Shop small on Small Business Saturday

small business saturday

Did you know, tomorrow is 'Small Business Saturday', a campaign that highlights the importance of our small businesses.

Now in its ninth year, the campaign has grown significantly with a record £1.1 billion spent on the day in 2020, and 15.4 million people choosing to shop local.

We have so many amazing small businesses in our town centre and after a challenging year, it’s more important than ever to support them. By shopping locally you can be safe in the knowledge that more of your money is going back into the local economy.

If you're heading into town tomorrow to support our lovely businesses for Small Business Saturday UK, don't forget it's free to park in all Council off-street car parks.
