MP SUPPORTS SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY IN NORTH OXFORDSHIRE

On Saturday 5 December, small businesses in North Oxfordshire marked ‘Small Business Saturday’ (SBS), a national campaign which highlights small business success stories and encourages people to shop locally.

Now entering its third year, SBS is the UK’s most successful small business campaign. Last year, 16.5 million people shopped in a small independent business, spending more than £500 million on the day.  The initiative is supported by all major political parties and has been growing in popularity since 2013.

Speaking on the day, Victoria said, “We are very lucky to have a brilliant variety of small businesses in North Oxfordshire, not only in our towns but also in the rural areas. Small businesses are a vital part of British society and deserve our support all year round. It is very encouraging that the number of small businesses in our area is continuing to increase as confidence returns to the economy.
