During the month of March, Roman Road Trust is launching a test-run of a Roman Road Membership Card to give discounts to local shoppers in independent shops and businesses in Roman Road to see if there is appetite from local people for a local membership scheme.
The aim is to encourage local people to shop local and love local.
For this trial-run, Roman Road Trust has enlisted seven businesses to offer exclusive discounts and deals which will be given when customers present a discount code in-store. These businesses are:
20% discount on all traditional sweets
597 Roman Rd
Sweet Treats is a traditional sweet shop in the heart of Roman Road Market. Serving all kinds of traditional sweets, pocket money toys, and ice cream. Sweet Treats can satisfy any sweet tooth and Naz will be more than happy to help you make the perfect Sweet Treat choice.

How do I get the discount code?
We have created a (very!) short survey. Once you have completed the survey, you will be shown a discount code which can be used in the businesses listed above.
All you have to do is mention the code in-store to receive an exclusive Roman Road discount. Discounts and offers can be redeemed from 01/03/19 until 31/03/19 and used for in-store purchases only. Please check with individual businesses if these offers can be used in conjunction with existing offers and deals.
(Please note: the discount code is presented on the confirmation page when completing the survey. Please take a screenshot of the code or remember it before leaving the page.)
What happens next?
After the one-month trial, Roman Road Trust will be assessing the success of the mini-version of the Roman Road Membership Card by speaking to participating businesses and processing the results of the survey. If the results show there is an appetite for the scheme, we will be looking into further developing the Roman Road Membership Card.
