Robert Goodwill said: “I’m delighted to support Small Business Saturday and I was pleased to hear that the business is going well. It is important that we back the independent businesses in our community.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and our Industrial Strategy is building an environment in which they can continue to thrive.
“It is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign that highlights small business successes,”
