Wow, what a day! I'm incredibly grateful to Small Business Saturday for inviting me to the House of Lords as of the UK's top 100 small businesses!
Small Business Saturday is a not-for-profit organisation actively helping local high streets and communities throughout the UK by providing grants for local high streets to organise community events.
We receive one in Hanham; and since opening this has meant that I've been able to organise community events on the High Street including the annual Halloween and Easter trails.
The Hanham High & Community Partnership also actively celebrates Small Business Saturday every year by using the funding to hold the annual Christmas Market on Small Business Saturday.
Director of Small Business Saturday, Michelle Ovens MBE said:
“Businesses are drawn from every corner of the UK, reflecting the vibrancy of the UK’s 5.6 million small businesses.
Small Business Saturday’s increasing popularity means it was harder than ever to choose just 100 of this country’s incredible 5.6 million small businesses to showcase, but we believe those we have chosen are true representatives of the diverse, creative and inspiring heroes at the heart of our communities."
