Claire Perry MP is supporting Small Business Saturday on Saturday 5th December. The campaign highlights small business success stories and encourages people to shop in local, small, independent businesses and use local services instead of national brands.
Many businesses across the area are involved, including ‘Local Uncovered’ and Pewsey Vale Tourism which is offering local businesses a draw to tempt people in, and help drive footfall to Pewsey Vale Businesses.
Commenting, Claire said:
“Small businesses are such a vital and vibrant part of Britain with a record 5.4 million small businesses in the UK, providing jobs for nearly 26 million people. The success of our economy is built on the hard work and determination of the people who run and work for them.
That is why I am making a big effort this Saturday and in the run up to Christmas to support as many local businesses as I can!”
