Small Business Saturday

29th November 2018

Having spent fifteen years helping small businesses get off the ground before coming to Parliament, and having previously served as a Business Minister for two years, I am a passionate supporter of Small Business. It is the true engine of our local, and national, economy.

One of my central missions since becoming an MP has been to promote hard-working entrepreneurs and small business owners in our area by trying to give them a stronger voice, and the support they need. To do this, I set up my Local Business Spotlight on my website, Rural Enterprise Bursaries and my ‘The Norfolk Way’ project.

Through ‘The Norfolk Way’, I set up the Norfolk Innovation Awards to connect talented youngsters and teachers of STEM subjects with innovative businesses in our county. I also co-founded the ‘Norfolk Enterprise Festival’ earlier this year – to give small and medium sized businesses across the county the opportunity to come together in an exciting new forum to share best practice, float ideas and obtain support.

I have also been a keen supporter of our local markets, and regularly visit local businesses to hear how my colleagues and I in Westminster can help them continue to grow and prosper.

Small businesses are KEY to driving what I call a ‘Rural Renaissance’ in our area and I am delighted to be supporting ‘Small Business Saturday’ once again this year.

To celebrate, I will be out in the constituency tomorrow visiting a number of small businesses – and in the run up to Christmas, I would encourage everyone to take the time to visit and get behind their local shops and businesses.
