaised with the council and contractors during the redevelopment of the precinct in Church Street, Caversham Town Centre, as well as representing the concerns of local traders. The Association continue to organise events to attract shoppers to the village and support initiatives to improve the general appearance of the area.
The CTA is open to all business owners in the Caversham and Emmer Green area and there is an open invitation to attend our regular monthly meetings.
There is no membership fee. The CTA is funded by revenue from premium listings and advertising on the Choose Caversham Website.
There are exciting plans going forward to ensure Caversham remains the trendy and picturesque place to be as cited on Location, Location, Location – so bookmark ‘Choose Caversham’ to ensure you are up to date with what is happening in your area.
