The UK celebrated its first 'Small Business Saturday' on the 7th December this year. It is a grassroots campaign to help small businesses promote themselves and generate trade in their local area.
Dover has many great small business and I popped into one of them, John Angell Jewellers, which has been trading in the area for over 150 years. It was great to chat with the owners about their business and the challenges facing shops like there's today.
I also talked to Cllr Chandler about the positive ways Dover District Council was helping to promote Small Business Saturday, by allowing free parking in Dover on the day.
I look forward to next year's Small Business Saturday!
