App will help Bexley residents get discounts

An awards app, which makes it easier for residents to find businesses offering discounts as part of the London Green Points - Bexley scheme, has now been launched.

The scheme is currently available to residents who live in one of the 17,000 flats (in blocks of flats) across the borough.

The app is available for iPhone on the iTunes store and is free to download. Simply search for ‘Local Green Points’ in the app store.

The locator-style app lists all businesses currently providing offers to members of local green points schemes, including the 60 business that have signed up across Bexley. Residents will be able to easily find which businesses around them are providing discounts using the GPS on their iPhone, as well as seeing addresses, websites and contact details of those participating.

Once they’ve found an offer they’d like to take up, all residents have to do is show their London Green Points - Bexley card in store or mention it over the phone. There are a range of discounts on offer, from 10% off at Mambocino Coffee in Erith to 10% off bread and chocolate making workshops at Cocoa and Heart in Bexleyheath.

Stephen Didsbury, head of waste and street services at the London Borough of Bexley, says: “The Local Green Points app is a great way to connect Bexley residents with the local businesses in their high streets. There are a great range of businesses offering all kinds of discounts and the app makes it really easy to find them.”

A full list of participating business is available at as well as on the Local Offers app.

Graham Simmonds, managing director of local green points, says: “This app is a great development for our already successful London Green Points - Bexley scheme and will help members take advantage of the full range of discounts available to them.

“This is great news for Bexley residents as they get exclusive discounts and great news for Bexley businesses as they get extra promotion.”
