Nominate your favourite small business urges Skipton MP Julian Smith
8:00am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
A list of nominated businesses will be compiled ahead of Small Business Saturday – December 7 – where the work done by small firms across the UK will be celebrated.
The campaign is being backed by Prime Minister David Cameron who said: “Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy, providing nearly half of all private sector jobs. Since 2010 we’ve seen over 300,000 of them start up.”
Mr Smith added: “Yorkshire is one of the most entrepreneurial parts of the country and it is those people who are starting or growing a business who are driving Britain’s recovery. It is important we celebrate those small businesses and thank everyone who is creating jobs and taking a risk to support our economy. So, if you know of a great entrepreneur or great business in your area, let us know.”
