BRINDIES is a campaign to celebrate Bognor Regis’s unique independent businesses, and the very special people who run them.


‘BRINDIES’ – short for Bognor Regis Independents - tells the unique stories of these one-of-a-kind businesses, giving readers an insight into the businesses and characters that create the town centre experience. The goal is to inspire people to explore the huge range of shops and services and help spread the word about the Bognor Regis’s ‘Indie Heroes.’

Bognor Regis has a rich and eclectic community of indie businesses that not only support one another, but impact on the wider community.  They strive to make Bognor Regis a better place - even in the adversity of such challenging times for our high street.  It has been inspiring to see such commitment and understand more about what led people to start their businesses, and what keeps driving them forwards.  BRINDIES aims to celebrate this essential community by introducing the human beings behind the scenes, as well as showcasing their unique offering. We hope that BRINDIES gives an insight to the people behind the counter, website, or social media pages, and brings the ‘humanness’ back to the forefront of our minds.
