The Phantom’s Little Black Book

I am always being asked for the names of really excellent tradespeople in Greenwich. So, due to popular demand, I’ve decided to create The Phantom’s Little Black Book – a specifically non-exhaustive weblist of people that have either done exceptional work for me, my friends, or people I really trust. And I’m looking for entries now.

I’m not interested in just doing a list of services that people think ‘aren’t too bad,’ or that just ‘did the job.’ I want the tradespeople that go that extra mile – the guys you can really put your hand on your heart and say you would recommend to your best friend. I don’t care how short the list is as long as, hopefully, it’s a worthwhile one.

I’m afraid I’m just about to be a bit exclusive now though. In order to make this work (and so I don’t get any dodgy builders sending me glowing recommendations for themselves) I’ve had to make up a few rules and, newbies, you may get the hump with me at this point.

At the moment, “people I really trust” means those lovely folk who regularly contribute, non-anonymously, to The Phantom’s daily blog.

You know who you are. Those of you who put your heads above the parapet and say stuff here on a regular basis. I don’t mean real names, of course – just those people who, albeit with a nickname, have a presence here and I can feel I ‘know.’ Sadly, of course, “Anon” just doesn’t cut it…

Tradespeople will be included at my whim, and all will carry the warning that just because they’ve done good work for me or someone I know doesn’t mean they’re going to be any good for you. Caveat Emptor…

The site will go live very soon. Look out, too, for the long-promised links section and a somewhat tongue-in-cheek FAQs page. Do let me know what you think. And if you have any suggestions for truly excellent entries, I’d be delighted to hear from you at the usual address…
