The Shadow Minister for Small Businesses says we can all help out by supporting our independent traders.

He told staff at the magazine: “If people just head to their local butchers once in a while rather than buying all their meat from a huge supermarket, for example, they can help out a small business while getting a high quality product.”
Toby praised the work of Twist for giving a platform to small businesses to advertise to the people most likely to benefit from their services. The magazine recently won a ‘Highly Commended’ trophy in the 2013 National Magazine Awards for the quality of its front pages.
Coming up on Saturday 7th December is Small Business Saturday, an event designed to promote local enterprises and encourage people to move away from buying products from big businesses once in a while and instead go to their local, independent alternatives.
